Michilodeon Brings Carnival
Spirit With Clowns And Kisses

-Daily Photo by Will Sapp
Michilodeon, a stage coach, horses and clowns were all quite thrill-
ing to these two little fellows when the Michilodeon carriage stopped
in front of the Union yesterday noon.

The Michigan campus got its first
taste of Michilodegn carnival spirit
A crew of student clowns - headed
by freshmen Jack Brackett and Clar-
ence Carlson - dashed around the
campus yesterday noon. in a horse-1
drawn 1841 stage-coach tossing can-
dy kisses and gum to the crowds
And enticing co-eds to ride with them
in the carriage.
Around noontime the stage coach
suddenly appeared at the Kappa and
Thetansorority houses and at Sigma
Chi and Delta Upsilon: to drop' off
basketfulls of kisses, candy and gum.
Michilodeon, the 1941 Spring Jub-
ilee, will make a two-night stand Fri-
day and Saturday, May 2 and 3, in
Waterman and Barbour gymnasiums.
Regular circus . acts, fraternity skits,
and dancing are on the schedule, ac-
cording to Charles Heinen, '41E, gen-
eral chairman of the show.,
More than 40 organizations have
entered skits or booths. The Thetas.
are preparing a Can-Can chorus and
the Betas plan to revive the "Follies
Beserk," the hit of the 1939 Michi-
gras celebration.
A doggy-derby is scheduled for fra-
ternity mascots, the Sigma Chi's are
going to present a barber shop quar-
tet and the Theta Delts are already

constructing a bar to be installed at
the show.
Promised to be the biggest carnival
ever presented on the campus since1
the turn of the century, the show will
be a nickel fun-fest, nothing to cost
over five cents, its sponsors claim.
Hillel Group Attends
Hillel night, an annual event at
the Louis Marshall Lodge of B'nai
Brith, was ceelbrated last night when
several members of the Michigan
Hillel traveled into Detroit to enter-
tain the organization.
A flute duet by Beatrice and Ger-
trude Rubin, '44SM, accompanied byI
Eleanor Samuel, '44SM, was a fea-
ture of the program. Jerome Meck-
lenburger, '41E, and Aaron Moyer, '43,f
past and present presidents of the
Hillel Foundation addressed thea
group, and Irving Zeiger acted as
master of ceremonies. Rabbi Jehu-
dah M. Cohen, director of the foun-
dation, gave a short talk and the win-
ner of the Michigan-Michigan State
oratory contest, Herbert London, '43
delivered his prize speech.

Four Outstanding Opera Stars
To Participate In May Festival

Four major opera stars, all new
aces to Ann Arbor, will participate
in the May Festival to be held May
7, 8, 9 and 10 in Hill Auditorium,
;upplementing the contributions of
an imposing list of former favorites
Jarmila Novotna, beautiful Cze-
,horlovakian soprano, new to the
.Tetropolitan Opera Association, ac-
cording to a tabulation of appear-
ances just released from New York
was' surpassed this season in num-
ber of appearances only by a veteran
Kirsten Flagstad.
Has Continental Fame
MadamenNovotna s repertoire i
extensive, and her performances are
so outstanding that she has been
pressed into service as often as op-
portunities presented themselves.
Before coming to America she dis-
tinguished herself particularly in
Prague, Budapest and Salzburg, as
well as at LaScala and Covent Gar-
dens, London.
Suzanne Sten, mezzo-soprano, al-
though young in years, is a veteran
performer, for she began her career
as a major opera singer at an earl3
age. She is ofdAustrian-Hungariar
background, and her principle suc-
cesses before coming to America were
in Vienna, Salzburg, Budapest anc
in the cities of Germany. She was
out of sympathy with conditions
there and left that country before
the war.
Kullman-Yale Man
The other two new faces are both
American, from widely separatec
parts of the country. Charles Kull-
man is a graduate of Yale University
While preparing himself for a medi-
cal career he participated in the
Yale Clee Club, and attracted sc
much attention that he finally shift-
ed his interest entirely to the field
of music.

Texas. He first devoted himself to
,he violin, on which he is an excel-
ent performer. Two years #go he
-won first place in the Metropolitan
Opera Auditions of theAir contest,
and since that time has led a busy
life at the Opera, and in concerts,
where his services are always in de-
Dorothy Maynor and Enid Szan-
tho, soprano and contralto respec-
tively, were both heard in Ann Arbor
at the Festival last year. Their suc-
s cesses were so pronounced that they
