TH E CUCKOO 39 Music Department Since the last issue of our Cuckoo several people of musical prominence have visited our Glee Clubs and Chapel exercises. Miss Clara F. Sanford of the State Music Department from Harrisburg visited our Girls Glee Club. She gave the girls some very helpful suggestions. Miss Sanford also visited the grades and was very well pleased with the courses and plans Miss Cover has been carrying out lately. She remarked that the tone quality of both the High School and grades was among the best in the state. Miss Sanford came partly in connection with Music Week April 30th-May 7th and was glad to see that not only the Downing-town Public Schools were carrying this program out, but that the community was co-operating in every possible way to carry out this request. Mr. P. H. Sluyter of West Chester also visited our school several times and at one time heard the entire student body singing, and at another time visited the Girls’ Glee Club. He also commented on the singing of our societies. The most interesting singing contest ever held in Downingtown Public Schools was held Thursday afternoon, May 4, 1922, in the Downingtown High School Auditorium. First came the grade contests. The following grades won banners for their rooms: ■—-a I i i •—o Grade Teachers First..........Miss Quickel Second.........Mrs. H. Frain Third..........Miss Anna Charles Fourth.........Miss W’alker Fifth . . .....Miss Alice Reed Sixth..........Miss D. Freeman Seventh........Miss E. P. Smith Eighth.........Miss M. R. Swayne The individual contest was also a very important event. The winners were as follows: Grade A First Prize: M. Leta Tweed, $2.50. Second Prize: Shirley Stroupe, Silver Pencil. Group B First Prize: Harriet Wood, $2.50. Second Prize: Miriam McKenney, Silver Pencil. Pennsylvania Music Week was also observed in the High School each morning of the week. The following program was carried out. Monday morning. Miss Mary Sener, gave a very clear, instructive report on the Life of Stephen C. Foster, one of Pennsylvania’s greatest composers. Miss Catherine Typson was also with us, and in a very quiet, easy manner, displayed to us what a distinguished musician she is. Miss Tyson played the following selections. 1. Lents Pierot Suite 2. Danse Negre On Tuesday morning Miss Annie Eby gave a most interesting talk on the Nevin Family. Miss Eby in-

40 THE CUCKOO terspersed her talk with a number of records played on the victrola, works of the members of the Nevin family. Miss Philips, a member of the High School faculty sang The Rosary. We all love very much to hear Miss Philips sing, and the best thing of all she always does it gladly. We hope that Miss Philips will always feel this way toward singing for the High School students, as we all love very much to have her sing. She is what we call “Our Favorite”. The report Wednesday morning came from Mildred Barrett on the life of Cadman. Miss Anna L. Hoopes, a member of the Class of ’20 came to us this morning to sing in her usual pleasing way. She sang. 1. “In The Land of The Sky Blue Waters”. 2. At Dawning. We hope that Miss Hoopes will be heard more frequently, singing in our High School in the near future. Mr. P. H. Sluyter of West Chester was with us Thursday morning. In fact he hardly got away from our midst, because we are so very fond of Mr. Sluyter that we can hardly bear to have him leave us. This kind friend has sung for us several times during the past few months and we sincerely hope it will not be the last time. Friday morning Floyd Crisman brought to us a report on the Bach Choir. This was very interesting because one of the members of the Class of '21, is now a meml er of this Choir at Bethlehem. Jacob Pector also spoke on Friday morning. He summarized for us the good of Music Week. Friday evening the Girls’ Glee Club gave a very long and most difficult cantata. Miss Cover our d'reetoress deserves great credit for the result of this number. The entire program of the Musical Friday night was as follows: 1. Community Singing. 2. “The Barefoot Trail” . . .Wiggles 3. “Calvary”..............Tamm (Mr. Swarner, Miss Davis, Mr. N. Dennis, Mrs. N. Dennis.) 4. Community Singing. 5. (a) “Absent”........Metcalf (b) “Hitting The Trail "Burleigh Circuit Quartet. 6. “ Pan, On a Summer Day ”. Bliss Girls’ Glee Club D. H. S. 7. Community Singing. The program was surely a credit to the town and the public schools because everyone was so willing to help. The community singing was especially fine and it surely was an inspiration to hear the many jubilant tones of the grown up boys and girls of Downingtown. BITS WE PICK UP, HERE AND THERE Annie Eby, our efficient pianist of Downingtown High School, we understand will soon be requiring a pipe organ, as that is her latest hobby. It is possible that Annie will play the pipe organ in our new school building. (Continued on page 57)
