CERAMICS CLASS-The architecture school offers classes in
architecture and in sculpturing as well as classes pertaining to
more general aspects of art. Most courses taken at the National
Music Camp carry the same credit as if they were taken on the
main campus.

By THOMAS KABAKER
The University runs a unique
summer program for students in
the music, education, literature
and architecture schools, Prof.
Allen P. Britton, director of the
University's program at the Na-
tional Music Camp at Interlochen
says.
The program is designed to en-
able students to earn credit to-
ward graduation, to provide special
training for teachers in fields in
which they are not trained, to
provide intense activity in per-
formance groups, and to develop

and demonstrate ways of using the
arts more effectively as a force for
enriched living and social good,
Prof. Britton said.
Activities 'Camp Within Camp'
The University's activities at the
camp are run through the summer
session, Prof. Britton explained.'
"Our activities at Interlochen," he
said, "comprise a camp within a
camp."
"The University's relation to the
rest of the camp lies only in the
number of faculty members in In-
terlochen's administration." Four
of the camp's nine trustees are

members of the University's facul-
ty.
Courses are offered in five areas:
music, art, dance, camp counselor
education and speech.
Courses Use Facilities
The music program provides in-
struction in all of the most import-
ant areas of music-performance,
teaching, composition, arranging,
literature and conducting. "The
courses are designed to be practi-
cal in nature and to make full
use of the facilities afforded by
the National Music Camp as a
whole," Prof. Britton said.
The central focus, of the Univer-
sity division program is on the
actual performance of music and
every attempt is made to provide
for the performance of all musical
compositions completed during the
eight-week session.
Leadership Program Developed
In order to meet the demand
for trained camp leaders, the edu-
cation school has developed a pro-
gram of intensive study, where the
presence of more than a thousand
campers makes possible a program
of leadership education "of unusu-
al scope and content," according
to Prof. Britton.
The camp counselor program in-
volves the election of five or six
hours of credit. Students admitted
to the program serve as assistant
counselors in the camp and receive
their room and board as payment
for their services.
The dance program offers in-
struction in ballet, choreography;
and dance notation, but greatest
emphasis is placed on modern
dance. "These courses, however,
do not carry credit at the Uni-
versity," Prof. Britton said.
Studio Course Featured
The architecture school's art
program centers in a course in
basic studio, which may be elected
for two or four hours credit. This
course deals with fundamental
problems in the practice of the
',isual arts. Noncredit instruction
and practice in ceramic-sculpture
is also available.
The music school-also offers such
non-credit programs as the Festi-
val Choir, an all-camp choral
group of several hundred voices
which presents several major
choral works each summer; the
Honors Orchestra, and the Honors
Band.
The speech department offers
an extensive program in which
students and teachers of speech
can devote themselves to improv-
ing their skills in public speaking,
theater, radio, television and oper-
etta. ,
Facilities for live and taped ra-
dio broadcasts are maintained for
the production of the numerous

Folksinger Bill Friedland will
give a lecture recital entitled
"Songs of the American Labor
Movement" at 8 p.m. today at the
Wesley Foundation.
Friedland worked for the Michi-
gan CIO as an International Rep-
resentative in the engineering de-
partment as a time study expert.
He has also worked for the CIO as
an assistant to the educational
director, and has done some work
in the bargaining field.
During this period he collected
songs written by the "Wobblies,"
the Industrial Workers of the
World and the workers of the CIO.
He also helped to compose songs
parodying the Communist Party
line," Intercooperative Council
secretary Luther Buchele, '59, said.
Accompanying himself on the
guitar, Friedland has put out two
albums on the Labor Arts label.
They are called "Songs for Sec-
tarians" parodying the Commun-
nist Party and "Songs of the Wob-
blies." This album was put on sale
two or three years ago, but is not
being pressed any more.
To Sing Labor Songs
He will sing selections from
these albums along with tradition-
al labor songs written by the CIO
during its formation in the 1930's
and by the Wobblies from 1905 to
1920. These songs extoll the vir-
tues of labor unions, praising soli-
darity and the power of the Union.
They also parody the capitalistic
way of life.
"Before each selection, Fried-
land will lecture on the back-
ground and history of the songs,
their relation to the labor move-
ment and the part they played in
the organization of the unions,"
Buchele said.
Writing Doctorate Dissertation
Friedland has received bache-
lor's and master's degrees in so-
ciology at Wayne University and
