NEW YORK, Feb. 1—<«•)—Lau- ritr. Melchior feels jilted. Helen Traubcl's feelings are hurt. They both say the Metroiwlllan Ojieta has done them wrong. It seems that the Met has not i'Ct offered them contrncts for next ieason, and they think lhat the Met should have, done so—or at (east made preliminary overtures— oy now. Bly, jovial Melchior. the Mel's leading .Wnenerlan lenor for 21 ,'ears, is so miffed Unit he says us days at Die Met inny be over. "It's sentimental business," he iald^ "II is like to love n girl very much and have her Icnve you. It hurts." His pained remarks yesterday ;nme just ihrcc dnys after Traubel, top Wagnerlan sO|)rano for a decade, disclosed that she was upset by the Metropolitan's attitude. / She said she would "proceed with other plans" in view of the Met's failure to discuss a contract her. However, H was reported that Koilations for signing on Miss Traubel were going on between her manager and Met officials. There also were reported pliins for reengaging Kirsten Flagstad, the famed Norwegian soprano who returned to Naxl-hcld Norway in 1911. At that time. Miss Traubel stepped into Miss Flagstad's place as the Mel's leading Wagnerlan soprano. JUclchlor said that "unless Indicated plans change materially," he would sing his last Metropolitan role tomorrow night. "1 can only assume," he said, "lhat if I don't miss the swan boat In 'Lohengrin' Thursday night, it will be my grxtbye to Ihe Metropolitan Opera public." (In the opera, Mclchlor steps on the back of a moving model swan, and rides it off the stage. In one performance, he made a misstep and failed to get aboard.) He said Rudolph ning, the Met's new manager, had not approached him "for tlie customary preliminary discussion." and that Bing should have done Ihis before ills press conference today on the Met's plnns for the 1950-51 season. Hing has said contract lalks usually start in February or March. "I don't think the new manager has shown a great deal of consideration for an honest and faitll- iul \vorker," Melchior said. "I could understand if my work were not satisfactory, but as lonp as people cion't ask for Ihcir money back when I sins. I think I have a right to sing." lie said his plans now are for heavy concert tour next season. Even if he doesn't get to wind up his 25th anniversary with the Met. he had this consolation for himself: "I still have my friends, my audience and I will still be married to the same girl." Ho and Mrs. Melclilor will have been married 25 years In May. "That," he said, "will ho one silver anniversary that will be celebrated for sure. 1 ' Charges of Assault Against Youth Dropped FAYETTEVm,E, Ark., Feb. 1. <A !')— An assault charge against n 16-year-old youth In connection with the death of a University of of Arkansas librarian, was dismissed j'l'slerday.
