ALQONA. IOWA Burt, Mar. 20—The annual sub- district music contest will be held at the school auditorium hero next week Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. This will be one of seven such contests in the North Central district, and contestants receiving a ranking in Division I will advance to a district contest at Eagle Grove April 13-15. Twenty-three schools will enter approximately 900 contestants in 43 events in the sub-district contest. There will be eight sessions, two Thursday, three Friday, and three Saturday. Competition will start Thursday afternoon at one o'clock. The first four sessions will be devoted to vocal music; the last four to instrumental music. Twenty-three Schools Entered. The following schools have entered contestants: Class A — Algona; Class B—Britt, Emmetsburg, Buffalo Center; Class C — Armstrong, Bode, Burt, Corwith, Fenton, Graettinger, Lakota, Ledyard, Lu Verne, Mallard, Ottosen, Ringsted, Ayrshire, Swea City, Thompson, Titonka, Wesley, West Bend and Dolliver.
