Alex Skovgaard, The Noted Violinist,
And, Misses McClung And Wright
Are Greeted by Appreciative Au
dience. Before taking up the program of
the Skovgaard concert Wednesday
evening, the I). A. 11. should be high
ly commended 'for their taste and
discrimination in providing a concert
which gave such exquisite pleasure.
Sjogren, the composer of the first
number on the program, is a Swede,
who is fast coming to the front
among the modern composers. The
striking contrasts of the three move
ments of the Sonata suggested the
bold promontories and smiling val
leys of Sweden.
In the con fuoeo. Miss McClung
and Skovgaard rose to the height
of power and sublimity, and no wheic
was the ensemble more perfect than
in this movement. . The theme of the
Bnieh concerto is lovely and 'appeal
ing, and the finale moves one irresis
tiblywith its joy and sparkle. 'Mr.
Skovgaard played next a group, the
first two numbers of which were
(piaint and charming, and lovers of
Chopin were delightd to hear the
Sarasata arrangement of the famil
iar nocturne. And here the artist
drew from the muted violin a quality
of tone so ethereal that it seemed
to come down from Heaven.
The group of oiiginal compositions
save distinct evidence of the crea
tive ability of the composer, and he
played them with iprodigal temper
ament and brilliance. Indeed, few
artists possess the skilled technic
and interpretatives ability of Skov
gaard. The soprano,, Miss Wright,
has a rich mezzo of much promise.
She was particularly pleasing in the
group of pieces, singing: "Oh, Drj
Those Tears," with excellent effect,
accompanied by the lovely violin ob
ligato sounding from another room.
Miss Wiight's encores were unusu
ally pleasing. Among many distin
guished accompanists, Miss McClung
is notable, and her exquisite playing
of the two solos, the Liszt Tarantelle
and the Sextette from Lucia for left
hand were wonderfully well done
She is an artist of rare gifts.
So pleased was -Skovgaard with
the appreciation accorded that lie
gave an extra number, the noble
Handel Sonata. As an encore, the
"Suwanne River" was cnobled a
the writer had never heard it either
in' song or instrumentally. The
Mischa ,Elmau arrangement of the
Schubert" Cradle Song was the other
encpre. It is very difficult to iplay
aiid ;was lovely beyond compare.
Thrice happy those who heard the
concert last night.

House passed a bill Wednesday for-,
Ifidding s-h'ipmciUs of liquor .from
"wet" counties in Kentucky into
"dry" counties by a vote of 47 to 31).
Representative Elwoed Hamilton,
of Frankiin, charged, without quali
fication that the liquor interests,
through their extensive lobby and
wire-pullers in their employ, had
come to this city in laige numbers
and secured an amendment to the di
rect primary law which excluded
from the operation of the primary
bill any, primary election or conven
tion that had been called prior to
the passage of the primary bill.' Rep
resentative Hamilton asserted that
it would be only a mailer of time un
til (he people of Kantuck would rise
up in their might and pass more
drastic liquor regulating laws if the
liquor interests did not quit meddling
in legislation that did not concern
