Wayne, estimated at $30,000, was left to a daughter, Dorothea H. Waples. the will revealed yesterday. Waples died Jan. 29. Mrs. Mary L. Mullen, widow of Edward M. Mullen, of 276 Owen ave., Lansdowne, received $30,000 of his $35,000 estate, with the balance go ing to a daughter, Edith E. Meacham. Recital Given By Elsa Hilger Elsa Hilger, only woman cellist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, gave her fifth annual recital last night in the Ethical Society auditorium before an overflow audience. Allison R. Drake assisted at the piano. Miss Hilger's unhackneyed program presented Beethoven's Variation on a Mozart Theme, the Boc-cherlni Concerto in B flat and Tchaikovsky's Roccoco" Variations. Another item of interest was the recitallsfs adapatlon of Bach's Cha-conne in D minor for violin alone, in itn first performance for 'cello. Although deftly transcribed and artistically played, it did not prove the happiest of choices for Miss Hilger's contribution to the Bach transcription parade, principally because the Chaconne' brilliance is changed to a darker, richer, but less effective tone on the 'cello. Miss Hilger played lively Beethoven variations and the Boccherini concerto with eloquence and beauty cf style, while the difficult Tchaikovsky variations were, in her hands (or fingers) considerably more than a iccnnicai luup. s.
