The juniors "wuv" the seniors tenderly. That's why the juniors dunkec the seniors in the creek Thursday. II is also why the seniors tried to dunk the juniors. If it weren't for our better judgment ( ? ) we would delve into the psychology of dunking and being dunked --in the creek, we mean From the standpoint of the superficial observer this traditiona struggle seems as silly as it is an cient. One is likely to "catch" as phasia or something, but no one does because juniors and senior can "take it." Even so, that's bet ter than hydrophobia, the condition into which these rival classmate lapse when spring comes 'round. Actually, it is immaterial who i "pulled through." The result is th same. The victims are humbled an the victors go to pieces altogether Soon everyone recovers from th dunking and brotherly love reign, again.--R. H. P.

ASK RAY SENEY COLORFUL P L A Y TO BE GIVEN BY SENIORS MAY 15 'Annie Laurie" First of Its Kind Ever to Be Staged by High School. As the M. c. H. S. stage becomes Jie grand Maxwelton mansion of Scotland, senior - Thespians under the direction of Miss Ruth A. Irons put final touches on the colorful picture of Wall Spence's "Annie Laurie" which they -will present Friday evening, May 15. Not only has the cast become "wrapped up" in the Scottish tongue, but they trip the light fantastic of the same vein. To the background of some of the most novel lighting effects ever produced here, 12 members of the large cast will dance an old Scottosh waltz. Portraying the roles of guests in the drama, Jean O'Harrow, Sylvia Cohen, Edith Skoglund, Mary Richardson, Gwendolyn Bell, Marian O'Harrow, Roger Beemer, Bud Brown Barron Boyd, Dick Holman, Otis King and Max Allison are to be featured in the dance scene. Then, too, Ruth Van- derwicken and Teddy Young will interpret the native highland fling. Back Stage Staff Working. Dean Huxtable and Bill Smith, stage managers are working with Bill Blackmore, John Gilmor'e, the electricians, and Bill Bennett who has charge of the microphone over which many sound effects will be obtained, in order to perfect the stage setting and effects used for the play. Domini Haynes as the feminine ead, Annie, and Bill Butler who ilays- opposite her have been employing every fiber in their artistic abilities in order to relive the im- nortal romance of the nineteenth entury. Their roles contain much difficult technique and require knowledge of the life of that day. Shepard "Flays Heavy" Bole. Cast in the most prominent character role, Bob Shepard is confronted with coping with the "heaviest" characterization in the drama. Shepard plays the father of Annie Laurie and does all in his power to jut an end to the colorful romance Be Smart Have your school clothes Cleaned and Pressed regularly.

Ave. Music Mothers Form Their Own Miniature Band By MARTIN YOSELOFF C'mon and hear the Music Mammies "go to town." Having become totally tired of just being mammas the Music Mothers have started saying it with music. And can they? Transforming the Wagner-Mozart string room into their "set," 30 melodious music mammies "went to town" Tuesday evening while their curious offspring oh'd and ah'd the miniature band. (Or was it a carnival?) Employing the instruction books of Will Storer, who was "batoning" for them, the full-fledged "music mongers" displayed a technique at tooting that would probably have made Wagner and Mozart become Fuller brush salesmen! Tired of baking cookies and "Tom Thumbing" five year olds while their Dickies and Dorothys were rating the "stimulating Stewart stick," the mothers have determined to put an end to the high school band's "stealing the whole show." Now they're haying a "high old time" as they realize they too, can make saxophones shriek, clarinets squeak, oboes squeal, basses "boo," and drums reverberate. Band Out for Title. The Mohawk band is out for a title--well that's nothing! Their mammies are going to compete against the local Lions club soon. They all have a marvelous "method in their madness!" Immediately before the hand packs up for the Cleveland escapade, the mothers and the Lions will appear in contest-concert at which they'll vie to "walk off with the bouquets" (and judges' ballots.) The proceeds will help give the band a fair financial send-off to Cleveland. Meanwhile they're not losing a second in preparing to tell 'em with a swing. In a secluded practice room sits Mrs. H. E. Kennedy, "chieftess" of the music mongers who with the help of a Cub reporter attempted to figure out which end of the cornet to blow into. Watch Out, Whiteman! They're out to give Mason Cityans a show all right, and that fellow by the name of Paul Whiteman had better go back to selling peanuts, because those Music Mothers will make one forget that "Rhapsody in Blue." Music never will be the same. (? 0 . ,, Now the M. C. H. S. "bandsters and "bandsterenas" will no longer wear "the musical pants" around home. They're starting to form a, Kids- Klub already, with hopes of sending their mothers to China or some where.

