?!?&,0!. . . Treddy Martin Labled 'Foul' By Conductor By JOE MILLER ^“Abominable, detestable, offensive, damnable, foul, odious, nauseous, and utterly disgusting-. Will you mention every word please?’’ Sir Thomas Beecham speaking. He had just been asked what he though of the streamlining of Tschaikowsky’s music. He went on further to say: “Would you take the great paintings ot Reubens or Rembrandt and re paint them in the modern comic strip style of Dick Tracy or Little Orphan Annie ? Well that is what they are doing to Tschai kowski. Freddy Martin, a so called band leader is a, foul pros titutor of great music.” No Misunderstanding ‘‘Now, don’t misunderstand me,” Sir Tom said. (He asked to „,be 'called that.) “Good popular music is as important as good symphony music. That colored fellow, Count Basie, has created some music that will not die on the turn of the public’s fancy. And that is the test of good mu sic—it must be as good a hundred years from now as it is today.” One of the six top conductors in the business, Beecham is def initely a “good fellow.” Advance reports had him pictured as crus ty, violent, and given to being sometimes uncivil. That is not so. He is very much alive, a charm ing conversationalist, and states his very definite opinions in quick, staccato style. When asked about how he felt playing before the University au dience, he repled: Lkes College Audiece “I like them. When they like something they let you know it. They stamp and yell, and this makes a conductor feel appre ciated. If they hiss and boo, that’s all right, too. A demonstrative audience is definitely superior to a half-hearted, luke-warm one. Give me lots of noise.” I Sir Tom likes the Northwest.

Cal ifornia is cheap and vulgar, and the reserve of the Northwest is a welcome contrast, Eeecham de clared. He expressed regret that he could not see any UO teams in action. Sir Tom was a college football player in former days at Birmingham, England. “Tell them that,” he said, “We played fast football over there, and from some of the games I’ve seen in America, we could have given some of your big college teams quite a game.” Sir Thomas finished his dessert and looked across the table at Betty Humby, his piano poloist, who was evidently enjoying the whole conversation. “Well, Betty,” he said, in his clipped British accent, “Have you anything to offer to what I've already said?” The very attractive Miss Hum by smiled broadly and replied, “Why, Tommy, I think you’ve covered everything. Anything you say goes double for me.” Beecham, Symphony (Continued, jrom page one) Dressed in ice blue satin, blond Miss Betty Humby gave a re strained, finished interpretation of the Mozart concerto No. 17 in D major for piano and orchestra. With a soft understatement, she integrated piano with orchestra for a unified effect without the usual display of concerto tech nique. Throughout the program, but particularly in the “Walk in the Paradise Garden*” by Delius, the pianissimo which the orchestra and Sir Thomas achieved was whisper-like. Sir Thomas coaxed, wheedled with his baton, waggled his finger, became militant in the crescendos. Especially effective was his precise violin section headed by the Hungarian Francis Aryani; who took the violin solo in the encore number. Sir Thomas conducted entirely from memory, with the exception of the piano concerto. An unus ually spiridted playing of “The Star Spangled Banner” was fol lowed by the overture from “The Magic Flute” by Mozart. The familiar and popular “Es pana” by Chabrier was a crash ing colorful climax, with the ad dition of a tambourine, cymbals, and harp to the orchestra. Sir Thomas is the third in the Great er Artist series for 1941-42. Though it survived the Civil war, the University of North Carolina was closed for five years during the reconstruction period.

'Mayerling/ Boyer Show “Mayerling-,” the French movie starring Charles Boyer and Dan ielle Darrieux, will be presented by Pi Delta Phi in 207 Chapman today at 4:15 and 8 p.m. Voted the best foreign picture of the year 1937, the story of “Mayerling” is the keynote of success. Archduke Rudolph is forced to marry against his will and lives unhappily under the rule of his father, the emperor, Franz Josef. Love comes to him when he meets Baroness Marie Vetsera, but it is forbidden by the royal court. Having vainly sought annulment happiness comes to the pair in their tragic death. The movie is notable for the gorgeous settings in the court of the emperor, the orchestral and dance music, chiefly the rendi tion of “The Blue Danube Waltz,” and the dramatic incidents coup led with the exceptional perform ance by the stars. Thirty cents covers admission and tax for “Mayerling” and also for an additional feature, “French Peoples of Canada.” Persons named Leavenworth are eligible to benefit under a $12,000 scholarship fund at Ham ilton college.
