Lelawala STORY "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 Byrne Anderson. 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 at midnight. 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 dance. 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.
