IHLL QD if-9908 anion Girls, Chorus The Northwest Girls' Chorus consisting ot one hundred and nine members had a busy schedule for the year. Early in November, under the direc- tion ot Mrs. Phyllis C. Michael, they began inten- sive rehearsals tor the Christmas program which was put on as a combined concert featuring both chorus and band. One number that was especially enjoyed was "White Christmas," which was sung in four-part harmony by the newly organized Northwest Octet. Soon after the beginning of the second semes- ter, rehearsals began tor the Easter concert, which was also a combined concert of chorus and band including twirlers. This concert featured, as did the Christmas concert, various types of music, ranging from popular to sacred. The final appearance of the chorus was -at the Baccalaureate services held June TO in the audito- rium. Two selections were sung, "One God" and "I See God." Solo parts were sung by Cathie Moore and Eileen Honse. Accompanists for this service, as well as for the Easter concert, were Rebecca Franklin at the piano and Isabel Culver at the console of the organ.

The Northwest Octet, which featured special four-part arrangements, was organized in November and gave its first performance at the Christmas concert along with the chorus and the band. The numbers presented by the girls were especially enjoyed both at this program and at the Easter program as well as at the special programs they presented including one at the Mother-Daughter Banquet at the Shickshinny Presbyterian Church on May 3 and another which they pre- sented at the P.T.A. meeting held in the Northwest auditorium May 19.

Marching practice to learn new drills and formations took up much of the band students' time in August. September arrived, and the band members put into practice on the football field what they had learned during the preceding month. The band also took part in the annual parade at the Bloomsburg Fair. ln October the band participated in the Shickshinny and Ben- ton Halloween parades. In the latter parade, our band tied for top honors. With the arrival of cold weather, the band moved indoors and practiced daily to provide music for special occasions. The first of these was the senior play which was presented in Novem- ber. Following this, the band went into rehearsal, under the student direction of David Albertson, for the Christmas concert. In January Mr. Gregory became the faculty sponsor. Again, the band pro- duced the music for the junior play which was presented in March. Following closely or. the heels of the junior play came the spring concert given at Easter time. Here the band and the chorus ioined forces to present a program of popular, semiclassic, and religious music. ln May six band members-David Albertson, Thomas Pugh, David Kiethline, Joseph Link, Betsy Jones, and Isabel Culver-took part in the West- side Band Concert which was a great success. All of our seniors were placed in first chairs, an achievement which gives credit to their musi- cal ability. With the coming of warm weather, the band began its twofold job of preparing marching and concert music. On May 29 the band participated in the Union Memorial Service in Shickshinny. The following day brought the annual Memorial Day parade in which were displayed the talents of the twirlers as well as those of the musicians. The band rounded out a full year by playing the pro- cessional and recessional music at the Commence- ment exercises on June 14. ball game.

Dance Band The music program in our school would not be complete if it did not present an opportunity to the student who is interested in modern dance music to play that type of music. Such an oppor- tunity was given to the members of our Dance Band. Throughout the year, they played at func- tions both in and out of our area. Two of the more memorable occasions on which they pro- COLOR GUARD-Linda Cragle, Rebecca Cragle, vided music were at the Freshman Hop held in the gymnasium and at a banquet in the Sterling Hotel, Wilkes-Barre. The students had another chance to hear the group since they presented a school assembly program in the early part of the year. As usual the Dance Band ended its year's activities by playing at the Class Night presenta- tion.

Early in the year, assisted by their advisor, they made the necessary decisions such as color and design of the cover, general theme, and layout of pages. At subsequent meetings, they worked either as a group or as in- dividuals on whatever part of the book had to be completed at that time. Although the task required much labor, the members of the staff feel they will be amply rewarded for their efforts if they have succeeded in producing a yearbook which will be enjoyed now and treasured later. Madeline Glodek, Mariorie McMichael, and Darla Weston, assisted by several other members of the staff, typed hundreds of rough drafts and final copy sheets. The co-editors, Judy Featherman and Caroline Kinsey, take time to look up from their work of making a page layout to have their picture taken. Shirley Swithers and Barbara Orr are proofreading some copy sheets which have iust been typed. They will check carefully so that nothing will be misspelled or misplaced. It is the first Friday of the month-the day to collect yearbook payments. Back to room 129 come Charlotte DeWald, Joyce Eckert, and Dorothy Vogt to check the money collected against the columns of figures representing the student payments. 5? An important job in compiling a yearbook, that of identifying pictures and people in pictures, is being done by Nancy Fullerton, Kay Reider, and Lois Reider. As sports editor, Albert Seigfried was kept busy identifying pictures of athletes and writing captions for pictures and summaries of the seasons for the five major sports and all the intramurals.

Future Homemakers of America A popular club with home economics students is the Future Homemakers of America. The fol- lowing is a summary of the most important ac- tivities in which the members participated. In January, the club sent several delegates to the state meeting of the F.H.A. organization at which .Ethel Goss received the State Homemaker degree for outstanding work in the organization. 'During the winter months several girls worked for and earned the Junior and Chapter Homemaker de- grees. In May the girls entertained their mothers at a mother-daughter buffet supper. ln June, Bar- bara Baluta represented the club at the state con- vention at Pennsylvania State University where she was elected to the state office of vice presi- dent of public relations. To defray the expenses of the year's activities, the girls engaged in many money-making proi- ects. These F.H.A, girls are preparing a gay centerpiece for the Christmas party.

The success of the program, which was established to promote thrift among students as well as adults, is measured by the great increase in savings accounts year after year.

The first group consisted of the semiclassic type songs, "If I Could Tell You," "Tea for Two," and "Easter Parade." "Harbor Lights," in special four-part ar- rangement, was featured by the Northwest Octet. The band introduced the sacred portion of the program by playing "l Believe." Isabel Culver then took her place at the console of the electronic organ and played the accompaniment for Cathie Moore's solo, "Calvary." She also played "The Old Rugged Cross" as soft background music while Judy Featherman read the poem "Two Pieces of Wood."

The twenty-one seniors with the highest scholastic averages had speaking parts, but the entire class participated in the pro- gram which was directed by Miss Mathilde Lask. The beautiful stage setting was the work of Mrs. Mary Whitney and the art department. The singing was directed by Mrs. Phyllis C.

Ramp opened the exercises with the invocation. He was followed by the guest speaker, Attorney David R. Perry, who de- livered an enlightening address. Mr. Claude E.

Caroline Kinsey comes forward to take the square white envelope containing her diploma. Ethel George poses, hat in hand, and smiles as she clasps her diploma. Dorothy Vogt is much too happy for tears. Atter all, Commencement is really just a be- ginning. The future beckons. There are other goals to be attained. After the benediction has been pronounced, the band plays the recessional, "March of the Priests," and the ceremony draws to a close. Slowly the graduates begin to leave the stage and walk up the aisles with mixed emotions. Some are sad, some are glad-all are relieved. As they emerge from the auditorium doors, Ethel Goss and Bessie McDaniels shed tears of sadness.
