PHONE 859 MUSIC ALBUM By Irven Fell Grieg is quoted as ng, "Had I not inherited my mother's ir- repressible energy as well as her musical capacity, I should never in any respect have succeeded In passing from dreams to deeds." John Powell's mother expressed herself when lying ill in bed. The family doctor, like Powell's fa- ther did not approve of allowing the younger Powell to study mus- ic and make it a career and the doctor said, "You are not going to make a musician of the boy, you? "No doctor," she re- od has done that already." We are told that Arthur Schopenhauer, the great philoso- pher once conducted a study of genius and came forth with the idea that such people inherited it from their mothers. Dealing with musicians and looking into their histories, it is very true, whether or not the masters inherited their genius from their mothers, the mother's influence, guidance, pa- tience, sacrifice and faith in them certainly played a great part. The mother has always been looked upon as the guiding light, the father being pre-occupied in making a living for the family. However, there was a time when father ruled the roost and had his word taken for law. I think there is a good deal of it yet in good sound homes, but it is more subtle and reasoned out more. One wonders at times that, now that so many mothers are also out working to 'augment father's earnings to make ends meet, if mother has the time or patience to glve sincere guidance to her brood. "Composers and their mothers" is a good study. It does reveal that many of the characteristics of these giants of music are dir- ectly traceable to their mothers. In many cases, if the father had had his way some of them would never have studied music. There are exceptions of course. but they are few, that is, where the father was the sympathetic one. In many cases. we find the mother was a musician herself and father a business man who wanted the son to be a mercantile or industrial giant and where the mother had to make provision for the son to study music unknown to the fa- ther, Handel and Schuman were both destined for law. Delius and Franz were to enter the mercantile business. Hector Berlioz. French composer, was the son of a medical doctor who HIS BIGGEST SALE LAST TUESDAY The cash register said "No Sale", but actually the pharmacist chalked up the biggest sale of the day . . . he had helped sell a man back his health, his happiness . . . in fact, his life. It had been a busy morning in the prescription room, but the phar- macist was aware of a man who stood near the telephone booth for quite a time, apparently looking up numbers in the directory. As soon as there were no other customers within hearing, he approached the counter saying: "I think I may have a venereal disease 3 1 + will you give me something I can take to clear it up?" The pharmacist took the customer aside where they could talk quietly and inconspicuously. In a friendly manner he talked to him about these diseases. He explained their dangers quite frankly. He told him the truth--there are no drugs which will cure venereal diseases that are safe for self-medication. But he also explained that medical science has developed modern drugs which, time required to treat th the hands of a doctor, materially reduce the e diseases. The pharmacist sold that customer... . sold him on going toa physician for effective treatment that would rehabilitate his health, his family life, and his usefulness to socicty. With those few minutes of advice the pharmacist sold that man-back hs life. vas the biggest sale he made last Tuesday. Giving dependable nal advice is but one phase of your pharmacists contribution = to public health and welfare of your community. -- Reprinted from a copyrighted advertiss al published by Parke, Davis & Company.

C. Jackson Although the weather was un- favorable, there was a splendid attendance at the annual Christ mas fair held by St. Jude's Wom- en's Guild in the parish hall Sat- urday afternoon. Lady Baillie of- ficiated at the opening. A big feature was the booth exclusively for children, where young folks could buy a big variety of Christ- mas gifts at very low prices. This booth, which was presided over by Mrs. Evelyn Scott, was well patronized, as were all the oth- ers, including handicrafts, in charge of Mrs. Tom Chisholm; home baking, in charge of Mrs. Jack Milne; delicatessen, in charge of Mrs. W. B. Honeywell; and the parcel post sale, in charge of Mrs. Ross Ryrie, In charge of the tea room were Mrs. Eric Burke and Mrs. Whitney Harris. Those pouring were Mrs. J. A. M. Bell, Mrs. R. W. Allen, Mrs. R. H. Howson and Mrs. Roy Smith. A fish-pond for the children also proved a popular attraction, as did movies for the young people, shown by Mr. and Mrs. Fred Taylor. Mrs, E. G. Batten was in charge of children's activities. General convener of the fair was Mrs. A. Weatherstone, president of the Women's Guild. A corporate Communion for the women of the parish is being held this morning, St. Andrew's Day, at 10 o'clock, with coffee served in the parish hall afterwards. The men's Advent corporate Communion is being held this coming Sunday at 8 am. to be followed by breakfast in the par- ish hall, served by the Senior W. A. The address of the Bishop will be heard by radio. A memorial service for the late Archbishop G. F. Kingston, Pri- mate of All Canada, was held on insisted that his son also be a doctor and sent him to medical scuool. It was no use, Berlioz was a dud at school simply because le was not interested. lt caused a definite break hetween father and son, but as Mrs. Powell said eariier in this article, "God had made him a musician." I'schaikovsky was another who started out to pe a lawyer: In fact Le was a lawyer and once held a position with the Ministry of Justice. It wasn't really motherly influence which turned him to music, for we read that he took the lawyer's job after his moth- ers death and that it was a rel- ative who got him to. take music seriously. The emotion so evident in his music was undoubtedly in- berited from his mother, how- ever. So many times one reads,. "he was fust taught by his mother and then sent to such and such a teacher." Cherubini and Liszt were two exceptions that I can think of, for their first teachers were their fathers, both of whom were very much interested in musi Brahms was another who was in- fluenced in music by his father. We of today have reason to be thankful for some act of sacrifice on the part of mothers of years ago. It will always be the same because the same thing is going on tod Mothers never know what their influence towards the ight things in their offspring Il mean to generations yet un- born, and by the same token they will never know what harmful in- I fluence they may generate by un- thinking advice and indifferent attitude. Psychologists will tell you that. This is getting quite long for one issue, and I propose next week to give some instances of how mothers moulded and influenced some of the great musicians of the past.
