Eight Miles
From Madrid .. .
SPANISH GOVERNMENT troops
stormed into the hills surround-
ing Madrid Monday to capture strategic posi-
tions, particularly Cerro de Los Angeles, the geo-
graphic center of the nation. Eight miles from
his goal Franco found himself repulsed after
months of battering away, The victory becomes
a significant augury of the future of Spain's
struggle for a non-fascist government.
Based on the supposition that certain fac-
tors operate favorably the victory for Spain's
loyalist army seems assured.
The largest single factor on the Spanish scene
which can affect the nation and Europe itself,
is a sincere and successful blockade of the Iber-
ian peninsula. The blockade will necessarily
have to be a voluntary one to exclude arms, men,
and materials which might become useful in war.
For the government this plan may work hard-.
ship, but for the rebels it will work irreparable
damage.
The government, confronted by such a situa-
tion, could withstand the strainon its resources
more ably than the fascists. In the first place
there is the decided advantage of having res-
olute men to defend Spain from fascist reac-
tion.
Galicians of northern Spain, traditional en-
emies of Madrid, and Catalonians, constant ad-
vocates of separation from the central govern-
ment, are now throwing well trained and dis-
ciplined reserves into the fight to save-Madrid.
Unity, if it has ever existed in any land for any
cause, is certainly a working reality in Spatn
against fascism.
The first neutral official observations in the
loyalist controlled regions were published Fri-

day by the New York Times indicating clearly the
favorable conditions which prevail. The report
of the special League of Nations commission says,
"The state of health is satisfactory and appears
to have been affected neither by the disturb-
ances that have occurred nor by the accompany-
ing movement of the population."
Other highly encouraging features of the doc-
ument are the citations of no existing serious
food shortage and the high morale of the Span-
ish masses. It is also a striking testimony of
the unpopularity of the fascist cause that the
commission reports 1,000,000 persons have fled
from Franco's cruelty (remember the Burgos
massacre) into the regions under the control of
the Madrid-Valencia government.
Fortunately the scene for the rebel army offi-
cers is not so well lighted. Franco, alternately
promising democracy and dictatorship in the
course of the war and on each new arrival of
fr !±o- om, ~l t~n t'.(17tiR." nmi a ti.-

to push its offensive forces into the fight while
Franco must divide his maneuvers. He resumed
for instance, an unsuccessful attack on Malaga
on the Mediterranean front at the time the
loyalists took Cerro de Los Angeles.
Fascist assistance particularly from Hitler in
the very near future will probably be largely re-
duced. The Berlin Bully as The Nation names
Hitler must do so on three accounts: The pos-
sibility that the League may realize his colonial
aspirations; also as a result of the tacitly worded
rebuke which Anthony Eden handed to Germany
this week; and the inescapable realization that
five months of intervention in Spain have proved
fruitless and extremely expensive.
With a strictly enforced blockade Spain can
eradicate the Franco rebellion. Such a move
will serve to confine the struggle within the pen-
insula, easing international tensions and finally
rendering Franco and the fascists conquerable.

Olsen And Hines
To the Editor:
A recent letter suggesting several changes in
the selection of future J-Hop bands, and also
your future on the coming J-Hop stating that
George Olsen will be remembered for his suc-
cessful engagements at Westwood Gardens, finds
me giving the Juniors a bit of free' publicity.
In the first place, no matter what bands the
student body might select, the actual number
of big name bands available at this time of year
is very small. This is self-evident after look-
ing over the list of bands and where they are
located. Only a few are on tour while the rest
are tied up in one spot for at least a month or
two.
Aside from that, it appears that the dance
committees of previous years, including the
present one, have done as well as could be ex-
pected in choosing bands. This year, in par-
ticular, those attending the J-Hop are far more
fortunate than they realize in being able to dance
to the newest style in music, namely, George
Olsen's Music of Tomorrow! At this point it
might be worthwhile to enlighten those people
who are still ignorant of the fact that Olsen has
within the past six months taken over the late
Orville Knapp's band in its entirety and dis-
banded his old outfit which played at Westwood
several summers back.
In conclusion, I predict that George Olsen's
new band will not only hold every dancer spell-
bound by its tonal beauty and versatility of its
members, but will also rise in 1937 to a position
among the ten most popular dance bands in
the country! In all fairness to Earl (Father)
Hines, may I say that his swell swing aggregation
will provide the much demanded contrast to that
of Olsen's (as there are still some who refuse
to listen to sweet music but who will neverthe-
less be seen at the J-Hop), a point which should
be kept in mind by all future committees when
pairing up two bands.

YEHUDI MENUHIN, youthful genius on the
violin who is at present in retirement for a
two-year period, is going to break the fast tonight
when he appears as guest soloist on the General
Motors concert. Also on the program will be
Georges Enesco, Menuhin's former teacher, who
will conduct the orchestra. Josef Hofmann,
pianist who has proven himself popular with Ann
Arbor audiences, will be the guest soloist on the
Ford Sunday Evening Hour tonight. Victor Kolar
will conduct the orchestra.

