rchorus and solistc., Dho was always on hand and cl-
lwcys cocpcrntin.g The accompaniment is p high part
of any musical program and,Mrss McCormick made it
lplcy such n part in this Gporctta.
l Miss Strand drilled Q bevy of first graders in
two drill-canoes, the stops and actions of which had

iwccks of hard work but the results were worth the
effort. , i
