MUSIC DEPARTMENT For many years the music departments in Benton Harbor High School have been a thing of widespread interest among the students and especially among the members of the community. The bands are of paramount interest in the marching and football seasons, while the glee clubs hold the spotlight through the fall and winter months. The fact that "Music hath charms," is amply proven by the music departments in Benton Harbor High School. Many successful operettas and music festivals have been given under the efficient musif cal direction of Mrs. Grosse. Also she teaches harmony and turns out students who can write their own music. Our stern Prussian maestro, Mr. Schlabach, preside over our large boys' band. Also he directs our high school orchestra. The high school girls' band bursts forth into many musical notes under the direction of Mr. Suppiger. Pinnegar, Feather, Ellett.

This year they entertained the Women's Club of Watervaliet, at Watervaliet, the Mason's t the Masonic Temple, and the Lion's Club at the Hotel Vincent. During the season before the operetta, choir rehearsals are temporarily discontinued un' ,l spring, when many engagements for them are anticipated. In past years the choir has carried on much the same type of activity. The organiza' ion has successfully existed in school for years and we know its success will continue.

GIRLS' GLEE CLUB This year the members of the Girls' Glee Club met in the music room during the sixth period on Tuesday and Thursday under the capable direction of Mrs. Reba Grosse. Last fall we Worked very hard on the Fall Music Festival. The combined glee clubs sang parts from Wagner's operas. Betty Leiby sang the solo from "Senta's Ballad" from "The Flying Dutchman." We also sang "d'Villanelle," by Del1'Acqua. On December 23 we sang Christmas carols in assembly. The operetta, "Tune In," given March 16 and 17 was a snappy, swingy, fast-moving musical comedy which turned out to be a huge success. The leads were taken by Betty Leiby, Dick VanHoevan, Nancy Filstrup, Bill Ellet, Janeth Dixon and Rol- land Phillips. GFFICERS President ..... ......................
