No one escapes " voice testing. " From Miss Frisian ' s studio come weird sounds and sweet ones occasionally. Soon the Choir and Fidelio lists are posted and rehearsals begin. Strains of " Land of Hope and Glory " are heard between 4:40 and 5: 25 on Mondays and Fridays when Choral meets, followed by the more " experienced " voices of Fidelio. This year Fidelio decided it wanted an elected rather than an appointed president, and Jean Craig was chosen. The next excitement came with the announcement that Abbot was going to give " The Mikado " with 1 A. in the spring. The leads were chosen; we sang over the Finale of the First Act, and went on to our Christmas music. If we do say so ourselves we sang well at Christmas time when the organ went off pitch just before the Christmas service and we had to sing a cappella. After vacation we settled down to " The Mikado " and got it under con- THE FIDELIO SOCIETY President: Jean Craig Accompanist: Elinor Cahill !i fc ' fciite [48]

Mr. Howe never could remem- ber Ellie Cahill ' s name on the first try : ' ' Lib — ah — Fran — ah — Elinor, ' ' and we never could find the place in the music, but we worked harder under pressure and got results. But April 16 was drawing danger- ously near, and we were measured for our Mikado costumes and wigs, had our joint rehearsals at Abbot and at P.A., dress rehearsal, and finally the two great nights of actual perform- ance. We were very proud of our leads: Alva Houston as Yum Yum, Anne Pearson as Pitti Sing, Betty Colson as Peep Bo, and Themis Sarris as Katisha. Then came the sad day when the Seniors retired from active member- ship in Fidelio and left their places for " New Fidelio. " We continued to practice once a week for the Com- mencement Concert and Rally Night, but how we envied those lucky under- classmen who had another year of Fidelio before them ! But Fidelio and Choral by no means constituted all of our musical activities. Sixteen members of Choir met regularly every Sunday morning and evening for rehearsals with Miss Friskin for our Vesper Service pro- grams. We had superior training and a wonderful time as well, although we nearly drove Miss Friskin to retire- ment because in spite of all her efforts we would not enunciate clearly!
