of the Rose Bldg., is going to sell all
its handsome silk skirts this week at

softened shades on white grounds.
Then there are the fashionable Khaki
Kools with splashy designs, and ele

Filet-topped kid boots are tremend

of community singing. It
V I was only a sample, but is
was enough to prove to the
audience present its im
niense value in community work, and
in advancing the get-together idea,
Under Mr. Kelly's directing il
was interesting to see what a different
spirit was breathed through the
music than is usually expressed
It isn't that the people do not have
tne same spirit hack ot their singing
it is just that they do not hrmg it
out. They do not notice that they arc
not really expressing it, unless there
is some leaderwho by clever raillery
points it out to them, and actually
lollies them into doing it the way it
ought to sound. And then it is easv
to see the difference, the community
singing the other evening opened with
the singing of "America. Director
and pianist struck a vigorous tempo,
and it went well the very first time.
The second time it ,went much bet
ter, and at the close Mr. Kelly said
Uravo. But at the close ot the con
cert, one verse of the same song was
repeated, and than it was even better.
There was more solidarity, a greater
freedom and swing, and the leader did
not have to pull the audience to his
tempo, for the people had caught
it, and found it just as easy to sing
that way as to drai along.
Another interesting and rather
amusing feature was that the singing
improved by a marked per cent when
the lights were turned out and the
music and words were flashed upon
a screen, tins may have been partly
because there are many people who
can read and carry lower parts who
can not just guess at them from the
melody if thev do not happen to
know them. But I'd be willing to
wager that the largest part of the im
Drovement was because it was dark,
and it was easier to sing when there
was no danger of somebody in front
turning around and looking at you, a
proceeding which, when one is shy
about singing anyway, is almost
enough to completely paralyze one's
vocal chords. The chances are that
the person who turns around could
not have done half as well. Perhaps,
f we had more community singing,
the shy ones would become more ac
customed to singing, and would not
mind if any one turned around and
looked at them.

The personnel of the orchestra includes, in

in brief, consists of a Civic Music as

members who pay $50 or more, sus

regular members who pay $2 a year
and who make up the largest propor
