Whitfield Connor, Student Here,
Is Already Veteran Radio Actor,

Although he has yet to receive his
master's degree in speech, Whitfield
Connor, Grad., has a list of radio
and theatre performances to his
credit -that would do credit to a vet-
eran actor.
Connor's first chance in radio
came while he was an undergraduate
at Wayne University, when James
Jewell, the originator of the Lone
Ranger program, heard ;a record of
his voice and called him. Since that
time he has played both character
and straight parts on WWJ sustain-
ing programs, as well as on the Lone
Ranger and Green Hornet series.
"The studio keeps a number of
actors on call," Connor explained,
"and when the director reads the
script, he asks for as many as he'll
need for that particular program."
For the past year Connor has ap-
peared regularly on the Hermit's
Cave, on Sunday nights, as well as
playing in WJR Dedicates, News
Comes to Life, and announcing Fire-
light Fantasies. All these are broad-
cast over WJR.
Also while at Wayne, Connor won
six collegiate speech contests, in-
cluding the 1940 National PUratorical

Contest and all state contests in
interpretation , and oratory during
"Summers I work in play produc-
tions in the Cain Park Civic Theatre,
in Cleveland," Connor revealed.
Among the 50 parts he has played
there wire Trotter in "Journey's
End," Essex in "Elizabeth the
Queen," Bothwell in "Mary of Scot-
land," and the title role in "Liliom."
The widespread appeal of the Her-
mit's Cave program was illustrated
when Connor revealed that after an-
nouncements on two broadcasts that
listeners could obtain booklets by
writing in, the station received 40,000
replies, from 25 states. The stories
are carried by 14 stations other than
"Even the cast was surprised,"
Connor added.
Contrary to many prevalent ideas,
Connor described Klock Ryder, the
man who plays the Hermit, as being
without a long white beard and said
also that the script is written by a
Michigan graduate, Geraldine Elli-
ott, in collaboration with Eric How-
"Listeners often request rebroad-
casts of some of the stories, and in
response to over 2,000 request, six
months ago we repeated 'The
Shrunken Head', most famous of all
the Hermit's stories."
Born in Ireland, Connor came to
this country when he was six years
old. He attended Ferndale High
School, near Detroit, before entering
"I first became interested in radio
and theatre work about six years
ago, and hope to continue in one of
these fields after I finish my school
work." In addition to his course
here, Connor is teaching Radio 151.

Rushing over
Life Is Back
To Normalcy
University life resumed a more
nearly normal course last night for
several thousand students-the big
ordeal was over, and freshman and
upperclassman alike breathed a sigh
of relief.
Rushing, that annual chore of fra-
ternity members and the hectic, once-
in-lifetime experience of would-be


Prof. Slosson


Situation In Europe, U.S.
And Far East Scheduled
For Talks This Year
The constantly changing current
European situation, the intricate pro-
blems of the Far East and the poli-

tio-economic questions

of the United

members, ended at 8:30 p.m. and a,
"silent period" began, following rules
laid down by the Interfraternity
Council, governing body of the 41
general fraternities at the University.1
Rushees were left with mixed im-
pressions. Fraternity men were won
out by the ordeal.
One rushee said that he was "glad
it's all over, but it sure was fun."
Another commented that he "didn't
enjoy it much-too much glad-hand-
ing and smooth talking."
Fraternity men, on the other hand,
were almost unanimous in their re-
lief. "It's one big lot of work," one
"Greek" explained. "It's especially;
tough trying to get acquainted with
every member of a large group in a
rush period that lasts less than two
weeks. Tomorrow I'm going to be
able to attend some of my classes'
with all assignments completed-for
the first time."
Regardless of the difficulties im-
posed on rusher and rushee, the sys-
tem of "regulated rushing" now in
effect at the University is the most
satisfactory plan feasible for such a
large group of fraternities, according,
to Council President Blaz Lucas, '41.
The period of silence between fra-
ternities and rushees is due to last
until the time of the pledging ban-
quets Monday evening. Any breach-
es of the silent period, Lucas warned,
will be considered violations of rush-
ing regulations and may result in de-1
nial of pledging privileges to fra-1
ternities and rushees alike.I

States will all be discussed by Prof.
Preston Slosson of the history de-
partment in a series of six lectures
during the coming school year.
Presented at 4:15 p.m. in the Rack-
ham Lecture Hall, the talks will be
sponsored by the American Asso-
ciation of University Women. The
first address will be presented on
Oct. 24, while others will be given
Nov. 3. Dec. 9, Jan. 23, Feb. 19 and
March 12. 'Tickets are available at

Professor Slosson, a member of the
University faculty since 1921, is par-
ticularly qualified to speak on the
affairs of the world today. In 1932-
33 and again in 1938-39 he was visit-
ing professor to several British Uni-
versities under the Carnegie Endow-
ment fund and most of his summers
and other vacations have been spent
on the Continent investigating Euro-
pean conditions. He returned to
America last year only a month be-
fore the outbreak of hostilities.
This series of lectures is being
presented to raise funds for fellow-
ships for women at the OCniversity.
Last June the A.A.U.M. was able to
present two of these awards.

It doesn't take a Gallup poll to show up the popular-
ity of the Duke of Manhattan. For this is the white
broadcloth that never develops a yellow streak, and
hangs on to its shape, size and sparkle right through
to the finals. Spenders buy it for straight good looks;
others find its price so much better for the budget ...
