The trip to Europe may be just
memories for most of the Men's
Glee Club veterans, but the vocal
group's traveling plans have in no
way been curtailed.
The club, which has earned in-
ternational recognition for its mu-
sic, undertook a tour of the West
Coast last spring and intends to
visit the East Coast this coming
The 75-member choral group
toured Europe in the spring ofa
1960 and was awarded first prize
for male choirs at the 13th annual
International Musicale Eisteddfod1
in Llangollen, Wales, marking the
first time an American group hasl
ever been awarded the coveted
Twice Before
Twice before, in 1955 and 1959,
the club made concert trips across
the Atlantic, always receiving en-
thusiastic responses.
This spring, the group traveled
to the West Coast where they ap-
peared in Seattle, Portland, Palo
Alto, Los Angeles and San Diego.
The climax of the tour came
when they appeared on a national
television show with Dinah Shore.
Glee, Club lours throughout the
country are sponsored by local
alumni clubs. The vocal group,
however, pays for its own trans-
portation and incidental expenses.
"Promoting the University" is the
club's focal point, explains Thom-
as Gething, Grad., club president.
Earns Money
The organization earns its mon-
ey through concerts given in this
area and through sales of its rec-
ord "White Tie and Tails." The
record was first released in 1958,
made from tapes of Hill Aud.con-
certs of several years. Plans for a
new record are now being consid-
ered by the group, Gething said.
The club appears in such places
as Bay City, Detroit and Toledo
giving special performances.
Besides performances in the
southern Michigan area, the club
appears at the Honors Convoca-
tion, mid-year graduation and a
few other special University func-
tions. The organization will sing
at the President's welcome during
registration week.
Duey Directs
Led by their able director, Prof.
Philip A. Duey of the music school,
the club will begin its 103rd year
this fall with a public concert in
Hill Aud., one of two the group
Schedules on campus. Prof. Duey
has been leading the Glee Club
since 1947. The fall concert is tra-
ditionally given with another
men's glee club from the college
whose team is playing Michigan
that weekend. This year Duke Uni-
versity's glee club will travel here
from Durham, N.C.
A general tryout meeting will be
held Sept. 19 for all interested
men. Approximately 25 openings



will be filled, Gething estimates,
and students in all classes, under-
graduate and graduate, are eli-
gible. The group is not connected
in any official manner with the
music school. Individual auditions
will be held later in September.
Travel East
In the spring, the club will trav-
el east, with concerts scheduled
in Ohio, New Jersey, New York and
possibly two New England states.
The Glee Club is a student-man-
aged, self-perpetuating organiza-
tion. It is financially independent,
although receiving a small ap-
propriation from the University.
Its accompanist, although salar-
ied, is a student. Prof. Duey ar-
ranges the numbers.
The club elects a president and
vice-president and a business staff
is appointed from among the

With' Portia over the doorway

Cook building is undoubtedly the
center of more legends and myths
than any other dormitory on cam-
For example, it is a firmly-
enriched conviction of the major-
ity of the students-male and fe-
male-that Martha Cook residents
all maintain an average of 4.0 or
better. Needless to say, this is not
only completely false, it's im-
But while the building's grade-

that spectacular, Martha Cook
does have many distinctive .fea-

living very unlike that of other
women's dormitories.
Martha Cook is not a part of
the University ,Residence Halls
system. 'T'hough its residents are
subject to the campus rules gov-
erning women, it is under the con-

nors, established by William Wil-
son Cook, '80, who built the dor-

an early start on Hyde Park for-
ums to be held, once again, on the
Diag, and a series of orientation
A tea at which American co-eds
will be given an opportunity to
meet international women stu-
dents is to be featured among the
orientation activities. The foreign
students' presence on campus is
one of the University's greatest
assets, she says, and so little ad-
vantage is taken of it.
Another fall project is the es-
tablishment of a standing commit-
tee for publications. It is proposed
that this group handle the Union-
League calendar notebook, a
League-Union handbook, and an
information booklet co-ordinating
all women's organizations.
Coordination Effort
This committee, Miss Nemlaha
explains, is part of an effort to in-
crease communication between the
campus's many, widely scattered
student groups.
The League houses Women's
Senate, Women's Judiciary Coun-
cil, and its own appointing body,
the Interviewing and Nominating
committee in addition to its ten
standing committees.
Though women may join the
League as upperclassmen, she em-
phasiizes, there is a special train-

ing and projects program for
freshmen. These Burocats, as they
are called, work with other League
committees in the areas of stu-
dent and community services, pub-
licity, activities, and special proj-
ects, she explains.
Special Projects
Frosh Weekend, Soph Show, and
the Junior Girls' Play are among
the special projects which the
League sponsors or co-sponsors.
Its services include dancing and
bridge playing 'lessons, a tutorial
service and a bureau for the Na-
tional Student Association tours
of Europe.
The League building offers many
facilities to the campus in addi-
tion to Undergraduate Offices, Miss
Nemlaha points out.
,.The snack bar and cafeteria are
perhaps the most well-known of
these facilities, as well as the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre. There are
also numerous meeting rooms,
several listening rooms, a library
restricted to women, a ballroom,
a shop for projects and theatrical
productions work, rehearsal rooms
and a dancing studio.
Summing up the future role of
the League, Miss Nemlaha says:
"It is changing-we are trying to
change it." But it will remain, she
says, "a meeting place of women's
minds and personalities and all
that that implies."
