400 Youngsters Render Earl Moore's
Cantata Well; Miss Struble's-
Violin Popular
(By L. A. K.)
Before an exceptionally enthusias-
tic audience, and displaying marked"
dramatic and vocal ability, Mme. Lu-
cretia Bori brought the fourth con-
cert of the' May festival series to a
fitting climax last night with -her
wonderfully fine ' rendition of the
Aria, "Mi chiamano Mimi", from "La
Mme. Bori is the possessor ,of a
charming personality and sings, not
only with great clearness of tone, but
with perfect control, and with a
technique of such high development
that her work is made well nigh
without fault.
The Chicago Symphony orchestra
seemed in last night's concert to be{
at its best.
Prof. Albert A. Stanley's sym-
phonic poem "Attis", Opus 16, also
was rendered by special request un-
der Professor Stanley's own direc-
tion, and, met with an excellent re-
ception, the composer responding to
his enthusiastic encores and receiv-

With their' small voices blending in
th'e quaint skrains of three old folkf
songs, the Ann Arbor school children,
led by George Oscar Bowen, began'
their program yesterday afternoon in
a manner that won the enthusiasm ofw
all those present.
Sikes' Voice Pleases
The chorus gave the first perform-1
ance of Earl V. Moore's cantata, "The
Voyage of Arion", for children's chor-
us and baritone solo. 'Dhe work is3
particularly adapted to children's
voices, and the 400 who sang in it
told the story with a sincerity and ex-
pressiveness that insured its suc-
Chase Sikes, baritone, took the solo
part in the cantata and also sang;
three songs: a recitative and, aria
from Handel's "From the Rage of the,
Tempest"; an old Scotch folk song,
"The Praise of Islay";'and Dens,
more's "Roadways". He sings with
a frankness which makes his work ex-
tremely popular. His voice is rich,
clear, and powerful, and he uses it toa
Violinist Scores Success
Another factor which made this
program especially popUiar was the
playing of Marian Struble, violinist.
Her work is full of vitality and ex-
cellent in interpretation and tech-t
nique. In the romance and allegrof
movements pf the Wieniawski con-
certo she carried her audience first tol
dreamy reverie and then to restless-
ness in the last movement,

ness the event.1

speech explained the significance oft
Cap night and asked that the class of
'24, the first freshman class under the
administration of President Marion L.1
'Burton, do its part in carrying on the
work for a greater Michigan.1
Speaking as a faculty representa-
tive -and 'also as a private in the I
ranks of the vast army of Michigan
alumni, Prof. Lewis M. Gram said itf
was up to all who have the interest
of the University at heart to be
worthy of the confidence placed int
the University by the recent legisl -

l tive appropriations. A university is
measured, not by its buildings, but by
the fibre and integrity of the finished
product, Professor Gram said. "What-
ever you get while at Michigan, get
the inspiration of loyalty," he urged.
Ten Get Blankets
Professor Gram told the purpose of
awarding the M blankets, and at the
close of his address blankets were
presented to 10 men who had won an
M in one sport for two years. Those
receiving blankets were: E. E. Wei-
man, '21, three years in football;
Ralph 0. Rychener,-.'22M, three years
in basketball; Jack G. Williams, '21,
three years in basketball; Benjamin
Weiss, '21D, two years in basketball;
Wiliam P. Fortune, '24L, three years
in football; Lawrence Butler, '21,
three years in track; Peter Van Bov-
en, '21, two years in baseball; James
I. McClintock, '21L, two years in bas-
ketball; Alan Boyd, '21L, two years in
footfall; John S. Perrin, '21, two y'ears
in football and two years in base-
ball; Harold Rye, '21, two years in
football. Other blankets .will beI
awarded at a later date to men who
were not able to be present at the
presentation last night.
The freshmen were welcomed into
the fellowship of Michigan men by
Albert C. Jacobs, '21, speaking for the
student body. He warned the fresh-
men that, while they are to reap the
benefits of the labors of all who have
preceded them in the University, they
are obligated to prove themselves
wofthy of the privileegs open to
them by fair play and unselfish serv-
ice to the University.

