We, the Women i THE ALMANAC Well established as one of the most popular pianists of his day, Jose Iturbi drew a large audience to hear him last evening in Memorial chapel at the Uni versity of Redlands where he appeared under auspices of the Redlands Winter Concert Association. Probably one of the most controversial musicians of his day, too, there is still no denying his brilliance and ability to mesmerize an audience with his dazzling virtuosity on the concert stage. Technique literally oozes from his fingers and while he can fly over the keyboard with startling speed, he does not, as some would-be virtuosi do, give the effect of racing the composer to the finish line. He really is a technical giant. It is in the art of interpretation that opinions differ. Sonatas by Mozart and Chopin opened his program. While Mr. Iturbi is said to have gained early recognition as an interpreter of Mozart and Beethoven, his Mozart last evening forfeited much of its crystalline quality with over-pedaling and tooj frequent heaviness of tone, part : of this due. perhaps, to the : quality of his instrument. j In the Chopin Sonata, he matched its eloquence with a dedicated performance, particu larly in the final Presto — a prodigious portrayal of pianistic execution tossed off with the utmost ease. After intermission, he pro gressed from the stately, moving "Pavane" by Ravel to two Debussy numbers, by choice holding applause between them His Debussy "Feux d'Artifice' in its creation of the descriptive title — the pianist illuminating the atmosphere with his musical "fireworks". Next came the "Marche Fu- nebre" by Filip Lazar (born in Craiova, Rumania, 1894; died in Paris, 1936, the same year he performed his piano concerto with the Boston Symphony). Mr. Iturbi heightened its dramatic rhythmical cadence and made this interesting little piece, with its contrasting conventional harmonies and dissonances, known to many in the audience for the first time. Played also with only the briefest pause between were the serene "Evocacion" by Albeniz and then the grand finale, the fiery and diabolically difficult "Allegro de Concerto" by Granados. It is this flambuoyant. MAKE f RIEND5 A newcomer in a targe city must make efforts to meet people and build a new social life. RELUCTANT DAUGHTER.

The baby was more than - a week late. vigorous type of music in which the pianist excells. Unfortunately, he inserts these qualities too frequently into other music, such as his Chopin encores, where they result in distortion. But a dazzling evening it was, and the pianist was recalled for encores which were the Chopin Waltz Brillante in A Flat and the Fantasie Impromptu. The current concert series will end on April 22 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra directed by Zubin Mehta. rolled unless the gloves hands are put directly into the hot syrup. After rolling five or six, apply butter again.

And when the phone rings and it's a long distance call from one of your children, you'll be so happy you won't even think about who is paying for the call — now, will you? Besides, if your children are terribly poor about writing letters, it just might be that it's your own fault. Perhaps that you didn't insist on their writing their thank-you notes when! they were children, or make it tury's beginning, a time of tem pest has seemed to come upon the continents of the earth." quite plain that you expected regular letters from them when they were in summer camp, away at school, or off on a visit. Once children are grown and gone from home you aren't going to change them. It's certainly better to make it pleasant and easy for them to keep in touch with you, if you can afford to, than to worry and ( fret because you so seldom] hear from them. 1 LosPiosRANCHQ Open Every Day 9 AM.-5 P.M.
