Cecil Brown To t
Will Discuss
Cecil Brown-the modern Dante
who radioed the Hell of Axis warfare
in something less than soothing verse
to world-wide audiences-will relate
the story of his perilous adventures
m a war mad world when he pre-
sents his oratorical series lecture here
Monday, April 2-7, in Hill Auditorium.
A survivor of the Nazi march on
r Yugoslavia, part of the English cam-
paign in Libya, and the sinking of
the Repulse, Brown is internationally
famous as a "long-nosed, persistent"
news reporter who manages to get
into and out of one, catastrophe after
the other, each time with a differ-
ent admore exciting story to tell.
Besides being one of the outstanding
war correspondents of CBS, he also
writes articles for several of the pop-
ular magazines.
Brown began his journalistic career
as soon as he graduated from Ohio
Rev. Coughlin
Admits Control
Of Magazne
-ROYAL OAK, April 20.-(R)-The
Rev. Charles E. Coughlin, long a crit-
ic of the Administration, assumed
personal responsibility today for the
control, policies and contents of the
magazine "Social Justice," language
of which Attorney General Biddle
has described as "clearly seditious."
Biddle said last Friday that a Dis-
trict of Columbia Grand Jury would
receive "evidence of any tie-up with
the Axis."
In a statement issued from his of-
fice in the Shrine of the Little Flow-
er, from which he broadcast on na-
tion-wide networks his ideas for
social and monetary reforms in re-
cent years, Father Coughlin said to-
"Time and again I have said, and
here repeat, that I am neither the
editor, publisher, nor owner of Social
Justice Magazine. However, I do here
and now publicly state that I alone
am responsible for and do control
'the magazine, its policies and con-
tents. This sole responsibility and
control over the policy-making and
content of the magazine I have ex-
ercised personally and officially by
my effective moral and spiritual in-
fluence and direction over the edi-
tors, publishers and owners of Social
"If Social Justice, as Attorney
Biddle is reported to have declared
In his press conference, is 'clearly
seditious,' the responsibility is mine
The magazine, Coughlin has stated,
is owned by his parents, Thomas J.
and Amelia Coughlin of Royal Oak,
and is edited by E. Perrin Schwartz.
A Justice Department official at
ashington said today Coughlin's
6tatement of responsibility would
rave "no effect whatsoever" on the
grand jury investigation. Postmast-
er General Walker has scheduled a
hearing at Washington April 29 to
determine whether his recent order
barring use of the mails to "Social
Justice" should be made permanent.

War Experiences


State University in 1929. As he rolled
from paper to paper and from place
to place he gathered new experiences
and ideas and built up an enviable
reputation. In 1937 he went to Eur-
ope as a free-lance correspondent.
but his unusual talents were realized
and he was immediately hired by the
International News Service and went
to work in Paris. In 1940 he was sent
to Rome where he joined the staff
of CBS.
During the beginning of the war
and the first Mediterranean fighting
Brown spoke from Rome, telling the
American public what was going on
there. His accounts were too ac-
curate for the Fascist government and
he was soon compelled to leave Italy.
From Rome Brown was sent to
cover the Balkan war for CBS and
reached Yugoslavia just in time to
meet the German invaders. Nar-
rowly missing death by Nazi motor-
cycle squads, he tangled with Panzer
units, was held up by suspicious Ger-
man officers and finally barely man-
aged to escape.
Next he was sent to Cairo from
which he broadcast the German para-
chute invasion of Crete and described
the escape of Greece's King George
under the fire of Nazi troops.
Then Brown got one of his biggest
and toughest assignments. He was
sent to cover the Far Eastern con-
flict and has since sent over some
of the most sensational stories of the
war to date. He was a passenger on
the Repulse when it sailed from
Singapore and was sunk by the Jap-
anese last Dec. 8 consequently getting
one of the greatest journalistic scoops
of the year.
Engineers' Banquet
WillBe Held May 6
Plans for the annual All-Engineer-
ing banquet, to be held Wednesday,
May 6, in the Union Ballroom, are
well underway, announced chairman
Bob Collins, '42E, and tickets will go
on sale tomorrow.
"The Engineer in the Post-War
World" will be the theme of this
year's banquet, with Dr. William E.
Wiokenden, president of the Case
School of Applied Science. Cleveland,
presenting his views on the subject.
Dr. Wickenden will be introduced by
Dean Ivan C. Crawford of the engi-
neering college. The talk is to be
followed by the presentation of new
officers of the engineering college
professional fraternities. Ted Ken-
nedy, '42E, class president, will be

