Capsule Editorial Just a word to mention how very much our family enjoyed the final home basketball game, Tuesday evening. It brought to mind with great clarity how very much the school means to our community---how much more often we should attend school activities. Tuesday night saw a scrapping game with Goodhue, rough only because the boys were trying so hard. It saw a band which has improved unbelievably since I heard it last----even “The Star-Spangled Banner,” a toughie, sounded professional. Little Judy Ehlers gave a charming baton whirling exhibition---and the enthusiasm of the crowd was contagious. Congratulations to Supt. Eimermann, Coaches Walt Ayotte and Tom Klein, and Harry Prouty for a most vivid example of what the school means to us.
15 Acts Scheduled for Polio Benefit There is a grand total of 15 acts now scheduled to appear at the BIG March of Dimes variety show at the high school auditorium Friday evening, February 4. The curtains will go up at 8:30. Latest gal to enter the show is Miss Arlene Rogers of Minneapolis, who will sing popular songs. She is reported en route to New York, but will do this show first. Also not mentioned last week were three Zumbrota girls, Aurilla Klug, Joanne Hoven and Ann Yunggen, who will do a tap routine, and a family skit with local talent. The local cast is rehearsing like mad and rounding up costumes. All expectations are for a large crowd for the widely-publicized affair. See you there.
