Chamber Music
And the String Quartet

MATTER OF FACT
By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP

Editor's Note: In conjunction with the cham-
ber music concerts by the Stanley Quartet, The
Daily this summer is running a symposium deal-
Ing with the "Performer's Viewpoint." Following
this introductory article, the members of the
quartet will present articles concerning the var-
ious works to be played, and Prof. Ross Lee Fin-
ney will discuss his recent work, Quintet with
Piano, which will be premiered by the Quartet.
By LOUISE CUYLER
Associate Professor of Musicology
ONCE MORE this summer the University
community is about to enjoy a series
of fine programs by its own ensemble-in-
residence, the Stanley Quartet. The con-
certs of this excellent group have become an
integral and cherished factor of Ann Ar-
bor's musical life.
The present enthusiasm and capacity au-
diences are heartwarming evidence of Ann
Arbor's musical maturing, especially for the
folk who recall lean years not so long ago,
when even the finest of chamber groups
brought a mere sprinkling of stalwart par-
tisans to the first rows of Mendelssohn The-
ater.
The string quartet is one of music's new-
er aspects. Casual scholars have attemped
to see its roots in the English viol consort,
the canzona, or in some other instrumental
form of the sixteenth or seventeenth cen-
tury; but any relationship of this sort is
tenuous, if discernible at all. So uniquely
a product of the eighteenth century is this
most elegant of all music's guises, that it
appears to epitomize the essential spirit of
that age. And like the time of its begin-
nings, the string quartet is delightfully
paradoxical. Intimate but detached, simple
yet urbane, overt while infinitely subtle, its
literature contains some of music's most
sublime measures. Most telling paradox of
all, the string quartet remains even today
the special delight and domain of amateur
and connoisseur.
The first important quartets were writ-
ten by Haydn and Mozart. Collectively
these comprise a sizeable portion of the
total repertoire. The deep friendship and
mutual esteem shared by these two gifted
men were as fruitful as they were rare, and
profoundly influenced the style of both.;
Haydn, pioneer of the string quartet,
taught Mozart the medium, b example
and precept alike. Pupil, in turn, paid
homage to teacher in the inscribing of
Mozart's six famous quartets to Josef
Haydn. Almost any composition by either
of these great masters is a joy and a
treasure. Haydn appears to have found
the string quartet his most natural and
useful form, and his music in this idiom
embodies collectively the elements of his
finest style. For Mozart, however, the
quartet was but one of many almost
equally plastic and expressive mediums.
Among his chamber works, indeed, many

In the music of Beethoven the string

DRI
THE MADWOMAN OF CHAILLOT,
presented by the Department of Speech at
Lydia Mendelssohn Theater
IN GENERAL, "light" productions have
featured the' summer seasons of the
Speech Department for a number of years
now. Respecting tradition, Directors Val-
entine Windt and Claribel Baird have of-
fered "The Madwoman of Chaillot" by Jean
Girardoux to launch the current series.
Last night's opening revealed that they
have put together a fairly smooth show, but
one perhaps too light, too hazily focused for
the general high caliber of some of the per-
formances.
The raw material the directors were pro-
videl with, Girardoux's comedy-drama,
despite its many honors, is not really a

first-rate play. It is by no means sure-fire,
and if it can be made to work, its primary
requirement as in many similar plays, is
atmosphere. It is a daringly tenuous play;
it operates, as fantasies must, with almost
The Popular Arts
THE FACT that the University of Michi-
gan has undertaken a summer school
study of what is referred to as popular arts
in America is more important than anything
the study may develop.
There has been growing suspicion that the
University has been developing a cloister-
complex-an ivy-walled tendency to study
what has been and what hight be at the
expense of what is.
As a newspaper we are pleased the Uni-
versity of Michigan is delving into the comic
strips both as a form of popular art and in
their vast influence on the lives and customs
of a nation .. ,
But as citizens of Michigan and supporters
of the University we are equally gratified to
see attention being given to jazz music-
which we can only tolerate-and to adver-
tising art, illustrations in popular magazines
and to all the other forms of expression
which are a part of American living.

