!Portland Symphony Conductor
I Stands High Among Greatest
Werner Janssen, who wii'l con
duct the Portland sumphony or
chestra Wednesday evening, March
10, in McArthur court, is a native
born American who has achieved a
position of eminence among con
ductors of the world.
Previous to taking over the re
activated Portland symphony this
last season he has toured through
out the world and the United
States conducting orchestras ir
Philadelphia, Chicago, Hollywood
Baltimore, Boston, St. Louis, De
troit, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara
San Francisco, and San Diego.
Graduated from Dartmouth
Janssen is noted for being a
stickler for detail, but a conductor
who creates marvelous results be
Talks on Races
“If I were a member of a race
minority, would I be able to take
it?” This is the question with
which Miss Mamie Davis, national
officer of the Young Women’s
Christian association, challenged
the members of the campus YWCA
sophomore commission in a speech
at the Y last week.
The theme of Miss Davis’s talk
was “What can I do as a Christian
student to eliminate minority pre
judice ?”
She said that the greatest fac
tors affecting prejudice against
race and minority groups are seg
regation, housing restriction, lack
of employment, limited job oppor
tunities, and restrictions on citizen
ship. The national Y officer con
tended that individuals of minori
ties had proven themselves out
standing citizens and neighbors
when given the opportunities which
common prejudices remove.
“Some prejudices are good,”
Miss Davis asserted. “If one does
not like fish he is exempt from par
taking of it. That is right for him,
but he must not use his prejudice
to afflict others or abuse his or
others’ rights.” Loyalty to school,
home, and nation are good preju
dices, the speaker said, as long as
they are not imposed upon those
who do not share them.
Miss Davis challenged the stu
dent to know state laws and to sep
arate them from common practice,
know school policies and practices,
and to offer friendship without be
ing over-sympathetic. She cau
tioned to take action only when
the situation is understood and all
the facts proven, to leave nothing
to chance, to aim at perfection, and
to make a periodic check on one's
own emotions concerning preju
cause of this tendency toward the
meticulous. He is 48 years old, and
was graduated from Dartmouth
college in 1921.
The Prix de Rome was awarded
the conductor in 1930. While in
Europe from 1930 to 1934 he re
ceived recognition for his abilities
as a conductor in a measure un
usual for an American-born musi
cian. He made numerous appear
ances as guest conductor in differ
ent countries, directing the Berlin
Philharmonic, Budapest Philhar
monic, Helsingfors Municipal or
chestra, and orchestras in Rome,
Turin, Bologna, and Riga.
Acclaimed by Critics
In Helsingfors two years ago he
conducted an all-Sibelius program
in the presence of the composer
which has become legendary in mu
sical circles.
Janssen is also termed “one of
the greatest Mozart conductors of
our time,” by critics. He has
gained a measure of recognition as
the first native New Yorker to
conduct the New York Philharmon
ic symphany orchestra.
The concert March 10 is spon
sored by the educational activities
board and will also include presen
tions of the Eugene Gleemen.
