Title I Could Never Forget the Chautauqua
Description tives came. The weather was just perfect, thank goodness. I'd like to describe some of the other numbers, but Kama 3 s calling me to do the dishes." I must mention one presentation that remains firmly in my mind in that 1920 Chautauqua. It was a stage playr & comedy, produced by the B. Y. U. The leading lady impressed me as being most charming and beautiful. Her name? Hiss Alice Ludlow, later to becoae Mrs. Ernest Wilkinson, who resides in Salt Lake City at present. The traveling Chautauqua probably reached its height about the time of the First ¥orld War. After the close of the war, the auto-mo"bile, the movie, the radio, and improved roads came and people began to seek other avenues of instruction and entertainment, and the Chautauqua declined. However, the original institution at Chautauqua, New York, still flourishes and is a nationally recognized cultural center. Every summer courses in music and the arts are offered. The hymn "Chautauqua," or 'TJay is Dying in the West" was written for these meetings, and is included in soae hymn books today. This last verse expresses the Chautauqua spiriti Lord of lijfe, beneath the dome Of the Universe, They home, Gather us who seek They face For Thou art nigh. The voices and echoes are gone, but far some of us who lived in Mt. Pleasant at that time of the Chautauquas, roseate memories raoain. I could never forget it. Sources! Personal recollection America's Musical Heritage, by Burke, Heierhoffer, and Phillips. -19-
