Second Complimentary Concert De

Hill Auditorium
(ly Helen Kemper)
'The second complimentary concer
given by the faculty of the Universit
School of Music wvas held in Hill audi
torium, Wednesday evening. A ver
interesting program was rendered by
Mr. Albert Lockwood, pianist, and Mrs
Anna S. Imig, vocalist.
The first number on the program
was the Sonata Op. 37 by Tschaikow
sky. The first movement, Moderato
was a brilliant opening followed b
an Andante non troppo with appeal
ing and wistful themes, the Scherzo
was gay and spritely, and the Final
ended the composition with a grand
uourish. The Sonata was so easily
rendered that the technical difficulty
was not realized.
Mrs. Imig gave an Aria from "La
Giocondia" which delighted her audi
ence. Her encore was well known and
received with pleasure.
The airy scales and arpeggios of
Chopin's Andante Spianato fairly rip
pled under the light touch of the art
ist. It was followed by the Grande
Polonaise which is always a favorite
Mrs. Imig closed the program with
"Yesteryear" by Crist, "My Heart is
a Lute" by Woodman, and "Dawn" by

Normal Game First for Newly Formed
Volverine Niue; Oher tiames
Will Follow
With Adams and Cooper of the Var-
sity champions of the West team, and
Hardy, Robins, and Wilson of the all-
fresh as a nucleus, Michigan's sum-
mer baseball team will go to Ypsi-
lanti Saturday afternoon for a game
with the Normal nine. The latter is
being coached by Coach Mitchell, Wol-
verine all-fresh and basketball mentor
who arranged for the game, and is try-
ing to schedule more. No organiza-
tion has been perfected and all men
who want to try out should call
Rychener at phone 609. The team
leaves Ann Arbor for Ypsilanti at
1:10 o'clock Saturday. There will be
no practice before the game.
There is a possiblity that Rube
Shideler, who broke into fame by
beating Chicago 7 to 6, and Iowa 7 to
2, may be in the box for Michigan.
At last reports it wasn't sure that he
would be able to go, but chances are
good. If he goes the Wolverines have
a good chance of coming- home with
the game. .
Men who will go are Adams and
Cooper, members of this year's cham-
pionship team, Hardy, Robins, and
Wilson of the all-fresh, Steve Farrell,
who formerly played with Colgate,
Barney of Western Reserve, Darling
of Albion, and Pilliod, Messner, Ben-

Rabbi Levi Mayer, who is giving a
series of lectures on the Jews, spoke
yesterday on: "The Jew and the Bi-
ble." He denied the divine authorship
of the book, calling it, rather, the liv-
ing testimony of the soul of the Jew-
ish nation, and unquestionably inspir-
ed. From this view of the Bible he
showed the logical necessity of a dis-
belief in its infallibility, inasmuch as
it is human and prone to error. To
prove it vacillating he cited the legis-
lation of the Talmudic leader, Rabbi
Hillel, who flourished at the time of
the boyhood of Christ, which was in
direct contradion to the Jubilee law
of the book of Leviticus.
Rabbi Mayer further disproved the
accusation so often hurled at the
Jew that he is legalistic, sacrificing
the spirit to the letter, by saying that
Jewish society even as that of all
peoples, holds factions both liberal
and conservative.
