'Cellist Thrills
Igloo Audience
Playing to a crowd of approxi
mately 500 students, soldiers, and
townspeople, Gregor Piatigorsky,
world-renowned ’cellist, presented
a richly varied program at Mc
Arthur court last night. The color
ful tones of his fabulous Mon
tagnana ’cello thrilled his audi
ence, who called for several en
cores. .
The first half of the program
consisted of works by Mozart,
Beethoven and Tschaikowsky. He
played an encore of the Prelude
in C Major by Bach, a stirring
rhythmical number. The climax
was reached in Prokofieff’s
“Music for Children”, a Piatigor
sky arangement, followed by
Fantasie-Stucke by Schumann.
The audience encored the vir
tuoso's final selection, and he re
turned with the "Swan” by Saint
gaean, “Horra Staccato” by Din
co, and “Rondo’’ by Vaber.
Asked why he had continued to
play this instrument, although it
was not as well-known as others,
he explained:

Campbell Co-op
Dear Editor:
This letter is written to deny
the accusations which appeared
in yesterday’s Emerald, of “in
efficiency and manipulation of
tickets’’ in the AWS Nickel
The charges expounded in the
letter from Campbell club neg
lected to reveal considerations
which cast a different light on
the affair.
We contacted the members
of Campbell club after it was
learned that there were only
eight men residing in the co
op. The following facts were pre
sented to them. Because they
had eight members, and since
the winner is chosen on a per
centage basis, it was obvious
that they would win, even if
they didn’t turn out one hundred
per cent. While other groups
wouldn’t stand a chance, be
cause of the difficulty of con
tacting their members.
The boys were then request
ed to combine with Steiwer
hall in taking part in the com
petition. The president rejected
our request. This adds up to
one fact: Campbell club knew
ahead of time what was going
to happen. Still they condemned
AWS as an inefficient organ
ization, and go as far as to
suggest that we disband.
Suffice it to say that we feel
that we were unjustly accused,
and deem it unnecessary to ex
tend our reply further.
