; C. U. WILL TEACH i LITURGICAL MUSIC I ‘ I School Is Established With Trust Fund of $1,000,000, Rector Announces. i Establishment of a School of Liturgi cal Music at Catholic University of America, with a trust fund of >1,000,000, was announced last night by Right Rev. James H. Ryan, rector of the university. The fund was made available through the Dom Mocquereau Schola Cantorum Foundation, a New York corporation, whose object is education in Gregorian chant and classic polyphony ?.nd other closely allied branches of music. The trustees of the foundation are Rev. William J. De Longchamps of tire Catholic University, Mother G. Stevens, R. S. C. J.. of the Pius X Sschool of Li turgical Music, in New York, and Mrs. J. B. Ward of New York, who is the found er of the latter school and through whose generosity the foundation was made possible. Course* to Be Offered Soon. The task of establishing the new’ •chool of music was completed by the executive committee and board of trus tees of the university. The university, at its coming Sum mer session, will give a limited num ber of courses in liturgical music. The university board of trustees has already assigned a site on the campus, where the building for the School of Liturgical Music will be erected at once. This building will be close to the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the uni versity church now under construction. Mgr. Ryan hopes that construction of the new music school building will be gin at once. The School of Liturgical Music will be administered by Dr. Des Longchamps. who already has been elected dean of the school. Dr. Des Longchamps has been professor of music at Catholic University for the past four years. He prepared for his teaching work in the best schools of liturgical music in Eu rope, in Rome, Vienna, Beuron, and with the Fathers of Solesmes. A facul ty, many of the members of w’hlch are leaders of international fame in their respective fields, is being organised by Des Longchamps and will be ready to give regular instruction at the opening of the new school year. Special em phasis will be placed on teaching and research in the liturgy of the church, under the direction of a prominent Eu ropean scholar, whose name will be an nounced shortly. Open to Undergraduate*. The school will be open to under graduate students preparing for the degree B. S. in music. The aim will be not only to prepare choir leaders and teachers of 6hurch music, but also research students in the various de partments of this important branch of artistic knowledge. The school will offer courses in liturgical music, school music, applied music, theory, harmony, counterpoint and fugue, and graduate courses leadingrto higher degrees. The curriculum will follow closely the courses of study now being given at such famous schools as the Pontifical School of Sacred Music in Rome and the Academy of Church Music in Vienna. The School of Liturgical Musie will eonfine Its work to the field of chant and classical church music, and will not engage in general musical educa tion. Its fundamental purpose is to build up a better understanding and appreciation of Gregorian chant and of classic polyphony. All modern vocal church music composed since Pales trina is excluded expressly from the objectives of the school. LOW-WING MONOPLANE, NEW TYPE, IN SERVICE Private Owner Take* Machine to Boanoke for Use in Training Aviation Students. The first commercial type low wing monoplane which has been seen in this city left Washington Airport today for Roanoke, Va., where it is to be used for training student pilots and for rental to aviators who wish to make pleasure flights or to increase their flying time. The odd-looking craft, an Aeromanne- Klemm two-place plane, was flown here yesterday from Keyport, N. J., where it was built by D. K. Steele, its owner. It is the fourth plane of the type made and the first sold to a private owner. Led off his course by a faulty com pass. Mr. Steele did not arrive at Bolling Feild until yesterday afternoon, trans ferring his plane later to the commer cial field. At both places it attracted considerable attention from flying peo ple because of its low landing speed and unusual type of . construction. The plane is powered with a 40-horse power Salmson radial motor and car ries but 15 gallons of gasoline, which give it a cruising radius of more than 400 miles. . • *■■ • , UFA to Make Talkie*. .
