Student Chorus
Rehearses For
'Great Vesper'
Fraternities, Sororities,
University Glee Club
illjoin In Program
Sixty male and female voices,
drawn from campus fraternities, sor-
orities, and the University Glee Club,
have been rehearsing for two weeks
under the direction of Dr. Palmer
Christian for their role in the Great
Vesper, which will be sung here March
27 in Hill Auditorium. The student
choruses, who will support the Lat-
vian Singers in their rendition of
the Greek Orthodox Church services,I
have been organized by Interfrater-I
nity and Panhellenic Councils.
The Latvian Singers, led by Aus-'
tris S. Wihtol, will conduct the serv-
ices while the students will portray
the congregation and the antiphon-
al chorus. The chorus, which will be
located in the balcony, will sing the
"Hallelujahs" and the "congregation"
will recite the Lord's Prayer and the
creed of the Greek Orthodox Church.
According to Dr. Christian, the
most difficult problem presented by
the project. has been the learning of
the liturgies, which will be sung from
memory. The music, .while in an
impressive church vein, is compara-
ively uncomplicated. Dr. Christian
summed up the student attitude to-
wards this non-sectarian religious
presentation when he declared, "The
response to this project has been
eminently satisfactory. The enthus-
iasm of the chorus members for the
music and their part in its presenta-
tion is all that could be desired."

ROTC Riflemen
End Competition
With Four Wins
Four wins and five losses was the
record accorded the University ROTC
rifle team as they finished their Big
Ten competitions with an 1881 to
1842 loss to Iowa in their final match
of the series, Verne C. Kennedy, Jr.,
'42E, captain of the team, announcedI
Not a total loss, however, last
week's shooting also brought a 37781
I to 3650 victory over a University of
California squad, with Gordon A.
Stumpf, '41E; Richard O. Jones,
-43E, Kennedy, Harry E. Altman,
'43E, and Wallace J. Wilkie. '43E,{
turning in the high scores.'
Results received earlier gave the
Michigan squad another defeat at the
hands of Minnesota's Big Ten cham-
pions, 1889 to 1846. In this match
Kennedy turned in a new high score
for the year, shooting a 384 out of
Shooting high scores in the Iowa
match were Stumpf, Jones, Kennedy,
Wilkie and Altman, in that order.
Although final Big Ten results have
not yet been received by the ROTC
department, it is very probable that
the Michigan squad will finish in
sixth or seventh place.

School Experiment
Here In Ann Arbor
Has Proved Worth
Now nearly three years old, the
Ann Arbor Cooperative Nursery
School, located in the Angell School,
has developed from an experiment in
child and parent education into a
ell-established pre-school communi-
ty with "graduates" in several of the
local elementary schools.
Trial and error learning is respon-
sible in part for the progress of the
Nursery School, together with a well-
qualified teacher, a supply of text-
books on nursery school methods and
an eager group of parents and ad-
Recently the group has published
an account of its activities entitled
"Workbook of the Ann Arbor Coop-
erative Nursery School." This book-1
let should be of considerable value
to those who plan to start cooperative
nursery schools in their own com-

Still hoping faithfully in the even-
tual coming of Spring, the Big Ten
tried to keep up its chin this week
by centering its interest in campus
activities and troubles.
Wisconsin and Illinois are having
trouble with their respective Men's
Unions. At Wisconsin they're trying
to change the method of electing the
Union president. The proposed plan
will call for election by the out-
coming Union Council rather than
the incoming one. Illinois stu-
dents are exhibiting concern over the
dispute about what should be done
with the money taken in at the Union
dances. A special committee has been
appointed to investigate the use of
the Union.
There's a report making the rounds
at Chicago that Friars, organization
similar to Mimes, has been reinstated
by the University authorities. The
Friars had been banned because of
an unpaid debt. Ohio State was
shocked during the week when a stu-
dent Senator charged that all class
officers were useless!
Grad Club Will Plan
Activities For Future
At Meeting Today
When is a club not a club?
This is the question which the
Graduate Education Club will seek
to answer at a "disorganization"
meeting at 4:15 p.m. today in the
Library of the University Elementary
The meeting, which is open to all
graduate students in Education, is for
the purpose of determining whether
or not to continue the activities of
the organization.
Many of the educational lectures
and social events which were former-
ly sponsored by the Club are now
provided through other channels.
If sufficient interest is apparent,
the Club will reorganize to meet
definite needs for its existence.
