Praise for Performance
Of “Ninth Symphony”
Entire Presentation at Constitution
Hall, Except Three Soloists,
In Hands of Local Talent.
By ALICE EVERSMAN.
UNSTINTED praise should be awarded the National Symphony Orchestra
and the singers who participated in the performance of Beethoven’s
"Ninth Symphony” yesterday afternoon at Constitution Hall. But the
fine work diu not begin nor end with this final number on the pro
gram, but characterized the orchestra’s playing of the "Leonore Overture No.
3” and the chorus’ singing on "The Heavens Resound," as arranged by Felix
muiu, ana aicuiiipuiueu ay me urines- *
tra. For this number the combined
glee clubs of George Washington
University, of which Dr. Robert Howe
Harmon is director, and the Washing
ton Choral Society, Louis Potter, di
rector, were used. Ii. the symphony,
in addition to the chorus, Alice George,
soprano; Lucille Browning, contralto;
Albert Gifford, tenor, and the Wash
ington baritone, William Fletcher
Smith from the Gretchen Hood studios,
were heard in the solo parts.
Since, with the exception of three
of the soloists, the entire performance
was in the hands of local talent, one
can justly be proud of the finish
which marked yesterday's presenta
tion and grateful for a public demon
stration of the standard of musician
ship in the city. What these two
groups of musicians undertook to do
was a difficult piece of work and had
they succeeded only fairly well one
would have been pleased and happy
with the result. But there was no
"fairly well," to be said of yesterday’s
performance, it was splendid, and
sincerest congratulations are offered
to the two choral directors, to Dr.
Kindler for his work with the orches
tra and in blending the whole, and to
the singers and orchestra men for the
sensitiveness of their portrayal.
Last Concert of Festival.
The festive atmosphere, for this
was the last concert of the Beethoven
Festival, was evident the minute one
entered the hall. Arranged on the
stage and filling the first boxes on
each side were the singers, the bright
colors of the women's dresses set off
by the more conventional black the
men wore. The w'hole group formed
as picturesque a background as any
scenery could provide, with the orches
tra occupying the front of the stage.
In its performance of the opening
number it played like an ensemble of
veterans of more than seven seasons.
It has gained incredibly in elasticity,
and yesterday what this means in
greater beauty of expression was the
golden touch put into the "Leonore
Overture.” Never has the National
Symphony produced such finely spun
pianissimos nor such an even growth
of crescendo as in this number. It
W'as a splendid specimen of shadings
worked out to the nth degree and I
springing from a real emotional im- I
pulse, and it made of the overture an ^
outstanding number on the program.
The same sensitivity pervaded the
monumental “Ninth Symphony,” with i

