"HANG DOWN YOUR HEAD"-Not following the advice they give to Tom Dooley in their hit
song, the Kingston Trio are flying high. The three, who recently received college degrees in
economics, got together while in school, discovered another common interest (folksinging) and gave
up thoughts of professions in economics for the present to take up bongo drums, banjos and guitars,
and sing their favorite songs before cheering audiences.

about a separate country in each
room. A student from that coun-
try will also be available to answer
questions, she explained.
Prof.'James Davis, director of
the International Center, will also

Fashion Show
To Feature
Suits, Coats
The public is invited to attend
the annual University of Michi-
gan Dames fashion show to be held
today at 8 p.m. in the Michigan
Union Ballroom.
The show, "Silhouettes in Fash-
ion," will feature suits and coats,
sportswear, casual and daytime
dresses and "after-five" dresses.
The spring fashions and acces-
sories will be modeled by "dames"
chosen from the club's glamor
Refreshments will be served after
the show, which is open to men
as well as women.
Tickets will be sold at the door,
or can be obtained by phone by
calling Mrs. William Drake at NO

campus where one member,. Dave
Guard, was doing graduate work
in economics.
The other members of the
group, Bob Shane and Nick Rey-
nolds, also hold degrees in econ-
omics which they received from
Menlo College last year.
The nearness of the two schools
brought the trio together and
their common interest in the mu-
sic of Hawaii, Tahiti, Mexico,
Spain, America and the -calypso
rhythms of the West Indies soon
prompted them to forsake the
field of economics to become en-
Since their discovery by a West
Coast publicist during an appear-
ance at the Cracked Pot, a Stan-
ford student gathering place, they
have performed in a number of
San Francisco night clubs and
have toured the country.
Critics and citizens, from Bing
Crosby to Admiral Chester W.
Nimitz, have acclaimed the pro-
ductions of the trio, who accom-
pany their renditions of the folk-
songs of many lands with guitars,
banjos, ukeleles and conga drums.
Of the trio's accomplishments
and goals, Guard has said "We

don't really consider ourselves
folksingers in the accepted sense
of the word, but it was our basic
interest in this kind of singing
that brought us together."
The diversity of their repertoire,
he added, is limited only by the
restriction that the songs must
have a "basic intelligent thought
and be founded in good taste."
All three young entertainers
grew up in atmospheres in which
folksongs and folklore figured pre-
dominantly. -
Guard and Shane were born in
Hawaii where they acquired much
knowledge of the traditional mu-
sic of-it and the surrounding Poly-
nesian islands. They learned to
strum ukeleles when they were
about seven years old, the same
time that they learned to swim.
They later mastered the art of
playing both banjo and guitar,
with Reynolds' talent on the
conga drums rounding out the
group's musical accomplishments.
Critics have often noted the
trio's enjoyment of the songs they
sing and have commented on the
pleasure they show in singing to-




Axelrod Notes Equal Health Plans



"It is hard to justify Latin
American public health students
coming to the United States to
study," Prof. Solomon Axelrod ad-
mitted yesterday.
Having recently completed a
five month tour of six south of the
border countries, the associate di-
rector of the Bureau of Public
Health Economics reported that
he found "the same facilities,
methods of instruction, courses
and in some cases course num-
bers" as in the United States.
Speaking at a Delta Omega lec-
ture, sponsored by the School of
Public Health, Prof. Axelrod noted
"the rather severe shortage of
public health personnel" in the
Latin American countries which
he visited.
Compares Figures
Reporting that there averages
one trained medical person for
every 2,500 citizens, he compared
this figure with the one to 730 ra-
tio in this country.
"The majority of public health
personnel in the Latin American
nations are concentrated in the
cities," Prof. Axelrod continued,
although governmental action to

improve the distribution has been
initiated. In Mexico, for example,
compulsory social service in rural
areas is required for graduation
by all medical students.

fulfills the

three-fold purpose of giving grad-
uate medical students rural prac-
tice, often supplying rural com-
munities with their only health
personnel and encouraging medi-
cal students to practice in rural
areas, Prof. Axelrod said.
. Chile Offers Bonus
Jn Chile, the government offers
a bonus to physicians who agree
to practice in other than urban
areas and gives special credit to-
ward promotion, he continued.
General hospitals are operated
by the Central Ministry of Health
in each of the Latin American
countries visited by Prof. Axelrod.
These hospitals are supplemented
by those built by social security
administrations, he r e p o r t e d.
There are also a small number of
voluntary hospitals, which operate
purely as welfare organizations.
Consequently, the concept of
local health services through local
health centers was introduced. "In
trying to duplicate the North
American system, only the conven-
tional services were offered," he
noted. Realizing their mistake,
treatment services were recently
