A CAPPELLA CHORUS
The students of Creston High who were lovers of music and who appreciate fine art
innovated a new idea into the music world of the school. A club known as "The A Cap-
pella Chorus" was organized. The term "A Cappellai' means without instrumental ac-
companiment. This means that the singing was done unaccompanied.
The purpose of the club was to increase our interest and to strengthen our desire for
music of the higher quality and to develop the singing ability of the members.
The program that the club carried out under the expert director, Mr. Fiddick, was
rather unique for a high school. The club sang four-part harmony songs unaccompanied.
Every effect of the voice of each singer and of the combination of voices could be per-
fected and analyzed. Each member learned how to handle his voice more easily and
learned the art of making himself understood through the medium of song. In addition
to the A Cappella singing each member was required to sing a solo during the club periods.
Every member was willing and anxious to do his part in everything.
The personnel of the club was composed of students who has some previous experience
in music, especially in voice culture. The requirement for admission to membership in
the club was that the applicant for membership must sing a solo which, if judged by the
club to be excellent, admitted the prospective member into full-fledged membership.
The A Cappela Chorus proved to be one of the most interesting and beneficial clubs in

This year was the initial year for the Lost Musicians, but it has been very successful
in accomplishing its purpose.
The purpose of the club has been to cultivate an entirely different interest in music
among its members by trying to prove that music can be produced from anything. In
order to become a full-fledged member, each member was requested to make his own
instrument, no matter how crude it might be, and also be able to play a simple tune
Aside from this, it has had social functions, such as several parties. This club also
had the opportunity of putting on programs before service clubs, as well as a convocation
program before the student body. In these programs, the club members endeavored to
prove that music could be made from very common articles, such as a. clothes pin, nails
wooden boxes, mop sticks, etc.
Some of the various instruments made were mopstick violins, wooden xylophones,
alarm clock bell xylophones, nail chimes, glass funnel instruments, wooden box instru-
ments, one string violins, one string ukes, tin pan instruments, clothes pin instruments,
bamboo tubes, and banjos.
The club was sponsored by Mr. Feelhaver. The officers were Mardell Lombard, Presi-
dent, Alta Boys, Vice Presidentg and Kenneth Keeton, Secretary-Treasurer.

The Ner-Sio-Lit Club, composed of a group of senior girls. was organized at the bc-
ginning of the school year. The purpose and aim of the club is to promote and develop
appreciation for good worth-while literature. During the course of the year the girls in
this club have read and discussed short stories by noted writers and also sto1'ies written
by members of the club. These discussions proved very interesting as well as entertaining
and educational. Several reviews were also given on the latest books which every lover
of literature should read. These also were very beneficial and carried out the aim of the
club exceptionally well.
Besides studying short stories and books, a considerable amount of time and effort
was spent in designing and making artistic scrapbooks of various types.
The girls also carried on sandwich sales during the second semester. This was done
for the purpose of making money which was turned over to the Library Commission to be
used in buying new books for the school library.
Our club was under the capable supervision of Miss Ross who has done a great deal
to make our club a success, and who has given a great deal of time in helping the girls.
Miss Ross has also accompanied us on hikes, theater parties, and steak fries. We have
certainly appreciated her efforts and wish to thank her for her assistance.
The officers of the club which served throughout the year are as follows: President,
Erla Schoonover, Vice President, Bonnie Robertsg Secretary, Margaret McDonough.
