greatest victory in state history,
Gov. G. Mennen Williams' ma-
jority was less than in either of
the last two campaigns."
This seems to indicate that
while the Democratic Party is
gaining strength. the Governor's
personal popularity is being re-
duced, Sallade observed.
"He'll have to produce a pretty
good record if he wants the "pres-
idential) nomination in 1960,
though," Sallade said. This will
require a program for recovering
lost industry and improving state
services, he added.
In the House, Sallade pictured
a "golden opportunity for leader-
ship," made possible by the 55-55
membership split. Since neither
party will be in control, he said,
a closely-knit bloc of legislators
might be able to swing the vote
on crucial issues.

VIOLINIST PERFORMS HERE:
Warm Smile Introduces Isaac Stern

By ANN EICHLER
A warm smile and hearty hand-
shake was introduction from one
of America's great violinists. Isaac
Stern. who appeared here last
night in the second concert of the
University's Extra Concert Series.

never to repeat the same pieces in
the same city for ten years after
he has played there.
Commenting on his trip to Rus-
sia at the invitation of the Soviet
Ministry of Culture and the U. S.
State Department two years ago,
Stern said that lie received in-

language well, although he can credible receptions, which were

speaks six languages," he said,
"and thus, between us, we can'
make ourselves understood."
Never 'Plays Down'
"Our programs are on a gen-;
eral level, and we never play down
to any audience or play pops pro-
grams," he commented as he,
leaned back in his chair. "But,"
he continued. "we do change the
programs according to our own,
desire to play various works. We
have four or five programs inl
playing shape for each season,,
and add to these each year." He
said that he keeps a list of what
he plays in each city, and tries1

"After a concert, 1,000 or 1.500
people would gather, and they
were very friendly and open," he
reminisced. "We spoke Russian,
and during a special interview for
students after a concert the stu-
dents showed an exceptional in-
terest in American students' mu-
sical education, life and opportu-
nities. They asked all sorts of
questions about our musical op-
portunities here."

Moscow, Leningrad, Kiev, Tblisi
(former capital of Georgia "home
of a student named Stalin") and
in capital cities of the various
Russian republics.

Iasternak's
P1
'Dr. Zhivago'
Interpreted
By JAN RAHMI
"Some of the Soviet reaction to
Boris Pasternak's novel "Dr. Zhi-
vago." is probably due to his in-
sistence on divine inspiration
rather than on inspiration from
the the mechanical world about
him." Prof. Marvin Felheim of the
English department said of the
Nobel prize-winning novel.
"Dr. Zhivago turns not merely
to the act of writing about the
world around him, but he becomes
an agent of some higher force
which leads him and gives him
the strength through which he
writes," Prof. Felheim explained
to the overflow crowd at the
League-sponsored book review
Tuesday evening.
Pasternak's novel is laid in Rus-
sia during the revolution of 1917
and the time afterward. The vil-
lains are not just the Soviets. In
fact, two of the "angels of mercy"
In the book are high-ranking
Soviets who "also happen to have
hearts of gold."
Upset About Wars
Pasternak is not upset about
communism, per se, but rather
about the results of wars and-

BEFORE THE PERFORMANCE-Violinist Isaac Stern picks up
his instrument in a moment of practice before his concert last
night in Hill Aud, Stern says he doesn't "play down" to his
audiences, just chooses what he enjoys performing, although he
tries never to do the same numbers twice in the same place.

"Foreign audiences are more
aware of music than Americans
sometimes in certain cases," he
observed. "They are a little more
aware of the nuances simply be-
cause they are experienced; the
music has been part of their edu-
cation for hundreds of years. In
other words, they have lived with
it longer, so naturally they are
more sensitive to it."
"Foreigners are much less afraid
to be emotionally involved in the
classical music," Stern said. "But
the students show the same
awareness as in America; they are
more alive, alert and willing when
they come to a concert.",
He has not played specifically

