Prof. Quiz, in the person of Prof.
John L. Brumm of the journalism
department, will take the spotlight
in the second section of the show to
conduct his "Kampus Kwiz." Profes-
sor Revelli explained that six students
will be selected from the audience at
large to assist with the "Kwiz." Ques-
tions from a selected list dealing with
current events, Michigan athletics and
various other topics will be posed by
Prof. Quiz and prizes will be awarded
for the most interesting question and
for the largest number of correct
answers. Approximately $50 is being
offered in prize money.
The entire show, expected to run
not more than two hours in all, will
conclude with a snappy drill exhibi-
tion by the internationally famous
Jackson Zouaves, Professor Revelli
continued, and a surprise is in store
for those who think they have seen
the tops in drilf teams. The Zouaves
have succeeded in achieving the un-
believable marching speed of 320 steps
per minute, Professor Revelli re-
marked, whereas the ordinary drill
team seldom exceeds 120! The Zouaves
have appeared before clamoring
crowds in Rome, London and Paris
as well as stealing the show at the
recent Los Angeles American Legion
Convention, he added.
The proceeds of Varsity Night are
to help send the Band to the Yale
Bowl to spur the football team on in
its encounter with the Yale Bulldogs
on Oct. 22.

'Rub Shoulders In Radio Library

Abbot, Founder, Declares
5,000 Piece Collection Is
First Of Kind In World
"Old Strike cigarettes give you
more throat comfort for your money."
Continuities such as this and many
others may be read in the radio li-
brary of the University Broadcasting
Service at Morris Hall.
Started last April by Prof. Waldo
M. Abbot, director of the Broadcast-
ing Service, with a nucleus of copies
of radio talks given by faculty mem-
bers over a period of 14 years, the
library has increased to approxi-
mately 5,000 pieces, containing 1,500
scripts of plays, 600 continuities of
news broadcasts, surveys, publicity,
and many other types of radio copy
from radio stars, advertising agencies'
and radio stations all over the United
The aim of the library, which is the
first of its kind in the world, Profes-
sor Abbot said, is to provide a means
by which students in broadcasting
can study what is being presented in
professional circles and to formulate
a history of radio. At present con-
tinuities have greater value than any-
thingelse in the library, but ulti-
mately the publicity and surveys sent
in by different stations will be of
research value to students in adver-
tising and broadcasting, he added.
The Broadcasting Services has en-
countered difficulty in obtaining
copies of scripts because these are
prepared in many instances by ad-
Fresh Air Camp
Scene Of Outing
International Center Plans
Trip Next Weekend
The University Fresh Air Camp at
Patterson Lake will be the scene of
a two-day outing next weekend
planned for foreign and American
students by the staff of the Interna-
tional Center. The purpose of the trip
is primarily recreational, and all the
facilities of the modern camp will be
at the disposal of the group.
The camp is ideally situated. On its
200 acres are several small lakes,
woods, and complete equipment for
all forms of athletics. Sixteen new
cabins provide sleeping facilities for
more than 50 campers. A large recre-
ation hall is available for use in case
of inclement weather.
The International Center will take
advantage of the opportunity to use
the camp in order to show foreign
students some of the fun of an out-
of-doors American weekend. A secon-
dary purpose of the outing is to ac-
quaint the students with the socio-
logical work being done by the Uni-
versity, said Howard Holland, Grad.,
assistant to the Director of the In-
ternational Center. It is hoped, he
continued, that American and Canad-
ian students will come on the trip
and meet those from foreign coun-

vertising agencies for a sponsor, or
are the property of the artist on the
program such as Al Jolson or Fred
Allen who hire people to write the
scripts for them, said Professor Abbot.
As a result broadcasting stations do
not have such scripts to give away.
Furthermore, he continued, many
scripts are prepared for broadcasting,
given over the air and then discarded.
In addition to the scripts, the li-
brary contains a scrapbook donated]
by General Electric Co., containing
every newspaper clipping dealing with
television since its inception. This is
continually being augmented by the
Broadcasting Service and as a result
will form a complete history of tele-
vision, Professor Abbot stated. The
Service. has also kept clippings on
radio from the New York Times noted
radio pages.
A start on a transcription library
of various commercial programs as
well as of sustained dramatic pro-
grams has been made this fall in ad-
dition to the manuscript and printed
material, Professor Abbot said. These
programs will be employed-to examine
the technique used by professionals.
At present there are 350 su';h tran-
scriptions in th library.
In Professor Abbot's personal li-
brary at Morris Hall, there is located
every non-technical book on the sub-
ject of broadcasting except two
which are out of print. The library
also has catalogs of every university
and college with listings of broad-
casting classes.
In addition a teaching exchange
for teachers in broadcasting has been
established by the Service to bring
here copies of assignments and
scripts used in various universities
throughout the nation, Professor Ab-
bot stated.

P re -Med Study
Changes Asked
Zappfe Says Liberal Arts
Preparations Are Poor
Complaining that liberal arts col-
leges do not prepare students proper-
ly for medical school, Dr. Fred C.
Zappfe, executive secretary of the
Association of American Medical Col-
leges, has demanded a revision of pre-
medical curricula
Advisers and deans of liberal arts
colleges do not understand, according
to Dr. Zappfe, that medicine is an
art as well as a science; in fact, more
an art than a science." This attitude,"
he asserts, "is shown by the fact that
they recommend the intensified study
of scientific courses by students plan-
ning to study medicine. Science alone
is not adequate for future physicians."
Dr. Zappfe points out that early
medical schools included studies not
only in basic sciences but in the liberal
arts as well. "But," he continues, "as
the medical curriculum expanded the
basic subjects usually taught in pro-
fessional school were added to the
pre-medical curriculum, thereby dis-
placing arts courses formerly neces-
sary. Later, it even became necessary,
again because of the continuing ex-
pansion of medical knowledge, to
eliminate parts of subjects from the
medical curriculum and to stress the
importance of continuing one's edu-
cation in medicine by post graduate
"While changes were taking place in
medical education, medical school
heads were making careful studies of
every factor which had bearing on
the accomplishment of students," Dr.
Zappfe explains. "They soon learned
that students lacked complete prep-
aration for the study of medicine and
lacked ability to grasp the import of
what the medical school expected
them to do."
