When it comes to a juvenile program
the Woodmere pupils are certainly past
masters in the art. Evidently their
reputation in this respect is of long
standing Judging from the audience
which assembled at the school Friday
evening to enjoy the entertainment
given by the pnpiis in conjunction with
the Boy Scouts and Camp Fire Girto.
There is nothing more winsome in the
way of entertainments than the produc
tions of small boys and girls, exhibiting
as it does careful training combined
with youthful shyness and modesty
which is always captivating. The Wood-
mere pupils are delightfully refreshing
in their presentation of a program. The
natural spontaneity of childhood, un
spoiled by self-conscious affectation, and

tail, wax wholly (-harming.
being highly entertained, the parents
and friends present felt themselves once
more thrilled with the spirit of youth
and were the better for the experience.
The program in detail follows:
"Cornin'Thru The Rye’’—Ten Girto.
Piano Solo—Lenry Boogaret.
Vocal Duet—Romeo and Juliet.
Selected Reading —
Piano Duet—Elsie Bergner an<ivVir-
A Natural Spell—Eight Boys.
Piano Duet—Robie Cobb and Lucile
Selected Reading—Miss Roberta Down
Bov Scot-r A xd C ampfire 8 bcti «:>!«.
Violin Solo—Arthur Hughes.
It would be very difficult to make se
lections for special mention, but the ten
little girls who gave "Coinin’ Thru The
Rye" will have to share the honors with
the ten bonnie maidens who represent
ed their grandmothers in the "Minuet,”
while the eight rollicking boys in the
“Natural Spell” which simply cannot
be described, brought down the house.
Also. “Romeo and Juliet” was as clever
a stunt as the program contained.
The play entitled, "Every Boy,” was
given by the Boy Scouts and Camp Fire
Girls and was a clever little presentation
of the battle between the vices and the
virtues which goes on in the mind and
heart of “every boy” and which he must
fight for himself ere he arrives at a clean
and noble manhood.
The vices and
virtues were represented by boys and
girls in a very creditable manner.
Interspersed throughout the program
were selections by the orchestra of the
Millard Avenue Presbyterian Church,
who kindly contributed their services for
this occasion free of charge
music was greatly enjoyed, as were the
readings of Miss Roberta Downing, of
the Gillespie School of Expression.
Scoutmaster Mr. J. R. Leach, ex
plained tlie movement, correcting some
wrong impressions which seemed to pre
vail in certain sections that the move
ment was military in its nature. This,
he said, was absolutely wrong. The
movement was positively non-military
and non-seetariau. Some of the most
eminent men of the country were con
nected with the organization in an
honorary and advisory capacity. The
movement is now world-wide in extent.
