1,500 STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN MAY FETE.
Approximately 1,500 McKinney public school children tripped lightly on the greensward of Newsome field Monday night under the floodlights to inaugurate in grand style the first high school May Fete. ..... The Fete, inauguarated and sponsored by Prof. Jack R. RYAN, city superintendent of the public schools and the efficient corps of McKinney Public School Teachers aided by the parents was carried out to perfection. Much credit rightfully goes to the directors, Miss Carrie Jean DAVIS and Mrs. Paula FINCH, who worked faithfully getting in readiness the gigantic production.
Chief interest centered in the beautiful ceremony, in which Miss Catie CUNDIFF, of Allen, a member of the High Senior class, was crowned Queen. She was escorted to the beautiful stage in the center of the field. Miss Janet MILLER, one of the city’s most gifted vocalists, sang a beautiful vocal number.
Two heralds – Aubrey HAMILTON and Frank W. SMITH – nattily dressed, marched out and took their places on the stage, announcing the different events. The heralds announced that Mother Nature’s children would be introduced in groups, each representing a certain month in the year as follows: January – Snow Flakes and Snow Balls by J. H. Hill (Central) Ward school; February – Minuet, L. A. Scott Junior High School; March – Irish dance, Boyd Senior High School; April – Japanese dance, J. W. Webb (East) Ward school; May – Roses and Butterflies, J. L. Greer (North) Ward school; June – Poppies, daises and bees, Fanny Finch (South) Ward school; July – Sunbonnet and Overall dance, J. H. Hill (Central) Ward school; August – Fairies and brownies, Fanny Finch (South) Ward school; September – Autumn leaves and breezes, J. L. Greer (North) Ward school; October – Indian dance, L. A. Scott Junior High School; November – Boy Scouts and Red Cross drill; December – Sleigh bell dance, J. W. Webb (East) Ward school.
The Queen was immediately preceded by three pages – Kenneth PATTERSON, Forest WELMAKER, and Henry MYRICK. The trainbearers were little Misses Ruby Lynn SLAUGHTER and Frances Ann McCASLAND. Don Weaver DAVIS was crown-bearer and little Jimmie ROLLINS carried the scepter.
The musical features of the program were presented by the High School orchestra directed by Prof. Ralph E. FRAZIER; the high school Glee club, directed by Miss Lillian RICKMAN, and the Harmonica band, directed by Miss Venita MORROW, these three units marching on the field and taking their places near the stage where they rendered delightful music at intervals during the evening program.
May Fete accompanists were: Mrs. Ross ORENDUFF, Miss Mary Katherine SNIDER, and Miss Eugenia DOWDY.
Princesses, duchesses and maids of honor to the Queen and their escorts were: Evelyn KUYKENDALL, John Allen DYER; Dorothy HACKNEY, Alfred ALLEN; Katherine HAYNES, Hubert EVANS; Ethelene GAMBLE, Leon SHIPMAN; Alga Mae BAUGH, Roy BROCKMAN; Martha Nan EDWARDS, James TARVIN; Imogene WHEATLEY, Harry Green; Dorothy Lynn SEARS, Otis BURKE; Margaret STEVENS, A.
