3 Friday, October 13, 1944 Meat Co. SEMI-WEEKLY "ZOOMS" Howdy, Folks! . . . Old songs have long been my hobby, so the other day a friend said to me, "Why don't you put an old song in your Weekly 'Zooms' occasionally?" . . . You know, folks, after thinking about it a great deal, that sounded like a very good idea, and talking to some of the olfccr real old-timers, such as Earl Cady, diet O'Neill, John Ware and others, \vc decided that whenever we heard one of the old-lime songs or some friend suggested an old-timer, we would put part of it in the "Zooms." Now along comes Mr. Ellery, the general manager of the El Tcjon Hotel, and also Bob Evans of the United States Employment office, both with suggestions of old-time songs. From time to time we will run the chorus of any old- time song you readers send in to our office. So if you have an old favorite, just mail it to Frank Meat Company, 339 Chester avenue, and we will see to it that it appears in our "Zooms." How's this one for an old-timer ... incidentally very appropriate for today: "How you gonna keep 'cm down on the farm After they've seen I'aree, How you gonna keep them away from Rroadway, Jazzing around, painting the town. How you gonna keep them awuy from harm, that's the mystery. They will never want to see a rake or plow, Who the deuce ran parley voo a tow? How you gonna keep (hem down on the farm, After they've seen Parec?" Wait a minute . . . this almost sounds like an ad for the Phillips Music Company, located at 1G10 Nineteenth street, but it's meant to get you to come to any one of Frank Meat Company's six busy markets and buy some of our good meat. MEAT the people at Frank Meat Company's six busy markets.

Inspectors M. I... Balrd and P. Q. Fickert are working on the case. * bviously laboring to overcome (he handicaps at a cold, Ezio Plnxa, famed Metropolitan basso, nevertheless left with his audience last night at tho Kox theater the impression of a winger with great sonority of tone, intelligent handling of song content and an emotional welding of tone and meaning that invested the program with convincing moods. The Kern County Musical Association 1944-1945 concert season could not nave hnd a more auspicious opening with 1(100 patrons in attendance upon a singer that created nn important musical evening. Although the concert was almost canceled earlier in the day, because of the singer's indisposition, lie was able to fulfill the engagement after resting and receiving medical treatment. This physical hazard kept the singer from using his voice with Ihe freedom and spontaneity for which he is renowned, but he was adequate throughout the evening for all the demands of the program. The selections chosen were, for the most part, unhackneyed and opulent dramatically. Emotionally, they exploited fully the singer's vocal girth from the tender berceuse of Dormi, Amore from La Flores, (Da Cagliano) to the impassioned aria II Liiceratn Spirit o from "Simon Hoceanegra," (Verdi). Particularly in the latter, the rounded resonance of the basso's lowest notes were a thrilling auditory experience even for the musically sophisticated members of tho audience who have heard the great bassos of their time. Noble Melodies Stylistically the singer encompassed the broad, noble melodies of the Handel arias. Cara Sposa. from "Ulnaldo," and Si Tra I Ceppl, the joyous affirmation of faith, as well MS the quickly turning rhythm of IVHereux Vagabond (Hruncnu) and in English, Cato's Drinking Song, a vigorous number. The clearcut emphasis of the singer's art appeared to fine advantage in the English group that also contained Griffes' "The Lament of Ian the Proud," "Winter" (Edward Harris), the mystically appealing, "To One Unknown" (Carpenter), and the love nostalgia of "Do You Remember" (Mischa Levitzki). The singer Is also capable of those song inflections that are needed for subtlety and sardonic philosophy of Moussorgorsky's "The Flea Song," added as an encore, and the bitter philosophy of "I Due Tafll (Zan- donai). A Negro spiritual "Thundering, Wondering," was one of the few numbers on the program in which the singer was not completely at home, for essence of Negro philosophical acceptance is almost a quality of voice rather than a vocal achievement. Mr. Pinza's voice in the last few numbers sounded more fully the complete forte of his vocal range and greater biVivura. Throughout the evening he was given distinguished pianistic support by Oibner King, whose concepts were, equal to the broad and varied style of the evening's program. The. next event of the Kern County Musical Association series will be the Ballet IJusse de Monte Carlo, on November 30. Thanksgiving Will Be Observed November 23 The ax falls for the Thanksgiving turkey this year, November 23, with the fourth Thursday of the month designated by a joint resolution in Congress.
