Musi Student
To Appear at
Carnegie Hail
Bonnie Elms, '48 SM, will repre-
sent the State of Michigan in a
nationwide vocal contest spon-
sored by the Associated Concert
Bureau, Inc. of New York, which
will be held from January 17 to
April 24 in Carnegie Hall in New
York City.
Miss Elms, a student of Prof.
Arthur Hackett, was recently no-
tified of her first place ranking
in the statewide contest in which
she participated on November 23
at the Institute of Musical Art in
Detroit.
In a letter from Jack Petrill,
president of the Concert Bureau,
she was asked to appear Febru-
ary 7 in Carnegie Hall where she
iill sing three numbers of her own
choosing.
Lydia Pekarsky, a music school
senior, accompanied Miss Elms at
the piano in the state contest. A
mezzo-soprano, Miss Elms sang
"Amour, viens aider ma faiblesse"
from "Samson and Delilah"; "Il
Mio Bel Foco" by Marcello; and
"A Cyprian Woman" by Klein.
Miss Elms, who transferred to
the University in the fall of 1945
from. Hendrix College, Conway,
Arkansas, appeared last summer
as soloist at the Alpha Xi Delta
National Convention at Murray
Bay, Canada.
Locally, Miss Elms has soloed
in the Junior Girls Play, at the
Casbah and atthe Regent's Con-
vention this fall.

of the city betrayed none of the
political tension that screams in
all the newspapers. The citizens
continued systematically to their
work, their faces calmly set, con-
cerned with their own problems.,
The momentary tenseness of Sat-
urday night has worked itself out.
It is only here and there that you
encounter evidences of upset.
This noon the metro stopped
again-this time as a result of the
electrical strikes. Fortunately,
this still leaves the busses as a
means of transportation, and to-
night there are block-long lines on
all the corners, placidly waiting.
Quiet City
Demonstration is to be seen no-
where.- Thecity is quietly bearing
strikes which dominate most of the
strikes which dominate most of
public utilities. The government
seems to have profited by the ex-
perience of the metro strike of
last month, for army trucks were
to be seen this evening roaring
along the Boulevard Exterior
filled with civilian workers on
their way home.
There has been no mail deliv-
ery for a week, but the post of-
fices are still manned by a con-
siderable force of non-strikers.
Normal service promises to be re-
sumed in a day or two.
Sit-Down Strike
Tuesday morning . . . This
morning the papers were filled
with reports of the sit-down strike
by Raoul Calas and his Commu-*
nist companions in the National
Assembly. Censured for callingon
reservists to refuse to obey the
muster as police reinforcement,
he would not leave the Palais-
Bourbon.
"Humanite" called the Calas'
action a "battle against dictator-
ial attempts"; Figaro labeled it
"open insurrection."
Transportation was interrupted
again this morning on a suburban
subway line by the sabotage of
last night. A train had been de-
railed by vandals, and numerous
persons were seriously injured in
the overturn of three carl.
Howeyer, with this one excep-
tion, all other transportation in
the city ran normally, leaving the
announcement of "total stoppage"
by Humanite an exaggeration.

Investigation
Of Musie (zar
WASHTNGTON, Dec. 12-U(/P
The House Labor Committee to-
day asked the Justice Department
to determine whether James C.
Petrillo and his Americam Federa-
tion of Musicians (AFL) are sub-
ject to prosecution under the anti-
trust laws ofor "monopolistic prac-
tices."
Petrillo has ordered menb(rs of
the union to cease making record-
ings after Dec. 31. e also has a
standing ban a ainst pertorn-
ances by AEM 1m(b on Iele-
vision shows.!
Demands Prosecutions
In a bristling report, the House4
committee also demanded the
prosecution of any offenses under
the Lea Act; passed last year to
restrict the musician union's ac-
tivities, "or and other law."
(Petrillo himself opened the
way for a test of the Lea Act in
1946. The Government charged
him with attempting to compel
radio station WAAF at Chicago to
employ three persons not needed.
Federal Judge Walter C. La Buy
held the act unconstitutional, but
he was reversed by the Supreme
Court which remanded the case
back for trial. Petrillo pleaded
innocent, a month ago today.)
Five Proposals
The Committee also presented
five legislative recommendations.
It urged that the Taft-Hartley
labor law be amended so as to
forbid "monopolistic practices by
labor unions which are injurious
to the public interest." Also: That
it be made illegal for a union to
"license an employer to do busi-
ness that persons or firms put on
a union's unfair list be given the
right of redress in Federal court;
that unions be prohibited from
calling strikes or work stoppages
until after an affirmative vote by
a majority of the employes in a
plant or industry; and that safe-
guards be erected to prevent a un-
ion and employer from conspiring
to evade the Taft-Hartley law.

Redskins Take To Warpath
r T* 1- 'k

In rt gh for P
By BOB BYERLY
The reds are after us again. Not
Communists-Indians.
Some 1,500 members of the
Quapaw Indian tribe living near
Joplin, Missouri, are suing the
United States for $48,251,280 on a
deal which dates back to 1818.
The boys claim this is what we
owe them for 38,636,224 acres of
land once held by Quapaws in
southern Arkansas, southern Okla-
homa and western Mississippi.
' They arrived at this figure by
taking what they've received for
the land to date-$8,000 in cash,
some farm tools and livestock, and
the 96,000 acres they live on now
-and subtracting this from what+

Letace Payon

the land comes to at the standard
$1.25 per acre set up by the gov-
ernment in 1818.
The Quapaws, who have a
couple of Joplin lawyers backing
up their claim with the Indians
Claims Commission, seem to stand
a reasonable chance of getting at
least part of what they're asking
for. Congress has opened the way
for this type of claim by enacting
public law 726, which recently be-
came effective.
The Quapaws originally secured
claim to the land from Lewis and
Clark, but were moved later by
the government to a smaller tract
of land in Louisiana.

Buck suggested to her that one

"Sle looked around and
couldn't find one," Buck said,

"Naturally, I said they would be

Eisler is currently out on $20,-

tenced to one year in jail and a
$1,000 fine by Congress when he
refused to take an oath before
the House Un-American Activi-

called him the leader of subversive
Communistic activity in the Unit-

The University statement con-
