Milstein, Stradivarius, G. R. Musicians Combine Tonite

Now an American citizen, Mr. Milstein first began the study of the violin in his native city of Odessa with Stoliarsky and later he went to Petrograd to study with the famous Leopold Auer. He was nineteen when he made his first concert tour and later frequently appeared in joint recital with Vladimir Horowitz, one of the great pianists of his generation. Veteran Performer He has made 28 tours of the United States, where he appeared with the New York Philharmonic Symphony 49 times, and innumerable tours of Europe. His post-war European concerts in 1947 and each year since were received with great enthusiasm. He made repeated recital and orchestral appearances in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Brussels, Paris, London, Zurich and in Lucerne at the great summer festivals and in Scheveningen, Holland, where in 1947 he opened the first full-fledged orchestral season since the beginning of the war. He has toured Latin America three times and Mexico three times.

made great and permanent contributions to violin literature. He has recently written his own Cadenza f o r the Brahms Concerto. On his recent program Milstein has played his own "Paganiniana," variations on the well-known theme of Paganini's 24th Caprice. Plays a Stradivarius The instrument played by Milstein in all his concerts is one of the violins left to posterity by the famous violin maker,- Antonius Stradivarius. It was brought to this country several years ago and is known to connoiseurs as the "Ex-Goldmann" and dates back to 1716.

For the program Thursday evening, J a n u a r y 22, Mr. Milstein will play Dvorak's "Concerto in A Minor Op. 53 f o r Violin and Orchestra." Other works planned for the program by Jose Echaniz, the Grand Rapids Symphony conductor, are Schubert's "Rosamunde Overt u r e " and Beethoven's "Symphony No. 2 in D Major Op. 36." Reservations f o r the concert may be made by contacting Mrs. Everell As a composer, the violinist has S. Brower, 228 Morris Avenue.

expressed the desire to introduce some of the great sacred, choral literature written for mixed voices to the many people of the Reformed churches and Hope alumni who for some time have enjoyed the c o n c e r t s of o u r Men's and Women's Glee Clubs. But there were many obstacles in the way; so the idea simmered for several years. Then the Chapel Choir was invited to take part in the Michigan Intercollegiate Choral Festival held at Kalamazoo last spring. This performance followed by a stirring concert as part of the Tulip Time festival caused the idea to revive. When early last September, a letter arrived from the Protestant Council of Greater New York, inviting the choir to participate as the featured guest choir at the E a s t e r Sunrise S e r v i c e s in the Music Hall, the decision was finallyreached that possibilities of an Eastern tour should be explored. The enthusiastic response of a number of the larger churches to inquiries led to the final decision. Alumni to Hear Group Tentative plans are being made

The program will be divided into five distinct groups or sections consisting of three sections by the entire choir, one section by the men, and another by women. The program will include selections from the works of such noted composers as Bach, Handel, Christiansen, and James.

Actually, from six to twenty weeks are required for final approval. Although we accept applications and physically examine candidates in one day, a period of f o u r to six weeks is required for final approval from Washington, D.C., before the applicant can be enrolled.

North Central Succumbs A display of good, sound basketball marked the Hope-North Central game played on Saturday, January 3, which saw Hope extend its winning streak to five with a 89-79 victory over a sound team from Illinois. The game was close all the way as the lead changed hands several times. The contest was a battle of the "giants", as Bob Visser appeared to be back in top form and Bob Hendrickson faced his greatest test as both an offensive and defensive AT competitor. Hendrickson was POST S BARBER SHOP matched against Bill Warden, the 331 College Avenue 3 Chairs Cardinal center who has been averaging 30 points per game, and both players reached the twenty mark. Bench Invaluable The "Dutch" bench proved invaluable, s u p p l y i n g t h e scoring punch when needed. John Brannock, "Zeke" Piersma, John Adams, and Dwight Riemersma proved the maxim that a team is only as good as its bench.

Hy David Haas The sport of basketball offers much in the way of cooperation and also in way of individualism. It would be naive to think the f o r m e r the lone attraction to participation in the sport. Men play basketball f o r enjoyment, f o r cont r i b u t i n g glory to the institution represented, f o r co-operative experience, and f o r individual glory. None should be supreme. Games are won by team effort, t h a t is, combined abilities of all twelve men on the roster of Hope's varsity. It is t h e s t r e n g t h of the bench which determines whether a t e a m will be able to overcome the h a z a r d s of f a t i g u e and personal fouls, of i n j u r y and s t r e a k s of e r r a t i c playing. Hope has won eight games in succession, with the scores almost invariably reaching the ninety mark. These phenomenal records would have been impossible without the reliability of the men on the bench who are not held in "reserve" as many students and players might think, but are part of a machine whose parts demand rotation, each one performing an invaluable function. " N a t " Holman, the brilliant coach of the f a s t - b r e a k i n g C.C.N.Y. quintet, has commented many times to the press r e g a r d i n g a victory: "A game won by teamwork, with no player noticeably outstanding, is the greatest t r i b u t e t h a t can bo payed to a coach."
