Miss Dorothea Torbeson
Landed for Her Singing
By Cadillac Paper
Ann Arbor music lovers will be in-
terested in the following article
which recently appeared in the Cad-
illac Evening News concerning Miss
Dorothea Torbeson, a student of
James Hamilton of the voice faculty
of the School of Music, who gradu-
ated last June.
"For a young artist fresh from her
University training Miss Dorothea
Torbeson in her first recital here
Sunday evening gave a performance
worthy of a seasoned professional.
"It was a splendid performance
to give before any audience but the
more so before her own home town
people who oftentimes can be the
most severe of critics.
"From the beginning of her ambi-
tious program which included two
difficult arias and two of the always
difficult Strauss numbers as well as
several of the more modern things
Miss Torbeson sang with the ease
and assurance that promises a bright
"Her rendition was splendid and
the nicest thing about her voice it
was said today is its resonant pianis-
simo. She sings accurately, her tone
quality is lovely and the whole range
is even. Her program began with the
soft aria 'Caro Nome' from Rigoletto
(Verdi) which was sung with a fine
understanding. She concluded her
varied recital with a group of English
songs among which was "The Great
Awakenirg" by the modern com-
poser Kramer. Besides the scheduled
numbers Miss Torbeson was very
generous with the following encores:
'The Little Damosel,' 'A Dream' and
'Little Star.'
She was fortunate in having as her
accompanist, Mrs. Eleanor B. Wil-
liams, who has demonstrated her
ability on former occasions. The con-
cert was given in the First Congre-
gational church."
Taber Calls High Taxes
Worst Form of Weeds
NEW BRUNSWICK, N. J., Aug. 10.
-(AP)-Louis T. Taber of Columbus,
O., national master of the Grange,
believes there are "weeds" which are
a greater menace to the farmer than
those growing in his fields.
These "weeds," he told about 250
members of the Middle Atlantic
Grange Lectures' association, are
high taxes, roundabout system of
marketing and expensive marketing
"The farmer received less of what
the consumer paid in 1931 than ever
before," he said. "Our speculative
marketing methods have developed
into the most expensive 'weed' af-
fecting modern agriculture."

Here's how you score when you use a Waterman's
fountain pen. You write better. Professor reads
easier. You get a better mark. Professor gets an
extra set of tennis. Everybody happy.
You write better because Waterman's pen
points are smoother, more flexible, longer lasting.
A wide selection lets you get just the point that
fits your hand. The patented spoon-feed delivers
the ink at exactly the proper rate-no skimping
or blotting. Size for size, Waterman's hold more
ink-won't run dry in a lecture or exam.
