1 They Have Made Hard Fight
Against Arbitrary Actions
of Managers.
(Special cable to The Tlmei-Dlspatch.)
U. rlln, January 4.?Th? lon? cam?
paign waged by German actora haa
resulted la the Introduction In the
l;.i<hstag of a bill designed to afford
? ..embers of the profession relief from
the present arbitrary decisions of thea
, trlcal managers.
If the legislation is enacted the
right of the manager to diacharge a
plaver after a months probation will
be denied. The MB aboliHbes all pro?
bationary or conditional contracts. No
i eliraraaIs msy be held sfter eveniag
performances, and rehearsals on Bun
days and holidays are sharply re
l strtcted. The producer, too. must aup.
ply all costumes that cannot be worn
in common life.

heads over the identity of this tnys

I selected for such signal distinction.
Disregarding the youth of tne com?
poser, the critics have pralaed the
work highly as showing complete mas -
f of the art of orchestration and
modern musb a| technique and tne ex?
perience of a composer of years' train?
ing. A certain lack of originality, to
he expe< ted In so young a musician un?
der the Irfluence of composers like
Strauss, was the chief criticism brought
against him, and thla he la expected
to outgrow.
