University House Hits Top
Few Student Tickets Still
Available for Ballet Tonight
A limited number of student tickets are still available for
the San Francisco ballet to be presented tonight at 8:15 in
McArthur court, announced Horace W. Robinson, educational
activities manager yesterday afternoon. “All reserved seats
have been sold,” Robinson stated, “but general admission
tickets may still be purchased.”
Acclaimed as one of the finest ballet groups in America, the
San Francisco ballet is composed of 26 artists, directed by
William Christensen, who formerly headed a ballet troupe in
Portland. On this first stop of the company’s annual nation
wide tour, they will offer three different numbers. The first
will be the second act of “Swan Lake,” with music by Tschai
kowsky. The second number to be presented is the perennial
favorite “In Old Vienna,” by Johann Strauss. The concluding
number on the program will be the popular “Nutcracker Suite”
of Tchaikowsky.
No seats will be sold on the main floor, in order to give ail
members of the audience a good view of the dancing. All Uni
versity students will sit in the bleachers and the general public
will be seated in the west balcony.

Battle Waged,
Turner Freed
Despite the valiant efforts of

revealed: Alpha Phi’s “meatball
five” selected Marylin Moore as
their “favorite dish”; the “biscuit
bouncing six” of the Chi Omega
selected Pat Davis as their most
savory dish; and the “hash-slinging
six” of the Theta’s tapped Nancy
Rivenlmrgh as the most select item
on their menu.

Three Seniors Present Recital;
Expressive Program Enjoyed
Three talented senior piano students, Betty Jones, Elizabeth
Schaefers, and Alfhild Wahl, presented a varied and well
polished recital in the music school Monday evening. Miss
Schaefers opened the program with the Mozart “Pastoral with
Variations” and played it with a musician’s feeling for the
lovely tneme ana gay urnameiaa
tion. She followed with “Praelud
ium” by Macdowell. De Falla’s
“Serenata Andaluza” was played
with spirit as Miss Schaefers
seemed to thoroughly warm up to
her keyboard.
Miss Jones played Bach’s exact
ing “Italian Concerto” with accu
rate fingers, making up somewhat
for a lack of feeling sensed espe
cially in the first and third move
ments. Agility on the keyboard
was shown by Miss Jones in her
treatment of the Chopin “Ber
ceuse.” Poulenc’s “Toccata” was
well suited to Miss Jones’ rather
dry but accurate style and she pre
sented a puckish type of humor
and built up to a colorful climax
in this work.
Chopin’s Nocturne
All the subtlety and delicacy of
Chopin’s “Nocturne No. 27, No. 1”
was well brought out by Miss
Wahl. Miss Wahl played “Two
Arabesques” by Debussy with this
