A COMMUNICATION

To the Editor:
A day or two ago, I observed in
your interesting publication some
reference to another liquor scandal,
this time at the University of Min-
nesota. The first intention, it ap-
pears, was to deprive of their di-
plomas those delinquents who were
members of the graduating class,
but this didn't meet with the ap-

proval of certain members of the
Minnesota legislature, who thought
getting drunk, particularly on the
part of students, "wasn't really such
an objectionable diversion." One
senator, (that is, of course, a "state
senator," and we know what that
means in some cases), was quite
vehement about the matter. It
would stigmatize these "stewdents"
all the rest of their lives-not the
breaking of the law, nor the get-
ting drunk-but the failure to get
their diplomas at the same time as
their decent, law-abiding classmen.
I regret that I neglected to make a
note of the name of this (state)
senator, but it had a certain exotic
flavor, as if he had qualified for
citizenship, and thereby for elec-
tion, at as recent a date as these
qualifications could legally be es-
tablished.
This, then, must be the type of
citizen and patriot that does not
believe in penalizing the adolescent
nitwit, who thinks he is suffering
from an inferiority complex if he
does not imitate all the vices of
all the men he ever heard of. He
isn't so keen, however, in emulat-
ing their virtues, or in transcending
their worthy achievements. Youths
between the ages of 17 and 21 have
about as mtuch use for beer and
whisky as a baby has for redpep-
per, and enjoy it just about the
same. These half-baked juveniles,
freed at last from their mothers'
apron-string, wish to become so-
phisticated, and sophisticated quick.
The shortest road to manhood, in
their infantile understandings
seerns to be via cigarettes and booze,r
so they promptly seize upon these

ROLLS REPORTER'S NOOK
In order to stimulate the a-
lertness of the average campu-
site, the Rolls Pherret is now
engaged in looking up odd
things about the campus. As
often as possible we will print
them in the column and you
can go out and look for them,
but it would be a great feather
in your cap to beat the Famous
Pherret at his job and discover
some of these obscure facts
yourself and send them in be-
fore he does. Not only that, but
it would make life a lot easier
for the rest of the staff both by
taking some of the Pherret's
conceit away, and by filling up
the ever-present blank space.
The first of this series of little-
known facts may not be news to
some of you, but it was to me and
the staff in general so we'll print
it and you don't have to bother
about it if you don't want to.....
Honest you don't. There are no
strings attached to any of Baxter's
propositions. You can take them or
leave them as you will.
Anyway, there is a good sized
sign on campus that says MA-
SON HALL. It is in a conspicu-
ous outdoor place, but I'll bet
not more than half of you can
even make a good guess as to
where it is.

Columbia is issuing this most re-
cent Stravinsky composition only
three months after its first New
1York performance and in the very
authentic reading of the composer
himself: facts which will establish
the album's interest automatically.
The album will be a disappoint-
ment to those for whom Stravinsky
means essentially "Le Sacre Du
Printemps"; for here the composer
is not vigorously attuned to his age
but rather indulging his remark-
able eclectic talent to produce an
exciting and very "listenable" me-
lange of several styles. Paul Rosen-
feld's remarks from the New Re-
public indicates both the nature
and the effect of the music with
some precision: "This material has
no procreancy, concocted as it is
of jazz, Bach, Viennese Waltzes, and
Schumanniana. The clever piece
fulfills a social function and pre-
tends to nothing more. .It is a di-
vertissement, the successful result
of a desire to combine whimsicality
of spirit and sparkle of the old bril-
liant salon music with the scintill-
ance of jazz: an invocation to gay-
ety, a grandiose parlor ornament
.Melodies of A Schumann-
like delicacy speed along among
light sonorities; the orchestration
being almost that of chamber-mus-
ie. One feels oneself among the
lusters and decolletes of an early
Victorian drawing-room, savoring
again its charm and elegance of
pre-bourgeois manners.....It is one
the happiest of his eclectic compo-
sitions, entertaining and agree-
able."
The only possible correction to
Rosenfeld's remarks that I think of
is that he has soewhat minimised
the satiric element in it. The scn-
tillance and light-heartedness is
frequently interrupted by savagery
reminiscent of the old strident and
forceful Stravinsky. The Viennese
tunes are presented in such an
eccentric context that Stravinsky's
reminiscence seems to be something
of a deliberate caricature (very
similar in this to Ravel's apotheosis
of the waltz in his "La Valse").
However, Rosenfeld' is right in
emphasizing the second-rateness of
the music. It is content to be tri-
vial in a very delightful way and is
a product of that side of Stravin-
sky's makeup which sba.yeneff-s
has called "a genius for musical
business."
Stravinsky himself plays t h e
piano as neatly and as sparklingly
as he wrote for it and the presenta-
tion of his composition seems about
ideal.
. WAGNER THE HUSBAND I
WAGNER: Siegfried Idyll: played
by Dr. Karl Muck and the Berlin
State Opera Orchestra: On Victor
Records 7381-7382.
This composition, in which Wag-
ner took an interlude from his cos-
mic pretentions to express a domes-
tic devotion to his wife and son
(written as a Christmas present to
her and performed early Christmas
morning while Cosima slept on the
staircase to her bedroom) is on of
the happiest of his purely orches-
tral compositions. All the thema-
tic material comes from various
portions of his Nibelungen music
but it is all presented with refer-I
ence to the central emotion-which
is a very lovely, quite honestly sen-
timental, probably very German
tenderness.
Karl Muck, the old Boston sym-
phony conductor and one of the
leading Bayreuth directors, gives

a very beautiful reading of it.
Muck's achievement is to give the
composition in a long line, splend-
idly sustained and sensitively mod-
u a t d. A reasonable restraint
seems to characterize all of Muck's
Wagnerian readings and is un-,
doubtedly the most acceptable way
of making Wagner acceptable just
at present. These two records have
been chosen as the Victor Record-
of-the Month.
JANE COWL
Jane Cowl comes to Detroit next
week in the two plays with which
she has begun the establishment
of a permanent Cowl repertory.
Just so popular is Miss Cowl. The
first half of the week she will be
seen in "Art and Mrs. Bottle," an
English comedy-expose of the ri-
diculousness of the very "arty"
by Benn Levy, author of "Mrs.
Moonlight" and adapter of Topaze."

admirably illustrates the manner
in which extreme utility can be
