Michigan Graduate Gains Fame
As Movies Youngest Director

(Editor's Note: This is the second in a
series of articles on Michigan alumni
who "made good')

In six years since he left the Mich-
igan campus, S. Sylvan Simon has
finished an apprenticeship on the
stage and gone on to become Holly-
wood's youngest and fas.test-rising
Only 28 years old, Simon won his
A.B. degre here in 1932 and then
took a year of law. The explanation
for this continued interest in higher
education (he went on to Columbia
after he left Ann Arbor) is simple. A
bequest which provided him with an
income specified that when he fin-
ished school there'd be no more
money for him. So Simon kept on

he was established in stage work.
Biggest of the legitimate productions
he directed was "Girls in Uniform"
although his "Lysistrata" and "Ode
to a Grecian Urn" both won acclaim.
After a brief tour as stage director
for the road company of "The Dyb-
buk," Simon was signed by Univer-
sal Pictures and settled on the coast.I
For Universal he directed five pic-
tures, "A Girl With Ideas," "Prescrip-
tion for Romance," "The Nurse From
Brooklyn," "The Crime of Dr. Hal-
lett" and "The Road to Reno." !
Mervyn LeRoy, "boy genius" of
Hollywood and Metro-Goldwyn-May-
er producer, won Simon his next
break. Seing Simon's test of an act-
ress, LeRoy declared: "I don't want
the girl but I do want the director."
When his Universal contract expired
LeRoy immediately put Simon under
a long-term contract to M-G-M.
Simon's first M-G-M assignment
was, strangely, to direct another
Michigan graduate, Ruth Hussey, in
"Spring Madness" which also includ-
ed Lew Ayres, Maureen O'Sullivan

tee on the Henry Russel Award re-'
quests the members of the variousl
faculties to submit nominations for!
this distinction for the year 1939.
Nomination blanks have been sent #
to each of the heads of the severalj
departments of instruction in the
University and to the deans or ad-1

al blanks on request.
The attention of the various facul-
ties is called to the statement on the
blanks concerning the nature of the
award and the qualifications which
will guide the Committee in the selec-
tion of the recipient. It is desirable
that consideration be given to all
eligible faculty members who have
rendered conspicuous service to the
University, and that full information

dates nominated.
It is customary to announce the
award at the time of the Henry Rus-
sel Lecture, which may take place

March. It is therefore requested
that all nominations, accompanied by
supporting material, be submitted to
