Good heaven! anybody going to that would think that school was fun! I 924 GRADUATION OF CLASS OF JANUARY ’ 24 . Another graduation! Just like all the rest! Why don’t they ever do anything interesting? The only thing in the whole program, worthwhile, was Ken February Loysen’s singing. He has such a gorgeous 1 voice. I could listen to him all day! Oh, yes, and the President of the Board of Education gave out the diplomas. Louise Gelli is guardian of the flag, and Chauncey Martin is standard bearer. The rest on the honor roll are: Virginia Chase, Elizabeth Helen, Rolf Bates, Ruth Farnam, Lydia Holbert, George Fallison, Helen Fremd, Althea Persse, William Lutz, Kathryne Gehrke, Robert Salter. The class officers are: President, Horace Howard; Vice-President, Betty Hellen; Secretary, Louise Gelli; Treasurer, Chauncey Martin. 1 9 2 5 FACULTY GIVE PLAY FOR THE CHILDREN’S MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND. The faculty gave a play, this evening, called “Ice-bound” by Owen Davis. I thought it was awfully good; May maybe it was because I’d read the play 8 before and liked it. It was some fun to see the teachers up there. Mr. Spinning was just too funny for words. I don’t mean he was funny, but it was just hilarious to see him up there. WEST HIGH ORCHESTRA AND BAND RECITAL. The Orchestra and Band gave the most perfectly marvelous recital last night! Of course the orchestra and band themselves were marvelous, but April the specialty numbers were the best. Louise 10 Leonard sang, and her voice was just as exquisite as it always is. Helen Rachwalski played her violin, and there was a string quartet. But (and this is the great thing) they had a saxophone solo and a saxophone quartet!! William Santucci played the sax solo, a piece called “Erica”, and oh , it was marvel¬ ous! The quartet was composed of Bill Santucci, Nelson Smith, Elbert Hancock, and David Wright. They played the Quartet from “Rigoletto”, and it was better than any singing you ever heard. I wish they’d play all opera on saxophones. GLEE CLUB CONCERT. Lovely! Lovely! Lovely! all except the recitation. Where on earth did they ever get the wild idea of having a “recitation” at a glee club concert? Oh, well, considering the rest of it, May I suppose you have to overlook a little thing 22 like that. It was just — well, — it was com¬ pletely satisfactory! AND JIMMY GALL¬ OWAY SANG — oh, I think he’s simply marvelous! I just love to hear him. think he’s as good as John McCormack. Of course all the rest were marvelous, too. Doris Davison has a lovely contralto voice, and of course Flo Knope’s violin performed its usual magic. Louise Leonard sang “Ave Maria” and “Spring”, and Chalres Tavrakas, a fine Baritone, sang “Caro Mio Bien”, and “Just Sittin’ Thinkin’ ”. ( ' Continued on page 123 ) Pa e one hundred twenty-one

ADVERTISEMENTS 1 9 2 5 (Continuedfrom page 121) OH! WHAT AN ASSEMBLY! We had the most mar¬ velous time today. The “Mask and Wig” club of the University of Pennsylvania was in town on their way to Buffalo, they gave an impromptu perfor¬ min ' mance of parts from their play, or what ever 20 you want to call it, “Juan of Arkansas”. It was perfectly wonderful! And how they can sing and dance. There were some tenor solos by members of the chorus, and they sang one, an original composition, that made you laugh ’till your sides ached. They had to give three encores ofit. And the fellow who played the saws—you never heard anything like it in all your life! It was great music, too. Then Mr. Me Clellan of the English department of the college gave a speech on college life. Even that was good. Everything was. I wish we could have a few more assemblies like that. I just heard today that Miss See died. She’s our teacher, and such a darling. It doesn’t seem right. She was such a wonderful artist—she was painting the Murals in the hall—on the second floor April across from the library. The last panel 21 isn’t done; I wonder if anyone will ever finish it? My, I wish I were as clever as she! and she studied for years. She was one of the first pupils in the freehand drawing and painting courses at Mechanics—her father was one of the founders, William See, the architect, you know—and she studied under Dow, Chase, and Du Mond. I wonder how many people know that, or appreciate her? 1926 TEA IN ASSEMBLY. The girls of June 1926 had a tea in the assembly today for parents and such things. It was rather fun, but it’s an awfully awkward place to hold a cup in. The arms of the seats aren’t arc ' L big enough to set anything on, so all they 7 7 do is get in the way. They had some funny stuff on the stage tho’, so it wasn’t so bad. COMBINED GLEE CLUBS HOLD CONCERT. It really was an awfully spiffy affair. I mean it was good. You could tell that just by looking at the programme. First, the combined clubs sang “The May Singer”, appropriate, wasn’t it? Then 21 Jerome Smith sang “Morning”and “Cindy”. Jerry is the most darling tenor! The boys’ club sang “Sea Fever”, and “The Garden of lour Heart”. They were awfully good. Vi Rankin sang “Danny Boy”, and “Can’t Remember”. I think she’s perfectly adorable, and she has the loveliest voice! She simply made me cry when she was singing Danny Boy”. Frank Stevens, he has the most gorgeous tenor voice, sang “The Nightingale”, and “Call Me Back”. Then, the Instrumental Ensemble played ‘ La Paloma , and “Pas des Escharpes” from Ballet Symonique, “Callirhoe” (isn’t that the most awful tongue twister?).
