Chamber Society
Offers Unusual
IConcert Program
(T.A. S.)
Chamber music has not often ap-'
peared on Ann Arbor's musical cal-
endar. Indeed, in these days of solo-
ists and symphonies, there has been
little room for this particular type of
music with the result that the major-
'Ity of the concert-going public has
not been given a chance to decide for
itself what its particular attractions
In spite of this fact, one of the fin-
est expositions of chamber music, on
record was given In Hill auditorium
last night by the New York Chamber'
Music society, led by Carolyn Beebe,
pianiste. An ideal balance of strings,
wood wind, and brass, used with a
precision and evenness which seemed
to produce a, single ' perfect tone; re-
vealed the peculiar charms attained in
chamber music.
Opens with Beethoven
The program was opened with a
Beethoven quintet in three movements'
for pianoforte, clarinet, oboe, French
horn, and bassoon. This number par-
ticularly, exhibited the noteworthy
ability of Henri De Busscher, oboist,
who showed a remarkable control of
a far from easily mastered instru-
ment. A Brahms quintet for clarinet
and strings followed with Gustave
Langenus leading in the clarinet part.
The allegro and adagio movements of
this number were particularly effec-
tive with the violins furnishing a del-
icate accompaniment along with the
richer and more sonorous tones of the

be called ed by Mss Beebe, Paul Kefer, cell-
aon. Theist, and William Kincaid, flutist. The
numbers were of a popular but none
the less artistic type, and the three in-
struments provided one of the most

Yuletide Fund
Will Brighten
Tots' Christmas
Contribution boxes will be placed
in all buildings on the campus Tues-
day and Wednesday in orler that the
University students and faculty may
have an opportunity to give generous-
ly to the Christmas fund for provid-
ing a real Yuletide for Ann Arbor's
poor children. The money collected
from these boxes will be used to pur-
chase 450 baskets qf fruit to be distrib-
uted in the hospitals, and any , re-
maining amount will be applied t the
general clothing and toy fund in the
city campaign.
Sororities Care for Children,
This contribution is in addition to
the work to be done by fraternities
and sororities, many of which have
agreed to entertain, feed, apd clothe
completely from one to three chil-
dren apiece, on some day this week.
Up to this time every sorority, and 30
fraternities, hive arranged to care for
children in this way. Persois not'
connected with any of the houses, but
who, desire to contribute to the gen-
eral campaign, will be reached by the
boxes on the campus.
Nurses Will Help
Early Christmas morning nurses
will distribute the fruits and .toys to
the hospitals, themselves arranging the
baskets after the University houses
have decorated them. Christmas carols
sung by the nurses will attend the
distribution, and many children who
would otherwise have had no Christ-
mas will be made happy by the gifts.
Few Unprovided For
At present, the -names of children
who require entire outfitting are al-
most all taken care of by the frater-
nities and pororities, according to J..
E. Goodwillie, '1k, president of the Y.
M. C. A. and general director of the
plan. Some children are to be par-
tially outfitted as well as entertain-
ed, and fraternities wishing to take
some of these to their houses for a
Christmas celebration may' secure
names by phoning to Goodwillie.
Snap ProMised In
From its pretty girl on the cover
to the las-t ad on the back, the adjec-
tives, "smart, unusual, and varied,"
are reputed to be the only words which
properly convey the merit of the
Christmas Gargoyle, which will be put
on sale to Yuletide shoppers Wednes-
The farthest possible digression from
all that is rubber-stampy and time-
worn is promised for the holiday is-
sue. Neither art, jokes, no stories
are of the sort that will be forgotten
soon, or remembered as having been
seen before. The staff prophesies that
this will be much the best issue of the
Several short stories and articles
of merit, o say nothing of its briefer-
and snappier material, will help to
make the issue one of the most ac-
ceptable of Christmas presents, wheth-
er alone or as the first instalment o
a year's gift subscription.

Dean Mortimer E. Cooley, Dean Wil-
liam H. Butts, and Prof. W. C. Hoad
will speak at a freshman engineers'
smoker to be held on the main 'floor,
of the Michigan Union at 7:30 to-
night. /
Music will be furnished by the
freshman "Jazz" orchestra. Cider,
doughnuts, cigarettes, pipes, and to-
bacco will be furnished. Tickets may
be obtained until 4 o'clock at either
Graham's . book store or Calkin's
drug store.

Approximately 200 committeemen of
the Union life membership drive will
be guests of the Union at a dinner af
6 o'clock tonight in recognition of
their, work in the three day cam-
paign of last week. Toasts by the
Union to the committees and by the
pommittees to the Union, a quartette,
orchestra music, and other features
will entertain the men at the din-
The meeting will take the form of
a get-together and pep gathering.
Donald Porter, '21, has notified all the
chairmen to have their men out, and
he requests that everyone come.
Seated at the' head table will be
the winning team, and the other men
will be seated around their team cap-
tains at tables. Partially checked
figures of the campaign show that a
total of 2,154 memberships were se-
cured, although duplications on cards

Perfect Ensemble
Wolf-Ferrari's "Sinfonia Da Came-
ra," played by the entire society, was
the evening's most remarkable exam-
ple of ensemble playing. 'In addition
to those already mentioned, Pierre
Henrotte, first violin, Herbert So-
man, second violin, San uel Lifschey,
viola, Emil Mix, double bass, Ugo Sa-
volina, bassoon, and Joseph Franzl,
French horn, appeared. The adagio.
and. the vivace con spirito were the
outstanding movements, the closing of
the latter with its three flawless
chords being especially effective.
