"PLEASE DO NOT DRINK"
According to a dispatch in the New
York Times, Wesleyan university, lo
cated in Middletown, Conn., has
"deemed the difficulties pertaining to
the' enforcement of the liquor laws of
enough importance to be one of the
principal subjects of a special notice
sent to all alumni regarding the ap
proaching installation of its new
President, Dr. James Lukens Mc-
Conaughy."
The letter is said to urge the co-
operation of the alumni in the uphold-.
ing of the prohibition laws, not only
for the effect that violations might
have upon themelves and the under.
graduate body, but also for the effect
upon the visitors who will be pres-
ent at the ceremony.
There is something degrading in
the fact that an American college
feels calle$ upon to directly request
it, alumni 'bdy to observe the laws
of the nation while on the campus,
and especially at the installation of

a new president. Are the alumni so
childish, so thoughtless, so degener-
ate that their alma mater cannot trust
matter to theft discretion? Or is it
that the aitliriTies have failed to re-
alize that ever students may grow up
t' he respectable and respected citi-
zens, regardl ess of their activities
during college days.
By her action, Wesleyan has reveal-
ed within her relf and alumni body a

THE SIXTH MAY FESTIVAL
('ON('EWf
A review, by Robert Henderson.
There were six soloists in the per-
formance of "La Gioconda" last eve-
ning, and four of them. Mario Cham-
lee, Frances Peralta, Kathryn Meisle
and Henri Scott, are native-born
Americans along with the whacking

"La Giocondo," as far as I know, is
nearly the limit in melodramatics; no
opera, certainly, has more blood and
bombast, and nonce, save "La FlozaF
del Destino," ends more grandl
tragicly. It is Sardoodledum trans-
lated into music; sheer, unabashed
theatre. Such pieces stand for and
are the operatic tradition, big and
maginifcent and pure lalapalooza.
The story stamps through a tale of

is a collosal piece of overwhelming
humbug . . . wonderful in its pomp-
ous manner!
* * *
The soloists last evening were cast
to type quite unequalled for the Fes-
tival since the days of Matzenauer,
Martinelli and Amato. Of them all,
Augusta Lensha, of course, was the
greatest singer and artist.s here
was something very solid and heroic
in all her work. especially her mar-
vellous aria in Act III. Frances Per-
alta, incidentally, calmly squashed
the burst of applause she deserved by
jumping into her own aria before she
had even received the conductor's
signal-these clawing artists!
F Mr. Ballester, carrying the major
role of Barnaba; also did a remarkable
piece of work. His voice is highly
stacatto, fiery and resonant. Even
more, he is a very great singing-
actor with every emotion registered
in the pantomime of his face.
The converse, however, the annoy-
ing habit of discarding his character
for His individual personality, often
marred Mr. Chamlee's godly lyric
voice.Conmonly he stands as another
of the shouting, sobhing Italians, but
for all1 the sentiment it is a marvel-
'ous- tethnique: liquid and langorous,
cogent, incomparably beautiful.
Miss Meisle in her turn was extra-
ordinarily effective with a surprising,
powerful contralto, deep and luster-
ons. Similarly, Henri Scott--of the
oddly henna hair-and Frances Per-
alta were the typical mesdames et
messieurs of opera, flowering i the
expansive warmth of the eternalF
grand manner, dignified and com-
manding.
Finally, there is Earl Moore who is
becoming fully adept in his conduct-
irig and is already a certain master
in choral work. "La Gioconda" show-
ed every ear-mark of his patience and
skill; more, the entire Festival moved
with a finish and ease made possible
only through his constant, detailed
foresight.

THE FIFTH )TAY FESTIVAL
CONCERT
A review, by Robert Ramsay.
Before the splendor of La Gioconda
and the tremendous dramatic appeal
of that tuneful opera, before the .x-
citement of the discovery of the new
and very great voice of Augusta
Lenska, the afternoon fades, and j
recollection fastens on one thing'
alone, Frederick Stock with his mnagic
baton. Frederick Stock and Beetho'
ven; Beethoven and Frederick Stock.
The two do not usually assroiate
themselves; Stock's glory does not lie
in Beethoven, but in Wagner, where
the majestic sweep of the splendid
tonal passages of the great German
find instant response in the Teuton
heart of the conductor. He is a fig-
ure, defying description, dominating
everything with impressive strength;
his genius burns in his eyes, breathes
in his haggard distented nostrils,
radiates from his electrifying pres-
ence, captivates the imagination. Ile
is superbly suave infinitely dignified.
The Beethoven Fifth Symphony is
the biggest thing undertaken by Fred-
erick Stock this year, if one excepts
f the Brahms symphony given the night
before last. It is one of the greatest
symphonies ever written, unmarred
by the cheapness that usually taints
Beethoven. Theme after theme is giv-
en out in immense beauty, and finally
joins in essential unity and perfec-
tion. The second movement is the
favorite, developing in measured
statliness to majeste grandeur whch
Frederick Stock was able to produce
in all its beauty.
