Varsity The University of Alberta is to be given a new six-storey build Ing to house its departments cf physics, chemistry, and mathe matics, according to Dr. H. Gray-son-Smith, head of the physics department at U. of A. Dr. Grayson-Smith visited Saskatoon this week, at the invitation of the students Physics Club at the University of Saskatche wan, to address a meeting of members and interested persons. He discussed research projects currently being carried on in his department, particularly stressing projects in geophysics W'hich would increase knowledge of oil bearing strata. In a province so rich in petroleums as Alberta, he said, it was inevitable that such woik should be carried on at the University most concerned. This work would not be classified as applied science, but rather as pure science. MEETING CANCELLED Meeting of the Fraternal Protective Association, scheduled for this evening, has been cancel led.

Should a modern artist paint only in one of the modem styles, or should be allow himself "tp do essentially the same thing" as was done in some previous age by the artists of schools now definitely dated? On the same count, should a composer of music pattern his musical style on some past style, say that of the "classical period or the romantic era? Or should he first obligate himself to catch up with the most modem taste, so that he can "add new growth at the tips cf the branches of the tree of music, instead of enlarging the main trunk? Its a nice question, and one which I propose to discuss, rather than to answer. Obviously, a great deal is involved, and a basic philosophy of art and its function must be available before any answer can be arrived at. Argument by analogy is always permissible so long as it is done tentatively. Lets ask ourselves the same question about literature. Is it legitimate to imitate the style of a "golden era cf the pa3t and so try to write further poetry of the type that could have been produced, say, by Wordsworth or Tennyson, or Wait Whitman, cr further drama that could have been written by Euripides, Shakespeare, or Eugene ONeill? To ask this question is to answer it. Ir. literary matters, clearly, it is not only unwise to imitate too closely the masters of the past, but also impossible. I defy anyone to write a novel or serious drama without somehow, somewhere, making evident his knowledge of the evolution of thought since the era of the chosen old master. On the basis of analogy, then, it would seem that no one should write music, build a house, paint a picture, or model a statue, in a style so reminiscent of any past era that It could be taken as a product of that era. Just a few days ago I brought up this point to a friend of mine, highly cultivated man, thoroughly aware of the past, as well as of the present and its trends. The analogy does not hold, he said. Literature is by so much the richest of all arts that different rules must apply to it. Literature is much more than a matter of Fashions, which, like fashions in dress, can change continuously and then change back to what they were before; literature is also a matter of ideas, and ideas keep on evolving. So far, there has been no lack of new ideas, add presumably the supply of new Ideas can keep up forever. That is, in the matter of form, literature too might return upon itself, but, in so far as it concerns ideas, it comes in a category unique to itself. The inference, of course, is that a modern artist, if and when he decides that there is no new major vein of ore for him to exploit, is unblamable if he decides to pick out some partly worked mine, and dig further m to it When it comes to details, of course, there is no doubt that new pictures, new songs, new symphonies, can be constructed to in.imty. When I brought up this thought to Prof. Murray Adaskm, of the music department of the University, be stated that, in music there was no sign of any exhaustion of the possibilities in musical styles, and mentioned a new cne, called by the French concrete, which was made by sound-engineers in collaboration with musicians. Prof. Gordon Snelgrove, too, remarked that in art there war no evidence of having reached the end of the read, and that new styles were all the time coming forward. What do my readers think?

Voting Date On Hospital District Set PRINCE ALBERT. - E. A. Rawlinson, chairman of the Victoria Union Hospital Board, said today a vote will be taken in the hospital district February 19 to ask approval of the formation of a union hospital district and permission to issue debentures to cover the cost of providing 56 additional beds and other services. Mr. Rawlinson stated there was an urgent need for more accommodation, and an expression of approval from the district would permit the plans to go ahead immediately so that construction could begin in 1953. The long term plan, the board chairman said, had been approved by Department of Health officials at Regina and provided for a start on a completely new hospital on the present site. CONTINUED FROM PAGE THREE PARTY and that ho -would be calling a meeting by the end of the week to instruct the tabulators. At both the Conservative and the CCF offices, lists were being checked and prospective enumerators were being telephoned. Enumerators work in pairs, one from each party, and in this election there will be 152 polls in Saskatoon, 10 more than last time. Weve done a lot of preliminary calling, one worker said, but after all, until we knew the exact date of the election it was hard to get definite promises."

Second Street United Gains Financially The Second Street United Church is gaining financial strength, it was reported at the annual congregational meeting recently.

Early Resident Died Sunday An old-time Saskatonian, Mrs. Flora Georgina Young of Suite 3, Ayers Apartments, died in hospi tal here Sunday. She was in her 79th year. .

