Chrysler Choir
To Sing Before
Hospital School
Employes In Motor Car
Plant Make Upu Large
Male Chorus
The Chrysler Male Choir of De-
troit, reputedly the largest choir of
its kind ih the world, will give a con-
cert for the benefit of the University
Hospital school at 8 p.m. Sunday in
Hill Auditorium.
The Choir is made up of workers
of the Chrysler Motors Corporation
who in the day time toil in the manu-
facturing plants. In the evening this
choir gives concerts, oftes traveling
to distant parts of Michigan.
Mr. Thomas Lewis, assistant per-
sonnel director of the Chrysler cor-
poration, is the conductor and train-
er of the choir. His life dmeonstrates
the benefits accruing from hard work.
He was reared in South Wales and he
was put to the task of earning his
living before he reached the age of
11. He first worked, in coal mines
in England, and when he was 23 he
came to the United States and worked
in the steel mills of Pittsburgh, mov-
ing to Chicago three years later.
In Chicago Lewis took up the study
of voice culture and an active part
in choral work. He came to Detroit
in 1917 to be employed by the Chrys-
ler corporation with which he has re-
mained since. He is instructor in law
and English at the Chrysler institute
of engineering. He was admitted to
the bar in 1932, after attending the
Detroit College of Law for several
Ages of the members of the choir
range from 18 to 64, and in some in-
stances father and son are both mem-
bers. When the first call for aspirant
choristers was issued, 70 candidates
answerd. Conductor Lewis made the
only requirement a desire to sing
which probably explains the relatively
large attendance.
The Choir holds its rehearsals one
evening each week, and strangely, it
is purely and simply an activity of
the employees only. When concerts
are scheduled the choir increases'the
frequency of its rehearsals to a num-
ber of times a week.
Eleven weeks after it was organized,
the choir gave its first performance.
During its early practice periods its
popularity increased and at the first
presentation there were 154 in the
Spring Health
Hazards Take
Ordinary Toll
Dr. William M. Brace of the Uni-
versity Health Service sounded a
warning tb students yesterday with
regards to annual spring maladies.
There have been three cases of
pneumonia entered in the Health
Service this week and more than the
usual number of cold patients. Dr
Brace believes this is the result of the
change in the weather and careless-
ness of individuals in regard to thei
clothing. Many of those who exer-
cise out of doors neglect putting or
extra covering during the rest periods.
Another group of patients is mad
up of those who are a little too anx-
ious to get out in the sun. The Health
Service has had many visits from
those seeking relief from sunburn
Dr. Brace says he believes in the ad-
vantages of sunshine, but warns the
"roof-sitters" from getting it in such
large quantities.

Last, but no less agravating, is the
poison ivy. There are also a number
of students suffering from this spring
and summer infection.

Congress Hears Bonus Veto Message Of President

Mayor Campbell
Names May 25
As Poppy Day
Proclamation Sets Date
To Honor Dead And Aid
Saturday, May 25, was proclaimed
as Poppy Day in Ann Arbor in a
proclamation issued yesterday by
Robert A. Campbell, mayor of the city.
The sale is to be conducted by mem--
bers of the American Legion. Vet-
erans of Foreign Wars and their
families. Mayor Campbell's procla-
mation follows:
"The City of Ann Arbor during the
great crisis of the World War senC
forth its sons in response to the na-
tion's call. They served gallantly in
the nation's defense, and of their
numbers some were called upon to
lay down their lives in that service.
The memory of their patriotic sacri-
fice should always be held dear by
the citizens of Ann Arbor.
"Others of these brave young men
were called upon to sacrifice, not life,
but the health and strength which
makes life worth while. Their fami-
lies and the families of the dead also
were required to make heavy sacri-
fices. These disabled and dependents
are still paying the human price of
our nation's World War victory.
"From the battle front in France
our returning soldiers brought the
poppy as the symbol of sacrifice and
the memorial flower of the dead.
Each year on the Saturday before
Memorial'Day the men and women of
the Veteran Organizations ask us to
wear this flower in tribute to the na-
tion's fallen defenders and to give in
exchange for the flower a contribu-
tion to aid the war's living victims.
"Therefore, I, Robert Campbell,
Mayor of Ann Arbor, urge all citizens
to honor the dead and aid the liv-
ing by wearing and displaying the
Memorial Poppy on Saturday, May 25.1
Let the merchants display their col-
ors on that date.
"And to that end, I do hereby pro-
claim Saturday, May 25, Poppy Day
in the City of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
