ever this year. ; " '
- The problem, of what to gire
neighbors, friends and relatives
will be solved! by thousands this
season with a gayly decorated bas
"ket filled with delicious, season
able fancy groceries, and maybe a
holly-paper wrapped ham.
. And of course the big pleasure
at Christmas time is the siring of
needed gifts of staple groceries to
. less fortunate families. This year
a tine basket can be filled for less
' than a dollar, and for two or
three dollars a most impressive
box of groceries can be given
enough to last a family for days
The real advantage In giving
' grocery gifts is that they are gifts
that everyone enjoys. Moreoyer,
there's almost no limit to the as

packing both fancy and staple
Christmas boxes or baskets, priced
.from as little as 60 cents to $10.
Last year thousands of dollars
worth ot grocery gifts were sent
from the Pacific coast as far east
as the Atlantic seaboard. - Grocers
have arranged all sorts of gifts-

Concerto is Brilliant
Salem is having an opportunity
this winter season to attend an
unusual number of fine concerts.
The neit musical offering is
scheduled for Tuesday night at
the Capitol theatre when Miss
Winifred Byrd will appear as so
loist with the Portland Symphony
One of the most brilliant num
bers on the evening's program
will be theLiszt Concerto in E
flat played by Miss Byrd with the
The concerto was performed
for the first time at Weimar in
1855, with Liszt himself as the
pianist and Berlioz the cond actor
of the orchestra. The form of the
composition is along the lines ot
the symphonic poem, a form or
iginated by Liszt. The internal de
velopment is much freer than that
of the symphony.
The first theme is given out by
A the 8 t r i n g s with interrupting
chords of wood-wind and brass
leading to an elaborate cadenza
for the piano. The second theme.
Quasi Adagio, is announced by
the deeper strings, muted, and is
taken up by the piano over flow
ing left-hand arpeggios.
A long trill for the piano, em
bellished by melodies from var
ious instruments of the orches
tra, leads to the third section, a
bright scherzo by the strings de
veloped capriciously by the piano.
This sectior closes with a pianis
simo cadenza for the piano fol
lowed by an allegro passage lead
ing to the finale.
The closing section employs the
second theme transformed into a
spirited march with "which the
