titled "Merce Dilleto Amiche," from
Guiseppe Verdi's "I Vespri Siciliani."

nine numbers in all, will be offered by
the popular prima donna. Among
these are songs of Wagner, Brahms,
Strauss, Schubert, Schumann, Mous-
sorgsky, and Frank La Forge.

Student-Faculty Relations
Committee Of Michigan
Union Issues Statement
TermedC Challenge
To Undergraduates
Committee Shows -Trust
In Firm Government
And Referendum
By THOMAS H. KLEENE
A challenige to the entire student
I body to establish "an authoritative
government of their own" was issued
last night in the form of a resolution
signed and drawn up by the members
of the Student-Faculty Relations
Committee of the Michigan Union.
Prompted by the belief that student
government on the campus is almost
powerless, the standing committee,
whose membership includes four fac-
ulty men and four students, pointed
out that the student body now has
an opportunity to secure self-govern-
ment.
Calls On Undergraduates
The resolution calls upon under-
graduates "to proceed in an orderly,
progressive, and constructive way to-
wards the attainment of effective stu-
dent government."
The entire statement as signed by
the members of the committtee is as
follows:
'BE IT RESOLVED, That in the
light of recently published statements
in the Daily Official Bulletin of The
Michigan Daily, as well as in The
Daily itself, and the admirable declar-
ation of the President with regard to
the policy of the administration, rela-
tive to student conduct and the regu-
lation thereof in this University, it is
the sense of the Committee on Stu-
dent-Faculty Relations of the Mich-
igan Union that there is now present-
ed to the student body an opportunity
to proceed in an orderly, progressive,
and constructive way towards the at-
tainment of effective student govern-
ment. It is the opinion of the com-
mittee that students should have an
authoritative government of their
own, and that this government should
always be consulted when the Univer-
sity believes some action should be
taken regarding student conduct.
Therefore, this committee stands
ready to help in any manner feasible
towards the formation of such a stu-
dent government."
Signed,
Committee on Student-Faculty
Relations of the Michigan
Union.
Members Of Committee
The members of the committee who
all signed the resolution are Chairman
Allen D. McCombs, '35, president of
the Union, Prof. James K. Pollock of
the political science department, Prof.
John S. Worley of the transportation
engineering department, Prof. Charles
F. Remer of the economics depart-
ment, Prof. William A. McLaughlin of
the French department, William G.
Ferris, '35, managing editor of The
Daily, Douglas R. Welch '35, record-
ing secretary of the Union, and Wil-
liam R. Dixon, '36, student executive
councilman.
- It was felt by the members of the
committee that student government
should have real power, and further
that the student body should always
be consulted either individually or as
a group when any matters affecting
them are considered.
The consulting of students, commit-
tee members pointed out, would elim-
inate to a large degree the passing of
"unfortunate" legislation.
Debating Team.To
Broadcast Nov. 2
The third annual radio debate by
members of the Varsity Debating team

will be broadcast over Station WJR
at 2 p.m., Nov. 2, James H. McBurney,
