1 MRS. WAGONER IN RECITAL
) OF HER OWN COMPOSITIONS
' Present* Program Friday Night and
Assisted by Number of Other Prom
B.v MRS. S. A. WOLFF.
Concord boasted Friday evening an
event that was unique in the state
when one of her daughters appeared
in concert presenting an entire pro
gram of her own composition*.
Mrs. Charles B. Wagoner, nee
Janie Alexander Patterson, assisted
by Mrs. Leslie Correll, Mrs. George
Edwards, Kay Patterson and William
Wright, gave to the music lovers of
the city a delightful treat.
The first number consisted of a
group of three instrumental pieces
played by Mrs. Wagoner, who beside
being a composer, is a singer and ac
complished pianist. '"Poe Wedding
March" led one from the tender strains
of a love _ to the triumphant
completion of love in the marriage of
"The Breath of Spring,” as its
name signifies, was a dainty little
piece speaking of springing flowers
and April showers and bird songs, the
first four measures being made from
the robin’s song. “At the Circus”
was a decided contrast to the other
tyro, it portraying the gaiety and noise
of the circus. This was awarded the
Cooper music cup in 1925,
The second number consisted of a
group of songs sung by Mrs. Edwards,
nee Nancy Lee Patterson, who has a
pure and sweet soprano voice. She
was accompanied by Mrs. Corrrell.
"The Holy Child,” words by J.
Addington Symond, was a Christmas
lkllaby which portrayed the virgin
singing to the infant Jesus. The
music easily fitted the lovely words.
In the next number, Mrs. Wagoner
composed music to the Ballad of
Trees and the .Master, that immortal
poem by Sidney Lanier. In this,
the sorrow pnd suffering of Gethsema
lie. with the peace of submission to
God's will, thrilled one in the music.
“love's Way,” words by Franih
Stanton, was a beautiful little poem
set to a beautiful tuneful music.
The third brace consisted of two
instrumental pieces played b.v Mrs.
Correll with flute obligato by Kay
I’atterson, “Legend of tire Thrush.”;
and "The Birdling.” These made
entrancing numbers, one hearing the
twittering and chirping as the soaring
song of birds with a delightful ae
eompaniment running along with it.
In the fourth group. Mrs. Edwards
charmingly played three piano pieces.
"The Flight," prize winner in 1911.
suggested the flight of birds to ether
dimes when summer comes. “The
Dance Aesthetique” made one dream
of beautiful movement in the dance.
"The Maid and the Butterfly" was
a little airy, fairy thing, joyful in
The fifth number consisted of a
group of pieces for violin and piano,
the piano being played as only Mrs.
Correll can play and the violin by
Mr. Wright, a master of the sweet
toned instrument. "Through Wood
and Field” suggested the solemn medi
tation of one who wanders in God's
"Spanish Dance,” one of Mrs. Wag
oner's greatest works and winner of
the Dunean cup in 1925. made one,
by its tune and rhythft, wish to tread
the light fantastic. “Cradle Song.” 1
awarded a gold medal in 1913, had a
pretty little melody atidi one could
visualize the happy mother lulling
the little one to sleep.
Follow ing was a group of songs by-
Mrs, Wagoner accompanied b.v Mrs.
Correll and sung in the former's won
derful. lyric soprano. "There Is No
One Beside Thee," b.v Mrs. E. B.
Browning, set to appropriate music
showing love joyful with a sad under
tone. “When Earth’s Last Picture
Is Painted.” word by Rudynrd Kip
ling. proved a most delightful number.
"The Sweetest Flow'r That Jtlows"
was a pleasing little thing, beautiful
ly written, sweetly sung, with an ex
quisite flute obligato.
“I'iider Scarlet Heavens” brought
the program to a close. In this
number, Mr. Wright and Mr. Patter
son played the violin and flute, accom
panied by Mrs. Correll. This is one
of Mrs. Wagoner’s latest compositions
and is perhaps her best. The melody
reminds one of a grand old hymn
and the religious feeling animates the
whole composition. One hears the
Psalmist exclaim: "The heavens de
clare the glory of God." - ,
Concord should be proud of liCr
composer, Mrs. Wagoner, and of the
artists who assisted her. There was
a very large audience showing how
much Concord appreciates good mu

LOCAL BASKETBALL FIVE
Runs Wild During Last Part of Each
Half and Runs l T p Score Against
Tired Concord Piayers.
Concord's basketeers were beaten
Friday night when they struck the
strong Charlotte aggregation in the
iQneen City, being unable to stop the
accurate passwork of the linkmen.
The score at the end of the game
The feature of the game, if there
was any, was the unusual number of
fouls palled oil the members of both
teams, Wolff, of the Concord five, be
ing banished from the game at the
opening of the second frame.
The locals took the lead in the
early stages of the contest when Liv
ingston Easley caged a neat basket
from n difficult angle. For some
time thereafter neitiler side scored.
Then a foul goal and a basket by-
Andrews put Charlotte in the lead,
Which was neytr overcome. .
Up until the closing stages of the
first half, however, the Concordians
were able to put up an excellent de-1
sense, ’holding all the Charlotte crack
shots at bay, including the famous
Sam McDonald, With the single excep
tion of Andrews, at center, who caged
balls with but little effort and was
high scorer in the game.
In the second half, a scrub aggre
; gation was run in b.v Coach Link.
For a short while the locals ran
wild and it was only when a part of
the first team was again entered that
the Concord footing was stopped.
During the last momebts of the game,
the Charlotte team was able to work
through the tired Concord five effec
The total number of fouls called
during the game was 13 against doU
cord and 12 against Charlotte.