To Give Annual

To Be Sun Thursday;
Audience To Participate

Almost obscured by smoke lies the overturned hull of the former French liner Normandie at her pier in
the Hudson River in New York. A private company was Barged with "gross carelessness" by a Naval court
of inquiry investigating this third fire aboard the liner.
Ziichigan Schoolmasters Club Will

Appearing in its annual spring
concert, the Men's Varsity Glee Club
will present a program of some of
the best known works for a male
chorus ever written, at 8:15 p.m.
Thursday in Hill Auditorium.
Headlining the first half of the
concert, which will be of a formal
nature, will be the presentation of
an arrangement for men's chorus of
"De Glory Road," a dramatic song in
the mode of a Negro spiritual by
Jacques Wolff.
Bible Verses To Be Sung
The fifty singers, who are under
the direction of Prof. David E. Mat-
tern, will also give "The Creation,"
a musical setting to the first six
verses of the Bible, which brings out
all the drama of the Biblical story of
the creation of the world. It was
written by Richter.
For a change in mood, the lilting
old Scotch tune, "Mary," and the
Negro spiritual, "I'm a Baptist," will
also be rendered by the group.
Audience To Sing
"Let's All Sing" will be the keynote
of the second half of the program
when the audience will be asked to
join in singing many of the old favor-
ites. To aid in stimulating the at-
mosphere of this type of group sing-
ing, a quartet with the aid of a pan-
tomime will harmonize on some of
the accepted barbershop songs.
The club decided to turn over part
of this year's concert to the audience,,
because of the statements by Army
and Navy morale officers that there
is no better cure for "war jitters"
than singing. The concert by the
Glee Club will be the first all-campus,
sing to be sponsored for this purpose
since the war began.
The concert, as in former years,
will be free to the public, and all the
campus is invited to attend.

national tournament and upon the
basis of the scores from all colleges,

lege winning first place will receive

Prof. Koella
Directs Cast
In Avent ure'
"Jack of all trades" might well be
applied to the Cercle Francais' agile
director, Prof. Charles E. Koella, who
is now r'ehearsing a cast of 16 for the
annual French play, "La Belle Aven-
ture," to be presented April 29 in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Because of the intricate details of
pronunciation, diction and intona-
tion which require so much time in
the process of perfection, Professor
Koella has scheduled rehearsals of
the three acts of the comedy for al-
most every day between now and
curtain time.
But it isn't always so easy to find
a time when all of the characters in
an act can get together, so "le direc-
teur" has*to step in and give Helene
in as small a voice as possible or to
assume the poker faced role of Di-
dier, the butler.
When this happens, as it must dur-
ing many rehearsals, a certain ele-
ment of surprise appears. For when
le Comte d'Eguzon puts on his most
serious mood, preparatory to deliv-
ering the most fatherly of counsels,
only a strong variety of concentra-
tion will rule out a broad smile as he
looks into the face of Professor

Gives First Performance
At Defense Talk Here
A new addition to the ROTC, a
fifty-five piece band, made its first

through the cooperation of Prof. Earl
V. Moore, Director of the School of
Music, Herbert G. Watkins, business
manager of the bands, and Prof. Wil-
liam D. Revelli, director of the Uni-
versity Bands.

gle corps, which has previously pro-
vided all the martial music for the
Corps of Cadets. The Drum and
Bugle Corps will continue to function
in addition.
