The great need of America today is unity of spirit and the dedication of self to a great common cause. Music is a form of spiritual expression which of itself creates spiritual values and helps to bring about spiritual union. We dedicate ourselves in songs be- cause we can sing in our souls things we cannot find words to say in prose. The Boys' Chorus, composed of approximately forty voices under the direction of Mrs. G. E. Engelien, finds that they are able to put unlimited zeal and enthusiasm into their songsg and they prove that singing together brings people together. The outstanding event of the season in which this group parti- cipated was the Spring Festival. The Boys' Quintette sang at the Kent County Luncheon. No one knows what these boys will have to endure before this war is over. lf we have given them some enjoyable hours and lifted their spirits through this singing of music, then it was worth all the effort involved to maintain such organizations. Music will add much to the moral strength of the nation, at a critical hour, when the strength of America is the hope of the world. i521 Bo s' Chorus

XY"eird blood-curdling screams, shadowy phantom scarectows, and chairs which rocked by mysterious means offered an evening of intense excitement. The "Clarita" diamond was the object around which the plot revolved. Anthony Gage, its owner, was believed to have been wronged by Roderick, his cousin, who desired its possession Thirty years after the theft, the time of the play, Roderick dis- closed that the diamond is still hidden in Gage Manor. The scarecrow, believed to be Anthony's ghost seeking Rode- rick, somehow spirited him away. Roderick's ghostly-being, So the relatives thought, returned and forced a confession from Adam Throgg, his butler: thus, clearing his name. Then Roderick showed himself perfectly safe and alive. Under the direction of Mr. Zylstra, the members of the cast portrayed their respective roles very fittingly. The combined ef- forts of the various committees contributed much to the success of the performance. C511

It is divided into two sections-the Freshman-Sophomore Chorus and the junior-Senior Chorus. Ensembles and soloists from this group participated in many assembly programs at school as well as in various churches in the community. Students taking part in this phase included Constance Hartman, Marcia Steketee, jane Demoray, Dorothy Demoray, and Beatrice Drenten. During these trying times it is exceedingly important that music becomes a Part of every one's life. It has been said that in the life of any artist the achievements of yesterday always must fade before the opportunities of today. Therefore an artist strives continually to improve his work. That is what our choral groups aim to do, but not without pleasure, for they make it their business to enjoy everything they do. ii 53 Il
