EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 28 1936 WOMAN'S CLUB HEARS TALK ON. ART OF GOOD LISTENING Mrs. Hathorn Speaker for Department Ruth and Allegra Swingen Present Piano Numbers at Meeting. Members of the Woman's club music department gathered at the Y. W. C. A. Monday evening for a lecture on "The Art of Appreciating Music" by Mrs. ,W. H. Hathorn, assisted by Miss Ruth Swingen and Miss Allegra Swingen, pianists. In beginning her talk, Mrs. Hathorn spoke of the work which the Federation of Women's clubs has done in helping women to appreciate music. "People are more eager to see than to hear," she said. "They live in a closed room and we are trying to open doors for them. The pioneers had to leave culture behind them when they came out west to settle this country. Now We are catching up with culture." Alive to Rhythm. Mrs. Hathorn told of the folk music of this country, pointing out that we have no national music because we are a polyglot nation. "All music is founded on rhythm, melody and harmony," she said. "Rhythm appeals to the foot listeners. The world is alive to rhythm and when we fall out of rhythm, it is detrimental to us. Melody makes a pattern of music and harmony helps fill out the pattern. "Anyone can have fun listening to music, but it is more fun when you know the rules. There is a deepening interest in music now. The coming generation is organized into rhythm bands in the kindergarten and taught to play instruments in school but it is only since 1910 that tfiere has been any public school music. The idea that people ought to know something about music is a recent one. To enjoy life is to .appreciate the things that are a part of life. Musical Intcllecutals. "The minnesingers and troubadours went from northern Spain and southern France over Europe and their songs changed according to the character of the people whom they visited. Later came the musical intellectuals of the world who founded absolute music which needs no title or explanation, but depends on pattern for its appeal. The sonata "is a composition for one instrument with the pattern remaining the same throughout. The concerto is the same, written for two instruments and the symphony for many instruments. "After the period of classic-music came the reformers who brought in the romantic period in which suites, noctournes, serenades and songs without words were written. We should be tolerant of modem To Wed in May Miss Beulah Woodworth, daughter of Mrs. L. L. Woodworth, 807 Twelfth street northeast, and Bernard J. Logan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Logan of Dougherty, have set May 6 as the date for their wedding which will take place at the Holy Family church. Miss Woodworth, a graduate of the Rudd high school and Hamiltons and has been employed at the Humphrey Finance company. Mr. Logan was graduated from the Dougherty high school and Hamilton's and is employed in the office of the Lehigh Cement plant. They will make their home for the summer at Clear Lake. {Photo by Russell) music and listen to it. If it is good, it will live and if not, it will sluff off. Ruth Swingen played two hymns indicating the difference between those of the early church and the type sung today. "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" and a modern Sunday school hymn were used to il- ustrate this. Allegra Swingen ilayed "The Village Musician" by ?toye, demonstrating the style of the old folk dance, and "Sonata in D Major" by Haydn. In the latter number she played the main theme and the subordinate theme of the irst movement, before playing the selection through. "Impromptu in A Flat Major" by Schubert and "Song Without Words" by Mendelssohn were layed by Allegra Swingen and 'Spozlozie" by Lizst and "The Sunken Cathedral" by Debussy by Ruti Swingen. The program was concluded by Allegra Swingen who played the Charlie Chaplin number from "The Hollywood Suite" by Cadman. LUCKY LINDY CLUB PLANS MEETING Mr. and Mrs. J. H.

