Beers' Violin Came on Even Trade for Rifle Fiddler Beers Sunday told members of the Austin Male Chorus how he came by his favorite violin — a Villaume made in France. Beers' grandfather got the instrument after several years of dickering with his neighbor, who had purchased it while attending the St. Louis Exposition in 1893. The two men were neighbors in Wisconsin. Both were fiddlers and hunters. Violins and guns were their choice possessions. They finally agreed to trade. His grandfather told young Bob Beers that it would be his some day, and he made good on the promise while "Fiddler" was a junior in college. Incidentally, the rifle came back into the Beers family many years later. Beers is playing his prized Villaume in the public schools today and Tuesday, and Tuesday night he will perform at the Austin Male Chorus" Holiday Concert. Chorus Introduces 2 Members as Soloists Two members of the Austin Male Chorus will have solo roles for the first time in the annual Holiday Concert Tuesday night. Arthur Houston, who has had long e x p e r i ence in church choirs and smaller groups, will sing the baritone in "The Navy Hymn," by Dykes, and Ray Hewitt, a newcomer in Austin, will sing the baritone solo in "Halls of Ivy,' Westby traditional college number.

Houston Hewitt and his wife Evelyne, day troubadors, combine Beers modern their talents in a revival of songs and ballads performed in folk style. Beers, who first gamed prominence through his serious interpretation of violin folk music, is 9110 of the few living players of the rare dulcimer, or psaltery, on which he accompanies his wife's ballads. The musical adventure of the couple has led them into many fields — symphony, chorus, composing, acting and research. They came to Austin from Lewiston, Mont., where Beers and Wilbur Funk male chorus director, taught public school music some years ago. Beers owns many instruments and many guns.

'Come and Get Me/ Is Plaint of Drunk Man An Austin man, very much under the influence, wasn't picked up fast enough early Sunday and he complained about it to a telephone operator. The operator called police at 5:33 a.m. Sunday and said that a man, apparently very drunk, had called her and said that he had broken windows at Elam's Jewelry and something should be done about it. Police went to the Jewelry store but found no broken windows. Just to be on the safe side they checked all the jewelry stores, but, still no broken windows. The operator called back in Hve minutes and said the man had called again saying, "A man could die before you'd do anything about it." This time the man was able to get across that he was at the Eagles Club, Oakland and River, which was of course closed that early In the morning. He had slurred "Eagles Club" in his first call so that it sounded like "Elam's." Police cars sped to the Eagles Club and sure enough found three windows broken for a loss of $85. Seated at the bar with a drink was the telephone caller with a phone that he was just about to hurl, police said. He was taken into custody and today paid a $10 fine for drunkenness in Municipal Court. Further charges are pending. 50 Girls Enter Crocker Test „- More than 50 senior Austin i7 n 'j' ~."" 1 """ jr ' m ' sa iviome ui- from $200 to $2,000 per year de- High School girls will participate I" ' * reasurer - and M >» Inez pending on the student's needs, in the Betty Crocker test Tu^v Egerstrom ' program in the Betty Crocker test Tuesday, Eligible are all senior girls en rolled in the home economics, nursing courses, as well as any will make two offices out of the w ' nner i in addition to re- wm mane two ottices out ol the r .
