I Shirley Doust aud Jane McKennan Placed Shirley Doust is another G. E. senior to sign her contract. Next year she will teach kindergarten at Manlius. Shirley comes from Syracuse and has been an active student at C. S. T. C. She is a member of Aquatic dub, Masquers, an A. C. E. officer, a member of Clio sorority, now being ~orority president, and a co- chairman of the Lyceum committee. She did her practice teaching at Tully and in the kindergarten on campus. She likes sports and says her ambition in life is to be a good teacher and a good wife. Making the sixth physical edumtion senior to sign a contract, jane Mci<ennan will teach next fall at Waterford, which is just north of Albany. \Mac\, who hails from Herkimer, is well known for her athletic ability. Here at Cortland she is especially known for her skiing and records show that she has re- ceived a prize every year in skiing co•npe- tition. She has played on just about all the class sport teams and is a member of the Aquatic club. \Mac\, herself, thinks golf is her best sport. In high school she won many prizes in golf competition. She also had the honor of being \Snow {juecn\ of Winter Carnival during her frosh year. \Mac\ is president of Arc.thusa and also heads the Interfraternity C{luncil. She has numerous hobbies, but her main one is a scrapbook in which she has collected pic- tures of the present world war from 1937 up to date. At Waterford, \Mac\ will be teaching physical education and hygiene to the third through twelfth grades. The Hilltop learned just before going to press that two more physical education seniors have signed contracts. These are Dorothy jorgensen of Pelham, who will teach at East Greenbush, and Robert Robinson of Newark, New Jersey, who will teach at Spencer. \A Word to the Wise-\ flr.

The artists, Helen Druke and Walter Shaw are both natives of the United States. Miss Druke was born in Salt Lake City where she received her early musical training and made her con- cert debut there after extensive travel and study in Europe. Mr. Shaw comes from Pittsburgh, where he displayed extraordi- nary talent before he was ten. Both hnvc had the good fortune to study pian() with Carl Friedberg, who rerognized the blending of pianistic tal- ents. All who attended the program enjoyed the new beauty of tone and quality. The artists were brought by the college lyceum committee.

During the past year Mrs. Wilkins has sung concerts on tours from coast to coast in United States, and into Canada to Nova Scotia and Quebec, and to points in the state of \Vashington, California and Texas. She was the first person to give a cono::-ert in St. joseph d'Alma in Northern Quebec Province on the Saguenay River. Among the larger cities where Mrs. Wilkins has sung concerts are Washington, D. C., Baltimore, Houston, Detroit, Ak· ron, Cindnnati, Seattle, San Antonio and Montreal. She will sing in Syracuse April 15. Travel ronditinns ! rcatl~· rom plicate the concert businf;!ss m wartime, and, in these journeys one takes many means of getting places that would not ordinarily be nere-ssary. Mrs. Wilkins says that she has traveled in everything but a rovered wagon, and has found herself in some very strange places between trains, but \the show must go on,\ and not a concert has been mis~cd or postponed. Mrs. Wilkins is a lyric-coloratura so· prano, a term whkh is not always under- stood. It means a voice that has the range and flexibility of a coloratura so- prano, with the quality and volume of a lyric soprano. These attributes open a vastly wider field of repertoire than is open to a rolora- tura alone or a lyric soprano al<>ne. It means that Mrs. Wilkins can do such col· oratura roles as Rosina in The Barber of Se\•ille, ()r Lucia eli Lammcrmoor, Gilda in RigoleUo, and also Marguerite in Faust and Mimi in La Boheme.
