afternoon at -1 o'clock Ity Isaac
Lucius Uuttin, head of the
School of Music and ])rofessor
of organ.
The first nunilHU* on the pro-
giam was a ’horale Prelude by
liach in which t;he deeply re
ligious nat«ir? of the ‘omposer
was exjnessed. The (|uiet dig
nity and sympathy with which
this was played indicated the
d(‘(*p a1fectim of Mr. Battin for
this nuisfer.
In the (’’ae.sjir b'ranck -oiu)jo-
sition, “(Jrande IMece Sym-
plioniiiius’- Mi-. Hattin showed
an intelligent gras]> of tlie work

(]uieting (HTect in the “Anchante
Sei-ioso*' t(» the b(?auty and
grandeur of the “Allegro non
'I’rap))o e mastoso,’' each mood
was e(|ually well defined.
Tlie poetic charm of “’laire
d(‘ Lum*” of Karg-Eliert, was
given with imagination and in-
sijrht as was the jiopular “JiOr-
go*' l»y Hamh'l. The biilliancy
and abandon with which the
“'I'occato'' by >Vider was
playei matle a fitting climax to
a progi-ajii so varied as to make
possible both an eU'ective and
(oijoyable recital.
On Thursday night, October

Women. At 0:15 after a brief
but interesting program by mem
