Veteran workers In the great Held of reclamation of arid lands who have
attended every session of the National Irrigation Congress since the creation
Of the organization My that In all the history of the congress I lie c reation
no more beautiful and no more impressive opening session than that of
yesterday morrlng In Albuqueniuc's new convention hall which introduced
the sixteenth annual meeting of the congress. To those of us for whom it
was the Ilrst Irrigation congress session, the opening ceremonies were
decidedly impressive, lending a new and broader meaning to this organization
With which, while we have seen and felt the benefit of Its work, direct and
indirect, wo have not heretofore been familiar. To those of us for whom it
was the first session of the congress, it was brought homo that this is
an organization of grave and able men. nation wide in its Inlluence, gathering
together for the working out of the national problem of reclamation of the
waste places, tne nest tnougni me nation nas 10 give.
But all things are likely to be Judged by contrast and the comparisons
made by veterana of the congress between the opening session of yesterday
and the opening sessions of the other congresses in other cities could not but
be gratifying to the hard working officers and members of the board of con
trol, and to the people óf 'Albuquerque and New Mexico who have worked
hard and long In preparing for this meeting.
It was tun minutes to eleven o'clock when President Goudy called tht
congress to order, his big voice filling the convention hall and carrying tt
every corner of the galleries where every seat was filled and where several
hundred people were standing. Kvery one of the 3801) seats in the conven
tion hall was occupied and with those who were standing considerably more
than four thousand people were In sound of the president's voice.
The Mexican National band played "The Star Spangled Banner," and
every' person in the house was standing. The band followed with the Mexican
national anthem and the great audience broke Into heartv appluuse which
was renewed when Hev.Oeo. C.Cartwright. envoy to the Mexican government,
who extended the Invitation to send the band here, led Leader Pedro A.
Nieva tu the platform and in a brief speech, first in Spanish and then in
English, decorated the talented director with the official badge of the irri
gation congress, set on a background made of the national colors of the
United Btates and Mexico. It wus a pretty ceremony and it brought delegates
and uudlence together in enthusiastic interest In the proceedings to follow.
The invocation followed, pronounced by llev. Father A. M. Mandalurl, S.
J of the Immaculate Conception church.
A Splendid Hendltlon of the Irrigation Ode.
Then followed the Irrigation Ode. opening event of every congress;
sung yesterday by a chorus of one hundred voices; led by soloists of rare
ability and directed with marvelous skill. Men who know paid compliment
to yesterday's rendition of the dignified composition when they said that the
Irrigation Ode had never been better sung than by the Albuquerque chorus,
although these same men had heard It sung by the great Tabernacle choir
of Salt Lake City. One more opportunity will le given to hear this chorus
In the Orutorlo to be presented in convention hall tonight and It Is safe to
say that there will be no vacant seats. Albuquerque Is quite justly proud of
this chorus and Is especially proud of the talented young director. Miss
Caroline A. Strong, who mad.' it. Miss Strong's task was not an easy one.
She took eighty voices, untrained for the most part In chorus singing,
and brought them to perfection in a composition of unusual difficulty in a
matter of six weeks. When the chorus was reinforced by a number of voices
from Lass Vegas and elsewhere and by the soloists and orchestra. Miss Strong
look the completed organization and In less than a week of rehearsing pro
duced yesterday's result, a result the excellence of which the enthusiastic
commendation of the congress and the auaience oore uuyn """--solo
parts were splendidly done. And, here again Albuquen,ue is quite justly
proud, for Miss Claude Albright, in spite of her years of work in concert and
opera, in America and abroad, is an Albuquerque girt, while Mrs. C. A. Frank,
whose beautiful voice won equal favor, is also of Albuquerque. The tenon,
Mr Oupuy and Mr. Jepaon and the basso. Mr. Wallace, are from Los Aug. ICS,
while the orchestra Is from Emporia. Kansas. Almost In the middle of the
ode the audience Interrupted for nearly live minutes or applause before
allowing the chorus to proceed and when the splendid finale of national airs
had been sung, the audience, on Its feet, gave another demonstration of its
The Addre-i-c of Welcome.
........ t.a... i.i ,,!,- iv l.iiuiiiess man Is very plain. The audience
would gladly have listened to a second rendition of the ode. but the president,
with an eye to the carrying out of the program, called for announcements,
and Secretary Fowler plunged Into the midst of things, with statements of
