Some of the comments on the con-certs given by the choir last year are interesting to review. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer had the following: "In an exacting program of song, sung a capella and without score, the Concordia Choir of Moorhead, Minne-sota, under the competent direction of Herman W. Monson, won the enthusi-astic acclaim of a large audience in Plymouth Church last evening. "The work of the choir exhales vir-ility, earnestness, and the enthusiasm of youth, for they are all young sin-gers. "The entire choir is to be congra-tulntcd on its work, its responsiveness and its apparent diligent following of scholarly direction." Other comments are: "It is refreshing to come across an organization like the Concordia Col-lege Choir."—George Benson in the Fargo Forum. 'Worth travelling a good many imfes to hear"—James Daviea in the Minneapolis Tribune. "Singing a colorful program of sacred music, members of the concert choir, who were presented at the Or-pheum Theatre last night, under the skillful direction of Herman W. Mon-son, proved themselves masters of harmony and choral technique.". — Grand Forks Herald. "Truly Mr. Monson has done a marvelous piece of work in welding his choir from the material at his dis-posnl."— Fargo Forum. "Under the direction of Herman W. Monson the Choir's rendition of sa-cred numbers was marked by a de-grce of perfection rarely found in singers of such limited experience. Considering the scarcity of even untrained material at the average small school and the limited time of preparation, the stage presence, pre-cision and intonation of the Moor-head Chorus leads one to believe that a miracle has been accomplished."— Pope County (Glenwood, Minn.) Tri-bune. Wednesday evening, May 16, wit-nessed the closing exercises of the scout-master ceremonies. Diplomas were presented to the scouts by Presi-dent J. N. Brown. The address of the evening was delivered by Mr. Trubbey, president of the Red River Council of Boy Scouts. This is the second graduating class of this kind that Concordia has pro-duced. The scout masters training class is indeed a privilege accorded to few institutions and that the privilege is appreciated is evidenced by the large number who registered for the course. This work has been carried on under the direction of L. C. Jamie-son, district executive of the Red River Valley Council. Every stu-dent has keenly felt the leadership and ability of Mr. Jamieson in secur-ing the coeporattcr. of Ms pupils. The ceremonials held Wednesday evening gave all Concordia students a glimpse into what boy scout work really means. Upon the presentation of diplomas each scout waited sol-cmnily with Indian blankets draped over his shoulders. As each received his document a thunderous chorus of "How, How", responded. This is the Indian sign of approval. The students receiving diplomas are: Lars Larscn, Reuben Huss, Ed-ward Torpet, Orris Johnson, Bud Buesing, Roald Johnson, Bertram Peterson, Knut Knutson, Sigrud Hef-ty, Herman Jacobson, Walter Peltola, Jack Ehlers, Herbert Larson, Julian Tollerud, Albin Fortney, C. P. Reed, Clarence Nelson, Palmer Halverson, Alvin Serkland, Ernest Johnson, Erl-inp: Anderson, Carl Aakhus, Alvin Ol-son, Arthur Ohnstad, Albert Utke, Thorwald Golberg, Carl Lien, Ernest Xybakken, Raymond Bangs, Harvey Christianson, Morris Jordheim, Pal-mer Stcen, Alfred Larson, Alf. Tjorn-ham, Theodore Grirosrud, Everett Ol-son, Donald Thompson. CHAPEL HOUR TURNED OV-ER TO SCOUT BOOSTERS On Thursday, May 17th, the Cha-pel program was in the nature of a surprise. President Brown turned the platform and the microphone over to the 1929 Scout staff for a booster pep-feat. Alvin Serkland, editor-in-chief for the Scout outlined the plans of the staff for a bigger and better triennial for next year. The book is to contain at least forty pages more of material than before, there being a number of newer organizations at the school and a considerable amount of space being devoted to alumni, pres-ent Seniors in particular. He then called on Loyd Bilden who pointed out that the Seventeenth of May besides being a red letter day in Norway's history was also tag day for