TRAFFIC IS TIED UP
AS CAR JUMPS TRACK
A traffic policeman narrowly
escaped serious Injury and a dozen
street cars were tied up In a traffic
jam this afternoon when a stream
lined street car jumped the tracks at
Fourteenth and F streets N.W.
Policeman A. B. Cldwell, directing
traffic at the Intersection, suffered a
sprained wrist when hit by the car,
which was southbound on Fourteenth
street and which left tracks as the
rear wheels tried to follow the east
bound switch down F street. N
While traffic was at its height and
hundreds of Christmas shoppers
jammed the sidewalks and streets
a dozen street cars lined Fourteenth
street from Pennsylvania avenue al
most to New York avenue.
The car, which was loaded with
passengers, was emptied when it came
to a halt after skidding about 30 feet
down the hill toward Pennsylvania
avenue.
A hastily called squad from the
transit company’s repair shop had the
car back on the tracks in half an hour.
The car was piloted by R. Schwartz.
the only let down in the adagio,
where the spirit lagged a little and
there was less of unanimity in the
ensemble. Otherwise the symphony
was given a noble reading—vigorous,
precise and lofty. The balance of the
orchestral voices was well maintained
and there was keenness of attack and
breadth of line of grandiose charac
ter. Dr. Kindler, inspired himself,
cast his influence over his men to
bring forth a magnificent perform
ance.
Chorus Singing High Point.
But the high point of the entire
program was the singing of the chorus
and soloists. First, in “The Heavens
Resound," and again in the glorious
finale of the symphony, where Bee
thoven sang a paean of joy to words
by Schiller, the massed voices let
forth their volume in a stirring climax
to a stirring program. Throughout the
difficult music of the symphony the
voices retained their sweetness of
tone even in the taxing, sustained
high notes.
More than this, the vocal color bal
anced and blended perfectly and the
two groups of singers were as one in
trueness of intonation, in clarity of
diction and in precision o' attack.
Their performance was a triumph
both for the members and the direc
tors. The quality of tone and the
musical ability of these two'choruses
stood out prominently in the sonorous
“The Heavens Resound" and the surg
ing power of Hie symphony finale, and
having so splendidly proved their
caliber, it is to b-> hoped that a repe
tition of the “Ninth Symphony" will
be included in the “request program '
at the end of the season if hot be
fore.
The four soloists sustained their
part of the performance expertly. The
music which Beethoven has written
for the solo voices is not comfortable
to sing, demanding at every moment
the utmost from each singer. In solo
passages, in duet and in four-part en
semble the individual character of the
quartet's voices added a particular
color to the vocal part of this “Ode to
Joy." The greatest enthusiasm pre
vailed in the audience as well as a
more precious ncte of appreciation,
wrapt attention. Yesterday's concert
marks a milestone in the musical prog
ress of the orchestra and the choral
groups and presages a future of still
greater achievements.
Bedtime Stories
By THORNTON W. BURGESS.
Give me stor*" *',d ' ■
But *lve me stories th*t are true.
—Farmer Brown s Boy.
'T'HE last of the furry guests of the
Woodhouse Night Club had de
parted by way of the private entrance,
i which was the cat-hole originally
made for the sole use of Puss, the big
Cat who was Aunt Sally’s companion.
“Have they gone for good?” asked Sue.
Aunt Sally shook her head. “No,”
she said. “They will be back again.
They come and go all night. There
still is a lot of food in the pan* as
you can see, but in the morning the
pans will be licked clean.”
“Do they ever come in the day
time?” Sammy wanted to know.
Again Aunt Sally shook her head.
"Never," raid she. “That is they never

come in broad daylight. Sometimes
it isn’t quite dark when the first of the
Skunks arrive, but usually the Black
Shadows are not far away. The Coons
never come until after dusk.”
“Which were the easiest to get ac
quainted with?” Tommy asked.
Aunt Sally chuckled. ‘‘The Skunks,
of course,” said she. "That biggest one
that you saw a little while ago was in
my lap and I was stroking her within
less than five minutes by the clock the
very first time she ever was in here to
my knowledge. But it sometimes takes
a long time to win the confidence of
the Coons. The youngsters, even after
they see mother and father climbing
into my lap, usually are a long time
getting confidence enough to venture
up here. But sooner or later they
come.
Then there is a difference in indivi
duals just as in human folks. Some
are timid. Some are bold. Some are
nervous. Some seem to have no nerves
at all. Some are suspicious. Some are
trustful. No two are just alike. It
always makes me smile when I read
positive statements about the wild folk
and their habits, and that they will or
will not do this or that. You see what
one does another of the same kind
may not do at all. Getting acquainted
with them is great fun.” *
"Have you ever been bitten by one?”
asked Tommy.
"No,” replied their gentle hostess,
“but I’ve had a young Coon give me
the Eskimo salute.”
"What is that?” demanded Sammy.
Aunt Sally laughed softly. "I’ll tell

you about It.” said she. "It happened
last summer. Both Father Coon and
Mother Coon came in and they
brought seven children. Four of them
were always with father and the
others with mother. Both father and
mother used to climb into my lap, but
for quite a while the youngsters were
content to eat from the dishes on the
floor. Father’s four were much less
timid than mother’s three and after
a while began coming to my lap and
soon would let me stroke them. Moth
er's charges remained shy. Then one
evening after mother had fed from my
lap one of the youngsters ventured up
the steps. For a long time he hesitated
on the top step, all the time studying
my face. The rascal was trying to
make sure that I was all right.
"At last he got into my lap. but be
fore doing more than smell of the
cruller I was holding for him he stood
up on his hind feet, put his little black
hands against my breast, reached up
and touched noses with me. Of course
I didn’t move. Then he settled down
to eat, but five times he stopped and
stood up to rub noses with me. After
that he never was afraid to climb in
my lap, and from him the other two
gained confidence. That is absolutely
true. It happened just as I have told
it. But it wouldn’t do for me to say
Coons are in the habit of rubbing
noses with people, for they are not.
That is the only one who ever gave
me that salute and he did it only that
time.”

