Music Week Plans
Stir Active Interest
Mrs. Walter Denton who has
been made chairman of state
'good music week" and the first
person in the history of Oregon's
participation In good music week
to hold this position, announces
that interest is running high, so
high in fact that she is kept busy
answering Inquiries that come
from all over the state.
All the small towns as well as
the larger ones are giving much
time in preparation for special
music. Perhaps one of the. most
inspiring programs is that which
is being planned by Hubbard. This
little town is a music center In
everyday life so that it has a
band, a chorus, an orchestra, and
no end of soloists to take up the
special work of music week. Two
things that they plan to do is of
unusual interest. A symposium of
musical discussion for the whole
community is one of the events,
and the churches in community
cooperation are presenting a chor
us program under direction of Lu
cian Becker of Portland. Satur
day night will complete the week's
plans. This will be an old fash
ioned community dance.
The friendly cooperation which
comes from the community effort
of sponsoring good music is of
as much value as the. splendid ef
fects of the music.
Tournament teams for ladies
