Vocal Music Department
N SEPTEMBER the music classes of the
seventh grade started out on a busy year.
Along with our daily five minutes of busy
work, we learned to read notes and many
new songs which we have enjoyed very much.
We also have health charts which we were
supposed to keep for every two weeks. One
week We started to take down names of com-
posers and the songs they wrote and the pe-
riod in which they lived. Every once in a while
we gave musical programs in which everyone
took part. Lately each one of the ten seventh-
gfade classes has been working on a musical
About the middle of October individuals
were chosen to sing for the Teachers Conven-
tion. Also a group of seventh-grade students
formed a choir and sang for a concert.
I am sure that we all had a grand time in
music and accomplished a great deal for the
classes meeting but one hour a week.

Music News from the Eighth Grade
One of the pleasantest results of the past
year's eighth grade study was the great satis-
faction of recognizing in concert and radio the
works of the famous composers that We had
brieiiy reviewed throughout the music term.
But we did not spend all our time on the
beautiful music of the past but also discussed
The City of Saginaw was proud to hail
and hear Lawrence Tibbet sing and also that
lovely negro singer, Marion Anderson. Next
year We may have the pleasure of hearing
Nelson Eddy sing at Flint. In Saginaw we
will hear the Philadelphia Symphony which
comes on the Community Concert ticket along
with many other musical exhibitions.
A letter was written to Major Bowes thank-
ing him for honoring Saginaw on his program.
To this we received a pleasing reply from the
Rehearsals! Rehearsals! Rehearsals! That
is what we heard in the notices and from the
pupils. What was going on ? It was the ninth
grade operetta. There were quite a few eighth
grade boys who sang in the choruses of the
operetta among whom were Willard Stevens,
William Boyer, Don and Ted Wagle, Albert
Zolton, Bernard Parcell, Gerald Wruck, Rob-
ert Cox, and Allen Williams. Parts of this
operetta were given at Fuerbringer School for
the P. T. A., May 17th.
The fifth-hour eighth-grade class did a fine
piece of work on their operetta, "The Flower
Queen," with Carolyn Kovelesky as the love-
ly Flower Queen.
The second-hour class gave " The Seven
Old Ladies of Lavender Town." It was color-
ful and funny and the students enjoyed doing
it. Thus ends another interesting and profit-
able year in Room 100.
Ninth Grade Music
This year has been a successful one for
Mrs. Ulman and her students. She has not
only given two operettas but has also helped
in many assemblies and the term concert.
The biggest projects of the year have been
the operettas,"Dicken's Christmas Carol,', and
