1o Appear April 11
The talented fingers of a former
music student here will play for a
nation Thursday, April 11 when Mar-
lene Fingerle still be featured on Bing
Crosby's Music Hall program over a
national hook-up.'
Miss Fingerle, the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Earl Fingerle of 1230 White
Street, will appear on the program
with her piano partner and teacher,
Harry Fields, former Joulliard fel-
lowship student.
Now a student at Bard's Music and
Dramatic School in Los Angeles, Miss
Fingerle finished her junior year at
the University. She began her studies
at the School of Music at the age of.
eight and was a special student under
Prof. Joseph Brinkman. However,
deciding at the end of her junior year
that she did not wish to become a
teacher of music, she left the Univer-
sity to study at Bard's. She is study-
ing both piano and voice.
While on campus, Miss Fingerle
appeared in several Play Production
Jpresentations and wrote two musical
composition8 for the Junior Girls
Play. She was vice-president of the
Stanley Chorus, a member of the
Choral Union and served in the Soph-
omore Cabaret.
Miss Fingerle made her concert de-
but last November at the Masonic
Auditorium in Los Angeles. On Cros-

H ealt h Departnient
Starts Rabies Drive,
Dr. Emerson Says
The State Health Department is
gathering its forces in a drive to
stamp out rabies in Southern Mich-
igan and four laboratories are as-
signed to diagnose this d.sease, Dr.
Herbert W. Emerson, director of the
University's Pasteur Institute stated
in an interview yesterday.
Dr. Emerson expressed his regret,
however, that the Health Depart-
ment did not give the people the
option whether dogs should be quar-
antined or vaccinated. "It is my
contention that such a plan would
have resulted in less resistence on
the part of the citizens," he declared.
He suggested that if the Health
Department would have allowed the
47 counties affected by the quaran-
tine to vote upon the issue they
would have had more enthusiastic
The results in those counties elect-
ing vaccination for dogs would have
afforded valuable data as to the
value of vaccination, and the com-
parative outcome between counties
voting for quarantine and those
electing vaccination would have pro-
vided the Health Department with
valuable infor antion in determining
which method would be most satis-
factory to recommend or use at a
future date, '.0 Emerson maintained.

Prof. E. Bright Wilson, Jr., of Har-
vard University will speak on "The
[nternal Motions of Molecules and
Their Infra-red Spectra" at 4:15 p.m.
today, in Room 303, Chemistry Build-
The lecture is sponsored by the
local chapter of the American Chem-
ical Society, and is open to the pub-
Professor Wilson will deal with the
various ways in which different atoms
in molecules can move in respect to
each other, and with the infra-red
spectra of the atoms. For the past
several years Professor Wilson has
been especially interested in this pro-
blem, and with infra-red absorption
spectra, said Dr. L. 0. Brockway of
the chemistry department, who is in
charge of the American Chemical
Society lectures in Ann Arbor.
Winner in 1937 of the Pure Chem-
istry award of the American Chemical
Society, Professor Wilson is a mem-
ber of the faculty of the Harvard
chemistry department. In 1937 he
was in Ann Arbor in connection with
the summer symposium of the Phys-
ics department which dealt that year
with infra-red spectra.

Arranged By Belgian
. Prof. Percival Price, University car-

a series of spring carillon concerts at
7 p.m. today.
The music for the concert has been
arranged by Gustaaf Nees, City Caril-,
lcnneur, Mechlin, Belgium, who also
wrote the compositions to be played
in the last half of the concert.
The first group consists of selec-
tions from Netherlands composers,

Writiig" the practice of preparing
themes and reports for some one else's
class work, gets a thumbs-down ex-
pression of opinion from three-fourths
of American college students.
What may be more surprising to.
some. however, is that the other
fourth is either indifferent or openly
in approval. These are the results
of a poll conducted by the Student
Opinion Surveys of America, collegiate
rampling organization of the under-
graduate press, of which the Michi-
gan Daily is a member.
"What is your opinion of the prac-
tice of students paying ghost writers
to prepare themes and term papers
for them?" was the question present-

