TEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 30 1936 LISTENERS ARE ENCHANTED BY CHAMBER MUSIC PROGRAM Civic String Ensemble in Presentation Mrs. Weston, Miss Van Ness Mr. Larson Soloists on Program. The delicate cadenza of a violin, rippling arpeggios by a harp and then the sonorous chords from string quartet and piano, providing a fitting introduction for a beautiful soprano solo--these were characteristics of one of the numbers Wednesday night in a concert in the Civic orchestra series. The concert, 'presented by the Civic string quartet, was one of de-. lightful variety and marked a high point in programs given by local talent. Each of the artists participating in this chamber music recital gave an admirable performance. Enthusiastic applause was accorded by the crowd which beard the concert in the high school auditorium. Ensemble Number. The high point in Uie program ·tvas reached in the concluding group which the artists presented as an ensemble, forming a well balanced combination with each feeling the same rich interpretation of the numbers. Participating in this were the string quartet. Miss Marian Van Ness, harpist; Mrs. Morris Laird, pianist, and Mrs. B. Raymond Weston, the soprano soloist. Four Indian love lyrics by Amy Woodford Finden were presented by this group, which injected the full coloring, effective interpretation and fine delicate phrasing embodied in the characteristic numbers. They were "Temple Bells," "Less Than the Dust," "Kashmiri Song" and " 'Til I Awake." The instrumentalists subjected themselves individually to a harmonious whole so that an exceptional accompaniment was furnished for the soloist. Single Instrument. Over this background of rich harmony, soared the sweet voice of Mrs. Weston, providing just the right quality to make musical perfection and completeness. Members of the string quartet, who played as a single instrument for a oneness of melody, were J. M. Power, the director of the Civic orchestra, first violin; Joe Manning, second violin; Dr. G. W. Cady, viola. . and Mrs. J. M. Power, cello. The first number was Mozart's "Quartet No. 17" in three movements, which wag played with finish. Next on the program'were four solos by Mrs. Weston. Sung with spirit and warm feeling, these included "Hills of Gruzia" by Medni- koff, "The Unforseen" by Cyril WIFE PRESERVERS to fry or brown Scott, "In the Luxembourg Gardens" by Kathleen Lockhart Manning and "A Feast of Lanterns" by Granville Bantock. Mrs. Laird was her accompanist. Oscar Larson, concertmeister of the civic orchestra, played two solos brilliantly. These were "Rondo" by Mozart-Kreisler and "Nocturne in D Major" by Shopin-Wilhelmj. The accompaniment was played by Mrs. Larson. This was followed by three familiar melodies played by the quartet, doing certain portions with mutes for unusual effect. Miss Van Ness played two harp solos with excellence of technic and remarkable i n t e r pretation. "Mazurka" by Schueckcr was followed by "Pensiero Affetuoso" by Palloni, both of which were played with great merit. There is one remaining eor.C'jrt on the Civic orchestra series, which will be announced soon.

