What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

To Nominate > v,‘ Famous Chamber Music Group Feature of Chautauqua Program Three charming young ladies— members of the Going-Bell-Epperson Company, will give Chautauqua patrons a delightful potpourri of diversi fied entertainment on the second day. A novel feature of this program is the whistling and bird calls of Miss Fay Epperson. The young lady is a real genius at imitations of the peculiar vocalism of birds and can give the Chautauqua tent the at mosphere of the old orchard or the wildwood with her calls and trillings. She gives an introductory informal talk on birds which is of interest to both old and young. Miss Epperson also excels In child impersonations. Miss Bernice Bell is a professional pianist who gives some very worthwhile numbers and also accompanies Miss Evelyn Going in the lat ter’s soprano numbers, on the whole a well rounded program of charm ing entertainment.

Me Adoo had reached a new high record, within 20 votes of a ma jority of the convention. Smith had again touched his highwat- er mark, and a series of maneu vers on the convention floor had rekindled the anomosities of the warring groups and apparently made a compromise more diffi cu lt The floor skirmishing was started by the Smith forces, who first proposed in a formal reso lution that”“ all the candidates oe invited to address the dele gates in executive session be fore there was further balolt- mg. The proposal failed of the two-thirds needed for adoption, with the McAdoo forces voting against it, and later a proposal to invite Governor Smith alone to speak from the convention platform was similarly rejected. \Then att he opening oi the night session, a letter from Mr. McAdoo was produced, suggest ing that the refusal to extend a speaking invitation to his prin cipal rival be reconsidered, but Vvhen consent was asked for it was refused by the Smith men.

Vernon will bring to Chautauqua on the third day. Music produced by stringed instruments has always had strange power over the human race. In chamber music, ensemble playing by stringed Instruments, It Is particularly appealing. The Instrumentation, of the Vernons consists of two violins, viola d’amore, Velio and planò. The viola d’amore is a rare instrument which was in vogue during medi aeval days before the violin came Into popularity. It 1ms fourteen strings, seven of which give sympathetic vibrations as the others are played with’ the bow. Mr. Vernon’s personal “clmts” between numbers are unusually en joyable, as he fully explains the compositions and tlielr significance. by the county agent for the contest and score cards are be ing made.
