Composers in United States
' Got Busy With Excel
The European war and the de
velopment of radio have brought
about a new "declaration of inde
pendence" in America, according
to Sigmund Romberg, composer
of ' The Staudect Prince," "The
Desert Song" -and other popular
light operas, who will be heard
on the air for the first time In the
Chevrolet hour of the General Mo
tors Family Party on Monday eve
nine. March IP-
"Prior to 1914." says Romberg,
"most of the musical shows pro
duced in this country were
brought over from Vienna. When
war was declared it became diffi
cult to continue using European
compositions, so composers In the
United States began to assert
themselves and now radio has
made, their songs known through
out the country. As a conse
quence. America today leads the
world in. musical productions.
' The only reason we do not
send more American-made light
operas to Germany and Hungary
Is that they can t afford to pay
for them. The English take all
shows we give them. Very few
musical shows are produced in
England or Europe now because
most of their bet composers are
-working in this country."
Romberg was born in Hungary
and studied to become a construc
tion engineer. He never attended

Floyd B. Johnson, director ruiaur station in Chicago, is confident that marriage improve the voice

the unmarried start, have eosae forward to relate Johnson's remark
a musical school but took lessons
casually from private 'teachers'
and did not become a professional
until he came to America nearly
twenty years ago. Since then he
has become one of the foremost
modern composers. His first of
ferings were of the popular song
bit type, and were found in "The
Whirl of tho World" at the Win
ter Garden, whjch he wrote in
1913, and in "The Passing Show
of 1914." for which he also com
posed the music. He was one of
the first musicians to evolve the
"revue" type of entertainment. In
later years he has achieved un
usual dlstincting in the field of
ligilt opeera with Blue Paradise,
Maytime. Girl From Brazil, Her
Soldier Boy, Sinbad, Music Mel

In the Chevrolet hour on the

most melodious and best known
selections at the piano, with or

Considerable Aid to Flying
Would Be Done by Cor
WASHINGTON (AP) To elim
inate a serious hazard to aviation
which is developing rapidly in
commercial centers, the Federal
Radio Commission may find it
necessary to order 'owners of
broadcasting stations to mark
their towers in order to increase
the visibility to fliers.
Areonautlcal experts of the
Army, Navy and Commerce depart
ments have approved methods of
marking air navigation obstruc
tlons such as radio masts, trans
mission towers -and flag poles in
the immediate vicinity of an air
port, intermediate landing field or
Three methods of painting are
recommended: For the maximum
desired visibility, towers less than
250 feet in heigth should be paint
ed alternate bands of white and
chrome yellow separated by black
bands one half the width of the
white and chrome yellow bands.
As an alternative, the towers
could be painted with bands of
chrome yellow and black. As an
other alternative, the towers could
be painted with bands of black
and white or black and alunium.
From sunset to sunrise, the towers
should be marked with red lights,
making 80 to 120 flashes a min
ute. In order to afford adequate
protection to aircraft, the expert
recommended that lights of higher
candle power be used on major
obstructions in the vicinity of
Additional fixed red lights using
50 watt lamps are suggested for
radio towers, one being placed at
two-thirds of the height and one
at one-third of the height of the
tower. These lights would be ar
ranged so as to be visible from
any angle of approach.

Efforts to Clear Interference

WASHINGTON. (AP) The
