[unior Year Abroad Planning Continues


A plan for a University-spon-
sored Junior Year Abroad program
will be presented to the literary
college executive committee in the
near future, Associate Dean JamesĀ¢
H. Robertson said recently.
"We'd like to set up a program
with a large, provincial French
University, someplace off the beat-
en track. We've been considering
Strasbourg, among others -- it's
near the Swiss and German bor-
ders, and has good communica-
tions lines all over Europe."
Under a University - sponsored
program, students would remain
Musket Slates
Ki smet Showrj
Jonh Fried, '62, general chair-
man of Musket, announced thatl
Kismet would be the Musket pro-
duction for the fall of 19860.,
Josie Kasle, '62, assistant gen-
eral chairman said, "We feel that
Musket has reached the position
where we can understand an in-
tricate and exciting show like
Two new members were added
to the central committee. Phyllis
Plotkin, '62, and Barbara Flei-
scher, '63, were chosen as chore-
Musket was born right after
significent changes were made in
the once traditional Union Opera's
format. The most important one
was to let women enter the ex-
clusively male cast.
At that time it was thought that
original material might still be
used, but it was finally decided
that nothing was quite good
enough; the safest thing would be
to produce standards.
Work on this year's production
began before Easter when com-
mittees were chosen for their re-
spective jobs. Fried explained that
he hoped most of the organiza-
tional details could be thought
through soon enough so that ac-
tual work could begin immediately
in the fall.
He estimated that upwards of
200 people would be needed in the
show on jobs ranging from acting
and dancing to orchestration, sets,
make-up, props, promotions and

officially registered here, and
would attend the foreign school
under the supervision and juris-
diction of the University.
"We would have some sort of
administrative center," Robertson
said, "a rallying point for the stu-
dents, but we would try to arrange
living quarters with local families."
Expected To Learn
Students would be expected to
learn from the foreign professors
in the native language of the coun-
try. The University would plan a
program of preparatory work so
that the students could cope with
the language and studies.
"The primary problem is the
knotty question of finances," Ro-
bertson explained. Plans. for a
'study abroad' program must take
into account the limitations of
available funds to underwrite it.
"There is also a philosophical
problem. If this is to be a- Uni-
versity venture, should the student
pay the same tuition as he would

To Feature
Jazz Artists
At Arm ory
Visiting artists and the local
Bob James Trio will be featured
in the first Ann Arbor Jazz Festi-
val to be held at 2:30 p.m. and 8
p.m. tomorrow at the Armory,
223 E. Ann.
During the first half of the con-
cert, the Bob James Trio will per-
form with five guest horn players
and a jazz vocalist. The five are
Bob Detwiler, Jim Whiten, Eddie
Armour, Floyd Mooreland and
Sherman Mitchell from Ypsilanti,
Flint and Detroit. Coming from
Flint is the singer Bonita.
The Frank Morelli Quintet will
take over the second half of the
concert and feature Joe Hender-
son, Ray McKinney, Joe Hunt,
and Harry Whitaker. Master of
ceremonies for the show is disc
jockey Ollie McLaughlin.
Promoting the Jazz Festival are
Archie Allen, Omar Clay, and Bob
James. If they receive enough
support and enthusiasm at the
Festival, the hope to make the
Festival an Ann Arbor tradition,
and open a jazz cafe.
Advance tickets are on sale at
the Music Center, Morrill's, The
Disc Shop, M-Den Barbershop,
and Dick's Record Shop.

at the University, even though it
costs less to attend a foreign
school, using the remaining money
to support the University pro-
gram?" This is the way it is done
at other colleges, Robertson re-
marked but it is a problem which
must be worked out in terms of the
University itself.
Generally Favorable
According to Robertson, there
has been a generally favorable
response to the program plan from
faculty and undergraduate units.
"They seem to agree that this is a
valid educational venture."
He noted several advantages of
a University sponsored program.
"There are an increasing number
of students who show more than
a passing interest in junior year
abroad programs."
"If study abroad were an in-
tegral part of the University apro-
gram, more interested students
would be willing and able to go.
A University-sponsored program
would alleviate some of the sticky
problems of credit transferral in-
volved in University students
studying under other programs. It
would also allow the students,
since they would be officially en-
rolled in the University, full access
to the University scholarship
Program plans are presently be-
ing drawn into a report by the
Junior Year Abroad Committee,
of which Robertson is a member.
When the report is completed, it
will go to Dean Roger Heyns of
the literary college and to the
executive committee. "If they ap-
prove it, we will take it to Vice-
President and Dean of Faculties
Marvin L. Niehuss," Robertson
With his approval, the commit-
tee will try to find financial back-
ing for the program, "at least un-
til it's on its feet."
