And Young Composers
By the Associated Press
MIAMI, Fla.—The Musicians’
Club of America has opened a
onique home for music lovers
here where the aged may retire
fc comfort and the young compose
In quiet.
Set in surroundings of tropical
splendor on the Douglass Gardens
estate, the home is designed, to
A place for young musicians to
A quiet retreat for retired men
tmd women of music.
A sanctuary for needy musi
A vacation headquarters for
people who wish to spend a holi
day in Florida and musical sur
The home is the brain child of
Miss Bertha Foster, founder and
president of the Musicians Club
of America, founder of the Mi
ami Conservatory of Music and
for 18 years dean of music at the
University of Miami.
Compared to Verdi Home.
“I decided something had to be
done to provide security for aged,
retired musicians,” Miss Foster
said. “So I started the Musicians
Club. It’s the first one in this
country and comparable to the
one founded by Giuseppi Verdi
In Milan, Italy, many years ago.
Membership in the club is open
to recognized musicians in all
categories, including performers,
composers, conductors, teachers,
writers and lecturers.
The club is a non-profit organiz
ation incorporated under Florida
laws and manged by a board of
directors. Miss Foster said annual
dues are paid by about 3,000 mem
bers over the country.
Miss Foster said at first it was
hoped dues and contributions
would be sufficient to finance the
Can Accomodate 110.
"That didn’t work out,” she ad
mitted. “So we finally evolved the
present plan. I’m glad now, for
we have a large house for our
headquarters, a music hall, a num
ber of cottages, a swimming pool
and the seclusion provided by
seven acres of beautiful grounds.”
“We can put up 110 people right
now,” Miss Foster said, “and hope
to be able to take care of many
more in the future. Our idea is to
create a colony where American
music will have a chance to de
velop in a congenial atmosphere.
She emphasized the two-fold
purpose of the home. Musicians
and those interested in music who
are members of the club will pay;
nominal rates to Stay here.. Nepdy

Quirino Again Advocates
Anti-Red Pacific Union
•y the Associated Press
MANILA, July 4. — President
Elpidio Quirino, speaking on the
third anniversary of Philippine
independence, again called for a
Pacific union as "our answer tc
the threat of Red imperialism."
He addressed a crowd estimated
at 80,000 persons gathered to wit
ness a three-hour military and
civic parade.
Quirino said Communism waa
in retreat in the West but at flood
tide in the East.
"We can not afford to think
that we or any other free nation
here can remain free if the coun
tries around us fall to conserve
their gains toward freedom until
they fully attain it,” he said.
"Our answer to the threat of
Red imperialism and new slavery
is a real union of peoples around
the Pacific on the basis of com
mon counsel and assistance,”
Quirino continued. “To this our
republic feels bound to commit
itself if it is to continue the pace
of its progress and see its neigh
bors share the blessings of free
dom and peace under a demo
cratic system.”
The president said the Philip
pine government was born in an
atmosphere of crisis and want,
1 “but now it is hitting its stride.”
He predicted the islands' politi
cal disturbance would disappear
shortly after the presidential elec
tion November 8.
