Michigan Teachers
Must Solve Soldiers'
Problems, Myers Says
The objective of the 500,000 Mich-
igan soldiers who are now in uniform
is to get the war over and return
home, but their problem of readjust-
ment, Major W. J. Myers of the Se-
lective Service of Lansing, said at a
meeting of the Schoolmasters' Club
held in the Union, is up to the edu-
cators of Michigan.
Major Myers pointed out that a
community organization program is
being planned to furnish returning
veterans with information that they
may want to know and the fields of
work which they may enter.
The GI Bill of Rights which has
been passed by the Senate and is now
in the House for consideration, he
said, would give those men at least
one year of schooling at the govern-
ment's expense. This, he stated, is
the only plan in the straight educa-
tion field that has been made thus
Victor F. Spathelf, co-ordinator of
War Activities at Wayne University,
stated that one of the difficulties will
be to determine what kind of prob-
lems these men and women will pre-
' The great majority of discharged
men, he pointed out, are returning
to schools they left and continuing
in the field of study they were in
before the war. Sympathetic con-
ciling has been the most outstanding
need, he said, of these returning from
the service.
Dr. Eugene B. Elliott of the .State
Department of Public Instruction,
said that vocational guidance,aca-
demic, personal and religious concil-
ing and general social activities will
be necessary, for the discharged serv-
icemen will be out of step with the
social life of our culture.
Before any more plans can be out-
lined for the future, Dr. Elliott said,
more data is needed to make a care-
ful analysis of what sort of educa-
tion is needed for returning men and
City Asks Return of
No .Parking Signs'
"No Parking Signs" are desperate-
ly needed by :the City of Ann Arbor.
Students who have walked off with
any city signs are asked to call the
City Engineer's office. The location
of the signs are all that the City
wants to -know.
No questions will be asked of those'
who can "tip off" the City as to the
location of the signs.'

Bode Claims T eachers Have
Chance To Determine Future

Salvatore Baccaloni, 300 pound
Metropolitan basso buffo, will open{
the fifty-first May Festival which,
will begin Thursday, May 4, and1
continue through Sunday, May 7, inl
Hill Auditorium.
Pitts Sanborn of the New York
World-Telegram has compared Mr.
Baccaloni with the great comic artist
Charles Gilbert. His voice and sense{
of comedy have made him one of the
outstanding operatic4 stars of today.
Mr. Baccaloni was born in Rome,
Italy, where he received his first
musical training as a chorister in the
Sistine Chapel Choir at the Vatican.
He sang with several companies in
Europe before making his operatic
debut in the United States in Decem-
ber, 1940, at the Metropolitan.
Helped by Toscanini
Arturo Toscanini encouraged Bac-
caloni in his interpretations of basso
buffo roles. Although very few roles
are written for basso buffos Baccaloni
has raised this operatic character to
its former position on the opera
Baccaloni will sing "La Calumnia"
from "Barber of Seville" by Rossini
Thursday night. This is one of the
famous basso roles which he has
recreated. He interprets his role of<
Dr. Bartolo as, "A comic character;
who is silly in his fatuous belief in his2
own charms."
Figure an Asset

an asset to his position in opera."A

his weight well, moving about grace-
fully with an active step. He doesn't
participate in many sports, but takes
long walks to keep himself in good


condition. Costume and scenic de-
signing are his special hobbies.
Among his other activities Baccaloni
was one -of the artists selling War
Bonds on the U.S. Treasury Hour.
Baccaloni's presentations have
evoked favorable comments from
noted music critics. Oscar Thompson
of the New York Sun has said of
him, "In Baccaloni, with his remark-
able talents as a comedian and singer,
the Metropolitan has made the hap-
piest discovery since Flagstad joined
the company."
