THE Portland Symphony Orchestra
will give its first concert of the
sixth season next Sunday" after
noon at 3 o'clock at the Eleventh
Etreet Theater, Eleventh and Morrison
streets, which will be the home of the
orchestra this season.
M. Christensen, president of the or
chestra and president almost since its
organization, one of its associate con
ductors, will direct, and the programme
chosen by him is practically new in its
entirety in rendition in Portland. The
principal offering will be Beethoven's
"First Symphony," which is new to
many musicians in this city. Other
works will be "Academic" overture
(Brahms); "In Den Spinnenstuben"
(Dvorak); "The Tune From County
Derry" (Grainger), and the ballet music
from "Le Ctd" .(Massenet). None of
these, with the exception of "Academic"
overture and "In Den Spinnenstuben"
has been played previously in this city.
"Academic" overture, built on old Ger
man college song themes, was included
in the repertoire of a concert last rea
son, and Dvorak's "In Den Spinnen
etuben," for strings and one horn was
played by Theodore Damrosch's orches
tra when last in this city. "The Tune
From County Derry" is one of the Aus
tralian composer, Grainger's, best com
positions and is built on old folk songs.
Massenet's ballet will be a worthy rep
resentation of the French school of
Friday morning at 10 o'clock the or
chestra will hold its final rehearsal at
the Eleventh-street Theater, when
about 2000 Portland school children
will be -special guests.
MUSIC FOLKS TO MEET.
The Oregon State Music Teachers'
'Association has secured Interesting and
able speakers and musicians for its
first annual convention, to be held in
this city November 30 to December 2,
iVilliam R. Boone, chairman of the
programme committee, says that the
complete programme is not yet ready.
Some of those who will appear on
that occasion are William F. Gaskins,
of Oregon Agricultural College; Pro
fessor Ralph H. Lyman, of University
of Oregon; Dr. Max P. Cushing. of Reed
College: Miss Clements, of Albany Col
lege: Mrs. Frankel, Miss Isom, Jacob
Kanzler. L. R. Alderman. Eugene
Brooking and Charles Berg, of Port
"It is hoped the attendance will be as
large as the splendid programme and
jteneral arrangements for a royal good
time will deserve," says the commit
tee. "Every teacher of music in Ore
gon is urged to become a member by
sending the annual fee of ?2 to either
the president, John Claire Monteith, or
Daniel H. Wilson, secretary. Every
music teacher who- is progressive will
wish to aid the work of the association
with the membership fee, even though
he cannot attend, for the time has come
when teachers of music must organize
and make a strong stand for better
musical conditions in Oregon. That in
union there is strength is the principle
through which may be worked out the
problems confronting musical Oregon.
For the honor, of the music profession
let all music teachers consider them
selves as host to those from out of
town, and feel the responsibility of the
success of the convention rest tipon
them. This convention (as well as the
hard work it entails) is not for the
presiding officers and their staff alone,
but for all who teach music in Oregon.
COMPOSER'S IDENTITY LOST,
It Is easy to discover the names of
eomposers of many National songs. But
one National song of Wales, "The
March of the Men of Harlech," has a
composer, who, according to experts,

Archibald Sparke thus writes in that
remarkable combination of literary
and miscellaneous research, notes and
queries: " "The March of the Men of
Harlech or, to use its Welsh title.
Khyfelgyrch Gwyr Harlech." is said to
be 'beyond question the finest speci
men of martial music in the world.'
The composer's name is unknown; it
was probably composed during the
wars oi tne itoses, when Harlech Cas

Earl of Pembroke, for Edward IV
(1468-69). Richard Llwyd savs:
" 'We are indebted to this siege for

so much the subject of conversation in
the country that it gave rise to a
malediction still living in the voice of
the neighborhood. "Yn Harlech r

WHITE SALMON. Wash., Nov. 4. (Special.) Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Bates, of
Kabekonla ranch, on Burdoin Heights, celebrated their golden wedding an
niversary October 26 with an elaborate dinner party. Mr. and Mrs. Matt
Clarke. Mrs. Sarah Stimson. of Portland, and W. S. Bates, of Taconia. were
here for the occasion, besides members of the family and close friends from
here. Mrs. Bates was Miss Julia Belville. of Dayton, O., and was born May
22, 1S43. Mr. Bates was born in Cincinnati January 27, 1842.
They were married in Dayton October 26. 1866. They have four children:

Herbert, the Earl's brother, received
from the stout defender this answer:
"I held a tower in France till all the
women in Wales heard of it, and now
all the women in France shall hear
how I defend this castle." Famine,
however, at length succeeded, and the
intrepid Welshman made an honor
able capitulation." The old words, if
they ever existed have perished; the-
u elsh verses in present use were writ

was introduced into England by John
Thomas, harpist to Queen Victoria, at
St. James Hall, on July 4, 1862.' "

"Debussyeske" effects. It was first
performed at the MacDowell festival,
August. 1914, at Peterborough,' N. H..

a certain section will be reserved for
friends of the chorus.
Miss Leah Cohen has consented to
sing at the first lecture to be given by
Mpses Barltz at the Turn Hall, Fourth
and Yamhill streets. Wednesday night.
The lecture method that Mr. Barltz will
adopt is to analyze the music and com
pare the particular opera with the rest
or the composers work.
"The chief idea," says Mr. Barltz, "Is
to eschew all musical phraseology and
impart to the uninitiated something
that they have rarely examined." The
whole series of lectures will be inter
spersed with instrumental selections.
Before each song or piece is played, the
lecturer explains what the words are.
and will impress the listener to be
aware of certain phrases that appear in
tne song. The plot of the opera will
be told in clear language, as this is
the main factor in appreciating the
opera. The fact that many solos will
be sung in Italian will in no way de
tract from the understanding. Wednes
day night Caruso will sing, by record
route, about six songs: Titto Ruffo will
be heard In the prologue from "Pag
liaccl," Emmy Destinn, Geraldine
Farrar, Pasquale Amato and the rest of
the world's greatest singers will also
contribute to the evening's programme,

ranged by E. Maldwyn Evans for the

only.-delivered at the offices of the or
chestra. No tickets will be given to
those who apply personally. Applica
tions for tickets must be marked on the
outside '"Sunday concerts" and must
contain a self -addressed stamped en
velope for reply. The management re
serves to itself the right to allot these
tickets according to its own judgment,
and does not guarantee tickets to every
applicant. At the same time, it is stat
ed, the Philadelphia Orchestra must
within the next two weeks secure
pledges of $12,000 annually the next
five years, or (60.000 in all, in order to
cover the liberal offer of a patron who
has promised to make Rood all de
ficiencies during that period. Already
$88,000 a year has been subscribed, but
this must be brought up to $100,000 In
order to Insure the proposed endow
ment fund of $500,000. The Portland
Symphony Orchestra will likely give
free concerts at the time It secures Its
endowment fund, say, of $100,000. Yes,
$100,000 would do.
