McMain Celebrates Pan American Da Bylsharon Mattes, '46 WHEN the Mother's Club met in April, a. colorful tableau of the spirit existing between the United States and the other Latin American countries was presented to them. All of the participants were dress- ed in' extremely realistic costumes and the effect was one of much color and vivacity. To add more to the Spanish setting, the art classes paint- ed huge fans of brilliant colors which were placed at the rear of the stage as a background. 'Spanish lanterns, scarves, resplendent in their bright Forty-eight colors, and smaller fans, also painted by the art classes were present, cre- ating the atmosphere of a Spanish garden. Katherine Schleuter really gave the audience the feeling of Being transported to romantic old Mexico when, she sangv "Una Vez". The Spanish classes sang "Ay, Ay, Ay," and "Chiapaneca," folk songs of Chile and Mexico respectively. Norma De Latte and Mellow Lesky danced to "Chiapaneca". The "Mexican Hat Dance" was also a great success, Lucia Von Gohren and Valerie Gati- pon ably performing their parts. The final number with America represented by the Statue of Liberty in the background, and the Latin American countries grouped around her, each bearing- the flag of her country, gave the audience the sensa- tion of actually seeing how closely the nations are united. On the whole, the program was most entertaining' and colorful. All who were present enjoyed it, and if President, Roose- velt, the founder, had been present in our auditorium he too would have been pleased with our efforts.

- .a-:-if.-.ma ,1-, Z- , ti, FN' fllepaeimeniaf new D By Chrixthel Nungener-- 45 X 1 GN APRIL- 19, the members of home rooms 225 and 207 were the recipients of a delightful pie feast awarded them for their assist- ance in selling subscriptions and ads for the McMain "Echoes". , As the spring weather was exceptionally beautiful, the girls gathered on the campus at fourth period.'Misses Ran- dolph and Cresson were on hand'to assure an even distribution, and the apple, peach, and pineapple pies were indeed delicious.. Rubye Drumright, the business manager of the "Echoes", gave a short address and presented an award to Maxie Meek. who brought the greatest number of ads for the magazine. The staff of the "Echoes" was pleased with the sincere work these girls did and is looking forward to enjoying more of these parties. ' Home room 209, which won the prize for securing the largest num- ber of ads, made a patriotic gesture by donating its award to the Red Cross. Dolores Marsh, a student at Mc- Main, has decided to write an article for the "Reader's Digest" under the caption of "The Most Unforgettable Character I've Ever Met". The center of attraction. is Senorita Broussard, our teacher of the upper classes of Spanish. Dolores is spending her spare moments collecting bits of in- formation from students and teach- ers, as well as Seiiorita herself. It will take about a month to complete the-article and then it will be sent to the Digest. We all hope it will be published so that the world may know of the petite teacher who has done so much to strengthen the bonds of friendship between, the . two- conti- nents in the.Western Hemisphere. A, V An amusing incident- happened oneof Miss- B1-own's United' States- Histdryfclasses a few days ago. ' -The girls were 'asked to write the defini- tion of "suffrage". The majority of the answers proved to be boners. One definition was: suffrage-the short- age of money: Another stated that E-'Ci-H-OE-S f suffrage is the condition in which people are suffering. Finally the correct answer came along Cmuch to Miss Drown's reliefl. Suffrage is the right to vote. Once, again we are publishing a Senior issue of the "Echoes", It is fitting that we have a section de- voted to the class play. "'And Cam'e The Spring" is the play which has been selected as the class play for the graduates of June 1946. The cast is as follows: Mr. Jeffrey Hartman - Shirley Siegel Elliott Hartman-Mary Lou Soule Buzz Lindsay-Carol Shockey Keith Nolan-Peggy Robert Freddie North-Lucia von Gohren Mr. Fields-Betty Grethe Alan Fields-Rose Marie Letten Clancy-Bobbie Sue Blanchard Messenger Boy--Geraldine Owens Mrs. Louise Hartmna-Bitsy Pow- 'ell Midge Hartman-Janet Rieke Virginia Hartman-June Ducour- nau , Carollyn Webster-Juanda Corbin Gabby Allen-Beverly Guess Edna-Audrey Armbruster Mrs. Fields-Patricia Seghers Christine Meyers-Gloria Seymour The following has been said about the play and I quote it to give you an idea about the play: "There are plays and plays about modern American families. But only occasionally do two authors approach the subject with the freshness, in- sight, and humor which characterizes "And Caine The Spring", the new comedy by Marrijane and Joseph Hayes. f ' ' ' "Today, when comedy is especially needed in the world, these two au- thors' have 'supplied it lavishly, all' while preserving the naturalness and heightening thecolor of their inter- esting characters. It has often been said' that all good comedy springs from character. Although "And Came The--Spring" is full of unex- lf - "vinci '-, -Il' -r M .L pected and highly diverting situa- tions, the emphasis on truth and char- acter is foremost. "Life is made up of poignancy as well as laughter-and what is more filled with both these qualities than first love? What has more universal HPDQI? Here is a moving as well as an -'amusing picture of a first love which begins an avalanche of com- plications calculated to win the' ap- proval of even the saddest member of any audience. "Written with sensitivity, "And Came The Spring" skims along blithely as it relates the amusing story of the 'Hartmans when the