Phenomenal Treenique, Seintillating
Brilliancy, Exquisite Clarity
Mark Performance
(By Edgar H. Adies)
The pianoforte recital given last
night in Hill auditorium by Alfred
Cortot marked the Ann Arbor debut of
that distinguished French artist and
afforded one of the finest lxhibitions
of pianistic art ever heard here. The
audience was notably appreciative,
and was as large as could be expect-
ed in view of such distractions as the
Michigan Opera premiere and the in-
clement weather.
Unsurpassed Here
Local concertgoers who have long
followed Ann Arbor nusical events
must have sought vainy to recall any-
thing in their experience surpassing
Cortot's recital. From the first notes
of Vivaldi's "Conceto da Camera"
through a program of satisfying va- 1
riety, lie revealed himself to be a{
virtuoso of prodigious attainments.
Endowed with an all-conquering tech-
nical equipment, this side of his art
never obtruded itself tat the expense
of the musical. His touch is mascu-
line, brilliantly clear and infinitely
poetic. In the forte passages his vig-f
or is tremendous, his pianissimos haveI
the irridescent grace and precision of
de Pachmann, while his management1
of tone coloring is absolutely impec-
cable. An intellectual breadth and a
keen emotional, sense co-ordinate
these faculties in the most convincing
exposition of i musical content we
have ever heard..
Chopin's set of 24 preludes, Op., 28,
was the outstanding feature of the
program. Each of these exquisitely
beautiful and) endlessly varied frag-
ments is compQlte in itsolf, but togeth-
er they form a unity of enchanting
loveliness. Cdrtot played them in-
comparably, infusng into each his
powerful personality, yet maintaining
perfectly the spirit in which they were
conceived. His successhwas conspicu-
ous in readings of the "raindrops"I
prelude, No. 6; in the beautiful No. 14
which reminds us of f/3 finale to the
"Funeral March" sonata; inNo. 15,,
the most beautiful of all, with its de-
lihtfulycontrasted portions in D ma-F
jor and C sharp; and in No. 21 with its
peculiar quavering figure and smooth

Faculty Joins With Great Majority of
Students to Repudiate
Sunday Disorders
Losses sustained by local theaters
in the disorders of Sunday night of
last week were practically all ascer-,
tained last night, preliminary to the
making of an all-University re-im-
bursement for the damages which re-
sulted. Although not all of the bills
for the property which was destroyed
have been turned in, it is expected
that the final figures will be available
by noon today. The check has been
carefully made, and the idea of beingI
fair to the students and faculty of
the University, and to the theater
owners alike, has prevailed.
Disorders Deplored
The desire to make the .reparation
an all-University affair assumed that
proportion Saturday when individual
members of the faculty asked that'
hey be given an opportunity to share
n the offer of reparation. They "feel
a joint responsibility of the entire
University for the regrettable action
ast Sunday night of some of our
members", according to the state-
ment made.
With practically unanimity, the
campus expresses its condemnation of1
he rowdy acts of a small minority.,
That the University has been thrown
nto a bad light in the eyes of other
schools and with the people of the
state is said to be responsible for the
widespread desire of students and fac-
ulty to clear Michigan's name. It is
elt that a whole-hearted offer of re-
paration to the theater owners for
heir losses will .demonstrate eon-,
clusively-that the. actions of, a smell

Junior Hop will be given out from

fifty tickets will be sold for this

To Lionel Ames, '24, the leading
