Eddy,dknown to most people for
his performances on the radio and
in the movies, actually got his
singing start in opera as Amonasro
in Verdi's "Aida." He won his role
with the Philadelphia Operatic So-
ciety as the result of a city-wide
competition of singers.
HIS DEBUT in professional
opera came later in 1924, when
he sang the role of Tonio, in "Pag-
liacci," in the Philadelphia Civic
Opera Company's Metropolitan
Opera House production.
While with the company, Eddy
was given serious operatic coach-
ing by Alexander Smallens, then
It's MC I
director of the Company. Under
Smallens, Eddy developed a
repertoire of 28 operatic roles.
Several years later, motion pic-
ture scouts heard him sing at the
Philharmonic Auditorium in Los
Angeles, and he was signed to do
the picture that made him nation-
ally famous, "Naughty Marietta."
Eddy then went on from his suc-
cess in the movies to become a
star on the radio, having his own
show on many occasions.
During the war, Eddy, and his
accompanist, Theodore Paxton,
toured the USO circuit, entertain-
ing men in army camps in Brazil,
Africa. Arabia, Egypt and Persia.
Tickets for the Sunday concert
can be purchased at the Choral
Union office in Burton Tower.

BUT WE WERE leaving Paris
the following day and we couldn't
"leave without eating there."
We asked to see the manager.
When we stepped off the eleva-
tor into the restaurant and
caught a. glimpse of the rich
simple setting we used our char-
acteristic American bazeness
and asked for our reservation.
The ruse succeeded. The Tour
d'Argent is too fine a place to ac-
cuse a potential patron of being a
WE HAD TO wait a short time,
but it was well worth it.
Delightful music played from
some remote source, loud enough
to make you aware it was there,
soft enough not to be distract-
ing. Waiters flocked around us
like an army of attendants.
The food was superb, consisting
of innumerable courses from
chilled cantaloupe for an appetiz-
er to soup, fish, pressed duck
which is the house's specialty, a
half dozen side dishes, salad and
crepe suzettes for dessert.
THE MEAL WAS served by
three waiters. Two wine stewards
poured the sparkiing beverage
everytime our glasses were emp-
tied. A fourth waiter fried the
crepe suzettes in brandy and
served the steaming delicacy. This
was French service at its best.
The complete dinner took us
more than two hours to con-
sume. Yet, we never felt over-
stuffed or were eager for the
meal to terminate.
When the time came to pay our
bill-which amounted to close to
15 dollars a piece-it didn't hurt
us in the least bit to part with that
WE HAD EATEN at the Tour
d'Argent and it had been food like
nothing we had ever tasted. -
Memil's was all right for every
day and for that peculiar life and
color that is typically Paris, but
the Tour d'Argent is Paris too, the
other side, and it was fine for once
in a while.

N.Y. Red Trial
(Continued from Page 1)
Included in this list are the
"Conmmunist Manifesto," Len-
in's "Imperialism" and "State
Revolution," and Stalin's "Foun-
dations of Lenin" and "Prob-
lems of Leninism."
Pickets still appear sporadically
in Foley Square, a miniature park
directly across from the Federal
Court Building, protesting one or
another aspect of the trial.
They have been especially
prominent on days following a rul-
ing of contempt of court by Judge
Harold Medina against a defend-
ant or lawyer.
Defense lawyers are convinced
that, apart from the unconstitu-
tionality of the Smith Act (which
is the basis for the Grand Jury in-
dictment on which the case is be-
ing tried), the record is shot
through with reversible error.
* * *
SO THEIR plans are for a con-
viction now, followed by a rever-
sal .by the Supreme Court.
Part of the appeal for a re-
versal is expected to rest on de-
fense evidence to prove that
Russell Janney, one of the jur-
ors, was not qualified to serve
on the jury.
Defense motions have been en-
tered, and refused, to have Jan-
ney dismissed from the jury, on
the grounds that a speech he
made in Macon, Ga. on cpmmu-
nism proves that he was prej-
udiced against the defendants at
the time he was called for jury
To back this charge, the defense
refers to an article in the Macon
"Telegraph" quoting Janney as
saying he was for "a war to the
death against communism."
