Neuber, asso- NEW YORK— (INS) —American music is the biggest, best, and most popular export product this nation boasts, in the opinion of Conductor Andre Kostelanetz. Hie maestro is now busy packing .Ais white tie and tails and his set of five French taxi horns, preparatory to exporting a wide variety of American music to England this •prlng. He is going over once again to conduct the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and both London and the English provinces will' ring to the music of George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, Aaron Copland, et al. The French taxi horns will be heard in the first London performance when Mr. Kostelanetz conducts Gershwin's "An American In Paris." A medley of Kern's "Show Boat" music will be included in that first concert, too. The maestro says they can hold their own with the other compositions on the pro' gram, Berlioz's "Roman Carnival Overture," Prokofieff's "Classical Symphony" and Ravel's "Mother Goose" and "La Valse." This great exponent of American music is certain that it is only a matter of time until Gershwin's "Porgy and Bess" and "Show Boat" Ilnd their way to the metropolitan opera repertory. " 'Porgy and Bess' is a great work," he said, over a cup of tea at the Plaza Hotel, "Everyone loves that music and you' surprised how widely it \& known in Europe. "The last time I conducted the Royal Philharmonic in England, I played the -whole score of 'Porgy and Bess' at a. Command ?crlorm- ance. At the conclusion. Queen Mother Elizabeth told me she was glad I had played the entire score and that she was especially fond of 'Summertime, and the Llvin' is Easy'". - If Mr. Kostelanetz were casting "Porgy and Bess" from the Met's roster of singers, he would select Leonard Warren to sing Porgy, and Dorothy Klrsten to sing Bess. Then he would choose as director Roufaen Mamoulian, who directed the work when it was first presented on Broadway. And how -would Mr. Kostelanetz cast "Show Boat"? - Well, Judy Garland is not a member of the Met. So he would cast Rise Stevens in the role of Julie, once made famous by Helen Morgan. Brian Sullivan would get the part of Gaylord Ravenel, the Mississippi river gambler, and the new baritone, George London, would be j cast as the Cap'n of the "Cotton Blossom." i But what about Magnolia, the heroine of "Show Boat"? What about her, I asked the maestro, who replied that his wife was well but rather unhappy about his coming flight to London. "She came home recently and demanded that I give up flying," Mr. Kostelanetz said, and broke into a wide grin. "She seemed quite agitated and finally said 'Look what happens to the Flying Enterprise!'" When the maestro told her the Flying Enterprise was a ship, she looked at him suspiciously and asked "If ett ess a sheep, why ess ett called Flying Enterprise?" "Logic was on Lily's side," said her husband, "So I gave up trying to explain." He has also given up trying to explain his own golf game, a sport of which he is enamoured.

Exasperated beyond endurance, Schnabel turned on Einstein arid cried in dispair "Albert, Albert, can't you ever learn to count one, two, three, one, two, three!" but the doctor preferred to keep the old one as long as he maintained his office.
