MUSIC AND DRAMA
Ladies' Quartet Concert.
A novel and altogether charming
concert was given last evening at the
School of Music by four of the lady
members of the vocal faculty. Three
groups of quartets, a trio, with violin
obligato and solos by each of the sing-
ers made up the program.
The quartet is composed of Miss
Grace Johnson, 1st soprano, Miss Ethel
Smurthwaite, 2nd soprano, Mrs. Jessie
D. Read, 1st alto, Miss Nora C. Hunt,
2nd alto. It is the first time in the
history' of the School of Music- that
such an organization has existed; its
worth was amply justified last even-
ing and it is hoped that numerous
programs of this nature will be given
The ensemble work exhibited re-
markable smoothness, a pleasing del-
icacy of shading, and a finely unified
conception of phrasing and dynamics.
The individual voices blended togeth-
er most perfectly into the intricate
harmonic colorings. The solos which'
each singer presented were enthusias-
tically received, and in each case en-
cores were demanded.
Miss Nellie Goucher played the ac-
comnpaniments in a way that left noth-
ing to be desired, and the violin obli-
gatos by Miss Emily Sadler lent va-
riety as well as color to the program.
"The Light Eternal.".
'The Light Eternal," a serious,
thoughtful play, handsomely costum-
ed, worthily presented, and staged with
a richness aid artistic judgment sel-
dom equalled, will be present-
ed at the New Whitney theater Sat-
urday, matinee and evening, April 20.
It is a sombre, though stirring dra-
ma, carried to a conclusion relentless-
ly tragic-serving, like its exemplars,
"Ben-Hur" and "The Sign of the
Cross," to illustrate the devotion of
the early Christian martyrs. It does
not aim to gratify the morbid, either
by the gruesome presentments of tor-
ture as in "The Sign of the Cross," or
by the seductive pictures of Bacchali-
an revelry as in "Quo Vadis."
Its inspiration is found in a clean
and decent dramatic plot, and its ap-
peal extends alike to all classes that
find interest in the truthful and con-
vincing historical spectacle heightened
by a master touch of human interest.
BOARD EXPLAINS MICHIGAN'S .
STAND TOWARDS CONFERENCE

table and in the case of football play-
ers, regard competition without prop-
er training as a menace to the individ-
ual and the sport.
- 4. Michigan proposes to continue
to live up to the highest standard of
collegiate athletic purity, but feels that
matter should be dealt with entirely
by her own authorities. We therefore
have no intention of returning to the9
present Conference and wish this fact
remembered and understood by all.
5. We would welcome competition+
with any of our friends now members
of the Conference. We have never
understood why we have been boycot-
ted. All the Conference colleges play
other institutions not members of the
Conference, persist in a rule which
prevents their playing Michigan alone.1
We hereby express the hope that the
Conference may soon see the injustice
of their rule forbidding competition
with us to the end that relations which
in the past have been so cordial, may
soon be resumed.

was not conducive to delay and the
spectators were satisfied.

CAtNFIELD SPEAKS UPON LEGAL
ASPECTS OF TITANIC AFFAIR
Secretary Goddard in Talk Before Bar-
risters Tells of Value of Law-
yer Who is Progressive
Mr. G. L. Canfield, who was the
guest of the Barristers at a luncheon
given by the senior law society at the
Union Friday noon, addressed the or-
ganization upon legal aspects of the
Titanic disaster. Mr. Canfield, who
is delivering a series of lectures on
Admiralty law in the law department,
stated the principles of maritime law
covering such an accident and outlin-
ed the probable proceedings and the
outcome of such actions in the past.
Secretary Goddard spoke on "The
Attitude of the Lawyer." He depre-
cated the attitude of those members
of the profession who blindly attack
all suggestions for remedying appar-
ent defects in the administration of
the law. Instead he suggested that
criticism and suggestion should be met
with an open mind and their merits
examined and considered. The value
of a lawyer who will be progressive
