make this address. The President’s
charge to the graduating class will
be eliminated to keep the cere
mony to approximately the same
time as the former commencement
The move has been discussed
with campus and local church

Traveled Violinist Joseph Szigeti
Noted for Many Uniaue Concerts
By BOB FUNK
Violinist Joseph Szigeti, who will
appear at 3 p.m. Sunday at McAr
thur Court, has led a life of unusual
variety since his entrance into the
field of concert music.
Not only has he played in many
of the world’s orthodox concert
halls, but also at such places as an
esperanto concert in London, where
everything was sung in that ton
He has played to “horizontal”
audiences of bed-ridden patients at
a sanitarium in Switzerland, to a
gathering of Red Army soldiers,
and before an audience at the as
sembly hall of the Palestinian Agri
cultural College of En-Charod.
The violinist has introduced
many new works for violin - Prok
ofieff’s Violin Sonata in F minor,
Stravinsky's "Divertimento,” Bar
tok's “Portrait," and he recently re
introduced Alban Bergs’ long-neg
lected Concerto and Sonatas for
violin and piano.
Ernest Bloch has written a num
ber of works especially for Szigeti,
Bela Bartok wrote a rhapsody for
violin and orchestra, and “Con
trasts’’ for him.
Szigti enjoys food to the fullest
extent. “My culinary taste is so
catholic that I would hesitate to
give you any one favorite menu. It
would be sad indeed if a much trav
eled virtuoso could ‘boil down’ his
preferences to one of two menus!”
The ‘‘greenish, unctuous Toareah
soup of Australia" stands high on
his list of culinary preference, how
Among his acquaintances, Szi
geti counts George Bernard Shaw.
The two met on at Atlantic cros
sing, at which time they discussed
the ‘‘good old days" in music. Shaw
and Szigeti both found it regret
table that Albert Einstein is the
only living notable who really looks
like a violinist.
