'Challenge'
To Discuss
New Nations
"The Challenge of the Emer-
gent World" was chosen yesterday
as the Challenge discussion topic
for the spring semester.
Aspects of the problem suggested
for consideration included the role
of the United 'States in relation
to the unchanging nations, to
the presently' exploding nations,
i.e., Cuba and The Congo, and to
such already exploded nations as
Ghana and India.
Our political, social, military
and economic policies toward these
countries will probably be dis-
cussed, in addition to problems of
foreign aid and colonialism.
"The Challenge of Nuclear
Power" taking in disarmament
was a favored topic. Others con-
sidered at the mass meeting in-
cluded "The Challenge of Inter-
national Communism" and "The
Challenge of Education.".
Pair Apply
For Council
Two more petitions for Student
Government Council were taken
obit yesterday by Clint Gerhold,
'63E, and Dick Nohl, '62.
Others who petitioned pre-
viously are Lynn Bartlett, '63, Phil
Power, grad., Ted Parnell, '63, and
Dennis Shafer, '63.
Petitions are available in the
office of the Administrative Sec-
retary to the Student Government
Council in the Student Activities
building.

Guitarist Montoya Talks
On Flamenco Technique

By JUDITH SATTLER
"In America, we have a wonder-
ful opera public, and especially a
young public, who has learned
about opera through records and
television," said Mary Curtis-
Verna of the Metropolitan Opera
Company.
Miss Verna, who last night open-
ed the Choral Union concert series,
compared the "tremendous future
of opera in America" with the
failing interest in it in some of

In the United States, there are
over 150 small opera companies,
and traveling 'companies, which
provide opera for people in many
cities. The Metropolitan 'company,
and other large opera groups also
make national tours, the singer
said.
A possible new development may,
be a company of young singers
sent out on tour by the Metropoli-
tan. Miss Verna thinks this will
have a great appeal for the youn-
ger audience.
Afternoon Operas
A program of afternoon student
operas is also being given each

season at the Metropolitan, to
encourage interest. Miss Verna has
appeared a number of times in
these productions.
Miss Verna mentioned other de-
vices to increase and maintain
public interest in opera. She
pointed out that Rudolf Bing,
manager of the Metropolitan, tries
to introduce new works into the
repertoire and costumes and sets
by engaging different people to
design and stage the productions.
The local chapter of Sigma
Alpha Iota, national music soror-
ity, last night initiated Miss Verna
as an honorary member.

Carlos Montoya, lamenco gui-
tarist, likes any folk music be-
cause it comes from the people.
Flamenco differs from other folk
music, in that it is more develop-
ed; it is not only of the people
but has taken over the people, he
decided., Anyone with technical
skill on the guitar can play Fla-
menco, but it takes an artist to
communicate the spirit of Gypsy
Spain to an audience.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower
will arrive at Metropolitan Air-
port at 12 noon, Monday, Oct. 17,
for a rally there and a subsequent
speaking engagement in Detroit,
Jo Mckenna, '62, president of the;
Young Republican Club, announc-
ed yesterday.
The YR's are planning a cara-
van to meet the President and
invite all interested students to
join them.

Oct. 11, Don Wismer of the
Republican State Central Com-
mittee will address the YR's at
their regular meeting in the 3rd

Cafe Promethan, Carlos Montoya
and his wife spoke about their
life and music. The Spanish gui-
tarist will play at 8:45 tonight at
Ann Arbor High. After 85 solo con-
certs in the United States, they
will tour South Africa and Europe.
Montoya, the first guitarist to
play a full solo concert of Fla-
menco, "almost always" finds a
rapport with his audiences. Unlike
classical guitar, Flamenco reaches
the audience the first time they
hear it, he thought.

PLAYI,

American audiences were goodt
afficionados and the guitar play-c
ers here were quite serious, ande
good about their Art. He told a
young guitar player, "You ought3
to have a professor or else you1
may develop poor hand tech-1
piques."
This descendant of the Spanishs
Gypsy, who had spent his lifeF
with a guitar, sat in the coffees
house telling students he has
never played any piece of music
the same way. Why? "Because Iz
play with my audiences, and the
music comes from my soul, I like
it, I feel it."
Montoya listens to selections
from his 23 albums only when he
is with friends who are playing
the records. When he is alone, he
fwill listen to any other music, or
specifically desiring flamenco,
will listen to "the world's great-
est flamenco guitarist"-in per-
son.

MARY CURTIS-VERNA
...discusses U.S. opera
the provincial areas of Europe,
drawing on her own singing
experience in both places.
"Since the state financial sup-
port goes to the larger opera
houses, in the smaller provincial
houses in Italy, for example, the
productions have not had the
stimulus of variety of repertoire,
and productions are often shabby,"
she said.
Elaborate Entertainment
"As a result, the young people
are often more interested in the
elaborate entertainments on tele-
vision."
