Noehren To Play Max Reger Variations


The local music scene will en-
tertain a rare occasion this wee-
end when Prof. Robert Noehren,
University Organist, performs the
seldom heard "Variations and
Fugue on an Original Theme" Op.
73, by Max Reger, in the season's
final organ recital, at 4:15 p.m.
tomorrow in Hill Auditorium.
Accoriing to Prof. Noehren,
"Reger is considered the greatest
composer for organ since Bach in
his native Germany, but he is rel-
atively unknown in this country."
"HIS MUSIC bears the marks
of a strange paradox," Prof. Noeh-
ren continued. "His superb crafts-
manship as a contrapuntist and
colorist not only reflects an emo-
tional impact typical of his
times, but also his tremendous en-
thusiasm and taste for the music
of Mozart and the Baroque."
Prof. Noehren went on to say
that the most significant work
of Reger, who was born in 1813
and died in 1916, is the Varia-
tions and Fugue. "It is one of the
most powerful and exciting com-
positions ever written for or-
gan. But few performances of
it have been attempted sinee
It was long considered unplay-
able because of its formidable
technical difficulties."
ALSO ON tomorrow's program
will be Bach's Fantasia and
Fugue 'in G minor and Brahms'
Chorale Preludes.
Prof. Noehren first came to
the University in 1949. He has
studied organ with Gaston
Dehier and Lynnwood Farnam.
Well-known throughout the U.S.
and Canada, he has made three
concert tours of Europe. In ad-
dition he has made over fifteen
LP recordings.
An expert on organs, Prof.
Noehren has made extensive stu-
dies of old organs, which began
with a survey of French organs
built during the 17th and 18th
centuries. These studies were car-
ried on under the auspices of the
Carnegie Foundation.
HE HAS also made studies of
the extant organs in North Ger-
many built by Arp Schnitger, a
builder whose instruments Bach
played and praised. But Prof.
Noehren is especially interested in
the old Dutch organs, which date
back as far as 1520.
Prof. Noehren commented that
these "organs are still being play-
ed and are very beautiful." He has
seen and played over eighty old
organs built during the 16th, 17th,
and 18th centuries.
Admission to the concert is open
to the public without charge.
Rouff Skirts
Not CalfHiah
PARIS - (R) - A whole collec-
tion of lifted skirts was shown by
Maggy Rouff yesterday.
She raised some hemlines sharp-
ly. But none reached the top of the
calf, the high-water mark set by
Christian Dior.
The show was dominated by
widened shoulders and straight,
tight skirts- some so tight they
had to be slit for walking-and
the graceful princess or redingote
line, popular everywhere in the
new fashions.
A redingote silhouette nips in
sharply at the waist, boasts a small,
tight bodice and gored skirt flaring
to a wide hemline, but fitting over
the hips.
Even with shortened skirts, Rouff
managed togive her models a long,
lanky line by placing the waist-
line high. There were some real
empire effects, with the waist in-
dicated just below the bust. Many
dresses had well-fitted but un-
belted waists.

Reds Want 40
LONDON - (A) - Soviet Russia
has put in a bid to- buy about 40
small ships from British ship-
builders at a cost of many million
A Board of Trade spokesman
said Friday the British government
is considering the strategic impli-
cations of the Soviet orders, w Bich
have been spread among ship-
builders in England and Scotland.
The Board of Trade, which has
the final say on whether war po-
tential goods and materials should
be supplied to Communist nations,
has called for the advice of Ad-
miralty experts to establish wheth-
er the Russian orders-mainly for
factor.y and fishing vessels-will
breach the Allied embargo.
The Board of Trade refused to
disclose details of the Russian r-
ders--their estimated value, num-
ber of ships involved, size and

Union Blamed
.In Cancelling
Of AF Contract
JACKSON- (P) -Sparks-With-
ington Co. and its strikers disputed
yesterday over union cooperation
with the Air Force in releasing
completed Sabrejet gan charges.
Management, disclosed the Air

SickElms BeingSprayed

Dutch elm disease, a rare and
contagious diseas fatal to all elm
trees contracting it, is spreading
to forestry throughout Ann Arbor.
Yesterday, trucks carrying re-
cently purchased spray equipment
were viewed in the campus area
shootiig a fine mist of DDT on
elm trees. The spray kills elm bark
bettles, carriers of the disease.
THE LOCAL park commission and
State Department of Agriculture
survey crews are taking samples
of elm trees thought to be vic-
tims of the Dutch Elm disease. At
the present time, three trees in
Ann Arbor are known positively to
have the disease.
Samples of twenty trees
thought to be diseased are at
the present time being analyzed
by elm disease experts at Mich-
igan State College. Of these at
least 10 are thought to be posi-
tive fatalities.

Symptoms of the tree ailment
are Wilting leaves, discoloration of
leaves and stems and discolora-
tion under the bark. Samples of
symptomatic twigs are sent to
MSC headquarters for study. The!
method of discovering the pres-
ence of Dutch elm disease is plac-
ing the twig samples in a culture;
scrutiny under the microscope will
reveal the tree sickness' presence.
* , ,*
TO DATE, more than 1900 trees
have been sprayed in an effort to
prevent further contraction of the
incurable arbor ailment. The
DDT spray used is effective for a
3 month period, and re-spraying
must be repeated from time to
Only trees on public property are
sprayed, although the city does en-
courage private owners to spray
trees, especially in areas near a
diseased tree.

ualties were brought back to good
health, will be closed by the year's
Rep. . Shafer (R-Mich.) an-
nounced the proposed shutdown
yesterday. He said the Army sur-
geon generals office had decided
on the move as an economy meas-
ure in the -wake of the Korean
truce signing.

SAID MAJ. Gen. George E. Arm-
strong, the surgeon general:
"The number of patients be-
ing brought back from overseas
whose homes are in this Immed-
iate area is entirely too few to
warrant operating a small num-
ber of beds in so large a plant."
Gen. Armstrong also said there
was an insufficient number of
troops in the fifth army area to
warrant retention of the large off-
post hospital.
* * *
THE SURGEON general told
Rep. Shafer that all admissions,
except possibly emergency cases,
would be shut off by Aug. 15 and
all patients. will be removed. by
Oct. 15.
Shafer said that as a result of
the decision to close Percy Jones,
orders are being issued canceling
plans to raze th Army's 60-year-
old Dr. John Harvey Kellogg man-
sion near the hospital.
