Pacific Grove Daily Review, CA June. 8, 1922
Betrothel Announced Winning-Kingman
On Tuesday evening, at San Jose, in connection with the College of the Pacific, Miss Ruth Winning, daughter of Reverend and Mrs. Charles E. Winning, of this place, gave her Senior Musical Recital in the Conservatory building on the same platform where her father delivered the Master’s Oration and received his Master’s degree thirty years ago. Concerning the recital the San Jose Mercury Herald said “It was more than a graduating recital – it was a real concert. Miss Ruth Winning, mezzo-contralto, and Harold Hestwood, composer-pianist accompanist); were real artists rather than mere pupils taking final examinations. Miss Winning has an exceptionally rich and pleasing voice which shows careful training. She opened the program with “Mon Couer S’Ouvre a la Voix,” from Sampson and Delilah. She sand the well-known number beautifully. Her next two numbers were composed by Mr. Hestwood and were “Pine Song,” a graceful and imaginative composition and Miss Winning gave it with a sincerity that was charming. Then followed ‘Supplication” which combined force and fancy with a most fetching fashion, and is a most pleasing and graceful thing, “A Woman’s Last Word” was the theme of a cycle that she gave as her final number. The brisk little pieces included in the group were “Let’s Contend No More,” “What the Wild as Words Are,” and “He a God and Hold ME.” Then followed “Angel Cake” and the concluding number, “Separation.” The unprecidated attendance upon the recital evinced the high estimate put upon Miss Winning’s musical ability and personal charm. After the recital the Vendone Hotel housed a most delightful Recital Party, attended by a score or more of Miss Winning’s school friends and the members of her immediate family. The private dining room was appropriately decorated and for an hour and a half the merry gathering did gracious home to the young lady who had just acquitted herself so charmingly and who will soon receive her degree. The place cards were unique and proved significant. Each was a … a little Chinese mandarin with oriental hat and proverbial queue, which a queue proved the “cue” to the evening’s motif. When the coffee was served on each cup was a little card saying, “Have you followed your queue?” which aroused the curiosity of the people and upon pulling at the queues there was drawn from each kewpie a little scroll upon which was written “Betrothed: Winning-Kingman.” Then everyone understood the burning punk, the mandarin place cards, and the oriental setting, for Mr. Harry Kingman, born in China, is now a professor, in the University of Nankin. Congratulations immediately followed, for Mr. Harry Kingman is one of the best known College men not only of California but of the United States. He is the son of the late Reverend Henry Kingman, Congregational Mission in China. Reverend Kingman’s chief work was being largely instrumental in having the Bible translated into the Chinese language. Born in China, Mr. Harry Kingman came to the United States for his education and was graduated from the Pomona College; then he took post graduate work in the East, after which he was as Y.M.C.A. Secretary Religious Director of the University of California for three years. While there he met with Miss Winning who was a student in California University at that time. Last year he travelled throughout the United States, speaking in all of the leading Colleges and Universities, in behalf of the Student Volunteer movement, and last August he accepted a position in the University of Nanking where, in addition to his (incomplete)
