SUNDAY. MAY 9, 1950

Byron Janis Praises Student Audiences,

Navy Students See Base

(EDITOR'S NOTE: Following is the
last in a series of articles covering
this year's May Festival.)

"A university audience is one of
the best audiences you can play
before. I think most of them are
really enthusiastic." A university
audience "has a certain freshness.
It is not overly sophisticated."
Interviewed yesterday, Byron
Janis, featured soloist in tonight's
concluding concert of the 1956 May
Festival, said in addition to being
"greatly enthusiastic," university
audiences tend to be "greatly criti-
cal'." This, he stated, is because
"they know the music very well."
Audience Personality
Janis, internationally renowned
concert pianist, claims, "Every
audience differs slightly. When
you are on the stage, the audience
develops a personality and becomes
one to you. University audiences,
in general, are similar, but some,"
he said, "are better than others.
"What you think is a lack of
enthusiasm on the part of the
audience may really be a surface
lack of enthusiasm. Some audi-
ences may appreciate something
more than others. However," one
must consider "the method of de-
monstrating appreciation." This,
he said, is something'to "consider
with regard to all audiences."
American Enthusiasm
Janis mentioned that some Euro-
pean audiences are not quite
as enthusiastic in demonstrating

pathetic. He lets you do what you
want to do. It is very thrilling
to work with him."
Philadelphia Orchestra
In speaking about the orchestra,
Janis stated "The Philadelphia
Orchestra, as far as I am con-
cerned, is the greatest orchestra
in the world." He mentioned that
European musicians who visit
America and attend concerts by
the Philadelphia Orchestra come
away saying "That is the orches-
tra to hear."
Janis also commented on the
Festival, "I enjoy playing where
I know music is being performed"
for several days in a row. 'to-
night's concert, Janis said, "is
something I've been looking for-
ward to."
For tonight's concert, Janis is
scheduled to play Rachmaninoff's
"Concerto No, 3 in D minor." This
concerto, he said, is one of the
most difficult concertos to perform.
'Talent and Work'
Rachmaninoff wrote the con-
certo for his American tour of
1909, "It is rhapsodic in form
and is difficult for orchestra,"
Janis said. "It has every variety
of technical difficulty."
In concluding yesterday's inter-
view, Janis mentioned that the best
advice for a young pianist is
"work. Talent is necessary, but.
you have to work."

their approval as those of Latin I delphia Orchestra. "There is no

America. University audiences in
America, on the other hand, "are
very enthusiastic."
Janis praised Maestro Eugene
Ormandy, conductor of the Phila-

playing with Mr. Ormandy and
the Philadelphia Orchestra." Or-

great Lakes
Supply Depot
A small group of NROTC stu-
dents of the University took a short
trip the other weekend, from the
Naval Air Station at Grosse Ile to
the one at Glenview, Ill.
Object of their plane flight was
the U.S. Naval Supply Depot at
Great Lakes, Ill. Accompanying
them was their instructor, Prof.
Wesley W. Van Malsen, of the
Naval Science Department.
In the air, a co-pilot instructed
them in the use of their para-
chutes. Just to be on the safe
side, one of the NROTC boys wore
his parachute throughout the trip
over Lake Michigan.
At Glenview, the men in blue
were taken by bus to the Depot,
the object of their visit.
Most of the students' visit was
spent at the Activity, including a
full day's work Friday, from 8:30
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Their evenings
were free daily,, and with the city
of Chicago nearby, there was no
problem of what to do with them.
At the Depot, the NROTC men
saw its workings from top to bot-
They saw the laundry, the offi-
cers' club, the general mess, the
warehouses, storage, stowage, ma-
chine accounting, and other facili-
ties at the command.
Students also got a preview of
their future when they saw newly
recruited men in their new uni-
forms, with the last remnants of
their civilian life-their old clothes
-in their arms.
One of the facilities of the cen-
ter intrigued oneuof the NROTC
students in particular.
"In the cafeteria," he said, "they
give you all you want to eat. You
get two great big pieces of meat,
and you can come back for more.
They have a milk dispenser where
you can take all you want.
"It was lunch, and it only cost
45 cents," he added.
