Noted Conductor
Leads Masterly
)M1usic Rendition
(By Edna Lucking Abfel)
Hill auditorium's platform was hon-
ored last night by one of the great
world orchestral conductors and the
organization he has made famous in
two years' time-Ossip Gabrilowitsch
and the Detroit Symphony orchestra,
with Mrs. George B. Rhead as solo-
ist. '
Mr.Gabrilowitsch is an imposing
personality of the emotional type. He
has the power of securing from his
artists their very best and of giving
of himself completely to the task in
hand. In his interpretations there is
no mistiness or doubt but clear,
clean-cut precision. Every man is'
constantly on the alert, thus making
tIhe orchestra a splendid specimen of
the flawless in musical rendition.
Soloist Convincing
Mrs. Rhead's playing is replete with
individuality, broad and' convincing.
She has at her command.a technique
that e'nables her to gain effects of in-
effable grandeur and c6ntracting le-
giero nuances. She as the recipient
of many handsome ouquets.
The program began with von Web-
er's overture, "Oberoh" ushered in by
a D major horn solo, slow and sus-
tained,, answered by the strings and
finally increasing in strength Ito - in-
clude the majority of the instru-
ments. The main theme from "Over
the Dark Blue Waters" was a, viva-'
cious movement oft-repeated.

Pictures of Michigan's All-American
gridiron men grouped in 'a cut of
a football is one of the novelties of
the Michigan-Minnesota game Athletic
Program which is the souvenir num-
ber this year. In adidtion to this
there are three pages of individual
pictures of the players and a two page
cut of the 1919 squad.
"Back the Team," is the subject of an;
article in which Prof. R. N. Aigler of
the Law school, deplores the student'
who calls himself a supporter of, the
team merely because -ie wagers his
father's money on the score. Prof.
3. R. Brumm of the rhetoric depart-
ment also admonishes against this
false idea of, loya.lty and urges more
substantial backing of the team in a
story dalled "Grandstand Athletics."
Two articles written by women give
a new version of the gridiron pastime.
,One of them concerns Harold Rye.
