State Convention of Music
Teachers Has Busy Time
. : With Its Special
,:V Programs.
THE Tuesday programs of the
Nebraska Music Teachers' as
sociation set a standard for the
convention, which speaks well for
those to follow. The afternoon and
evening sessions brought forth a
gratifying attendance, and the larg
est membership yet enrolled by the
music teachers is reported, with
more expected.
The musical part of the programs
was of unusual excellence and re
flected the . greatest credit upon
thosr? who took part in them. The
fir" 'ied ' two-piano playing of
A': ' vn Wood and Dorothy Morton
Jc' t, who played their concerted
mu ,;e without notes, the artistic
singing of Louise Jansen Wylie and
Mable Woodworth Jensen charmed
a large audience at the morning ses
sion. Lincoln Plays Big Part
The afternqon session brought a
Dvorak Sonata in F major played
with excellent effect by August
Molzed, violinist of Lincoln, and
Carl Beutel, pianist of University
Place. Two Lincoln musicians who
were new to Omaha, were Mrs.
Gilderoy Scott, who is the possessor
of a remarkable contralto voice of
depth and power, and Herbert
Schmidt, whose clean technic and
sane artistry won him recognition
in a group of modern piano num
bers. .
Mabel Allen Smails of Omaha
achieved -success with a group of
soprano solos; and the West Sisters
String quartet and Miss Corinne
Paulson at the piano, played the
lovely Schumann "quintet" in E
flat, major -opus 44. with freedom
and-finished ensemble greatly ap
preciated by the listeners.
Church Choirs Unite.
A wide contrast to the preceding
program was furnished in the eve
ning at the First Presbyterian
church. This was an organ and
choral program and was distinctly
churchly in character. Mr. Law
rence Robbins of Lincoln proved
himself an authoritative musician by
his . masterly playing of the "St.
Anne's Prelude and Fugue," . by
Bach, as the opening organ number.
The combined choirs of All Saints
Episcopal church and the First Pres
byterian church under J. H. Simms
were, heard in two choral numbers,
interpreted with careful regard for
fine, shading, artistic effect and dis
tinct enunciation.
Mr. Fred G., Ellis displayed his
splendid baritone voice to excellent
advantage in the Mendelssohn num
ber, "Lord God of Abraham, sung
with the combined choirs and organ,
and Mr, George S. Johnston, tenor,
interpreted.' his . solos, "Onaway.
Awake Beloved," with musicianly
skill. Mrs. Louise Shadduck Za-
briskie gave additional pleasure with
a group of organ numbers at the
Visitors in Attendance.
Among the out of town visitors
noticed a.t the afternoon and eve
ning sessions were J. A. Parks of
York, Neb. Mrs. Grace Hopper of
Hastings, Mrs Lura Schuler Smith
of Lincoln, vMr .Sidney Silber of
Lincoln, Charles E. Watt of Chi
cago, editor of Music News: Adrian
Newens of the University School of
Music, Lincoln, and delegates from
Broken Bow, Weeping Water and
many other Nebraska points.
Big Program This Morning..
The Wednesday morning program
of the Nebraska Music Teacher as
sociation is the most unique musical
program which has probably ever
been given in Omaha.
. The first number is a concerto for
three pianos and orchestra, written
by J. S. Bach, and which, will be
played by three of Omaha's prom-
inent pianists, Cecil Berryman, Jean
P. Duffield and Martin W. Bush, and
a special stringed orchestra under
the direction of Henry G. Cox. Then
will come the "Dextet," also by
Bach, a concerto written for three
violins, three violas, three violon
cellos and stringed bass, under the
direction of Ernest Nordin. Those
taking part are among the leading
string players of Omaha.
A sonata for flute and orchestra
will be played by Rex Elton Fair
of Lincoln, and the Bruch violin
concerto Vill be played with or
chestra by Carl Steckelberg of Lin
coln. . A Beethoven sextet, a num
ber written for four stringed and
three ' woodwind instruments will
also be presented. Mrs. Louis
Ormsby Thompson of Central City
and Mrs. Maud Gutzmer of Omaha
will sing.
In the Afternoon.
The afternoon session will bring
musical numbers by Joseph B. Lit
kowski of Omaha, tenor, and Mar-,
garet Perry of Lincoln, conferences1
with superintendents . and supervi
sors of public school music, and a
demonstration by Miss ; Hazel Ger
trude Kinscella of Lincoln, of teach
ing the piano in the public schools.
An automobile ride for the visitors
and banquet at the Fontenelle com
pletes the program.

Pershing's Heart Turned to Nebraska Though
Chasing Moros Through Philippine Swamps
Lincoln, Neb., April 6. How John
J. Pershing told people all over the
world that his home was in Ne
braska and how he aways held a
warm place 'in his heart for every
Nebraskan he met is Interestingly
described by N. C. Abbott, superin
tendent of the School for the Blind
at Nebraska City, an alumnus of
the University of Nebraska.
