High School Music Vocal music teachers, instrumental music teachers, and super- The Pirates are going strong this season. Fayette will provide stiff competition in this important conference contest Friday afternoon. COME OUT AND SUPPORT THE TEAM! intendents from all the schools in Howard, Winneshiek, Allamakee, Fayette, and Clayton counties have been invited to attend a meeting to be held at the Postville high school on Tuesday evening, October 5. The purpose of this meeting will be to attempt to secure a modification of the music contests as now held so that they will better serve the welfare of music students and the communities. This meeting will be an outgrowth of the meeting of the instrumental instructors held in connection with the Tri-County Teachers institute at Decorah recently. At this meeting the instrumental instructors agreed that music contests now held did not promote the cause of music as much as they should. It is hoped that the series of music contests at least for these five counties in the northeastern corner, of the state may be modified under the sponsorship of the Iowa High School Music association. The Postville meeting is being called by the group of instrumental instructors who met at Decorah. Members for the boys quartet and the madrigal group were selected this week. With the announcement of the'results of these tryouts, the last of the vocal small groups have been chosen. Mem- tiers of the boys quartet include Cloy Miene, John White, Merle Meyer, and Lyle Schultz. Members of the madrigal group are Ruth Ann Christensen, Virginia McNally, lone Winter, Marlene Schupbach, Joyce Gregg, and Clarine Olson. Carole Schultz has taken Clarine 's place in the sex­ tette.
