(403) 328-7411 FILING CABINETS A review St. John concert short of ideal By PAT ORCHARD The Lethbridge Symphony Chorus, conducted by Lucien Needham, and accompanied by Louise Chapman (harpsi- chord) and the string section of ths Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra performed a rath- er controversial rendering of Handel's St. John Passion at the Yates Memorial Centre Monday evening. I say controversial, as this text was no masterpiece, eith- er verbally or structurally, having been edited by Mich- ael Diacks. Although Mr. Di- acke presumably aimed to ar- range the music as Handel would have wanted it, he has indulged in some rather cur- ious rhythmic changes, as (veil as including chorales and choruses from other Passions and oratorios. However, this was no fault of the perform- ers, so let us discuss tha qual- ity of last evening's perform- ance. Walter Goerzen was a most authoritative Evange- ist. His interpreations were intelligent, ranging from pas- sages of the utmost subtlety, to others sung with tremen- dous virility. He had an ample tenor voice of fins quality which could, with a little mere imaginative coaching, become a compel- ling dramatic instrument. Arnold Dvorkin, as Pi- late, had an irritating habit of attacking notes from be- low in an uncomfortable way, 01 else attacking them in lit- tle explosive bursts. His in- terpretations needed expres- sion more than just mere vol- ume. However one could blame the accompaniment as part of his problem. Mr. Arthur Hunt was a noble Jesus, but I suspect he found the bass arias uncomfortable in the lower register, as at times his voice was surpris- ingly obscured by the orches- tra. The heavy beat in his tone made him sound rather taxed by his runs, but were his voice in happier and freer condition, his interpretations too, could be worthy of seri- ous consideration. Mrs. Colleen Kaufman (so- prano) had a bright pleasant voice. She has technique enough but one had the im- pression that what she gives is all she has to give. She never seemed to start or end a phrase with plenty of breath in hand. However, this could have been due to nervousness, as the artistry of her duets was always of the highest level. Mary Thompson (contralto) had the energy and volume needed for the part, but her vibrato was irritating on long- held notes. The crowd choruses had a tendency to come in on their leads rather than hit them. The sopranos seemed unable to cope successfully with the high notes, which emerged as little squeaks. One fslt the singers could have empha- sized the more venomous words such as with a more derisive tone. Nevertheless, their approach was live and positive, and as such deserved the highest commendation. The choir's brief handling of the chorales were the high- light of the evening. Handel would have been somewhat surprised by them, as there were no chorales written for the St. John Passion. The harpsichord accompani- ment was adequate, while the cello and bass sections of the string orchestra could scarcely be endured. Music of this period was usually written for voice and con- tinuo. The accompanists are to be congratulated, as rarely did they cbscurs an aria. Although the performance was admirable, it was hardly what Handelians would ideally want of the St. John Passion. However, it did pro- Aide the opportunity to re- mind us of an unjustly neglected work. Perhaps next time the conductor could chooss something more tech- nically mature.

By BERNICE HERLE Herald Staff Writer Little white arm bands with the Red Cross symbol were worn by about 90 city students today to com- memorate World Red Cross Day. The Grade 2 classes of Fleetwood Bawden School decided to make paper arm- bands and wear them to show thsy believe in Red Cross. Pearl McKague, co-ordina- tor of the Grade 2 classes at Fleetwocd Bawden, said she had meant to order arm- bands for the children to wear bur forgot about it so the students decided to make their own. Last year for World Red Cross Day the Grade 2 classes visited the Auxiliary Hospital, airs. McKague said the Red Cross program set up in. the school is not rigid or structured. She said it deals with ths aspects of interna- tional understanding, health and community services. The Red Cross concept is just woven in with the other programs offered at the school. "For Mrs. Mc- Kague said, "in social studies the class studied pio- neers and so we tied it in with the Red Cross program of community services. "The pioneers are the peo- ple at the Green Acres Lodge who the children go to see. They each have a special person to she said. As far as the international aspect of the program is con- cerned, Mrs. McKague said the Red Cross branch in Cal- gary supplies health kits which the children fill with brushes, combs and other supplies. The kits are then distributed all over the world. Mrs. McKague, Pat Martin and Elsie Trovan, ttbe other Grade 2 teachers at Fleet- wood Bawden, use Red Cross material extensively in connection with their health classes. Red Cross supplies many posters of correct health procedures that the children understand easily. Mrs. McKague said it costs the children a dime to join. Red Cross and they must not ask their parents for the monay but rather they must earn themselves or take it out of their allowance. "Even if they can't bring a dime no one is she said. The instructor pointed out that the children are really interested in the program. She said it seems to give them a purpose to think about somebody else The children themselves, had definite views on Red Cross and World Red Cross Day. Brian Heinrich said World Red Cross Day is a day every- one celebrates Red Cross. "It's to remember people that have been helped by Red he said. Kent Hollingsworth said World Red Cross Day helps people remember how Red Cross got started. "It started in the war about 110 years ago and it was started by a man named Henry Dunant." Kent said "big people in Lethbridge" haip the Red Cross a lot. "My dad goes and donates blood. They get about a pint of blood out of people's he said. Shelly Mueller said "little people" can help the Rad Cress too. They can collect stamps and coupons. Sheldon Krahn said the money from the stamps and coupo'ns can be used to buy toys for sick children in hos- pitals. Mrs. McKague said the students have compiled _ a friendship album in which they put then- art work, a col- lection of their poetry and an account of their Rad Cross activities during the year.

Water users consider attempting well purchase GRAKUM (HNS) Famil- ies cut off from free water by 80-year-old Jane Whipple may attempt to buy the Whip- pie well or dig another well with government financial help. About 75 people met in a closed session here Monday night and failed to arrive at any solution to the problem forced on them Friday by Mrs. Wbipple. The meeting was told by John Zoeleman, councillor in Willow Creek municipal dis- trict 26, that Mrs. Whipple warned last February she would close the well located on her land and that the water was not for sale. But he suggested a commit- tee be formed to ask Mrs. Whipple to change her mind and sell the land. It was also suggested that a site north of "the Willow Creek be appropriate for a well and that the group should investigate the chances of getting financial help from the provincial gov- ernment. Members of the North Mac- leod Water Haulers Co-opera- tive say in 1961 they offered Mrs. Whipple per member per year for water. She re- they say. Mrs. Whipple's ranch is lo- cated about five miles north of Fort Macleod. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5th St. S.
