year, assembled at his home on Sev
enth avenue to express the apprecia
tion of the members for his work. Mar
cus Skarstedt, president of the chorus,
acted as spokesman and presented to
Prof. Bergquist a large upholstered
Morris chair as a token of esteem.
Prof. Bergquist responded briefly,
voicing his appreciation of the gift and
his pleasure in being the director of
the Wennerberg chorus. The chorus
sang a couple of selections with con
siderable enthusiasm and then depart
ed. The chorus has developed phenome
nally under the able leadership of
Prof. Bergquist. Although he came to
Augustana only last, fall, he has work
ed the organization up to a high state
of efficiency, and critics pronounce the
local glee club an exception among its
class. During the spring tour of the
chorus through Illinois, Iowa and Ne
braska, Prof. Bergquist's" directing
called forth much favorable comment.

directly she opens her mouth and

Very few voices are so naturally
bad that they will not succumb to

A pretty voice is a wonderful at
traction in a woman, and she who
would add to her charm a wondrous
fascination should cutivate a voice
