Chc1in Group, Exhibiting Paderews-
kis Emotional Playing, Wins
Greatest Favor
(By Edgar H. Ailes)
Thirty years ago this month Ignace
Jan Paderewski first thrilled Ann Ar-
bor with the magic of his art. Dur-
ing that long interval, he has appear-
ed here twice in recitals which are
still cherished in the memory of all
heard them. Last night the great
Polish pianist's return was the oc-
casion for one of the most spontane-
ous and impressive ovations ever ac-
corded a visiting celebrity. More
than 5,000 persons crowded Hill aud-
itorium, all eager to hear and pay
tribute to one of the supreme musi-
clans of this generation.
