der the direction of Prof. William D.
Revelli will present literally a family
of guests at its annual Spring Con-
cert Tuesday, as both composer Roy
Harris and his wife, pianist Johana
Harris, will be featured on the pro-
The talents of the two will be com-
bined in the main attraction of the
evening, Professor Revelli revealed,
when Mrs. Harris will act as piano
soloist for the world premiere of her
husband's latest composition, "Con-
certo for Piano and Band."
Not only will this number be played

of Professor Revelli, following a con-
ference at New York University in
the summer of 1940.

featured on the program will be
"Freedom's Land," a piece written for
band and glee club. The singing will
be done by the University Men's Glee
Club under the direction of Prof.
David Mattern of the School of Music.
Like other band presentations in
the past, the concert will be free of
charge, Band Manager Stuart A.
Park, '42, has announced, and stu-
dents need not worry about procur-
ing tickets.
Catering especially to the more
contemporary compositions for the
latter part of the program, the band
will also present ''When Johnny
Comes Marching Home," the third
Harris number; "Newsreel," a new
selection by William Schman; "Guar-
archa," from Morton Gould's recent
Latin-American Symphonette; and1
Georges Enesco's "Roumanian Rhap-
sody," written especially for band.
Other numbers on the program will
be "Overture to Anacreon" by Cheru-
bini, "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" by
Dukas, "El Relicario" by Padilla and
Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever."

in the Canal Zone and put aboard a train for transfer to the United
States and internment for duration of the war. Army authorities called
him 'Otto' and described him as the unofficial mayor of the German
faction held in the detention camp. This picture came from Balboa, C. Z.

Vurster Death
Still Qitestioned

Further evidence of the strange
torch death of Orville F. Wurster,
Manchester store clerk, will be
brought to light as the coroner's in-
quest resumes hearings today in
Manchester, it was anounced.
Prosecutor George Meader dis-
closed that two scientific reports con-
taining., important evidence are
scheduled for today's hearing One is
the report of Dr. Robert J. Parsons,
University hospital pathologist, of
his post-mortem examination of
Wurster's body, and the other is a
report from the state crime labora-
tory at Lansing, on its examination
of two kerosene cans and Wurster's
Meader said the inquest would re-
main in session tonight if necessary,
in an effort to complete it in one day.
The location of the hearing was
moved to the Manchester village
council chambers to provide more
room for the public.
Wurster disappeared from Man-
chester on the night of March 15.
His disappearance became known
when he failed to report for work
the following morning at his uncle's
dry goods store.
A searching party found the
burned body on the morning of
March 17 in a woods a mile east of
the village.

Any Use Of Ger s
The spectre of bacteria warfare-
a basis of wartime horror tales since
1918-will probably remain in the
pages of pseudo-scientific fiction
during the present struggle, Univer-
sity public health faculty men de-
clared yesterday.
Technical difficulties of dissemina-
tion combined with the problem of
quickly reaching an entire popula-
tion have made bacteria highly un-
feasible as a means of attack, it was
asserted in an article published by
the School of Public Health.
The article pointed out the possi-
bility of attempted use of disease
germs but declared that such a
scheme is "fraught with many com-
plications not apparent to the aver-
age person."
With the views of several public
health faculty members as its basis,
the article cited sabotage of public
water, food and milk supplies as the
most effective means of waging bac-
terial warfare.
"However to make such a venture
worthwhile would require that the
bacteria reach thousands of people
in a very short time," it was asserted.
The use of aviation to scatter

terial bombs was debunked on the
ground that "there could be no way
of assuring that the organisms would
get into the air in sufficient quanti-
ties to provc harmful."
Anti-aircraft fire and weather con-
ditions are sufficient to make germ
spraying impractical. and bombs
would be no improvement. "Explosive
bombs would scatter the bacteria,"
the article declared, "but at the same
time would destroy many of the or-
Non-explosive glass or cellophane
containers dropped from the air

the immediate schduilc, it was
pointed out.
On a less wvierd level, the article
assured that modern methods of can-
ning, food inspection and pasteuri-
zation are protection in themselves
against any possible Axis bacteria.

Spring Dance
Frills' Halted
By West Quad
Voting to the Bomber-Scholarship
Fund 50 dollars ordinarily used to
embellish its annual Spring Formal,
the West Quadrangle Council yester-
day suggested that dormitories and
fraternities reduce the splendor of
their social activities while the emier-
gency lasts.
"We feel that by cutting the ex-
travagance which a formal entails,
and using our own facilities, we can
lower expenses considerably," Frank-
lin Powers, '42, treasurer of the
Council, said in explaining the move.
"We hope other organizations will
consider our policy."
The Council, representing almost
1 one thousand students; recommended
in adition that each of the eight
houses in the West Quadrangle con-
tribute at least ten dollars to " the
Michigan House yesterday pre-
sented twenty-five dollars and Lloyd
and Chicago Houses have agreed to
contribute ten dollars, according to
treasurer Powers.
Other houses, working individually,
previously had pledged support to the
Scholarship campaign.
With its frills shorn away, the
dance will be held during the first
week of May in the West Quadrangle,
instead of at the Union or League
where it originally was scheduled.

Seven Voters
.Put Candidate
In Ward Post
Crusading Wertley Palmerton
broke the back of the city's election-
eering machines Monday as he swept
to victory in a one-cornered election.
No fuss and bother over nomina-
tions, no elaborate campaigning, no
politician's promises from him. No
In Monday's city election he was
named constable of the third ward
at the behest of exactly seven voters
-whether or not they were relatives
is a secret that no man may discover
without violating the sanctity of the
Secret of his success was the fact
tha both Democrats and Republicans
neglected to nominate anyone. Thus
Palmerton rode to triumph on the
strength of a tremendous wave of
popular approval despite the fact
that a slumbering press completely
ignored his candidacy.
All but the shouting is not over,
however. The city's solons must ap-
prove this man of the people.
In the opinion of City Clerk Fred
Perry there is little fear in that quar-
ter, for as he remarked, "The man
got seven votes, didn't he."
We're betting on him too. He may
never be President, but he sure knows
all the short cuts.
