Audiences go wild over the Schubert
of Pacific University. This
quartette, said to be the best in Oregon,
s composed of four trained singers of
reputation in the East as well as here.
The first bass, Professor Francis E.
Lloyd, is from the celebrated Princeton
college doable quartette, popular in all
the Atlantic states; the second bass,
Prolessor Henry L. Bates, is of the
Oberlin college glee club, that has sung
from New York to St. Louis; E. E. Lar-
more, the first tenor, is a student of Pa
cific university and formerly leader of
the Apollo club at Albany ; the second
tenor, J. Wheelock Marsh, is an Oregon
boy and formerly a nn-mber of the Phil

singers, far more will they delight in en
coring these handsome young men of
culture and refinement at the Congre
gational church Friday evening, March
1st, at the Longfellow Symposium.
