year oldr bachelor, who is pastor of

the leader in the movement to remove1
Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick from the
pulpit of the First Presbyterian'
church, New York city, for alleged
heresy, was elected moderator at this
afternoon's session of the 136th gen-
eral assembly of the Presbyterian
church in the United States of Amer-
Mr. McCartney vas elected on the
first ballot over Dr. Harold R. Berg-
man, a professor at Princeton Theo-
logical seminary, who styled himself
neither a fundamentalist nor modern-
ist, but a constitutionalist.
Eighteen votes was the margin of
the Philadelphian's victory, the vote
being McCartney 464, Bergman 446.
The issue of fundamentalism was
sharply drawn. William Jennings
Bryan, a vigorous leader among the
fundamentalists, placed Dr. McCart-
ney's name in nomination. Dr., Bryan,

On Program

ly R. B. Renders on
It is interestin'g and highly signifi-
cant that a major portion of the pres-
ent May Festival is being devoted to
modern, even hyper-modern music.,
Such a policy of premieres and first
performances must not only result in
added recognition from outside sourc-
es, but will contribute a new zest to
the recurring numbers.
It is necessary, of course, to season'
contemporary compositions with the
recognized classics, but: the inter-
mingling produces a decidedly satis-
factory synthesis of the best in all
musical ages. The point is that mod-
ern harmony represents the zeething
pulsing current of our era, and an or-
ganization smuggly contended only
with the conventional forms lies in a
state of complacent coma that very
surely and justly will spell its par-
ticular doom.
The program last evning stands as
an admirable justification of the dir-
ector's new policy. The opening num-
ber, John Alden Carpenter's "A Pil-
grim's Vision", represented an unusu-
ally dignified and serious phase of the
composer's style, indirect contrast
to his flippant.,.Jazzical "Krazy Cat."
It was admirably executed and should
stand among the more worthy sym-
phonic poems in modern American
Mme. Claire Dux, the first soloist of
the concert, was a striking example of
tie marked contrast between the
'rench cocotte and the buxom German
frau in Miss, or Mrs. Krueger. The for-!
mer is slender, good looking, and im-
hued with a superabundance of Gallic
verve. She has at her command a bag j
of a dozen or more impudent, perfect-
obvious and very charming stager
tricks which snatch and hold you from
the moment she hurries onto the plat-
form until she gives an awkard, fascin-
ating bow and hurries away. As much
Ias you may deny it. she has a vibrant

"Pastorale d'Ete" by Honegger was
interesting, first because it comes,
from a member of the famous "Groupe
de Six", and also because it is boldly
modern. Its theme, as the title sug-
gests, is strangely primitive and
strangely compelling in its apparent
simplicity. The work is suggestive
of Edmund Dulac's Irish interludes,j
and similarly appealing in its rugged
Miss Lent, as everyone was ready to
believe, is unquestionably a genius.
The Bruch Concerto, to begin with, is
a very beautiful, compelling com-
position-more than can be claimed,
for instance, of the Mendelssohn Con-
certo-offering adequate opportunities
for the customary technical display I
without marring the underlying melo-!
dic theme, a Very essential element to
our untutored appreciation.
The pivot of the entire concert,
"Seadrift" by Delius founded on Walt'
Whitman, merits the sincerest en-
thusiasm. The music is peculiarly un-
dulating, haunting in its careful tonal

Druids Receive
18 Junior Lis
Appearing at the sacred Druid
grove at dusk last night 18 junior liter-
ary students were instru'cted in the
secrets of the ancient bards of the
forest by men who had already
proved their worth as members of
that group.
Clad in flowing robes of white and
lighting the difficult and dangerous
way to the Druid abode with gleam-
ing pine torches, the members of the
order conducted their charges into
safety. Instruction in the ways of the
men of the forest was given the A-
wenydds previously to the march to
the sacred chamber and was. contin-
ued after the arrivalrthere so that
none should fail to grasp the funda-
mentals of the ancient order.'
The men who were elected to the
honorary senior literary society this
year are: David Bramble, John
Bromley, C D. Crawford, Thomas
Fiske, William Giles, E. N,. Hartwick,
Wendell Herrick, Edward Higgins,
Cass Hough, Robert Hummer, Charles
Livingstone, Albert Peck, Robert Ram-
say, Lyman Savage, J. W. Shenefield,'

In one of the closest a.nc most hot-
ly contested senior literary mock el-
ections which has been held in years,
the new third 'party which made its
appearance in the race two days ago
secured the majority representation
in the Lower Crypt of West hall where
the paper mache busts of the success-
ful candidates will be placed.
In an interview with the heretofore
unknown leader of this successful par-
ty, Ralph Byers, it was stated thpt the'
secret, but not underhanded, work of
the party leaders had made it possi-
ble to score such a sweeping victory.
Freida Deikoff backed by both of the
two traditional parties was unan-
imously elected to the position of the
best girl student, after the third par-
ty had withdrawn the name of Harry
Hoey as a candidate for this position.
Art Graves won clear cut victory
over Julian Mack ii the race for the
niche in the Lower Crypt for the best
man student. Wal. Scherer had no
oppositior for the'position of the most
bashful man, another evidence of the
u oreseen power of the third party..
The honor of being the biggest grind
went to James Rice, with 'Lawrence
Dooge trailing behind. Mary Hays
won the furious race for the position
of the best athlete by defeating Ed
Stark. Dorothy Weimer was forced

Appropriations .for, two banging

literary building as a memorial to
the literary class of 1924, were passed
at the business meeting of the senior
literary class which preceded the
mock- election yesterday afternoon.
Julian Mack, chairman of the class
memorial committee, in making his re.
port stated that the exact style and
cost of the lamps had not been ascer-
tained by Prof. John F. Shepard, sup-f
I ervisor of building plans, but that the
cost will be in the neighborohod of
$1500.. The class voted to deposit this
amount with the treasure of the Uni-.

will doubtless rest' in the playing of
Alberto Salvi, called the greatest liv-
ing harpist. The harp is seldom used
in solo work and considerable skill is
required to make the numbers inter-
esting. The tone quality of the in-
strument- is peculiarly appealing, and
under the touch of a skilled per-
former ought to be a gr"at technical
as well as melodic at action. Mr.
