“I understand,” said Sir Thomas, “that 10:30 is your bed

will have a little more music. ’ ’ So saving Sir Thomas Beecham
and the Seattle Symphony added the finishing touch, “Sere

The audience was well-behaved
with the exception of a lone coke
bottle echo which caused Sir
Thomas to turn his head. The
pauses between the Mozart sym
phony No. 38 in D major were
breathless with silence instead
of the usual scattered applause.
Perhaps the most effective per
formance was that of the "Chasse
Royal et Orage” by Berlioz. Sir
Thomas flung his baton like
Thor hurling thunderbolts in this
tone poem of a royal hunt and
a forest storm.

Speaks to US
(Compiled from radio press
(See diagram page S)
For the first time in history an
enemy submarine intentionally
shelled the coast of the United
States last night at the same mo
ment that President Franklin D.
Roosevelt was making his radio
appeal to the American people
for an all-out offense effort
against the Axis powers.
The huge black messenger of
death from the land of the rising
sun, stood' a mile off the coast of
southern California and poured
at least 12 heavy shells into the
hills and canyons a few miles
north of Santa Barbara. The sub
blew up one oil-well pump, while
disbelieving natives gasped aw
geysers of sand and branches of
trees filled the twilight skies.
Their objective was apparently
the nearby oil refinery.
Citizens of the shelled area
were not prevented from hearing
their president speak, however,
as radio stations were not ordered
off the air until some time after
the speech. No deaths or injur
ies resulted from the attack.
The Iastj assault on U. S.
shores came during the first
world war, when a German
U-boat attacking barges off the
coast of Cape Cod, Maine, over
shot themselves and landed a few
hells along, tlufshore line, doing

Maxwell Anderson will be pre

cf a sea-going captain, who
through a voyage to the Malayan
islands, brings back a native
princess for a bride.
Written in simple, effective,
blank verse, the play turns to
the Puritanical Salem of the early
19th century for its setting.
Pat Howard, playing the part
of Faith Ingalls, is the other
woman. In love with Nathaniel
McQueston before he leaves, she
is astounded at his bringing back
a bride from his voyage.
