LILY PONS starred last night in an
extremely careful and well-con-
trolled performance. When her se-
lections depended solely upon piysi-
cal ornamentation and decorative
patterns, she was thoroughly com-
petent-as was especially evident in
the Faure song and the Rossini area.
She handled the difficult Queen of
the Night Aria with amazing accur-
acy, although more expression and
volume were necessary. Also I would
have preferred it in the original
German rather than French. Breath-
ing difficulties occurred at times--
in the Variations on a theme by Mo-
zart, and later, accompanying her
somewhat excessive flourishes in the
aria, "Una voce poco fa." But simi-
lar flourishes in her first encore,
"Les Filles de Cadix," were quite
Miss Pons' assets--her range and
staccato preciseness-overbalanced
considerably her weaker points-
thinness and lack of dramatic ex-
pression. Nevertheless, even the
thin quality was absent at times
-especially so in the Air by Saint-
Saens, and in the encore, Estrel-
lita. I, for one, did not like her
superfluous, theatrical variations in
the last encore, the Blue Danube
Waltz; but the audience seemed to
enjoy it. All in all, Miss Pons
merited the enthusiastic response
of the audience.
EVERYTHING that was lacking in
the orchestra's playng yesterday
afternoon appeared in the inspired
performance last night. Opening with
the Overture to "Oberon," Saul Cas-
ton exercised precise control, and
the Philadelphia Orchestra respond-
ed with unrelenting virtuosity. The
first portion of "Espana" was slight-
ly inferior to the rest of the pro-
gram, but the proper spirit and co-
ordination were soon established.
The main fault that one can find
with the music of Tchaikovsky is the

manner in which it is usually inter-
preted, rather than the ideas and
mechanisms employed in the actual
composition. Intense emotion usual-
ly becomes distorted hysteria; drama
becomes melodrama. It is with this
in mind that one can even more
fully appreciate Mr. Caston's inter-
pretation. With a vital sincerity and
directness, the Philadelphia Orches-
tra gave an almost unsurpassable
version, with only a rare excess of
soaring and exaggeration. High
praise is due the various sections of
the orchestra, to the woodwinds and
horns, in particular; the French
horn solo of the second movement
was outstanding.
The high point in the excellence of
the present Series has been reached.

Afternoon Concert
is not this reviewer's intention to
be clever, or to bore the general read-
ing public with technical music
terms. If those who think they know
music find faults, they are asked to

Outstanding at yesterday after-
noon's concert was Astrid Varnay's
interpretation of Wagnerian arias.
Her voice was clear and powerful;
her breathing, sensitive and well-
controlled. Her voice and style are
extremely adaptableto Wagnerian
opera. Noticeable, however, in the
opening bit of the excerpt from
"Siegfried" was a slight wavering
and uncertainty of notes; earlier
in the program, too, her Mozart
aria contained slight distortions
and some uncovered notes. But, in
general, her performance was ex-
A special feature yesterday was the

It seems that The Daily could do
better in selecting critics to represent
them in the music field. It may not
be Mr. Protetch's task to decide
whether Mr. Baccaloni's subject mat-
ter is fitting for the concert stage,
but it is also not his task to decide if
Mr. Baccaloni can sing or not.
Great men who have studied music
all their life find it very hard to
judge a good singer and above all do
not stoop to such depths as to decide
whether one of the world's finest
artists gives a performances of
"rough spots and flat notes."
Duane F. Burdick

rection of Marguerite Hood, singing
a Fantasy made up of folk songs of
the United Nations. The songs were
cute; the children were cute; every-
one thought so. The children's vol-
ume was just sufficient to indicate
that they were articulating; and the
less said about the amateurish or-
chestration by Marion McArtor, as
well as the sloppy performance of
the orchestra, the better.
The Philadelphia Orchestra was
conducted by Saul Caston, and they
opened the program with the Over-
ture to the "Marriage of Figaro."
Though this was well done, miore
bite and precision would have bet-
tered the performance.
Brahms' Symphony No. 1 was
played in fittingly pretentious fash-
ion. To my mind, this is one of .the
worst examples of Brahms' attempts
to be momentous and monumental.
Based on small but excellent themes,
this work is inflated to the point of
boredom; crafty instrumentation a-
lone does not make for great music.
However, it was in this work that
Mr. Caston had best control of the
orchestra. -David Protetch

