Of NewOrganization ,
Meeting Is Planned
(Special To The Daly)
DETROIT, Jan. 23.-The organiza-;
tion committee of the proposed Uni-
versity of Michigan Student Social!
Worker's Club met yesterday at the3
Institute of 'Public and Social Ad-
ministration, the university graduatei
school of social work, to lay the foun-
dation and to outline the general ob-
jectives of the club.
In addition to selecting offices and
determining the rules of parliamen-
tary procedure to be followed by the
club, the organization committee also
drew up five main objectives toward
which the organization should strive.
Stessed was the importance of pro-
moting student-faculty relations in
the Institute, which is an extension
branch of the University graduate;
school. Other objectives listed in-;
clude the attainment of a fuller in-
terpretation of social work, the insti-
tution of job placement services for
students, the encouragment of social
functions in the institute and the
publication of a social work student's
A general meeting of the club will
be called during the third week of)
the second semester at which meet-
ing permanent officers, chosen from1
among the entire student body of the]
Institute, will be nominated for the
administrative and committee posi-]
tions of the club.

Featured Rle
In 'Balalaka'
Dalies Frantz Given Part
Because Of Musical
And Acting Ability 1
One of the featured roles in Metro-1
Goldwyn-Mayer's new musical hit,1
"Balalaika," demanded a combination1
of qualities that were beyond the1
scope of most of Hollywood's stars.
The role called for a good actor and1
an expert pianist.
As a result of the casting office's
search, the role was given to Dalies
Frantz, who received his Bachelor]
of Music degree here in 1930.
For Frantz had demonstrated his]
ability in both fields. He went to
Hollywood with the reputation of be-1
ing one of America's most promising
young concert pianists, after a bril-
liant debut with Stokowski in 1934
and six coast-to-coast concert tours.
He got his acting start through1
Nelson Eddy, who has the male lead)
of "Balalaika." Eddy and JeannetteI
MacDonald were presenting a broad-
cast sequence of "Sweethearts" in
Radio City and Frantz was their ac-
companist. Frantz made such a fav-
orable impression that he was screen-
tested by MGM and awarded a con-)
Born in Lafayette, Colo., Frantz
began his study of the piano at an)
early age and continued his musical
preparation at Huntington Prep
School in Boston and at the Univer-
sity. He later studied in Europe.
Followinghis debut with Stokow-'
ski in New York, Frantz appeared
with all of the leading symphony or-
chestras, in Philadelphia, Chicago,
Detroit, Portland, Cleveland, Minne-

apolis, St. Louis, Toronto, Montreal
and Cincinnati. He was also a guest
artist on the Ford broadcasts and the
Kraft programs, and will appear at
the Hollywood Bowl concerts during
the summer season.
As in the case of Eddy, Frantz will
not desert concert work entirely for
the screen. His contract permits him
two months of each year for a con-
cert tour, and he devotes three hours
a day to practice.
Wright Discusses
U.S. Intervention
If America enters the present war,
it will not result in making possible
a better peace, but it will, as in the
last war, crush the forces of peace
that are already strengthening in the
belligerent countries, Mr. Thomas
Wright, national director of the New
America mpvement said yesterday'in
a talk to the Ann Arbor unit of the
The only solution that offers itself
to our opposing the relentless forces
drawing us into the war is to keep
our economy from adapting itself un-
naturally to war production, Mr.
Wright said. American industry must
be expanded, it is true, he said, but
it must be expanded in a democratic
manner and must produce for the
American consumer anld must not be
tirned into a vast producer of capital

over the state is composed of water
plants and other vegetation. An-
other third is composed of insects,
crayfish, carrion, etc. Only about
one-third of the food of this turtle,"
continued Mr. Lagler, "is composed
of game fish. It would seem, then,
that money spent for controlling the
snapping turtle is wasted and might
better be spent increasing the carry-
ing capacity of angling waters for
game fish by environmental improve-
ments." These conclusions in gen-
eral, according to Mr. Lagler, apply

to most other forms studied to date.
One of Mr. Lagler's accomplish-
ments which effects the Michigan
angler, greatly deals with the Ameri-
can Merganser, commonly known as
"fish duck." These birds normally
occur in large quantitiesdduring the
late fall or early spring on the shal-
low waters of the great lakes around
Michigan. Occasionally the sudden
freezing of these waters forces large
numbers of these birds into the trout
waters of. tributary streams, where
the birds feed on game trout. Con-
centrations on such streams are
known to have been in excess of 100
birds to a mile.
