CLOCK-WATCHER:
Band' .Student Manager
Times Programs, Trips

By ALICE BRINKMPAN
Clock watching isn't appreciated
on most jobs, but it's just what the
boss ordered in the case of the
University bands' student man-
ager, Chuck Hills.
On the Rose Bowl trip he went
through the day, with one eye al-
ways on the clock to assign eating
schedules, rooms, make concert
appearances and catch the train
for the next place.
Between tours, the schedules
are mapped out in a planning ses-
sion with Conductor William D.
Revelli and Dean Walter B. Rea,
faculty business manager.
It takes a little higher math to
reduce programs and itineraries to
terms of hours and minutes and
make all the days balance at 24
Hours each, Hills thinks.
After the planning comes the
shouting. In line of press agent
duties Hills compiles publicity
and programs with the advice of
the conductor, helps dream up and
distribute posters and contacts
press and radio reporters with ad-
vance notices of up-coming band
activities.
Hills has literally grown up in
band work. When he started play-
ing the clarinet in the high school
band, he still had to wear knickers.
"Every time the band played I used
to hide behind the bass drummer

so no one would see them," he re-
calls.
Hills usually keeps abreast of
band activities, but he got left one
time. During his Air Corps career,

CHUCK HILLS

when he was in the 97th Air Corps
Band, he got impatient for action
and transferred to the cadet train-
ing program. Hills got stuck in
the states as an instructor while
the band went to Okinawa and the
Philippines.

AFL Disputes
Dismissal of
ath Teacher
Allegedly Fired for
His Political Views
MUSKEGON, March 20-(I)-
AFL leaders today demanded a
public hearing on the alleged po-
litical dismissal of Eugene J. How-
ard, a school teacher here for 21
years.
The Greater Muskegon AFL
Trades and Labor Council, in a
letter to the school board, said
it is "rather easy in these days
to arouse hysteria" over political
views of teachers. It urged the
school board to proceed with cau-
tion.
Angry Outsiders
However, Superintendent C. W.
Bemer said Howard's views had
made persons outside the school
system angry. They objected to
his continuing as a teacher.
These objections were voiced
during a special election to raise
school funds, Bemer added.
"Some persons felt that as long
as Mr. Howard was on the staff,
they would not care to support
any campaign for additional
school funds." Bemer contended.
Old Controversy
Howard was the center of a
controversy in 1934 when he was
demoted from high school history
teacher to a junior high school
mathematics instructor.
At that time, he was criticized
for discussing socialism before his
classes.
The board said it had no crit-
icism of Howard as a classroom
teacherhsince his transfer to the
junior high school.
Local IDemocrats
Spontsor IBanquet
The Young Democrats of the
University and the Washtenaw
County Democratic Committee will
co-sponsor a banquet at 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday at the Masonic Temple.

A former major in the WAC and a
prosecuting attorney at the Nur-
enberg trials. Miss Falvey will
speak on her experiences in Ger-
many.

The first card parties were
probably held over 1,100 years ago,
in Hindustan, according to the
World Book Encyclopedia. The
Italians were the first Europeans
to use playing cards, and the four
suits originated in France during
the 16th century.

NSA Reveals-
Plans or Tour
Of West Europe
"As much of Europe as you can
see in nine weeks" has been prom-
ised by the National Students As-
sociation for the USNSA spon-
sored tour of Western European
countries this summer.
Planned to give American stu-
dents "the broadest possible ac-
quaintance with the seaboard
countries at a reasonable price,"'
the tour has been specifically
planned to strike a balance be-
tween "that knowledge of places
which is essential to a cultivated
person and the opportunity to get
to know people, to study the in-
stitutions of the old world and
to discover what makes these
various countries tick," accord-
ing to an NSA release.
The tour includes study of fac-
tories and government in Eng-
land, work in English harvest
camps, a study of the Benelux
customs union in Brussels, and
will entail almost a full week stay,
at each of the following cities:
Paris, Tours, Caen and Grenoble
in France, and Amsterdam, Maas-
tricht, Tjalks and Rotterdam in
the Netherlands.
Present plans call for a depart-
ure from Montreal, June 18, with
a return to New York or Mon-
treal about Sept. 15.
Interested students should con-
tact Tom Walsh, chairman of the
Student Legislature NSA Commit-
tee as soon as possible for further
information and application
blanks.

I CAN BE HAD':
Bruin' Ribs MacArthur Fans

i

"Whither goeth thou America?"
asks the California Daily Bruin,"
student newspaper at the Uni-
versity of California at Los An-
geles.
Taking off on the policy of a
famous newspaper publisher, the
Bruin boomed thie candidacy for
the Presidency of one Field Mar-
shal Martin E. Beals (a UCLA
student) in a full page of stories
in a recent issue.
Bannered across the page in
bold type is the earthshaking
statement of the "fearless, daunt-
less, courageous, loyal Reals, "I
CAN BE HAD."
In a letter to the Bruin dated,
"Sand Simian, March 8," the
'publisher' of the' Bruin said,
"There has arisen in America a
spontaneous movement on the
part of the common people for

ican, Field Marshal Martin E.
Reals to the presidency.
"Our newspapers which have
always been close to the beating
heart of the free people of this
country cannot fail to bow to the
will of these patriotic Americans.
"To do otherwise would be a
dereliction of duty," the letter
ended.
A double column editorial ex-
horting the American people to
support Reals boomed, "This
PERILOUS HOUR when FOR-
EIGN IDEOLOGIES threaten our
AMERICAN institutions of FREE
ENTERPRISE, INDIVIDUALISM
and RED-BLOODEDNESS, the
Nation requires a strong man at
the helm of the SHIP OF STATE.
"This newspaper MUST endorse
this TIDAL WAVE. To do other-
wise would be a DERELICTION of
duty.
"WE CANNOT ALLOW, WE
MUST NOT ALLOW RUSSIAN
BOLSHEVISM TO DUMP CHEAP
CHINESE LABOR ON OUR FREE,
AMERICAN SHORES," the editor
concluded.