Overburdened Hospital
Staff Must Have Help
A GAIN the Manpower Corps is pleading for
men to help the overburdened hospital staff.
Realizing that they have two strikes against
them with finals coming up and many men go-
ing into the Army, they still need help des-
So great is the need that all hour requirements
have been waived, and prospective workers may
name the number and the particular time that
they will work. Previously the hospital has de-
manded that every worker on salary work at
least 14 hours. Now anyone who can work an
hour a week will be paid 57 cents for that hour.
The work is simple, unskilled labor, but it is
vitally necessary to the functioning of a big hos-
pital. Dishes must be washed, trays must be
made up and workers must be fed. Busy as stu-
dents are today there must be some hours that
are free to do this essential work.
It may not be as glamorous as shooting down
26 Jap planes, it may not seem as noble as being
a Navy nurse, people may applaud the returning
heroes more, but work of this sort is vitally
necessary if the civilian front is to be protected
from enemies from within: disease, contagion
and illness. - Margaret Frank
Action Must Be Taken
Against Admiral Robert
Admiral Robert has declared himself for Vi-
chy. The time has come to oust that Nazi dupe
from the Western Hemisphere.
Admiral Robert is aiding the Nazis as surely
as if he were at war with us. He is tying up
many U.S. warships around Martinique.
Admiral Robert is doing to the United States
precisely what Il Duce did to France before he
finally stabbed it in the back. We cannot afford
to allow these "peaceful" enemies to exist in the
Breaking relations is not enough, U.S. forces
must occupy the island now. The civilian
administration can then be elected by the in-
habitants who from recent reports are 95%
Swift and effective military action, and not
meaningless' diplomatic claptrap must be our
answer to Admiral Robert's anti-Allied stand.

WASHINGTON, May 8.- Before the summer
is over, Adolph Hitler will know that he has a
tough poker player to deal with. This is more
than a figure of speech. Major Gen. Ira C.
Eaker, Commanding General of the Eighth U.S.
Air Force, in England, is not only a top-fighting
flyer, but also the best poker player in the Air
He knows when to fold a bad hand, and when
to stay in to the finish. This summer, with more
air power than any other American officer ever
commanded at any time or place, Gen. Eaker will
stay in to the finish. And he firmly believes that
the blow he intends to deal will be decisive.
For months he has been fighting for more
equipment, and now he is ready to fight with it.
Until now he has had so few bombers that the
number has been a strict military secret. But
beginning now, he is getting so many bombers
that it's much more of a secret.
There is a lot of guesswork about where the
Allies will stagean invasion of the continent-
and when. But there is no guesswork about Gen.
Eaker's invasion. He has now finished with ex-
periments, and is ready to supplement the RAF
raids by putting great formations of American
bombers in the air, three, four and five times a
week. He is prepared to carry such destruction
to factories and rail lines on the continent that
Hitler's troops cannot move from one place to
Eaker says that the Vegasack raid pulled the
trigger. That was the end of experiments. It's
now clear that the American method of daylight
high-altitude precision bombing is a success. The
case is proved, and from this point forward the
method will be applied with the skill and ruth-
lessness which Eaker himself personifies.
Eaker is one of the most offensive-minded men
in the Army. He would rather use his last plane
and his last pilot in attack than to resort to
safer tactics of defense.
One day last winter he received a message
from Washington asking if he wanted anti-air-
craft equipment to defend his airdromes in Eng-
land. His reply was-"Use that shipping space
to send me more stuff and more men to fight
He runs the U.S. air show from England with
the same offensive tactics he uses in his poker
game. He is rough. In pre-war days, Jack Gar-
ner, champion poker player of Washington,
learned those tactics, to his sorrow. And more
recently, Lieut. Gen. Carl Spaatz has learned
some of Eaker's poker. There is no penny-ante
about it.
Eaker has his enemies in the Air Corps, largely
because he has passed them by. Or perhaps be-
cause he has broken them. Once he discharged
a fighter pilot from the service for failure to
open his canopy in a forced landing.
Eaker is indifferent to popularity. In fact, he
distrusts officers who are conspicuously popular,
fearing they will dictate fighting policy accord-
ing to humane considerations. Eaker's policy is
relentless; it may be hard on his men, and most
of them think he is tough, but it's harder on
Eaker had hoped to get a fighter command,

