This visit is serious" I realized that the French default had aroused a lot As Mr. Olin Downes remarked to the radio audience of the Orchestra during the intermission in yesterday's matinee concert at the Metropolitan Opera House, it would have been impossible to foresee from the character of Strauss' early serenade for wind instruments the direction in which the genius of this composer was later to develop. This music in which a reluctant classicism and a timid lomanticism are so tentatively mated scarcely foreshadows "Schlagobers" (for example). Still, looking back from the later to the earlier work, as their juxtaposition on Mr. Waller's program yesterday invited us to do, a connection may be seen between them.

They are there, however, and if you heard the serenade yesterday you may have noticed them. The intrinsic musical worth of the serenade is very slight, barely sufficient to have justified its revival, but it is Interesting as an illustration of the fact that at 17 Strauss was already manifesting one of the mature artist's most treasurable traits of style: that utter simplicity of melodic and harmonic expression into which he lapses with such poignant effect in certain passages in almost every one of the tone poems and ARTHUR did Berle beamed and said, "Aha, you caught on" he did a somewhat sissifled routine with Givot which wound up with Berle saving, "Well, I go out with girls" and Givot sniffing, You de generate!"

A moment later Berle leaped to his feet and added, "I hope this won't keep you away from the Parainount, where I am playing" and Givot answered, They didn't intend to go there anyway.

This incident is suggestive of an actual occurrence in New York's recent muddles. Thus "The Billion Dollar Scandal" throughout is alive and timely in its subject matter, but it is generally lacking in the straightforward strength and force-fulness of some of its predecessors. However, it is an entertaining production, distinguished by highly effective scenes of a Senatorial quiz. The author has peopled the story with a host of authentic character types. Partos is one, Carter J.
