MAY 20 TO 23
Array of Artists Procured Includes
Lawjence Tibbett, Noted
American Baritone
Variety is the keynote of the May
festival program which is to be pre-
sented on May 20 to 23 inclusive in
Hill auditorium. An opera, Pon-
chielli's "La Gioconda", threesym -
phonies, by Schumann, Brahms,
Tchaikovsky, and Rachmaninoff's
"The Bells", a musical setting of the
poem by Edgar Allen Poe, are the
outstanding compositions. In addi-
tion there will be orchestral compo-
sitions by Beethoven, Bach, Stauss,
and Wagner. Another unusual or-
chestral work will be Deems Taylor's
Suite, "Through the Looking Glass,"
which was performed in Ann Arbor
several years ago by the New York
Chamber Music society. Since that
time it has been scored for a full or-
chestra by the composer and has been
chosen to represent the American
The array of artists which have
been procured includes many of the
leading virtuoses who have appeared
in America. Particular interest has
been aroused by the addition of Law-
rence Tibbett, the American Baritone,
who was accorded one of the greatest
ovations that any singer has received
in- the Metropolitan Opera house, in'
his appearance as "Ford" in "Fal -
staff." Tibbett is a native of Califor-'
nia and although trained entirely in
Anmerica he has had the benefit of
some of the best instruction that
Europe has to offer.
Ossip Gabrilowitsch, who is partic-
ularly well known in this vicinity as
the conductor of the Detroit Sym-
phony orchestra, istone of the most
popular pianists in the present mus -
cal world. In his recent concert trip
in Europe he received a tremendous
ovation, and was generally conceded
a rank among tire foremost pianists
of the time. Although he conducts
the Detroit orchestra, he continues to
devote much of his time to concert
Mischa Ebdan, the violinist, is well
known and there is little which can
be said of him that is not already
known to most of the musical public.
He has appeared several times beforef
on May festival programs, and his
popularity caused him to be included
this season. This will mark his first
appearance with an orchestra in!
these concerts however. There are a
number of other equally famous ar-
tists who are as well known as
those mentioned. Among them. are!
Mario Chamlee the tenor, a member
of the Metropolitan Opera company,
Vincente Ballester, Frances Peralta,
Augusta Lenska, and Rh'ys Morgan.
"Two Aunts and a Photo" and 'The
Mysterious Suitcase" will be presented
by the Evangelical student club at
8:30 o'clock tonight in Bethlehem
church. The production is given in
conjunction with the monthly social
staged by the organization. "Two
Aunts and a Photo," a one act com-
edy, will be given by the girls of the
group. As well as the playlet, "The
Mysterious Suitcase," the male stu-
dents will present several dialogues
and a minstrel entertainment consist-
ing of Southern songs. Arnold Bach-,

tee in charge of the program.
Cheating Results S
In 11 Suspensions

Cincinnati, Ohio April 22.-Eleven
Universiyt of Cincinnati students,
many of them leaders in campus af-
fairs, have recently been suspended
for cheating in examinations, it wasi
learned today. The announcement
was made by university officials at a
student mass meeting called for dis-
cussion of the adoption of the "honor
system" in the University.
Prevalence of cheating was gener-
ally admitted by the studentsten-
gaged in the discussion, but there
was diversity of opinion as to
whether inauguration of an "honor
system" would prove effective. A
vote of liberal arts students will be
taken next week.

Edouard Herriot, former premier was
elected to the coveted presidency of
