A trial program of socialized
medicine-or any other plan of
the welfare state-can only end
in complete nationalization and
absolute government control of
private property, Dr. Geoffrey
Myers, an English surgeon, warn-
ed last night.
Lecturing at a meeting of the
Washtenaw County Medical So-
ciety, Dr. Myers, consulting sur-
geon of West Cornwall Hospital
in Penzance, England, charged
that a "bureaucratic" welfare
state in any country separates
people from the wealth of their
* * *
"WHEN the individual no long-
er has control over his private
property in the 'property-less'
welfare state, it then creates a
real need for welfare," Dr. Myers
As an example, Dr. Myers said
, that when a national health
"scheme" was first given to the
British people in 1911, no one
thought that medicine would
Ibecome a state monopoly.
"But the British people have
been taken for a ride, forced into
collectivism, and are now govern-
ed by a stereotyped formula de-
vised by others than ourselves."
DR. MYERS claimed that state
contrl of medicine by the Bri-
tish gbvernment has:
1. Removed ownership of pri-
vate practice from doctors.
2. Destroyed hospital autonomy,
and forced the control of as many
as 200 widely-distributed hospi-
tals under one regional board.
3. Created an "army of snoop-
ers" upon whose aid the socialist
4. Caused a breakdown of im-
portant confidential relationships
between the doctor and his pa-
Dr. Myers asserted that in
spite of the National Medicine
Service in Britain, "all doctors
are treated alike, but the good
ones are dragged down while
the bad are lifted up."
Dr. Myers said that other coun-
tries must remember that "social-
ism as a form of government does
not depend on a socialist govern-
ment, but a general welfare con-
cept forced on the people by
* 'I *
"IN BRITAIN, the welfare state
has been pushed to the fore-front
during the last 40 years by lib-
erals, and not by the socialist gov-
ernment that came into power
four years ago."
To MeetT'od ay

geons and doctors from all parts
of Michigan will meet on the cam-
pus today to hold three meetings
on problems of industrial health.
The morning and afternoon ses-
sions, beginning at 9 a.m. and 2

COLD SHOULDER-Given a kingdom for the affection they have
shown the king (John Sargent), his two daughters Regan (Ann
Husselman) and Goneril (Joyce Atchison) drive Lear from his
castle in "King Lear," opening a four-night run at 8 p.m. in
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.

House lights will dim at 8 p.m.

four night run today at Lydia
Critics consider the play to be
the most calamitous of the Bard's
works since eleven of the feature
characters are killed or wounded
by flashing swords, broken hearts
*. * *
THE MAIN plot revolves about
old King Lear's decision to divvy
up his kingdom among his three
daughters according to their feel-
ings toward the old man, but with
one catch-they must express
their love publicly. Favorite daugh-
ter Cordelia, proud as the old king,
refuses. Lear cuts her off without

studies of modern French youth"

the romance language department,
described the forthcoming Cercle

closely five young people, ranging
in age from 16 to 29 years, whose
parents leave them alone in a
country home for 24 hours.
With no parental supervision,
the characters act and react spon-
taneously, speak colorfully and
carry on petty bickerings in an at-
mosphere of gay nonchalance,
Prof. Koella explained.
Starring are Owen Loveless,
Grad, as the aviator; J. Warren
Bunyan, '50, as Bernard Gassin;

will go, Shiel said, would not be
known until next February. At
that time the remaining over-
flow of students will be put in
rooms "which will lend them-
selves best to a second or a
third person," he explained.

Natators Find Uke
Big Help in Wooing
The Michigan swimming team
owes a great deal to a long-un-
recognized Portugese inventor, Sal-
Back in the era before radio
and Arthur Godfrey, Senor Munez
put together cat-gut strings and
a sounding box to make the 'first
ukulele. This little instrument,
whose name comes from Hawaiian
words meaning "jumping flea" has
twanged its way into the heart
of the American public.
The swimming team is the prize
Ann Arbor example of ukulele-itis.
* * *
MEMBERS OF THE team were
unaware of the beauties of Senor
Munez' invention until their
Christmas vacation visit to the
sunny sands of Florida. Anxious
to make the best possible impres-
sion on the denizens of that orange
bedecked state, they were quite
chagrined to notice that the boys
from Ohio State seemed to make
much better time than they did.
The Ohio secret soon was out.
The ukulele had come to Colum-
bis with the influx of students
from Hawaii. Since fair ladies
everywhere seem to be equally
susceptible to the combination
of moonlight and "uke" music,
the men of the scarlet and grey,
each equipped with a ukulele,
had proved irresistable.
Alert Michiganders were not far
behind, and soon both teams were
wooing in the Florida nights with
the gentle strumming of ukuleles.
"It's so easy to play," diver George
Eyster explained, "all you have
to do is hit it once and then sing."
* * *
OTHER ANN Arborites have fal-
len victim to the lulling strains
of "uke" music. "We used to sell
about six a year," one local mer-
chant declared, "but business has
boomed up to one a week now that
Arthur Godfrey is twanging one."
But buying the instrument isn't
the end for anyone who really
wants to master it. First on the
list of accessories necessary to the
green "uke" man is the indispen-
sible instruction book.
ARMED WITH a knowledge of
simple chords in the key of C, the
novice goes on to purchase music
- any kind of music - just so
long as it has "uke" chords in it.
And, these tunes seem to do the
trick in obtaining the hearts of
shrewd women, according to Ey-
Zither May Brimg Atmosphere
To Local Run of 'Third Man'
The sound of a zither will echo
through the lobby of the Michigan
Theatre during the run of "The
At least, it will if Gerald Hoag,
the Michigan's manager, can find
So far he's had no response to
his local want ads, and a quick
check with Dean Earl V. Moore
of the Music School indicated any
zither players in that department
had been keeping their light under
* *, *
THE ZITHER is featured in this
recent British film release. When
director Carol Reed was in Vienna,
he heard a young man playing the
native Austrian instrument, and
decided it created the perfect op-
erating atmosphere for his dis-
illusioned American hero.
This "Third Man Suite" as
the background music has been
called, is now a smash record
Hoag indicated he wanted his
zitherist to play something on the
order of "Third Man" music.
* * *
For those of us who were not
around at the beginning of the
century, when the zither was the
favorite American instrument,
it's a small wooden box with
strings across it, played with a
So if Hoag gets a response to
his plea for a zitherist, we'll soon
be seeing how it was done back
in 1900. And "The Third Man"
will have an added attraction.

Students who want the smug
pleasure of saying they've read the
oldest book in the Library are in
for a sad surprise when they fi-
nally locate it.
The oldest 'book' is more than
100 Babylonian-cuneiform clay

tablets,adating from 700B.C.
which can be seen on exhibit in
These clay blocks, inscribed
with stylus-made symbols, look
like the tracks of a lost kitten on
a freshly-laid cement sidewalk.
Only scholars who have devoted
many years to learning the Baby-
lonian tongue can decipher the
messages imbedded in the clay.
* * *
NO ONE WITHDRAWS these
'volumes' from the, files any more.
Long ago, researchers used all the
modern techniques of photography
and managed to get good repro-
ductions of the indented clay
Using these, scholars trans-
lated the odd-shaped symbols
into records of battles, or long
tax lists. After these transla-
tions were published, the clay
blocks were useful only as his-
torical references and were re-
tired to a life of public exposure
at the Archeological Museum.
If the thought of droping a clay
block on his toe doesn't please the
average student, perhaps he
would settle for the easier-to-
handle though younger, papyrus
manuscript of segments of the
Epistles of St. Paul, which date
back to 300 A.D.
