of Sainf-Saens' Pianoforte Concert

Symphony Orchestra created a very
unusual sensation. Air. Monteux and
the orchestra joined enthusiastically
in the violent and prolonged ap
plause. She was recalled no less than
six times at the end.
"There were murmurs of surprise
in the audience when she first came
on the stage. She is actually 16 but
looks considerably younger. The solo
passage at the beginning of the first
movement, however, showed at once
that she was not the 'lnfant prodigy'

but a player of mature strength, I

Litvinoff, on behalf of Soviet Rus
sia, which have been going on at
Coyenhagen with a view to bringing
about repatriation of prisoners,
have not been definitely broken off,
according to official announcement.
The negotiations, the announce

! to permit the two representatives to
returh to their respective countries
and confer with their governments.

Second Baptist Church, will address
the mass meeting of the colored
men's branch, Y. M. C. A., Sunday

work of a talented girl.
"She has the crisp phrasing, the
|, firm yet delicate touch and the beau

11 ideal performance. Best of all she
does not sentimentalize, and yet is
~ never academic. As a pupil of Cor

L i course, been admirably trained. But

! it possible for a mere chilli to play
. i as she does.
I "She is to be ranked with the
youthful Hofmann and with Heifetz
as an example of a young player

t! one who was lucky enough to hear
her yesterday."
Mile. Brard is to be heard in this
