Violinist Joseph Szigeti
'Quick on the Trigger ’
_ By MARJORIE McNEEL
"International artist’’ is a phrase which describes Joseph
Szigeti, outstanding violinist who will play Sunday afternoon
at 5 p.m. in McArthur court, for University students.
Szigeti has made two complete round the world concert
tours, appearing in Soviet Russia alone seven times. Now about
to become an American citizen
(he was born in Hungary) he has
made innumerable coast-to-coast
Although he is one of the world's
greatest violinists, Szigeti is no

where good swing can be heard. He
enjoys good food and wine. He
loves stimulating talk, new books,
old pictures, and winter sports.
Perhaps Szigeti’s poise is one
reason for his success. A good il
lustration of this occurred one
evening in Carnegie hall, when in
the middle of a number a string on
his violin broke. The New York
Times describes w’hat happened:
. . when Mr. Szigeti had attend
ed to his troubles with a string
which he had in his pocket for just
such an eventuality, the rhapsody

When U. S. warships go into action, telephone equipment
transmits orders instantly, clearly. For the huge battleship
"Wisconsin,” Western Electric supplied two systems using
equipment designed by Bell Telephone Laboratories.
1. Sound powered telephone system—with 2200 instruments
connecting all battle stations. These battle phones operate on
current generated by the speaker's voice, so damage to the ship’s
electrical power supply cannot interrupt communications.
2. Battle announcing system—with 20 transmitter stations
and over 300 giant-voiced loudspeakers.
Helping to supply "battle talk” equipment for use at sea, on
land and in the air is providing important work for many col
lege graduates—both men and women—at Western Electric.
