School of Music Quartet Stars in Final
Summer Song Fest at
CHORAL UNION CHORUS PLEASES
That it takes more than rain to keep
Ann Arbor music lovers away from
something good was demonstrated last
night when the largest audience that
has ever assembled to hear a summer
concert gathered in Hill Auditorium to
listen to the last summer faculty con-
cert. And they were amply rewarded
for their pains, for the program was
one of the most delightful and well
balanced of the whole series.
The quartet composed of Messrs.
Kenneth N. Westerman, Walter S.
Westerman, U. Stanley Wilson, and
Harry Carlson, did excellently. They
did especially well in F. F. Bullard's
"Winter Song," and "The Friars'
Song," which was given as an encore.
Miss Nora Crane Hunt pleased as
usual. Her rendition of Harriet Ware's
"Joy of the Morning," was well appre-
ciated and she responded with a
charning lullaby as an extra selection.
Mr. Albert Lockwood, head of the
piano department of the school of
music, played brilliantly. His playing
of the "Penitential Song," by Beeth-
oven-Liszt, and Tschaikowsky's,
"Scherzo a le Russe," was all that
could be desired. He executed many
spirited runs with a firm touch, and
his technique was faultless.
The summer choral union's singing
of Gounod's, "Galliai," proved to be
the big number on the program. With
Miss Ada Grace Johnson carrying the
difficult soprano role, and Mr. Earl
Vincent Moore playing an excellent ac-
companiment on the organ, the produc-
tion was meritorious. The harmony
was well sustained throughout, and
considering the few rehearsals that
had been held, Mr. Westerman can
well be complimented -on the character
of the performance.
OFFUT LOSES TO ALEXANDER

Winnar Will Play Mack for Place in
Final Round of
When Offut defaulted to Alexandr
yesterday, Alexander was advanced to
the semi-finals of the racquet match,
and will play Mack to see which will
play Baker for the final round. Alex-
ander has proved to be the real "dark-
horse" of the tournament, and has
been coming well all summer. Mack
seems to have the odds, however, and
is expccted to win both games.
Time may be extended forthe play-
ing off the doubles until next week, al-
though many will have examinations
conflicting. A schedule is posted on
the bulletin board in Huston's for
both matches. Scores should be mark-
ed up there immediately.
