is one of the few representatives of
that virtuoso school of piano playing
which came into vogue in the latter
days of Liszt and Rubinstein.
Though his musical education be-
gan later in life than that of many ar-
tists, he soon came to rank with the
master class in the conservatory where
he studied. When only seventeen
years old, he graduated with highest
honors, and later won the Rubinstein
prize in Berlin, in a pianistic contest
with thirty-two other competitors.
Up to the time of the war his ap-
pearances both in America and on the
continent were consistently success-
ful. He returned to this country in
1919, and since has toured the prin-1
cipal cities, playing in recitals and as

chestras. Mr. Lhevinne plays both so-

You can not work one day and lay off the next and hope to
succeed in your business, nor can you advertise one week and
not the next and hope to get results.
It is consistent advertising that pays, and consistent advertising
means increased advertising. There is no successful business
house whose records do not show a yearly increase in ad-
vertising with a corresponding increase in sales.
THE MICHIGAN DAILY can help you get results from
the proper use of advertising space as it has helped many Ann
Arbor firms. One Ann Arbor firm has within the last three
years increased its advertising six fold, and will no doubt in-
crease it again next year. This firm has been shown that
