CONCERT MIDDLE OF MAY
.W.m-Be-No-Annual-TrlpA1t-EffoTts
Concentrated on Home
Program.
Tho homo concert of tho University
Gleo Club -will bo given about tho
middle of May. It Is very probable
that tho olub will not make a trip this
year, as has been tho custom In former
seasons Mrs. Raymond is drilling
the, sixteen .members regularly on
some exceptionally good music and a
high class program Is expected.
This Is the club's first year under
the Jurisdiction of tho University au
thorities and tho members are especi
ally desirous o.f showing up well under
the new plan.
Tho chlof reason for the failure to
make a trip UiIb spring was the lack
of preparation. A n f firt-
class glee clubs have, been on the road
and. tho local organization dldTiolrwIsh
to make an appearance until they we.ro
in tho best of condition.
Since giving up their idea of a trip
they hav.o concentrated all their ef
forts upon the homo program and It
gives promise, of being .one of the best
"ever attempted, The club has some
excellont material and! under tho lead
ership of Mrs. Raymond, nothing but
tfho best results .could be expected.
Tholee Club is conducted as any
other course in tho University and
credit Is given for tho work. .It affords
a splendid opportunity to any person
who has tho-lalent to obtain excellent
musical training. ' .
