GLEE CLUB CONCERT
IS A GRAND SUCCESS
PROGRAM 18 CLEVER, ORIGINAL
AND PLEA8ING.
STUNTS PRODUCE LAUGHTER
Williams' New 8ong Is 8ung and Mc-
1 Masters' Solo Makes Hit With
a Targe Audience.
Without a doubt tho boat thing that
has been given beforo a univorsity
audience for somo time was tho Glee
club, concert at tho Oliver last night.
Tho houso was well filled with stu
donts and faculty mombers and round
upon round of applauso greeted tho
singers. Great technique was shown
and the' harmonious blending of voices
was such that is seldom found in
amateur companies. Director Sam
uclson cannot bo given too much
credit fdr tho training of tjio club.
His" work, has Indeed Drought forth
results that are -worthy of the effort.'1
Part I.
Beginning in the first part with
tho club clustered about a firoplaco,
tho "Winter Song" was sung. -Tho
novel Bcono lent a solemn effect to
tho music and pleased tho audience
Immensely. Tho other numbers ren
dered by the club, Including an orlg
" lnal m6dleyrworooqually-goodr The
male quarte't sang "Breezes of tho
Night" and "Romombqr Now Thy
Creator," tho latter, given by roqueBt,
was-especially good.
Howard McMostors sang a boIo,
"The Armorer's Song" from "Robin
, Hood." Tho deep voice of the singer
' was well fitted to tho piece, and from
tho applause that followed It Is safe
to say that It was tho hit of tho even
ing. Tlmbuctoo," by the Glee club
was, particularly pleasing.
Clnberg and Nelson.
Owlng to tho Illness of Mr. Bonner,
tho string quartet was unable to ap
pear. Instead, Miss Helen Clnberg
rendered two boIob on tho violin and
Herbert A. Nelson played pieces on
the 'cello. Miss Clnberg is one of tho
younger musicians and displayed
more than usual ability. Mr. Nelson
was secured at a late hour to appear
on tho program, but there was no evi
dence of want of preparation on his
part. Liberal applause greeted tho
playing of both musicians.
The 8tunts.
Tho second part of tho program was
entitled "Stunts." Tho namo alono
describes tho character of the
sketches, which wore original and
funny in' the extreme. . Tho "Four
Humpordlnk's" sang an old-time fa
foflte and executed Bomo fast danc
ing. Tho faces and arms of those
peculiar beings could bo recognized,
but tho short bodies woro a puzzler
for somo time. "The Old Oaken
Bucket" was next produced Uio
bucket tho Iron band, tho moite, and
tho well being brought on by four
different persons and put together on
the Btage. Then tho "Comedy Four
Quartet" appeared. Each was dressed
in knee pants and woro long curly
hair to signify his tender age'. The
appearance of tho actors and tho
humorous selections afforded ample
opportunity to laugh.
The Pipe Organ.
Announcement was then made that
tho ereat nine organ from tho Mor-
rtaba tabernacle at Salt Lake City had
been transported at considerable ex
pMe. Wfcea the curtaia , reso a

serleB of blnta were exhibited that
are 'tnusua1 for anorgan. First tho
pump would not work and then great
effort 'was uaod on tho part of tho
player to got tho "pipes" In tune. Ho
pushed each one down and it mado a
musical sound. As soon as these
human "pipes" could bo brought to
tno proper pitcn, a selection was
played much to tho amusement of tho
auttiohce.
Tho next scone showed a yacht
passing over tho sea. Tho lights in
tho distance which kopt moving mado
it seem quite real, and this might
safely be said to have been one of
tho greatest undertakings of tho even
ing. Then camo tho "Sailors Song"
and "Hornpipe" dance. Those who
took part woro dressed In tho white
sailor costume and tho audlenco was
not satisfied until they had brought
thom back several times for tho
danco, which was well dono.
On the Campus.
Tho third and last part, entitled
"On tho Campus," showed a campuB
In springtime. A profoBBor and his
girl occupied ono of tho benches and
woro so attentive to each other that
they did not notice tho entranco of
tho club singing "Boola." The latter
woro not, however, bo absorbed in
themselves, and soon grasped tho
situation, singing "They Kissed, I
Saw Thom Do It." The poor profes
sor explained his situation and told
his talo of woo by singing "Predica
ments." One of tho features of tho enter
tainment was "Do Fireflies," by A. M,
Emley and tho club. This song was-
written especially for tho occasion by
Guy B. Williams. It Is original in
every sonBO and depicts tho supersti
tions that surround tho negroes of tho
south. Tho rendition, was added to
much by tho appearance of tho fire
flies, Tho grand finale camo in tho
singing of "Tho Cornhusker," by Rob
ert W. Stephens.

well staged and well rendered In
every respect. Mr. Todd acquitted

VESPER SERVICES YESTERDAY.
Only Few Students Present to Listen
to Excellent Program.
To say that the musical program
given at convocation yesterday wbb a
success is to be ultra-conservativo;
that.lt was excellent is certain. Tho
string quartet, composed of Edward
Walt, first violin; Ernest Harrison,
second violin; William Quick, viola;
and Lillian Eicbe,. 'cello, assisted by
Mrs. Ttaymond at the organ, rendered
several fine selections. Tho chorus,
or rather those of its members who
could find room on tho platform, con
tributed to the vocal part of tho pro
gram and clearly showed evidence of
long and careful training.
The number of students who at
tended, the evening vesper service
was sjlght In fact, the' audience was
scarcely as large as the chorus itself..
The hard work and trouble was not
compensated for in the way of at-
tendanoe. Professor Dann led the
Jed
services in. the absence of pr.Befsoy.
