Auditorium is in its final stages of
polishing and practice of microphone
technique. It consists of 17 parts
from start ato finish.
The program will be opened by the
Band, which will furnish the theme
in the playing of Michigan's famous
"Victors." From there on it will run
a swift and entertaining course as
the Glee Club sings "I Want to go
Back to Michigan." A short, but
complete historical sketch of the
University will be given by the master
of ceremonies, John Held, Jr., the
celebrated cartoonist and writer. A
quartet from "Yeoman of the
Guard" being presented earlier n the
evening by Play Production, which
has moved tomorrow night's perfor-
mance up from 8:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
so that it will not interfere with the
broadcast, will follow with selections
and will lead into a short sketch de-
picting the scene which occured at
the Pretzel Bell last spring when
Leopold Stokowski led the students
assembled there in songs after he
had conducted a concert at .Hill Au-
ditorium in the Spring Festival.
Glee Club To Sing
The Glee Club will then join the
Band to render some more of Mich-
igan's beautiful old songs, among
them being the less known "In Col-
lege Days" and "Goddess of the In-
land Seas." Some excellent imita-
tions of famed characters will in-
troduce Bob Steinle's Union Band as
it plays dance music to which stu-
dents dance to every Friday and
Saturday night.
The carillon program has been
scheduled for two numbers which will
be played at the discretion of the
radio technicians and the director,
Albert G. Miller.
Campus Aneclotes
Campus anecdotes, more band mu-
sic, and the singing of Michigan's
alma mater, the "Maize and Blue,"
with the audience joining in, will
conclude the program which will not
only be varied but also indicative of
Michigan student life and talent.
Tickets for the broadcast are still
available at the office of Prof. Waldo
M. Abbot of the speech department
in Morris Hall. These tickets are
given free with the compliments of
the Pontiac Motor Co., the sponsors
of the broadcast, who arranged for
the use of Hill Auditorium so that a
large number of students could be
present to take part in the program.
Mr. Miller uurged as many as possible
to be present if only "to get a glimpse
of the production of a large coast-
to-coast broadcast at first hand."

Detroit Stnikers Battle Police Gas Attack

z--Associated Press Photo
These auto union pickets used missiles for ammunition as they fought
p lice in an early morning scuffle that led to the closing of the Briggs
body plant in Detroit. Police hurled tear gas bomb's into the ranks of the
pickets which they estimated numbered about 2,000, but no one was
scriously injured in the melee.
Prof. Maddy's Weekly Program
Heard By 2,000 Music classes

More than 2,000 music classes lo-
cated in every part of the United
States, in Canada and abroad, even
to such distant countries as Syria and
India, listen to the weekly program
given by Prof. Joseph E.- Maddy of
the music school.
According to Professor Maddy, the
number of classes hearing the pro-
gram can be determined partly
through requests for booklets which
are sent out as an aid in learning
to play sti'inged instruments as
taught by Professor Maddy in his
program. Two thousand requests
have been received and there are
probably countless numbers of others
who listen to the program at 2:15
p.m. every Monday, Professor Maddy
"One thing that we do know is
that there are more adults listening

to the broadcasts than there are
children, and it is for the latter that
the programs are especially designed,"
he said. This ostensibly unsual sit-
uation suggests, in the opinion of
Professor Maddy, that any program
which has intrinsic value and is in-
teresting will have a large and ap-
preciative audience.
At First, Antipathy
When he first started giving lessons
over the air, he said there was a very
large amount of antipathy toward
his program. Music teachers in the
elementary schools and high schools
were afraid that radio music in-
struction would cost them their jobs,
he said. The private instructors,
too, voiced their vehement objections
to it. "But," he said, "the result of
broadcasting these lessons has been
diametrically opposite to that which
was feared. What has actually
happened is that interest has been
stimulated, more people desire to
play some instrument, and, as a re-
sult, more teachers are in demand.
Obviously the most that I can do
over the radio is act as a background,
and be an interpolater for the book-
lets which are sent out."
Supply Harmony
Psychologically, the effect is what
should be expected, according to Pro-
fessor Maddy. The student sitting
before the radio, he said, can feel as
though he were part of an orchestra,
inasmuch as harmony is supplied for
his playing by a group of eight
University students. Also, the radio
itself is a stimulating medium for
anything, and music lessons certainly
seem to be no exception, he com-
"In the classes," he stated, "the
regular teacher follows the broad-
cast, helps the pupils follow the
directions and provides the individual
attention which is necessary in order
to satisfactorily learn how to play."
Field Courses
of Health Class
Being Created
Dispersal of more than 100 physi-
cians, nursesand sanitar y officers
throughout the state to follow the
work of local health offices at first
hand is occurring this week, Dr. John
Sundwall, director of the hygiene and
public health department, stated yes-
Occasion for this action is the field
course period of the federal public
health class, all of whose members
have been sent to the University by
various units of the state health de-
partments. Expenses are paid from
appropriations made to the state de-
partments under a provision of the
Social Security Act, which aims to
improve the calibre and scope of
localized health agencies.
Two weeks of field work will be
carried out, according to Dr. Sund-
wall. During this period the students
will accompany county health offi-
cers, nurses or sanitary officers in the
performance of their duties and will
be inducted into the daily routine.

Business Uncertain'
"Business men were reluctant to
go ahead on extensive programs be-
cause they were not sure just what
the next move would be," he said.
"As soon as the uncertainty was re-
moved, some revival of business was
felt. This factor, coupled with the
somewhat coincidental occurence of
a natural trend upward, was probably
responsible for the activity after the
NRA was invalidated," the dean said.
The NRA was misdirected, the dean
said, since it aimed at relieving the
unemployment situation in the con-
sumers' goods industries, whereas, he
said, the number of unemployed was
gratest in the heavy goods industries.
"This was an instance of priming
the wrong pump," Dean Griffin said,
"inasmuch as it stimulated those in-
dustries where the unemployment
situation was the least severe."

Many clubs which have not met for
two or three years will again meet

ping said. The special effort being
made to gather all alumni together
for the program has succeeded in
causing clubs which have fallen away
to take a renewed interest in their
club organization and plan a large
meeting. In this manner the cards
sent to each alumnus advising him
or her of the program may have
helped, he said.
More than 83,000 of these cards
were sent to active alumni, leaving
out only a few thousand who were
thought to be too far away to hear
