BOOBY TRAPS:
Critics Place in Music
Reviewed by Thomson

I IFIE

; I

Iv D'AVITT KAPLTAN

"I am not sure whether or not
a reviewer is a service to music,"
Virgil Thomson, composer and
music-critic commented yesterday.
Thomson lectured on "Memoirs
of a Music Critic" at the opening
session of the Midwestern Music
Conference being held here this
weekend.
"Haydn's and Mozart's careers
went along nicely without critics,"
Thomson added. "Criticism is only
interesting to the artists when it
is favorable. Many artists consid-
er reviews as booby traps to their
careers."
Former Critic
As former music critic for the
New York Herald Tribune for 14
years, Thomson looks back on his
post with "little feeling of sin in
writing about music or talking
about it. Reviewing is like a game
which I have every right to give up
in my 50's."
Thomson was assisted in his
work by a secretary. Looking 'back
on her job, he wias "impressed by
the fact that American institutions
are run by women secretaries.
Mine always sent the favorable
letters to my bosses, and their sec-
retaries always sent favorable
notes of praise back."
As a reason for his observation,
Thomson said that "men get ner-
vous and important. Women have
a sense of good housekeeping and
loyalty to the institution and men
they are working for."1
He lived in Paris, France fromi
1925 to 1940, with a few trips to4
the United States in between.
"After hearing other people's mu-
sic in this country when I playedl
a church organ or taught, it wasc
nice to go to Paris. It's a painter's1
town and I could work on my mu-
sic," Thomson explained.

After 1940, when Thomson re-
turned to the United States and
assumed his post on the Herald
Tribune, his name hac' "some news
value. Conductors wrote me let-
ters asking which of my works I
wanted them to play."
Immortality Machine
Recordings were made of his
works, and scores were published.
"It's all part of what I call the
Immortality Machine," Thomson
noted. "You are invited to give lec-
tures or conduct, professorships
are offered to you and honorary
degrees are bestowed upon you."
"I have grown to dislike being a
public figure for after a while one
begins to believe it."

TWO-STORY addition to the
present planned addition of the
on will be sent to the Regents
approval soon.
roundwork for the added
Idings was broken earlier in the
r and basic construction was
in Oct. 30, after ground-
aking ceremonies and dedica-

The cost for this is estimated at
$2,900,000 and is expected to be
finished by next year. '
If the outside shell for two more
stories could be completed now,
the cost for these added stories
would be lessened, according to
Frank C. Kuenzel, general manag-
er of the Union.

-Daily-John Hirtzel
This recent proposal would leave
the top stories interiorally unfin-
ished though they would be suit-
able for some purposes like art ex-
hibits, conferences, and so on, said
Kuenzel.
The interiors would be com-
pleted as soon as fund: were made
available.

Discussing the composer-critic
relationship, Thomson said that
"being a critic gets in the way of
being a composer. New York's mu-
sical press doesn't seem to push a
colleague. They are not unfair, but
neither do they pass gratuital or-
chids."
"As a reviewer," Thomson com-
mented, "I was interested in see-
ing what holds up the music be-
ing performed, or how it fails. I
was also interested in finding out
what is excellent or soft under the
foolish pretensions of the perform-
ing artist."
Managements Conspiracy
Thomson felt that the 57th
Street managers in New York are
trying to standardize music tastes
in America at a low level. As evi-
dence of conspiracy, Thomson
noted that good contemporary
American music is played by col-
lege orchestras and unwatched ra-
dio stations. The popularity is not
paralleled on stereotyped programs
of national symphonies and pro-
grams of major radio networks.

Gas Company
lo Hike Rates
Ann Arbor consumers will be af-
ected by an increase in wholesale
rices of natural gas, a representa-
ive of Michigan Consolidated Gas
o. announced yesterday.
The spokesman explained that
he, Panhandle Eastern Pipe Line
ompany, a major supplier for
Michigan Consolidated, had in-
reased its rates on Jan. 1 and
hat his company could not afford
o absorb the increase.
Michigan Consolidated, which
erves some 18,000 customers in
he Ann Arbor area has had a pe-
tion for a rate increase on file
ith the Federal Power Commis-
ion since November. As yet the
PC has not acted on the petition

Michigan Real Estate Program
Expected To Reach 1955 Peak

1,700 people are expected to
sign up for the University's state-
wide real estate program in Febru-
ary, bringing enrollment to a sev-
en-year peak.
Students satisfactorily complet-
ing eight out of 27 courses offered
will receive a final Certificate in
Real Estate from the University,
which offers the program through
the Extension Service with in-
struction under the supervision of
the School of Business Adminis-
tration.
The program, which has the full
cooperation of the Michigan Real
Estate Association and its boards
and the State Office of Vocational
Education, has granted 220 final
certificates for completion of the

eight course program, plus over
10,000 individual course certifi-
cates.
"It's not possible to accurately
gauge the success of the program
by the number, of final certificates
gained," according tohCharles H.
Sill, coordinator of the program
f or the Extension Service. He
pointedout that many people take
the courses only to help them in
their business or profession and
not to go on to be salesmen or
brokers in real estate.
He indicated that many large
business and insurance companies
have certain employes take courses
to upgrade their training and abil-
ity. He continued, "Once gained,
the certificates prove of consider-
able value. They help those al-
ready practicing real estate by
bringing them up to date on cur-
'rent trends and assist those just
starting out in acquiring better
positions."
"Certificate holders are admir-
ably equipped to take the state li-
censing examination for real es-
tate salesmen and brokers," Sill
stated.
Classes opening the second week
in February are scheduled for Ann
Arbor, Battle Creek, Detroit, Flint,
Grand Rapids, Lincoln Park, Mus-
kegon, Pontiac and Royal Oak.
