Following are brief statements of
interest concerning the visiting art-
Titta Ruffo, widely known as the
"highest priced baritone in the world,"
will make his Ann Arbor debut at the
Wednesday evening concert. Signor
Ruffo since his return to America af-
ter several years absence in Italy
has won many successes in Chicago
and New York, Ann Arbor being one
of the few cities outside of these cen-
ters where he will be heard this sea-

Josef Lhevinne will play in a bril-
liant piano-orchestral- program in
which his virtuosity will be given free
rein. Ever since his recital in a Pre-
festival concert several years ago per-
sistent and numerous requests have
been made by Festival patrons to
have an opportunity to hear him play
with orchestra.
Myrna Sharlow is another native
operatic star who has appeared in
leading roles with Ruffo, Raisa, Gar-
den, and others. Her personality and
general musical talents combine to
mike her an ideal "Marguerite."

Edward Johnson has only recently
returned from I triumphant sojourn
of several years in Italy where under
the assumed name of Edouardo Gio-
vanni he won many honors at the
principal opera houses of that coun-

cert series concert last night in Hill
auditorium and who has been re-
fengaged for the May festival.
Edwin Arthur Kraft has been win-
ning great distinction throughout the
country as a concert organist.

the direction of Professor Albert A.

Verdi at the Thursday evening con-

Faust" on Saturday evening. A large
'chorus of school children under Rus-
sell Carter's direction will take part
in conection with the organ program
Friday afternoon while the Chicago
'Symphony orchestra under Frederick
Stock's baton will participate in all
concerts except the one on Friday af-
Five Sundays in one month isn't
such a rare incident except when that
month happens to be February. For
the first time in 40 years this has
February, 1920, is the honored
month. Chronologists tell us that the
"phenomena" will not ocur again un-
til 1948. One more February in the
Twentieth Century will be so dis-
tinguished, namely, 1976.

"From. Mud to Mufti," by Bruce
Bairnsfather. Published by G. P. Put-
nam's Sons.
Known in England as "the man who
made the Empire laugh," Bruce,
Bairnsfather has extended his fame
as a cartoonist and now adds an ac-
count of his experiences in gathering
material for his sketqhes. "From
Mud to Mufti" is a continuation of
"Bullets and Billets." The two books
taken together present the war from
Bairnsfather's humorously quizzical
Sketches of the type that have given
Bairnsfather his title of "war lord
of laughter" immediately catch the
reader's attention, so pointed and fullz
of action, are they. These cartoons.

riences give the book its particular
credit as a gloom dispeller.,
