Athletes provide fluid actions, as music flows from pianissimo to fortis- simo. Fans applaud, do "The Wave" or wave white hankies (isn't that a surrender in some cases)? Cheerleaders give chants and actions. And Pep Bands provide a Sports Leitmotif. So, tell all musicians that although TV watchers can't see nor hear them because the Talking Heads are ana- lyzing, the home fans are very, very appreciative of their musicians. Without the Cheer-ers and Music- makers, the players and ad- mission-paying Fans would be mighty lonely. Music will serve for a lifetime; make one elated when just happy, make one happy when sad. Music, Healer of the Helpless. There have been four Perkins-Tryon people who have had their musical, and athletic talents recognized by becoming Drum Majors at Oklahoma State Uni- versity. * The late Johnny Rusco, late 1950s. * Chris Brown, late 1970s. * Pam Cartmell, current P-T Band Director, 1973-74. * K.G. Robinson, 2010 - -. Which grade-schooler will be next to pursue a Dream? Years and years ago, some people had positive thoughts about music. "The music in my heart I bore, Long after it was heard no more." Wm. Wordaworth, 1807. "Who hears music, feels his solitude Peopled at once." Robert Browning, 1871. "Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak." Wm. Con- greve, 1697. "How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon the bank! Here will we sit and let the sounds of music creep in our ears; soft stillness, and the night becomes the touches of sweet harmony." Shakespeare. The Merchant of Venice, 1597. The FOL has several hun- dreds of books for sale at a very low price. Hardback books are $1.00, Paper- backs are .50 and children's books are .25 cents. Books range from fiction to non- fiction, romance to myster- ies, self-help to religion. All books are sorted and clearly marked for easy access. New books are added daily so if you didn't find what you wanted the first day feel free to return often to see what's new. The Perry progress club will also be holding their annual tea on Wednesday April 14th immediately before they unveil the new statue that will be donated to the library. The statue will be placed on the south side of the library. The FOL have announced the winners of the story writing contest. First place went to Julie Gunsaulis, second went to Kenned Cockriel and third went to Kirsten Schweer. Prizes were gift certificates towards scholastic books. The children are students of Stephnie Looper's lan- guage arts class. They were required to write a story about Chester Cricket and his travels through Okla- homa with a scissortail bird. They were to describe in detail and illustrate each place they visited. Mayor Chuck Hall judged the stories for the FOL and was on hand to congratu- late the children and have his photo taken with the winners. The stories have been on display at the Carnegie Library during the month of March and will remain on display awhile longer. Everyone should take the time to stop by and read some of these stories. The Perry Elementary School has some very promising authors. The Friends have designed and landscaped a sitting area on the west side of the Library. The shaded area now provides benches and planters of flowers for a comfortable area to sit and read or a place to rest while enjoying the town square. The two benches were donated in memory of Gene Richardson and Lucy Foster two well- known Perry citizens who enjoyed not only visiting the library., but were very proud of their home town, spending many hours walking around the square and enjoying the scenery. Most of the flowers have been donated also and among them is a maroon Iris in honor of our school colors. The project is a work in progress and their is plans for many new items to be added in the near future.
