MRS. SUTCLIFFE’S PUPILS
PRESENT PLEASING RECITAL
Mrs. Bessie Lewis Sutcliffe pre­
sented her piano pupils in u pleas­
ing recital at the high school audi­
torium Friday evening to a large
and appreciative audience. On the
program were 25 numbers, ranging
from simple primary studies to mas­
terpieces of classical composition.
A largo number, unable to obtain
seats, filled much of the available
standing room and remained until
the end of the long program.
Few’ cities are blessed with so
large a percentage of discriminating
music lovers as Cottage Grove; and
though many of these have begun
to fear that tho art of the musician
is being slowly but surely sub
merged in the raucous racket and
stuttering syncopation of the schooi
of jazz, there were both encourage­
ment and inspiration in the spec­
tacle of a class of 56 students, rang­
ing upward from six or seven years
of age, presenting a comprehensive
program of good music in a manner
which surely could have pleased
none so much as the instructor.
Technique and execution were uni­
formly excellent throughout.
Among the advanced students.
Gordon’s Wright’s interpretation of
Rnchmaninoff’s “Prelude in G
Minor’’ was perhaps the most im­
pressive, although Leo Brand’s
spirited work in Koelling’s “Hun­
gary’’ brought nn enthusiastic and
well deserved encore and little Miss
Thelma Kent played the Chaminade
“Arabesque” with all the grace,
artistry and aplomb of a finished
concert performer.
Several two-piano and three-pinno
solos demonstrated a precision of
tempo almost metronomic, as did
likewise a three-piuno, 18-hand num­
ber which was heartily received.
Mrs. Arah Hoyt Rae, popular
Eugene contralto, sang the “ Harvest
Lullaby” and “Thank God for the
Harvest” and was enthusiastically
encored and recalled. Mrs. Victor
Kem. popular local soprano, sang
“The Wind’s in the South“ and
responded to an encore with the
Kashmiri song, “Pale Hands.”
Memorial Service Sunday.
Commissioner Sharp’s home terri­
tory stood by him. The recall
against him lost by 87 votes in the
city. Lorqpe precinct alone, in
this end of the county, gave a
favorable vote on the recall against
Sharp, although in Cottage Grove
No. 1 the recall against Roney was
favorable by 4 votes uud Sharp had
a lead of only 2.

4 * also ran” in his contest with
Congressman Hawley.
Cottage Grove’s candidate for the
democratic nomination for county
commissioner, W. T. Poole, failed to
land.
There was a great deal of misun­
derstanding of the ballot. Counting
boards report that many voted to
oust the commissioners and then
voted to put them in again, while
others voted against the recall and
then voted for the recall candidate
instead of for the commissioner.
Many were confused by the fact
that the name of Commissioner
Sharp appeared upon the regular re­
publican ballot as well as upon the
recall ballot. They did not realize
that Commissioner Sharp’s term
would have expired next January
and that it was necessary to nomi­
nate someone as a candidate in
November regardless of the result
of the recall. Clinton Hurd, who
will take Mr. Sharp’s place, is also
the regular republican nominee for
the general election in November.
Despite the intense interest in the
recall election and in some of the
other contests, there was less than
a 50 per cent vote.
J. S. Medley, former resident, re­
ceived a handsome complimentary
vote from his former neighbors
here for the democratic nomination
for district attorney. One man who
said he had voted but once in his
life went to the polls particularly
to vote for Medley.
Vote by precincts in Cottage
Grove on contested offices was as

Becoming a grandmother at 40 ia
no feat at all in this favored sec­
tion of the famous, fertile, fruitful
Willamette. The Sentinel published
last week the names of two grand­
mothers, one becoming such at 41
years and the other at 43 years.
Since then word has been received
from Mrs. A. L. Monroe, who is
now on a motor tour with her hus­
band, She became a grandmother
at 36 but did not enter The Semi­
uel ’a contest because she thought
there would be others much younger,
Her oldest grandchild is Edgar
Roy Smith, of Eugene, son of her
daughter Margaret (Scheufele). He
wus born August 12, 1920. The
grandmother will not be 40 years
ol age until July 6 of this year,
while the grandson will be four
years of age the next month.

Staff Gives Way and He
Falls Under Wheels.
A little girl is very unhappy be­
cause her playmate, a Collie dog,
has been missing for a week. A
wanted in this issue offers a re­
ward for the return of the dog, but
the ad does uot tell all the story.
The little girl is the six-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Per­
kins Jr. The dog was her constant
companion and faithful guardian.
On last Thursday Mrs. Perkins and
the daughter visited at the school
house in the Walden district. It was
thought that tho dog must have
followed them and must have
strayed away or might have been
stolen by someone.
The person who returns tho dog,
or gives information leading to its
recovery, will not only receive u
material reward but will be more
fully rewarded by the happiness
that will be brought to the little
girl whose tears show how much
she misses her pet.
