Perennial Symphonic Favorites Hit Entertainment Bill .
7 ' !
At Hill March 5
By Gene Smith
Spoken of as "one of the major
Amercan symphony orchestras," the
Washington, D. C. national symphony
orchestra will play here the night of
March 5 at 8:30 in Memorial hall, un
der the directorship of its brilliant con
ductor and founder, Hans Kindler.
In 1931 Washington was the only
one of the world's great capitals with
out a symphony of its own. In that
year, at the peak of the depressions,
the national symphony orchestra was
founded, although seven previous at
tempts to organize a symphony orches
tra in Washington had failed. To the
amazement of the guarantors, the or
chestra paid back 31 per cent of the
guarantees at the end of the first sea
son. This year the national symphony
orchestra began its eleventh season.
Prodigy of symphony orchestras, it has
become in the short space of ten years,
one of the half dozen major orchestras
in the country, one of the leading Victor
red seal recording organizations and
an orchestra with a successful New
York debut to its credit.
Moving spirit of this organization
is Hans Kindler. Key to his success,
aside from his ability as a conductor,
probably lies in his desire to make the

has become a student and townsmen favorite.

The Foreign Minister arrived Octo

brought with the news that Reichsmar-

"blacked out." He also predicted then
that, in spite of news reports of dis
aster, the Russians would "hold in
tact." Masaryk asserted that he was
opposed to "stupid acts" of sabotage
by Czech workers in German war
plants that would lead to wholesale
murder, but urged workers to "be
slow" and stated that big days of sabo

THESE TWO NEW ARMY AIRPLANES are typical of the types that
are in action in the Far Eastern war theatres today. In line with the na
tion's speeded production program, these and other planes are running
off the assembly lines at an ever increasing rate. The rate established by
President Roosevelt will be reached soon.
"Even if we discounted your prac
tice of' capital punishment," said Dr.
Carlos Martinez, secretary of the Fac
ulty of Law at San Marcos, "we would
still be ahead for we have a very modern
civil and criminal law program."
Inspired by the Swiss and Italian
legislation, Peru has based her court
system on the best points of those used
by the two countries.
In Peru the prisoners are allowed to
work while serving their sentence and
with the money earned must first re-'
pay the civil authorities for any dam
age, after which they may keep the
remainder for personal use after re
lease. In this way the prisoner is not
a drain upon society after' release as
he has enough money to last until the
Patronatos can find him a job.
"The Patronatos," explained Ro-
dolfo Ledgard, law student at San Mar
cos University, are "special committees
organized solely for the purpose of look
ing after the welfare of the freed men."
Members of these committees help the
men find employment. in the field in
