"Intimate writing seems to me to
provide an outlet of expression for
those who do not wish to or an nol
write for the public, but receive plea-
sure fron placing their thoughts on
paper," states Mr. Harold C. Binkley,
Instructor in Rhetoric.
At Mr. 'Binkley's instigation and
under his tutelage, a course in inti-
mate writing was started this se-
mester. It embodies half reading amkd
half writing-the subjects being the
diary, the letter, the essay and,, the
biography. .
The course is promarily for sopho-
mores with a prerequisite of Rhetoric
31 or 32, and it is given in the hope
that the participants will learn the
pleasure of writing, if only for them-
selves, states M. Binkley. There are
about 40 in the class, anostly those who
did not care to take argumentation
but did want some further instructio2
in rhetoric.

As part of the experimental work,
the members of the class kept diaries
for six weeks. Asked for a compari-
son and generalization of them, Mr.
Binkley stated that "the diaries were
similar just as human beings are a-
like in that the walk on two feet, but
there the similarity ends."
The contents were, of course, kept
strictly confidential, but there were
inklings that for the most part, only
important events were included;
most everyone was in love, especial-
ly among the girls; engagemc\ts
were frequent-one girl, presumably
a sophomore, revealed that it was the,
third time since entering college;
thoughts rather than events were
characteristic. The suggestion for an
underlying motive had been "to in-
clude only that which would be in-
teresting twenty-five years from now."
It is expected that the course will
be given next year.

Training For Opera'
Depends On Teacher
Asserts Matzenauer
"Just as fine operatic training can t
be obtained in New York as in Eur-I
ope," said Madame Margaret Matz-
enauer, leading contralto of the Me-
tropolitan Opera Company, when in-1
terviewed after her appearance onr
the first of the May Festival pro-f
grams, Wednesday evening.
Madame Metzenauer made this em-1
phatic statement in spite of the fact
that she received her training in Eur-
ope, at the hands of her parents andt
such instructors as Georgine Neuen-£
dorf, Anthonia Mielke, and Franz Em-
"It all depends on the teacher,"
Madame Matzenauer continued, "If
you have a good teacher you can have
just as fine training in New York as
you can in Italy or any other Eur-
opean country."
In reply to the question as to how"
long it takes to reach the heights It
opera, Madame Matzenauer answer-
ed, "That depends on how hard you
work. You must work hard to 'get
there', as you say."
SFrederick Stock, who is cond ictor
of the Chicago Symphony Orc'/ stra,

viola player in the Chicago Symph-
ony Orchestra, then called "The The-
odore Thomas Orchestra."
