OLD INSTRUMENT^- Dr. Archie Oscar Haugland, former North lowan on the faculty of Northern Illinois University, shows a Hardanger fiddle, a .Norwp.crian folk instrument he has included in a new musical score.

By JAMES K. OWENS North lowans and Southern Uinnesotans see growing needs at the junior college level that -ould be met through help of educational television, researchers found in studying area educational TV station possibilities. The junior college advantages vere among many benefits that area people believe could be feet. Former area man Uses ancient, modern styles in music score Sounds from medieval Scandinavia, the ancient church and the space age have been put together by a former North lowan for a new presentation of Henrik Ibsen's "Peer Gynt" play at Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, 111. The composer of the new score is Dr. A. Oscar Haugland of the university's music department. He is the son of Ellen Haugland, 117 4th NE, and a graduate of Thompson High School. A French horn player, his music degrees are a bachelor's degree from Drake University, master's degree from Northwestern University and doctorate from the University of Rochester's Eastman School of Music. The new "Peer Gynt" score is written for a 20-piece orchestra but calls for other than orchestral instrumentation at times. The production at the Illinois school is being held at 8 p.m. each evening through Saturday this week and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Dr. Haugland explains the incidental music as follows: "The musical score covers a very wide range of expression in keeping with the extremely diversified situations found in the play. Musical styles used range all the way from ancient Gregorian chant to contemporary 12-tone and aleatory techniques." By having an original composer creating original music, the production's dance and dramatic movements were collaborated between the choreographer, play director and composer. The music thus is in direct keeping with the action on stage. "The score contains selections for chamber orchestra, hymns and chants with organ, string quartet, harpsichord and piano. Also used are the Scandinavian folk instruments, 'lur' and solo Hardanger fiddle," Dr. Haug- iand said. The son of Norwegian immigrants, Dr. Haugland will play the large, trumpet-like 1 u r, while his wife will play the Har- danger fiddle in the production. A RE you one of the 26 million who voted for Barry Gpldwater? W. J. Eyster is one Mason Cityan who did and he's proud to say so. What's more, he's found quite a few Americans who share that opinion. Eyster is the sparkplug behind Alco Building and Supply Co., located on Route 1. He's come up with a plastic gimmick that identifies himself with his voting beliefs—and it's catching on across the country. It was a couple days after the election last month that Eyster. was conversing with a friend over coffee at the Green Mill. They were impressed by the fact that even in losing so overwhelming, Goldwater did win the votes of 26 million people. Goldwater loyalty runs deep as we know. "Why not," said Eyster to his companion, "capitalize on this and bring together all of us Goldwater supporters in a sort of a club?" Eyster took this self statement more as an order than a question. He went right to work. First off he contacted a plastics firm and requested a quantity of billford-size cards. He wanted red, white and blue colors with this simple inscription: "I'M ONE OF THE 26 MILLION. I VOTED FOR HIM ON NOV. 3RD1" There's a place for a person's, name. That's about it. Eyster next approached the Chicago Tribune, the nation's loudest trumpet of conservatism. He contracted for a modest advertisement which he hoped would be seen by others across the country who share his viewpoint. The ad told about the "I'm One of the 26 Million" cards and that they could be obtained for SI each by writing him at his Mason City address. That the ad reached the right persons can be proved by the deluge of mail that covers one of the desks at his business establishment. "The response has been tremendous," Eyster said enthusiastically. "It'll be days before I get caught up with the requests. They're coming in from all over the country." One woman in Shaker Heights, Ohio, sent $4 for four cards. He's had other in- 5t strictly was my own idea as a private citizen. The card makes no reference to any party or group." Eyster has been at it now for about two weeks. He had planned to place an ad in the National Observer, but it doesn't do color work. He insists that the next ad be in color so that the beauty of the card can be better illustrated, so now he's leaning toward the National Review. Eyster refuses to say just how many letters he's received because somebody else might be tempted to start a similar enterprise. He does not have a copyright. "However, I'm not getting rich off it. After all, it costs 26 cents to put up each card and to this must be added the cost of advertising, mailing, etc. And this thing isn't going to go on forever, you know." A native of Pennsylvania, Eyster came to Iowa about 10 years ago. "Off and on during my life I've thought of doing something like this. Now, for the first time, I've done it . . . and I'm glad." i.e said his interest in the Nor- vegian music has been one of ;athering information over the •ears. He added, "Our country hears cry little music from Scandi- lavian countries. That's why 'm involved in it as much as I The lur used in the production s a descendent of a bronze lur ating back to the Middle Ages, t is made of wood, bent to a onical shape and wrapped with jark. It is likely that its orig- nal use was for signals and ailing cattle. The lur has also ilayed an important role in the development of Scandinavian oik music. The Hardanger fiddle, on the 'ther hand, is the youngest of he essentially Norwegian folk nstruments. It developed into ts present form from 1550 to 650. The special feature of this in- itrument is a set of under- itrings beneath the usual set oi our strings found on violins. These ursdcr-strings vibrate sympathetically, producing droning effect similar to the sound of Scottish bagpipes or he ancient viola d'amore, to vhich it may be related. The shape of the Hardanger 'iddle differs from the ordinary violin. The neck is shorter anc Droader and the peg box longer :o make room for the extra pegs. It is ornately decoratec with silver and in-laid mother of-pearl around the edges anc on the finger board. R. Newberry funeral set for Friday The funeral for Robert George Newberry, 61, who died Tues day at his home OR Route 4 Mason City, will be at 1:30 p.m Friday at the Bethel Evangel cal United Brethren Church in Manly. The Rev. Harold W Dcllit will officiate. Preceding the funeral, a fam ly prayer service will be hek at the Hogan-McKee Colonia ihapel at 12:30 p.m. Mr. Newberry was born Sept 30, 1903, at Blakely, Pa., son o James and Hannah (Roberts Dewberry. He moved with hi; parents to a farm near Manlj, and later farmed on Route Mason City. He had worked on the annual American Crysta Sugar Company campaigns the last 40 years. He was married to Virginia Jansen, Sept. 14, 1933, at Owatonna, Minn. Surviving are his wife, two sons, William New-!.Jcssc. Oh, fudge! f dividual requests for as many js six. Eyster makes it plain the Idea is his and his alone. "A man wrote to ask what political organization ! represent. I told him none — that Mrs. Larry Swanson, the Mason Cityan who called us the other day with a* complaint about Christmas tree light thieves, now knows for sure that she is not alone. Anybody who has read the paper or heard the electronic newscasts realizes the plague is widespread and that few neighborhoods actually are unscathed. We're not bragging — fact is, we're complaining vehemently — but we must hold some kind of record for the shortest lapse of time between stringing lights and having them pilfered. Here's how fast, the North Jefferson Avenue cell of Bulb- Snatchers, Inc., •went to work: Finished stringing 15 lights around the front yard lamppost -;it 4:45 p.m. Checked them at 5:20.

