class "B" Division represented

The Jackson team defined thei
equality of educational opportu-
nity as every child having the
chance to fully develop his own
talents. They then went on to de-t
fend their stand that the state
and local communities do not and
can not adequately provide for the
education of migrant workers't
children and those in slum areas.
The negation from Flint North-

toward equalizing the education of

such activities all over the coun-

of property values, thus raising

from Saginaw St. Mary Cathedral

ties in education exist from finan-
cial inequalities of the states.
They quoted reports showing
that states which have a shortage
of qualified teachers also have an
average teacher income lower
than the mean for the country.
They suggested a plan in which
each state would set up a research
commission to study the way in
which its finances were being em-
ployed and to offer plans for put-
ting them to more efficient use.
Then after the states helped
themselves as much as possible,
they could apply for federal aid

showed that in states where teach-

living is also low. This makes the

The name "Friars," originally
designating a Michigan drinking
club, is now attached to the noted
Michigan vocal octet, said Steven
Jones, '64, first tenor and treasur-
er of the Friars.
In the late nineteenth century
a group of University students
formed a social drinking club
which they called the Friars. After
this +uasi-fraternity disbanded in
the latter decade of this century,
the name Friars lay dormant until
1955 when Dr. Walter Collins of
Yale University founded a small
ensemble composed of University
Men's Glee Club members who
adopted the name "Friars" for
The Friars are self-sustaining.
Being a member of the University's
Men's Glee Club is the only pre-
requisite for trying out for the
Friars. The Glee Club neither
gives them monetary support nor
interferes with their tryouts.
The Friars' extensive repertoire
encompasses many vocal forms,
from barbershop, to modern, to
novelty, to rock 'n roll, Jones ex-
Last February the Friars sang
at colleges in Washington State
and have already been ,invited
back for a performance next year.
They will be giving a concert in
Kansas City in the middle of May.
Brook Stanford, '63, president and
first tenor, explained that the
Friars have many such invitations,
but, due to academic commit-
ments at the University, they are
unable to accept.
The Friars do most of their per-
froming at university fraternity
and soroity social events, and
functions in southern Michigan.
Most of the Friars' arrange-
ments are original. Ronald Jeffers,
'65SM, second tenor, and Leonard
Riccinto, '63 SM, baritone, are the
The Friars plan to make a rec-
ord next fall to augment the col-
lection of songs on their present
disc, "Fun With the Friars."
In their capacity as accompany-
ing ensemble to The Men's Glee
Club, the Friars have traveled
from coast to coast, have toured
throughout Europe, and have ap-
peared on radio and television.
Their varied audiences respond
cordially and appreciatively to
their humor and harmony, Stan-
The Friars are always given a
spot at the Glee Club concerts, and
this Saturday is no exception.
They will appear on May 12 at the

Fraser Infers Failure
Of Alliance for Progress
By ROBERT SELWA
The Alliance for Progress is fail-
This is the impression Steven
Fraser, Grad., received at a recent
conference on Latin America held
at Oberlin College.
"The Alliance is falling apart,"
he commented Monday. "It's miss-
ing the mark.
"The Latin Americans want
rapid progress and the Alliance
for Progress is slow. The Alliance's
funds are committed to non-pro-
ductive means that could have
been taken care of by the people."
Fraser cited housing and edu-
cation. He said local capital should

be used for building houses and
schools, and that United States aid
ought to go to promoting industry.
But "powerful economic pres-
sure groups" in Washington pre-
vent this more valid type of aid
because of the possibility of com-
petition with American capitalists,
"And these vested interests in
Washington are likely to lead
America down the primrose path
of destruction," Fraser asserted.
He noted that the Alliance for
Progress is known among Latin
Americans as "the Castro plan"
because it came about as a re-
sponseto Fidel Castro's Cuban.
"Latin Americans do not regard
Castroism as Communism, "Fraser
explained. "They regard it as a
unique brand of socialism, com-
pletely indigenous to Cuba: And
this is its appeal to Latin Amer-
Accommodation With Cuba
Fraser said that for the United
States to be more successful in
Latin America, it needs to achieve
an accommodation with Cuba,
with both countries making con-
The United States also needs to
push social change more force-
fully, Fraser suggested.
"How many revolts and revolu-
tions in Latin America do you hear
about calling for slow change and
free enterprise?" he added.
