Third Conc
Fritz Kreisler, internationally
known violinist, will be heard at the
third Choral Union Concert at 8:30
p.m. Friday at Hill Auditorium.
Kreisler was born in Vienna, the
son of a distinguished physician, who
was also an excellent amateur musi-
cian. His first violin lessons were
given him by his father, and at the
age of seven Kreisler made his public
Regulations Relaxed
Shortly after his debut, Kreisler
was entered as a student at the
Vienna Conservatory, in spite of the
fact that one of the regulations of
the institution specified that no one
younger than fourteen be admitted.
For three years, Kreisler studied
there with Joseph Hellmesberger,
receiving the goldtmedal for violin
playing. He was then sent to Paris
where he studied under Massart and
Delibes at the Conservatory.
From Paris, Kreislerhreturned to
Vienna and undertook his first tour.
The tour marked Kreisler's first ap-
pearance in the United States. The
violinist's American debut took place
in Boston on Nov. 9, 1888.
Turns to Medicine
His American tour was successful,
but upon his return to Vienna, Kreis-
ler startled the musical world with

After a full year as a soldier,
Kreisler abandoned his uniform and
returned to the violin. Since his
return he has performed in many of
the greatest cities of the world. He
has been in the United States as a
resident and soloist since the winter
of 1919.
Had Serious Accident
In 1941, he was injured in a near-
fatal accident while crossing the
street in New York City. Little hope
was given for his recovery, even less
for his ever being able to play again.
However, he made a remarkable re-
covery, and was able to play several
concerts the following season. The
following year his tour was com-
pletely booked again.

Prof. Steere Completes Quest
For Quinine-Produein Bark

After two years of research in the
wilds of Ecuador, Peru and Colombia
in search of new sources of quinine,
Prof. William C. Steere has returned
to his duties as a member of the
University's botany department.
Expeditions in the jungle country
of northern South America have pro-
duced 30 new species of 'the quinine
family plants and enough of the
drug, Dr. Steere said, to supply the
Army's needs for malaria victims.
G.E. Announces New
Rubber From Sand
NEW YORK, Nov. 14.-UI)-A new
synthetic rubber, made mainly from
sand, and which forms a bouncing
putty, was announced here today by
the General Electric Company.
In the form shown today, this
silicone rubber is snow-white, soft as
putty, pulls like taffy candy, but
unlike either, if you drop a piece of
it, it bounces higher than a rubber
This unheard-of action is due to
the peculiar fact that when silicone
rubber is pressed slowly it is a plastic
like molding clay. When stress hits
it suddenly, like the impact in drop-
ping onto the floor, the stuff becomes
momentarily completely resilient.

Sent by the Board of Economic
Warfare, Prof. Steere camped in the
forests of Ecuador, Colombia and
Peru to locate stocks of the chin-
chona tree, from whose bark quinine
and other anti-malarials are derived.
Accompanied by Dr. F. R. Fosberg,
of the United States Department of
Agriculture, Prof. Steere began the
search for a replacement of the
natural supply located in the Dutch
East Indies, now in Japanese hands.
Quinine producing trees originally
came from South America and like
rubber was transplanted in the East
Indies, Prof. Steere said.
Stripped Quinine-Producing Bark j
The job of the expedition was to
find the trees, strip them of the
quinine-producing bark, and have
the bark transported to the United
States, where it is processed. A state
department agreement assures the
South American nations that the
chinchona trees will be replaced with
new domestic growths.
Prof. Steere first went on the ex-
pedition in October, 1942. He said
the problem today was less of dis-
covering sources than of maintaining
a steady flow of chinchona bark. The
sponsoring department, formerly the
Board of Economic Warfare, has
been replaced by the Foreign Eco-
nomic Administration.
