Opportunity To Hear Classical
Records Is Provided By League

Deep chords of Beethoven, violins
singing higher and higher, crashing
crescendos of a piano concerto, these
and many other musical sounds re-
echo through the halls of the Michi-
gan League every day.
The site of this daily concert is the
second hall of the building, directly
in front of the ballroom. It is here
from 4 to 8 p.m. on weekdays and
fiom 1 to 3 p.m. and from 6 to 9
p.m. on Sundays and holidays that
students are invited to come and lis-
ten to the classical records which are
played continuously during these pe-
The students who attend these
concerts are not all of the music
school. Engineers, lit students, pre-
meds and profs can all be found
there, sitting in the chairs which are
opposite the record player or those
that are placed down the neighboring
Records Changed
The records are always changed by
two girls of the music school. Mary
Evans is the tall brunette who is
majoring in the piano and is at pres-
ent composing a theme and varia-
tions. The curly blond is Carol Camp-
bell who is studying voice. When it
domes to an argument as to what
composer is the most pleasing, you
Will always find Carol defending
Wagner and Mary praising the merits
of Brahms and Rachmaninoff.

Recipient Of Margaret Kraus
Ramsdell Fellowship To Make
Selection Of Place To Study
Seniors or graduate students who
expect to prepare for the ministry,
religious education or similar pur-
suits are eligible to apply for several
scholai'ships and fellowships award-
ed through ,the University.
Most attractive among these is the
Margaret Kraus Ramsdell Fellowship,
established in memory of a daughter
of Dean Edward H. Kraus of the lit-
erary college and Mrs. Kraus, which
allows the recipient to make his own
selection of a place to study.
Met Fatal Accident
After success as a student of his-
tory and as a teacher, Margaret
Kraus married Dr. Edward Ramsdell,
also- a University graduate. While
teaching at Dana Hall, Boston, she
met with a fatal accident. It was to
perpetuate one of her major inter-
ests that her husband and parents
established this fellowship.
ToAssist Graduates
According to the Regents' Pro-
ceedings, it is introduced as follows:
"The fellowship shall be used to
assist graduates of the University of
Michigan to pursue advanced studies
in this country or abroad in relig-
ious education or in preparation for
the Christian ministry."
Selection of fellows is based upon
the following qualifications: (a) in-
tegrity of moral character, (b) gen-
uineness of religious interest, (c) cap-
acity for 'superior scholarship, (d)
personal attractiveness and (e) qual-
ities making for effective leadership
in the church.
Students To Call
Students interested in this fellow-
ship are requested to call at the office
of the graduate school for applica-

to the League by the Carnegie Foun-
dation about five years ago. Con-
certs in all kinds of classical music,
symphonic, string and vocal, have
been played daily since that time.
Students May Request
Students who wish to have a par-
ticular selection played should leave
their request at the League desk or
give it to one of the girls. If the rec-
ords are in the Library, they will be
performed within two days.
Here, on the second floor of the
League, both men and women stu-
dents have the opportunity to listen
to their favorite classical records.
There is always a group present,
studying, smoking, tapping their fin-
gers in time to the music, or quietly
discussing the techniques of the var-
ious performers.
Army Dictates
Spring Fashions
For Overseas
Vogue may dictate that the well
dressed woman will be wearing bright
silk prints this spring but the Army
dictates that the well dressed officer
will be wearing khaki when he leaves
for overseas.
In previous wars each soldier car-
ried his gun and a few small articles
in his knapsack; in 1942 the official
equipment lists 46 articles ranging
from folding canvas buckets to gas
masks. Shirts, sacks, handkerchiefs,
service hats,'overcoats and gloves all
contribute to the solder's "well-
groomed" appearance and a in-
cluded in his official equipment. To-
uay each article is designated a defi-
nite place to be worn or carried ac-
cording to whether the soldier is
"dismounted" or "mounted on ve-
List Continues
The list continues with a blank
memo book to be carried in the shirt
pocket, goggles to be worn on the
helmet or in the right shirt pocket,
leggings to be rolled in the bedding
roll and protective ointment to be
carried in the canvas field bag. Ra-
tions, mess kits, and flashlights are
also carried in the field bags while
the steel helmets are attached to
tnem. The "P"s and "S"s after each
article on the list indicate whether
the item is "to be purchased" or to
be obtained from the "Unit Supply
Before leaving on foreign duty the
officers are required to complete vac-
cinations, innoculations and blood
types; make a transcript of their
pay account; allot pay to depend-
ents, Government insurances and al-
lotment therefor and transfer funds.
Two Lockers Given
Uniforms, underclothing and toilet
articles (extra glasses if glasses are
worn) are packed in two lockers and
so distributed that if one locker is
lost "a serviceable amount of uni-
forms will still be available."
One trunk locker, a bedding roll
and one piece of hand luggage are
allowed in the stateroom while the
other trunk locker is stored in the
hold. "Handle with care" stickers
are definitely taboo with the Army
for all baggage must display only
the name, rank and arm of service of
the officer. Absolutely no other
markings are permitted.
Each officer must carry a whistle
overseas (the chain hooked to left
soldir loop buttonhole) in the left
pocket of the shirt or coat and an
identification tag with tape around
his neck under his shirt. The bed-
ding roll is carried on the cargo ve-
hicle or on pack animals.

