The concert was under the man igement'of William Arthur Calhoun, ireanist - choirmaster of thatchusch, who has gained some distinction by reason of the fact that years ago, down South, he was the first mu sic teacher ty - instruct Roland Haves, the world famous Nesrro tenor.

Mr. White has been awarded a fellow - shin by the Rosenwald Foundation which provides funds for doing this special music work. ' .Two novelties were played by Mr. White a Beethoven Sonata, Op. 30, Ko. 2, and a Ballade in C Minor by Coleridee - Tavlor. The Sonata is work of. massive proportions, and it was. played with authoritative force. The Ballade, rich in colorful . harmonics, with a .background of strik ing and compelling. .chords .in. the ac companiment . hai Jtot - ben ' heard here before, or at. least, not to the knowledge of this reviewer, and carries with it all of the compelling beauty and - attractiveness so characteristic of - the work of the great Anjio - Af nean composer. A group of lighter numbers .by Sinding, Albenii. - Massenet. ' and Thome, with a half - dozen of Mr. White's own compositionsj. were the other offerings, Qf the latter group consisted of a Spiritual.

His work, however, was sadly marred by the pianist, Mrs. Carrie Simmons, who did not seem able to merge her individuality into that of the singer in the playing of his accompaniments. It would add much to her work if she would develop a more sympathetic and subordination interpretation.

The singers always managed to intro auce inaiviaual atmosphere into their songs. . Their special rendering of Psalm 121 had austerity and dignity; thoughts of warm, sunny coiion lanas arose when they sang tarry me back to Old Virgmny," and romance came with their Brahmns' 'Lullaby' " The Daily Telegram said: "The Kentucky Singers won great favor on tne occasion of their first appearance here in Queen's Hall. . . . . Whether the scale of tone adopted, from an imposing forte to a mere murmur of sound, the timbre invariably had that peculiar kuavuy associated wun tne negro singer, ao many purely musical virtues had these performances that one was apt to resent the ac tion andgesture indulged in by (be soloist in certain of the ditties. Ostensibly these dubious aids were introduced for the purpose of cre ating atmosphere. "Their rhythm, in particular, is extraordinarily fine, giving, for example, great precision to the staccato manner of 'Daniel' and imparting irresistible impulse to Ezekiel saw de wheel.' "The Kentucky Singers are, in snort, a most capable group so long as they reproduce the sim plicity of their racial tunes, and do not aim at the rather superhcial effects to which their prowess sometimes tempted them. It is recalled by this reviewer that on the occasion of his first hearing this group sing, that he deprecated strongly the injection of minstrel antics and gyrations into the singing of Spirituals by Augustus bimons, one of the second tenors, as referred to by the London Telegram. The eight men composing the group are J. Arthur Gaines and Robert Caver, first tenors: Hinton Tones and Augustus Simons, sec ond tenors; William Veasay and Frank Riley, first bassos: Arthur ("Strut") Payne and V.

Mr 'Elam disclosed a voice with many pleasing dualities, bandied with skillful effect, but this re viewer, not having the printed characterization before him, would not classify the singer as a tenor.

However that may be, it can be safely set down that Mr. Elam is a young singer of much promise, and that the future ought to bring rich and rare results. Some of his hearers classed it as one of the best recitals of the season, and this may not be considered as altogether too enthusiastic. His offerings were reecived with appreciative interest by a goodly audience of discriminating musical taste, and the singer was compelled to respond with several en cores. His program included 16th cen tury airs by Purell, "When I am laid in earth" and "I attempt from love's sickness to fly"; "My lovely Celia" by Lar Wilson: "Come and trip it" by Handel; French songs by Hue, DeFontenailles and Vi - dal; a group of Kussian songs by Rahmaninoff, and a group of Spirituals by Dett and Burleigh. When the singer rendered Dett's "I'm so glad trouble don't last alway," the applause neessitated the risineof Dr. Nathaniel Dett, who has just returned from a tour of Europe with the Hampton Singers, and who was in the aud ience, to rise and bow his response.

It is' a marvelous sign of the times that there is a vast stir among most of our people, a waking up from the lethargy and indifference of a state of servitude, an eager desire for learning and all of the accomplishments of polite society, a noble resolve to rise to a higher phase and wield a mightier power. Here lies our hope for the future. We shall not always be crushed to earth.. The blood that flows in our veins will grow warm and a new light will kindle in our eyes as we start climbing. The great leaders of the race have lifted up a high standard before us and happy are they who shall climb until they reach it. Some may contend than all cannot be leadersthat is true but all must admit that any may climb high in their endeavors, pluck the laureis tor which they are reahc ing, grasp the prize held out be - tore them and by their brilliant achievements have honor conferred upon their people and have their names written deep in history. wnere are our rising young women. You are needed now as never before. We call you to come torward. We bid you lift your eyes to the heights of knowledge and power. We point you to those whose names have become house hold words, and bid them press on to the front rank in the struggle ot lite. The lives of great men all remind us, We can make our lives sublime. And departing leave behind us footprints in the sands of time. A GOLDEN THOUGHT And beyond the dim unknown Standeth God behind the shadows Keeping watch above His own. LOWELL.

GOLDEN THOTS . Educate men without religion and you make them but clever dev ilsr - WEUNGTON. NEWS ABOUT WOMEN 3 Ruth R. Dennis, Editor ' BEAUTY AND HEALTH 1 By OLIVIA D. TUCKER. Pharmacist and Chemist Face powder had its origin in .k. A .... T. K. : I use at. an age when skin blemishes were very predominant. At that time any women who did not have a blemish was considered a beauty. Of course, they did not have the modern conveniences like those of today. Cold water, lack of an abundant supply of water might have also contributed to the presence of so many blemishes. Face powder then was used and is some times used now, to cover up blemishes, but the modern up - to - date girl to today uses powder to give the skin a smootne texture. Sometimes, especially on a hot day, by the appearance of the different faces that one meets on the avenue,, one is puzled as to just why such faces use face powder. Not only is the shade undesirable for appearance, but the enormous amount that is heaped upon the face, shows lack of choice in selection, extravagance in application and the loss of modesty in the feminine sex. In short, such a face is so conspicuous and puzzling, that one wonders whether such a character is a member of the Barnum and Bailey group. A wise selection in face powder does add to your personal appearance. It attracts. In some places French specialists are employed to make up your powder to order, to the exact shade of your ski. Such powder is usually very expensive: By the way, a few weeks ago, one of our nearby five - and - ten - cent stores had a specialist in make - up preparations, exhibiting this in 125th street. Face powders are of two kinds: fat and dry. The fat powder is called the heavy powder, and the dry is usaully spoken of as the light powder. Fat powders are known as cold cream powders.
