14— Ukiah Daily Journal/ Uklah Calif. Thursday, July 1?, 1974 CONCERT FACES — A lovely way to spend an evening is to listen to a concert in the park, as these Uklah folk are doing, and as others will do tonight at 7 at municipal park. It's a "come as you are" informal type of musical party presented by the students of the 2nd annual Ukiah Summer Music Camp, and as these faces show, draws intent, thought provoking interest. Benches, folding chairs or the grass itself afford seats. —Journal photos by Erickson. Todays Market Report Fair offers prizes for top talent BATEMAN EICHLER, HILL RICHARDS INC.

S. dollars in order to raise their value. They hope to stem the mass importation of dollars entering into the country's banks and being converted into the gold-backed Swiss Franc. As the buying power of the dollar has continued to erode at a spiralling pace, U.S. citizens have in growing numbers sent their dollars to Swiss banks for conversion to the franc. This has been a burden on the Swiss banks which have an over supply of U. S,. dollars of a declining value. The Central or Federal Bank of Switzerland is buying these dollars from its member banks to relieve^ their situation and hopefully raise the value of the * dollar in relationship to the franc so it would not be as attractive for dollars to convert into the Swiss money. Some international currency experts say the Swiss government may be jeopar- dudng the strength of their own Frasher Management Associates of Burlington, Vt., believes the market may be reaching a bottom in its recent decline, "With conditions so disturbed, most people would rather wait until they have seen a turn," the firm says. But "experience tells us to accumulate carefully right here and now while we can," the company says. Last Friday's rally has left a mark on the market, according to Paine, Webber, Jackson & Curtis, which will not leave soon. But how long this will last is a big question, the firm says. The firm says the rally may have indicated "only a temporary easing of external market pressures." WWI Barracks will host district meet World War I Barracks and Auxiliary 1000 will be hosts Friday and Saturday to the district Barracks and Auxiliaries at the Veterans Memorial hall, corner of Seminary and Oak. v 6 The veterans and members of the auxiliaries will be entertained Friday evening by programs planned for the occasion by Alice Trimble and her cast, and by members of Cornelia Rebekah Lodge. Trimble's cast has chosen a Hawaiian theme. There also will be music during the evening and dancing. Cookies, coffee and tea will be served. Serious business will begin Saturday morning after 9 o'clock coffee and doughnuts. A guest speaker will appear at the joint session at 9, with barracks and auxiliaries separating about 9:30 for a morning long business session. Luncheon will be served at noon at Fjords. A short afternoon session will follow. Music camp concert is tonight -Russian composer Modest Moussorgsky (1839-01), listed in the World Almanac between Grace Moore and Wolfgang Mozart, is best known for his Russian folk opera "Boris Godunov," "Pictures at an Exhibition," or "Night on Bald Mountain," depending upon your musical tastes. Tonight, at a 7 o'clock during a free band concert by students of the Ukiah Summer Music Camp at municipal park, the Cadet Band of 45 to 50 sixth through ninth graders guided by Pomolita-Ukiah junior high band director Ed Singer, will offer Moussorgsky's tone picture of the "Great Gate of Kiev" as one of several selections. The free concert will offer a variety of instrumental selections by the Cadet, Ranger and advanced concert bands in which some 145 youngsters, from the sixth through 12th grades, with one to six, eight or more years of varied musical experience, have been taking part daily in summer session "summer camp" classes at Ukiahi. "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,"" the beloved spiritual arranged by Erickson,; "Patrol Leader", a march, and the lilting "Tango Tropical," both by John Kinyon, will be played by the Cadet band, along with Rich Whitney's enjoyable: "Ain't We Got Fun." The Ranger band, conducted by Jeff Simpson and composed of young men and women with a year or so of instrumental experience, will offer a half- dozen short selections, including: "Peanut Butter Rock"; "Dos Orchestra," "Purple Sky" and the popular "Put Your Hand in the Hand..". Ukiah Summer Music Camp and Ukiahi Band Director Rowland Nielson, and Jeff. Dickey, Redwood Valley conductor, will share the baton in directing, various selections by the advanced concert band tonight. These include not only such possible selections as a concert march based on Swedish Folk Melodies; the "Conqueror March," and "Never on Sunday," the hit movie theme, but also a richly colored tone showpiece, "Mora Lasso," and a Haydn "St. Anthony Divertimento" in four movements of contrasting style and pace.. Listeners had best arrive early for the best seats near and around the bandstand-picnic area, and are advised to bring sweaters to wear or blankets to sit on in case it gets cool. The young musicians will give their best, hopefully before another large audience, such as the one which enjoyed last year's first Ukiah Summer Music Camp old-fashioned outdoor free band concert. However, tonight the band is running competition with a nearby Ukiah-Sebastopol 6 p.m. swim meet, and many other potential spectators will be delayed by the North UHah- Konocti Little League playoffs. The concert is to be about an. hour, or a little longer, in duration and will begin as close to 7 p.m. as possible, since the concert must be over before it is too dark to read music. HJmever long or short, the 2nd| annual Ukiah Summer' Music Camp .will showcase the increasingly early and improving instrumental music talent of young men and women of this area, thanks to the instruction and assistance of Nielson, Singer, Dickey, Simpson, Carolyn Thompson and others, as performed by three bands and various ensemble groups.

James Michael Smith, 27, of the Highlands, became frustrated trying to get his boat out of Clear Lake and angry as the truck he was using slid down a ramp into the water and almost submerged. Refusing to pay towing fees, Smith reportedly became more angry and frustrated and felt that Deputy Carl Webb was "hassling" him when he urged Smith to get the truck out of the water as soon as he was able. Three other persons, Robert Allen Lacy, 24, of Middle town, and Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Dale (Suzanne Anne) Decker, entered the argument. As Deputy Webb attempted to arrest the men for disturbing the peace, etc., the woman allegedly struck him over the head with her purse. Reserve Officers Ken Aubineau and Dan Brennan came to Deputy Webb's assistance and the four were booked at a jail in the Highlands. Charges of suspicion of possession of marijuana and drug paraphanelia also were lodged against the woman when matrons found a pipe and mariiuana in her purse.
