Prof. Glen’s Success in Seattle.
The pronounced success of Prof.
Glen’s music festival at the University
of Washington, in which a chorus of
one hundred and twenty-five voices
sang cantatas, accompanied by an or
chestra of thirty pieces, and to which
twelve hundred people listened and
waxed enthusiatic, reminds us of a
similar festival held at the University;
of Oregon two years ago.
This Oregon festival was lead by
one, I. M. Glen also; a chorus of one
hundred and twenty-five picked voices
from the University and city of Eu
gene, sang the same cantatas as did!
the Washington chorus; the orchestra
contained thirty pieces, twenty of
whom were members of Portland mu
sical organizations; and, in addition,
six soloists of note contributed to the
class of the occasion.
The Oregon festival, however, was
not heard by twelve hundred people,!
no, not even by eight hundred, in fact, I
in the two concerts given the number1
attending did not aggregate over six
hundred people. I he newspapers I
printed all the advanced reading mat
ter given them, as par agreement, but I
did not deam it potent to devote any
space after the festival to an appre
ciation of the work done by Prof. Glen
and his associates. A nice little deficit
of three hundred dollars was the only
present this 1. M. Glen got for his ef-J
forts to interest the students and citi
zens of Eugene in festival music. Is
it any wonder that the University,
Choral Society is now defunct, or that
Prof. Glen welcomed the chance to
leave his Alma Mater?
Some one said, a prophet is not ap
preciated in his own country; he would
have been correct had he generalized
the statement, for it is true that we
all underestimate our blessings. Just
why the students in Seattle should en
joy the highest of all forms of music,
ensemble work, and the students in
Eugene turn a deaf ear to it, is hard
to determine. We are extremely loth
to say that the Seattle students have
reached a higher stage of civilization,
musically, than we, anil yet a compar
ison of the two festivals points in
that direction. Probably our much
smaller population accounts for the
difference, or, perhaps, we are too
busy with the more material things of
life to heed the sublime. Whatever it
is. it is regretable, and reflects on us
as individuals and as an institution.
The question is now rampant about
the campus as ti whether the new
skating rink will be a fit place for
University students of both sexes to
frequent. Skating is a pastime many
people delight in and there is a real
desire among the students to use the
new rink, providing it be conducted
The question will be settled as are
all such question, by the public itself.
If the desired element frequent the
place, the undesired element will be
relegated to the background, but if
the undesired element is allowed to
set the standards for the place, the
other element will stay away. The old
exposition rink in Portland was a
good example of how a public place
can be conducted along desired lines
it got started right. It might be well
to start this one the same way.
