The thirteenth annual Exhibition

stitute of Fine Arts of the Univer-
sity, will open with an informal re-
ception at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow in the
concourse of the League, Prof. John.
G. Winter, director of the Institute,
announced 'yesterday.
This display will not only include
the work of several students but also
many samples of the sculpture of Dr.
Avard Fairbanks, nationally famous
sculptor at the University. The most
prominent exhibit will be a full-size
head taken from Dr. Fairbanks' latest
heroic statue, "Lincoln the Frontiers-
man." Also, Professor Fairbanks will
display a working model of this sta-
tue which he made for the Ewa Plan-
tation School near Honolulu.
This year 37 pieces will be shown,
whereas last year only 24 were in-
cluded. Professor Fairbanks reported
that several Michigan artists from
all over the state have been invited
to attend the opening reception.
The student work includes not only'
that of persons enrolled in the regu-
lar University courses, but that of
students in University Extension
work. Dr. Fairbanks pointed out that
these students come from many parts
of thecountry, and even one from
Istanbul, Turkey.
The exhibition will remain open
to all persons interested in sculpture
until the time of commencement.

R.O.T.C. Men
Cadets Introduce Military
Marching Music Here
For Teting Purposes
Shouting at the top of their voices
to the beat of the marching cadence,
cadets of Company L of the ROTC
introduced military singing to the
campus in a surprise performance at
the'regimental review held Friday in
the Stadium.
Gregory S. Dolgorukov, former
Michigan student and recipient of
BSE, LLB, and MSE degrees from
the University, with the assistance
of three members of the Don Cos-
sack Chorus and a group of pre-'
viously trained cadets, instructed the
company in the art of military sing-
Differing greatly from other types
of singing, these martial airs are
shouted in as loud a voice as possi-
ble by the cadets as they march. The
first two lines of tlW song are sung
by two leaders and then the chorus
is chanted twice over by the entire
The music is designed to be sung
while marching and is so arranged
that breathing is not interfered with.
Used in many European armies, such
singing has been found to create a
unifying spirit in the men, and to'
make them forget the long miles
during marches.
Major Alexander Laurow, who is
stationed at the Lowry Flying Field
in Colorado, explained the purpose
of the singing to the cadets of Com-
pany L, and stated that this experi-
mental work is being carried on with
the possibility that the army may
adopt it.E
Feature of the final regimentalj
review before the Federal inspection
which will be held May 7 was the
presentation of the picture of Lt.
George Cannon to the ROTC corps
by his mother, Mrs. B. B. Cannon.
Planned as the largest Federal in-
spection in years, the Governor and
many other high state officials have
been invited to attend.

his ration book over to the person
in charge for his period of stay.
Beseiged by a flood of inquiries as
to how the ration plan will affect
particular groups of students, Wil-
liams made the blanket statement
"every student must register." "Stu-
dents eating in fraterinties sorori-
ties, dormitories, cooperative houses
and restaurants may not have any
occasion to buy sugar, since such
places are given an allotment of
sugar for the entire group of persons
eating there," he declared. "But they
may need them in the future for
other commodities that may be ra-
Williams also pointed out that stu-
dents should not buy sugar unless
they absolutely need it. Students
living with ttheir families in Ann
Arbor must take their ration books in
person to buy sugar or must have
some member of the family take it
fo' them. Merchants cannot ac-
cept fibre than one ration stamp

stead of the speech department an-
nounced yesterday.
The visiting faculty of the depart-a

bers of the play production staff and

who have distinguished themselves
in the field of drama. Already called

who will be a lecturer in the depart-
ment and art director of the season;

"This is the first time in the en-

able to present a full productidn
staff of such distinguished men and
women drawn from the professional
Of the visiting artists perhaps the
best-known is Howard Bay, stage
designer, who ranks with the highest
in his field. "The Moon Is Down" is
the latest of five productions "on
which Bay has worked this winter.
He has shown special interest in the
phase of New York production work
that should be emphasized inmuri-
versity departments, ever since he
taught college directors at the Vas-
sar summer design training course.
"The Corn Is Green," " . . . one-
third of a nation . . .," "Brooklyn
USA," and "Fifth Column" are a few
of his successes. In addition to New
York theatre work, Mr. Bay has been
on the faculty of the New Theatre
School and Vassar- College and has
been a designer for numerous sum-
mer and stock companies. He was
a Guggenheim Fellow in 1940-41.
Enthusiasm Is Widespread
Bay's enthusiasm for the college
repertory group was so great that it
spread among his fellow workers in
New York, and Armistead and Kel-
lam, who worked with him on Broad-
way productions last winter, were
persuaded to accept positions in Ann
Arbor for the summer season.
Armistead, who is prominent both
as a scenic artist and an easel paint-
er, has bben associated with Bay as
painter of all his recent New York

'Waste, Water And Duplication'?
Chita go's Two Year. Program
Lauded, Panned By Educators
4' -- --__ _ _

CHICAGO, May 2.--P-The Uni-
versity of Chicago's revolutionary
plan to award the bachelor of arts
degree at the end of the sophomore
year instead of at the finish of the
senior term was lauded and lam-
basted today by leaders in the aca-
demic field.
It was viewed variously, in a sym-
posium before the American Council
on Education, as something that was
needed in peace and even more so in
wartime and as a step that likely
would lead to general chaos and
hair-pulling among school people.
Robert M. Hutchins, Chicago's
president and champion of the sys-
tem recently adopted there, reported
that his university determined to
provide a liberal education by the
end of the sophomore year in a pro-
gram which squeezes out "waste, wa-
ter and duplication." He contended
that such a course was desirable at

any time but was imperative during
the war.
"Young men are going to have to
leave us at the age of twenty," he
added. "It is our duty to give them
before they go the education every
citizen should have."
President William P. Tolley of Al-
legheny College termed the idea "the
expression of an inferiority complex
by Americans dazzled by the educa-
tional systems of the old world." He
"Although Mr. Hutchins complains
that the American college boy lags
two years behind the English, French
and German boy of the same age, it
is interesting to note. that to over-
come this lag, he proposes two less
years of schooling. It is perfectly
silly to think that general education
should come to a full stop at the end
of the sophomore year."
