Quartet Receives
High Praise
In South -
The Keah - Kah - Nie quartet,
which will present the last of the
series of three concerts' In Salem :
Tuesday at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Hal Pat ton. Is receiving real
ovations In California, where they
have been tourin for several
weeks past. - -y-
The quartet gare a concert' In
San Francisco and the San Fran
cisco Examiner for March 28 had
this to say about the program: m
The Quartet, which is headed
by Susie Fennell Pipes and in
cludes Alexander Murray, Hubert
Sorenson and Michel, Penha, gave
a concert at the home of Miss
RemlUard. They played two Quar
tets, the Haydn in' O from Opus
76 and Smetana's "Ass Meinem
Leben"and, between . the . two
were sandwiched Arensky's beau
tiful variations on the Tschaikow
sky carol "Christ When a Child
"This is a auartet with high
possibilities of achievement. Susie
Pipes is mercurial and has an in
gradaUng suavity of tone;- the
second' violin, Alexander .Murray,
has " technique , and . masculinity;
the viola player, Hubert Sorenson,
disengages a lovely-tone and -has
a real flair for the genius of his
Instrument; Michel Penha.' as ev
eryone knows, is a master of the
cello. ;. : . .-t . l:;' -f
They play with distinction; they
put theii heart Into the work,
They will go far. Here, at last,
thank God, is a quartet unspoiled
by - commercialism. ' They are a
yonng organisation;' but they are
rich in 'legitimate 'hopes. San
Francisco, will welcome their re-
Chamber musie ' Is of ancient'
origin. It originally had appllcav
tion to any small group of Instru
ments, strings or - other- instm-
ments, heard in homes and play
ing delicate, individually beauti
ful, music From this Idea of
chamber musie the present con
caption of strings, .mostly quartets-
or trios,' has grown. -' r. :
Among the .most famous . mu
sical organisations -in ' the world
was the Flonzaley quartet, which
has only- recently disbanded. A
group- of Hungarian quarets which
are well known, in . the : United
States are Roths, the Lener quar
tet. Which is most often heard in
quartet recordings,- and the Buda
pest quartet. -' , & i r
Pro-Arts and the London String
quartets have both been heard in
Portland. The New York quartet
is another well known group, as
is the Gordan quartet of New
York. ':
Quaret music has proved to be!
especially fine for radio recording..
One of the most beautiful record-,
lngs either. for the radio or pho
nograph records has proved to be
the "Double Concerto," written by
Brahms. This has grown to be a.
special favorite of radio audiecces.
The program which will be
played by the Neah-Kah-Nie quar
tet Tuesday night promises to be
as delightfully pleasing as the two
which have been given. r
A number of special guests will
be present : for this program,
among them it is anticipated will
be Governor and Mrs. Julius
Meier. The hosts for the evening
are announced- as Mr-and Mrs.
Hal Patton. - assisted by Mr. and

question that will be referred to

The option came up for discus
sion' at a meeflng of the board
here Friday - Xor; the purpose qf
considering proposals, for gasoline-
and other motor vehicle fuels
used by the state during: the cur
rent year. .The i Associated Oil
company submitted the low bid
of 10.9 eents per gallon for: gaso
line delivered fn bulk In Port
land. Deliveries in other sections
of the state- were based on the
Portland quotation, plus the
freight differential.- - , f i - :

Option's Legality - V . ,
Governor!' Meier questioned the
legality of the option with the
General - Petroleum corporation,
which provides that at the' expir
ation ot Its 1930 contract with
the state if would hate the priv
ilege of ' eontinaing - its sales- ot
gasoline to the state on the basis
of the low. bid for the year, 1931.
"It looks to A ine ; as though
there is nigger inr the wood
pile." said Governor Meier in dis
cussing: the option. 'V ;.v r
' State Treasurer Kay declared
that it looked to him as though
something: had been put over on
the board ot control at the -time
the 1930 gasoline contract was
awarded.- ;-- , . i '
Kay suggested that the option
be .referred to -the attorney gen
eral to determine whether It Is
binding. This was agreeable to
Governor Meier and Secretary ot
State Hoss. - -
Governor Meier ' declared that
the option was discriminatory In
that it gave the General Petrole
um, corporation 'a distinct: . ad
vantage - over - the competing oil
distributors. . . t- . j
Part Of Contract , I .
Made la 18SO . ..
Carle Abraas, secretary of. the
state board of control,; said the
option was a part of the contract
entered Into with - the t: General
Petroleum corporation in Febru
ary, 1930, covering the purchases
of . gasoline for a period of one
year. : : - I-: ",..,-'"-: tr. , ' '
. Hoji declared that he. had no
recollection of the , option, and
never saw.it until a few days ago.
- Awarding ; of the contract for
furnishing gasoline to the state ot
Oregon during the current year
was deferred until; the- attorney
general ha$ ruled on the option
with the General Petroleum cor
poration. - -' t.': 1 -
In case this option Is held to be
valid, the board ot control may
be compelled to continue its pur
chases from the General corpora
tion. This 'would depend, how
ever, upon whether the General
Petroleum ; ' corporation -' would
quote gasoline price as low. or
lower than 10.9 cents per gallon.
