When asked how to get there she tells them to fol!ow their nose. This is not a very clear direction. However, the Moo n F a ir.y appears with her attendent moonbeams and offers to take Geraldine to the Goblin Fair. They start off merrily. Scene II The scene ch a nges to the market place, where things are on display for sale. The mo;t conspicuous is a ' big cheese which has been left out a ll night in order to be ready · for the fair · in the morning. The mice take advantage of this to assemble for a grand breakfast. They take so m uch time rejoicing over this . fact that they are frightened away 6y the approach of the Goblins. Then comes Geraldine with her h o meless kitten. She negotiates with the Goblins for the exchange of the kitten. The lit tle Gobli.n fin ally places a majic "M" on her spelling bo ok which will enable h e r to _spel! any word she desir~s.

SENIOR VIOLIN I RECITAL GIVEN.. Otto Boellstorff is Presented in Recilal, May 22, in College ~ uditorium

I

A splendid student recital was presented b.y Otto Boellstorff, violinist, , last Friday evening in the college auditorium. Mr. Boellstorff displayed, throughout his entire program, a very artis- 1 t ic intel'pret ati.o n and fine t.ec hnic j His carefulness in phrasing should receive par.tlcular mention, as should I also, his tone qruality which was very ~ sympathetic and true even on the · highest tones. ! The highlight on the program was : undoubtedly reached the Concer- 1 to, which, with its power a.nd bril- 1 liance; throughly pleased the audi- 1 ence, who responded with most vociferous applause. I June Brickell, Mr. Boellstorff's ac- ' companist, deserves much praise for the success of the recital. She at all . times played the. accompaniments . in i a most sympatheic manner. · - i
