Editor Oregon Statesman:
It seems appropriate to give
voice to the sentiment which
arises in one when privileged to
listen to beautiful music such as
was broadcast from KGW last eve
ning (Dec 15) when a trio of
skilled musicians played the Trio
in-C. Minor composed by Dr. R.
W. Hans :- Seitz. ; Those who ap
preciate the old I masters cannot
help being Impressed with the
beauty of this modern ; master's
work, with its andante movement
containing a melody as haunting
ly sweet as a Schubert symphony,
Its Menuetto reminiscent of Mozart
in Its clarity and fidelity of
rythm- and form.' and the entire
four movements making a touch
ing, inspiring whole.
This listener, j for one, feels
moved to express deep personal ap
preciation and pride that a must
clan of not only great interpretive
ability as many know but also
of rare, creative talent, is a citi
zen of our town. ' i
Having some years ago arrived
at the conclusion that the impulse
to give honest praise should never
be stifled, I venture to hope that
you may find epace in your col
umns for this yetter.

to rest up from Its 10 day spurt
on the six month, legislative high

White House the only bill In the

Into Its favorite pastime of pro
lit was a typical senate day. A
dozen or more senators constantly
were on their feet clamoring ' for
recognition, each with a pet pro
posal to offer.
Pages were kept scurrying hith
er and thither about the crowded
chamber c a r ry 1 n g resolutions,
bills and "sundry petitions and
memorials," from senators' desks
to the clerk's place near the vice
president who literally was swamp
ed before the senate's celebrated
"morning hour" for receiving sen
atorial offerings had ended.
As shouts of "Mr. President, Mr.
President," reverberated against
his eardrums, Mr. Dawes kept his
ivory gavel conviently in his right
hand, rapped with it occasionally
and recognized senators in the or
der In which he could move his
vision about the chamber. The
racket and confusion was so In
tense that he found It Impossible
to determine the order In which
appeals for recognition were made.
Before closing its doors to the
public to consider nominations the
senate concurred In the house ac
tion for holiday recess from
December' 21 to January 4, and
put threjsgh several bridge bills.
;" Then with the public excluded
and members puffing away : at
their, cigars or cigarettes, the sen
ate had a brief battle over the
nomination of Dwlght W. Morrow
of ' New Jersey to be ambassador
to Mexico. From behind the clos
ed doors came the word that the
former partner In the J. P. Mor
gan banking firm had been oppos
ed by the hard-hitting Reed, of
Missouri, and young La Follette,
After the talk had subsided,
Morrow's nomination was con
