Although, perhaps, not of the
“great intellectual achievement of
man” variety, we find the perky
satirical songs of Tom Lehrer rag-1
ing on the campus—hardly contra-:
puntal “tour de forces” which carry
anything to the heights of ingen
uity, as the Bach works may be
accused of doing . . .
Since description of such as “Be
Prepared”, “Fight Fiercely, Har
vard”, and “The Old Dope Peddler”
is impossible to arrive at—^we sug
gest that you consider the titles
for their worth and contact Jane
Brown, who has the record and
song book, for further investigation.
Incidentally—rather interesting tc
note: Tom Lehrer is a Phi Beta
Kappa, magna cum laude M. A.
from Harvard University; also a
research mathematician for in
dustry and national defense!
In conclusion, it seems almost
necessary to concern ourselves with
the path music may take in the
future. According to Aaron Cop
land, noted contemporary American
composer: “Isn’t it possible that
we shall wake up one day and find
the familiar groups of stringed in
struments—basses, woodwinds, and
battery—superseded by the inven
tion of an electronic master in
strument with unheard of micro
tonic divisions of a scale and with
totally new sound possibilities, all
under the direct control of the
composer without benefit of a per
forming interpreter? ... An age
that has broken through the sound
barrier can hardly be expected to
go on producing musical sounds in
the time-honored manner of its

WINSTON tastes good —like a cigarette should!
■ No wonder so many college men and women are getting to
gether on Winston! It’s the filter cigarette with real flavor —
full, rich, tobacco flavor! And Winston also brings you a flner
filter. It works so effectively, yet doesn’t “thin” the taste.
Winstons are easy-drawing, too — there’s no effort to puff!
