its name from the Garden of Rid-

followers.

He has revealed many books which
Baha'is believe contain the blue-
print for civilization today.

ha'is inAmerica, with one small
group located in Ann Arbor and
another in Ypsilanti.

IN DISCUSSING the campus

when the problem would re re-
solved. He said it was now being
worked on by the Student Affairs
Office and that the task of en-

large University police force,
On the topic of the Senate cap-
ital outlays bill of $1,300,000 Pres-
ident Hatchet said it was "quite

inadequate, as it does not meet
with the minimum needs of the
University and does not let us go
forward as rapidly as we would'like
to."
The University ought to receive
between four and five million dol-
lars a year, he said. "This would
not cripple the state financial con-
dition and is a sum that can be
spent to enable the University to
serve the demands to be made on
it."

Detroit Violist
Will Join Quartet
Violist Walter Evich of the De-r
troit Symphony will join the Stan-
ley Quartet in its second concert
of the semester at 8:30 p.m. to-
morrow in Rackham Lecture Hall.
Evich will accompany the cham-
ber music ensemble in Haydn's
"Quintet in C major." The Quar-
tet will also perform Beethoven's
"Quartet in C-sharp minor, Op.
131," and "Quartet No. 6" by Prof.
Ross Lee Finney of the music
school.E

IN EUROPE, he continued, it
is the general rule for all good
symphony conductors to be opera
conductors first because opera di-
rection is so much more complex!
than symphony conducting. Most
conductors begin as coaches in.
opera theaters, he explainea.

The Austrian-born conduc-
tor began his musical career at
the age of three when he learned
to play the piano. He attended
the Vienna State Academy of
Music and at 19 became an as-
sistant conductor in a Czecho-
slovakian opera house. Three
years later he rose to the position
of opera director.
For a short time he was director{
of the Vienna Conservatory of
Music. After conducting operas in
Germany and France, Blatt came
to the United States and has since
directed some of the major or-
chestras in the nation.
As assistant conductor of the
!Metropolitan Opera Company,
Blatt directed several perform-
ances in the Met's repertoire in-
cluding the 1951 popular revival
of "Die Fledermaus."
