The clubs wiil be the first since Amherst, two years ago, and should receive a a large audience. The Hoosack Falls Massachusetts, Times says: "The Glee club has evidently been carefully trained, and their songs were all bnght and catchy. The Mandolín club, which was augmented by a flute and 'cello, was a favorte from their first number, and the only criticism that could be made is that they did not appear often enough. The Banjo club, composed of sixteen men, played well together, and the selection "Mardi Gras Patrol" was above the average of the music usualy rendered by such organizátions; and special mention should be made of. the medley from "Wang," by the Glee club, and the duet and chorus from the "Fencing Master," by the Glee and Mandolín clubs. One does not usually expect any very high order of musical excellence from these college clubs, but last night's concert was an exception, and shows what can be accomplished by good leadership and hard work.
