Roney was here last wint he said there were 88 good voices among the pupils of our publio schools as anywhere on earth. Prof. Roney is a great authority on singing and his travels and experience have made him a quick judge of local conditions. There is no doubt of the truth of his statement concerning the musical talent in our public schools. The time for development is short but the results are marvelous.

One of the things to be proud of is the High School girls chorus. Insufficient time has been given to the work but their music is well worth listing to and the numbers to be given at the concert Friday night would adorn any concert program.

The names of the girls who will sing are as follows: first sopranos, Alice Boone, Helen Sellick, Pauline Murphy, Anna Olson, Gail Hamilton and Ethel Welch; second sopranos, Ruth Peterson, Gea Doud, Laura Becker, Ethel Vaughn, Emma Williams, Gladys Christy; first altos, Bertha Beales, Lulu Miller, Helen Williams, Joy Smith; second altos Zulah Stringham, Miriam Smyth, Edna Flummer, Minnie Flummer and Dora McNutt.

The selection for this concert will be op. 42 the melody of which runs at times in two beats in the measure while the accom panimeot keeps up the regular 3 beat waltz rythm, a more difficult feat than appearance would indicate. Miss Ackerman has the modern technical facility for playing these things and possesses the spirit, fervor and abandon necessary to piay the piano acceptiably.

Her: playing on the pipe organ is characterized by good taste and ready adaptation to the instrument. Miss Ackerman will sing theoradle hymn of the Virgin. A tovlier song was never written.
