Band To Begin
Concert Series
In Jilliamston
Program To Feature
New Gallois Suite
Starting out by presenting a
program in Williamston Thurs-
day, the University Concert Band
will give a series of concerts in
cities throughout Michigan during
February and March.
Pontiac will hear the group
Thursday, Feb. 25; Saginaw, the
following Tuesday, March 4; and
Battle Creek March 25.
Featured at all of the concerts
will be the suite "Italian Sketches"
by Gallois, which was written ex-
pressly for band. The University
musicians will be playing from
the manuscript copy of the com-
position. Another highlight will
be the overture from the opera
"La Scala Di Seta" by Rossini.
Max Steiner's "Symphony Mo-
derne," a work written as back-
ground music for the motion pic-
ture "Four Wives" will be offered.
Paul Wallace, a student in the
music school, will play a euphon-
ium solo in the Pontiac program.
Wallace attended high school in
Pontiac, where he received train-
ing from Dale C. Harris. Harris

high school band conductors in
the nation, according to William

Frieze Organ
Acclaimed as
One of Finest
One of the largest, most effec-
tive instruments of its kind is
the Frieze Memorial Organ in
Hill Auditorium, according to Dr.
Palmer Christian, Professor of
"In size of specification, the Hill
Auditorium organ stands among
the large instruments of the day,"
he said, "and because of the near-
ideal organ chamber, the imposing
range of effects possible from the
instrument are subject to more
sensitive presentation, probably,
than is the case in any other con-
cert hall in America."
Originally built by Roosevelt,
the finest American builder of the
time, the organ was purchased for
the University by the University
Musical Society and installed in
University Hall in 1894 following
the close of the Chicago World's
Fair, where it had been on dis-
play. It was named in honor of
Henry Simmons Frieze, former
professor of Latin and first presi-
dent of the society when it was
organized in 1879.
Upon completion of Hill Audi-
torium, the instrument was moved
from University Hall and rebuilt
to some extent. It was dedicated
at the 1928 May Festival.
It now consists of 120 sets of
pipes, six of them were used from
the instrument formerly in the
same location. They embrace a
very wide range of tone color and
of dynamics. The front pipes,
used in the previous organ as
"speaking pipes," are now entirely

More Summer
Job Openings
Are Reported
Increased opportunities for stu-
dents to work in summer camps
and resort hotels were reported
yesterday by Mrs. Juanita Mantle,
in charge of summer placement
for the Bureau of Appointments
and Occupational Information.
A meeting will be held at 4:15
p.m. Tuesday, in Rm. 205 Mason
Hall to discuss these job oppor-
tunities and to register all those
interested in summer jobs. Dr.
T. Luther Purdom, director of the
Bureau, will be in charge.
Among the jobs for which stu-
dents are wanted are: Counselors
in children's camps, lifeguards,
camp directors and assistants,
waiters, waitresses and bellboys in
resort hotels, and camp cooks.
"Many of these jobs require no
experience," she said.
Mrs. Mantle urged all students
with some special skill to consult
the Bureau, because requests come
from employers frequently offer-
ing opportunities for those with
special abilities. Announcements
of openings are expected to in-
crease in number during the next
few months, she said.
"Openings for these positions
are widely scattered throughout
the country, including the New
England states, the Rocky Moun-
tain states, and the Gulf Coast,"
she remarked, "but the majority
come from camps in northern
Michigan and other nearby areas."
"Pay varies widely, depending
on the type of job, the particular
organization, and the attitude of
its officials toward summer work-
ers," she stated.

Choir Needs
Tenor Voices,
Director Says
Tenor voices are needed in the
University Choir, Prof. Harvin Van
Deursen, director, announced yes-
With a present membership of
over 100, the Choir is a one-hour
credit course in the School of
Music. However, students need
not be enrolled in the music school
or in other music courses. Anyone
who wishes to participate in vo-
cal ensemble without taking the
course for credit will be admitted,
Prof. Van Deursen said.
The Choir has the unique dis-
tinction of being the only organ-
ized voice group on campus as
well as in Ann Arbor that does not
require an audition prerequisite to
membership. Although special per-
formances are by selected mem-
bers of the group, Prof. Van Deur-
sen urged all those interested,
whether for credit or not, to join
the Choir. Rehearsals are held in
Haven Hall, Mondays and Wed-
nesdays, 4 to 5:30 p.m.
Prints on Display
Forty modern prints will be on
display in the West Gallery of
