County News ent. During his tenure as superin-
AVarv Thursdav at l tendent our High school has steadily
every inureaay at I grown ^ attendance and proficiency
to the point of comparing favorably
with schools in towns and cities many
times the size of ours.
Not only have there been added
many credit units, but of the hundred
and fifty or more graduates who have
gone out from our school many of
them have entered the University and
colleges of the state, and not one of
them has ever failed to make good.
Some who were not fortunate to enter
college have gone into various lines
of business and industrial pursuits,
are making a success, and without
exception are Beckworth Boosters.
Aside from his school work, Mr.
Beckworth and his family have been
a valuable asset to our community. He
has always been depended upon to do
the right thing in - promoting the ad-
vancement of every good interest and
enterprise presented. Morally he i%
as near perfection as is possible for
one to be and retain human character-
istics; religiously, his precepts and ex-
amples are worthy of emulation; so-
cially, he is agreeable, but unassum-
ing; strong in character, and sympa-
thetic in his nature,
it is no wonder that our schools

have succeeded when we are reminded
of the co-operation he received from
his teachers, and the love and esteem
which was his from the student body,
almost without exception.
It is hot to be expected that the
love for him and the esteem in which
he is held by the people of the com-
munity shall be passed to his suc-
cessor; that can not be done, it is his
forever; but may we not hope that as
his mantle falls to the successor, he
may receive a double-portion of the
Beckworth 'spirit, and that he may
gain and retain the confidence, love
and admiration which has been Beck-
Worth’s through the years, for then,

Mrs. Ila Mae Seay, who has been
teaching a class in expression and dra-
matic art here through the school
year, brought her year’s work to a
successful close with the presentation
of her pupils in a very entertaining re-

Tuesday evening. Every number was
good, and as a whole the program was
an evening of entertainment which
would do credit to any teacher or class
Master Gwin Cook read “Mother’s
Hairpin,” Inez Montgomery, “Gimlet
vs. Corkscrew;” Naomi Featherling,
“The Girl Who Wouldn’t Like Boys;”

“Telephone,Doll,” from a high table;
Howard Featherling in blackface cos-
tume, read "Balky Mule;” Lily Wat-
son read "At the Theatre;” Leonard
Nisenson gave an impersonation of a
dago in "Humpy Jeem;” Madison Earl
Montgomery led his dog out and read,
‘Old Rover;” a pantomine, “Doctor

ison Earl Montgomery, with Barbara
Thompson as soloist; a gypsy dance,
with colorful costuming was given by
Mary Frances Foley, Naomi Feather-
ling, Inez Montgomery and Barbara
Thompson, and Habey Seay, with Miss
Thelma Vance as soloist.
The little people were attractively
dressed to suit their parts and were
sweet to look at besides rendering
their parts exceptionally well.
Advanced pupils who added ma-
terially to the delight of the program
were Miss Thelma. Vance, who read
"A Wedding Ceremony,” in which she
was “true to form,” and Miss Helen
Gerdes, who read "There, Little Girl,
Don’t Cry,” as Agnes Pauline Kunitz,
Lily Watson and Thelma Vance, rep-
resenting the weeping maiden in
"three ages of life,” came in to be
comforted; and “Old Fashioned Roses
