Quest To Open
For Michigan's
Singing Coed
. Registration For First Audition
To Be Today, Monday; Contest'
Sponsored By Hour Of Charm
Registration for the preliminary
auditions which are being held in the:
contest to discover a coed who can
sing will be at 3:30 p.m. today and
Monda:# in the offices of the School of
Music. To the Michigan coed who
'can tenderly warble such old favorites
as "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," the
Hour of Charm, a radio program feat-
uring an all-girl orchestra, is offer-
ing a $1,000 prize as well as a chance
for a career in radio.
The University of Michigan has
been selected as one of the fo colleges
throughout the country in which to
conduct a search for talent, as the
Sunday evening radio show is bunt-
ing for possible new vocalists. After
a seriesof audiions the 10 finalists
will appear on the Show, one singing
each week, and the three final win-
ners will each receive a $1,000 award..
Auditions To Be Held
Preliminary auditions, open to any
Michigan woman and not necessarily
a music student, will begin immedi-
ately so that the 10 women may be
selected to sing Oct. 15 at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre in the Univer-
sity contest. .
This local elimination, to be
judged by members of the music fac-
ulty and Vivien, now vocalist with the
all-girl orchestra, will narrow tie
selection down to ore singer, who
will represent Michigan by appear-
ing on the Hour of Charm show Sun-
day, Nov. 16.
$1,000 Is Pri
Contestants will be judged on the
basis of "voice quality, poise, per-
sonality, and general aptitude for a
successful radiol career."
To the Michigan winner will be
paid travelling expenses to and from
the origin of the broadcast as well as
a $100 award, Should she be chosen
after this broadcast for a return en-
gagement as one of the three fin-
alists, the $1,000 prize will be hers.
Each of the three women must agree
to appear if asked on a third broad-
cast with no compensation othr than
Scholarship Is Offered,
if a Michigan coed is the ultimate
winner-tht is, if she is selected to
appear this third time, the University
will be awared $4,000 in the form of
a four-year scholarqhip or fellowship
to be administered for the benefit of
any deserving students.
So if you tihink you have. a voice,
the kind that's good for more than
torch singing, then practice up on
such old stand-bys as "Home On the
Range," "Carry Me Back to Old Vir-
ginny" and "Only A Rose"; 'take a
chance and /exercise thqe vocal
chords for the judges'.

To Priorities



Last year, one of our more gullible
members df the Fourth Estate came
fcrth with a tidbit on the women's
page telling all about the all-brass,
wood-burning steam caliope that was
going to be installed in the tinion,'
The exact spot on which this fugi-'
tive from a circus was to stand was
even described-oh hum, the bliss of
ignorance. Then-after that spec-
tacular announcement-silence, com-
plete. and .unabridged. And now be-
cause some happy people just won't

it's out-"in an official communique
from the undergraduate offises of the
Michigan Union it is hereby stated
that due to the national defense pri-
orities on brass, material to construct
the caliope can not be obtained."
"This unfortunate news," the com-'
munique moans, "came even after ex-
tensive preliminary work had been
done' An experienced brass-polisher
was already hired to insure continual
brilliance to the caliope's all-brass
boiler and now we have to fire him."
Unable to go on, the official eom-

ization of Catholic students, is spon-
soring its second dance of the semes"-
ter from 8 p.m. to midnight today in

James Landers, '42, men's vice presi-
dent; Katherine.Norton, '42, women's
vice president; Sally Walsh, '44, sec-
retary, and James Keenan, '44, treas-

consult with the department at tnis
time. Those who are intending to
minor should get advice from the de-
partment during their sophomore,
year and those intending to major
should seek advice their freshman
year and enter the school their sophl-
omore year.
Students graduating in physical
education are qualified to teach both
elementary and secondary schools
in Michigan, and are prepared to
carry on work in community recrea-
tion as well. Those wishing further
advice should make appointments in

ities and an afternoon's frivolity are
welcome. Meetings will be held each
Eunday afternoon.