"Along in the middle of the year
1902," Mr. Abbott says, Pershing,
then a captain. . was pushing the
.Moros hard up m the lake country
ot Mindanao, so successtui uaa ne
been in his endeavor to crush these
Mohometab outlaws that the army
authorities kept officers "of higher
rank out' of his immediate neighbor
hood, so as to give him free rein
in the operations that would ac
complish the federal purpose. At
that time I was stationed at Co
tacato, as schoolteacher and post
master, having charge of the only
money order office .easily, accessible
in the immediate war zone, about
80 to 100 miles away from where
our forces were operating.
"One night the commanding of
ficer of the post sent his orderly to
me with the request that I would
go to the office and draw some
money orders for an officer who had
come over from Malabang by
launch especially for the purpose of.
getting exchange on the states. In
the dim light of the smoky kero
sene lamp. I began filling out the
money order blank, and noticed that
it was to be drawn on Lincoln, Nebraska.
"When I reachrt the name of the
remitter, I .looked up in surprise,
walked over to the window and
said, extending my hand, 'Lieuten
ant Pershing' and he squinted at me
and answered, 'A Fremont Abbott.'
Pershing did not hurry back to the
front as soon as I had drawn the
money order, as he intended. , In
stead he' gave orders to the captain
of the 'Detroit' to wait six hours.,
And then he linked his arm in mine
and we went up to the little shack
that we called home fcr a love feast.
"As the rats ran across the beams
above our heads, as the lizards
darted hither and thither about the
room, time and distance fell away
from us. We were not in the heart
of Moroland but back in old Ne
braska, 10,000 miles away. He was
no longer the captain of the fight
ing troops up in the Lanao country
endeavoring, with rare success, that
eventually made him a general, to
conquer the blood-thirsty Mahome
tan Moros which the Spaniards, in
three centuries, had been unable to
subdue. He was once more the
commandant of the . university
cadet and a student in the law col
lege; living university life, breath
ing university air, reviewing uni
versity drills and conquests of a de
cade before.
"He was interested iii every one
he had known in school and asked
innumerable question:? about the
people .in Lincoln, Fremont and
other parts of the state with which
I was acquainted."
Reach Agreement Not to Fix
Strength of Force Until
Question of Military Train
- ing Is Disposed Of.
Washington, April 6. An agree'
ment not to- fix the peacetime
streneth of the army until the cues
tion of universal training has been
disDOSftd of was reached today by
the senate when consideration of
the army reorganization bill was
Chairman Wadsworth of the mill
tary committee said he was "not
willine to vote at this time ' on
the training and no time was fixed
for a vote. The provision of the
measure for universal training is
expected to be reached before the
end of the week.
The army reorganization bill was
attacked as a measure which "would
build up a military system equal
to any that ever existed in any
country at any time," by Senator
McKellar, democrat of Tennessee,
during consideration of the legis
lation in the senate. Senator Mc
Kellar's criticism was directed prin-
cinallv at provisions favorable for a
large general staff, the creation of
under-secretary . of vrar, and for
the organization of a war council
to consider policies affecting mill
tary and munition problems. Sena
tor McKellar indicated his opposi
tion to universal military training
but reserved his attack upon it until
the general fight on the plan is
brought to the senate floor.
As a forerunner of the later floor
fight against the universal training
program, the senate by unanimous
consent, agreed to deter action tix
ing the peacetime strength of the
army until after disposing of the
universal military training pro'
visions. No time was fixed, but
progress today indicated the plan
would come before the senate late
in the week.
3,000 Pennsylvania
Miners Idle Despite
Agreement on Scale
Pittsburgh, Pa., April 6. Al
though promises to meet the wage
demands of striking day men in the
east Ohio bituminous district were
made today by a number of im
portant operating coal companies,
the principal mines were still closed,
with more than 3,000 men idle. ,' .
Strikers at the mines of the
Wheeling and Lake Erie Coal com
pany, one of the chief concerns af
fected, gave out a statement in
which they said:
"We find that the majority report
of the commission granted to us
only a 20 per cent increase in wages
on the wages received in the month
of October, 1919, or in other and
plainer words, a 6 per cent increase
on present wages. This is not a
proportionate advance with the ton
nage men, and we agree that the

Why Does Silver Tarnish?
Copyright, 1920, by The Wheeler
The tarnishing or dulling of the
bright surface of silver in due to
the action of air which contains
sulphur, even in minute quantities.
This action, which is somewhat
analogous to the rusting of iron
though the latter is due to the ef
fect of water or moisture forms
a coating of silver sulphate over
the bright surface of the metal in
some cases turning it an unsightly
brown. The film of silver sulphate
may be removed by the applica
tion of friction but, unless care is
-exercised, this is likely to scratch
and mar the original surface of
the metal. For this reason, all re
liable preparations sold as "silver
polishes" are entirely free from
gritty particles large enough to
make scratches visible to the
naked eye though the entire pro
cess of polishing is, in Itself, one
of scratching away the film or re
moving it by some kind of fric
tion. The fact that sulphur is respon
sible for the tarnishing of silver
explains why pieces of tableware
in a house heated by a hot air fur
nace will tarnish more rapidly
than those in a house where steam
or hot water heat has been in
stalled. The sulphur fumes come
up from the furnace through reg
isters and quickly film the silver,
necessitating frequent cleaning,
while this condition , naturally
does not exist in houses where
radiators are in place.
