For more than a decade now-he has been a musical hero to England and the Continent, and when he sang in London and Paris, after an absence of several years, he was rapturously welcomed back. "That he has conquered musical America is an undoubted fact today," wrote. a critic last season. "Each year, as he resumes a winter tour ol this country, audiences await him with eagerness and leave the concert halls where he'has sung; conscious of a rare musical experience that no other'artist caii give. His fine-drawn, ineffably sweet style, his intense power of illusion, his perfect mastery of e very style and language in song are qualities, which, added to the deep sincerity and power of his Negro • spirituals, make 1 one of his programs a jewel with many flashing facets. His is an art which ripens with new beauty each year." The tenor's recital here is under auspices of Carver High School'. 'arsons A. Pickens Given Naval Aii- Medal Parsons, W. Va., Oct. 7 — Lieut.
