LOUIS. A New Organization With Practical Features. wiuttex ron Tin: cniy p.nrciiuc Announcement was made In The Sundav Republic about a month ago of tho forma tion of a musicians' guild In this citv. the pnmo movera In the enterprise being Victor Ehllng and Alexander Hennerran. Thit their efforts have been crowned with suc cim Is now apparent, the membtrs-hlp of the guild row including thirtv-two of tho leading professional muslclars of the city. "The Idea of the guild," said Mr. Ilenne nian In an Interview last week. "Is to bilng tho musicians cf the cltj together and by meeting socially to promote good-ftllovv-Ehlp. Tho now- organization Is for profes sional musicians only, and there are re ptructions as regards membership. In the first 1 lace, a member must occupy a recog nized place in the musical profession to be admitted, and In tho second he must have tho standlne of a gentleman In the com munity. "For the rast ten jears I have thought that some such body should be formed, but tho time was not then rpe for It. In fact, four years ago It would have been difficult to form this society. The reason for this is rather hard to see. as tho lawyers, doctors aril other professions all hid their so nifies, while the musicians, had no practical society of the sort. 'Tre Idit of this soctetv was taken partly from the organizations In other professions and p.irtly from a similar body whk.Ii ex ists in Uermany. "We have adapted sever,! original Idea' houeier. wlich wo think will benIU the profes-don. and these will be put Into prac tice as soon as possible. At present the thln recognized as mot vital to the ruc css of the body Is to have all the work done for the society and not for the Indi vidual. "To this end we have striven to eliminate the Individual as much as iossible. There are ro otllcers of the society, the direction of affairs being In tho hands of the Execu tive Board of five, which is tlectcd vearly. Tho board for this jear consists of Victor Khling, C. C. VIch, Will'anj Pommcr, Max IJauman and mjself. All notices of meet ings, etc. aro sent out by this board and are simply sinned.
