Finesse of Presentation Manifest
Throughout Entire Program
of Evening
(By Marguerite A. Clark)
Sweetly solemn thoughts held sway;
over the entire audience during the,
program of Verdi's "Manzoni" Re-
iquiem, which was given last evening
in -Hill auditorium as the second May
festival concert. The soloists were
Miss Lenora Sparkes, Miss Carolina
Lazzari, Mr. William Wheler, and
Mr. Leon Rothier. They were accom-
panied by the University Choral union
of ,00 voices, and the Chicago Sym-
phony orchestra, Dr. Albert A. Stanley
Effect Solemn
The stupendous and solemn consum-
mAte effect of the whole program was
shown by'the reaction of the audience
at the close. Everybody sat mute for
an interval of many minutes, and few
words were spoken as they left the
uditorium, so profound was the spell
c st upon them. When words at last
broke forth, they were on every hand
to the effect that it was the most re-
markable and beautiful concert yet
given in which the Choral Union had
There was such a marked unity to
the program that it is hard to say
*hat portion was the best. The fi-
nesse of preparation and presentation
for the concert on the part of each
performer was shown by the transition
from one voit to another, and frorh
orchestra to chorus. Transition was
seldom apparent at the instant of
change, it always being so natural and
perfectly shaded.
Miss Lazzari Here Before '
Miss Sparkes and Mr. Wheeler have
never before ,appeared in Festival
Q oncert program. This was Mr. Roth-
ier's initial appearance here. N ss
Lazzari was already safely placed in
high favor with the Ann Arbor peo-
ple, having appeared last fall on the
pre-festival program.
Mr. Wheeler's lyric tenor voice ex-
actly suited the part he carried, which
included some exceedingly high tones.
Miss Sparkes has a clear and beauti-
ful soprano voice with bell-like quali-
ties. Miss Lazzari has a contralto
voice having the unuual and beauti-
ful ringing note. Mr. Rothier's big,
resonant 'bass gave a fine background
for the quartet.
Voices True
The perfect attack of the chorus and
trueness to score of every voice,
though due in large measure to the, in-
dividuals, should be greatly accredited
to the long work and able direction of
Dr. Stanley, who is in general charge
of the May Festival concerts.
Afternoon Concert
Edwin Arthur Kraft, a Fellow of the
American Guild of'Organists, a former
.student at Yale and a pupil of Gull-
mant and Widor, has .arrived from
Cleveland to play a group of organ
works at the first matinee concert of
the May festiyal at 2:30 o'clock this
afternoon in HiU auditorium.
James Hamilton of the faculty of
the University School of Music 'will
sing a group, of songs and the Chil-
dren's -chorus including 500 voices

Plans for the permanent establish-
ment of a campus chapter of'the Vet-
erans of Foreign Wars were made last
night, when Warren Gilbert, '22, tem-
porary chairman, announced that a'
delegation from the Detroit post of
the V. F. W. would come out to the
University to assist in initiating the
men. The date has not yet been an-
Thirty overseas men were present
last night, and all signified- their de-
sire to have as many veterans on hand
at, the next meeting of the Veterans
oof Foreign Wars, which will take
place at 7:15 next Wednesday evening
in room 306 of the Union, as possible.
Elections of officers was postponed
until the men from Detroit arrive to
take charge. In.giving some of the
aims of the club, Warren Gilbert, '22,
said: "The Veterans of Foreign Wars
will co-operate in every way with the
Overseag club, and we are anxious to
get as many members of the Overseas
club to join us. Thus, the two clubs
will have both a national and a local
backing, making these two clubs
among the strongest on the campus."
The recount which was taken yes-
terday of the votes cast for junior and
sophomore lit Student councilmen to
verify results where ties were report-
ed in the recent All-campus election
shows the election of Renaud Sher-'
wood, '22, over C. Maurice Atkinson,

nior lit race, the second' check result-
ed the same as the initial count, Ed-
ward S. Kingsford, '21, and Donald J.

tion will decide this contest.

To the track athletes of Michigan and other states who will
compete for interscholastic honors Saturday at Ferry field, the entire
University joins in extending a hearty greeting and our hospital-
ity. No occasion of the athletic year means more to Michigan than
this opportunity to offer its cinder oval, its equipment and field
and stadium, for the deciding of this foremost of state high school
We realize that you who are to contest here will have your
thoughts and energies bent mainly on the winning of the meet;
but we hope that, as in the past, you will be able to find time for
"% accompanying your hosts on a tour of the Icampus, there to learn
some of the.reasons why Michigan means so puch to us. We hope,.
also, that your guides will not limit your impressions of the Uni-
versity by confining you to a glance at the campus and a look around
the gym.
Michigan is behind athletics, and plays the game hard. But
Michigan also stands for all the other attributes which make a
great University. The new library and the other recently completed
buildings are symbolic of that Michigan spirit which demands'
equipment worthy of a broad curriculum and good teaching. The
Union is perhaps the greatest evidence of that atmosphere of true
fellowship which you may already have noted in the houses where
you have been entertained. Alumni hall is a testimonial in stone
and garble to the ties whiclino graduate can break with such an
alma mater. We trust that your hosts will show you the working of
the many activities of campus life-the publications, the council, the
class organizations, honor societies, musical and dramatic events.
For all of these things go to make up the University, and it is only
the true and complete impression of college life that we want you to
" carry away.
As in the past,' we know that we shall find many of your num-
ber among us as fellow-students in the years to come; and for the
present we can only unite in giving you the sportsman's. hail:
"May the best man win!"
