Joan Baez will appear at 8:30
p.m. today at Ann Arbor High
School Auditoritim in a program
of folk songs sponsored by the
Ann Arbor Folk and Jazz Society.
Of Mexican-Irish parentage,
Miss Baez has lived with der fam-
ily in many areas of the world.
Her father's work as a professor
of physics has taken the family to
Paris, Rome, Switzerland. and
Baghdad.
She began to sing and play the
guitar in her early teens, but has
never had any formal musical in-
struction.
Miss Baez became interested in
folk music in 1958 in Boston,
where she began to associate with
college student enthusiasts in cof-
fee shops.
Since then, she has sung in night'
clubs and on television, and ap-
peared at the Newport Folk Fes-
tival in 1959 and the Boston Arts
Festival in 1960.
She especially enjoys performer
ing for the "folk crowd" at col-

Non-academic evaluations in
residence halls and Student Gov-
ernment Council's relationship,
with the campus were discussed
by four SGC candidates at an
open house at Adams House in
W e s t Quadrangle Wednesday
night.
Thomas Brown, '63BAd; Rich-
ard G'sell, '63; Joseph Feldman,
'64, and Robert Ross, '63, all
agreed that residence hall non-
academic evaluations should be
changed, but disputed the extent
of a possible revision.4
Ross said, "when I heard of the
non-academic evaluations, I felt
haunted. Counselors who. are not
professionally qualified should not
make out these forms. These sub-
jective evaluations are not trust-
worthy."
Abolish Evaluations
Feldman agreed that the eval-
uations should be abolished. Aside
from the "moral principles,". he
noted that neither the Federal
Bureau of Investigation nor busi-

nessmen would take much stock{
in the reports.
Brown objected to the subjec-
tive part of the form. "The ques-
tions can be interpreted in differ-
ent ways. There is not enough
room on the form for an explana-
tion."
Claiming that resident advisors,
are not competent to make evalu-.,
ations because they cannot hope
to know everyone, G'sell agreed
that an objective evaluation should;
be maintained.
Communication Ineffective
Brown and G'sell also attacked'

the present council for its failure
to communicate and be effective
to the campus.
G'sel urged the council to have
more concern with campus prob-
lems. He cited the need for an
expanded Student Book Exchange
as example of an activity SGC
could undertake for the benefit
of students.
Brown said that duplication in
the administrative wing has hurt
SGC effectiveness. "The Council
should be wary that, when it sets
up new committees, it is not add-
ing to the overlapping."

The owner of a small jewelry
shop has testified at a Federal
Trade Commission hearing in
Chicago that he cannot compete
fairly in the national fraternity
insignia market because of "of-
ficial jewelryships."
John Buchroeder added that
these agreements give exclusive
rights of sale of a fraternity's
jewelry to a single manufacturer,
L. G. Balfour Co., of Attleboro;
Mass., which he said dominates
the $15-18 million a year business.

David Pollock, superintendent of
Community Services, wrote that"

University in 1963 duer to housing
