Lois Elliott recently won second place and a silver medal in the high school student division of the third annual radio shorthand contest sponsored by the American Institute of Business in Des Moines. The contest, which included entrants from Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, Minnesota, Missouri, Wisconsin and South Dakota, was conducted April 8 over WOI, Ames.

Vesta Snethen began work Wednesday at the Zink Bakery as a replacement for Mildred Lamb.

DIAGONAL - "The Blue Bet," a fairy tale of Norway, was the grade operetta presented Tuesday evening.

STUDENT AYR - Lucille Lisle, Gertrude Mahan, Loren Elliott and Howard McNerney have been chosen as this year's representative seniors by the high school faculty. They were selected for the honor on the basis of scholarship, cooperation, character, personality, outside activities and general worth as school citizens and contributors to the good name of Mount Ayr High School.

Mount Ayr contestants Saturday won the commercial championship of the state. Competing against the best commercial squads in the state, winners of the eight district meets held in Iowa, Mount Ayr compiled a total of 23 points to lead Newton, the best school, by seven points. The students received the large state traveling trophy, two permanents fist place team cups, four medals and three ribbons. A first year student, Margaret Hudson, set the most outstanding record of any pupil in competition by taking a second place medal in typing work and then coming back to top 97 pupils in the shorthand division.
