GREAT 1NTEREST IN UNIVERSITY. I-BEETHOVEN
to Were it not for the fact that the
te forms had been taken down, an extra
nt edition of the sorority number of the

M the press yesterday. Early Saturday
evening orders for more copies from

lk printed, he found that it was too late.

Pres. Hutchins returned yesterday
from New York where he attended an
enthusiastic banquet of the alumni of
that city. About 125 were present and
an intense interest was shown in
"All of the speakers manifested the
warmest enthusiasm and interest in
Michigan," said the president. "Every
one, I believe, spoke of the Union dur-
ing his speech. From the attitude they
showed, I should say that the project
for the new Union will receive a ready
response and hearty support from the
New York Alumni."
In his address at the banquet Pres-
ident Hutchins told of the recent ef-
forts to get more closely in touch with
the alumni body, by the periodical visz
its fromk members of the faculty, and
of the revival of the extension lec-
tures. He also spoke of the reorgani-
zation of the graduate school, and the
plans for revising the requirements
for graduation and entrance, n in
the hands of committees.
The other speakers at the banquet
were: Hon. Levi L. Barbour, of De-
troit, former regent; Chancellor Elmer
E. Brown, '89, of New York Universi-
ty; Representative Wedemeyer, of this
district; Dr. Copeland, formerly of
Ann Arbor, and Dr. Potter, of the New
York health commission. Bishop
Charles Burch, '75, pronounced the in-
In speaking of the University of
Michigan, Dr. Potter, who is a gradu-
ate of Cornell, said that Michigan had
always been a leader of educational in-
stitutions, and should live up to her
standard by introducing a now much
needed course in preventitive medi-
cine. It was just last year that such
a course was introduced in the medical
department, tending towards the de-
gree of Doctor of Public Health.
Saturday afternoon Dr. and Mrs.
Copeland gave a reception for the
president, to alumni and alumnae in
New York city, which was attended
by about 250 persons.

COMMITTEES APPOINTED BY
SOPHOMORE LIT PRESIDENT,
In accordance with the new consti-
tution, submitted by the student coun-
cil and accepted by the class, Presi-
dent Guy Woolfolk of the soph lits
has appointed the following commit-
tees: auditing, Cyril Quinn, "Bob"
Sturtevant, and "Howdy" Seward; ad-
visory, all class officers, chairmen of
the other committees, Beatrice Miri-
am and Owen Winters.
After such a concert as that given
by the Flonzaley Quartet last night in
University Hall, the only regret is that
chamber music must be suppressed
for another year. Never has any or-
ganization surpassed the performance
of the Flonzaley's last evening; their
ensemble was perfect; their readings
were subtle, pulsating with human
emotion. Every phrase was signifi-
cant, both in relation to its neighbors,
and in relation to the complete whole
of the composition.
To come from the general to the
specific, the Beethoven Quartet, Op 18,
No. 5, is the first to be considered,
since it opened the program. Classic
in outline, joyously beautiful in con-
tent, it served to assure the two thous-
and or more auditors of the unequalled
ability of the Flonzaley organization.
Perhaps the third movement, Andante
cantabile, was the most enjoyable, and
particularly the organ-like quality of
tone in the pianissimo statement of
the theme. The first variation was
charming because the theme in fugal
style entered in the cello, and was
then taken up in a joyful mood by the
other instruments. The naive and un-
expected close of the fourth move-
ment was wonderfully well done.
"Sonata a Tre" for two violins and
'cello, by W. Friedman Bach was the
second number. Following, as it did,
such a masterpiece as the Beethoven'
Quartet, it could not but suffer from
the comparison. The workmanship of
the composer was not as compelling.
nor were the melodies as interesting.
The reading which the three artists
gave it, however, brought forth all
the hidden poetry in the score, One
could not refrain from wishing that
a 'cello or violin solo had been sub-
stituted for this number..
As a remarkably good example ofa
what a quartet in the modern style is
the Dvorak quartet op. 105 was offer-;
ed. It is a wonderfully pleasing work
partly because of the richer harmoni_
material that the Bohemian composer
employed, and partly from the more
intense character of the themes. xs
in the Beethoven quartet, the summitl
was reached in the Lento e molto can-
tabile, Seldom is a better opportunity1
offered to hear such clear, telling, in-
dependent part writing. And in their;
interpretation of the long sustained
phrases, each instrument was from1
time to time brought to the foreground
to contribute its own peculiar color to
the scene. The effect gained was noth-
nig short of marvelous. The number
closed with a brilliant Allegro that
formed a fitting climax to such a prec-
edent setting concert.
LEIDY TAKES ASSISTANT
SECRETARYSHIP IN TOLEDO
TOLEDO, 0., Jan. 22.-Paul Leidy
who has been taking post-graduate;
work at the University of Michigan,
has left college and accepted the po-
sition of assistant secretary of the To-
ledo Commerce Club. His appoint-
ment was confirmed by the trustees
some days ago.
Mr. Leidy was graduated from the
U. of M. with the class of 1909. He
taught school for a year before going
back for graduate work He was a
mem'ber of the varsity tennis team.
For the first time in several years,
the opening performance of the Com- .
edy Club can claim the right to being
heralded as a financial success. Ac-
cording to the treasurer's reports of No 01

was made at the Whitney theater last
Saturday evening, about $400 was
taken in. This exceeds by far the Fay
amounts collected from similar Com-
edy Club openings in the past few DISAG
years and is over three times that of
the initial performance of "The Title- Some
Mart" which was given last year.
Not only does a "$400 house" repre-
sent a big success for the Comedy
club, but it is also a fair amount for The

On reading the list of Extension tors tV
