Friends of Miss Clara Walsh will be

petitive examination for one of the
prised scholarships of the Academy of
Fine Arts in that city, one of the most
noted art schools in the country, and
this week word reached Lincoln that she

The students of the university conser
vatory of music gave their first recital

sight. The soloists of the evening were
Mablo Metcalf , Miss Lizzie Humphrey,
Miss Imogene Clinton, Miss Gertrude
Wright, Miss Kate Joyce, Miss Adelaide
Thomas, Miss Eugenia Getner, Miss
May Crawford and little May Belle Hag
enorf, who as usual distinguished her-
telf by her sweet unconsciousness of
herself as well as by her excellent mas
try of her violin. Little Miss Hagenow
w not a prodigy, nor does she pose for
one, but she has the energy and con
scientiousness and simplicity which can
do great things in this world. She is
by no means a phenomenon, but a thor
oughly wholesome, childish child with a
really remarkable knowledge of music.
The concert on Wednesday night dis
appointed many because they had ex
pected too much. Critics who heard the
Doveys einging duets in a email parlor
for got that three feet or so of humanity
left to itself on a stage with thirty-six
feet above it and twenty feet on each
side of it must make a big noise to keep
out of the microscopic class. Ibe pro
gram was somewhat to blame for the
disappointment. It waa written for ma
ture throats and lungs. The children's
charm is in their youth, seriousness and
simplicity. They are remarkable as
children, not as singers. Wednesday
night proved that their achievement is
all ahead of them. They must keep to
childhood's games and studies for years
to come and let no silly and uninspired
prophet Hatter them into thinking their
not-impossible victories won. Tbey
sung songs that stretch Melba's throat.
They did not sing the songs they could.
The program was pretentious, impossi
ble. Not a single spontaneous burst of
applause rewarded their efforts because
they scorned to do the only hing they
can do now. It was an unusually fine
audience, discriminating, and at the
same time charitable. Their applause
was always complimentary except when
Miss Terry sang a selection from Elijah.
From the first the audience was not dis
appointed in Miss Terry, only in the
sweet little children, for whom older
people, who ought to have known better,
had made defeat inevitable.
