Glee Club Concert a Big
Cenlral Point High School Students
Make a Hit
The First Annual C o n c e r t
given by the Central Point High
School Glee Club was a big suc
cess, and much praise is due
both the students taking part in
the program and the teachers
who worked hard for weeks to
drill them for this, their first ap
pearance in a public recital.
Prof. Smith was the director of
the Glee Club and Miss Bracons
the accompanist, both teachers
winning the appreciation of the
high school patrons by the merit
of the program presented.
A good audience had gathered
to hear the program of song and
wit so delightfully rendered by
the young people. The first num
ber by the Glee Club, “ A n
chored,” was delightful, and the
Missouri waltz song by the .sep
tette was a real treat. This
Missouri negro song has a swing
that is irresistible.
The violin solo by Mr. Smith
was fine and the audience was
disappointed because he was not
prepared to respond to the en
core that followed the rendition
of his selection.
The piano solo by Miss Wallace
was prettily rendered, also. The
number entitled “ Hiwaiian Hits”
was very pleasing, this number
pulsating with a buoyancy and
enthusiasm that formed a de
lightful contrast to that which

larity’s Reception” , was the best
number on the program in the
way of wit. Every one laughed
heartily all through this sketch.
Part two opened with a very
pretty song— “ Barcarole” , by
the Glee Club. The^ukulele med
leys by Miss Beebe were rich in
wit and made a hit with the
audience. “ Ashes of Hoses” ,
by the Glee Club, was well ren
dered; and the character sketch,
the impersonation of a negro
servant girl of a Southern home,
presented by Miss Lull, was
The closing number by the
Glee Club, “ Soldier Song” , was
undoubtedly the most pleasing
number on the program. Coming
at a time when the National
patriotism is raised to a high
pitch, this patriotic song made a
most delightful, inspiring impres
sion on the minds of those pres
ent. Not only was the senti
ment delightful, but the rendition
as well, the young people sing
ing it with sincere enthusiasm.

Thirty-two Sign Ip as Red Cross
At the preaching service held
at the Table Rock schoolhouse
last Sunday afternoon by Rev.
Paul S. Bandy of Central Point,
the choir of the Central Point
Presbyterian church sang a port
ion of the Easter contata, “The
Risen King” , music composed by
Schnecker, and Herbert Clark,
baritone, sang a delightful Eas
ter solo. Miss Wallace presided
at the piano.
A large crowd had gathered to
hear the Red Cross work pres
ented by R. H. Paxson, the
chairman of the Central Point
auxiliary recently organized.
Mr. Paxson is very enthusiastic
about the work and presented
the subject of the Red Cross
work in a very clear, earnest
manner. As Mr. Paxson served
with the U. S. Red Cross in the
Spanish-American War in the
Philipines. he was in a position
to explain the humanitarian
work of this great organization in
a comprehensive way.
Following the presentation of
the movement by Mr. Paxson,
Rev. Bandy called on Col. Wash
burn of Table Rock for a talk.
He gave an interesting talk,
explaining his stand in this pres
ent crisis and showed that he,
too, was enthusiastic about the
Red Cross work. By the time
he had finished his talk, the
enthusiasm had taken the entire
audience. The organization of
the Table Rock Auxiliary was
effected in short order with the
following officers elected: chair
man, Mrs. Washburn; director,
Mrs. J. C. Pendleton; secretary,
Miss Mary Nealon; treasurer,
On Mrs. Washburn’s request