Wesbrook's Playing Feature; Oppon-
ent Downed in 12 Consecntive
(By a Special Correspondent)
Amherst,. Mass., May 20.-Michigan
scored a 6 to 0 victory over Amherst
in tennis .today, the Wolverines easily
copping all the matches. Only in the
match between Merkel and Brickett
was it necessary to play the ull three
sets, the Easterner taking the second
set with a score of 8 to 10. '
The Michigan team played as good
a brand of tennis as they have shown
this year, as the scores indicate. The
Amherst team fought a losing contest,
all the way through, but put up a con-
tinuous battle nevertheless.
A feature of the contest was the
match between Wesbrook and Titus in
which the Michigan captain downed
his opponent in 12 consecutive games.
The Wolverines are now on their
way to Ithaca "where they are sched-
uled to take on the Cornell team to-
morrow. The men are all in excel-
lent shape and are looking forward to
a good battle with the Ithacans.
The scores of today's games were as
follows: Singles, Wesbrook vs. Tit-
us, 6-0, 6-0; Munz vs. Snider, 6-3, 6-4;
Angell vs. Plimpton, 6-2, 6-4; Merkel
vs. Brickett, 6-4, 8-10, 7-5. Doubles,
Munz and Angell vs. Titus and Snider,
6-2, 9-7; Wesbrook and Reindel vs.
Arnold and Plimpton, 6-2, 6-1.

the present academic year is off the.
press - it went on sale this morn-
ing - and after a thorough perusal
of it, the verdict cannot be otherwise
than that the staff has saved enough
good material until this time to make
the final issue if not the best, at least
one of the very best of the year. An
unusually large amount of excellent
stories and articles, generously in-
terspersed with enlivening cuts serv-
ed to substantiate the claims of the
first sentence and the staff of the
publication should be highly compli-
mented upon such a fitting close to
an unusually successful year.
There are two alumni articles this
month, one by Rob Wagner, author of
that extremely interesting book enti-
tled "Film Folk", who gives students
some inside information upon the

Lester E. Waterbury, editor of the
"Chimes", takes advantage of his last
opportunity to leave behind'him some
of the thoughts which he has'-accumu-
lated during his editorship. Clarence
Hatch Jr. occupies some little space
with an interesting account of base-
ball "doings" on Ferry field. George
E. Sloan continues his article begun
last month and entitled "Wanted --
a University Press", and there is al-
so an interesting personal comment
upon Prof. Albert A. Stanley. James
I. McClintock, last year's editor of
"Chimes", has some worth while
things to say upon the possibility of
student government.
The May issue contains but one bit
of fiction, a short story by Chester N.
Hess. There are several excellent
poems; however, and the usual depart-

Verdi's "Aida" at 8 o'clock this eve-
ning and a concert by the Chicago
Symphony orchestra with Fannie
Bloomfield Zeisler, pianist, as soloist
at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon will
make up the last two concerts in the
twenty-eighth annual May Festival.
Mme. Zeisler, the soloist at the aft-
ernoon concert 'is considered one of
the best 'pianists of the day. It has
been said of her that "the only pianist
with whom she can be compared in
her power to hold and move an audi-
ence is Paderewski." She will play
the maestoso, larghetto, and allegro
vivace movements of the Chopin Con-
certo No. 2 in F minor, opus 21. The
orchestra numbers on this program
are the overture to "The Magic Flute"
by Mozart and Schubert's Symphony
No. 10 in F minor, opus 21.
At the evening concert an unusual

union, and the Chicago Symphony or-
chestra will combine in a"concert per-
formance of Verdi's great opera. The
part of Aida will be sung by Lenora
Sparkes of the Metropolitan Opera
company. The part of Amneris goes
to Cyrena Van Gordon, mezzo-contral-
to of the Chicago Opera company. The
quality of her work is well known to
patrons of Ann Arbor concerts. Grace
Johnson-Konold, of the School of Mus-
ic, will sing the role of the high priest-
Charles Marshall, the sensational
tenor with the Chicago Opera com-
pany, will sing the part of Radames.
The parts of Amanasro and Ramphis
go to Arthur Middleton, bass-baritone
of the Metropolitan Opera company,
while Gustaf Holmquist, a real bass,
will take the role of the king. Robert