though there were some in the
towns. He has appeared at univer-
sities throughout this country.
"A majority of Israelis are of
European parentage, and the in-
flux has been from central and
eastern Europe since 1945," he
commented, referring to recent
trips to_ that country. "The older
people brought the fuel of back-
ground classical music interest,
and they form the core of the
audiences."
Says Violin Speaks
Stern agrees with the well-
known suggestion that the violin
really "speaks." He attributes this
to the fact that it sounds more
like the human voice than any
other instrument, which gives the
possibility of sensitive and emo-
tional nuance. This contributes
to the full realization of the dif-
ferent reactions that the varied
audiences have."
In Russia and many other for-
eign countries, as well as recently
in America, the artists teach as
well as tour the country. Leaning
forward again, Stern began to dis-
cuss the Russian educational sys-
tem in music.
"Russian education is entirely
state-controlled," he stated. "In
music, talent is found in the
small cities, and the students are
sent to a conservatory, where they
compete for the chance to enterI
the Moscow Conservatory. There
they are. paid for being educated,
and within a few years their ca-
reer is mapped out. From a rating
they receive by the board, a spe-
cial sum is paid to them, with
deductions through the years,"
Artists Paid to Teach
"All leading artists are paid a
very high sum to teach at the
Conservatory," he continued, "and"
since there are no taxes, they ac-
cumulate a great deal."
This arrangement of teaching is
something "very healthy" to

arrange time to teach at least quarrels, Prof.-Felheim commented.

master classes. He feels that itj
is almost an obligation, since the
experiences that a student and
teacher have are important and
valid. He said that a few musi-
cians in this country have now set
up teaching studios. "If they are
not for all students," he con-
tinued, "they should at least be
for the up-and-coming ones. The
master classes should be taught
so that teachers can observe."
Owl Proves'1
Phone Bo
Full of Fact
By THOMAS TURNER
"Rock-doodle?" the familiar ad-
vertising goes, "If it's not in the
Yellow Pages maybe there's no
such thing."
But readers"of the classified sec.
tion of the new Ann Arbor tele-
phone directory will be delighted
to learn that there is such a thing
as Goeffrey Chaucer, a General
in the Air Force, the Hanging
Gardens of Babylon, parliamentary
procedure and Einstein's Theory
of Relativity,
Contain 'Fact Finder'
For now the Yellow Pages which
once merely listed tradesmen, re-
tailers and the like, contains a
"Wolley Segap Fact Finder." An
owl with a book for a body and a
mortarboard for a hat "identifies
the New Look features." Whether
or not this little figure is Wooley
Segap himself is left to the read-
er's imagination.
Following through the classified
section, the reader first runs across
the little owl between "Air Com-
pressors--Retail" and "Air Condi-
tioning Contractors." He is accom-
panied by a list of military in-
signia,
Segap Tells of Oldest Flag
Ranging farther and farther
afield, Segap tells the reader that
the world's oldest flag is that of
Denmark, that barbeque sauce
contains one teaspoon of rosemary
or oregano, that persimmon trees
are difficult to transplant, that
John Masefield Is the Poet-Laur-
eate of England, that Babe Ruth
hit no home runs in 1914 and the
face of Salmon Chase graces a
$10,000 bill.
"People are on the move Mr.
Businessman," a notice concludes)
toward the end of this informativel
tour, "all through the yellow;
pages."1

The author is concerned with a
whole world which goes to pieces
because of war, and as a result
the glittering phrase becomes a
universal panacea.
Although Dr. Zhivago hates the
immorality of the world around
him, his o'wn life does not follow
the conventional standards of
morality. In this way, Prof. Fel-
heim noted, the main character is
"less than heroic in the classical
sense, but then he is a man of our
times."
Calls Book Difficult
Prof. Felheim said that struc-
turally "Dr. Zhivgo" is a very
diffcult novel. It is both an epic,
poetic treatment of an important
period in Russian history and a
biography of a man who comes to
the conclusion that only through
writing can he become alive and
really express himself.
Added to the reader's problems
is the way in which time se-
quences are presented. Prof. Fal-
heim explained that frequently
the reader has to strain in order
to know just where he is and what
is going on.
Calls Book 'Not Worthy'
Prof. Felheim said that le
found himself agreeing with the
Soviet officials in that he did not
feel the book was worthy of win-
ning the Nobel prize. He explained
that some of this feeling may be
because he was foced to read the
book in translation and was not
always sure just..what the author
meant.
It is significant that a work of
art can become the subject of such
political discussion, Prof. Felheim
said. He added that it is worth-
while reading, but should not be
read only because of its political
overtones.
