Music Therapy
Is New Method
In Psychiatry
Music therapy has gained a foot-
hold in the annals of psychiatry.
Largely through the efforts of Dr.
Ira Altshuler, psychiatrist, and Mrs.
Jane Matney, his assistant, this com-
paratively new method of treatment
for the insane has brought an "in-
curable" schizophrenic to nation-wide
acclaim as a skilled pianist.
Beard Over Rad~cio
The pianist, an inmate of the
Wayne County General Hospital, was
heard last Sunday night on the "We
the People" broadcast offering a ren-
dition of Mozart's Concerto in D
Minor. Known as the "Mad Pianist,"
"Music Master X" and "Horace F," he
has been confined to the hospital for
eight years.
The use of music therapy as treat-
ment for insanity has long been over-
shadowed by other more accepted
methods-shock treatment, occupa-
tional therapy and psysiotherapy-
largely because it was not advanced
to its proper place. Few institutions
in this country have ascribed to music
therapy as a positive method in phy-
chiatry although it is commonly
known that music has a definite f-
fect on personality. Today, as a re-
sult of the efforts of the two scien-
tists, music therapy has been placed
in the limelight.
Technique Studied.
Dr. Altshuler and Mrs. Matney
have been working on the technique
of music therapy for five years. Ex-
amining patients carefully for pos-
sible latent music talents, they have
tried to draw out of the individual
the responses he might experience
while trying to master a musical in-
strument, as well as when music was
played for him.
Cured In 18 Months
The technique was applied to "Hor-
ace F." who had been dispossessed of
muscular coordination, an affliction
which extended to his vocal cords.
Gradually reorganizing his chaotic
mind through an eighteen month
course of arduous work, the patient
regained his lost musical world, re-
captured his skill at the piano, and
replaced at least that segment of his
torn personality.
Dr. Altshuler, a reknowned psy-
chiatrist, attended the University of
Bern in Switzerland. He took addi-
tional training at Columbia Univer-
sity. Mrs. Matney received her train-
ing at Wilberforce University in Ohio
and at the New England Conserva-
tory of Music in Boston.

'Tarrable Mistake'
Reports Professor
Campus mails were burning to-
day as the Department of Astro-
nomy suddenly discovered that it
had become quite stuck on itself
and that no matter how brightly
the stars may shine, they can't be
seen through sheet metal and tar.
It seems, according to Prof.
Dean B. McLaughlin of the astro-
nomy department, in an open
letter to the University adminis-
tration (See page 4 of today's
Daily) that several weeks ago the
roof of Angell Hall was tarred and
those who did the job mistook one
of the telescope domes for part of
the roof, thus tarring it to the
The incident was discovered
Friday night when an open house
was held in the Angell Hall Obser-
vatory. With a crowd of 150 ex-
pected, there were frantic prepa-
rations to ready the Observatory
for the evening's perusal of the
Only one telescope could be
budged, however, the other one
tarred fast by the zealous roofers.
Fortunately, according to Prof.
McLaughlin, only about 20 visitors
showed up and could be handled
with the one functioning telescope.
Prof. McLaughlin said that the
tarred telescope had been tried
shortly after the new roof was put
on, but it was thought at the time
that a coating of ee on the roof
held it fast.
Friday night they discovered
differently, and yesterday Prof.
McLaughlin registered a formal
protest to University officials.
Eventual State
Is Foreseen
"I do not believe that the American
public is ready to accept as yet state
subvention of orchestras, whichis
the end to the transition now taking
place," Karl Krueger, conductor of
the Detroit Symphony Orchestra
said, following last night's concerts
Going back to the Austrian empire,
Krueger traced the history of the
present patronage system under
which most orchestras in the United
States exist. Under this system, he
averred, all activities were controlled
by the state. Therefore, the people
expected such cultural activities as
music and art to emanate from the
emperor. Later, he explained, wealthy
patricians had "the right idea," for
though they might have known noth-
ing about music, they employed the
great masters to perform for the peo-
Patronage System
In this way, Krueger continued
music became an offspring of private
largess. Asserting that large orches-
tras in the country would never have
been established or have attained
such prominence except under the
patronage system, Krueger said that
eventually the main orchestral ex-
penses will be supplied by the public.
But first, he added, concert music
must gain a wider public appeal and
understanding. As one method for
achieving this Krueger cited the
sponsored or sustained radio broad-
Music Appreciation
"The future of classical music de-
pends on the young people of this
country," Krueger declared. Through
younlg people's concerts, recordings
and school music appreciation classes,
he said, they are taught to hear music
with open minds. These are the same
people who will eventually support
orchestras throughout the country,
he concluded.
Truman Atacked by

Wason About Policies
DETROIT, March 11 - (/P) - The
President of the National Association
of Manufacturers declared today that
the Truman administration, "having
no economic platform of its own,
adopts the economic platform of the
CIO in exchange for CIO support."
Robert R. Wason made the charges
before a luncheon meeting of the
Economic Club of Detroit.

-Russians withdrawing from Muk-

racks and six factories to Chinese
government authorities, the Central

All available reports here indicated
hinese Government troops were in
effective control of much of Mukden,

The Soviets, whose abrupt depar-

asked the Chinese mayor to take care
of Soviet commercial firms there, the
News Agency added.
