Bible Class of Chris-
Martin Schulz, head of the music department, directed the singing by a cappella choir composed of forty voices, the numbers being "When Twilight Shadows Fall" and "Fairest Lord Jesus." Robert Stith sang "The Lost Chord," and two numbers were given by the high school rhythm sisters, the Misses Maverne Rhodes, Virginia Richardson and Karlene Kanouse.
Bass Directs Program
Leslie Day, president of the class, called upon Walter Hungerford, a teacher of the class, to open the meeting with prayer and prsented Emerson Bass, also, a teacher of the class, to direct the program. The dismissal prayer was given by the Rev. Paul E. Million, pastor of the church.
Mr. Loper, who was presented by Mr. Bass, spoke on "Adjustments." The speaker expressed pride in the accomplishments of the students, who had so pleasantly entertained the class, but admitted that the public hears all too little about the work of the students in music, commercial and debating contests in a number of which they have recently acquitted themselves with high honors for the school and community. Admission was made that these contests fail to attract the attention they should owing to the fact of the athletic side of student life. "And, of course," the speaker said, "schools like to provide for the public that which the public likes most."
