The mixed chorus was the first organ-
ization of its kind to exist in North Platte
High School. It is made up of members
selected from the Boys' Glee club and the
Senior Girls' Glee club. They were chosen
by Miss Williams, directress, according to
their ability and willingness to work, their
interest, and their cooperation.
This year the mixed chorus studied
thoroughly a number of selections by
noted composers. From these they selected
a number to be sung at the various pro-
grams in which they participated.
The chorus appeared publicly several
times during the year. On Sunday Decem-
ber 15, and Sunday March 5, they ap-
peared with the band and other music
groups at vesper services. On both occa-
sions they were enthusiastically received
by the audiences who enjoyed hearing the
accomplishments of this group. On May 2
they again appeared in a concert given
by the musical organizations to raise
money to attend the state music contest
at Kearney, Nebraska.
The mixed chorus entered the state
"7'illll', slriff as It g
contest this year in place of the Boys'
Glee club. They sang two difficult num-
bers. They were: "Open Our Eyes" and
"Now Is the Month of Mayingf'

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.
