MUSIC HATH CHARM
The chorus is very large this year,
having sixty members under the compe-
tent direction of Mr. Walter Elliott.
The chorus has done no public sing-
ing this year except caroling at Christmas
time, but a quartet composed of four of the
chorus members has sung at many public
performances. These members are Bose-
mary lohnson, Betty lane Mott, Alexander
Moore and Bichard Clarke. A very good
recording was made of both the quartet
The chorus members meet three times
a week, and at these meetings they have
the Joyful satisfaction resulting from sing-
The latter part of the first six weeks of
the second semester, the chorus decided
to give a prepared program late in the
year. They purchased a concertized form
of the "Mikado" by Gilbert and Sullivan.
Much pleasure was derived from the study
of this work which culminated in a pleas-
How could school spirit lag at football
or basketball games when the rousing
band "booms out" with a spirited air!
The band played at every public parade,
and gave two very well attended con-
certs this season. Not only did they meet
these minimum requirements, but they
worked hard this year to make a good
showing at the district band contest in
Connersville. They placed first in their
division here, which entitled them to go to
Tell City State Contest in April, where they
placed first in third division. Also at Con-
nersville there were several solo winners
-lean Smith, Bill Carr, Betty Ann Mc-
Mahon, and one clarinet trio, Lorena
Wiles, Vonda Grimes, and Marilyn Caca.
These individuals attended a National
Contest at Flint, Michigan, May 14th.
The Band Boosters Association has
helped the School Board to realize the
band's ambition to have new uniforms.
The uniforms are black and gold military
style. They were initiated at the Nobles-
ville-Dunkirk basketball game, and pre-
sented a very striking appearance. Every-
one was justly proud of them. Gne of
the closing events of the year was their
appearance in full uniform at the head of
the school parade to the city park cele-
brating Boys and Girls' week on May lst.
The orchestra, under the leadership of
Mr. Elliott, has made rapid improvement.
Since there must be a limited number
playing each instrument, this is a selected
group. Unlike the band, they specialize
more in the finer points of orchestration
and instrumentation. Their choice of semi-
classical selections are enjoyed by all.
They have appeared publicly several
times: at class plays, P. T. A. meetings,
Baccalaureate, Commencement, and in
The orchestra gave a benefit concert
for the P. T. A. in February of this year.
They were also invited to play for the
Congress of Parents and Teachers at the
Claypool Hotel on April 26, but had to de-
cline this invitation because of a conflict
with the Noblesville Township Coni-
