L0 ' C- Flgldjdhrl Rou- R ner' BAND TOOTS OWN HORN IS MOST HEARD GROUP Probably the most-heard, most-seen organization in school is the band, for it not only sponsors pro- grams of its own, but appears at all athletic contests, plays, pep meetings, and most assembly programs. Mr. J. Edward Coe, director, meets with the band for practice sessions every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during the noon hour, and also after school on Thursday. On November 22, the music department came forth with its first concert of the year. The program consisted of instrumental solos by members of the band and vocal solos by Mass Chorus members. Charles Aschenbrenner, student director, directed the band through two marches, and the band and chorus combined on several numbers. To show their Christmas spirit the band, along with the Mass Chorus, presented a Christmas pro- gram and Cantata on the evening of December 21, just before Christmas vacation, Entertainment dur- ing the evening included a cantata, "Glad Tidings of Great Joy," by Richard Kountz, which was given by the junior and senior girls and Boys' Chorus. Christmas carols were sung by Mass Chorus accom- panied by the band. In the latter part of February the "music lovers" showed their ability in another most welcome con- cert. This consisted largely of popular songs, which were played by the band. At the close of the program the band played the well-known "Wanderer" over- ture by K. L. King, and then the entire assemblage sang the Star Spangled Banner. To climax the 1949-50 season, the band and music department presented their annual Music Festival the last week in May. To raise funds for music and new instruments, the band raffled at Christmas time five boxes of choc- olates. In recognition of the seniors' work and time in the band, Mr. Coe treated them, along with the rest of the band, to a picnic and a show in the evening. The following is a list of seniors in the band, the instuments they play, and the number of years each has spent in the band: Patricia O'Rourke, trombone, four years, Ila Mae Rogers, saxophone, three years, Irma Kerchner, Eb Alto saxophone, four years, Gilbert Goy, trumpet, two years, George Malach, trumpet, three years, Charles Morrissey, trumpet, one and one-half years, Charles Aschenbrenner, snare drum, four years, Jane Long, bass drum, three and one-half years. A fourth of a credit is given toward graduation to each member of the band for each year of successful participation, f' 1 First B. ,R.,,,., B J. fj::g'0g.gl.FZi'5'Zhi1e, M J .

Mort, ' . 1 urke, F.5ixeI5L,CE1jZ- aff, Jr. Stenos FACULTY SECRETARIES MEET TO EAT Fifty years ago this group would not have been possible in our schools. Technical advancement in secretarial work and the acceptance of women in private employment has made subjects in the com- mercial field among the most popular electives for girls. Junior Stenos, then, reflects the progress our schools have made in meeting the needs of their students. The Jr. Stenos, this year numbering fifteen, were the advanced typing and shorthand students. In September, the group elected Rita Morrissey as their president and chose Florine McCaffrey as vice- president, Betty Reinhold as secretary, and Marlene Jones as treasurer. These officers served for the en- tire year. On the first Monday of each month, a meeting was held in Room 1, Plans for future activities were fre- quently discussed, and different committees of two served each month. These committees, appointed by the president, were in charge of program, bulletin board, and refreshments. The girls on the program committee generally gave talks on different types of office work. The bulletin board was decorated each month, the decorations being based on a definite theme. The Jr. Stenos soon became known for the delicious refreshments they served, and faculty mem- bers were frequently invited to enjoy the food with them. On the fourteenth of February, the first year commerce students were guests of the Jr. Stenos at a Valentine's Day luncheon. In December and early in the spring, the group held bake sales, which were successful in helping to increase their treasury. Also. during the spring, the girls spent a very enjoyable week-end in Chicago. Miss Betty Brigham, advisor of the Jr. Stenos, and Miss Catherine Douvier accompanied the group for this trip. aaa T P Row E Lntts, 0 5fePhem'ch' G Gay' C 0 R Grams MorrnsseY, L Ullensvangv J Gfam , f 4th Row F McCa 1 C Aschenbrermel' G 1 D frx? tllri Nnchols, M Lupton, B Sagrnxth A d 5 shmvm, G Hacker, D n 'ea 1 h E Stewart D Smxth R Garlggil alfnd Bldgxelljk Morrxssfh Leffelmas, 3 Jones P Qvgourke MM Law eg, L K ut ' L orrnsse v n ' M Scherer bbms, d K FlahertY, G Carroll A Go! on, affreY, Mrs Exdth Olmsteada dxrectof, B MCC Jrd Row D HalseYa .l Long, G Ma ac E Wlllsfead D Morns K Reuter, W Langley' R Pnl, DR MA CLUB DRAMATISTS USE NEW MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS Thxs year the Drama Club members were h c osen upon the basxs of thezr actmg abnlxty The Thespnans and thenr sponsor, Endth Olm stead, served as decxdmg judges After they had been chosen, members were a d ppomte to defmnte commxttees Some of these commnttees were Publncnty, Makeup Tickets, Stage and Props and Costumes These c om mxttees take thenr respectnve parts at both the Jumor and S l emor p ays and also the Thespnan play whnch wnll be held nn the Sprmg The fnrst bxg event was the Hallowe en Carn nval, held on October 31 Thus gala affaxr fea tured the House of Terrors Freak Show, Dan cxng Dolls Faculty Graveyard and va nous other snde shows The Jr Stenos featured the H h as House decorated to carry out xdeas of the carnnval Thus affalr was a cooperatnve effort of the Drama Club and the Ambo Y Lnons Club, as the latter sponsored a parade and danc h e on t e same evenmg Shortly after the Hallowe en Carnxval, the Drama Club had a wemer roast and hayrxde December 16 was the Drama Club Chrnst mas Party The evenmg was opened by vns ntm the h f g omes o several faculty members and a number of crxppled and aged shut ms on a carol smgmg tour The carolers then returned to the high school and had a forty fxve mm t u e program presented by the sophomore, junnor, and semor classes Refreshments were served by the Thesplans I H ., .
