BREMA WILL COME.
Will Sing the Star Part on Fridat
The management of the May Fes-.
tival most deeply regret the necessity
that compels them to advise the pub-
lic of the non-appearance of Madame
Sembrich, and yet take great satis-
faction in being able to announce the
appearance at the concert of Friday
evening, May 12, of Madame Marie
Brema, dramatic soprano, and Mr.
Evan Williams, tenor. Madame
Brema comes, to us fresh from a se-
ries of triumphs in the Metropolitan
Opera Company of New York, of
which organization she has been for
several years one of the leading mem-
bers. She has an international repu-
tation as a singer of leading soprano
roles in the opera of Richard Wag-
ner. Not only has she been one of
the leading members of the Metro-
politan Company for several years,
but has each year been engaged for
the London season, and has had the
distinction of being chosen for lead-
ing soprano parts in the recent Wag-
ner festivals at Bayreuth. Possessed
of a noble voice, a most dramatic
temperament and attractive personal-
ity, she is singularly fitted by nature
for the roles she has helped to make
Mr. Evan Williams, of New York,
is no stranger to Ann Arbor audi-
ences, having made a masterly per-
formance of the part of Samson inl
Saint Saens " Samson and Delilah'
in 1896. Since this time he has been
adding to his laurels, and has become
one of the best known of American
tenors, possessed as lae is of a voice
which for purity and sweetness has
but few equals anywhere. Each
year he has been growing in his art
and gaining in public favor. The
critics of New York and Boston have
rarely been so enthusiastic as over
Mr. Williams singing.
The illness of Madame Sembrich
is a cause of regret, but the engage-
ment of these two artists in her
place makes the program of Friday
stronger than ever.
Golf Club Started.
The Golf Club has started its sea.
so i, and some very good golf is be-
ing played on the links on South
State street. These have recently
been improved under the supervision
of a Detroit professional and are in
splendid shape. The club is governedl
by an executive board of three, com-
posed of Prof. Wenley, president;
C. C. Adams, secretary and treasurer
and J. M. M. Wetmore.
At a meeting of the club Monday
night it was decided to increase the
membership to fifty, the previous
limit having been 30, and any faculty
member or student who desires to
join is requested to send his applica-
tion to Secretary C. C. Adams, at the
Sigma 1hi House.
The dues for the year ending Jan.
1, 1900, are $3 with no initiation fee.
Sanford Holmquist, 1902, has been
called to his home in Saline, Kas., to
take charge of the business of his
father who has gone to Europe.
The annual 'Varsity track meet, to
be held at Regents Field, Friday at
4:10, promises to exceed all previous
meets il interest. The entries are
larger than ever before, and the con-
testants are closely matched in some
of the events. It is expected that a
number of 'Varsity records will he
broken. J. F. McLean has been
jumping 23 feet in the broad jump in
practice, with Russell and Runnels
close seconds at twenty-two feet
three inches. The western intercolle-
giate record in this event is 22 feet 7
inches, held by James Leroy, of the
class of '95. Some very hot compe-
tition is promised in the pole vault,
in which event Runnels and Adams
will go for the 'Varsity record. It
is also expected that the record in the
hammer and discus throw will be set
at a new mark. Avery and Caley, of
the football team, and Lehr, last
year's champion shot putter, will
fight out this event. The sprints will
be one of the most exciting features
of the meet. .Westphal ,Thompson,
Hartzburg, Gardner and Breitenbach
are evenly matched, and will be the
sprinting aggregation that will go
against Wisconsin on the 20th.
The track is being put into perfect
shape for the longer distances. An
opportunity will be given to see Teet.

Neo Senior Societq.
A senior society, Gamma Delta
Nu, has made its appearance in the
'99 literary class. Although the
society has been in existence the
most of the present year, it has but
lately announced itself publicly. The
society is made up of men who have
been prominent in college and class
work during their college course.
A Close Game Expected This After-
At Regents Field this afternoon
the 'Varsity will meet Illinois for
the second time this season. The
practice for the past few days has
shown great improvement both in
batting and fielding. Special attention
has been paid to batting left handed
pitchers and much better work at the
stick is expected today. The recent
defeat by Illinois will cause the team
to play as never before and if there
is a possibility of winning the game
will be Michigan's.
The game will begin at 4:10 sharp
and the two teams will probably be

The Athletic Board held its regular
meeting last evening. Routine busi-
ness of allowing bills was transacted.
Committees were present at the siceet-
ing from both the Homeopathic and
Pharmical Departments requesting
that they be allowed to enter depart-
ment teams in the class series. On
account of the small number of mem-
bers in each of these departments the
request was granted and both will
enter teams in the class series. It
was decided to have the admission to
the 'Varsity field day on Friday re-
duced to 25 cents. Tickets for this
meet can now be secured from mem-
bers of the Athletic Board. The
contract for the Jackson Park
grounds for the football game next
Thanksgiving day was ratified, Yell
