(Editor's Note: Ton Thumb, who can't
break a precedent by getting cultural

to use The Mite's space to air his views

Leopold Stokowski and the All
American Youth Orchesta played n
Detroit Thursday night in a gigantic
barn, with selections orchestrated for
symphony orchestra, airplane, cig-
arette lighter, livestock and Governor
Van Wagoner. Altogether it was a
colossal monument to practically
The shindig was held in the tre-
mendous State Fair Coliseum underI
the sponsorship of the Detroit Junior1
Board of Commerce, and all profit
was turned over to the Detroit Sym-
phony Orchestra. Unfortunately for
all concerned, I am sure that the prof-
it was so slight that the. Detroit'
Symphony won't get enough for a new
bassoon. It seems that the Junior
Board of Commerce made a slight
mistake in calculation.
They figured that the Grosse
Pointe set was the personification
of culture in Detroit, and they
priced the tickets accordingly. Tick-
ets near the front cost $3.30, and
cthers further back $2.20 and $1.10.
The bleacher seats in the very rear
of the vast Madison-Square-Gard-
en-sized place went for 55 cents
The Jr. B of C must have been
surprised no end when, after the con-
cert started at 9:15 p.m. (it was
scheduled for 8:30 p.m.) there
were but a handful of spectators in
the $3.30, $2.20 and $1.10 seats and
the 55 cent seats were almost
full. It must have shook the young
fellows of the Jr. B of C to discover
that the Grosse Pointe set were too
engrossed in driving their convertible
coupes around upstate, their hair fly-
ing wildly, or occupied with business
to take a little time out for "cul-
Yes, the boys and girls who live
along Nottingham Road didn't turn
out like the honest folk in the
East Dearborn section. Most of the
people came in buses. Limousines
were noticeably lacking. And so
were occupants in the $3.30 seats.
Until after the intermission. Then
the $3.30 seats were full and the 55-
centers empty. But it's only natural.
In case you've never been to the
Coliseum, it's a large place where
they usually hold rodeos and circuses.
It has a smell of livestock about it
and the floor is the good earth, cov-
ered with something that looks like
sawdust (gad, I hope it was!). None
of the ushers seemed to know where
section A was and we never found
row F, after we did finally reach
section A. We just kicked an old lady
down two rows (nobody write a letter
to the editor; we asked her and she
was nobody's mother) and took her
From where we sat, you couldn't
tell Stokowski from a peanut sales-
man, but you could hear the music,
which, incidentally, was pretty good
when there was no interference.
During the second movement of

3eethoven's Fifth, an airplane droned
above, bringing the father of the
symphony up to date. In the tihird
movement, a man in the far sic:
f the bleachers struggled with a
2igarette lighter that made a noise
like a Hallowe'en rachet. When it
finally cast its golden glare, there
was an audible "ahh" from the audi-
Governor Van Wagoner spoke
during the intermission and then
left. Apparently he'd had enough
culcher for one night. The Gover-
nor never failed to get a laugh
frcm the audience when he tried
to pronounce Stokowski. (The first
time it was Stow-kow-skiee and the
second time Stuff-kowff-skieff).
I expected to see livestock parade
back and forth across the podium
while they were playing the Love Mu-
sic from "Tristan and Isolde."
Leopold wasn't bashful about giving
encores, - he just gave 'em. He never
announced the name of a selection.
He'd just say "We will now play;
scme music from Bach," or "You will'
ncw hear some music from Tschai-
kowsky." But the audience clapped
and yelled and shouted for "Beat Me
Daddy" and Stoky was adamant.
His kids would only play longhair'
The concert. wasn't much of a
success. The orchestra was really
swell -- one of America's greats -
but the B of C couldn't have taken
in much, the two-bit programs
didn't exactly go like hot-cakes, and
the trolley-trade were the only ones
who enjoyed themselves.
If they had thrown open the doors
at a 25 or 55 cents general admission
they'd have made a lot more dough,
they'd have had a larger audience for
the orchestra and the Coliseum would
have been considerably warmer.
UnfortunaiLely, members of the'
Detroit Jr. B of C will never learn
that culture doesn't necessarily sit
in the three buck seats and that
you don't have to live in a 12-room
house with a $550 radio-phono -
graph to enjoy good music.
Initiaion Announced
Theta Phi Alpha announces the
initiation of Gloria Nelthorpe, '44,

Care Of Skin
Is Necessary
In Sunbathing
If you have ideas of combining
study with the process of acquiring
a golden tan while sunbathing on
Stockwell's secluded porch then haere's
a bit of advice.
Maybe you think you won't burn
and maybe you have passed endur-
ance tests for the number of hours in
the sun, but there is always a first
time. Sunburn can be just as seri-
ous as any other burn, so care should
be taken of your skin.
You've had the same advice pound-
ed into you for years: "acquire your
tan slowly by exposing yourself for
about 15 minutes the first time and
gradually lengthening the period."
The advice is still good. A tan can
be acquired sensibly but it doesn't
mean baking your skin to a parched
and peeling state the first time you
are out.
There are numerous preparations
on the market which rely on different
principles for their claims as prevent-
atives. The greasy type keeps your
skin from drying out while some. lo-'
tions have active ingredients which
protect the skin from the burning
rays of the sun.
Just as important as the condition
of your skin is the necessity for keep-
ing your hair from drying to a crisp.

Softball schedule: Alpha Omi-
cron Pi, winner of the "B" tourna-
ment, challenges Gamma Phi Beta,

Omicron Pi wins, they will chal-
lenge Mosher, the winner of the
"A" tournament, otherwise the fin-
al results will be Mosher, winner
and Gamma Phi Beta, runnerup.
Tennis: Club meets 4:15 p.m.
tomorrow. All entrants in wo-
men's singles and mixed doubles
tournaments must play off their
matches this week.

Alumni Association will hold a ban-
quet honoring Mayor Edward Jef-
feries, a member of the fraternity, at

day, June 3.

Krause, corporation counsel for De-
troit, and Mr. Charles Oakman, secre-
