One Month European Tour
Slated for Men's Glee Club
Group To Finance Performances in London,
Edinborough with Concert, Record Savings

The Michigan Men's Glee Club
will be touring Europe this sum-
mer, James Shortt, faculty ad-
visor to the Glee Club announced
The administration has ap-
proved the four week concert
tour, which will extend primarily
through northern Europe, he told
the group at a meeting last night.
Self-Financed Trip
The trip will be financed 1 y the
Glee Club itself with no support
from the University, he explained.
Since its first and only trip to
Europe in the summer of 1955,
the Club has been saving as much
money as it can, planning for the
opportunity to make a second

as the combined centennial con-
cert with the Indiana Hoosiers,

To Assembly
Two new officers have been ap-
pointed to the Executive Board of
Assembly Association.
Barbara Bashara. '62, is the new
public relations chairman, replac-
ing Beata Jorgenson, '59. As chair-
man, Miss Bashara will be in
charge of publishing the annual
Assembly Association booklet giv-
en to entering students.
The newly appointed social
chairman is Elizabeth Davis, '60.
She has replaced Joan Comiano,
'61, who is now second vice-presi-
dent of the Board.
Miss Davis will coordinate the
social chairmen in the women's
residences and also plan the social
activities of the executive board.

and through sales of their records
the men have raised enough
money for the proposed tour.
Group Limited
However, due to the lack of a
great deal of money and also to a
Glee Club policy that not more
than 45 men may accompany a
tour at once, only 40 out of the
82 men in the Glee Club will be
going on the tour. Prof. Philip
Duey, of the music school and
director of the Glee Club, and an
accompanist will tour with the
Their first appearance will be
at an International Choral Festi-
val in Wales on July 10. Follow-
ing this, the group will perform
in London and Edinborough.
They will then continue on to
Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Norway
and Sweden, perhaps stopping ir
Finland, then will travel back
through northern Germany.
May Stop in Paris
Shortt expressed the hope that
the Glee Club will be able to stop
in Paris as well as the World'
Fair in Brussels if it is going on
at that time.
Over half of the 16 to 20 con-
certs that the Club will perform
in Europe will be given on Univer-
sity campuses. "Because Europe
has a very large summer school
program, this will be an excellent
opportunity for the men to meet
the students there," Shortt re-
marked. The rest of the concerts
will be given on a community
The men to accompany the tour
will be chosen on the basis of
length of time they have per-
formed with the Glee Club, their
singing ability and their extra-
curricular contributions to the
