WEDNESDAY, JAN. tl!, IDlil
PADEREWSKI HAS PEETRED Ol T
As Pianist-Lalmr a.s Statesman Hos
Operated Against Him.
Now Vork, Jan. s. Two years ago
Ignace Jan Paderowski, world famous
pianist, stood in "Old Hall," Warsaw,
where he Ural played, and where
Chopin t? i's I played, and told an au
dience of fellow-Poles, ?bat he had
conic back to give his life, if neces
sary, to tho cause of Polish freedom.
Poland is now established as one
of the free nations of the world. Hut
tho sequel, which lias just reached
this country-the story of Paderow
ski as he ls to-day-furnishes an
other tragedy of the World War.
Fortune Said to Ile Clone.
Paderowski probably will never be
heard on tho concert stage again.
Furthermore, his fortune is said to
bo gone. In the days when Allied vic
tory was more a matter of faith than
of assurance, when the German arm
ies still hold largo sections of Russia,
Padereswkl had raith. Ile had faith
in Allied victory, and faith that such
a victory might moan freedom for
Poland. Ha closed his piano and de
clared that he would never touch it
again until Polish independence was
realized. He stepped out of his life
as an artist into the life of a diplo
mat and international politician. Day
and night ho workod for recognition
of tho Polish cause. Ile approached
American loaders with the enthusi
asm of a child, spreading out maps
on the floor, and tracing out the
boundaries of tho Poland that was
to bo, even though tho German arm
ies still held complete sway on tho
front that must bo broken to liberate
his home country.
His I'la no lx>ng Closed.
Then carno President Wilson's
enunciation of tho fourteen points. A
free Poland was one of the "points."
With the armistice Paderowski re
turned to Poland. Ile became pre
mier and represented the Poles at the
peace conforonco. Hut during all of
this time his plano remained closed.
Tho slender, artistic hands dealt only
with papers, or were given to grasp
ing tho hands of others who might
aid Poland, instead of flying over tho
keys, bringing forth music that had
moved tho world.
Can't ito turn to Stage Now.
And tho roports now arc that the
famous pianist's hands have stiffen
ed. As thc result of the lack of prac
tice at his plano, Paderewskl's An
gora now have lost their remarkable
He is still Paderowski, the artist,
as well as the statesman, but word
to one of his friends here is that ho
will probably not be able to return
to the concert stage, despite the fact
that tho fortune he built up bas now
practically disappeared. Ho will torr,
to lecturing and possibly to piano
instruction, should he relire from his
prosenl political activities, is the be
lief of friend., hore.
The call for financial assistance
Vins been constant in Poland. Upon
abandoning bis artistic career for the
cause of Polish freedom, Paderowski
not only gave all of bis physical and
mental effort, but threw bis finan
cial resources Into (he fight. Ile had
extensive property interests, but all

STEERS FATTEN ON SILAGE
Remarkable daine, Considering Natur*

Steers cnn be fattened profitably on
com silage alone according to a series
of tests conducted at the South Da
kota experiment station. Thc steers
didn't get off their feed nor were there
any bad results In feeding silage as
the sole ration. At thc close of the
tests each year the cattle were
shipped to the Chicago market, sold as
killers, and brought within a fow cents
of the market top.
"The gains have b??en remarkable
considering the nature of tho feed,"
said Director Wilson. *Tn many cases
the gains havo been larger than cattle
of the same age have made on pos
