"Dollar and cent valuations placed
upon higher education are necessari-
ly made for the most part upon sup-
erficial grounds," Prof. J. B. Edmon-
son of the School of Education be-
lieves. Few such estimates take into
{ account native ability which must be
| present for success in the business
"College education has a number of
unreckoned values," he declared. "A
minimum amount of college work is
prerequisite to professional- training.
Further, higher education fits a man
for leadership in his community by
making him certain of hs own abili--
ties; he has no inferiority complex
by the time he has been granted a
.d egree.
"But the degree is often misunder-
stood," Professor Edmonson said, "to
constitute a good in itself; it is look-
ed upon as proof that certain quali-
ties are unnecessary to its holder. Oi
the contrary, stability, industry, and
friendliness are among the factors
which go to make the educated as,
well, as the uneducated men success-
ful. Education simply increases those
capacities which are already present:
it cannot capitalize for the individual
something that he has not."

MARIA ,JEIRITZA, the renowned Viennese operatic, coloratura
soprano, startled the American concert going public two years ago
when she made her New York debut with the Metropolitan Opera
Company. As often as she appears, and her schedule is heavy, this
great music house is packed to capacity and she is the recipient of a
thunderous ovation. Her name and reputation have spread like
magic and laymen as well as music lovers have spared no pains in
their efforts to hear and see this mrvelous woman. The limited
number of concert engagements which she is able to accept just
before the opera season opens are looked upon as among the season's
most important artistic events.

ALFRED)-CORTOT is a stupendous pianist whose artistry has
received the most favorable commendation throughout the music
world. His tours of America and elsewhere have set standards such
as to place him among the relatively few great players of the day.
Clear-cut and dynamic in character his performances are always
works of art.
Cortot is solid, substantial and permanent. His offerings rep
resent the best in the full sense of the word.

SOPHIE BRASLAU is a distinct asset to American musicianship.
She has won many laurels both in opera and in recital Each season
a seen her star ascend until she obtained a place among the few
leading contraltos.
She possesses a glorious voice of a velvety quality and of wide
range; her deep tones being comparable to those of Schumann-Heink
in her best days. She is typically American, well poised and attract-
ive personally.
