Athletic Association is Formed.
Last Tuesday the Athletic Associa
tion of the Union City Training School
was formed by the student body in the
morning session. The following elec
tions took place:
Bob Marshall, pres.; Dick Honeycutt,
vice-pres.; John Waddell, secretary
and treasurer; F. C. Aydelott, mana
ger; Jacob Harris, assistant manager;
Carl Key, captain of the football team
for 1909.
After the election the president took
enlarge of the meeting and formulated
the regular order of business. The
membership of the body was larger this
year than it ever has been in the whole
history of the school, and the enthusi
asm manifested on the occasion prom
ises to add greatly to the life of the in
stitution. The secretary reports more
than forty names a list which will be
added to as the months roll around.
As stated above Karl Key has again
been elected to lead the Knights of the
Pig-Skin to their fate and that the park
will soon be the scene of spirit-stirring
action is plain. Manager Aydelott re
peated to-day that it is his intention to
start an early practice and dispatch or
ders for the necessary team equippage
at once. He is also of the opinion, af
ter taking a caucus of the lusty mate
rial on hand, that the school will do
work in this particular- line on a pre
miere classe order.
At the above election a captain of the
baseball team was not-selected nor will
be for some time yet. It is extremely
probable, however, that this honor will
be tendered Stevie Camthers, who ex
hibited such a sensational aptitude with
the Grays last season.

tion from Frederick Schleider, Carnegie

town, feel very proud of her and were
delimited to hear her in one of her r?-
citalt -
the rendition of her Chopin numbers
She is a favorite with Hickman au
diences and was greeted ehusiastically
when she appeared for her. first number
and was encored many times.
She is a brilliant player and' performs
with an intelligent understanding of the
contents of the composition; always
technically sure of herself and is pos
sessed of a temperament that enables
her to deeply impress an audience.
Her vocal numbers were sung with
beauty of phrasing and breadth of tone.
She has an excellent tone of sympathet

able accompanist. She is especially

Carnegie Hall immediately upon her
return to New York, where a busy sea
son awaits her. Hickman Courier.
