Second Night of May Festival is
Another Brilliant Performance,
With All Artists
HILL AUDITORIUM IS A4AIN
FILLED TO ITS CPACITY.
Schumann-Heink and Florence Hinkle
(wry Leading Roles in
Again last evening the Hill audi-
torium was the center of interest to
all Ann Arbor for the second concert
of the May Festival. Again the vast
hall was filled to capacity, and again
the tconcert left nothing to be desired
In point of performance, inspiration, or
enthusiasm. From the thunderous en-
semble of chorus and orchestra down
to the thinnest tone of voice or violin,
the ear never caught the faintest echo.
Chorus Achieves Triumph
In the Verdi "Requiem" the Choral
Union fulfilled the promise it made
on Wednesday evening by its impres-
sive performance of Albert Stanley's
Laus Deo." Mr. Stanley's conducting
was masterful, and his chorus was
finely responsive to every shade of his
In finish, in tonal modulation, and in
precision of attack, the chorus sur-
passed all its previous efforts. The
softly breathed accompaniment to the
opening theme of the violins, and the
long sustained chords through the solo
recitative in the final "Libera mo'
were beautifully intoned. In the spln-
did climax of the "Sanctus" the chor-
us rose to a superb volume with no ev-
idence of effort and with a triumphant
The wisdom of Mr. Stanley's judg-
ment in selecting the too-seldom heard
"Requiem" was apparent to everyone.
It is not all what our northern temper
would call sacred music., but it is rich
with all of Verdi's melodic and orches-
tral resources, and is above all pro-
Artists Please- Audience.
Miss Florence Hinkle in the soprano
part gave a performance that was
spect. Her art is supreme in its poise,
its restraint, and its emotional purity.
Her voice last evening was marvel-
ously pure and clear. Her high mez-
zo-voce notes were free, clear, and.
delicious to hear; and all down the
range of her tones there was perfect
smoothness, perfect control.
Madame Schumann-Heink won the
ovation which she always wins. Hers
is an art that seemingly can never
decline. She will always be the same
noble woman and the same noble art-
ist, and she will always move the
hearts of her hearers with that ap-
peal which comes from her own great
The tenor role of the "Requiem"
gave Lambert Murphy no very good
opportunity to display his finely man-
aged voice. His tones were well mod-
ulated and resonant, and his phrasing
broad and meaningful. Henri Scott
justified the expectation which his rep-
utation has aroused, and his singing
won high praise.
For the afternoon concert today
Mme. Schumann-Heink will be the so-
loist, and the Children's chorus will
make its appearance in "The Walrus
and the Carpenter." The evening con-
cert will be somewhat popular in char-
acter, with Signor Pasquale Amato, the
famous baritone as soloist.

One of the distinctive features which

sale at the usual campus stands Tues-
day morning, which is earlier than
that of any other western annual. De-
spite the fact that this year's book
is larger and reppresents more
beautiful workmanship than any other
edition, the annual will sell at the
same price of $2..50.
This year's annual will be bound in
full black cow-hide pebbled grain
leather, stamped with the title and
university seal in gold leaf. The an-
nual contains 700 pages of engravings
and reading matter. A sample copy of
the book has been received by the edi-
tors, and because of the especially at-
tractive features, the annual this year,
in beauty and design, far outclasses
that of any previous edition.

Conductors and Board of Trade Aro
Coming Today From Detroit
With the automatic register indicat-
ing that 6,982 visitors had passed
through the halls of the engineering
building up to 10:00 o'clock last night,
the first day of the initial exhibit of the
engineering, architectural, and forest-
ry departments came to a successful
close. All day the corridors and the
exhibition rooms were filled to their
capacity with a crowd of May festi-
val visitors, and students and faculties
of other departments.
All of thespecial features were op-
erated, and the booths were arranged
so as to accommodate the large crowd
most efficiently., Guides directed the
crowd at every turn, and although
there was a little confusion in the
morning, at the beginning of the af-
ternoon order had been established
and all sightseers followed a definite
Conductors and Merchants Coming.
Because of the visit of 1,000 conduc-
tors from the Detroit convention, and
the delegation of'50 members of the
Cleveland Board of Trade this morn-
ing, who are coming especially to see
the university and exhibit, the big
show will be continued in operation
from 9:00 until 3:30 o'clock this af-
As a result, all classes in the engi-
nieering department will be excused
for the day. All junior engineers who
are not engaged at the present on the
exhibit, are requested to meet at Dean
Effinger's office at 8:45 o'clock this
morning, to march to the Michigan
Central station to meet the delegation
of conductors, and act as guides to
them during their two hours' stay on
Among the interesting features of
the exhibit are the miniatur e irri-
gation project, the cement plant, the
water turbines, the naval tank, the ar-
chitectural drawings, and the forestry
display rooms. The continuous illus-
trated lecture on forestry by Prof.
Lovejoy was attended by a crowd
throughout the afternoon.
Freshman Work of President Shown.
A curiosity is a design of a stone
bridge, by Pres. H. B. Hutchins, '71,
which was drawn when he was a
freshman in the engineering depart-
ment, in '68.
The electrical conditions of the at-
mosphere prevented the sending of
wireless messages, but if conditions
permit today, the two dozen which
were handed in during the day will
be sent this morning.

Saturday afternoon, they will be in-
structed for two weeks. and will make
their first public tryout on May 30 at

outs will be given before their selec-
tion, and the successful candidates
will take office in the fall.
