Link Training
To Be Offered
This Summer
Students Urged To Enroll
For CPT Early; Course
Valuable To Aviators
Students enrolling in the Summer
Session Civilian Pilot Training Pri-
mary Course will be given a course
in flying'on the Link Trainer before
beginning actual flight instruction at
the Ann Arbor Airport, Prof. Emer-
son W. Conlon, of the aeronautical
engineering department announced
Students who enroll early will be
divided into two groups, one of which
will receive five hours and the other
two hours. Since there will be 40
primary students in the summer
course, it is doubtful whether time
will permit the giving of Link Trainer
instruction to all who enroll.
Students who plan to fly during the
summer should make application at
the office of Prof. Conlon in the
East Engineering Building as soon as
The experimental program in Link
Trainer instruction has been given
in four consecutive CPT courses. More
than 120 students have received some
Link training. It has proven quite
successful, -according to Dr. Edward
B. Greene of the psychology depart-'
ment and supervisor of the experi-
mental project, and is of considerable
value to students when they begin
their actual flying course.

tion of Flying Clubs awarded Michi-
gan the Grover Loening Memorial

Arthur Murrov

"SAE Entertains Conrad Na gel,
Or Is The Opposite The Case?

SAE played host to Conrad Nagel
The celebrated actor was special
dinner guest and was given a place at
the head of the table. After dinner
was over, an informal "bull-session"
took place on the porch, with Conrad
Nagel reminiscing - and the SAE
boys on the receiving end.
"You just can't go out on the porch
to enjoy yourself in California," the
actor began off-hand. "The evenings
get cool before you know it. So I'll
certainly make the most of this."
Hines Interrupted
He was interrupted at this point
with the arrival of Phelps Hines,
'42A, who brought out several of the
paintings he had done for the recent
"Revenoors Rustle" dance given by
the fraternity.
After the works of art had received
their proper attention and a picture
had been taken of the celebrity, Con-
rad Nagel began telling of the time
he first went into the navy during
the World War.
"At the time I got in," he said,
"I didn't know that I was just about
the lowest gob a person could be.
I assumed a navy position was like
any other job."
Makes Suit Tailored Uniform
"Not having any navy outfit at the
time, I had my tailor make me up
one and picked out all sorts of in-
signias to go on it."
"I even went so far as to be driven
to the boat!" the famous actor
laughed. "Before that day was over,
I had learned my lesson, though."
He continued by laying that the

other "gobs" all took him for a rear-
admiral and accorded him the court-
eous salute befitting such a rank.

"And I didn't even know how to go W
about getting on the ship!"
"No sooner did I get on deck than Maria

Walt Whitman on Records
New Don Cossack Album
Pinza and Rethberg Sing
A cantata based on the poems
of Walt Whitman has beencom-
posed by George Kleinsinger. Sung
by John Charles .Thomas, accom-
panied by chorus and orchestra,
it is issued in Victor Album 777
($2.50). Although the general pat-
tern is modeled after the highly
successful Ballad for Americans as
sung by Paul Robeson, the musical
detail is entirely original. The
simplicity of \the solo work and
the vigor of the choral singing
provide strong, appropriate at-
mosphere for the Whitman poetry
-which, fortunately, has not been
tampered with to suit the con-
venience of the composer.
General Platoff's Don Cossack
Choir has done an album of Rus-
sian Liturgical Music, sung in Rus-
sian. This Victor album 768 ($3.50)
includes Gretchaninoff's Credo,
Tschaikowsky's Blessed Be The
Lord, Archangelsky's Inspire My
Prayer, 0 Lord, Bahkmetieff's Re-
qiem, Lomakin's Song of The Ser-
aphim And Cherubim, and two
other shorter works. One of the
many remarkable effects achieved
by the Chorus is the accompani-
ment to the soloist in the Credo,
in which the choir produces the
deep, metallic sounds of Russian
church bells.
Admirers of Ezio Pinza and
Elisabeth Rethberg will be inter-
ested to learn that they have
done an album
of Mozart Ar- ~
ias and Duets.
This Victor al-
bum 783 ($3.00)
contains three
duets and an
aria from the
Marriage of Fi-
garo, and a duet
from Don Gio-
vanni. In direc-
ting the Victor

Salvatore Baccaloni does two
arias from Don Giovanni on Col-

a way that explains his immense-

voice and the breadth of his hu-
mor are truly remarkable.
In the popular instrumental
field, T. Dorsey's Deep River has
become a best seller in less than
a week, to join Harry James' Mu-
sic Makers and Glenn Miller's The

Spirit Is Willing,
That frequently and frantically
requested Swedish serenade, the
