of this city, was repeated last even
ing at the school building before an
audience that filled the auditorium of
the building to its utmost capacity.
The little folks who took part in

able talent for their years ana the
Sisters of the school, as well as the
others who assisted in their training
certainly were very successful in ar
ranging the pleasant event.
The "Daisy Drill" by the little
girls and the "Dolly Song" by these
same little ladies were received with
the most marked approval, while the
dancing number of the old fashioned
dance of Grandma's days by six of
the smaller boys and girls, was the
big hit of the evening and heartily
encored by the delighted audience.

per," Catherine Flynn, Teresa Liber
shal and Mary Schlater divided hon
ors in the dramatic portion of the
play with Louise Fogarty, Eleanor

offering, "A Grain of Salt." were very
entertaining and kept everyone in a
laugh over the troubles of "Dr.
Curem." William McCarthy and John
Uhlik being cast in the leading roles.
The two entertainments were very
pleasing throughout and the little
folks who participated can feel that
they have given a most fitting close
to the year of school activities.
