Gladys has just returned from Leipsic and is giving an exhibition of what she has to show for the mortgage that Dad put on the farm to send her abroad. She laughs at Beethoven, calls Haydn "old-fashioned" and Chopin "effeminate." Liszt is "superficial brilliance" and Mozart "child's play." The only pieces she knows are things which appealed to a coterie of super-educated specialists abroad. She has come back with a determination to secure engagements and incidentally a few pupils, by means of a repertoire composed of artistically arranged discords. Something is going to happen to Gladys.
