Two Ann Arbor Soloists Feature
Final Musical Program
of Season
The University School of Music
Choral Union presented the last com-
plimentary concert this summer, "Fair
Ellen," at 8 o'clock last night in Mill
The concert was under the direction
of Kenneth N. Westerman. The pro-
gram was featured by two Ann Ar-
bor soloists, Miss Ada Grace Johnson
and Robert R. Dieterle.
"Joshua," by Modest Moussorgsky,
was the first number, and received
several encores. It was particularly
suited to the voices of the soloists,
which was somewhat fascinating in its
syncopated rhythm.
The last selection featured "Fair
Ellen." This operatic piece brought
numerous applauses from the audi-
ence. The story deals with the rescue
of the English during a daring siege.
Max Brush, the author of "Fair El-
len," vividly portrayed the emotions
of the actors in the play. Otto Stahl
acted as the accompanist.
Complete Course in Red Cross Work
The course in surgical dressings has
just been completed, and another ser-
ies will be given by Mrs. I. D. Loree
early in the fall. The making of 21
kinds of bandages is taught. The

lums in the training of a Red Cross
Appoint New Engineering Instructor
Granville D. Jones has been ap-
pointed instructor in mathematics in
the Engineer college to fill the posi-
tion of William Garretson, who has
recently resigned.

Redfern and Kirkpatrick Battle Way
to Finals by Fast Racquet
Redfern and Kirkpatrick are the two
contestants in the finals of the tennis
tournament singles who will play for
the championship at 4 o'clock this aft-
ernoon on South Ferry Field. The two
men have eliminated their opponents
in fast style, and judging from their
previous exhibitions both men will put
forth a strong game to capture the
tennis laurels.
Redfern, hailing from Georgia, is
one of the best racqueters to appear
on the Ferry Field courts this sum-
mer. His playing is fast and consist-
ent and with the experience he has
obtained from several tournaments In
the South, he will undoubtedly play a
brilliant game.
Kirkpatrick, who is a hard-driving
and fast player, has participated in
several -of the previous tournaments
at Michigan, and has always finished
with the top-notchers.
Semifinals Hard Fought
Fox and Buell were the two run-
ners-up in the semifinals who were
eliminated yesterday in two hard
fought matches. Fox was defeated
by Redfern by the score 7-5 and 6-1.
The first match was a deadlock from
start to finish, but Redfern took the
second game in easy style.
Kirkpatrick found hard competition
in eliminating Buell, winning by the
score 8-6 and 6-0, with Buel' grabbing
the second match by a 6-2 score. Buell
showed good form in the'second round
but fell down in the last set.
Start Doubles Tomorrow
The first elemination in the doubles
tennis tournament will be played this
afternoon, and the following schedule
has been arranged: Buell and Jeffries
vs. Redfern and Shields, Fox and
Langworthy vs. Fitzpatrick and
Penzotti, Doty and Kirkpatrick vs.
Doolittle and Sawyer, and Egley and
Burtis vs. Dawley and Klein.
The tennis tournament will prob-
ably extend to at least the first few
days of next week, but the finals must
be completed by Wednesday. The final
results will be published In the last
issue of The Wolverine on Thursday
of next week.
