'1. C. Wier, of Rhetoric Department, is
Connoisseur of Ancient
Instriiments
"'Cellos get sleepy and out of train-
ing just as people do," declares Mr.
M. C. Wier. "They, must be used con-
tinually to be at their best." Although
Mr. Wier is a member of the rhetoric
faculty, his knowledge of the 'cello
and its history has brought him into
touch with many of the greatest 'cel-
lists of the day.
Ileshas now a collection of five
'cellos. One of them, his "favorite,"
is one of the oldest in existence. It
dates from 1585 and was made by
Desalo in Brescia, Italy. The instru-
ment, crude as it appears, is worth
about $2,500 and has an unlimited
sentimental value. In the collection'

value of $3,000.
Both of these instruments possess
a rare wealth of tone, and, although
they bear the marks of a period of
crude industrial art, they are posi-
tively unduplicated today. Their
sounding boardsare pitched in dif-
ferent keys, a secret now lost to the
world. One is a tenor and the other
a contralto. Modern instruments are
absolutely incomparable with them,
but "not because of their age," de-
clares Mr. Wier. "The rare old in-
struments were rare in the beginning."
Mr. Wier's "favorite" was originally
obtained from a boy who was "play-
ing wagon" with it in the street. The
price paid was $1.50. It cost Mr.
Wier $500, and then its sounding board
was badly smashed. It was skilfully
repaired and is now .one of the world's*
relics.
