Spring Fever
. Sunshine at lastand Salem's little world
shows the effect of it-cleaves have bursted their
" wrappings, blossoms are in profusion and there is a
lure in the air that calls to the beach, the mountains,
. the golf course, the tennis courts and the bridal
! paths. Salem folk are lucky who can within three
easy hours humor any one of these calls. Already
there are picnic parties, and on Friday the woman's
semi-finals will -be played off on the Salem golf
course. There are riding parties from six A. M. on
: , through the day, tennis "tournaments, weekend
5 beach parties, and for those who like the soft spring
flower air of the drawing room there is plenty of
interest. Parties last week were many. Mrs. Frank
Spears and Mrs. Russell Catlin entertained with two
afternoons; Mrs. F. E. Halik entertained with two
afternoons; Mrs. Hollis Huntington had a luncheon
"bridge, and the Willamette university May Queen
and her princesses were entertained with a formal
tea at the Alpha Phi Alpha sorority house. Add to
this the regular club parties, the plans for "good
music week," The Piper," and the auxiliary's work
for "Hospital day" it must be said there is "spring
fever" in the air true enough but socially it has none
of the elements of ennui so often attributed to it.

A program of unusual interest
was given Friday evening at the
Robert, studio by Miss Mae Miller,

splendid style by Miss Miller. Mr.
Patterson's other three numbers,

Road." hx Scott and "Schubert's

ciated by the audienee. The Sere
nade was especially beautiful with
both orran and niano accompani
ments played by Miss Miller and
Prof. Roberts. The closing organ
nnmlwr. "Polonaise in C Minor"
by Stebbins was a splendid climax
to the program. Both artists were
at their best throughout the eve
ning and graciously responded to

the "Polonaise in C Minor" in
