T"Mfil«ir, June HO it A K , M OH, A i K A N t A I A Short Short Story MEMO TO A MAESfRO By LESTER ARNO Maestro: You asked me to find him and i write to you. .., I am with him now. v Before I bring you up to date, I'm going to wool-gather. After ill, I was partly responsible. V< Remember when we first heard him? He was five years old and 111 eyes and fingers. Eyes that " rnecl and fingers that tapered, [member the anxiety his moth- had as he sat down at the mo in your studio? You sent T out of the room and put a tlephone book under him. And then he played. How he flayed. Not the usual beginner's reper- 'toirc. Not kid stuff. He played advanced material and he played it well. Both of us were amazed. We didn't believe it possible for Jtp so small. Neither of us said a word. We just let him play. > 1*61 » r MA, And then it began-, the long hours of rehearsal, the special diet, the exercises and the beginning of the repertoire. It was at the end of the first year that he came to live with you. His mother came to visit ev- ! Saturday. The rest of the k it was exercise and exercise and exercise. He grew taller and his tcch- .nique grcsv stronger. You were merciless as you should have been. You drilled him and hounded him and got him ready for his first recital. He was 12. The critics were cautious as they should have been. He was only a boy. But tiff? skirted their caution and said that perhaps this one held the promise of a genius. And then you returned him to his studies. Twelve, 13, 14, 15 years old. That was when we took him to Europe. I went over in advance and you joined me in London. We had a fair success there, but Paris was a triumph. Do you remember the notices? Even from M e critics we didn't pay in acl- ;c? The rest of the continent was a continuing series of successes. Even the four concerts in East Germany. Critics were unanimous about him. No one belittled his genius. Everyone acclaimed it. They pulled out all the stops. Sixteen years old, 17, 18, and 19. Then he was twenty. On top of the world before he could vote. * d there wasn't a doubt that was still traveling upward. Then something happened. When did it happen? Upon our return to New York when Margaret came to his dressing room : «it CarnegicSHall? No, it really .^started the /light before the con- He sits at the piano and looks across the room at her. cert. He and Margaret had gone dancing. They had returned at one o'clock in the morning. You were furious. Rightfully so. You said some hitter things, but you were right. His career came first. He was one of the few. God had smiled upon his hands. His was a trust. A dedication. I He didn't say anything in reply. j He listened quietly and thoughtfully. Come to think of it, there was only one thing he could have said, and he kept it to himself. He was in love with Margaret, of course. And Margaret was in love with him. That's the only answer he could have given you. Then he went away. You asked me to find him and to write to you. As I'm doing now. I've found him. Not where you'd expect him to be. He's here. Margaret's with him. I don't think I'll talk to him. It will do no good. I'm afraid. They arc too happy. I can sec it as he sits at the piano and looks across, the room at her. Hails Ruling on Omnibus Bill LITTLE ROCK (AP)-The editor of the Arkansas Baptist magazine today hailed invalidation of Ihe 14.S million omnibus law and called for a stepped-up campaign against a companion $60 million bond issue. Dr. Erwin L. McDonald in an- editorial for the magazine's June 8 edition, said it is doubly important now to have a campaign "to inform the public of the penalties that would assuredly accure if the politicians and their greedy allies should be allowed to commit this and future generations of Arkanrans to payment of $90 million principal, interest and fees." Foes have charged that the total cost of the $60 million bond issue advocated by Faubus actually would be ?90 million, McDonald also called upon legislators in an expected summer special session "to use the surplus revenues first for the benefit of th* State Hospital and institutions of higher learnings." The name of this place is "The Impasse." It's on Rush Street and it draws a superior audience. The liquor is very good and be plays excellent boogie-woogie.
