Short Stay Here.
M. A. 'Clevett. physical director of
the Y. M. C. A., has resigned his posi
tion, and expects to leave for the west
next week. The board of directors, at
a meeting yesterday, accepted his res
ignation, and granted his request for
release At an early date.
Mr. Clevett came to the Rock Island
association last fall, and during the
time that Tie has been here, has done
splendid work among the men and
boys. The news of his resignation will
he anything but pleasing to the scores
who have become acquainted with him
in the gymnasium during the past sea
son. He bad expected to remain in his
work here until June, but the call of
the wild was too strong, and so he de
rided to leave sooner than was at first

which they have lately acquired. They
expect to spend the next year or two
in pioneering, and having had enough
of that, will probably return to- this
part of the world for Mr. Clevett to re
sume his association work.
HOPE FOR RET CRN.
In releasing him, the board gave
strong words of appreciation of the
excellent work that Mr. Clevett has
done for the local association, and ex
pressed the hope that he may be ready
to quit farming by the time the new
building is ready for work, so that he
can return to his classes in this city.
His efforts have met with remarkable
success, working with the meager
equipment of the old building. He has
had the privilege of leading some of
the Largest classes ever mustered on
the old gymnasium floor, and has put
through a season's work that taxed
the possibilities of the equipment with
which bo worked.

At High School
Miss Trowbridge of the faculty yes
terday gave an illustrated lecture to
her second half-year freshmen English
classes. The topic of her lecture was
John Bunyan and Pilgrim's Progress.
The students enjoyed it very much and
hope to have more of the lessons taught
in this way. Horace Howard, also of
the faculty, is arranging for another
lecture of this kind to illustrate Scott's
"Lady of the Ike," which the sopho
more classes are studying. The plan
is gaining favor with all the members
of the school.
Nearly all the acts for the frolic,
to he given Friday and Saturday even
ing of this week have been worked
up to perfection and the affair is now
certain to be a huge success. The big
feature is to be the continuous vaude
ville presented by the alumni and
will be held In the gymnasium both
evenings, beginning at 9:30. Five
thousand hills have been distributed
throughout the city and the affair has
been well advertised. The aim is to
raise money to aid in maintaining ath
letics at the school.
The cross country run schedueld
for this afternoon had to be postpon
ed on account of the weather. Sixty
eight boys are entered. .
The freshmen also met in the as
sembly and picked Fay Reeves as
baseball captain and Clifford Whisler
Last evening after school the Bopho-
j mores met and elected leaders for
their track and baseball teams. Will
Whisler was chosen captain for the
nine and Earl Chalk, manager, while
Chalk was elected captain of the track
and Philbrook manager.

AT THE ILLINOIS.
Peter Red Elk, who plays the Indian
role of "Little Fox" in "As Told in the
Hills," at the Illinois, Saturday, mati
nee and nitht, bears the uistlnction
of being the only male representative
of the American Indian on the stage
todav. His stage career was prompt
ed by his success in private theatri
cals given by the students of Haskell,
i the Indian school of which he is a
' graduate. Being of a roving nature
the young Sioux has not only appeared
haa one or two comedians, but the Lor-
enz brothers take any number of vol
i unteers on the stage, and lo and be
; hold they have them all make the en
tire audience scream with laughter
with the funny antics of the sensitives
acting to the suggestions of the Lorenz
brothers. The brothers will appear
at the Illinois the week of April 22-28.

a state where they do not know
whether they are listening to a boy or
girl. The act is styled "Flo and Wyn
ne" and opens with a very clever song
duet. One young woman then re
moves a wig and apparently has fooled
the audience into believing they are
gazing at a young man who has done
a remarkable piece of character work.
But here is where the mystery comes
In. Manager Dolly says the boy hap
pens to be a girl who, for purposes of
deception, wears her hair in male fash
ion. At any rate, the deception is so
cleverly done that the piece of work
is easily the season's novelty.
