Gotham Mayor
Shows Talent
As Conductor
BROOKLYN, N. Y., Aug. 15. - ('P)
- The mayor is become, amid great
applause, a maestro.
With the wave of a wand in the
music grove of Prospect park Tues-
day night, Fiorello La Guardia became
probably the first and only -and
maybe the last - band-master mayor
in the United States.
Twelve thousand persons heard his'
interpretation of Sousa's "Stars and
Stripes Forever," with the Edwin
Franko Goldman band doing the play-
ing and the cheering was terrific and
prolonged. Mr. La Guardia, whose list
of "M" titles now is Major-Mayor-
Maestro, functioned so well, indeed,
that he was recalled for bows.
To the average ear, Maestro ┬░La
Guardia's reading of the Sousa score
was entirely satisfying. He got the
boys off practically simultaneously,
and he held them in tempo with a
vigorous up-and-down beat, such as
Sousa himself used to employ. If any-
thing, the mayor was more enthu-
siastic at his chore and the musicians
forgot any personal political differ-
ences they may have had with the
mayor, and gave wholeheartedly of
their lung reserve.
One spectator, presumably a Tam-
many spy, quibbled over the mayor's
handling of some of the passages,
sneering at use of the left hand to
obt.in certain pianissimo effects, but
this was obviously nothing more than
an attempt to drag a political herring
across the mayor's musical trail.
Maestro La Guardia put on, his
glasses before starting, and this con-
vinced the audience that he actually
was reading the notes. The only ele-
ment of doubt on this point developed
when the mayor flung his arms sharp-
ly, indicating that a violent fortissimo
was to ensue immediately, and the re-
sponse was only a dainty humming of
flutes.

Figures of men drawn in rigid line painted this solemn but striking scene as Chancellor Adolf Hitler of
Germany (in circle) delivered the funeral oration for the late President Paul von Hindenburg at impressive
services at Tannenberg memorial. The coffin may be seen in the foregound, and behind the chancellor is the
slender bronze cross marking the grave of Germany's twenty unknown soldiers killed in the World War. Back-
ground of the scene is the wall of the huge memorial commemorating the war hero's victory over Russia.
