mous Boston Symphony Orchestra had
to cope with In the early yean of Its
existence. Washington, the Canltal of
tne nation, wnere not only um ana and
sciences, but music, should be in Its
kishest form of development, is now
asked to assltt in either the establish
ment on a firm financial basis of the
Washington Symphony Orchestra or aa-
sist by not strinsT support in the pastlnc
of this organization "and the opportunity
to give Washington an Institution worthy
of every citisen'a support.
At a meeting of the board of directors
of. the .Washington Symphony Orchestra,
held last Thursday afternoon at the resi
dence of Mrs. Robert Hinckley. 16S Six
teenth Street Northwest, Helnricb Ham
mer, -the conductor of the orchestra,
made an eloquent plea for public sup
port -of the orchestra. He took up the
subject and discussed It from every view
point, giving the members of the board
and- those present bis experience of the
benefits of such organisations In com
munities where he has conducted sym
phony orchestras and oratorio societies.
Mr. Hammer said that the orchestra
is an educational Institution, and people
should not look upon It as giving to a
charity when they subscribe to its sup
port, but rather should feel that they are
giving to a great educational Institution
which will give its Influence to young
and old for the good of the community.
He said that In most Instances such or
ganisations have been founded by the
wealthy, and that such assistance has
always been necessary to the develop
ment of a symphony orchestra to the
Mr. Hammer is an able conductor and
his work In this line In Washington Is
well known to the musical public. He
was born October 27. 1882. at Erfurt, In
Germany, and began his career as a
conductor at the age of twenty at Old'
enburg. Following many successful en
gagements as conductor in Stockholm.
Oerebro, Amsterdam, Bochum (West'
phalla), Lausanne, Geneva, and other
places on the Continent, he came to
America and has shown his unques
tloned knowledge of his profession and
has won the approval of those who
know of his work.
Following Mr. Hammer's address the
board listened to a statement by J. Mar
tin Serannage. treasurer and manager
of the orchestra, who gives his time
without remuneration for the success of
a home Institution in which ho firmly
belives. Mr. Serannage gave a detailed
account of the amount subscribed for
tickets for the proposed series of con
certs for the present season and the
amount subscribed to- the guarantee
fund, and said that U.000 must be raised
in addition to the funds now on hand
and subscribed to carry the orchestra
through this season.
The board voted to announce the first
concert for December 10 at the Colum
bia Theater at 4:30 o'clock, and to wait
upon several of Washington's leading
citizens, explaining the situation to
them, and asking for their co-operation
If the money necessary for the main
tenance of the orchestra Is subscribed.
It Is planned to give. In udditlon to the
regular series of symphony concerts, a
series of educational concerts, for the
special benefit of the school children
and others who wish to become familiar
with the real makeup of a symphony or

prets. A short lecture will be given in
connection with these concerts on what
constitutes a symphony and the com

rt Is hoped that all Washington will
respond generously to this worthy cause
and will either subscribe for tickets or
to the guarantee fund as early as pos
sible, so that the board of directors of
the orchestra can make arrangements to
continue their plans for this season for
the regular and special series of con

It is now thirty-one years since the
Boston Symphony Orchestra was
lour.ded. by Henry Higxlnson. The first
twentv years was a hard struggle for
existence and Mr. Hlgglnson has many
times gone down into his pocket to wipe

1909, It Is declared that the irrh.,tn

the most perfect manner possible." and
that it Is "without a peer in this coun
try and without a superior in the
world." This proud position has been
attained by this organization in the space
of much less than thirty years, for it has
been for many years on Its present high
plane. The orchestra gives twenty-four

often Just the women whom one would
expect to find with secretaries tied to

to have said that social secretaries are

she does not want one. "Society women
