Big, Hammet Says
The New York World's Fair, accord-
ing to Prof. Ralph W. Hammet of the
College of Architecture, will probably
complete the popularization of mod-
ern architecture which was begun in
1933 by the Chicago World's Fair.
Great expositions, he continued, are
often followed by periods of building.
similar to that of the exposition. The
Chicago fair of 1898, he recalled,
started a wave of building in classic
forms which lasted through a num-
ber of succeeding fairs.
The New York fair buildings, he
declared, are not architecture of the
suture but architecture of the pres-
ent, and dramatically demonstrate
the unlimited forms which are made
possible by modern materials. Mod-
ern architecture, he explained, is

The Glee Club last night climaxed
a year of activities on campus and on
special singing tours in a banquet
celebrating its eightieth year of exis-
tence and the installation of its new
officers at the Union.
Among the activities sponsored by
the club, are out city sings for alum-
ni groups, and concerts at confer-
ences and banquets of organizations
meeting in Ann Arbor. Trips taken
during the first semester of the year,
took the Glee Club to Monroe where
they sang for -members of the Ex-
change Club and to Mt. Clemens for
church services.
The Republican Party Banquet, a
state Kiwanis meeting and a ban-
quet at the State Highway Confer-
ence heard the club. Glee Club mem-
bers also sing at banquets of the!
"M" Club.
During the year, three sings over
the University-WJR hookup were
given, programs which were broad-
cast from the campus studios in Mor-
ris Hall. The Club was featured on
the world wide broadcast of the Uni-
versity Birthday Party in which num-
erous school organizations partici-
In the second semester's activities,
the club was featured in Saginaw in
a concert given in conjunction with
the Saginaw Civic Orchestra. Later
members of the North Central Music
Educator's Conference were enter-
tained in Detroit at a meeting there.
High point in the activities of the
group in connection with their work
in accommodating various Michigan
alumni groups is the annual spring
trip, made this year to New York
City. Among the places at which con-
certs were given was at Lewistown,
N.Y., where an alumni-sponsored
community affair was entertained,
Buffalo, N.Y., for an advertising
group and Rochester, N.Y. where in
competition 'with the Fordham Glee
Club which was in town at the same
time, they sang for another alumni
group. Climax of this trip was a
large Michigan alumni party at the
Commodore in New York City.
