Schubert. Club
to Give Annual
(_loncert Dec. 21st
o
Singers to Give Third
Benefit for Crippled
Kiddies
Tuesday evening. December 213:,
hasbeensetasthedateofthe
Schubert Club’s Christmas Concert.
This well-known singing organiza
tion is now in its sixth season, and
under the able direction of E. A.
McDowell of the high school faculty;
is aiming for new heights in musical
performance. .
The concert will be given as usual
in the Methodist church auditorium
and the proceeds of an offering to
be’taken will be for the Orthopedic
Hospital in Seattle. This season’s
affair is the third of this type pro—
gram to be presented.
As a special treat, the club hopes
to have Homer Siegfried, tenor, for
merly of this city, to appear as guest
soloist, and 'Mrs. Siegfried, former
director of the club, to appear with
him for one number.’ Mr.-Siegfried
is in this territory at frequent inter
vals in his business and hopes to
arrange his itinerary so that he will
be here for the concert.
Mr. McDowell has chosen a dif
ferent type music for this year’s
performance, in which the contra
puntal and madrigal type will pre
dominate. This music is particular
ly difficult for the amateur singer
and is requiring four rehearsals each
week until concert time, but will,
produce a type composition best;
presented by singing groups of the‘
type of the Schubert Club. The bril
liant “Hymn to Raphael the Divine”|
by Rossi, will be outstanding in re-1
ligioustype andwillbesunginltal-‘
ian, while the other extreme will be‘
in the rollicking ‘Wassail Song,” a‘
madrigal telling the story of towns-1
people of the old country making
their carolling visits on Christmas
eve. There will be included in the
program several of the well-known
Christmas carols, and the program
will be closed with the inspiring
“Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s
Messiah. All chorus members will
be robed, and the candle-lighted
processional and recessional hymns
will open and close the concert.
New Features to
Be Demonstrated
in Game Friday
The senior basketball team will
blossom out in all new play suits
and warm ups at the game which is
scheduled to be played on the local
gym floor with Toppenish this Fri
day evening, December 10. The suits
are of a solid orange color and the
warm ups are of a solid black.
These suits will make the local boys
the best dressed team in the val
ley.
The starting line-up of the gamei
Friday will probably be as follows:‘
Campbell, Yedica, Reymore, Smalley‘
and either Michner or Doyle. The}
Toppenish team is made up a large
part of the players that competed in;
the Yakima 'valley tournament last
year. There will be special features
at the Friday game, the one being
that the rapidly progressing pep
band under the capable leadership
of E. A. McDowell will furnish the
music and the Owls, or senior boys

willputonastuntlnbetween
halves. The main feature of the
game, however, will he the fact that
the boys will play under the new
rules which allows no center Jump.
except at the beginning of each
half, which makes the game faster
than those played previously. Har
ry Benson of Finley-Hover and Tam
Deering of Walla Walla will be the
officials.
On Saturday night the players‘
will go to Milton to play Mac Hlßll.l
Thi s team finished in second place
in the Oregon tournament last year.‘
Coach 'l'. A. Brim states that if
the team makes a good showing in
these two games, it will give some
idea of the strength of this year's
team. There are very few veterans
this year, but the team seems to be
progressing rapidly and if they get
their eye to the basket they should
be a strong contender to the league.
The school authorities, in order to
develop a greater interest in school
activities have reduced the 11de
sion prices to the games this year.

K.H.S. Students
Repay Loan for
Athletic Field
Project One of Best in
State and Now Valued
at $3500 at Least
The unusual has happened again.
In October. 1933, the KHS stu
dent body borrowed 3350 from bus
inessmen along the street to help
finance the new playfield at the
school house. The money was to be
repaid, and two years ago the stu-1
dent body, which had the project in
charge, managed to pass out checks
for half of the amount borrowed.
Today the other half of the borrow
ed money was returned.
The money was used to grade and
sad and fence the playfield as well
as to install the cinder track, plant
the trees and erect the bleachers.
Supt. Black estimates that the value
of the plant is at least $3500 at the
present time.
The athletic field gives Kenne
wick one of the best equipped fields
1n the eastern Washington section
and places the town in the top rank
among the smaller schools in this
respect. .
Management of the field is under
the direction of the Student body
which reported a net profit this
year of better than S2OO.
