Religion and Labor
Group To Be Topic

The National Religion and Labor
Foundation will be discussed by its
founder and head, Dr. Willard Up-
haus, at noon EWT (11 a. m. CWT)
today at Lane Hall.
Ministers and divinity students,
under this program, join the labor
unions in their communities and plan
youth conferences, radio broadcasts,
suppers and discussions to better
understanding between these groups.
"At the beginning there may be a
bit of tenseness and.misgiving, but as
the fellowship deepens one finds a
frank and sincere meeting of minds
in search of truth and of ways to
translate ideals of justice into the
community. Labor finds in vital re-
ligion a regenerating influence and
religion finds in labor a moral en-
ergy and a practical framework for
implementing social ideals," Dr. Up-
haus has stated.
The public is invited.

*

*.

A new musical organization, "Three
Dukes and a Duchess", student quar-
tet organized a few months ago, will
give its first campus performance at
the Union dance today.
Brainchild of grad student Ray
Buntaine, the quartet originally star-
ted out as a trio, "The Cavaliers",
and sang at the Glee Club dance sev-
eral weeks ago. After serenading
Alpha Chi Omega sorority with the
Glee Clubone evening, the boys, Phil
Steding, Charlie Gans and Buntaine,
heard Pat duPont, former vocalist
with Bill Sawyer's orchestra, recipro-
cate with "Night and Day". Then
and there the trio decided that she
would be a fine addition to the group
and immediately became a quartet,
changing their name to "Three
Dukes .and a Duchess".
Miss duPont, who sang as a soloist
with several Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti
churches, has a bi-weekly radio pro-
gram over local Station WPAG.
Steding, first tenor and a freshman
in the Engine School, comes from a
family of successful singers. On his
own part, Phil had the leading role
in an all-school musical at Bronx-

ville High, N.Y., and in three years
at Cooley High, Detroit, he sang in
the choir, a vocal ensemble and a
double quartet. Steding is now Vice-
President of the Varsity Glee Club.
Second tenor Gans, who sang and
acted with Carole Landis in USO
Camp Shows as a soldier in the Army
Special Services, was a member of a
quartet that took national honors at
Atlantic City. During his years in
Uniontown, Pa. Senior High School
he sang leading roles in four oper-
ettas.
As an undergrad here, Buntaine,
who arranges the music for the quar-
tet, organized and directed the Inter-
cooperative Choir.
