Moore Speaks
On Musicians'
Place In Army
Dean Tells Music Students
That Moraki Value Is
Not To Be Overlooked,
What is the musician's place .in
Uncle Sam's army?
Prof. Earl Moore, Dean of the
music school here, and recently re-
turned from a trip to the nation's
capital, counseled an assembly' of
male students yesterday in the Music
School auditorium.
The musician has a very definte,
place in the national scheme, was
Professor Moore's opinion, and his
morale value and entertainment
vdlue must not be overlooked. If a
student becomes part of the army in
the near future, he should notify
army authorities at once of his musi-
cal 9,bilities. Regimental bands are a
necessary part of army life, and there
is no reason for a musician to be
shy about his skill.
Professor Moore expressed hope
that army machinery would be
geared soon so that musicians could
actively make the most of their skill
in military life.
Answering one student's question
as to whether it was advisable to en-
list or to wait for Selective Service
action, Professor Moore expressed
preference for the Selective bervice.
Adding, of course, that each student
presents an individual case, he re-
marked that there was more chance
of army officials finding out a man's
capabilities under the Selective Serv-
ice method.
Professor Moore also mentioned
the possibility of shortened vacations
and intensive courses for music stu-
dents, but said that this would de2
pend on how the majority of stu-
dents' courses were planned.
Finally passing out student ques-
tionnaires, he urged strong response
to these questionnaires as a means
towards aiding University officials
in future action.

teer workers. Families with both
parents engaged in defense work have

staffs which willrbe filledhby quali-
fied ODVO registrants. This will be
done after the CDVO has completed
building its "inventory" of available
The third day of registration found
additional applicants with hobbies
or pastimes useful in war work. Out-

Play Production's Stage Crew
Must Be 'Jack Of All Trades'

Students in stagecraft will find
few dull moments while working on
"George Washington Slept Here."
These behind-the-scenes workers
must not only see to the lighting of
the show and provide the props; they
must also combine the duties -of jan-
itor, carpenter, housekeeper and gen-
eral repairman during the course of
the presentation.
The play, which has been revived
from the summer bill of the Michi-
gan Repertory Players, is the third
presentation in the current season
by Play Production of the Depart-
ment of Speech. It replaces the for-
merly-scheduled "Flight to the West"
and will be presented at 8:30 p.m.
Wednesday through Saturday at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The strenuous duties of the stage
crew are caused by the destructive
tendencies of the Fullers, who buy
and redecorate a barn-like structure
in Pennsylvania, only to tear it
vengefully to pieces when they can-
not make the payments on the place.
Since only one set-the interior of
the house-is ~ used in the show,
washable wallpaper has to be used so
the crew can clean it for the next
show after theiFullers have muti-
lated it. In addition, the dispossessed
owners break the bannisters off the
staircase, drag plows into the living
room, and stuff up 'the chimney
which they had bad remodeled.
Mother Nature aiso has a finger in
the mince pie that is made out of

the crew. A freak thunder and light-
ning storm causes the windows to
break, the roof to leak and plaster
to fall off the ceiling.
Producing the effect of thunder
with a metal thuhdersheet is not
particularly different, but you have
to know just what strings to pull to
make the plaster and rains come,
not to mention putting a broken
window back in shape again.
The Kaufman-Hart comedy had a
great deal of success in New York
