Traditional Class Rlvalry Threatens
When Graduating Stwlents End
Formal Hareli
Graduating students in the swing-
out ceremonies, the opening of gradu-
ating activities, yesterday afternoon
in Hill auditorium, were urged to be
open-minded in viewing questions of
the world, and to look upon life from

licago Symphony Orchestra Of 70,
Choral Union And Glee Club
To Appear On Program
Brilliant operatic stars of first
magnitude, oratio singers, pianists,
violinists, and Chicago Symphony or-
chestra of 70 players, the University
Choral union of 300 singers, the Uni-
versity glee club, five great conduc-
tors wielding their batons for the de-
light of listeners, will assemble here
next week for the thirty-fifth Annual
May Festival to be held in Hill audi-
torium May 16, 17, 18, and 19.
An attempt has been- nade to main-
tain a happy balance between the
old and the new both in regard to
the compositions to be offered, as
well as in the choice of artists for
the occasion. The operatic stars will
provide pyrotechnics of a spectacu-
lar nature Their efforts will be sup-
plemented by the instrumental part.
choruses, and orchestra, all parts be-
ing woven together, and their efforts
evaluated and balanced under the
general musical direction o Earl V.
Moore of the School of Music.
Leonora Corona, Leone Krause, Ma-
rie Montana, Marion Telva, Tudor Da-
vies, Mario Basiola, Raymond Koch,
and Benn Rabinof are some of the
artists new to Ann Arbor who will
appear on the programs, whileamong
the old favorites there will be Mar-
garet Matzenauer, Merle Alcock, Paul
Althouse, Chase Baromeo, Percy
Grainger, and Palmer Christian.
Corona Famed In Italy
Leonora Corona attained her first
great fame as a singer of any nation-
al importance in Italy, where she
went after having been recognized in
Texas, where she was born, as an ex-
ceptional singer. Her first appearance
in the Metropolitan Opera House in
New York under the famous director
Gattio Gasazza, brought forth such
acclaim that within a short time she
had been favored with a contract
calling for fabulous sum's for her ap-
Leona Kruse, likewise first won
great note in foreign circles, for in
Berlin and Munich she rose to the
highest pinnacle of operatt ;fame
when a director of the Chicago Civic
Opera company declared that he had
"discovered" her in Europe. She will
sing the role of "ailda" in which she
is said to particularly excell. Poise,
presence, and general artistic make-
up, critics say, have combined to fit
her particularly for the strenuouis
work of the part.
Among the others who will appear
here is Marion Telva, a leading con-
tralto of the Metropolitan Opera Com-
pany, who will make her Ann Arbor
debut in the role of Ammeris. She
has been looked upon as one of the
outstanding members of the Opera
company with which she is identified,
and it is seldom that she leaves the
company for outside engagements.
Merle Alcock To Return
Merle Alcock was in Ann Arbor
several years ago in a minor role at
the very beginning of her public ca-
reer, but has since risen in the ranks
of the Metropolitan company as have
many other ambitious young singers.
Her contribution to the May Festiv-
al will consist in playing opposite
Marie Montana as the contralto of
"St. Francis of Assisi."
Recognized as one of the leading
baritones of the Metropolitan Opera
company, Marie Basiola, is an Italian
of long musical tradition, his singing
is said to be characterized by a sen-
sibility of balance and the evaluation
of all factors that has won for him
the respect and esteem of the world's
great critics. His work here will be
of the same type as was the work of
the famed Pasquales Amato, who has
often pleased audiences here in the

here, his activities at the University

pupil of Theodore Harrison, his day's

municipal opera participation, has
achieved a repu~tation as perhaps one

day. He has been acclaimed in Italy,
and all over the United States where
he has been heard. Two performance's

tribution when he will sing in "St
