Musicians from Many Lands Will Ap
pear on the Program Mme. Olltz
ka 4s Always Popular Soloists
Are of Exceptional Merit.
Tho grout Minneapolis Symphony
Orchestra, which Is to appear on the
16th and 17th of next month, will glvo
tho people of this community such a
musical treat as they have novor be
fore enjoyod. This fine orchestra or
fifty trained artists Is making a nine
weeks' tdur of the country, and it was
with the belief that the music lovers
hero would give such a metropolitan
orchestra the hoartlest support that
tho management of tho festival felt
secure in engaging the great musical
organization. According to tho many
press reports from tho cities in which
tho Minneapolis orchestra has ap
peared this spring there can bo no ns to the superiority of the or
chestra as a body.
Tho musicians of the orchestra are
for the most part of European birth
and education. All are professional
musicians, whq devote their entire
time to music, and there Ib hardly a
famous orchestra in this country or
In Europe that has not contributed
musicians to the Minneapolis Sym
phony Orchestra, and there Is hardly
a greut conductor in the world under
whom some of the musicians have not
Great 8oloista Too.
Not only will the people of Lincoln
and tho university be treated to tho
best .orchestra music In tho country,
but they will bo agreeably surprised
at tho solo work of tho well known
soloists who will come with tho or
chestra. Mme. Rost Olitzka, the eminent
Polish operatic star, who'ls to appear
in the first concert of tho May fes
tival, is a prima donna contralto of
the highest rank. Her recent Ameri
can conquests on both tho opera and
concert stage aro merely supplemen
tal to the successes that woro hers
abroad and which caused the musical
world to resound with her pralseB,
This great artist has sung seasons
with the Imperial National Opera
company of St. Petersburg, tho Na
tional Opera company in Berlin, and
La Scala, Milan, and for eight years
altornatod between tho Metropolitan
Grund Opera company of Now York
and Convent Garden, London, as prima
donna contralto. It falls to the lot of
very few singers to win tho highest
European honors of helng decorated
by four freat rulers as was Mme.
Orlltzka. This fact alono signifies
that she Ib a favorito across tho sea.
Mme. Orlltzka not only is a famqus
grand opera singer, but she has
gained much deserved praise by the'
trained critics as a concert singer.
,It Is no easy matter for operatic per
formers to adapt themselves to con
cort singing, and It lsOrlltzka's good
fortune to bo abje to so conduct her
self In concert work as to bring forth
unbound praise. ' ' v
Mme. Orlltzka's splendid presence
and the charm of , her personality
,'lond a distinctive attractiveness to
her concert appearance that is ai
rways responsible for roturn engage
,'montB. Tho director of the orchestra is de
sirous that there be a largo .university
chorus in connection with the con.
corts. Consequently tho chorus will
bo augmented and will sing In tho
operatic program. Mrs. Raymond has
requested that all good singers In tho
university should npply for places In
this special chorus. As a number of
womon aro expected to apply, male
voices will in all probability bo in de
mand, although that part of the pres
ent chorus is excellent.
The chorus will .rehearse on Tues
day and Wednesday. The ladles will
rehearse on Thursday nnd the men on
Friday. Tho practicing will bo con
ducted in the Temple at 5 p. in.
Ivy Day Music and Verses Must Be

mltteo anticipates' that many good
songs will be submitted. The song

to Take Responsibility In Eli
gibility Matter.
At a meeting of tho board of con
trol last evening In Dr. Clapp's of lice
tho summer hasoball matter was
again discussed. The eligibility mat
ter was again brought into tho lime-
light by the action of the members of,
tho tenm, In whlqh they signified, their
desire to certify to their eligibility.
This action -was tabooed by the board'
and the men will not bo nllowed to
take the- -action which thoy desire.
The board decided that they would
hold to their original action and will
allow no certificates of eligibility of'
tho members of tho team to bo issued.
The 'action of the- teams in the east-4
ern trip which sthe Cornhuslcers have
scheduled still leaves the matter In
tho air to a certain extent'. Iowa re-
fuses to play tho CornhUBkors al
though they aro In favor Of su minor
baseball, hut they aro hold back by
the ruling of tho conference. Ames
will play tho CornhusltorB on tho
dates which havo been scheduled If
tho matter can be so arranged. Min
nesota, tho other conforenco Bchool
with which games havo boon sched
uled, has ns yet taken no doflnlto ac
tion on the matter, as thoy can play
tho Cornhusker team the samo as they
play league teams and other teams
who are not governed by conforenco
rules. Tho trip will not bo cancelled
and tho team will louvo Friday for
tho east, where It plays Ames on Sat
