SENATORS AND PARITY.
The hard-won London naval
treaty is at last before that superb-
ly nationali'stic/ body, the United
States Senate. Secretary of State
Stimson at the head of his fellow

Stimson constantly reflects the ex-
treme difficulty with which any
sort of an agreement was reached.
He admits that our delegation had
to overlook the qutestion of naval
bases when considering Anglo-
American parity. He admits that
it also had to overlook the compar-
ative size of merchant marines, as
well as that of cruiser gun size. In
order to come home with a treaty
at all, Secretary Stimson and his
naval experts had to agree that a
squadron of United States cruisers
mounting 6-inch guns, other things
being equal, could fight a draw
battle with a British squadron of
equal tonnage mounting 8-inch
guns. The Senate will decide be-
fore ratifying whether essential
parity is guaranteed us despite
sacrifices which our delegation
made, or whether, perhaps, the
mere fact of the treaty's existence,
is worth these sacrifices.
There are, of course, certain
psychological advantages to follow
prompt ratification. The United
States would regain a measure of
diplomatic grace in the eyes of the
Old World; we would repair to:
some extent the resentment arous-
ed by our high-hat policy of splen-
did isolation. We would help lay
strong foundations for the perpet-
uation of "naval building holidays,"
and we would be doing our bit toj
keep alive the waning enthusiasm
for 'disarmament.
History proves, however, that
these intangible considerations
weigh little with our Senate, whichk
is hard-headed and close-fisted to
the last ditch in international af-
fairs. Our senators vote not for
ideals but for cold, hard things like I
parity. If actual parity with GreatI
Britain is provided by the London!
treaty, they will probably ratify it.
If not-and they look sharply into
things of this nature, we can trust 1
them not to ratify simply because
Secretary Stimson worked hard to!
bring some sort of a treaty home
from London, or because the ad-
ministration needs an accomplish-
ment "to view with pride" for fall
election purposes.

A REVIEW

We are pleased to announce to the public, as well as
to our many friends that Mr. Albert Bovenkamp, consid-
ered one of Ann Arbor's best chefs, is now with us.
Mr.i Bovenkamp will be glad to meet any of his many
friends. He will serve a special $1.00 Dinner Sunday
from 11 a. m. to 8 p. m.

Pictorially, Ruggiero Ricci was quite as exciting as everyone expectedI
him to be. A small study in black and white, his slight body charged I
with energy and swaying with impatient zest, making music by the
grace of God one wanted to feel but obviously with his fleet fingers
nonchalantly tuning his violin in his rests, at all times in perfect
poise-a few feet from him Frederick Stock, to most of us symbolic of
a stern, grave musical intelligence, following the boy's music eagerly'
and carefully-behind him two or three score of grown men, their
faces mingling awe, admiration, despair and joy. The beautiful picture
alone probably would have stirred the ejaculatory incoherence that was
the audience leaving Hill Auditorium yesterday afternoon.
But musically, Ricci was much more exciting than everyone expected
him to be. The sheer accuracy of his musical intuitions-as well as
the phenomenal technique that translated them--should have squelched
forever, as it did mine, any superciliousness, the 'oh yes, a prodigy, a
boy who plays violin well' attitude.'
There was more than lovely, charming child animation in Ricci's
temperament. It had burning vitality and real feeling. Beethoven's
music-with intentions all pretty clearly defined and little introversion-
proved an unexpectedly fine vehicle for the child. Ricci, not old enough
to be a virtuoso in the sense of the supreme trickster, or to realize how
widely exhibitionism is accepted, was at all times genuine in feeling.
One couldn't credit him with taste (the word has a connotation of
acquiring with years(. Musical divinations, probably inexplicable, were
prompting technique. He modelled a melody not with the self-conscious-
ness of a man like Zimbalist intellectually comprehending its quality,
but with a feeling for its inevitable form (the rondo theme in the last,!
rmovement for example). His phrasing had spontaneity and genuineness;
he attained precision without insisting on it with too studied emphasis
like ai older violinist undoubtedly would. All his nuances and inflections
were sensitive rather than mechanical. In the cadenzas he was more
conscious of his own playing, hence slightly less satisfactory; but bril-
liance of his technique carried him through, as it does so many. His
slow movement-because of the sweetness rather than the depth in
his tone-was rather more lyrical than contemplative; which is descrip-
tion rather than criticism.
All in all, the wunderkind:s blazing intuitions proved more exciting
than Zimbalist's complacency and pedantry in the Brahms concerto
last year. Zimbalist had taste. Some five thousand people, I think,
think Ricci has genius.
The children's chorus, as usual, proved enjoyable. They consistently
fail to get any enthusiasm or vitality into tleir attacks; but they are
accurate always and precise. Miss Higbee has definitely perfected the
intonation this year, probably at the expense of some of the eagerness
that proves so attractive. The Mozart Cradle Song was the best of
the shorter numbers. Miss Strong's Symphony of Song proved a capable,
humorous setting of some of A. A. Milne's whimsy from When*We Very
Young. Miss Strong's orchestration seemed definitely more interesting
than her choral writing which was conventional.
The Chicago Orchestra, diminished, gave a fine rendering of the
fourth Brandenberg Concerto. Stock's Bach (though Delamarter con-
ducted, one can safely assume it was Stock's Bach) is quite more pure
than Stowkowski's. There is ┬░no rhythmic surging, no striving for
emotional overtones. Stock's reverence. I think, pleases less people
than Stowkowski's virtuosity; but very probably the minority includes
all the important people. Mendelssohn's concertino for flute was played
precisely who unmistakably were taking a malicious delight in the
naivete.

delegates is busy explaining to
Senator Borah's committee on for-
eign relations why the Senate
should ratify. The Secretary is of
course anxious that the ratification
should be accomplished; it would
lend prestige to his stewardship of
the State portfolio, and above all it
would lend the color of accom-
plishment to the administration of
his friend, President Hoover. As
regards accomplishments, t h e
Hoover administration is to date
rather,-colorless.
The burden of Secretary Stim-
son's argument is that the London
treaty finally assures the United
States of naval parity with Great
Britain. He is wise in pressing that
point. If he can establish it to the
satisfaction of 64 senators, it will
constitute a well-nigh overwhelm-
ingly argument in favor of ratifi-
cation. Should he perchance fail
to establish it, the long-heralded
offspring of his London labors will
certainly pass to that cheerless
Senatorial limbo where the League
of Nations now reposes.
]Except for this alleged parity
with Great Britain there is no con-
crete achievement of the treaty on
which Secretary Stimson can rea-
sonably base a demand for ratifi-.
cation. The London deliberations
failed to provide the reductions in
total naval armament and the con-
sequent savings that the Rapidan
agreement foreshadowed. They
failed to their intended compre-
hensionsiveness when France and
Italy went home without signing
anything. They eased up on the

and Japan to the annoyance of our
