MAY FESTIVAL CLOSES.
The High Standard of the Series
The fourth and fifth concerts of the
series brought the fourth annual May
Festival to a close Saturday. The Uni-
versity Musical Society heightened its
fame for musical ability by the series
and the Festival has been most sue-
The first concert for Saturday's pro-
gram was an orchestral matinee given
by the Boston Festival Orchestra, un-
der the direction of Herr Mollenhaner,
and soloists as follows: Miss Jennie
Mae Spencer, contralto; Mr. IH inrich
Meyn, baritone; and Mr. Hermsas
Mr. Meyn smlade much the bst ap-
learance That he has made during the
Festival and was particularly sw1 re-
ceived. Ie rendered the Valeutlsu
soung from "Faust" in an able manner
and was given a hearly encore. Miss
Spencer was also in excellent voice,
her rich contralto appearing to ece-
lent advantage in Gluck's aria, "Che
Faro." Mr. Herman Zeitz, however,
was the most enthusiastically received
His reudition of the second violin co-
certo from Wieniakski proved him
niaster of the greatest of all musical
The greatest part of the msatinee.-
however, was taken up by the arches-1
tra, which played with great precision
and finish and is de a distinct impres-
sion. The orehestra first played "The
Praeludium," choral and fugue, by
Unch Abert. Then the string orches-
tra alone rendered two movements
from Tschaikowski's serenade, opus
4S. The "Elegie" and "Russian
Theme" were both produced in a mas-
terfl manner. The orchestra's great-
est power, however, was shown in the
rendition of five parts from Mendel-
ssohn's "A Midsummer Night's
Dream," which was the closing numn-
ter. The entire production was well
produced, but in "Scherzo," the "Nor-
turne," and the "Wedding March," in
particular the playing was extremely
delicate and ihighly finished.
The grand finale of the series occur-
red at the fifth concert Saturday night,
when 'Max Bruch's "Arminius was
presented under the direction of Mr.
A. A. Stanley as conductor. Mrs.
Katherine Bloodgood took the part of
the Priestess, Mr. Barron Berthaldap-
peared as Siegmund. and Mr. Gardner
S. Lamson as Arminius. The soloists
were aided by a chorus of 300 tiained
voices from the University Chral
Union, and the great Freize Memorial
organ, played by Mr. L. L. Renwick.
This was the first presentation of the
ontorio in Michigan and its anounce-
stent created great interest among nu-
sical critics. The presentation more

'VARSITY DEFEATS '99.
Poor Playing Characterized the
In a practice game characterized by
slow and ragged playing the 'Varsity
team defeated '99 Saturday afternoon
by a score of 12 to 4. The 'Varsity at
times played briliant ball, but on the
whole the work was poor. Sawyer
and Hammond started in as the bat-
tery for '99 and made a good showing.
For the sake of practice Sheean and
Lunn, of the 'Varsity team, replaced
them in the fifth. Lunn's throwing to
second was swift and accurate and
shows that lie is fast getting into
form. While running to second in the
sixth Heard collided with Cooley and
sprained his wrist. Coach Watkins
then went in and played at second.
Every 'Varsity man but Siller got a
hit, Sullivan leading with three, one a
two-bagger. For the '99's Cooley got
two of the four tits made. In the
fifth Wolff made a fine stop of a hard
hit grounder over second that was
