LOIS STEERS, of Lois Steera-Wynn Coman. returned last week from a vacation In Eastern Washington, and Immediately took up plans for tbe opening- of the 1915-16 music season In Portland. The opening- date has not yet been fixed, but the artist has been chosen. He is Fritz Krei6ler. the emi nent violinist, who has but recently arrived from the battlefield In Europe, where he was injured. v The coming- of Kreisler has a roman tic atmosphere about it that Miss Steers has discovered. Many who know of Krelsler's art with his yiolin were stunned when the news- trickled from, the European battlefield that he had been injured. All wondered if his mu siclanly capabilities had been disturbed by his wounds. He had given up his career when it was most brilliant to serve his country, but his injuries eventually made him less a soldier and more a musician, the satisfaction which tempered the news of. his mis fortune in the war zone. Kreisler has the soul of an artist, and therefore the experience in the war has lent color and even more feel ing to his sensitive nature. Kreisler is an artist who does not believe that, being one, he should not risk his life in war. He sought to return to the front after his wounds had healed, but some more sober coun sel stayed him. Kreisler was in reality permanently disabled as a soldier, but fortunately not disabled as a musician. The devastating weeks on the battle field and his subsequent personal ex perience have left his art nobler, finer and more poignant than It was a year ago. according to authorities who should know. Miss Steers expects to announce the opening date for Kreisler within a few days. For the season as a whole she promises an inviting array of talent and personality.
