Revised Music
Is Ann ouneed
Changes in the curriculum of the
School of Music to conform with a
revision of fee payments and the
policy of "more instruction at less
cost to the student" approved by the
Board of Regents at their last meet-
ing, were announced yesterday by Dr.
Earl V. Moore, director.
"Lower" and "upper" divisions will
be established, beginning with the
fall term. The "lower" division, con-
sisting of two years of required study,
will constitute an "explanatory per-
iod" for the student. At the end of
this time he may go into the "upper",
or specialized, division to work
toward a -degree in piano, voice,
strings, organ, theory-composition,'
music iteryture or music education.
Required Sequence Given
Piano instruction and courses n
basic musicianship, music literature,
applied music, English and another
non-music subject will be required
in the "lower division,' in sequences
designed to give the student maxi-
mum educational values. In the
credit for applied music the student
may continue instruction in voice
or the instrument on which he was
admitted to the School of Music, or
he may "explore" a new instrument.
This arrangement is the result of
several year's study on the problem
of providing music education in a
University background, Dr. Moore
said. Another of the several advan-
tages is that the "lower" divisions
will provide opportunity for stud-
ents with varying proficienciesuat
the time of admission, or with un-
certainties as to their future field of
specialization, to adjust themselves
to professional standards of train-
ing, and to observe at first hand the
requirements for meeting competi-
tion in public performance, radio or]
teaching of music.
Fee Revision Told]
The revision of fee payments
passed by the Regents provides for1
a single "flat charge" of $120 each;
term for Michigan residents and $180]
for non-residents, which will pay
for all required instruction in ap-E
plied music and practice facilities, in;
addition to the usual University tui-
A revised catalogue giving full in-
formation concerning the new cur-c

War Council, Union Staff members
and students who have volunteered
to meet at 3:45 today in front of the

and fun.
The campus has been divided into
nine zones. Two War Council mem-
bers, one Union staff man, and one
'47 Corps captain will act as foremen
in each zone. Each foreman will bring
ten workers which will make the
crew total 396 students.
A runner will report back to the
library as soon as his zone is im-
maculate, and prizes will be awarded
to the swiftest group. Cokes and
doughnuts will be furnished by the
University for all workers.
Implements and waste containers
will be supplied and a truck will
remove the debris as it is collected.
