IA JUST ARRIVED A NEW SHIPMENT OF BANQUET DRESSES IN ORGANDIE AND SILK CLOSING OUT ALL SILK DRESSES LADIES' COATS and SWAGGER SUITS at HALF PRICE Z E B K E R ' S 121 SOTJTH FEDERAL LARGE CROWD AT CONCERT BY H. S BAND, ORCHESTRA Much Improvement Noted a Players Prepare for National Meets. The crowd which packed the higi school auditorium Wednesday nigh for a the high schoo band and orchestra was convince of the sincere desire of the youth ful musicians and their director Carleton L. Stewart, to make impressive showing in national com petition. This concert, the thin number of the Civic Music associa tion series, the Music Mothers' clu assisting, was enthusiastically re ceived. Although satisfied with the pro gress that the groups have made at far, Mr. Stewart stated afterwarc that the musicians would have ti mprove considerably more befon the orchestra contest at Ottawa Kans., and the band contest at De Moines if they wish to make sue cessful rankings. Encouraged by the favorable comments of local person: and groups of visitors from De: Moines, Waterloo, Hampton and Northwood, the musicians are plan ning on consistent, studied prac tices before national competition. FJay With Precision. In the orchestra, improvemen over a concert presented earlier in the school year was particularly no ticeable. The string section worked with precision. This was equally tru in the first and second violin sec tions, violas, cellos and basses. Tone quality of the entire orchestra was rich and.resonant. Miss Marjorie B Smith is the instructor of the strings. The orchestra played the second movement from the "Nordic Symphony" by Hanson, which is tht. national required number for class A orchestras. Opening with rich passages of the strings, the other section of the orchestra were brought in colorfully. The orchestra also played the national selective number, the first movement from the "Italian Symphony" by Mendelssohn, a sparkling piece requiring much technic which the players handled ably. Melodies Are Familiar. Selections from "Naughty Marietta" by Herbert included many melodies with which local audiences are familiar. Outstanding io this was the violin cadenza and solo played by Annibel Wilhite, concert- meister of the orchestra.-"Rakoczy' march, "Naila," an intermezzo by Jtoses-Tobani were also played by the orchestra. Everything that the band played was distinctly individualistic, from the marches to the heavy contest pieces. Much rewriting of the parts of the band, as well as the orchestra, by Mr. Stewart greatly increased the effectiveness of the numbers. Extreme delicacy of rapid tonguing was displayed by the band In "Phaeton" by Saint-Saens, a symphonic poem, which is the national selective number. Also brilliant was the playing of "In Springtime" overture by Goldmark, the national required number for class A bands. AH Sections Good. Improvement to a degree of fine playing rarely attained by high school musicians was evidenced in :he French horn and double reed sections. Because of the even excel- ence of all departments of the jand, all of the finer points were brought out with polish. "Cabins," an American Rhapsody Gillette, was richly descriptive. Melvin Decker played a saxophone solo in this number, first with clar- net chord harmony and later the harp. Rollicking humor was contained in "Circus Parade" by Yoder, which pictured the various musical oups in a passing parade. "Vanished Army" march by Al- : ord and "Sons of the Desert" bv Kline were marches played with unusual style. Orris Herfindahl, solo clarinetist in the band, directed the organization in opening chorus. A sight reading demonstration was also well given by the band.
