Women to Meet At South Roxana tt was a pipe for Alec Temple* .on—getting * n honorary High* anders' commission! Mis latest muscial recognition his appointment as honrarrpipe major of the Seaforth Highlanders at Vancouver, fl. C, Canada. It happened. In a roundabout enough way. A year ago Christmas Eve someone presented him with a set of bagpipes. Templelon always had'admired .e nasal drone of the pipes; always wanted to play them. Ho sat up all night with the nstructlons, practiced the finger- ng, and emerged, Christmas morning, sleepless but triumphant, to pipe "Noeli" as a serenade. A month later Templeion's concert tour took him to Vancouver, where he was invited to attend the annual Robert 'Burns Night of the Beaforthtrs, They Asked for It! After the official program ( and th« haggis) Templeton was called upon to contribute to the merriment (naturally). He played (the piano) and Improvised sketches; then came further shouts from the floor. Someone wanted a recitation. And Templeton reeled off Bobby Burns. Came a demand for "Speech!" and Templeton obliged with an impromptu address In his richest burr. Finally there rose a call in- tended to stump him.' "The plp«*t Let 1 * hear him on the pipes!" To the general amazement Templeton reached for the neau t set of bagpipes and marched about the great drill hall, delivering himself of choice repertoire of Highland favorite*. As a result Alec was named at once an honorary pipe major of th* Seaforthers, and presented with a uniform of kilts, sporran, and bonnet In the McKenzle tartan. Templeton, who will play Thursday night at High School Auditorium under auspices of the Alton Community Concert Association, has spent most of his career skipping between rlarslcal and popular forms of music. He was Invited by the University of Kansas City to deliver lectures tin musical form at the same time the Canadian government picked him as the surest-fire getter of laughs and cash for its bond drives. On the day that Harvard s organist, E. Power Biggs, broadcast Tompleton's Prelude, variations, and Fugue on an Old French Hymn, a Gallup Poll survey to select America's favorite people included Templeton among the four entertainers on a list of 50- odd notables. Templeton has many interests and a few hobbles, but all sooner or later are found to center on music. He* listens to music, make* music, tatkes music, composes music, has fun with mutlc every waking hour of the day. He takes an alert Interest In politics and enjoys discussing world affairs, but sooner or later his conversation drifts back to music. Kvery room In Templeton't .nectlcut home has a radio. HI* car has two sets, and a portable model goes along on concert tours. He owns 11 sets in all, and some of them are tuned in all the time. If Templeton is alone In a room, his radio is turned up to normal. If someone 1* with him and talk goes on, It's tuned so fatally that the average ear can hardly hear it. But Templeton doesn't miss a note. His tavorlte spot is the corner of the living room where the piano stands with a radio-phonograph alongside. There Templeton spends most of the day, practicing, playing, listening to the radio, putting on records, going back to playing again. Across the hall in the dining- room there's a radio next to his chair. At meal times he shuts off the living room set, tunes in the dining room set, and picks up the broadcast ^before sitting down to the table. He tunes in the bedroom set the moment he awakens and again before he falls asleep.
