Lisa Gardiner and
Group Please Audi
ence With Program.
ISA GARDINER and her terpsi
chorean group combined their
talents with musical composi
tions of outstanding members
of the Washington Composers’ Club
in a recital, remarkably original in
choregraphfc pattern and character
ized by assurance and ease of interpre
tation. in the auditorium of Roosevelt
High School last evening.
In a program that was chiefly
humorous and caricatural In treatment
of the subject matter, the entire troupe
displayed keen Insight for the details
of facial expression and pantomime,
avoiding, on the whole, a natural pit
fall of pantomime—that of "overdoing."
This was true even of the very young
"ballerinas,’’ who handled their rou
tines with the confidence and poise
unusual for their ages. Unity and co
operation of the individuals was ap
parent throughout, with few qiistakes
in entrance cues and infrequent lapres
in continuation of the choregraphy.
“Old King Cole.” simply an adapta
tion of the Mother Goose rhyme in
more elaborate clothing, was the most
popular of the evening’s offerings and
the most convincing in enactment.
The rotund old gentleman was made
his drollest through the clever and
novel facial contortions of Alice Louise
Hunter. Reliable support by Patricia
Benedict and Patricia Perry as the
pages, and Rudolph Vallee and Fred
eric Cole as the bodyguards balanced
the performance. The off-stage "fid
dlers three’’ were Henri Sokolov, Stan
ley Hertzman and Samuel Feldman
who. with Edith Hunter at the piano,
provided creditable instrumental sup
port.
Featuring the young children, “The
Barnyard Bully” (music by La Salle
Spier), offered a situation whereby
divers fowls, cows and cats stroll out !
on the stage, cavort a little, then are
chased away by a somnolent dog. who

Why the Warm Weather1
Meteorologist Explains Mild Tempera
tures Due to Stalled Atmosphere.
BY MARTIN L. DOBLER, ,
Member of the American Meteorological
Society.
A "STALLED” atmosphere will
have to be blamed for the
recent extended period of
temperatures, which have
embraced the entire Eastern half of
the United States. And, by a "stalled"
atmosphere, we mean a marked slow
lng down in the eastward procession
of areas of “high'' and "low” barometer
ac-oss the country almost to a stand
still. Supposing, for example, that all
through trains eastbound on one of our
great trunk lines would so reduce
their speed under favorable operating
conditions as to cause great delays,
and Imagine the surprise and anxiety
It would cause to passengers "en route.”
This is precisely what has taken
place in our atmosphere, without any
sufficient explanation as to what caused
the "weather tie-up.” with Its re
sultant mild temperatures, and "Spring
rains,” rather than seasonable tem
peratures and heavy snows.
ferent dance tempos, brought out the
skill of Misses Polly Prickett and Ma
rian Wolberg to the best advantage,
while the effort of Composer Mary
Howe, "Cards," was noteworthy.
There was, about the accompanying
musical compositions, little that could
be described as “monumental" in orig
inality or melodic content, although it
proved itself suitable for employment
with ballet. One must remember that
music In ballet accompaniment is
valued chiefly for its rhythm and oc
casional flourishes incidental to the
pantomimlcal expression. Edward Pot
ter's composition work in "Old King
Cole” and Deane Shure's "Minuet”
were popular, especially the latter with
its typical eighteenth century dance
flavor. Mr. Potter's choral, "The Little
Jesus." sung by the chorus, also was
well received.
The Mount Vernon Church chorus
sang aeveral religious compositions by
Washington composers, Miss Edith
Gotwals at the piano. —J. S.
The barometer over Eastern North
America, for a long while, remained
high, but stationary, and in the neigh
borhood of 30.30 Inches, just high
enough to prove a blocking effect to
storm areas that would otherwise
trend more to the southeastward and
eastward, giving us heavy snows in
their wake.
Present indications, however, point
to the resumption in the next few
days, or toward the end of the week,
to more active weather types, with a
rising barometer now taking place over
the great Mackenzie River Valley of
Canada. And, in this connection, we
can expect decided fluctuations in the
temperature, and more normal wintry
weather, with plenty of snow and rain
throughout the month of January.
We do not, however, at the present
writing, expect the cold this Winter to
be too prolonged, but we can right
fully anticipate plenty of severe cold
spells, of from two to three days dura
tion at least.
One thing is assured, and that Is,
there will be an abundant supply of
moisture over the Appalachian re
gions, eastward to the Atlantic sea
board. during the current Winter, the
recent rains already having sunk very
deeply Into the soil.
