The brother and sister tcnm jpcarcd recently In such movies '.'Holiday in Mexico" and "Three arlng Daughters." Jose Ilurbi has become one of c most controversial pianists on c American scene today. For any years he was known only as solo concert artist, and gained ,r himself 'a reputation as a anlst of considerable "iklll and tegrity. After some time he turn- 1 his musical Interests in. the Ircctlon of orchestral conducting nd look on the permanent con- uctorshlp of the Rochester, N. Y., hilharmonic Orchestra. Soon nftei hat he was called to Hollywood to ub piano music onto, the sound racks of movies. One such movie ·as "A Song to Remember" which became very popular, After that turbl's name became a nousc- old word in musical America, but Is appeal to the smaller group of rudlate concert-goers diminished onsldcrably. It Is no doubt true that the demands of public life have taken heir toll on his artistic efforts; lowevcr, none but a few profes- ional musicians would be able o distinguish between his playing f 15 years ago and his playing oday. Furthermore, it cannot be denied that' Iturbl and his sister mve been a powerful force in irlnging piano music to the aver- igc American, and if in so doing they have sacrificed somewhat in artistry, they have certainly made U|) for It in Increased interest in ;crlous music. IturbPs hand position (as well .is that of his sister's) has been the. subject , of great disctssion among pianists and teachers for a number .of years. Those who _wit- ncsscd the concert last night 1 saw the man crouch over the Keyboarc with a hand position that closely resembled .that of a knuckle-ball pitcher about ready to release hi: mo?t deceptive pitch. Such a position is distinctively different from that of other concert pianist! although It seems to suit his particular needs admirably. Very feu people havo ever been successfu In copying this style of piano play Ing, but who can deny that Iturb manages it w i t h consummate case? ·lay Work Of Maturity The program started off wit! wo compositions which provid cd some stiff listening for th average person.

As an encore, Amparo played, he solo arrangement of "Male- juenia," and Jose followed, .her with. Debussy's "Clair de Lune" from the Bergamasquc Suite.

Incidentally, the official laid, the study has shown that there are scores of types of blackbirds which invade the rle« fields, lor free meals. ' ~ Washington-OT-The -Fish · and Wildlife-Service is still trying to ind iiut'how to rid the rice-grow- ng area of Central Arkansas of hose pesky blackbirds. At the request of Representative Norrell (D-Ark) the. agency went to work on the problem several years ago. ^ice ' growers of the area had complained to Norrell t h a t . the }irds would descend on the rice fields and' cause damage running into many thousands of dollars. Officials of the agency report they are making progress but say they want to wind un their experiments before making any detailed report. This will take about another, year. They say they have tried numerous ways of killing or driving away the birds jp the past few years "and that many tnousands.of birds have been killed in the tests. "We've s h o t t h e m , we've bombed them, we've tried poisons and we have tried various repel- lants," one official explained. "Of the various experiments we have tried, I'm inclined to think the best bet is some type of repcllant." So it's along this line of work the coming year probably will be concentrated--some type of rc- pellant that will keep the birds Beautiful Colors. Aik F«c Dttollt.
