Ogburn, University of Chicago sociologist, believes. Children will become objects 01 greater care, attention and "value" as the birth rate decreases, the sociologist predicted. The increasing proportion of older people in the population will mean more votes for the conservative party, he said. Present figures indicate the population of the United States will reach a stationary figure of 150,000,000 to 155,000,000 in 25 years, and thereafter may decline, Dr. Ogburn said. He attributed an increase in the birth rate in the past two years to marriages which had been post| poned by the depression. j The automobile and the telephone I are breaking up cities "by centri- ! fugal force," he said, with suburban areas benefiting by the continued trend of population away from | farms. ! j Ogburn forecast an increasing ' volume of propaganda until "it will be difficult to get away from people trying to sell you something, either goods or opinions." ! A tremendous rise in nationalism, coupled with propaganda, he said, will make for intolerance. He warned that the whole complex may endanger personal liberty, the defense of which "should be a major concern of the American people." Operatic Fame Won in Europe Leads Illinois Girl to Criticize U. S. for Apathy Toward Music " ? BY MART KNIGHT United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK--Where there is a will, not even relatives, can stand in the way, says Mignon Spence, vest-pocket vrima donna of the late American Opera Company, who proved it by running away from ' h o m e when she was 16 years old to sing herself around the world. · The real inside story of how a very, very young girl with the determination of a very, very mature woman--"stubbornness" she calls it --literally lilted her way from Metropolis, 111., to ail the capitals of Europe sounds like another version of Alice in Wonderland, but Mignon in Musicland is a modern tale with all the requisites of good theater, drama, comedy and a sprinkling of the intangible qualities which contribute to make the human interest element paramount. . i "All I knew--or careci about-- i was that I had to sing," she said 'today when asked to begin at the beginning and "tell all." "Naturally my parents objected because of my youth and they thot all the .terrible things about the theater that most parents think. It was a way, however, and the only way 1 saw to begin. I took it, and came to New York, where, after singing in small vaudeville acts and everywhere I could get a chance to prove my voice, I finally made my debut in light opera with the ·\.American Opera Company. Told to Get Experience "I was thrilled, of course, but the company did not last long and before I signed up for another permanent engagement, my closest friends realized that if I went ahead without first getting more experience, I . would be ruined as many other singers have been from too much publicizing of their immature voices. So instead of singing on here in America, I went to Italy and studied in Milan under Filippo Navi." Under Navi's expert tutelage, Miss Spence became known thru- out the Italian provinces, especially in the "stumbling-block towns" such as Turin, Genoa and Bolanzo, ' avoided by most singers because the audiences are so critical that few singers ever pass the tests imposed upon them. Mignon speaks Italian as fluently as she does English, while her German and French sound to natives of those countries like her mother tongue. "In the provinces," she explains, "the people know all their operas by heart and will not tolerate any Inferiority in their Interpretation- They either accept you and love you. or else they black ball you after your first performance." Called Sensational Success After what was termed in the vernacular press "a sensational success" in Malta, Miss Spence sang on the French Riviera and then in Belgium. Success came to the little girl from Metropolis who made good a second time at the Flemish Opera House in Antwerp. Back in America after six years, this international guest artist is amazed at the lack of opportunity for American singers to become known in their own country. "Why I even discovered that one of our best singers with the American Opera Company had signed himself up as a. barber on the Major Bowes program just to get an audition! Why can't America discover her own talent instead of forcing it to be recognized by European countries before she will see it herself?" / Miss Spence believes that the success of America's musical future lies in Municipal Opera--State Opera organized from Government subsidies, just as public schools are organized and operated--and a s , provincial opera is conducted in i Italy. Deplores American Conditions "So many American artists," she says, "are prophets without honor in their own country, and today when all countries are taking such an Interest in their own national affairs, this seems such a shame. America has only one real opera company--the Metropolitan -- and yet there are dozens of cities that would eagerly and enthusiastically ZANESVILLE RURAL CARRIER, ABOUT TO R E T I R E , STRICKEN Where Pleasure Begins for Clereland visitors to the magnificent Great Lakes ExpMittoa ZANESVILLE, O. -- -Twenty-four J hours after he received certification j papers for his retirement, Ross A. !
