MUSIC REVIEW . » uii. _n -:«.b ■»ili ûju > i : .-i Mrs. King Brings Patrons To Feet By MAYBELLE SPECKMANN SAN FRANCISCO - Contrary to the usual order in concerts., the first two numbers in last n i g h t’s San Francisco Symphony program conducted by Maestro Josef Krips at the Op-! era House took precedence in interest over the major concluding w ork. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, “Erioca.” In fact, the standing ovation came at the end of the opening “A Lincoln Portrait” by Copland. The reverse order of inter-; est was due to the memorable performance as narrator in the Copland portrait by Coretta Scott King and to the successful 1 world premiere of Roger Nixon’s Concerto for Viola and Or-| chestra. This was dedicated to and played by Marin’s Rolf Persinger, principal violist of the orchestra. Mrs. King did not receive the ovation merely out of respect for her as widow' of Martin Luther King Jr. and a remarkable person in her own right, but for the moving quality of her reading. A truly beautiful woman. she read the lines in a rich, resonant voice with perfect enunciation of the words and deep sincerity in conveying t he i r meaning. Part of the appeal, too, came from the relevance to the current scene in the United States of such words as, ‘‘The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate! to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew.” Ingenious programming was the great Beethoven Eroica, which heralded a new democratic-revolutionary’ era, an ending to the concert that was complementary to the beginning. Krips and the orchestra performed the musical part of the portrait in a way that punctuated and gave more emotional significance to the work. The Viola Concerto by Nixon, a San Francisco State College professor and colleague of Persinger, was a totally captivating work which should be a welcome addition to the rather meager viola solo repertoire. The first one composed in the United States in the last 15 years, it was for me a revelation that it is possible to write an exquisitely melodious and sensuously beautiful piece within a fairly modern sounding American idiom. Unlike many Nursery To Be Used For School The Corte Madera Park and Recreation Commission learned last night the town had been granted permission to use Twin Cities Nursery School at 56 Mohawk Drive for an eight-week preschool nursery program.

Nunnally said a .25-caliber revolver was used in the shooting After the incident, witnesses said the assailant placed the Education Corps Benefit Planned The Education Corps of Marin will hold its second annual spring benefit May 23 at 8:15 p.m. the San Domenico School Theater, in Sleepy Hollow.

Strict Curbs Set On Pay TV Shows WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Commerce Committee has approved stringent regulations for pay television that | could sharply reduce the combination of feature films and sports that could be telecast. The committee’s regulations also would place a complete ban on commercial advertising and extend the freeze on certain sports programs. The combination of sports and feature films is considered the backbone of pay TV and was approved in 1968 by the Federal Communications Commission. The restrictions were approved Wednesday after being introduced by Rep. John D. Dingell, D-Mich., who wras defeated in his attempt to ban the FCC: from authorizing anyone to engage in the broadcasting of pay! television. Associated Press Corrects Fly-In Data NEW YORK (AP) - Monday’s full-page Associated Press picture story on the annual Experimental Aircraft Association \ fly-in erred in placing this coming August’s gathering in Rock-; ford, 111. The 1970 fly-in will be Aug. 1 through 7 at Wittman Airport in Oshkosh, Wis., Associated Press announced today. contemporary works, it is definitely lyrical, and the orchestration and rhythmic patterns are intriguing. Persinger's playing was notable for great technical agility, sensitive phrasing and especially for gorgeous tone ranging from a glowing da~k low register to notes in the high register as sweet and limpid as those of a violin. Krips and the orchestra did full justice to the score. At its conclusion the composer was called on stage and received acclaim. The reading of the Beethoven Erioca was good and very enjoyable, but somehow did not achieve the heroic proportions of its title. At times Krips seemed to have to work very hard to achieve the response he wanted. Charges Revived In Thwarted Narcotics Case Three young men whose narcotics charges were dismissed Tuesday in Marin Municipal Court when the district attorney's office could not find a witness have been charged again with the same offenses plus an additional one. Frank Garcia, 21, of Daly.

The three were stopped Feb. 19 by the California Highway Patrol for erratic driving.

Betts Denied Entry In Race I-J Special Report SAN FRANCISCO - Former State Treasurer Bert A. Betts’ plea that he be permitted to run for the State Beard of Equalization was denied yesterday by the California Supreme Court. Sacramento Superior Court Judge William Gallagher last Tuesday ruled that Betts was ineligible to run for the Democratic nomination in the Third District because he had not been an inhabitant of the district for the required year. Betts had argued the 178-acre ranch on which he lives includes 17 acres in the Third District, but the court found that both his house and mailing address were outside the district.
