THE DIXIE NEWS CLUB REPORTS DOINGS OF THE D.D. DS During the past few weeks members of the missionary club have played many roles and played them successfully. Since Feb. 6, they have staged a wedding, a chorus, and street meetings. In speaking of the street meetings many people express the opinion, that had they not been Mormons already, they surely would have been converted Sunday night by these ardent and convincing preachers, the missionary boys. The wedding was all that could be expected and was accurately staged before a large crowd. Rudger was portrayed as the brave, young bridegroom. The Missionary Club, (of which Rudger was a member before he turned benedict) presented a comedy entitled, A Wise Man Sometimes Changes His Mind. Andrew Baker played the role of the bride groom, Rudger Atkin, and was really more groomish than Rudger himself. His part was a heavy ( ?) one, but he interpreted wonderfully. His love scene was especially good. Lee Esplin, as the bride was simply exquisite and by his smiles and winning ways won the hearts of every one present. Wayne Gardner played the role of Gertrude McGregor in a most charming and adorable manner, his daintiness and grace were very fetching. Alvin Englestead as the proud and indulgent father was excellent, having just the right amount of paternal solici- TROOPS CELE- NORMAL DEPARTMENT ORGANIZES PLACEBRATE ANNIVERSARY WEEK MENT BUREAU SCOUT The Scout troops of St. George and vicinity celebrated the fifteenth anniversary with little display. The general program outinedby National Headquarters was carried out. The chief event of the week was the week-en- d hike by the St. George East and West ward roops. The boys left St. George rom the East W'ard troop house at 7 a. m., Feb. 14, and hiked over the black hill, east of town, o the banks of the Virgin River. Iere breakfast was the first thing in order. After the meal, the boys spent most of the morning exploring the hills looking ora few possible remnants of ndian pottery and arrow heads. No whole pieces of pottery were found, but the boys were fortunate in locating quite a number of arrow heads. Several pieces of petrified wood, remnants of an old tree, were also found. The feature of the hike was the midday contest. Each patrol vied with each other to see which could cook the best meal in the most efficient manner. The judges gave the decision to the Little Bear patrol of the West ward. The Big Bear patrol, of the West ward, won the cnot tying contest. The East ward troop won from the West ward troop in an exciting treasure hunt, the concluding event of the day. The feature good turn of the wreek wras the cleaning of some of the main streets of town by scouts of the East ward. At the suggestion of the executive secretary of the Utah Educational Association, .the Dixie normal department has organized a placement College jureau for teachers. The purpose of this bureau is the placing of the normal graduates in satisfactory teaching positions by the department itself. Heretofore, graduates have applied individually to the various superintendents of the state. This latter method has proved entirely unSuperintendents satisfactory. are not only annoyed by receiving wholesale quantities of applications from people of whom they know little or nothing, but joards of education and the pubic in general are given a wrong impression as to the number of teachers available and the as a whole suffers. Under the new plan, the prospective graduates will make application to the Placement Bureau. The bureau will then communicate directly with the superintendents of districts wherein the students desire to pro-essi- on teach. It is believed that the new plan will prove entirely satisfactory to all concerned.

Club at the present is taking up the history of some of our modern composers together with some of their famous selections. One of Bachs famous violin selections was played by Mr. Clark Higins, also one of Bachs famous piano selections was played by Miss Blanche Nelson at the club meeting Feb. 3. The Lyceum was especially appreciated by the members of the club, because they are studying the history and the compositions of these great composers whom these Great Artists represented. It is hoped that music pins can be obtained for each member of the club and much effort is being made to obtain desirable ones. ROTA BETAS The Rota Beta girls showed their enthusiasm and ability to show everyone a good time Saturday at the Gym. The Valentine color scheme was carried out so that everyone felt the dare of adventure neath the ribbons of white and red. Hearts were won, lost and many broken. And even the B. A. C. troop who were so royally treated by the Rota Betas, came close to the point of leaving their hearts in Dixie. DRAMATIC CLUB ENTERTAINS After the B. A. C. play One Night Only, the Rota Betas were hostesses at a valentine dance in the gym. Later the cast of Seventeen entertained the cast of One Night Only at the home of Miss Ruby Bryner. Supper was served, after which all formality was placed aside and much fun ex- tend in conference sincere congratulations for your splendid evidence of w'hat an Elder ought to have much good, sound, common sense by marrying. Some of us, meaning Perkins, Stucki, and Englestead, are living evidences of the joys of being wed; and Elder Pulsipher is thinking, so tis said, of marrying. Lee Esplin says hes certain, since he played the role of bride, that he'll not know contentment in this world so vast and wTide, untill he owns a bungle-she- d with wifey dear inside. Thats up-to-d- ate business President Jensen replied he would be right up with his car. Car loads lots are always acceptable provided they are the right kind of books. Some of the reference books and some fiction will forma useful addition to the library. We appreciate the patronage of townspeople in helping us to make our library the best possible.

A large and enthusiastic crowd greeted the performance. The comedy is one of unusual complications and odd situations. The parts were well cast, and the play was well rendered. Grant V. Twitched, as Spartan Spotts, did especially fine work. Ver-ven- e Naegle, as Mrs. Newman, and LaMar Lyman, as Paula, also gained particular favor from the audience. The Sophomore class of the Dixie College attended the play en masse. They entered the hall singing the Dixie Marching Song, and greeted the B. A. C. players with a few live yells. Their novel headgear created no little amusement. The Dixie College Dramatic Club will present Seventeen. at Cedar City on Feb. 27. ULTURE CHARACTER JIleanliness ZJ ONDUCT .
