Maestro Mitropoulos Terms
Local Audience Most Receptive

Chinese Prints
Are On Display


Woodblocks Shown

Examples of ancient art, over
three centuries old, are among the
exhibit of Chinese woodblock prints
and illustrated books, now being
shown in the first floor- display cases
of the main library. The colorful
collection was lent the, local institu-
tion through the courtesy of Laur-
ence Sickman, curator of Oriental
art at the William Rockhill Nelson
Gallery of Art, Kansas City, Mo.
This type of art work printing from
wooden blocks, was practiced in Chi-
na as early as the first and second
century, A. D., and the collection on
exhibition contains some of the best
color block prints ever produced in
The highly intricate works are
printed from wooden blocks, one
block being used for each color. The
pigment is carefully printed onto the
block by hand, and no two are alike.
Among the examples sent from
Kansas City for display are originals
from both of the two most valued
sets of block illustrated books, as
well as later examples of the art in
color and black and white, and are
taken from the permanent collection
of the Atkins Museum of Fine Arts
in Kansas City.
Pneumonia Cases
Increase Threefold
In Last Six Months
Most striking item on the Health
Service's monthly report is the three-
fold increase in the number of pneu-
monia cases treated in the last six
months as compared to the same
period the year before.
The figures for the July-December
period in 1941 reveals 60 cases while
the 1940 record shows only 19 cases
in the parallel period.
Np significant reason can be found
for this startling increase, but
through the use of the new sulfanili-
mide drug compounds the Health
Service reports that all cases recov-
ered fpr this last period.

Russian War
Relief Group
To Ask Funds
Soviet surgeons think they can do
it again! At Lake Khassan in 1938
they restored 80 percent to service,
and during the war with Finland 83
percent of the wounded were re-
turned to active duty. "We can do
it again," Prof. Nikolai Burdenko,
Chief Surgeon of the Red Army, de-l
clared, "If we can only obtain the1
necessary medical supplies."
The Ann Arbor student division of
the Russian War Relief Society is
doing all they can to see that this
surgeon lives up to his assertion.1
This committee is starting an all-l
out fund drive Saturday on the cam-
pus and throughout Ann Arbor.

wide campaign, a colorful Russian
bazaar and auction will be held Sat-
urday from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. and

Rapids Room of the Michigan
Many of the articles to be sold at
the bazaar will reflect the spirit of
Russian culture. Among these will
be well-known books by Russian au-,
thors, records by the Doi Cossacks'
Choir, and a selection of Russian ob-
jects of art. Modern-day articles
will also be on sale and will include
clothes, cosmetics and plastic jewel-
ry. The committee asks the students
to contribute more materials, so that

/NEW YORK,/ -(Special to The
Daily)-That maestro Dimitri Mi-
tropoulos makes a hit with Ann Ar-
bor audiences is a known fact-wit-
ness ,his immediate return engage-
ment after last year's debut-but
how does the student audience of the
University rate with him?
This question is answered by no
less an authority than the famous
conductor of the Minneapolis Sym-
phony Orchestra himself. Mitropou-
los, who will conduct in, Hill Audi-
torium Peb,.3/ expressed his strong
approval in a recent interview here.
At the first mention of Ann Arbor,
his somber face creased into a warm
Likes Ann Arbor
"In all the places that we toured
last. year, I never found an audience
which was so receptive, so bounding
with enthusiasm. I say it was a. dis-
tinct pleasure to play in Ann Arbor
because, truthfully, ;the audience at
Ann Arbor was the most advanced
that we encountered."
At the time of the interview, Mi-
tropoulos was at rehearsal with the
New York Philharmoiic-Symphony
Orchestra, with who he was appdar-
ing -as guest conductor. %
When asked for comment on thg
progr'am he will present in Ann Ar-
bor, Mitropoulos said that he was
pleased with the selection of Brahms'
Third Symphony in F major, the
principal work scheduled.
Succeeded Ormandy
Composer, conductor, pianist, Mi-
tropoulos has been conductor of the
Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra
since 1937, when he succeeded Eugene
Ormandy-no easy task. Maintain-
ing a great tradition, the organiza-
tion which he brings to Hill Audi-
torium for the eighth Choral Union
concert, is ranked as one of Ameri-
ca's outstanding symphony orches-
He is also known for his playing
of new and rarely heard pieces, in-
cluding much chamber music. One
of the most well known is his reading
of the Beethoven quartet in C-sharp
minor, Opus 132, which he has per-
formed, augmented for string'orches-
In reference to this quartet, Mi-
tropoulos declared, "I have not
changed it or ;transcribed it; I have
merely presented it for full strings
in the hope that I might popularize
it. In this way, more audiences can
get an opportunity to hear one of the
world's great pieces of music. Then,
when they are acquainted with it,

they can go back to the original four
instruments and derive the greater
After discussing music at some
length, the conductor turned once
again back to the subject of Ann
Arbor and the University. Once more
there were glowing terms.
"Yes," he repeated, "We all look
forward to our return to Ann Arbor
this year. A wonderful place." All
of which should make some patron-
izing alumnus puff up and say, "And
a wondarul conductor!",





Program For Student Purchase

The minute-man, symbol of Amer-
ica's birth in 1776, has reached for
his flintlock again but with his exact
aims and plans slightly confused in
the minds of those he is guarding.
Standing lookout duty in posters,
stamps, bonds and advertisenents,
he represents the American govern-
ment's defense savings plan, first in-
augurated as a postal savings pro-
kram in 1935.
University students, notorious for
limited budgets, are primarily con-
cerned with the program's Series E
Bond. Bonds in this issue, selling for
$18.75, mature in 10 years at $25.
Larger Series E bonds, up to $1,000
in value, increase at the same rate.
"Painless payment" on these bonds
is offered through the postal savings
stamp system, which sells stamps in
denominations of $.10, $.25, $.50, $1
and $5. After buying a ten cent
stamp, you are given an album
mounting 50 of these stamps. The
album, exchangeable for $5 worth of
the larger sizes, is the first step in ac-
cumulating a bond.
On the purchase of a 50-cent
stamp you are given a 75-stamp al-
bum, worth $37.50 when filled and
