ASKS TRUCE FLAG
IN MUSICAL WAR
PROF. JAHN READY FOR PEACE
CHALLENGE FOR BARNHART
Director of Choral Boclety Will Sur
render His Baton If Leader
of Apollo Club Will ,
'Resign > ' 1
Is Los Angeles a city large enough
to support two rival singing societies
with an ambition to produce oratorios?
Thla question has presented Itself
not onice but many times to Prof. Julius
Albert Jahn, director of the Los An
geles Choral society, 'and to Harry 11.
Barnhart, director of the Apollo club.
■ Prof. Jahn answers "No"; Mr. Barn
hart is silent. In order to encourage
musical progress Prof. Jahn announces
that he is willing to retire from the
leadership of the choral society on con
dition that Mr. Barnhart will resign
from the Apollo dub, so that the two
choruses can be united under some
third person's baton. If the greatest
good is to be accomplished Prof. Jahn
believes that the two singing societies
should merge into one strong, well
trained organization that can do Justice
to the works of, the great composers.
Too Many Choruses
The musical season in Los Angeles
was overcrowded with events last year.
"The Messiah" was sung by the choral
society and by the Apollo club. Each
chorus had Its loyal partisans and the
truth of the adage that comparisons
are odious and odorous was often put
to, the test. Before the autumn rehears
als begin It has been decided that peace
overtures should be tried. Although no
Indemnity Is asked, those who ; under
stand local sentiment declare that peace
negotiations ' between Prof. Jahn and
Mr. Barnhart will be quite aB difficult
to conduct diplomatically as are those
In which' M."Wltte and Baron Komura
are . concerned.
-Prof. Jahn will issue his demands
over his 'own signature next week and
while Mr. ■ Barnhart Is framing a reply
members of the two rival choruses will
practice " , St. Paul" under . the baton
of Director .Wrlghtson at Venice. " . .
Prof. Jahn Talks
Prof. Jahn said yesterday: "Loa An
geles cannot support two clubs like the
Apollo club and the choral society. I
have struggled for a long time to bring
the choral club up to its present stand
ard and I am willing to do anything
rather than see it decline. If there
