Mukle Recalls 70 Years
As Performing Cellist

Tomorrow at 8 Htillel presents
of Eastern Michigan University
speaking on
in the series
"Alook at the Jewish Community in America"

All are welcome

"I hope you won't be shocked,
my concluding number is "Captain;
"It's about a sailor getting off
a ship having had a little too
much rum," a little lady, with a,
gentle British accent, named May
Mukle said, ,concluding a cello
recital Sunday night in Aud. A.
This white-haired, blue-gowned
cellist, on her 26th visit to Ann
Arbor, drew three encores and
then withdrew offstage with her
piano accompanist, Sutherland
Ideler and her cello.
Miss Mukle has played for over
three score and ten years since
her debut as a concert cellist at
age nine in her native England.
She has played to the entire world
except South America and Russia
and "hopes" to play there also.
Plays During War
A contemporary and "pal" of
Pablo Casals, Miss Mukle was a
member of Dame Myra Hess's en-
tertainment corps in England dur-
ing World War II. She appeared
frequently at the National Gallery
concerts, which were played at
noon, air raid or quiet, to keep
up the national spirit.
Before the war she ran a club,
called the "Mainly Musicians
Club,"a few doors from Oxford
Circus. As it was in the basement,9
it became an air-raid shelter dur-
ing the war with Miss Mukle asI
air-raid warden.a
"Oh, I did all sorts of things
during the war," she said. At the;
club, if there was no help, "I
was barman, cook, waitress and
sometimes slept on two tables in
the back, if things got rough." Ins
addition she did up to five per-s
formances a day for the troops.
There was a raid one time dur-
ing one of her performances in
Devon. "They told everyone where
to go except those on the stage.f
So we kept on playing as theI
bombs dropped. I felt like Nero1
fiddling while Rome burned," she
said with an unmistakable twinkle
in her eyes.
Performs "Schelomo"
In London and New York she,
made her first performance of
Bloch's "Schelomo." Numerous
works are dedicated to her, among
them a group of studies on folkc
tunes written for her by Ralph'
Vaughn Williams. She has played
many times with Casals in theI
Schubert "Quintet for Two Cellos."
Of Casals, she said, "we are 1
contemporaries. We sometimes
play together, sometimes we evenI

Ann Arbor residents who rush
sororities this year may pledge
under a new off-quota system if
they do not plan to live in a soror-
ity house next year, Mary Schae-
fer, '62, has annouhced.
The new requirement gives Ann
Arbor women the option of pledg-
ing as a "live-in" member under
the regular sorority quota of 65
active members, or pledging as a
"live-out" member outside the
quota. Live-out members will not
pay board and room fees.
A live-out member may move
into the sorority house any semes-
ter that there is a vacancy after
live-in and transfer members have
been housed. They are not under
obligation, however, to live in the
house at any time during their
college attendance.
Club To '1 0Hear
Music, Poetry
Music and poetry of the German
romantic period will highlight a
program sponsored by the German
Club at 8 p.m. today in the Hussey
Room of the Michigan League.
Soprano Anne DePree Reisig will
sing German "Lieder" by Brahms,
Wolf and Strauss. "Lieder" are
songs inspired by famous poems
which were not originally written
for music, Prof. Joachim Bruhn
of the German department said.
Composers would base their music
on the poetry, often using a dif-
ferent melody for each verse.
Miss Reisig will be accompanied
on the piano by Prof. Otto Graf
of the German department.
Professors Harold Scholler and
Hans Walther, also of the German
department, will do readings of
German romantic poets,
Before the main program, there
will be folk singing, accompanied
by guitar and a tape-recorded
faculty chorus. Refreshments will
follow the program,

in Southern Rhodesia. A year
later, again on the 13th of the
month, she played to an Ann
Arbor audience.
"I am in my second childhood.
I have learned to play all over
again," she chuckled. She demon-
strated her arm and visual exer-
cises and then said, "It's really
a pleasure to see you all again,
a double pleasure, because, (due
to her skull injury) I see you all
Since her accident, all her selec-
tions are played from nemory. "I
am sort of like the wreck of the
Hesperus," she laughed. She did
her arm exercises again and said,
"But I shall be all right, in time."
