The great and greatly loved ,'iolinist was badly wounded in World War I, nearly killed by an auto in 1941, had a serious case of appendicitis in 1946, and has undergone two major operations since 1950. His hearing and sight have failed--but he's still the indomitable Kreisler. "My durability is a present from God," he said in an interview. His fingers ran nervously through his white hair, mussing it, and he went on.

A novel number was the "Serenade for Wind Instruments in E-flat" by Richard Strauss. Thirteen wine instruments were used with lovely effect. The blend ol the covered tone of these instruments gave a rich velvety quality. Especially fine wa? the playing of the horn quar- itet. The orchestra next gave a fine performance of Brahms "Variations on a Theme b\ Haydn." It is one thing to write a good theme, as Haydn did, but it is a greater thing to embellish that theme as Brahms did with eight variations and the finale, a them refurbished and adorned in a myriad different moods.
