Local Shop Brings Out
Printing of Three 13's
By JOHN NEUFELD
Are you looking for a copy of
the complete works of the "Three
A local printing establishment
has undertaken to reprint all of
Bach, Beethoven and Brahms.
* * *
BACH, WHO is the oldest of the
three composers, was the first on
the list, and has 46 volumes devot-
ed to him. Beethoven, who came
next, was ready this summer, with
Johannes Branms, the last of
the "Three B's," will be out next
winter, with 26 volumes.
A photo-lithographic process is
used to copy the original editions,
which appeared in Germany over
a number of years.
The Bach Society in Leipzig, for
instance, took from 1851 to 1890
to finish its task of publishing
authoritative scores of the master.
One of Germany's oldest music
houses brought out the standard

Launching of a co-operative re-

The immediate object of the
project to be conducted at the
California observatory will be the
obtainment of a complete record
of the infra-red spectrum.
TWO LONG - RANGE studies
will also be carried out to supple-
ment and check information gain-
ed in solar observations made at
the University's McMath-Hulbert
Observatory near Pontiac.
The,project has involved the in-
stallation of an infra-red spectro-
meter on a solar telescope at the
Mt. Wilson Observatory. '.i

COPIES OF THESE editions be-
came increasingly rare, and in the
War, many of the original plates
were destroyed. Joseph W. Ed-
wards, owner of the lithoprinting
shop, says that $2,000 was paid for
the last set of Bach sold before
the war. It was shipped here by
way of Russia, but shipments were
Then Edwards was approach-
ed by the music division of the
Library of Congress, the Ameri-
can Musicological Society and
other national music groups, to
republish those works..
Edwards had published a 167-
volume Library of Congress cata-
logue, but had put out no music
except Alfred Einstein's Mozart
index and the Fitzwilliam Vir-

Edwards also used specially
prepared paper which can stand
the test of time better than
other kinds. He says that the
deterioration of ordinary paper
is caused by slight alkalinity or
acidity of the paper itself and
that his paper is neutral.
In order to get the best-pre-
served copies, Edwards borrowed
original Bach volumes from four
libraries, among them the Univer-
sity's music library.
The reproduction sets are of-
fered to subscribers. After that,
the remaining copies are sold
"over the counter." Brahms will
probably sell for $160.
Most of the copies are bought
up by libraries and musicians in
this country. Dollar shortages lim-
it sales to other countries.

"Live" music is being performed
at the University practically all
the time, all sorts of music for
all sorts of instruments, for all
sorts of people.
Besides the nationally known
soloists and orchestras who come
to Hill Auditorium, the music
school has a year-around schedule
of student and faculty recitals, as
well as many special programs.
* * *
A TOTAL of 138 concerts and
recitals were presented by the
School of Music during the year
from July 1, 1948 to June 30, 1949.
This number does not include
the Choral Union or the May
Student recitals far outnumber
faculty recitals. Student recitals
are usually given as a require-
ment for the degree of bachelor
or master in music. Some musicol-
ogy and music education students
can give a recital in lieu of writ-
ing a thesis.
* * *
THE STUDENT can select his
program himself, but it must be
approved by faculty members be-
fore the public performance. Some
standard works are usually in-
cluded. Students generally want
to have their recitals as late as
possible, thus causing a heavy
accumulation of programs toward
the end of the term.
Most of the soloists are pianists,
singers or violinists, according to
Mrs. Dorothy W. Sparks, music
school recorder. Some instruments
are hai'dly ever heard in solo re-
This summer, for instance, the
first cello recital in many years
was given, and the tuba recital
was the first in the history of
One of the biggest problems,
according to Mrs. Sparks, is to
find available places for giving
concerts. The Rackham Assembly
Hall and Lecture Hall are often
used, but only by graduates and

Organ recitals are held in Hill
Faculty recitals get more pub-
licity and draw bigger audiences
than student recitals. Publicity
for student recitals is often limited
to announcements in the D.O.B.
and the forwarding of a program
to the performer's home town by
the University News Service.

try camp, according to Col. Karl
E. Henion, professor military sci-
ence and tactics.
Judging was based on discipline,
attitude, conduct of training and
