Dr. Lemon Helps Student Feel at Home

Perhaps the "no distinction be-
tween students and townspeople"
rule at the Presbyterian Churchr
accounts for the fact that student.

Sunday congregation at the
Washtenaw Avenue church.
The Rev. William P. Lemon
pastor and director of student ac-y
tivities there for the past 15 years
explains the church simply tries '
to build a normal church rela-
lonship for the students.y
"WE DON'T pamper any group,"
he said. "After all, students are
going to return to their home
church after a few years here. We
try to fit students into our pro-
gram by asking them to serve as
teachers, members of the choir
and the drive behind several proj-

Mr. Lemon was educated at the
University of South Wales and

His life-long interest in litera-

volumes, it includes several manu-
scripts on the influence of such
Christian traditions as Christmas
and Easter on literature.

Cause of Polish War

Captured German Foreign Of-
fice documents reveal that with-
out the. Nazi-Soviet non-aggres-
sion pact of 1939 Poland would not
have been invaded in that year,
declares Dr. Howard M. Ehrmann,
associate professor of history.
Prof. Ehrmann, writing in the
current issue of the Michigan
Alumnus Quarterly Review, sur-
veys Russia's role in the early
years of the war, and the secret
diplomacy which led to war, as
revealed in captured documents.

tiations with Britain and France,
Prof. Ehrmann points out dif-
ferences of opinion about why
Russiafinally allied herself with
At first, Prof. Ehrmann says,
Russia preferred an alliance
with England and France, but
the Allied powers considered her
demands excessive. The Krem-
lin then turned to Germany.
A secret clause in the Nazi-So-
viet pact defined Russian and
German interests in eastern Eu-
rope. It was the basis for Russian
occupation of the Baltic states,

ASSURED of Russian neutral-
ity, Hitler was able to go ahead'
with his war on the West.
"Had there been an Anglo-1
French-Soviet alliance, or even if
Russian attitude had been at all
uncertain, Hitler would not have
dared risk a war on two fronts'
then," Prof. Ehrmann explains.
QFF TIhE RECOR )
By JOHN OSMUNDSEN
Popularity polls come and go every year and last for but a short
duration in the eyes of the public. Metronome magazine, however.
holds an annual popularity poll for the music world and this poll is
unique in that the results are preserved on wax for posterity. After
the final count of the ballots, the poll winners are gathered for a
short recording session with the Victor Record Company, and soon
the efforts of the top musicians in the country, according to popular
opirfion, are available to the public.
This week, the Victor Company released the Metronome All-
Star disc recorded by the winners of last year's poll. Victor has been
offering this service for a number of years now, but we have con-
sidered only a few sides to be representative of the actual abilities of
the musicians on the discs. This has been due to the fact that the
group are generally thrown together, as it were, and the men have
not had the advantage of working with each other until the date
of the pressing. This year's waxing was probably cut under the same
conditions, but for the most part, it doesn't suffer from many of the
maladies endured by previous all-star recordings. Victory Ball and
Overtime feature the musical prowess of jazz stars: Dizzy Gillespie,
Miles Davis, and Fats Navarro, trumpet; Kai Winding and J. J. John-
son, trombones; Buddy De Franco, clarinet; Charlie Parker, alto sax;
Charlie Ventura, tenor sax; Lennie Tristano, piano; Billy Bauer, gui-
tar; Eddie Safranski, bass; and Shelly Manne, drums. Ball is just as
its name implies, and the musicians really have one on that side. It
is based on a tricky little riff written by Tristano and is reminiscent
of his recorded arrangements on the Keynote label. Parker, Ventura,
De Franco, and Tristano are featured on this side in some very inter-
esting solos. Miles Davis also ran but seemed to be suffering from a
poverty of ideas.
