MUSIC, LANGUAGES, WRITING:
Classical Studies Professor Has Varied Talents

.

*EIS&DS

$y ANN LIU
An outstanding man of varied
talents aptly describes Prof: Bru-
no Meinecke of the Dept. of Classi-
cal Studies.
He is an author, violinist, pian-
ist, organist, orchestra conductor,
composer, professor and origina-
tor of a number of University
courses.
Prof. Meinecke began his studies
of ancient languages and music at
an early age under the direction
of his father who followed the
tradition of old German families
by fostering the study of the clas-
sics and the arts in his family.
'Grew Up With Music'
As a result, "Music is part of
my daily life. I grew up with it
and I play every day and never
miss," he said.
"My major composition is 'Vio-
lin Concerto in G Minor' based on
Virgil's 'Aeneid.' I wanted to ex-
press the pure melody of that
great author and this is the man-
ner I chose."
This work was published in 1951
by Friedrich Hofmeister in Ger-
many. Under Prof. Meinecke's
transcription and harmonization,

PROF. BRUNO MEINECKE
"... Music is part of my daily life."

"A strikingly good movie. The ac-

PREMINGER'S direction!"
--William K. Zinsser,

an Academy Award
Frank Sinatra

together with the original Greek
and an English translation, he
published "The Golden Lyre of
Pindar."
Hehas also published other
studies and research on Greek and
Roman music.
Words Not Accurate
"Sometimes I feel words cannot
adequately describe the way I feel
so I turn to music," he said.
Because of his belief in a crea-
tive life, Prof. Meinecke chose
teaching as his vocation. He point-
ed out that "one could make a
small fortune in selling real estate
or insurance in just a few years,
if that is what you want, but I
have never had money as my main
goal. If I had it to do over, I can
honestly say I would do the same
thing," he remarked.
Prof. Meinecke began his teach-
ing career in an East Liverpool,
O., high school. He has served as
head of the Classics Department
in Lutheran Ladies' College, Minn.;
Midland College, Kan.; Hope Col-
lege, Mich.; and Carleton College,
Minn.

In each of these colleges he also
taught music and appeared in
numerous concerts and recitals as
soloist and conductor.
AtiCarleton College, in addition
to being head of the Latin depart-
ment he was also director of the
Conservatory of Music. Prof. Mein-
ecke has been a professor in the
University Classical department
for about 35 years.
Prof. Meinecke believes "stu-
dents should learn that they can't
lead an academic life alone and
that the faculty is there to help.
Most of them are sincere and want
to get to know the students."
Has Time For Research
Although lectures, composing,
concerts, teaching, and being a
family man has kept Prof. Mein-
ecke busy, he has found time to
do much research in ancient and
medieval medicine. He is author of
a number of special studies deal-
ing with the history of medicine.
"I am planning to write further
works on the history of medicine
including a work on Hippocrates
and medicine," he said.

Continuous
Shows
From 1 P.M.

Because of his interest in ancient
medicine, he has developed a num-
ber o fspecial courses here which
deal with medicine, Latin and
Greek.
"The foundation of our Western
civilization depends on the Greeks
and Romans, not only in litera-
ture proper, but in science as
well," he stated. "For example,
Greeks were the originators of
medicine. The Romans took over
and perpetuated it together with
the terminology upon which we
base our present scientific terms."
He continued by saying that
Latin is definitely integrated
with world literature, especially
throughout the miedieval period.
Prof. Meinecke is also the auth-
or of a number of Latin books.
Since the professor is 69 years
old, according to the University
ruling this is his last year at the
University, but he is "very much
out of sympathy with the retire-
ment rule as it has been enforced
in the last number of years."
He continued by saying "I feel
definitely that some men are 69
at 39, but others are 39 at 69. I'm
one of the latter. After all, it takes
a lifetime to learn some things and
I still have many things to do. If
a person is still able and wants to
teach, he should be allowed to do
so.''
Prof. Meinecke is a member of
Phi Kappa Phi, the American
Philological Association, the Med-
ieval Academy, the Classical As-
sociation of " the Atlantic States
and the Classical Association of
the Middle West and South.

(Author of "Barefoot BoV With Cheek," etc.)
HUSBANDS, ANYONE?
It has been alleged that coeds go to college for the sole purpose
of finding husbands. This is, of course, an infamous canard, and
I give fair warning that small and spongy as I am, anybody who
ever says such a dastardly thing when I am around had better
be prepared for a sound-hiding!
Girls go to college for precisely the same reasons as men do:
to broaden their horizons, to lengthen their vistas, to drink at the
fount of wisdom, to trail their fingers in the main currents of
American thought. But if, by chance, while a girl is engaged in
these lofty pursuits, a likely looking husband should pop into
view, why, what's wrong with that? Eh? What's wrong with
that?
The question now arises, what should a girl look for in a hus-
band? A great deal has been written on this subject. Some say
character is most important, some say background, some say
appearance, some say education. All are wrong.
The most important thing - bar none - in a husband is health.
Though he be handsome as Apollo and rich as Captain
McCutchen, what good is he if he just lays around all day
accumulating bedsores?
h j 41 ' T KJ##.
The very first thing to do upon meeting a man is to make sure
that he is sound of wind and limb. Before he has a chance to
beguile you with his wit and charm, slap a thermometer in his
mouth, roll back his eyelids, yank out his tongue, palpate his
thorax, rap his patella, ask him to straighten out a horseshoe
with his teeth. If he fails to pass these few basic tests, phone
for an ambulance and go on to the next prospect.
If, however, he turns out to be physically fit, proceed to the
second most important requirement ifta husband. I refer to a
sense of humor.
A man who can't take a joke is a man to be shunned. There are
several simple tests to find out whether your prospect can take
a joke or not. You can, for example, slash his tires. Or burn his
"Mad" comics. Or steal his switchblade. Or turn loose his pet
raccoon. Or shave his head.
After each of these merry pranks, laugh gaily and shout
"April Fool!" If he replies, "But this is November 28," or some-
thing equally churlish, cross him off your list and thank your
lucky stars you found out in time.
But if he laughs silverly and calls you "Little minx!" then
put him to the next test: Find out whether he is gentle.

The easiest, quickest way to ascertain his gentleness is, of
course, to look at the cigarette he smokes. Is it mild? Is it
