Cites Storm Description From

as Example.
Illustrating with orchestral music
of Beethoven, Wagner, Rossini and
Sass6n from the phonographic rec-
ords, Professor Earl V. Moore show-
ed how wind, water and fire were
used as elements in Music in a lec-
ture at the Natural Science audi-
torium yesterday.
The classic description of a storm
from the Pastoral symphony of
Beethoven who is commonly known
as a composer of strictest and not
of a painter or narrator was given
by Professor Moore. "It is almost a
theatrical and idealistic storm, in
which is pictured the mood of the
group, the description and narra-
Rtion of joyful feelings," Professor
Moore said.
Lauds Tell Overture
"A violent and vigorous storm of
the Swiss mountains is in the Wil-
┬░liam Tell Overture," which Profes-
sor Moore said, "is good and popu-
lar music, with genius in its every
measure." This was illustrated by
a record and explained during the
"By the time of Rossini technique
of musical expression had so far
developed that the storm as pic-
tured by him is more realistic, more
direct," Professor Moore said, "and
more concentrated and with more
melody and thrill."
Calls Wagner Realistic
"In the second opera of Wagner
the storm becomes almost natural,"
Professor Moore explained, "it is
irregular like a storm and comes
nearest to realism."
"Sasson in his carnival of the an-
imals can be heard picturing the
aquarium, the reflections a n d
changes in the water, the undulat-
ing motion or the placidity of the
confined water, limpid and cooling
in its effects is easily recognized,"
Professor Moore said and then on
the phonographic record played the
composition so that even the curv-
ing and glancing motion of fish

SOUTHAMPTON, July 6.-- Big
Bill Tilden, making an unexpected
start in the singles play of the
Medal club invitation tournament
less than 24 hours after his return
