Organ recital to dedicate zimbelstern

Graduates and professors from the School of Music will perform in a dedication recital commemorating the installation of a zimbelstern at 3 p.m. Sunday in the Markham Organ Studio of the Gladys McCrary Music Building.

The zimbelstern, an organ extension that produces a bell-like sound, was added to the Letourneau Organ in Markham Studio in honor of Martha Barkema, a former voice professor at the University and former choir director of First Baptist Church of Waco.

Organist performers include Dr. Joyce Jones, the Joyce Oliver Bowden Professor of Music and Organist-in-Residence, Herbert Colvin, a retired music professor and University carillonneur and Jason Ranton, organist at First Baptist Church and student media adviser. The zimbelstern was donated to the Univeristy by Barkema's former students.

Police registering autos to prevent theft

The Waco Police Department is holding registration for vehicles at the St. Louis Church parking lot from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday for a new program designed to minimize auto thefts.

The program, called Help End Auto Theft, will help officers locate stolen cars between the hours of 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. in which they will recognize registered vehicles and treat them as stolen. At the registration, the WPD will affix a color-coded decal to the front and back windshields, and enter vehicles into a statewide database for instant 24-hour access. For more information, call the Crime Prevention Unit at 750-1763 or 750-1761.
