Log- 'Hi-Fi 1 Owners Should Have String Quartet CHANNEL 2, KPRC-TV The recently formed Highland's -.Civic club will meet at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the oterneutary school auditorium to Jicar reports of jjim- standing committees. W. E; • Henrichson, president, isaia the club, organized to promote tits growth and civic improvement of Highlands, had .attained a membership of 126 since its formation in February. The idea was conceived early in .Tsir.ifi.ry -o' this year when numerous civic-minded citizens rpeog- ajn«? the need of such an organization, and calM a (<V.VTJ meeting to Lest public opinion. At the or- ganizaliosal meeting ;~ February, townspeople voted overwhelmingly to orgarii™f the body ana elected its first officers. ' Named :o head the new group were Henrichscn; Joe Smith, vice president: Jim Braaiil. secretary, and Clifton Adan-.s, treasurer. An advisory committee composed of George Keith, H. W, Oliver, Mrs. Harry K. Johnson, Mrs. Voters Are Asked To Look At Human Factor In Housing Baytown voters, who vcail decide •whether the city should have additional public •housing' on. March 24. were asked Tuesday to "cou- siScr the human values involved." T. F. Scale, chairman of the Greater Baytown : Improvement group, called attention to what he termed a typical low-income family now residing, in a public housing unit "A characteristic- family group is headed "by a 39-year-old widow iviio must support four school-age children on her clerical salary of ?2S a -week." Seale'said. "This family was paying- S9 per .veek for three rooms in a large. dilapidated frame apartment building: when, a minister told the mother of the possibilities for improvement of her family life offered by our existing public housing unit. "Before the family-was admitted, the members of the Housing authority determined that its Jiving conditions were sub-standard, that its income did not permit improvement in private housing- and that the family head was a loyal American citizen of good moral background." "What this has meant in this woman's struggle to J:e?p her family together.'' Scale continued, -"can best be described In her own words: "When my husband cied, we tried living with relatives. Thac j'jst didn't work with two famines under the same roof. The children didn't feel at home. It didn't work out in the old apartment either. It was too high, cors-sidering what I make, and it was so crowded that we were always in each other's way. Even worse was the way the piace looked. We had no place for nay 35-year-old daughter to cmcrtain her friends ar.d she couidn't have a decent social life like other girls. ""Things are a lot different now. The older girl has one more year at REL, then hopes to get a part-time job &r_a attend Loe coi- legr; at night. The two smallest boys are in a Cub Scout pack and have lots of friends in the court. We're living like huraan beings aijain. It's the way it used to be before my husband died.'" "The point that this illustrates,'' Seals concluded, "is that the people served by public housing arc -just like other Baytowa people, only they are in need. The average family income among occupants of Baytown public housing: units is .71292.73 pc-r year. The average monthly rental is S23.45." L». F. Leach and W. L, Heanvdon were elected to assist the officers in Braiding the destiny of the organization. '.Nine standing committees wore appointed to expedite functions of the club in the various brackets. Kerned to head the committees were Harry K. Johnson Jr., industrial; Wallace Dunks, roads and transportation; Warren Spivey, commerce: Don Lane, city planning; Pat Patterson, civic affairs; William A. Berefeld, agriculture; Mrs. E. W. Lynch, education; Mrs. B. B. Tsilcy, publicity; and" Louis Rosser, membership and finance. The various committees have he'.d individual meetings, the latest of which was the. meeting of the education committee ir. the home of Mr. and Mrs. B. B. Talley. While the advisory committee has authority to act for the club, the entire membership votes on major issues. Kenrichsen said the club is currently concerned primarily with educational problems, -civic affairs and the possible formation of a City planning: commission. Regular meetings are held the third Tuesday -in each month and membership is still open. Women, 2i Leaps Off Trinity River Yfadyct At Dallas .

If it is a real high fidelity recording job, almost nothing will sound so good. A hi-fi fan looking for a. string quartet probably couldn't do any better now thnn Capitol's New Hollywood String Quartet recording of Bedrich Srneiana's 'From My Life" (12-inch, LP, RIAA curve", P-S3SD. Because of the music,, the Smetana side of the record sounds better than the other side, Alexander Glazounov's "The Five Novelettes" of Opus 15. Another • new. recording that will give a hi-G system a real workout is six George Gershwin pieces re- o.ordetf for AIGM by Sondra Bianca with the Pro Husica Sym- phony of Hamburg, Germany (12- inch, LP, NARTB curve. E3307) 1 . The top side of the record — "Second Rhapsody" for piano and orchestra and variations oC "I got. Rhythm" for piano orchestra— is less impressive than the No. 2 side. Miss Bianca is an American. The second side — "Cuban Overture" for 'orchestra and three- preludes for solo piano —•' is indeed a fine piece of business. Because of the variety of 'extraordinary sounds it contains, it is a fine showpiece for a-hi-fi system. The first violinist of the Hollywood String Quartet is Felix Slat- Inn. Slatkin conducts the Hollywood Bowl symphony Orchestra in Ed- vnrd-.H. Griegs "Peer Gynt Suite No. 1." Opus 4G, and "Peer Gynt Suite No. 2," Opus 55 on one side of another new Capitol recording (12-inch, LP, RIAA curve, P-8329). • This is well worth any man's 53.95. The."other' side is the "Caucasian Sltetches" of Mikhail Ippo!- 1 - itQff-Iva'noff. It-is not a bad piece of music but suffers by comparison witlithe Peer Gynt Suites.•Fidelity, the highest on both sides. : .There must be hi-fi fans on a hill-billy kick and 12 pieces 'by Arthur" Smith and his "crackerjacks" on an MGM record (12- inch, LP, NARTB curve E-32S6) should be for them. Smith wrote a piece called "Guitar Boogie" some years back that any but the deaf couldn't have avoided hearing:. As a performer, Smith, of'Char- lotte, N.C., is an extraordinary guitar and banjo picker. His solo pieces on this recording probably would 'intrigue persons who don't especially fancy hill-billy music. The best of these is a Spanish guitar piece called, "Half Moon." Another.', form of music that reproduces '-particularly well is .Dixie- land and -the coo), or new, sound. MGM is out with a fine record of this (12-inch, LP, NARTB curve, '' It is a so-cnllcd .battle of jazz between a Dixieland outfit, including such veterans -in the everyman- :'or-himsel£ style as Jimmy McPartland and Ed Hall, 'on .one side, and such cool cats as Dlzzie Gillesple and Buddy DeFranco on the other. "Siflc." in this respect menus in the battle of the -horns, rather than sides of the record. The Dixie- landers play a piece, such as "Indiana" and then the Birdlamlcrs play it. They play some pieces together. -.":.- Tuesday; March 20, 1956 ' •• BUY A NEW 1956 FORD BEFORE LICENSE TIME (April 1st* Thad Felton's Try Sun Classified Ads—Dim 8302 Morning- Devotional George Roesner Today Dinjf'Donf School Ernie Kovac Home Tennessee Ernie Feather .Tour 'Nest TV Kitchen Movie -Date XBC Theater Date With ldf« Modem Romances Queen For A Day Howdy Doody Roy Rogers " World At Larg-e Les Paul-Mary Font News; Weather Eddie Fisher XC-TS Caravan Screen Director Father Knows Best Gildersleeve Waterfront Tliis Is Your Life Academy Awards Xews; Weather Tonight THE TEXAS LAW ENFORCEMENT CONFERENCE, sponsored annual!)- by Attorney General John Ben Shepperd, left, will be held in Austin March 18-21.