Disapproving were 75 per cent; in-
different were 10 per cent; approving
were 15 per cent.
Answers to the query were tabulated
by the interviewers in five different
categories to indicate the intensity
of feeling on this issue. These re-
sults are given below:
Strongly opposed ... 54 per cent
Mildly opposed.......21 per cent
Indifferent..........10 per cent
Mildly in favor .......8 per cent
Strongly in favor......7 per cent
Significantly it may be noticed that
a majority of students, 54 per cent, is
in the strongly-opposed class. Also,
the trend of approval, looking down
the preceding row of figures, dwindles
down to a mere 7 per cent at a rapid
The chief argument of those who
favor ghost writing is that in effect
it often helps students by giving them
more time to study for miore import-
ant and pressing courses. On the
other hand, the majority of those op-
posed condemned it as plain scholas-
tic dishonesty.

VIOLA STEIN - Experienced typist
and notary public. excellent work,

knew the fortune that was paid the Hawkinses
when the railroad came through in '78 and how
they never spent or banked a cent of it. r
The old-time country editor was like that. He
knew his county like the back of his hand, from the
secret thoughts of the supervisors to the last thank-
you-marm on a dead-end road.
He knew every man, woman, and child and their
Great-Aunt Nellie who ran off with the lightning-
rod agent. He knew the story of every yellow old
record in the courthouse-and what the boys were
laughing at in the livery stable last Sunday. He
knew what chance the town had of getting that
button factory, and why the parsonage would have
a new tenant soon.
1 The people he wrote for were just as much an
open book to him as the news he wrote for them.
He wasn't being quaint when he put the results of
the school spelidown on page one, or filled five
pages with country correspondence. That was meat
and drink to the folks out on the R.F.D. routes-
far more important than the Boer War or even
silver at 16 to 1-and he knew it.
That old-time country editor had grasp... com-
plete, integrated understanding of all the news

Economics, world politics, finance, industrial man-
agement, material resources, labor, social theory-
they all began to matter somehow. They got you
into wars and strikes and hard times. Science be-
gan to matter when diphtheria and t.b. were found
not to be acts of God. Art began to matter when
your daughter carne back from Paris or Peoria call-
ing you a Philistine.
America's mind, stretching, pushing out its ho-
rizons, called for more news... more kinds of
news...news from beyond the railroad depot. And
the news poured in-from the just-hatched wire
services, from specialists of all kinds, from the
syndicates, the feature writers, the correspondents,
Soon the old one-man grasp was gone. The tor-
rent of news was too great and too swift, its sources
too many and too remote, for any one man to han-
dle and absorb it all.
And if the editor was swamped, the reader was
drowned. In self-defense, he learned to pick his way
about his newspaper, snatching a bit here and a bit
there, mostly according to the ingenuity of the
headline-writer. Often he missed news of impor-
tance; often he failed to see what a series of day-by-
day stories added up to in
the end.

That somebody turned out to be The Weekly
Newsmagazine. With its advantage of time for re-
flection and discussion, the Newsmagazine made
this task its single-minded purpose. It set out to
do the country editor's job with a world-wide
scope and on a national scale.
.To take all the week's news and make the pic-
ture make sense to the average intelligent Amer-
ican. To set it against a fully comprehended back-
ground. To write it vividly, compactly, forcefully
with full appreciation of the mind for which it
is intended ... with the touch of human under-
standing that brings people and events to moving,
breathing life.
The Newsmagazine is written by experts, but
never far experts. No story in TIME can go gallop-
ing off on a hobby; it must be paced firmly and
smoothly to the brisk stride of the whole magazine,
whether the subject is world affairs or politics, or
business or finance, or medicine, religion, or the
That is why TIME seems to be written by one
man, who knows TIME readers as the old-time coun-
try editor knew the folks in his county. That is
why the average TIME reader starts at the begin-
ning and goes through to the end, feeling that
every line gives him something that he wants and
needs and can use.
This is one of. a series of advertisements in
which the Editors of TIME hope to give College
Studentsa clearer picture of the world of news-
gathering, news-writing, and news-reading--and
the part TIME plays in helping you to grasp,
measure, and use the history of your lifetime as
you live the story of your life.
