Minnesotans Arrive In Alaska's 'Promised Land'

* i E *E%3I% 010@

The third May Festival Concertl
presented on Friday afternoon a pro-i
gram equally as varied as the two
preceeding concerts, including thei
Chicago Symphony orchestra, the
Young People's Chorus, and Ruth
Posselt, young American violinist.
The Mozart Overture, "Die Entfu-
hurng aus dem Serail," scored for a
small orchestra, was played by a por-
tion of the Chicago Symphony with
exquisitely good taste. Delicacy, yet
sufficient body of tone, perfection
of nuance - all combined to bring to
life again the charming small orches-
tra of Mozart's time. The Haydn
symphony in C major, played later in
the program, possessed the same ar-
tistry that was shown in the Mozart.
The violin and violin-cello cadenza in,
the III movement was played with a
beauty of tone and interpretation
that made it one of the loveliest bits'
of music on the program. Eric De-
Lamarter, associate conductor of thej
Symphony, led the orchestra with a
fine sense of tempo, precision, and
The Young People's Festival Chor-
us, under the direction of Miss Juva
Higbee, delighted the audience with
that charm always present in young
voices. Throughout the singing, the
children sang with a free, wholly nat-
ural tone, though one felt that the,
natural flexibility of children's voices
might have been used to greater ad-
Miss Posselt, in her playing ofj
Tchaikowsky's D"major'concerto,
proved herself a young artist worthy
of the enthusiasm she has aroused
during her musical career. Any young
artist having, at the age of 21, the
technical foundation possessed by
Miss Posselt, should, if she acquires
maturity and personal depth, go far
in the musical world.
Last evening was fun night at the
festival. What a keen judgment of I

it, just when we were looking forward
with a little weariness to the remain-
ing concerts, and wishing that they

but we were a little tired to enjoy it
fully and perhaps our fatigue made
us hear the ensemble a little astig-
matically sometimes.
Then came Deems Taylor's "Cir-
cus." It is just a bit of tom-foolery.1
Most of it isn't music at all - it
doesn't pretend to be. But we loos-
ened up, and laughed at having our
ribs tickled with all the funny sounds

Comstock To R
Governor In 19

LANSING, May 17 -(A')- Former
Gov. William A. Comstock will return
to the political wars as a gubernator-
ial contender next year, according
to Horatio Abbott, Democratic na-
tional committeeman.
Speaking at a banquet for the
Democratic women in the Eleanor
Roosevelt league here last night, Ab-
bott tossed the former governor's hat
into the campaign ring with the pre-
diction that Comstock would seek the
governorship nomination in 1936.
There were other political devel-
opments here Thursday which also
lent strength to reports that Com-
stock would try to regain his former
position of power after having served
one term in the governor's chair.
A group of party leaders, all friend-
ly to the former executive, conferred
with Comstock and Frank A. Picard
on tentative plans to place a commit-
tee in the field this year, separate and
distinct from the state central com-
mittee, to direct the 1936 state cam-