the Scout at Concordia. Dean Rasmussen' s(>oke briefly proving that a Scout makes an unusally good investment. Herman Jacobson, speaking for the Seniors, expressed his firm belief that the 1929 Scout would be the best book published for many years. On Wednesday evening and all day Thursday, May 16 and 17, an intensive campaign was staged by the business force among students and faculty for the purpose of estimating the amount of prospective sales. The tag-girls were: Alice Midgaarden, Elizabeth MeCracken, Esther Lunsetter, Marie Grimsrud, Doris Olson, Elsie Branae, Bcmice Olson, and Nina Friestad. Mr. Serkland states that the theme of the Scout has been chosen and the engraving contract let. He hints of a surprise feature in the 1929 book. Pictures are being taken and in gen-eral the work is progressing at a pleasing rate. FINAL COMMENCEMENT PLANS ANNOUNCED Hon. Keo. P. Homnes of Crosby, N. Dak., to Be Commencement Speiiker. Rt. Rev. I. T. Aastad of Detroit Lakes to deliver Baccalaureate Sermon. Clara Duea Presents Student Recital President and Mrs. Brown- Entertain Faculty and Seniors On Tuesday evening, May 15th, President and Mrs. Brown entertain-ed the Faculty and Seniors at a ban-quet. After a bounteous three course dinner had been served, an interesting program was presented. Dr. Brown presided very ably as toast-master. Musical numbers on the program con-sisted of a vocal solo by Kathryn Tweeten and a vocal duet by Gladys Johnson and Thelma Hov accompani-ed by Helen Hatlelid. Toasts were given by Miss Topping, Professor Wollan, Ernest Nybakken and Gud-run Solom. The evening contributed much in strengthening the bond of friendship already exisitng between the Faculty and the Seniors. Dr. and Mrs. Brown are to be congratulated on making this event a happy one that will long be remembered by the guests. ELIAS STENERSON RETURNS TO NEW YROK President Brown received a postal card announcing that Mr. and Mrs. Elias Stenerson had arrived in New York on May 15 and would return to tkeir home in Crookston, within a Miss Clara B. Duea presented four of her pupils in recital Monday after-noon, May 14th, in the college audi-torium. We are only sorry that so many should miss such a fine pro-gram. Borghild Torvick opened the program by playing very fluently with clear, clean-cut, firm touch, Bach's—Prelude and Fuguetta in C Major. Later on in the program she played three other selections, Dvor-ak's Silhouette op. 8. No. 4 in which she showed pood octave work; the Nightingale by Liszt, a very charming number with its bird like introduc-tion, airy runs, and other flourishes about the melody. Her outstanding number was Chopin's "Nocturne in B Major," in which she interpreted very beautifully, with deep, full tone, and poetic feeling. Gladys Johnson played ably, the rhythmic Country Dance No. 1, by Beethoven. In the Sibelius, Valse Trieste, she showed her ability in carrying the beautiful mcl<;dy interwoven with the chords, as well as playing heavy chords and oc-tavis. Schumann's, In the Evening and the Valse in A flat op. 42, by Choplin followed, played by Ruby Ren-d: ihl. She displayed beautiful tone quality in the first number, and play-ed with poise. The brilliant and dif-ficult Valse with its intricate pas-sages was well played. Miss Rendahl also gave Lynn's Summer Rain, which was very interesting with its light staccato work making the persistent tapping of the rain; and D'Albert's Gavotte and Musette in D Minor, which she played with much abandon, working up to a good climax, and then a return to the first stated mel-v dy. Marie Grimsrud played a group ul' three numbers, Liszt's difficult Cantique Df Amour with its lovely melody, sometimes interwoven with heavy chords, at times rolled chords, and again—arpeggios; Grieg's de-lightful, Papillon—or Butterfly, with its clear, smooth runs, which she in-terpreted Very well; and Scott's Danse Negre, which was her outstanding number. She played this number with much poise and abandon. The num-ber is rather perpetual in style, and with its persistent melody, was very well rendered. Sixty-four students of Concordia Collegtf will receive their Bachelor of Arts degree at the Commencement ex-ercises held on June 5. Raymond Bangs of Landa, N. Dak., and Ange-lint1 Nutteland of Oklee, Minn., have been named Valedictorian and Salu-tatorian, respectively, of the class of 1928. .

