(Editor’s note: The guest col
umnist for this week is Elmer
Setzer, recently selected as vio
linist with the Cleveland Sym
phony Orchestra, one of the* na
tion’s finest. Born and educated
in Jacksonville, he is well known
to Jaxons. Beginning his study
of the violin with George Orner,
he later rounded out his educa
tion at the University of Florida
and then proceeded to the Pea
body Institute of Music in Balti
more to which he received a
scholarship.
The war interrupted his career
with the Baltimore Symphony
Orchestra, then under the baton
of Howard Barlow. He returned
to it however, after serving with
the army, and for the past three
and a half years has served as
assistant principal of the second
violins under Reginald Stewart,
who succeeded Barlow. He be
gins his first season with the
Cleveland Symphony Orchestra
this fall.
Setzer is married to the former
Marie de Maria, also a violinist.
He is the son of Mayer Setzer and
a brother of Mrs. Sidney Still
man. He is spending the summer
as the house guest of his father
and Dr. and Mrs. Stillman in
San Marco.)
When Teddy asked me to write
something for this column, I must
admit that I tried to bow out as
gracefully as possible. However,
Teddy can be quite persistent so
here I am—a violinist without
any violin, attempting to be a
journalist. Frankly, I would feel
much more at home with my
violin under my chin than with
pen in hand. But under the cir
cumstances (excuse the play on
words) —this is the time for
words, not action!
Most of us who are interested
in music are familiar with the
music of the great masters of the
past and are becoming more and
better acquainted with the music
of our contemporaries. However,
there is a music that we know
very little about which is coming
from a new country—lsrael. Be
cause of its youth, Israel has not
contributed much music to us,
but it has certainly made an au
spicious start.
It is music that combines the'
many cultures absorbed by the
Jews through many centuries of
dispersion throughout the world.
In the writer’s humble opinion,
music expresses our inner-most
feelings more completely than
any of the arts of self-expression.
The music of Israel is very ob
vious in its expression of the
drama of this new country and
its people.
The musicians of Israel are ful
filling their duty to their country
by being all the things an Israeli
must be. They have worked,
fought and died for Israel. While
the fighting was going on they
were able to devote only their

off-duty time to their music.
However, Israel is a country
where cultural expression is a
primary aim, and musicians are
regarded as valuable assets.
Their work is considered an im
portant service to the people and
they are encouraged to carry on
under all circumstances.
I have listened to some of the
new recordings that have come
•from Israel. The Israel Folk
Symphony Orchestra, under -the
direction of Marc Lavey, is made
up of veteran artists who have
had the finest Europeal# training
and experience as well as some
young native musicians of excep
tional ability. These records, is
sued by the Israel Music Found
ation, indicate that with proper
guidance and support this orches
tra will take its place among the
finer orchestras of the world.
Also on records are the voices
of two of Israel’s outstanding
operatic singers—Abraham Vil
komirsky, tenor, and Yosef a
Shocken, soprano. Each sings kn
aria from Puccini’s “La Tosca.”
Os special interest is the fact
that these memorable arias are
sung and recorded in Hebrew for
the first time in history. Both
singers give pointed evidence of
their high standing among the
Israeli artists. ,
Another beautiful recording is
that of Hatikvah which has been
the Hebrew anthem for approx
imately sixty years. Written as
a poem by Naphtali Hertz Imber
in 1878, it struck a chord of hope
for those who looked forward to
the establishment of a Jewish
State in Palestine. Set to music
by Samuel Cohen several years
later, the song came to be sung
by Zionists throughout the world.
In this record Regina Chomska,
soprano, accompanied by the Tel
Aviv Opera Choir and Tel Aviv
Workers Chorus gives a very
spirited performance of the beau
tiful melody.
It will be interesting and ex
citing to follow the progress and
development of the music of Is
rael. As the Israeli music grows,
so shall its culture; and as the
Israeli culture grows, so shall Is
rael. The seeds are well planted.
Tourist Traffic To

Presidents’ Portraits Are Symbols

Young residents of the shelter for newly arrived DPs, maintained by
United Service for New Americans, study the portraits of the first and
current presidents of their new homeland. The pictures, symbols of a '
freedom they never before knew, were gifts from the Foreign language
Press Film Critics Circle and were prominently displayed at the shelter’s
Fourth of July celebration.
The presentation of the striking portraits was made by Andrew
Valuchek, president of the Film Critics Circle, and Sigmund Gottlober,
executive director. It ended a search by the shelter staff for an appro,
priate picture of President Truman which was publicized recently in the
New York Times.
The work of United Service for New Americans, which carries out a
vast resettlement program here for Jewish displayed persons, is financed
through the United Jewish Appeal, now conducting its 1949 campaign
for $250,000,000.
