'U' Residen Students To Vie for Top Honors
u i rec ro rs
Each year now, for the past
three, Columbia Records has jour-
neyed to southern France, to the
small secluded mountain villages
on the border-line between France
and Spain, and recorded all the
performances of the Casals Fes-
Since the thirties when Franco
assumed absolute dictatorship in
his native Spain, Casals has been
lying in self-imposed exile in a
monastery at Prades.
The past three years, however,
he has in the summer forsaken
his hermitic existance, and led a
Festival featuring the world's most
This year the Festival was de-
voted to Schubert, Schumann and
Brahms. The'list of artists includes
violinists Issac Stern, Joseph Szi-
geti and Alexander Schneider;
pianists Myra Hess, Eugene Isto-
min, Leopold Mannes and Mieczy-
slaw Horszowski; cellists Casals,
Paul Torteller and Madeline Foley;
violists Milton Katims and Milton
Thomas and flutist John Wum-
The works played were Brahms'
Sextet No. 1 In B-flat major;
Quintet No. 2 in G major; Quartet
No. 3 in C minor for piano and
strings; Trio No. 1 in B major
and Trio No. 2 in C major. Schu-
bert's Quintet in C major; Trio
No. 1 in B-flat major; Trio No. 2
in E-flat major; Sonata No. 5 for
violin and piano; Variations on,
"Trock'ne Blumen" and "Die
Schone Mullerin" for flute and
piano. Schumann's Quintet in E-
flat major for piano and strings;
Funf Stuke Im Volkstan for cello
and piano and Trio No. 1 in D
All the works seemed to describe
what is memorable in chamber
music of the romantic period, post
Beethoven and pre-twentieth cen-
SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMERS-As part of the Michifish Club
of the WAA, the, synchronized swimming club participates in
numerous water shows and exhibitions yearly at the new Women's
Pool. Freshmen are urged to join the club, experienced or not.
The list of artists automatically
speaks technical excellence. No
performance can be called re-
strained, according to the review-
ers-none are in bad taste. '
"It is redundant to use superla-'
tives;" commented reviewer Don-
ald Harris, "for a performance'
such as the Brahms' first Trio with.
Stern, Casals and Hess sounds
exactly like what one would ex-
pect from such people-beauti-
fully wrought, carefully planned
and enthusiastically presented."
At the present time Columbia
is only issuing the records in a
very expensive limited edition ser-
ies, with the main issue for public
consumption, according to Casals
followers, without the "fancy al-
bum and trimmings."
Mercury records' recent long-
play release of Serenade for clari-
net and strings by Prof. Homer
Keller of the music school, will be
of considerable interest to local
collectors who know Prof. Keller's
music only from his late efforts
that have been performed here.
The Serenade written during
Prof. Keller's student days, is
quite a change from his recent
offerings, like last year's Viola
Sonata. It would be wrong to cast
off this romantic student work as
unworthy of serious listening, as
it has its own expressivity and
The influences of the work seem-
ed to be like that of Debussy, De-
lius and the impressionistic com-
posers, not so much in sounding
like them as using their methods.
The performance was by the!
Orchestra, conducted by Howard
Hanson. Part of a series entitled
"Americana," it was performed
along with the works of Copland,
Bernard Rogers, Hanson, Kent
Kennan and Wayne Barlow. All,
the works are for solo winds and

University last year.
New at her job this last year,
Mrs. Kempf was -originally sup-
posed to be housemother at Lloyd
House in West Quadrangle, but
was switched to Chicago House
when the latter was converted to'
a women's dormitory for freshmen
and transfer students last fall.

In Annual Lantern Night Program
Lantern Night, sponsored by the
Women's Athletic Association, pro-
vides an opportunity for the coeds
and excitement that usually pre-
vails only on an athletic field.
Tradition reigns at this event,
which originated from a women's
field day in 1913. This year's pro-
gram will mark its 42nd anni-
versary, according to The Daily's

Thirty is the maximum number
of women that may participate
from one house,'excluding the song
leader. Because of the popularity
of this songfest, an elimination ses-
sion must be held to determine,,
those who will appear at the Lan-
tern Night Sing.
Groups which are not chosen for
the actual contest nevertheless
play an active part by sponsoring
one of the participating houses and
cheering for them.
At the eliminations the judges

lines are the freshman coeds wear-
ing green ribbons in their hair,
sophomores with red ribbons, jun-
iors with yellow bows and senior
women with blue blows.
The parade ends at Hill Audi-
torium, where the women form
a huge block "M" and sing the
"Yellow and the Blue." The Sing
is then held inside the auditorium
with approximately 12 c h o r a 1
groups vying for the first, second
and third place awards.
These Lantern Night festivities
originated in 1913. At this time
coeds took part in races and vari-
ous athletic events at a field day
at Palmer Field. Each class pre-
sented a groups of stunts.
The first parade was held in 1932
with a procession around Palmer
Field. The seniors carried Japan-
ese lanterns, and the juniors had
hoops through which the freshman
jumped. From this parade came
the name, Lantern Night. Lanterns
are still carried in the parade.

Packaged in a five-ounce spray
container, which eliminates spill-
age worries, the cologne emerges as
a fluffy white foam. The cologne
was developed and produced by
a famed cosmetic firm, which
claims that this product is com-
pletely non-sticky and that it will
melt into the skin very quickly

The new cologne foam is avail-
able in four well-known scents.
The producers of this lanolin-en-
riched cologne say that these sub-
tle fragrances will outlast alcohol-
based cologne by hours.
Another new product on the
scent scene is a scientifically de-
veloped perfume "pellette" which
is enclosed in a tiny lace envelope.
The scent of this tablet form
perfume is said to last for weeks
without replacement. The mak-
ers claim that their product can-
not disintegrate in use and that
moisture will not affect the tablet
or its fragrance. It can be used in
a woman's purse or attached to
her clothing. It can also be put
in dresser drawers with handker-
chiefs. or lingerie.
There is world of fragrances
from 'which to choose a correct
one for each individual coed. It
might be a light floral scent or a
heavy oriental, a spicy bouquet
or a definitely "sweet" one.
No one fragrance is right for
all women, because of personal-
ity differences, but all women can
wear more than one fragrance.
Varying scents can be mixed and
matched until the right combina-
tion is discovered.

for her and those around her.

For dieting women, a new de-

is lotion, which is applied to firm
