Sir Thomas, who has developed a tremendous following on this side of the Atlantic during the past few years, will direct only throe con certs in Texas this year. The Town Hall staff feels very fortunate in having him for this program and making available to the people of Central Texas this opportunity. Never a formal-type conductor, Sir Thomas has the eccentricity of the English immortals and delights in living up to his own legend. He has done what he pleased and said what he pleased, and, by unortho dox methods and speech, has ac complished more for the musical life of his country than any other man of his time. He also has endeared himself to Texas audi ences through his jokes between numbers and singing during num bers. A man of many talents, Sir Thomas has written his autobio graphy, “A Mingled Chime,” which is an entertaining prelude to seeing him and hearing his music-making from the podium. He has just arrived in New York, but will be in Houston in time to rehearse the Symphony Orches- ti-a there in the typical Beecham program. He will conduct the or chestra in Houston Feb. 14, the day before his appearance with the. Houston Symphony Orchestra at 8 p.m. here.

In 1953 he was Communications Officer at Lowry Air Force Base near Denver, Colorado. He was partially responsible for the com munications setup of the President’s “Summer White House,” and in this assignment he met members of the local Bell telephone company. “The telephone people I met,” says Forrest, “were always helpful. I con sidered them the experts. They gave a very good impression of the Bell System. So th ree months before I was discharged I wrote to Indiana Bell for an interview, and subsequently I was hired as a Student Engineer.” Today Forrest is in Indiana Bell’s Engineering Department, working with carrier facilities — the means by which a number of telephone calls can he sent simultaneously over one circuit. Forrest is given the basic circuit and equipment requirements for a job. “My boss farms it out to me,” Forrest says, “and 1 take it from scratch.” Forrest does the complete engineering job. He writes the specifications, including wir ing plans and the list of equipment for the job. Then the installers take over. “I really feel that I’m contributing to the telephone business,” Forrest says. “My wife does too. When we’re in the car we get a kick out of driving by a job that I engineered. Nothing can com pare with a career in a business that’s growing as fast as the Bell System. It’s the place to move ahead.” Forrest graduated in 1952 from Purdue University with an E.E. degree. His career is typical of those which exist in other Beil Tele phone Companies, and in Bell Telephone Laboratories, Western Electric and Sandia Corporation.
