WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1<M9 BLYTJ1EVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE 'I'HIUTEEN Critics Approve Of Miss Truman Most, However, Like Her Personality More Than Her Singing NEW YORK, Doe. 21. M») — A packed Camera Hall audience gave Margaret Truman an enthusmlk ovtitlon night, and the music critics thought she was wonderful. But they didn't think her voice was quite as pleasing as she was. The President's daughter, making her New York debut In a program carried over the network of the American Broadcasting Company, *tfas accompanied by Frank Blocks £3vchestra. A soprano, MLKS Trmnan sang several Christmas songs, including "Silent Night" and "O Little Town of Bethlehem." Also on the pro pram: "America" and a Puccini aria. »o Mln Bamiino Caro." Several top Metropolitan Opera figures were in the audience, a loin; with numerous government dignitaries and United Millions officials including Mrs. Franklin D. Roose- vclt. President and Mrs. Truman weren't here for the half-hour concert The critics praised Miss Truman for her poise and personality, Bn( some didn't think much of her singing voice. Said Virgil Thomson of the New j York Herald Tribune: "Miss Trmnnii hersolf presents surely B greater personal than musical distinction." Commenting on licr good looks, he said few artists "have Miss Truman's physical advantages, and almost none other has her dignity." Robert Roleman. of the New York Daily Mirror, said Miss. Truman "hns poise and an ingratiating manner." Selections Xnl a Test "We only wish." lie added, "we could say that her voice was the equal of her personality. It. is a light and pleasant voice, which would have been .sot off to better advantage with a piano or small orchestral accompaniment.'' * Howard Taubman, of the New Jr/ork Times, said "it seemed a pity that she was not asked to Ring more." "What she .sang was hardly a searching test of her capacity." Judging from what she did sing, added Tanbinan. "one would say- she has been working hard." He added: "But this was not the kind of program on which one could form a final and definite opinion. II Miss Truman hns not been told so, she must suspect that she is being pampered as n singer. She probably would prefer to take her chances on the same basis as any other artist. The manner in which she has taken criticism in tier stride would indicate that. One would suggest that she ought to insist on a full program for her next New York date." Douglas Wntt, of the New York Daily News, snid Miss Truman suny, "with tremendous concentration on her task." Metropolitan Opera Tenor Laiir- itz Melchoir, on hand for the concert, said Miss Truman "has the poods," hut "you can't expect her (i be. A Melba right off."