L'Echo de Paris Proves Highly Interesting The style show sponsored by the McCall Pattern Company, under the auspices of dcLcndrecie's Department Store, Fargo, North Dakota, was held at the college chapel on Wednesday, May 10, for the students of the Moor-head State Teachers College, Moor-head High School, and Concordia Col-lege. The display included afternoon and street frocks, children's dresses, eve-ning gowns, and a bridal gown. The styles shown were duplicates of Pa-risian models designed by such emi-nent French designers as Patou, Louiseboulangcr, LcLong, and Tho-massin. Mrs. Alice B. Athey of New York Jity supervised the style show, the models being Fargo girls. SENIORS SECURE AT-TRACTIVE POSITIONS 40 GRADUATING STUDENTS HAVE BEEN PLACED PHYSJGS DEPARTMENT PUBLISHES REPORT Dr. K. O. Lee Contributes to Lit-erature in the Field of Spectroscopy Of the seniors who are prep'inner ;o into teaching a large majority have secured attractive positions. The average salary received will be about the same as that received by the class which went into teaching last year. The percentage of those who have obtained positions at this time is *-:.Hy as great as the percentage which had secured such pasitions at the corre-ponding date a year ago. The ap-intment bureau reports that it has his year received more reports of vacancies and requests for applicants for positions than in any preceding year. short time. Mr. and Mrs. Stenerson have been on a tour through Northern Africa, the Holy Land, and Europe. A. Dr. K. O. Lee, head of the Depart-ment of Physics at Concordia College has just published a report of his experimental findings in the field of spectroscopy. The article appears in the Astrophysical Journal of March 1928 under the title of "Wave Lengths in the Secondary Spectrum of Hydro-pen." Doctors H. G. Gale and G. S. Monk of the University of Chicago are coauthors of the report, having contributed by making a few additions to the original findings of Dr. Lcc. With a specially constructed vacuum discharge tube devised by Dr. Lee, wave lengths of 30G4 lines from the ultra-violet to the infra-red were measured. Of these lines 95 were ob-tained by means of an interferometer and wei'e measured to an accuracy of one part in 3-4 million. The second-ary spectrum of the hydrogen was then photographed with a 21-foot concave grating in a Rowland Mount-ng. From these plates the wave-lengths of the remaining 29G9 lines were determined by interpolation be-tween the 95 hydrogen lines measur-ed with the interferometer. It is believed by the authors that ho table of wave lengths which they have prepared will be of assistance '.n the further theoretical analysis of this particular spectrum. TENNIS PLAYERS ARE SELECTED The Cobber netmen who survived the elimination matches this spring are: D. Schultz, C. Nelson, A. Serk-and P. Enger. Of these four men one will bo eliminated through a series of individual matches and three will be sent to participate in the State Conference meet at St. Johns. Concordia will enter men in both singles and doubles. These racket men will be the first tennis team to carry the name of Concordia into an official state" tennis meet. Student Conducts Service. On Sunday morning, May 13th, Mr. Arthur Wigdahi had full charge of the English services at the Swe-dish Lutheran Church in Moorhead. He delivered a sermon on "Prayer." Most of the seniors who have not yet accepted appointments are being favorably considered by school offi-cials with whom they have placed ap-plications. Among the ^ ft have not accepted appointments are some of the strongest students in the class, which fact gives ample assur-ance that they will soon be elcted into desirable positions. Indications are, therefore, that the entire class of seniors seeking teach-ing positions will, as in past years, succeed in getting appointments. In viuw of the reported oversupply of teachers, this prospect at the present time is most reassuring to the mem-bers of