OF m.rroiiY ,1 ;.:•".:iv::3 JL:.i:o l r ), I- 1 . 1 :A 19 DECEMBER 1957 thru the week with the editor Christmas is rushing madl; us. but isn't it all fun. We even forgive the almo:-l m;\ ranled commercili/.ation in light of some of the fun and joymerif and genuine good we note from day to day in.-piied. of course, bv the appmarhni" day. tlw Always about this year is the annual Garb, Game dinner. And this was excellent, in true Gai hi e tradition, as usual. Antelope, coon, turtle soup, squirrel, spar row pot pie (that's right, it \vas HKAIj sparrow, and good, too). venison. Fayette's own Terry Mullins caught the beaver while much of the meat was provided by area people who attended, ttw Knowing full-well liiat the Donnell family, related to the Hath's, almost command the giant Hath Packing Company. I asked A. IX Donnell, v. ho attend ed the dinner, what he did at the I"fath Packing Company "for use in our paper". His answer: "I'm the President." So. another faux pas. ttw I went to high school at Hast High in Waterloo wilh his s<m. Jim, and other son John, was at the Legislature several times, but. how was I to know what the Dad did? ttw Dave Archie, publisher of the Iowa maga/inc was there and enjoyed himself. For those of you who read the IOWAN, bo sure to .see the feature on the wild game dinner. It's interesting and very well done. It behooves every local citizen to read the story of this relatively new annual even 1 , in Fayette society. ttw Back to Christmas. The annual party at the collide was held Thursday eve. Mrs. Editor was presented with the Josephine Borchert award for Uxorial Fidelity in the light of sacrificing her career for an "ambitious and domineering husband.' Everyone knows I'm not ambitious; I just work all night because I can't sleep. tlw In Ihe major address of the evening Dr. Hendrix lold about eating at a place where they give monogrammcd napkins. At least, 'he reports, he thought his was monogrammod—until it crawled away. ttw Among our most beautiful Christmas cards this year is one from Bob and Shirley Carson of Independence (Bob is State Rep. from Buchanan and Majority Leader of the House.) They made a trip around the world last summer and obviously boughl their Christmas cards abroad. tlw Anyway,, inside were pressed flowers wilh Ihe words below them: Flowers from the Holy Land. On the back the lettering, Made in Jerusalem. A truly beauliful piece. ttw Also, on cards, one from Mr. and Mrs. Louie Ilalverson, whom many of you know with thc address; Mr. and Mrs. DLK and ?. tlw I was in Chicago lasl Sunday visiting with some of my good '.Hebrew friends there, the Schustoffs. Mr. *;* "'« his cards with a big MERRY CHRISTMAS with a large six- pointed star of David below it His wife didn't know about it until he showed her and he was severely reprimanded, she thinking H would offend his Christian friends. To which he replied, "Oh" this is just for certain ones who'll understand." FAYETTE, IOWA Price Five Cents VOLUME 42, NO. 25 VOCAL MUSIC NEWS CHAMBER OF COMMERC SPONSORS FREE TURKEYS „. .

A near capacity audience was rewarded by an especially fine production 01 tin- niagnificaiit score, in this annual Christmas event. t ne chorus of 72 people was drawn not only from the members ol tlie UIU student body and the Fayette community but from towns as far as 70 miles away. It proved to be rich and well balanced, particularly in the familiar "Surely He Hath Borne Our Grids". HacheJ Van Clove's soprano Milns showed ample evidence of her many professional appearances before she joined the Upper Iowa faculty and "Shepherds Aoiuing In Tin 1 Field' found her in complete command of the music. In the tenor solos Ted Zeran gave each the full benefit of his vibrant voice. Hussell Elliott's several bass solos were excellently done, especially "Behold, I Ti 11 You A Mystery", which was enhanced by the trumpet played by Mmdfurd Sill. Both Elliott and Xcran are well known performers m tin. Fayuttt! area and will be remembered for Iheir appearance in the "Mikado" among others. Another familiar figure was Walter Farwell, Fayetle Community School vocal instructor, who sang "Why Do The Nations So Furiously Uugi??" with feeling. William Davis has a rich bass voice that seems always perfectly under control and he showed a capability tor fine shadings. One ol tin. 1 most pleasant surprise's of the evening was the rich contralto voice of LeRayne Hurcl of Maynard, whose performance retained its scope without sacri- licing mobility. The entire performance was beautifully iii'd together by the able and sensitive accompaniment of Professor Robert Keyton at the organ. Tin? "Messiah" has come to have special significance at Christmas to this community as well as to many others. The story work is sung or. various occasions of Christ set to music, Handel's throughout the year, but the oratorio, especially the "Hallelujah" chorus expresses to Christians throughout the world the full meaning of the Christmas season.
