Is Man of Genius
Director Dr. Karl Muck, Boston Sym-
phony, Has Reached Highest
Dr. Karl Muck, conductor of the
Boston Symphony orchestra, which
will give a concert in Hill auditorium
on Jan. 26, is one of the most interest-
ing personalities in the world of mu-
sic and a conductor of veritable
genius. He came to America in the
fall of 1906 on a year's leave of ab-
sence granted him personally by the
German emperor. This leave of ab-
sence was extended through the sea-
son of 1907-08. At the end of that
season he was recalled to Germany
and went on condition that he be per-
mitted to return at the end of his
engagement in Berlin. During the fol-
lowing four years, the orchestra had
as its conductor that admirable mu-
sician and leader, Max Fiedler of Ham-
burg, and in the fal of 1912 Doctor
Muck returned for a term of years.
Doctor Muck has wrought wonders
with the orchestra. Fine as it was
before, it has reached a height of
achievement greater than ever before
in its history and under his leader-
ship it has attained a popularity that
is unique. He is a man of stern dis-
cipline, a man of wide culture, and at
the same time has an imagination.

DISCUSS GENERAL DAM BILL
President Wants Water Power Legis-
lation Before March 4
Washington, Jan. 19. - President
Wilson made one of his sudden visits
to the capitol building today to gather
some odds and ends of legislation and
to discuss the general dam bill.
The president particularly urged
some kind of water power legislation
before March 4. This was taken to
mean he does not want an extra ses-
sion. Senator Stone, chairman of the
senate foreign relations committee,
was summoned to the president's of-
fice for a ten-minute conference.

"Why Aren't You in the Army," Eng-

Next to calling a man a German,
that is the favorite insult, amount-
ing to "fighting words," now in use in
London. The civilian hasn't much
chance of a come-back except with
his fists, so if he retorts at all it is
usually with his right.
The waiter with a little gold or
silver stripe on his sleeve, meaning
that he has been shot or gassed,
throws a sneering glance at the civ-
ilian diner. The soup is cold and the
(liner says so.
"The soup isn't cold in the army," is
the waiter's come-back. "Why aren't
As the conscription act exempts no-
body without reason,the civilian has
a good legal right to be a civilian.
But he can't go into details about his
tribunal hearing so he scrapes the
waiter's head with the ketchup-bottle.
But the civilian usually gets the worst
of it regardless of whether he suc-
ceeds in punishing his tormenter.

contemptuously, "My army has licked
yours twice and if they have to do it
again I'll be with 'em."
E. M. Grinnell, instructor in the Eng-

police headquarters yesterday that
some center pieces, napkins, and

found the missing articles in a neigh-
boring yard where they had been
blown by the wind.
