Pinafore Will Dock on
Campus for Three Days

If Gilbert and Sullivan were
still alive, chances are they'd be
right on deck keeping an eye on
their investment when "HMS
Pinafore" sparkles across the
stage of Pattengill Auditorium be-
ginning at 8:00 p.m. tomorrow for
a three day engagement.

The even s are sponsored by the
University ixtension Service and
the Michigan State Federation of
Women's Clubs in connection
with the 16th annual Adult Edu-
cation Institute being held on

The musical program will in-

versity Hall all this week is prob-
ably one of the most pirated plays
in all stage history.
Several Versions Given
Before there were such nuis-
ances as copyright laws no less
than eight different companies
were presenting their versions of
"Pinafore" in this country at the
same time. In 1878 the authors
came over to straighten things up,
and their official "Pinafore"
opened with Sullivan conducting
and Gilbert singing in the sailor
chorus to keep an eye on the
stage business.
While tomorrow's Pinafore
won't have Sullivan himself on the
podium, it will feature the able
conducting of Rex Wilder, grad-
uate student in music who with
Prof. Harry Allen will be out to
beat their brilliant direction of the
"Mikado" earlier in the year.
All-Student Production
Wilder will have plenty to work
with in the line of musical talent.
Besides directing the special 20-
piece orchestra he'll direct the
eight leads and a massed chorus
of over 40 voices. The all-student
cast has been in almost cqntinuous
rehearsal this week in preparation
for the opening night. Costumes
have arrived, and dress rehearsal
is planned for today.
The cast was overwhelmed by
the elegance of the costumes, ac-
cording to Jim Schneider, public-
ity chairman. The only question-
able note raised by the sponsors
of the Gilbert and Sullivan So-
ciety was the extreme sheerness
of some of the women's costumes,
but this problem was solved by
dimming some of the stage light.
Ticket sales continue today
through Saturday in the booth
outside Rm. 2, University Hall,
and will also be available at the
Pattengill Box office before each

Opera Position
Still Unfilled
council Searching
For Finance Head
Students to petition for the
position of the 1948 Union Opera
are still badly needed, Dave Ley-
shon, Executive Council chair-
man announced yesterday.
Leyshon termed "very encour-
aging" the number of men who
have visited the Student Offices
of the Union between 2 and 5 p.m.
to submit petitions for the Opera
and make appointments for in-
"Competition for all perman..
ent jobs on the administration,
production and financial staffs is
still wide open, and we will con-
tinue to take petitions through
Friday," he said.
Leyshon emphasized the valu-
able financial experience to be
derived from working on the bud-
get, appropriation and various
other financial phases of the 1943
Union Opera. "I'll be glad to talk
over the possibilities with every
interested student," he said.

To Be presented
A student nurse will interview

Political Club Alphabet
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last in a series of articles on student political
FILLING OUT THE LIST of politically active campus clubs are
those which back various programs regardless of the candidates sup-
porting them.
Largest of these non-partisan groups is the local American
Veterans' Committee. Headed by Dave Babson, 175 AVC members
are conducting a campaign to "Make every Vet a voter."
"AVC is concentrating on getting the veterans registered to vote,"
Babson said, "and is trying to work more independently of other or-
ganizations. If any group should ask us to support their particular
candidate, we'll have to refuse. The only points we're allowed to de-
clare ourselves on are specific issues."
close cooperation with the NAACP, will only support those candidates
who actively fight discrimination, rather than advocating more racial
tolerance, according to Miriam Levy, IRA leader.
"We're supporting FEPC, anti-poll tax legislation and Tru-
man's Civil Rights proposal," Miss Levy, a Wallace-Backer, de-
clared. "We're also trying to put the Michigan Diggs Act into
force, and we oppose the Callahan Bill."
The 150-member IRA is now concentrating on a civic program to
fight discrimination. Last summer the group organized a large anti-
lynch rally, and picketed barber shops which had shown racial d:is-
crimination in serving Negroes, Miss Levy said.
"We've decided to do no more picketing at present," she said,
"while we try to find a more rational method to do away with dis-
crimination. We still don't denounce picketing as a final measure."

ANOTHER LOCAL DIVISION of a national club is the United
World Federalists, a non-partisan group whose 85 members are di-
rected by Harry Blackwell.
The organization concerns itself with only those issues which
will influence the prospect of future world government. For this
reason, the group is urging the passage of House Resolution No,
59, Which will expedite a change to a stronger United Nations,
according to Blackwell
UWF favors ERP, so long as there are no political strings at-
tached to the aid, Blackwell said. "What is most necessary is world
law and justice, which can be achieved through world government."

Art School Instructor Paints
Campus Scene, Wins $100


,4/k/,4r/.. Smokers Report

A living rebuttal to the old quip
"... those who don't know, teach,"'
artist Richard Wilt, architectural
school instructor, is steadily gain-
ing his place in the world of art.
Having entered the competition
recently sponsored by the Indiana'
State Teacher's College, Indiana,
Pa., Wilt was awarded a $100 pur-
chase prize for his painting "Pep
Rally," an interpretation of cam-
pus pre-game enthusiasm.
The winning way is not a new
thing to Wilt. His paintings have
taken prizes in exhibitions spon-
sored by the Associated Artists of
Pittsburgh, American Contempo-
rary Artists, and Allied Artists of
West Virginia.
Although Wilt finds that his'
teaching duties in architectural
design, drawing and water color-
ing take much of his time, a size-
able stack of finished canvasses
completed "since Christmas" in-
dicate he has spent idle hours.
Moody Backgrounds
Wilt's Willow Village apartment
at 1721 Darby Court is filled with
examples of his almost haunting
style. Wilt terms his wark as
"semi-abstractionism" because his
character, peering from vague
mood-setting backgrounds, have
sharply etched faces.
"Generals' Victory Dance," said
Wilt, is the celebration of the gen-
erals on the dawn of victory, danc-
ing against a background of the
shambles of war. Wilt implies its
satirical theme when he asks,
"What right have generals to
claim victory on their own mer-
He turned to another painting
which he calls "College Humor."
"That kid selling the Gargoyle,"
he said, "he has a nice open face!
but is the standard type - you
know, the typical campus funny-
man. And the girl behind him
with the new look-her pretty face

is a dull grey because she is the
obvious type-no depth."
Strong Social Implications
Strong social implications run
through most of Wilt's art. His
paintings depict people from chil-
dren to the aged, with the charac-
ter of each revealed by the lines
and color of his face.
Asked to interpret other pic-
tures, Wilt declined with, "Artists
shouldn't do that. What the ob-
server reads into the picture -
that's what it means. There isn't
any right or wrong."
The prize winning "Pep Rally"
will go into a memorial Council of
Indiana State Teacher's College,
Wilt said.
Wilt was graduated from Car-
negie Institute of Technology, in
fine arts. He taught art for one
year at the University of West Vir-
ginia before coming here last Sep-