most sublime and selfless manner. He wrote
sixteen in all, aside from the Great Fugue;
a group for each of his major periods of
style, and two intermediate works. All are
great music; but for many, those after Op.
95 comprise music's trancendent achieve-
ment.
Most subsequent nineteenth century mas-
ters wrote quartets. Schubert left fifteen, of
which the A-minor and the "Death and the
Maiden" are the best known. Mendelssohn,
Schumann, each of the Russian "Five," ev-
en Verdi, found occasional refuge from pre-
tentiousness and subjectiveness in the me-
dium. It remained for Brahms, however, to
restore the quartet to temporary magnifi-
cence in his three wonderful examples.
Debussy and Ravel, who wrote a fine
quartet apiece-at about the turn of the cen-
tury, found the implicit detachment and
transparency of this form facile and ex-
pressive.
With the twentieth century, all cham-
ber music, the string quartet in paricular,
has come into its own. Scarcely a major
composer but has found his most essen-
tial and articulate expression in the me-
dium.
Among the Germans, Schonberg, Von
Webern, Berg, Hindemith, to name but a
few, all have written fine, strong quartets,
of high originality and, it must be added,
menacing difficulties of performance. Ma-
jor English, Scandinavian, Russian, and
Italian composers of our day have made
fruitful use of the form. Bela Bartok's six
magnificent quartets are milestones, not
only among the total works of this great
artist, but in all twentieth century music.
The French "Six" have emulated Debussy
and Ravel in their predilection for chamber
music, and Milhaud alone has written eigh-
teen! This prolific composer's Piano Quin-
tet No. 1 is being played at the final con-
cert of the present summer series.
Of the Americans, Walter Piston, Quincy
Porter, Roger Sessions, and all the younger
group have written numerous interesting
chamber works. The University's own com-
poser-in-residence, Ross Lee Finney, is no
exception, and his six string quartets have
been compositions of major interest in pro-
grams of the last few years. His new Piano
Quintet will have a first performance at the
second Stanley Quartet program of the
summer.
Nowadays, when performance of cham-
ber music has moved, perforce, from draw-
ing room to concert hall, a new burden
is placed on both players and listeners:
they must create their own rapport across
the footlight barrier, for were such music
to lose its intimacy and artlessness, its
essential quality would disappear.
That such studied rapport is possible,
even easy, has been shown here on numer-
ous occasions. If you are skeptical, come to
Rackham Lecture Hall on July 7, and wit.

demain of Mozart, Beethoven, Bartok, and

M A
Immediate distinctions between good and
evil, purity and greed, rich and poor. The
only physical anchor for these sketch-
ily embodied character extremes is in Act
One, the setting of an outdoor Parisian
cafe; and in Act Two, the "Bourbonesque"
basement apartment of the Countess of
Chaillot, a Parisian eccentric. The notion,
of course, is that the Countess, represent-
ing the pure heart, is suddenly empowered
with the destruction of the evil capitalist-
ic forces which are systematically choking
the noble poor. Her discharge of this op-
portunity is the entire dramatic content
of the play.
Fantasies, however, must be grounded in
some kind of recognizable environment, and
that is where "atmosphere" comes in. This
means, I suppose, the furnishing of sufficient
details to allow the audience to feel the inevi-

table authenticity of surfaces. The play-
wright, while presenting these authentici-
ties, must simultaneously suggest just enough
of his projected flight to prepare the audi-
ence for the eventual escape to unreality.
This involves a neat trick of casting the au-
dience away, then constantly reeling them
back until full certainty exists that they are
hooked. This production of "Madwoman"
never quite liooked the audience, because
they were never properly reeled in; that is,
they were never made to believe in the sur-
face.
Whether this required an attempt to
give all the performers French accents or
whether it merely meant adding con-
vincing detail to the performances of the
exalted impoverished I am not sure.
Something however was needed to ground
the audience and make them share not
only the obvious laugh lines of the char-
acters, but also their undertaking and
their spirit, as exemplified, for example, in
the final dance of victory, which felt dis-
agreeably easy and fiat.
Of the performances, Claribel Baird por-
trays the Countess Aurelia with consummate
professional skill. If the madness of the char-
acter seems underplayed at times, it is pos-
sibly because Miss Baird was holding her-
self back to more nearly conform with a

