'UNG T R,
Stump Speakers Seek Missing Bell'
EVEN PTA PESTERS:
Davies Tells Headaches
Of Hollywood Writers
By BILL LANOUETTE
The members of Sigma Rho Tau
are making an extensive search
for their lost Tung Oil Bell in the
hopes of recovering it for the
club's annual Tung Oil Banquet
to be held Friday.
"The bell has become a tradi-
tional fixture at the banquet
Since it was found missing from
its safe-keeping place in East
Hall, the boys have been frantical-
ly searching everywhere for it,"
Robert D. Brackett, advisor, of the
engineer's stump speaking soci-

_.. e ,_ .
PROF. BRACKETT explained
the meaning of tung oil: "We
have adopted the tung tree as our
club shrub because tung oil is a
necessary tool for all good speak-
Because the members strive
for perfection in speaking, they
insist upon this same perfection
in guest speakers.
After the guest speakers have
had their alotted time, the bell is
rung so loudly that further ora-
tory is impossible. "We must ad-
journ on time. Thais ,why the
bell is so necessary," moaned Prof.
"NOT ONLY HAS the bell be-
come an integral part of our or-
ganization, but it is also a land-
mark of Ann Arbor's history. It
was used in our first courthouse
to call the community to meetings.
It also clanged the warnings of
Ann Arbor's last Indian raid," he
When the courthouse was re-
modeled, the bell was given to
the Arbeiters Schaft, a union
for the town's workers.
The organization slowly died
out as the community grew, un-
til only four men remained on

writing in a mass medium," Davies
said. Because of this, there are
many problems confronting the
Hollywood writer, he added.
One of these is the system in
which he must work, Davies said.
When the director, producer, and
executive producer all see the story
differently the story that is shot
is, consequently, the composite
view of many people and the ori-
ginal one has been diluted, modi-
fied and compromised all the way
down, he continued.
ANOTHER problem for movie
writing Davies mentioned, is that
every organization has an opinion
of what a picture says and does.
There are all kinds of pressure
groups, he said, among them the
PTA and different psychiatric
"There is not one week in
which the Screen Writer's Guild
isn't asked that this be added or
this be omitted from a Holly-
wood production," Davies added.
"It is an unfortunate necessity,
a problem that working in a
mass medium presents."
Hollywood has also imposed a
set of arbitrary rules that govern
movie making, he said. "There
are no such restrictions on foreign
films. The 'Bicycle Thief' has
three sequences that could never
go into a Hollywood picture," Da-
ONE OF THE greatest disad-
vantages to the screen writer is
that he arrived on the Hollywood
scene late, according to Davies.
"When Edison invented the
kinetiscope people were so en-
chanted by movement that they
paid little attention to the story.
The writer was pretty much ig-
nored until sound came in."
A novel element in Hollywood,
the writer-director, is the new
hope of the industry, Davies de-
clared. "Most of the successful
pictures produced recently are the
works of a writer-director."
He predicted that the future of
the writer in films will improve
and writers will be given a better
chance to express themselves.

ACCORDING TO Gordon Boo-
zer, '50L, this year's presiding
judge, the judges, who are all:Law
School seniors, were selected on
the basis of prior success in case
club work plus a consideration of
their scholastic average.
The Case Clubs of the Law
School are divided into thir-
teen trial groups this year, with
36-40 members in each group.
Generally, each group tries 4
about nine cases a year.
Case club members, freshmen
and juniors who participate as
lawyers in the trials, are given a
hypothetical set of facts to appeal.
In the case club trials a student
prepares his case and goes
through the same procedure that
an attorney does in appealing a
case from a lower court.
The final argument of the case
clubs is heard by a bench of visit-
ing judges. A faculty member sits
as judge with the senior student
judge on junior cases..
All cases are open to the pub-
lic, according to Gordon Boozer,
present presiding judge;

What students object most to
in the School of Business Admin-
istration are departmental tests
and the lack of coordination in
the briefing of lecture sections,
according to a recent survey con-
ducted by Alpha Kappa Psi, a pro-
fessional business fraternity.
These, as well as other student
opinions, were ascertained in the
survey which interviewed 896
business administration students
and 481 non-business students.
When questioned on past final
exam schedules, most students
voiced their displeasure with the
fact that too many exams occur
consecutively. They also were dis-
satisfied with early exams.
Objective tests also were cri-
ticized. About 70 per cent of the
business students interviewed be-
lieve that the meaning of many
questions on such tests are ob-
scured by vagueness of wording.