P'd Rather
Be Right
NEW YORK, May 8.- The political game for
next year will be to hook as many voters as pos-
sible, even if you have to bait some of your hooks
with fish and others with meat.
Thus, while most Republicans are proclaiming
that isolation is finished, most of them, also, are
for a return to what they call states' rights.
They are in favor of closer relations with
London, but more remote relations with Wash-
ington. They grant that the world is shrink-
ing, but they contend that this country is get-
ting bigger. They admit that the world must
solve its problems as one, but they hold that
America can solve its problems in fractions.
They are turning outward and inward simul-
taneously, a contortion perhaps attended with
The result is a curious double-vision, in which
the victim sees new American air-lines spanning
the whole of a shrunken world, while each town
and state in this country makes its own rules as
to labor, competition, regulation, etc. It is a
vision big as the world and small as a pea; large
enough to ride on and handy enough to keep in
your pocket.
Another double-baiting of the hook takes
place when it is argued (not only by Republi-
cans) that this time we must really take care
of the boys when they come marching home,
and also that we must weed out the alphabet
In other words, we must do more with less. We
must take care of the boys and we must fire
those officials who alone can take care of them.
We must cultivate the garden of democracy,
but down with hoes. The intention is to do it,
but by telepathy, and for free.
The hook for votes is baited two different ways,
again, when it is argued that centralized govern-
ment interferes too much with individual liber-
ties, and also hurrah for state's rights in Kansas,
which has just passed a law sharply restricting
the labor movement.
This sort of thing goes on all the time. As
when it is argued (by the isolationist press)
that this internationalist Roosevelt govern-
ment of ours has got to stop giving orders to
private citizens, and also, that, after the war,
when we get rid of Mr. R.'s ideas, we are going
to need compulsorypeacetime military train-
ing to be safe in the world though separated
from it.
The individual is going to be free as the air
and dressed in buttons.
If you add these appeals together (and some
politicians do) the voter is asked to endorse a
dream in which America will be entirely free to
do business anywhere, but will have obligations
nowhere; in which everybody will be taken care
of, but by nobody; in which we shall be allowed
to lead our own lives, except when we take a
couple of years out for compulsory peacetime
military training, to make it safe for the isola-
tionists to lead their own lives.
It will also be a world in which we shall steer
a safe course through the troubled future, but
each state and city is going to do its own steer-

Seniors: The firm which furnishes di-
plomas for the University has sent the
following caution: "Please warn graduates
not to store diplomas in cedar chests.
There is enough of the moth-killing aro-

stored inside them, resulting in seriously
damaging the diplomas."

To Students Graduating at Commence-
ment, May 29, 1943:
Diplomas not called for at the offices
of the Recorders of the several Schools
and Colleges, immediately following the
Commencement Exercises, or at the Busi-
ness Office by June 2, will be mailed C.O.D.
The domestic postage payable under these
conditions will be 27c for the larger sized
rolled diplomas and 36c for the book form.
Will each graduate, therefore, be cer-
tain that the Diploma Clerk has his cor-
rect mailing address to insure delivery by
mail? The U.S. Mail Service will, it is
expected, return any diplomas which can-
not be delivered. Because of adverse
conditions abroad, foreign students shouid
leave addresses in the United States, if
possible, to which diplomas may be mailed.
It is preferred that ALL diplomas be
personally called for.
