Classes of Schools.
Addresses, discussions, receptions
and many musical numbers, both vo
cal and instrumental, marked the
opening of the 1919 convention of the

in session yesterday in the Multnomah
hotel. At each event the attendance
varied between 100 and 200 musicians,
mostly from this city.
Music in the Public Schools" was
discussed by Dr. J. J. Landsbury, dean
of music. University of Oregon, and
Mrs. Jean Park McCracken of this
city. At the luncheon, under the aus
pices of the Musicians' club of this
city, the speaker was William Mansell
vv llder, who discussed "Music and the
Mui la School" Topic.
At the afternoon session Miss Abby
Whiteside of this city played in ad
mired style piano solos from Mac
Dowell, Ayres, Aubert, Blanchet and
Dohnanyl. Miss Carolyn Alchin of
Los Angeles, Cal., a lecturer on mu
si cal subjects and also an authority on
harmony in music, gave an address on
"Music in the Public Schools" and
dealt largely with the technical side
of the question.
"In Los Angeles schools the ques
tion In musical matters is, 'What can
you do?' " said Miss Alchin. "We may
as well recognize the fact that quite
a number of young people do not get
any musical education unless it is
acquired by them in the grade schools.
In consequence, that is why we think
that harmony, form, counterpoint and

A discussion followed, in which the
peakers, including William H. Boyer,
greed that harmony is a necessary

of graded schools.
Music Much Admired.
At the evening session music was
rendered by Dent Mowrey, pianist;
Mrs. Pauline Miller Chapman, mezzo
soprano dramatic; Professor Rex Un
derwood, violinist, and Otto Wede-
meyer, baritone. Their solos were
very much admired, especially by the
out-of-town delegates. Mr. Wede-
meyer sang two dramatic num
bers by Haydn ' and Balakirev,
and Mrs. Chapman used selec-
ions by Ronald, Si guard Lie and
Tschaikowsky, the songs chosen
showing the beauty of her lovely
voice. Mr. Mowrey played with superb
taste and skill several of his own dra
matic compositions, the chief and
most beautiful being Mr. Mowrey's
'Suite Orientale." Professor under
