?3YC. I. IQ ‘Dramatic and zJkfusic Qontest
WHEN you look at this page now, its contents may be so familiar to you that you will wonder “why”? But ten or twenty years hence, you may think of the music department, and if so, you will remember these organizations, some of whose pictures appear on other pages of this book: the college
orchestra with its periodic concerts of really good orchestral music; the college band, which officiates as “pep-instiller” at the games; the college chorus, with its operas, such as “The Gondoliers,” “The Pirates of Penzance,” etc., its sacred works, such as “The Seven Last Words of Christ,” “The Creation,” etc.; the men’s glee club, The Peru Singers; the girls’ glee club; and the newest singing organization, The Orpheus Club.
We hope your remembrance of these groups will be pleasant, and that this page in your book will be worth-while.
But we are sure you want to remember the M. I. N. K. Dramatic and Music contest, in which some five hundred high school people participated, coming in 1929 through snowdrifts almost impassable, and lest you forget, Auburn again won the Class A trophy, while Sterling won possession of Class B trophy from Elmwood, the 1928 winner.
Have we refreshed your memory?

SUPERIOR team play gave the state district class “C” cup to the boys from Unadilla, who shoved Bennett into the runner-up position. Otoe, Talmage, and Verdon had already fallen by the wayside.

The offensive strength was vested in Greene of Dawson, and Faller of Falls City at the forward posts with Harpstcr of Dunbar at the pivot position. The guard assignments went to Captain Fisher of Falls City and Shephard who wore the colors of Table Rock.

ChC. I. ,yy J(yDramat c and dMusic Qontest
IN THE M. I. N. K. Dramatic Music and Tournament, there were two contests representing the dramatic works. These were: A One-Act play contest and a reading contest.
In the Class A play contest, Tecumseh won first place with the play, “The Clod,” by Lewis Beach. This is the second year that Tecumseh has won this honor. Mr. L. D. Hoisted is the director. Auburn presented “Two Crooks and a Lady.”
Four plays were presented in the Class B division. The production of “His Japanese Wife,” by Peru Preparatory High School was judged as the best, but due to a technicality was eliminated from the contest. "Suppressed Desires,” produced by Elmwood, was thereby raised from second to first place. Other entries were “Silence, Please,” produced by Verdon High School, and “A Woman’s Stratagem,” by Sterling High School.
The reading contest was not the usual declamation contest in which memorized selections are given. The contestants did not know what materials they would read but drew certain assignments an hour before the contest. This hour was devoted to practice without help from instructors.
Six schools were represented in this contest. Miss Nina Burdette of Auburn won first place, Miss Ada Brummer of Unadilla second, and Miss Theodore F. Frerichs, of Sterling, third. Other contestants were from Elmwood, Hickman, and Tecumseh.
