MPUS Music
Serenaders and Hawaiian Musicians
Will Also Contribute to the
Michigan's musical clubs will launch
their biggest project when they start
the 1915-16 season with the Novelty
Concert to be given at 8 o'clock Fri-
day evening in Hill auditorium. Se-
lections by both clubs and numerous
features have been combined in a pro-
gram which promises to excel anything
previously presented 'to a Michigan
"Novelty Concert" ip has been
named, and novelty concert it shall
be. Departing from the conventional,
new music has been substituted for
the established Michigan songs. Of
course, "The Yellow and Blue" will
close the program, but the remaining
numbers' will be presented for the
first time.
The list of features is an imposing
one The Varsity and Midnight Sons
quartets represent groupings of the
best musical talent on the campus.
The Serenaders' trio and sextet are
both famed for their work earlier in
the year. The Hawaiian musicians,
organized by William C. Achi, '17L,
will be welcomed by all lovers of Ha-
waiian melodies.
In "Crusaders," the opening num-
ber of the concert, the Glee club will
have a fine chance for the display of
its powers. It is an exceptional pro-
duction and should show the results of
the many practices devoted to it.
The Glee club has done unusually
well this year under the direction of
Theodore Harrison, the head of the
voice department of the School of
Music. This Is Mr. Harrison's first
year at the helm of the club, but hls
has proved himself to be well fitted
for the work.
The Varsity quartet, though it has
been formed but a short time, will ap-
pear bn tf'e program in a selection
from Van de Water. The quartet is
composed of H. L. Davis, '17, first
tenor, Frank W. Grover, '18, second
tenr, U. Stanley Wilson, '16, bary-
tone, and Staley J. Hiett, '16L, bass.
Peter Hartesveldt, '16L, first tenor,
Harry W. Kerr, '16, W. S. Westerman,
'17, and Harry Carlson, '17, comprise
the personnel of the Midnight Sons
quartet. All are finished musicians
and their number should be well rend-
Nothing needs to be said of either
the Serenaders' trio or sextet as both
have firmly-established reputations.
The trio is made up of H. L. Davis,
'17, guitar, Harold Forsythe, '17, vio-
lin, and Frank Wheeler, '16E, cello.
The sextet comprises Karl Macomber,
'14, banjorine, Leroy Scanlon, '16L,
piano, Leonard Aldrich, '17E, and the
members of the trio. Suffice to say
that there will be an insistent cry of
"more" arise when they finish their
Achi's Hawaiian double quintet con-
sists of six instrumentalists and four
vocalists. The members of the organi-
zation are William C. Achi, '17L, W. F.

Crockett, '16, James L. Driscoll, '18E,
K. Marshall, '17E, A. D. Honey, '17D,
C. C. Ashbaugh, '16, Peter Hardesvelt,

Attractive Book Contains Accounts of
Illricux, De Curel, Caillavet
and Others
ISTS.--By Barrett Clark.-Cincin-
nati: Stewart and Kidd Co.
Such a title as the one which this
one bears is bound to attract atten-
tion, for it would be difficult to find a
more attractive field for study than
the modern French theatre. Someone
has said that France is the "battle
ground of opposing ideas," and the
truth of the statement is no more evi-
dent anywhere than it is in the plays
written in that country during the
last 35 years.
The interest aroused by the title of
Mr. Barrett'ssvolume is not disappoint-
ed. Written in a very clear and read-
able manner, the chapters hold the
attention from the beginning, and the
author has not failed to make the most
of his subject. From the imposing
group of writers that presents itself
for such a work Mr. Barrett has
chosen 13 who seem to him to be the
most important. Brieux, De Porto
Riche, Rostand, Lavedan, Lemaitre,
Bernstein and De Cural are perhaps
the more brilliant lights of the list.
His method is that of calling atten-
tion to the characteristics of each dra-
matist, giving synopses of his better
plays and quoting significant scenes
from one or more of them. This has
been varied to advantage in the cases
of Brieux, De Curel, Caillavet and
Capus, with interesting accounts of
personal interviews which the author
had with these men. This is his de-
scription of one dramatist who is no
doubt more widely known in this
country than any of the others whom
he discusses:
"My first impression of Brieux, as
he sat before a cafe in the Rue Royale,
was a vivid one: a heartily robust,
modest yet assertive man of middle
age, ruddy, almost insolently healthy.
Dressed in a common blue serge suit,
wearing a "Derby" hat, smoking a
cigarette, and sipping a coffee, he re-
minded me of an Englishman or an
American playing the role of a Paris-
ian. Slightly above medium height,
rather thick-set, with a fine, open,
clean-shaven face, short, curly gray-
ish hair, sparkling blue eyeshupon
closer inspection he presented the ap-
pearance of a French peasant who had
however lived long enough in Paris
to acquire a fair amount of metropoli-
tan "polish." Genial, communicative,
at times rather satirical, he strikes

At The T

Bernard who appears in support o
William Farnum in the Fox produc-'

posite to Nance O'Neil in "Princess
Romanoff," makes her bow in screen
work, and already she has become the
best-beloved of motion picture favo-
rites throughout the country. New
York critics declare that Miss Ber-

freshness of method account for her
universal popularity. The actress her-
self ascribes it to an abounding love
