The pupils of the primary depart ment of the Westover School, assisted by Miss Cacey's pupils of the fifth grade, were heard at the High School hall last Wednesday night In a fairy operetta. Miss Howell was assisted by Mrs . Sherman Sutherland and Mrs. Harry Atkins directed th4 mu sic. The operetta is entitled a "Rose Dream" in two scenes, with the fol lowing cast: Fairy Queen .......

Little Hosebud. . ..... .Sarah Carter The Door Fairy Janet Upchurch The story of this bristling little musical fancy runs as follows: " Lltle Rose, who has wandered away from home and is lost, has fal len asleep. The fairies find her and the fairy queen designates Hop-o'- My-Thumb to guide her thru - the Land of the Lost and later to Fairy land, her kingdom. Little Rose, with a band of roses as her body guard, sees much to delight and" in terest her, including the fairies, the elves, etc. ' . - She appears in the second scene in Fairyland, where the lovely queen holds court. The twins, the elves and the fairies are all there, a stage full of little people in the most fan ciful costumes of fairyland, the elves with their hoods and horns and the fairies with their butterfly robes, all in a flutter to entertain Little Rose, who notwithstanding the court festi val, falls asleep. Hop-o'-My-Thumb takes a message to Little Rose's moth er that she , will find her daughter sleeping 'neath the. lilac tree in the park and the last chorus of the fairies, preparatory to taking flight, leaves Little Rose sleeping against the Fairy Throne, surrounded with drowsy at tendants. The little folks had been drilled and rehearsed until they were per fectly familiar with the lines and the music. The ; solos were delightful, but the moat remarkable feature of the evening was the singing of the chorus, which reverberated thru the hall, a harmonious crescendo of 'Ju venile voices. They sang like full- throated songsters as if the success of the whole school depended, upon them. The characters : were also highly pleasing and true to: form, and the entire evening's performance was decidedly a great success! "THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS. Cooper's famous story here.

Philippine Raiidant Commlulener Uaure Gabaldon CONGRESS HEARS DRAMATIC PLEA FROM FILIPINO Washington. "Must the heart of America beat only for the, free dom of Ireland, of Poland and of the Czecho - Slovaks, and not for the independence ct the Philippine Is lands?" This was the question Resident Commissi oner Isauro Gabaldon of the Philippines adressed directly to the ' member ship of the House of Representaives in a speecn wnicn was elven verr ciose attention and was frequently ap plauded. "At one-time," said Commissioner Gabaldon, "Congress had before it ao less than thirty resolutions expressing sympathy with the aspirations of the Irish people, if not actnaly nrglifg Eng- iana to grant independence to Ireland. At that time, also the Filipinos were knocking at your door. Out ef the womb of war, many European repub lics were born, and America has re joiced to uphold the same. And yet the claim of the Filipinos Is still un heeded. Must there be exceptions. then. In International Justice? -My plea,- gentlemen of the Ameri can Congress, Is that you Ignore ne longer the repeated requests ef a de serving people for an Independence that rightfully belongs to them. ' The granting of independence now affords the United States a golden opportunity to give to the world unanswerable proof of Its. sincerity, Its consistency and its altruism. It will be the great est example of square dealing in the history of the ages. "Do not tninK we are not appre ciative of all you have done for us. AVe are. America has truly treated the Filipino people as no other nation has evertreated an alien race In all history. The high points of the Amer ican policy in the Philippines have been consistently inspired by altruism, We know that you were actuated In your labors by the desire to contrib ute to our own welfare. - And we love you perhaps most of all for your solemn promise to grant us that which we hold dearer than life Itself our freedom. Independence is our national ideul. It Is our all ab sorbing aim. -It prows stronger every hour. . For the spirit of - nationalism never dies. Much less can It be sub dued. We believe that we can never hope to be a sturdy nation If we are to rely forever on the magnanimity of the United States. "America's task in , the Philippine Islands Is finished. ' What you have as sumed as your sacred obligation in that part of the world has been ful filled. A people with a medieval sys tem of Institutions has heen trans formed Into a conscious nation, Im bued with all that is modern in the activities ef nations. And if you give us independence our gratitude to -you will Increase a thousand fold; it will last forever if you keep faith with us. "There is but one Issue in the Phil ippine question, and that is: Is there today a stable government on the Is lands? In the Jones law you promised independence upon the establishment of such a stable government Tour own Governor-General has officially reported thst there Is a stable gov- ernment1n existence today, and we also have submitted plenty of evidence to substantiate its existence... There fore, we hope end expert America will now carry out Its pledge.".'- .
