Choral Series
Presenting the seventh concert
in the current Choral Union series,
Myra Hess, distinguished English
pianist will appear at 8:30 p.m.
today on the stage of Hill Audi-
A veteran performer in this
country, Miss Hess made her
American debut in New York in
1922, and has made annual con-
cert tours here every year except
during the war.
Applauded by many critics as a
true musician and not a mere vir-
tuoso, she returned to the United
States last year aftera sevh year
absence, during which timte she
gave five concerts a week without
a break, even during the worst air
Her courage and artistry were
both awarded in 1945 when the
King conferred on her the honor
of Dame Commander of the Brit-
ish Empire and the Royal Phil-
harmonic Society awarded her the
Gold Medal.
Born in England, she made her
debut at an orchestral concert
with Sir Thomas Beecham, which
aroused such enthusiasm that she
was at once engaged by leading
orchestras. Since then her career
has been a succession of triumphs.
Her program today will include
the following numbers: Adagio in
G major and Toccata in D major,
Bach; Drei Klavierstucke, Schu-
bert; Sonata, Op. 111, Beethoven;
and Albumblatter (from Bunte
Blatter, Op. 99) and Carnaval, Op.

Music Society Calls
For Tryouts Feb. 9
"H.M.S. Pinafore" acclaimed by
many as the greatest of all light
operas will be the next offering of
the Gilbert and Sullivan Society,
it was announced at a meeting of
the Society Thursday night.
The regular Society members,
now veterans in the musical com-
edy field by virtue of their success-
ful pre-Christmas production of
"The Mikado," were joined at the
meeting by many interested stu-
"Pinafore" was selected as the
next Society production on the
basis of student votes taken at the
time of "The Mikado," Jim
Schneider, Society publicity direc-
tor, announced. It will be present-
ed for a four night stand begin-
ning Wednesday. May 12.

Dave Dutcher, co-chairman of the
Legislature committee pointed out.
The program will be of special
benefit to freshmen and transfer
students in helping to familiarize
them with the choice of courses
available. Other students will be
given advice in choosing elective

For Factual Information
Course advice, however, will be
limited to factual information,
and actual choice will be left to
the student, Dutcher explained.
No recommendation of professors
will be offered in the program.
Student experts for the program
will be drawn mainly from the
honorary societies. Only students
with at least a "B" average in
their field of concentration, and
with wide experience in their
fields will be eligible.
If the program meets success in
the literary college, it will be ex-
panded to other schools in the
University, Dutcher said.
Gaertner Says
Press Faces
Increased Job
The American press must pre-
sent a fair picture of the news
if the people are to be able to
form sound judgments to meet
the challenges and storms of the
atomic future, Fred M. Gaertner,
Jr., managing editor of the De-
troit News, said yesterday.
Speaking in the current series of
lectures being presented by the
journalism department Gaertner
urged publishers and editors not
to forget their responsibility to
the 140 million people in the
country merely because of the
magnitude of their enterprises.
Finest Education
Addressing the student p'art of
his audience, Gaertner said that
they had been trained to think
things out and to "keep an open
mind." He pointed out that they
were receiving the finest educa-
tion in the world, but he also
warned them that they were com-
ing out into the world at a time
when "great questions, needing
detailed information, will meet
the people."
At the same time, he cautioned
against hasty judgments about
new social and economic issues,
especially since, he said, 20 per-
cent of the people still look to the
editorial pages of their newspa-
pers before they form an opinion
on controversial issues. "We have
learned that the radical idea of
today is the conservative idea of
tomorrow',' he added, pointing to
such issues as social security,
collective bargaining and TVA.
Inexpensive Newspapers
Speaking earlier in the day to
a group of journalism students,
Gaertner advised those who were
discontented with the newspapers
of today, to wait a little longer
and that then they would be able
to publish their own papers on
slightly more than a shoestring.
With the new photoengraving
process newspapers are now us-
ing, he said, you can have the in-
gredients for your paper of the
future with just a small invest-

Stassen Tells
Senators of
Inside Prof it
Candidate Says
Earnings 'Hiuge
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON. Jan. 9-Harold
E. Stassen told Senators that gov-
ernment "insiders" have made
about $4,000,000 profits in post-
war commodity trading.
He declined to name any traders
who have not been identified al-
ready, saying he Would leave it to
the Senators to bring out "the ex-
act evidence."
Appearing before a Senate Ap-
propriations Subcommittee inves-
tigating the effects of speculation
on prices, the Republican presi-
dential aspirant also declared that
Edwin W. Pauley and Brig. Gen.
Wallace H. Graham have not told
the whole truth about their trad-
ing transactions.
Stassen contended that Pauley,
a special assistant to the secretary
of the army, made a profit of
about $1,000,000 in the market
since the war, "moving in and out
with never a loss."
He also said that Graham, who
is President Truman's personal
physician, did not lose money in
the market, although his profit
did not compare with Pauley's.
Graham was waiting to testify'
about his market activities when
the committee adjourned to per-
mit Stassen to fill a speaking en-
gagement in Missouri.
Davies Mentioned
The only other trader men-
tioned by Stassen was Ralph K.
Davies, former deputy petroleum
administrator for war, whose
name recently appeared on a list
of traders. Stassen said Davies'
activities were similar to Pauley's.
The witness, a former Minne-
sota governor, said that he and his
staff have uncovered the names of
about 11 "insiders" who-he as-
serted-have made personal prof-
its through the use of official in-