A large, enthusiastic audience attended the second Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra concert of the season held Sunday afternoon at the University gymnasium. We were happy to see a large sprinkling of young people and, as a concession to this section of the audience at least, Murray Adas-kin, orchestra conductor, arranged the program to take a minimum of time to avoid any restlessness on their part. Actually, at the close, the applause suggested more music was required to satisfy the audience, so excellent was the concert. The soloist, Howard Leyton-Brown, was fully up to expectations. The Australian violinist is now resident in Regina, where he teaches at the Regina Conservatory of Music. It would seem that he prefers to play vii tuoso music. Sunday he chose the Paganini Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, the first time to be played in this city, at least with an orchestra. Mr. Leytorj-Brown, in his first appearance in Saskatoon, some years ago, played the Bach Sonata in G major. Both these works are so difficult that they are seldom attempted by violinists. His technical brilliance is such that on Sunday he re sponded to continuous applause following the Paganini bv playing the andante of the Bach Sonata as an encore rather than the customary choice of something familiar to the audience. His listen ers appreciation was enthusiastically shown. The Paganini concerto demands more than perfected tech nique, so that a player- must command a reserve fund of technical accomplishment. It calls for phenomenal technical feats and its broad melodies are impreg nated with a passionate ardor. Berlioz wrote This Melody is the great Italian melody, but alive with aft ardor generally more passionate than that which one finds in the most beautiful pages of the dramatic composers of his country. His harmony is clear, simple, and of an extraordinary sonority." We were disappointed that the soloist and orchestra played only the first movement, an arrangement often used by soloists. Nevertheless even here one recognized what a feat of endurance this meant for the soloist, some 20 minutes of exhaustive technical skill, with only two short intervals of rest. This first movement, Allegro Maestro, gives the soloist every opportunity to piay dazzling virtuoso and that is what we heard. We were given a maiestic quality in the theme. Then followed double stops, dizzy runs and leaps, re markable virtuoso obstacles, and lastly a fascinating pizzicato and harmonics. Mr. Leyton-Brown is a serious, musicianly player, with fine left-hand ability and more than a little of that attribute called temperament, yet he has no side. All in all, a very satisfying player. It was a source of wonder that he can accomplish such feat as the Paganini when much of his time is given to teaching. The soloist was given good support by the orchestra. The Paganini opening chords are much the same as those of O Canada. The orchestra at no time overwhelmed the soloist. Mr. Adas-kin exercised control and seemed to inspire them with his direc-l tion. This despite the obvious weakness of the strings, in volume at least. This was more obvious in the opening selection of the Fra Diavolo opera overture of Auber, which is better known than the opera. It is of a martial nature shown by the opening drum solo and the march which follows. Later the theme with its gay music of merry mischief was well captured by the orchestra, whose strength lay in its brass section. Here particularly the violins were thin, obviously needing additional strength. However Mr. Adaskin shaped the music by bis direction and colored the score carefully, yet generously. Closing the concert was the popular Strauss Voices of Spring Waltz. The audience really wanted more and we feel sure everyone, including .the youngsters present, would have appreciated a repeat of the Strauss. The St. James Girl Guide troop made a colorful and efficient corps of ushers. A. H.W. WELCOMES PAYMENT C. W. Gibbings, a vice-president of the Taskatchewan Wheat Tool, said Saturday the interim payment on wheat announced in Ottawa "will be a most welcome addition to farm cash income at the present time. COMINIED MOM rAGE THREE VLA feed-wheat and rye, 12 per cent increase; coarse grains, seven per cent decrease; oil seeds, three per cent increase; vegetables, 20 per cent increase; fruits, 145 per cent increase, dairy cattle, 50 per cent increase; beef cattle, 136 per cent increase; hofis, 130 per cent increase; sheep, 160 per cent increase; poultry, 25 per cent increase. Illustrating the need for additional supervised farm credit, gSBSBBBSB Mr. Rutherford said it had been estimated, after careful consider-j ation by VLA supervisors and officials, that war veterans settled on the land could increase their ( income by 58 per cent with reorganization and refinancing of their enterprises. The survey determined the net income of war veteran settlers, including an allowance for rent of home, was an averaee $3 291 last year. It was estimated that the net income should have been $4,368, to give the farm family an average standard of living. Reorganization or refinancing with the proposed additional credit would have raised the net income to an estimated average of $5,218, or an increase of $1,927, 58 per cent over the present average. j Trout, there is little doubt that I th.s summer we will once more 4 lore lar ! numbers of teacheis."

We have a daughter who is past thirty years and is still at home with us. She helps around the house but has no plans for the future. What is our responsibility? E. L. ANSWER: Evidently she has not learned that sometime we must all assume the role of an adult and accept responsibility. No doubt your Christian kindness and consideration has been ouistanding but ou have failed in discipline, at least in some areas. I think a very direct talk with her, in the presence of your pastor or someone she respects. Make it clear that you have fulfilled your part of the responsibility' in preparing her for life but that she must make a decision to step out on her own with the help of the Lord. Her problem is one of a lack of self confidence. If you can give her such confidence in her God-given talents and in the guidance and provision of God, you will help her win one of lifes great battles. The longer she tarries, the more difficult the break will be. An easy transition would be to secure employment away from home for a time and then be completely on her own. Perhaps she is too concerned about what you will do without her. Assure her that you can manage. lb. n Red or Blue Ribbon Ideal For Braising . . , lb.
