SHORTBACK FOOT SAVER SHOES Bach Fugue Recital in Preparation Jacques Jolas to Be Heard in Two-Piano Recital With Seroff Jacques Jolas, Cornell college faculty member and concert pianist, who recently was presented in recital at a meeting of the Mason City Woman's club is -,'orking with Victor Seroff young Russian who has been an unofficial spectator at several European revolutions, in preparation for a series of two-piano recitals of Bach's "Supreme Art o£ the ^ugue." The initial invitational performance was given Thursday afternoon at the Cornell college ihapel. Late in March, Jolas and Seroff will appear in Steinway hall, New York City. No Shooting Here Mr. Seroff came to the United States because he wanted to live where there was no shooting. He thinks that Americans don't appreciate either their country or iheir freedom. He was born in Batoum, a border town between Russia and Turkey on the Black :ea. With the coming of the revolution when he was 17, he left. He uad studied music in Russia and continued his studies in Paris, Berlin and Vienna. He played with the Mozart orchestra at Salzburg, and while there was given permission to live in two of the 300 rooms in Castle Klessheim near Salzburg. Bats and Bicycle As companions, he had thousands of bats which infested the deserted castle. He could not touch them because the castle was the setting _for Max Reinhart's production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and Reinhardt needed the bats. He used a bicycle to ride through the castle. Seroff and Jolas met several years ago and later Seroff heard Jplas in a radio recital and liked his interpretations. He wrote to him concerning their joint presentation of the Bach work. In January the pair met in New York, training for several days and about a fortnight ago Seroff came to Mount Vernon.

Anniversary of Scouting Is Occasion Peggy Heneman to Be Honored on Sunday Afternoon at Monroe Mason City Girl Scouts will participate in the nationwide observance Sunday of the twenty- seventh anniversary o£ scouting in the United States in a special manner. While more than half a million American Girl Scouts are doing honor to the memory of their founder, Juliette Low, l o c a l Scouts, leaders, parents and friends will meet at the Monroe school at 3 o'clock Sunday to honor Miss Peggy Heneman \vho will receive her golden, eaglet award at that time. Miss Heneman who is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Heneman, 32 Vermont a v e- nue southeast, also has the distinction of having been selected by the local council to represent the covered wagon region of which Mason City is a part, to receive [he Juliette Low memorial award. This award provides for attendance next summer at "Our Chalet" in Switzerland international meet- ng place of Girl Scouts and Girl guides for all nations. Xast of Eaglets Since the adoption of the new program does not provide for special individual awards to Girl Scouts, Miss Heneman will be the last Girl Scout in Mason City to receive the golden eaglet award. Mrs. G. S. C. Andrick, local Girl Scout commissioner, has extended an invitation to all persons interested in Scouting to attend this ceremony Sunday. Tea will follow. Throughout the--day and the following week small and large groups o£ American Girl Scouts ivill meet, with programs varying from fancy dress parties to formal receptions with many important guests. They will all be celebrating the twenty-seventh anniversary of the day the late Juliette ("Daisy") Gordon Low of Savannah, Ga., organized the first troop of Girl Scouts in this country. Tales of Mrs. Low Wherever Girl Scouts, old or young, meet on their birthday anniversary, tales of Mrs. Low will brighten the parties, just as she did in person wherever she appeared. Stories of her tremendous vitality, her wit and humor, her capacity for making friends, and in her perseverance in getting the Girl Scout movement firmly launched in the United States, will be told and dramatized. Many of the most amusing stories about Mrs. Low.come from the time she lived in England. The coming visit of the king and queen of England will serve to revive some of these tales which have been told many times and will probably be treasured by Girl Scouts forever. Provoke Miss Daisy One of the most popular anecdotes tells of the apprehensions of Eliza Hendry, colored cook in the Gordon family for 20 years. When she heard that "Miss Daisy" was going to marry an Englishman and live "way off in a furrin country Bunder a queen," Eliza shook her head mournfully and said, "I sure hope that 'ere queen ain't gwine pervoke Miss Daisy, 'cause if she do, Miss Daisy sure gwine give her a piece of her mind." Another tale has to do with Mrs. Low's presentation to Queen Victoria at Buckingham Palace, shortly after she and Mr. Low were married. At that time Mrs. Low wrote to members of her family in this country that "the road to court is not a path of roses." She described in great detail the elaborate plans for her presentation and the great crowds at the palace on the eventful day. On Her Bustle "There was such a crowd that it took from 3 to 6 o'clock to walk through seven rooms," she wrote. "I used what few wits I possessed to keep my clothes on my back and myselt on my legs. "Of course, everyone was X'ery sorry to crowd and push and everyone apologized continually and it apparently couldn't be avoided, but my train, weighed tons and my bouquet pounds. I disposed of the bouquet by perching it on the bustle o£ the lady in front of me and, quite unconscious of the Young Mothers . . .
