Boardman s home talent again
came to the fore on Friday night
when a versatile program was given
for the benefit of the gymnasium
fund of the P. T. A. The program
was an international one with many
nations represented. All numbers
were good and the audience which
was large was also enthusiastic and
generous with applause. The pro
gram was as follows: fan dance,
Elvira Jenkins and Imogene Wil
son representing Japan; Hawaiian
number, Mr. Brown, Mr. Macomber,
Buster Rands, Ray Barlow and Mr.
Mstrschat; Holland, Mrs. Titus and
Miss Shellenberger; a duet, Italy,
was represented by Mr. Klitz with
his accordian, playing three pieces
to the delight of the crowd, but
when the tune of Captain Jinks was
given many a person in the audi
ence began to shake a "Methodist
foot." George Wicklander gave a
reading in Swedish Barnagladje.
Sybil Grace Macomber made a little
Spanish dancer with a realistic cos
tume and tambourine. Mr. Brown
played the Marseillaise, garbed as
a Frenchman; he has been of much
help this year with his musical abil
ity, playing the cornet, violin, uke
lele with equal facility. A Chinese
song and dance was well given by
Clara Mae Dillon, Catherine Mead,
Alice Wicklander and Echo Coats.
Mr. Marschat sang a Bohemian folk
song which was cleverly pantom
imed by Sybil Macomber and Bus
ter Rands, and also a Bohemian lul
laby. The Irish jig put on by Mary
Chaffee and Margaret Smith was
well received as was the Gypsy
number by Mesdames Coats and
Surface. A German dialect reading
was given1 by Miss Hattie Schultz.
The Negroes made a tremendous
hit. They were the same artisits as
comprised the Hawaiian troupe,
with Dave Rose assisting. Mrs. Guy
Barlow very kindly filled in at the
last moment with the Scotch num
ber and very petite she was with
her Scotch cap and shawl. A rip
ple of laughter went through the
audience when little Chloe recog
nized her mother as the former was
about half way through her dance.
The little one called out, "Mamma,"
in a voice of surprise. The closing
selection was given by the Messrs.
and Mesdames Ingaard and Adolf
Skoubo, Nela Kristensen and Aage
Jensen, who sang two songs in Dan
ish with Mrs. A. Skoubo playing
her violin. This was followed by
two dances which were beautiful,
with striking costumes and attrac

The time for election of teachers
is soon at hand and parents are
awaiting the decisions of the board
with fear and trembling. Many
would like to see some of the old
teachers retained but the concensus
of opinion seems to be that some of
the positions might be filled more
satisfactorily. Electing a teacher
is more or less of a gamble, for of
ten one who comes with the best of
recommendations proves to be med
iocre. If she is successful in her
work and is an asset to the com
munity she should be retained; if
not there should be no hesitancy
about finding another, for with
three normal schools turning out
teachers by the hundreds there is
plenty of material.
