Sousa and His Band Delighted a
Large Audience.
Saturday night Sousa and his band
gave one of the most pleasing concerts
heard here in years, to the largest aud-
ience that has assembled in University
Hall this year. More than half an
hour before the concert was to com-
mence every seat in the hall was filled
and the crowd was pushing for stand-
ing room, and people were still press-
ing into the building.
When Sousa first appeared he was
greeted by a perfect storm of applause.
He responded to the encore with "The
Directory," which was so well received,
that the band was compelled to respond
again. The second number was a
trombone solo by Mr. Arthur Pryor.
Mr. Pryor's playing showed what re-
markably sweet tones can be produced
on the trombone. Mr. Pryor responded
to an encore with the "Banks of the
Wabash." No sooner had two or three
measures been played so that the aud-
ience recognized the tune, than they
broke forth in cheers and applause.
Miss Maude Reese Davis has a re-
markably sweet and clear soprano voice
and reached the highest notes with the
greatest ease. She responded to an en-
core with a taking little popular song
which was roundly applauded.
The rendering of "Sheridan's Ride,"
one of Sousa's descriptive compositions,
was excellent. The "Waiting for the
Bugle," "The Attack," "The Death of
Thoburn," "The Coming of Sheridan,"
and "The Apotheosis" were all vividly
portrayed. In "The Attack," there
were some splendid martial strains.

expressed himself as highly pleased
with his reception, and said the and-
ience was unusually responsive. He
was especially well pleased with the U.
of M. yell at the close.

Harvard University Club.
Ever since the beginning of the col-
lege year at Harvard, there has been
considerable agitation of the question
whether or not a University Club would
be of any real benefit to the three
thousand or more students at Cans-
bridge. The matter was brought to a
definite focus by a mass meeting held
last week in one of the largest audi-
toriums in the University. The room
was crowded to overfiowing and a great

Graduate Club Work.
A short business meeting of the
Graduate Club was held before Prof.
Wenley's address last Friday night, at
which was preesnted. the report of E.
R. Sunderland, who had been sent by
the society as its delegate to the Feder-
ation of Clubs meeting at the Univer-
sity of Chicago during the Christmas
Holidays. The port was interesting
and detailed, describing in full the dis-
tinctly social occasions of the Federa-
tion, as well as those devoted to busi-

The main address of the convention
was offered by Prof. Tufts, of the phil-
osophical department of Chicago, and
formerly professor in the University of
Michigan, upon the subject, "The Re-
lation of Philosophy to Graduate Stud-
ies." The address aroused so much en-
thusiasm that it was unanimously vot-
ed to incorporate it verbatim in the
graduate hand-book, of the coming
year. Other subjects discussed were
the question of migration in graduate
work, the requirements of the Ph. D.
degree and the contents and expenses
of the Graduate Hand-book. The ver-
dict of the federation upon the ques-
tion with the printing of theses offered
for the doctor's degree was expressed
