Carnival In Flanders' To Open
Art Cinema League Series Today

The Art Cinema will open its 1942-
43 season with the presentation of
the French comedy "Carnival in
Flanders" and a Department of Agri-
culture short "Hidden Hunger" at
8:15 p.m. today in the Lydia Mendel-
ssohn Theater.
This program will be continued
through Friday and Saturday, and
tickets can now be purchased at the
box office of the Mendelssohn Thea-
"Carnival in Flanders," which is
supplied with English titles, tells the
story of the troubles of the people in
the Flemish village of Boom at the
time of the Spanish invasion under
King Phillip. Francoise Rosya, Aler-
me, and Jean Murat head a cast of
players which number more than five
thousand in this picture.
Carrying out its policy of present-
ing outstanding American films, the
Art Cinema League will also show a

group of early silent pictures in a
series of four Sunday programs. This
group of pictures will constitute a
survey of films, beginning in 1895 and1
continuing through to 1928.
The first program in this series will
be shown Sunday, Oct. 18, and two
performances will be offered, one at
7 p.m. and the other at 9 p.m. Eight
pictures will be run off in this group,
covering the period from 1895 to 1912.1
Following the custom in past years,
tickets for this series must be pur-
chased for the entire series and not
for single performances. These sea-
son tickets are now on sale at the
Michigan League and Union desks.
This program will include such pic-
tures as the "Execution of Mary,
Queen of Scots" which was produced
in 1895 and which lasts for two to
three minutes. Another film, "Queen
Elizabeth" was made in 1912 and fea-
tures the acting of Sarah Bernhardt.

imported wool
Here is the kind of coat
that really fits the bill for
Ann Arbor's uncertain
weather. Fashionably tai-
lored of fine imported
wools, this coat offers
warmth and protection
from chilling winds. At
the same time it's light as
a feather.

Don Cossacks
To Inaugurate
Music Series
Serge Jaroff Will Direct
Noted Singers In Initial
Choral Union Concert
Decked out in all the necessary
Old World splendor, the Don Cos-
sacks Chorus will step out on the
stage of Hill Auditorium at 8:00 p. m.
next Tuesday to open the 64th annual
Choral Union season.
Noted for their almost orchestral
tone qualities, the Cossacks can sing
everything from Russian peasant
songs to "AverMaria" without even a
whisk of the whiskers.
Under the direction of diminutive
Serge Jaroff, the Cossacks boast a
long and colorful history. Traveling
around the world for more than 20
years now, they manage to keep
themselves in musical trim with the
rigid discipline of the crack cavalry
regiment of which they were members
in the days of the Czar.
Keeping the company, on schedule
between concert appearances is an
assignment of the adjutant - in-
charge-of-travel, one of the choris-
ters elected by the group, whose duty
it is to awaken 33 other members ev-
ery morning on tour. If any of the
boys get stubborn, a pitcher of ice
water usually does the trick.
This does not imply that they are
strictly shower singers though, and
Deems Taylor's comment that they
are "the best I ever heard or hope to
hear, is backed by wide acclaim
throughout the country as well as
their extensive recording for Colum-
bia records.
Tickets for the concert and a few
remaining season tickets are on sale
at the University Musical Society's
office in Burton Tower daily to 5:00
a. m.
Other artists to be presented this
season by the Musical Society include
Gladys Swarthout, Jascha Heifetz,
the Cleveland Orchestra, the Boston
Orchestra, Artur Schnabel, Josef
Hofmann, Nelson Eddy and others.
Yearly activities for the Hopwood
Room will begin today with the first
of the weekly teas held from 4 to 5
p. m.
The Hopwood Room, open every
day from 2 to 5 p. m. to any student
interested in writing, is under the
direction of Prof. Roy W. Cowden.
The room contains a small but ex-
cellent library of contemporary liter-
ature and current periodicals, includ-
ing all the prize-winning Hopwood
manuscripts of former years.
The Department of English
Language and Literature is again
sponsoring the annual Hopwood
contests. Eligible for competition
the second semester, freshmen have
a chance to win $50, $30, or $20,
set aside especially for them in the
fields of the essay, poetry and the
short story.
All undergraduates are allowed to
compete for the $250 awards in dra-
matic writing, essay, fiction and poe-
try. The major awards are open only
to seniors and graduates. Further
information concerning these con-
tests may be obtained in the Hopwood
Room, 3227 Angell Hall.
Former winners of Hopwood awards
continue to have their work pub-
lished. John Ciardi, who captured a
$1200 prize for his poetry in 1939,
has had three poems published in
this month's Poetry, one in the Yale

Review, one in the New Mexico Quar-
terly Review, three in Bogg's latest
American Anthology and two in the
Anthology of Magazine Verse.
Walter Norris, winner of a major
essay award in 1934, has had his
book, "American in Search of a
Way," published by Macmillans on
October 6.
Robert E. Hayden, winner of the
major poetry award in the last con-
test, will publish a lyric poem, "Black
Prof. Price To Play
Flemish Selections
Continuing his series of composi-
tions written especially for the car-
illon, Prof. Percival Price will present
a group of modern Flemish selections
at 7:15 p.m. today.
This music is taken from the com-
positions of the carillon school which
was established in Belgium under
Denyn, Van Hoef, Nees, and Lefevere.
Through the works of 32 graduates,
this musical style is known through-
out Europe, North America and New
Students who would like to observe
the carillon while it is being played
are being admitted to the tower this
week at noon for a short concert by
Professor Price.
Karl Bleyl Will Address

In a personal telegram to Lt. Col.
Carlos P. Romulo, the first of eight
distinguished platform personalities
to appear in the 1942-43 Oratorical
Association Series October 22, Gen-
eral Douglas MacArthur endorsed
Romulo's proposed tour.
Stating that ".I am delighted at
your suggested national lecture tour
to acquaint America with the Philip-
pine and Pacific situation," MacAr-
thur added: "I know of no one so well
qualified to do so and know of no
present duty on which you could ren-
der such valuable service."
Romulo, last man to leave Bataan
before the American surrender, es-
caped in a decrepit old plane that had
been literally fished from the bay. An
obvious target for anti-aircraft guns
captured the day before by the Jap-
anese, his dramatic flight to Mindan-
ao and from there to Australia to
join MacArthur are among the most
exciting stories to come out of this
It is not his own experiences but
those of the American and Filipino
soldiers who died on Bataan and Cor-
regidor that Romulo intends to tell
when he lectures on the "Battle of
Bataan." His aim is not merely to
describe his experiences of the War
of the Pacific, but to impress upon
the hearts and minds of Americans,
the reason for the death of so many
Throughout the heroic battle of the
Philippines, Romulo was General
MacArthur's aide-de-camp, confidant
and friend. As their comrade in arms,
a Filipino officer exposed to the same
dangers and privations, he is well fit-
ted to tell how these soldiers fought
and died.
Romulo is well known to Ameri-

to conform with new
wartime regulations
Throughout the nation Greyhound buses start operating
on new schedules! The change on many routes will be
made on October 15th - and all other routes by
October 20th.
Although Greyhound has been preparing for this change
for some time, it is not a simple thing to rearrange fully
a service that covers 65,000 miles of routes and has
transported more than 85 million passengers since
Pearl Harbor. Until every detail of the new service is
carefully worked out you may be inconvenienced on
occasion. We hope you'll take it in stride, as we're doing
our best to maintain customary high standards of serv-
ice- under unusual conditions.
Now when every bus, every tire, every gallon of gaso-
line must be used to full advantage, you can help in
many ways. Travel on mid-week days when possible,
to avoid week-end crowding-avoid holidays and rush
