A review, by Robert J. Gessner
There are certain times when we
are compelled to forgive the students
of the School of Music for all the
sonorous belches and other compli-
cations they emit from the basement
windows of their practice studios.
And such times are when they pr-
sent recitals of the quality of the one
given yesterday afternoon in Hill
auditorium on Theodore Dubois' clas-
sic, "The Seven Last Words of Christ."
The ability of the soloists along with
the unity and oneness of the chorus
and the orchestra were of the best
grade heard in a student recital dur-
ing the past few years. We even must
forgive Roy Langham for what he
does over at Mimes, in lieu of what he
produced yesterday. It can be said
of Langham that as a student conduc-
tor, presenting a pure musical pro-
gramn, he is exceptional, and much of
the success of yesterday's perform-
ance lies at the tip of his baton.
Of the recital as a whole nothing
detrimental can be said, but in re-
gar to the three soloists a few criti-
cisms are warrtnted. The soprano,
Carolyn Slepicka,. has beautiful tone
quality and a technic that is passa-
ble, but she sadly lacks power. It
seems that she has placed her tones
at a premium for the sake of effect,
rather than balancing her technic for
the, sake of the music. However,
Stewart Churchill, a tenor, success-
fully intertwined the qualities of his
voice to give us the most outstand-
ing singing of the afternoon., He
has power and at times he uses it
intelligently, but too sparingly. When
he sang we wene aware that he could
have gone further, but was too timid
to try. Yet, I suppose, it is better
to do what he did, rather than take
the awful chance of forcing the voice.
But just th'e same we were left some-
what unsatisfied, because we were
aware . of his potentialities. Otto
Brown, a baritone, has the sweetest
voice of them all and also the soft-
est. His weakness, too, lies not in the
tone quality but in what he does with
that quality. It is odd that the three
soloists should be mutual in their
weaknesses, but not until they have
overcome this fault will they be able
to sing with the greatest possible

Alice Case, Dor Legg Helen Gould,

Dear Jeb:
Well the Law grades for the first,
semester are out only eight weeks
after exams. The Law Faculty cer-
tainly are doing their best to teach
the boys the value of delay in legal
procedure by practical examples.
I think "The Chancellor" deserves
special mention. For two semesters
he teaches us one of the main ad-
vantages of Equity is its speed and!
then Equity delays our grades three
full weeks.
