Of College Campuses
Seen On Many Visits
An amazingly low throaty voice
characterizes Miss Beal ilober, the
guest soprano who will sing in Han-
del's "Messiah," which is being pre-
sented today in Hill Auditorium.
Miss Hober, a tall, Junoesque,
blonde woman with a disconcerting-
ly boyish grin, could use nothing but
superlatives at the merest mention.
of Ann Arbor and the University. "I.
have been to Detroit before," she said,
"but never to Ann Arbor. I didn't
know what I was missing. This place
is, fascinating, simply fascinating."
Miss Hober compared our campus
which, she confided, she has thor-
oughly inspected in her every spare
moment since she arrived, to that of
Yale University. Both, she admitted,
are lovely places, but Yale doesn't
even compare, in her estimation, to
Praises Union
Even the Union, where Miss Hober
was staying, came in for its due share
of praise. The interior monastic
type of architecture, she said, gives;
one he impression that he is any-
where but on a Middle-western cam-
pus. "There is one thing I can't;
understand, however, and that is why
they won't let women enter through
the front door. I tried leaving
through it and a man stopped me. I
was perfectly furious for a minute,"
Miss Hober admitted with a rueful
smile. "Oh well," she said philosophi-
cally, "It probably boosts the men's
ego to make the women use the back
entrance, and I certainly won't be
grudge them their fun."
It was not until Miss Hober had
thoroughly exclaimed the virtues of
the Michigan campus and its "very
cute students," that she would. even

again, her first comments were di-
rected toward the University. The'
University orchestra, according tol
Miss Hober, sounds as good, if not
better than most professional ones.
"And I have heard and sung with a
good many orchestras," she added1
with her abrupt smile.
Has Love For Music
As for Thor Johnson, the conductor
of the University orchestra, Miss
Hober could find no new words of
praise. "He is nothing short of won-
derful-it is a great pleasure to work
with a man of his ability and charm.
It makes a lot of difference, to a
guest soloist especially, whether the
conductor is pleasant or just an old
MissgHober said that she could not
remember any particular incident
which started her on the career which
has made her one of the leading so-
pranos of the day. She has always
loved music, she said, and as far back1
as she can remember, she has loved
to sing. "I can never remember hav-
ing had any other ambition than to
be a great singer," Miss Hober added.
Has Been Guest Artist
Within the past few years, Miss
Hober has sung as guest soprano with
an impressive number of orchestras.
Last winter she had several engage-
ments with the Detroit Symphony,
and she also sang with the Boston
Symphony and the New York Phil-
harmonic orchestra. Here recent
tours have also included the Phila-
delphia Symphony, the Rochester
Philharmonic, and she has performed
in Pittsburg and Midland.
At the present time, interupted only
by her trip to Ann Arbor, Miss Hober
is working on a solo recital which she
is to give Jan. 19, in Town Hall
in New York.

To Speak Here
Lincoln Kirstein Will Give
Talk On Dance History
Lincoln Kirstein, arector of the
Ballet Caravan and dance critic for
the New Republic, will present a lec-
ture illustrated by slides on "History
of the Dance" at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow,
at the Women's Athletic Building.
Included in the slide series will be
rare paintings based upon a collec-
tion at the British Museum, and up-
on ancient vases and wall paintings,
also at the museum.
"Kirstein has written the most
scholarly piece of work in the field
of dance history in recent years,"
commented Miss Bloomer, director of
the Dance Club. Among his works are
"Dance, a short history of Theatrical
Dance," which is his best known piece
of research. "Blast at Ballet," written
in the style of the 18th century
pamphleteers, is a corrective study for
American audiences. Much quoted
is its comment "All Americans think
that Russian Ballet is one word." On
the press now, and to appear very
soon is his latest book, "The ABC of

University, has been endeavoring
