It would seem that it might have been pre-arranged inasmuch as she stated the most important duty of a citizen was to vote, and we have been experiencing some difficulty in getting students to vote on subjects that are, or will be, of vital interest to them. The Normal Orchestra gave several pleasing selections, after which an announcement of the Armistice Day program Was made by Mr. Koopman Earl Brooks spent a very pleasanl vacation' a few miles south of Mt.

MUNSON Music lovers of the city spent a pleasant two hours Tuesday evening' listening to the entertainment provided by the National Quartet, the third number on the Normal Lecjtute and Music Course. The quartet was made up of Lawrence Wickland, first tenor; Stanley Graham, second tenor and accompanist; Mauna Ivins, baritone; and H. C. Cox, bass. The voice work of the men was exceptionally good and the impersonations ' and interpretations clever. The principal fun maker of the quartet was, the bass, H. C. Cox, who had a gootL time himself entertaining his" audience- The program gLveni by; the quartet members was a varied one. The1 opening number was "In the Storm) in the Night on the Sea," sung with; expression and feeling. This was followed by an anthem from Eccle- siastes, and then came a reading of Robert Service's poem from "Rhymes of a Red Cross Man" called "The Wee Whistle of Sandy MeGra>v" which was read and interpreted by H. C. Cox in a realistic Scotch manner. Responding to repeated applause, Mr. Cox gave after the ap-* proved negro style another reading. —this one a poem by Paul Lawrence * Dunbar, noted Southern poet, called' ^»" tfo-mi Tucked away unobtrusively in the columns of some of the state papers last week was the announcement of an engagement that came as a pleasant surprise to Central Normalites who recognized in one of the principal figures venturing into the matrimonial unknown, John M. Munson, superintendent of the Training School of the Central Normal, editor of Moderator-Topics, and a prominent schoolman interested in all affairs of education. The announcement as set forth in the Detroit Journal read as follows- "Mrs. Martha Treleaven announces the engagement of her daughter, Marian, to John Munson. Miss Treleaven is at present studying voice with great success in Chicago. Mr. Munson served for many years as Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction. The wedding date has not as yet been determined." "Central Normal Life" joins with the many friends of Miss Treleaven and Mr. Munson in extending heartiest congratulations- -•l\l&2*-" GIRLS' SOCIAL LEAGUE PRESENT CxIFT Two beautiful silver teapots have been on exhibition in Miss Ronan's office in Normal Hall. They are the gift of the members of the Girls' Social League of 1921 to the Women's Commons. The girls of the League wished to leave a memento of their good times and decided to provide the teapots. Heretofore when a tea was held in the Commons it was necessary to borrow the teapots from the Cafeteria. This will no longer be necessary. Upon each silver teapot is inscribed G. S- L. 1921. The beautiful gift has excited the admiration of students and faculty who join in thanking the members of the League. followed, by the entire quartet, "Swing Along" and "I Don't," both sung with excellent harmony. Mr. Graham contributed a beautiul piano solo, "Caprice" and an encore- "Lazy Land" by the quartet made a decided hit. The entire audience was gaping sleepily after this song interpretation. "Baby Brother" brought forth more laughter and applause. A number greatly appreciated was De Bussy's "The Fisherman," a duet sung byi Messrs. Wickland and Ivins. After an encore graciously given ny Mr. Wickland and Mr- Ivins, the quartet sang with feeling Vander- water's "Sunset" and Herman Lowell's "Where My Caravan Has Rested." Mr. Cox again won the hearts of his audience with a funny negro interpretation of Bert William's "It's Yuh Move Now" and an impersonation of Harry Lauder. Mr. Cox, attired in kilties, sang "Roamin' in the Gl.oamin'," one of the "avor- ite songs of Mr. Lauder. His impersonation of the Scotch singer was very well done and earned him repeated applause. He also gave "My Girl Irene," accompanying himself on the piano and creating much amusement with his comedy. Mr- Wickland sung two beautiful solos that struck a more serious note, and then followed two more funny skits by the group—one a negro camp meeting scene and the other the 'Quartet from Rigoletto," with the singers' own interpretation. Both produced, much laughter. The camp meeting took the audience by storm. The closing number was "Lead Kindly Light." The next number on the Lecture Course will be December 12. At that time Davis, the noted magician, is expected to entertain here. Miss Helen A^r Senston, who is private tutor for the "Clever Kiddies" at the Broadway Theatre, was a campus visitor Wednesday afternoon. Miss Senston is a graduate of Northern State Normal. President Warriner recently attended a meeting of the Michigan Teachers' Retirement Fund Board at Lansing. Mr, Warriner was -elected president of this organization, for the current year. . *i I ' * 2 i ♦ ■ . i c 1 I A k ]' ; ! f i 1 ^ l • i 'i ' ) .'t m 11 j f « h 1 Xv • i V j ,. I i a ft i .
