5 Somrdoy, October H, 1944 gafatrgfirlb CaUtornian By MAK "Machines do not make a civilization. Civilization must have a soul. We are now further away from Christianity tliRn when it first became a human concept." This was Kzio Pinza speaking yesterday at Hotel El Te.ion nursing a cold, before the local concert. He disavows completely being a philosopher preferring to let professional philosopher* take over the enunciations of thought. He is not. however, without ideas on the subject. He believes that a philosophy is not a philosophy unless ii is a living philosophy, activated IPY actual day-to-day living. "I may be inclined to trciodness. but it' I am lint gddd. then that is not truly my philnsnphv. I'hi- losnphy is made up of cnmlinn, cjr- I'um.siaiices, facts nf mi? life. It is not an abstraction. He thinks that the philosophy of the times generally, ibat is practiced by' most persons, is a materialistic and pragmatic one. He thinks that an unhealthy person physically is apt to generate an unhealthy philosophy. To illustrate what he meant, he told S.UNPERS of lepers isolated on a certain island that leap to bite visitors in order to infect them with the same disease. He believes that social disorders emanate from the same feeling, a hate for the normal and healthy, coming from the abnormal and unhealthy. Mr. Plnza does not see a great flowering of American opera conceived from American novel and drama "because these deal too specifically with American family and American life, while great opera is concerned more "with th" unreal and fantastic." The dying of the great hero ideal in American literature may have hampered the development nl' opera In this country, and he concedes that with the war and war heroes returning to American life that the hero Ideal may again become a part of American life. AVestern literature with the hero Ideal is probably closer to tho heroic ideal necessary for opera, lie pointed out that most American operas created thus far have used other than American wettings such as Peter Ibbetson. the King's Henchman, nnd others. EXPAND LOCAL VET AID PROGRAM SPECIAL TRAINING SET FOR LOCAL WORKERS Expansion and improvement of the I'nited Slates Kiiipln.\ inenl Service's program Tor disabled war vcl- frans and other physically handicapped persons in this locality, was announced today by (Jeorge I.

This function is by no means new to the employment service, but with the number of discharged disabled veterans steadily increasing and with the volume of Industrial accidents mounting as a result of more persons in the labor force, this phase of the I'nited States Employment Service program will be emphasized and broadened, the employment service manager said. John J. MacGillvray. state veterans employment representative; Reel, war manpower commission state training officer, and Edythe Kennedy of the WMC veterans' service division, wore in the local office on Wednesday and Tlmrs- (Inv to present the training to the entire t'SES office staff and will return here on future occasions to give additional instruction to veterans' employment representative's.
