Children's Mallare Kplendld. ' ' "
Chlldren'a matinee by official designa
tion and children' matinee In predoml-
naice of children, both aa singers and
audience, the Friday afternoon matinee
program of the Saengerfest was one of the
most enjoyable of the aeries. To the thous
and and more of children' who occupied the
precipice of seats reared, on the platform,
the event was one which towers high above
all other events. They shewed this fact
in their manner of entering and also ln
their careful observance cf the proprieties
of singers ln a "Saengerfest chorus."
It was a pretty slht. this crowd of b
rlbboned and brightly gowm-d young girls
and sprinkling of lads, nnd when at th
much anticipated moment the orchestra
diuctor lifted his baton and waved to them,
tha children and siadually the entlra
chorus responded, ro.u and stood ready
for song, it was an especially prettv sight
This slightly fluttered respond to the d.
rector's baton, this slow spreading of th
realization that "it's our turn now" was
humorously pleasing to the audience and It
gave the little singer the same aprecl-
atlve applauso that It gave the-. older
singer for their Immediate and simul
taneous response to the same signal.
Ther were thrill, too when these little
Americans trilled their lov for Amerlca'a
rocks land rills, .her woods and templed
hills, and also when they qurrird with real
vim, i'Oh, Say, Doe the Star-Spangled
Banner Tet Wave?" The audience ..
divided in It allegiance of these two Amer-
ican nymna, some recognizing "America'
by standing during Its singing and other
reserving their patriotism for the ".
Spangled Banner." The third chorus whlrh
the young singers gave, "Die Waoht Am
RJ.Ine," was given with good spirit and
cmplctd the program for the audience.
The choru Itself remained on the seats to
