"Not many college bands are
able to do this without impairing
their playing."
In their role as a chorus, the
men sing regular four-part har-

mony-first and second bass, and
first and second tenor. During the
ime that the band acts as a
-zhorus, only a few members of the
band play. Their main job is to
keep the established rhythm.
The band members sang during
the half of the Michigan-Minne-
sota game, and also sang when
the Varsity Band appeared recent-
ly in Hill Auditorium.
Do they have to practice their
singing much?
"The men have to practice their
songs only two or three times,"
says Prof. Revelli. "After they
have studied so much instru-
mental music, they pick up vocals
very easily. The harmony just
comes natural' to most of them.
The trick lies in their versatility
and in their ability to sightread."
The band does a large amount
of sightreading during the year.
Through this training, the mem-
bers are able to perform such band
favorites as the "Washington Post
March" upon request, even though
some of the members may be play-
ing the piece for the first time.
Meier Urges
With Russia
The main problem in reaching
agreements with Russia in atomic'
energy control can be attributed
to the fact that we do not under-'
stand the Russians sociologically
and psychologically, according to
Dr. Richard L. Meier, newly elect-
ed executive director to the Fed-
eration of American Scientists.
Speaking before the Association
of University of Michigan Scien-
tists Monday, Dr. Meier advocated
the social psychological policy be-
ing administered by United Na-
tions delegate O orn in coing
to an understandinig with the Rus-
sians who differ from our way of
Information Exchange
We have been trying to increase1
the exchange of scientific inf or-
mation with Russia as a step in
this direction, Dr. Meier declared.
So far we have beenable to dis-
tribute only a few journals among
scientists in Russia.l
Dr. Meier urged a larger mem-
bership to the Federation of Amer-
ican Scientists as a measure to
promote a better understanding of
atomic energy control within our
own borders.
Four Months Lag
There s a four month lag in
Russian thought concerning
atomic energy that could be rem-
edied by holding conferences of
the United Nations Atomic Energy
Control Commission in Paris, Dr.
Meier said. Under the presentt
circumstances it takes too long2
for the Russians to consider pro-
posals and make decisions.1
Social Reactionst
Dr. Meer also discussed the va-c
rious projects throughout thec
country that are set up to study
the social reactions to atomic en-r
6rgy. Columbia University is pre-t
paring to cope with the social re-e
actions that would develop in thet
U. S. in the event that Russiaa
would succeed in an atomic bomb l

20 Thousand Tagged Yearly
By Ingenious Bird Banders

L UK DM A Y 0 R R I T E S -..Amid traditional pomp at the Guildhall, Sir Frederick Wells~
(second from right) succeeds Sir Bracewell Smith (second from left) as lord mayor of London.

Bird banders have figured out
all the best ways to "get the bird,"
according to Prof. George A. Sut-
ton of the University Museum
zoology department.
The main job of the bander
has always been to devise a trap
to catch the bird without injuring
or scaring him in any way, Prof.
Sutton said.
One device, installed in chim-
neys, is particularly effective on
the Chimney Swift. The bird can
enter his chimney home, but when
he attempts to leave he is trapped
and bundled down a chute onto a
laboratory table where his leg is

Another type of trap is a small
cage with a built-in drop door.
When the unsuspecting bird hops
in after the crumbs inside, he
lands on a trick threshold that
trips the dloor down.
Nets suspended in the air catch
a good quota of birds too, Prof.
Sutton said.
The "figure four," a box sup-
ported by a stick at one end, is
one of the simplest traps. The
bander just pulls a string and the
box drops on the bird.
A good bander, Prof. Sutton
said, will often catch 20,000 birds
in one year, even including a few
