Offers Rare
Book Course
Among the variety of courses
that the University Extension Ser-
vice offers is one in rare book col-
lecting.
Colton Storm, who is at present
teaching the extension service
course in rare books here in Ann
Arbor, defines. a rare book as one
that is important, desirable, and
hard-to-'get. His course is de-
signed to get the aspiring collector
off on the right foot.
* * *
"AND FOR the person who does
get started in a collection of his
own, what at first glance seems
to be nothing more than a time-
consuming hobby quite often de-
velops into a fascinating game,"
said Storm.
"It seems," said Storm, "that
people derive much pleasure in
knowing that they own a book
which was originally handled
by the author himself, or per-
haps even read by his close
friends before its publication."
For the person just beginning a
collection, Storm suggests that he
start with a particular subject,
preferably one with which he is
already quite familiar.
"IF A PERSON decides to make
gis. subject for collection the same
as The field in which he is oc-
cupied, his hobby could very well
become a valuable business as-
set," added Storm.
' Groups,
Trio To Spark
Dance Festival
Campus modern dance fans will
have a chance to see the latest
form of choregraphic art at the
first Dance Festival to be held
May 19 and 20.1
T h e Dudley - Maslow - Bales
Dance Trio from the New Dance
Group in New York will spark the
Saturday performance, while the
Friday night show will bill the
Ballet and Modern Dance Clubs
in a combined program.
USING FOLK DANCES as the
basis for their productions, the
New Dance Group has become one
of the leaders in the field of Mo-
dern dance, according to Margaret
Lloyd, writer of the Borzoi Book
of Dance.

Sophie Maslow, Jane Dudley
and William Bales are three of
the brightest lights of the com-
pany. After turning impresario
in 1942, the Trio toured the
country and received rave re-
vues in papers from New York
to New Orleans for their fas-
cinating dance interpretations
of the social issues of the day.
The other half of the twin bill,
the Bullet and Modern Dance
Club were reactivated after the
war by Prof. Juana de Laban.
Suffering from the redirection of
peoples' activities during the per-
iod of combat, they had become
extremely inactive.
The Festival is being sponsored
by Inter-Arts Union, and tickets
for both performances will go on
sale next week, according to Don
Harris, '52SM, publicity chairman
for the group.

Russel Strickland, chairman of
the Delta Gamma National Pro-
ject Committee and Dean Ray
Warnock, vice-chairman of the
National IFC will be the speakers.
Jake Jacobson, outgoing IFC
president will moderate.
A PANEL discussion on the
"Function of Affiliated Groups at
Michigan" will take place at 3:15
p.m. Wednesday in the Union.
Speakers on the panel will be
Dean Walter Rea, Dean Ray
Warnock, Prof. Edward Ham,
Jake Jacobson, outgoing Panhel
President Betty Jo Faulk, Jim
Gregory, Theta Delta Chi, and
Marge Flint, Alpha Phi. The mo-
derator will be John Ryder, Del-
ta Tau Delta.
Wednesday evening the 12th an-
nual IFC Sing will move into the
limelight in Hill Auditorium. Ten
houses, winners of the preliminar-
ies, will compete for the coveted
trophies given the top three
groups.
A SECOND panel discussion -
"The Relationship of Affiliated
Groups to the Administration and
Alumni" is scheduled for 3:15 p.m.
Thursday at the Union.
Participating in the panel will
be Dean Charles H. Peake of the
Literary College, John P. Gwin
of the Office of Student Affairs,
T. Hawley Tapping, General
Secretary ofkthe Alumni Asso-
ciation, Dick Morrison, Delta
Tau Delta, Mary Riggs, Kappa
Kappa Gamma, Jim Smith, Chi
Psi and Quent Nesbitt, Phi Kap-
pa Tau.
Fraternity Week will come to an
official close with the IFC Ball
Friday evening. Individual house
parties, however, are expected to
continue the observance over the
weekend.

places that he frequents the styles
of the various radio commentators
are distinctly personal.
They identify the men as much
as their voices, as readily as the
products their sponsors advertise.
* * *
TAKE LOWELL THOMAS for
example. His affable "Good eve-
ning, everybody," and his optimis-
tic "So long until tomorrow," are
trademarks.
But so are his short clipped
sentences, his phrases - set off
by periods-that aren't even
sentences and his transitional
phrases between stories more of-
ten thanwnot merely a conversa-
tional "Well."
He also uses a particular kind of
story and treatment. It's a drama-
tic treatment, a featurizing style
which often brightens up a dull
story.
* * *
THEN THERE'S Gabriel Heat-
ter, the traditional "Voice of
Doom" of the American people.
Invariably he begins his com-
mentaries with the well-known
"There's bad (or good, as the
case may be) news tonight" and
proceeds to give his listeners the
implications of the day's hap-
penings.

his dramatics, for his emotional
vocabulary which leave his listen-
ers with a feeling of inevitable
damnation. He does make them
think, however, although it may
not be about what he intended.
* * *
"THIS . . IS THE, NEWS" is
Edward R. Murrow's identification
mark. But he is equally known for
the obvious sincerity in his pre-
sentation.
He, too, uses short clipped
sentences. But, whereas Thom-
as's broadcasts are a buddy-
to-buddy sort of thing, Murrow's
sentences.have impact, sharp
and piercing. He gives the f eel-
ing that he cares intensely, but
it's not an emotional kind of
intenseness like Gabriel Heat-
ter's.
FULTON LEWIS, JR., doesn't
use transitions between stories. He
merely pauses for an instant, as if
to take a deep breath and hold
his nose before he dives into the
next story.
His peculiarities of presentation
can probably best be summed up
by a phrase which belongs to him
alone: "Now, you know I don't like
to delve into personalities, but...."
