Inthe place of the musician, personally interpreting for his audiencethe classics of the masters, has come the canned variety of per¬formance with all the discordant din of the machinery which causesWillowmine Epp lives over inFoster Hall and is very well knownto the Fosterites. Fosterites talkglibly concerning the activities ofWillowmine. Not so long ago theywere telling the story that Willow¬mine had lost her sweetheart in anaccident. Fosterites, inquisitive,questioned Willowmine concerningthe tragedy. Said Willowmine non¬chalantly, “My fiance was killed in atrain accident.”Dexter Masters, editor of the1 Phoenix last year, is now in NewYork writing for that distinguishedpublication, “Time” magazine. LouieEngel tells the story of how Dexterwrote a letter to John Howe and leftoff in the middle of a sentence andposted the letter without signing it.A week later Howe received anotherletter which continued from thebroken off sentence and ended inanother broken sentence. A weeklater Howe received the final install¬ment w'ith Dexter’s signature. Tothose who know Masters this proce¬dure seems a trifle I nbalanced.Louie fengel says, “Maybe ‘Time’ isweighing heavily upon his hands.”It comes to the point where wemust beg your pardon again. Yes¬terday w’e attributed the idea of get¬ting the monkey for Phoenix ad¬vertising to Julian Jackson. TodayLou Cohen calls our attention to thefact that it was his idea. “It’s allright though,” said Louie, “becauseeveryone has been congratulating meon getting Paul Whiteman to thecampus.”Yesterday, fulfilling a two weekthreat, the Phoenix made its firstappearance. From the time you leftthe house in the morning till thetime you wearily trudged home atnoon someone was chasing you tobuy one. One of the cuter sales¬ladies approached Bob Graf in frontof Cobb and asked him to buy someof her wares. “I’ll buy si copies,”said Robert, “if you can get Brad¬shaw and Cunningham to buy onebetween them.” Under ordinary cir¬cumstances Robert would have beenquite safe, but the boys ganged onhim and bought a copy. As a resultRobert fulfilled his agreement,bought a half dozen copies, thengave them back.Ordinarily it isn’t this column’spolicy to run things like this, butthe following, taken from the Ore¬gon State Daily Barometer, is fartoo good to pass:THE BOOTLEGGER SYMPHONY(Tune: Little White Lies)Your nose was all a-glow,And a film was on your eyes.The night that you told me.Those little white lies.You said it was good stuff.But I found to my surprise.That you had deceived me.With little white lies.1 tried, but there’s no forgettin’How it burned my throat,I cried, and I’m sure regrettin’That you got my goat.My money was in your purse.So now I’ll put you wise.You’re going to be sorryFor those little white lies.It all happened in a course called“International Relationships” orsomething like that given by R.

Prof. Scott was giving a longwinded argument on the cause of allwars. “If someone could just takeFinland and isolate it and protectit, the chances of another war wouldbe greatly minimized,” said theProfessor. .And believe it or not,someone in the proverbial back rowuttered quite audibly, “Save the Fin¬nish and you save all.”Dr. Harshe tells the story aboutone of the harder boiled debs-about-town. whose chief theatre experi- Ience was that of the Service (Tlub, |who had the occasion to take in aStreeterville tea.

Consequently music has declined, at leastas far as the average person is concerned, from the field of the artsto a position on a par with the presses which grind out literature orthe air hammer which roughly forms a colossal work in marble. Itis no longer music, it is a bottled reproduction of what was original¬ly music, just as the press is the bottled consummation of theauthors’ thoughts and ideas.But the most noticeable and regrettable feature of this develop¬ment is the loss of originality in the music produced today. A smalhgroup turning out Wagner and Chopin by the yard can hardly beexpected to find much inspiration in grinding out the works of theimmortals on a purely wholesale basis. Neither can an audiencelistening to the scratchings of imperfect reproducing mechanismsbe expected to gain a very great knowledge of what constitutes Imusic and what is required in making for originality. Coming fromthe same musicians again and again, the compositions lose theirflexibility and resolve themselves into so many musical theoremswhich are demonstrated over and over again with unbearable mon¬otony.Finally all sense of good music is being dulled. A limited num¬ber of productions have been put forth which by far lack anythingapproaching completeness and confine themselves mainly to accom¬paniments to the scenes appearing on the silver screen. Chief amongthese are two or three serenades, the most sentimental love songs,a few marches, and now and then a popular aria from Verdi. Therest of the selections—if they can be called such—are worthlessmixtures of the jazziest jazz, varying from the wails of love-tornhearts to baby-talk.The consequent release of many musicians from work has add¬ed to the dilemma by discouraging the study of music. The remain- .ing members of what was formerly a noble vocation have been iforced to turn their talents to a variety of fields and so have lost |in the jack-of-all-trades deal their proficiency in one chosen field. !TTe new influx of material, trained for versatility rather than ex- !cellence, continues markedly the downward trend of the art. jLittle hope of a change is in sight at present. Tlie only solu¬tion seems the creation of added interest in concerts, operas, andsymphony appearances. Leaders in the fight to sponsor this move¬ment 'have been James Petrillo, president of the Chicago musicians’union, and Joseph Weber, president of the national organization.The unemployment of countless musicians has become a recentburden which adds bitterness to the already bitter state of affairsin the eyes of these men.Tomorrow Paul Whiteman, leading exponent of a new phaseof American music, comes to the campus under the auspices of'The Daily Maroon. His appearance should be an incentive for those ,who like music to attend if possible. Inasmuch as the concert isfree, everyone should take advantage of the opportunity.Tfie selections to be played by Mr. Whiteman are of a widevariety and offer numbers which appeal to almost every taste.

I need not argue this pointsurely. Professor Betts of Northwes¬tern has just published “The Beliefsof Seven Hundred Ministers,” the re¬sult of an elaborate questionnairesent to leading clergy of all tbeleading Christian bodies. The repliesshow quite clearly the expected di¬visions into the two groups of TlB-erals and conservatives. The per¬centages of those rated as conserva¬tively orthodox are for the Luth¬erans 94; for Baptists 70, for Pres¬byterians 58; for Episcopalians 58,while the Methodists are in the for-. ties and the congregationalists in thetwenties. On* miracles:—the atone¬ment, Biblical inspiration, the res¬urrection of the body, the nature ofthe Church,—there is a wide divers-Tty of belief,—but there is 'oneproposition which commanded theunanimous support of all the clergy,—they all believed in the existenceof God.Cod is a datum of actual religiousexperience.1 know His existence cannot be beproved. 1 mean 1 cannot be so dem-onstratably established that to doubt Ihis existence would be to acknowl- iedge insanity.
