Vtorningside Students in Music Event )oy Baker and James Vandersall Present Pleasing String Recital. \ recital of an unusual character ·as presented Tuesday evening in the music hall under the sponsor- hip of the High School Music moth- rs The artists were both students rom Morningside college, Sioux City and played the extremes in ize 'of the violin family. They were Doy Baker of Mason City, playing the bass viol, and James Vandersall Spencer, violinist. The playing of Doy Baker, who was rated as the outstanding bass riol player ever produced in the le- al schools, was another case of a. musician trained in the Mason City school returning and winning applause. He played his large instrument with excellent techmc, fine tone and effective interprtation, surprising many of his listeners with the cello-like smoothness of his presentations. Plays With Finish. Mr Vandersall, who is concert- meister of the Sioux City symphony, although young, has studied the violin extensively. He has played with the Chicago symphony. His numbers were presented with remarkable finish. Particularly was his playing ot the first movement of Beethoven s 'D Major concerto" outstanding. Both of the students accompanied each other on the piano m solos. Mr Baker also played a piano solo, "tiebestraum" »y Liszt Having attracted much attention for his obviously fine quality work with the hi°-h school band and orchestra, the CMC orchestra for three years and the Mason City municipal band two years, Mr. Baker's appearance was of special interest. While in high school he received national championship rating as bass viol soloist. Puts Warmth in Number. In "Reverie" by Bottesini, a notable number for bass solo, Mr. Baker did an outstanding piece 01 work, putting into this slow moving selection much warmth and feeling. Several other groups of numD.eis were played by the two students, who were heard by an appreciative though not large, audience. Several ther appearances have been sched- ed by the two musicians on a tour. Conditions in Europe .s Melinda Alexander Contrasts trast between the men of the British parliament and the United States congress. England has a great advantage scholastically in choosing men to represent her. A high value is placed on public service and you will never find a person advocating the election of a political candidate because he is an honest man and a good scout. Madam President'.' "As a result of the feminist movement in England and a growing- sense of responsibility for what happens among the women m this country, we "may see a woman in the white house some day. There is no social trend in Europe comparable to the one in America which European Liabilities, to U. S. Values. Contrasting the condition's in Europe with the security and comfort which the United States offers its citizens Miss Melinda Alexander spoke on "Social Trends in Europe" at the last general meeting of the Woman's club Tuesday afternoon at the First Methodist church. Describing a trip which she made to Russia with a commission which included Rexford Tugwell, Jerome Davis and other "alleged economists," Miss Alexander said that she went with the hope that she WIFE PRESERVERS A little cinnamon, preferably in the stick, or thin slices of lemon or orange peel give a delicious flavor when cooked with dried fruits. she went wun toe uypu mni. »·-- a j,j e t o [ ne on e in Amenta wm." might be able to agree that in Rus- allows women in public bars, nor sia was the greatest sociological ex- dQ Eul . opearl W0 mcn smoke as much periment since the American revo- . _ .-- ...,,--,,,, TV,O,-^ i« nn - luuuo Destrov America. "We had our first initiation' into communism at Warsaw where we were met by officials of the government, people eager to destroy the American way of life, who had never been to America and were exhaustively equipped with ignorance and people who bad never been able to acquire the things which have been acquired under the American system. They entertained us with their best, which was startling in its degree of mediocrity. "From the standpoint of propaganda nothing is more artfully done than the museum which houses a collection of instruments used to torture political prisoners under the tsars. I tried to get into the political prisons of today, but my permit was not delivered to me until I was at the station about to leave. Interviewed Trotsky. "Our commission interviewed Trotsky just before his downfall. He had furnished the brains for the revolution and organized the red army, but Stalin who is anxious to have everyone else divide up property is not willing to share any power.

