Here Is the "foreword" of the Mac-
Dowell Club this season, a message
written by the president, Mrs. Thomas
Carrick Burke: "The gravity of the
world situation today, in which both
the art treasures -of the centuries and
the creative talent of today are being
destroyed on every battle front, en
hances rather than diminishes the
value of any organised group which, is
trying to stimulate a feeling for art.
There could never be greater need for
things of the spirit than at this mo
ment when civilization is writhing in
agony and uncertainty. Men and
women now. hunger more deeply for
music, for beauty in every form, not
merely because these things delight
and uplift, but because they offer a
golden moment of f orgetf ulness and
balm to anxious and sorrowing hearts.
An organization of the strength and
the ideals of the MacDowell Club must
not be lost, but must be continued with
the understanding that its resources
and the talent which it includes shall
be used wherever they may be most
useful in this crisis. Every member
will be glad to know that we have
bought t500 worth of liberty bonds
and that the garden pageant which we
gave at Rockholm yielded $500 for-the
Red Cross. It is proposed to open
headquarters, at once, where a Mac
Dowell Club unit will work under the
direction of a newly-created war serv
ice committee, materials being bought
with our treasury fund or voluntarily
contributed. We shall continue to sup
port the symphony orchestra and the
MacDowell Memorial Association, it
possible, to hold patriotic community
sings and to give concerts for the dif
ferent high schools. Negotiations are
pending for recitals by Percy Grainger
and Louis Graveure, and the usual bi
monthly club programmes will be sup
plemented by concerts for the soldiers
at Vancouver Barracks. In brief, it is
the earnest wish of the board of direc
tors to direct the activities and expend
the money of this body as wisely as
possible, not only for the enjoyment of
our memteers. but wherever possible to
aid the Government and benefit the
brave boys who are fighting our bat
tles in France."
Joseph A. Finlcy. conductor of the

"' Musical interest in Italy Is undeni
ably centered on opera, remarks a
writer in "Musical America." "But
that interest," continues the writer,
"has become the property of the peo
ple from the highest to the very low
est. When, you note in Italy the
familiarity of tins bootblack, the cab
driver, the poorest vender of merchan
dise, with the standard operas, how
with uncultured but natural, pleasing
voices they can and do sing selections
from almost every standard work, you
will soon come to the conclusion that
In Italy musical "atmosphere" is not a
myth. If anywhere you find this "at
mosphere" In Italy. But It is the at
mosphere of operatic music, first and
last. Yes, I even make so bold as to
say that a concert by the greatest
opera singer would not nearly awaken
the same interest as the singer's as
sistance in an opera performance.
Here, as elsewhere, of course, the up
per and upper middle classes cultivate
the more absolute form of music, as
represented by symphonies, oratorios
and chamber music. Nor must the
beneficial influence f the Catholic
Charch -in the cultivation and propa
gation' of sacred music be overlooked.
But on the whole the musieaf life of
Italy is dominated by the opera."
Lucien E. Becker, organist of Trinity
Episcopal Church.' .Nineteenth and

o'clock. It has been the custom for

phasize the musical features of the

Sunday of the month. During this Win
ter Mr. Becker will devote various Sun
day evenings to programmes which will
be made up of compositions by the
various composers of different nations,
each programme containtng at least
two standard pipe-organ numbers. The
pipe organ in Trinity Church is one or
the largest west of the Rocky Moun
tains, and its exceptional tone, com
bined with the masterful playing of Mr.
Becker.- and the beauty of the church,
make one of these musical services
beautiful, educational and reverent. The
public is cordially invited and earnest
