KHRUSHCH|V VENTS HIS FURY -- Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushehev pounds his desk in fury at the United Nations General Assembly after hearing U.N. Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold re- Ject Khrushchev's bid that he resign.

Nearly 40 members of the Minnesota Chapter of the Asso- ciation of Theatre Organ Enthus- iasts came to Bismarck re- cently and tamed Reiny Del- zer's mighty white and gold four- manual Wurlitzer. Left-to-right: Clyde Olson of Minneapolis (at the console), Dick Peterson of Minneapolis, Delzer and Bob Paige of Minn- eapolis. A Saturday night concert by the most accomplished theatre organists in the northwest cli- maxed two years of complete renovation of the noble instru- ment which Delzer had purchased from the now demolished Radio City Theatre in Minneapolis. "It was worth every cent I've put into it," Delzer said, and visiting organists agreed. "Finest thing I've ever play- er," observed Paige, whose com- bined musicianship and show- manship drew a standing ovation from the more than 50 guests who attended the 8 a.m. Saturday to 4 a.m. Sunday affair. "It's three times the organ it was in the old theater," said A1 Sch- mitz of Robbinsdale, Minn. For three days prior to the organ christening, Charles Sny- der and Don Newman of Grand Island, Neb. had voiced the in- strument's twenty sets of pipes-- 1,480 in all. from pencil size to 16-feet high. Orgamszs began arriving Fri- day evemng, clustered around the instrument like flies on a cake of sugar and got in a few practice licks. Saturday evening 15-year-old John Ellis of Mandan led off, and Delzer's recreation room rever- berated with music, almost with- out interruption, for the next eight hours . Personable Don Taft of Minn- eapolis served as master of cere- monies generating an air of good humor and high camaraderie as organists succeeded one another in the pink light flooding the console. Olson. A1 Schmitz and others showed off their best stop-com- binations and performed their very biggest numbers. Jim Kennedy of Duluth, veter- an theatre organist, pleased the guests too, with a wonderful collection of nostalgia--"Your're the Cream in My Coffee", "When I Take My Sugar to Tea", "Lucky in Love". "The Varsity Drag" and others performed in the authentic style which conjures the feel and aura of the giant old movie palaces with their gilt and chan- deliers. Taft challenged him to "ac- company" an old silent picture, calling off the titles, inventing the action and providing a hilar- ious imitation of popcorn-eat- ing, emotionally embroiled audi- ence reaction. Following a brief intermission, Bob Paige wowed the group with show-arrangements of "Stars Fell on Alabama, "Just One of Those Things", "Poinciana", "There's No Business Like Show Business' and a few others the audience had requested. With several dozen organists present, there was naturally some good natured kibitsing and back seat driving. Whenever a per- former hit on a unique combin- ation of stops or an especially effective progression of chords, an envious murmur blended into the music. Colored lighting concealed in the beamed ceiling of the large recreation room heightened the pipe organ's nostalgic effect. For those present it was an evening to be long remember- ed, fortissimo. Court to Hear Action Against NDHSAA, Etc. A hearing is scheduled Oct. 17 at I0 a.m. in Burleigh County District Court on a writ of man- d~nu.~ in an action brought by Harold Schafer of Bismarck, who is seeking to obtain medals and ribbons won by former state high school golf champion Bob Smith of Bismarck. Judge Cliford J. Schneller will hear the request, posed in Febru- rary, 1959 to force the North Da- kota Hi~ School Activities Assn. to h~nd over medals won by Smith in 1957 and to enroll Smith's name on the records as state golf champion for that year. Named defendants in the action are members of the Bismarck school board of directors and Earl Abr'ahamson. executive sec- retary of the NDHSAA. The NDHSAA attempted to rule Smith and two other ath- letes ineligible for track and field sports in the spring of 1957 because they had participated in a basketball tournament held 8s a part of a DeMolay conclave in Bismarck. Burleigh County Di~strict Judge George Thom Jr ruled that Smith and the others had a right to p~rticipate in the sports activi- ties. The State Supreme Court later dismissed an appeal by the association on the grounds that the point was moot and the boys had participated. Schafer, a DeMol'ay official, has been trying to get Smith, who is now attending the University of Oklahoma, credited for winning the state high school golf tourna- ment in 1957 and to get his med- als ~nd trophies delivered to him. Here's what the new 33A% interest rate on U.S. Savings Bonds means to you" 1 t Kathy Houle, of Mt. Clemens, Mich a pretty blue-eyed bru- nette "going on five," poses ~today with perfect self-com- mand as her schoolteacher mother lectures on the heart- breaking topic of birth defects. Kathy doesn't mind being one of her mother's lecture "props." Mother and daughter are dedi- cated to the proposition that since 250,000 infants are born ~early with significant birth efects---and 34,000 baoies an- nually are stillborn or die within the first month because of birth defects--the more widely the subject is discussed, the healthier for the nation. The National Foundation, which financed the develop- ment of both the Salk and Sabin polio vaccines, is now supporting research and patient care for birth defects and ar- thritis through the New March of Dimes. Kathy has ample reason for , her devotion to the cause em- : braced by her mother and her- self. The child was born with the forbidding birth defects of an open spine and excess fluid on the brain. When only weeks ~old, Kathy underwent major ,surgery three times. Doctors told the parents: '~Enjoy the baby while you can. She may not be with you for long."
