That a great deal of ihterest is

was manifested last night J Although m
there were two weddings in the city. l'!
which were largely at! -ed, the Nor- i'e
mal Auditorium was nirnost packed 'n
with people. The exercise last night s"
was a contest for pti -GS. Seven
young ladies participated and their ef- re
forts showed hard work in prepara- is
tion. at
The program opened with a baritone at
soio by Lloyd Boggess. Mr. Boggess as
has not appeared often to Fairmont ju
audiences, and is not very well known, ot
but judging from his work last evening,
he will be called forth often. So B

times he appeared. He has many ti
qualities of the successful vocalist, h
The harmonious piano accompaniment
by .Miss Maxwell, instructors music u
at the Normal, added greatly to the" s
singing. w
Miss Stella AYoofter. who was re- ?
niembered as giving a recitation Mon- A
day evening on the Third Year Class s
program, opened the contest with t
"The Legend of the Organ Builder." I
It is a well written selection, and s
was rendered in a pleasing manner. t
Miss Georgia- Straight'came next i
with "How Peggy Held the Port." ?
Miss Srtaight is well known in this i
city, but has not appeared as a reader 1
until now?-' She did her work well and s

The contest was ended by "Star

Although quite young, she reted
well, and caused the others to
enable lest the prize should fall to

When the judges retired to make
p their decision, there was much
peculation as to who the winners
