campus Songsters All Yearn
ToSing Like The Birdies Sing

Interfraternity Sing And
Lantern Night To Hold
SpotlightOf The Week
The arias and part harmonies which
have echoed and reechoed through
Ann Arbor the past few weeks have
not been limited to May Festival per-
formers as would-be male and female
songsters swing into form for the
Interfraternity and Lantern Night
Time-out from college life for the
"me-may mis" and the do-si-dos" of
vocalizing is the rule of the day at
fraternities, sororities, and dormi-
tories where visions of another silver
cup to grace the home mantle spur
each individual on to greater effort.
Trials Face Song Leader
Many are the trials and tribula-
tions which face the song leader at
this critical time of year. First, there
is the problem of getting the group
together because it has been found in
the past that the song is much better
on final presentation if therorganiza-
tion" has sung it together at least
Then, as one harassed conductor
put it, there are three fundamental
points to remember: "Expression, ah,
expression is very important, and the
words-they are practically the most
important thing of all, but the notes
-remember the notes, if you don't
remember anything else!" At this
point the instructions have reached
a frenzied tone, and the leader is pre-
pared to begin with renewed energy.
Different Methods Used
* Different houses use different
methods of learning the songs. There
are those who begin early, learn each
part separately and then put the
mastered parts together as a finished
masterpiece. Then there are those
who swing into action a little late and
are forced to start out immediately
with everyone singing together on
different parts. "Of course," says
one follower of this school," the re-

suit at first is a bit julnbled, but
after a couple of days, we begin to
see the light, and if we don't we
abandon patt singing and everyone
carries the melody."
Eliminations Are Held
Finally there is the delicate job
which falls to the leader of telling
those who are not to sing with the
group. Perhaps the quality of their
voices outshines those of their fol-
lowers-or then again perhaps it
doesn't, but anyway they must be
delegated as "listeners" if the fin-
ished product is "to bring home the
