Professor Receives Award

RECEIVES AWARD-Prof. Howard Y. McClusky (left), of the School of Education, receives an
award from Harry Berg, '50, for "conspicuous service" as a teacher. Berg, retiring president of the
Michigan Education Club, presented the trophy at a banquet last night in the Union, on behalf of
the students taking education courses in the University.

R. W. NORRIS and R. C. Pick-
hardt, representatives of a na-
tionally-known cigarette f i r m ,
have been traveling to 39 campus-
es throughout the country offer-
ing one junior at each campus an
opportunity to come into the sales
division of their company for an
eight week period this summer.

The two men spend one day
at each campus. Their high so
far for a day's work has been 27
appointments at the University
of Southern California.
"We are getting excellent pros-
pects," Pickhardt testified, "and
it's extremely hard to cohose."

THE QUALITY that the two
men look for first is the ability of
the student to sell himself. Per-
sonality and appearance are also
important, they added.

Norris is particularly impress-
ed by the applicant's handshake.
"Pumpers, squeezers and dead
fish just don't go over with me
at all." Pickhardt declared the



Composition Forum To Play
Student Composers' Works

Musical talent on campus will
receive additional incentive at the
fourth composition forum of the
year at 4:15 p.m. Monday in
Rackham Assembly Hall.
Under the direction of Prof.
Ross Finney, of the music school,
the forum . was begun last year
to give aspiring student composers
an opportunity to have their
works performed and criticized.
* * *
compositions by students of the
School of Music are given their
first public performance. The best
works played during the series are
chosen for performances outside
of the University.
To provide a contrasting
standard for the student com-
position, each forum program is
begun with an accepted modern
masterpiece of classical music.
Hindemith's "Das Marien Le-
ben," which is set to the text by
the famous modern poet, Ranier
Rilke, will open Monday after-
noon's concert.
THE FIRST student composi-
tion will be "Piano Quartet in B
Flat," by Jack Hodin, '51. It con-
sists of two movements, the first
slow and poetic, the second dy-
Edward Troupin is scheduled
for the second spot on the pro-
gram with a lyrical fugal work
by violin major.
Third will be "Sonata for Vio-
lin and Piano," by Donald Scavar-
da, '51SM. Scavarda's composition
has been described by Prof. Fin-
ney as a provocative, sweeping
work with a curious melodic idiom.

THE FINAL PIECE of the af-
ternoon will be "Quartet in D" by
Fred Truesdell, '50. This work, ac-
cording to Prof. Finney, repre-
sents the problem of youig com-
posers who have been brought up
in a musical world of jazz.
Most contemporary American
composers, he said, are faced
with the problem of integrating
this natural feeling into serious
musical expression.
Following the performance of
the student works, a discussion
period will be held to obtain the
reaction of the audience and of
the musicians, to the new compo-
sitions. The student composers will
form the answering panel.
Students To
Tour Campus
Students of the University's De-
troit extension branch will visit
the campus today.
According to Irene Kauska, as-
sistant supervisor of the Detroit
branch, about 40 students are ex-
pected to come here for the day.
Most of the students are taking
night school courses and many of
them plan to attend the University
in the near future.
The students will take a tour of
the campus, comparing the facil-
ities of the Detroit branch with
those of the University. "Last fall,"
Miss Kauska said, "there were
3,300 students enrolled in the De-
troit program."

thing that annoyed him most in
an interviewee was indifference.
Both men chuckled in recalling
the case of a nervous Oregon State
junior, who, as he was leaving the
interview, accidentally dropped a
package of a rival brand of cigar-
ettes on the flooy. "It fell right at
our feet," Norris said. "The poor
boy was very upset-he thought it
was the kiss of death."
The two agents have no fear of
hiring a salesman who doesn't
smoke. In fact, their choice from
Michigan State is a non-smoker.
"He'll soon be smoking," Norris
beamed confidently, "-and our
brand, too."
M. L. FAUPEL, agent for a na-
tional insurance company, com-
plained that "everyone is afraid
of the life insurance business. We
have to sell the applicants on the
insurance business as much as
they have to sell themselves," he
said. He averages 50 interviews be-
fore he gets one agent, "and we
are always needing more agents."
Faupel, whose office is in
Ypsilanti, comes to the Univer-
sity twice a year and to Michi-
gan State once. He usually hires
at least one student here on each
"Sincerity is the quality I look
for most in an applicant," Faupel
said. He also inquires into the
student's socialistic philosophy.
"There's no place in the commis-
sion system of the insurance busi-
ness for people who feel the gov-
ernment should support them," he
* * *
LIKE THE cigarette representa-
tives, Faupel emphasized the im-
portance of a good hand clasp. One
of his pet peeves is interviewees
who slouch in their chairs.
Faupel gives each applicant a
brief aptitude test, but he counts
more on the interview. "You
can't find out in an aptitude test
how ambitious a man is," he ex-
Although he prefers to hire stu-
dents of business administration,
Faupel finds the majority of his
applicants are frustrated history
majors. "If they can't get a job
in anything else, they can always
fall back on the insurance busi-
ness," he observed.

