Prof. Christian
To Give First
Organ Recital
Selections From Elgar,
Liszt To Be Featured
In Today's Program
Among the selections scheduled to
be heard in Prof. Palmer Christian's
first organ recital of the year at 4:15
1:m. today in Hill Auidtorium are
Elgar's "Sonata in G" and "Fantasia
and Fugue on B A C H" by Liszt.
The former composition is signi-
cant as the only important contri-
bution of Sir Edward Elgar to the
organ. His oratorios are his real
basis of fame among English com-
posers and his Enigma Variations is
of great importance among various
types of orchestral literature.
In German musical nomenclature
the note "B" is our "B-flat" and "H"
is our "B" thus making the selection
"Fantasia and Fugue on B A C H" a
theme on these four musical notes.
The same theme was used by Bach,
himself, by Schumann, by Reger and
a number of other composers in addi-
tion to Liszt.
In addition to these selections Pro-
fessor Christian will play Liszt's "In-
troit," Samartini's "Allegro vivace,"
d'Andrieu's "Rondeau," Tartini's
"Air," Bach's "Tocatta and Fugue in
D minor" and "Ave Maria" by Liszt.
With the opening of the Organ
Recital Series today Professor Chris-
tian is continuing a tradition which
has lasted for more than 25 years
and which dates back to the time
that the University organ was kept in
Hill Auditorium.
It was Dr. Earl V. Moore, newly
appointed director of the School of
Music, who was the first to offer
these concerts regularly every Wed-
nesday after the construction of Hill
Auditorium in 1913.

Burial Service For Arnold
Held At Jewish Center
Word has been received of the
burial of Herman Arnold, Grad.,
Sunday from the Jewish Center in
Detroit following his sudden death
Thursday evening.
.A graduate student for the past
three years, Arnold came to the Uni-
versity from Halle, Germany in 1934.
He did his graduate work in the de-
partment of mathematics in which
he was a teaching assistant. His re-
quirements for a doctor's degree were
almost completed. Prof. Raleigh Nel-
son of the International Center and
Dr. William Brace of the University
Health Service acted as his sponsors
for his American citizenship which
he received a year ago. Arnold was
also known for his activity in the
International Center, Hillel Founda-
tion, and Friends' Society.

Absentee Ballot
Plan Explained
Voting Requirements Vary
In Different States
Periods for the acceptance of ab-
sentee ballot applications are now
open in nearly all states, and stu-
dents of voting age still have ample
time to receive information and ma-
terial before the November elections.
Registration, application for the
ballot and svoting the ballot are the
three general steps involved in ab-
sentee voting and each has different
requirements in the various commu-
nities and states in the nation.
Absentee voters must register in
the same manner as regular voters
except in the few states that provide
for registration by mail. Inexperi-
enced voters should inquire of their
city, town or county clerk as to the
requirements of the initial registra-
Application for the ballot is usu-
ally accomplished by filling out an
affidavit form which has been pro-
cured from the applicant's town, city
or county clerk. In Michigan the ap-
plication must be made to the city
or village clerk two to 30 days be-
fore the election. Other states accept
applications between the second and
fourth weeks preceding the election.
When the application has been ac-
cepted an official ballot will be sent.
Full instructions will accompany the
ballot. Usually it must be marked
before a notary and returned before
election day.
Further information concerning
absentee voting in general or par-
ticular requirements of the several
states may be obtained at the Union's
Absentee Ballot Service between 3
and 5 p.m. any day.

Michigan's First Drum Major
Returns WithBig-Time Band

George Olsen. '14L. Michigan's1
first Alrum major and originator of
the baton-over-the-goal-posts tradi-.
tion, visited Ann Arbor this week-end
at the head of his own big-time
swing orchestra.
Well-known throughout the coun-
try for his distinctive styling. Olsen
made his start here when he organ-
ized one of the first jazz bands this
campus sported. The group played
various engagements for fraternity
dances. His first chance for profes-
sional success came when Eddie Can-
tor 'discovered' him, and Olsen was
hired to play for several Ziegfield
Interviewed after his appearance
Monday at the Michigan Theatre,
Olsen expressed regret at not having
the time to reacquaint himself with
his alma mater. He left with his
band Monday night for Houston,
Texas, where they are engaged for
the winter..
Three of his singing entertainers
created as much of a stir here as did
the returning alumnus. The girls,
who have been with Olsen's orches-
tra for periods ranging from three
months to one and a half years, hail
from Mississippi, Louisiana and In-,
diana respectively.
All three are exceptionally pretty,
even without their stage make-up,
and contrary to the saying "beauti-
ful but-", had a good many opinions
as they see it. Their foremost prob-
lem while "on the road" is coping

with admirers, among whom several
Michigan men may be numbered.
They were still laughing Monday
night at the device used by one fra-
ternity man who accosted them
backstage and without saying a word
handed them a printed card. It read
"I'd like to make a date with you. If
you mean yes, keep this, if not. just
hand it back." They still had the
card, but diplomatically remained
Due to the fact that they are con-
tinually in a hurry keeping their one-
night-stand schedule, the girls rarely
do go out, unless, as they put it, "a
friend of a friend, or something"
contacts them.
They had advice to offer to coeds
who are planning a vocalist's career.
"It's exciting work, of course," they
remarked, "but you have to have
stamina to take this sort of life."
Judith Wright, the Indiana song-
stress, formerly a student at Depauw
University, also advises college girls
to graduate before entering the en-
tertainment field. She left school
her junior year-and regrets it.

VOL. LI. No. 9
Publication in the Daily Official
Bulletin is constructive notice to all1
members of the University.
The Michigan Hospital Service has
given notice of a revision and liber-
alization of its contracts as follows,
which will shortly be embodied in
a rider that will be sent to each con-
tract holder for attaching to his con-
"The revised certificate provides
coverage for every type of case ad-
missible ot a hospital. This includes
hospitalization not only for those
cases ordinarily cared for in general
hospitals, but also for hospital care
of contagious diseases, pulmonary
tuberculosis, and nervous and mental
diseases. This means that every type
of case admitted to a hospital, with
the exception 'of maternity care,
which is available after the sub-
scriber has been enrolled for twelve
consecutive months, will be covered
"The new certificate will not only
provide this full coverage for a period
of twenty-one days as heretofore but
additional protection will be provided
for a period of ninety days at a dis-
count of 50 per cent from the regu-
lar hospital charges. The extension
in days applies to every enrolled sub-
scriber, making it possible for each
member of the family included in the
subscribers' contract to be hospital-
ized for as long as 111 days each