Federation Finds Many Iowa Poets Poetry Proves to Be Art Which Flourishes m State. Poetry has been proved a flourish, ing art and Iowa the residence and inspiration of a great number of poets, according' to the results of the recent state poetry contest sponsored by Mrs. Paul Ackley of Ottumwa, vice chairman of the poetry division of the Iowa Federation of Women's clubs, and conducted by the nine district poetry chairmen, who arc Mrs. Sadie Seagrave of Oakdale; Mrs. Cliff Baxter of Davenport; Mrs. Lou Mallory Luke of Hampton; Miss Marg-uerjte Hoffman of Rockford; Mrs. O. P. Trautwein of Ottumwa; Miss Marguerite Code of Des- Moines; Mrs. Paul Millhone of Clarinda; Mrs. Cecil Lewis of Britt, and Mrs. J. F. Wadhams of Sioux City. In the fourth district division of the poetry contest, conducted by Miss Hoffman, the quality and quantity of the poems submitted made it an extremely difficult task for the various sets of judges to select the winners in the adult and high school classes, but recent reports disclose that the winner of the adult class was Dr. Clarence Edwin Flynn, pastor of the First M. E. church in Mason City, with honorable mentions going to Ruth Morrison Fullerton, Rockford, Iowa, Jennie Orr Leui, Postville. Esther A. Webb, Northwood, and Frances Clark Wolcott, Manchester. High School Division. The winner of the fourth district high school division was Evelyn Severson, Randalia, with honorable mentions going to Lillian Krueger of Elgin. Violetta Sauer of Winthrop, Dora Lee Belding, Waucoma, Elsie Belknap, Randalia, and Edwin Davif of Volga. Fourth district prizes were two anthologies of British and American Verse with preface by Christopher Morley. Other district winners in the adult class were Isabelle Lear of Dewitt, Elinore Lee White of Iowa City, Odelia Best of Ottumwa, Ella Luick of Belmond, Muriel E. Swarts of Cedar Falls, J. B. Lyon of Denison, Gernie Hunter of Perry, and Adelaide C. Pratt of Sioux City. Other district high school winners were Julia A. Grant of Marengo, Mary E. Lacock of Tipton, Margaret Kirbach of Algona, Patricia O'Riley of Prescott, and Alicia Melgaard of Sioux City. Poetry Clothesline. Much statewide interest was exhibited in the poetry clothesline displays at the nine district conven- liong and at county meetings. Mrs. Worthington Smith of Des Moines, state poetry chairman, who s compiling "Flame on the Hills," a forthcoming Iowa anthology of women's poetry, has announced that because of the enthusiastic promotion of poetry by the nine district chairmen, the number of poems submitted for this book was twice as many (over 2,000), as were submitted for consideration for the last federation anthology, "Silk of the rn.'' The Iowa Authors' club will celebrate national poetry week with a May festival in Des Moines, May 29, at Drake university, and 'the nine district poetry chairmen are to be in the receiving line and furnish part of the program. Mrs. Hiram Hough- ion, Jr., president of the I. F. W. C., will announce the decision of the judges in the poetry contest, and Reginald Martin will present the two state winners on the air.

BAKED BY Diamond Silver Cup Bread Bakers ASK FOR GENUINE Honeq KuMhed Educator Likes Work Books for Use in Schools By GAJKRV C. MYEKS, PH. D. Child Training Expert. During the last decade there has appeared a relatively new type of teaching material--the work book. The idea seems to have been bor rowed partly from the work sheet of the school shop, and partly from the lessons of the correspondence school. The usual work book is inexpensive, bound in paper, and is perishable. The content is such that the learner directs himself in most instances, and does his work right in the book. Whereas most work books merely supplement the regular text books, a few aim to supplant the usual text. Some, indeed, almost wholly take the place of the teacher, and truly can be called self- teaching. Direct His Learning. Similar materials are put up in packets, all aiming- to help the child direct his own learning and work at his own speed. A good many still, alas! suggest haste by setting time limits. They, we hope, will eventually disappear. Parents can, by providing their children with such self-helps, with the advice of the teacher, do much to bring up the child who has lagged in one or several subjects. Accordingly children may be able to go on with their class' while working on some of their arrears. Work books are enabling teachers to find more time for individual instruction and for helping students help themselves. I regret, however, that many a self- sacrificing teacher is buying such helps for her backward children, out of her own meager earnings. Thousands of dollars are spent by teachers in this way. While we admire their self-denials, we cannot approve their judgment. Book in Sunday School. Even Sunday school lesson quarterlies are incorporating some of the features of the work book. And how much more interesting 'to do some of such exercises than to listen to a sermon by the teacher! I happen to know something about work books, having edited a number of them in the days when work books were just appearing on the horizon. I am also co-author of work books in arithmetic and algebra, among the first in those subjects. This year a work book appeared for 'teen age students entitled "Personal Efficiency and Citizenship," of which I am the "other author." On this subject several good work books have recently been brought out by as many publishers. "My Life Book," by Neal Stoddard and L. A. Waehler, principal of Central high school, Madison, Wis., being one of the best. MAKJOKIE GAMBLE HOSTESS AT PARTY Miss Marjorie Gamble entertained a group of friends at her home at a bridge party.