MARY MORTON Menu Hint 3aked Ham Scalloped Potatoes pickled Apricots Buttered Asparagus Rhubarb Pie Coffee or Tea You can first parboil, then boil our ham until tender, then .bake until brown. Or you can bake it m a low oven for the whole time. This efers either to a whole or part ot a ham. Allow at least half an hour baking for each pound of meat. Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, then put the ham in, covered and bake it at this heat, not leaders . ower than 300, until about an hour before it should be done. Then uncover stick whole cloves in and cover' with a mixture of brown sugar and dry mustard. Put again in Sie oven uncovered, to brown. You can parboil the ham first if you think it may bee too salty. Today's Recipes. Scalloped Potatoes. -- Peel and thinly slice raw potatoes into a but. tered casserole. Heat sufficient muk to cover the potatoes, and melt two tablespoons of butter in it. Season potatoes with salt and pepper or paprika, cover with hot milk and butter, sprinkle with bread or cracker crumbs or crumbled corn flakes, and,bake for three-fourths of an hour. Pickled Apricots.--One cup large dried apricots, one cup sugar, three tablespoons vinegar, twelve whole cloves, one-fourth teaspoon mustard seed stick cinnamon. Wash apricots, place in saucepan and cover with water. Boil gently for 10' minutes. Add other ingredients and cook until apricots are tender but keep their shape. Let stand in syrup until ready to use as a garnish for nam. "There is a great determination to industrialize Russia and bring it up to the standards of the United States. Russia is to be conjured with because it is a great reservoir of natural resources. It represents one-sixth of the earth's surface and houses 146 millions of population. The regimentation there will produce results, not for the people, but for the men who control the government and are imposing their will upon the people. Charming Speech. "We interviewed Kalinin, president of the soviet, a simple and harmless soul, who in a charming speech, delivered to us the blackest indictment of democracy I have ever heard. I waited for the learned college professors in our group to answer him and when they did not, I asked permission to speak and told him that Russia and the United States are comparable on two points only. They both occupy large territories and these are presumably inhabited by human beings. In the United States the people possess those civil instrumentalities by the use of which they can correct any abuses of which they have just cause to complain. "In Russia there is no free press. Private property, sanctity of contract and the right to be secure do not exist in Russia, nor are they in the contemplation of any of the uv* ijw.j.jpcan as American women. There is no such thing as the freedom between the sexes which attains here Where will it lead us? We don't know. "In Europe, women have never had the opportunity to do what we regard as commonplace. There is no club hysteria and no suffrage. They are not feminists as we know here. There is no opportunity for expression. They are still doing things the way their great great trrandmothers did them. They have been sent back to the kitchens and to child bearing by dictators who complain of over population in one moment and seek an increased birth rate in the next. Standard of Living. "In Germany 95 per cent of the families live on less than $100 a month. Our standard of living is double that of Great Britain. No country has ever had so much of what everyone wants as the United States. "If we could give a small part ot the time which we devote to adverse criticism to constructive economy, we would find ourselves pos sessed of abundance. We encouragi political termites to eat away the underpinnings of democracy. W should conserve, instead of destroy the values of democracy. "If the American people coul understand that here the individua is capable .of self- government, i sovereign in his own right, and tha our form of government is an in strument of the people, we woul better interpret the things wine? have been happening in Europe. Th ·Teat trend is to make the govern ment the great 'I AM' and the indi vidual is of no consequence. Huma life stands for nothing. We shoul Seniors to Give Play Sunday at St. Joseph Hal!

Critical Position. "Germany is in the most critical position of any country in the world today. No two nations present a greater contrast than Germany and Russia. The schools of Germany to which our scholars _ went to complete their education have now become schools of propaganda for the national social workers party. "When Hitler was made chancellor in 1934, an internal policy was Convention Planned by Wa-Tan-Yes Two Delegates Elected by Club for Meeting Here May 17-19.

Now thousands of Jewish people are held in concentration camps and thousands of German people who could not tolerate the persecution are also in such camps. Hallmark of Virtue. Following the war. the German nation enjoyed a period of rest and the hallmark of virtue was set upon them, causing many Americans to shell out to the tune of two million dollars to finance German enterprises. Germany realized that she could not fulfill the terms of the Versailles treaty and when our help was withdrawn, she was unable to pay. It is my opinion that Hitler would not be in the arrogant position which he occupies "today, if it were not for the second magnanimous gesture in the moratorium. In France the people have never known the economic security which we have known for years. The little which they have, they conserve. The trend socially is that the home life be uninterrupted by outside influences. The greatest compliment they can pay you is to invite you into their home. 3 Great Democracies. 'Another World war will sec the break up of old forms of government. The miracle is that the three great democracies have come out of the last war with the same ideals they had oh entering it.
