HULA SKIRTS TRAVEL:
Large ,U' Hawaiian Group
To See MSC-U of H Tilt Today

By PHYLLIS KULICK
It will be "Aloha" Ann Arbor
and "hello" Lansing today as 100
Hawaiian students forego the
Michigan-Oregon fracas to cheer
for their native University in its
game with Michigan State.
MANY OTHER Hawaiian stud-
ents from surrounding universit-
ies will attend the game which
promises to be a real homecoming
for their native team.
A strange contrast of East and
West will pervade Macklin Field
Stadium. The Hawaiian students
will don flashy aloha shirts, sar-
ongs, holokus, hula skirts and the
Thirty Percent}
Of French See
War in Decade
Approximately 30 per cent of
the French people expect another
war within the next ten years, ac-
cording to Prof. Jean Stoetzel,
of the University of Bordeaux, di-
rector of the French Institute of
Public Opinion.
Speaking at Kellogg Auditorium
yesterday, Prof. Stoetzel stated
that the number of Frenchmen
who are undecided about current
political issues increases every day.
*' * *
PRICES ARE so high in France,
he continued, that the average
citizen is much more interested in
economic than political questions.
Most oftthe consumer articles
being sent to Europe through
CARE packages and ERP are
available on the French market, he
said, but the prices are "terrific."
IN COMMENTING on the polit-
ical scene inside France, Prof.
Stoetzel said that, according to
the most recent public opinion
polls, 29 per cent of the people
favor Gen. De Gaulle's party,
while 30 per cent of the popula-
tion would side with the French
Communists. The remainder of
the French people are divided
among the four center parties.

traditional lei will replace the
crysanthamum.
Waving U. of H. pennants, the
group will form a sizeable cheer-
ing section in one solid block of
the stadium. Since most of the
students have attended the Uni-
versity of Hawaii, the alma mater
and cheers are well known to
them.

Not all of the tradition of Haw-
aiian football will be there how-
ever. In Hawaii, the game is play-
ed barefooted. Because of the heat
there it is necessary to change
teams every ten minutes. This
may not seem so strange to Michi-
ganites who are used to similar
tactics in Fritz Crisler's coaching,
one of the group explained.
The Hawaiian Club will honor
their Varsity after the game with
a dinner in Lansing.
Governor Kim Sigler has pro-
nounced today Hawaiian Day in
honor of the occasion.

OFF ThERECOR4
By RALPH MATLAW
Classics.
Several recent recordings and reissues of items lately unobtainable
have brightened the scene considerably for those interested in
Schubert.
The superb recording of the "Trout" quintet by Artur Schnabel,
Claude Hobday and members of the Pro Arte Quartet (Victor
DM-312, 5 12 in. records) is again available. Schnabel, some of whose
recordings are extremely pedestrian, while others are first-rate both
musically and technically, is unrivalled as a player of Schubert, as he
demonstrates in this recording of the "Trout."
THE PERFORMANCE of the quintet not only shows a deep
understanding of the music, but also makes it obvious that the
performers thoroughly enjoyed playing it. Close cooperation of the
artists makes the most of this quintet which has tremendous range
and contains some of the finest music Schubert wrote.
There is excellent balance between strings and piano, despite
the age of the album. The quiet emotion of the eloquent andante
is played with reserve and feeling.
The variations on the "Trout" theme contain wonderful humor,
and the last movement is played with all the verve necessary to
maintain the gay Hungarian tune that forms the base of the
movement.
PROBABLY THE BEST thing in the new Toscanini--NBC Or-
chestra album of the Schubert 9th (Victor DM-1167, 6 12 in. records)
is the long quotation from Schumann's celebrated essay. "Here we
have, besides masterly power over the musical technicalities of
composition . . . color in exauisite gradations, the minutest accuracy
and fitness of expression, and permeating the whole work a spirit of
romance . . . " This apt description of the most profound of his
symphonies fits much more closely a performance such as the one
by Bruno Walter and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra (Colum-
bia MM-697, 6 12 in. records).
This is a superlative and definitive performance by a Vienna-
trained musician who understands Schubert's music perfectly and
executes it faultlessly.
Tosconini, who has a great reputation as a conductor of this
symphony, is much too inflexible, and makes the error of giving
Schubert a discipline foreign to him, thereby distorting the music.
The rigidity of Toscanini's performance and his ill-chosen tempi are
immediately evident.
There is a flexibility in Walter's conducting which permits
the utmost exploitation of the lyrical spirit of the work.
Toscanini plays the second movement at too fast a tempo and
with a strict beat, so that most of its beauty is lost. Walter's
rendition is more easy-going, and consequently comes closer to the
proper mood of the movement.

