Rodzinski Is Living Example
Of Theory Of Predestined Life

Artur Rodzinski, conductor of the
Cleveland Orchestra which will give a
Choral Union concert Thursday
March 28, in Hill Auditorium, is a
living example of the theory that pre-

In response to his father's wish he
studied law instead of music. But al-
though it was law by day, it was
music by night for the young Rodzin-

where Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and
Brahms lived the major part of their

Artur Rodzinski is a Pole. notwith-
standing his cosmopolitan record.
Born in Dalmatia, educated in Aus-
tria, most successful as a musician
in the United States, of which he is a
citizen, he represents that type which
contributes to American life the finej
flavor of old world culture with keen'
sensibility for the arts.
During the latter part of his youth
Mr. Rodzinski was allowed to study
music. Scarcely out of school, he
joined the Austrian army and served
on the Russian front until seriously
wounded and invalided home. At
making Lwow in Poland his music
began with modest choral work.
Then came the opportunity to try
conducting at the Lwow Opera. Per-
formances of "Ernani," "Carmen,"
and difficult Polish work, "Eros and
Psyche," brought the young maestro
to the attention of Warsaw. He was
summoned and engaged to conduct
this Polish opera there. His success
earned him a position there.
Comes To America
After five years in Warsaw, con-
ducting not only opera but also the
Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra in
concerts, came the fatefill day when
after a performance of "The Master-
singer of Nuremberg," a "tall blonde
man" appeared in his dressing room
to congratulate him on the perform-

Italian- Abyssinian
Clash Is Topic Of
Ehrmann' s Speech
A desire for the consolidation of
the Italian colonies separated by
Abyssinian territory and for economic
concessions in the region was termed
the cause of the Italian-Abyssinian
clash by Prof. Howard Ehrmann of
the history department, who spoke
before the Graduate Club at a lunch
eon meeting held yesterday at the
"The root of the trouble goes back
to the '80's," Professor Ehrmann said,
"when Italy began her policy of try-
ing to establish a protectorate over
Abyssinia in order to consolidate her
colonies of Eritrea and Italian Soma-r
liland." He then traced the Italian
policy in the African problem, saying
that she had temporarily gained her
end in a treaty with the Sultan.
Although this protectorate was re-
pudiated in a few years, Italy did not
cease her attempts, he said, and
eventually went so far as to make a
three-power pact with England and
France providing for the partition of
Abyssinia. "However, they were un-
able to accomplish this," he contin-
ued, "and although Italy did her best
to obtain the territory during the
peace conference of 1919 in Paris,
she has been unsuccessful so far."
According to Professor Ehrmann,
the question can be settled only if
Abysinnia agrees to rectify the boun-
daries of the Italian colonies and to
grant her other economic concessions.
All those who expect to usher for
the Junior Girls Play must meet
with Sue Thomas, chairman of
ushers, at 3 p.m. today in the
