Sharps And Flats Excel In Music
The Sharps and Flats Music Club of DeVil-
biss High School this year celebrated its fourth
year of existence as a school club. During these
four years it has been one of the active clubs in
the school with this year no exception.
Since it is the purpose of the club to promote
interest and ability among its members and to
help support the local musical organizations, our
activities usually have been attending concerts and
playing ourselves. We attempt to keep a good bal-
ance between our social and educational programs.
For instance. during the month of December, we
attended the Toledo Choral Society's presentation
of Handel's 5'The Messiah", which was most cul-
tural and inspiring. We had a Christmas party
at the home of Charles Mater. where we sang
Christmas Carols in the neighborhood and enjoyed
an enthusiastic social gathering.
The officers of the club this year were Joe
Henry, Presidentg Joanne Michelsen, Vice-Presi-
dentg Barbara Edmonds, Secretary: Bud Smith,
Treasurerg and Peggy Lukens, Inter-Club Council
Representative. As the guiding body the officers
tried to keep the interest and financial status of
the club in good repair. Dave Perlmutter, Histor-
ian. was elected to keep the scrapbook of the ac-
tivities and members of the club.
The programs at our meetings were given by
the members. Before a boy or girl becomes a
'gSharp,' or l'Flat" he or she must show some form
of musical talent. This year the talent ranged
from playing the piano to playing the tru111pet.
The members have many outside musical in-
terests. Many belong to the Toledo Choral Socie-
ty and to "The Toledo Young Peoples Sym-
phony." Joe Henry. our president. is founder and
conductor of the latter.
The club won second place in the Christmas
decorations contest sponsored by the Inter-Club
Council. This project was in charge of Betty Jane
Our advisers. Miss Elaine Hirth and Mr. Rus-
sell Brown. guided us through another successful
Former members of the Sharps and Flats
have gone into the field of music as a profession.
Those who have proceeded into the world
to pursue other occupations have gone with an
enrichment gained through the contact with good
music which the club afforded.

A Capella Choir Achieves Success
One full hourfthat was the joy of the A Ca-
pella Choir. This was the first year that the choir
really had a chalice to practice without interrup-
tions. ln the past most of us ate lunch during our
rehearsal time. Naturally the results were a bit
confusing, but now everything has been changed.
Over the roar of the machines in the workshops
which surround our room. llf-l3. no other sound
could be heard within a radius of several blocks.
The true tones of the A Capella Choir were not
audible even to the members themselves.
Our group consisted of thirteen sopranos.
nine altos. four baritones, five tenors, and nine
basses. During the year. most of us were given a
chance to sing solo parts with the choir.
The social event of the year was a Christmas
caroling party at the home of Nancy Stalker. Be-
cause of the cold weather. the hot chile which she
served was even more delicious. At the close of
our party we presented Mr. Zaugg with a white
shirt, flashy necktie, and socks to match.
We sang Christmas Carols i11 the program in
our DeVilbiss library at Christmastime. This pro-
gram is one event which builds up the holiday
spirit at DeVilbiss and we certainly enjoy partici-
pating in it.
The Kiwanis Club enjoyed the selections we
sang for them at a noon luncheon at LaSalle's. We
sang in the City Choral Parade at the Toledo
Museum of Art in December and then we sang for
two Lenten Services at Trinity Church. The an-
nual Choral Festival in which all the choruses of
the city participate was held in the Peristyle of the
Art Museum in May.
Ki Punches was our pianist this year and he
added the finishing touches. .loc Henry filled in
as conductor when Mr. Zaugg was busy.
But our champion, the light of our lives,
was J. Philip Zaugg. No one can surpass his sense
of humor, patience, or that twinkle in his eye
when we were on pitch. The seniors will always
remember the pleased expressions of serenity when
they had sung well or the motions of his hands that
coaxed from thcm faint diminishes and lusty cre-

Sorelles Are Symbolic Of The
If you had been walking down some quiet
street in the DeVilbiss High School district on a
Tuesday evening you might have smiled at the
similarity of its lovely homes. Most of tl1e houses
along the street had tl1e usual number of lights
burning, and father could be seen reading the
newspaper in his favorite chair while mother in-
dustriously knitted and brother or sister sat at the
desk doing homework. Suddenly you came upon a
house with quite a different aspect. This one was
ablaze with lights. Screams and war-whoops burst
through the once quiet and solemn streets. You
rushed to a window of the house to see if there
were anything you could do, for surely there must
be a mass execution or a meeting of men from
Mars. But as you gazed upon this room of utter
confusion you sighed with relief. lt was only a
meeting of the Senior Sorelles.
The president, Ruth Crockett, and vice-pres-
ident. .lean Parkes, helplessly sat on top of the
piano trying in vain to hear Lorene Barnes who
was shouting the minutes of the last meeting from
across the room. But wait. There was a lovely
lass trying to beat her brains out against the wall
and muttering something about being '6five-in-the-
hole." Of course, that was Jackie Schouten, the
Sorrelle treasurer. Susie Lattin the sergeant-ab
arms tried to quiet a group of girls who were still
talking about the fun they had on the Sorelle hay-
ride last December. It looked as if Susie was talk-
ing more than the rest of them. That girl in the
corner was Nancy Hill, the chaplain, praying to be
forgiven for ever joining the group.
Someone made a suggestion that the group
have a rummage sale and at the same time a
plan for a box supper for the parents was approv-
ed. Business now began to win over the clamor
and the president quickly took advantage of it in
order to put forth the question of the location for
a cottage next summer. Immediately everyone
returned to her conversation and soon someone re-
marked that the meetings closely resembled the
demonstration which had been given to show how
not to conduct a meeting.
All of a sudden quietness prevailed. It was
the lull before the storm. The advisers, Mrs. Per-
kins and Miss Griffin, had announced that the re-
freshments were ready and then deftly dodged out
of the way of the stampeding herd.
So went the meeting of the Senior Sorelles.
