Choral singing is, perhaps, the earliest musical .expression
of t,he human race. It is only natural to assume ,thqt, when
humanity began to gather in groups for better results, in its
various activities, that music-making also .became a mass-action.
In the absence of instruments, with the possible exception of the
primitive tom-tom, the human voice, no matter how coarse, was1
the easiest instrument to express all these emotions which since
immemorial time find expression in music. Thus, the choir was
Eventually, music found its kindest patron in the church.
There, too, the choir was best suited to express the deep reli
gious feelings of the praying masses. Thus, evplved the church
choir. Most of the early music, before the days of virtuosos,
instruments and orchestras, was written for four voices. There
developed two distinct schools of choral singing, the Italian and
German. But the foundation of both was still church music.
In other words a capella singing.
The first signs of departure from these established schools
of choral singing, came from the gypsies. Those nomadic tribes,
which abound in southern Russia, contributed not a little to the
development of new forms of choral singing.
Basile Kibalchich, conductor of the Russian Symphonic
Choir, which will appear here at McArthur Court on Monday
night, has made the last important step forward in choral work.
He conceives a choir as a lmmap orchestra. .From .qqnception
to realization is but a matter of constructive ability. Mr.
Kibalchich .began to organise choirs several years ago, wherein
each voice was given the same value as an instrument in a
symphony orchestra, and for which music was written as it is
for a symphony orchestra.
To Eugene music lovers it will be a revelation to hear this
choir bring out in a remarkable program of classical and folk
music Mr. Kibalchich’s new ideas in choral singing.

Howard It. Taylor, assistant pro
fessor of psychology, is inclined to
vote for A1 Smith on the basis of
his emotional attitude, bat the .Re
publican stand on the two issues,
which he considers most fundupie.nt
al in the campaign, prohibition and
farm relief, has decided him to
mark the ballot for Hoover.
*‘A1 Smith is u good deal .more
like Lincoln,” lie stated. “Uoovori
has a wider success in executive
undertaking, but Smith has more of
the qualities which are demanded
of a president; he is a bettor poli
tician. 1 think Lincoln, too, was a1
shrewd politician, but lie used ithe
English language more ably.”
Mr. Taylor sympathises with
Smith because he feels that the
Democratic candidate has received
unfair treatment. lie also recog
nizes that the Republican adminis
tration has not fulfilled its prom
ises, but he believes that Hoover is
the sort of man who can make the
Republican party more responsible
to the people.
Prohibition Stand Same
Hoover's stand on prohibition Mr.
Taylor considers more sane than
.Smith’s, and he has more confidence
in the Republican candidate’s wis
“I would rather have prohibition
with all its evils than take a chance
on state dispensation, which I don’t
believe will work at all. A vote
cast for Smith shows a dissatisfac

necessarily a return to the saloon.
Smith’s program wouldn’t help us
any, but 1 do admire his frankness.
Successful prohibition, I think, is a
matter of education more than of

Taylor considers more sound eco

c,motions would have a greater share
than usual in deciding the outeome
of the election, the psychologist
stated that they would.
