SAN FRANCISCO. March 10— illfi)—The bourd of regents of the University of California today announced appointment of Dr. Earle R.

The regents confirmed the appointment recommended by Dr. Robert G Sproul. president of the university, the faculty of U. C. L. A. and a special commlttec of regents. Hedrick Is chairman of the department of mathematics In the Los Angeles division of the state uni-ersity. He came there in 1924 from University ot Missouri where “Many modernists in the field of composition no longer j he had been a teacher for 21 yttm make beauty their first objective.

Although structurally there has ! been radical changes, the conceptions which they expressed are 1 much like those of many composers 1 today. “Most of the present-day composers look to Bach as one of the most outstanding In the field. Bach, I like themselves, emphasized struc- vltality. Thus I found it is not entirely true that modem music is the expression of a nervous and fast age.” The developments leading up to the present radical differences were traced from many decades ago Bach was one of the first to recognize the beauty In a free use of tones It was during his time that the discovery of relations of each tone to every other one was made, stated Miss Aldlerman.