Ethel Waters, blues singer par excellence, will
probably exchange plenty of remarks with the
Old Maestro Tuesday night when she appears on
Bernie's program. Bernie's orchestra, never
really in the top rank, seems to be drifting a little
to the poor side. He lost a valuable man in Dick
Stabile. * * *
A special program is to be broadcast at 8 p.m.
today over NBC honoring the best moving pic-
tures of last year, as chosen by the film critics of
New York. The pictures receiving the top awards
were "Dodsworth" and "Mr. Deeds Goes To
Town." Tonight several scenes from these shows
will be reenacted, with Walter Huston, Gary
Cooper and Jean Arthur appearing in their re-
spective roles. * * *
WE THOUGHT the broadcast from Hill Audi-
torium Friday night went over pretty well
with the seen audience. It was, in our opinion,
by no means excellent, but it was far from bad.
Next Friday the same trick will be turned from
the University of Chicago.

Gus Arnheim has a new group with him now.
Gus has been in the business a long time and

WEEK IN REVIEW
NATIONAL
Rising Waters
A steady rainfall of six inches in two days
presaged what may be one of the most serious
floods in the nation's history, as Wednesday
found the middle and lower Ohio river valley
menaced by high, raging waters, which were
held back at the mouth of the Ohio by the
already overburdened Mississippi.
Throughout the week the Ohio rose steadily
and rapidly, as did the Wabash and White
rivers in southern Indiana, and late yesterday
more than 150,000 persons in the flood area
were homeless. Life and property in 12 states
is endangered by the high waters, particularly
in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Pennsylvania, West
Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, Missis-
sippi and North Carolina. While the flood has
not yet reached its crest, 16 persons are already
reported dead, and damage thus far is be-
lieved to be as much as was caused by last
spring's floods.
With freezing weather aggravating the dis-
tress of victims, the Ohio has surged a foot
above the record crest of 71.1 feet set 53
years ago, and it is expected that it will reach
72.5 feet before it begins to recede. Portsmouth,
Ohio, protected by a $1,000,000 concrete flood
wall was inundated and isolated, the swirling
river forming a waterfall over the huge wall.
In Pittsburgh, the "Golden Triangle" at the
junction of the Monongahela and Allegheny
rivers is not yet completely flooded, but the
crest has already reached 32.3 feet, seven feet
above the flood stage.
Along the ever-widening Mississippi, forecasts
carried warnings of an all-time high crest, and
National Guardsmen have been called out to
protect levees. In Washington, Admiral Cary
T. Grayson, Red Cross chairman, appealed to
the nation for a $2,000,000 relief fund. The
flood waters are expected to reach their highest
crest within the next seven days.
Four Years Ago .. .
Before a crowd which braved a cold, driving
rain President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was
inaugurated Thursday, being the first president
to take the oath of office on a day other than
March 4 with the exception of George Wash-
ington, and others who have succeeded to the
office on the death of a president.
After the oath was administered to President
Roosevelt for the second time by Chief Jus-
tice of the United States Charles Evans Hughes,
he delivered an address called by Democrats a
gospel, by Republicans a sermon. Carrying a
significant overtone of progress, the speech was
delivered in an atmosphere differing greatly
from that of March 4, 1933, when thousands
who had travelled to Washington to witness the
inauguration were stranded by bank closings.
The President sounded the most serious note
of the address in painting a dark picture of
millions (one third, indeed) of our people who
are at this moment living under conditions
"labelled indecent by a so-called polite society
half a century ago." He emphasized that this
picture was painted not in despair but in hope,
because "the nation seeing and understanding
the injustice in it, proposes to paint it out."
Deadlocked
Attempts at flinding a solution to the Gen-
eral Motors Corporation strike were bought
to a sharp stop Monday when officials of the
United Automobile Workers of America in-
structed sit-down strikers in General Motors
Flint plants not to evacuate, thus breaking with
the agreement which was made last week to
clear the way for negotiations.
The reason for the Union's action as stated by
Homer Martin, its president, was that the Flint
workers had been "double-crossed" by Gen-
eral Motors' executive vice-president William S.
Knudsen when he agreed Monday to enter into
bargaining with the Flint Alliance. The Flint
I Alliance, which was formed last week to enroll
the support of "loyal workers and citizens," is
headed by George Boyson, former mayor of Flint
and former Buick paymaster.
At the suggestion of Governor Frank Murphy,
the Alliance agreed early in the week to keep

in the background for the present, and so the
way was paved for conferences between Gover-
nor Murphy, Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins,
'John L. Lewis, chairman of the Committee for
Industrial Organization and Alfred P. Sloan,
Jr., president of General Motors.
But on Thursday the Buick plant in Flint was
forced to close down because of lack of supplies,
adding 10,000 more to the ranks of Flint's un-
employed, and bringing the total of idle General
Motors workers throughout the country to almost
135,000; and Governor Murphy announced that
he could discover no way to break the deadlock
through state action.
FOREIGN
Hirota Cabinet Resigns
After days of negotiations, Japanese Premier
Koki Hirota's cabinet was forced to resign yes-
terday by the lower house of parliament. The
premier, unable to reconcile the leaders of the
house parties which have been attacking the
army bitterly and angry military leaders, pre-
sented the cabinet's mass resignation to Emperor
Hirohito after a final session-of his ministers.
This, the first instance in Japan's parliamen-
tary history in which the lower house has suc-
ceeded in wrecking the government, which has
on all previous occasions resorted to dissolution
and a general election, has been brought on by
the firm opposition of both major and minor
parties not only to the military and financial
policies of the Hirota government but to what
they charged was a growing tendency towards
Fascism and domination by a military bureauc-
racy.