But the junior college needs were notable as of special interest to civic leaders as well as among educators in the region including Mason City and Austin and Albert Lea, Minn. All in all, interest across the area was at a considerably higher, level than just agreement with the general thought that an educational TV station here would be a good idea. "Without exception," the study' personnel said, "school administrators and college officials saw definite need for cdu- cationa\ television as a means of solving present and future instructional problems. And also without exception they saw the likelihood of definite improvement of their existing educational programs through the proper use of educational television." Area educators questioned — and dozens were—noted specific courses in which they believe television presentation might offer advantages. Many of these specifics, such as foreign languages, are subjects in which the average classroom teacher can give considerable instruction but which can be presented best by teachers with considerable specialization. Seven different languages were mentioned as possible offerings, and TV language in- the elementary through senior high levels. Elementary Spanish for several years has been presented by North Iowa schools over KGLO-TV, and that program has acquainted many school people with educational TV possibilities. Besides language, elementary art, penmanship and modern mathematics were also listed by area school personnel as of probable advantage on television. Science and literature were other areas noted. Numerous adult education offerings were seen as possible and even some pre-school and also were suggested to the research team. Th* consultants, St. Paul educational television management men John C. Schwarzwalder and W. D. Donaldson, found a considerable difference between educators who had used educational TV and those who hava not had such an opportunity. While both groups saw definite advantages that could come from an area television station serving education, those experienced with educational TV most ommends establishment of t North Iowa-Southern Minnesota •educational television station. They are aware, they said, "that the roles played by Austin Junior College and Mason City Junior College will both be significantly expanded in the near future. "Each of these institutions in all likelihood* will wish to be able to avail itself of the expanded course offerings and the non-credit educational series available through ETV. Each often recognized specific ways;would be able to expand, at in which it might solve specific'minimal cost, its cultural and problems. (vocational usefulness to its corn- kindergarten programming.

The latest was found Tuesday jy personnel at the United Home Bank. It was part of a deposit from a jeweler. Cerro Gordo County Sheriff Jerry Allen has forwarded the )ill to the Secret Service at Omaha. Allen said the jeweler could not recall who gave him the bill. The three other bills showed up in November. Two were discovered by the First Na- ional Bank and another was 'ound by the Federal Reserve Bank among bills from the \merican Stale Bank. Allen said it is possible the )ills have been in circulation ! o r some lime and arc just starting to show up. He said here is nothing to indicate someone has been in Mason City to pass the bogus money. The sheriff said the Secret Service has had reports of iclcn- ical bills turning up in Southern Minnesota. All of the bills bear the same serial number: 123708407A. The bills also have the same face plate number: P 154. The back >late has the number 357. Allen said the texture of the paper differs from an authentic )ill. The green ink on the bogus jills is a little bluish in color. The sheriff said all counterfeit bills are confiscated and turned over to federal author! ties for investigation.

The consultants also noted ad[vantages that such a station [could bring to the sort of locally^controlled, four-year college that nas been proposed at Albert Lea. "Such a college would he enabled to broaden its curriculum by the use of vido-tapcrl courses from other institutions, while ;H the same time retaining full local control of its administrative and currirular structure-," the report states. "One of the prime objections to such a college—namely, an extremely limited curriculum— could be at least partially obviated by the use of educational television." Concerning the post-high school field, the area educators con- lacted also frequently told the consultants of concerns for vocational training, correction of adult educational deficiencies and (he retaining of adults for new jobs. Present or future private junior colleges and colleges in (he area would have the same sort of advantages as those schools mentioned, the report slates. (U has been hinted that universities from outside the TV coverage area also might wish to buy .services of the station to reach North lowans and Southern Minnesolans.) Benefits are two-way in relationships between colleges and educational television stations, the report points out. "Each o!
