MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY 28 1931 INTERESTING WEEK PROMISED BY EVENTS SCHEDULED Department Hears Talk on Musical Mrs. Pearce, 'Mrs. Hathorn Are Speakers at Meeting. At the meeting of the music department of the Woman's club Friday afternoon at the home of Mrs. B. I. Bright, 1104 West State street, .Mrs. Frank Pearce gave a talk on "Music Appreciation" and Mrs. William H. Hathorn discussed "Sigmund Spaeth." "Music differs from all the other arts because It cannot be viewed from a single point as can a statue or painting," Mrs. Pearce said. "In considering music the memory is an important factor. Everyone Is born a critic of music. "There are three mechanical fac^ tors in the piano, the stretched strings, the keys, and the player. Next to the organ, the piano is the most complicated musical instrument, altho it is possible for any person to be taught to play the piano. Listening requires training, too. Both the ears and the mind are important to the listener. · Dominant Seventh Used. "The dominant seventh chord is used more in piano music than any one other. Much composition consists of modulating toward and away from the dominant which is the fifth note in the scale and the most important. The tonic of first note is next and the mediant of third note is third in important." Using the key of C, Mrs. Pearce explained how its minor is found by counting down three notes to A. "An interval is the combination of any two tones, not necessarily on a piano. The interval of a sixth is one of the most attractive." Mrs. Pearce played Chopin's "Nocturne in A" to demonstrate both sixth and the dominant seventh chord. She played parts from two Beethoven sonatas to show the difference between the major and minor and "Waltz" by August Durant, and example of modulating. Mrs. Hathorn Speaks. The trend of a writer or musician is marked by the era in which he was born," Mrs. Hathorn said. "Sigmund Spaeth was born just before the beginning of the gay nineties, a transition period in music. We are just at the close of the period now. "Mr. Spaeth taught at Princeton before beginning his career as aNvriter and musician. In his books he has combined his talent for and for music so that his ry readable and_ par- act'rve to people who think thliy are not musical. " 'Gentlemen Be Seated' is a collection of songs used in minstre! shows along with a history of the shows. It gets its title from the first words of the interlocutor in a show. "In 'Common Sense of Music' he proves that modern songs which are popular are that because they are fragments of really good music. 'Read 'em and Weep' and 'Weep Same More My Lady' are compilations of old 'songs. In 'They Still Sing of Love' the author analyzes what is the matter with our music. Millions For Music. "He writes that altho America spends millions on music it is actually the most unmusical country in the world. There are three kinds ' of music, classic, light classic and popular and any music dealer will admit that the largest part of his sales are in popular. Foot listeners are still in the majority as they ' were when primitive homo sapiens beat on his tom-tom and was satisfied. "There are several natural haza- ards to be overcome and the first Is the feeling that we ought to like music. The second is the substitu- TO REPRESENT LOCAL CHAPTER AT CONVENTION MRS. HARRY WRIGHT MISS DOROTHY RANSOM tion o'i. the personality of the musician/for the music itself; the third, the puerile character o£ the popular programs on which the musical public is fed-up, and fourth, the fact that a musician is considered poor if he is local. The Civic Music associations have made the first step in the right direction. "Jazz comes nearer to being American folk music than anything else. It is an evolution from and an expression of our people. It has all the characteristics of folk music, simplicity of melody, distinction of tone color, spirit of improvisation and monotony of rhythm. It represents the restlessness, naviete,-in- sistance upon the obvious, and the slight vulgarity of America. If it is not goojJLit will eventually ^destroy itself according to the law ~6f"evo- lution.

Last night my fiance told me he had had affairs with two vomen before he met me. He said le felt he had to tell me as he thot t the only fair and square thing :o do. "I love-feim so that I told him I vould forgive him. Before he told me of this we had made plans for our marriage, altho we have not announced them yet. "Now Virginia, please .tell me vhat is the right thing to do. Should put him out of my life or should ~ go ahead with the jjlans to marry lim? I love him so and he has owed his love for me. "TROUBLED." That was a pretty fine and coura- eous thing for your fiance to do, vasn't it Troubled? I don't believe many men would have felt it necessary to. confess their fault or have had the courage to do it if they had wanted to. Now it is up to you to show that you are big enough to Forgive and forget--and don't forget the forget part. · Treat him as you would wish to be treated if the case had been reversed--if you had been the transgressor. It is easy to sin, you know, but to repent and sue for forgiveness as your betrothed has done takes a good, clean sport, and you should recognize it and let your love teach you to pardon. "To err is human, to forgive, divine," you know * » * I MISS P.: You'll have to get over the idea that you may appear to be "running after" the young men Miss P., and treat them with thi same easy camaraderie that you ua with the girl friends. Maybe you could turn A's personal jokes b; teasing him a little about some girl That would make it less embarrass ing for you. It's hard to give you Implicit instructions on how to gain boy friends without knowing more about you and them. If these boys are interested in you and know you like them, they should ask you for dates. You should have a place to en tertain your friends, but i£ yo' can't, give them a jolly time with the family occasionally. You ca play games ^and sing, etc. Boys 2ik that. Invite this boy who rooms a your house to join in some of th family sport. He probably would ap preciate that, as he is away frorr home. I don't believe you will hav much trouble gaining a few friends as one friend generally leads to an other. * * * JOY B.: You will have to decid which you had rather do, lose th friendship of the boy with whom you have been going In order to have dates with others; or to continue to go with him and give up other dates. I think you will feel better satisfied to have other dates, even if It means the loss of this one boy, but the decision must rest with you and your feelings for this boy. ,»· FRIENDLY HOME CLUB GIVES MUSIC PROGRAM Under the auspices of the Friendly Home club of Rockwell a program of music was given at the I.
