The School of Music of the University of Michi-
gan, Charles A. Sink, President, and Earl V. Moore
Musical Director, is planning a May Festival on even
greater proportions than those in preceding days, ac-
cording to tentative plans which have just been re-
leased. The Festival which will mark the Thirty-
Ninth consecutive event, will take place on Wednes-
day, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 18, 19, 20
and 21, and will consist of four evening programs
with matinees on the afternoons of Friday and Sat-
urday. Earl V. Moore will be the Musical Director
while'Frederick A. Stock, will wield the baton over
the orchestral programs with Eric DeLamarter assist-
ant. The Children's Chorus, will be led by Juva N
The University Choral Union, will sing in com-
memoration of Haydn's 200th anniversary, the "Cre-
ation" and will also perform Strawinsky's very at-
tractive work, entitled "The Psalms." The Choral
Fantasie by Gustav Holst will be provided with the
composer serving as guest conductor. Mr. Holst was
brought to America eight years ago by the Univer-
sity Musical Society, as guest conductor, at which
time a number of his works were performed.
The outstanding choral work will be the American
premiere of the monumental Russian opera,* "The
Legende of Kitej" by Rimsky-Korsakoff. This work
published a number of years ago, has not been per-
formed in America. It has been given in Paris, and
possibly in other European centers. Emil Cooper,
one of the conductors of the Chicago Civic Opera
Association personally conducted it in both opera
and concert form at his American premiere. The
work will be given in English, the translation now
being prepared by Lila Pargment, talented linguist
wife of Professor Michael Pargment, of the civision
of French in the University of Michigan.
Negotiations are pending for the engagements of
a list of distinguished soloists, both vocal and instru-
mental, which will compare in importance and inter-
est with the choral works announced and with the
great casts which have characterized Ann Arbor
Festivals in seasons past.

THIRTEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS a bomb.
Walking through the Arcade yesterday after-
noon our attention was called to an anti-war league
poster bearing these words. The message they in-
sinuated was forcefully, dismally a propos. Ten
minutes before we had been conversing with the
secretary to the dean on the possibility of obtain-
ing a loan from the University to cover part of our
next semester's expenses. We had been informed
that the loan committee, so willing to aid deserv-1
, ing students, was finding itself in an increasingly
difficult situation. It had been called upon heavily.
Something could probably be worked out in out
case, the secretary said, but it would take tirme.
She was glad to file our application. Less than a
tenth of the sum of money that disapp ears in a
puff of smoke-disappears irretrievaly, forever-
every time a large size demolition bomb explodes,
less than a tenth of that sum was a1l that was de-
$I,300 a bomb. We gazed acros the room-at
a group of fellow students, standing in a knot-
forlorn, somehow-about the employmenit direc-
tor's desk. "No," we could just hear a quiet, kind
voice saying, "No, I'm sorry . 1 .Nothing today,
I'm afraid ... Yes, I know ... Won't you come,
again next week? Perhaps then ....."

AT THE MICHIGAN
Love once again triumphs over all for that sac-
charine pair of love-birds, Janet Gaynor and Charles
Farrell, in. their latest talkie, very well mis-titled
The little lass who won her way into the hearts
of film followers with a brilliant performance in
"Seventh Heaven" some years ago is certainly unlike
the demure Scotch miss portrayed by Miss Gaynor
in her latest infliction. Not only does this lady of
the plaid waver from an American to a Scotch accent
and then back to the old United States jargon regu-
larly, but, she is given her usual opportunity to sing,,
this time to the accompaniment of a musical decan-
ter, and the result is "Somebody from Somewhere."
The story of the girl who eludes the immigration
officials. is told in the worst possible manner, being
almost wholly unconvincing, for even if Larry beau-
mont, ably misplayed by Mr. Fhrrell, were the inspira-
tion to all American youth that the Fox lilm corpo-
ration would have made him, still one could not fail
to overlook the sterling qualitied of the Russian
piano-player, Sascha, played by Paul Roulien, a new-
comer to the screen, a gentleman wh? is a very good
piano player, and an equally poor actor. i
Sascha, madly in love with Heather, the name
given to Miss Gaynor to help bolster the failing
Scotch brogue, even gets as far as the wedding cake
before an accident in a polo game proves the eventual
means of uniting "the romantic lovers of the screen."
Allan Bacon, Organist, at the College of the Paci-
fic, will give an organ program in Hill Auditorium.
Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 13, at 4:15 o'clock as guest
organist, taking the place of Palmer Christian. Mr.
Bacon has been head of the organ department at the
College of the Pacific since 1922. Formerly a resident
of St. Louis, he received his early instruction in organ
under Rodney Saylor and Charles Galloway, and was
organist and choir director for four years at Kings-
highway Presbyterian Church of St. Louis. In 1919
yielding to a long felt desire to identify himself witl-
the life and activities of a college, he accepted the
position of head of the piano and organ departments
of Parsons College, Fairfild, Iowa. In 1922 he yield-
ed to the lure of California and accepted the position
of organist at the College of the Pacific, then located
at San Jose but now located since ,1924 at Stockton
With a magnificent four manual Estey organ at his
disposal, his annual series of recitals at the College
Auditorium have attracted the attention of music
lovers and people of culture generally throughout
northern California. Press notices from the leading

