FIRST 'EXTRA' CONCERT:
Marian Anderson To Sing Tomorrow

Houselights will dim for the sea-
son's first Extra series concert at
8:30 p.m. tomorrow at Hill Au-
ditorium when Marian Anderson
makes the initial appearance in
her 14th national tour.
Miss Anderson, whose early
music training was financed by
the congregation of her church,
began her career in 1926 at a
guest appearance with the New
York Philharmonic.
* * *
FURTHER STUDIES in Amer-
ica and Europe followed. Creating

no sensation on the continent, she
toured Scandinavian countries
where her voice brought praise
from Sibelius and Stravinsky.
Returning to Paris, she was
discovered by Sol Hurok, who
rushed the contralto back to
American audiences. She gave
her first U. S. concert in 1935.
Since then, the full-voiced Miss
Anderson has displayed her tal-
ents on 715 concerts, numerous
recordings and special appear-
ances before American and Brit-
ish heads of state.

FIVE-TIME WINNER of na-
tional newspapers' award as "Ra-
dio's foremost women singer,"
Miss Anderson has received three
honorary music doctorates among
the tributes to her vocal merit.
Four songs, representing the
contralto's well - liked repertoire
of Negro spirituals, will be in to-
morrow's program. A very limited
number of tickets for Miss An-
derson's concent are available in
the Choral Union offices in Bur-
ton Memorial Tower.

'Man-on-the-Street' Comes to Campus

By JIM BROWN
The campus now has its own
"man-on-the-street" program.
The show, originated by Ray
Okonski, '49E, and Sheldon Gates,
:50E, was first recorded at an ex-
change listening party held in the
Stockwell lounge last Saturday.
It consisted of two or three min-
ute interviews of various couples
at the party.
THESE INTERVIEWS were
later compiled into two 15 minute
programs which were rebroadcast
over the West Quad radio stations
in Chicago, Michigan and Allen-
Rumsey Houses.
Typical questions asked by

master-of-ceremonies Ok.o n -
ski included student opinions
on the banning of the political
discussions on the diag and the
possibility of having men and
women eating together in the
dorms.
'he program proved to be such
a success with the couples at the
party that there were always huge
crowds flocking around the tape
recorder.
SEVERAL PEOPLE expressed
the desire that the interviews be-
come a regular institution at such
parties. nsri
Future plans call for similar

I

programs to be recorded at dances,
football games and along the diag.
If the political discussions in
front of the library should be ap-
proved again, recordings of these
debates will be made.
ANOTHER innovation planned
by Okonski is the recording of
play-by-play descriptions of West
Quad football games and later re-
broadcasting them over the West
Quad stations.
UWF To Hold
Debate Tonight
Just how much power a world
federation should have at its be-
ginning will be debated at the
United World Federalist meeting
at 7:30 p.m. today in the Hussey
Room of the League.
Upholding the minimalist _
relatively less power-point of
view is Samuel Dudley, vice-presi-
dent of the local chapter and for-
mer West Virginia UWF executive.
Opposing Dudley with the maxi-
malist-relatively more power po-
sition-is Gilles Corcos, member
of the UWF National Executive
Council, and former chairman of
the UWF international commit-
tee.

WRAP FOR SECRETARY-A solicitous undersecretary, Robert P.
Lovett, places Secretary of State George C. Marshall's coat over
the diplomat's shoulders as he stands in the rain at Washington.
He is talking to the press before boarding the Independence for
flight back to Paris for resumption of negotiations for world peace.

Cheered on by hundreds of well-
wishing students, a nine-room
house sailed down S. State Street
yesterday.
Casting off from its former an--1
chorage on Thompson Street, the
house headed down E. William to1
State and later to its destined rest-
ing place off S. Main.
** *
SEVERAL unfortunate motor-1
ists who had parked their carsl
along State returned later to findt
them pushed up over the curb out 1
of the path of the house.
Upon reaching the Union,
the house ran into a serious ob-
stacle in the forms of the low
hanging warning light but this

was eliminated with the help of
a derrick.
