Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 25, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 8 The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Mon., Feb., 25. 1974 'Thinking' Day Marching in the Girl Scout Thinking' Day parade Saturday afternoon at Marion high school are, from left, Chris Fox, 1260 E avenue, and Kristin Turner, 1552 First avenue, both of Marion. Thinking' day is an annual event when Girl Scouts think about Scouts in other countries. The observance included a parade of 92 flags, each representing countries which have Girl Scouts.

National Council’s regional auditions. Pile auditions were held Satin-- Bridge Jazette Photo bv Duane Crock Rose Polished, Though Unrehearsed By Les Zaeheis The great American prima performer on the ’cello appeared as guest soloist with the Cedar Rapids Symphony Saturday evening in the first of a pair of concerts. Leonard Rose, making a belated arrival in the city after being socked in by foul weather at the St. Louis airport, demonstrated h i s peerless musicianship by reeling off a polished reading of the Tchaikovsky “Variations on a Rococo Theme”. By the same token the scholarly presentation without benefit of a rehearsal was a profound tribute to the quality of musical leadership by Richard Williams. Here was a situation frought with danger. It could easily have resolved into a frustrating game of musical “Button, Button, who's got the Button”. The Rococo theme is one of the great showpieces for the ’cello, exploiting adroitly the instrument’s extremely wide range. The charming little 18th Century snatch of melody is one that is particularly open to development and Tchaikovsky (Seized the opportunity, writing not only the delightful variations and leaving room for the lengthy ca- I denzas, but fitting in an orchestral score that is a dainty I and integral part of the total musical picture. Williams’ directing was obviously calculated to reassure j an understandably uneasy orchestra, as he sensed and indicated positively the tenor of the ritards and the quite wide scope of the dynamics. The Tchaikowsky was followed by the “Suite No. 3 in C major for Lnaccompanted ’Cello” by J. S. Bach Here Rose found the opportunity to demonstrate his vast reser- Personalized Service! voir of technical prowess. The C major, one of six suites for unaccompanied ’cello is extremely difficult, posing some almost incredible virtuosity demands on the performer. Clearly, Bach composed the suites to provide music for the ’cello that would bring that instrument up in solo stature ranking with the then already well established violin. Rose produces a tone that has never been surpassed in this writer's hearing. The sonorous quality seemed never to he lost, even on the torturously difficult passages. For Rcise, it is imperative that he be at the top musically, inasmuch as he is totally lacking in that quality usually referred to as a warm stage presence. Rapport with his audience was non-existent. However, it is admittedly of much greater importance for a soloist to establish and maintain rapport with the conductor and the orchestra, and this Rose clearly accomplished. Incidentally, just to quiet down dinner table trivia, the Rococo theme was played by Leslie Parnas and the Symphony on the December ’64 concert. Contemporary music found a place on this program with the much discussed Mike Coignes series of protean musical pictures called “As quiet HS— . Here again, the absolute discipline of Conductor Williams was imperative, and It was factually in evidence. The peril of a work as abstruse as the meandering that Colgrass has indicated or suggested rather than written is ever present. There is great danger of the continuity falling apart. The work went well. It had obviously been well rehearsed.

The concert opening overture. the Berlioz “Corsair” was a welcome choice, but I do wish the strings had played with more of a feeling of excitement that this flagwaver is supposed to generate. The steady and unshakable pulse of Williams and his percussion on the Ravel “Bolero” was a favorite with the audience. And. in a surprise move, Williams and the orchestra encored with the lilting Johann Strauss, jr., “Wine, Women, and Song”, admittedly not a bad suggestion on such a cold winter night. The concert repeats Monday night at 8 in Coe Sinclair auditorium. BABY SHOWER GIVEN FOR MRS.

Henry was walking her beat in the summer of 1972 when a screaming crowd of people rushed to her. A man had gone berserk, brandishing a machete in one hand and a knife in the other, and was chasing them. He already had injured his father. Acts of Bravery Patrolwoman Henry looked at him and handed her pistol to the village captain. She cautiously approached t h e man, parried a blow, grappled him to the ground and disarmed him. For that and other acts of bravery since she joined the 33-man police force of this town of about 40,000 residents 40 miles south of Manila, the pretty Miss Henry was voted the most outstanding Filipino officer of 1974. Miss Henry, 27, won over 107 candidates chosen from the Philippines’ 38,000-strong police forces. She was cited for making five arrests of criminals singlehandedly — a record in police annals here. Miss Henry, whose father is an American from San Francisco, said that of her many arrests she recalls only her encounter with the berserk man and nabbing a driver of a bus that ran over and killed a woman and her child. “Triple Kick" She had stood in the middle of the street after hearing the hit-and-run case over the radio and waited for the bus. As the bus raced toward |?:'M at Welty-Way her, apparently with no intention of stopping, the lady cop side-stepped, jumped onto the running board, then clobbered the driver. Her colleagues said she could do the “triple kick” which the late Chinese martial arts king Bruce Lee popularized in his King Fu films. An education graduate who took up a masters course in martial arts in Tokyo from 1968 to 1971, Miss Henry said she became interested in police work in 1972 and joined the Ijos Banos police force. “It’s in the blood,” she explained, adding she has relatives on the police force in San Francisco. A believer in women’s liberation. she said: “We probably cannot equal the strength of men. But definitely we can equal men when it comes to intelligence and some other things.” i A/*    I    i J I Immaculate Conception Cath- Vf IHS CIT Af 0# olio church provided the setting Saturday for the marriage of Miss Anita Diane Sells, UIS Daniels street NE. and Dennis Lee Wolrab, 2206 Kenrich drive SW.
