Prof. Howard Y. McClusky lists
two reasons for choosing educa-
tional psychology and adult edu-
cation as his field.
His greatest interest'is people,
and he sort of "drifted into the
field as my whole family-moth-
er, father, brother, brother-in-law,
and uncle-all taught."
A graduate of Park College,
Prof. McClusky took his PhD at
the University of Chicago. Unlike
most people, he went from a bach-
elor's degree to a doctorate, and
sidetracked an M.A. He came
to the University in 1924.
Prof. McCluskey says he is oc-
casionally "kidded" about the way
he conducts his classes. Foregoing
any tendencies toward the austere
professor type, Prof. McClusky
makes it a practice to welcome
latecomers at the door with such
greetings as "we're so glad to have
you join us" or "do come in." Con-
tinual absentees who finally show
up for class are often told that a
memorial service complete with
wreath for their chair had been
If a student continually cuts,
Prof. McClusky asks other mem-
bers of the class to "remember
me to him" when they bump into
him on campus.
Another trick of Prof. McClus-
ky's involves the psychological
process known as "suggestion". A
ficticious name such as "Percival
Winklebottom" is added to the
roll. Percival epitomizes the way-
ward student, the student who al-
ways meant to come to class but
aever quite got t h e r e, andi
the student who has a long
list of alibis for his misdeeds.
"Percival never arrives," Prof. Mc-
Clusky said. "But he comes in
Prof. McClusky does a lot of
community work in connection
with adult education. He says his
professional interests have "two
foci-mental hygiene of adolescence
and the problem of community

Worked for Youth
He served as associate director
of. the American Youth Commis-
sion in Washington during 1940-
41, and worked with the Commis-
sion after his return in the fall
of '41 by shuttling between Ann
Arbor and Washington.

children, aged five, eight and 12.

The drive to create a badly
needed library at the Philippine
university is particularly appropri-
ate at this time, according to Prof.

New Music Will Be

George Cavender, publicity
manager, pointed out yesterday
that members of the University
bands have unusual opportunities
to play new music.
He cited as an example the fact
that the group will be the first
university band to play a new
Vernon Malone arrangement of
the first movement of Cesar
Frank's "Symphopy in D Minor."
Malone is conductor of public
school and municipal bands in
"It has not been customary for
bands to perform such large works
as symphonies or even move-
ments from them," Cavender said,
"but with the' advent of men like
Malone and the development of
the concert band to a high degree
of proficiency, they are now at-
tempting it." Another new ar-
rangement by Malone of the
Third Movement, "Grape Festi-
val," of Gallois' "Italian Sketches"
will be included in the program.
Russell Howland, wind instru-
ment instructor in music school,
has transcribed for the band se-
lections from "Parsifal" by Wag-
ner. Howland is a nationally-
known authority on reed instru-
ments and has done several similar
transcriptions, Cavender said. De
Falla's "Ritual Fire Dance" has
been arranged by George Roach,
former student and alumnus of the
University bands. A former busi-
ness manager of the band, Don
Chown, who now heads the script
writers department for WJR, has
made an arrangement of "Huckle-
berry Finn" by Ferde Groff.
