Memorial Number Will Open Program;
Selections From Vrieg And
Beethoven Included
Guy Meier, Lee Pattison, and Arthur
Shattuck, widely known American
pianists, will appear tomorrow even-
ing in Hill auditorium with the De-
troit symphony orchestra, playing se-
lections upon three pianos. Extensive
tours have been made throughout the
leading cities of America by Mr. Maier
and Mr. Pattison, who have been con-
sidered outstanding artists bycritics
The program will be opened with a
memorial to the late President Marion
L. Burton, the funeral music from
Wagner's "Gotteramerdung." The
popular Peer Gynt suite from Grieg
will ,also be offered, in additon to a
Beethoven symphony, and concertos
from Bach and Liszt.
Quotations from the Detroit Free
Press make the following comments
upon a recent Maier-Pattison concert
given in Orchestra hall. "Mr. Maier
and Mr. Pattison have set a distinct
standard in their ensemble work. Not
only is their extraordinary unanimity
so far as technical matters are con-
cerned most remarkable, but sensative
to each other's thought and aesthetic
side they have developed a perfection
and brilliance of performance which
would seem unattainable. The two.
grand pianos facing each other are
under their hands but one superb in-
strument. They present numbers of
fine contrast, the delicacy and quaint
charm of the Bach' work standing out
against the' more spirited, colorful
Liszt composition. The latter has
been especially arranged and orches-
trated by Mr. Pattison and the power
and exhilaration of the reading given
it brought a great demonstration from
the audience."
These three artists have all been
heard previously in Ann Arbor, and
have favorably impressed the popu-
lace as well as the press.!
Graduates of the University have
taken leading positions in the profes-
sorial field over the entire country,
according to Dean John Effinger of
the literary college. Princeton uni-
versity is one of the foremost exam-
ples of this, he believes.
Among the leaders in the various
scholastic fields there, are found six'
graduates of Michigan. Christian
Gauss, '99, is head of the Romance
language department and dean-elect
of the school. Professor Gauss was
born in this city and was also an in-
structor in the University for several
Two brothers, Duane R. and Donald
C. Stuart, both graduates of this insti-
tution, also hold professorships there.
Duane R. Stuart, '96, is a professor in
the Latin department, having former-
ly alsoserved as an assistant profes-
sor here. Donald C. Stuart, '03, is a
professor of dramatic literature at
that college.
Charles R Morey, '99, is a professor
of art and archaeology there while
Edward S. Corwin, '00 is a professor

of jurisprudence. When the latter
graduated from Michigan he was
president of his class, being first cal-
led to Princeton by Woodrow Wilson
in 1905.
Another of the leading Michigan
names on the Princeton faculty list is
that of Frank H. Dixon, '92, professor
of economics. He served here as as-
sistant professor of political economy
from 1897 to 1898.

"But beyond this it is felt that as

dents shoulder to shoulder, flanked
both sides of the streets leading from
the Burton home to the final resting
place of the late President in For-
est Hill cemetery.
Students who daily crossed the
campus in high spirits stood with un-
covered heads as the cortege passed.
Many times had some of these stu-
dents stood with uncovered heads
while he had passed. But yesterday,
for the last time, with grieving hearts
and saddened faces, they came to hon-
or him who came nearest fulfilling
their ideal of a man.
After the cortege had passed, the
line was broken, and in groups of
twos and threes they slowly wandered
away, dazed by the realization that
they had paid their last respects to
Marion LeRoy Burton.
Few of the mourners who witnessed
the funeral procession as it left the
Burton residence yesterday realized
that for a brief moment a large hu-
man cross was formed, with the hon-
orary pallbearers and the casket form-.
ing the two ends of the cross section,
extending from the steps of the resi-
dence to the hearse, and the line of
friends and former associates formed
along the sidewalk of South Univers-
ity avenue representing the support-
ing staff of the cross.
As the casket was lifted to the I
shoulders of the eight student pll-
bearers, the entire procession paused
for a moment, making this last and
highest tribute that can be paid toJ

for the position should write an ap-

anaugh, '27I4, president of the. Union
or leave it at the main desk.
A committee composed of the exe-
cutive council of the Union will act
as judges and choose one of the com-
peting orchestras to play at the Union
for the rest of the year. Orchestras
which desire to play before the judges
should be prepared to give an exhibi-
tion of their music some time ater
7:30 o'clock Tuesday evening., Or-
chestras should have from seven Io
nine pieces in order that sufficient
volume be produced for the large ball-
room. The orchestra which has play-
ed at the dances so far this year will
be one of the competitors.
The organization chosen by the
committee will start playing the reg-
ular dance next Friday night.
Because of several complaints turn-

