THE OREGON STATESMAN, SALEM, OREGON
S 1 l EU I 3 M T S OF T
The famous Luther College
Concert band, from Decorah, Io
wa,: is the attraction this evening
at the Capitol theater.- Some
thing of an idea of its excellence
can be gained from the following
review of its concert, which ap
peared a few days ago in the Seat
tie Times, afterthe band had play
ed in that city
The march of ten thou
sand parades was a stirring cli
max to an evening which heard
music as it should be played.
The versatility of these college
boys was a forceful testimonial of
their sound and careful training.
Popular airs and the intricate bars
of th classics surrendered alike
to reeds and brass.
The third number of the pro
gram,' Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite,
No. 2, wa especially well inter
preted. This selection, less famil
iar than iw' companion. Suite No.
1, and more difficult, too, was
last night a masterpiece of fire
and delicate gradations.
In this visiting aggregation of
good musicians, one number
stands out from tha others. This
youngster is Sigvald R. Sporati, j
a freshman at the institution in
Decorah, la., whose mastery of the
cathedral chimes, xylophone and
traps makes him a specialty art
ist of true professional merit.
A crowd of perhaps one thou
sand music lovers heard the pro
gram, which was played on the
eve of the National Luther League
"onventlon. During this assem
bly, which began this morning, the
band- will assume an important
role, appearing tomorrow evening
in the University of Washington
stadium as a supplement to St.
Olafs choir and the choral union
of 1,000 voices.
With plays produced in London,
New York and Boston, with sever
al of them running simultaneous
ly in one or more of these cities.
A. A. Milne, the author of "The
Truth About Blayds," and "Mr.
Pirn Passes By," is certainly a
dramatist who has arrived. But
he takes his success very modest
ly, as will be seen from this brief
sketch of himself from his own
"I was born in London," says
Mr. Milne, "on Jan. 18, 1882. and
am therefore over 40 years of age,
although many people refuse to
believe it. At the age of 11 I
went to Westminster school, and
there did considerable studyins,
intermingled with work and play
on football and cricket teams. I
began writing for the school pa
per verses. parodies and such
things, and when I went to Cam
bridge I edited the Granta. fa
miliar to all students at the uni
versity. . .

come and why they are within the reach of the

better ways of doing things to every home. It
has created a desire to possess them, and count

a very moderate degree, and a
feeling among the members of my
family that I had belied the prom
ise of my youth whatever thejr
may have thought that to be. I
had even then ambitions to be
come a professional writer, and I
remember well the two cheap and
dirty rooms in a policeman's hous
in Chelsea where I lived during
my prentice days.
"By the end of my first year I
had earned about 20 pounds, and
by the close of my second year in
London it had increased to 120
pounds. In February. -1906. a
surprising thing happened. The
editor of Punch retired, the assist
ant editor was made editor, and I
was offered the assistant editor
ship. I accepted, as may be imag
ined, and immediately began to
feel important and rich.
"I remained on the staff of
Punch until 1914. when my war
service began. My first play was
produced in 1917. and since then
those who follow the dramatic
may remember what I have done.
I really think that perhaps the
critics are right, and that "The
Truth About Blayds" is one of my
best plays. But I have many otb
ers in mind, and perhaps I may
be able to write a better one."
Those who visit the Elsinore
theater next Tuesday, July 13, will
undoubtedly say that he has done
it in "Mr. Pkn Passes By."

SILVERTON, Ore., July 8.
(Special) At a meeting at Trin

ed that English services would be
held each Sunday at 11 o'clock
and that Norwegian services be

discussed by many before the

one spoke against having the Eng

hour each Sunday.
Another meeting of Trinity

"Despite the painful treatments
