(By Marguerite A. Clark)
Once more Ann Arbor and the Uni-
versity are acclaiming high praises of
Madame Margaret Matzenaur, who ap-
peared in the fourth May Festival con-
cert last evening in Hill auditorium.
She was greater than ever before, if
hat can be 'possible.
Varied Program
Every man of every taste-so long
as it was for something musical-
was catered to in last evening's pro-
gram, which had great variety, yet
perfect balance. Madame Matzenaur
has appeared many times before on
Festival programs, but she was more
ascinating andkperfect than ever.
Being so well known to Ann Arbr
people, she seemed almost to be con-l
ciousof the sure placemshe has gain-
ed in all hearts and, as unassuming as
i in the drawing-room, she appeared
to want to give the best she was capa-
le of as return for their great re-
ard. Her power over her audience
eases to be remarkable only when one
ttempts to put into words the quali-'
ies of her voice which lay at the base
f her power. She possesses a,range
which is nigh unbelievable.
"Earl King" Pleases -
One encore which seemed to please
o exceptional degree was "The Earl
King" from Shubert. Dramatic ability,
which is another of her rare gifts, was
n asset in presenting this number.
The Chicago-'Symphony' orchestra,
onducted by Mr. Frederick Stock,
ave several numbers and accompan-
ed Madame Matzenaur. The orches-
ra played as if it might have been one
nstrument of multiform possibilities
iat was being, operated. Symphony
o. 1 in B flat major, Opus 38 from
humann, showed the greatiskill of the'
ausiciats. The delicately ,,-shaded
nes, sometimes dying into but a
teath, and then mounting to a full
rescendo, were delightful.
Long Applause
Owing to the long applauses of the
udience and the great number of eh-
ores which they seemed to insist up-
n, the program was lenghthened al-
ost an hour beyond what was

The committee on underclass-
men conduct will have a picture
taken at 1:15 o'clock today in
front of Alumni Memorial hall.
That ex-service men on the campus
are desirous of forming a University
post of the American Legion is evi-
dnced by the successful termination
of the four-day campaign for mem-
bers which ended at 12 o'clock last
Thursday afternoon, when'-more than
enough - names necessary for the or-
ganization of a chapter were reported
to the committee in charge of the
drive.. .
With this as their foundation,. the
committee is now completing plans for
a mass meeting to be held next Tues-
day- evening in the Union. The pur-
pose of this meeting will be to bring
together all ex-service men who are
interested in the establishment of the
proposed post, whether they are Le-
gion members or not, and especially
all those who handed in their names
during the campaign. '
Leaders of'the local drive, co-op-
erating with national headquarters at
Indianapolis in their country-wide
"push" for increased membership, urge
a large turnout for this assembly, so
that an effective organization may be
completed before the end of the pres-
ent semester. Further arrangements
and speakers for the occasion will
probably be announced tomorrow.
Lansing, May 21.-Harry Kipke, who
captained last year's state champion
football aggregation has decided to
come to Michigan. He has been twie
chosen All-state halfback and is a fast
and heady basketball player.
Kany, '18, Receives Fellowship
Charles E. Kany, '18, has been
awarded a Frederick Sheldon travel-a
ing fellowship at Harvard university,
'according to word just received here.
He will sail July 6 for Paris. Kany1
won a Harvard scholarship two years
'ago and since that time has been in1
residence there.
Menorah Society to Meet Sunday
The Menorah society will hold its
last meeting of the year Sunday at 2
o'clock in Lane hall. Election of of-c
ficers will be held.,

