For their marks of 94 and 95, which were 16 marks ahead of their nearest competitor, the choir is taking home three silver cups which have never before left Britain. Operatic Singer To Sing in Film Marion Talley, Tired of Retirement. Will Make Picture By Mary Moffitt (Copyright, 1936. by The North American Newspaper Alliance, lnc.l HOLLYWOOD Do success stories have sequels? Evidently they do for Marion Talley, Ten years ago. at the age of 19, she was the marvel of the musical i world, the youngest prima donna in the history of the Metropolitan ! Opera company. I Today, at 29. she is simultaneously ; starting two new careers the radio, ' with a 26-week contract, on a na-; tional program, and the movies. She ha dieted down to 110 pounds, she has learned how ts paste on the artificial eyelashes of a movie star. I But although Marion Talley has changed her outward appearance most startlingly, underneath she hasn't changed a bit. She is still the . intensely practical girl of 10 years ago. The Metropolitan Opera company was unable to turn her head. A year in Hollywood hasn't done it, ; either. Careful With Money "T have always bern careful with my money," Miss Talley said. "I have tried to make good investments and to keep it. When I retired in 1929. I knew that I had made enou-rh money to support me ' for the rest of my life. I had no idea of ever singing professionally aea'n. The money isn't gone. But I find that I want to work." When Marion was 16 years old she studied in New York for a year and a half, and was auditioned by the Metropolitan. But here she got her first setback. The "Met" was encouraging, but insisted on further study in Europe. In less than a year ; Mrs. Glen Barker A.T.CM.

Debut at 19 At 39. the plump, childish singer made her debut. That was February 17, 1926. She was a tremendous success, both as a singer and as a personality. Miss Talley sang with the Metropolitan Opera during the season from 1926 to 1929. Then she an-brought another storm of conjecture. Had she been refused a renewal? Was her voice too cold for ! the public? Wasn't she satisfied with j the money she had received? ) "The fact still remains that I retired because I wanted to," says Marion Talley. "I was not very happy in the midst of all the ex-I citement of being famous. I had made and saved a good deal of money. So I wanted to stop. I bought a 1.600-acre wheat ranch in western Kansas. That brought about a lot of ridiculous comment too. People seemed to believe that I was a simple farm maiden, who couldn t be happy away from the plough. Of course, I never intended farming it myself. I bought it as an investment. I never lived there. "And." she says proudly, "It has been an investment. It has paid a profit every year but one." After her retirement. Miss Talley confesses that she went right on working hard at her music. Among her teachers was Adolph Eckstrom. They were married March 23, 1935. Roderick V. Cook L.R.S.M.

Feel That First Effort, Has Produced Fine Results ! First annual convention of the western Canada music teachers has shown, without doubt, that there are no petty jealousies and that music teachers can get together and discuss their problems with the same clear impartiality as other professions. Thus did Mrs. O J. Walker, vice-president of the Federation of Music Teachers' associations sum up her impressions of the recent convention held in Vancouver, at which she was an AlberU delegate. As her co-deiegate Mrs. Walker had Mrs. T. Winslow Hamilton, president of the Alberta Music Teachers' association. Both returned recently to the city. Drawing as it did an attendance of nearly 400 teachers from the four ' western provinces, the delegates felt, j said Mrs. Walker, that this first venture has been an unqualified sue-, cess. "It was a success financially, too. which Is most surprising," she ad- : flea. Answers Address ; Mrs. Walker answered Cie ad-; dress of Mayor G. G. McGeer of j Vancouver at the commencement of the convention and while doing so ' stressed the advantages of such a meeting. "After attending the convention j I feel certain that we shall i some day reach our ultimate goal, that of making the federation a professional society such I as that maintained by lawyir; and doctors," said Mrs.. Walker. The papers and general discussions which ; took place had been of inestimable benefit to the delegates, she said. Teachers from the west are able to hear discussed the very problems which have been their own for many years and in many cases nere able to hear how these same difficulties have been met and overcome by others," she continued. Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Hamilton were leaders of the discussion on teachers' pensions. "We were able to see that there is a great deal lacking in this respect and that only by continued effort in union can we ever place the music profession on on the same basis as that of other professions. School Work Discussion of music in relation to school work was especially interesting, said Mrs. Hamilton, who stated that the teachers all felt that every effort should be made to bring about a closer relationship between the Madame Duggan Teacher of Voice Studio: Alberta College Phone 21464 Service Qualified Teachers Teachers of Music at Alberta College have been selected because of the high standard of their qualifications and of their ability to impart their knowledge to students.

Guest at the convention included musicians from some of the western states, said Mrs. Hamilton. "They were most congratulatory of the work done by the western Canadian provinces." Invited to State Among these visitors was C. W. Kantner, principal of the Washington state school of music who extended a warm Invitation to the Canadian delegates to attend the music teachers' convention to be held next year. He felt, said Mrs. Hamilton, that many of the problems of the music teachers are the same on either side of the international boundary and much could be learned by an Interchange of ideas.
