MUSIC AND THE CENTENNIAL

The letter in reply to me by 0. A. Writers does not dispose me in the least to alter mv comment on his first letter. I have shown that he was grossly incorrect In what he said about responsibility for the music in the centennial year. " He does not adniit this, but passes it off by referring to one aspect of it— the importation of singers. He seems to play down his personal insinuations, but says that Dr. Sargent was requested to terminate his engagement, "and did so for the reasons set out in my letter." Does he still stand by these personal insinuations? If he means that there was an engagement with Dr. Sargent and that this was terminated by the National Broadcasting Service and the reason was that the N.B.S. was influenced by a certain person, then I can say that I have it on authority quite as good as his that this is not correct. FAIR PLAY.
