Music-Lovers': A Misnomer

The recent May Festival not only
presented famous singers and orches-
tras, varied and difficult numbers,
but it also furnished a cross-section
of typical concert-goers. From the
$2.75 main floor seats to the back
stairs of the second balcony, one
had the opportunity to observe "mu-
sic-lovers" at a premium.
Unsuspecting but obvious were
those ladies who invariably knit upon
afghans during the concerts.
Near-sighted, middle-aged gentle-
men twiddled with their opera glas-
ses. And students attending the pro-
grams usually wrote home to the
folks, prepared English themes, or'
translated German, French, or Span-
ish assignments.
Then there were the people who,
clutching ticket stubs triumphantly,

spent the evening in fruitless search
for their seats.
No less obvious were those who
looked longingly at their cigarette
cases during the first part of the
program, fidgeting to dash out for
a quick drag at intermission.
However, to end these annoyances,
the following solutions have been
offered. A corner of Hill Auditorium
will be partitioned off for the knit-
ters-call it the Knit Wit Koncert
Knook. Study halls will be set up
in the corridors for the students. An-
other part would be a perpetual maze,
in which the seat numbers and the
ticket stubs would not co-incide. Here
the searchers would be turned loose,
t6 wander around to their hearts'
But these solutions may be disas-
trous, for it might leave the cele-
brated performers playing to an
empty auditorium.

Columbia Qads
Publish Papers
For Experience
Bent upon making a success of
their newspaper careers, fifty stu-
dents in the Graduate School of
Journalism at Columbia are being
"farmed out" to try their hand at
publishing the daily papers boasted
by eight nearby towns.
Dean Ackerman of the Graduate
School of Journalism, says, "Through
the cooperation of eight publishers
and their new staffs, our students
have had one of the finest laboratory
experiences in the thirty-year history
of the school."
One week before they are to take
over the newspaper, the students
visit the town and become acquaint-
ed with the community and the paper
in general. The next week they re-
turn and give it "the works." For
one day they do all the reporting, re-
writing, editing, headlining, and
make-up for the publication. This
is invaluable as experience and as
practical application of the theories
they learn in the classroom.
This project is also a test of their
versatility. On April 30 a sports
page, which had been reported, edit-
ed, and laid out by a staff made ip
exclusively of women, was published.
Its success was a good indication of
the worth of the experiment.
Music Honor Society
Presents Musicale
Mu Phi Epsilon, national music
honor society, held a formal musi-
cale yesterday at the home of Mrs.
Alexander G. Ruthven.
Students in the School of Music
rendered piano and carinet, solos for
the occasion, and a woodwind quar-
tet played a feature composition of
Early American music which was
dedicated to the society.
Another feature of the evening
was the initiation of Mrs. Joseph N.
Sinclair as a patroness for the so-

Union Will Present
Pan-American Fiesta
At Friday's Dance
The Friday dance at the Union

rhumba music when it features the
"Pan-American Fiesta."
The presentation will star a Chil-
ean quartet who are singing and
playing authorities on rhumba and
samba music. The quartet has ap-
peared previously at West Quad
functions and their appearance this
week-end at the Union dance results
from popular request.

tra will be on hand also.

Camp jobs are literally" a dime a
dozen" these days, according to re-
ports coming out of the Bureau of
Appointments and Barbour Gym-
nasium. Camps of all sizes are badly
in need of counselors, even those with
a minimum of experience, and oppor-
tunities for employment in camps
exist at every corner.
A prospective counselor or water-
front director can practically pick
the camp she wants according to
location, length of the camping peri-
od, and salary. The latter element
varies according to experience, of
Applications for camp positions,
either for counselors, unit leaders, or
waterfront directors, will be accepted
at the Bureau of Appointments or at
Room 15 of Barbour Gymnasium, and

activity are urged to apply at once.

Ann Arbor weather has interfered
with a number of activities this se-
