There is no anti-Semitism in France today, according to Maitre Isidor Philipp, “grand old man of French music,” who arrived on the Ile de France yesterday for a two months’ visit in this country.
“Everybody is the same,” said this 70-year-old friend of Walter Damrosch, Ernest Schelling and Rudolph Ganz, who is an officer of the Legion of Honor and has been a professor of the Paris Conservatory of Music for the past thirty years. He was met at the pier by a delegation of former pupils and admirers.
Also aboard the Ile de France was Bernard Sinsheimer, violinist and professor at the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris. Laurence Stallings, author, journalist and playwright and editor for Fox Films, arrived on his way to Hollywood.
