Dear Drs. Wfle:
What I want to know on hot
muggy days like these is what
makes flies crawl on people. Last
night (Thursday) I arrived home
rather late and consequently de-
cided to catch a little much-need-
ed repose this morning (Friday).
But from daylight on, the flies,
just simply would not let me alone.
They crawled on me until I actual-
ly had to pull the blanket over my
head, which was too hot to last
long, and so I had to get up final-
ly and sit in a chair. But there
they crawled on me, too; so I was
finally compelled to dress and go1
to the library to sleep. What can
I do to remedy this situation?
We have been thinking of offer-
ing a reward, Glotz, for the discov-
ery of something to make flies crawl
.elsewhere, for the problem has con-

Ernest Bloch won his introduc-
tion to the American public at
large in a somewhat unfortunate
light-as a prize winner: the au-
thor of the very meretricious rhap-
sody, America, which has seen two
performances in Ann Arbor.
Bloch is a more serious man than
that. Romain Rolland, struck by
the quality of his first symphony,
journeyed quickly to Geneva to find
the young composer. He found
him: climbing up to the ceiling of
his mother's shop to pile some
blouses for her. The story is fam-
Rolland: So you are Bloch,
the composer. And this is what
you do.
Bloch: Not all the time.
Rolland: Ah, then most of your
time you devote to your music?
Bloch: Oh, no, I lecture at the
University of Geneva.
Rolland: Splendid: on the his-
tory of music?
Bloch: No. On metaphysics. 3
