BOYS' GLEE CLUB
Music has played an important part in
the school during the many years past
and this year was no exception. The Boys'
Glee club furnished their share of the
music in 1932 and 1933. This organiza-
tion while it has been advanced through
the years has watched North Platte High
School grow from infancy.
There were twenty boys in the glee
club this year. Miss Leona Williams was
the directress, and their accompanist was
Since there was no operetta this year
the boys spent the entire time working
on selections which they sang at -con-
certs, and on special numbers given as a
part of the O. K. Vodvil.
The Boys' Glee club appeared at the
two vesper services which were held. They
sang' at several assemblies, and they
broadcasted over the radio. A black-
face minstrel show was their feature of
the O. K. Vodvil, a vaudeville show which
was presented by the G. A. A. and the
Boys' and Girls' Glee clubs in order to
earn money to defray the expenses of the
year. LaVern Weeks directed the min-
strels and his clever handling of the
theme won the stunt hearty applause
from the enthusiastic audience.
A quartette, composed of Paschal Stone,
iirst tenorg Albert Lane, tenorg Donald
Ford, baritoneg and Russell Glines, bassg
was formed this year. This group proved
to be popular with city audiences as well
as with the students. They assisted in a
number of programs and several times
presented selections over the ardio.
A mixed quintette won a chance in the
local music contest to represent North
Platte in the district event. They attended
the contest at Kearney and were judged
good enough to be sent as contestants to
the state music contest from the district.
The members of the quintette were:
Jeanne Fetter, sopranog Phyllis Selby,
sopranog Eleanor Distel, alto: Paschal
Stone, tenorg and Russell Glines, bass.
The Mixed Chorus was sent to the music
contest instead of the Boys' Glee club,
but the boys did not Waste time because
they had no important goal before them.
They worked the more industriously on
their concert selections. The sincere ap-
'preciation of their audiences was their

The North Platte High School orchestra
has completed its third year under the
direction of Mr. R. Cedric Anderson. The
orchestra was established in 1920, one
year after the band was organized.
Mr. Anderson has been endeavoring to
build up the instrumentation of the or-
chestra. There was a lack of advanced
players on the stringed instruments so he
imported a number of students from jun-
ior high who were sudiciently skilled to
become a part of the high school musical
organization. The boys and girls Who
came up for an eight o'clock class one
morning of the week were: Edward Votau,
Bonnie Jean Tramp, Marjorie Trenholm,
Lorine Pinkerton, Virginia McNeel, Doro-
thy Calhoun, Betty Selby, Mary Jane
Allen, Betty Anne
and Barbara Birge.
During the year the orchestra assisted
the major dramatic productions, playing
before the performances and between
acts. They were a part of the O. K. Vod-
vil, and they appeared at the two Sunday
vesper services. They presented their
contest numbers at the concert May 2,
given in order to secure enough money
to send the various musical organizations
to the state contest.
The orchestra enlarged by the addi-
tional junior high members attended the
Butler, Betty Grady,
state music contest at Kearney.

SENIOR GIRLS, GLEE CLUB
The Senior Girls' Glee club has proved
itself one of the most active organizations
in the school during the past year. As
well as participating in various assemblies,
they have taken part in vespers, given by
the Music Department, and a novel act
in the Orpheum show given by the G. A.
A. and the Music Department.
During' the first semester the girls
worked mostly for enjoyment and on num-
bers they particularly liked. The second
semester was devoted almost entirely to
contest work. The whole Music Depart-
ment took a standard music test at the
end of the first semester to find the things
in which they needed special work. Dur-
ing the second semester the girls tried to
correct these things and to get a more
thorough understanding of the funda-
mentals and theory of music.
Since the usual operetta was dispensed
with, vespers and other performances were
put on in order to make the required
amount of money to send the group to
The Girls' Glee club was a well sup-
ported organization this year. The first
semester's enrollment was forty-five, the
second semester's forty-three.

The club decided that to carry on its
affairs a little more efficiently, officers
should be elected. Darlene Walrath acted
as president, appointing committees and
taking charge of necessary meetings.
Delores Schwerin acted as secretary-
Ruth Joder very efficiently filled the
position as accompanist for the club.
A sextette was organized this year to
take part in affairs in which the entire
club could not appear, and in case it, at
some time, was not prepared. The person-
nel of the sextette changed from time
to time. It included the following people
at some time during the year: Bernice
Helms, Darlene Walrath, Delores Schwerin,
Louise Hollman, Evelyn Smith, Beryl
Forward, Lola Stevens, and Marian Tyler.
The sextette sang for assemblies, vespers,
programs, P. T. A. meetings, and other
Miss Leona Williams was director of
the vocal department. Although this was
her first year she had become very popular
and had proved herself very capable in
her work. She made glee club enjoyable
as well as educational.
