Glee Club begins
By JULIE KELLER
Out of a fraternal drinking club
in the 1800s sprouted a men's
group that became the second oldest
glee club in the country.
The club was organized in 1846,
but it was not formally recognized
by the University until 1859, one
year after the Harvard club was

The fall concert is a club
tradition. "It's a magic feeling

and making folks happy for so
Before the club expanded into a
full-scale chorus in the1800s, a
small group of men called the
Friars gathered every week to sing
at a restaurant or bar. "They were a
fraternal drinking society of the
era," said junior Mike Osborne,
Men's Glee Club president.
UNTIL THE EARLY 1900s
the club flourished, but in the
1920s it began experiencing
financial hardships. In an effort to
raise money and increase visibility,
the club became affiliated' with the
Michigan Union. The club ended up
working with the Union to raise
money for the building and is
considered to be one of its founding
The group officially became the
Michigan Men's Glee Club in
1922, but the Friars continued to
perform as a small a capella group.
The Friars are all members of the
Glee club, but they raise their
money and produce their own
In the early years of the club, the
seven to 12 members sang college
songs and vaudeville tunes. To this
day, "The glee club sings more
traditional Michigan songs," said
Bo Kelly, the club's business
manager, while "the Friars sing
basic upbeat tunes including a lot
of '50s music."
THE GLEE CLUB went on
its first world tour in 1967 in honor
of the University's 150th
Anniversary. On their tour they
sang in Finland, Russia, China,
Japan, the Philippines, India,
Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Great
Britain, France, and Wales.
The club still takes its music on
tours. In 1985 the club toured
Greece, Yugoslavia, Italy, Austria,
West Germany, France, Great
Britain, and Wales. In January, the
glee club. will sing in several
Michigan cities and in the spring
the group will tour the west coast.

Leftis slain in Philippines
MANILA, Philippines - One of President Corazon Aquino's
leading leftist su'porers was found brutally murdered yesterday, the day
she returned from abroad to a capital swept by rumors of coup plots
Police found the mutilated body of Rolando Olalia, president of the
Partido ng Bayan (People's Party) and the militant May 1st Movement
labor alliance, in a ditch on the edge of the capital hours after his family
reported him missing. The body of his driver was found two miles
Antonio Cuenco, political affairs minister, said the killing "further
aggravates" the crisis in Mrs. Aquino's government, which has been
split by Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile's criticism of her policies.
During her four-day visit to Japan seeking aid for the crippled
economy. Manila was rife with rumors that disaffected military officers
linked to Enrile would strike against leftists to provoke a violent
response as a pretext to take over the government.
Woman becomes speaker
pro temnpore in Mich. House
LANSING---State Rep. Teola Hunter, a Detroit Democrat, became
the first woman in the history of the Michigan House to be elected
speaker pro tempore yesterday.
Hunter, who catapulted from assistant majority floor leader to the
No. 2 postition within the Democratic caucus, will succeed outgoing
Speaker Pro Tern Matthew NcNeely (D-Detroit). McNeely, who held
the post since 1973, is retiring after 22 years in the House.
Hunter, who like McNeely is black, called her selection the highest
achievement of her political career.
"I am just ecstatic about the election and ecstatic that (my)
colleagues and peers decided I was competent for the position," said the
53-year-old lh. ..'aker, who was first elected tothe House in 1980.
As speaker pro tem, Hunter will preside over the House for the
speaker unless another lawmaker is designated to preside. Serving for
the speaker, the speaker pro tem calls the House to order and conducts
the chamber's bsiness for the day.
Hunter's victory over Reps. Joe Young (D-Detroit) and William
Keith (D-Garden City), created some dissension.
American first foreigner to
become Chinese shareholder
PEKING - Chinese bankers boosted New York Stock Exchange
Chairman John Phelan's personal portfolio yesterday by giving him
one share of the Flying Happiness Acoustics Co., making the visitor
Communist C hia's first foreign stockholder.
Zhou Zhishi, head of the People's Bank of China Shanghai branch,
handed Phelan the certificate wrapped in a red ribbon at an extraordinary
conference on financial markets sponsored by the state-run bank and the
world's biggest stock exchange.
"You have become a shareholder in a Chinese company," Zhou told
Phelan at a closing ceremony in Peking's cavernous Great Hall of the
People. Phelan, the first foreign stockholder in China since the 1949
Communist takeover, smiled broadly.
Gov't encourages families
WASHINGTON -- A Reagan administration study group, charging
that the "fabic of family life has been frayed by the abrasive
experiments of two liberal decades," yesterday called for tax breaks and
government polices to encourage child rearing.
"Intact families are good. Families who choose to have children are
making a desirabie decision," said the report entitled "The Family:
"Mothers and fathers who then decide to spend a good deal of time
raising those children themselves rather than leaving it to others are
demonstrably doing a good thing for those children," the report said.
Education Un adersecretary Gary Bauer, who headed the 22-member
task force, denied that the report implied any criticism of couples who
decided not to have children or who put their youngsters in day care.
Michingan temperatures dive
Gale.-force winds that carried a blast of cold Canadian air into
Michigan began calming yesterday, leaving behind a shivering state
where at least a half-dozen record low temperatures were set.
The lighter winds began calming Michigan's lakes, which had been
whipped up by near hurricane-force gusts the day before. The National
Weather Service canceled an advisory warning of severe beach erosion
along Michigan's Lake Superior and Lake Michigan shorelines.
Gale warnings issued for lakes Superior, Huron, Michigan, and Erie
were discontinued yesterday, and waves began shrinking, but frigid air
"This is very unseasonable," weather service meteorologist Bob
Fendon said from Ann Arbor. ".... The system that brought in this
cold is going to be moving rapidly to the east."
He estimated that temperatures across the state ranged from 15 to 20
degrees colder than normal.
Record lows were set early Thursday in Marquette, where a five-
below-zero reading was 13 degrees colder than the previous record set in
