Somewhere along the line they have allowed some-
body to take a lot of fun out of their singing. Missj
Higbee and staff have perfected their intonation and
their enunciation and balanced the choirs. But, asI
the sound of the words suggests, those things are
not what one expects of children. As the children
appear in the Festivals there is very little delight
evident. There is a prevailing mildness and some-
what dull correctness which is incongruous. As a
matter of fact in the Gilbert and Sullivan pieces
!which they sang the kind of mild, fastidious 'enuncia-
tion .which the children gave was definitely wrong as
interpretation. There are buoyant conversational
inflections in all this music which the children did
not render and which they could, I am sure, rendera
delightfully. And again, I am sure many have desired
with me to hear just how much volume four hundred
children are capable of. Yet, "When the Foeman
Bares His Steel" was very carefully sung, and onej
was thwarted. My intention is not to minimize the
importance of Miss Higbee's efforts to make the!
children sing corectly. Enthusiasm and vitality, how-
ever, seem to be stifled.
Mina Hager contributed to the afternoon some
very pleasant singing. She seemed a little embar-
rassed in the style of eighteenth century oratorio butt
one was glad to hear an unfamiliar aria, "Salve1
Regina' by Pergolesi. The songs by John AldenI
Carpenter she sang very delightfully and in her
encore, an unfamiliar aria by Rossini from "La Cev-t
erentola," she displayed her talents to real advantage.

I was waiting for an economics
class at 10 o'clock yesterday morn-
ing, and the sociology professor who
had had the class the hour before
was explaining to a young lady
about a picnic they were going on.
The meeting place was subject of
some discussion, and it was finally
decided to meet at Camden Court.
The young lady didn't know wher.c
Camden Court was, so the profes-
sor drew appropriate diagrams on
the board in front of the waiting
economics class. Just as he was
through our ec instructor walked
"Oih, oh," he said, "what's going
on here?"
"0 h nothing," embarrassedly
smiled the sociologist, "just a Sun-

SATURDAY, MAY 21, 1932
Dr. Stan ley-
Un iversity Builder
HEN death called Professor Emeritus Stan-
ley the University lost one of itsbest-known,
best-loved faculty members; Ann Arbor lost one
of its greater influences for culture; and the entire
student body of Michigan lost a wonderful friend.
Not many students of today remember personal
contacts with Dr. Stanley-he retired as head of
the school of music more than ten years ago. Many
faculty members who knew him then still remem-
ber the many likeable chaacteristics which marked
him at the time however. For then he was wont
to poke his ever-present pipe at one in all good
humor and reflect his pleasant personality wher-
ever he might be. Then he used to show students
the proper manner in which the famous ol' locomo-
tive should be yelled at a pep gathering; then hel
attracted thebflocks of "pipe" seekers to his courses
in the theory of music-and made them like it
even after discovering that the courses really
meant something; then he wrote the music for
the plays presented by the senior women, Greek
societies, and other organizations. :
Now he is remembered by the present campus
group because the May Festival which he origin-
ated still endures; because his many compositions
seem to mellow with the years and are more
appreciated all the time; because alumni tell of
his wonderful accomplishments.
He was one of the city's most loyal sons. An
ardent supporter of civic activities, he never missed
the meetings of the Rotary club, even when in
Vienna. In fact he probably enjoyed its meetings
because of its international aspects-he was often
on the run between the continent and the United
States. To Rotarians he was "Dad" Stanley.
His University shall miss him, his many stu-
dents shall miss him, every music lover regrets
his departure. Dr. Stanley--one of the reasons
why Michigan is the University it is today!

polite, to note down a reflection the reviewer had
while Mr. Gigli was unexpectedly stealing one of the
favorite encores of concert pianists and violinists:
In the time taken by Mr. Gigli's scampering and
'extra' encores, the needed second perform'ance of
the "Symphonie de Psaumes" and perhaps of the
"Choral Fantasia,' which Mr. Moore spoke of Thurs-
day night, could have occurred. The question is
open. Obviously it is one of value.
Frederick Stock excellently directed his orchestra,
which remains excellent through all its vicissitudes,I
in an early Mozart Symphony, Scriabine's "The
Divine Poem," Gliere's symphonic poem "The Sirens,"
and the Strauss "Emperor Waltzes." The Mozart was
splendid. The seventeen year old boy frequently
worried and occasionally broke the French horn sec-
tion. Otherwise the only thing to mention about the
Derformance is that Mr. Stock displayed his usual
good taste with classical music. Taken in connection
with the amazing commentary which he wrote for
it, the "Divine Poem" by the 'Palestrina of the Bla-j
vatsky religion' seemed only pretentious nonsense.!
Taken for itself, it often seemed as interesting as
Wagner and often seemed an interesting parody of
Wagner. The Gliere symphonic poem seemed very!
good of its kind. Johann Strauss? An excellent
composer. Intentions clear, execution perfect. j
W.J.G. ;

I was strolling across campus thc
other evening, directly behind
Chase Baromeo a nd Frederick
Jagel, two of the Festival stars.
Hoping to get an earful of what
they thought of students, jazz, wo-
men, music and Festivals, I listened
carefully to the conversation.
They were discussing the best
holds for wrestling.
* * *I
I was always a little skeptical
about these college men selling this,
that, and the other thing, to work
their way through college. But it
must be true. In yesterday morn-
ing's D.O.B. there was a notice
about Mr. Blank, of the Fuller
Brush company, who would like to
interview men for permanent em-
It would, however, be much more
interesting to me to work along the
lines suggested by the Bureau of
Appointments and Occupational In-
formation in a similar notice yes-
terday, such as Mothers' Pensions,
Delinquent Juveniles, or Case Work.
* * .
I might just as well mention, be-
fore many people start calling my
attention to it, an advertisement
yesterday which calls your atten-
tLiof to "Pajamas- 2 Off."'

A Review
It was very clear after only a few minutes yester-
day afternoon that Bach and the performers were
contributing something quite solid and incontrovert-
ible to the Festival. The Brandenburg Concertos,
Schweitzer assures us, represent "the purest productI
of Bach's polphonic style." At least in the Fifth, as
in others, the agility and absolute sureness of what
might as well be called Bach's musical intelligence
are evident to perfection. The performance was quite
good enough. To some extent the first movement
was spoiled by a serious mistake in acoustical tactics.
There was enough indication when one heard the
piano that Mr. Brinkman was playing his highly
figured lines with the requisite sharpness and preci-
sion. But with the top down, those lines often came
out blurred and often, for the reviewer in a central
seat in the first gallery, not at all. In the lovely slow
movement, Mr. Brinkman had a tendency to do too
much 'phrasing'- indulging slight retards and ac-
