Horn Players Aim for Natural Sound

, U


"The natural horn sound is the
purest type of 'F' horn sound you
will hear; it is the velvety sound
that horn-players try to emulate,"
said Prof. Louis J. Stout of the
music school.
Prof. Stout, a French horn in-
structor, spoke yesterday after-
noon to a group at Lane hall on
the history of the French horn.
Tracing the development of the
horn from its earliest origins to
the modern French horn, Prof.
Stout played the various instru-
ments that marked each stage of
its progress.,
A seashell, a 12 foot long natur-
al horn, a hunting horn, and a
Award Posts
To 'U' Students
Three University students have
won the Constitutional Convention
Internships in state-wide compe-
tition. They are: Marc Blucher,
'62, Ira Jaffe, '64L, and Richard
Reiman, '63L.
The program, sponsored by the
Michigan Citizenship Clearing
House, will provide each with a
two-week period serving as per-
sonal aide to one of the committee
chairmen at the Convention.
Blucher will serve with the Leg-
islative Organization Committee.

Committee; and Reiman with the

modern French horn were all dem-
onstrated as part of this succes-
sive series.
Animal Horns
"Animal's horns were the pre-
decessors of the French horn,"
Prof. Stout reported. "The horns
of rams, steers and even elephant
tusks were used as instruments
chiefly for the purpose of signal-
In the Jewish religion, the ram's
horn is still used in certain cere-
monies for special feasts and holi-
days. "This instrument, called a
shofar, is passed from generation
to generation and is almost im-
possible to acquire," Prof. Stout
"Hornmakers, in an effort to
improve upon the quality of the
instrument tried various mater-
ials in its construction. Wood,
clay, and glass were all tried, but
the most successful material found
for this use was metal," he said.
Natural Sound
It was a straight metal horn
that produced the natural sound
that horn players try to produce
"The 12-foot horn that best
produced this sound was too cum-
bersome to be put to practical use,
so it was necessary to 'wrap it
up' in a coiled tube to facilitate
movement," Prof. Stout stated.
This gave rise to the hunting
horn of the 17th and 18th centur-
ies. "Although it was still used as
a signal, the horn had become
more refined and it was in this

The preliminary prospectus for,
students interested in the Univer-
sity's junior year abroad programi
at the University of Aix-Marseille3
is now available.
The prospectus contains infor-
mation on the location, program,
living arrangements, transporta-
tion, expenses, academic credit,
admission and application for thei
program beginning next fall. ;
It also announces that the pro-;
gram's first resident faculty di-
rector will be Prof. Jean Carduner
of. the French department. Prof.
Carduner will act as administra-
tive and academic advisor while
in residence in Aix.
The program for approximately
40 honors calibre students, will of-
fer courses in such fields as his-
tory, literature, philosophy, his-
tory of art and geography. Math-
ematics and science courses will
be offered at the university's
branch in nearby Marseille.
It is estimated that the expenses
including trans-Atlantic transpor-
taticn will not be more than $1,-
650 for in-state students and $2,-
100 for out-of-state students. Per-
sonal expenses and books are not
included in this estimate.
Applications for interested stu-
dents who will have junior stand-
ing with an overall "B" or "B-
plus" average will be available in
the counseling offices sometime in
the middle of January.

One major function of a Unit-
ed Nations University is to col-
lect and disseminate information
which would be useful in working
towards economic and social prog-
ress, J. David Singer, of the Men-
tal Health Research Institute, said
Tuesday night.
He spoke at the second seminar
in a series of nineteen, entitled,
"The Concept of a United Nations
University." The seminars are
sponsored by the department of
studies on the United Nations, a
part of Americans Committed to
World Responsibility.
Contributions towards peace,
Singer continued, would be a by-
product of and the second major
function of the activities of a
United Nations University.
There would be a strong "like-
lihood of good results from intel-
lectual inbreeding" which would
tend to occur at a university with
an international atmosphere. How-
ever, certain variables, such as en-
vironment, could have a profound
effect on the success of intercul-
tural contact, Singer stressed.
Ayer To Present
Philosophy Talk
Prof. A. J. Ayer, Wykeham pro-
fessor of logic at Oxford, will pre-
sent a philosophy lecture on "The
Concept of a Person" at 4:15 p.m.
today in Aud. C.

Singer Says UN University
To Aim for Social Progress

In considering the relation of
a United Nations University to
the UN, it was suggested that the
university be set up as a separate
specialized agency rather than as
part of already existing bodies.
The teaching of religion from a
theological point of view or "on
the basis of rational inquiry was
also discussed.
Singer said he definitely was in
favor of starting a United Nations
University; however, he emphasiz-
ed that one should not expect it
to be able to change the world.
Although many difficulties must
be met before such an idea be-
comes a reality, and many people
must be convinced that the uni-
versity would be a feasible, bene-
ficial organization, it will not be

... velvety sound
form that the horn was first in-
troduced into the orchestra," he
"Wrapping the horn in a tight
circle preserved the natural sound
but added a darker tone to the
instrument that blends well with
the orchestra."
This early form of the horn did
not facilitate key change except
by changing the slides on the in-
strument. Prof. Stout hypothesiz-
ed that the idea for using a hand-
muting technique to change keys
first originated when someone
threw an object into the bell of
a horn that a musician was play-
ing in an orchestra.