The synonymous terms "Vincent's Infection" and
"Trench Mouth" are comonly used to designate a
contagious, ulcerative disease of the mouth, tech-
nically known as "Ulceromembranous Gingivitis."
This disease is most frequently found in the
mouths of people between the ages xof sixteen and
twenty-five, although age is not a limiting factor.
It is prevalent among students, due to crowded living
conditions and the intimate associations of student
life. Being of bacterial origin, it is readily trans-
missible and may be contracted through personal'
contact, eating utensils, drinking cups, towels, etc.
In its more severe manifestations it is not confined
to the mouth and is accompanied by serious systemic
disturbances necessitating confinement to the Infirm-
ary or Hospital.
The onset of the infection is sudden and is char-
acterized by the appearance of a dirty grayish-white
membrane on the surface of the gums or mucous
membrane lining the mouth, which may be distri-
buted throughout or limited to small areas as be-
tween teeth or on 'tonsils. Beneath this membrane
the tissue is infiammed and sensative, often painful,
and bleeds readily. These local manifestations are
usually accompanied by a slight fever, unpleasant
breath, salivation, swollen glands, loss of appetite
This story, says a brief review on
the cove, "catches the long surge,
the color and significance of Amer-
ican life." If this be American color
- and significance, we wish to regis-
ter a devout hope that the Ameri-
can people will begin now on a de -
- liberate process of race suicide.
Miss Ferber, it seems, has an un-
- fortunate tendency to sully even
the fine themes that she selects-
0 in recent years, at least. Witness
s "Show Boat"; even the motion pic-
ture version did better justice to
the theme than did the book. But
when she deliberately chooses a
theme that is unnecessarily sordid,
. the full brilliance of her genius
shines forth; and every word, every
phrase, is bent toward the perfec-
tion of crudity, resulting in a book
that is so thoroughly drab and sor-
did as to be utterly distasteful.
Such a work is "American Beauty."
The title is ironic. There is
American beauty in two delightful
chapters near the beginning, deal-
ing with life in the Connecticut of
the early eighteenth century. Here
we find Orrange Oakes, aristocratic
American pioneer, founding what
promises to be an illustrious line of
American Oakes. But then, with
one of those weird leaps in time
which are so characteristic of the
Ferber novels, Orrange and his re-
markable "Judith amiable consort"
are left far behind; and when the
dust clears away there emerge the
debilitated scions of that grand
family, living in the mouldy rem-
nants of a manse that once was
Then, from 1890-19301 the steady
downfall of the' thinned Oakes
blood and its replacement by a Po-
lish population is traced. It is here
that the sordidness of the book's
treatment is brought out in a man-
ner to "blastthe eyes of the devil."
Whole sections are in incorrigibly
bad taste. A few excerpts will ill-
'"The Polish women kept their
children at the breast until they
were, three or four years old and
running about in the yard... A Po-
lish farm child often was kept at
he breast until it drew blood and
pus for nourishment."
"As she turned the handle of the
door and-entered the unaired room
where the dead woman had lain
for two days, the stench was like
a physical blow."
Whether Miss Ferber's drab style
is purposely adopted or is simply
the best she can do is an open
question. An unfortunate phase,
however, is to depart from this
sven tenor in a sudden and start-
ling use of a childish phrase or a
seven dollar word. An example of
the former: "Not in vain had Rozia
studied Laura Lovely in 'Make Me.
a Bride.' And of the latter: "The
boy, Orrange, had the dolicocepha-
lus English head."
Never having been in Connecti-
out, we are not qualified to say
whether that state is in the shock-
ing condition of disrepair that one
s led to believe, in "American
3eauty." Certainly we have had no
previous second-hand knowledge of
that sort. Be that as it may, Edna
Ferber's book Is, throughout most
of its content, a great gob of un-
pardonably bad taste.$
The Modern Library, that pub-
lishing company which offers you

lers at only one dollar each, has
