Glee club target:
Plane fare for a song
BY KRISTIN PALM
PRESIDENTIAL elections occur every four years, as do the Olympics.
Also, about every four years the University Men's Glee Club stages a tour
overseas. While the club travels every spring, they do not always go so far
from home. Last year they sang at stops along the West Coast, but this
May they will travel to Hawaii, Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong and Korea.
The purpose of the tour is to "stretch us and build good relations between
students of various other cultures," said Glee Club director Jerry Blackstone.
But in order to do this they need money, which is the purpose for their
Spring Concert on Saturday.
The concert is a coda to various fundraisers which have included record
sales, weekend tours and singing telegrams. Musical highlights include a
guest performance by soprano Martha Sheil from the School of Music. She
has also performed with the Cleveland Opera and the New York City Opera.
Miscellaneous highlights include a raffle with four round-trip airplane
tickets anywhere in the United States as the top prize. Pieces to be performed
include works by Aaron Copeland, Benjamin Britten and Schubert as well as
folk songs and spirituals.
The Glee Club will also perform selected Michigan songs. For those who
have heard enough of these tunes lately, rest assured the Glee Club will take
a different approach than the carolers on South University Monday Night.
THE MEN'S GLEE CLUB and THE FRIARS will sing their way to the
Orient at 8 p.m. Saturday at Hill Auditorium. Tickets are $2-7 and are
available at the Hill Box Office and at the door.

R.E.M. avoids arena cliches

Bennie Wallace found his musical roots in his home of Tennessee,
arguably the prettiest state in the land of the free.
Wallace plays an
individualized sax
BY TROY HOLLAR
BENNIE Wallace is just trying to be himself.
"Being an individual is the only thing that matters. I really want to
have my own personality and play what's coming from me," he declares.
The veteran saxophonist will perform his inspirational jazz here in Ann
Arbor tonight.
A native of Tennessee, young Bennie readily absorbed the rhythm &
blues, bluegrass, and jazz of the South, and as a teenager he began to dab-
ble in all of these areas.
After graduating from the University of Tennessee as a clarinet major,
he traveled to New York in the early '70s. He cut his teeth on the per-
forming circuit for a few years, and then formed a trio with bassist Eddie
Gomez and drummer Eddie Moore. Their first album, The Fourteen Bar
Blues, won a number of honors, including Germany's Jazz Oscar and
Billboard's top jazz album pick of the week.
Wallace went on to release six more critically acclaimed records, and to

BY MICHAEL P.FISCHER
T-HE words "redwood trees, bumper
cars, and wolverines - from "I
Remember California," R.E.M.'s
21st offering of the evening -
inadvertantly drew vocalist Michael
Stipe a booming cheer (after a split-
second delay of recognition) from
among the considerable Ann Arbor
contingent filling Detroit's Cobo
Arena Wednesday night. But the
anxious singer had already made it
clear only four songs into the set
that he would not allow the
celebratory atmosphere of songs like
"Underneath the Bunker" and "It's
the End of World" to be screwed into
any semblance of the disgrace on
South U.
When a young woman jumped
the stage about two-thirds through
"Disturbance at the Heron House,"
Stipe defensively turned his back
upon her vain dance and walked
calmly away towards bassist Mike
Mills; after her removal, the
frontman abandoned in disgust his
attempt to retrace the song's verses,
bringing the band to an abrupt
collapse.
"Disturbance," in which Stipe
sings, "the followers of chaos! (are)
out of control," expresses his
preoccupation with the urgency of
personal responsibility toward world
crisis. This incident spelled it out
more eloquently than any of the
various filmed messages appearing
thoughout ("No jumping the stage...
as Peter dosen't like that," and,
before an encore of "Finest
Worksong," "Understand that change
begins with the individual/
Understand the importance of a
single act").
Nevertheless, a wordless Stipe
curiously followed the incident by.
convening his sidekick Peter Buck
- playing no less than a Gibson
sunburst Les Paul guitar- and the
group into the corrosive
Zeppelinesque assault of "Turn You

Inside-Out," perhaps a further
ultimatum to the crowd - a strange
twist on the R.E.M's peaceful image
and the gentle grace of Murmur 's
"Perfect Circle," an encore
augmented by the piano of
keyboardist/guitarist/fifth-man Peter
Holsapple (of the now-dormant
dB's). But if all that the apocalyptic
feedback of the group's atonal 2-
minute intro to "Feeling Gravity's
Pull" needed was Buck scratching
with a violin-bow in order to
become the live "Whole Lotta
Love," then the "When the Levee
Breaks" gloom of "California" and
the crazy-legged Buck's Page-like
mandolin of "You are the
Everything" illustrate the historical
opportunities of R.E.M's arena-rock
success; who could imagine a 1977
Robert Plant directing fans to a
Greenpeace display?
Perhaps only U2 may have a
better chance to bring new post-punk
virtues into the rockist mainstream.
But singer Stipe seems to be coping
with R.E.M.'s ever-growing
magnitude by constructing an
isolated shell onstage around his
already strange character; although he
strips ritually from an overcoat and
hat down through a suit and into
bicycle shorts and T-shirt while his
group loosens up, he remains
throughout a jittery scarecrow at the
mike stand, singing through a
megaphone at times and ultimately
becoming an oddly demonic presence
during Television's "See No Evil,"
perched absolutely still for a minute
on a monitor like some bird of prey.
Always unpredictable, throwing
in surprises like a "Summertime
(And the Living is Easy)," a George
Gershwin tune from Porgy and Bess,
and a farewell ditty into the third and
final encore of a 28-song value-for-
money set, R.E.M. ridiculed big-
time showmanship with a filmed
interlude called "Audience
Participation Segment," which
flashes: "Hello (Your Town's Name

TONIGHT, University medical
students will be real cut-ups as they
act out "bawdy" skits, says Bob
Wright, who plays the role of
"Blowfeld - an evil mastermind
surgeon inside the hospital system"
in a James Bond spoof.
This will be the 71st annualn
homemade drama created by The
Galens Medical Society, which con-
tributes to numerous local charities
and causes, inclucing SAFEhouse
and the children at Mott Hospital,
The creativity of these students

shows in their payment of the salary
of an arts and crafts teacher, specifi-
cally employed to entertain children
during their stay at the hospital.
"It's kind of boring to be stuck in
the hospital," sympathized Wright.
But tonight and Saturday, at the
Mendelssohn Theater, medical stu-
dents both members and non-mem-
bers of The Galens Society will offer
a sharper look into the character of
life in medical school and beyond.
The satiric insight shows in their
portrayal of three actual faculty
members, "a surgeon, a pediatrician
