1689, is recognized as the first
true English opera. It is consid-
ered a product of the Restoration,
arising when Charles II, impa-
tient with the stodgy style of court
music, sent a musician to France
to learn the secret of opera in
that country. Henry Purcell was
influenced by the results of that
study, and wrote the opera for
initial performance in an English
girl's school of drama and music.
Proposal by Telephone
"The Telephone," which was
performed by a professional com-
pany in several American cities
this season and last, comes to the
amateur stage with an enviable
reputation of success. The work
is a humorous sketch of a love
scene between a determined suitor
and his young lady friend who
is constantly on the telephone. His
only chance for a proposal of mar-
riage comes when, in desperation,
he leaves her apartment and con-
tacts her from a pay station.
Tickets for the two operas will
be placed on sale tomorrow at
Lydia Mendelssohn box office. A
special reduced student rate will
prevail for the Wednesday and
Thursday evening performances.

wners are in for a huge new crop
f problems if they win their fight
vith the FCC for the right to try
heir editorial wings on the air.
Frank Stanton, president of
CBS, admitted as much at the
-CC hearings in Washington last
veek. He said that editorializing
on controversial issues "is not the
easy course for broadcasters to
take," and that there would be
"an acceleration of difficult poh-
,y decisions."
Think what these "difficult
decisions" could do to a consci-
entious broadcaster trying to
meet his editorial responsibilit-
ies. Picture, if you will, a scene
in the office of a hard working
station-owner, who finds plane-
tary issues staring him in the

Owner: (waving a teletype re-

you know what that means.
Director: Yessir. Means we gotta
have a good strong editorial for
the "As We See It" spot today.
Owner: Right. You know my views,
Joe-Russia can go to heck. Make
it good and meaty.
Director: (tentatively pecking at
typewriter) Yessir. The usual lead-
off remarks - "Good afternoon,
this is station KLMA-FM, bring-
ing you the world of today AS WE

do not necessarily represent the
views of any political party or ele-

sir? "The triumph of the Commun-
ists in Lower Slobbovia means but
one thing-the disastrous crumb-
ling of one of the last strongholds
of democratic government in Eas-
tern Europe,"
Owner: Fine, Bill. That's just the
way I'd phrase it. Go to it, man.
