ing room waa in green and white. Mrs.
Lewis and Mrs. Rhodes served the con
fections. This last hss been a very busy week
for those interested in the production of
. the operetta, "The National Flower."
Instrumental rehearaals under the able
direction of Professor Hagenow, fancy
drill-coaching by Professor Richeson,
and practice of the curtain-raiser, JDa
Maurier'e "Trilby," with Miss Anderson
as director, have been the ordinary pro
ceedings of the past week. The perform
ance, it is safe to eay, will be very pleas-
- ant in its variety, as the following argu
ment of the operetta shows. Candidates
for the position of National Flower have
been summoned to appear before judge
and jury, there to plead each one his
own case. After giving reasons for de
siring to be the National Flower, each
aspirant remains to listen to the stories
of his rivals. Occasionally weeds stray
in, to the horror of the assembled flow
ers, and consternation is great when an
onion chances to look in upon the scene.
The jury which, will happily illustrate
the way judicial affairs will be disposed
of when women are eligible to'the office
acting under instructions from the
judge, endeavors to decide in favor of
the most useful as well as the most
baautiful flower. Uncle Sam volunteers
some valuable information, after which
the flowers express their hearty approval
of the one chosen, and the contest ia
happily and satisfactorily ended. The
date for the rendition of the operetta is
set for the thirtieth of this the month
of April. The ladies of the Aid Society
hope that the general public will patron
ize this entertainment. The money
raised will be expended largely to house
the homeless and feed the hungry.

The last one of the unusually brilliant
season of concerts by the active mem
bers of the Matinee Musicale was given
last Tuesday afternoon at university
memorial hall. It was open to the gen
eral public and the large room was
filled by an audience composed mostly
of listeners from outside the club. It
waa a request program and the perform
ers were selected from among the club's
best. The chorus showed the effect of
Mrs. Raymond's training. At the end
ct the season Mrs. Raymond's choruses
are invariably perfect. As a constant
steady musical influence Mrs. Raymond
has been and is of inestimable musical
inspiration to Lincoln. Her influence is
like the sunshine so constant and so
stimulating we forget to be grateful for
it until a fortnight's clouds shut the
sun out. The final number, Mendels
eoha's Ride of the Elves was beauti
fully shaded and sung as by one many,
toned flexible great voice. The solo
ists were loudly and insistently applaud
ed but according to the club's custom
did not respond to encores.
The club has still an artist recital in
anticipation and the president's recep
tion for May 13, before its members dis
perse for the summer.
