Now that the class treasurers
are organizing their annual drive

for what are the class dues ex-

To the Editor:
I am amazed to note that your
editorial on the deposing of Dean
Cabot has failed to evoke any let-
ter in defense of that leader in
medical pedagogy. There is cer-
tainly no man in the history of the
Medical school to whom students
ought to feel any greater personal
gratitude and devotion, for he has
sacrificed his chair as dean by his
efforts to combat an archaic edu-
cational system.

CESAR FRANCK: Quartet in D
Minor: by the London String Quar-
tet: Set No. 128.
This work, written just a few
months before his death, when
Franck was sixty-six, is quite the
most eloquent proof of the claim
so often made by his admirers as to
his superb architectonic power.
One has begun to question the
symphony from that angle and to
lose any sense of the inevitable re-
lation of the form there to the ma-
terial suspecting them both of be-
ing induced with calm factitious
But the quartet seems more per-
manently convincing. The archi-
tecture, less obvious and less
facilely apprehended, seems more
necessary to expression. The first
movement is unique in musical lit-
erature. It is really a union of two
separate pieces of music subtly
interpenetrating, commenting on,
and restraining one another very
effectively, but kept quite free of
confusion by Franck's perfect
structural manipulations. The us-
ual first movement form, the elas-
tic sonata structure, is incorporat-
ed into a simple lied form, the
theme of the lied being conceived
and employed as a generating
theme. The meditative, prayer-
like slow movement is conventional
as to form, but certainly Franck's
most profound piece of music. The
last movement is dramatic, com-
I prehensible (in the manner of the
elaborate structureofB eethoven's
last movement in the Ninth) only
by very subtle reference to the
meaning of preceding movements,
the themes of them being actually
quoted and hinted at.
The London String Quartet's!
performance is technically quite
superb. In the way of interpreta-
tion, they are a little unpreten-
tious 'being content with rather
broad depiction of the score with-
out deep analysis of underlying
feeling. The quartet seems to de-
mand . a rather peculiar blend of
tender acceptance and optimistic
aspiration for its ideal perform-
ance. If the London organization
lacks this feeling, they are at least
successful in the musicianly mat-
ters of the performance.
PUCCINI: La Boheme, an opera
in four acts: with Rosetta Pam-
panini and Luigi Marini and the
La Scala Chorus: the Milan Sym-
phony Orchestra conducted by
Molajoli: Operatic Series No. 5.
The phonograph is a little rigid
on Opera, especially on bad Opera.
Puccini's last act bears up quite
well; it is vivid and the actual
writing is inclusive enough to con-
tain and.suggest all the nuances of
the moods without the addition of
more superficial pictorial appeal,
which stage production adds. The
more spectacular second act, with
its street scenes, etc., suffers. The

phonograph exposes quite ruthless-
ly the actual poverty of the writ-
ing, its complete reliance on a viva-
cious, shrieking theatrical' produc-
But there is an advantage too in
phonograph presentation of Opera.
One learns to know voices, to learn
their precise quality, to catch their
tricks of expression: the sum of it
all being a more authentic insight
into the operatic art than one can
get from a 'single theatric experi-
ence. When the voices are as well
worth knowing as those of Rosetta
Pampanini, the Convent Garden
star, and Luigi Marini, there is
reason for owning this album.
These are both powerful singers
and their playing down to the
small proportion of the Mimi and
Rodolfo parts. They have both l
caught the natural fragility and
childlike single-mindedness of the
two young Bohemians and the
study of their technique in doing
so is a delight;
This present recording is gen-
uine Italian Opera, deriving its vi-}
tality from the Italian exhibition-
istic feelings. The La Scala Chorus,
