Ormandy Praises Choral Union
For Work AtFestival Rehearsal

Eugene Ormandy and the Phila-
delphia Orchestra came to town yes-
terday, and from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00
p.m. the stage-door guard in Hill
Auditorium heard enough music to
make him think he was in Carnegie
No sooner was Ormandy in town
than he and the orchestra assembled
for an early morning rehearsal with
Marian Anderson for the evening
concert. After a brief lunch, he was
back in the afternoon to face three
hundred enthusiastic students in a
rehearsal of Beethoven's Ninth.
Then with just a piano for ac-
companiment and himself doubling
on the soprano, tenor and baritone
solo parts, he put them through the
paces. But it was a very different
sort of rehearsal than the typical
conception of the layman. No prima
donnas, no affectation, just plenty of
singing and, every so often, a good-
humored comment was heard from
the conductor.
The Beethoven symphony which he
will direct Saturday evening has a
variety of interpretations and Or-
mandy has a highly graphic and ex-
citing interpretation.
"Roughly speaking," he said, "the
first movement represents the Mys-
teries of Life. The second movement
presents the worldly Joys of Life, and
the third moveient - the inner
Beauty of Life.
"Then, the last movement I almost

picture as a dialogue between God
and Lucifer-man. Lucifer complains
to God of his existence. He can't
find what he's looking for in life.
"A few fragments of the first move-
ment are repeated. 'Look, you have
all the mysteries of life,' says God.
'That's not what I want,' says Luci-
fer. This is voiced by the cellos and
basses. Fragments of the second
movement are heard. Here are the
worldly joys of life. Again the re-
jection. This is repeated with the
third movement, and again Lucifer
must reject it.
"Then, very quietly, the theme of
the last movement, Schiller's 'Ode to
Joy' is heard. Here, Lucifer realizes,
is the answer. (It is man's desire for
something non-existent.) The broth-
erhood of mankind."

Pollock Seeks
Political Rights
For Instructors
Professor Favors Change
To Exempt Educators
From Hatch Act Ban
Testifying in favor of an amend-
ment by Senator Brown exempting
teachers and educators generally
from the Hatch Act ban on partici-
pation in politics, Prof. James K.
Pollock of the political science de-
partment yesterday asserted that the
question of academic freedom is at
As he stood before a Senate com-
mittee meeting in Washington which
is considering the amendment, Prof.
Pollock stated that teachers should
be permitted to participate in poli-
tics if they want to understand bet-
ter the processes of democracy and
to educate American citizens for
Senator Brown explained that the
Hatch Act has been construed to
apply to professors since various
grants in aid from federal funds are
given to educational institutions
throughout the country.
Contradicting this application of
the Act, Donald Dushane of the Na-
tional Education Association testified
that it only costs Uncle Sam 73 cents
per head per year to make political
neuters out of state college and uni-
versity professors.
He claimed that the average fed-
eral grant accounts for only 73 cents
a year out of every state college edu-
cator's salary.
Mrs. Mabel Studebaker, of Erie,
Pa., who represented classroom
teachers said, "Teachers tend to take
the path of least resistance and fail
to mention political subjects at all"
because they fear that their teach-
ings will be misconstrued, and that
they will be accused of violating the
Hatch Act

Publication in the Daily Official
Bulletin is constructive notice to all
members of the University.
While May 30 is a legal holiday, it
is also, this year, the annual Univer-
sity Commencement Day. It is thus
necessary for most University offices
to remain open that day. With the
approval of the Deans of all schools
and colleges, it is announced that
all University offices at which alumni
or others might possibly desire to
call will be kept open, but the head
of each such office may excuse em-
ployees who in his judgment,will not
be needed. Employees remaining on
duty that day may have off, as shahl

In First Play Of Drama Season

"No Time for Comedy," crisp, mod-
ern drama by S. N. Behrman, star-
ring American and European stage
and screen actor Francis' Lederer, will
open Ann Arbor's twelfth annual
Dramatic Season Monday night in
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Behrman, master of clever dia-
logue, creates in this comedy a play-
wright similarly gifted, who is tem-
porarily beguiled by another man's
wife into believing himself a new
Ibsen. The conflict between his wife,
and the other woman is the story.
Opposite Lederer, renown for per-
formances in the stage plays "Golden
Boy" and "Autumn Crocus," and
films "Confessions of a Nazi Spy"
and "One Rainy afternoon," is Edith
Atwater, star of the New York pro-
duction of "The Man Who Came to
Doris Dalton, in her fifth year with

the Dramatic Season, plays a major
rdle in "No Time for Coined'y," along
with Lauren Gilbert, former Michi-
gan' student who used to star in
campus Repertory plays, opposite ac-
tress Martha Scott.
The second week of the Dramatic
Season will feature Madge Evans and
Michael Whalen in Mark Reed's
"Petticoat Fever." During the third
week, Florence Reed and Carl B. Reid
are slated to appear in "Suspect,"
psychological melodrama by Edward
Percy and Reginald Denham, au-
thors of the hair-raiser "Ladies in
Retirement." Jose Ferrer and Uta
Hagen in 'Brandon Thomas' "Char-
ley's Aunt" will wind up the 1942
Dramatic Season.
Season and individual tickets may
still be purchased in the box office
of the Michigan' League.

speeds underground for seven miles
Sending electricity at 120,000 volts through copper con-
ductors in a gas-filled pipe sounds fantastic - but it is
frue. On December 31st of last year, The Detroit Edison
Company placed in service the first high-voltage under-
ground cable in the United States to use gas as a "cushion."
You can distribute electricity cheaper at high voltage
than at low voltage. But in underground cable of this kind,
provision must be made for heat expansion. A temperature
rise in the copper conductor heats the insulation around
the conductor and causes the whole cable to expand. Later
when the cable cools, "pockets" may form in the insulation
and a corona or electrical discharge ay occur in the
pockets, causing trouble, (Trouble at 120,000 volts can be
trouble indeed! This is a thousand times the voltage of the
electricity you use in your household.)
So the cable - consisting of three copper wire ropes
about an inch in diameter, with half-an-inch of insulation
is enclosed in a gas-tight chamber seven miles iong.
This long steel Pipeis filled with an inert gas -nitrogen
under pressure, which retards the expansion of the
cable. Manholes to provide access to the line are built
every quarter-mile. At six points in the line, "stop-joints"
or mechanical barriers prevent the escape of all the nitro-
gen in the 7-mile pipe, in case of a bad leak,
Improvements and 'developments such as these - many
of them pioneered by our engineering staff -help to
bring you better electric service at lower cost. In the last
twenty years, the average price per kilowatthour paid by