WASHINGTON-The real story of what
happened at Dartmouth-of how the
President was stimulated to his famous de-
nunciation of "book-burning"-is still high-
ly relevant and important.
To begin with, the President's swing
around the country that took him to Dart-
mouth was preceded by a long White House
debate about "The McCarthy problem," as
the President's advisors significantly call
it. As is well known, the President person-
ally not only detests Joseph R. McCarthy's
methods but also abhors the man himself.
The administration's surrenders to Sena-
tor McCarthy-and surrender, unfortunate-
ly, is the only word to use-have been made
for the sole purpose of maintaining the
outward show of Republican unity.
When the President's speeches were be-
ing prepared, one group of Eisenhower's ad-
visers urged him to speak to the country
about "the McCarthy problem" almost as
he speaks in private, making no personal
attack to be sure, but re-affirming American
principles of fair play, and leaving no doubt
as to his feelings about the McCarthy me-
thods. This advice was inevitably opposed
by the other White House faction, who ad-
vocate of Republican unity at all costs.
The result was a compromise. A pas-
sage was inserted in the President's speech
at Mount Rushmore, warning against
those who would "guard freedom with
weapons from the arsenal of the tyrant.'
More than one of those traveling with
the President plainly stated that these
words were spoken with Senator McCarthy
in mind; There is no doubt that this was
the intention. But the intention was not
fulfilled. The President's language, though
noble and sincere, was not sufficiently
pointed. What was said at Mount Rush-
more attracted little attention.
By way of contrast, there was no inten-
tion to take any sort of stand on any seri-
ous problem at the Dartmouth commence-
ment, where the President's language at-
tracted world-attenion. The whole thing
happened on the platform, while the Dart-
mouth graduating class was filing into its
places.
In the happy academic interval, the
President, Judge Joseph M. Proskauer of
New York, former German High Com-
missioner John J. McCloy and Canada's
Minister of Foreign Affaisr, Lester Pear-
son, were sitting together on the dais.
Judge Proskauer,. who was sitting next
to McCloy, raised the subject of "book-
burning"-of the removal from American
libraries abroad of all books by authors
or on subjects that might just possibly
displease Senator McCarthy.
For McCloy, this was a burning issue. The
libraries of the "American House," in Ger-
many had always been one of McCloy's
great interests. In his last year as high
commissioner, he had seen them used by no
less than 15,000,000 Germans. Nothing had
contributed more importantly, McCloy be-
lieved, to showing the real American to
German people.
Then, too, with the beginning of the Mc
Carthy-stimulated "book-burning" by the
State Deparment, scores of Germans had
started writing to McCloy. The worried
Germans asked whether America had
changed, whether freedom of thought was
no longer in fashion here, even whether
America was taking the road Germany took
20 years ago. Many of these letters came
from real leaders of German thought. Un-
der the circumstances, McCloy replied to
Proskauer with some warmth.
Foreign Minister Pearson was then
drawn into the discussion. He pointed
out, entirely correctly, that the book-
burning had done America's prestige un-
told damage in many other countries be-
sides Germany. At this the President
pricked up his ears, as it were. He had
not been following the conversation, but
now he asked what his companions were
talking about.
When he was told, he was visibly indig-
nant. His first reaction-which is immense-

