Handel's most successful oratorio, and the most widely known in music literature, will be presented at 4 p.m. Sunday in the McNeese State College Auditorium. Dr. Francis G. Bulber, founder-director of the chorus and dean of the division of fine arts at McNeese, will conduct the large chorus, soloists and orchestra. Soloists this year are soprano Anna Maria Conti, contralto Eunice Alberts, tenor James Wainner and baritone Robert Frankenberger. "Messiah" tells the story of man's redemption. It is divided into three parts. The first part tells the promise of the Redeemer, birth of Christ and his mission of healing and comfort. The second part deals with His passion, resurrection and ascension and establishment of the kingdom of God upon earth. Part three deals with the Christian belief in the resurrection of the body and ends with the triumph of the redeemed and the glory of Heaven. A local audience of 2,000 is expected to attend the Sunday performance. Admission is free of charge to the public. In addition, portions of the Lake Charles performance will reach all corners of the globe via radio. The live program will be recorded and the Aineric a n Broadcasting Co. will feature portions in a radio broadcast on Dec. 18. The hour-long broadcast starts at 1 p.m. Dr. Bulber says that this year was marked by the largest number of chorus applicants ever. Many members return year after year to sing in the chorus or play in the orchestra. There have been 75 members who have appeared 10 years or more. This year's group included nine new members of the "Ten-And-Over" Club and three others who will be appearing for the 15th time or more. EUNICE ALBERTS ANNA MAMA CONTI In observance of the Festival I Contemporary Art at Me- eese which begins Wednesday, Barbara Belew, coordinator of ublicity for the Fine Arts Dillon, will share the intermis- ion spotlight with host Ray Carroll on Sunday's "McNeese n Broadway" on KAOK Radio at 8:30 p.m. They will discuss the art exhibit, Bayou Players produc- ion and student and faculty music recitals which will take place this week. Musical features for the two- and-one-half hour program will include the music of Lerner and Loewe's "Gigi" and a return of Zero Mostel's "Fiddler on the Roof." Incidental music will be by Ferrante and Telcher on the two rianos. Other special reports on activities will be made. JAMES WAINNER Soloists, too, are enjoying special distinctions this year. Miss Alberts will sing the same contralto soli with the Boston Symphony Orchestra this year. "This is a fine recommendation for her, because the Boston Symphony has one of the best productions in the country," says Dr. Bulber. He also notes that Wainner was a soloist with the Handel and Haydn Society in 1963. This is (he oldest choral group in the United States, having been organized in 1815. Miss Conti and Frankenberger. like Miss Alberts and Wain- ROBERT FRANKENBERGER ner, have enjoyed professions success in opera, concerts, ra dio and television as well as jratorio works. — that J. tita^l aam* ~ Unscramble these six Jumbles, one letter to each square, to form six ordinary words.

SUNDAY, DEC. 5, 1965, Lake Charles American Press Tiny Martha Graham Has Devoted Lifetime to Dance NEW YORK (AP) ~ For Vlartha Graham, a liny woman f giant fame, the thing that matters is the mystery and itsj never-ending challenge. | Through a lifetime of revolutionary dance she has explored 'those deep, curious currents — good, bad, beautiful, ugly — .hat surge through every individual." The quest still goes on, despite the unparalleled honors, awards and recognition earned during her long search. Now a lit past the 70-year mark the ligh priestess of the modern dance conceivably might relax on those laurels. Instead, those deep-set, luminous eyes shine with unslaked enthusiasm. Miss Graham and her company — her "acrobats of God" — have just completed a three- week Broadway engagement that both critics and public found to be the brightest thea- trical vent of the season so far. Designed as a 30-year retrospective display of major examples of the modern dancing style which she pioneered, the program included two new Graham works, one of which she "tore apart" — her own phrase — between its premiere and second showing, Looking back over the vista that began with a 5-year-old tot gazing awestruck at Punch-and- Judy in Atlantic City, N.J., Miss Graham voices greatest satisfaction at the improving status of those engaged in artistic creation. "The artist is no longer a subnormal creature," she says. "This is happening all over the world, not just in our country." The students — several hundred each season — who crowd to her School of Contemporary Dance come now with an attitude different from that ,ther'<i death when she was Ifi | that Miss Graham witnessed a (performance of danca.
