MEDIEVAL MASQUE:
Yeoman of the Guard
Heralded by Royal March

By PAUL BRENTLINGER '
From old London town, the
"Yeoman of the Guard" will
march into Ann Arbor for a three
day stay this week.
To herald their arrival, guards-
men dressed in colorful medieval
costumes will treat the campus to
the spectacle of the changing of
Camp Experts
Discuss Job
Of Counselors
The problems of camp directors
and counselors were discussed yes-
terday at the annual meeting of
the Michigan Camping Associa-
tion.
With Cliff Drury of Camp Hayo-
Went-Ha acting as moderator,
"Selection and Training of Coun-
selors" was the subject of the
panel.
CHARACTER AND a genuine
liking for children are the most
essential qualities to examine in
an applicant for a counselor po-
sition, the directors felt.
Skill in camp lore and former
experience are tlken into ac-
count but are not absolutely es-
sential, according to most of the
administrators.
T. Luther Purdom, director of
the University Bureau of Appoint-
ments, outlined the services of his
office for the group. More than 1,-
400 students are expected to apply
for summer jobs through the Bu-
reau this year, and a large propor-
tion will want to work in camps.
COUNSELOR training courses
at the University were explained
by Earl Riskey, associate super-
visor in physical education. An un-
dergraduate and a graduate
course, each carrying two hours
credit, are offered the second se-
mester.

the royal guard. The steps of the
library will serve as a substitute
for the ramparts of the Tower' of
London, and the performance is
scheduled for 12:45 tomorrow.
ALL OF THIS pageantry will
serve to announce the fact that
the Gilbert and Sullivan Society's
production of "Yeoman of the
Guard" will have a gala premiere
at PattengillAuditorium on Tues-
day. The "beefeaters" of the
guard will continue to show their
prowess before local audiences on
Wednesday and Thursday.
"Yeoman of the Guard" was
first produced at London's Sa-
voy Theatre in 1888. Gilbert and
Sullivan considered it to be
their best work, although it was
written following one of the
great quarrels in which these
masters of musical satire so
often engaged.
"Yeomen" is the nearest thing
to grand opera which Gilbert and
Sullivan produced. At times its
music reaches great heights, and
the plot intertwines tragic and
comic themes. The Gilbert and
Sullivan touch of satire and hu-
mor is still present, however,
though this opera is generally se-
rious in nature.
THE LOCAL production of
"Yeoman" is directed by Prof.
Maynard Klein of the School of
Music with the assistance of
Tom Wilson and Donald Decker.
Prof. Klein will alternate with
Wilson as conductor of the 30-
piece orchestra which the opera
features. A chorus of 63 will pro-
vide for the 16 principals of the
cast.
"Yeomen of the Guard" rep-
resents the third offering of the,
Gilbert and Sullivan Society,
which was founded at the Uni-
versity late in 1946.

Church Census
Shows Decline
Students may not hesitate to
indicate the church of their choice
on religious preference cards, but
they often have little relationship
with that church.
Religious census figures for
1948-49 show that 23,048 ex-
pressed a specific religious pref-
erence. But church membership
itself dropped from 12,071 last
year to 10,476.

DEWITT BALDWIN, SRA pro-
gram director, in explaining the
situation, said, "College students
find themselves for the first time
without parental control, so they
l exercise a kind of declaration of
independence. Instead of attend-
ing the church in which they may
have grown up, many often ex-
periment and look around in
other churches."
The Catholic faith again was
listed as the leading group on,
campus with 2,277 members and v
196 students expressing prefer-
ence for that church. The total
-2472, shows an increase of
about 150 over last year.
Close on the heels of the Cath-
olic church, Presbyterians and
Methodists led all other Protes-
tant groups.
PRESBYTERIAN recoras 2,205
members and preferences and
Methodists 2,191. Both showed a
decrease in number from last
year.
Other faiths listed are Juda-
ism with 1,673, Episcopal 1,437,
Lutheran 977, Congregational
969, Baptist 661, Christian Sci-
ence 231, Reformed 229, Chris-
tian Disciples 200, Orthodox
146, Evangelical and Reformed
120, Unitarian 61, Federated 58,
Evangelical and United Breth-
ren 41, Latter Day Saints 37,
Brethren 36 and Friends 33.
Other religious groups number
300. These include Agnostic, Athe-
ist, Buddhism, Epicurean, Hindu-
ism, Holy Roller, Mennonite, and
Seventh Day Adventist.

"We firmly believe that any re-
search investigation should be
done thoroughly and completely
or not at all," Prof. George Ka-
tona, program director of the Uni-
versity's Survey Research Center
said recently.
"Our system of interviewing is
more time-consuming and de-
tailed than other surveyors, be-
cause you can't find out the truth
about anything by mere yes or no
answers," he said.

that they can be answered by a
one word answer," he added.
Dr. 'Katona assisted in ex-
plaining the interviewing tech-
niques used by the Survey Re-
search Center at a recent press
and radio conference.
The average interview lasts
from 45 minutes to an hour, but
sometimes the person polled gets
so interested in the survey that
he talks to the interviewer for
[two hours or more," he said.
RELATIONSHIPS between in-
terviewer and respondent are us-

"THINGS AREN'T

so simple'

ually very good," Charles F. Car-
mell, head of the Center's Field
Study Division, said. The trained
surveyors take down everything
said during an interview."
A staff of supervisors travel
all over the nation hiring new
interviewers and assisting ex-
perienced survey-takers, he ex-
plained.
The supervisors are now in Ann
Arbor attending a special train-
ing session in preparation for the
1949 Consumer Finances Study
which will soon be undertaken by
the Survey Research Center.
