CHARLES R. LEWIS Next week the Olympia Civic 'Music Association conducts its .membership drive, and it is hoped ithat a large number from Shel- Iton will subscribe. We have a icultured city and we should sup- : port Olympia in its effort to bring ’good music to the people at such a nominal cost. i In three years this association lhas had eleven concerts, among (others such topflight artists as lGladys Swartout, Martinelli, The Seattle Symphony Orchestra, the Don Cossack singers, etc. One would have to pay a much higher price ordinarily to hear programs of such character in the large cities, besides the expense and trouble of longer trips. The program for the coming season has not yet been outlined, but Donald Dickson is promised. He was received most enthusiastical- ly last year every place he ap- peared. Those helping in this worthwhile home were infected by the zeal and enthusiasm of Mrs. Raymond .Clifford and Mrs. James Neal, who came from Olympia to arouse interest here. They are Ben ,Hallgrimson. Mrs. A, E. Hillier, Louis Karl VVeinel. Mrs. Charles 'R. Lewis, Miss Norma Johnson 'and Miss Ida Olson. All workers are invited to a dinner Monday evening at the iHotel Olympian in Olympia. Any others willing to serve on the committee please get in touch with Mr. Hallgrimson. Tickets for the season can be .pbtaa'ned from .any,of. these work— ‘ers.

It is hoped that many students will attend, the love of music can only be. acquired by hearing it and a child can‘t hear it too soon or too often. In these tense times there is nothing more restoring and inspiring than good music. Shelton should be well represented at these concerts. iGlenna Fitz Reports Meeting Activities At our program committee, those elect- ied were Barbara Butler and Vir— ginia Connolly.

Nastealer Now Has New Car For Local Inspectionl If local motorists haVe any doubt that the automobile indus- try will have new and greatly im# proved cars this year, Owen Pig- mon head of Pigmon Motors, Nash dealers here, can reassure them. Just returned from a national meeting of Nash dealers and of-l ‘ficials in Chicago, where he in-l spected the new 1942 Nash cars,' Pigmon reports that the industry's advancements this year will be! 1 consistent with its constant.record of progress from year to year. “I don't believe that Nash has ever built a better looking car than these new models, and from every other standpoint, they cer- tainly represent the most com. plet'ely new development in the business,” Pigmon declared. The new Nash ‘600’ will be the most significant car of the year,‘ in Pigmon’s opinion, because of its unusual gasoline economy. “With gasoline shortages al- ready affecting the eastern sea- board, thc indication is that the Whole country may ultimately feel the pinch," he said, “and people are going to be very much in~ irrested in an automobile that has demonstrated its ability to travel tip to 600 miles on a single tank- ful of gasoline." He said that Nash Motors and a great part of the automobile industry is now engaged in var~ ious phases of aircraft production. and that this will unquestionably affect future motor car produc- tion for the better.
