Wide European Experience Gained
* Madame McGrew has sung before
many of the European royalties and
nas been “guested” at all of the big
theatres in Germany. “The system of
‘guesting’ artists is one of the most
oroadening things a singer can get,”
she explained. “In Germany there
are stock opera companies similar to
the stock companies in this country,
'ixcept that the standards are very
much higher over there. Artists under
contract with a company may bo ex

of a vacancy, which not only offers
good- pay to. the visiting artist but
adds opportunity for bettering one’s

life as is the life with your own com

to life,” she added. “I think the sys

“Singing,” Madame went on, ex
pressing with enthusiasm the love
which she has for it, “is a mental pro
cess. You can’t sing without brains.
That is why so many people who have
superior brains and inferior voices can
sing better than a natural singer. My
advice to students is to learn the A, B,
C’s of music. They are hard, tedious,
and not very beautiful, but without
them one cannot expect to have a
voice built on a firm foundation. The
voice is the most difficult instrument
in the body to take care of, for no
doctor can mend overstrained vocal
cords. They are like rubber bands
and when unduly pressed lose their
tautness and become slack, producing
a husky tone and destroying endur

TO OHIO STATES
Riccardo Clarke Now Learning
Role For “The Rose Maiden”
Riccardo Clark, the Spanish tenor,
who will sing in “The Rose Maiden”
and “Cavalleria Rusticana,” in the
coming June festival, and who is now
on the campus, says this is his first
extended visit to the United States.
He has sung in Cuba, Buenos Aires
and other South American countries
as well as Mexico City, where he re
ceived his training. He studied
there at the Conservatory of Mexico
City, and under Adrian Guichenne,
a French master. He prefers Italian
as he deslares all singers do, but has
sung some roles in Spanish. Car
men, La Tosca, La Boheme are some
of the operas in which he has sung
in Mexico City. A festival, such as
the university is now putting on, is
quite common in Mexican universi
ties he declares, and he has helped
in many of them. He also says that
while educated people here enjoy
good music, the peoples of South
America as a whole are much more
appreciative of the best music, al
though he admits that he has not
been here long enough to become
well acquainted with Americans.
Mr. Clark mode short visits to the
.United States, having appeared in
both concert and opera in El Paso,
San Antonio, Laredo and Los Angel
es. He expects to return from here
to Los Angeles where he will coach
in operatic roles. From there he
goes to New York for a short stay.
He has had some Very encouraging
letters from Pollaco, director of the
Metropolitan Opera, who knew him
in Mexico City. He then expects to
study in Italy for some time, al
though his plans are now rather in

TWO HUNDRED TAKE RIDE
Proceeds to Send Delegates to Sea
About two hundred men and women
enjoyed their annual Seabeck Ride
given Thursday night by the Y. M.
C. A. and Y. W. C. A. Three street
cars chartered for the occasion car
ried the students to Springfield where
a big bonfire was built near the river.
Several bushels of marshmallows
were toasted by the gallant swains
and a huge swing came in for a great
share of the popularity.
Joe Ingram with his banjo and
group of singers kept the crowd
amused with the latest songs while
another group kept a* choice collec
tion of ghost stories circulating.
The proceeds of the ride will .be
used to send representatives of the
local associations to Seabeck for the
annual conference this summer.
The last meeting of the trial prac
tice class was held at the Oregana

proprietor, invited the group for a
