r~?T. OF !!T"TcrY 5. ..,•,;; ••.(U.\;^ iv, I'.)/. VOLUME 42, NO. 41 thru the week with the editor Now, that the Easter Bunny, Peter Cottontail and others have returned to their domain until next Spring, we can get into other things. ttw Well, enough gentle sarcasm. We guess its kind of like Christmas. ttw We are happy to welcome Mr. Ralph Welch to our area. He was in to subscribe to the LEADER a couple of weeks ago. We hope you folk will get acquainted with him. He farms near here, now. ttw We took li'l Dayna to church for the first time Sunday. She liked .the music and didn't cry until it stopped. ttw Joe Wright, who sat 'behind us with his little boy, warned us, as we now know, that you can't wear dark blue suits and handle babies with flannel blankets. ttw Did you hear Bob Hope last week? 1 didn't but my Uncle Kenny, a detective in Waterloo did. (Everyone in the family has TV but us.) Anyway, he reports that Bob Hope reporting on Presley says, "I believe the army will get a fair shake." Catch? A fair shake? ttw My Grandpa reports that Lee Sheeley of Fayette used to play ball with him. He says Lee was quite a good pitcher. That was back in 1915. ttw Grand-dad says, however, Lee '^walked me five times in one game." ttw He also says that "Doc Dorman, who was coach" when the EDITOR'S GRANDFATHER WAS ON HIS TEAM, "thought the team of Higby, Walgamont and Finch (the family name till Kimball got it) was the best team he (Doc D.) ever had." ttw Only one regret from last Thursday's Fayette betterment committee meeting. And that is, that we lid not get more of Lois D's clever jokes on record for this column. Like we said to Ott Finger at the time, "Why did I forget me pen, I've got to get these things down for my column." ttw Oliver Troupe Candidate For Supervisor Oliver- W.

KANSAS CITY CHOIR AT UPPER IOWA By Ethel Gillette FAYETTE — A capacity crowd received lull measure of satisfaction fro mithe music of the Kansas City Choir as it performed in Upper Iowa's Colgrove- Walker Building at Fayette last Tuesday. Dr. W. Everett Hendricks, as a former member of the Upper Iowa faculty, was already assured of a warm personal welcome from his many friends in -this area, and the 54 voice Choir will be remembered as well for their enriching performance In each number the choir displayed the balanced fullness and attention to detail that have brought them a well-deserved nationwide reputation. Dr. Hendricks played upon the voices of the choir like «he fine instrument The simple tout effective sittings and the lighting added an almost mystic atmosphere to the first group of numbers. Two Gregorian Chants, from about 200 A. D. were separated by Heinrich Schutz's I am the Resur- redion. The first Gregorian Chant, sung in antiphony, was particularly effective. And He that Doth Search the Heart*, from <the motet Der Gei»t hill* unsseer Schwacheil auf by Bach, .and My Jesus, also by Bach displayed the activity of melody that had been achieved bv the 17th century. The second part of the program (presented a cross section It the history of music of the Larry Jeanes .above-) of Fayette was recently proclaimed county junior corn growing champion at a banquet held at Mason City in honor of northeast Iowa corn growing champions. His yield of 117.12 bushels per acre- was the top yield in Fayette county in the 1957 National Selected Two Acre DeKalb Junior 1 Corn Growing Contest. Unable to attend the banquet was Lyle Alcorn of West Union who produced a yield of 113.20 bushels p'c-r acre for second iplace and third place winner Larry Alber also of Fayette with a yield of 112.33 bushels per acre. 18th century with Schubert's Credo from his Mass in G; Salvation is Created by Tshesnakoff; followed by When Curtained Darkness Falls by Christiansen, who for many years directed th'_> St. Olaf Choir. The final number of the section was the moving Advent Motet, one of the few compositions of Schreck, a famous teacher who numbered Christiansen among his students. The importance of the opera tn the story of music was illustrated by a scene from Elijah by Mendelssohn and the Easter- Scene from Cavalleria Rusticana by Mascagni. ChesterO'Bannon, who sang the bass role of Elijah did an especially fine job, as did Shirley Generoux, singing the role of Santuzza in the Easter scene. With the chorus in the background, it was one of the most interesting numbers of the entire evening. The fourth and final group contained a HHh Century number. Spring by Grief, with Virginia Pearce singing a contralto solo part. It was followed by the negro -spirituals Go Down Moses and Set Down Servant. The final numb'er Stamp Your Foot from The Tender Land by Copland was based on a square dance and a group of the university choir members danced the number as the choir sang. The choir, which sings most of its numbers a cappella, has performed many times on radio and OTOLARSHIPS TO MU?1C CAMP ANNOUNCED The Fayette High School Music Club announced at their monthly meeting that Sharon Bla!:or and Bonnie Olson had In err selected by the scholarship committee to receive the annual vocal and instrumental scholarship, respectively, which gives the student:;, expense-free, a two weeks music training course at the State University of Iowa at Iowa City.

MURRAY EMPHASIZES HIS PROGRAM Many state issues today can be solved only through action both by the legislature and the governor, although the governor always should recommend to and cooperate with the law-makers on every issue, declared Dr. William G. Murray, candidate for the republican nomination for governor in a statement here today. Among the issues which he said must have action by both legislature and governor were. reapiportionment, any taxation change, expenditures for stale institution improvements and state aid to schools. Concerninj; reapportionment, Dr. Murray said that he favored a plan which would base the membership o' one house of the assembly on area, the other on population. and emphasized "there probably will be many plans offered in the legislature and it is very probable that no one plan will be adopted in its entirety". He said the governor and legislators should go into office in 1959 with the firm determination that they will give the state reapportionment. Dr. Murray's speech follows: Fn»m the very first week of my visits over ' the state to acquaint the people of Iowa with mp /policies as a possible candidate for the republican nomina tion for governor, I have stressed the need for a reapportionment of the legislature. .
