"What's going on in Ann Aror ? " "Nothing very exciting, ut we must all take hold and push he May Festival." "VVhy what's that, I never heard fit." The abové conversation was held ecently between one of Ann Arbor's most prominent and patriotic itizens, and the Argus. It only hows the truth of the assertion hat too much cannot be said with eference to coming events. The May festival will be given May i8th and i9th, by the University musical society and will be the greatest musical event ever given in the State of Michigan. Director A. A. Stanley has the record of making everything he undertakes a success and therefore his many friends beheve the May festival will surpass all former efforts of the University musical society. To begin with the trained chorps of 280 voices cannot be found in half a dozen cities in the United States. They will be assisted by the Boston Festival chorus and Emma Juch and Rose Stewart, sorpanos; Gertrude May Stein, contralto; Edward C. Towne, tenor; Max Heinrich, baritone; Arthur Friedheim, pianist; Fritz Giese, Violoncelloist. The citizens should wake up to what is in store for them, and talk and think May Festival. If a special effort is made by each one the great expense and outlay will be covered. The time is short in which to sell the remaining tickets and therefore let everyone be up and doing.
