Mr. Priestly has been unable to se- cure a piano for practice, but has de- cided to use the piano at the grammar school until something better is ar- ranged. The only approach to a glee club last year was a chorous of boys who were instructed by Mrs. Brown. They sang at commencement, and judging by the way they were received after three weeks of her untiring practice, glee club will be an added attraction, with months of practice, at plays and various programs given by the high school.
