 D 21 Feb 1938. Slonimsky published the 3 poems in Music Since 1900
(Boston: Coleman Ross Co., 1937), p554-55. The volume was copy-
righted on 10 Nov 1937, and Slonimsky saw to it that HC got an early
copy. Already on 31 Jan 1938 HC was chortling to John Becker, "Have
you seen Slonimsky's book? I am setting the three 'Anti-Modernist
Poems' in it to music." On 21 Feb he wrote the singer Radiana Paz-
mor, "I completed and copied its 'Three Anti-Modemist Songs' . . .
 Iam enclosing them."
