French Movie

Take Exams For Draft Army

Will Be Shown
By Art Cinema
Crime And Punishment'
Opens Run Tomorrow
At LydiaMendelssohn
Dostoievskli's phycological study of
a murderer is incorporated into 'the
French film "Crime and Punishment"
which will open at 8:30 p.m. tomor-
row at the Lydia Mendelssohn The-
atre for a three day run under the
auspices of the Art Cinema League.
All seats will be reserved, and may
be had for 35c at the Medelssohn box
office, or by calling 6300. The film
will be shown tomorrow, Friday and
Saturday evenings, and will be sup-
plemented by selected short subjects.
Another foreign film scheuled for
showing at 3:30 and 8:30 p.m. Sunday
is the German "Der Hauptmann Von
Koepenick," the cobbler captain of
Kopenick. Holders of the recent
Douglas Fairbanks series tickets will
be admitted free of charge to either
of the performances. General admis-
sion to others will be 35c, and may
also be secured at the Mendelssohn
bov office. Selected short supjects will
accompany this film too. Both foreign
pictures have been provided with
English sub-titles.
Tomorrow's "Crime And Punish-
ment is the story of a student who
becomes entangled in a sordid mur-
der, and of the retribution his own
conscience provides. Harry Baur,
Pierre Blancher and Madeleine Oze-
ray are the European actors. The
film won the World Grand Prize for
Acting at the Venice Exhibition in
1935, and also was chosen one of the
ten best foreign pictures released in
the United States in that year.
The German film is the true story
of William Voigt, whose sensational
one man revolt a decade or so ago
proved to be one of the biggest
hoaxes in history. A released convict,
he passed himself off as an officer
in the German Army, organized an
army and conquered a city.

The man with the baton at Sun-
day's Choral Union Concert, which
starts at 3 p.m. in Hill Auditorium,
will be 38 year old John Barbirolli,
who is conducting the New York Phil-
harmonic Symphony Orchestra on
,their most extensive tour of America.
Noted for his adherence to the
Toscanini method of conducting,
which is "find the composer's inten-
tions, pay rigid respect to the notes,
and interpret or change for the sole
purpose of heightening the effect,"
Barbirolli is famous also for his in-
troduction of formerly unfamiliar
works of the masters into his orches-
tra's repertoire.
As a person, Barbirolli has pro-
vided much copy for publicity
eblurbs.'Hewasborn in England of
a French mother and an Italian
father; he comes from a family that.
has been musical for generations; he
has traveled throughout the world,
meeting most of the newsworthy per-
sonalities of today.
Like many a human, Barbirolli has
few personal idiosyncracies. He likes
to tell cockney dialect stories. He
likes dry sherry, good Scotch, but no
cocktails. He likes York ham. Besides
collecting old English glass, antique
furniture and books, he has a special
array of cigarette cases presented to
him by devoted orchestras and mus-
ical societies and it may be noted
that he has conducted every import-
ant orchestra in England.
Although he conducts his rehears-
als with his epressive artist's hands,
he uses, during a public concert, one
of 75 batons he has made in London
the billiard champion's teacher and
touring partner. Favorite shots of
Jake Schaefer, Welker Cochran, Jay
Bozeman, Allen Hall, Johnny Lay-
ton and other stars also are inclusled
in Peterson's repertoire.


by a Scotsman who has served him
for many years. The batons are 18
inches long.
An interesting relationship to the
men in his orchestra is the fatherly
attitude he has assumed. He discusses
their family and personal problems
with them, and each Christmas gives
a large party for their children, play-
ing Santa Claus himself.
