Final Discussion Will B Held
In League Grand Rapids Room;
Mortar Board Acts As Sponsors
The last in a series of discussions
concerning parliamentary law will
be held from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. tomor-
row, Dec. 12, in the Grand Rapids
Room of the League. This discussion
is sponsored by the Mortar Board and
will serve to test the knowledge of
parliamentary law which the women
have acquired through their dis-
At the first two meetings only a
brief survey of the subject was made
in the lectures, but a syllabus con-
taining an outline of \the important
points and reference lists was given
to each member. The object of the
course was to make available to all
participating the type of material
necessary in conducting meetings
both in and out of school.
The idea of having such a course
was first introduced at Denver Col-
lege where it proved to be very suc-
cessful. Jean Maxted, chairman of
the Mortarboard 'committee for the
lectures, explained that it is essen-
tial that women have some under-
standing of at least the rudiments of
the subject of parliamentary law,
because there are so many self-gov-
erning women's organizations on
campus and out of school.
Members of the committee assist-
ing Miss Maxted are Betty Lyman,
Florence Siniago, and Annabel Van

Will Osborne, who appeared on the stage of one of the local theatres this week, proved to be more than
enthusiastic about this year's produotion of the Union Opera. He is shown here going over some of the songs
of the show. In the usual order are Osborne, Gordon Hardy, '41SM, and Chan Pinney, '41E. Hardy collab-
orated with Charles Bowen, '41, on the music, and Pinney has the lead in the show.

"How about letting me write a
song for Union Opera?" asked Will
Osborne, intrigued by the idea of
"Take A Number," which he'd been
discussing with Chan Pinney and
It was a bit rough on the leading
man and the song-writer, but they
had to tell Osborne that the Opera
was slated to open today. "A bit late,
I guess," Osborne admitted. "Well,
next year then?" Hardy and Pinney
may be gone next year, but the Opera
promises to add a brilliant big-time
ring to its former
mances, if Osborne
say about it.

Again many bandleaders take a
personal interest in ASCAP because
their own compositions are being
handled by this agency, and a close-
out by Broadcast Music Incorporated
would mean that these songs would
disappear from the air.
The whole issue began when the
networks refused to renew their con-
tracts for the right to play ASCAP
songs over the air, and started their
own publishing agency, BMI. When
the contracts run out Jan. 1, unless
some sort of deal is made in a hurry,
Jerome Kern, George Gershwin and
many well-liked composers will be
shut off the air-lanes completely.
BMI Favors Young Composers
Until then, only commercial pro-
grams can feature the ASCAP songs,
and those in limited numbers. How-'
ever, Osborne pointed out that one
thing in favor of BMI is their atti-
tude toward young composers and
beginners trying to break into the
field of music writing.
Osborne, who has played here on
one former occasion, the Caduceus
Ball in 1939, played an engagement
at a local theatre Sunday and Mon-
day. Those who saw him probably
noticed that this business of playing
in a band appeared less like work
than any band we've seen in a long
When asked whether the clowning
was ad lib, Osborne said that it all be-
gan that way, and any show might
show minor innovations; good ideas
were kept for futureeperformances.

Guild, campus organization of Meth-

December 13, in the Russian Tearoom

Guild members will gather in the
lobby of the League at 6:15 p.m. and
go through the cafeteria together,
choosing any meal that appeals to
them, or just dessert if they have

Osborne Prefers ASCAP To BMI
All of which lead to a discussion
of ASCAP and ,BMI. Osborne said
that he personally hoped that the
ASCAP and its songs would come
out on top in the scuffle with BMI.
There are three reasons for his feel-
ing. Besides having better songs to
offer, the American Society of Com-
posers, Authors and Publishers has
