Milstein Turns
Painter Duid u
Leisure Time
Music isn't the only interest of
Nathan Milstein, Russian - born
violinist who will perform here at
8:30 p.m. Friday in Hill Auditor-
ium.
In fact, on the day of a concert,
Milstein claims he does more
painting than practicing the vio-
lin.
ALTHOUGH Milstein claims
that art is just a "hobby" with
him, several of his works were
chosen for the first annual exhi-
bition of "Art by Musicians".
Ping-pong is another of Mil-
stein's favorite forms of recrea-
tion. His proudest boast is that
once he beat Jaseha Heifetz,
who is supposed to be the cham-
pion of this sport among mu-
sicians.
Music, though, is undoubtedly
Milstein's greatest interest, al-
though he says, "I started to play
the violin not because I was drawn
to it, but because my mother
made me."
NOW ONE of the top-ranking
violinists in the world, Milstein
has made 18 tours of the United
States and Canada, and innumer-
able tours of Europe.
During his last.European tour,
in 1947, Milstein made repeated
recital and orchestral appear-
ances in Copenhagen, Stock-
-holm, Brussels,, Paris, London,
Zurich and Schovningen, Hol-
land, where he opened the fa-
mous orchestral season.
* * *
HE HAS TOURED South Amer-
ica three times, Mexico twice, and
has also toured Egypt and Pales-
tine. At the end of the current
season, he will have appeared no
less than 33 times as soloist with
the New York Philharmonic Sym-
phony Orchestra.
Tickets for Milstein's recital
here are on sale at the University
Musical Society's offices, Burton
Tower.

grams will be available, along
with application blanks.
AND IF YOU -can't afford the
trip, NSA also will have informa-
tion on foreign correspondence
with students in several nations.
NSA sponsored programs in- i
clude tours and work-camps in
32 nations, with costs ranging
from $300 to $700. Departure
will be either June 15 or 30,
from Quebec, Canada. Students
will return to New York the first
week in September.
The deadline for applications
for NSA tours is March 15, ac-,
cording to Sue Sires, '50, chairman
of the sub-committee of the cam-
pus NSA which will operate the
bureau.
ALL OF NSA's summer pro-
grams include free periods for in-
dependent travel and are open to
all University students.
European nations included in
the tours are:
England, France, Holland, Nor-
way, Denmark, Italy, Switzerland,
Belgium, Austria, Hungary Po-+
land, Czechoslovakia, Rumania,

tours in Mexico, Guatemala and'
Peru.+
The study tours are conducted
by student guides who take groups
ranging in size from 30 tq 100
through museums and places of
cultural interest. The work-camps
involve admittedly heavy labor on
reconstruction projects in war-
devastated nations. Work ranges'
from constructing bicycle paths in
Holland to floating logs down Fin-
nish rivers.

Germany, Finland, Norway are
available for students who wish to

laims High
School Frals
Undesirable
High schools should not only
eliminate fraternities and sorori-
ties, but should provide a betterl
social program in their place.
Lawrence E. Vredevoe, director of
the University Bureau of School
Services, declared in Chicago yes-
terday.
Speaking before the National
Association of Secondary School
Principals. Vredevoe said high
school fraternities and sororities
are undesirable because' they op-
orate on "the principle ofcxclu-
siveness and its undemocraticI
principle of selection."
DEFENDERS of these organi-
sations say that they provide an
.pportunity for the individual to
become a member of a small.group
with restricted membership, closed
meetings, insignia, social affairs,,
and allegiance, Vredevoe said.
"None of these in itself is
objectionable," he said. But
"there is a sharp difference be-
tween a school orga~nization and
the sorority and fraternity."
The difference lies in the way
members are selected, Vredevoe
said. "No public school in a dem-
ocracy has a right to tolerate any
group which places membership
on any basis other than qualifi-
cation, merit and achievement."
S * *
INSTEAD, the schools should
organize a program of school par-
ties, clubs, sports and other activ-
ities to fill the students' social
needs, Vredevoe said.

must file on annual return.
That's to determine whether
you owe more or have a little
coming back.,
Where do you file? Do not send
your return to Washington. Mail it
to the office of the Collector of
Internal Revenue, at 207 First Na-
tional Bank building.
MUST YOU have your return
notarized? No. Sign it, and if}
you're filing a joint return with
your wife, be sure she signs it,
too. It will be legal and binding.
Where do you get income tax
forms? Where possible, the col-
lector mails forms directly to
taxpayers.
If you need additional forms, or
if you didn't get any, you can
pick them up at the collector's of-
fice downtown, and also at most
banks and post offices.

Conttraband Launtdry Cases
PerturbPost Office People

A drive to stop the use of laun-
dry oases for the transmission of
objects requiring other postal
rates has been begun by the cam-
pus branch of the Post Office.
Miss Mary Purtell, superinten-
dent of the branch has warned
students that anyone enclosing
written material is liable to a fine
up to $100 for illegal use of the
mails.
SHE REPORTED that the
branch has been opening pack-
ages and that students enclosing
contraband have been given the
privilege of coming down and tak-
ing such materials out.
"We have been giving them
the benefit of the doubt," she
said, "but students have been
trying to see if they could get
things through."
The postal regulation says that
"when matter of a higher class is
enclosed with that of a lower class,
the rate of postage on the entire
package shall be that of the high-
er class matter."
MISS PURTELL cited eximples
of students, one of whom had a
suitcase full of music books and
another a brief case full of notes.,
"If we put it in hands of the

inspector they could have been
fined up to $100," she added.
"Yet, when asked if there are
any articles in the package, as
they invariably are, they say no.
Every package is opened."
MISS PURTELL said that she
has contacted house mothers
about it, and at least one frater-
nity, requesting that a notice be
posted, but still results have been
poor.
"Error is excusable but deliber-
ate disobedience is not tolerable,"
she concluded.
