musicians that New Orleans has pro- duced, there is one that should not be omitted in a discussion of New Orleans music. Louis Moreau Got- tschalk of Creole descent was born here in 1829. Taken to France whenf he was only thirteen, he studied in Paris with Berlioz, and soon made his debut, achieving immediate suc- cess for both his virtuosity and his compositions. The immortal Freder- ick Chopin once predicted that Got- tschalk would become the king of Orleans the musical center of the Southern -States, disappeared into flame, smoke, and ashes.. It was destroyed by a fire just a few months after the death of Adelma Patti the singer who was so closely associated by Orleanians with the old French Opera House. At the beginning of the twentieth century, a new type of music was created in New Orleans by Negro levee workers. This style, which be- came popular about 1915, was origin- ally named jazz. However, it might have been called the "slang" of musical expression, for like slang it . .- N, is 'PST'-:-T..r' .

His compositions, like those of Chop- in, are similar to the "local-color" works of literature, for as their sub- jects he took songs expressive of his period-the Louisiana Negro and old Creole melodies, and French-Cajun folk songs. There are a great many others who deserve mention--Ernest Guiraud, the opera-writer Whose first work was presented when he was only sixteen 5 and Emile Johns, a salon-music composer who won con- siderable recognition for his "Album Louisianaisn-but for the Amoment, Gottschalk, the best-known, is suf- ficient. Ten years before Gottschalk's death in 1869, a building was erect- ed five blocks from Canal Street, at Toulouse and Bourbon Streets, that was destined soon to become the center of the social- life of New Or- leans, and the most fashionable opera house in the land. The French Opera House Association, erected in 1859, brought to New Orleans many fa- mous European artists, who usually remained here the entire season. Adeline Patti, who toured Europe successfully several times and who was the favorite of everyone, was just one of the many famous' sing- ers presented-Mme. Urban, Mile, Hitchcock, and Mlle. Calvee. Mlle. Patti's brilliant debut, when she was only seventeen, was made at the French Opera House--not at Lon- don, where she won international fame a year' later, as it is so wrongly stated. Among the many outstand- ingkworks given their American pre- miers here were: Bizet's "L'Arlesien- ne," Massenet's "Herodiade" and "Werther", and' Saint-Saens "Sam- son et Delilah". After sixty years that held war, peace, prosperity and poverty for the South, the French Opera House, which had made New li-C-H-O-E-S ' Q. ' is constantly changing-first jazz, then rag-time, the blues, boogie- woogie, and swing, as it isnow called. Popular American artists like George Gershwin, composer, and Paul White- man, conductor, have done much to better jazz and its derivatives. Per- haps some day it will be classed as ffolkj music typical of the restless spirit during the First world war andthe depression which followed it. In any event, jazz will leave its trace on American music. , As a final word in this discussion of New Orleans music, it can be said that New Orleans is rebuilding its reputation as a music center. For ten years, the -New Orleans Sym- phony has been giving winter concerts to music lovers, and during this pe- riod it has been constantly improv- ing, both in musicianship and size. The Opera House Association has been giving many delightful per- formances of grand opera with guest singers of Metropolitan rank. The location of the Summer Pop Con- certs, which were given in Elk Place just off Canal Street, has been chang- ed to an even larger and better place -Beauregard Square. All three of these musical organizations have unit- ed under the Community Music Fund, which at present has reached only sixty per cent of its goal of S150,000. This winter season, New Orleanians are looking forward to a brilliant series of operas and con- certs with many famous artists. No longer will one recall ,the "good old days", speaking of the French Opera House, with sadness. The conversa- tion will be of the coming perform- ances, instead of the past ones, or perhaps it will be of a new star from New Orleans-indeed, the conserva- tion might be of a new opera written by an Orleanian. one-half visiting musicians, and the singers well-typed to their respective roles. The cast included Mona Pau- lee of the Metropolitan in the title role, Edward Kane as "Don Jose", Donald Dickson as, "Escamillo", and Frances Yeend as "Micaela". The distinguished Leopold Sachse was stage director. "Carmen" herself was lovely and talented, and gracious- ly answered many well-deserved cur- tain calls. Supporting artists, the orchestra, ballet, costumes, and scenery-all deserve a special word of praise. 'As one of the world's great masterpieces, "Carmen" is as modern in spirit and as vital in music today as it was the day it was writ- ten, and its charm has not suffered in the English translation. Orchestra Notes i Kathryn Kirst '46 MCMAIN'S orchestra under the di- rection of Professor Carl L. Kirst gave a concert on May 15 for the public. Such numbers as the well-known "Voice of Spring" by Strauss and a special string arrange- ment of Dvorak's "Humoresque" were included in the selections for that night. "Le'Fileuse", a delightful harp solo by Hasselman, was artistic- ally rendered by Rosemary Stockton. Viotti's Violin Concerto performed by Master Carl Kirst was an added attraction. Catherine Scblueter, the featured vocalist, sang the very pop- ular "It Had To Be You" and "You Belong To My Heart". A chorus of two hundred voices directed by Miss Weiss gave Victor Herbert's "Thine Alone" and Rob' Roy,Peery's "Amer- ica, My Wondrous Land". Both pro- grams were thoroughly enjoyed by all. , i .

