CHORUS GIVES MON-DAH-MIN G-irls of Glee Clubs Present Indian Cantata in Assembly. Girls of the second and fourth hour glee clubs presented "Mon-dah-min" this morning in the assembly. The cantata, an Indian legend meaning "corn," was written by Paul Bliss. The second and fourth hour glee clubs are composed of unselected voices. "Mon-dah-min" is a story of the Ojibaa Indians, who in the early spring when the new corn was just beginning to show its fresh, green leaves above the ground, chose a fair maiden to walk in the field at night. During her nocturnal walk she was alone and no eyes could see her while she dragged a beautiful, beaded robe. The robe was superstitiously believed to give magic to the corn, to protect it from beetles and birds and to render a bountiful harvest to the sowers. Florence Fisher, a senior and member of the first hour glee club, sang the solo numbers. She has been active in previous musical presentations of the school having important parts in "The Lucky Jade" and "Pepita."

EAST HIGH HAS FINE LIBRARY NEEDING PUPILS' COOPERATION Only By Interest of Students Can It Hope to Become Outstanding in United States, Miss Ward, Librarian, Tells Reporter From The Spotlight. "The library of East High is a good library and it has the opportunity of becoming one of the outstanding ones in the United States," was the statement of Miss Louisa M. Ward, librarian at East to a Spotlight reporter last week. "This can be done only with the co operation of the students of East. The library is well housed, splendidly equipped and financed well enough to provide good books and trained librarians," asserted Miss Ward. "Yet there are definite things that are needed to bring it to the front ranks of school libraries." This year, for the first time in the history of the new East, the library has been open to any student who wishes to use books, without the bother of the signed slip system. As a result of this, many times during the day every chair is filled. "But," says MANUAL WEST STUDENTS TIE IN SHAFROTH CONTEST Gerald McCarthy, West High, and Jean Paul Mather, Manual Training, tied as winners in the Shafroth Extemporaneous Speaking Contest held in the auditorium at West High last Friday evening. Louise Wadsworth, North High, won in the girls' division. "The Citizen's Responsibility to Charity" was McCarthy's subject. Mather spoke on "Hoover's Farm Relief." Miss Wadsworth's subject was "Outlawry of War". East's representatives in the final contest were Lillian Saks, who spoke on "Social Life of the School", and Edward Riggs, who discussed "Why Should I Be Concerned About My Diet?" Twenty-two seniors have been added to the membership of the National Honor Society. They are Mary Angel, Marie Bayne, Dorothy Canby, Lenore Hays, Ruamie Hill, Dorothy Howe, Lucille Ilgaudas, Harriet Menzel, Opal Murray, Mary Jane Schock, Doris Wil- kerson, Leo Block. Robert Card, William Carlton, Bob Lewis. Robert Moore, Pete Nagel, Robert Osborn, Donald Roper, David Swift, George Sver and Gayle Weller. '"Because membership to this society is limited, the committee could not include all desirable people in this selection," said Miss Anita Kolbe, sponsor of the society. Only 10 per cent of the senior class may belong. More members will be admitted in May. In choosing people for membership in the National Honor Society, character, scholarship, leadership and service are taken into consideration. Yearbook Seeking Pupils' Snapshots The Angelus wants clear photographs of well known and good citizens about school. It need not be a humorous picture but one appealing to anyone. They do not want baby pictures. If the pictures are not suitable they will be returned. Place your name and home room on the back of the photograph. A box will be located outside the oflice to receive the pictures. PAPER SPONSOR LEAVESSCH00L Mrs. K. F. Hoffman Resigns After Six Years at East. Again East has learned that another of her amiable instructors has left her. Mrs. Kathrine F. Hoffman greatly surprised East students and teachers when it was known that she had resigned and would not be back after the Christmas holidays. Mrs. Hoffman was an instructor in Miss Ward, "we need more chairs. In the course of the years many of them have been broken. For this reason The librarians spend much time wandering about the library asking one- hundred-and-eighty-pound youths not to lean back in the chairs. When the chairs break, as they easily do, it is hard on the library and just about as bad on the youths." The best available equipment has been obtained to fit out the library in the catalog, files and shelves. The catalog is not only of good workmanship but the cards in it form an accurate index to resources of the library. East is fortunate in having one of the few high school libraries in the city that has a complete catalog of all its books. "Because the library is being used so much this year, we must be especially careful that no one comes in who does not really want to use the library books, either for class work or for outside reading. We have barely enough room for those who are using rhe library books for reference work, so students who are not are asked to study in their study halls." Mrs. Hoffman English and history for six years at East, and after John R. Albright had resigned to practice law in May, 1928, Mrs. Hoffman was chosen faculty adviser of The Spotlight. She held this position for three years until her resignation. While Mrs. Hoffman sponsored the publication, it won a first class honor rating in the National Newspaper contest of the National School Press Association at the University of Minnesota in 1929. An all-American honor rating was given to The Spotlight in 1930 in the tenth annual newspaper contest of National Scholastic Press Association at the University of Minnesota. Before coming to East Mrs. Hoffman taught at the Wolcott school. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree at Northwestern University and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. RHODES HONOR IS GIVEN EAST GRAD George Carlson. '27, is the newly chosen representative from Colorado for the Rhodes Scholarship. He is a senior at University of Colorado and a member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. Carlson won the honor cup in his last year at East and was the senior class president. He won his letter in football and was a member of Congress Debating Society for three years. Also he was an outstanding member of local and national honor societies. At the state university his record has been equally outstanding. The Rhodes Scholarship was established by Sir Cecil Rhodes, wealthy English land and mine owner. Deserving young men of English colonies, of T aited States and of Germany are paid the equivalent of about $1500 yearly to attend Oxford college in England. Two boys from each of the states in America are chosen every three years. The requirements of the scholarship are precisely those of the honor cup awarded at East: scholarship, leadership, school spirit, personality and activity participation. CAVIS HAM IS CHOSEN TO EDIT 1931 YEARBOOK DAVID SWIFT WILL DIRECT FINANCE END NEW HANDBOOKS READY FOR lOB'S The new edition of the Angels' guide was recently made in order that every sophomore in the building will be sure to have one. It is practically the same as previously except for a few minor revisions. The books were printed in the printing shop by John Cullyford and Frank Patton, sophomores, under the supervision of Fred L. Rinne. The book was set up by linotype machines at a commercial printing shop but the actual printing was done in East's printing shop. The books were taken to the Denver Public Schools press to be bound. The color of the cover was changed from gray to brown. A complete revision of the book will be made in the near future. The guides will be taken to the various junior high schools where they will be distributed to the graduating classes. On their arrival at East a program will be given for them and the Angels guide will be formally presented.
