Former Editor
Will Give Talk

Co-op To Hold
Annual Mixer,
Guest Evening
The world's largest student co-
operative will open wide its doors to
all interested students, faculty mem-
bers and townspeople tomorrow at
The Michigan Wolverine's annual
gala open house will celebrate eight
years of service to the campus and
the community when it welcomes in-
quisitive guests to examine its kit-
chen, bakery and newly enlarged and
redecorated basement.
For those who will not spend the
entire evening inspecting the facili-
ties of the cooperative, which now
has a membership of more than 775,
there will be free dancing, free re-
freshments and free orchestral en-
Philip Westbrook, '43L, chairman
of the social committee, estimated
that a crowd of 1,000 would attend
the open house tomorrow. Last year's
open house attracted 800. The pro-
gram will' last from 8 p.m. to 10:30
p.m. The walls and ceiling of the
cooperative are completely sound-
proof and a modern motif of decora-
tion prevails. A public address sys-
tem provides recorded music while
students dine.
Prof. Christian To Give
Second Organ Recital
Prof. Palmer Christian of the
School of Music will present the sec-
ond in a series of Wednesday after-
noon organ recitals at 4:15 p.m. to-
day in Hill Auditorium.
Among the selections which will
be heard are Three Chorale Preludes
by Bach, the Symphonic Chorale,
"Jesu, Meine Freude," by Karg-Elert,
and Vierne's "Clair de lune" and
Finale (Symphony 1.)
The music by Bach and Karg-Elert,
tritten in the 18th and 20th cen-
turies respectively, were chosen by
Professor Christian as examples of
the influence of Lutheran chorales
on organ literature. The other selec-
tions are in direct contrast, the for-
mer being an impressionistic piece
and the latter resembling a march.

ology department will open the sem-
inar in social service sponsored by

be available for individual confer-
ences from 1 to 6 p.m.
Work open to students range from
clefical work at the Family Welfare
Bureau to the leadership of clubs of
underprivileged children. The work
usually requires three hours a week
although one may work on a volun-
teer basis.
