MARIAN ANDERSON TO
APPEAR IN CONCERT
(Continued from page 3)
Revolution, causing Mrs. Frankl.n
D. Roosevelt to resign from that
oiganization and prompting tl»e
| United States Government to of
j fer her the use of Lincoln Memor
ial for an outdoor concert in Wash
j ington. Such an honor, unpreced
ented, was a fitting tribute to the
greatest concert personality in the
memory of our time.
Still Miss Anderson constantly
seeking out the coaching services
of various song specialists. Dur
ing one summer she was coached
j in the works of Gustave Mahler by
.Mine. Charles Cahier; she studied
Italian songs with Jeni Sadero of
Rome; French songs with Mine.
Geramine de Castro.
The season of 1939-40 saw Miss
Anderson break her own record by
appearing in more than seventy
cities to give ninety-two concerts
between November and June.'Five
of these were ia Carnegie Hall in
New York. Following this, she
sailed on her first visit to Hawaii
for a series of recitals, and return
ed to the United States in time to
sing at the larger stadium in the
East, such as New York’s Lewis
ohn Stadium and Philadelphia’s
Robin Hood Dell.
A sign of how deeply this great
woman and singer has become
rooted in the lives of her audienc
es is that twenty-six clubs have
sprung up through the country
which use her name as their title.
In addition to her regular con
cert itinerary, the season of 1910-41
was distinguished by her native
Philadelphia conferring the $10,009
Bok award upon her in March.
Three months later, Temple Uni
versity presented her with an Hon
orary Doctorate of Music.
In March 1942, the singer estab
lished the Marian Anderson Award
with the $10,000 she received as the'
Bok prize. Through a committee
of three who are administering the
fund the contralto is sponsoring
young talented men and women in
the pursuit of their musical and
educational g-oals. The first annual
awards were granted in January,
1943. the prizes totalling $2,700.
That same month recorded two
more major incidents in the event
ful life of this great person. The
mural commemorating the Lincoln
Memorial concert of Easter Sunday
1939 was dedicated by Secretary
Harold L. Ickes in the Department
of Interior Building in Washing

In May 1943 the beloved singer
paid her first visit to Mexico where
in the short space of fourteen days
she gave six concerts in Mexico
City alone, all of them sold out
two weeks in advance.
The summer was spent resting
and in preparation for her current
ninth tour which S. Hurok prepar

deferment on Occupational Bullet

editors and several other employes
of newspapers as eligible for con
sideration for deferment- Also it
was pointed out in the various ap
peals that there was a critical
shortage of trained newspaper
men and women and replacements
were practically impossible.
The heads of three of Memphis’
leading Negro organizations joined
in asking a deferment for Editor
Swingler on the grounds that the
