more oriented towards putting
on performances and less to

are advantages and disadvan

the distinct feeling that a

phony No. 1. Meyert.
George Steiner presented an
orchestra program last evening
of considerable local interest, as
the two modem works were by
Washington composers, and the
two soloists were 16-year-old
boys from local high schools.
The orchestra, of course, was
that of American University.
Jack Bryce, a student of Mr.
Pasmanick of the National
Symphony, did a very credit
able Job of playing the Mozart
bassoon concerto, being espe
cially effective in the rapid
passage work in the first move-
Curbs Urged Extended
To Civilians Overseas
(AP). The eommander-in
chief of the Veterans of Foreign
Wars tonight urged the Gov
ernment to put the same
restrictions on United States
civilian employes abroad and
overseas tourists as it has on
VFW Commander Ted C.
Connell said failure to do this
could “make second class citi
zens of our servicemen abroad.”
The Government has ordered
a cut in the number of serv
icemens' families overseas and
curtailed post exchanges and
other privileges.
Mr. Connell, of Kileen, Tex.,
called for the action in a
speech prepared tor delivery at
the VFW southern conference
He said his veterans group
was not passing ‘‘technical
judgment” on the seriousness
of the outflow of gold supply.
• However,” he said, "if the
gold situation is so serious that
it required the reduction in
the number of dependents of
military personnel overseas...
It is only fair and equitable
that other agencies of the
United States Government
such as State Department em
ployes, Commerce Department,
etc.—bear an equal portion of
the same type of restrictions
Mr. Connell said "equivalent
burdens and restrictions"
should also be placed on United
States tourists and other per
sonnel abroad.
Mr. Connell said the entire
VFW legislative program would
be based on the program out
lined by delegates to the VFW's
national convention in Detroit.
Under veterans' affairs, Mr.
Connell said he will urge Con-

ment and in the lyrical slow
movement. His cadenzas were a
Mt pedestrian, but with expe
rience, he should gain in bril
liance of execution.
Stephen Keeskemothy, who
studies with Mr. Steiner, played
the first movement of the
Mendelssohn violin concerto
rather well. He was bothered,
from time to time in intonation,
but, by and large, it was excel
lent student playing.
The “Dirge” of Mary Howe
called forth the best sound and
the best ensemble playing of
the orchestra for the evening.
The piece itself is moving, and
rich with the darker colors of
the orchestra.
Emerson Meyers’ first sym
phony, which concluded the
program, was a bit too much
for the lts effective
ness, so far as I could Judge,
depends on the very precise
interweaving of short, episodic
motifs, tossed from section to
section of the orchestra. The
writing was difficult enough to
play and to hear that much of
the intended effect was lost.
Chalk this one up to the valiant
effort department.
I am not quite sure how
much of a service is done to
contemporary music if the per
formance is not completely ac
curate. The listener, without a
score, is forced to estimate how
much of the effect is intended,
and how much is accidental.
This is easy enough to do with
simple music, or music that is
completely traditional: but how
to discriminate between In
tentional experimentation in
sonority uid accidental grief in
performance sometimes escapes

1.000-kilometer course with
payloads of 2,000 kilograms
(about 4,400 pounds), 1,000
kilograms and no payload.

payloads and no payloads.
