Sailors Are Guests
Variety will be the watchword, but
it will be the University Concert
Band which will take the spotlight
when the University of Michigan
Club of Detroit presents its annual
U of M Night tomorrow in Detroit.
Under the direction of Prof. Wil-
liam D. Revelli the band will intro-
duce and sustain the patriotic note
of the program, as well as present a
number of other selections for the
audience's approval.
Shortly after the beginning of the
program a strain from "Anchors
Aweigh" will herald the entrance of
a contingent of sailors, guests of the
Detroit Alumni in keeping with the
patriotic theme.
Peabody To Be Guest Soloist
Also in keeping with that theme
will be the presence of Lieut. Comm.
Edwin Peabody, director of music at
the U.S. Naval Training Station at
Great Lakes, Ill., as guest conductor
and soloist of the evening.
Known as "The Banjo King" before
becoming a naval officer, Command-
er Peabody will present the same
'music which has already thrilled
thousands of recruits at the Great
Lakes Training Station.
Other numbers to be played by the
band under the direction of Professor
Revelli will be El Relicario, by Padil-
la; Sorcerer's Apprentice, by Dukas;
Student Prince, by Romberg; Swing-
ing the Ingots; Michigan Fantasy,
conducted by composer Donn Chown,
'40; Stars and Stripes, by Sousa, and
The Yellow and The Blue.
Union Opera Stars To Appear
Secondary attraction on a full pro-
gram will be the presence of female
impersonator Mike Ames, of Union
Opera fame, in the title role of a real
gay nineties melodrama, "Bertha, the
Sewing Machine Girl." Other former
Union Opera stars will appear in the
supporting cast, and the popular
Can-Can chorus from this year's
opera will also be at hand.
Final attractions on the program
will be the singing of the Psurfs, in-
formal glee club of law students, and
the playing of a "brilliant" new piano
team of Milliken and Johnson.
Among the "books to be published
during spring months," featured in
the March 8 New York Times Book
Review section, are listed the manu-
scripts of three former Hopwood con-
Beatrice Borst's 1941 $1000 winner,
"Nearer the Earth," an "intimate
study of one young woman's life,"
will make its debut under the Ran-
dom House colors.

Malcom Brinnin, 1940 major prize
winner. Another Hopwood partici-
pant, Barbara Fleury, will see pub-
lication: E. P. Dutton & Company's

The meeting will be sponsored by
the Michigan Chapter of the Stu-
dent League of America as part of it-
new program. The first of a series
of lectures and discussions, it is
designed to make clear the problems
and dangers involved in the present
crisis and to survey various plans
for reconstruction at the conclusion
of the war. It will be a free and
open forum for all those who attend.
Major points to be discussed will
be plans for international reorgani-
zation and reconstruction, the value
of such plans, and obstacles which
must be overcome before they can
be put into operation.
Professor Hostie came to the Uni-
versity at the beginning of the pres-
ent semester. He took over classes
conducted by Prof. Harlow J. Hene-
man who at that time assumed direc-
tion of the University War Board.
A Belgian citizen, he was caught
here at the time his country was
overrun by the Nazis. He then was
engaged in mediating a dispute which'
had arisen between the American and
Canadian governments.
He has had much experience with
the form and operation of inter-
national organizations, having been
connected with the League of Nations
since its inception.

Stage Crew Construction Problems


"Under the Gaslight" is causing
more locomotive trouble to the stage
crew which must construct a train
of the 1860's than to the hero who is
tied to the tracks as the iron horse
First statement in proof of this
fact is that the hero gets rescued. But
no one is coming to the rescue of
Robert Mellencamp, art director, and
his hardy crew who must build a
train in less than four days. This
speedy construction would probably
be very encouraging to Donald Nelson
and others who wish to speed up
Building the steam engine, how-
ever, is only a small part of what
must be accomplished by Sunday's
dress rehearsal time. A pier, a ship
and 10 sets must be completed also.
(One of the 11 sets is finished.)
The train in question is of the
large-wheel, big-steam-funnel varie-
ty and will be made of beaverboard
painted black. It will roll on casters
on a track which comes out towardj
the audience from stage left. A big
electric searchlight will also be part
of the locomotive's equipment.

Drs. Carl and Gerty Cori, well
known husband and wife team from
Washington University, will present
three lectures here Friday and Sat-
urday under the auspices of the De-
partment of Biological Chemistry and
the School of Medicine.
Of special interest to students of
the biological sciences, all lectures
are to be held in the Rackham
Amphitheatre and will be illustrated.
They will be presented as follows:
"The Role of Enzymes in Carbo-
hydrate Metabolism," by Dr. Carl
Cori, 4:15 p.m. Friday.
"The Isolation and Properties of
Some Enzymes Concerned with Car-
bohydrate Metabolism," by Dr. Gerty
Cori, 8:15 p.m. Friday.
"The Enzymatic Conversion of Glu-
cose to Glycogen," by Dr. Carl Cori,
11 a.m. Saturday.

with rice and water will convey to
the audience the point when the poor
defenseless girl splashes into the
For the whole show a false pros-
cenium will be used with a stylized
space setting. The stylization exists
in the angled walls of the standing
scenery. Mellencamp decided upon
this type of setting instead of drops
because a more interesting effect will
thus be achieved.
In addition to the river and train
scenes there are sets in Delmonico's
Blue Room in New York City during
the post-Civil War Period, an ornate
parlor in the heroine's home (before

she leaves home), a basement room
in a tenement house in New York-
slummy but picturesque, and a court-
room scene.
Since all the sets are not complete
sets (according to the stylization),
black curtain drops will be used to
fill in around the tops of the scenery.
"Under the Gaslight" by Augustin
Daly will play before these sets under
the auspices of Play Production of
the Department of Speech Wednes-
day through Saturday, April 1 to 4,
in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Mail and phone orders are now being
received at the box office.
Previous presentations of Play

Drying Out The 'Wets'.
Dickinson Proposes Prohibiti1on

LANSING, March 24,--P))-Former
Governor Luren D. Dickinson, 82-
year-old foe of sin and "high life,"
proposed today that President Roose-
velt enforce prohibition on the na-
tion by proclamation for duration of
the war.
Dickinson, who in 1939 caused na-
tion-wide repercussions with a blast
at drinking which he said he wit-
nessed at a national conference of
governors in New York, said he "na-
turally" expected such an executive
order would be accompanied by "the
banishing of liquors from the White
House" and by abstention on the
part of "all governors, congressmen,
legislators and war leaders in their
The former governor declared in
a formal statement such a prohibi-
tion proclamation was imposed dur-

ing the first World War, and told
news men who questioned his mem-
ory that "that's right, President Wil-
son said it."
He preluded his proposal with a
statement that literally billions of
dollars are lost annually due to crime
and "its allies, insanity, disease and
kindred ailments" andl in gambling
"which can be traced to illegitimate
use of liquors."
Asserting enough money could be
saved by returning the nation to pro-
hibition to pay for the civilian pro-
tective services, the former governor
asked "What should be the first ef-
fective act?" and answered the ques-
tion himself thus:
"Proclamation by the President
suspending the sale of beverage
liquors during the war."
