TUESDAY, MAY 11, 1926
Night Editor-SMITH H. GADY, JR.
Each summer almost 500 boys, se-
lected from the poor and needy of De-
troit, Ann Arbor, and nearby towns,;
are given a new chance in life-a
(:hance to spend a few weeks out in
the fir and the szunshine, with good
food and healthy surroundings,
through the Fresh Air camp operated
by the Student Christian association.
The cost amounts ito a dollar a day
for each boy-and there is no invest-
ment which shows such quick and
large returns.
These summer outings are made
possible by a tag day on the campus,
combined with subscriptions obtained
from those who have been associated
in the work and appreciate its great
value. Today the University will be
given an opportunity to aid in supply-
ing the money that will take a few
American youngsters who have been{
handicapped by a winter in the squab-
for of the city's poorer sections out1
in the country and give them a bit of
encouragement-an opportunity to de-{
velop int Teal assets in American
life. Work of this kind cannot be
measured in dollars and cents. -
Of all the drives for funds con-
ducted on the campus, this financing
of the Fresh Air camp is the most
worthy. The small quota desired by
the Student Christian association
sholuld be easily oversubscribed. Each
dollar means another day for another
undernourished boy; the price is1

A review, by Robert Henderson.
it is easy not to appreciate the ex-
traordinary pianoforte department
that the UniversitySchool of Music
has in such musicians as Guy Maer,
Mr. Lockwood, Andrew Haigh, Mrs.
Okkelberg and Mrs. Rhead. The
course in Russian music given during K
the last semester and covering almost
the entire literature has been uniqueh
in itself: it shows a faculty that
through recitals and constant study
will not let itself be ground into the
lack-lustre rut of the professor too
weary or too fearful to polish his own
talent with the criticism of audiences.'
And of this group-excepting, of
course, Mr. Maier-none has made
more consistent progress nor has
more successfully linked sheer tech-
nique with a lyric poetic fire than
Mrs. Okkelberg. Her appearances dur-
ing the last two seasons in Hill audi-
torium and with the Matinee Musicale
have shown constant growth, and at
the recital Sunday afternoon her in-
terpretation of the Arensky Trio in D
minor was filled with a confidence and
assurance that quite overshadowed,
even in the accompaniment passages,
the work of the violin and 'cello.
The Trio is a striking composition,
full of color, deep highlights and a
melancholy beauty that is tradition-
ally Slavic. Its movements are in a1
classic mould, but the whole tempo
and character of the performance held
and nearly fascinated an audience
that only occasionally allowed its
thoughts to stray to the same day a
year ago when Mr. Eddie Guest was
singing his bashful decalog to the
glory of mothers and babies' panties
on the back-yard line . . . MIirs. Ok-
kelberg impregnated the piece with a
full sweeping rhythm that caught the
other players, especially Miss Lart-
hard, in its rich and grateful har-
The later half of the program con-
sisted of selections from the Russian
liturgy sung by a special chorus un-
der the direction of Palmer Christian.
The choir contained several unusual
voices, including, I believe, Mrs. Grey
of Ypsilanti, and an Oriental student
in the tenor section. Mr. Christian's
training showed a fine feeling for
contrast and for decisive effects, and
three of the numbers sung without
accompaniment, gave the chorus an
opportunity to introduce into their
interpretation all the primitive, pagan
flavor of the Greek church, the almost
ungodly ecstacy and beauty of the
Russian ritual.
Mr. Christian's opening numbers on
the organ were hardly as fortunate.
There is in his work a certain, recur-
ring impression of muddiness, as
though too many paws were at work-.
due, no doubt, to the sad decay cf his
instrument. The first piece was a
halting performance of the Tschai-
kowsky Marche Slave, and the second

candles . . . oh, my priests-ah, my

In the year 1923, the dramatic activi-
t ics upon the campus consisted of: a
lasques .production in Hill auditori-
um, entitled "A Thousand Years Ago,"
which was quite elaborate and color-{
ftl, but had little real theater; two orI
three smaller programs of one-act
plays, given in Sarah Caswell Angell
:all, which drew some hundred peo-{
ple each, and consisted of sincere but
dcicdedly amateurish productions,
with home-uiade sets and costumes

the Comedy Club procuction of "Cap-
