Puzzled About
What to Give?


A Russian conductor turned. Amer-
ican is the story of Dr. Serge Kousse-
vitsky who will lead the Boston Sym-
phony Orchestra in the sixth Choral
Union Concert at 8:30 p.m. Wednes-
day, Dec. 10, its Hill Auditorium. .
A Russian expatriate, comparatively
unknown in this country at the time,
Dr. Koussevitsky was appointed con-
ductor of the Boston Symphony Or-
chestra in 1924. He had, of course,
already achieved success in London
avpd Paris.
Although already in his 17th year
as conductor Dr. Koussevitsky still
continues his simple life. He doesn't
care for society but thrives on travel.
His favorite refreshment is a hot
lemonade which his niece calls the
"tea of health."
Referred to as the man "who con-
trols rigidly a volcanic temperament,"
Dr. Koussevitsky shows his real na-
ture at rehearsals of the orchestra.
Attired in a special blouse of his own
design, he directs with motions that
would exhaust even the strongest ath-
As a conductor, Dr. Kous'sevitsky
at first shocked the traditionals with
his continual sponsorship of new mu-
sic. His great individualism, however,
has always been tempered with "in-
fallible taste and intuition."
Dr. Koussevitsky will lead the Bog-
ton Symphony Orchestra on Wednes-
day in the rendering of Mozart's Sym-
phony in D major (Haffner) and Wil-
liam Schuman's Symtphony No. 3.
Symphony No. 4 in E Minor' by
Brahms will also be played.

Therapy For Crippled Children

(Editor's Note: This is the last of a
series of case histories of children at
the University Hospital who will be

annual Galens drive tomorrow and
Joe, age 13, came to the Galens
workshop every day during his stay,
in the hospital. From the very start,
he showed an outstanding aptitude
in the use of tools.
When Joe left, his report read:
"Joe is very much sinterested in
woodwork, shows above average
ability in the use of equipment and
choice of materials. Joe learned to
use the jig saw, sander and drill
press so as to be able to help others
and aid in learning the funda-
mentals of their use. Joe was well
liked, being a leader in all activi-

Marvin, also 13, was a frail boy,
having been in the hospital for a
long time.
Besides working on Scouting, Mar-

vin learned a great deal about the
shop. Of necessity he worked slowly,
but the work was always well done.
He learned to follow directions and
to ask questions when he was not
clear on any points.
Marvin was interested in a num-
ber of handicrafts and in making
] the most of his time and opportunity
while inthe hospital.
His instructor reported him as
well-adjusted socially, capable and
always willing to help others.
* * *
Ip general, the boys have a strong
desire to do their best, and prize the
things they make in the shop. Many
of them were in a highly excited
stage when leaving the hospital for
fear their projects would not be
mailed to them if they could not take
it when they left.
The Galens workshop offers com-
panionship, self expression and satis-
fying projects, each suited to the in-
dividual interest and strengths of
each child.
