First Campus
Structure Has
100th Birthday
This fall the President's House,
oldest University building still stand-
ing on the campus, celebrated its
100th birthday.
Completed in the fall of 1840, the
President's House was one of the
first four residential structures erect-
ed to house professors and store liter-
ary and "philosophical apparatus"
until the main buildings were fin-
, Early Regents appropriated $30,850
for the four houses and stipulated
that an avenue 100 feet wide should
run north and south through the
campus and that the houses should
be erected in airs on each side.
The avenue idea ras later abandoned,
but the houses were built in pairs
on the north and south parts of the
campus with "wood houses, cisterns,
and barns" for each.
Although originally planned for
residence houses, the buildings were
used as quarters for various Univer-
sity departments. From 1869 to 1891
the northeast house was occupied by
the University Hospital, and from
1891 to 1907 it housed the School of
The northwest building was used
for the dentistry school, the Homeo-
;athic Medical College, the pathology
department, and the Department of
Psychology. The roving dentistry
school also rested for awhile in the
southwest structure which later be-
manie the School of Engineering for
30 years. It was torn down in 1922
.o make room for the Clements Li-
President Tappan set a precedent
by living in the southwest building
and it has since been called the
President's House. During its 100-
year existence on the campus, the
square, two-story structure has been
itered many time to keep abreast of
the times.

Woo Booths'
Are Distasteful
To Opera Star
Blue-eyed, blond, six-footer Chand-
ler Pinney, '41E, who will have the
male lead in this year's Union Opera,
is opposed to his role as the organizer
of socialized romance in "Take A
Although he is spending one-third
of his campus life at the present time]
rehearsing, and although he is devel-
oping a sad case of laryngitis singing
the opera's eight or more numbers,
Pinney can't agree with his dramatic
second self that dating bureaus are,
the salvation of future colleges.

Leading Metropolitan Baritone
To Sing In Choral Union Concert

Richard Bonelli, the Metropolitan
)pera Company's leading baritone,
will sing here 8:30 p.m. Tuesday in
dill Auditorium in the season's fifth
Uhoral Union concert.
Sponsored by the University Mu-
ical Society, Bonelli will offer a
pregram made up of some of his most
amous operatic airs, as well as clas-
ical numbers. A few tickets priced
t $1, $1.50, $2 and $2.50 may still
>e had by calling the society's of-
'ices in the Burton Tower, or at the
Hill Auditorium box-office after 7
p.m. on Tuesday.
Labeled by the country's most em-
inent critics "a great singer, a fine
.ctor and a great personality," Bon-
11i is continuing his concert stage
appearance this year after jp highly
successful coast-to-coast tour last
season with 60 scheduled perform-
Although the name Bonelli is an
Italian one, the singer is a born
American, and his family have been
New York residents for the past three
generations. Before he started his
musical career his name was Bunn,
'out since foreign artists were in great
favor in the middle 20's it was con-
sidered good policy to assume the
surname of Bonelli.
Coming from a musical family,
Bonelli had some musical training
in his youth, but he entered the Uni-
versity of Syracuse as a major in
the department, of applied science.
Encouraged by the dean of the fine
arts school to continue his voice
training, the singer took his advice

and eventually went to Paris to study
under the European masters.
He made his debut with the Monte
Carlo Opera Company and was an
immediate success. After a tour of
Europe he was engaged by the Chi-
cago Civic Company where he re-
mained until the group disbanded in
1931 when he joined the Metropoli-
tan and has remained with them ever
since as leading baritone.1
Bonelli's varied experience in fields1
other than music has aided him tre-
mendously in his acting roles in op-
era. Before he settled down to a
singing career he worked as a news-
boy, a magazine canvasser, a bank
messenger, a farmer's helper in har-
vest time and a mechanic's helper.
He still, according to his press re-
leases, retains his former love for
working with engines and indulges in
the work as a pastime today.

Men's Glee Club
To Meet At Union

ident, announced yesterday.

an opera committee at this rehearsal.
Jack Osserwaarde, Grad., will accom-
pany the group which will be con-
ducted by Prof. David Mattern, of
the School of Music.

of serenading on Thursday.

Reaches its peak
during the course

the purpose of speeding up student
enrollment. The woo-wooers' slogan
is "Take A Number and A Chance In
the Bureau of Socialized Romance."
The "Take a number" motif is carried
out by having prospective daters
match the numbers they have chosen
with those worn by coeds.
Pinney, however, despite the fact
that he believes James Bob Stephen-
son, his leading lady, is a "cute num-
ber"-in the opera-doesn't think
that dating bureaus are necessary or
efficient. "Blind dates may be worse
than no date at all," he points out.
Admitting that he won the opera
lead because of his ability to sing
rather than act, Pinney reavealed
that the extent of his histrionic train-
ing is limited to two lines he once
uttered as a plumber in a high school
play. "I think I'm changing my
characterization/ a little as the ro-
mantic lead, though," he said yester-
day," thanks to director Hadley and
Jack Silcott who are coaching me."
The Union Opera's "Take A Num-
ber's" popular songs, which someday
may be headed for the Hit Parade, if
certain plans and the nation be will-
ing, will be introduced at Soph Prom
this afternoon and evening.
Chandler Pinney, '41E, the opera's
leading man, will present several of
the tunes most likely to catch on, ac-
companied by Red Norvo's orchestra.
