The Mixed Chrous, composed of over one hundred voices and under
the competent direction of Mrs. Dorothy Rankin, can look back on the school
year l938-39 and remember it as one of the fullest and most enjoyable from
the standpoint of qood music. The annual Christmas Carolinq in the corri-
dors and Christmas Cantata, "When the Christ Child Came" by Clokey were
events of unusual interest to the students.
The noteworthy achievement of the year was, however, the highly suc-
cessful operetta, "Hollywood Extra" by Charles Wakefield Cadman with
Mr. Ivan Reese as stage director and Mrs. Rankin director of music. The
story behind this production was the struqqles ot a small town qirl who wins
a movie contest and tries to win recognition in Hollywood. The principles
were lack Leqq, Doris Okerson, Katherine Blodis, Andrew Combs, Shirley
Thomson, Paul Blaine, Anne Collins, Georqe Rogers, lohn Wooley, and Rob-
Manasquan High School was represented in the All-State Chorus by
Shirley Thomson, Mildred Prevost, Anne Collins, and Andrew Combs. This
chorus sanq at the annual Teachers' Convention held in Atlantic City.
Other appearances of the Mixed Chorus were at the Baccalaureate Ser-
vice and Commencement Exercises, brinqinq to a close a memorable year.

The 'Boys' Glee Club has had a year of many and varied activities. Their
first participation was joining with the Girls' Glee Club in presenting the Can-
tata and thet Christmas Caroling. The Cantata given this year was "Christ lsl
Born." On February 24th-25th, the Boys of the Glee Club helped to present an
operetta, "Hollywood Extra." This production proved to be one of the most
successful affairs to be presented in the history of the school.
Some of the, selections rendered this year are "The Blind Ploughmann by
Clarke: "The King of France" by Wakeman and Wilson: "Tramp, Tramp,
Tramp" by Herbert and Baldwin, "Bedouin Love Song" by Pensuiti, "How
Can I Leave Thee" by Kuckenp "Stars of the Summer Night" by Woodbury,
and "Eight Bells" by Winslow.
Last year, our number of boys decreased due to the graduation, and we
lost many good voices. This year there has been a good response from some
of the freshman boys and the upper classmen, as Well, which has helped to
fill these vacancies.
The Boys' Glee Club offered their last splendid renditions in a concert
on May 4th, the Baccalaureate Service, and the Commencement Exercises.
