29 AUDITIONS IN
SEARCH FOR TALENT
During the last two weeks, twen
ty-nine auditions have been tuid
ii the search for new members for
Omaha’s little Symphony Orchestra
which is sponsored by the Omaha
Civis Music Association. Among
the musicians who appeared for au
ditions are several who live dist
ances from Omaha as far as one
hundred miles. Eight Nebraska and
Iowa towns were represented by
persons experienced in the playing
of one or more instruments.
Aparticularly notable fact, accord
ing ti Mr. Richard E. Duncan, dir
ector of the orchestra, is that war
industries have brought several tal
ented musicians temporarily resid
ing in Omaha, and innumerable
people who show an active interest
in music. “In fact, all in all, a
somewhat new picture of musical
talent has been evidenced, and sev
eral new discoveries have resulted
from thse auditions, ” says Mr. Dun
Although last year there was a
scarcity of flute players, necessit
ating the importiig of one from Lin

appeared for auditions. This year
we expect to have three talented
flute players, one of whom will al
ternately play the flute and the
There is a vacancy for a bassoon
ist in the orchestra, and Mr. Dun
can says that unless oie is found in
Omaha, it will be necessary for
him to take another scouting trip
to places such as Sioux City, Des
Moines, Or perhaps to Lincoln.
Among the instruments played by
persons receiving auditions, have
been the flute, piccolo, oboe, violin,
french horn, trombone, clarinet, cel
lo, and viola.
Announcement of the persons cho
sen to become new members of this
symphony will be made by Mr. Dun
can in a few days.

Many homes break up from lack of
children and contribute to the amazing
American record of one divorce for
every five marriages. Unhappy wives,

new vitamin of the B Compter group
has a striking effect on sterility. Twenty
two women, with known sterility records
for as much as five years were selected
for the test. After weeks of heavy dosage
with Paraaminobenzoic acid (a vitamin
of the B Complex group) more than
half of these women became mothers.
Many of these women had been told
their condition was hopeless. The vita
