probable that Dr. Fosdick will join I
a church so steeped in fundamental G
dogma as to discourage the expres-

It is plain that the 1924 assembly w NO CLASSES

depends on the decision of the head
of New York's First Presbyterian
church, but on the face of: it he
would have nothing to gain and every-
thing to lose by joining because he
would place himself open to more
criticism than is now possible. Thej
general assembly should be com-
mended for its handling of a difficult
situation. It is now necessary that
the church as a\whole evince toler-
ation of a kind which will make pos-
sible a broader influence than is at)
present possible. '
It i becoming evident that in go-
ing before the voters of the United
States as a candidate for the presi-f
dency, Mr. Coolidge will not be able
to present himself as the nominee
of any single party. As yet Calvin
Coolidge has not been able to assert
his leadership over Congress; and"
this disaster which has overtaken the
supposed leader of the Republicans
is not due to any unusual wickedness
on the part of Congress. For as
long a time as anyone can remenher
Congress has been anxious to overrids
any President who did not first over-
ride it.
Mr. Coolidge's present position is
neither usual, nor extraordinary.
Cleveland, Roosevelt and Wilson made
the office of the chief executive sup-
reme during their periods of service.
On the other hand, in recent times,
Taft, Harding and Coolidge failed to
make their influence felt and con-.
tested with Congress to no avail. The
first three men were self-made, ris-
ing on their own merits; the second
three were products of , the Marty.
It seems curious that political parties
shculd humiliate men whom they have
succeeded in installing in office; eveb.
more curiously, it seems that. the
party will allow men who made them-{
selves to run it.
But 'perhaps the man most deserv-j
"ng of sympathy for being hard hit.
by the recent actions of Congress is
he who must act as an organ voice
in celebration of Republican harmony
Juring the coming elections. The Re-
publican keynote speech at the na-
tional convention in Cleveland will'
have to be a masterpiece of diplo-.

To the dismay and sorrow of count-
less thousands who were his admir-
ers, came the shocking news of thej
death of Victor Herbert. To the
many who had become acquainted
with the man and his work came the
feeling that again a man who was
contributing something toward the
betterment of humanity had been snat-
ched from our midst; and too, there
came the sympathy for a family which
had lost its leader.
Victor Herbert was the true leader!
of the popular music writers. It was
due to him more than to any one other
person that the taste for music of a
kind intermediate between the classics
and our insipid jazz was placed into
the possession of the American peo-'
lIe. It was due to him that a host
of semi-popular music composers,
some of whom have given to posterity.
small bits of musical charm, have set
themselves to work for something
other than a pecuniary return. They
have received a certain amount of in-
spiration and encouragement in watch-
ing the musician Victor Herbert, and
the man Victor Herbert. They have
seen what could be done, even though
one does not measure up to a Beeth-
oven or a Mozart, and they have pro-
fited. They have attempted the task,
and have worked and won.
Although the man has departed, he
leaves to us many works by which
he will be remiembered.. Like all men
of attainment, lie is one with whom
'death only brings a change, not an
end. Many of his compositions will
live for at least several generations,
and it is possible that not a few will
survive the storm many more. The
type of music which he has given
to the world is for the most part of
a desirable kind; it is of a nature that
appeals to both the musically learned
and the laity, for it is easily under- .
stood and appreciated. Victor Her-
bert passes in body only.

PAUL WIIIThEIAN, a review by Ro-
bert Hende'son.
-Jazz is a sublimated America; it is
America: an evolution of the can-can
and Alexander's Rag-Time Band, in-'
sinuating, undulating, fast to cyclon-
ic, tremendous, and worst of all, out-!
rageous. To say that you dislikedj
[Paul Whiteman's concert would be
[ridiculous, placing you in the light
of an embarrassed snob; the vital
fact is that it was impossible to re-
sist his program with its subtle, com-
plicated rythms, its maddening sen-
suousness, and its barbaric, sophistic-I
ated throb. Jazz, as Paul Whiteman
plays it, is not only popular; it re-
presents the coming symphony, the in-
evitable American music of the future.
The first three numbers of the con-
cert were examples of the clang-and-
brash syncopation of a dozen years
ago, the kind of jazz that is still be-
ing exlsloited without exception on
the Keith vaudeville circuits. As mu-
sic they were terrifically noisy and
chaotic and horrble, but in the final
analysis it is this same mad clatter
that brings down the house, setting
it yelling and shrieking.
The remainder of the program, how-
ever, turned to the climax of the ex-
periment, and at many points verred
into exceptionally beautiful harmon-
ies. From such purely popular num-
bers as "Limehouse Blues" and "JLn-
I ger Awhile" to the adaptations of
"Chansonette" and "The Volga Boat
Song" there was a consistent skill
of technical workmanship. The idea
that such jazz is obvious and simple
was thoroughly exploded. Whatever
you may think of Paul Whiteman's
musicians, you must admit that they
possess the highest technical skill in
scoring and, even to a greater de-
gree, in the dominant rhythm of
syncopation; as players they are
worthy of a symphony orchestra.
The final numbers included Victor
Herbert's "Suite of Serenades" and
George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in
Blue." The Victor Herbert piecesI
carried the style of the modern Ameri-
can orchestra with its predominance
of muted brasses, saxophones, and
the stacatto banjo to an even more
complicated field, now entirely weaned
from the necessity of a constant fox-
trot tempo for the dance floor. One
by one all the conventional effects
of the conventional, twisted sounds
of a jazz band were introduced with