youngest girl in the family finds her- self enormously successful ffor a whilel in her manipulation of other lines for her own ends. The story builds to deft and hilarious climaxes all the while keeping its eye on the human traits and emotions motivat- ing the characters." K At the beginning of last term twenty-five lucky girls were selected to be Senior B representatives and to carry on as representatives when they became Senior A's. They have been kept very busy throughout their senior year, collecting ring, picture, luncheon, and gift money. The of- ficers of they class are, Mary Lou Soule, presidentg Sara Jones, vice- presidentg Jane Clay, secretaryg Jo- anne Thornbury, treasurerg Mary Anne Thompson and Georgia Fischer, assistant treasurers. Since February they had met as a club group until April, when they were disbanded. One of the things they accomplished was deciding about flowers for grad- uation. Roses were decided upon, with pink and light green as class colors. Then they saw to' Senior A balloting, collecting various 'senior material for the "Echoes", and get- ting senior pictures ready for publi- cation in our magazine. Since the representatives have been disbanded, a small group of nine girls meet together at club pe- riod.- These girls have counted and drawnup the Senior ballots, discuss- ed the class poernfand song, and geni erally carried -on the' work 'of the Senior class, under the guidance bf Miss Carolyn'Steir, ourfaculty ad- visor., These girls, together with the whole Senior class, are looking for- ward to' graduation, the culmination of their high school life. il F Forijl-.veven

,W ,Fu ,,,. E pf l I' PPM 2719912 ?' .. NJ... 0--fi Gym Night MCMAIN'S ninth Gym Night has come and gone and the only re- gret is felt by those who did not vol- unteer to take part. The auditorium was filled to overflow-ing and our hearts thrilled with satisfaction as we realized that each shining face represented not only an enthusiastic spectator but twenty-five cents- as well to swell the gym fund. This was 'our most successful gym night both as to perforniance and finances. Mr. Haas, President of our school board enjoyed each minute of the program from a -first row seat. It is the first time that we have been so honored by the acceptance of our invitation. ' The program moved smoothly along from the first number to the last. Dorothy Brisbi, an outstanding Ivory, welcomed the amidience and asked that they join us in saluting the flag and singing the national anthem. The first number was a club swinging E-C-H-0-E-S routine which demonstrated the pro- ficiency of the Seniors in handling those' tricky wooden gadgets. This number was followed by two tap dances by the Juniors, who acquitted themselves nobly. The' Danish gym- nastics demonstrated conclusively that free hand exercises are very beneficial for physical fitness. Now that the mothers havie seen thelir daughters in action we are very much afraid they'll have to help at home with the heavy work. , The Sewanee River tap dance was an outstanding example of women's ingenuity. One of the performers, having forgotten her mask, promptly covered her smiling countenance with a black hair net much to the amuse- ment of every one concerned. Trip- ping the light fantastic sometimes gets to be more truth than poetry and it is an accomplishment to be able to do a routine properly With- out making a mistake. We are duly grateful that gym students have but two feet to manage. It oftimes takes a. whole trimester to distinguish the left from the riht. L 11 sf- ryegra- i,. i -.-i.f,.i , ,igav H ,K.: The sixth number on the program consisted of tumbling, diving and pyramid building. Nearly two hun- dred girls took part in this demon- stration. With the exception of one or two girls who had previous work in tumbling the remainder were all taught at school and it is a distinct tribute to their ability that they were able to accomplish the beautifully co- ordinated' stunts and individual ex- hibitions. Next came the diving over bodies which always thrills both au- dience and performers. As a climax to this part of the program Jackie Karst was to pretend to dive over nine girls. Just as she started her run toward the girls crouched on the floor someone blocked Shirley Sieg- el's mother's view and when she again saw the stunt Jackie, after having straddled the bodies was com- pleting a forward roll. Mrs. Siegel is most distressed because her daugh- ter Shirley can dive over but one body. Shirley is having, a hard time trying to 'convince her mother that she saw the "positive" and "nega- tive" parts of the stunt and com- pletely missed the "in between". The completion of this sixth number was ably handled by the students who performed five pyramids with the smoothness and precision of profes- sionals. The last pyramid was a tumble down one in which all the performers did a good job of fall- ing flat to the mats. The girls them- selves were worried for- fear the audience might think it was an ac- cident. Their fears of course were groundless as the precision of the performance demonstrated the per- fect coordination of this difficult stunt. A A The Sidewalks of New' York, a waltz clog in costume, strengthened the audience's appreciation of the light fantastic in general and Thelma C'unningham's ability in particular. When Thelma becomes famous and wealthy we just know she'll endow her Alma Mater with a gym. Two prizes were awarded in this number for the best costumes. They were given to Thelma Cunningham and Dorothy Miramon. The seniors put on an old- fashion- ed square dance, She'l1 Be Coming in costume enjoyed by Round the Mountain, which was thoroughly performers and audience alike.