the class. Below arc listed seniors with the positions they have accepted since April 27 up to the time of going to press. Raymond Bangs—Courtney, N. D. Harvey Christenson — Audubon, Minnesota. Gladys Dahlc—Hanlontown, Iowa. Myrtle Hanson—Sentinel Butte, North Dakota. Alvina Juclson—Ulen, Minnesota. Ksther Lunsetter—Alvarado, Min-nesota. Helen Malvey—Hitterdahl, Minne-sota. Laurette Meland—Ulen, Minnesota. Dorothy Mclvey—Eureka, South Dakota. Alvin Olson, Mentor, Minnesota. Margaret Ovrebo—Mahnomen, Min-nesota. Myrtle Qualley—Braham, Minneso-ta. Donald Thompson—Stephen, Minn. Ingcborg Pederson—Hazen, North Dakota. Adeline Fischer—Hawley, Minn. Cecelia Barry—Campbell, Minn. Kathryn Tweeten—Pelican Rapids, Minnesota. Carl Aakhus—Strandquist, Minn. Elvida Iverson—Cogswell, North Dakota. 21 Seniors as announced in the April 27 issue were placed at that time. These additional 19 bring the total to 40. Summer Reunions Are Being Planned The Student Forum met Friday, May 18, to discuss the matter of Cob-ber summer reunions. A committee was organized by Deward Schultz, President of the student body, to de-cide on the time and place of these gatherings. This committee in turn will elect committees to arrange for these reunions. A suggestion was made that two reunions be held at the most convenient places in North Da-kota and Minnesota flpscpectively. NO. 17. INTERESTING PROGRAM IS FEATURED DR. KANE IS PRINCIPAL SPEAKER AT CAP AND GOWN FESTIVITIES Dr. Thomas F. Kane gave the prin-pal address at the Senior Cap and Gown Day exercises held on Tuesday May 16th. To the tunes of the processional played by the Concordia college band, the Seniors slowly marched from the library to the chapel. After the In-vocation offered by Rev. C. B. Ylvis-aker the Senior Quartette, made up of Kathryn Tweeten, Esther Longren, Thelma Hov and Gladys Johnson, sang a selection "The Rosary" by Ne-vins, Mr. Ernest Nybakken, Senior class president, presented the traditional key of knowledge; saying that with it goes hard work and industry, the means of attaining knowledge which is power. This was responded to by Theodore Grimsrud who received the key on behalf of the Juniors. Mr. Nybakken also presented the class-banner to Prof. J. H. Hjclmstad. Prof, and Mrs. Hjelmstad, counselors for the past two years, and Mr. and Mrs. Nystul, counselors for the first two years, were presented with pillows as mementoes from the class. The class memorial included a pledge of $5000 to the Endowment Fund and a latter pledge of $1500. Mr. Nybak-ken presented these gifts to the school and Pres. Brown responded on the part of the school. The class oration was delivered by Miss Ragna Brusen. She developed her oration about the motto, "Climb though the Rocks be rugged." In a few well chosen remarks Pres. Brown introduced Dr. Thomas F. Kane welcoming him as a repre-sentative from a friendly neighboring university, ings from the University of North Da-kota and congratulated Concordia College on its recent recognition in educational circles. In his address Dr. Kane noted the signifiance of the cap and gown, carrying with them the privileges of the guild of scholars and the inspiration of those who have worn them down through history. The system of degrees also has a his-torical background. Today the B. A. degree is an evidence of the ability of the candidate as well as an assur-ance of his intentions. The challenge of the degree is to prepare for use-fulness of the highest order. The importance of work and the character-istic of initiative was stressed. The value of education in a liberal arts college, with its ideals of gain-ing knowledge that will help one to live better, was shown. Dr. Kane also showed the advantages of a Christian education. In conclusion he told the class of 1928, "So in completing your college work think of the privileges, the inspiration, the challenges of the IJ. A. decree and of the principles of C. C. There is no greater principle of life than love of God and devotion to one's fcliowmcn, and the advance-ment of His kingdom among men." The morning session was brought to a close with a selection by the quartette and the Recessional played by the band.
