WEST0VER SCHOOL ,
, IN FAERY OPERETTA
Little Folks Fairly Revel in Music
and Dialogue.
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 ....... Rebecca Atkins
The Giant Forgot . JM . .Thomas Lee
The Twins, Can and Can't,. V...
.Virginia Howell, Ruth Bransford
Hop-o'-My-Thumb . . Herman Lanier
Llttls Rbscs. .Dorothy Ann Allen,
Minnie Kaufman.
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!

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.".'- .