SL Bureau
Of Speakers
Set forFall
Student-Faculty Night
Included in Plans
The Student Legislature hopes
to inaugurate a new campus tra-
dition next fal when its recently
established speakers bureau goes
into action.
By setting up the speakers bu-
reau, SL hopes to make one eve-
ning a week faculty night for
campus house groups, Irv Stenn,
'52, campus action committee
members, said.
Thursday has been tentatively es-
tablished as that night.
* * *
"MANY HOUSE groups have
enjoyed having faculty guests out
to dinner and holding after din-
ner discussions this year," Stenn
The bureau's purpose would
be to extend the scope of such
student-faculty get-togethers to
as many house groups as possi-
"This encouragement of greater
student-faculty contact and dis-
cussion will be brought about
through our bureau, which will
act as a channeling body, making
it easier for student groups to
obtain faculty speakers when they
want them," Stenn explained.
The bureau has already enlist-
ed 40 faculty in the program and
hopes to have more by the end
of the summer, Stenn said.
"In keeping with the SL's hu-
man relations program," he ra-
marked, "the house having the
speaker will be asked to invite an-
other house unit in to take part
in the discussion."
* * *
ANOTHER new student govern-
ment project: The SL has adopted
plans which call for taking over
Art Cinema League next fall.
The motion will be sent to Stu-
dent Affairs Committee for ap-
proval. An outline of the plan fol-
An SL board would be establish-
ed which would appoint a paid
student manager and assistants
to run ACL.
Co-sionsors would be picked by
the SL board on the basis of cri-
teria to be established.
A suggested 20 per cent of the
proceeds from the showings would
go to the SL, the remainder would
go to the co-sponsoring group.
YDs Return
Frank Butorac, '51, and Lyn
Marcus, '50, members of the cam-
pus Young Democrats, have re-
turned from Chicago, where they
attended the National Democratic
conference and Jefferson jubilee.
While there, they attended a re-
ception for President Truman at
which the President spoke. They
also attended a party of 50 people
at the invitation of Jake Arvey,
Chicago Democratic leader. Pre-
sent at the party were Vice-Presi-
dent Alben Barkley, Secretary of
Labor Maurice Tobin and Gen.
Harry Vaughan, among others.
Butorac and Marcus, members
of the Michigan Democratic state
central committee, met many na-
tional Democratic leaders during
their three days in Chicago, and

attended several meetings and
panel discussions.
Three Students
Get Scholarships
Three students have been
awarded summer school scholar-
ships to the University of Mexico
in Mexico City.
Barbara Pierce '51, Ann Shan-
non, '51, and Beverly Gibbs, '51,
received the scholarships, which
are offered annually by the So-
ciedad Hispanica.

A good stage manager must have
the qualities and abilities of a good'
director as well as control of the
technical aspects of a production,
according to Joseph Leon, =stage
manager for the current Ann Ar-
bor Drama Season.
Leon is currently staging "Tem-
pest" and is preparing for "Born
Yesterday," which will open at
8:30 p.m. Monday in Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre.
* ~**
THE DIRECTOR leaves the res-
ponsibility for both the artistic and
technical side of the show in the
stage manager's hands on opening
night, Leon said.
Being able to maintain proper
discipline among the actors and
keeping track of them at all
times is one -of the main duties
of the stage manager.
Another job which often worries
Leon is obtaining unusual'"props".
Finding a liquor luggage case, a
dictionary stand and a 16-inch
globe are among the problems
which Leon is facing for the com-
ing "Born Yesterday" production.
* * *
LEON BECAME a stage mana-
ger because it was a step toward
becoming a director, which is his
goal. He listed knowledge and un-
derstanding of actors' problems as
well as technical know-how as im-
portant training for future stage,
"Psychology is also important,
for the manager must be able to
understand his play and get the
feel of the various parts," Leon
Leon has little to do with the ac-
tual designing of the stage setting,
which is being done by Robert
Mellencamp, who also did the sets
for the Union Opera. The set for
"Born Yesterday" will represent a
lush $235-a-day hotel apartment

litically influential Junk King of
