A certain frame of mind about
Sibelius precipitated by the popu-
Arity of his minor works-the ubi-
uitous "Finlandia" and the "Vasc
Triste" etc.- has obscured the sig-
nificant fact that he is the only
contemporary composer w r i t i n g
convincingly in the grand style and
in the grand tradition. Perhap
since Brahms, the history of musi
might be thought of as one of idio-
matic expansion. And yet thi
t e c h n i c a 11 y ultra-sophisticate
music is relatively sterile and seem
to have now left an impasse in the
musical scene. The importance o
Sibelius is that his achievement a
least proves the possibility of re
turning to the "gold standard" o:
musical art-since nearly all hi
work in the symphony falls into th
German tradition .(he received hi
musical education in Berlin). Yet
despite the sobriety and conven
tionality of his idiom, he is abl
to fully and forcefully convey hi
own original genius.
Basic in that genius is the surg

Almost literally it conveys th
sweep of great winds across deso
late plains, the loneliness and ter
ror of long nights, and the sombr
melancholy induced by this crue
struggle for existence.
These aspects of his racial inher
itance had forced Sibelius int
writing some crude, self-consciou
nationalistic music with an attemp
at too literal realism. But the rigi
formal discipline of the classic sym
phony seems to have liberated h
imagination from these essenti

SNOOPING IN GOVERNMENT
It seems too bad that a governing
body so perplexed with considera-
tions of a genuinely serious nature
and so troubled by problems which
vitally concern the existence of the
nation, should periodically be dis-
utrbed by the accusations of a com-
mittee whose only claim to exist-
ence is a concession made at a time
when it was necessary because o1

Yet this is exactly what has hap-
pened to the Senate and this tim
under the leadership of their brav
Sir Galahad chairman; the Cam-
paign Funds committee has chosen
as the target for their slanderous
accusations the executive director
of the Republican National com-
mittee, R o b e r t H. Lucas. The
charges are concerned with the
fight to defeat radical Senator Nor
ris of Nebraska. And now, with th
election over and Norris still secur
in his position in the upper house
of the United States government
the Campaign Funds 'committee
must continue to hunt up skeletons
in the closet and to bring before
the nation charges against the men
who are responsible for the govern
ment and to whom the p u b lic
should look for their example in
this work.
Every Senator and every man in
national offices of any kind ha:
enough responsibility and enough
work to occupy his entire capacity
without being continually harassed
by the charges of Senator Nye, bet-
ter known as "Snoopy," and hi
inane committee. No man can give
his best efforts to the nation whe.
he must be constantly refuting an

dishonesty and incorrect or irregu
lar conduct long before he has
shouldered the responsibility o

Why is it necessary that a com
mittee whose only object is contin

Since the beginning of time, cooking has
been a family affair-each family for itself; a
potful at a time. But the past decade has seen
a great change. The old family cooking pot
has gone the way of the old oaken bucket.
And in its place is a new American phenoin-
enon: the twelve-billion-dollar pot.
In this pot, 55,000 factories are stewing and
brewing and preparing most of your food...
and yours .. and yours-an annual produc-
tion of almost twelve billions of dollars.
These 55,000 plants represent America's
food industry. They are scattered throughout
the nation. They make everything from canned
