Vernon once had a family so musical that people gathered on the sidewalk and! street in front of their house to listen when they sang. They were the children of A. C. and Mabel Pace Tanner, whose home was at 1202 Main. Three sisters and three brothers would break into song that sometimes would even stop motorists or people in surries and buggies on Main street. Most of the six had musical careers and at least two are still winning acclaim, according to their kinswoman. Miss Mabel Pavey. Latest honors for the Tanners came to Allen, New York concert pianist, whose album of a piano recital was praised in a New York Times review and featured by Schirmers in their New York music store window. All, born in Mt. Vernon in 1898, studied piano 15 years in Paris and other European cities. He overcame the handicap of a broken right hand, suffered in an automobile accident, to win recognition as an artist. Earl Tanner, youngest of the family, has retired from concert work and is now teaching in the Milwaukee conservatory. A tenor, he was featured several years on the Carnation radio hour and was a Chicago symphony soloist. On visits to Mt. Veraon he sang with the Presbyterian church choir as soloist when Miss Pavey was the choir director. Arnold, who sang with the family in the home chorus, went into business in Chicago, where he now lives. Florence, the oldest sister, nang on the stage and as soloist in St. Louis churches. She now lives in Chicago. Winifred (Winnie) had a beautiful voice, but never sang professionally. She lives in Chicago. Aline, the youngest, sang at the Chez Paree in Chicago and later became a secretary, now residing in San Francisco. The Times review says: "An album that is worth investigating by pianists, particularly younger ones, offers a recital by Allen Tanner (two disks Melos MLP 6001). Born in Southern Illinois in 1898, he studied in Chicago, New York and abroad and was an early expo- The words that have been spoken of late on the subject of private enterprise's public responsibility rival the Declaration of Independence in vigor and the Britannica in volume . . . The words have been spoken. It's time for action. —John D. ^Harper, president of Aluminum Co. of America. DEAR ABBY: I am a young man of 29. if you can call 29 "young." I have plenty of hair around my ears, and also in the hack, but I am very thin . on top. O. lot's face it. I'm . bald! I recently bought a wry ; natural looking hairpiece, and if j I say so myself, it improves I my looks 100 per cent. I get along finer at dinner parties i and shows, but what do I do; when I'm invited to go swim- 1 ming or boating with some of j my new friends who don't know \ I wear a rug? j And how about when I'm making out with a girl and she wants to run her fingers thru my hair? PHONY DEAR PHONY: You can fool some of the people some of the time, but they're usually the wrong people, so don't try to fool anybody. Tell your new friends you've got store-bought l locks, and.carry on accordingly, j | DEAR ABBY: I am 15 years ! old and my problem is that J I come from a long line of "profuse perspirers." In other words we are champion sweaters. My mother walks around the house all summer with a bath towel around her neck because she sweats so much. My married sister says when she goes anywhere to play canasta the hostess says, "Let's use the old cards, Ruthie gets them all wet anyway." My kid brother says he hates to hold a girl's hand in a movie because his is always so wet and clammy. And I take the prize. I have to put my hair up every night because my head sweats and the curl won't hold. Is there a cure for this, or are we all hopeless? MARCIA DEAR MARCIA: Perspiration apparently runs in your family. Sweat glands become overactive when the emotions are revved up. Talk to your doctor, he may be able to give you something to control it. If he can't, forget it. It may be something you will just have to sweat out. DEAR ABBY: My problem isn't a biy one but it irritates me to no end. After 12 years of marriage, my husband and I adopted a beautiful 4- month- old baby. Every time we tell someone he is adopted, they say "O, he's so sweet. How could his mother give him away?" Abby, I'm so tired of hearing this I could scream. What can we say? Sign me. .. IRRITATED DEAR IRRITATED: No really intelligent person would ever ask such a stupid question, and stupid questions don't deserve to be answered. But if you must say something, say "His mother giivo him away because she loved him as much as we do." DEAR ABBY: Aha, I knew if I followed your column long enough I would eventually catch you in a missatatement of fact. You said, "No man ever proposed to a woman when his feet hurt." Well, I did. On Christmas eve, 1935, I donned new clothes from head to foot for my date with Kathleen. My feet were killing me when I asked her to marry me. When she said yes, altbo I was walking on air, my feet still hurt. Now, 32 years and three grandsons later, the first thing I do when I come home at night is to take off my shoes. So Abby, if you would like to correct the record and print this, go ahead. And I won't object if you use my real name. Stan Morris, Van Nuys, Cal. everybody has a problem. What's yours? For a persoanl reply write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069 and enclose a stamped, self- addressed envelope. For Abby's New boo klet "What Teen- Agors Want To Know," Send $1.00 To Abby, box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069.

The recording, made recently when he was approaching his 70th birthday, offers playing that illustrates the old fashioned virtues. The emphasis is on beauty of tone, a singing melodic line, a natural rubato all of which are to be found applied with exceptional sensitivity- to pieces by Scriabin, Rachmani­ noff, Grandados, Liszt, Bach an Alexander Steinart. "A work that has been played too much and too carelessly, Debussy's Clair de Lune, is given a free performance that is neither sentimental nor flabby and it is extraordinaiTly poetic. In Liszt's Sonetto del Peta- rca 104, Tanner shows how to take a supporting bass line and turn it into an important counter- melody." Q—How is a day measured? A—From the time the sun crosses a meridian of longitude until it crosses that same meridian again. Thoughts for weight-watchers: smorgasbord makes yoif smor- gasbroad.
