The Juniors really did give a pro

They got right up on' the stage and
said things and sung things and then
read more things. Anybody would
have known them to be Juniors. No
body else would have the face to
wear such remarkable garb. Many
of the tortured spectators thought
that some circus had strolled into
town and loaned the High School
their animal exhibit. Nothing was
missing but the cages.

City Wrested From Turks
Saloniki, March 18. King George
of Greece was assassinated while
walking in the streets of Saloniki this
afternoon. The assassin was a Greek
of low mental type, who gave his
name as Aleke Schinas. He shot the
King through the heart.
The King was accompanied only by
an aid-de-camp, Lieut. Col. Fran-
coudis. The assassin came suddenly
at the King and fired one shot from a
