"Art," he continued, "is a manifes

representative but presentative arts.
Music was one ot the arts that was
not subject to restrictions. The plas
tic arts were warned against because
of their leanings toward' IdoUtry, It
was not until alter the destruction
ot tbe Herodian temple that music
was taken out of the' Israelites' life,
which was not an expression of hatred
of art, but resulted from tbe great na-

He offered a proof of the value ot
this knowledge ot setting, when he
turned to the Psalms of the Bible, and
pointed out that the many untransla

were merely musical terms that have
been left untranslated because of
their universal coinage.
