Maple Grove Candy
Souvenir Package A deliciously unique package which you’ll want to keep as a Bicentennial souvenir—and also pridefully send to distant friends who cannot come to Washington. The box is quaintly Colonial in treatment with views of Mount Vernon, Wakefield, Washington’s Coach and the Washington Monument. The contents of plain and chocolate coated Maple sweets are particularly appropriate for the occasion, since Maple Grove Candies are truly the “sweets of our forefathers.” Candy.

IT is hard to believe that ope branch of the National Sym phony Orchestra’s concerts is already over for this season. The Thursday afternoon chil dren's series was completed yester day at Central High School. Hans Kindler's ready smile and well chosen words seemed to create, if such were nmutibl* a mm Dorothy Gordon. charming a t mosphere than usual. At the request of eager boys who missed the d e m onstration of the percus sion instruments at the last Sat urday concert, it was briefly re peated. After the drummer had gone back to his regular glace with the lg kettledrum on his head the concert began, with the weingarcner transcription of Weber’s "Invitation to a Waltz.” The three themes were played alone several times and then together to show Weber’s skillful weaving. Some of the running work in the violins was blurred by the weight of the other instruments, but as a whole the waltz was daintily and, at the climaxes, brilliantly drawn, ending with eloquent conversation between the cello6 and violins. The rest of the program was folk music of different nations. Dorothy Gordon, well known for "folk" Inter pretations. sang songs of Bavaria and of Alsatia. And in the Spanish "Me Gustan Todos" the blond pig tails which she wore were ripped off in favor of black hair, and to the immense delight of the audience Miss Gordon pointed to Kindler and sang • That blonde one, I love him the best.” Her second group represented dif ferent sections of this country. She had a happy way of Including the audience In her songs, getting the boys to whistle loudly (the orchestra included themselves in this category) and the girls to sing in the North Carolina ditty "Grandma Grunts." Miss Gordon did her best singing in the Virginian "Shortnln’ Bread.” Her voice, though not large, was sweet and clear in the higher reg ister. To those who are watching the progress of the National Symphony r.s an orchestra it was a revelation yesterday to hear the two seven teenth century Dutch tunes of Klndler’s arrangement, and to note the Immense strides that have been made since their performance at the orchestra’s very first concert. All Indecision and raggedness had gone. In their place was the freedom of easy mastery and an interpretation that stirred the audience with its breadth and power. And, boys and girls, do not forget to write your letters to Mrs. Greene's office, telling not Just what you like or dislike about the concerts, but “why.” The three medals for the best letters will be awarded at 11 o’clock Saturday morning, March 5.
