MUSICIANS PLACE HIGH AT WHITEFISH SAT. A group of 69 tired but happy students and chaperons returned Sunday morning at 5 o'clock from the Northwest Montana Music Festi val at Whitefish. Groups participating in the festi val were the band, mixed chorus and girls chorus, and all presented fine performances. All of the 26 participating ganizations in the festival judged by Mr. Hall Crimson standards used in the State Washington, which is more or less the leader in school music in the Northwest, In judging music festi vals, schools are classified accord ing to enrollment much the same as they are classified in athletics Each school in a classification eligible for one of five ratings, not in competition for first, second or third place, in the festival, but as a grade for their own performance, based on certain standards, rather than comparison. After the judg ing during the day, seven of the top ranking groups were chosen to pre sent a balanced concert for the pub lic in the evening. The Libby Girl's chorus, which received a first division rating was presented in the evening concert. Other ratings were a first for the Libby band and a second for the mixed chorus. All groups were directed by Dean Vinal, high school music instructor. Both choral groups received an A in appearance, thanks to those who made the robes possible. Mrs. Paul Church accompanied the group to assist Mr. and Mrs. Vinal as chaperon. Plans are being made for a con cert of the band, girls chorus, and mixed chorus, to be held in the Junior High Auditorium next Thursday evening at 8.00 p. m. There will be no admission charge but a silver offering will be col lected for use by the music depart ment. This concert is being held to com memorate National Music Week, May 2-9, and promises to be a very good program. This will be the last formal concert of the year, so don't miss it. Later in May, it is planned by Mr. Vinal to hold an outdoor con cert or two in the school park. The dates for these will be announced next week.

The poppy movement got its ini petus from the poem ''In Flanders Fields" written by Colonel John McCrae of the Canadian forces be fore the United States entered the first World War. Immediately after the Armistice, the idea of selling replicas of the original Flanders' poppy took hold in some of the allied countries. No definite organized sale of pop pies on a nationwide scale was con ducted in America until 1921, when t h e Franco-American Children's League sold poppies ostensibly for , the benefit of children in the devas tated areas of France and Belgium. Madam Guerin, who was recog nized as "the Poppy lady from France," sought and received the cooperation of the Veterans of For wasjeien Wars of the U, S. early j 1922, after the Franco-American Children's League was dissolved, when the V. F. W. conducted a [poppy sale prior to Memorial Day, 1922, using only poppies that were made in France. In the 1923 poppy sale, due to the difficulty and delay in getting poppies from France, the V. F. W. made use of a surplus of French poppies that were on hand and the balance was provided by a ' firm of artificial flower manufac fulljturers in New York City. it was dur i n g the 1923 campaign ! that the V. F. W'. evolved the idea which resulted in the V. F. W Buddy Poppy—furnished dis in 1 abled and needy veterans who were ; paid for their work as a practical means of providing assistance for these comrades. This plan was for ( mally presented to the 1923 jeampment of the V. F. W. at Nor folk, Virginia, for adoption. Im ! mediately thereafter the V. F. W r . Buddy Poppy factory was estab lished in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, where all V. F. W, Buddy Poppies for the 1924 sale were made by disabled veterans. General Frank T. Hines, Director of the U. S. Vet eran's Bureau, endorsed Jhe plan and pledged the cooperation of his department. All men employed in the making of Buddy Poppies for the 1924 sale were sent to the VFW poppy workshop by the U, S. Vet erans' Bureau regional manager in Pittsburgh, The designation "Bud dy Poppy" which originated with, the men themselves, was adopted at that time.
