It is the story of "the old man, Simeon, who carried the child, but the child led the old man." The second selection, "O Maria diana stella," a 15th century hymn to the Blessed Virgin was inspired by the piety of the common people and was sung at religious gatherings and sometimes in the processions where the Laudistae or singers of the Laude were garbed in white robes and carried candles in their hands.

Baroness Maria Von Trapp, mother of the family group and Martina Von 'Trapp, a daughter were not present due to illness. The group is composed of Baroness Von Trapp, her son, Werner and six daughters, Agathe, Johanna, Eleanore, Martina and Hed- v.-ig. The family came here- from Austria a few years ago at the suggestion of Metropolitan soprano Lotte Lehman and has been making nation-wide tours ever since. Father Wasner, a musician and composer in his own right joined the group in their Austrian home some years ago and eventually became their musical director.

"Faithful to the Cross" was ---- i written by King John the fourth i of Portugal who composed much church music and was famous for j his exlensive musical library. "Le Rossignol en amour" by F. Couperin and four seleclions by Mozart comprised the second part of the program showing the diversity of the recorder and virginal. A madrigal or religious poem set to music opened the third part of the program with "Audite nova" by Orlando di Lassus which tells the story of the feast of St. Martin. The song honors St. Martin's goose which according to legend once saved his life. "Farewell, My Love," 16th century anonymous,' "A Little White Hen," Scandelli. "Largo" and "Allegro" taken from Teleman's "Sonata in A Minor" brought out the delightful qualilies of a blend of fine voices. Christmas Ritual The last part of the program, and the most impressive was the enactment of the Austrian Christmas ritual. As the custom goes the Christ Child brings the gifts on Christmas eve. The opening of the presents is preceded by a ceremony in which each member of the family gathers outside to sing the traditional religious carols. Later in the evening the family goes to the village church for mid- ni"ht- Mv* which culminates their h(;iid~y r-lobration.

Rest Your Head," a Kentucky mountain carol The Welsh air "Deck The Halls," "The Viigm's I-'JJilaby" from Salsburg and "Es ':v ; .-,id scho glei jumpa" were also included. In German and English The final carol, symbolizing Christmas to all peoples, "Silent Night." was sung in the original German, then in English and the singers left the stage humming in perfect harmony and carrying the -lighted candle lit lanterns. The touching "Carol of the Drum," a Czechoslovakia!! song about the lit tie boy who had nothing to offer the Blessed Virgin at Christmas time except the playing of his drum was sung as an encore, also Brahms', "Lullaby" and two Austrian folk songs. Ushers for last night's concert were Suzanne Lake, Janet McCarty. Virginia Lamphier. Sybil Locke, Laura Russell and Linda Cross from the Academy. The third concert in the series, Mar. 8, will feature a philharmonic piano quartet of American artists, all graduates of the Julliard School of Music.

Alliance Mutual Holds Meeting The annual meeting of directors and pc-licyholders of the Alliance Mutual Fire Relief association was held in an all day session Tuesday, Jan. 13. The reports of the officers were heard and the following directors were re-elected: Frank YV. I-Io- bart, James A. Paddock, Harry D. Norton, F. J. Blodgett, and Henry D. Kemp, Macedon, N. .Y., was elected as a new member on thc- board. company two-year term as follows: Frank W. Hobart, president; James A. Paddock, vice-president; Harry D. Norton, treasurer: and F. .T. Blodgett, secretary and manager of the company. Financial reports showed a net increase of about 2 million dollars c-r new business during the year and an increase of about $25,000 to the cash reserve fund. Fire losses for the year were about 30 per cent lower than the previous year. All were officers of the re-elected for a Final School Plan (Continued from page 1) 500,000 at 2 percent the annual payment o n ' t h e building, would average $65,000. "With out present assessment of taxable property in the school district at slightly under $9,500,000, it takes a tax "rale on the entire assessment of ten and a half cents to produce a thousands dollars. To raise an annual payment on the building of $65,000 would require a tax rate of $6.85. To offset this, next year's budget will provide for the last payment on the Gyriina-- sium Build'ing, totaling $10,200 which will reduce the tax rate for debt service-by $1.07. "Therefc-re the net increase .in the tax rate for debt service would be approximately $5.78. This means that a taxpayer having property Reports Feature e Knights Templar Elect A. ]. Riker 1948 Commander on the tax roll assessed at $5,000 would be paying 328.90 per year more than he is now paying, toward the cost of the new building. "When construction of the present Academy building -was' under consideration in 1904, the amount of property on the school tax roll was $4,154,597. The present school tax roll is almost $9,500,000 and it is felt there will be a- further steady increase during the thirty years the new bond issue would run. This would not reduce the annual $65,000 payment but should decrease the initial rate of $6.83 presently required to raise the 565,000 by spreading it over a larger Lasu.'"

Making public a table showing comparative 1946 and 1947 contributions by counties, Wehle said: "The fine" record of the National Foundation in combatting infantile paralysis and its crippling results over the past year cannot but serve to increase contributions In this year's appeal. With the fine volunteer organization which will- function, over the period of the appeal, Jan. 15 through Jan. 30. and with the wonderful constructive period of the foundation to back it up, I am confident that we will establish new records." Wehle, Rochester business man giving his services to the fund appeal without financial recompense for the fifth successive year, declared the incidence of polio continued to be high last year despite all the effc-rts to conquer it. "But we are on the right track." he said.' "Research, backed by- foundation funds, is making progress in our great universities and hospitals, while at the same time", thousands of polio victims are finding aid and comfort in the facilities afforded by our dimes." Wehle's comparative 1946-M7 table disclosed that this county- last year contributed S6.938.09 net, against 510,792.13 in 1946.

SERMON: From the King James version of the Bible: (Deut. '27:9. 10; 30:19, 20). Correlative passages f r o m "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy include: "Life is Mind, the creator reflected in His creations. If He dwelt within what He creates, God would not be reflected hut. absorbed, and the Science of being would be forever lost through a mortal sense, which falsely testifies to a beginning ami an end . . . . Entirely separate from the belief and dream of material living, is the Life divine, revealing spiritual understanding and the consciousness of man dominion over the whole earth' (pp. 331, 14).
