SIOUX: (Special Correspondence)

Both the debating and spelling gold medals were on exhibition at Sunnyside
Friday afternoon. The second debating medal will be the same design as the
first except in silver.

The midway entertainment given by the Sunnyside high school boys Saturday evening was a grand success with a lot of fun. About $30 was taken in for the benefit of the school.

The boys’ Midway drew a good crowd and some thirty dollars were gathered in
as a result of their efforts. The Kangaroo Court, shooting gallery, “nigger”
babies properly (or improperly) paired off, the animal show were the main
attractions aside from the eats which brought good prices.

In the last of the preliminary debates at Sunnyside Friday afternoon, Melvin
Kanago and Marie Kruse scored first and second. The list fro the semi-finals
now stands: Keith Knapp and Mabel Hunter against Francis Hancock and Lee
Struble; Vance Hunter and Ralph Hathaway against Melvin Kanago and Maries
Kruse. Lee Struble takes the place of Albert Burkett, who withdrew on
account of too heavy work.
