Dr, Schweitzer's speech was In German, Mrs. Farr said, and his Interpreter was Thornton wilder, American author. "We stood an hour In the morning to get tickets to heir him." she said, More than 3,000, people were in Aspen. Colo., that morning to hear Dr. Schweitzer. His first sptech, the previous d«y, was In French. M»ny Celebrities Attend "I never saw so many celebrities In all my life," commented tin Blytheville woman.

His speech was recorded. She noted that he seemed "like he was a little weak" and national magazines covering the event bore this observation out by reporting (hat the altitude of the Coloradan resort was hard on Dr. Schweitzer's heart. The festival was presented in a huge lent over the municipal am- pltheater, Mrs. Farr said, and the acousitcs there were "very, very good." 'It was a most wonderful experience to think one could heir one of the world's greatest men, if not the greatest," she testified.
