The drive for the Symphony So
ciety of Portland has started with
the mailing of several thousand let
ters to residents In Portland and
vicinity. The object of the drive is
to finance the symphony orchestra
by a paid membership of 800 -new
members by the end of this week.
There are already more than 200
members in the symphony society.
The letters which initiate the drive
are explanatory of the purposes of
the society, namely, to aid in the
support of the symphony orchestra,
and to increase the number of peo
ple vitally Interested in the concerts.
Persons well known in Portland
are on the list of those working to
make the drive a success. James B.
Kerr, president, and William D.
Wheelwright, vice-president of the
society, are actively interested in the
drive. Mrs. William MacMaster, also
a vice-president of the symphony so
ciety. Is general chairman of the
drive. Mrs. William C. Alvord and
Mrs. David T. Honeyman are the
two colonels. They will select ten
captains who will organize teams to
act on the membership routine.
Directors to Aid Campaign.
All the officers and directors of
the symphony society will bear part
in the new enterprise. They are as
follows: James B. Kerr, president;
William D. Wheelwright, vice-presi- I
dent; Mrs. William MacMaster, vice
president; Mrs. W. B. Ayer, vice-
president; Mrs. Sigmund Frank, vice-
president; Guy W. Talbot, vice
president; Ira F. Powers, vice-president;
J. C. Ainsworth, treasurer;
Mrs. Henry L. Corbett, secretary;
Mrs. M. Donald Spencer, assistant
secretary; Miss Isabella Gauld, Eric
V. Hauser, Mrs. T. D. Honeyman,
Kurt Koehler, Charles F. Berg,
Edgar B. Piper, Mrs. Robert Strong,
A. R. Watzek.
Every season the Portland Sym
phony orchestra draws larger
houses, said Mr. Kerr yesterday.
The interest in symphonic music is
growing. Why, then, people ask,
is not the orchestra self-supporting?
The reason is-simple. The music
played by a symphony orchestra is
extremely involved. It requires a
large number of rehearsals. This
means expense. The rent of a hall
for practice and the pay of each per
former for each rehearsal amount
practically to the outlay that would
be required in giving a public con
cert. And there is no return. The
single concert which crowns the
work of practice is Inadeqaate to
reimburse the treasury.
'If. like a play, a symphony pro
gramme could run for a week in the
city where it is given, its finances
would be on a better basis', ifiven
when an orchestra travels to other
cities to concertlze, the expenses en
route make a hole in the profits.
'With all their superior advan
tages of frequent performances,
plays frequently come out on the
wrong side of the ledger. How much
more the orchestra with its one city
"These facts are well known to
those who have had any inside ex
perience with symphony orchestras.
. Concert Cost Is Low, .
"The Portland Symphony orchestra
gave six concerts last season, four
popular programmes, and a chil
dren's concert. In addition the or
chestra played two concerts on tour.
The cost of the concerts was about
$25,000. This figure is unusually
low in comparison with the cost of
orchestral" concerts in other cities,
particularly when the high quality
of the performances is taken into
"The production cost of the con
certs last season was partly covered
by the door receipts at popular
prices, which amounted in all to
about $13,000. Nevertheless the an
nual deficit was $12,000. This deficit
annually occurring, has been met,
year after year by about 65 Portland
citizens men and women for the
benefit of all the rest. Year after
year they have patiently footed the
bills for the concerts which are such
a delight to all Portland, and which
bring in many people from out-of-town
districts and from nearby
states which have no symphony or
chestra of their own.
More Friends Are Sought.
'The drive has been instituted to
widen the personal interest in the

ganization requires public backing
and public backing means the actual
enlistment of representative citizens
in the ranks of active workers in

"In order that Portland Symphony
