utors Educate, Recreate ii;



Kids and University students
can be seen reading, writing,
working on the child's academic
problems, visiting museums, draw-
ing, laughing and talking-toge-
ther. These are just a few of the
diversified activities of tutors and
tutees participating in the Tuitor-
ial and Cultural Relations Project.
Tutoring is done on a one tutor
to one tutor basis. Usually, the
tutor and child meet once a week
for about three hours. At the be-
ginning of each semester, new
tutors are given an orientation

to the program. During these per-
iods, teaching techniques, tutoring
methods ,and information about
places of interest are discussed.
Graduate students from the psy-
chology department and related
social science fields have worked
with the program as advisors. All
tutoring and advising is done on
a voluntary basis.
Last year, 250 University stu-
dents tutored in Ann Arbor. The
project has the use of 13 churches
and Jones School, a local activi-
ties center. Because tutoring is
done on an individual basis, each

"By using these methods, the
children will be able to learn about
cultures besides their own. A bet-
ter understanding of other coun-
tries and other peoples will give
the children a broader outlook
and a greater appreciation of
people who have different cus-
toms and way of living. This is a
very real part of our program
since the lack of understanding of
people who are different is the
root of many of the problems of
cultural separation in this country
today," commented Dick Sleet,
director of the Tutorial project.
Funds for the project come from
several sources. Last year, two stu-
dent organizations, the Student
Government Council and Phi
Sigma Sigma donated money. The
tutors held a bucket drive in the
winter and a jazz concert in the
summer. The project also receives
a research grant in connection
with the psychology department.
This is used to meet the costs of
staff salary and equipment.
Some group activities are also
arranged especially in Willow Run
and Sumpter where all the stu-
dents are tutoring at the same
time. Recreation is one of the
main concentrations as far as
group activities are concerned.
"Playing with the kids and getting
to know them at the same time is
a good way to develop a relation-
ship conducive to learning. If the
child knows you, respects you and
considers you a friend, he will also
want to learn from you and with
you," Sleet comnented further.
Other group activities being con-
sidered are dramatics programs,
talent and art shows.
Any University students who are
interested in tutoring should con-
tact the Tutorial office, 2547 in
the Student Activities Building.

Vocalists Sing in Nationally Recnowni Glee

The University of Michigan
Men's Glee Club, directed by Dr.
Philip A. Duey, opens its 107th
season this fall. Variety is the
keynote of the Club-variety of
personnel as well as music! Only
11 of the present 71 members are
enrolled in the School of Music.
The majority are enrolled in
either the College of Literature,
Science, and the Arts or the Col-
lege of Engineering. In all, eight
undergraduate colleges within the
University are represented, along
with the Schools of Law and Medi-
cine, the College. of Pharmacy,
and the Rackham School of Grad-
uate Studies.
The Glee Club is well-known
nationally because of its televi-
sion appearances and its annual
tours across the country. Through
1965-66 the Club traveled along
both the Atlantic and the Pacific
coasts of the United States. They
were heard and enjoyed in Seattle,
San Francisco, and Los Angeles
in the West and New York,
Holyoke, and Boston in the East.
During this time they also visited
the mile-high city of Denver, the
pleasure palace of Las Vegas, and
the industrial center of Akron.

Festival at Llangollen, Wales.
They proved this victory was no
fluke when they returned to Llan-
gollen in 1963 to win again in'
competition with 20 other clubs,
from 11 countries.
This season promises to be out-
standing, though no exception to

the traditions established by this
student-managed, self -perpetuat-
ing organization. The Club has
plans for a precedent -setting
world tour in the summer of 1967
to complement its annual fall and
spring concerts in Ann Arbor on
Nov. 12 and April 1, respectively.

Graduation has taken from the
Club some of its finest voices and
new men are needed. to fill the
void. All interested parties should
attend the general meeting Aug.
29 in Rooms 3R and S of the
Michigan Union. Freshmen are
