FISHER, Clerk. * MUSIC CONCERT PLEASES LARGE AUDIENCE FRIDAY A musical evening given by Prof. Robert Blair, director of the con servatory of music, Idaho Technical Institute, Miss Genevieve Gilbert, soprano and James Campbell, Jr., pianist, Friday evening at the high school aduitorium, was well attended and received with appreciatoin. Prof. Blair is a splendid tenor; it's hard to say when we have heard the good old Scotch favorites so ex quisitely rendered. His singing of "The Widow Malone" made a last ing impression. But the professor plays the violin very well, and so the aduience missed hearing many a tenor gem that is doubtless stored away in his vocal repertoire. Miss Gilbetr's rendition of "A Spring Flower'' was fine. The aria ''Hear Ye, Israe.l" from Elijah won our enthusiasm and also the "Jewel Song" from Faust. A bit of a serenade by Drdla, given on the violin by Pr.of. Blair as an encore, was beautifully played and long applauded. + H. F. SAMUELS APPOINTED H. F.
