and to U. S. Senators and Represen-
tatives from Michigan.
Commenting on the slow-down of
fundamental research during the
war, Prof. Williams pointed out that
"in about five years, industry will be
wanting new scientific ideas which
we have not yet developed."
Funds from Services
Most large-scale funds available
for research at present are from the
Army and Navy, he said, and "we
feel that a civilian commission, al-
lowing freedom of research and pub-
lication would be better."
Sponsoring this meeting are Sigma
Xi, the Association of University of
Michigan Scientists, the Research
Club, the Women's Research Club,
the American Association of Uni-
versity Professors, and faculty mem-
bers in the social sciences.

Americani FolkI
Sin er To Give
John Jacob Niles, American folk
,"inger, wilpresent a program of An-
glo-American madrigals, ballads and
folk songs at 8:30 p.m. Friday in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Niles' songs represent a collection
of century old music from England,
Scotland, Wales, and Ireland that
was handed down by oral transmis-
sion and brought to the United States
by immigrants from those countries.
Today the music still lives in the Ap-
palachian Mountains and in remote
corners of Kentucky, Virginia, and
other Southern states. Niles is a na-
tive of Kentucky.
The songs Nis will sing are divided
into three groups: folk songs, bal-
lads, and carols. The folk songs deal
with familiar everyday subjects. The
ballads are American versions of
English and Scottish ballads about
famous people of the 15th and 16th
centuries. Tlhe carols are old songs
dealing with domestic events in the
life of the Christ child.
Niles has traveled all over the Unit-
ed States and through foreign coun-
tries, singing these same ballads and
playing his dulcimers, ancient string
instruments that resemble over-sized
guitars and sound like zithers. He has
appeared before full dress audiences
in Paris, London, and The Hague, be-
fore scholars at Harvard and Ox-
ford, before socialites in Bar Har-
bor, and before ordinary audiences
which lie claims are his favorites.
