Roth Quartet Director Renews
Old Acquaintances At Festival

i recounts: "Back in 1927 in Par-is, I
played the first piece of chamber
music that Roy Harris ever wrote;
and we have been fighting and work-
ing with each other ever since."
Here Harris interjected mildly,
r "Only during rehearsals of course."
"Oh, of course," continued Roth.
"One day we leave thinking that the
other fellow is the worst string quar-
tet and composer-next day we are
old friends again. All the time."
I Harris, whose "Four Preludes and
- Fugues" the Roth Quartet will play
- tomorrow, smiled wryly as Roth con-
"I did not know Roy was going to
be here; I send him a telegram in
New York for -him to come. Then I
find he is already here for something
else. But it's too late to get my
83 cents back by then!"
Spending as much as 80 per cent
of their concert time playing for stu-
dent audiences, the Roth Quartet
members are well able to judge Ann
Arbor audiences. Oliver Edel, cellist,
declared that students are more in-
terested and more responsive to
chamber music than the average city
The quartet has been on tour at
different universities since October;
at present they are on tour through
the mid-west and they will continue
until March, at which time they will
be back East.1
After the interview, Roth and
Harris left together to go out for the
evening. When last seen, they were
headed for either a movie or a well-
known local tavern.
NROTC Rifle Team

versity of Virginia in a recent postal
Paced by Mort Hunter, who fired

NROTC squad had no trouble in
beating Virginia. The team is cap-
tained by Art Thomson, '44E, and
coached by Lieut. K. S. Shook, U.S.N.
Previous victims to the marksman-
ship of the Navy's riflemen were
NROTC teams from Yale, Renssel-
aer, Marquette and South Carolina.

iedica Group
To Give Relief
The Medical Advisory Council for
Civilian Defense, headed by Dr. War-
ren E. Forsythe, director of Health
Service, held its first meeting at the
Service yesterday and made plans for
coordinating Washtenaw County
emergency medical relief services.
The recently formed medical coun-
cil is a branch of the Washtenaw
County Council of Defense and will
have overall authority in directing
disaster relief in the event of sabo-
tage or aerial bombing of defense
plants, or other war emergencies.
First move of the medical council
was to divide the more densely pop-
ulated parts of the county into smal-
ler areas with a member of the de-
fense council as local head. These
areas are centered around Ann Ar-
bor, Ypsilanti, Dexter, Saline, Chel-
sea, Milan and Manchester.
rTypioid Will Not.
Affect U.S. Army
The deadly typhus plague now dec-
imating the Nazi and Soviet armies
in the Russian campaign and re-
ported spreading to North Africa is
not likely to infect American Army
camps according to Dr. Warren E.
Forsythe, director of Health Service.
The typhus, highly fatal blood dis-
ease, is spread by lice biting soldiers
in the field who are living under rel-
atively unsanitary conditions, espec-
ially lacking changes of clothing.
Since the carier lice breed in con-
ditions of filth, it is unlikely that
civilian areas not in the war area
will be hit by the scourge.

A bill of four one-act plays, each
directed by a student in Valentine B.
Windt's advanced directing class, will
be presented at 7:30 p.m. Monday in
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Although the productions are un-
der the general supervision of Vir-
ginia Whitworth who is on the Play
Production staff, all the work-act-
ing, directing, costuming and scene-
building-is done by students.
Margaret Cotton, '42, will direct
pastoral scenes from "As You Like
It" by William Shakespeare; Joseph
Lynn, '42, will direct a comedy; Fay
Goldner, '42, will direct a play writ-
ten by herself entitled "As Darkness
Calls," and Theodore Balgooyen,
Grad., will direct his own "Black
Land, Bright Sky."
The last of the plays Balgooyen is
directing with certain techniques of
Russian directors he has studied, not-
ably Meierhold. According to Meier-
hold's theory, the characters in plays
are symbolic and it is his idea, one
which Thornton Wilder has followed,
that the audience should be included
in the play rather than watching it
from the outside.
Students in Robert Mellencamp's
Victory Campaign
To Cogllect F ooks
For Enlisted Men
A national goal of 10,000,000 books
has been set for the Victory Book
Campaign soon to be inaugurated in
Ann Arbor and on campus.
Primary purpose of the campaign
is to furnish reading material for

libraries are inadequate for the in-
flux of armed forces.
A secondary aim of the movementC
is to supplement the libraries in;
crowded industrial centers, and child-
ren's books, household books and text
books for this purpose are being
sought along with the novels, his-
tories and technical works suitable
for service men.
The local drive will begin the week
of Feb. 12, and collections will be
made in various spots around cam-
pus Thursday, Friday and Saturday
of that week. Students are urged to
go over their books now, so that they
will be prepared to donate at that
