Thor Johnson
Again To Lead
U' Orchestra
Delius C Minor Concerto
To Be Given Tuesday;
Miss Okkelberg To Play
The.University Symphony Orches-
tra, under the direction of Thor John-
son, regular conductor, will present
its fourth concert of the season at
8:30 pam. Tuesday in Hill Auditorium.
Featuring the program will be the
Concerto in C minor for Piano and
Orchestra by Frederick Delius. Maud
Okkelberg, instructor of piano in the
School of Music will be the soloist.
The concert will open with Bach's
Chorale-Prelude, as transcribed by
Eugene Ormandy, conductor of the
Philadelphia Orchestra. Following
thiis will be the Brahms Serenade in
D major, Op. 11. As a tribute to the
Easter season Johnson has included
"The Good Friday Spell" from "Par-
sifal," one of Richard Wagner's out-
standing compositions, and described
as "music of serene and lovely or-
chestration." Anton Dvorak's "Sla-
vonic Dance No. 15" brings the con-
cert to a short intermission.
After the intermission Miss Ok-
kelberg will join the orchestra in the
rarely heard concerto in C minor of
Delius'. Although not so well known
for it, Delius wrote a great number
of w*orks for orchestra and chorus as
well as incidental music to dramas.
Born of German parents in Eng-
land, he spent some time in Florida
and Virginia. He lived in France
the greater part of his life and after
many years of continuous work in
music was recognized as a truly
great artist.

May Festival
A musical artist whose rise to fame
is indicative of the opportunities
America provides for even the hum-
blest of its citizens, Marian Ander-.
son will open the 49th annual May
Festival at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday,
May 6, in Hill Auditorium.
Making her fifth Ann Arbor ap-
pearance, Miss Anderson has already
been heard in two May Festivals andr
in two Choral Union concerts. Shee
was born in Philadelphia. At ant
early age she attracted attention sing-f
ing in a neighborhood Baptist Church
choir and in school.
In high school her music began to+
take on a more serious aspect.
Through community interest ex-
pressed through the church and in
other ways, small but helpful funds1
were placed at her disposal, enablingE
her to continue voice studies.
Out of a field of more than 300r
contestants, Miss Anderson won thex
right to appear in a concert in Lewis-1
ohn Stadium and shortly afterwards1
received an minvitation to sing withc
the Philadelphia Symphony Orches-l
Four years of study and concertY
performances in all the great musicalr
capitals of Europe followed. Since
her return to the United States her1
reputation has become nationwide.

arias and songs.j

House Passes
Bill For Army
War Profits Are Limited
As Nation's Productioni
Causes 'Sharp Debate'
WASHINGTON, March 28.-4()-
After sharp debate over the nation's
war production effort, the House to-n
night passed a $18,301,961,345 Armyt
appropriation containing a provisions
to limit war profits on contracts paidj
for from the appropriation.t
Sponsored by Representative CaseC
(Rep.-S.D.), the profits limitationt
was accepted by a standing vote off
70 to 8 without debate, a few min-t
utes before the bill was passed byc
a voice vote.
Case said the amendment would
mean that "net profits" on contracts,r
probably after taxes had been com-
puted. would be limited to 6 per cent,
but there was uncertainty among
other members over operation of the
Chairman Cannon (Dem.-Mo.) of
the Appropriations Committee told
reporters that "while the objective
is splendid, the amendment is abso-
lutely unworkable" and would havet
to be revised in the the Senate.
The amendment said this:
"No part of any appropriation con-<
tained in this act shall be availableC
to pay that portion of a contract for;
construction of any character and/or
procurement of material and supplies
for either the military or naval estab-;
lishments, designated as 'final pay-
ment' to any contractor who fails
to file with the procuring agency a
certificate of costs and an agreement.
for renegotiation of contract and re-
imbursement of profits in excess of
six per cent."
Williams Talk
Will Evaluate
Post-War Life
Prof. Mentor L. Williams of the
English department will speak on
"What Kind of America We Would
Like to See After the War" at 8 p.m.
Wednesday in Room 323 of the
Twice chosen most popular member
of the University faculty, Professor
Williams is a student of American
Literature. His popularity lies in the
active interest which he has always
had for the student body outside of
the classroom.
His interest in student coopera-
tives, in labor education, and in the
problems of youth in general, have
given him a broad background for
the discussion of his topic,
Professor Williams empasizes
that he will not necessarily speak on
what America will be like when the
present conflict comes to a close, but
on what he would like America to be.
The meeting will be sponsored by
the Michigan chapter of the Student
League of America, and will be the
second of a series designed to discuss
problems of the war and the peace
which will follow.
