Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta POT-LUCK By D'ARCY RICKARD The Lclhhridge and District Kiwnnls Music Festival is al- most over ]jul my toilet keeps sing ing, whistling, humming and gurgling. I tfucss 1 should have, enter- ed it together would hnvc won something. I'm sure I he adjudicator would have said "a nice, mu- sical toilet hut the float ball isn't right nn the centre o[ the Doles." Goodness knows, I practise enough! had a couple of children In the musical test tliis year. I must say Ilildegard enjoyed all Ihti kids singing at the Para- mount and at Southminster United Church Hall and me running out to sec if the ad- judicator had flunked our parking meter. Clifford's class reciled some- thing for Mrs. Martin and the audience about n little lambkin and won first prize. lie missed out with his paper boat song though. Roy! Tlie little Chinese fel- low that won sure pleased his mother! She floated out of that hall like n woman in love, which I'm suro she is, with that wonderful hoy! "My! Won't daddy be she told the lurky lit tie fellow, "Don't you wish dad- dy was she said. Raymond Lew of Fleetwood- Dawdcn's Grade L class, you sang like n bird. You charmed us out of our seals. Keep up the good work! It was the thrill that comes once iti a lifetime. Daddy is probably so happy the practising is over he'll give l.he little chap a dollar, win or lose. Tabor is really lucky this year they're not having the iiunuaL musical torture lest. In- stead, they're concentrating on hog calling this yenr. Keep llie (ones round and mellow. Let's all hope that some ynar some brave teacher will make her class stand on its collec- tive heads and .ccite "Tlie Boy Stood on the Burning Deck i After all, anyone cati recite i with his feet planted squarely on the stage. The adjudicators arc still pretending they love it my, my, these children are lovely and their music teachers arc angels from heaven. Well, all joking aside, the teachers arc wonderful and the children do look beautiful, aV shined up and white and clea like little bartenders. i I must admit I really do en-! joy music festivals provid- j ing they don't lock me up with the accordion players. Isn't it a shame so many kids don't ever really have a chance to learn how to play a f musical inslrument? Letlibridge can he really proud of its fine music teach- ers. And the people who run the festivals are really kind and considerate. Maybe we should all tip our hats to these wonderful people. And a special tip of the hat to Frank Hosek, teacher, leader, bandsman and all around good guy for so many year? to the kids in the Lelhbridge Commu- nity (Kiwanis) Band. Robert Hall! Don't give up! We need you! Now here, hang on, don't run away. T want to play you some- thing. Oue and two and flush.
