A New Departure
For Varsity Night
Six campus bigwigs and the
University Varsity Band will com-
bine talents to put on the third an-
nual Varsity Night show, Oct. 18.
Departing from the customary
amateur show this year, a "Kampus
Kwiz," modelled on the well-known .
radio show, "Kay Kayser's Klass,"
is being planned. Tentatively, it. is
expected to select three men and
three women from among campus
figures who will act as contestants,

winners, one man and one woman
will be pitted against each other in
the final bout.

inations may be submitted by stu-
dents and faculty. Tables will be
placed on the campus during the
second week of school at which time

Glee Clubs Open
To Freshmen
Music Classes Appeal To
Many Students Yearly
Men's and women's glee clubs, the
only campus organizations in which
first semester freshmen may actively
participate, draw a large number of
the musically inclined each year, of-
fering an excellent opportunity for
vocal achievement in group training.
The freshman men's glee club is
open to all first semester freshmen
who wish to join and who in their
second semester become eligible for
membership in the Men's Varsity Glee
Club. Under the direction of Prof.
David Mattern of the School of Vlusic,
the Varsity Club meets twice weekly
at the Union and is limited to about
60 men. Featured among its activities
are regular broadcasts from Morris
Hall over radio station WJR, plus fre-
quent ~appearances at campus social
functions. Annual concert tours are
made in which the men are guests of
out-of-state colleges and organiza-
The women have a similar organi-
zation, offering a freshman glee club
to first semester freshmen who in
their second semester become eligible
for "the TUniversity of Michigan Wo-
men's Glee Club. This group, once
known as the Stanley Chorus in honor
of Dr. Albert Stanley who was ;a for-
mer director of the School of Music,
has been open to women since 1927

"The B.M.O.C.'s organization" is the
description campus lore has tacked
onto Men's Council. Translated for
the benefit of the incoming fresh-
men B.M.O.C. means big men onj
campus. But despite the joshing the
Council remains cne of the really im I
portant extra-curricular activities. '
It is the general duty of the Coun-
cil to regulate and c-ordinate cam-
pus activities and through its im-
portant Judiciary Committee, it in-
vestigates all cases of general dis-
cipline referred to it by the schools
and colleges, and reports on its find-
Revive Black Friday
In addition the Council supervises
and administrates class elections, pep ,
rallies, class .games and functions of
the sort. The traditional Black Fri-
day frsh-soph war, when pants are
at a premium, and the inter-class
rush the following day, were revived
and reinstated as a campus institution
last year through the efforts of the
Men's Council.
The Council arranged and conduct-t
ed pep rallies before the Michigant
State game and the Minnesota game.
They do not claim credit fr the riot
that took place after the rally the

Toward the end of the second 1
semester last year the Council aided
in conducting Swingout, traditional
seior pre-commencement march.
Hold Campus Elections 1
The climaxing event of the year
was the all-campus elections that
were held by the Council late in the
semester. Forty-four students were
nominated for 18 psts on the Boardt
in Control of Student Publications,,
the Board in Control of Athletics, the
Union and the Men's ~ouncil itself.
More than 1,400 students voted, a
number far exceeding any preceeding
elections, and electioneering and gen-
eral interest in the elections reached
a new high.
The council, at its last meeting of
the year passed a resolution to reor-
ganize class elections and the general
campus elections in order to insure
a more practical system of voting
and "eliminate dirty politics." The
tentative plan proposes the abolition,
of all but senior class elections and
would establish a campus-wide elec-
tion of an electoral college to choose
student members for the same posi-
tions previously voted for in the all-
campus elections. The details of the
plan will be worked out as soon as
possible this year, according to Fred
Luebke, '38E, president of the Coun-
Make Plans For Year
The first meeting of the Council
will be held during the first week
of classes, Luebke stated, and the pro-
posal to hold Homecoming, traditional
"return of the native" day for alumni,
on the day of the Illinois game, will
be voted on. General plans for the
year and the Michigan State .game
pep rally will be made.
The Council is composed of the
president of the Intrafraternity Coun-
cil, the president of the Union, the
recording secretary of the Union, the
president of the Student Religious
Associatipn, the managing editor of
the Daily, the president of the Engi-
neering Council, and the presidents

and ex-presidents of Sphinx and Tri-
angles, and in addition eight elective
members. Three members are elected
from the literary school, and one from
the forestry, architecture, music, and
business administration schools. Don-
ald F. Zimmermann, '39 F&C, and
Don Belden, '39, are the vice-president
and secretary of the Council, respec-

Zoo Of All Michigan Animals
To Be Constructed Near Hospitl

A zoological garden composed en-
tirely of Michigan aninmals in their
natural environment will soon be
constructed on 40 acres of wasteland
to the north and east of University<
The zoo, which will be the main1
feature of an outdoor.museum and
park, was developed under the in-1
itiative of Prof. C. B. Troedson, an
architect of the University of Cal-'
ifornia who was an exchange profes-
sor on the Summer School faculty.
Professor Troedson interested a cam-
pus zoologist in the plan and the two'
carried it to officials of the admin-
istration, who have already approved
it. It is expected that work on the1
project will be begun this fall, with
the opening to be next summer. A
WPA grant is expected to provide!
the money.

An improvement in the land about
the hospital has already been
planned, with a picnic ground being
considered. The site, is located
along the Huron River from which
water for the streams and an'' ar-
tificial lake will be pumped. The ani-
mals at present in the small zoo on
the grounds. of the University Mu-
seum will form the nucleus of the
wild life section of the new zoo.
There will be no fences or cages but
instead the animals will be confined
by precipices and moats following the
construction technique of the De-
troit Zoo in Royal Oak.
Animals to be seen will be bears,
bob-cats, beavers, skunks, muskrats,
otters, martens, deer, moose and
more than 100 other Michigan ani-
mals. All are expected to become
tame in due time,
