"There is no short cut to becom-
ing a capable performer," Curzon
says. "It involves years of work
and accumulated experience."
CURZON, considered one of the
reatest keyboard artists of the
time, has devoted approximately
36 of his 41 years to music.
The violin was Curzon's in-
strument when he began his
musical career at five. But he
switched to the piano perma-
nently at the age of six. "Not
only because it was my instru-
ment," he says, "but also be-
cause you can be alone with a
piano."
During his six years of study at
the Royal Academy of Music, Cur-
zon won not only scholarships but
all the prizes open to pianists, in-
cluding the McFarren Gold Medal.
AT SIXTEEN Curzon made his
debut at a Queen's Hall Prom-
enade concert under the ,baton of
the late Sir Henry Wood, his great
sponsor in early youth.
He became a sub-professor at
the Royal Academy, since he was
too young to be made a full-
fledged professor.
Curzon continued his studies at
Berlin and Paris. Beginning his
concert career in earnest, he ap-
peared with the leading orches-
tras of Europe in France, Ger-
mahny, Austria, Hungary, Italy,
Roumania, Czecho-Slovakia, Bul-
garia, Luxembourg and Holland.
His appearance in Ann Arbor
Saturday is a part of his first
American concert tour.
Tickets for the concert may be
purchased at Burton Tower in
the offices of the University Musi-
cal Society.
Clock Rins
uBut NotRiht
Students looking for the time on
the clock at the General Service
Building may find themselves late
for classes.
The clock is running, and has
been since last week, but it is only
on a test run to check the work-
ings and to set it so it will keep
time.
Right now the timepiece is five
minutes slow and won't be relia-
ble until the building opens next
month.

LANSING-(')--Floyd Fitzsim-
mons, Benton Harbor lobbyist and
3POrts promoter, lost another
round yesterday in his fight to
stay out of prison.
ihe State Supreme Court re,
used l to permit Fitzsirmons to
tppeal from. a lower court refusal
o suspend his graft conviction
sentence.
Judge John Simpson of Jackson
reviously had denied an appeal
)y Fitzsimmons for an easing or
;uspension of hisrsentence. The
3enton Harbor sports figure con-
ended that confinement might en-
langer his health
He was sentenced to serve from
uhree to four years in prison on
conviction of a charge of at-
tempting to bribe a state legislator.

If you did, your worries ended

ENDING ITS most active term
of office, the Legislature has pro-
vided many services to studentsI
in the past semester. From the
day the freshman comes to Mich-
igan until he leaves as a senior,
SL activities do much to make!
campus life easier for him.
For freshmen and sophomores,
the Legislature sponsored Stu-
dent Expert program provides
orientation week advice on

I(course content from seniors who
now the ropes. Acting as a sup-
plement to the academic coun-
sellors, the experts gave advice
to over a thousand new students
last fall.
Varsity coamittee talks with
Fritz Crisler last spring resulted
in the halving of the price of foot-
ball programs from fifty to 25
cents.
* * *r
SL ACTION taken when the
political speakers ban was inter-
preted as prohibiting discussions
on the Diag led to the establish-
ment of the area under the flag
pole as a place for free discussion
of any topic.
SL has unceasingly fought
the Political Speakers ban,

and is now planning a report to
the Regents on the lifting of the
restrictions. The Legislature has
backed every effort of campus
organizations to get the ban re-
moved.
When election time approached,
it was an SL sponsored voting
registration program that gave
over five hundred students a
chance to participate in elections
in their home states, by providing
information and forms for stu-
dents of voting age.
