Will Appear et the Opera, Hou ae
Saturday Night. De
Great interest is being manifested
in Grants Pass in the appearance of
the University of Oregou Glee and
Mandolin Clubs next Saturday even
ing at the Opera House. From the
time the curtain goes np on the first
number till the end of the sketch
which closes the program there is
something doing all the time. When
you get SO college boys together in
a concert something has got to hap
pen and tilings certainly do happen
in tlio coming concert. With old col
lege songs, mandolin mnsio, funny
stunts, killing monologues, solos, late
song hits, and catchy instrumental
music, the audience has no ohance for
a breath. The progiam opens with a
group of two songs to "Oregon,"
which are sung with all the spirit
and patriotism of University of Ore
goo Students. One of these songs,
''Hail to Oregon" was composed this i
year by Mr. Henderson of the club, i
and has already become a favorite in
the hearts of the boys. The program
then proceeds with Mandolin Clubj
selections, a monologue by Kelly, a j
solo by Billy Neal and the Glee Club, j
more Mandolin Mnsio, then a solo by i
Prof. I. M. Glen. This number de-
serves special mention. Prof. Glen i
is known all through this rart ot the
state on account ol his excellent work
in connection with the Chaotaaquas
at Athalud. His solo will be the
Prologue to Pagliaci, a number which
shows off his rich baritone voice in
creut srvlc lie will doubtless hn
welcomed by his ninny friunds in a
most enthusiastic manner.
Roy Kelly then comes on with a
sliriekingly funny monologue. His
work Is of the droll sort that takes the
