Figure The Scott-Hipple Company Figure APPRECIATIONS There are thousands of good musicians whose ability and technic are great, but one may count on the fingers of his two hands the few who possess that extra divine touch we call genius. The first time I saw Hipple play, even though it was only on the kettle drum and cymbals, I said. Here is a musician of distinction. When I heard him on the slide trombone, I was convinced that he was a master, but when I saw and heard him play the xylophone, I shouted: Here is a masterly genius. —GEORGE WHARTON JAMES. For three seasons Earl H. Hipple has been our feature soloist, and to say that he has made good would, indeed, be putting it very mildly. I have never heard his equal, either in lyceum or vaudeville, and I predict for him a large measure of success at the head of his own company. —H. L. BLAND, Manager Chautauqua Attractions. Figure The Scott-Hipple Company Figure APPRECIATIONS Of Fern Isabel Betts as a cellist, I will say that I have had few pupils of greater promise. She has the adaptability, that indefinable, yet supremely essential quality of personality, which marks the true artist. She possesses unusual dramatic ability, and I predict unqualified success for her in her chosen field.— FRANZ WAGNER. Fern Isabel Betts combines personality with a great natural gift for entertaining an audience with her readings. It is seldom we find a musician who really reads well, but in this case I hardly know which branch of the art field she adorns the better, music or the drama. I only know she will please greatly in both.— ELIAS DAY. Miss Forsythe has had thorough training. She has given seven years to securing the best possible equipment in violin and piano, and is an excellent performer on both instruments. She is also a composer, and has played some of her own compositions to the delight of her audiences.— The Baptist Advance, Little Rock, Ark. The selections chosen by Miss Forsythe were charmingly rendered and heartily applauded. The numbers served to show her good tone quality and the sureness of touch which are characteristic of her violin playing.— Jacksonville (Ill.) Journal. THE SCOTT-HIPPLE COMPANY The Scott-Hipple Company is unusually well prepared by training and experience to offer a high class program of popular merit. CHESTER R. SCOTT has won a host of friends and admirers during his several years of concert work as cornet soloist. His playing is characterized by wonderful brilliancy and interpretation. He uses some of his own compositions for cornet with telling effect. EARL H. HIPPLE has been a great favorite with his audiences wherever he has appeared. His work has inspired the greatest enthusiasm whether as trombone or xylophone soloist, or with the drums in concerted numbers. His personality and musicianship give him an important place among the most successful of platform entertainers. ALMA FORSYTHE, violinist, is an artist to her finger tips. Richly endowed by nature, she has supplemented these gifts by thorough study at the Illinois Conservatory, from which she was graduated and where she afterwards taught most acceptably for several years. FERN ISABEL BETTS has studied 'cello with the well known instructor, Mr. Franz Wagner, and dramatic art with Elias Day, director of the Lyceum Arts Conservatory, Chicago. Her numbers are presented with a skill and personal attractiveness that win for her unqualified success. MRS. C. R. SCOTT is an accompanist of marked ability who contributes much to the success of an artistic, entertaining program.
