Others ware completer "invertebrate". Motart lived la aa age of elegance and shapely form, Mr. Salter said. It was an age of conformity. It was surprising. therefore la aa era when Individual expression w at frowned upon, that Mr. Motart coma nave len so mucn or: himself in his more profound works. I But the test-piece was aot one of these. It waa one of conformity and the whole movement should hava considered as aa entity. Rarely la tha performances ha had heard, said Mr. Salter .had there been that necessary pulse, a flow from first to last. In several instances, contestants had played passagee to loud at to ahakt the passage right out or na framework. . But for Helene Oaulin, of Ottawa, Mr. Salter had a special ' word of praise la awarding her top marks of 44. Hera waa "extremely nice play tag", and she had 'exhibited most of the qualities of good Moaari, Her playing waa neat, well phrased, and showed clarity of detail Bartiara Rosemary Bell, alto of Ottawa, took second highest potato with 43.
