VOL. IV.-No. 57. U
Listened to a Very Fine Concert by
tie Marteau Concert Com-
It was an evening of music, of
high class music which to the lovers
of the classical, of the artistic, was
very enjoyable. It was an enter-
tainment which no ordinary city can
support. It was received by an ap-
preciative audience, and the largest
that has gathered in the hall in the
S. L. A. course.
That the people and students of
Ann Arbor are fully awake to an
appreciation of a high class artist
was fully demonstrated by the
rounds and rounds of applause that
greeted the operator last evening.
The printed program consisted of
seven numbers, but the one given
just doubled this. Every time but
once Marteau was recalled, and at
his second appearance he was com-
pelled to give a third selection be-
fore his auditors would let him go.
The artist repeatedly acknowledged
with infinite grace the ovations of
his admirers, but every bow and
recognition served only to increase
the applause.
The program was opened by a
piano solo from Liszt, by Mr. Sho-
nert, which showed a master hand,
but was received with moderate in-
terest. Few performers are better
known in America than Mr. Sho-
nert, but his reputation depends
chiefly on earlier performances when
there were in this country fewer
performers of his ability.
Madam Linde's work was per-
haps more substantial than striking.
She certainly has a wonderful com-
pass and perfect enunciation.
Marteau is admirably supported,
but this support is eclipsed by the
light of so superior a leader.
Marteau has a winning presence
which immediately captivates his
audience. The climax of the even-
ing was reached in Marteau's encore
in his second appearance-a select-
ion from Wieniawski, at once most
difficult and pleasing. His magical
rapidity, delicate touches and in-
imitable changes completely fasci-
nated his hearers. Marteau's in-
terpretation of Bruch and Wien-
iawski is certainly equalled only by
the authors themselves. It is not in
any one phase that Marteau excels,
but he is complete and perfect in
his line.



Remanye and Marteau are alike
in almost no particulars. The
former is a wonderful musical
trikster, while the latter is a finish-
ed artist. Too much cannot be
said in praise of Marteau's work,
and if he were to come again the
audience would be even larger than
last evening.
The company will go from here to
Montreal and thence to Detroit,
after which they will repeat the
concert at Grand Rapids where they
performed prior to coming to Ann
The next number in the course is
a lecture by Prof. VonHolst, on

Choral Union Needs Money.
The Choral Union needs money
and needs it bad. According to
Prof. de Pont, president of the As-
sociation, concerts have been con-
tracted for, at a cost of five thous-
and dollars, and so far but half that
amount has been realized through
the sale of tickets. Something is
wrong. The students can offer no
excuse for their lack of patronage.
It is true "times are hard,' but
surely this should not be allowed to
imperil the life of so valuable an or-
<eation as the Choral Union,
which has an enviable name through-
out the country, and means of at-
tracting many students interested in
music. At a recent meeting held to
consider ways and means out of the
present difficulty, a committee of
sixteen were appointed to canvass
among the members of the Union
and take steps toward getting out of
the slough. As a result, each mem-
ber has been given three tickets to
sell and these members have gone
to work with a vim which leaves no
doubt of the result. Prof. de Pont
is very hopeful and we believe his
trust in the support of the students
will not be, this time, entirely mis-
placed. The Choral Union has so
much merit that it is bound to suc-
The proposed football match be-
tween the Princeton college and
Washington Athletic club teams,
which was to be played in Union
park today, is off. It is stated that
the faculty of Princeton object to
college boys entering into any more
games this season.

Real Football at Michigan.
Apropos of the discussion in the
east in regard to altering football as
it is now played, President Angell
has the following to say:
"The faculty as a body has not
yet considered itand while we think
some modifications should be made,
it is not probable that we will take
any formal action this year. The
game has not been developed to the
same extent in the west as it has in
the east. The fact that a great
many students have been injured is
not the only thing against the game
in the east, but there is a strong
feeling against the gambling and in-
temperance that is indulged in at
the big games. Here in the west
it is different, although even here,
there is a feeling on the part of par-
ents and others that the game should
be modified.'
