Alton Pianists Exhibit Wide Variety of Musical Styles By JOHN I. ADE8 The Artist Presentation Society of St. Louis honored two Alton musicians yesterday afternoon when it presented Frina Arschanska and Kenwyn Boldt, duo-pianists, in recital at the Wednesday Club auditorium in St.. Louis. Playing a program which exhibited their talents in a wide variety of music styles, these dedicated artists presented works by Bach, Brahms, Freed, Milhaud, Rachmanin- off; and Rimsky-Korsikoff. And as if these were not taxing enough, they responded to generous applause with the first movement of Mozart's "Sonata in C. Major" (K. 521), four hands, one piano. This encore, delightful as it was, served to illustrate by contrast, however, the enormous range of sonorities possible to the two pianos of the rest of the recital. From the fullness and tapestry-like texture of the Bach "Concerto in C Major for Two Pianos," to the seeming caprice of the "Scaramouche Suite" of Milhaud, to the musical "clowning of the Rimsky-Korsakoff "Dance of the Bjuffoons," we seemed to hear all possible styles and ranges of duo-pianism, and evidence of the highest talent in these artists. Judging from this concert, one would assume that Miss Arschanska and Mr. Boldt, themselves, have a predilection for the modern idiom. And thus while Bach's "Concerto" gave us all that bright allegro and fugue — and some really impressive legato in the second- section adagio — the Brahm's "Variation on the Theme of Haydn" was all that oould be expected in expansive deftness, somehow the "Scara- mouche Suite" of Milhaud came through with the most appeal. His delightful blending of jaw chordi and rhythms, bis intimate mmic hall style, and his lovely lyric moments (in the second section) were all to the touch of these artists, and they made consummate art of this modern work. Two other modern works, light in style, humorous in effect, were the "Carnival" of Freed, and the "Dance of the Buffoons" of Rimsky-Korsi- koff, the latter fulfilling the expectation of its title by going every which way at once. The odd harmonies and marvelously executed counter rhythms— and the capricious endings — drew chuckles from the audience. In the grand style were the "Valse" from "Suite (Op. 17)" of Rachmaninoff and the "Variation on a Theme of Hnydn" of Brahms. In both, a certain ponderousness was submerged in the sheer keyboard dexterity and skill of Miss Ar- schanska and Mr. Boldt. The duo-piano literature is not large, but yesterday's recital, by two impressive artists, proves, no doubt, that it ought to be larger. The substantial number of Altonians in yesterday's St. Louis audience was evidence of the following these pianists have stimulated in a short time. Bwmly Tips When you apply foundation make-up, turn slightly to one side and then the other in addition to looking straight ahead. With your head turned, smooth the make-up on the sides and in the crevices of your nose and along the jaw line until the application Is perfectly even.

The letter which triggered thousands of angry responses from boiling - mad readers was signed "Realist." He said he would not stop to help an injured dog if the dumb animal happened to be in the path of his c a r . He sought to justify his position by saying Ann Landers that people who allowed their pets to roam around unleashed deserved what they got. A reader in Tampa sent a 220 word telegram. I even heard from the dogs. This first letter is from Norfolk, Va. It was signed "Trixie" and boie her paw-print: Dear Ann: I'm nothing special—just a mut. My mother was part terrier and part airc- dale. My father was a transient, so to speak. I couldn't win any prizes but the folks I live with love me anyway. When they read that letter in the paper from the guy who called himself "Realist" they blew up. My master said if anyone ever hit me and left me in the road to die he'd go after him with a double-bar- relled shot gun. I'd sure hate to see anyone get shot, but if I did, I'd go for help. I wouldn't let him just lie there no matter who he was or what he'd done. * * * * KANSAS CITY: That heartless character who wouldn't stop to help an injured dog said that animals are stupid. I'll bet Lassie's take-home pay is bigger than his. * * * * SANTA CRUZ, Calif.: Anyone who would hit an animal and leave him in the street to die would probably do the same if he hit a human. We have a couple of two-legged animals and we happen to love them very much. I hope that moron doesn't live in our neighborhood. * * * * PITTSBURGH: Of course a dog shouldn't be running loose. But doesn't that cold-hearted "Realist" know that sometimes a puppy can gnaw at a rope until it breaks, or he can slip through his collar, crawl under a fence or snap a chain? How could he be so cruel?

How about the St. Bernards who patrol the mountain passes? And the German Shepherds who serve as eyes for the blind? And the remarkable hunting dogs?

