"America is the richest nation In
all the world in vocal material,"
Frederick Jagel, Metropolitan opera
tenor who will appear on the May
Festival program, told music school
students in a guest lecture yesterday
in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Importance of Ideals
Jagel spoke on the problems of a
professional singing career, the train-
ing necessary and he illustrated with
incidents from hislife. He stressed
the importance of setting up high
ideals in regard to music, saying that
it is not merely a question of eco
nomic competition, but that any mu-
sician should try to give the greatest
he can to his art.
Before beginning his study for the
opera the famed tenor studied with
an Italian teacher. After this he got
a position in a Broadway movie house
and sang with an orchestra for two
years. Having an opportunity to
study abroad, Jagel went to Italy to
study. He lauded this training but
expressed the opinion that this field
of experience would not be opened
up for at least three years after the
Need for Languages
In emphasizing the importance of
the study of foreign languages for a
voice career, Jagel said that Spanish
is a very important language today
because he believes that the South
American concert field is going to
expand tremendously in the near fu-
Counselling the students who as-
pired to a professional music career
to establish first a good inclusive
music foundation Jagel said, "A sing-
er who is just a singer is not enough.
I would say that 98 per cent of Amer-
ica's foremost singers today are good

"Memories of a French Student," at

Berahya has studied at several'
French schools. During the two
years preceding November, 1939 he
was a student at L'Ecole National
d'Arts et Mtiers, an engineering
school at Angers, France. He has
since made a trip to Turkey, from
which he returned by way of Spain
and Portugal only four months, ago,
While he was abroad he wrote for
several European newspapers.
Tomorrow night Berahya will
speak on his impressions of France as
compared to student life in America.
He will discuss the situation in France
when he left it in 1939 and also the
recent situation there.

Radio Course
Is Cancelled
Facilities Are Lacking
For Women's Class
Announcement of the cancellation
of a course to prepare women to assist
in the development of new devices in
aircraft radio for the Signal Corps
at Wright Field which was to have
been given soon was made yesterday
by Prof. Robert H. Sherlock, coordi-
nator of ESMWT.
The six months' course which was
to have been repeated, would conflict
with the Army Specialized Training
Program and, the Naval College
Training Program, in facilities need-
"Since the Army, Navy and Signal
Corps all insist that their courses be
held in the daytime, there is a lack
of facilities, chiefly laboratory space,
for giving the course," Prof. Sherlock
"The same question will probably
arise later in connection with Ord-
nance Material Inspection and Air-
craft Inspection Courses," he pre-
dicted, "but in-rthat case it may be
teaching most of the laboratory clas-
ses for these courses in the evening."
The course was announced last
month through The Michigan Daily.

cation after the war was presented to
a committee of nine University fac-
ulty men last week by Henry S. Cur-
tis, former professor at Harvard,
Columbia, and Cornell, and vice-
president of the National Recreation
The plan had been presented two
weeks ago to a special committee at
Washington, D.C. at the request of
Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Basic to the success of any inter-
national educational plan, there must
be a common understanding among
the nations of the world,.said Prof.
In his report he advocated the call-
ing of an international conference on
education and peace by President
Roosevelt. The conference would
bring to Washington educational
leaders and statesmen of each of
the independent allied nations, as
well as Turkey and Spanish America.
Included in the faculty committee
are Dean James D. Edmonson of the
School of Education; Prof. Louis A.
Hopkins, chairman of the War Board;

Stalin's Speeches Are Documents
Of Soviet Policy, Says Cassidy

try. Reference to them makes
clear much about the Soviet' Union
that sometimes seems abroad to be
a mystery.
The dominating note is one of
firm confidence in victory. Even
in his first broadcast, the "scorched
earth" speech, calling on the Rus-'
sians to leave nothing to the in-
vader, while the Germans were
stampeding into the country, Sta-.
lin closed with the slogan: "For-
ward -to Victory." That thought,
in one form or another,-has been,
ever since; his conclusion.
Prophetically, he said in the
same speech, "In this great war,
we shall have true allies in the
peoples of Europe and America."
Despite differences which have
arisen since then, particularly over
the second front, that has remained
his story..
As the war proceeds, his, orders
become more specific: increase pro-
duction of tanks and anti-tank
weapons, learn to handle these
weapons perfectly, stiffen discipline
and stimulate guerilla warfare, ex-
terminate every invader, and fin-
ally, destroy the Nazi state, the
Nazi army and the Nazi "new or-
der" in Europe.
In these pronouncements, there
are clues to the future domestic
status planned for the Soviet' Un-
ion; a continued Soviet system,
controlled by Soviet government
and Communist party organs, with

socialized industry and collectivized
There are indications of the Sov-
iet claims at the peace conference:
the Baltic states, Belo-Russia, Kar-
elia and Moldavia, all belonging to
the Soviet Union, but no aspira-
tions to teritory which was outside
the Soviet -fold before the war, in-
cluding specifically Iran and Sla-
vonic nations like Yugoslavia.
There are suggestions of the Sov-
iet attitude toward Post-War Ger-
many: destruction of the Nazi re-
gime, with its army and new order,
but: maintenance of a unified Ger-
man people and nation, with some
sort of organized military force of
its own.
There are signs of the future
foreign policy of the Soviet Union:
non-interference in the internal
affairs of other nations, collabora-
tion .with Great Britain and the
United States, racial and national
equality, territorial integrity and
political sovereignty for occupied
nations and economic assistance in
reconstruction of devastated coun-
Given Stalin as a victory, that
is his outline of the Soviet Union of
the future.

Since 1938 Friers has been Latin
American correspondent for Booth
Newspapers, working mainly near the
Panama Canal.
"Wheels over the Andes" is the
first picture ever made of the Simon
Bolivar highway. Friers filmed the
pictures' to show what the Latin
American peoples are really like. Fea-
tured in it is Chico, ."Ecuador's mis-
chief making monkey," who was with
him much of the time when the pic-
ture was made.
This movie has been shown at
Town Hall, St. Louis; The Chicago
Adventures Club and The University
of Dayton.
At the present time Friers is wait-
ing for a call from the Marines where
he expects to continue his travels.
After the war he expects to circle
the globe again; but this time he
only plans to cross 1,800 miles of
water. He will avoid crossing many
miles of water by walking across the
ice from Alaska to Siberia.
