past decades, a series of six con-
certs will be presented in four
days: one Thursday, one Friday,
two Saturday, two Sunday.
These Festival concerts are in-

of the year. During the year, 26
regular concerts are presented, in
which a wide variety of musical
literature is provided.
The Society attempts to present
a balance between classic, roman-
tic and contemporary music. Con-
certs, focus attention: on selections
which remain as stock repertoire
of the musical world. They are
intended to provide an opportuni-

was to establish a tie with Uni-

the Society announced a new "An-

The first annual Festival more
than succeeded. Advertised and
publicized nationally, the concert

all areas of the country. Special

After the concert series had con-

Work On Boats
Upon arrival at the .Camp the
groups immediately set to work.
First assignment was removal of
benches from the boat house.
"I don't think we ought to stack
them," one pledge offered. "They
have to be taken down for the
painting later in the week."
"Oh, but that won't be till Fri-
day and I'm not comning back Fri-
day," someone answered.
Then began the boat scraping.
One girl tentatively applied a
scraper to the bottom of a boat,
but nothing happened. She pushed
a little harder and still nothing
