Revelli Named
Of Band Group
New Countrywide System
Of Cooperation Planned
For College Directors
Inaugurating a system of coopera-
tion between university and college
band directors all over the country,
something never done before, Prof.
William D. Revelli, conductor of the
University Bands, is now serving as
chairman of the national committee
for a meeting to be held Dec. 22 and
23 in Chicago.
Emphasizing the importance of
the convention, which will be held in
conjunction with a Music Educators'
National Conference, Professor Re-
velli predicted that the results would
be of great value to college musical
"Among other things," he stated,
"it will probably mean a greater de-
gree of cooperation between bands
meeting at football games, making a
much easier job for both the home
and visiting band."
Already cards have been received
from conductors all over the coun-
try, indicating their intense interest
in the project and their intentions
of attending the meeting.
High school music organizations
have long profited by meeting to dis-
cuss mutual problems, Professor Rev-
elli pointed out, and there is no rea-
son Why universitymmusic groups
should not do the same.

In Summary
Charles S. Abbott, '97, the man who
is suing the State of Michigan for
$13,000,000 because he claims to be
the inventor of a progressive metal
stamping proces for license plates.
is going to have a very tough time
collecting his money, state officialsl
pointed out.
Among several rcasuns that will
probably hinder Abbott's collection
of the amount allegedly due, is
first the problem of getting the
state legislature to earmark the
$13,000,000 should the circuit court
find for Abbott in the suit.
There is also the pro(em of whet-l
er anyone ever had tle rYht to bind
the state in such a deal as Abbott
claims was made. No one in Lans-Ing
could be found who was willing to,
bet that inventor Abbott would be
the possessor of $13,000,000 in the
near future.

When millions of dollars worth o:
bomber plant come to stay in a smal
community the size of Ypsilanti
things happen. The local government
takes turns being happy and sad.
And on the Michigan campus, when
students and faculty get together
more things happen. Bring the two to-
gether-Ypsi's worries and Ann Ar-
bor's scholars-and you will find the
Metropolitan Community Seminar
busily at work, having made their
topic for this year, "The Effect of the
Willow Run Bomber Plant on the
City of Ypsilanti."
Composed of faculty members rep-
resenting the social science studies
on the campus and student members
all of them graduates, the seminar
encourages the study of a specific
social problem with all sides repre-
sented and considered.
The rapid growth of a small city
into an urban community, the pain-
ful change that that Ypsilanti is nowc
experiencing, presents a perfect
source for laboratory study in all the
social sciences.
Problems Arise
There are problems of housing,
sanitation, police control and city
planning-enough tough problems for
an Ec. final-and the University's
seminar attacks them all. Special
emphasis is put on the fact that all
of the respective fields are related,
and that by cooperation among them,
they can more nearly approach a per-
fect solution to such complex com-
munity problems.
Each field of Ypsilanti's difficul-
ties is studied by a seminar repre-
sentative, who then presents his par-
ticular problem to the group. Solu-
tions are recommended which should
best fit into the solutions of the other
particular problems, an attempt be-
ing made to work out a cooperative
plan of action.
Besides the chance presented for
combined action on the part of the
graduates, the faculty feels that this
seminar allows them to work together
on a mutual project and tear down
some of the walls that have been