Schroeder, general business course; Catherine R. Barnes and Neal E. Kimm, executive secretarial course, and Merlin L McGowan, administrative accounting course. " The present is ever slipping into the past--as rapidly as it emerges from the future,'" Mr. Cram quoted from Schleiermacher, advising the ·raduates to appreciate fully the thought that all heaven holds for them and all the earth holds for them is within them and that it is what is within them, acting constantly upon what is without that makes them what they are. .No More Alibis. "There isn't any use in laying your troubles on the shoulders of jthers. There isn't any use in making alibis or starting sentences with 'if It doesn't go with those who have the guidance of others. Feelings that seem to be forced on us are our own free doings. Throughout all be ever mindful of your inner self. Each man is made to represent humanity in his own way." "Isn't it strange that'no two faces are alike ? You know people by name. You know them because they belong there. You never get them mixed up Isn't it strange how little confusion there really is? They have been built into this great structure by their own natural powers from within. From our own selves, we get that material upon which we build-that upon which v ou are building is yours. It is unique. I have no way to tell whether the smell of that red rose smells the same to you. We are certainly unique beings. We are lonesome. We live our own lives. We build not from that which comes rrom without, but that which comes from within excepting that we are guided and nourished by others contributions. They hold up something to us that we need. "Each of us takes his place in the world and goes on from there little realizing or understanding the process. There is no force outside of us that can bring honesty, dependability, stability. I heard a definition of character which came from a man by the name of Fairbanks-to me it is a beautiful definition, 'Character is the sum total of the flowers that blossom in the garden of the human soul.'

This philosophy was given 200 years ago by Mr. Schlderma- cher and today it is true. 'Show me a man who is content with his material existence and I will show you a man who never has anything else but a-material existence.' Quoting again from Mr. Schleier- macher, he said, 'No power is ever lost unless you repress it within yourself and leave it.' Mr. Cram said leisure in his opinion is of three kinds. People who know what leisure ought to be used for, and use it for recreation; people who think of leisure as an opportunity to get away from the thing that they have been doing and do something else that is'equally worthwhile; people who do nothing during leisure hours --they dissipate their leisure time and come back to life's realities worse off than when they left them. Mr. Cram said, "Remember that the job you can do is very important. We couldn't get along without you. We are each one of us'impor- WCHARD SALON AVENUE.

"You are coming to your testing period--your pai'ents and friends are going to be proud of you. Mr". Cram closed with this last quotation from Mr. Schleiermacher, "Wherfor begin at once your life eternal in the constant contemplation of your own true being." SOCIAL CALENDAR TUESDAY T. N.

Triple D. club-- Holy Family Ladies Aid Gives Play "Johnny Grows Up" Provides Entertaining Evening for Audience. "Johnny Grows Up," comedy in three acts, presented Monday night in the high school auditorium by the Holy Family Ladies Aid, provided an entertaining evening; for those who attended it. The performance proved satisfactory evidence of Miss Bee Lynch's ability as a director and indicated the dramatic talents of members of the cast. The plot concerns the Stephens family who find their finances in a precarious condition because of the illness of Mr. Stephens, played by Ralph McCarron. Mrs. Stephens was portrayed toy Mrs. Tim Phalen and their children, Johnny, Betty and Gracie, were done by Boh Callahan, Mrs. Victor Glass and Margaret Fritz.

McCann appeared as the kindly Dr. Bates who helps the family out of its difficulties. Dennis Cross was Roger McCJain, Betty's admirer and Dorothea Hebel was his young sister. Louis Garfin appeared .15 Ralph Johnson, a friend of John ny, and Mrs. Harry Neu was Mrs. Johnson. Others in the cast were Dorothy Harrer. Betty Lawson, Ina Mae Ivin, Roy Young and Bob Burgraff. When the Stephens children learn tli.-.'. their father is very ill and- m; .. go to California for his health, they muster their resources to come to the family's aid. Further complication is added by the fact that Johnny has borrowed $25 from Ralph Johnson, a friend. He will not tell what he used the money for, but insists that he will pay it back on the appointed day. Wins First Prize. The play ends happily when it is revealed that he bought coffee with the money to get coupons to use in entering a coffee slogan contest. He peddles the coffee to earn back the $25 so he can return it and then discovers that he has won 51,000, first prize in the contest, solving the family's financial problems. The members of the cast turned in satisfactory performances in every instance. The play was enlivened by a-tap dance by Dennis Cross and the singing of popular songs, 'with Ralph Geer as accompanist. Between acts Mickey Cross and i Bobby Carroll tap danced, accompanied by Mr. Geer, and Miss Kathryn Ann Knapp gave a dance number, accompanied by Jimmy Fleming. .;. .
