Marian Anderson Calls Audiences
Here Best of Any College Town

Abandoned by Nazis

Arny Private Recalls Reporter's Days


Marian Anderson, the world's
greatest contralto, yesterday paid
tribute to An Arbor and Michigan
"AnnArbor is my favorite college
town to visit. Certainly nowhere else
have I been so warmly and generous-
ly received. I eagerly look forward to
my next opportunity to sing to the
University of Michigan students and
its faculty."
Sang in 11 Countries
Miss Anderson has sung in eleven
different countries, before the high-
est dignitaries of three continents
and in most major cities of the Unit-
ed States. To laud Ann Arbor so
highly was "the least bit of repay-
ment for your kindness."
When asked if her unparalleled
rendition of Negro spirituals were
popular abroad, Miss Anderson made.
several interesting comments.
"With no exceptions, I have been
asked in every foreign country to sing
several spirituals-some of which I
had not even heard."
Russians Want Spirituals
"It is interesting to note," she con-
tinues, "that when I sang in Lenin-
grad, not only was I allowed to sing
Negro spirituals in spite of the ban
which the Russians had on religious
music sung in concert halls, but
'amidst the applause requesting en-
cores at the end of the program one
robust Russian Army officer shouted
out from a back row, 'Deep River!'"
As for their place in the music of
our nation, she expressed the belief

nati, O., and Benjamin N. Quigg, Jr.,

The staff of the Review is usually
comprised of 20 to 30 people, but due

that, "TheNegro Spiritual is essen-
tially an American form of music,
which was profoundly influenced by
the African ancestry of the people
with whom they originated. To me
they are serious, and have a very
deep message to bring."
Praises Accompanist
Miss Anderson gave the highest
praise to her accompanist, diminu-
tive Franz Rupp. She related that
Franz was a celebrity in his own
right. Mr. Rupp for many years had
been "at the piano" for Fritz Kris-
ler, when he was touring Europe.
Further, Rupp was for quite some
time the accompanist for Emanuel
Freuman, the eminent 'cellist.

Zoology School
Enrollment Falls
The enrollment of Graduate stu-
dents in the Zoology Department this
year is the lowest the Department
has had since 1920.
"This drop in enrollment, how-
ever," states Dr. George R. LaRue,
chairman of the Department of Zoo-
logy, "is no worse than that in other
departments of the University."
In previous years the department
assistants have been composed chief-
ly of men. Women were rare. This
year there are only three male as-
sistants, while the rest are female.
All scheduled classes are being held
in spite of the man-power shortage.
In Zoology I there are 12 lab classes
and 13 quiz sections instead of the
usual 14 in each. In Comparative
Anatomy there are four instead of
five classes. Alll the classes are of
good or moderate size.

How would you like to spend a
New Year's Eve in New York City
with expenses paid to all the big
night spots?
This was the happy experience of
Pvt. Culver Jones, Company G, in
his capacity as reporter for the Tor-
onto Daily Star. As the only Ameri-
can reporter on the Canadian paper
which has one-tenth of all circula-
tion in Canada, he was assigned to
write a story on how New Yorkers
spent New Year's Eve.
Accompanies Dafoe
Another time Pvt. Jones was given
the assignment of accompanying Dr.
Roy Allen Dafoe of quintuplet fame
on his first trip to New York. After
a visit to Washington, where Dr.
Dafoe met the President, the party
was given a suite at the Ritz-Carlton.
They made the usual tourist's round
of visiting the Majestic, the Empire
State Building and the Statue of
Liberty, but Pvt. Jones thinks the

A gift of the Hoover Company, this
absorption unit is being constructed
for experimental purposes. It ar-
rived three weeks ago, dismantled by
the donors for shipping purposes,
and is now being set up in the de-
partment's laboratory by students
and the regular staff.
The unit, which has a capacity
Sequalto that of freezing two tons of
ice daily, occupies floor space 12 feet
square. Ordinarily such equipment
is made on a much larger scale for'
use in industrial plants. This unit,
which was donated to the University
by the Hoover research department,
had only 100 hours' use before being
sent here. Cornell University is the
other school which possesses an ex-
perimental unit of the two-ton size.
Seniors in chemical and metallur-
gical engineering classes will use it
for experiments in the thermody-

All students and servicemen with
at least one year of college French

ing of Le Cercle Francais, which will
be held at 8 p. m. today in the Michi-

Prof. Charles E. Koella, of the Ro-

most interesting event was a night
club party given by Walter Winchell
with Sally Rand as Dr. Dafoe's guest.
Winchell Is Different
Commenting on Walter Winchell
Pvt. Jones said "he was very differ-
ent from my expectations" and add-
ed that the famous columnist is
"very much of a family man and is
devoted to his family. He always
takes a back table in a night club
and .spends his time observing, but
rarely saying much himself."
Pvt. Jones' work on the Toronto
paper included the interviewing of
many famous people. One of his
interesting jobs was to accompany
Prince Chichibu, brother of the Em-
peror of Japan, on a trip across Can-
ada. The "prize assignment," how-
ever was during King George and
Queen Elizabeth's Royal Tour when
Pvt. Jones was with the party every
day for two or three months.
Interviews First Lady
He was often sent to America to
interview celebrities arriving on ships
from Europe. One of the famous
personages was Lady Astor, whom
Pvt. Jones thinks is "a very charm-
ing woman with a sparkling person-
ality." Other celebrities whom he

has interviewed include Lord Lo-!
thian, Rudy Vallee and Mrs. Roose-
velt. who, he says, is "very easy to
On another trip to America he
"got in the oldest Ford I could find,
rode across the continent to Cali-
fornia, up the West Coast and
stopped to do a series on Hollywood."'
It was on this visit that he spent an
afternoon on the set with Clark Ga-
ble. "one of the easiest people I've
ever interviewed."
Writes Features
In 1937 Pvt. Jones was sent to Eur-"
ope to do "trained seal work" or fea-
ture articles. He spent some time in
Germany. went all through central
Europe and stayed ten days at the
Vatican. His job was to write stories
so that readers could "read about
Europe as seen through the eyes of
someone like themselves." One of
these stories was on the subject of
the Pope's farm, equipped with mod-
ern American machinery, where he
raises most of his vegetables.
Pvt. Jones is now a senior in medi-
cal school, but he still thinks that
journalism is "the most exciting life
on earth." '

The quota for surgical dressings
from Washtenaw County has been so
increased that 100,000 dressings must
be completed and sent to receiving
centers by Jan. 1. Rita Hyman, '44,
chairman of the unit, urges that as
many workers as possible volunteer.
"Each and every dressing folded by
students will be a vital contribution
and will greatly relieve the effect of
the shortage of Red Cross workers
now being felt," Miss Hyman says.
Since the dressings are being han-
dled according to Army specifica-
tions, workers must comply by wear-
ing washable cotton blouses or cot-
ton smocks when working.
