The group, started in 1914, have
played a great variety of concerts,
performing often enough to “hone
their musical edge, but not so often
as to cause academic catastrophe.”
The majority of their concerts

meetings at such college campuses
as Smith, Vasser, and Wellesley.
They have also had a two-week
booking at the Hotel Interconti
nental in Ponce, Puerto Rico.
The next issue of THE TWIG

instead of tlie usual Tliursduy,
therefore, the deadline for any let
ters, suggestions or other contri*
