Swea City Lutheran Choir Presents Musicale ELABORATE PROGRAM IS PRESENTED Swea City, Feb. 18—The Im- tnanual Lutheran choir gave a Schubert musicale at Luther hall Friday night. The program took the form of a musical dramatization of the .life of young Franz, and was interspersed with musical selections. The numbers were announced by Mrs. Borg, who gave a sketch of the composer's life and works. This was followed by a vocal solo, Who is Sylvia?, by Mrs. Cecil Thoresen, and a violin solo, The Bee, by Fred Infelt. WHEN MERCHANTS GO TO THE MARKET | Characters in tion were Schoolmaster, _„ „„.„„„„, Mother Schubert, a cook, Bernice Larson; Franz, Mareta Thoreson; Brothers Ignatz and Ferdinand, Keith Anderson and Kenneth Anderson; Theresa, a sister, Lillian Kvamsdale; Michael, choirmaster and first teacher, Rheuben Holcomb; Antonio Salieri, Italian composer, master teacher, Ray Pehrson. Music on the stage consisted of a clarinet trio, Kathryn Tweeten, Inez Larson, and Evelyn Larson, who played a selection composed by Franz's father and directed by Franz; Excerpts from Mozart, piano, Esther Johnson; and Sol- feggietto, by Bach, piano solo by Louise Borg. Music off stage included Serenade, violin solo, Fred Infelf Moment Musical, Shirby Sampson, piano; Hark! Hark; the Lark, Phyllis ' ' By T. II. Chrischilles. Another curious custom originated in an east-front room in the famous hostelry. The sun shown into the room so early in August that I conceived the brilliant idea of tying a sock around my eyes. The stunt worked so effectively that I am still employing it on occasion; but I now substitute a worn-out pair of my wife's silk hose, smoother and less irritating; and also the knot is smaller and doesn't leave your face looking like a wrinkled blanket. Only once in that long period of attending market weeks was I sick, and then it happened, ironically enough, that I was berthed on the top floor, 45 stories aloft . I had a the dramatiza- slight fever, and I remember distinctly that iTno-n QsiVinltfwvf- I • , -. . * in my semi-delirium I developed a phobia about jumping out of the window! I was standing down on Market street one balmy summer afternoon some 20 years ago, watching a huge Goodyear blimp cruising leisurely over the Loop. Suddenly the great ship was enveloped in a sheet of flame. The occupants jumped out in parachutes but the air was so still that they hung below the ship like dragon flies. As the flaming mass of wreckage came hurtling down, it caught these helpless men, one by one, and finally crashed through a glass top bank building, killing a score of innocent victims. It was the most terrible tragedy I have ever witnessed and it ties itself up very definitely with market trips in my mind. But enough of these personal reminiscences. Over the long span of years many amusing and pathetic incidents flash back to memory, little human dramas enacted in some style show or some secluded salesroom; recollections from the pages of "history"—five, ten, fifteen, twenty years ago; friends or acquaintances made around fes- tives tables, in hotel lobbys, on the street, in night clubs, wherever men meet Some merchants never return, others fail in business, still others retire and are otherwise lost in the whirlpool of our rapidly changing world; some once prominent manufacturers now penniless and alone; erstwhile struggling salesmen now suddenly dead, killed in* an automobile accident!" "And Max, how's good old Max?" "He's gone, too; died suddenly on the road, away from friends and family." "Too bad, market week isn't the same without Max." But, forgotten .nevertheless in a few short years. But many true friends, the same year after year; a few grey hairs, a bald spot, but the good old heart of gold. Minor incidents live vividly through the years: a southern Iowa merchant, in a style show, admires beautiful young feminine buyer across table. Introduction. Girl turns out to be the man's childhood sweetheart!" Neither recognizes other after 20 years. Or here's a fellow merchant from a neighboring Iowa town; been coming to market for two decades, but you've never met him. Another new friend; someone to look forward to seeing next trip. Yes, market week is more than a cold business propositi6n; it is an institution, and a very human one, indeed. It is friendship on a grand scale; companionship on a wholesale basis; an ever-changing panorama with SENECA GIRLS FACE BODE IN CAGE TOURNEY Seneca, Feb. 17—The Sfcneca basketball girls Won another tfo-* phy In a sectional tournament at Armstrong Saturday evening by defeating the Armstrong girls in the finals.
