Begins With An Excellent Concert-
This Afternoon's Program- A
Noted Tenor to Sing the
Part of Gerontius
Never has a May Festival opened
tinder more auspicious conditions than
those attending last night's concert.
The weather mild, the audience enthu-
siastic, and the artists eager to do
their best; these were the causes for
the success of the concert.
The orchestra's wok was excel-
lent. Incessant applaste greeted the
conclusion of the Tscliaikowski num-
ber; but no encore was forthcom-
ing. This, however, did not hin-
der the audience from displaying
their appreciation of the Pon-
cheili and Schubert numbers. The ex-
cellent manner in which the orchestra
executed these creates high expecta-
tions for this afternoon's concert
when the Beethovan Symphony will
There were no bounds to the en-
thusiasm of the audience whe Anito
Rea appeared. Last year she delight-
ed the audience by her rendition of
Liszt's Lorelei; but her interpretation
of the Othello selections though they
differ greatly from the above work
caused her admirers to marvel at her
excellent appreciation of the sad "Wil-
low, Willow, Willow." The audience
could hardly reconcile itself to her re-
peated refusa to give an encore.
Signor Gogorsa acquiesped gracious-
ly to the desires of the audience, and
sang as an encore a stirring selection
from Faust. The quality of this bari-
tone's voice, especially its powerful-
ness, was well displayed in the Mas-
senet number. His reappearance to-
night when he will sing an important
role is looked gorward to with the
The final number on last night's
program was Bruck's "Fair Ellen." It
was a most fitting conclusion to the
concert. The chorus proved to be in
the best possible condition; its work
last night 'assures unbounded success
for the "Dream of Gerntius. It is im-
possible to praise too highly Prof.
Stanley to whose skill as a conductor
of the chorus the Festival owes most
for the success they attain.
One of the greatest compositions
ever presented at a May Festival will
be given tonight. The change made
in' the soloists must meet the approval
of everyone. The part of Gerontius
will be sung by Van Moose, who has
studied under the direction of Edward
Elgar, the composer of the work, and
Is therefore most capable of inter-
preting the title role. The manage-
ment have been very lucky'in securing
this great tenor at so late a date.

Yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clok in
Tappan Hall Lecture Room, Wilbur S.
Tupper delivered a lecture on "Life
Insurance," Mr: Tuper said that life
insurance was the largest business or
profession in the world, but that. it
was not overcrowded. He said that at
man must be adapted to writing insur-
ance, and that there would be no suc-
cess without ambition and energy.
Mr. Tupper said that there were ma-
ny advantages to the profession, chief
among which were that it enables a
man to take the financial poition he
is entitled to and that he is not ter-
ritorially limited. He advised young
men to go into young and growing
