Symphony Fund
Drive Planned
NEW BERN, July 16. — Cam
paigns for the Symphony fund o*
the North Carolina Symphony Soci
ety, to expand the usefulness of
the'only state-supported symphony
orchestra in America, are well
under way at Wilmington, Hickory
and Charlotte and plans are being
formulated for other district cam
paigns to be started during tne later
summer or fall, reports Dr. J. O
Bailey, of Chapel Hill, fund direc
District chairmen are not only
making preparations for their
drives to try to raise $100,000 for
the symphony 'expansion program
but also appointing county or local
sub-chairmen in the various com
munities of their respective coun
ties, Dr. Bailey says. Already a
substantial sum has been subscrib
ed in the several sections which
have already begun their cam
This new plan was worked out
by symphony society officials,
through their encouragement by the
action of the 1945 General Assem
bly in doubling the former appro
priation for the people’s orchestra.
It has the approval of Gov. R.
Gregg Cherry, who is honorary
chairman for the fund drive. R. L.
McMillan, of Raleigh, is chairman.
Leroy Martin, of Raleigh, is fund
treasurer; and Robert W. Madry
of Chapel Hill is information of
Unique in its firm aim -o inspire
and train children in a deeper ap
preciation of good m isic, the sym
phony orchestra of North Carolina,
Dr. Bailey points c t was '“born
of a dream that our fair and abun
dant land might stand among the
states more proud of its men and
women, its learning and its arts,
when the love of good music is
spread from Hatteras to the Smok
Already the orchestra has given
more than 100 concerts at popular
prices in different parts of the
state, and more than 100 other con
certs for children, free to all who
could pack into the halls. In addi
tion, thousands of nersons have
heard its programs broadcast over
radio. It is particularly planned to
increase the number of its radio
programs, so that it may be heard
and enjoyed by countless thousands
who can not attend the concerts
in person.
Children all over the state have
proved their love of the symphony
< music by their letters which pour
in after every program. Ore wrote:
‘‘Please have another concert as
soon as possible.” Another begged:
“It was my first concert, and it
was pretty. It was wonderful.” Still
another commented: ‘Cripple Creek
was gay, but for real beauty I liked
Beethoven’s Fourth Movement.”
As a main phase of its planned
expanded programs, the orchestra
will play for many more children
all over the state. Children’s musi
cal programs will be broadcast di
rect to schoolrooms. Attractive
booklets will be printed to lead
children to understand and love mu
sic. Victrola records will be made
for school use. Musicians will be
sent out to every nook and comer
to help teach music, to discover
and train youths with musical
tastes and talents. Groups will be
organized in grade and high schools
—trios, quartets and even junior
To carry out these and other ex
pansion plans, the symphony or
chestra needs a salaried conductor,
a business manager, an office-sec
retary, and a nucleus of skilled
musicians on salary for a 20-week
season. That is what the campaign
fund receipts will be used for, in
addition to the state appropriation
for current necessities for its pres
ent skeleton force.
Salaried musicians are said to
be needed to provide skilled lead
ership in every section of the or
chestra, as well as to fill gaps
when fhe busy, hard-working vi lun
teers from all over North Caro
lina are unable to leave their johs
or homes to perform. Fifty former
players are now in the armed
services. Three have been killed in
This orchestra was originated in
1932, chiefly through the able lead
ership of Lamar Stringfield, native
North Carolinian, who became its
first conductor. He won the Pulit
zer prize for his “Suite from the
Southern Mountains.” Later he car
ried on with WPA grants.
rsy u»e tirne -waio was uis
continued, the orchestra had be
come firmly established in the af
fection of North Carolinians. Its
members are now unpaid, except
for a small honororium. Dr. Ben
jamin Swalin, present conductor,
who is officially connected with
the University of N. C. music de
partments, gives freely of his time
and effort. In 1943 the first state
appropriation was obtained tc
help defray orchestra expenses;
this year that amount was doubled
for the next biennium. But even
this larger sum will nor be enough
to finance the organization ade
quately, especially on its expansion
basis. Hence, the symphony fund
“The stake is not just a few con
ceits, more or less,’’ Dr. Walin em
phasizes. “It is Yes or No for an
important aspect of the musical
life of North Carolina. Values in
an expanded musical life cannot be
gauged in dollars. Like the feelings
of religion, of which it is a hand
maiden, the music of great com
posers is spiritual experience.”

Can What You Can
And Without Sugar

Associated Press Food Editor
It is possible to put up fruit
without adding any sugar. The
resulting product will not have as
good color, flavor or shape, but
it will not spoil, and you ca.n add
sweetening when you serve it.
Let me point out, however, that
if you are able to buy fifteen
pounds of sugar for canning for
every person in your family, you
will be able to meet far better
than the minimum recommended
canning budget. That budget is
from 20 to 40 quarts of canned
fruit per person. The 15-pound
sugar allotment will can 60 quarts
of fruit per person if you make
a medium syrup.
Even if you can only obtain five
pounds of sugar per person, each
five pounds will can 20 quarts of
fruit, at the rate of one pound of
sugar for every four quarts of
fruit, wlfich makes a medium
On the other hand, if you are a
great grower of fruit or happen
to live in an area where fruit is
extremely plentiful this year, don’t
waste a bit of it. Put some up
without sugar and use it in pud
dings and pies next winter, where
appearance is perhaps not quite
so important and you can zip the
flavor up with seasonings.
Peaches are plentiful this year
and growers have set a record for
all time. Here is how to can them
without any sugar at all:
Put peaches into a wire basket
and dip them for a minute or two
into boiling water. Cool quickly
in ice water. Slip off the skins
and remove pits. Either slice or
cut in halves.
To prevent darkening of the fruit,
dip into a gallon of water into
i ADD JUICE when canning peaches without sugar. ^
wmcn you nave put c lauiespuuns
of salt and 2 tablespoons of vine
gar. Drain completely.
If the fruit is juicy, extract
the juice from the riper fruit 'on
hand by crushing heating and
straining. Pack the remaining
fruits closely into hot jars, with
out preheating the fruit and add
boiling hot juice to cover it.
If the fruit is not juicy, simmer
it from two to four minutes in a
little water. Use as little as pos
sible, as you do not wish to can
water and furthermore if there is
much water in the finished product
it will be lacking in flavor.
As for the canning of any fruit
in sugar, or not, have jars hot and
fill them quickly. Leave space at
Lilt iup UX XXIV, J«x - — ---
about a 'naif inch. Work out any air
bubbles with a knife blade. Adjust
the jar lid, as directed, depending
upon the type.
Put the jars at once into a boil
in water bath. Be sure that water
level is over the tops of the jars.
Put the lid on the canner and count
time as soon as the water comes
again to a rolling boil. Process
peaches 20 minutes in boiling water
bath—either pints or quarts.
As you take jars from the can
ner, complete the seal at once ii
