There always .seems to be some new record for the Mason City high school musicians to break. . Again iis year at the state festival at owa City they won the highest number of high ratings. The new record s setting an exceptionally high average--practically all of the entrants winning either superior or excellent. Of the 19 events Mason City en- :ered, -the local musicians received eight superiors, ten excellents and one good. Not only did this set a new record in high percentage of ranking but set a new all time high at the state music festival for the number of honors won by any school, providing a new sensational triumph for local musicians. All departments, band instrument taught by Carleton L. Stewart, string instrument taught by Marjorie Smith and vocal department taught by Miss Ellen Smith contributed to this smashing victory. High Banks Listed. Ranking of superior was won by the Girls' glee club, small woodwind group, small brass group, small string group, Evelyn Cheesman as violin soloist, Homer Hockenberry as oboe soloist, Ruth Buehler as marimba soloist and Barbara Scott as piano soloist. The ranking of excellent was won by Lloyd Nichols, trombone; Earl Fladness, clarinet; Jack Weir, French horn; Robert Runyan, cornet; Bob Major, flute; Doris Garvey, bassoon; Ruth Buehler, snare drum soloist; mixed small vocal group, mixed chorus and boys' glee club. Carleton Rohr received good in viola solo. Barbara Scott, pianist who received superior ranking, was Mason City's only contestant at Iowa City Saturday. This unusual circumstance in which all the other Mason City musicians were home on what is ordinarily considered the most colorful day of the festival is because the local school did not enter two of its strongest events--band and orchestra. This policy has been followed the past few years after several state victories in which these groups qualified directly for the national. Band Works for National. In three special busses the local musicians returned home early Saturday morning. Mr. Stewart called a rehearsal of the band for Saturday morning and the players swung immediately into continuing preparations for the national contest to be held at Cleveland. The Girls' glee club, which ranked superior, sang "Lullaby" by Brahms in German and "Slumber Songs" by Colin Taylor, both a capella, and then "What Can Lamkins Do?" by Samuel Coleridge Taylor, the latter with piano accompaniment. Members of the glee clubs are: Ruth Anderson, Betty Baumgartner, Jean Baumgartner, Jane Berner, Dorothy Campbell, Beth Carter, Geraldine Cathcart, Grace Ann Chenoweth, Ruth Dougall, Lorctta Ewing. Virginia Farmakis, Patricia Far- Helen Harris, Peggy Heneman, Alice Hood, Ruth Irons, Ina Mae Ivin, Ruth Jones, Sarah Katz, Virginia Lee, Mae Lysne, Teressa McFarlin, Marjorie MacArthur. Sophie Negomir, Faythe Nolter- ieke, Dorthy Payne, Eileen Payne, Jane Satter, Charlotte Storer, Winifred Storer, Alva Skram, Frances Stinehart, Sara Stevens, Virginia Stoakes, Gretchen Weber and Maud Wilson. Dorothy Swift is accompanist. SKGWlNWriiQJ THE WIND BLOWS Latest comment on the "wheel chair brigade" as gleaned from the estimable Mason City Rotary Journal, prepared weekly By Secretary Larry Kistau for the membership of the club: "Frank 'C. Goodman sends us' the following letter containing a · clipping from, the Globe-Gazette: ·Wanted--To rent wheel chair, 823 S. Wash. Ph. 3292.' His comments are: 'My dear Larry: If you will give me the name of the Rotarian who inserted the- attached ad in a recent issue of the Globe-Gazette, I will be only too glad him in touch with the owner of the very latest in wheel chairs. Stream lined, knee action, etc. Trusting I may be of some service to a member in distress, I am, sincerely, Frank C. Goodman.' "As-'you perhaps know Frank has not been a member of our club for a number of years and therefore is not · up-to-date on the subject of the new Rotary wheel chairs. For his information we would report to him that all of our wheel chairs have been motorized with special modern devices. Frank should have been present at our meeting last Wednesday at the Y. M. C. A. He would have marveled at the. performance of our Rotary club volley ball team and would have gloried in their clubs." victory over the other "My wife wondered where I was last night, now she'll know," said Carl Parker as the photographer snapped the camera on his group at the Kiiranis dinner in the police station Thursday noon. DEPARTMENTAL APPOINTMENTS MADE. Latest developments in Mason City's city manager form of government: Quoting from communication of Mayor W. S. Wilcox, making departmental appointments among members of city council: "To act advisory to the city manager, the idea being that each coun oilman may familiarize himself es pecially with the affairs and con duct .of the departments assigned t him, that he may intelligently ad vise with the manager and maki recommendations to the council on matters pertaining to the depart ment which is assigned to him.

Ray Pauley--Water, sewer and city buildings. ' Arleigh Marshall -- Police department and fire department. H. C. Brown--Accounting and finance. Davey and Brown--City hall equipment. Marshall and Davey -- Public playgrounds and parks. MAYBE THEY JUST CAN'T BELIEVE IT. The good old'days are here again when there are more jobs than men --if gangs working on the railroad are any criterion to go by. Monday when the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific railroad sent out a call for a gang of 100 men for summer's employment on the railroad, only 10 men reported for work. The indication would seem that the employment situation is not so bad. More men responded later in the week, however, whan the second call was sent out. Maybe they didn't understand what a job was on the first call.