That man who said he would not bloody up his car taking a dog to the vet made me mad. What if the dog was his? Would he say the same thing? * » * * TOLEDO: Of course rings don't belong in the street. Neither do children or old people, but sometimes they're in the street anyway. Does this mean they should be struck down and left to die? » * * * WHITE PLAINS, N. Y.: There's a fine and a loss of license connected with hit-run driving—even if the victim is a dog. That jerk who said animals are dumb probably can't read. ©_1961, Field Enterprises, Inc. Every mother teems to on* derstand Intuitively that *om> thing is wrong when her baby Wftls to sit, crawl or stand at an age when other children nan ordinarily perform these function*. Sometimes an over-anxious parent may erroneously conclude that the infant Is a vie- thn of some major crippling nervous disorder. In other cases, a mother may wait expectantly, hoping that things will Improve next week or next month and that her youngster is simply slow in developing and, ultimately, will be as normal as the other children. In the first case, premature anxiety may cause unnecessary suffering; in the second case, unusual delay invites the loss of precious time that can be used for physiotherapy or surgery. Walking Upright, Instinctive The desire to walk upright is apparently instinctive and, Buring the first year of life, motor development proceed? In a logical sequence toward the upright posture and walking. The normal evolution of motor development is as follows: At four weeks, the Infant Is able to hold his head up while lying on his abdomen, and at sixteen weeks, he can hold his head up when lying on his back. At twenty-eight weeks, he sits with some support and, at forty weeks, is able to creep and then to crawl. By the age of 11 or 12 months the infant is able to pull himself to a standing position and, at 13 or 14 months, is able to walk unassisted. Locomotion Is a complicated act, requiring fine coordination between the muscles and the nervous systems. First, the infant has' to learn head and trunk control and, as the upright posture is assumed, balance is aided by holding on to the edge of the crib and standing with feet set wide apart. At first, too, the arms may be held out like a tightrope walker's to promote equi'ibrl- um and balance. As the child first begins to walk, the gait is flatfooted but then, as the muscles of the foot gain control, the normal heel-toe gait comes into being. Considered Delayed Most doctors agree that, if a child does not walk by the age of 18 to 20 months, he should be considered delayed. If the child is not already under the care of a physician, there should be no further delay in calling this matter to a doctor's attention. At this point, a careful his- has feMn MNIW serwoi Units (for txampft, polio) « torn* accident or fOme flflfljWMfal abnormality that Is intwfettng with ambulation. The doctor will also examine the various muscles of the ex* tremltle* to determine precisely which muscle group* are functioning Improperly. Ambulation may be delayed, of course, in cases where there is mental rttard&tion, and experts may have to be called in to determine whether the child's mental growth Is normal for his age. Without ftn accurate diagnosis, treatment would be based on guesswork and would be unsatisfactory. Although the parent is more often Interested in what can be done for the child, the physician is usually Interested in determining what is wrong with the child. Mentally Normal Let us assume the child's mental development Is normal and that his inability to walk Is limited by some disease of the spine, muscles or nervous system. In these cases, the child should be given an opportunity to walk the same time as other children his own age. Even the mentally retarded child's ambulation may be accelerated with use of some training aids. Since many of the training aids currently in use can be constructed at home for a few dollars, the training program can be continued at home once it is started in clinic, hospital or doctor's office. One simply constructed device is a tiltboard to which the child can be strapped and then titlted to an upright position. A small standup table is often helpful and there are few children who cannot be taught to use parallel bars. Other children can be helped in their gait by being provided with a weighted carriage with a low center of gravity that they can push before them. The importance of proper shoes has usually been overemphasized, but the best rule is to fit the child and his general needs rather than to fit only the foot. In general, however, small children do better in high top shoes because they are easier to keep on. Education of Parent Most important in any training program is the education of the parent. According to one authority, "A thoroughly instructed parent is the best guarantee of good results in ambulation training." Thoroughness and persistence usually yield good results.

When, out of kindness, yott voluntarily spend time with a bore because you feel sorry for him, do you do so graciously—that Is, quietly? Or do you groan to others about what a trial it is to spend time with anyone so dull? When you help someone out of a bad spot, do you let the matter drop once it is over? Or do you keep bringing It up to the person who would probably like to forget the matter?

Or do you begin to complain because you have bitten off more than you want to chew? In whatever you do for others, the gracious way you do It counts for as much as the good deed itself.
