both mechanically and tonally to the

present America contains the five
largest carillons in the world.
Comparison is done by weight as
well as size. The largest carillon in
the world is that of the Riverside
church in New York City, with 72
bells, the largest of which weighs 20
tons. Second is that of the chapel of
the University of Chicago, with also
72 bells, the largest weighing 18 tons.
The Michigan Baird Carillon, with
53 bells; the largest of which weighs
12 tons, will be the world's third
largest carillon, while the fourth is
the Bok tower at Mountain Lake, Fla.
This has 61 bells, but 13 of these are

eval city of Rothemburg. Braun
stressed especially the age of the city
and said that one may ride through
its streets now in an automobile and
see the city exactly as it was 700
years ago, even in the most detailed
features. The continuity of the city
is preserved, he said, by a city ordi-
nance which dictates that the plans
for building and repairs to any part
of the city must first be approved
by a board of elders. This is done
to attract the tourist trade, he went
on, which annually flocks to the
quaint old settlement.
To Sponsor Lectures
Besides its club programs Der Ver-
eir is sponsoring a group of five lec-
tures on varied topics by members of
the faculty. These lectures are given
at 4:15 weekly in Room 2003 Angell
Hall. Associate membership tickets
may be procured from the secretary
of the German department (room 204
University Hall), Wahr's bookstore, or
at the time of the lecture. The price
for the whole series is 50 cents. The
dates, speakers and subjects are as

du~plicates in an attempt to in-
crease the sonority of the carillon.
There are two other carillons in
Michigan at present and two chimes, I
or sets of less than 25 bells. Christ
Church, Cranbrook, in Bloomfield
Hills and the Jefferson Avenue Pres-
byterian Church in Detroit have the
other carillons, while Michigan State
College has one of the chimes, and
Christ Church in Grosse Pointe has
the other. Most of the bells of these
carillons have been cast in England,
since American bell foundaries are
still pioneering and as yet have not
developed the technique of casting
large bells.
Describes Bells
"Bells in America often bring re-,
collections of jangling, disonant
sounds," Professor Moore added.
"Such a chime is that of our present
campus clock. This effect is due to
the tuning of the bells. When a bell
is struck, there is a main 'strike' note
and four other tones that result.
'Bad' bells are those in which these
four secondary sounds are not in
tune with the main note. During the
17th and 18th centuries, two famous
Flemish families of bell founders pro-
duced 'good' bells, but later this sec-
ret was lost until 1895, when John
Taylor and Company, founders of
the Baird Carillon, discovered a new
system called five-point tuning.
This puts the five sounds of the
bells in accurate pitch relationship
and results in a pleasing sound." A
carillon containing some 'good' and
some 'bad' bells usually made car-
illonneurs change musical scores to
favor the better bells. Because of
this there is no extensive literature
of published carillon music.
Will Remember Carillon
The effects of the carillon in cam-
pus and civic life in Ann Arbor will
grow as years go by, Professor Moore
said he believed. "The love of bells
is a cumulative experience coming
from constant association with them.
Probably Americans will not realize
their full value until they become as
established in tradition here as in the
older European countries. As gener-
ations come and go at Michigan, the
Burton Tower will be the one build-
ing recalling Michigan. It will be a
physical embodiment of the spirit of
Michigan, not only in a visible and
tarigible way, but also through the
medium of sound as well. The towerr
and the bells are bound to exert an
influence over all students, an in-
fluence forged out of the experience
of years and that cannot be pro-
No definite program for the bells
has as yet been arranged, though five
of the bells will be struck each day
in sounding the Westminster quar-
ters and the hours, he said.

One of the costliest tie-ups in history faced Great Lakes shipping as a
cold wave spread over Eastern Canada, threatening the downward
progress of 73 vessels from Lake Superior. This airphoto, taken by a
Detroit News cameraman, shows ships stuck in ice floes in the lower
St. Mary's river near Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. Later tugs freed 17 of the
freighters and they continued toward Lake Huron.
