The New York City Opera, which
performed this weekend at Hill
Aud., is completing its 22nd sea-
son. The company's youth should
not suggest that it is a little sister
to the Metropolitan Opera. The
company aims to give -first-rate
Aside from this goal, Director
Julius Rudel makes distinctions
between the NYC and other more
established companies. The New
York City Opera provides talented
Americans with the opportunity

Emphasis is placed not only on
vocal ability, but also on youth-
fulness, individual vibrancy, physi-
cal attractiveness. and dramatic
Such characteristics were evi-
dent in varying proportions Sun-
day, when the company performed
Mascagni's '"Cavalleria Rusticana"
and Leoncavallo's "I Pagliacci."
Although certain scenes, such as
the prayer scene in "Cavalleria,"
tended to lose dramatic force and
musical cohesiveness between or-
chestra and ensemble, both operas
were given forceful, colorful and
certainly dramatic presentations.
These three qualities were pri-
marily what held "Cavalleria" to-
gether, for the opera tends to
become sluggish, , an inherent
weakness, due to plot structure.
The production would have been
more complete had the chorus
been more accurate in its vocal
entrances and if the principals
had had more volume to their
An exception to the latter was
Edna Mae George's Santuzza. Her
voice was very adequate to the
spatial demands of Hill, yet very
secure and well controlled.
Pagliacci Well Done
Of the two operas, "Pagliacci"
was perhaps better performed,
partly because there is much more
action and greater room for char-
acter portrayal than in "Caval-
leria." Dramatically outstanding

a service organization for business'

Expenditure IN THE SAB:

lays for 1966.
The report of the survey, pub-
lished in the Nov. 6 issue of "Busi-
ness Week," shows that, based on $
plans now on company books, $
$54.9 billion will be spent on new
plants and equipment next year. .
This figure, an eight per cent
rise over 1965, is actually just a
preliminary estimate based on
definite plans. Almost certainly,y>
the article said. the figure will be
revised upward as spending ac-
tually gets underway.
The revision could well be as
large as six per cent, thus making
a total rise in expenditures of
14 per cent, producing outlays of
The economists consulted, Prof..
Saul H. Hymans, of the economics
department, and Prof. Paul W.
McCracken of the school of busi-
ness administration, atfreed on the
basic outlook, but disagreed on
th- exact figures.
Hymans considered the . eight
per cent figure somewhat low in
light of the fact that the Secur-