Crowd Marches Behind Band to F
Shows at Moving Picture
Before a crowd of nuore thn 10,
people the fourteenth annual C
Night ceremonies were celebrated 1
night in Sleepy Hollow. From the '
ginning of the procession to the b
,low until the last of the free mov
the program was a marked succ
ana one which will long be rememb
ed by the class of '23 and others pr
Johnson Opens Ceremonies
With a roaring fire as the ba4
ground Carl E. Johnson, '20, oper
the ceremonies and after a brief(
dress he introduced as the student rq
resentative -Carl T. Hogan, '20E. G;
ing out over the many faces that gra
ed the traditional ceremonies "Pat"
sued a challenge to the students a
painted vividly before their minds I
picture of Michigan supremacy
every field. "Let everyone do:
best for Michigan," was Hoga
theme. He reviewed the past athle
seasons and pleaded to te stude
that they do their part in upholdi
the traditions of their Alma Mater.
Professor Frayer *Oaks
Prof. William A. Frayer, as the f-
ulty speaker, emphaszed the fact tI
the University was in existence p
marily for educational purposes a
that, though it was the duty of eve
student to do his utmost in campus a
tivities, still each must remember t
he is a University student and wou
be judged as such in the reckoning
-worldly achievements.
Frank W. Murphy, '14L, speaking I
the 50,000 Michigan alumni, dwell
at length on the duties which the cla
of '23 were assuming in passing it
the portals of the sophomore class. I
spoke of the feelings of the aluft
called forth by reverses of the pa
season and he urged that the fre
men support all forms of activiti
and make a name for their class in t
annals of Michigan history
Do Snake Dance
With the closing of the addresses t
freshmen formed their - snake dan
and proceeded to dance around t
leaping flames, tossing away forev
the insignia of the bedraggled a:
downtrodden yearlings. Forming
the rear of the '23 band the enti
freshman class proceeded down to t
Wuerth and the Orpheum theaters
the tune of "Hail, Hail, the Gang's A
Here." The upperclassmen bro'
ranks at Sleepy Hollow and continu
directly to the Majestic and the Arca
theaters, where they were also fur
ished with free movies.

(By Associated Press)
Washington, May 21. - Continued
outcry. in the senate against profiteers.
brought matters to a head today when
Republican leaders promised that the
resolution of Senator Harris, Demo-
crat of Georgia, calling for corporation
income and excess tax returns would
be taken up tomorrow for action. With
certain aWendments, Senator Lodge,
majority leader, said he saw no rep.-
son why it should not pass..
Senator Harris widened the scope
of his proposal which would bring the
records into the senate to include 1918
and 1919 returns as well as those of
Six Months Old ,
"Members of the senate," he said,
"stand on the floor denouncing profit-
eers; here's a simple resolution that
only seeks to name them, which 'has
been waiting six months."
The senator forced the issue by-,
moving to discharge the finance com-
mittee from consideration of the re-,
vision, but withdrew his motion on
the promise of immediate action.
Aimed at Profiteers
The house also saw legislative guns
aimed at the profiteer.
Representative King of Illinois in-
troduced a bill to prevent federal
banks renewing loans on re-discount
commodity notes, drafts or bills which
he said would force hoarded commod-
ities onto the market.:

Edde" Johnson Leaves School On
Wager To Win Reputation As Singer;

Afternoon Concert
(By Edna Lucking Apol)
Simple, fascinating, and appealing
elodies sung with an absolute lack
f restraint by 500 children was a un-
ue feature of the Matinee concert
esterday afternoon. Arthur Kraft,.

Arthur Kraft is an organist whose

"Eddie" Johnson is the sort of man
in whom freshmen should 'find much
consolation. "Eddie" himself was a
freshman once - at the University of
Toronto; but he decided that college
was an uncertain path to faie as a
great singer. Were it not for that de-
cision, Ann Arbor would probably not
have the opportunity of hearing to-
night the Edward Johnson who, as
Edoardo di Giovanni, won the plaudits
of musical Italy.
"Eddie" Johnson -- so he styles
himself - left college on a wagering
agreement with his father, and went
to New York. There he became ac-
quained with musicians who encour-
aged and assisted him in securing emL
ployment with remuneration sufficieht
for hks support. After a somewhat
unimportant connection with a large
musical bureau, he was engaged for
a season's run in light opera. From
this venture came the funds which en-
abled him to go to Italy for further

On making his debut in 1912 in
Padua he became known under his
Italianated name, adopted because of
the existing, prejudiceagainst Ameri-
can singers who attempted to sing in
Italian despite their ignorance of the
language. When he returned to Amer-
ica in 1919, he was reluctant to use
his real name because of the fact that
his reputation had been gained under
the name of Edoardi di Giovanni. He
was persuaded by his manager to
make the change on the grounds that
the time for American 'singers had
come. . But he's satisfied now.
"Eddie" Johnson does not believe in
talking of what he will do in the fu-
ture, as he has a wholesome dislike
for explanations.
"I'm not Caruso, I'm not John Mc-
Cormack," he said. "I'm simply Ed-
die Johnson."
By the way, "Eddie" relishes a
slang word now and then, even if he
does hold rather classical views as to
the whys and wherefores of musical
