Disorderly Conduct

BETHLEHEM, Pa. — (II')—Irv-j
i“ff Siegel, one of sovon Lehigh I
university students arrested by local
police last fall after the football
game with Lafayette, and charged
with disorderly conduct, won in an
appeal to a higher court. The ease
was dropped for lack of evidence
that Siegel had acted in an unto-!
ward manner. He was the only one
of the seven to appeal his case. All
seven had been fined in police
Following Seigel’s victory, the
Brown and White, university under-1
graduate newspaper, vigorously at
tacked the Bethlehem police in its
editorial columns.

Refinement and Delicate Phrasing
Features Recital of John Emmel
.Enwrapped solely in his music
and playing with the deep feeling,
spontaneity, graceful technique, and
delicate phrasing of a true artist
John Clifton Emmel, returning to
the campus after an absence of two
years, received encore after encore
from the small crowd which at
tended his recital in the music audi
torium last night.
There was nothing mechanical
about Mr. Emmel's playing; he
seemed to play straight from the
soul, and painted pictures in music
as surely and as plainly as an artist
at liis easel.
Mr. Emmel displayed flawless
technique which# embodied® a deli
cacy of touch ihgt seemed ^is light
i as feathers, and, .while not flashy,
. was graceful, easy, and finished.
He has a world of poise and quiet,
dignity and plays with perfect ease.
As a whole the program was re
plete with beautiful and dreamy
, melodies and was extremely refined.
While all of the selections were
perfectly rendered the real climax
of the program came in the last
selection “Ritual Eire Dance” by
Do Falla. This number was per
fectly rendered and thrilled the lis
teners with its wierd, barbaric, and
menacing atmosphere.
The first number “Nina” by Per
. golosi contained a dreamy andj
haunting melody, It was charac
terized by almost perfect. phrasing.
“Variations in F Minor” by JIadyn
was replete with light capricious
trills and was elusive and echo-like.
The “Sonata in A Major” by
Schubert was presentel with won
derful interpretation. Starting with
a smooth and dreamy melody, it
soon changed 1o a heavier and raor#
accented rhythm, only to finally
merge into a faster and spirited
tempo which was suggestive of
The next selection “Preludes”
from Chopin was, •nyth the excep
tion of the Fire Ritual Dance,^ the 1
highlight of the urogram. - It poscss
ed excellent shading’of accents and
variations'"and in the latter part it
was a marvelous interpretation
which resembled the howling of the
The “Reflets dans L’eaux” by Dc
lntssy was good. It was predomin
ated by a haunting melody and was
played with exquisite tone. The
“Scherzo Valsc” by Cliabrier was a
‘galloping’ piece and was rendered
with lightness and vivacity.
The concluding number “Ritual
Fire Dance” by De Falla was, as
already mentioned, the climax of
the entire program. It was pre
dominated by a heavy rhythm and
barbaric, tone, and was wierd, thrill
ing and hectic.

Miss Morrow Proves
Gracious, Charming,
Clever and Lively
COLUMBUS, Ohio.—(IP)—“Anne
Morrow was always an interesting
conversationalist and never failed to
be clever, gracious, and charming,”
according to Miss Dorothy C. Bow
den, graduate student at Ohio State
university, who attended Smith col
lege before coming here.
“She wasn’t particularly inter
ested in social functions,” Miss Bow
den said, “but was deeply enthusi
astic about her academic subjects.”
Miss Morrow, daughter of Dwight
M. Morrow, ambassador to Mexico,
recently announced her engagement
to Col. Charles A. Lindbergh.
Miss Bowden continued:
“I livod in Northrup house, the
same house in which Miss Morrow
lived. She occupied a room on the
fourth floor, which was always at
tractively decorated and furnished.
“Anne has largo bright eyes. Her
hair is dark, long and wavy. She
usually dashed about the campus
without a hat. Her favorite subject
was Lnglish.”
“Jane’s Scotch friend gave her
his picture for Christmas.”
“You don’t say—was it good?”
“She doesn’t know, she hasn’t
had it developed yet.”

The play received much comment,
according to Mrs. Rudolf Ernst, as
sistant professor of English and in
structor in playwriting, and for
some time was considered strongly
for second place. The difficulty of
the setting for amateur production,
she pointed out, was the deciding
factor that gave her first honorable
mention rather than second honors.
The scene of the play is a band of
pirates in the hull of an old ship,
very realistic add spectacular in
its setting.
Mrs. Ernst was pleased with the
outcome of the contest, especially
because Henry Vail, manager of the
Duffy Players in Portland and one
of the judges of the. contest, sug
gested that the play bo turned over
to Fanchon and Marco to be pro
duced as a vaudeville skit. “I am
