Page, 51*. chief of the Atlantic command, died early today of heart disease. Bakersfield Community Theatre value to any musician. The latter is true of Floyd Stancliff, Bak- crsfield flutist, who was concentrating on this instrument and still regards it as his own forte, who is now an orchestra conductor. Tho local youth seems to be making a name for himself and Santa Hosa Army Air Field Lit tie Symphony Orchestra. He Directed tho organ- NAUNDfiRN Izatlon in special performances this week at March Field. Tills organization, over which CorpoVal Stancliff wields the baton, is one of the relatively few musical organizations in any branch oMhe armed forces that presents classical music. The popularity of this orchestra now- rivals that of dance orchestras In northern California. It appears weekly on the Santa Hosa Army Air Field's radio show, "Tho Jackpot" broadcast from Station KSUO and it recently appeared in a concert at the amphitheater at Hamilton Field. It will begin shortly to make a weekly short wave broadcast to all troops overseas under the auspices of t the Office of AVar Information. Choice by the OUT of the Santa Rosa Symphonic Orchestra indicates that H rates high among military musical organizations on the Pacific coast. Success of this orchestra indicates the success of Corporal Stancliff as a conductor. Tie is credited with surety in handling tho orchestra and with definite reading of the score that shows up in subtle nuances in tones that he achieves. Most pleasing, say listeners, is his ability to produce tone, and color in orchestral materials. Tho young orchestra conductor is the son of Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Ore-enough, 21*31 Twenty-second street. "Pining My Way," a tender, sentimental piece with Bing Crosby playing the role of a young priest who gets a church debt paid by singing his way along and delivers his sermons musically, is the pleasant offering now at the Fox theater. Despite King's fine handling of songs that shows a. great improvement in his voice, the show really belongs to one Barry FJtxgerald, former Irish Abbey theater player, who, given his first full-length opportunity, takes it with relish. His portrait of the elder Father Fitx- tribbons, being gracefully retired by hi.s bishop, and who cannot see eye to eye on the modern methods with his new young curate (Bing), brings to bear all the whimsy and quizzical humor at his command. There can bo little doubt but that when Academy awards are being passed out this year, Mr. Fitzgerald should be standing in line with his hand out. A young newcomer in the cast is Jean Heather, an attractive young player who possesses screen vitality, but needs to learn variety in performance. Rise Stevens appears as a Metropolitan Opera star an^ .sings. She does little to help the picture except make it appear that a boys' choir can sing more succcssfuly than she. There is a large bunch of engaging boys in the cast who are proteges of the young parish priest, who gets them singing "Throe Blind Mice" in the church choir loft, scandalizing the older priest, while gradually he works them up to "Silent Night" and "Ave Maria." There are other fine plays in the cast. All in all. it's a good show for the whole family to see. DEMOCRATS MEET !* ««* ANNOUNCES PUBLIC TRYOUTS for "CLAUDIA" Monday, August 28, 7:30 P. M.
