Jive trophies were won by con- testants at the Tuesday night ses- sion of the 39sh provincial festival held in Southminster church Arnold Goldsbrougb. and Sidney Harrison adjudicating. An addi- tional class held at this session, formerly scheduled for Thursday afternoon, was the open soprano which was won by Madge Thomas, Calgary, who capuired the Edmon- ton Women's Musical club cup. Opening the session. Kent Twells and David Linn. Lethbridge. with 88 marks, won the duologue junior. Their act was a dramatic adapta- tion which was well done with good diction, Dorothv Home and Lor- raine Lewis. Lethbndge. were sec- ond -fcith 84 marks. Duologue senior class had only one team of competitors. Audrey Leonard and Arlene Green, Leth- bndge. who received 85 inarks. The adjudicator said he considered the former more talented than the lat- ter in tr'-e presentation but both. gave a nice piece of work. Wins Cup Junior cup competition was a trophy class, including five former winners and was won by Bowman school, grade six, conducted by D. Bullis and received the Jesse Walk- er cup. Ic was an excelent chorus with the right mood and kept beau- tifully in tune. St. Basil's school, E- Vase- lenak directing, received 80 marks in choral speaking class, grade eight and was the only entry. Although there were too many pauses and accents, the group showed discip- line and kept together well for the Edmonton Women's Musical Club cup when Madge Thomas of that city was awarded 83-87 marks for her two selections. Her competitor was Muriel TorJon of Lethbridge who received SJ-84 marks. There was no worthy com- parison between the two selections with the former choosing "With Verdure Clad" by Hadyn and "Dido's Lament" by Purcell and the latter two very much lighter songs "Cairn as the Night" and "A Heart Teat's Free." Of Miss Thomas, the adjudicator said she has a senses of style but her voice needs to bej brought, under control and rseeds! more variety. Although Miss Ton- kin's selections were rather trivial and not up to festival standard, she has a good voice and her words were well to the front but her quality of tone is not right oa the high notes.