MUSIC
Silver Cornet
By WILLIAM .J. LICHTENWANGER
'N CONNECTION with the concert
to be presented this afternoon by'
the University of Michigan Band,;
conducted by Prof. William D. Revelli,
we would like to say a few words
concerning the type of organization
toward which Prof. Revelli is work-
ing - the symphonic band. There
was a time, not so very far gone, when I
the mention of a band in a serious
musical discussion would have been
as out of place as the well-known
bull in the china shop. That was the
day of the silver cornet band, which
played the Butterfly Gavotte in the
park on Sunday afternoons; of the
circus brass band, which waltzed the
elephants and headed the big parade;
of the regimental band, with its loud
uniforms and louder trumpets. In
ilate years, with the decline of parks,
circuses, and - ahem! - armies,
these venerable institutions have been
superseded to a great extent by the
school marching band, whose chief
function is to spend rainy autumn
afternoons urging 11 weary bodies
over the sodden earth to the tune of
Washington and Lee Swing or Our
Director.
In speaking thus jocularly of these
institutions we are emphatically not
derating their value to the commu-
nity. The old-fashioned park concert,
the between-halves maneuvers, are
valuable sources of entertainment.
But they are no more valid as forms
of artistic expression than a sandlot
ball game isrrepresentative of big
league baseball. The distinction be-
tween entertainment value and aes-
thetic value is one which is too often
lacking in all forms of art, but per-
haps most frequently in music. This
distinction is recognized much more
clearly with regard to orchestras
than to bands. Everyone will admit
the difference in function between a
dance orchestra, a salon orchestra
which provides a background for din-
ing or conversation, and the sym-
phony orchestra, whose purpose is
primarily aesthetic rather than one
of entertainment. The same distinc-
tion should be, but seldom is, made
between a marching band, a "pop"
band which plays light music for
popular pleasure, and a symphonic
band, whose musical aims and stand-
ards are as high as - although not
the same as - those of a symphony
orchestra.
The reason that this distinction is
seldom made is that the true sym-
phonic band has been in existence
only a decade or two, and there are
so few organizations of that type that
their existence is not universally
recognized. The history of the band
is somewhat like that of the sym-
phony orchestra at a much earlie
period. Originally, all instrumental
music was used only as an accom-
paniment for singing, dancing, o
speaking. Gradually, as the art o
music and the capacities of variou
instruments were developed, instru-
mental music for its own sake cam
to be admitted, and by the end of the
18th century a comparatively stable
orchestra, built around the family o:
stringed instruments as a base, wa
evolved out of a haphazard and het-
erogeneous collection of instruments
Wind instruments were of equal im-
portance with the strings in the earl
orchestras, but the strings graduall
became the backbone of the grou
because of their greater versatilit
and degree of perfection. As con-
structional improvements increase
their usefulness and composers de-
sired greater instrumental variety
more wind instruments were added
and it is only in this section tha
there has been much change in th
orchestra since Haydn.

Now the band, which is built
around the family of wood wind.
rather than the strings, has existec
in some form or other longer thar
the orchestra, and in medieval time.
it was of much more importance be-
cause of its martial and regal char-
acteristics. But its evolution ha;
been much slower than that of th(
orchestra because the wind instru-
ments were not developed and per.
fected as soon as were the strings
The band, in the modern sense of th
word, only began to develop abou

its present form-during the latter
part of the 18th century. There wer(

to that development: the perfectior

bands of adequate proportions and
abilities composers are not interested
in writing or publishers in publishing
for band music which is really worth-
while. Therefore conductors have to
content themselves either with second
rate music, which "sells" and "goes
over" but is of low musical value, or
with transcriptions of music written
originally for other mediums. Fortu-
nately, there is quite a bit of such
music which is equally or more ef-
fective when played by band. The
two Bach chorales and Siciliano
which the University Band are play-
ing this afternoon are a good ex-
ample; the contrapuntal parts have
more strength and brilliance, the
harmonic structure has greater rich-
ness, and the whole effect is more
sonorous than when they are played
1by orchestra.
It is precisely in this sort of music
that the band excels. It can never
hope to equal the beauty of tone,
flexibility of technique, and infinite
variety of expression which the
strings give the orchestra. On the
other hand, the orchestra, because
of its greater variety of tonal colors,
can never achieve an effect as bril-
liant, sonorous, and well-blended as
the band. It is to be hoped that com-
posers will soon, as some already
have, recognize and take advantage
of the peculiarity abilities of the mod-
ern symphonic band, with its com-
plete families of single and double
reeds, powerful yet flexible brass
choir, and minor accoutrements-
including that dangerous master but
invaluable servant, the percussion
group, and a number of stringed in-
