Detroit Symphony
And Noted Artist
Appear Tomorrow'
Bendetson Netzorg, pianist, and the
Detroit Symphony orchestra, Ossipl
Gabrilowitsch, conductor, will give
the final concert on the Extra con-
cert series at 8 o'clock tomorrow
night in Hill auditorium.
Of special interest is the fact that
Mr. Netzorg is an artist born and
raised in Michigan. He was born at
Mecosta in 1888. His family later
moved to Battle Creek, where he was
graduated from the high school and
in 1906 was graduated from the Battle
Creek Conservatory of Music.
The next period, in his life was
spent in Berlin, where he studied
piano four years and harmony three
years, and then taught two years
more in the German capital. At pres-
ent Mr. Netzorg is teaching privately
in Detroit. Since' his return to the
United States, he has toured the Mid-
dle West successfully as a concert
pianist, and has also been heard fre-
quently with the great Middle West-
ern orchestras.
Tomorrow night's concert will end
the first, entire season of orchestra
music attempted by the School of
Music management. While the series
has not been as well supported as was
hoped, it has nevertheless been a dis-

Commencement problems them-
selves were taken up last Thursday
by The Daily, but at that time no so-"
lutions of the pressing plight were
considered. The' most conservative
estimates for the demands for seats
at Commencement have been placed
at more than 5,300, while the capac-
ity of the auditorium is but 4,530. The
former figure excludes the seats for
alumni, which are usually more than
16 per cent of the capacity of Hill
auditorium. Thus the minimum de-
mand would probably be more than
......Assure All Seats
It is said that if sufficient public-
its were given the occasion and all
assured of seats, that the demand
would be likely to exceed 15,000 to
'20,000 people. It is obvious at any
rate that something must be done to
relieve the situation. ,Either *each
senior will be limited to one ticket
or the number of- seats available in-
creased by holding the Comfnence-
ment exercises in a larger auditor-
The Michigan Technic in an arti-
cle of its March issue published a
solution of the problem worked out
by Arthur J. Stock, Jr., '22E, in which
the author suggested that amplifiers

Rapid Succession of Novelties in Act
II Sends Play Toward
Successful End
'(By 'Three Mere en)
A favored trio of mere men sat as
privileged spectators and critics at
the matinee performance of the Jun-
ior Girls' play at the Whitney theater
One thought was dominant in the
minds of these three men during the
entire presentation &f an artistic dis-
play of talent.
That Michigan men should be de-
nied the p4asure of viewing and ap-
preciating a production of such mer-
it - this was the thought.
An atmosphere of dignity was cre,
ated by a somewhat too lengthy pro-
logue, yet the dignity was not op-
pressive, affording as it did an oppor-
tunity for a later relaxation.
A touch of the, tragic, of melan-
choly, of calm; and then, with a rapid
rise, the light, cheerful and airy free-
dom which only girls can express -
this was the function of the many
solo numbers and the varied chor-
Magus Is Popular
Anne Mushkin, as the Magus, was
one of the dominating characters of
the play. Her song, "The Mighty
Magus Am I ".in the middle of the
first act, brought the first comedy
As a sharp contrast, the dance of
the Hand Maidens gave vent for a
talent still more eased and by far' one
of the most delicate dancing num-
bers on the program was this one in
which Caribbel Schmidt revealed an
ability as a dancer which was con-
tinuous throughout..
Act II was a rapid successions of,
novelties; opening with the Bell
Chorus, which centered about the ex-
cellent dancing of Anita Sauer; The
"Scientific Expedition," in which Pro-
fessor Robson and the "College Men"
first appeared, was the cue for a real
wave of laughter. With the excep-
tion of unruly knobs of hair when
their straw hats came off, these
"men" presented a grace which flat-
tered the real male collegiate prod-
Emulating the fashion "set by the
Dean of Women" the Knicker girls
appeared. If this be a futuristic view
of the campus, may the future hast-
it is not surprising that Professor
Bobson's knees trembled at the ad-
vent of the Cannible Chorus. They
were a fearsome lot.
The MacLean Sisters, Deborah
Jones, and Frances Jackson made
four as pretty mannikin dolls as even
the gracious Princess Tahi, Louise
Graham, could have desired. Their
stiff but rhythmic movements through
an intricate dance won for them the
entire affection of the audience (in-
cluding the three nale spectators).
A flexible plot, catchy lines, ly-
rics and n*sic that sustained the ac-
tion - and at times ran away with
it - are deserving of more than pass-
ing comment
(Costumes Effective
Costumes effective in their delicate
simplicity were imbo'rtant; factors in
lending atmosphere. Adequate set-
tings contributed in a large measure
to the successful staging.
Rapid movement characterized the
final act, which opened with an ex-
quisite solo number by Caribbel

If men are admitted to the Junior
Girls' play, and the girls have signi-
fied their willingness to give at least
one more performance, the "Monoele
Chorus" will receive its full measure
of appreciation.
The training which Prof. John L.
Brumm has given the girls who made
the Junior Girls' play has accented
something beside mere professional-
ism, It has brought out the fine and
more subtle qualitIes which girls are
able to portray.
"Scepters and Serenades" is an ar-
tistic stage production.
Michigan men may be trusted to
realize this, and appreciate it. The
girls "back-stage" have signified

Jarch Gargoyle
Will Appear On
Sale Wednesday
The Gargoyle be praised! It's. com-
ing out Wednesday with a big March
number, and contains never a hint
of a gag about breezy March winds
in connection wih breezy Gargoyle
jokes. Clayton Seagears, '23, is re-
sponsible for a brilliant orange cover
featuring a young salesman in the
act of selling oil stock to a fair dam-
seI, all of which lends to the atmos-
phere desired for a Burlesque Num-
The frontispiece is by A. Van-
Avery, '24, and is entitled "A Modern
Romeo." It illustrates a youth sling-
ing the wicked serenade on a bass
sax, while his Juliet vamps the one
who gazes upon the picture.
"Drier Learning, in America" is in
entire harmony with the publications
of the campus. In it the illustrious
G. D. E., in spirit if not in person,
gives his views of Michigan. Hle'con-
demns every feature of it with the ex-
ception of President Buxton's gar-
age, which, in his opinion, is "the best
looking building on the campus." A
cartoon of G. D. E. in the fiesh as
"The Modern Sir Galahad" lends to
the serious thought of the article.
For those who hunger further
along literary, lines there are some
poems. "Ye Willage Wampyre" is all

. Apparatus Simple
It is said that the apparatus which
would be used at Ferry field could be
of simpler, construction than, that e'm-
ployed at Arlington or at the inaud-
uration. There are three principal
parts to the equipment, a transmitter,
an amplifier and loud speaking re-
ceivers. The transmitter is similar
to the ordinary telephone transmit-
ter, except that the one suggested is
much more sensitive to the inflections,
and refinements of the human voice!
than is that employed in. telephones.'
The transmitter is placed several feet
in front of the speaker and does not;
interfere with the vision of the audi-'
ence. In fact, with an assembled
crowd the instrument is not notice-
According to Stock's article,. "the
amplifier is the brains of the appa-
ratus," and is,_simlar to the kind used
in wireless equipment. The receivers
look much like the rectangular meg-
aphones or wooden horns containing
diaphragms and accessories, arrang-
ed in a cluster or group near the
speaker. By this arrangement the
voice seems to come Prom the speak-
er rather; than the horns.
