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
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
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.

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
The seniors put on an old- fashion-
ed square dance, She'l1 Be Coming
Round the Mountain,
which was thoroughly
performers and audience alike.

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
colors, and smaller fans, also painted
by the art classes were present, cre-
ating the atmosphere of a Spanish
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.
