EPISCOPAL CHAPLAIN:
Rev. Burt Tackles Social Problems

act, Sigler landed here at Central
Michigan Airport at 6:30 p.m.
THE SILVER-HAIRED ex-gov-
ernor said he came to get an order
from Circuit Judge Paul Cash.
The order, he said, would request
State Police Commissioner Donals
S. Leonard to supply officers to
aid in preparing evidence against
Ivan A. Johnston, former Macomb
County Prosecutor.
Sigler accepted an appoint-
ment Saturday to prosecute
Johnston on bribery charges.
Yesterday, Attorney General
Stephen J. Roth struck out at the
former governor's re-entry into
the Michigan political arena.
A FORMAL petition was filed
with Judge Cash asking that the
state be given exclusive right to
prosecute the case. Roth said he
had the legal right to supersede
local authorities.
The action had all the overtones
of a lively political battle sur-
rounding the Johnston trial.

By JANET WATTS
If there's a social problem to be
tackled-whether it's probing la-
bor-management difficulties or
guiding students-the Rev. John
H. Burt will probably be in the
middle of it.
The Rev. Mr. Burt has been
chaplain of the University Epis-
copal Student Foundation for ther
past three years.
BUT MR. BURT, spent many
years working in social action
areas before entering the minis->
try.
Born in Marquette and raised
in Pontiac, Mr. Burt attended
Amherst College. After graduate
work in the new School for So-
cialResearch and at Columbia
University, Mr. Burt for a time
wrote publicity squibs for the
American Labor Party.
"In those days the party was
split between right and left wing
factions. When the party finally
went leftish, I left," he explained.

AFTER THAT, he helped to
edit the paper, "Textile Labor" for
the Textile Workers Union-CIO.

TREE TROUBLE:
Smell of Greasepaint Lures
Canines to Operetta Tryout
Ann Arbor's canine actors have come through with flying colors.
Some 17 local dogs (or their owners) have called Grace Wyman
to offer their services for hte forthcoming Gilbert and Sullivan So-
ciety production of the operetta, "Patience."

ALL THIS DOGGISH interest in the theatre came as a result
a Daily article which told of the need for a "stage-struck" dog
lend aesthetic atmosphere to the setting in "Patience."

However, there is so little to choose from among the 17 dogs
that Gilbert and Sullivan officials have decided to struggle along
without the services of a canine star.
This sacrifice was deemed necessary to avoid hurting the feelings
of any of the talented artists who have applied for the job.
"Patience" will be presented May 12, 13, and 14 at Pattengill
Auditorium.

BECAUSE OF THIS belief, Mr.
Burt decided to enter the Epis-
copal Ministry.-
After graduation from the
Virginia Theological Seminary,
he served two years as a chap-
lain in the Navy. His enthus-
iasm in working with young men
led him to campus religious
work.
As Foundation Chaplain, Mr.
Burt directs the religious and so-
cial activities for the 1,300 Epis-
copal students of the University.,
His work centers in St. Andrews

direct a week of meetings of
around 7,500 students.
"The enthusiastic student re-
sponse to Religion-in-Life Week
shows that religious discussion can
and should take place on a state
University campus," he said.
