Differences Between Customs Are Brot Out The differences between American and English customs wevo brot out by Miss Luelda Carleton in an informal talk given before' the Junior college assembly Wednesday. Miss Carleton spoke chiefly of her Impressions and her most interesting experiences. The_ changing of the. guard at Buckingham Palace was described by the t speaker as well as Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. "Rotten Row, the fashionable bridle path in the London part of Hyde Park gets Its name originally from' the French term 'route de rol' meaning .king's road," observed Miss Carleton. "It is very strange to an American to see the left hand traffic which is in operation in most European countries." Mention was made of the idiomatic differences in. the English language spoken in London and tha .leisurely character of the people was dwelt upon as. opposed to our much more hurried- life. An amusing note was introduced with the candid comment that/ "English breakfasts were a real joy after several weeks of continental breakfasts of hard rolls and bad coffee."

His feet are too small! Oh, what a nose! Cut off some of that leg! My hands are twisted! Where are my feet?"-, . The casual passerby might wonder what all the comment might be in the art department of the Lincoln school these days. The show Is the answer--not a circus that usually, comes out of the spring of the year--but a real marionette extravaganza. Dolls that walk and dolls that talk--fairy-like actors on a "tiny stage-^that is the unbelievable coming event' to be presented by the students of Miss Jean Marsh at the Lincoln school · the latter part of April, at which time Cinderella will come to life a la. marionette. ' 'Gave jack and Bean Stalk. Two years ago, the pupils of the art department, under the same director, gave Jack and tha Bean Stalk with remarkablei success. The production ttiis year, selected and written by the students, tends to even greater proportions and finer work In construction of the marion- ettes than the initial production of the school. And the most remarkable part of the early work on the production Is the manner in which the students engage themselves in - work th'at 'is tedious and tiring. Jfey Need Policeman. In the cozy art room of the school, the great tables are divided into imaginary sections. One corner represents a shoe'shop'where the tiny footwear Is manufactured for the production. Another corner represents the beauty shop where the marionettes' faces are molded and painted. There is a hospital where the bodies are assembled, a dressmaking- shop, a tailor shop, etc. Later, there will be scene studios and electrical shops. There will also be a corner of the room set off for the furniture man. And as the marionette city grows, a tiny policeman may. be needed to wander about a short-circuit beat. The' play is being produced en tirely by the pupils with the aid of the art and the manual training departments. BASKETEERS IN SPRING GAMES Tournament to Determine Class Champions of School. One of the most popular of spring sports at the high school--class Dasketball--has been started, and ;wo tourneys are now in process.

Closing the spring football season a grid team captained by Bob Burns romped over a team led by Bob Evans,.by a 20 to 0 score, in a scrimmage game at East Park. Detra scored two touchdowns, both spectacular ones. The first was made thru a pass thrown from Burns. The rangy end caught the pass and ran thru the remaining opposition for the first counter for Burns' team. G. Stoecker then intercepted a pass and raced for a touchdown. A safety, scored when Evans was caught behind his goal line because of a bad pass from center, netted the Bum» team two moro points. , · Detra Stars. ^ Detra then blocked a kick, nabbed the ball, and scored six more points for the wining team. Kaufman and Burns aided their team by getting off some long punts. The winning factor for Burns' eleven was the continual use of their passing attack which was very effective. Mac- Mlllan and Norqulst played nice defensive games for the Burns team, while Cliff Jones and Suter were the defensive stars for Evans' grid- ders. Suter, the cage star, also played a good offensive game, handling the pigskin almost as successfully as he does in the cage sport. The tepjns, on the whole, displayed a! somewhat ragged playing but they show great promise for next year, according to "Chick" Sutherland, Mohawk grid coach. New Men in Lineup.
