Dancing, Cards
To Be Offered
Affair Is Open To Everyone;
Special Invitations Extended
To Seven University Groups
Mid-week gloom will be lifted once
a week by that modern Atlas, the
Michigan Union; chief weapon will
be ith Union Coke Bar, open for the
first time this season from 4:30 p.m.
to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Thrown open to the entire cam-I
pus, the Coke Bar offers entertain-
ment that is practically non-existent
during the working week, Dick
Strain, '42, co-chairman of the social
committee of the Union, guarantees.
Guests May Dance
There will be free cokes, and other
refreshments, and the small ball-
room of the Union, on the second
floor will be opened for dancing,
with the latest in both swing and
sweet music furnished by recordings.
On the terrace, which opens off the
ballroom, there will be tables set up
for bridge, for those students who
are too exhausted after the initial
plunge into the week's work to dance.
This week there are seven spe-
cially invited groups, Delta Gamma,
Alpha Phi, Stockwell, Sigma Phi Ep-
silon, Theta Chi, Michigan House and
Tyler House. Each week there will,
be different groups to whom special
invitations will be extended.
To Be Held Tuesdays
The Coke Bar will be continued
each Tuesday for the rest of the year,
Strain announced. Admission will
be 10 cents for each man; women
are to be admitted free. Anyone
may come, either in couples or alone.
Agnes Crow, '42, will be hostess at
this week's Coke Bar.
Last year the Tuesday afternoon
affairs began as Union Coffee House.
There were dancing and refresh-
ments, and the following became so
large that they were made a per-
manent feature of the Union's week-
ly program.
Four Teams Score
High In Inter-House
Volleyball Tourney
Four women's residence volleyball
teams emerged victorious from last
week's round of games while two
other groups climbed higher up the
ladder to championship with the aid
of defaults.
Alpha Delta Pi drew a 10 point
victory out of Delta Gamma Monday,
32-22, while Alpha Epsilon Phi de-
faulted to Collegiate Sorosis. Alpha
Omicron Pi set the pace for Tues-
day's games by trouncing Phi Sigma
Sigma, 3 1-19 (and Zone VI presented
a default to Mosher. Alpha Chi Ome-
ga fought a close battle with Jordan,
winning by the small margin of three
points, 40-37. Kappa Alpha Theta
eked out a two point lead over Chi
Omega to take the game, 26-24.
Eligibility Cards Due
Patricia Walpole, '41, president of
Assembly, reminds all independent

Lovers of the music of such famous;
composers as George Gershwin, Irv-
ing Berlin, or Jerome Kern had bet-
ter start laying in a collection of their
favcrite records, for after January
first, there's a strong possibility that
the music of these composers may be
banned from the air.
More than that, your favorite
-rchestras may also do a disappear-
ance act from the ether waves.
Not that they've offended the Will
Hayes office-or its equivalent in7
radio. The whole trouble grows out
of a fight-to-the-finish dispute be-
tween the American Society of Com-
posers, Authors and Publishers
(ASCAP) and the newly-formed
Broadcast Music Incorporated (BMI).
And if BMI wins, "Smoke Gets In
Your Eyes," "Rhapsody In Blue," and
"Blue Skies" will be mere memories-
at least as far as radio is concerned.
Monopoly Price Raised
For years, ASCAP has had a mo-
nopoly, of course, has been costing
the big broadcasting networks a
considerable sum of what it takes
to make the world go round. This
year, when ASCAP's contract ex-
pired, they decided to quote an even
higher price to the networks in the
new contract.
The networks objected. And to
show that they meant business, they
formed their own society for com-
posers, authors and musicians, and
called it Broadcast Music Incorpor-
ated. They've been accepting any
and all kinds of music-good or bad-
in order to build up a musical li-
brary that could compete with
ASCAP's, and the result, of course,
has been a deterioration in the qual-
ity of the popular music that has.
come over the, air waves recently.
BMI Tunes Enforced
So far, the networks have stated
that any program of popular music
must include one BMI tune, and

possibly more, depending on the
length of the program and other
technical factors. But after Jan-
uary first, unless the dispute is set-
tled before then, BMI tunes only will
be played.r
Most musicians, however, are in
sympathy with ASCAP's program
and intend to put up an argument
ha may result in rather drasticl
decisions. Last Tuesday, orchestra
leader Abe Lyman called a meeting
of all band leaders for the purpose
of pledging them to play no BMI
tunes. If this goes through, we may
see not only the loss of some of the
finest of the modern music to vast
radio audiences, but also a distinct
change in the type of radio pro-
grams bein# offered-unless BMI
capitulates. And we hope they do.
If you object to BMI's business
procedures, you'd better protest now.
Next month it will be too late.
