Sunday, April 13. 1975, THE HERALD, FLORENCE JEPPERSON MADSEN, right, presented this painting to the Madsen Memorial Chorus of the Women's Council for the Women's Cultural Center. It was painted by her father, Samuel Jepperson, and has been in her home for many years. Mrs. Chloe Salisbury, left, chairman and Mrs. Faye Loveless, director of the group accepted the painting. On Tuesday Spring Concert Set by Chorale Currently in its tenth year of performances, the Ralph Woodward Chorale will present its annual spring concert Tuesday at 8:15 p.m. in the Provo Tabernacle. Music to be performed on the concert will cover a wide range of musical styles and promises to Starting at 707 Years Again include "something for everyone," according to Dr. Ralph Woodward, director of the 35-member civic chorale. Selections will include music of the masters as well as lighter classics and contemporary numbers. In addition to selections by Handel and Purcell, the chorale will perform "Three Songs on Verses by Emily Dickenson" by 1 Brigham Young Universities composer in residence Dr. Merrill Bradshaw, who dedicated the pieces to the By STEWART POWELL ANTRIM, N.H. (UPI) - The children of Antrim, a rural New Hampshire community of 1,720, think John "Grandpa" Caughey should start again at 101. The retired builder awoke on the eve of his 101st birthday earlier this month to find fire had claimed the beloved studio and artist's life he began a dozen years ago. The rustic stove- heated studio he built at 89 was in ruins, nearly 100 cherished paintings destroyed. But the chiseled Yankee and his family immediately vowed to rebuild. Caughey's 62-year-old son John, Antrim's assistant fire chief, called the loss a blessing in disguise. You've got to keep going all the harder when things get tough." And residents young and old answered the unwritten New England tradition, pledging to help their neighbor through hard times. A builder donated 2,000 board feet of lumber, the Chamber of Commerce raised $260 and a benefit basketball game is scheduled Wednesday. But the aid he values most, says his granddaughter, has come from school children. He used to carry his art into the classroom and the kids remember that. They've raised $108. "He's known as Grandpa Caughey around here and he's not so far removed from the kids as some other older people are," said Donna Nichols, a secretary at the town hall. The bulldozers have finished what the fire March 6 began. The charred remains of the studio are gone and a hole lies where the new foundation will be laid. "We hope to have it done by the summer," said granddaughter Florence Caughey, 22. "He's already starting to paint off and on, THE ICE CAPADES, featuring Jo Starbuck, left, and Ken Shelley, will appear Tuesday through Sunday at the Salt Palace Arena.

The remainder of the program will feature American selections, including an arrangement of music from George Gershwin's "Porgy and Bess," the folk song "Sourwood Mountain," and the lively "Ride on, King Jesus," a spiritual featuring tenor Jon Green.

ByLYNNTlLTON "Mythological Creatures: A Pictorial Dictionary," by Paulita Sedgwick and published by Holt Rinehart Winston, though designed as a reference book for children, is a valuable book for anyone interested in mythology.

Ice Capades Will Open This Week SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - It's a show of mirth and merrymaking, movement and music, all played on a smooth white stage of ice. It's the 35th anniversary edition of Ice Capades, opening Tuesday at the Salt Palace Arena through Sunday. This new edition opens with a salute to the birth of a new era in entertainment. It's "Origins 35" and introduces two new stars, dramatic Paul Guzman and seductive Dawn Seesler. Adagio stars Peter and Barbara perform a duet. Little David Lucas finds a dream come true when his Watch Cat toy transports him to a special land where "it's Christmas every Day." Giant lollipops and alphabet blocks dot the landscape, while toy soldiers, marionettes, Swiss dolls, and four delightful Christmas seals entertain their young visitor. A "Stereopticon" gives the audience a look at a '30's style nightclub.

She is also an actress and a world traveler, and a native of Haiti where she said she got her first taste for the mythical, the magical, the unexplainable. Although the volume is described as a dictionary, perhaps because the beings are listed alphabetically, it is highly readable from page one on. The book is ideal for those who desire to leam a little more about the various mythological creatures and will serve as a springboard for launching into lesser known mythologies. For example, one entry states: Chi Lyn is the wondrous Chinese Unicorn. He is like a deer with a single flesy horn. He steps so gently, even the grass does not bow under him. Unwilling to harm living things, he eats fallen leaves and plants already dead. As the marvelous Chi Lyn appears only when a righteous ruler is born, the last one seen was in the days of Confuci- ous. So, although they live a thousand years, they are very scarce." Under this blurb is a line drawing of the beneficient beast. The book discusses mythical creatures from Acephali at the front of the book to Zombie, the last entry. The book is good for firing imaginations of youths and adults alike. Musicianship Festival Will Be Held A musicianship festival for approximately 150 students of the Robert Pace piano instruction method has been scheduled Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Harris Fine Arts Center on the Brigham Young University Campus.

Carolyn Talbot of Bountiful will adjudicate Saturday's festival. Wedding Stationery Wetilni Imltttioni, Kipklni, Thank You NotM.

DOUGLAS LOCAL PRODUCERS of the musical hit "Saturday's Warrior" Lex de Azevedo, at piano, and Dough Stewart, author and lyricist of the play, discuss the success of the show and upcoming performances to be 5th Week Running sponsored by Omega Productions which they own. "Saturday's Warrior" is currently playing at the Spanish Fork High School Auditorium. Musical Drama Is Successful During its five week run, the LDS musical, "Saturday's Warrior," has played to over 24,000 paying customers of Utah Valley, with every show at the Spanish Fork High School auditorium, a sell out. According to the director, Norlan Jacobs, "This achievement stands alone as far as Mormon theatre, and it's not over yet, with the increasing demand pushing the show into one extension after another.'' Writer, Doug Stewart and composer, Lex de Azevedo, owners of Omega Productions Inc., and former students of Brigham Young University are not surprised at the overwhelming success their musical has received. "People are looking for entertainment that uplifts and inspires," says Stewart. "Combine this with a professionalism that competes with the best the world has to offer and the result has to be magic." If "Warrior's" success in Utah Valley were not enough, simultaneously, Omega has another production of the show which has been running seven weeks in Los Angeles in the plush 1700 seat Scottish Rite Auditorium of Wilshire Blvd. The standing room audiences at the L.A. show recently attracted a reviewer from the national entertainment journal, "Variety," who described "Saturday's Warrior," as "A pleasant change from the bulk of fare being offered, the demand for which seems to be reflected in the show's box office." Stewart and Azevedo have written a new musical called "Morning Watch" which will be produced in Utah Valley next year. In the mean time, their new company will be doing productions of "The Order is Love," and "A Day, A Night & A Day." "Saturday's Warrior," has been extended another week and will end on April 26. Tickets are available through Omega Productions in Provo. The L.A. cast features members of the Lettermen, the King Family, Ray Coniff Singers and other Mormons in show business.
