The performance of Haydn's Quar-
tet in B fiat, played by Mr. and Mrs.t
Samuel P. Lockwood, Miss MarianG
Struble, and Mr. Herbert. Grant, was1
noteworthy. It was played withr1
satisfying unity and lack of confu-
sion, yet the instruments were well-'l
blended. The composition, undramat-I
ic in mood, held a thematic interest
that was enhanced by .emphatic ac-;
centing, unity of attack, and fine fin-.
ish. of technique throughout Partic-
ularly pleasing was' the clearness andE
spirit with which passages of distinct
counterpoint formation were done. t
Mr. Lockwood's solo work showed
a perfection of technique and a skill
of interpretation' that added to the
spriteliness of Hubay's Hejre Kati,1
the thoughtful hood \of Tschaikovshy's
Christmas, the stately deliberation ofj
Mozart's Minuet, and the color and
dramatic intensity of Zarzychi's Ma-I
zurka. The tone qualities of the vio-
lin and piano in combination weres
rather harsh and lacking in mellow-E
ness. Miss Lundell's effective ac-E
companying was pleasing.C
Mrs. Rhead's performance of four;
Chopin numbers was received witb
enthusiasm. She played with remark-
able ease and finish, and increased in
spirit and skill, as her performance
progressed, the Waltz, Opus 37, No. 3,
being done most gracefully and color-
fully.
Mr. and Mrs. Wheeler, singing to-
gether, were unusually delightful.
Their voices blend. in harmonious per-
fection, and their excellent enuncia-
tion, particularly of the French and
Italian songs,' so consistently chosen
as to type, added considerably to the
effectiveness and feeling of 'their
singing. The appealing and dramatic
interpretation of the duet from Ma-
dame Butterfly was proof of their ver-
satility, which, witht'theirtcharm of
manner, w~on for them the hearty
braise of a delighted audience.A i

becoming worried over the recent in'

coming in constantly increasing num-
bers to satisfy the Britishers' crave for'
the modern dance. Musicians unionai

to keep down the invasion.

"The Woman With Masks" is a por-

her face is a third mask. This paint-

Iacovleff's individual, crisp, taffeta-
like quality of the brush. The lofty,
serene faces with their staring bluej
eyes are disturbing. Everything is
elongated showing the influence of El

Spain.

A student life membership costs $50,
payable in five annual payments of $10
each, the first to be reduced to $6 if
made before Dec. 1 of the last year of
his residence upon the campus. After
one year's time following graduation
a life membership costs $100 which
may be made in five annual $20 pay'
ments.
The Union now has approximately
22,000 life members. The large num-
ber of members is due to some ex-
tent to the fact that alumni realize
that the Union is an effective bond
between them and the University, says
the Committee in charge of the cam-
paign. The drive is the most effective
way of paying off the $350,000 which
is still owed on the building.
