Eight members represented Washington High School in the North-Eastern Conference Chorus, directed by the eminent Welsh composer. Daniel Protheroe, at Waterloo last fall. The Spring Concert was given at Franklin School on March twenty-first, the two glee clubs being augmented by members from the voice classes. The organization participated in the May Festival presented by all of the Cedar Rapids Public Schools.

TTAVING for their ideal, St. Cecilia, patron saint of music; their flower, the white rose; their colors, green and white, and their motto, “Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life,” Cecilians strive to promote the furtherance of musical education and to develop character and personality.
Cecilians have striven to put more than an Ordinary interpretation into their songs, and each girl has proved her loyalty by cooperation and good will in school events and in the presentation of the spring program.
The officers of the fall semester were: President, Lila Palmer; Vice-President, Ruth Kemp; Secretary, Margaret Sundberg; Treasurer. Esther Smith; Pulse Reporter, Marjorie Voigt. The spring semester officers are: President, Mary Alice Snow; Vice-President,
Frances Weslerfield; Secretary, Dorothy Lam-son; Treasurer, Merle Stephenson; Pulse Reporter, Marianne Dvorak; Program Chairman, Charlotte Klima.
Under the direction of Miss Ruth Rickards, the glee club has performed successfully many times for various civic organizations, and social assemblies, in addition to winning first place in the State Music Contest at Iowa City in May, 1929.
At the bi-weekly meetings of the club, interesting studies of famous operas and composers were made, along with selections rendered by members of the club.
Cecilians wish to express their sincere appreciation of the leadership of Miss Rickards, and for the kind and never-failing help which she has given them.
