The trial of candidates for the freshman Glee Club was held last night, in Roberts Hall. The number of candidates was large, especially so on the 1st bass part. On the whole the material was above the average of freshman clubs, and under Mr. Thayer's supervision, the prospects for a good club are very bright.
