Fabrics, Hues
Important In
With vacations just around the
corner, many coeds are turning'
their thoughts to travel wardrobes.
First of all, fashion experts say,
the travel-minded women will
want to consider the fabrics in the
clothes she selects for her trip. The
kind that do not wrinkle easily are
best, such as jersey in silk, rayon,
cotton, nylon or wool.
A SUIT in one of these fabrics
can serve wdll as a basic capsule
wardrobe for almost any type of
traveling. They can be combined
with a variety of tops, including
T-shirts, dressy nylon blouses and
Nylon is fast revolutionizing
travel wardrobes, since it saves
luggage-weight and can be laun-
dered and dried quickly.
The new fashion trend for sep-
arates gives the traveler an oppor-
tunity for frequent changes of cos-

three colors that will blend or con-

Dramaticor subtle accessories
can be used to enhance the color
scheme. A scarf or belt can
change an entire costume.

Combining theory with prac-
tice - that's the theme of the
radio division of the University's
Department of Speech.
One of the few courses of study
in the literary college where stu-
dents actually get practical ex-
perience, the radio division each
year is drawing more and more

UNDER THE able direction of
Professor Garnet Garrison, who
for five years was a production
director at the National Broad-
casting Company, the radio
courses have in recent years ex-
panded, not only in size but in
scope as well.
Working with Prof., Garrison
are Merrill McClatchey and Tom
Battin as well as a number of
other speech department faculty
Today, students can begin
with a course in introduction
to broadcasting and finish with
the study of television tech-
niques. Courses in radio speak-

HOW IT WORKS-Prof. Garnet Garrison explains to members of the television class the techniques behind teleyision production. Stu-
dents, left to right, are Bruce Huffman, Ted Sizer, Jeanne Hendel, Vic Hurwitz, and Shirley Kallman. Television students had an
opportunity to put into practice what they had learned in class during the semester when they produced, directed and acted in an original
script which was presented over Detroit station WWJ-TV.

ing, news and special events,
acting, production and writing
for radio make up a well-
rounded educational series.
What is unique about these
radio courses, however, is that
hand in hand with classroom
theory, students benefit from ac-
tual experience. Each course has
a practical outlet in the way of
actual broadcasts over Ann Ar-
bor radio stations WH2RV and
WPAG and the University FM
station WUOM.
AMONG THE radio programs
produced by the radio classes each
week are daily news broadcasts
and 15-minute children's narra-
tives, a 15-minute community ser-
vice program, dramatic shows for
children, and a half-hour drama
offering original as well as more
familiar scripts.
Television classes, too, have
had an opportunity to find out
the intricacies of putting on a
live television show. For the past
two years the classes have pro-
duced five original scripts over
Students in other departments
of the University, especially Eng-
lish, have taken radio courses to
hear their original scripts pro-
duced over the airwaves; for it is
rare that students have an oppor-
tunity to have their work treated
on a level with professionals.

IN ADDITION to actual broad-
casts, the semester's work builds
up to a two-day experimental
stint popularly, known as Opera-
tion 4006 (after the number of
the radio classroom)
Here, on each of the two days,
students condense a nine-hour
day of broadcasting into three
hours. The students do every-
thing from working the con-
trols to giving commercials and
acting in their own scripts.
The programs can only, be
heard on the fourthfloor of An-
gell Hall where the radio classes
meet, but, according to Prof. Gar-
rison, the simulated broadcast-
ing conditions give students the
feeling of timing and accuracy
required on a full-time schedule.
should obtain a well-rounded edu-
cation in addition to specific
training, speech professors have
purposely retained the radio
courses as part of the speech de-
partment rather than set aside a
specific department or school.