Ph. 2272 John Thompson Chosen Junior Class- President Total of 319 Pupils* Numbered in Third Year Class. The M. C. H. S. junior class, with a total of 319 students, under the sponsorship of Miss Dorothy Pag- enhart, instructor in home economics, became an institution in the high school auditorium Thursday morning. John Thompson, who made an outstanding record in football and baseball and is captain of the 193637 wrestling squad, was elected president of the class. John in addition to his sports activities has ranked high scholastically through out his high school curriculum, having merited position on the honor roll during his freshman and sophomore years. Johnny is 12 inches shorter than the senior proxy, Howard Stoccker, who leads the 289 in the class of '36. They make a real pair, both having enviable athletic records. Choose Blue and Gold. The third year students chose blue and gold as their class colors prior to challenging the seniors for the annual tug-of-war. Reuben Nyquist acted as chairman of the event. Other officers elected by the juniors include Millie Negomir, vice president and Kenneth Banning, sec retary-treasurer. Millie has been outstanding in ar throughout her three years in high school, and merited "superior" in the 1936 Iowa art contest. She ha, also been active in dramatics, anc has ranked high scholastically in her classes. Banning in Athletics. Kenneth Banning has been promi nent in his work on the gridiron, a well as the Mohawk basketbal team. "I'm happy to merit the office o president" Johnny told a Cub re porter with a broad smile, "I'll cer tainly do my best to measure up t what the students expect of me." Miss Pagenhart was emphatic i her confidence in the class. "They'i a fine class," she said, "and- eve though we've started late, we' show the seniors a gala 'affair."-M. Y. uniors' President --I'liolo by Wrk JOHN THOMPSON Class Sponsor SPRING PRACTICE STARTS FOR GRID PLAYERS AT PARK Thompson, Wood, Banning, Wallace, Fletcher, Best Backfield Bets. The helmeted warriors of the Mohawk gridiron army have again donned their armor in preparation for their annual spring football practice at Roosevelt stadium. Assisted by Earl G e r a r d , Coach (Chick) Sutherland is dividing, his time between the high school and junior college baseball teams to get the football candidates rounded into condition and a possible lineup on next year's powerful eleven. The linemen hold their drills one week while the following week the centers and backficlders will learn new formations and plays, thus giving each player a chance to receive individual instruction in his particular field. The backfield centering around John Thompson, Wayne Wood, Kenny Banning, Jack Wallace and Everett Fletcher is developing into a speedy and shifty quintet of ball handlers. Chick is forming the nucleus of the line around Carlton Rohr and John "Monk" Hert, the heavyweights of the squad. Other promising candidates who were on the squad last season are: Jack Grupp, Tom Rye, Roy Connelly, Don Leake, Presley Green and Marvin Balck. All pro-season indications point to a fast and powerful Mohawk football team that should be able to do a good job of defending the laurels already won by previous M. C. H. S. elevens in holding their own against some of the leading teams of Iowa and Minnesota.--J. R. A. PUBLISHED BY M. C. H. S. Mason City Band Is Preparing fo Contest in Ohio DOROTHY PAGENHAKT Works of Local Art Students in Demand for School Exhibit Mrs. Harriet B. Crabb, art instructor in M. C. H.

Don't spend money Before you earn it. The lesson is simple, Be sure you learn it! Budget your income And stretch it far. Pay cash at Penney's Where bargains are! After "thumbin 1 " my way to the Drake relays last Saturday, I felt well repaid for my efforts as I saw record after record being broken in an afternoon crammed full of thrills by a field with the pick of the nation's star trackstei-s. Glenn Cunningham, "superb" Kansas rniler, captured my attention as the star of the afternoon as he competed against a large field of stars to win the special 1,000 yard dash and set a new world's record as his legs like "pistons" performed with the greatest precision and ease. The beautiful sun-tanned southern athletes and the bronzed boys frc-m the coast caused many a girl to give an envious sigh as they paraded before the fans. Bill Wagner, senior pole vaulter and dash man, will lead the "track- sters" this season as they hope to stage a comeback to reach the record breaking heights of 1929-1930. Cecil Mott, 95 pound freshman, has the distinction of being the first "freshie" to ever win a letter in wrestling'. Mott will be one of the leading contenders for a varsity berth next season. In preparation for entering the national band contest in Cleveland, Ohio May 14, 15 and 16, the Mohawk band under the direction of Carleton L.
