Tryouts For Opera Parts
To Be Held Saturday;
Faculty Men To Judge
Plans for a yforthcoming opera to
be given by Play Production inrcon-
junction with the School of Music
were announced yesterday by Valen-
tine B. Windt, Director of Play Pro-
The musical will be of a calibre sim-
ilar to that of "The Bartered Bride"
and Mozart's "Il Seraglio" which have
been given here previously, and will
offer unusual opportunities for stu-
dents with fine singing voices who are
not members of play-acting classes.
Students wishing to try out for
parts in the opera are requested to go
tp the School of Music at 2 p.m. Sat-
urday, where Thor Johnson, con-
ductor of the University Symphony
Orchestra, Mr. Windt and faculty
members in the music school will
judge their talents.
In addition, the tryouts must come
prepared to sing for about two min-
utes, bringing with them either music
or an accompanist.
Play Production gives about two
musicals a year, usually one during
the regular school year and one dur-
ing the summer session, so this is the
only chance for students with vocal
abilities to take part ip such a pub-
The title of the opera has not yet
been announced, but it will not be
a Gilbert and Sullivan production
for all of those operas have already
been presented by Play Production in
the past. The Michigan Repertory
Players offered Gilbert and Sullivan's
"The Gondoliers" during the summer
session this year as part of their an-
nual musical program.

Will Precede Courses
To Correct Handicaps
Notices for personal interviews will
be sent by the Speech Clinic to all'
students who displayed some speech
defect during their health examina-
tions at registration.
The first examination, according
to Prof. H. Harlan Bloomer, head of
the Clinic, will be merely a "screen
test," and a more complete examina-
tion will be given in the near future.
Although the Clinic's facilities are
limited, Professor Blomer urged stu-
dents yesterday to take advantage of
the corrective courses immediately.
"Speech defects that you possess now
will become more and more of a
handicap as you continue your col-
lege work," he declared.
The speech examination during
registration was given to 2,230 fresh-
men and transfer students, and re-
vealed that 250 members of this
group had defective speech. Of this
number 160 were men and 90 were
A hearing test was also given in'
the health examination. Of the 1,670
men and 561 women tested, 100 men
and 47 women showed a sizeable
hearing loss. These students will be
notified by Health Service early in
the semester, so that appointments
may be made for individual audi-

First Of Series Of Eight
Will Begin Tomorrow
'The New Books and Plays,' a lec-
ture course \sponsored by the Univer-
sity Extension Service, will be opened
at 10 a.m. tomorrow atthe Michigan
League by Olive Deane Hormel who
will conduct the series.
Opening the course which will con-
sist of eight lectures will be 'Pros
and Cons With the Pamphleteers,' a
lecture in which Miss Hormel will
discuss the recent revival of the pam-
phlet as a method of arguing the
great issues of the day.
Preferring to remain anonymous
because "if they ever found out we
were hiring, we'd be mobbed by mil-
lions of women," the plant has been
employing girl replacements through-
out the summer.
A tour of the plant proved that
the domesticated female is fully cap-
able of skilled labor. A carefully made
up blonde was operating a delicate
hand screw machine and overalled
feminine figures were adjusting tur-
ret lathes or guiding drill presses.
Outside of the machine shop along
the assembly line, five more girls were
working in a previously stag occu-
Although defense plants along the
East and West Coast have been hir-
ing women for such jobs as riveting,
spot welding, rivet bucking, dimpling,
and filing, this is one of the few
factories in the Detroit area to take
such a step. Change-over layoffs in
other plants have accounted for any
losses from the draft.
Throughout the entire country wo-
men have been breaking headlines
by substituting for men in defens-
and non-defense work. A Federal
Security Agency report tells of air-
craft assemblers in San Diego, sheet
metal workers in Maryland, and cab
drivers in Milwaukee-all women.
As far as University coeds are con-
cerned, there seems to be little de-
mand for educated truck drivers as
yet. But, according to Dean of Wo-
men Alice Lloyd, several Mich;igan
women have already obtained jobs
in Washington defense agencies.
Here Is Today's News
Washtenaw County's Board of
Supervisors ended its afternoon ses-
sion Monday amid charges and coun-
ter-charges on the alleged miscon-
duct of Clark Ferguson, chairman of
the county road commission.
Ferguson is accused of insulting, by
profane language, a group of Dexter
citizens who came to see him about a
new road to Chelsea. Dignity was
forgotten as members of the Board
refused to believe Ferguson's explan-
ation of the meeting, and claimed
that he was supposed to be a "servant
of the people."

Will Discuss Plans
:A t Union Tomorrow
Activities for the coming semester
will be decided upon by the Student
Defenders of Democracy in their or-
ganizational meeting, at 8 p.m. to-
morrow, in the Michigan Union.
The SDD, known last year as the
American Student Defense League, is
planning to carry on its program of
organizing student opinion to back
a policy of all aid to Britain and to
the opponents of Hitler.
Among the topics which will be
taken up at this first meeting are the
election of officers, plans for bring-
ing various speakers to the campus,
and the proposed convention of all
student organizations of parallel pur-
pose which may be held in Ann Ar-
bor during Christmas vacation. The
purpose of this convention will be
to unite all these groups into a single
unified organization, in order to make
more effective the work of the indi-
vidual groups, and to do away with
t~he waste, of duplicating activities
satisfy all concerned, especially the
flight contractor, that their ability
to speak English is sufficient to in-
sure safety in taking the course.
The C.P.T. emphasizes that train-
ees do not have to sign a pledge for
training in the U.S. Army or Navy.
With the exception of the 12 dollar
physical examination fee, Pan-Ameri-
can trainees will pay the same insur-
ance and course fees required of other
Elementary Course C.P.T. trainees.
The C.A.A. prefers to have students
who evidence a sincere desire to make
aviation their life work in their re-
spective coutries. Those wishing to
apply should turn in their names at
the office of the Aeronautical En-
ROTC Units To March
In Two Formal Drills
Emblematic of the increased tempo
of military training at the Univer-
sity will be the two formal parades to
be held by the ROTC Oct. 31 and
Nov. 7 on Paliper Field.
Senior and sophomore members of
the Corps will be organized into a
rifle battalion for the retreat cere-
monies at 5:15 p.m. and the 28 piece
ROTC Drum and Bugle Corps will
play for the occasions.
In former years parades have been
held only in the spring, but the in-
tensification of instruction has ex-
tended into the drill activities. In
addition to the two parades, the coop-
eration of the women's Physical Ed-
ucation Department has been se-
cured to enable the military depart-
ment to use Palmer Field for the
physical drill which will form another
new feature of drill this year.

Six of the eight talks will' discuss
important new books of various kinds,
while the other two will report on
current Broadway productions. Spe-
cial arrangements with publishers
and producers will enable Miss Hor-
mel to review both books and plays

pearance before the public.
Among Miss Hormel's subjects are
'New Light on 'the Dark Continent';
'The Challenge of the Orient'; 'Books
To Share'; 'The Holiday Theatre';
'Understanding Our Good Neighbors';

A table will be placed at the
center of the diagonal tomorrow and
Friday to introduce the campus-at-
large to the "Advocate."
A Ralph Neafus Brigade has been,

cate" solicitors. The brigade was
founded in memory of Neafus, a for-
mer Michigan student and one of the
founders of the campus ASU, who
lost his life fighting for Spanish
Loyalists in 1937.
Bert Whitt, national executive sec-
retary of the ASU will be the main
speaker at a general meeting open
to all which will be held Thursday,

ment on the college campus.
