Doanc College a Cappella Choir.
Weeping Water people had the
rare privilege Wednesday evening of
hearing the Doane College a cappella

iences. Unfortunately the weather
man's prediction for snow came true.
The landscape was beautiful with
snow laden shrubbery and trees, but
streets were sloppy and highways
bad for driving. However these young
people are undaunted by weather
conditions, rather they seem to wel
come them as obstacles to be over
come by giving of their best. The
college messengers sent out from the
oclleges to sing their way into the
hearts of the people are always a
source of inspiration and pleasure.
