Kent Audition Pvove Large
The try-out of the! singers who
entered the contest In the local
audition sponsered- by1 the AtW'ater
-Kent Radio foundation took place
Saturday evening, September 24 f
and the interest manifested both
by singers and the general public
was far greater than was general
ly anticipated owing to the short
time allowed all concerned in pre
paring for the event. Genevieve
Howard and Edward Fisher were
chosen to represent Salem.
The main auditorium of the Y.
M. C. A. was filled to capacity
with Salem's lovers of music. Fif
teen vocalists entered the contest
and appeared on the program, 11
women and four men.
Considering the short notice i
given the aspirants and the conse
quent lack of preparation on the
part of all concerned, the result
was gratifying. It showed that
Salem had quite a number of sing
ers who showed exceptional talent
and possessed promising and plea
sing voices -that are sure to come
to the front. While only two sing
ers could be chosen at this time,
other contestants gave every indi
cation of possessing voices that
with proper development and at
tention will attain future promin
ence, Genevieve Howard and Edward
