The women, members of the now disbanded Fidells Class of First Presbyterian Church, and its philanthropic outgrowth, the "Suzie's Kitchen Kabinet Band," re-united in the home of Mrs. John W. Brown, Belmont Village, Godfrey. The band played 23 performances in the area during 1923 to raise $1200 for establishment of the Mary Bryant Home for Blind Women in Springfield. Inspiration of the organization was Mrs. Frank Howse of Springfield, then Miss Margaret Green, one of the group of blind young women employed here at the time. Miss Green was an alumna of the Illinois School for the Blind in Jacksonville, and later became superintendent of the home founded in Springfield. She is now taking an English course at the University of Chicago, and was a guest at the reunion. The band was the first of its kind hi the area, and a forerunner to the present - day kitchen bands. Most members owned a "kazoo," a. small metal tube through which tunes were hummed. The kazoo tunes were accompanied by the beat of shoe trees on washboards and vvashtubs, pans and hatracks. Wore Uniforms The group always appeared in uniform. Tin spoons were sewn like military ".brass" in double rows on the front and sleeves of their black jackets, and on their white cloth hats. The jackets were worn over white skirts. At the reunion, members read through the pages of a document entitled "Rose Petal Days" written by Mrs. Howse in 1923, and pre-dated, June, 1963. The paper recounts performances and humorous incidents in the lives of the band and circle members. The first performance of the band, given on Sept. 22, 1923, in the Alton Evangelical Hall, netted the group $178.44. A line in the memory document refers to the stage fright the women suffered as "they marched onto the platform to the beat of the "Stars and Stripes Forever." Subsequent appearances were made in such localities as Upper Alton, Wood River, Portage Des Sioux and West Alton. For the latter programs, the women drove the Ford, Romeo, and other cars onto the ferry for the trip across river. They recall the night they pinned flags on their uniform jackets for a Lincoln's birthday program presented during below-zero weather in a room heated by one stove. "Lizzie and Henry Ford" were written into poetic introductions recited during the performances by the late Mrs. Eugene Gaskins, emcee, Mrs. Walter Emons held the baton, and Mrs. Wilbur Curtis often sang solos. Roads Wore Bad The "Suzie" women recall that roads were not always at their best in 1923, and a two or three day rains often resulted in muddy lanes, difficult to plow through for scheduled appearances. In one performance, the familiar umpa-umpa and doodle- de-doo accompanied the soloist in the song, "It Ain't Gonna Rain No More, No More" while the rain poured and the good-humored audience applauded. A dinner party in Garden Gate Restaurant united the women 15 years ago, and they have not met as a group since that time. Guests at .the Saturday reunion included Mrs. Earl Linkogle of Clearwa.ter, Fla. Mrs. W. W. Emons takes up the baton she wielded in 1923, as "Suzie s Kitchen Kabinet Band" had a reunion Saturday night. From the left are Mrs. Earl bin- kogle, who came from her home in Florida for the event; Mrs. Paul B. <-° u siey, a former teacher of the Fidelis Class, from which the band sprung; and Mrs. Frank Howse of Springfield, the former Margaret Green', who was the inspiration for the formation of the philanthropic group. Ann Landers It's Wise to Get Some History DEAR ANN: I've heard it said that marrying a divorced man is like buying a second,£* hand car. You L just buy some- else's trou- ..vble. Is this true or I've discussed this .with several friends .,, t and have col- tleeted a fascin- ..' ating variety of Ann Landers, opinions. I'd like to see your answer in the column. Thank you. IN LOVE BUT IN DOUBT. DEAR IN: Some secondhand cars are bargains and can offer many years of faithful service. Others are awful disappoint-, ments because they were misrepresented by someone who wanted to make a quick sale. It's always wise to get a little history. Why is it on the market? Has it been in a serious wreck and patched up to look a good as new? Or did the original owner unload it merely because she wanted a new model? * * * * DEAU ANN: You seem'-to know a lot about psychology. Will you please explain why some people who are well off financially go out of their way to give the impression that they are actually hard up? I can understand.^why people who are not very "well-heeled might pretend to have something, but what about these other kooks? Our friends -live in a $50,000 home, .drive three cars, take elegant trips and the whole family dresses beautifully. Yet they are forever crying poor mouth. They say such , things as, "We can't understand why the Smiths invited us—we aren't in their league financially." The truth is they can buy and sell the Smiths ten times over. What makes people behave like this? CAN'T FIGURE' 'EM. DEAR CAN'T: The poor- mouthers have a silly notion about how, people of means are expected to behave, and they don't feel equal to .it. So they try to shake the label of "well to do" to avoid living up to their manufactured image. Bragging in reverse is phony and bootless. Perhaps they'll see this and cut it out. * *, * * DEAU ANN: Your advice to Marcella, the 14-year-old girl with the 35% hearing loss, was cold and inadequate. No one ridicules a blind person because he can't see, or a lame person because fie can't walk, but when a hard-of-hearing person says he can't hear , he is often accused of not pay- ing attention or using his handicap to goof off. Why didn't you tell Marcella to check to learn if there 'is a speech and hearing clinic in her city? If a hearing aid is not prescribed .she could take a lip-i'eading course. You could have told her, too, to write to the Volta Bureau, 1537 - 35th Street, Washington 7, D. C. This is an information center which was founded by Alexander Graham Bell, whose wife Mabel was stone deaf. I do hope you will print this for the benefit of all the Marcellas . who are struggling with partial deafness. You owe them more than they got from your 'first, reply. TAMPA TEACHER OF THE DEAF. DEAR TEACHER: I appreciate your hauling me up short for what you considered a "cold in inadequate" reply. Your letter is vastly better and more useful than my answer. * * * * Confidential to FRAZZLED NERVES: Why don't you stop trying to please everybody and please yourself for a change? Then at least ONE person will be satisfied. * * * * Confidential to OFFENDER OR OFFENDED: Sorry, but you're mistaken at the top of your lungs. The person who does the telephoning is supposed to identify himself. The woman was' not rude when she asked "Who is this?" You were rude for not telling her before she asked. Marry — Is It Love Or Sex?", enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self - addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her In care of this newspaper, enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Miss Barcelona Miss Ruth Ann Barcelona, fiancee of Richard Lee Jamison, was honored by 14 guests at a bridal shower given Saturday evening.
