The operetta, "The Gypsy Rov
er," which is to be given March 27,
will require a lot of work. Most
people do not realize the tremend
ous task that the director of an op
eretta has. He has to help all the
leads learn their songs, which is not
easy by any means, nad then he
must teach the chorus their songs.
People usually do not attach as
much Importance to the chorus as
to the Veads, but the chorus is one
of the most important parts of an
operetta. They are like the line of
the football team; they are indis
pensable. Everyone knows that a
star backfield man couldn't get
anywhere if he didn't have a good
line to support him. It is just the
same in an operetta; the leads can't
do anything unless they have a good
supporting cast and chorus. Of
course, when you see a football
game, the only person you watch is
the man with the ball and the same
applies to the leads of an operetta.
But to enjoy an operetta you should
watch the chorus sing. They are
the ones who support the leads.
Of course, an operetta is slightly
more refined than a football game,
but the chorus and the football line
seem to be the best comparisons to
We know all the trouble a coach
has In whipping his team into shape
and of the difficult decisions he has
to make In placing his men in po
sitions. The same thing is en
countered in selecting a cast for
an operetta. This year Miss Leath
ers left the decisions entirely up to
different judges who were called in.
This seemed to be most fair because
five persons could judge a voice bet
ter than one, as has been formerly
done. This way It relieves the di
rector of the responsibility of
choosing certain people and of
making others disgusted because
they didn't get a part
We hope to make the operetta
this year a bigger success than any
other year previous to this time.
The support of the people of Hepp
ner will be greatly appreciated.

MORE people could feel fine, be
fit and regular, if they would
only follow the rule of doctors and
hospital! in relieving constipation.
Never take any laxative that is
harsh in action. Or one, the dose of
which can't be exactly measured.
Doctors know the danger if this rule
is violated. They use liquid laxative,
and keep reducing the dose until the
bowels need no help at all.
Reduced dosage is the secret of
aiding Nature in restoring regularity.
You must use a little less laxative
each time, and that's why it should
be a liquid like Syrup Pepsin.

Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, and if
