Farlow, both of whom he claimed
were not being properly proTid

The defendant did not admit
he was a member of the Com

but he did say he thought be was
entitled to get food for these
women and to use fere iifi

had not been able to help, he
would have sought relief from a
grocery store.

David Campbell, guest artist
The director, Lena Belle Tar
tar, has during the past season
worked out a combination of vole
es, both men's and women's
which give promise of a splendid'
ly superior chorus. A year of
gruelling work, of culling and
training, of combining and unify
ing was plainly evidenced in the
praiseworthy results of the spring
The soprano section appeals to
the reviewer as one of excellence
rarely found in such choruses.
Free and soaring in every part
this section brought a brilliance
to the chorus numbers that
stamped the memory.
The reviewer felt the need of
greater support from the alto sec
tion and with such numbers as
To the Spirit of Music" and
'Come Away Death" this support
seemed to be given with compli
mentary results.
An Innovation with this year s
work of the chorus nnder Miss
Tartar, has been the introduction
of a men's section of basaand
tenor. The wisdom of this de
velopment was plainly evident ln
the final number, "Bridal Cho
rus" from The Rose Maiden by
Cowen. Animated, full throated,
and with harmonious unity the se
lection brought a delightful eve
ning of music to a close.
The male chorus too, added
splendid balance to the program

excellent addition to the Mac

NEW YORK, April 20 (AP) After scraping the bot
tom of the barrel for three tense years the man in the
street has suddenly come upon three new syllables, inflation,
and today he is wondering what they they mean to him.
Does the word spell a job, or higher wages, or better
ririces for his Droducts or will it cost him more to live? If
inflation, merely a catch word up
to now, is iunaamentauy a neai
thy tonic, why wasn t it pre
scribed before?
The answers to these questions
lead into a maze of national and
international economic matters
hlch are in turn complicated by
political considerations. Even rec
