Men in the Club are enrolled in'
undergraduate colleges or profes-
sional schools. In addition to
studying, they have found time
to make extensive road tours
throughout this country and Eur-
ope, in recent years.
"We've appeared in states from
New York City as far west as Tul-

Memphis, Tenn," Portwood re-

Quebec City. The singers sailed
to Rotterdam, where they started
their tour with a command per-

the Hague.
Concerts in Germany
They gave three more concerts
in Holland before travelling to
Germany. Seven performances
highlighted their stay in that
country, with major stop-offs at
Cologne, Heidelberg and Munich.
Moving into Austria, the men
sang at Salzburg and Zell am See.
Italy was next on the agenda. They

The Glee Club left the Mediter-
ranean for the mountains, with
Lucerne, Switzerland as their des-
tination. Two concerts in France,
both at Paris culminated the tour.
Varietw of Surroundings
They entertained in a variety of
surroundings. "Our concerts in-
cluded appearances before uni-
versity audiences, musical groups,
military installations, night clubs
and community groups, in addition
to the Royal Court and the Ameri-
can Embassy," Portwood remarked.
The Club sailed for the U.S.
from France and arrived back in
New York City July 29.
Besides the concert experience,
Portwood feels the entire tour gave
Club members "a wonderful op-
portunity to see many of the out-
standing sights of Europe."
