Inlander has been our black sheep,
we have laughed in its very face,
and have thumbed our noses be-
hind its back.
However, the recent efforts of Mr.
Courlander to cast aside by-gones
and to start afresh with new in-
spiration and new goal in mind'
should attract our attention. We
hope him the best of accomplish-,
ment. It is certain that the in-
definiteness of purpose of the past
is a weakness. Probably the staff
cannot start a critical journal to
begin with, nor for some time es-
tablish a definite critical outlook,
but this should be its goal. The end
will no doubt be accomplished un-I
der the new organization of the!
staff into special departments. The'
fact that the staff will look at the
Inlander as a magazine and notj
merely as a reward for students
who write good themes will in-I
crease, we believe, the vitality of
the organ. We are placing our pre-
judices on the shelf, to wait for the

was the child prodigy of Hubay's
"master class". At eleven years of
age, he was one of the first violins
in the Budapest Grand Opera Or-
chestra. All the other menbers
were prize winners and proved their
worth as solo artists.
At the outbieak of the revolu-
tion in Hungary and the period of
communism in Budapest which be-
'gan in 1919, Lener and his three as-
sociates in the Grand Opera Or-
chestra with characteristic polit-
ical indifference retired to a remote
Hungarian village and devoted
their energies to chamber music.
