Young Pianist Coming Keith and Diana Miller at Home in Juneau For the third concert in the current Alaska Music Trail series Fairbanksans will hear the young pianist Adrian Ruiz from Los Angeles, Calif. The Ruiz concert is set for 8:15 p.m. on the evening of Jan. 31 at Hering Auditorium and is open to all members of the Fairbanks Concert Association. Ruiz qualifies as a young artist for he was born in Los Angeles, Calif, on Nov. 17, 1937, which makes him just past his 29th birthday. Ruiz' early training was at the Curtis Institute under Rudolph Serkin, the result of a scholarship. Since that time he has studied with such notable concert artists as Jacob Gimpel, Ampuro Iturbi, and Lillian Stuber. He is a 1962 graduate, cum laude, of the School of Music of the University of Southern California, and received his USC masters degree in 1964, along with their Alumni Association Aivard in music. Young Ruiz has been a prize winner from an early age. In 1954 he won the coveted Kimber Award, then the Los Angeles Philharmonic- Youth Series Award. In 1960 he carried offthe Young Musicians Foundation Award, followed by the Fresno Young Artists Award and the National Federation of Music Clubs' "Most Valuable Musician" Award. In 1961 he won the Long Beach Young Artists Award, and immediately received a grant from the International Institute of Education to participate in the 10th Munich International Piano Competition. The only American to reach the semi-finals, he was offered a scholarshiptotheParis Conservatory. In 1962 the institute sent him to Italy to the Busoni International Piano Competition, where he won a Special Merit Award. He also held scholarships at USC and at the famous Marlboro Music Festival, and in 1965 he was a winner of the Michaels Award in the big Chicago competition. Ruiz has repeatedly appeared as guest artist with Southern California orchestras and has consistently scored artistic triumphs. He has soloed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, with the Pasadena, Glendale, Burbank, Highland Park, and Hollywood Symphony | Orchestras, with the Orange | County and Fresno Philharmonic j Orchestras, with the Redlands j Bowl, Long Beach, Santa Monica, and Debut Orchestras, with the Compton Civic Symphony and Tulare County Symphony, and --in the East -- with the Marlboro Orchestra and the Chicago Symphony. Typical of the critical press comments garnered by young Ruiz are the reviews of last August The San Bernardino Sun- Telegram headline was: PIANIST STARS IN TOP CONCERT, and the reviewer wrote in part: "The Redlands Bowl Symphony Orchestra closed the summer in a burst of glory Tuesday night and they and the poetic piano soloist, Adrian Ruiz, received a standing ovation from the4,500 music-lovers attending. . . "Ruiz, who soloed in Liszt at the Bowl as a boy just a decade ago, returned in manhood to perform an inspired reading of the Rachminoff. He did not hammer at the Concerto, as do so many of his contemporaries, but chose a style like the composer's. There was remarkable loveliness in the melodies, yet there was fire in the fast passages. . ." By MIKE DALTON For the News-Miner Since June 1, 1966 it's been a busy, busy seven and a half months for Alaska's new secretary of state Keith H, Miller and his wife Diana. In June the couple began campaigning for nomination in the primary election. Once that hurdle was made, the two began even more earnestly campaigning for the Republican election in November. And since the Millers arrived in Juneau on Nov. 28 (one week before Miller was sworn into office) it's been a constant swirl of activities and many days of long, long hours . . . of more work! One week ago today found them in the midst of the busiest weekend in Juneau in many years -the inauguration of the governor l and secretary of state. Today the Millers are still not completely settled. They have just completed their fourth move since the Nov. Sgeneral election. Thanksgiving Day the couple left Fairbanks, driving to Juneau via Hajnes and the Alaska ferry system. They settled first in Juneau's Baranof Hotel, moved then to an apartment hotel on the outskirts of town overlooking Gastineau Channel, moved again to an apartment near Auke Bay and finally have settled (they hope for good!) in a trim two bedroom house on an almost private little cove in Auke Bay. The view out picture windows would thrill any artistic oriented person. Diana Miller's hobby and favorite pastime is painting and she's preparing for the time very soon when she can get out her paints, canvasses and get to work. The house has a boat house (they don't have a boat) and a dock. Already friends have asked to moor their boat in the Miller's private dock. "I think that's a wonderful idea since they offered to let us use the boat sometimes," Diana says. , One of the bedrooms will be a study, but today it is filled with packing boxes still full of personal belongings, books and household items. "We are gradually getting settled, but we've been so busy since we arrived in Juneau --and especially the last week -- that we just haven't had time to get the house in order," Diana explained. Principal activity last weekend was the formal inauguration of Gov. Walter J. Hickel and Keith Miller. The ceremony took place at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14 in a packed Juneau High School gymnasium. Prior to that ceremony the Millers appeared at an inaugural pageant in the high school auditorium. Friday night Secretary and Mrs. Miller accompanied the new governor and Mrs. Hickel on a round of official visits to the inaugural dinners held in four locations in the city of Juneau, Preceding that full' evening was the governor's open house reception held in the Juneau "white house." Hundreds of out-of-town guests, as well as Juneau residents, filed through the governor's house and were met personally by the Hickels and Millers. "I never knew what it was like to shake that many hands," Diana recalled Sunday as she relaxed before her picture windows and watched a low fog slowly lift from the cove. "I shook hands constantly and didn't realize that I had been doing so for two full hours." At one time during the open Capsule Book Review "Great Dishes of the World" by Robert Carrier (published by Random House, $12,95) is a beautiful and fascinating book to read. And it's illustrated with mouthwatering color pictures. The double-page spread of a New England boiled dinner should bring happy memories to anyone who has ever tasted a fine one. And there's a wonderful collection of other tempting American dishes as well as delightful recipes from many other countries. Blanching Nuts Nuts are blanched by immersing in boiling water for two minutes, then in cold water. Drain and remove the skins, then spread thinly in pans and put in a warm oven to dry for a few hours. The crlspness depends upon their dryness. Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Saturday, January 21,1967--5 Wild Fashions for the Jungle Prints arc taking over the fashion spotlight here in the U.S. and in Rome -- and they're entirely different as far as motifs are concerned In Kome, they feature the jungle look. Elizabeth Taylor's Dome dress designer, Tiziani -- who really is Texas-born Evan Richards -- starred a whole series of safari outfits in his spring arid summer collection. For jungle evenings -- presumably -- there are long and short dresses in wildrcolored large African designs. And the jewelry worn with these dresses is even wilder -- huge wooden bangles, wooden beads and wooden painted earrings the size of saucers. Probably the most talked-about -- and certainly the most eye- popping -- in Tiziani's jungle collection was a dress with a large parakeet painted across the abdomen and jungle foliage all around. As one fashion writer commented. "This isawildfash- ion to end all wild fashions." Here at home they're showing some pretty gay color combinations and big, splashy prints, but there are some attractive small prints, too, although few arc in pastel hues. Rather, the 1967 prints are brightly colored, usually in geometrical designs. Incidentally, the printed jacket dress is making a big comeback, which is good news to most women who like to dress comfortably and at the same time look smart Bent Coins If you are a coin collector and 'have a few bent coins in your rare collection, you can straighten them without danger of defacingby sawing off two short segments from a broom handle, placing the coin between these, and then striking the top segment with a hammer. Turn the coin after each stroke, and it should flatten out perfectly. AT RECEPTION -- Secretary of State Keith Miller and wife, Diana, greet Fairbanksans Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Bailey at the inauguration reception in Juneau last weekend. --(Photos by Mike DaJton) house, guests waited two deep in line that stretched three blocks outside the new governor's home on Calhoun Ave, Friday morning the Millers had acted as off icialgreeters for visiting dignitaries arriving at Juneau airport. Saturday evening was the "big" night in Juneau. The occasion: the inaugural balls. Again the Millers accompanied the governor and his first lady on a tour of the balls which were held simultaneously in the National Guard Armory, the Baranof Hotel, the Elks and Moose Lodges. Though the inaugural ball was termed a semi-formal. affair, almost every woman attending wore a floor length formal gown. Two of the most outstanding were worn by Mrs. Hickel and Mrs. Miller. Mrs. Hickel chose a semi-fitted skirt of white slipper satin with a bodice of grey chiffon,, richly decorated with beads, crystals and sequins. Diana Miller woreafull-skirt- ed white formal embossed with a floral pattern. The gown had a high waistline and was shoulder- less. She wore a jeweled clip in her hair which was piled high in an upsweep style. Pre-inaugural, festivities in Fairbanks and Anchorage had been on the busy Miller schedule, but circumstances prevented their attending. "We were really looking forward to returning to Fairbanks and Anchorage for the Governor's Holiday Balls,"Miller said. "But an annual celebration held in Juneau by the Filipino community was scheduled at the same time. It was the first time in 20 years that the governor of Alaska could not be present We remained in Juneau for those ceremonies instead." Getting back home to Fairbanks £ (and also Anchorage) is on the communities and have many friends in both places. Alaska's new secretary of state first came to Alaska in 1946 and worked for a contractor in Juneau. In 1948 and 1949 he worked as a deckhand on the gold dredges at Chatanika and Goldstream near Fairbanks. He graduated from Bothell High School in Seattle in 1943, served three years in the Army Air Corps in World War n, and completed his college education at the University of Washington in 1952. Miller's grandparents, Arthur and Edith Miller, lived in Alaska from 1911 to 1934. His grandfather was with the Bureau of Indian Affairs at Susitna Station, Copper Center, Anchorage and Juneau, Miller's father spent his early life in Alaska and attended high school in Anchorage from 1917 to 1919. In 1957 Keith Miller came back to Alaska for the Internal Revenue Service and has remained in the state since. He and his wife homesteaded 160 acres at Talkeetna in 1959 and 1960. Their homestead cabin, which they use for a summer home, gives themabeautiful view of Mt McKinley. Diana Doyle Miller was born in Seattle, Wash., and was reared by her grandparents in Spokane, Wash. After her grandmother's death in 1945, Diana was sent to school at Immaculate Heart High School in Hollywood, Calif, where she graduated in 1948, She has also studied at Immacu- late Heart College in Hollywood, at Seattle University and the University of Alaska. During their homesteading days in Talkeetna, Diana Miller worked clearing fields; she learned to snowshoe; and her interest in painting was renewed. When Keith Miller was elected to the Alaska State Legislature from Anchorage '(1963-1964 term), Diana went with him to Juneau and continued her artistic pursuits in the picturesque capital city. In 1965 the Millers moved to Fairbanks. On June 1, 1966 Miller filed for the office of secretary of state and the couple that day began a completely new phase of their varied and interesting life in Alaska.
