THE TARGET 33 The Mandolin Club The Mandolin Club played at the meeting of the teachers and assisted at one of the noon plays. The pieces played at the teachers ' as- sembly were: " The Bluebird, " " La Virginia, " and " The Presidio March. " They also played for the McKinley School Mothers ' Club. The members number twelve, ten mandolins and two guitars. They will give two selections of new music at our an- nual concert. The Orchestra There were so many applicants for orchestra work this year that Miss Ellerhorst had to organize two orchestras, a Junior and a Senior. The Senior numbers 44 and the Junior 21. The Seniors entertained the peo- ple at the first meeting of the Berk- eley Defense Corps. They also play- ed at one of the Hawthorne School concerts Sunday, May 19. Both orchestras took an important part in the annual concert given by Miss Ellehorst. Some of the selections were: " The Crusaders, " (Senior), " Heavens Resound " (Junior) and " March lone " composed by Miss Brightman and dedicated to the Frances Willard School.

32 THE TARGET get some wood to burn. Time was short. They hurried as fast as they could. Arriving at home, they looked for something to burn. The only dry wood available was a chair and their only bed. They wasted no time but set to work chopping the bed. They hurried with the pieces to the tracks and built a fire. To their joy the wood burned. They did not have long to wait, for around the curve came the train full speed. The old lady took off her red skirt and waved it franti- cally in the air. The daughter tak- ing a piece of barning wood did like- wise. The train came to a stop. The passengers jumped out into the storm and crowded around the heroines. The old lady had fainted. The daughter could only utter the words, " The bridge. " But they had saved many lives. VIRGINIA GIMBAL. OUR ASSEMBLIES. On April third for the promotion of Liberty Bond Day the following patriotic program was given in the Assembly Hall: 1. Chorus, " America. " 2. " The Demands of War, " by Jean Dupont. 3. Chorus, " Keep the Home Fires Burning. " 4. " Loans and Thrift Stamps, " by Howard Elms. 5. " Efficiency, " by Curtis Wright. 6. Chorus, " Over There. " 7. " How We Must Defeat Ger- many, " by Jack Gompertz. 8. Chorus, " Battle Hymn of the Republic. " 9. " The New Liberty Bond Posters " by Miss King. Mr. Fratez gave us an interesting lecture one afternoon on Thrift Stamps, War Savings Stamps and Liberty Bonds. He explained how very much they were needed by L T ncle Sam and put it up to us to help our parents " do -their best " by not asking for parties but for a bigger thing in a Liberty Bond. Mr. Charles Keeler, who is remem- bered for having given us a delight- ful recitation of his poems some time ago, on Tuesday, April twenty-third, addressed us at a twenty-minute as- sembly. He spoke on pet shows and gave an interesting story about John Muir and his dog, Stickeen. He also told us about his personal adventures with pets in India. He ended his interesting talk by inviting all of us to the pet show given for the Red Cross on May eighteenth. He parti- cularly asked us to exhibit our own pets. A very interesting lecture, well illustrated by lantern slides, was giv- en on April twenty-fifth by Professor Kearn. His subject was " War Gar- dens. " The pictures aptly illustrated the fine harvests of both vegetables and money gleaned by different schools and individuals. Professor Kearn impressed upon us that here was one way to accomplish " practical patriotism. " During War Organization Week an interesting program was given for the school: 1. Chorus, " Keep the Home Fires Burning. " 2. Chorus, " Over There. " 3. A short address by Dr. Fisher urging us to go to school as a Patriotic Duty. 4. A half hour of amusement con- ducted by Mr. Snyder. 5. Mrs. Perry on " Our Duty Is To Serve. " 6. " Flag Salute, " Assembly.

34 THE TARGET The Band much better but the unfortunate loss of Scott Elder, solo cornetist, handi- capped it. The band furnished the music on Lincoln ' s Birthday, and for the plays " Horatius at the Bridge, " " The Burg-lar, " " The Depot Lunch Coun- ter, " " The Last Rehearsal, " and also in the Junior Red Cross parade. It has entertained the Mothers ' Club too. Every Friday the band goes down to the Berkeley High School to prac- tice with the Berkeley School Band. This band of which our boys make a large part played in the Liberty Bond Parade and at the Junior Red Cross Pageant. Our band will ap- pear twice on the program of our annual concert and will give new se- lections — an overture, a march, a gallop and a serenade. THE PIANO CLUB. The first regular meeting was held Wednesday, January 31, 1918. Those who contributed to the delightful program were: Ernest de Reynier, " Evening Star " by Wagner; Engenie Schutt, " Tarantelle, " by Mendelssohn; Maurinne Herrman, " Eventide, " by Carrington; Zylpha Allen " Mountain Stream " by Smythe; Laura Durkes, " Canzonetta, " by Schutt; Alice Ped- ersen, " Dream of the Sheapherdess " by Zabitgsky; Trudie Tolles, " To a Wild Rose " by Macdowell; Roger Segure, " Second Mazurka " by God- arcl. A most enjoyable program was rendered Monday, February 25, 1918 by the following members: Helen Reed, " Buona Notte, " Nev- in; Anna Fischer, " Silver Nymphs, "
