Its most capable instructors. Profes
sor I. M. Anderson, who recently re
signed the chair In Greek, has decided
to abide by his resignation and will
conclude his work at Augustana next
Thursday, when the fall term closes.
Professor Anderson leaves the local In-
stitution to accept the position of ac
tuary with the Scandla Life Insurance
company of Chicago. He has been a
director of that concern for several
Professor Anderson is a graduate of
AnguB'ana, being a member of the class
of 1S92. In 1S9S he received the de
gree of master of arts from his alma
mater. From 1893 to 1895 he was pro
fessor of English at Red Wing sem
inary at Red Wing, Minn. Later he
became professor of Greek at Gus
tavus Adolphus college, St Peter, Minn.,
which position he held for nine years.
He left that Institution in 1904 to ac
cept the chair in Greek at Augustana,
which position he has held since that
At the time of his resignation Profes
sor Anderson was etrongly urged by
the board of directors of Augustana to
reconsider his action. The student
body, with whom he is very popular,
also sought to persuade him to remain,
His leaving will occasion consider
able regret on the part of every one
connected with the institution.
In addition to his work at the col

On one occasion, Hartmann, Joachim,
Sarasate, Kreisler, and a well known
violinist whom this tale will designate
merely as Blank, were seated all to
gether at a cafe in Berlin, discussing
Hartmann's triumph of the evening be-
j fore, when he had publicly brought out
a new violin concerto with the greatest
imaginable success. Joachim, Sarasate
and Kreisler praised Hartmann's per
formance unstintedly, but the virtuoso,
Blank, branched out into a diatribe
against all modern violinists and in a
most personal manner turned his un
favorable criticism against the four
eminent players with whom he was
seated. Hartmann did not so much
mind the indignity to himself, but re
sented bitterly Blank's treatment of

a lance on the speaker s vanity, of
which he knew him to be possessed in
abundant measure. The one thing that
Blank prided himself upon, above all
others, was his technical proficiency
and as he ended his fiery preachment,
he exclaimed boastfully: "I am the
only violinist living today who repre
sents the tone traditions handed down
to us by the Immortal Paganinl. I think,
in fact, that I play hiB works better
than he did himself."
"A composer, when he is also a great
executant, usually is his own best in
terpreter," commented Hartmann.
"Not so," replied Blank, hotly. "Take
yourself as an example. I have heard
you play your famous 'Czardas.' I had
it on my program in Buda Pesth last
winter, and I played It a thousand times
better than you ever could."
"I don't agree with you at all," Hart
mann answered, quietly, "for I was at
the concert in question and I thought
you- played my 'Czardas' badly, quite
execrably, in fact."
Blank showed his utter amazement
In his face, and the other members of
'he party could not repress audible
chuckles. However, the boaster was
not to be put down so easily. He blurt
ed out: "There's your jealousy again.
I saw you at the concert. You eat in

mad and did not desist until you sue

with the same imperturable gravity,
that was because I liked the composition."
