Crop Control Hangs
Fire; 'The Missus'
By GORDON RIDGEWAY
WASHINGTON, Nov. 29.
Cheaper homes was the cry of
President Roosevelt in his latest
message to congress. The nation's
No. 1 chief suggested cutting in
half the down payments on build
ing new homes under the federal
housing act. He also would reduce
financing charges on both small

The president maintained that
the high cost of building is “one
of the principal reasons” for the
present business lag.

In the house, crop control legis

As debate raged, some exclaimed
that the bill would wipe out wealth,
establish a large bureaucracy, and
further increase the national debt.

For the past two years. Miss
Brockman has been studying at
the New England conservatory of
music in Boston. “I have been,
working two years for my master’s

plans to continue her work, and to

she explained, “I have no definite
plans except that I know I shall
keep on with my music.”
Miss Brockman has played in

She finds that eastern schools of
music, though often larger, are of
no higher standard than the Uni

j the same things here that they are
in the east,” she stated. “I value I
my training here very highly—and
Mr. Underwood has done so much

in general—taking in all classes—
accept music more readily in the
eastern than western states. She
explained that all classes of people

In addition to music, Miss'
Brockman is very interested in
literature, dancing, and sports,
especially canoeing,” she said. I \

of all! I used to have my own

As to composers, Miss Brockman
stated that although Brahms
might possibly be her favorite, she
has so many that she really cannot
say. She likes all types of selec
tions—classical, modern, and • ro
mantic. For dancing, she finds
popular music enjoyable.
Her group of selections in her
concert Sunday will include a
“Spanish Dance” by Granados, a
Debussy waltz, “Nocturne” by Lili

“one erf the very few great women
composers,” and a Stravinsky Rus