By MALCOLM RAPHAEL
The "new sounds" of be-bop still pretty much dominate current
jazz output. Its practitioners are still saturating themselves with
plenty of Stravinsky and Debussy, Hindemith and Schoenberg.
But whether or not be-bop is evolving and maturing as was
originally expected is a debatable question. Certainly the current
slump in the music business, the record ban, and public apathy are
far from stimulating influences.
* * * *
CREATION IN JAZZ seems to have been relegated to the private
jam session, small bars in Harlem, and to the music school where
many young musicians have taken refuge. Until the new syntheses
of this jazz "underground" are again recorded, the record buyer will
have to be satisfied with a 1946 and 1947 product, and with the many
fine re-issues of an even earlier vintage that the record companies
have been forced to market.
Victor, Columbia, and Decca have re-issued a great many
of their great pressings of the Swing Era. These records were
selling when many of us were getting our first and probably
greatest kicks from jazz.
Don't miss Melancholy Baby and Sweet Sue by the Benny Good-
man Quartet (Victor). Also on a Victor re-issue is Duke Ellington's
Perdido and Raincheck, a record of particular timelessness. Ellington's
famous C-Jam Blues and Moonmist (Victor) is also back on the
shelves of local record shops. Worthy of particular mention is the
unexpected re-issue of Count Basie's Lady Be Good, a disc that has
been scarce for years. It is as modern in conception as a Gillespie
block-buster and contains some of the best work of tenormen Lester
Young and the almost sainted Hershal Evans.
BILLIE HOLIDAY is back, too. I mean the old Holiday, the
great vibrant unforgettable Holiday of the mid-thirties who used
to sing with Teddy Wilson and sidemen from the sensational bands
of Basie and Ellington.
Hear her on Columbia's re-issue of I Cried For You, singing
with beat and vitality and teamed with pianist Teddy Wilson in one
of the finest combinations of jazz history.

CURRENT RELEASES in the "pop" field worth more than one
listen are Sarah Vaughn's It's Magic (Musicraft), a technicolor
arrangement of For Heaven's Sake by Claude Thornhill featuring
very; very sharp vocalist Fran Warren (Columbia), Frank Sinatra
and trumpeter Bobby Hackett teamed on a really wonderful treatment
of I've Got a Crush On You, and Art Mooney's Bluebird of Happiness
(M-G-M), a record so wretched, so loathsome, that the cultured ear
is compelled to inspect it with strange and horrible fascination.
GREAT NAMES
IN MUSIC
Schubert was born at Vienna
in 1797 into a family of
school masters and amateur
musicians. His talents were
recognized early. Even as a
youth, he had an overwhelm-
ing urge to compose. At 18,
he composed one of his most
famous and most powerful
songs, setting Goethe's poem
The Eri-King to music. After~
this composition, he produced
songs furiously. Indeed, all

Professor Mischa Titiev of the
Anthropology Department re-
turned from his Sabbatical leave
just in time to meet classes this
year, after spending the summer
months on a research trip in
South America.
Included in the trip was a six
months stay in Chile, where Dr.
Titiev made an extensive study of
the changing cultural customs of
the Aranucanian Indians. This
study was made possible by a grant
from the Horace B. P,ackham
School of Graduate Studies Re-
search Fund.
ANOTHER FIVE WEEKS were
spent during the latter part of the
summer in Peru. Here Dr. Titiev
did a follow-up of a survey started
in 1940 by Professor Robert S.
Hall, director of the Center for
Japanese Studies, concerning the
social structureyof the Peruvian
Japanese society.

Dr. Titiev said that one of the
main difficulties he encountered
in making accurate surveys among
the Chilean Indians was the scat-
tered population. The lack of com-
inunities as such necessitated fre-
quent rough trips by horseback in
cold and rainy weather.
ANOTHER interesting feature
observed during the trip was that
the natives have retained rela-
Lively few of the features of the
old way of life.
While such features as na-
tive dress and speech, pastimes
such as field hockey, and even
medicine women are present to-
day, the native arts and crafts,
and especially the fierce mili-
tary spirit of the ancient In-
diang are notably lacking.
In the course of his studies of
the effects of the defeat of Japan

anese living in Peru, Dr. Titiev
