AT CONCERT IN
Leginska, Piano, and Kindler,
'Cello, Shift Abruptly From
Classic to Ultra-Modern.
it was a daring program presented
by Leginska, pianist, and Hans
Kindler. 'cellist, at the National
Theater yesterday afternoon, for the
second concert of the Ten-Star Series
under the direction of T. Arthur
Smuith. With no transition, this program
went abruptly from the classic of
lBrahms and Bach to the ultra modern
gn Leginska herself as composer, and
in an Ornstein sonata for 'cello and
piano. though the tatter was absolute
music bearing a racial touch almost
ritualistic. It was not Ornstein the
Leginska and Kindler have a rare
sympathy between them in concerted
work. Roth artists are highly imagi
native, and with Leginska the mystic
in music was dominant, making the
piano suffuse its tone quality into
that of the deep-hued 'cello.
Vague Tone Color.
With a vague dark tone color, with
reserve and gentle theme painting, the
E minor Brahms sonata for 'cello and
piano, opus 38, was given with a de
lightful interchange of melody, the
classic forms having an infinite variety
of character and execution, both
artists keenly sensing the Brahms
rhythm. Suave melody brought out
the rich tones of the 'cello. while
fantasy was captured charmingly in
the piano scot-e.
The Ornstein sonata, opus 52, had
a first hearing here. It is oriental
and most poetic, with its singing
themes' vibrantly given by 'cello. while
throughout the sco"e the piano seems
to paint another picture. detached yet
like a scenic and at times an eto
tional background for the impassion
ed love songs, the sadness and the
beauty of the 'cello's singing roaring
richly against the fatalistic reitera
tion of the piano themes.
A tone picture and a mad mood
werte the two ,ompositiotls that
brought Mme. Leginska to us as com
poser. She played as piano solos her
own "Gargoyles of Notre Dame" and
a "Scherzo" after a poem of Tagore.

Then, iconoclastic, with dissonan- s
in mad joy, comes Leginska's idea of
the Tagore philosophy, "For I know
'tis the height of wisdom to he
drunken and go to the dogs." it's
reckless. not always forceful, fantasic
and all smudged in tone; more in tth
manner of impressionistic painting

Williams was born January 15, 1837,
at Newton Stewart, County Tyrone,
Ireland. He came to America with
his parents when he was three months
old. At the outbreak of the war be
tween Mexico and the United States in
1847, he tried to enlist as a drummer
boy, but was repeatedly rejected,
owing to his youth. In talking of his
attempts to enlist during that war,
Williams tells an amusing incident of
how his father found him in one of
the recruiting stations and gave him
a spanking in the presence of the
army officers. He declares that he
will never forget the spanking as long
as he lives.
Enlists in Civil War.
In 1861, when President Lincoln
called for volunteers for what was sup
posed to be three months' service.
Williams enrolled as a private with
Company A of the Sixth Indiana Vol
unteers. A t first this regiment was
one of numerous three-months organ
izations. He enlisted on April 19.
1861, and was discharged on Saturday,
August 2, of the same year. Williams
left that night for his home. The
next morning he attended church with
the members of his family as had been
the custom for years.
That night, following supper, he
bade farewell to his father and mother
and started back for camp, arriving
early Monday morning. lie re-enlisted
for three years on August 4, 1861. He
was a participant of the battle at

Then came the mustering out of the
Union army, following the surrender
of General Lee. Williams. having ac
quired a taste for army life, did not
go out with the rest, but decided to
remain in the afmy. He saw active
service in the fights against the red
skins of the Western frontier. While
serving with the Third U. S. Infantry
he was in several fights with the gal
lant General Custer, of the Seventh U.
S. Cavalry. On June 8, 1878, he was
retired from the army as a second lieu
tenant, and was promoted to first
lieutenant in 1904. In talking of his
civil war experience, he objects to the
term. "civil war," as he cannot see
anything "civil" in war. He prefers
the term, "war between civilisation."
Realizing that the war between the
United States and Germany was com
ing, he applied for restoration to
active duty with the army on the
3d of April. 1917. On account of his
age, however, his request was turned
down. Being an Irishman, he would
not acknowledge defeat and kept after

When asked why he insisted on be

Williams said, "I am an American,

country calls, no one should be too
