As shown here, the altar will stand in the open between the benches for the members of the order, shown in the background, and the lay congregation. The model is included in a Walker Art center exhibition of Breuer's 100-year 19-building project for St. John's at Collegeville.

John's Abbey 700-Year Building Pro'ecf Exhibited tion of more than 2.000,000. Describing exhibition, Steichen has called it "a mirror of the essential oneness of mankind throughout the world Photographers all over the world have photographed the everyday story of man wherever he happens to live, whatever language he happens to speak, whatever clothes he happens to wear." The exhibit Is organized according to the great cycle of life from its beginnings through childhood, maturity, old age and death. Upon this framework is documented in photographs of uncompromising candor and impact the emotions, ideals, tensions, aspirations, struggles and beauty of human life in terms that summon the ot server from his sense of personal humanness to consciousness of his identity with universal humanity. The exhibition was seen by over 273,000 people in its inaugural showing at the Museum of Modern Art last January through March. The exhibition will be circulated to European and perhaps Asian audiences in special editions ordered by the department of state, and three versions to be prepared by the Museum of Modern Art for circulation in the United States will be seen by an estimated 2,000 communities in this country.

The Minneapolis exhibition is the original exhibition which was shown at the Museum of Modern Art. It was transported in its entirety by overland van, arriving in Minneapolis May 23. In the four intervening weeks it has been in the process of installation in 10 galleries of the institute's second floor south wing, main stairway and north wing corridor according to plans developed by Robert Bliss, Minneapolis architect, to preserve as- fully as possible the character and form of the original Max Rudolph installation at the Modern Museum in New York. The exhibition will be open through July 31. Due to the cost of its organization and installation, there will be a 25-cent admission charge.

Children under 12 will be charged 10 cents. Institute members, their families and one guest will be admitted free upon presentation of their membership card.

I Now we have the Toscanini recording of Schubert's SYMPHONY NO. 5 IN FLAT with the NBC Symphony or- a RCA-Victor LM-1869).

On the reverse is Mendelssohn's OCTET FOR STRINGS IN FLAT, Opus 20, orchestration of a cham- ber work which is sufficiently orchestral in original con- i cept to justify the inflation. The Mendelssohn, which has a polished sophistication as part of its beauty, lends itself more fully to the Toscanini manner than does the Schubert. The lighter passages of the Schubert Symphony No. 5 go with a crisp, delicate touch but there is too much nerve and muscle In the forte and fortissimo. Beautiful, all right, but not Viennese.

The Octet is taken from a 1947 broadcast but the quality is more than passable. Arthur Grumiaux, French violinist who has appeared with the Minneapolis Symphony, plavs Lalo's SYM-PHONIE ESPAGNOLE with the Orchestra des Concerts Lamoureux conducted by Jean Fournet (Epic LC-3082. There is considerable luxuriating in tone color and lus-ciousness of expression here and the tempo is more deliberate than most American conductors and soloists would choose. The same Is true of the Chausson POEME, though less so of the Ravel TZIGANE, on the reverse side. It all depends on how you want your music served and you may like it this way.

The selections are the Sonata in Minor, "Mephisto" Waltz, Concert Etude No. 3 in D-flat, and "La Campanella." Anda, with a fantastically fleet and accurate technique, presents some good arguments for the return to, current esteem of those musical Values in Liszt once obscured by the sheer flights of pian-ism that go with those values. Liszt's musical truths are often blurred by virtuosi who are not fully aware of them, but in this Anda is a saint and not a sinner. Here's playing that Is.

The exhibit was Installed especiaHy for the American Institute of Architects currently meeting in Minneapolis for their annual convention. The show will be open to the public today in the Gilbert and Susan Walker gallery on the main floor. Breuer's long-range plan for St. John's founded in 1857 and Minnesota's oldest Catholic institution of higher learning includes 19 new buildings with the monastic wing already under construction.

In the exhibit is a large-scale model of the abbey church, one of the most impressive units in the design. The unusual plan developed Irom the unique requirements of St. John's community primarily a monastic church but designed to accommodate also a lay congregation. The Benedictines at St. John's, famous as liturgical authorities, were confident enough to disregard some current church-planning practices and return to "the originally correct' church-planning practices.

Entry is through the baptistry, as a person enters the Catholic church itself through baptism. Once inside, the whole focus of the building is on the altar. Thus Breuer has translated the functionalist esthetic of the Bauhaus into the architectural language of the church. The exhibit will remain on view through July 17.

Portions of the design, considered one of the most significant works of religious architecture on Again wholly musicianly. The orchestral excerpts from Berlioz THE DAMNATION OF FAUST are familiar and fragmentary but the London Symphony orchestra, conducted by Anatole Fistoulari (London LL-1154) offers a selection of vocal excerpts that give a more comprehensive view of this not-quite-opera but e-thing more than a cantata. The soloists are Raoul Jobin, tenor, 'and Irma Kolassi, mezzo-soprano.

The story of Berlioz' adaptation of the Goethe story differs considerably from the Gounod version, and certainly neither has any musical echoes of the other. The record couples with the Berlioz excerpts from Massenet's WERTHER, by the same group of artists.

TWIN CITIES record store employes are getting accustomed to having members of the young set bounce in and ask: "Is Honey -Babe in yet?" The "Honey Babe" in demand is a recorded version of a swinging marching song used in a recent movie about the marines, called "Battle Cry." Dealers have a hard time keeping it in stock. Art Mooney (MGM records) has the most popular version of the song, which a lot of the young buyers may not realize is just an old tune called "Crawdad Hole" all done up in drass blues.

Since then it has caused a hefty tumult in jazz circles from Chicago to Paris. Lizzie is in her 60s now and a lot of the power has faded. But the feeling still is there.

Much of it is captured in a Cook record 12-inch LP album titled "Hot Songs My Mother Taught Me." which has 14 of the songs Lizzie has been singing all these years. By present-day standards of tone and phrasing, so often wrongly applied to any sinfer, Lizzie cannot sing a lick.