O awakening he sees Chris plowing nolselessly through the water with the last log. A flerce water battle follows, but Chris is victorious and the logs are saved Q " Cornelia Meigs' keen interest in United States history is manifested in this novel as in many of her other books. Although the main purpose of the author was to entertain the much interested reader, one also learns a great deal about the hard- ships of a steamboat captain and his crew. In the conclusion, Chris re- ceives his hard earned money and re- turns to his waiting grandfather in Minnesota. Vera Wright, 47. Among the numerous characters IS a tall heavily built man who had beerrreared among the Indians and who later struggled with the white men to force the Indians to search for new land on which to live. Angus McDermott the light blue-eyed man was hardly ever seen without h's musket which to him was his only means of protection while living' his rugged life.. When he fell in love with a young girl, his life did not al- together change, but he did become a little less adventurous. An inspiring scene is one in which McDermott searches for the girl for whom he had a deep affection.

In his search for Charity, the young girl of the family, he was successful: she was released to h-im from the Indian tribe on an agreement. ' Thomas Boyd, the author of this enjoyable book, probably wrote it to improve the knowledge of those who know little about early Americans and to recount the feelings regard- ing land settlements between the white men and the Indians during' those pioneer days of America. In- deed, the romantic lives of two main personalities prove to be most ideal- istic and satisfying to the reader. Shirley Roberts.

The soloists include- a group of Metropolitan Opera-singers: Licia Albanese, Lily Djanel, Raoul Jobin, Thomas Hayward, and Nicolo Mosco- no.

In the 1840's sev- eral famous opera companies were brought from Europe and gave at the orleans, si. Philip, and st. Charles Theatres, as they are now called, many performances of creditable opera. Records today show that many an opera received its New World premier at these theatres. Three of the best-known of these "first-performances" were Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoorf' and Ha- levy's "La Juive," which were pre- sented respectively in 1841 and to Lyle Saxon, New Orleans' favor- ite. This is indeed ia remarkable showing for the early eighteenth cen- tury. ' ' Many concerts were given at the St.- Charles Theatre from 1840- to 1855. Jenny Lind, the "Swedish Nighiiiigiilf-i," and Ole Bull, the violinist who was a friend of Edward Grieg, were among the most success- ful artists presented. Miss Lind's success is evident, for the tickets to her first concert were auctioned off, the first one selling for 5240! In' 1853 Maurice Strakosch, who was appearing with Mr. Bull, introduced Adelina Patti, his protegee, who was then but ten years old! But the best and most famous of these musical or-, ganizations had not yet been formed, for the French' Opera House wasfnot to come into .existence until 1859i-, Q4 Among the many' fine' recogniaeld .I . , .

High School has always willingly co-operated with requests of the Red c Cross or any other similar organiza- tion. Therefore it was not unusual that, upon the request of the New Orleans Chapter of the Red Cross, the students eagerly began work on a project' that would add color and charm to the beautiful new recrea- tion room at the Army Air Base on Lake Pontchartrain. A To the students, such a project is not easily undertaken, and only with careful planning and much study can the many obstacles be elminated Y and -the project prove successful. In this instance many problems had to be met and the students, with much enthusiasm, prepared to overcome them. The first of such problems was to find an interesting as well as colorful subject. When interviewed, Lieuten- ant Conboy suggested that the story , of New Orleans related on .eleven murals, would be ideal for such a room as the one to be decorated. an Certainly the emotions of the many 4, - boys from hundreds of different A """ i' ' cities could be stirred no more than A ,ta 0 by a pictorial review of "-America's H . a ' Y I Most Interesting City."
