ITHACA, N.Y. - The Student
Council at Cornell University fi-
nally succeeded in ending its reg-
ular meetings before the Christ-
mas recess.
The Council has been fighting
for the discontinuation of regular
meetings since the beginning of
the semester.
The debate was marred by 'in-
decorous' remarks and the meet-
ing was climaxed by the resigna-
tion of a representative-at-large.

LJ The student, Michael Davidson,
charged that it was the "greatest
fiasco I've ever seen . . . and a
mockery of the electorate." He
was referring to the sudden ap-

Noted Violinist Advises
Contemplation in Music

It's funny, but I just can't
imagine myself as anything but a1
violinist," Nathan Milstein musedI
as he leaned forward in his chair.
"Since I was seven years old,
the violin and I have been insep-
arable. At first, I hated it, hatedj
to practice. But my mother madel
me keep at it, and now I certain-
ly am glad," the artist remarked
with a warm smile.
"Today, however, I rarely prac-
tice, since I have been playing
most of my numbers for 35-40
years. What I do do though is
Milstein explained this further
by adding that "the quality of
music is actually found in one's
thinking about it. Music only pre-
sents a thought, and because a
thought is never complete, it is
impossible to say that you have
completely mastered a musical
More Understanding
"One has never thought enough,
and even in the greatest musician,
there is always room for a greater
understanding of the composi-
"I was in my teens when I
started to love music, to under-
stand and appreciate it," the vi-
olinist recalled. "I found that
through the violin I was able to
express myself and communicate
with people," he added.
Milstein was born in Russia but
has adopted America as his home.
When he was 16, he made his first
concert tour ofRussia though he
had made public appearances
when he was but ten years old.
Plays Through Europe
He played in Paris, Spain and
other European music centers be-
fore coming to the United States
in 1929, bringing with him a Euro-
pean reputation of greatness.
His first appearances with the
Philadelphia Orchestra and later
with the New York Philharmonic
Symphony were tremendously
successful. He established a repu-
tation both as a technician and
and as a supremely sensitive inter-
Despite his United States per-
formances with complete orches-
tras, Milstein prefers playing with
only a piano accompaniment. "In
this way, I'm my own boss, like I
was in my concert here Monday
night. Orchestras are nice, but it
is so hard for 80 men to conform
to the playing of one," he admit-
Six Months Abroad
The artist spends six months of
the year touring the United States
and the remaining six months
abroad. He has made repeated ap-
pearances in almost all the major
capitals of the world.

ences are the same," the violinist

Nuclear propulsion and stream-

moth submarines the most effi-
cient means of trans-oceanic car-

Although the discovery of nu-
clear energy has solved the prob-
lem of fuel for these crafts, the
full possibilities of submarine use
have'not yet been fully exploited.
Until after World War II, the
capabilities of the submarine were
not really appreciated. Since the
war, however, naval architects
have been working on a true un-
derwater vessel, and the principle
of nuclear propulsion has been
put to use.

In the case of the beputy As-

is not that the city is unwilling or

that there is a shortage of trained

only will it travel at more than
thirty knots, but it will be able to
travel by shorter routes, such as
the polar route first covered by
the "Nautilus."
Prof. Richard B. Couch, chair-
man of the Department of Naval
Architecture and Marine Engi-
neering says, "The best design
now seems to be much like a diri-
gible. The 'Albacore,' the Navy's
fastest - its speed is secret - has
this shape with virtually all ex-
ternal apparatus removed to cut
"It also has just one propeller.
The design directs the water right
into the propeller, giving greater
propeller efficiency and even
gaining some energy from the
water pulled along by the hull.
"All these facts, of course, have
given rise to talk of commercial
submarines as tankers," he said.
"Because of this increasing in-
terest in submarines," he con-
tinued, "both Navy and possible
future commercial, more ship-
yards are gearing to build them.
