THE JUNIOR MUSIC CLASS
This class is made up principally of Fresh-
men although it is open to any student who
wishes to prepare for senior glee club or secure
a knowledge of the fundamentals of music.
There are twenty-two students enrolled in
this class this year, many of whom have had
little or no previous instructions in music of
any kind. In this class, the pupils study sight
reading, scale and chord formations, music his-
tory, and music appreciation. They meet three
periods each week and receive the same credit
as is given for senior glee club work.
STUDENT BODY PLAYS
This year for the first time, three One-Act
Plays were presented by the student body, in
place of the usual three-act play. The plays
were coached by Miss Billie Hilliard.

public. It is a good change as it gives more
students a part in this activity.

three peppy yell leaders, Marjorie Farris, Ele-