With what would ordinarily be spring vacation only a few weeks away,
its time to start thinking about how to have a delightful "vacation" in Ann
Arbor while still attending classes. It really won't be as bad as it sounds if'
you take advantage of all the fun planned by W.A.A.
If you don't think hiking is fun, ask those who know-any of the thir-
teen Outing Club members who hiked out to Saginaw Forest last Sunday.
They climbed over fences and even found a patch of snow under a hill and
defied spring with a snowball fight. One fellow who insisted on bringing
eggs had a little difficulty in keeping them intact during this activity, but
a lire was finally built and he got them cooked. Nothing daunts these out-
door individuals for they're planned a breakfast horseback ride for bright
and early next Sunday morning. They will leave Hill Auditorium at 7:30 a.m.
Whether you've ever held a foil in your hand or not, you're welcome to
come to Fencing Club meetings, which are now held on Tuesdays from 4:30
p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Thursdays from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The official
women's fencing team will be on hand to help girls who are interested but
inexperienced in fencing.
There are eight teams left in the semi-finals of the bowling tournament,
which must be played by the end of this week, for the finals will be played
cff next week. No matter who wins, Elizabeth Couart's name will probably
stand out in the records of the tournament, for she caused quite a bit of
excitement last week when she broke all records for women at the W.A.B.
with a score of 214.
When the sun comes out and ice cream cones start melting, it will b
time for softball, so you house managers ought to start thinking about the
time your houses want to play. The times open are 4:30 p.m. and 5:10 p.m.

like Pitch and Putt club members will dust their golf clubs off and loosen
rmth up with some practice shooting 4:30 p.m. today at the W.A.B. There will be
orida a tournament as soon as spring has come for a definite stay, and the eight
sort lowest scorers in the tournament will comprise the golf team and also have
nodel the privilege of playing on the University Golf Course free for the rest of

of on The Rifle Club is really something to be proud of. Every week it has a
nless match with four other universities and each school sends the results of its
actly shooting to every other school in the match. Last week our riflers beat three
bably out of the four schools in its match and the results received so far this week
show that they are keeping up the good work.

"Spring Blow-out," or "Michigan's
Lucky Number Hop," to be held from
9 to 12 p.m., Friday at the Union.
Authoritative sources close to us-
ually well-infored quarters hinted
this morning that completely reliable
information emanating from certain
government agencies held that it was
likely MacArthur had received a well-
earned "vacation."
Pressed for comment by a roving
correspondent for Das Berliner Tage-
blatt, General MacArthur asserted,
"My family hasn't missed one of the
'Blow-outs' for generations."
