Unofficial Information From Capitol
Says Hatt on Cruiser Building
Assures Conclave
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, July 25.-Likeli-
hood of a preliminary naval limi-
tation conference by world powers
for next spring was being discussed
in governmental and diplomatic
quarters today upon study and com-
parison of the pronouncements in
that connection made yesterday by
President Hoover and Prime Min-
ister McDonald.
Official information on the subject
was entirely lacking. The White
House, state department and navy
department all refrained from com-
ment on a prospective forthcoming
international meeting referred to
by the British Prime Minister. Un-
official. views were expressed fre-
quently, however, that in postpon-
ing the construction of three cruis-
ers, President Hoover was looking
forward to such a gathering well
in advance of the closing of the
present fiscal year, June 30. By
that time the first five vessels au-
thorized by the 15 cruiser law must
be laid down unless an interna-
tional agreement on naval limita-
tions has been reached meanwhile.
The elaboration of Mr. Hoover's
announcement concerning the sus-
pension of work on part of this
year's building program was declin-
ed at the White House. His action
yesterday was in response to a
similar move in London by Mr.
MacDonald.
At the State department, Secgre-
tary Stimson defined the principle;
of parity of naval strength as
agreed on in a discussion between
Mr. MacDonald and Ambassador
Dawes to be respected by the
two governments. He said it,
meant an absolute equality of
fighting strength in the fleets of
the two nations, applying to all
categories of ships. It applied on-
ly to capital ships in accordance
with conclusion of the 1922 arms
conference.
One other member of the Cabinet
made a brief addition to official;
comment. Secretary Adams said
in response to questions of newspa-]
per correspondents that navy prep-t
arations, of detailed plans of the
cruisers will be continued, and that
no orders for material already
placed had been canceled. He de-l
clined to amplify. I

MODERN COMPOSITION
TRENDS SHOW REVOLT
IN MUSICTRAITIONS
E. V. MOORE CLAIMS NEW MEN
AIM AT DESIGN AND
. CONCENTRATION
INFLUFNCED BY BALLET
Illustrates Talk with Selections
Drawn from Russian, French,
and German Authors
Condensation and staggering con-
centration as opposed to the logi-
cal and traditional treatment in
developing phrases and themes is
the outstanding thing in modern
music was the expressed opinion of
Prof. Earl V. Moore, Musical Direc-
tor of the University School of
Music, in the 5 o'clock lecture
"Present Tendencies in Modern
Composition," yesterday afternoon
in Natural Science auditorium.-
For some people music stops with
Beethoven, for others, with Brahms,
still others concede artistry to
Strauss, while a very few will lis-
ten to Prokofief and Strawinski.
Most people pass off the moderns
with a smile or term them face-
tious authors of "atrocities." There
is, nevertheless, a certain amount
of experimentation carried on at
this time that is commendable and
it is -for this reason that Professor
Moore believes that musical clubs,
such as Pro-Musica, do much to
familiarize the populace with new
ideas and are an aid in further-
ing the experimentation.
Composition and Ballet
In explaining the tendencies of
modernism in the musical field
then, Professor Moore attempted
merely to discover common ideas
and aims, which lead him to con-
clude that modern music "arises
from a desire to express more viv-
idly the complexities of modern life
and to enlarge the vocabulary of
effects." At the same time there
is a growing tendency toward the
architectural design rather than
that of harmony, rhythm, and mel-
ody as is seen by the fact that
the most accredited of the mod-
ern compositions are by those men
who have either composed ballet
music or who have access to a
good ballet. Here the idea is that
the music, in becoming almost an
accompaniment, is able to express
abstractions and moving designs
with more ease and originality. In-
deed the general tendency is the
breaking downy of tradition in har-
mony and rhythm, to get as far
away from them as possible and
yet retain dynamic force and sig-
nificance.

Committee Occasioned Action;
Effective August 1
WAS MEMBER SINCE 1915
Having served as a member of
the teachers' retirement fund board
since the enactment of the first
law in 1915, Dean J. B. Edmonson
of the University School of Educa-
.tion submitted his resignation to
Gov. Fred W. Green yesterday.
Dean Edmonson's action was in-
fluenced by several conditions. Pri-
marily though the dean was appre-
hensive that in view of his recent
appointment to the national com-
mittee on the reorganization of the
educative activities of the govern-.
ment as outlined by President
Hoover, he would no longer be able
to devote sufficient time to the
Lansing work. Particularly was
this anticipation to be considered
in view of the recent corrective leg-
islation in respect to the teachers'
retirement fund. The dean feared

Foreign Student Says Dormitory
Offers View Of American Life

EDITOR'S NOTE-This is the fourth of
a series of interviews with women on the cam-
pus concerning their views on the forthcom-
ing new dormitories for women. The articles
will appear from time to time during the re-
miainder of the Summer Session.
Discussing the influence which
dormitory life has had upon the
foreign woman who has come to
an American university, Tomo
Tambe, '30, said, "I do not under-
stand how -a foreign student could
get into contact with your life if
she did not live in a dormitory.
"We foreign students have come
to America not only to study in
the classroom, but to observe
American customs as well," was
Miss Tambe's comment. "When we
arrive, we are practically ignorant
of your ways. The dormitory fur-
nishes us a place in which we can
come into contact with many girls,
and gives us an opportunity to
study your mode of living.
"The director of a dormitory un-
derstands our lack of acquaintance
with American life, and takes pains;
to see that we are made to feel at
home, and that we meet girls whoI
will become our friends. In a dor-
mitory, because of the large num-
-ber of residents, one can always
find people who are in sympathy
with the foreign students. In a3
smaller group. such a symnathy

"The gathering of the large
group in the dining room each eve-
ning gives us further opportunity
to learn customs, and to hear the
conversations which go on around.
us. This nightly gathering is one
of the most effectivemethods of
studying American ways at first
hand, and is one of the many ways
in which the dormitory helps us
in establishing ourselves," Miss
Tambe continued.
American national customs, such
as the observing of Thanksgiving
and the celebratiag of Hallowe'en,
according to Miss Tambe, become
familiar when one lives in a large
group which, as a body, joins in
mutual celebration. Faculty din-
ners and house dances contribute
to a more thorough understanding
of American life.
"The dormitory pro-week and its
accompanying initiation gather the
students into the group, and make
them feel a part of the University
life. Those who live in small groups
are less likely to encounter such
methods of assimilation," Miss
Tambe said.
"When foreign students do not
live in dormitories," Miss Tambe
concluded. "there is the tendenev

Innovations
To replace these losses of the
traditional treatment there is evi-
dent a trend toward the repetition
of small rhythmic or melodic pat-
terns varying in the full tone and
the diatonic scales, streams of
chords as found in Strawinski's
"Fire-Bird," andassymetry, as in
_the "Petrushka" ballet. Even Wag-
ner, forty years ago, innovated byt
the superimposition of motifs,
which is found in the March of theI
Holy Grail in "Parsifal."
Debussy, Strawinski, the enfant
terrible of modern music with his
brutal chord harmonies, Prokofief,
with his fistfuls of notes hurled in-
discriminately through the "Loves
of the Three Oranges," the Jupiter
from Holst's' "Planets" symphony,
and the mellow stream -of chords
of the "Appollo Musagetes," all
were carefully analyzed as types
of endeavor. As a'surprise Pro-
fessor Moore played part of the
symphonic tone-poem by Honne-
ger, "Pacific 231," as the expression
of an experience that was real and
hard, rather than musical.
