rushed to the Druid rock on the
lawn in front of Angell Hall to
extinguish flames of a ritual Druid
bonfiretwhichnhad somehow
gotten out of control.
Druids traditionally hold their
initiation ceremonies at this spot.
but this was the only time the
senior men's honorary society
created such a holocaust..
ANNUALLY, Druids tap men
outstanding in campus activities
for membership. Juniors in the
literary, forestry, music, archi-
tecture and education schools are
eligible.
An "ordeal" and ceremony at
the Druid rock follow the
tapping. The neophytes are or-
dered to maintain complete sil-
ence to stress meditation.
Later, during the formal initia-
tion, two men at a time keep an
hour's vigil at the rock. New and
old members exchange food to
symbolize their enduring friend-
ship.
PLAYING a significant role on
campus, Druids attempt to main-
tain the standards set at the Uni-
versity by working as a policy
making group. They gather and
disseminate opinions from all
phases of campus life as repre-
sented by the members.
The group takes its name and
ideals from a group of intellec-
tual men in medieval England.
Druid means "oak of knowl-
edge."
Although there are societies of
the same. name at other univer-
sities, there is no national Druid
organization.

After a lapse of seven years the
Michigan Union Opera, has been
revived.
The show with Dave Leyshon as
general chairman is now in pro-
duction. Twelve songs and the
script have been written,
CASTING FOR the 32 member
all male compay is scheduled to
begin within two Weeks.
Plans have heen made to stage
the show March 23, 24, 25, at the
Michigan Theatre.
Jack Hooper, University alum-
nus, who took part in the last
show, which starred Tom Harmon
in 1941, was instrumental in re-
viving the Opera Union.
UNION OPERAS enjoyed great
success at the University from

1908 to World War II. Old operas
were held=in the. Whitney Theatre.
The original idea behind the
Operas was to help finance con-
struction of the Union. Prof.
Donal. Raines of the Journalism
school wrote the first script.
"Cotton Stockings," the 1923
Union production, was produced
on. Broadway with the original
student. cast. It set the amateur
show record for gross receipts,
$90,000. The 1949 show probably
won't go on the road, according to
Bill Zerman and Ev Ellin co-pro-
motion chairmen.
PROF. MAYNARD KLEIN, di-
rector of the University Choir is
faculty advisor and has worked

in close connection with Jim
Wright '50 who wrote the script.
Advice of a New York director
has been procured and all possi-
ble mneasurea, to give the show a
professional touch have been
made stated Zerman.
The other members of the opera
general committee are Simn3:ow-
ard, Jim Giblin, Jim Smith, and
George Dreschler.
