Farm Surpluses
For Foreign Aid

T he Film

IT IS BEGINNING to look as if a long
awaited federal step, that of making
government owned farm surpluses easily
available to foreign countries in need of
food, may finally be taken.
President Eisenhower last week asked
Congress for the blanket authority to grant,
lend or sell government owned farm prod-
ucts to nations "urgently needing relief."
Ever since the end of World War II gov-
ernment-owned food supplies acquired
through farm support programs have been
allowed literally to rot in federal store
houses. Yet in 1951 it took Congress four
months from the time of President Truman's
first request to pass a bill for famine relief
in India. By the end of the congressional
tussel the gift which Truman had asked for
had become a loan, and for a time there had
been some doubt as to whether the needed
supplies would be granted at all.
However, Congressional opinion seems to
be moving away from the isolationist at-
titude that would deny needed relief.
Last month a similar request by Eisenhow-
er for wheat for famine stricken Pakistan
went through Congress in comparatively

short order. It was given as a gift to Pakis-
tan with the stipulation that the money ob-
tained from people who could afford to pay
would go for dam and irrigation projects in
that country.
The authority which the President is now
requesting seems to be another step in a log-
ical progression. It would avoid the neces-
sity of requiring an already overburdened
Congress to pass special legislation if an-
other obvious need should arise and it would
also mean that food shipment could begin as
soon as the President decided that relief
measures were needed.
The usual argument that food grants to
needy countries helps to thwart Commu-
nism in those areas grows stronger when
action can be taken faster and probably
more often.
It would seem plausable for congressional
representatives to support a move which has
the potentially triple advantage of reducing
farm surpluses, lightening the congression-
al schedule, and advancing American cold
war aims, in addition to the fact that it is
a form of foreign aid that we can easily af-
ford.

PERFORMER'S VIEWPOINT:
Bela Bartok's Fourth Quartet

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second in a
series of articles on chamber music.)
By OLIVER EDEL
Professor of Chamber Music and
Violoncello; Cellist of the Stanley Quartet
THE PREPARATION for performance of
Bela Bartok's Fourth String Quartet by
the Stanley Quartet is in a certain sense sim-
ilar to that accorded any serious work by
a professional quartet. It is true that each
concertizing group develops for itself a
somewhat unique pattern of procedure. Dif-
ferences are however superficial rather than
fundamental. The 'directed' quartet of the
19th and early 20th centuries, composed of
a great man and his three lesser assistants,
is largely a thing of the past. Present day
thinking and the more equal and rigorous
demands made on each of the four instru-
mentalists of the quartet, have decreed a
procedure based on a democratic association
of its members. The Stanley Quartet, no
exception to this rule, exercises a strict de-
iocracy in its affairs, equality of initiative
and voting power being vested in each of
its members.
A framework for initiative established, the
approach to the interpretation of a work
will then reflect the composite personality
of the particular group concerned. In the
case of the quartets of Bela Bartok, however,
certain problems common to all perform-.
ance groups are proposed, that require so-
lution as prerequisites to a usual prepara-
tion procedure, to a mature interpretative
consideration. These problems spring on the
one hand from the preoccupation of profes-
sional quartets with the literature of the
19th century, which of course provides the
bulk of their repertories, and on the other
hand, from Bartok's profound originality and
incisive rejection of outworn conventions.
Referring directly to the 4th quartet, the
preliminary problems are three, and have
to do with Bartok's concepts of rhythm, har-
mony, and instrumental technique.
Considering the rhythmic problem first,
we find, at first glance a comforting adher-
ence to established convention. There are few
tempo changes within movements. Complete
metric consistency, too, is outwardly ap-
parent; the first movement being in 4/4, the
third in 4/4, the fourth in 3/4, and the last
in 2/4. Only in the second movement do we
observe a most venerable kind of excur-
sion, an occasional alternation of 2/4 with
a basic 6/8. Great moderation too, at least
for our time, is present in the arthmetical
division of each measure, in the co-incidence
of beats. Simple quarter, eighth and six-
teenth notes are the rule.
But here ends abruptly, at least for the
greater part of the work, any further
similarity to the rhythmic habits of the
nineteenth century. For immediately it
is apparent that traditional organization
of pulse within the measure, such as the
heavy first beat and light second beat, or
the heavy first beat and light second and
third beats of 3/4 time, are rarely pres-
ent..Rather is the measure used primarily
to plot out in orderly fashion for all four
instruments the simple passage of time.
Actually, Bartok may invoke the heavy
pulse of a rhythm on any beat or sub-
division of beat within the measure, and
his meters may be varied and in any suc-
cession he wishes. 4/4 may be followed by
7/8, and that in turn by 2/4, 5/8, or 11/8.
One might say that this presents enough
of a rhythmic problem. But Bartok does
not stop there. He extends his free rhyth-
mic concept to include a non-coincidence
of meter between two, three, or all four
instruments. Resultant difficulties for the
performer are heightened by the great
speed with which these complexities often
develop,
Such a texture of rhythms as Bartok
here creates, often revealed under con-
ditions of extreme technical demand, re-j

