Mount Ayr Record-News
Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa
Thursday, January 30, 1941

by Chanse Hall, Mount Ayr Record-News

Alumni of the Mount Ayr High School yesterday were expressing their objections to the new song introduced recently in the school and to the public at a basketball game. The music was writen by John E. Weland, band instructor, and the words by Supt. W. H. McFarland. The petition, addressed to Mr. McFarland, reads as follows: "We, the sundersigned alumni and students of the Mount Ayr High School, with a grieving and heavy heart, watching the evident passing of a beautiful tradition, respectfull urge that 'March Forever On', with its lilting melody, the undying sentiment of its stirring and uplifting lyrics and its age old appeal, be reinstated as our school song."

Maurice Armstrong, formerly employed by the Irving Clothing Store, has accepted a position as salesman for the Timby Motor Company and began work Monday.

Friends of Mrs. X. T. Prentis will be happy to learn that she has been elected corresponding secretary of the Iowa Legislative Ladies' League.

The fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades of the Mount Ayr school will present and adaption of the opera, "Hansel and Gretel," on February 17. The operetta carries a cast and chorus of sixty-five, starring Helen Williams as Gretel and Curtis Barnett as Hansel. Loyd Hudson portrays the father; Harriet Smith, the mother, and Rose Marie Morris, the Cookie Witch.