ly interesting in itself-was to deny the
whole story. Nothing of the sort could be
going on, he said; no order had been is-
sued to censor the American overseas li-
braries.
His companions assured Eisenhower that
he was not fully informed; that book burn-
ing, at least in the figurative sense, was ac-
tually taking place on a major scale; and
that orders for this practice had, in fact,
been issued. The President flushed. And
when his turn came to speak, he said, in
plain and stirring words, just what he
thought of book-burning, for the whole
world to hear.
This incident and its sequels illustrate
dramatically the difference between the
real Eisenhower and the public Eisen-
hower. The real Eisenhower, spontaneous
and truly himself, appeared at Dartmouth.
The public Eisenhower was exhibited a
couple of days later at the President's
press conference.
By then, the political mice who are al-
ways trying to nibble the President to death,
or at least into meaninglessness, had had
time to do their work. The press confer-
ence smudged and muddled the stand the
President took at Dartmouth, so much so,
indeed, that the Presiden had to reassert
his views in his letter to the American li-

"He's One Of My Young-Uns. 'what About W.?"

B. The United States now has'
on hand 246,561,000 pounds of
butter acquired at the taxpayers'
expense, which probably cannot
be dumped on our own market
without ruining farmers and
which will not keep indefinitely.
Eventually butter gets rancid. A
modest amount of this surplus'
sent to Berlin right now would
give the Reds the heebie-jeebies.
Berlin is a city in which it is
extremely difficult to prevent peo-
ple from passing back and forth:
between east and west. I have
crossed back and forth into the
Soviet Zone a dozen times. Sev-
eral thousand people cross back
and forth daily on their way to1
work.
If the Russians refused to ad-
mit into East Germany a gift of
free butter from he U.S.A., it
would be a simple matter for the
giant U.S. radio station in Berlin,
RIAS, to announce that East Ber-
liners could come across the line
and get it.
The same could bedone with
excess wheat, now stored away
in decrepit ships in the Hud-
son River. A million loaves of
bread require a relatively small
amount of wheat. Yet a million
loaves of bread in Berlin right
now might take East Germany
permanently out from under the
Iron Curtain.
However, when American relief
agency officials have approached1
Secretary of Agriculture Benson
on these problems they have got
nowhere. Secretary Benson is a
most sincere and religious gentle-
man. Twice when an American
relief agency chief has called on
him regarding the disposal of our
giant stores of surplus food, the
Secretary of Agriculture has asked
him ' to bow his head in prayer.
But he has given no answer about
releasing a small part of our sur-
plus food.

When he first took office,
Gen. Omar Bradley, chairman
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
dropped in to tell Wilson that
he would brief him on certain
days of the week at a certain
time. The new Secretary of De-
fense promptly replied that he
didn't need to be briefed, but
would call Bradley in whenever
needed.
"You know, all those fellows
want to do in their briefing," Wil-
son told a friend, "isto condition
you so that you will do somgthing
that is wrong."
In' this case, Wilson misjudged
Omar Bradley, one of the most
sincere and idealistic men in the
Armed Forces. However, the new
Secretary has been trying to cut
red tape on a lot of things and
may come out on top in the end.
No system whereby a paper has
to be signed by 17 different people
is any good, Wilson says, because
you can't fix responsibility on one
person.
While Wilson's defense budget
is the biggest in government and
therefore has the most fat, the
problem is to pick the fat, not
the lean, and some budget prun-
ers are pretty good a getting the
two mixed up.

Rhee's Action .. .
To the Editor:
SINCE WHEN has it been the
duty of the U.S. or the UN
to use its forces as instruments
for Communist suppression? It is
an unheard of situation for an
enemy to ask its foe to round up
escaped prisoners. It is an un-
heard of situation when prisoners
do not wish to return home. There
is no international convention of
any type saying prisoners of war
should be prevented from escap-
ing, I'm sure the UN would have
no objections if the Reds left their
camps unguarded.
Rather than censure Rhee, we'
should congratulate him for hav-
ing done something that should
have been done long ago. Some of
those prisoners had spent close to
three years in baptivity already,
and it was time they were releas-
ed.
