Get Yours Now "No Arguments in That Harmony," Says Director Local Musician Tells KGLO Listeners of "All Star" Singers After noting that noble and manly music invigorates the spirit, strengthens man and incites him to great and worthy deeds, Mauritz Lundholm, Mason City choral director and instrumentalist, told Vorth Iowa Forum listeners over KGLO Tuesday evening that he would*- like nothing more than to organize a double quartet this week embracing the following persons: Mussolini of Italy and Daladier of France for first tenors; Roosevelt of the United States and Chamberlain of England for second tenors; Hirohito o£ Japan and Hitler of Germany for baritones; and Horthy of Hungary .and Stalin of Russia for bass. Picks Their Sone The song they would sing," continued Mr.' Lundholm, "would be 'O Sacred Head Now Wounded.' . . . Can you imagine this picture? These eight great men standing together shoulder to shoulder, singing in harmony, and real harmony, giving the same interpretation to a great piece' of music. . . . "There would be no arguments in that harmony and do you know that this would make these men realize that man does not live by bread alone but that we must work together in harmony. After that choir rehearsal the power in sacred music would be known to the whole world." Music Brings Contentment Mr. Lundhqlm, who is organist and choir director of the First Presbyterian church, music director of the Hamilton School o£ Commerce and musician with the Vance Music company, said further: 'Show me a home wherein music dwells and I shall show you a happy, peaceful and contented family. And since, music has so much to do with moulding character, it is necessary that we teach it to our children. 1 The speaker asserted that there is strength in music, pointing to records which reveal that the type of music is as important as the type of medicine administered. Music for Allings "Purely brilliant music," he added, "has little or no value. Folk songs, simple classics, excerpts from operas have proved of most value. I have seen the effect of a beautiful hymn on a group in hospital. What we saw was weeping, but the doctor's comment was that it was a help because crying is just as good as laughing as long as tension is broken up. "Let's say for example that for mental tension we use the slow movements of Beethoven. For anemia arid paralysis this type of music is very helpful. But it must be simple, carefully selected Beethoven like the part ot a slow movement, from a sonata or symphony. As Important as Air "For the tubercular, out-of-door music is good; lor cripples, marches are good. Our hospitals would not be as crowded as they are if we could give all the patients plenty of music, for music is as necessary as fresh air." In closing, Mr. Lundholm, who has also been directing the music for the union candlelight services, declared that "Whenever there is good music there is harmony, and where there is harmony there are good citizens When music and courtesy are better understood and appreciated, there will be no more war.'
