Revelli Announces Plas for
New Al -Girl Concert Band




The long arm of the female fight
for equality with the male has
stretched to the University of Michi-
gan campus with all sorts of resultant
victories for the one whose "place is
in the kitchen". But one of the most
amazing and certainly the newest one
of all has just been announced.
William D. Revelli, conductor of
University Bands, has revealed that
efforts are now under way for the
formation of an All-Girl Concert
Band. Yes, that includes all instru-
ments, from the big bass horn to the
pocket size piccolo.
The doubting skeptic has only to
look at a few of the present day ad-
vancements of women in music to be
convinced of the possibilities of such
an organization. Radio listeners will
tell you of the smooth stylings of Phil
Spitalny's All-Girl Orchestra on the
"Hour of Charm", a highly popular
and successful radio show.
Recently the solo trumpet "take-
outs" in Woody Herman's orchestra
have been handled most capably by a
young lady.
Even in the formidable ranks of
our major symphonies, Philadelphia,
Chicago, Cleveland, to name a few,
the personnel includes some fine fem-
inine talent.
One would be conservative to esti-
mate that fifty per cent of the mem-
bers of high school bands are also
members of the skirt-sweater-saddle
shoe set. Some of these outstanding
students graduate to college and uni-
versity bands all over the country.
All girls interested in becoming
Rev. Pickerll
Speaks Today
Freshmen to Hear
Talk on 'Individuality'
The Rev. H. L. Pickerill, director
of the Disciples Guild, will address
members of the freshman class on the
topic "The Meaning and Importance
of Individuality on Campus" in the
second in a series of Freshman Re-
orientation Lectures at 8 p.m. today
at Lane Hall.
Sponsored by the Student Religious
Association, the series is intended to
aid freshmen in solving problems
which they have met since entering
the University.
Emphasis at this meeting will be
laid on the need for rational deter-
mination of the standards which an
individual accepts, with considera-
tion given to the regimentation tak-
ing place today under wartime condi-

members of Michigan's first All-
Girl Band are invited to attend the
first meeting (without instru-
ments) at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12,
in Morris Hall.
And all of this has been achieved
in the span of a few brief years. Not
so very long ago, the woman who ven-
tured outside of the home or the girl's
school was a most unusual one indeed.
But with woman suffrage the flood-
gates were loosed, until now no field
is safe from invasion, from the mas-
culine point of view.
Many University of Michigan stu-
dents will recall the outstanding play-
ing of the band's trombone soloist for
the past two years, Miss Betty Cor-
rell. Miss Correll, for two years with
the Phil Spitalny Orchestra as solo-
ist, has been acclaimed the finest
woman trombonist in the country by
the late Arthur Pryor.
Other Big Ten University Bands
have just admitted girls to their ranks
for the first time this year. In the
Michigan Band they number 23, or
about one-fourth of the total mem-
bership of the band, occupying sev-
eral solo positions.

When they refused to follow specifi-
cations, they were relieved of their
duties in this particular course."
Profs. Dahlstrom and Wenger last
night were still maintaining complete
silence on their position. They de-
clined to comment on either official
Members of the Senate advisory
committee, which will consider the
case tomorrow, were unable to reveal
the contents of the request presented
to the committee by Profs. Dahlstrom
and Wenger. It is not certain whether
the request, which could contain their
side of the story, will be made public,
in view of long-standing policies of
the committee, it was learned last
night. There is, in addition, no guar-
antee that the committee's findings
will be submitted to the President.
A faculty man who is a member of
the American Association of Univer-
sity Professors pointed out yesterday
that the Association has adopted a
resolution which is quoted in its jour-
nal as follows:
"A university or college may not
impose any limitation upon the tea-
cher's freedom in the exposition of
his own subject in the classroom or
in addresses and publications outside
the college, except insofar as the
necessity of adapting instruction to
the needs of immature students." (or
in other special cases).
Text of Professor
Brandt's Statement
(Editor's Note: The following is a
statement released last night by Prof.
Carl G. Brandt relative to the English
I classes taught by Professors Christian
N. Wenger and Carl E. Dahlstrom.)
"English I in the College of En-
gineering is ordinarily divided nto
20 or 25 sections to accommodate
the large number of students who
are required to enroll in it. It is
necessary in the conduct of any
course in which there are many
sections that the teaching in all
sections be reasonably uniform in
course content. Therefore, in order
to provide the necessary uniformity
in English I, the staff of the De-
partment of Engineering English
set up certain requirements for the
course. These have been in effect
since 1938.
"Roughly, the uniform program

in English I provides for the teach-
ing of, equal amounts of composi-
tion and literature. Although all
other members of the department
had been following the uniform
program, the course, as it was being
taught by Professors Dahlstrom
and Wenger, contained almost no
literature and did not meet the re-
quirements as they had been es-
tablished by the department. Fur-
ther, they have failed to use in
their classes the texts prescribed
by the department as a part of the
standard teaching program.
"The Engineering English De-
partment, the executive committee,
the standing committee, and the
Dean of the College of Engineering
had requested on numerous occa-
sions, beginning on Nov. 19, that
Professors Dahlstrom and Wenger
conform with the course set up by
the department. Since these re-
quests had not been satisfied, and
the desired uniformity had not
been attained, it became necessary
that some action be taken against
the members of the department
who are not following the wishes
of the Department of Engineering
English in the College of Engineer-
