Tunisian Mud Slows Allied Operations

Religious education needs special
supervision just as much as any oth-
er kind of training, Dr. Ernest J.
Chave, president of the National Re-
ligious Education Association, said
yesterday in speaking before forty
representatives of religious groups
at the ninth annual conference of
the Michigan R.E.A.
"This supervision involves three
major emphases," he continued.
"There must be a statement of the
aim and objects by the teaching
staff in terms of changes to be ex-
pected; there must be a record kept
of what takes place among persons
and groups in behavior; and there
must be a re-study of the super-
visor's program with the concerte
use of what has taken place while
former goals are being pursued."
Election of officers for the Mich-
igan chapter of the R.E.A. was also
held. Dean Johnh . Quinn of the
University of Detroit was chosen
president; the Rev. E. E. Piper of
St. Mathias' Rectory of Detroit is
vice-president and Mrs. Alice God-
dard, director of religious education
for the Detroit Council of Churches
is the new secretary. Dr. E. W.
Blakeman has been appointed per-
manent counselor for the Michigan
In a special survey made by Ed-
ward G. Grosbeck and Dr. Blake-
man, it was pointed out that only
28 per cent of the students in state
universities and colleges in Michi-
gan attend worship regularly, while
in church colleges 80 per cent of the
students participate. This survey,
whicli is now being carried on
throughout the United States, will
attempt to clarify such problems as
the provision of religious education

for men in uniform on campuses, and
the continuing of religious programs
on curtailed budgets.

ership werelgiven by Prof. Charles
Kraft of Albion, Dean Joseph P.

versity of Detroit.
Glee Club Will
Hold Serenade
Mens sGroi Io Sing
.A 'All-Campus' Event
An All-Campus Serenade by the
Men's Glee Club will be given for all
students Thursday, April 29, on the
steps of the Main Library.
Featuring rollicking songs, senti-
mental songs, and all the songs of
campus tradition, the sing will give
everyone the opportunity to hum,
sing, or whistle with the group, his
chum, or his date.
Prof. David Mattern, director of
the Men's Glee Club, says that
"Every Michigan student wants to
learn and to sing his own college
songs. The All-Campus Serenade will
fulfill this desire, and the student
can sing the "best of our college
The Glee Club will present a few
special songs which have been -chos-
en favorites on their serenades.
While the theme of the serenade will
be the songs of Michigan, the. pro-
gram will not neglect the old favor-
ites and the community songs that
everyone enjoys singing.

Student Gives Explanation for
Argentina's Isolationist Policy

Prof. Koella
VNill Diiect
Production Involves
Problems of Accent
And Characterization
"The production of a foreign lan-
guage play such as 'Le Monde ou'
l'on s'ennuie', this year's French
play to be given at 8:30 p.m., April
27, in the Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-
tre, involves problems which are not
met in others." Prof. Charles E.
Koella, director of the French plays
and faculty adviser of the French
Club,.said yesterday.
One of the first problems is that
of developing good pronunciation
and intonation. "The majority of
this cast," said Prof. Koella, "possess
an excellent French accent."
Characterizations Are Difficult
There is also the problem of char-
acterization in a foreign language.
Constance Taber, for instance, plays
the part of a shrewd duchess, a wom-
an of the world.
Shirley Robin, as Suzanne, is a
vivacious, unmannered young French
girl. Sally Levy plays the part of
the sophisticated Comitesse de Ce'ran.
Hazel Batchelor has the problem of
portraying an aristocratic English-
woman without an English accent.
Hoe Seltzer must assume the !gruff
voice of the general in French. Jack
Vaughn as Francois imitates an Eng-
lish accent in French. Richard Kop-
pitch, as a learned orientalist, deliv-
ers a philosophical speech in French.
Have Not Studied in France
"These people," said Prof. Koella,
"have not studied in France. How-
ever, their characterizations are ex-
The members of the cast are also
finding that 'gestures in a French
play differ from those in another
play. "But the members of the cast
are learning these gestures and in-
tonations which are typical of
French high society quickly," Prof.
Koella said.
Besides directing several French
plays, including "La Belle Aventure,"
last year's French play, and "Les
Dames aux chapeaus verts" in 1939,
Prof. Koella has also acted in French
plays. He played the part of Harpa-
gon in "The Miser" by Moliere,
which was given by the French club
in 1939.
Pre-Med Club To Meet
The Pre-Medical Society will meet

The Rev. Hughes, who was a prom-
inent pastor in Wales, was vacation-

out, and he was unable to return so

the probable future of Britain's col-
onies, and what their status would

organization. Following short talks
by members of the panel, the audi-

The discussion is one of a weekly
series on post-war problems spon-

(Editor's Note: The following is the
fifth in a series of articles portraying
the thoughts and feelings that are
dominant in Latin-American countries
"Since Argentina is now the only
neutral country in the Western
Hemisphere, it is interesting to con-
sider some of the facts that have
influenced this position," Jorge Sim-
onelli, Spec., of Buenos Aires, said
"The Argentinian government of
today claims to be neither pro-
Nazi nor pro-Allied, but pro-Argen-
tina," Simonelli said, "and keeps
the position of isolationism which in
fact was the same that kept England
and France from open war for a long
"The people of Argentina are,
flowever, definitely pro-Allied," Sim-
onelli pointed out. When the Nazi
were reported to be active against the
security' of our country, he explained,
the Chamber of Deputies; represent-
ing the majority of the voting pop-
ulation, voted twice to break rela-
tions with the Axis on this account.
There is, however, a small group,
called Nationalists, he said, which
is trying to keep the country neutral
at any cost, in order not to aid Brit-
ish imperialism which still holds the
Falckland Islands. They are also
against American imperialism which
was once a reality in America; the
German imperialism still being a
theory for them, he said.
' Nevertheless, there are questions
that are bothering Argentinians,
Simonelli said. For instance, many
people wonder how long the Good
Will Policy will last, and how long
the United States is going to keep
Exhibition Held
By Architects
An exhibition of professional and
student work in the Willow Run
area, showing the progression from
regional planning to city planning,
housing and the unit house is now
on display in the third floor exhibi-
tion room of the architecture school.
"The planning is an attempt to
imitate social, community, educa-
tional and religious values," Prof.
George B. Brigham said.
The material presented includes
photographs, drawings, models and
cost data. The display is divided
into four sections. One of the dis-
plays shows the plans developed by
the Housing Associate of Ann Arbor
on a Willow Run site for the Federal-
Public Housing Authority. This
project was stopped by vested inter-
ests, Prof. Brigham said.

the bases in the Continent.
Despite these and similar uncer-
tainties, he said, the Argentinian
people trust the United States and
the Allies because they understand
that the way of life of the Nazis and
Japanese could never find footing in
Argentina, as opposed to any con-
cept of Christianity and civilization.
