"Lahoma" is a story of the early
me ll & days in the territory now known
as Oklahoma. Every man, in those
'Vn days, was a maker of history. The
countryanow comprising Oklahoma
was, in 1880, at the time the story
opens, known as No Man's Land.
It was set aside as Indian country
and white settlers were forbidden
t ! +j]\ 1to locate on it.
A picturization of John Breck-
enridge Ellis's novel of the .same
name, "Laho'fna" depicts in vivid
manner the adventure and ro-
mance of white settlers on the for-
~ **$ ~bidden, land. Brave-hearted and
courageous were these men and
their women folks. Pioneers in a
is _ r rnew country where dangers lurked
at every turn, they blazed the trail
h< to civilization.
s.: r ;<oThe central figure in the story
is a girl, beautiful Lah'oma, a waif
who is brought up in the Western
} k a .O ┬░hills by two kind old men, one an
mutlaw and the other a cynic. They
9-. 9 are like doting mothers in their
0 tender care of the girl. A pretty
little romance is introduced when
dtion Lahoma falls in love with a young
cowboy, who is looked upon with
7 Coxdisfavor by her guardians.

Ailbert A. Stanley and his re-

of a highly interesting article
ied recently in the Christian

In addition to his accomplishments
of organization, Dr. Stanley has found
time for composition, for, making a
thorough catalogue of the famous
Stearns musical collection, and for
serving many musical organizations
through the state and nation as mem-

1888, according to the article, Dr.
es Burrill Angell, then president1

a man to fill the chair fpf music.
result of this investigation was a

ce, R. I., and the addition of one

king of the University of Michigan.

Bell brought back to Ann Arbor

Organized Society
Dr. Stanley's first official act at
chigan was to organize the Uniyer-
y Musical society.- This body set
t upon the, task of accomplishing
ree important aims. First, to or-
,nize the University School of Music,
here instruction should be offered in
e various branches of the subject.
cond, to maintain a University
ioral Union, for the purpose of
udying and presenting choral work.
irdI, to maintain a symphony orches-
a, to provide training for students in
is branch. So thoroughly did Dr.
anley undertake th.is work that each
these aims soon became a reality.
he Monitor declares that "for years
an Arbor has been recognized as a
isical center of the middle West."
The story of Dr. Stanley's work at
ichigan is a story of growth-growth
substantial as it is marvelous. te-
nning with a very small staff, Dr.
aailey has gathered together 30 ex-
rts. Twe'lve thousand students have
en enrolled for special study. The
