From the the Chicago Tribune. Yellow and blue was the prevailing color at Central Music hall last night. The man who didn't wear those colora got off in a corner by himself, and the wotnen who were present would have given up their Easter bonnets rather than the yellow and blue. The Michigan Universify Glee Club sang, and yellow and blue are the collors of the college. The blue, if we are to beiieve the words of the college gong, must be in the eyes of a maid, and the yellow in her hair. The gong was pretty, and was sung in true college style. " Romeo and Juliet," however, seemed to please the audience as much as anything. It was a clever conceit, the Romeo being about a foot ghorter than the Juliet, and it waa excellently done by Mesare. Walter and Crane, and the club. The music was pretty and wel! sung, and that brought out the burles que features the more. Aiter Romeo had ünished his solo and Juliet began to sing in a key about 13 Fahrenheit lower, it brought down the house. It was ludicrous in the extreme, and two encores were given. For one of them the old " Spanish Guitar" was sung, and it was so well done that it called for a second encoré. Mr. Cole's yödel also called for an encore - in fact every solo had to be followed by another, and probably would have elicited a third it' the Ann Arbor boys had not insisted in obtruding their collega claes on the rest of the audience. The whistling of Mr. Harria was one of the features of the evening. He is a remarkable whistler, and in addition to whistling a solo he whistled accompaniments to several of the Bongs. The other soloists were Mr. Brigga, Mr. Green and Mr. Jaraeson.
