18 THE LETHBRISGE HERALD TuBlday, July 25, 1971 High Notes by JANE PATERSON Anne Campbell Singers JULY U Crcoso It's the only word in the Welsh language roost of us learned during the lime spent travel- ling throughout Wales. It means welcome, and we found that the Welsh meant it when they said it. After our week at the Eisteddfod, we moved on to Car- diff, the capital of Wales. Members of the notary Club and the League of Friends from the new University Hospital acled jointly as our hosts. We gave a concert the first night we arrived, in the lec- ture theatre of the hospital, which reminded us of our own Yates Centre. The girls spent the next day with their individual host families, and used the opportunity to go sight-seeing; taking in such places as the old cathedral and the capitol buildings. We left Cardiff the next morning to travel to the pic- turesque Bhondila Valley. w For some of the girls, arriving in Rhondda meant a re- union with the Pendyrus Male Choir, who were Lethbridge visitors shortly after our 1066 tour. We were treated to a reception our first night there, and during the evening, both choirs performed a few numbers. The next evening, we performed on our own, and much to cur delight, were well received by the Hliondda popvdation. JULY 17 The ancient .Roman city of Bath was next stop on our tour, with the choir meeting at the Bath Abbey to go on a conducted tour. Famous landmarks were pointed out to us, and it seemed a legend accompanied every one of them; a yarn-spinning trait which showed up in almost every village we visited. The girls visited the actual sit; of. the Romao Baths, thought to have been erected in the 5th century. Although greatly restored, there is still evidence of their age. We later attended a practice of the Silver Hing Choir of Bath, the Eisteddfod-winning choir acting as our sponsor. The concert given next evening was held in the Bath As- sembly Rooms, and was shared by the two choirs. We left Bath for Bracfcnell, a one-night stop and our final night in the British Isles, before leaving for Harwich and boarding e ferry for Bremerhaven, Germany. We bade a sad farewell to Peter, our British bus driver, who had been with us since the start of the tour. 8 f JULY 20 Following an early morning docking at Brem- erhaven, a four-hour bus ride brought us to our destination; Ploen. Our accommodation there was unlike any other we had ex- perienced on our trip. We stayed in the dormitories of a castle-converted-to-hostel, overlooking Lake Ploen. The change caused an improvement in the disposition of the choir in general, as most if us found that residing in others' homes put a strain on us. Our visit to Ploen included a concert which we presented In the castle. Several hundred people attended, and seemed to enjoy our numbers despite the language barrier. At the conclusion of the evening, a delegation of towns- people presented each girl, and Mrs. Campbell, with a bouquet of flowers. Needless to say, we were very touched by this gesture. With less than a week left of the tour, we looked forward to seeing more of Germany and also Holland. The members of the tour have asked me to send home thanks to those people who sent us congratulatory telegrams and good wishes: The Parents' Association of the Anne Campbell Singers, Leister's, the H. D. Hall family of Ottawa (former residents of Lethbridge who had two girls in the choir) all our families ani friends. With supporters behind us, we're even more determined to do our best and indeed, "do you proud."

THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "At times like this, I wish I'd left it at worshiping you from afar.
