THE BOYS' GLEE CLUB
For the past year a group of boys of the Wilson School has been very busy in an activity known
as the Boys' Glee Club. This is directed by Miss Grace Mills.
There are one hundred thirty-three boys in this organization. From this number twenty were cho-
sen to sing on a radio program over station WMBC. They sang a group of negro spirituals.
Early in December this same group sang for the City Council of the Parent-Teacher Association.
Later in the year the boys who possessed unchanged voices had the honor of singing with represen-
tatives from three other intermediate schools, the Durfee, the Jefferson, and the Hutchins. They
sang Benoit's cantata "Into the World." This cantata was directed by Victor Kolar. The accompani-
ment was furnished by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

The Student Council membership is composed of thirty-five pupils, one from each room and school
club. This group is the student governing body of the school.
Under the excellent leadership of the sponsors, Miss Firth and Miss Calcaterra, the organization
proved itself successful in all attempted projects.
The most outstanding activities during the year have been the supervision of the sale of Quills, the
promotion of more interest in the Westzvard School Notes, the sale of Quillettes, the attendance
drive, the support of the sale of Christmas seals for the Red Cross campaign against tuberculosis and
those at Easter for the help of crippled children, and the encouraging of larger attendance at the meet-
ings of the P.-T. A.

SENIOR GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
