Davey Nelson Enrolls As Naval Flier

Another Wolverine gridder has answered Uncle Sam's call for more
aviators. Davey Nelson, who understudied Tom Harmon in 1940 and
who alternated with Tom Kuzma last season, is shown being sworn in
recently at the Naval Aviation Base, Grosse Ile, Mich., by Lieut. Ray
W. Brown.
Women To Discuss War Aims

Swimmer Kivi
Writing Ability,
Freshman Louis Kivi, '44, had
never rated his writings on a par
with his swimming, until the day he
received a letter saying "You have
just won a Hopwood prize."
Kivi, who had submitted two 10-
page essays, a character sketch en-
titled "Carl," written between swims
at the Fort Lauderdale meet, and
"Social Life of Pinckney, Michigan,"
was thrilled but puzzled. How had
he placed? First? Second? Third?
While he sat in suspense in the
Hopwood Room, a sealed envelope
went to Ruth A. Sness with the an-
nouncement that it was third prize,
Kivi's heart leaped.
"When they handed out the sec-
ond prize to Don Folkman, it was
the happiest moment in my life,"
says Kivi, looking back.
Prize-winner Kivi, now working on
a short story for the spring Hopwood
competition, is in a position to offer
a few tips to freshmen submitting
manuscripts in the Jan. 27 contest.
Kivi suggests, first, that the would-
be winners select a subject for his
manuscript with which he is com-
pletely familiar. Second, he should
follow directions explicitly, and go
over and over his script, revising and
polishing. And last, author Kivi con-
cludes, it is far wiser to submit en-
tries in at least two of the three di-
visions, which increases the chances
for winning.
Scrutiny of the list of freshman
Hopwood winners bears out Kivi's
statement. In 1932, the first fresh-
man contest, Theodore Kane Cohen
won first in prose-narrative and sec-
ond in essay, while the following year
Dorothy Gies placed second in poetry
and third in prose-narrative. Rank-
ing first in essay in the 1937 compe-
tition was H. Gordon Green, who was
also awarded third in poetry.
In 1939 John Ragsdale took top
honors in essay division and supple-
mented this with second place in
poetry. It was 1940's versatile Mar-
garet Avery, though, who clearly
cinched Kivi's argument. Her essay
and her prose-narrative contribu-
tions both earned first prize money
for her.


Continuing their usual policy of
playing unusual numbers, Thor John-
son and the University Symphony
Orchestra will be heard in the sec-
ond concert of the season, at 4:15
p.m. Tuesday, in Hill Auditorium.
The program, which will feature
the Symphony No. 1 in D major of
Gustav Mahler and the Serenata
Notturna of Wolfgang Amadeus Mo-
zart. also features for the first time
this season members of the orchestra
in solo parts. First violinist Italo
Frajola, violinist Thomas Wheatley,

violist Edward Ormond and String
Bass player Clyde Thompson, all will
be heard in solo parts in the Mozart
The Mahler symphony is scored
for an exceptionally large orchestra,
using as many as seven French horns.
Of this Mr. Johnson has said. "We
are more fortunate than the average
symphony orchestra, in that we can
play music that is scored for unusual
numbers of instruments. The aver-
age orchestra is handicapped many
times because they are not able to
afford so many performers."
