The above picture shows the cele

at the Italian front in August, 1917,
at the head of the military band he
had becen conducting the night be
fore on Monte Sauto, under a storm
of shot and shell from the Austrian
"The silver medal for valor was
pinned on the breast of this daring
individual, a civilian without a uni
form, by General Capcllo, comman
der of the Second army," eye
witness. The feat by which he won
this unusual honor was boht strange
and noble. One of our most' famous
musicians, the most celebrated or
chestral conductor in the world, was
at the; front, having been entrusted
with the arrangement ot concerts
for the soldiers.
"When he heard that Monte Santo
had been captured, he begged and
secured permission to ascend the
mountain. He climbed it towards
evening, while the enemy was show-,
ering it with a truly hellish bom
bardment. Strange to say, the gieat
master, among the rocks of the peak,
happened to come across a divisional
band there established, sheltering it
self as well as was possible, in ex
pectation of being ordered to a less
dangerous post.
"The appearance of the great mu
sician had the same effect on the
bandsmen that the appearance of a
great general would have made on
picked troops. They crowded en
thusiastically around hirn and the
master took professional command
of them, as though by instinct. Then,
under the bombardment of the plat
eau of Monte Santo there began, in
the moonlight, the most extraordi
nary concert in. the world. The
'Marcia Realc.' 'Garibaldi's Hymn,'
'Mamcli's Hymn' folowed in quick
succession, energetically conducted
by the great musician, to an accom
paniment of explosions, thunder and
the screaming and whistling of
Musicians Shelled.
"Cheers and hurrahs rose from the
valley below. The eiemy concen
trated their fire on the musicians,
who seemed to be challenging them,
and the concert continued. The mas
ter who, so to speak, had carried his
part into battle and won the medal
for valor, was Arturo Toscanini."

Clubman Is Sued
For Alienating
; Love of Husband
By Tnlvenm! Service.
New York, Feb. 12. Madame
Claudia Tartoue. who is suing her
artist husband, Pierre Tartoue, for
separation, today filed a sensational
bill of complaint in her $100,000
damage suit against Rene Van Len
nep, society man and clubman.
Mme. Tartoue alleges in her com
plaint that Van Lennep "exercised
a strange influence" over her hus
band and was, in short, very largely
responsible for her marital difficul
ties. The complaint further charges
that from January, 1920. until about
November 17 last, Van Lennep
"wrongfully and maliciously made
false accusations", to Pierre Tartoue
regarding the character of his wife.
'"" .Tartoue, upon his recent return
from the west coast, announced that
unless his wife dropped her suit
against him and Van Lennep he-
would file a, suit against her, the
nature of which he refused to dis
close. ' 1