Stradivari
Festival
Ends
Concert Saturday
Ninth Honoring
Violin Mak^r.
HE ninth and concluding concert
of the Stradivari Bicentennial
Festival Saturday night at the
Library of Congress, held on
the date of the great instrument
maker's death anniversary and spon
sored by the Gertrude Clarke Whittall’s
Foundation, was the crowning event in
honor of the famous craftsman of
musical instruments.
Four masterpieces from Stradivari's
hand, in a perfect state of preserva
tion, donated to the Library by Mrs,
Whittall and supplemented by four
others, loaned for the occasion by
Mrs. Herbert N. Straus, withstanding
the wear and tear of two centuries,
thrilled the audience by the gorgeous
ness of mere sound, luscious and vel
vety in quality and extraordinarily
powerful when combined in a single
effort by eight players.
It was one of those concerts when
the artistry of the pi vrrs and the
mu'ric performed takes a second place
in the face of the achievement of
one who was able to create a perfect
medium of expression and who on
merit occupies a place of no less im
portanc. in the world of music.
Mendelssohn Octet Played.
And yet the Saturday's program
held more than one feature. As its
opening number it introduced a
work of unusual beauty, the rarely
heard Felix Mendelssohn's ‘ Octet in
E Flat Major, Op. 20,” performed in a
technically impeccable manner by
eight artists: The Stradivarius Quartet
of New York, Wolfe Wolflnsohn arid
Bernard Robbins, violias; Marcel
Dick, Viola, and Iwan d'Archambeau,
cello, and assisting artists, Samuel
Gardner and Edwin Ideler, violins:
Conrad Held, vk>!a, and Horace Britt,
Cello.
The octet for four violins, two violas
and two cellos is an outstanding work
in music literature, being among the
first compositions written for a double
quartet of instruments. Composed
by Mendelssohn at the age of 16, but
published later, the octet breathes
inspiration in every measure, its
"Scherzo” being the ost representa
tive movement of the composer's style.
Dainty, based on the imaginary, in
the portrayal of which Mendelssohn
excelled, it gives the performers an
opportunity to exercise their imagina
tion likewise. In he otherwise excel
lent reading of the octet Saturday
night this point was somewhat over
looked, the "Scherzo” lacking the
phantastic element, was not delicate
enough, contrary to the composer’s
special stress placed in the subtitle,
indicating an "extreme lightness" of
execution. On the whole the work is a
mast graceful one. strong and virile in
its first movement, reminding one of
Brahms' style. It moves along sweep
ingly, giving every instrument an
occasional opportunity of being heard
individually.
Famons Violin Heard.
Because of the richness and round
ness of sound produced in the octet,
the Schumann's "Quartet in F Ma
jor, Op. 41, No. 2,” abounding in
lovely melodies and second on the
program, was rather pallid in effect.
However, most pleasing was the ren
dition of "Andante Quasi Variazionl,”
in which the two violins had promi
nence. following one another and giv
ing thus the listener a chance to hear
the second famous violin of the Whit
tall collection, the "Ward” Btradiva
rius.
After the performance of the octet,
the musical program was interrupted
in order to allow Jay C. Freeman to
give a brief outline of Stradivari's
career and of his contribution to
posterity in the 80 years of his inde
fatigable craftsmanship. Mr. Free
man concluded his talk with the
description of the instrument in use
Saturday night, fashioned by Stradi
vari between the years 1685 and 1727.
Romantic Style Stressed.
This outstanding program empha
sizing the romantic style in music
came to a close with Ernest Chaus
son's "Concerto in D Major, Op. 21”
for violin, piano and string quartet,
played by Louis Krasner, violinist:
Beryl Rubinstein, pianist, and the
Stradivarius Quarter, who presented
the work with a fine ensemble and
spirit. This composition of poignant
beauty and refinement, more subtle
than the preceding two numbers on

Besides the broad lines on which rests !

composition, as other works by this |

inner pattern, the presentation of j
