Concerts Show
Value Of Music
To Community
Since its inception a few years
ago, the progress of the Ann Arbor
Civic Orchestra from an eight-piece
orchestra .made up of Methodist
Church members to an all-city pro-
ject, illustrates the value of music
in the community.
Membership which has been lim-
ited in the past to 40 includes sten-
ographers, teachers, students, ma-
chinists, housewives, clerks, profes-
sors and salesmen. At present some
expansion is being contemplated, es-
pecially of string instruments.
The purpose of the Orchestra is to
provide a high caliber playing en-
semble for musical recreation, to pro-
vide training to all interested musi-
cians and to make available musi-
cal programs to other communities
on a non-profit basis.
Complimentary concerts have been
given in communities within a radius
of 40 miles in addition to numerous
Ann Arbor appearances. William R.
Champion, who is in charge of all
instrumental music instruction in the
public schools, has been director of
the Orchestra for the past five years.
Prof. Philip O. Potts, of the engineer-
ing department acts as manager and
Charles Staubach of the romance
languages department, concert mas-
The. annual "Civic Music Night"
in which all of the city's music
groups present a program- jointly
was. instigated by the Orchestra four
years ago. In another yearly presen-
tation, "An Evening of, Ballet", the
Orchestra combines with the Sylvia
Studio of Dance in a ballet concert.
Members of the group took a lead-
ing. part in fostering Ann Arbor's
Music Shell which was completed
within the last year. They presented
five weekly concerts there last sum-
mer in conjunction with programs
sponsored by the City Department
of Recreation.
The Orchestra does not function
under any subsidy or income other
than its recognition as an adult ex-
tension unit of the Ann Arbor school
system and it is thereby privileged
to share the use of certain music and
equipment of the high school. Nei-

Detroit Mayor Was
Average Student

fries, Jr., '23, who Tuesday was elect-
ed mayor of Detroit, was hardly above

ing school here.
His record, preserved in the Alum-
ni Catalog Office, shows that he re-
ceived 13 B's, 26 C's, four D's, one
E and one incomplete.
Thirty-nine year old Mayor Jef-
fries entered Michigan in February,
1916, and received both his A.B. and
LL.B. degrees in 1923. He studied
law for one year at Lincoln's Inn in
London, England, before settling
down in Detroit to practice law.
