Won Steinert Premium.

Miss Luella Totten of Pittsburg, Pa., was today announced as the winnter of the Steinert scholarship of the musical department at Yale University. The scholarship is worth $150 per year. Miss Totten came here last June to study composition under the direction of Prof. Sanford of the Yale musical department. She had previously made a reputation as a piano artist in Europe, and came to Yale merely for the purpose of studying composition. She was induced to try for the scholarship prize for piano playing, and was successful. Miss Totten will continue to attend the Yale musical school, taking up the course she started out to pursue. She played from Bach in the competition for the scholarship. Miss Totten did most of her studying at Vienna, where she was under the charge of several eminent instructors. Miss Totten's father is connected with the Carnegie iron works at Pittsburg.
