T 99.0.-

A new addition to the School of
Music faculty, Robert Courte, vio-
list, will add his talents to the
Stanley Quartet, replacing Paul
Doktor who has resigned.
Courte brings with him old-
world culture, having been born in
Holland and educated at the Con-
servatory of Brussels. In his work
at the conservatory he studied
with Leon Van Huot, former mem-
ber of the Eugene Ysaye Quartet
and professor of viola there.
COURTE LATER replaced his
former teacher on the teaching
staff at the Conservatory of Brus-
sels.
The violinist also helped form
the famous Paganini Quartet.
Appearing in the Gertler Quar-
tet, Courte has performed in con-
certs throughout Europe a n d
America. He has made the re-
cordings in this country.
Courte said that because of his
former concert tour with the
Paganini Quartet which brought
him to the University on two oc-
casions he felt right at home here
when he arrived to teach.
* * *
IN ADDITION TO his quartet
work, Courte has appeared in con-
certs as a solo violist, accompanied
by his wife, who is a pianist.
Courte and his wife did a ser-
ies of recitals on the Belgium
radio during the last war.
In comparing the two systems of
musical education - conservatory
versus university-Courte said he
favors the university because of
the broad aspects of its curricula.
He also thinks a musician should
have a broad education.
Prefering playing with a quar-
tet to solo work, Conte speaks
highly of the Stanley Quartet and
"the good musicianship of its
members." Michigan is one of the
few universities which has a string
quartet in residence, he said.
The University audience will get
a chance to hear Robert Courte
and the Stanley Quartet in the
first of their three summer con-
certs at Rackham Lecture Hall on
Tuesday, July 10.
Speech Clinic

defects caused by cleft palate, and
cerebral palsy.
Sixteen adults who have dyspha-
sia(a language difficulty due to a
brain injury) are enrolled in the
second program.
A training program for children
having speech defects will be held
from July 9 to Aug. 10. Enroll-
ments are still being accepted for
a special program for persons with
a hearing loss which will be held
from July 16 to July 27.

Science Tests
English Ability
of Foreigners
Testing the ability of a foreign
language speaker to pronounce
English can now be done on a,
scientific basis, a University lin-,
guistic Forum was told' yesterday.
Prof. Robert Lado, assistant di-
rector of the University's English
Language Institute, reported on a
technique which he has been de-
veloping.
* * *
THE. TECHNIQUE eliminates
most of the guess-work which for-
merly had to be used in finding
out how well a person seeking to
learn the language could pro-
nounce English, he said.
Lists of contrasting English
speech sounds have been develop-
ed, which can be given in the form
of multiple choice tests to foreign
language speakers, particularly
those intending to learn English.
The tests have an immediate
practical application at the Eng-
lish Language Institute, he report-
ed, since the results can be studied
to learn just what sounds. have to
be mastered by a person learning
English and those sounds which
can already be produced and re-
cognized.
