\ "-. FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 1939 Mason City Has Another Winning Band, Says O'Neil Director of Royal Canadian Band Visits With Local Musicians "Music is a language. Try to learn and understand it, and, by all means, read enough o£ it so you can discriminate between the good advice given to and the bad.", This was the Mason City high school students of music at the music hall Thursday by Capt. Charles O'Neil, director of the Royal 22nd Regiment band of Quebec for 27 years, which appeared at the recent coronation in England to lead the coronation parade and which was the only band appearing there with the exception of the British highlanders. Captain O'Neil, judge of many Class A national contest bands, directed the local band in several numbers and stated that the material was all here for another winning band. "It is amazing," he stated, "to hear a high school band play music of this caliber." After directing Schubert's "Unfinished Symphony" the captain declared that Schubert had never been surpassed for pure inspiration. Was Enthusiastic The grey haired, pleasant faced Englishman in of dark blue, his business suit was enthusiastic 1 -f 1 about the music education system in the United States. "In my opinion," he said, "the school music movement is the most marvelous in the whole educational field and a necessary part to a well-rounded education. The only danger is that students may become so enthused that they neglect other things. When I was young there was no radio and I had little chance to go to large to hear great bands. You everything today and the cities have reason you do is that old folks like myself want to give young folks the start in music that we didn't have when we were young." When asked how English and .Canadian systems compared with ours, the captain stated that their music is mostly vocal, with only 'spasmodic instrumental work. He said, "They are much behind American systems." Not All Musicians To the question as to whether _those not planning a music career should take a music course, Captain O'Neil instantly replied, "Does everyone that studies poetry plan to become a poet? Of course not. 'The value of a musical education to the average student is that it will equip him to be a discriminating public later on." ; Captain O'Neil was most en- WALLPAPER PAIHT WesaTe you money. Ihusiastic about Carleton Lee Stewart, director of high school 3and and orchestra. "It is my opinion," he declared, 'that here in Mason City is one of the most outstanding young men in the country, and one who will go very far in the music profession. He is one of the few that 's being looked to, to carry present music movement to the top. 1 lave watched his growth for many years and am beginning to wonder IE he will ever stop growing. It is with extreme pride, I call him my friend." The distinguished musician was wearing a gold pencil presented to him by the former Prince of Wales. This pencil bears the initial ''IT as the first name of the former prince is David, not Edward, as commonly supposed. He was also wearing crested cuff links presented to him by Queen Victoria's second son and has another pair of cuff links which were given him by the present Duke o£ Windsor. He's Slill Liked Captain O'Neil was the third person in Canada to be presented to the Prince of Wales during his tour o£ Canada in 1919 and considers him to be a person of an extremely likeable personality. When asked as to present feeling in England towards the Duke of Windsor, the captain stated that he was still beloved but not nearly as popular as he was before abdication. In speaking of the present king and queen, Captain O'Neil said, "King George is much like his late father and last gaining in popularity. Before the abdication he was running a camp for middle-class boys, and it is this democratic nature along with his 'home-man qualities that are endearing both him and his wife to the English people:" Speaking o£ the queen he said, "She is truly a grand woman and well equipped to be queen of England."

Profusion of Flowers There was a profusion of flowers throughout the store, which added considerable life to the already gay colorings of spring ensembles and merchandise displayed in the modernly simple, quiet atmosphere of the store. Contrasted with this color was the Philippine mahogany furnishings, the metal-trimmed lighting fixtures and dark flooring. T h e entire store is typical of large city department stores and persons who viewed the newest store in the city prophesied a successful future here in the heart of Mason City, the trading center of all north Iowa and southern Minnesota. Von Wiegand States Fuehrer Possessed by Fever of Haste NEW YORK--This startling disclosure is made in the April issue of Cosmopolitan magazine in an article by Karl H. von Wiegand, noted correspondent, called "Hitler Foresees His End!" The fuhrer, von Wiegand says, gives himself six months more, perhaps a year, at the most two years. And then . . . ? Hitler is already living in a retreat--"Adlerhorst" ("E a g i o ' s Nest")--high in the B a v a r i a n mountains, which many believe is his self-designed^ mausoleum: Whether this 'presentiment of impending disaster comes from a fear of death through illness or accident, or whether he foresees being overthrown by his enemies or even his own people, Hitler does not say. AH he will commit himself to is this: 'Meine zeit ist nun kurz'--"The end of my mission in the world is nearing." Has Fex-er of Haste This is of terrifying proportions Hitler, von Wiegand reports, is being consumed by a fever of haste and impatience, fearful that he may not have the necessary time to achieve the goals he set for himself long ago: (1) To be the liberator of Germany. (2) To be the increaser uniter and consolidator of the Third Reich. (3) To be the destroyer of Bolshevism. The first two goals Hitler believes he has achieved. As to the third, von Wiegand has always understood i to mean the creation of the independent state of XJkrania and the overthrow o£ the Bolshevik regime in Moscow. It is interesting to note that today Hitler no longer flies, thi same man who traveled almos everywhere in Germany in hi: own special plane. He has als given orders that Field Marsha Goering and other important mem bers of cabinet must not fly. "An accident shall not come to the ai of enemies of Germany," he explains. Paradox of Emotions The strength, the weakness o Hitler, this paradoxical interplaj of emotions, how can they be ex plained? Von Wiegand believe der fuhrer stands under som nysterious command: "that long nd intense concentration on the dea and thought of the attainment f power, now achieved, has exposed him to a 'mighty complex' vith all its mental, emotional and psychic dangers." Hitler related^ to von Wiegand many years ago how the divine mandate came to him. He was ly- ng in a hospital shortly after the var, blinded from a gas attack on he front. "And as I lay there," he narrated simply, "it came over me that I would liberate the German people and make Germany great." That was in 1918. Today, more :han 20 years later, he is still striving to make Germany great. But if he feels his time is short and must act quickly, what does this portend for the future and the 5eace oJ the world? It is a ques- j'on which must not go begging. Only Hitler or the democracies can answer it.

ATKINS SECOND WEEK--ADVENTURERS Dangerous Gods And their gods shall be a snare unto you. Read Judges 2:1-5. The Old Testament prophets and moralists waged a long fight against.the gods of Canaan. They were dangerous gods because they made a cult of desire and asked for sacrifice only the indulgences of sense. If life is empty when its shrines are empty what care we need to take about our loyalties and devotions. There are still dangerous gods. A religion of race and blood enshrines dangerous gods. So do strife for power and possession and the allurements of sense. 'Whatever bows the sacred capacities of the spirit before low altars is dangerous. It takes our best and leaves us only the bitter taste of the ashes of our faiths and enthusiasms; or such tragedy as is wasting half the world. Every morning's newspaper is a comment on this old passage. "What is the matter with the world? Dangerous gods. Prayer: Lord of the Searching and the Lasting, Whose altars are high and holy, teach us the sacredness of our faith and loyalties and forbid that we should spend them upon the base or the fugitive. Be Thou the guardian of our altars. Forgive us all the gods we .set up in place of Thee and Thy causes. In His Name Who has lifted our vision to Thy Fatherhood and made this world Thy temple. Amen. CLASSES RESUMED C O R W I T H--Corwith schools held classes Wednesday after a day's vacation because of the blizzard Tuesday. Part of the pupils arrived late for classes because of blocked roads Wednesday morning and the failure of bus drivers to make their entire routes.
