faculty member of the University to

iganensian is to be dedicated it was
decided at a meeting of the senior lit-
erary clas Wednesday afternoon.
The lagest attendance of the year
marked the transaction of important
business including the appropriation
of more than $100 for the purchase of

FOR ASSISTANCE ON
FAMOUS ACCOMPANIST TO
ASSIST' IN RENDITION
Three famous arias besides several'
groups of French, Italian, and Eng-
lish songs will distinguish the pro-
gram that Riccardo Stracciari, the
Italian operatic baritone, will offer
at the Choral Union concert at 8
o'clock this evening in Hill auditor-
ium with the assistance of Isaac Van
Grove, one of the finest accompanists
in the country.
Like most European artists Mr.
Stracciari is a linquist with a reper-
toire of Spanish, French, English,
Italian, and Russian. He did not
know a word of English until eight
months ago when he began studying
the language. His unusual proficien-
cy is a test of his linguistic skill.
The program is as follows:
Aria-"Oh, casto flor mi sospir,"
from "Re d'Lahore" ...... Massenetj
Cade la sera (Shadows of Even-
ing) ........ ........Mililotti
Star vicine (only smile, I will ask
nothing more).......Salvator Rosa
April ....................... Tosti'
Aria-"O de' verd' anni miei," +
from "Ernani".. ........Verdi+
Two Neapolitan Songs:

emely Organizations Vital
Without such organization and such

common desires, will, or purpose. And,
hough the creation of a keen group con-
