The annual Home Concert in which
the University Glee Club appear to
day is an event towards which the
members have worked for many
weeks. (Every concert which the club
bas thus far given has been but a
preparation for this, the climax of the
season. In the programs to bo ren
dered today only the best is offered.
There is not an old thing on the pro
gram, Furthermore, the matinee is

as good as the evening entertainment.

bers. George "Ireland, the whistling

power and dramatic ability. Accom

braska's Former Glee Clubs.
In the past three years theUnlver
slty Glee Club has met with more
varied fortunes thanhas probably
any other organization of the school.
Financial troubles, earthquakesj and
moral questions have all had a part
In agitating affairs.
Two years ago there was "much ex
citement over the two-thousand-dollar
deficit which the club faced, as a re
sult of financial mismanagement. The
big western trip had to be abandoned
because of the outbreak of Dame Na
ture on the Pacific coast. A trip
through the state helped but little In
the effort to float the stranded finan
cial derelict. Civil actions In Lincoln
courts and threats of criminal prose
cutions served to add spice to the
Hvob of theTblub members.
Last year theCblorado trip was a
pronounced success. The finances
were managed in a satisfactory man

The club was too used to sensation,
however, to endure a position outside
the limelight The organization broke
into print under the headllnes,"Sang
Rag Time .in M. E, Church," "Dance
Steps in a Puipit," "Glee Club .Mem
