Viola Enthusiast . ..
To The Editor:
A few evenings ago some
friends and I happened to attend
a concert sponsored by the Cercle
Francais. The entire program was
unusually delightful and we were
very much impressed with the ar-
tistry of both the violist and the
pianist. The concert was of parti-

cular illLt'I' l to m' beause I ha1d
nev'r b-for "'erd a whole pro-
grain w ith the viola as a solo in-
struent. I .1fond hatiltthe viola
has a rich mellow tone, with var-
ied enough possibilities to make it
and excellent choice for solo work.
Why thcen isn't it used in this
manner more often? Thele has
been good music written for vi-
ola. On questioning a musical
friend on the subject, I find that
is just isn't the style. I vote for
initiating a new style. This friend
further told me that twenty years
ago solo cello concerts were almost
unheard of in America and now
a days are a common occurence.
Eo perhaps there is some hope
that. the viola will have its day

W ASHINGTON - The idea oft
Congress repealing the law of
gravity is an old joke. Neverthe-t
less, the Senate is actually study-
ing what laws may be needed to
regulate man-made hurricanes.
The issue was brought up by
General Electric which asked Con-1
gress to exempt the company froml
damage suits for any wind, hail or1
rain storms it may cause.
General Electric is dead ser-
ious about this. For it has a con-
tract with the Navy to conduct
weather-making experiments in
the mountains near Schenec-
tady, N.Y. and wants to make
sure it is not held responsible
in case a bad storm is brewed.
The Navy appealed to Congress
on behalf of General Electric,
warning that its experiments "may
cause certain weather conditions
-rain, snow, hail and even in
some instances may develop hur-
ricanes and other high wind
This worried Senator Harley
Kilgore, West Virginia Democrat,
who called a hearing of his judi-
ciary subcommittee, nervously
asked about the danger of start-
ing a hurricane.
Earl Dressler, meteorologist forJ
the Office of Naval Research, ex-
plained: "We have found that in
seeding the cumulous-type cloud
that causes tornado or thunder-
storms, different results have come
about. Sometimes the cloud will
dissipate from the sky. So it is
very possible that one of the things
we may come out with is the
elimination of the tornado or the
elimination of hail from the coun-
Relieved at this, Kilgore went
on to another problem. He was
suspicious that General Electric
might learn how to control the
weather, then patent the proc-
"The next thing you know,"
he snorted, "General Electric will
have this whole thing patented,
and we will pay them a royalty
every time we turn around. It has
been my experience with General
Electric, Bell Research, Westing-
house . . . That they spend our
money and then turn around and
patent the results and they soak
us for it."
"If they could break the spell
of weather we have just been hav-
ing, Senator, I would be willing to
contribute," suggested the Navy's
Captain Chester Ward.
"I do not like to pay twice,"
grunted Kilgore.
Meanwhile, General Electric
must go on experimenting with
the weather at its own risk. Con-
gress will not pass a law-at this
Despite the North Atlantic Pact,
ex-Congressman Maury Maverick
found President Truman quite
Mexican-minded when he called at
the White House the other day.
"It looks as if you folks in
Washington have your eyes so
focused on Europe that you can't
see south of the border," Mav-
erick told the President. "In
fact, it looks as if Mexico would
have to move over to Europe in
order to get any attention from
the U.S.A."
Mr. Truman listened carefully,
took notes copiously. He showed
surprising knowledge of things
south of the border.
"I certainly agree that we can't
neglect our friends in Latin Amer-
ica," he told Maverick, and point-
ed out that he personally had
taken two trips to Brazil and

to facilitate the sale of beef from
a friendly neighbor, Mexico, rather
than from an unfriendly dictator-
ship, Argentina.
Tempers are as hot as the tem-
peratures these days on Capitol
Hill, with usual parliamentary po-
liteness broken by flashes of anger.
Two sparring partners, often
at each other's throats, are Sen-
ate majority leader Scott Lucas
of Illinois and Senator Pat Mc-
Carran of Nevada, both Demo-
crats. It's got to a point where
they don't even take the trouble
to expunge their heated remarks
from the record.
Latest flareup was over funds
for the watchdog committee sup-
posed to keep an eye on the Mar-
shall Plan. Created by the Repub-
licans, the committee is now
chairmanned by McCarran, and
when Lucas argued that the com-
mittee was costing too much
money,uthe Senator from Nevada
flared up.
"I think it would be well," he
piped, "for the Senator from Illi-
nois to have some conception of
the law before he says this com-
mittee is trying to branch out
all over the world."
"I thank the able Senator
from Nevada for that last con-
tribution of his," purred Lucas,
in a voice as sticky as molasses.
"I well know what a distin-
guished lawyer he is."'
"I did not ask the Senator for
that," snapped McCarran.
"I am not giving itto him be-
cause I like the Senator from
Nevada, and he is a great lawyer,"
Lucas replied, sweetly. "I would
not, under any circumstances, at-
tempt to compete with the great
legal ability he exercises on the
floor of the Senate."
At this the Nevadan puffed up
and exploded: "The sarcasm of
the Senator from Illinois . . ."
But Lucas cut him off with a
sharp: "I did not yield for that."
"The Senator was addressing me
personally," squeaked McCarran.
"Will he not yield?"
"I decline to yield. I hope the
Senator understands it!"
snapped the majority leader.
"I do understand it!" yelled Mc-
Finally Wisconsin's Alexander
Wiley, leader of the weekly wor-
ship hour for spiritual-minded
Senators, broke in.
"Peace, brethren, peace!" he

The natural gas lobby seems to
have concluded that John L. Lewis
is not the only controller of fuel
who can strike. In Telegrams to
Congressmen, the lobby has
threatened to shut off the nation's
natural gas -- unless Congress
passes a bill exempting indepen-
dent producers from Federal reg-
The warning was sent to
members of the House Com-
merce Committee just before
they were scheduled to meet on
the bill. Signed by Richard Wag-
ner, president of the Chicago
corporation-a holding company
which holds the purse strings
to many natural gas companies
-the telegram said:
"We are convinced that failure
to pass (this) bill would mean
hardship to consumers generally,
as most producers are determined
to avoid any sale in interstate
commerce until the natural gas
act is clarified."
This threatened strike by pro-
ducers is the climax of a long.
