hind the strings and the fullness of
the orchestra could pe heard echoing
and reechoing through the building.
Then there was a tap of the stick and
everything slowed down into one huge
discord of undertones. The Univer-
sity Symphony 'Orchestra under the
direction of Prof. Thor Johnson was
rehearsing for its opening concert of
the season, which will be given at
4:15 p.m. Sunday, in Hill Auditorium.
Professor Johnson ;gave the signal

Nphonic Peem, Op. 6.....Rabaud
Symphony No. 1 in E minor ("Nor-
to the orchestra and they continued
playing, the ,musicians, who are all
students here, following him intently
with their eyes.
Later, after the colorful rehearsal,
in an interview Professor Johnson,
explaining the purpose of the Univer-
sity Symphony Orchestra, said that it
had a three fold purpose: First and
foremost is to give the students a
chance to play in a real symphony or-
chestra. Secondly, they are given an
opportunity to get acquainted with
great symphonic literature. The last
reason is formulated with regard to
the symphony concerts given by the
visiting orchestras on the Choral
Union Series.
"These visiting orchestrds, such as
the Boston, Cleveland, Minneapolis
and Chicago organizations usually
give programs made up of standard
concert pieces," pointed out Professor
Johnson, "with the result that the
students rarely get a chance to hear
any new nor seldomly played works."
P5rofessor Johnson, who is one of
the youngest symphony conductors

appeared with many outstanding mu-
sical organizations, including the
Berkshire Center Symphony in Tan-
glewood, Mass., where he studied un-
der Dr. Koussevitsky, and the Phila-
delphia Orchestra, with which he has
appeared on four occasions. Plus his
teaching commitments, he finds time
to be regular conductor of the Grand
Rapids Symphony Orchestra, and
conductor and oginator of the Mo-
zart Festival in Ashville, N. C., every
Of singular interest on Sunday's
program is the playing of the Sym-
phony No. 22 in E-flat major of Franz
Josef Haydn. This symphony was
played for the first time in the United
States in 1939 by Professor Johnson
and the University Symphony Or-
chestra. It was played again last
year by Eugene Goosens and the Cin-
cinnati Orchestra. Professor Johnson
is, in a sense the discoverer of this
work and students areafforded ex-
cellent opportunity to hear this rare

sharp slump in sales of automobiles
and household furnishings was
blamed by the Commerce Depart-
ment today for an unseasonal decline
in retail business from August to
The department estimated retail
sales totaled $4,472,000,000 in Sep,
tember, a decline of 2.7 percent from
the August total of $4,595,000,000,
The September figure, however, was
well ahead of the $3,673,000,000 for
September last year.
The Department said some retail
lines, particularly jewelry and liquor,
advanced in September because of
advance buying by the public before
new federal taxes became effective
Oct. 1, but these increases were not
enough to offset the slump in more
expensive items such as automobiles.