of study and familiarization. These
rhythms must be lived with, played and
heard again and again, before one may
be sufficiently at home in them to pro-
ceed to the work's more subtle and polished
preparation to the more usual work-pat-
tern of the particular organization con-
cerned.
Bartok's harmonic concepts and .the so-
norities he creates present a second problem.
Here again we find an originality, ruthlessly
alien in its product to our 19th century in-
doctrinations. His concept of sound, often
harsh and strident to our more gently con-
ditioned musical hearing, must also be lived
with and heard at length, before subtle dis-
tinctions and compulsions may be noted and
evaluated.
The third problem posed by Bartok in his
fourth quartet is one of instrumental tech-
nique, and ariss from his refusing, like
Beethoven, to limit himself in his writing
to. contemporary concepts of instrumental
techniques. Once more, he is as unaffected
by tradition as he is in his rhythms and har-
monies, and in this case, demands a com-
panion orginality on the part of the perform-
er. New technical ways and means must be
found to fulfill his musical intentions. New
hand positions, new techniques of pizzicato
and position change must be found and per-
fceted. Once again time is necessary to savor
the problem and to find the best possible so-
lution.
Preliminary problems of rhythm, har-
mony, and technique having been met,
the musical re-creation of the 4th quar-
tet proceeds much as would that of any
other great work of like medium. The
design of each movement is clear, the
materials apparent. A linear first move-
ment in sonata allegro form is succeeded
by a second movement scherzo, amazing-
ly swift and irridescent of texture. The
third movement, the slow one of the quar-
tet, treats the cello most generously, and
provides for the other instruments as well
extended solos of expressive and improvi-
sational nature. The fourth movement,
employing only the pizzicato use of the
four instruments, beguiles one pleasantly
and somewhat whimsically, and sets the
stage most subtly for a finale, almost
demoniacal in its wild rhythms and out-
bursts of melody.
A final problem to the performer, once
again the result of Bartok's originality and
an opposing 19th century indoctrination,is
the audience frame of mind. Although Bar-
tok's audience has increased greatly in the
last ten years, there are still many, preferring
the sonorities of Bach, Beethoven or other
earier composers, who cannot accept
him. A failure to accept Bartok in his
own terms, a perhaps unconscious insistence
on evaluations rooted in old, familiar sounds
may well be the same failure and insistence
that have in the past relegated the most
treasured quartets of Beethoven to decades
of oblivion, and that caused a near riot
when our old friend The Sacre de Prin-
temps was first performed; the same failure
and insistence that have withheld from our
enjoyment unreasonably long so many oth-
er great and needed musical treasures.
The Stanley Quartet has observed that
members of the lay-audience who find Bar-
tok objectionable and abstruse, come most
quickly to a real communicative contact
with his music and the performer through
simply sitting back, relaxing, and expecting
nothing remotely similar to anything they
have every heard before; to be, in short, very
dry, thirsty, unprejudiced musical sponges.
Surely such toleration may be easily jus-
tified. So much of our great art has dictated
to us all the exercise of patience and good
will before yielding its new beauties to our
inevitably indoctrinated minds. We in the
Stanley Quartet have no doubt but that the

On Fine Arts
A LOCAL MOVIE-HOUSE, as part of i
program of short subjects, recently ex-
hibited two examples of Hollywood's ges-
ture towards the arts. The first was en-
titled "Birth of Venus," and it attempted to
give a glimpse of Italian painting depicting
iconography of ancient Greece. The second
was a bit in the newsreel showing art stu-
dents in Florence.
In both cases a gimmick or "angle" was
used, in the first intelligently, and in the
second greatly to the damage of its sub-
ject. The first film showed briefly two
paintings, Raphael's "School of Athens"
and Botticelli's "Birth of Venus."
To introduce these paintings the film
pointed out the excitement of the Renais-
sance at re-discovering Greek civilization.
It did this by discreet commentary, discuss-
ing generally the references to Greek cul-
ture in the Raphael, and showing represen-
tative sculptures done from Greek models.
In addition to a description of the my-
thological references in the Botticelli, the
film used natural shots of Italy to illus-
trate the flora which Bottecilli used as a
model besides the elassical figure. The
result of such documentation, in both
works, was to provide a better under-
standing of the paintings represented,
and this, along with excellent camera
work on the paintings, gave an under-
standing and sensitive analysis.
It can be added however that some bad-
ly-timed film cutting did hamper the film.
The shots of the earnest professor surveying
the scene and of the natural Italian land-
scape were too long, giving a slightly ludi-
crous tinge and a faint air of travelogue.
But on the whole it was the best of such
efforts since Flaherty's "Titan," with the
added virtue of being in color.
The newsreel bit was insulting and dem-
onstrated the horrible fascination our so-
ciety has with clouding a sincere act with
insipid humour, something supposed to
make it newsworthy. A group of art stu-
dents were shown entering a Florentine
square in horse drawn carriages. After
alighting from the vehicles the students
proceeded to go about their work. The final
shot showed a female student lovingly hold-
ing up a sculpture of grapes with the news-
reel commentator gleefully exclaiming: "It
looks realistic enough to eat."
Of course the art itself that- these stu-
dents were doing, or the problems that
particularly affronted them, would not be
considered newsworthy, of enough "hu-
man interest." The edibility of fabricated
grapes, a quality no sculptor would ever
consider as a criterion for his art, or a
horse and buggy, of no remote pertinence
to the actual subject at hand, would ev-
identlyprovide a "human interest."
It is this type of "angle" that generates
nine tenths of the public hostility towards
art in this country. The same sort of theory
underlies it as that of the artist always
sporting a peacock feather. For the engi-
neer or statesman, his trade is enough of a
gimmick, but the artist it seems some other
way must be found of publicizing him.
Such publicity however emphasizes art as
'being ridiculous, odd, even inhuman, there-
by lending support to the falsehood that the
artist is not part of society, and that his
art is not a product of it.
It is time that the invalidity of this theo-
ry be learned. The artist does not need cute
phrases to apologize for his art. He does not
wear a peacock feather. His trade is news-
worthy.
An apparently harmless newsreel bit can
do much to hinder the meanings of art and
the intent of the artist by playing up faul-
ty premises. Intelligent reports like "Birth
of Venus" are of vast importance in giving
art its proper perspective. Nowhere can this
be done more beneficially than in the mass-
producing media such as radio, television,
newspapers, or as in this case, the film.

Freeing Japanese
Prisoners
THE GOVERNMENT of the Philippines
has taken a sweeping action in respect
to its Japanese war-crimes prisoners. Those
who were under sentence of death have had
the sentences commuted to life imprison-
ment. Those with lesser sentences are set
at liberty and will be returned to Japan.
This is a further step in the effort to
resore normal relationships between the
two Far Eastern countries, and as such is
commendable. When one considers the de-
gree of the Filipinos' grievancedagainst Ja-
pan this act must be regarded as one of
unusual generosity. The Filipinos are ob-
viously trying to forgive, even if they can-
not forget.
There is a further motive. The Philip-
pines are trying to establish a better climate
of feeling in which the question of Japanese
reparations can be discussed. Both sides to
that discussion have come a long way.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

I

ON THE
WASHINGTON
MERRY-GO-HOUND
WITH DREW PEARSON

WASHINGTON -- A significant backstage battle over McCrthyism
will be waged this morning when the McCarthy committee meets
behind closed doors to discuss its executive director, J. B. Mathews,
and his satement that "the largest single group supporting the Com-
munist apparatus in the United States today is composed of Prot-
estant clergymen." I
Matthews, formerly employed by the Hearst newspapers, has re-
cently replaced fair-minded "Frip" Flanagan, who for many years
directed the Senate Government Operations Committee of which Mc-
Carthy is now chairman. But when the committee meets today it will
face a solid phalanx of three Democrats-Jackson of Washington, Mc-
Clellan of Arkansas and Symington of Missouri-who will demand
that Matthews be fired.
The three Democrats can be out-voted by the four Republi-
cans, but the interesting question will be whether all the Republi-
cans will line up together. For three of the four Republicans
are Protestants: Mundt of South Dakota and Potter of Michi-
gan are Methodists; Dirksen of Illinois is a Presbyterian. Mc-
Carthy, the chairman, is Catholic.
During the closed-door debate, the three Protestant Republicans
will have to decide whether to go along with their chairman or with
the Protestant churches which have been attacked by committee
director Matthews.
VANDENBERG VS. FERGUSON
Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg, retiring Chief of Staff of tbe Air Force,
took a rear elevator up to room 676 of the Mayflower Hotel the other
day and dropped in for a quiet chat with his old boss Harry Truman.
Though one is a Republican and the other a Democrat, the two
talked, believe it or not, about politics-specifically about the pos-
sibility of Vandenberg's running for the Senate from Mithigan against
GOP Sen.. Homer Ferguson. Truman was eager to have him run.,
"I've been a Republican all my life," said General Vandenberg,
"but when I see what this administration has done to the Air
Force, it almost makes me a Democrat"
Truman, who fought for a big military budget, didn't have to
express agreement. He has said both privately and publicly that Ei-
senhower cuts in the Air Force are one of the worst tragedies affecting
the security of the nation. On the political front, he told Vandenberg
that he would undertake to sound out the Governor of Michigan, up-
and-coming young "Soapy" Williams, a Democrat, to see whether he
would stay out of the Michigan race if Vandenberg ran.
Upon further talks will depend whether, first, Vandenberg runs
in the primarly as a Republican against Senator l3omer Ferguson,
also a Republican, and whether he runs as a Democrat in the final
election. The ultimate decision will partly depend on Governor Wil-
liams. Popular in Michigan, he would be a hard man to beat.
BRITISH ADVICE ON RHEE
Field Marshall Alexander of the British army has urged General
Mark Clark to take the unusual step of arresting President Syng-
man Rhee if he continueo obstruct a truce in Korea.
Lord Alexander, who was General Clark's superior during the Italian
campaign, says Britain wouldn't have put up with Rhee's defiance
for ten minutes if he were in charge of negotiations.
American military men considered the idea of replacing Rhee
with the Chief of Staff of the Korean Army, but President Eisenhower
overrulled them.
SENATE SARCASM
WEALTHY. Retired Charles Daw of Daytona Beach, Fla., was
testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee the other day
against the appointment of James L. Guilmartin to be U.S. Attorney
for Southern Florida.
"What is your occupation and profession? demanded Senator
Herman Welker, Idaho Republican.
"I do nothing, sir," replied Daw.
"That is a wonderful occupation," remarked Welker.
"If you need a good' partner," broke in Chairman "Wild Bill"
Langer of North Dakota, "you could have one in Senator Welker."
PATRIOTIC CONGRESSMAN
GOP Congressman Robert Kean of New Jersey, who is leading the
fight inside the House Ways and Means Committee to extend the
excess profits tax, stands to lose $20,000-if he wins his fight. For
Kean will have to pay an extra $20,000 on the excess profits of his
bank, the Livingston National Bank of Livipgston, N.J. That's $5,000
more than his total congressional salary-
Yet the Congressman has unselfishly urged that the tax be con-
tinued and is one of the few Republicans inside the Ways and Means
Committee voting against Uncle Dan Reed.
MURDER IN THE PENTAGON
It begins to look as if "Murder in the Pentagon" was not just the
title of a detective story or a TV drama. Finding the decomposed
body of John S. Johnson, a mail clerk, in the truck rack of his car
now casts serious suspicion on the manner in. which Lee E. Harden,
a trusted guard, was found dead at the bottom of a locked "security"
elevator shaft two months ago.
His body was not mangled by the elevator, but appeared beaten
up. However, his hand was clutching the key to the elevator as if he
had unlocked the elevator doors himself, and he was declared a sui-
cide. On the other hand, the guards did not carry revolvers that day,1
presumably because of an inspection; and it was significant that Har-
den had earlier participated in a raid on some government lockers
where he uncovered evidence implicating one Pentagon employee in
the numbers racket. It is also believed that Johnson's murder re-
sulted from numbers racket revenge.

The Man Mau.. ..
To the Editor:
"MORE Kikuyu suspects are
rounded up and killed." This
is the familiar news cast of the
chronic problem of Mau Mau in
Kenya. Violence is the usual meth-
od by which the British solve their
Colonial problems.
Before passing judgment on Ki-
kuyu tribe for employing drastic
means of expelling the Kenya
"white settlers," just pause and
thinkdof the following argument.
In order to restrict the Union of
South Africa from encroaching on
East African territories, the Brit-
ish created a Central African Fed-
eration against the wish of the
Negro Africans. These native Af-
ricans know that the real objective
of the British is to plant another
Union of South Africa in East
Africa. The wish of the native Af-

ricans is unimportant to the Brit-
ish Imperialists as illustrated by
these hostile actions. If the Brit-
ish are sincere with Africans
would they attempt to deprive
them of the only property they
have? Land is the soul of the Afri-
cans. But is this not being usurped
by the British protected whites in
South Africa and Kenya. Is this
not a good reason for the emerg-
ence of Mau Mau?
The spirit of Mau Mau has
spread all over Africa. It maysbe
active, as in Kenya or silent, as
in Nigeria. The people of Africa
wish to be allowed full privileges
to own their property. They want
freedom to live; and they want
self determination. They want
the West to withdraw her blood-
stained imperialist claws, and
practise what she preaches.
In the United States emphasis is
laid on Communist enslavement of
the World; but little attention is
paid to the constant riots in Af-
rica, riots which demonstrate the
brutality of the "Free Nations."
Europe is 'preying on the weak Af-
ricans. Financially and morally
United States is aiding Europe to
enslave them. How long will this
continue?
This is the time for the West to
change attitude. The longer this )