gress?"rasked Senator O'Mahoney

Initiation Held
By Journalists
Three professional newsmen
and fourteen undergraduates were
initiated last night into Sigma
Delta Chi, professional journalism
fraternity, in ceremonies at the
Professional pledges initiated
were Arthur Brandon, director of
the University news service, Ray
Baker, of the Ann Arbor News and
Dean Baker, instructor in the
journalism department.
The undergraduate list included
Ben Zwerling, Archie Parsons,
Jack Martin, Fred Schott, Harold
Jackson, Albert Mathieson, War-
ren Lebonah, Robert LaPlante,
Russell Clanahan, Don Thomas,

Warner and Kenneth Peterson.
The initiation was followed by
a dinner during which Fred M.

the Detroit News, spoke briefly on
prospects in newspaper work.

'U' Ranks Seventh
In Vet Enrollment
Michigan ranks seventh in the
nation in number of veterans en-
rolled with 11,735, according to a
national survey of 716 four-year
institutions which also revealed
that the wave of postwar GI en-
rollment has reached its peak.
Results of the survey conducted
by Dr. Raymond Walters, presi-
dent of the University of Cincin-
nati, showed that in 1947, veter-
ans constituted 52 per cent of to-

"Will the return of Pete Elliott
to the starting line-up supply the
spark the Wolverines need?" has
been a topic of discussion all week
long among Michigan enthusiasts.
They feel that Elliott, who bucket-
ed five points in his initial cage
appearance this season against
Toledo last Saturday, was the man
most missed in the Wolverines'
first six battles.
The red-headed Elliott, last
,year's captain and guard, is re-
garded as one of the top defen-
sive men in the league.
But the main defensive as-
signment of the evening will
fall to Bill Roberts, the 6-foot
7-inch Maize and Blue center.
His task will be to stop Jim Mc-
Intyre, the Gopher pivot man
and chief scoring threat.
McIntyre, three inches taller
than Roberts, has averaged 18.1
points in his team's eight games
this year. He's the tallest player
ever to represent the Gophers and
finished second in the Big Nine in-
dividual scoring race last winter.

FBI Could Become Gestapo
If Loyalty Power Were Used



If the Federal Bureau of Inves-
tigation uses all the powers
granted to it under the govern-
ment's loyalty progran it may
tend to become similar .in scope
and power to the Gestapo under
' Himmler, H. L. Bretton of the pol-
itical science department said
Bretton, a former member of
the 0SS in Germany, said that
the powers to collect data on fed-
eral employes by undisclosed
means and to dismiss employes
of the government without con-
fronting them with their accusers
held great potential danger for
the exercise of civil liberties.
Will Take Advantage
The FBI may take advantage at
some time of the extensive pow-
ers and the ability to use illegal
means to get information that
have been granted to it under
this system, he said.
"The Gestapo under Himmler
was so successful," Bretton said,
"because there were no legal re-
straints on it and it had an un-
limited scope. The principle dif-
ference between the Gestapo and
the FBI operating under its new
powers is in the assumed motives
of J. Edgar Hoover."
Successful Job=
Bretton stressed that he was
not casting aspersions on the ac-
tivities of J. Edgar Hoover or the
FBI in the field of law enforce-
ment where, he said, "they are
doing a successful job."
Bretton noted that if J. Edgar
Hoover were to resign or if a man
were to become president who
had a stricter construction of the
term disloyalty," the powers
granted to the FBI might turn it
into an agency similar to the
force in a police state.
"There is no public check on the
methods used by the FBI in se-
curing information about govern-

ERP Attacked
As Committee
Senator George Hits
Marshall's Statement
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Jan. 9-Sena-
tor Vandenberg (R. - Mich.)
warned the state department to-
day that it must make its plan for
handling the European recovery
program more businesslike "or
you are sunk without a trace"
If it is to succeed, the plan must
gain the confidence of the Ameri-
can people, said the Michigan Re-
publican, chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee.
"A new element of business
operation" must be infused into
the multi-billion program, he
told Lewis W. Douglas, ambas-
sador to Great Britain and Se-
retary of State Marshall's chief
deputy on foreign aid.
He said that element is "lack-
ing in the bill you have sub-
Douglas, backing up Marshall's
opening testimony yesterday, had
just outlined to the committee six
principles which he said are fun-
damental to the success of the
plan. He said the secretary of
state and the President must have
control of and supervision over
the program.
Vandenberg cut in:
"I respectfully submit that
you missed one fundamental
specification that is overriding
-that is to create a system in
which the American people have
confidence or you are sunk
without a trace."
Then, near the close of the day's
session, Senator George (D.-Ga.)
critic ized Marshall for his testi-
mony yesterday,
George said Marshall in effect
told Congress: "Take the whole of
this program or none." The south-
ern Senator declared "that's the
technique of the propagandist"
and was "not a proper statement
to make to the legislative branch."
Douglas said he didn't think
Marshall meant take the $6,-
800,000,000 asked for the first
15 months operations, or none
at all.
George said he did not think
Marshall meant it the way it
sounded, but that newspapers in-
terpreted it that way.