fire ordinances to smoke in theatres
and students are warned to refrain

from lighting their pipes and cigar-

Under skies of leaden gray, while all nature seemed to halt its rest-
less motion, the earthly remains of President Marion LeRoy Burton were
laid to rest yesterday. Supported by her two children, Paul and Jane, the
bereaved widow-stood with bowed head as the last words of the beautifully
simple ceremony were spoken over the bier of her husband.
At the house which sheltered the President during his long illness
were gathered those who had known him best-those whose association
with the great man had brought them to love him. Sober, drawn faces

marked with a grief too poignant for

Groesbeck, Welsh, Special Committee
From State Congress, Regents
Present for Ceremony.
Many of the prominent men of the
state who attended the funeral serv-
ices of President Marion L. Burton
gathered for a luncheon at the Union
preceding the ceremony. Among these
were Gov. Alex J. Groesbeck and
Lieut.-Gov. Welsh who motored from
Detroit with George Haggerty, Wayne
county road commissioner. Mr. Welsh
came from his home in Grand Rapids
to Detroit yesterday morning.
Seven men from the state senate
drove from Lansing this morning.
These were Senators Frank P. Bohn
of Newberry, Burney Brower of Jack-
son, George Hunter of St. Johns,
Frank L. Young of Lansing, Harvey
Penney of Saginaw, Alonzo B. Green
of Hillman, and Eliza B. Howarth of
Royal Oak. These men made up the
special committee appointed by the
senate to represent that body officially
at the services.
Seven men also attended the lunch-
eon representing the lower house.
They were: Reps. Loomis K. Preston
of St. Joseph, Milton R. Palmer ;o1

As the last words of the impressive
benediction which concluded the ser-
vice at the house died away, the
mourners rose, and with welling
hearts moved silently from the house.
There was no music; no solemn fun-
eral strains sounded as the casket
bearing the body of President Burton
was lifted and borne out through the
door within hte view of the thousands
who were gathered in respectful sor-
row before the house.
As the casket was lifted to the
shoulders of the student pallbearers
the chimes of Michigan tolled the half
hour, sounding a fitting requiem for
the man whose living ears they had
so often delighted.
The rain had stopped, and with it
every vestige of breeze as the pall-
bearers moved down the walk between
the lines formed by the honorary
pallbearers and members of the Leg-
islative committee. Overhead from
their bare branches the trees which
have looked down upon entering and
leaving Presidents of the University
since 1840 bowed in last farewell upon
the casket which bore the body of
Michigan's greatest President to its
last resting place.
The gray arch of the sky formed a
perfect canopy-the tinge of mourn-
ing black softly miked with the white
promise of the future in a softly
blended tint-colorless, but with the
hope of color.
Between rows of students standing
bareheaded on the curbs, the line of
cars bearing the mourners to the
cemetery moved slowly away from the
house. Faces stamped with sorrow
showed through the windows of the
cars, and the recognized loss to the
University was plain to be seen on
the faces of those who lined the route.
Up, beneath the murmuring ever-
greens which stirred softly in a new-
risen breeze, up along the winding
road into the cemetery the line mov-
ed. Up, until the topmost point was
reached; and there stopped. The cas-
ket was laid upon the bronze plat-
form, banked with floral tributes. The
bereaved family moved forward, stand-
ing firmly, although visibly shaken,
with bowed heads while the last words
were spoken.
As silence fell again, they turned,
and were escorted back to their car.
Quietly the crowd dispersed, going
their several ways mute, and yet feel-
ing to the full the hope promised in
the simple words. It was over. The
first of Michigan's Presidents to give
his life in her service lay at rest to
watch from above the consummation

and dreams for the greatness of

quested that a copy of it be given him
to keep. The quotation was: "Thou
dost write in characters too large for
our understanding, who see but brok-

With the stroke of 2 o'clock the
voice of the Reverend Douglas rose in
the opening words of the burial ser-
vice. Strong and with beautiful fer-
vor, his voice carried the solemn
words of comfort and hope to the
group who sat with bowed heads in
dry-eyed grief at the passing of their
friend and leader.
"I am the ressurection and the Life,
saith the Lord." The words broke
the silence with deep sonorous pow-
er. "He that believeth in Me, though
