IL CULTURE IS SEEN ON UP TREND (United I'reii Leaned Wire) STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Jan. 18.— Confusion caused by the present crisis, which hau hit tho International centers of music very hard, may prepare the soil for a new musical culture, although we cannot at present HOC clearly the' future development. This Is the opinion of Professor Olallo Morales, secretary of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music. In a recent speech he deplored the unemployment among the musicians abroad, and the general lowering of the musical standard caused by tho world depression which, however, so far hus not affected -the musical life of Sweden seriously. The professor stated that he had observed a tendency In modern music toward greater simplicity and harmony and toward the classical and preclasstcal forms. The young composers seem to regard the former musical revolutionists ^ with • respectful awe. The young ones, ho said, now have the task of building up now musical works of art, linking .the spirit of the present age with the music, of the past. To counteract tho . unemployment among musicians Professor Morales offered an Interesting suggestion. Ho urged the organization of ambulating orchestras as a kind of unemployment 'relief work. These orchestras should bo sent to play in. communities In such parts of the country where there Is a lack of good orchestral music, REMONETIZE SILVER WASHINGTON, Jan. 18. (A.
