Two Aiican artists of exception-
a] note, Id ~a Ponselle ;and Lawrence
Tibbett, are expected to be numbered
among the more acclaimed attractions
of the 34th annual May Festival,
' which wll wbe held in Hill1 auditor-
lum May 18, 19, 20, andi 21. The first,
Ponselle, has 'the greater reputation
among the musical pu~blic, but the lat-
ter has sprung into press notices
Inore recently through his achieve-
inents with the Metropolitan Opera
Notice has already been taken by
cri tics and others interested, of the
*colsiderable number of American art-
' fists' who go to make up this year's
series of programns. This, according to
Earl, V. Moore, director of the test-
ival, is clue to no movement oi the
part of the authorities to nationalize
the festival, but wherever ther wa
a choice 'between an #Americn 'and a
Toreign artist of equal ability the
former was selected.
"It is, rather a rare thing to fnd
a series of programs, 1Icluding: so
many artists and numbers as dloes
the May Festival, cmposed to such,
a great extent of American talent,"
stated Mr. Moore. "This year' pro-
grim does nat follow an exceptionally
modern trend, either."
LawrnceTibbett, baritone, made a
profound sensation three years ao
tbrougli his' singing of the role ' of
"I+ord" in "Falstaff". His 'rise to pop-
ular 'favor was almost overnight. He
was heard inl AnnArbor in Jty'of the
following dear, singing the role fof
"Escamiilio" in "Carmen". He is a
i!'alifornian' by birth.
Rosa Ponselle is a prima donna so-
prano of the Metropolitan company.

Carrnes On Traditions
Ponselle has been praised'by critics'
or being the only one to faithfully
carry on the traditions etalihed y
such singers as Eames, Mela and
Sembrich. Her last role to gain uni-
versal appreciation was that of last
year in "La Vestale". She created the
role herself, and her acting won .p-
proval as well as her singing. "La
Vetale" was considered to bie the
high spot of last year's season.
