In compiling this yearbook, we have endeavor-
ed to edit a publication which will recall vivid pic-
tures of school life as lived by Huron High stu-
dents during the school year 1936-37. To accom-
plish this aim we have employed the best method
for clarifying time-dimmed impressions of the
May the characteristic appearance of Elmer-
our mascot and symbol of school spirit-on the
division pages, bring back many happy memories,
especially of victories. These drawings were
made possible by the many hours devoted to this
work by Miss Crossman, for which we extend to
her our gratitude and deserving thanks.

Fifty years ago on June 3, 1887 the first Huron
High School graduates received their diplomas.
On the following two pages you will see the high
school and senior class as they appeared at that
time. This small section is being introduced into
the annual just as a reminder to those who are
here now, as to what can happen in exactly fifty
May we appreciate the growth of our school
system from the one small building to the many
buildings which we now have.

To the Students of Huron Senior High School:
I wish you the best things in life-Health, Wealth,
Happiness and Peace. Thanks sincerely for the Fine
co-operation you gave in your school work and the
extra curricular activities. My earnest hope is that you
zealously use your future to advance yourself, whether
you continue in school or college or enter the business
I hope you will never forsake quality or truth and
that you will always remain what you are now, a loyal,
0. D. DUNBAE
Greetings to the Students of Huron Senior High School
and may you appreciate the excellent conditions under
which you are now working compared to the condi-
tions under which the students of the past have nec-
Through the past half-century this high school has
grown from a very small one with but a very few stu-
dents to a Senior High School of more than six hun-
dred students with between eight and nine hundred in
the upper four grades which was included in the first
Another great change has come because of the
great variety of elective subjects and of the social func-
tions ancl clubs and the Student Council through which
the students may express their opinions on subjects,
making the high school ve1'y much more of 21 demo-
cratic organization than it formerly was.
May the students of the future help us to continue
the improvement of the high school for the benefit of
those who will be here next year and the years to come.

As We Know Them
After instructing five classes a day in such a things as x plus x, Vera Bailey finds timehto
sponsor the G. A. A. and the P'ep Clubs. thriving 'organizations tat least they sound like 1tJ.
Future secretaries learn their Gregg from Laura Briscoe, who oftimes goes to University
of Iowa in the summers to work toward her Master's Degree.
As a side-line to knowing all about Caesar's Gallic wars and the Commerce and Industry
of our mod-ern world, Wilma Bliss sponsors the Latin Club, the Girl Reserves, and drives
"Horace" at fifty per.
And did you know tsecrcth that Dona Brown, who nowadays instructs people about how to
keep books and sell things, was once chosen as Huron High School's most representative
All such things as choruses and operettas come under Helen Buchanan's baton-likewise
the Treble Clef and Troubadour Clubs which sing special little numbers for special occasions.
Among Kathleen Cone's interests we would say that History is the first in rank, with in-
spiring aspiring journalists as a close second. Besides, she sponsored our school's new Dance
Club this year.
We suggest forcing Catherine Crossman to go on a 40 hour week, 'cause if she isn't painting
scenery of an evening or weekend, 'you're sure to find her making fish or sea weed for the
Junior Prom. Art classes are a mere beginning to her, but even then she gets time somehow
to sponsor the Juniors.
If you see Mike, you'll probably see his master. George Deklotz, close behind. When
not playing with his dog, "Deke," teaches Seniors all about Economics and then hies himself
out to coach football, basketball, or track. And bythe way, we don't want to brag, but
you've heard, of course, of our championshiptdam this year and last? Deke also sponsors
the Junior Class.
We learn the history of our country from Marie Grimes. She sponsors the Annual and
the A Club too.
Listening all day to the clicking of the typewriters stands Oswald Hager. His latest accom-
plishment is his entry into a famed Bazooka trio. Musical talent right in our midst!
All Juniors learn about their country's literature from Dana Harlowe, and some folk
learn Spanish. On the side, Miss Harlowe sponsors such things as the Tiger Cm-ember how
it got the State Award for the best High School publication for 1935-3673, Spanish Club, and
Quill and Scroll.
During a sojourn in Florida, Kathleen Jarard learned how to be healthy and she teaches
it now to Senior girls, in addition to giving instructions in French and English literature, and
sponsoring the French Club, Utopia Club, and Student Council.
If you're at all talented in tooting a horn or rat-a-tat-tatting a drum, you belong in Chris-
tian Kapphal'm's department. While he's new this year, he has certainly made the Band,
Orchestra, and Dance Band prominent organizations.
Newest among our faculty members is Wava Larsen. who spends her days teaching a
variety of Social Sciences and her spare moments tin school, that ish with the Sophomore girls
"Poise and Personality" Clubs.
Sophomore classes study their grammar and literature under Claire Murphy. tlrish,
maybe?D She's grand on committees too.
Doc Reutter leads the way to fame for many an orator and debater, and in between inter-
school contests he manages to instruct all of us in how to give after-dinner speeches, etc. We
do hear tell that he graduated from a college called Carl-etong wherever that is. Seniors
also have him for a Sponsor.
In case you get a whiff of sulphur dioxide gas some day. you may be sure it comes from
one of the Labs over which Ralph Roy presides. For recreation CD outside of Lab hours, he
runs business affairs for the Tiger and Annual.
Up in the Library we can find Miss Elsie Reed, who has at her finger tips all kinds of
knowledge. Those who wish to learn more of Library work are in her Library Club.
For those who want to learn about appreciating music or using verbs correctly, Vivian
Ruhlman conducts classes. Must be fun to learn about rhythms and swings.
Bugs, birds, and beasts, are specialties with A. D. Shepersky, and we hear that his Lab
contains curious things galore. Likewise he sponsors Taxidermy Club and the Senior Class.
Our constitution is the field of Frances Tait, and if you don't care for class work, listen to
"Let Freedom Ring," which is her motto.
New Intra-Mural coach this year is Pere Washabaugh, but as if that's not enough of a
job, he teaches History, Hygiene, Bookkeeping, or Sociology with the greatest of ease and then
sponsors the Sophomore Class.
"The P1ay's the Thing," says Ruth Wilcox, as she coaches Tiger Plays and later Junior and
Senior Class plays. American History and Dramatics classes are sidelines to her interest in
murder mysteries and such like.
And just in case you've never heard, did you know that instructors Bliss, Brown, Cone,
Larsen, Tait, and Washabaugh were all graduates of our High School?

who will have enough credits to graduate in January. Mr. Reutter and Mr. Shep-
ersky are sponsors of the mid-year as well as the regular seniors.
Being in several of the school's activities these seniors have accomplished no
little. Henry Struck was one of the football lettermen, and Gene O'Connor, singing
tenor, received a superior rating in the district mLlsi,e contest. Two others were
members of the A Club, and another, Muriel Meiselbach, was lucky enough to win
the money at one of the bank night drawings.

On Friday evening, April 30, the curtain went up on the Senior Play, K'Hawk
Island," which was sub-titled, "Anything Might Happen Here."
A large audience witnessed a production with one of the most unusual plots
seen in many years on Huron High School's stage. This originality of action was
gained in several ways. In the first act there was a supposed murder which was
merely a farce, in the second act the actual murder was committed in full view of
the audience, and in the last act there was an attempted poisoning which failed.
Under the competent directorship of Miss Ruth Wilcox, the play moved
smoothly and rapidly through the three acts. Off-stage effects of a raging storm
and other sounds to resemble the nearby sea, were capably handled by the pro-
All parts were well chosen and the characters adequately portrayed by a cast,
all of whom had had previous experience in high school dramatics.

Senior Class History
Little Sophomores they called us and we just didn't count. Those above us
must have forgotten that they too had been sophomores. But with Ewald Hohm
carrying our banner and with Miss Bailey and Miss Redmond assisting him, we
managed to survive.
This first year Huron was hostess to the S. D. E. A. Getting exhibits and music
ready for the convention took time and effort and we appreciated the rest of a week
that the School gave us. After that we did settle down to work. Then came the op-
eretta, "Melinka of Astrakhanf' which starred one of our classmates, Norman
Schwietert, as the Chinaman Chin-Chin.
Betty Jean Campbell represented us on the Tiger Staff and we also had our
representative students in all the organizations, especially the "A" Club.
Juniors! And as Juniors we really did count! Being so well pleased with Ewald
Hohm's work we re-elected him to lead us, with Miss Bailey and Mr. Deklotz
We rated a play, "Bab"g were well represented in "Moods and Music," our mu-
sical production of the year, the Tiger Play, "Shirt Sleeves," as well as having num-
erous numbers in the Glee Clubs, Band, Orchestra, Pep Club, Student Council,
Tiger Staff, French, Spanish, and Latin Clubs, G. A. A., and "H" Club.
Though it is the tradition that the Junior year is the most difficult of the three,
we outranked our fellow classmates in the "A" Club.
The two big out-of-town events of the year in which we Juniors had our part,
were the basketball tournament at Sioux Falls where we won the State Basketball
Championship in the Class "A" Division, and the Music Festival at Mitchell in
which our members participated.
Again we were approaching another summer and knowing that the Seniors
would soon be leaving us, we entertained them at the annual J unior-Senior Ban-
quet using as our theme, "Venetian Twilight."
Vacation ended September eighth after an extended week in order to complete
our new school building. We were now the "Dignified Seniors."
We elected O. F. Jacobsen to guide us, along with Mr. Reutter and Mr. Shep-
ersky as his assistant.
The first outstanding event of the year was an unusual Tiger Day, Banquet
and Dance. The Tigers overwhelmed the Aberdeen Eagles in a 14-7 victory. In the
Tiger Play, "Campus Quarantine," eight of the parts were taken by seniors.
Our hopes for the basketball season were high until we were defeated by
Watertown and twice by Sioux Falls. Then at the tournament, for the second year
straight, we won the championship. On the eight-man squad O. F. and Bob were
Seniors. O. F. was picked as one of the all-state forwards for 1937 and also had the
honor of being an all-state football end for 1937. Bob received honorable mention
as an all-state basketball center.
Besides having Basketball in our minds our members in the chorus were prac-
ticing for the presentation of "Lelawala", the Indian operetta on February 19, then
on May 7, they departed for Madison for the spring festival.
And then last but not least, came skip day at Ruskin, May 13, the Senior Fare-
well Dance, May 28, and Commencement. We had now reached our goal in high
school. Diplomas were presented to 131 Seniors on June 2.

To the success of the Junior Class! Outstanding activity in the many phases of
school life has marked the accomplishments of this class. Athletically speaking,
three members of the team-Sig, Vincent, and Norman-which brought home the
State A championship basketball trophy, were Juniors. Many lettermen on football
and track teams were also Juniors. Junior girls helped to shoot the G. A. A. All-star
basketball team to its lofty position.
Members of this class could be found in the various musical organizations and
furnished talent capable of taking several leads in the operetta, "Lelawala." Jour-
nalistic and forensic activities claimed the interests of others. One of the class was
elected President of the SDHSPA. ln Forensics the Juniors established an enviable
record. One Junior placed excellent in State Declamatory contest, another won
third place in the State extemporaneous speaking, and four more were members
of the debate squad.
The climax of each Junior's career comes at the time of the Junior-Senior
Banquet given in honor of the graduating Seniors. This banquet was held at the
Marvin Hughitt Hotel followed by dancing beneath colored fish in the college
auditorium. On this occasion couples danced while colorful fish decorations swam
around overhead to music furnished by Scott Dexter's orchestra.
Mary Haney and James Crawford as President and Vice-President shouldered
the heavy burdens of the class' work, while Norman Engelbretson very ably as-
sumed the work of treasurer. Miss Crossman and M1'. Deklotz were the class
Left to right: Miss Wilcox. Stam, Moore, Adams, Knapp, Daum, Moar, Hornbeck, Hebron,
"All hands back-stage!" With this command from the director, Miss Wilcox,
the curtain rose on "Adam and Eva," a cleverly written play which offered excel-
lent opportunity for an artistic amateur production.
The story is woven around Mr. King fBob Adamsl, a wealthy rubber plantation
owner who, after some encouragement from Dr. Delmater fBilly Hebronj leaves
his family, Helen Hornbeck, Ruth Knapp, Harry Daum, Gerald Wagner, and Velma
Clemmens, in the hands of Marvin Moar, one of his employees. Seeing the worth-
lessness of the family, Marvin fAdam Smithj fakes a story of ruin, making them
believe their father is penniless. When Mr. King returns he finds his family, includ-
ing Gene Moore, raising chickens on a farm in New Jersey. Eva and Adam fall in
love, and all ends well.

Early in the fall the Sophomore Class met in the gymnasium for the purpose
of organizing and electing the class officers. Since then the Class of '39 has made it-
self a real part of the school life and its members can be found in every branch of
the school's activities.
The Pi Alpha Iota Sorority, for Sophomore girls, was started this year by Miss
Larsen. It has put on a general assembly program of a style show, and has held a
formal banquet and dance. Another Sophomore club which came into existence only
this year was the Taxidermy Club. Under the guidance of Mr. Shepersky, the
members follow the interesting paths into the world of taxidermy which is so
fascinating to the beginner.
The outstanding activity of the class this year was the Sophomore Dance.

Organized first in 1930, the Student Council has again had a busy year. The
purpose of the Student Council is that of a clearing house between the students
and the sch0ol's management. It is the chance for students to express opinions
This year the Council sponsored two dances, organized the Tiger Day festiv-
ities and also the Tiger Play. 'Campus Quarantine," given on November 20.
The play was a light comedy in which a college sorority house is quarantined
for Scarlet Fever. Two boys who wait table in the house are also confined. ln the
play it seems as though everyone inside wants to get out and everyone outside tries
to get in. Outstanding was Betty Sheeks, who, taking over the lead two days before
the play was presented, had only two rehearsals in which to prepare.

Among the students who were able to maintain a high scholastic standard this
year was found an unusually large number of the most representative students in
extra-curricular activities, athletics, debate, glee club, and dramatics. To be eligible
for membership a student must average for all subjects any one six-weeks at least
an A minus. During this school year sixty-eight students have been members. The
Seniors had the largest number, thirty-one, and the Sophomores stood second with
twenty-three. Although this is an honorary club with no particular activities the
members have special privileges which are exemptions from final examinations in
any one subject in which the student has at least an A minus average, and permis-
sion to be absent from one study period either at the beginning or end of each day.
Officers were elected each semester and Miss Grimes was faculty advisor.

This year, immediately after its early organization, the Spanish Club became
very active, By innumerable candy sales under the official direction of Betty Dun-
bar, sufficient money was secured so that no dues were collected from the members.
In December a dance was sponsored by the Club having the Spanish Fiesta as
a theme, thc music being furnished by Scott Dexter's orchestra.
The purpose of the Club is to create a greater interest among the students in
Spanish literature and life, and to promote more fiuent speaking of the language
among the students. To help attain these aims, prominent speakers gave interest-
ing talks on various phases of Spanish life and Spanish-speaking countries. Any
student taking, or having taken, Spanish is eligible for club membership.

For the purpose of promoting better shorthand writing the Gregg Publishing Company
sponsors an annual O. G. A. contest in which writers of Gregg Shorthand from all over the
world are eligible to enter. It was this contest in which Huron won fourth place this year.
Students submit specimens of their best shorthand writing which is judged on the basis
of freedom of movement, application of the principles of the theory, proportion in length, uni-
formity and correctness of slant. curvature, and joining, and size and spacing of notes. If a
paper shows a high degree of skill the writer is admitted to the Order of Gregg Artists, and
if it shows superior technique, in addition to being admitted to the Order, he is given an
honorable mention gold pin.
'I'his year Huron High School shorthand students, with two exceptions, became members
of the Order and won 43 honorable mention pins. Thereby, winning fourth place in the High
School and College Division.

Huron High School enjoyed another V6l'y successful football season under the
coaching of George Deklotz, to finish third in the Conference standings. With a few
breaks Huron may very easily have gone through the season undefeated, having
suffered only one defeat at the hands of an inferior Mitchell team.
'I'he outstanding playing was done this year by Sig Kulawik, who was chosen
All-State half-back, O. F. Jacobsen, All-State end, Dellos Boyd and Ed Nelson, Co-
Captainsg Howard Langland, guard, and Ewald Hohm. Kulawik's kicking, passing,
and running were sensational. He had a very adept receiver in "Jake"
The seniors to be lost by graduation this year are Jacobsen, Bates, Nelson,
Langland, Boyd, and Hohm. Their places will be extremely difficult to fill but there
were some excellent reserves this year, and so Huron may well look forward to
another highly successful football season next fall under the coaching of George
Deklotz, who employs the Notre Dame system.
For the past five years, Huron has had a record unequalled by any team, a
championship every year:
1932-State and Conference Football Champions
1933-Conference Basketball Champions
1934-Conference Basketball Champions and State and Conference

South Dakota state basketball titlists for the second consecutive year . . . a team that
takes rank with other fine Tiger combinations that have preceded it on state championship
thrones . . . and the club to beat in next year's title scramble.
That paragraph presents a "candid camera" sketch of Huron High School's 1937 Tigers,
although if you ask the opinion of Coach George Deklotz, he'll steadfastly maintain that some-
tihing is out of focus when a 1938 championship is even so much as hinted. Not that he won't
be gunning for further laurels, but three straight, he insists, is going just a bit too far.
It was another glamorous campaign for those 1937 Tigers. There were ups and downs, dis-
couraging adversities caused by early-season illness of Bob Osborn, star center, and there
were occasional defeats mixed in with the long string of triumphs.
But in reviewing the past season, which was climaxed with another unstoppable' march
through the "suicide" lower bracket of a power-laden state tournament field, deeds of the
1937 Tigers must go down among the most glorious exploits ever credited to a Huron High
School athletic team.
Defending state champions when the season broke open but nevertheless rated generally
as inferior to Sioux Falls' great team, the Tigers found their true strength at the right time.
When the boys started "playing for keeps" in that history-making state tournament on the
Mitchell Corn Palace hardwood, Coach Deklotz was ready with a team that left fans gasping
at the manner in which Huron dribblers handled the situation. So complete was this mastery
that not a foe, not even the highly reputed Sioux Falls outfit, could come within 10 points of
derailing the high geared Tiger steamroller.
Branded as "lucky" when they upset a strong 1936 state tournament field, the newest Tiger
edition was doped to stop Yankton in the first round of the state hardwood carnival. Beyond
that, in view of the difficult lower bracket course which included Sioux Falls, before whom
they had fallen twice during the regular season, none would give Coach Deklotz' kids a chance
of furthering their aspirations for a second straight crown. But after toppling Yankton 28 to
16 with a great last period outburst, Sioux Falls was made to pay for its past misdeeds, 29 to
18, as the Huron team flashed one of the best performances in state tournament history. More
than 5,000 pop-eyed fans then jammed the Corn Palace to see the Tigers down a stubborn
Mitchell outfit in the championship final, 29 to 16. In that game the battle-weary Tigers
showed their real mettle by overcoming an early six point deficit to hammer out a triumph.
The reason Coach Deklotz won't give you a tumble when a 1938 state title is mentioned?
Largely because he will lose two such brilliant performers as all-state O. F. Jacobsen,
high scoring forward, and Bob Osborn, center, perhaps the most underrated player to perform
in the state tourney.
But those who insist the Tigers will be in the thick of things next year have as their
argument-and a rather weighty one, too-return of Sigmund Kulawik, all-state forward with
state championship Huron teams the past two years, and that fine defensive duo of Vince
McGinty and Bud Ebert, the latter a sophomore who made amazing late-season development
to land a regular berth. Then there will be Norman Engelbretson, "handy man" with the Tigers
the past two campaignsg Tad Boyle and Vernon Bice of the 1937 state tournament squadg and
big Norman Peterson, who hopes to step into Osborn's shoes when the Tigers set out next
winter to make it three in a row.
The 1938 campaign will be marked with a home encounter against Edison High of Minne-
apolis, 1937 Minnesota state champions and one of three teams to trip Huron during the past
season. Possibility is seen that the Huron-Edison game may be broadened into a four-corner-
ed scrap involving state champions of North Dakota and Nebraska.
In addition to this December test against foreign competition the Tigers will also have
other early season assignments, to be followed by a full lineup of games against Eastern South
Dakota conference opponents in which they will strive to improve upon a 1937 runner-up rating

The "H" Club is composed only of members that have won a letter in some Varsity sport.
The requirements to win a letter are quite rigid, thereby making the club exclusive.
This club of Huron High School was founded in 1927, with Sam Perrin as President. It
was not until 1930 that the club was again active, when Bob Bryan was President,
The purpose of the club is to promote athletics within the school, good fellowship, and
sportsmanship among the athletes of Huron High.
Sole rights to sell candy at all athletic contests has been granted to the "H" Club, the
receipts from which are used for purchasing medals and other awards, and entertainments.
To honor the Huron State Basketball Champions, the club sponsored a dance at the close
of the season, which was a successful climax to a satisfying season.
Necessary qualifications to win a coveted "H" are as follows:
Football: Playing in one half of the games, half of which must be conference games.
Basketball: Play in eight quarters or in half the games, four of which must be Conference
Track: Win a first in a dual meet or 5 points in a dual meet, or place in the regional meet
or run on a relay team that places.
In all cases a good spirit of sportsmanship must be shown, and willingness to cooperate.
The President of the club for 1936-37 is O. F. Jacobsen, with Ewald Hohm as Secretary-

One of the oustanding features of the athletic contests this year has been the
splendid increase in school spirit. A great deal of the credit for this is due to the
activeness and enthusiasm of the Pep Club. Through the efforts of the cheer lead-
crs who had been elected at the beginning of the school year, the Senior Pep Club of
50 or 60 Juniors and Seniors took shape and flourished under the guidance of Miss
Bailey and Mr. Washabaugh who had been elected Co-Sponsors. The Cheerleaders
Lois M. Peterson, Jeanne Farrow, and Ruth E. Knapp, were designated President,
Vice-President, and Secretary of the club respectively.
A Junior Pep Club was later organized of 50 Sophomores. This club will next
year help make up the active Pep Club. New life and color were added to the pep
meetings and games by the appearance of Elmer, our High School Mascot. The
Cheerleaders sported new, bright, orange satin jackets while from the bleachers
added color came in the form of orange feathers Worn in hats, coat lapels, and
wherever the people fancied. The sale of these feathers was undertaken by the Pep
Club for exactly the purpose it accomplished, adding color to the games.

The Girl's Athletic Association was organized in 1927 in Huron High School to promote
health and good sportsmanship among the girls. During this year members participated in
volley ball, basketball, and kittenball as major sports. Minor activities were tennis, bicycling,
For these activities points and awards are giveng for a letter. 500 points: numerals. 1000
pointsg and a star, 1400 points. Besides the regular meetings the girls this year have enjoy-
ed a pot-luck supper, the annual coed prom. and a banquet at which eleven girls were pre-
sented with letters. Three seniors were recipients of numerals. The following were officers
for this year:

"Thunder Waters" or the beautiful Indian legend of the Niagara provides the
background for "Lelawala.',
When war is threatened on the Oniahgahrahs by the tribe of the Delawares, the
Great Spirit of the Wate1's demands the sacrifice of a virgin to appease his anger.
Lelawala, the daughter of Chief Wokomis, volunteers. During this time white char-
acters appear: Eagle Eye, Bilks, Major Wallace and Lord Tatlcr, Mabel, Clarinda,
and the soldiers of the fort along with their families.
Shungela, a Wyandotte chiefs son, appears to woo Lelawala. IIC is rejected,
and when Klolowar, the l2llllG1',S brother, interferes, Shungela kills him.
The rejected lover conceives the plan of spiriting away the Indian maiden and
her friend, Mabel. Act II opens with the two maids in captivity. Eagle Eye creeps
into camp and effects their escape. In Scene 2 of this Act the successful war party
returns and there is great joy and feasting. Then Marpeetopah. the Prophetess, in-
terprets another spirit messageg Lelawala must be sent over Niagara Falls in a white,
flower-bedecked canoe, the following day.
Act III finds Marpeetopah bringing a new, and more joyful message to the In-
dians, sparing Lelawala. Here a new custom is developed, whereby the sacrificial
canoe is used for a harmless ceremony. Lelawala is wedded to Sownnas, an Algon-
quin lover, and all ends happily.

The vocal music department of the Senior High School is under the supervision
of Miss Helen Buchanan with her two accompanists, Kathryn Jean Saylor and
This department is composed of a Girls' Glee Club and a Boys' Glee Club.
These two combine into a Mixed Chorus, of one hundred sixty-seven voices. The
president of the organization is Bob Hillg secretary and treasurer, Betty Sheeks.
Selected from this group are two smaller groups-the Troubadors for boys, and the
Treble Clef Club for the girls. The former is limited to twelve members and 'the
latter to sixteen. These two organizations sing at school affairs, clubs, teas, and
the smaller functions where it is difficult to obtain room for larger groups.
One of the functions they took part in this year was the annual Wednesday
Musical Candle Lighting Service held December tenth in the Presbyterian Church,
made festive with evergreen trees and boughs. Blue lights and twinkling candles
were also used to make the scene more effective. Using this Christmas atmosphere
as a background the Treble Clef and Troubadors attired in English Carolling cos-
tumes presented a group of Christmas carols. Concluding their singing this year
the Treble Clef Club sang at Commencement.
In the first part of the second semester the Mixed Chorus presented the dra-
matic Indian operetta "Lelawala," According to the legend, Lelawala was the daugh-
ter of an Indian chieftan who offered to sacrifice her life in the falls to save the
tribe from war with the Delawares. In time she was saved and did not sacrifice her-
self. The effective outdoor scenery was designed and painted by Miss Crossman
and her art classes. The costumes made from tan flannel were very striking, partic-
ularly the colored beads made of macaroni.
Resting for a week after the strenuous work on Lelawala, the Glee Clubs began
preparing for their home concert May fourteenth. The colorful formals worn by
the girls carried out the hint of spring, found in the music.
The annual Music Festival in which Brookings, Mitchell, Madison, and Huron
participate, was held in the new armory-auditorium at Madison, Friday, May
seventh. The Huron participants were carried to Madison on a special train on the
Milwaukee Railroad. The train left Huron at six in the morning and left Madison
More than 2,500 persons were seated in the auditorium, including the big au-
dience, more than 500 boys and girls in the massed chorus arranged in tiers upon
the stage, more than 200 in the massed orchestra and approximately 175 in the
combined band of the four schools.
Rehearsals of the three massed groups were held in the morning and afternoon
under the direction of the guest conductorsg William MacPhail, president of the
MacPhail School of Music in Minneappolis, and Prof. Abe Pepinsky, head of the mu-
sic department at the University of Minnesota. Kathryn Jean Saylor of Huron was
one of the pianists selected to accompany the chorus.
Following the conclusion of the program student participants enjoyed dancing
until midnight on the splendid floor, music furnished by Manthey's orchestra. The
local photographer took a picture of the massed chorus upon the stage before the
Once back in Huron, final rehearsals were then started by the chorus for the
Baccalaureate program and by a group of sixteen seniors selected from the chorus
who sang at the Commencement program June second.
