Two little-known services for
udents carried on by the Stu-
nt Legislature are the Better
tsiness Bureau and the Rent
ntrol Committee.
The most important function of
i Better Business Bureau is the
suance of permits to solicitors
id salesmen who wish to sell in
mpus dorms and houses. These
r Its are designed to prevent
iuging and extortion of students
fraudulent sellers.
This service prevented a $91
5k sale fraud last winter. By
lick cooperation with the police
le extortionist was caught and
le money returne .
To prevent similar swindles, Irv
enn, '52, bureau chairman has
rged all house groups to require
rmits of all solicitors. Stenn

For Returning
"Unless fines are paid and
books are returned to the General
Library before the end of the
semester, many students will find
themselves unable to register at
the University in the fall," Fred
Dimock, Chief Circulation Librar-
ian warned.
Each year as finals approach we
find it necessary to issue this re-
minder to all students who have
not settled their accounts, he said.

BEGINNING JUNE 8, all records
will be examined and those stu-
dents who are found to have books
charged to them or fines to pay
will be notified, he explained.
As a last measure, students'
names will be sent to the Univer-

the Masonic Auditorium last week.
THE SHOWING represented the
last leg of a three-week road stint
which originated in Pasadena, and
comes to an end this week in New
York's Carnegie Hall.
Praising Benny as "an angel
to work with," Miss Blaine not-
ed in a Daily interview that "the
man from Waukegan" - now
topping the Hooper rating lists
- performs tirelessly and with-
out gripes.
"We will have played 21 cities in
21 days, with barely a few short
hours in between for rest. But the
entire troupe-especially Jack-
has accepted the chore as a pleas-
ant one," she remarked.

POINTING OUT she has been
in show business since the age of
14, Miss Blaine "hasn't regretted
a moment of it." She's happy with
her good luck, which includes a
Hollywood contract and a forth-
coming television show of her own
from New York.
Her voice has rocketed her
from singing engagements with
eastern bands-she's a Newark,
N.J., native-to starring roles in
"Nob Hill," "Greenwich Village,"
"Three Little Girls in Blue" and
"Something for the Boys."
Her favorite picture? "Why,
'State Fair,' of course. It was my
first big chance and I'm still
grateful for the part," she ad-

WITH NO movie commitments
right now, Miss Blaine is concen-
trating on securing talent for her
New York City T-V show. It'll fea-

Following the tour's windup per-

turn to the metropolis, after she
and her movie agent husband pay
a short visit to their Beverly Hills
home-"and our newly-acquired
boxer dog," she added.

German Expatriate's Newest

Founded in 1890;

The Michigan League, center of campus women's activity, is a
constantly expanding organization with a fascinating history.
Today the League plays an important part in the life of every
woman student at the University but things were not always so.
UNDER THE present setup, The League activities are planned
a week in advance at the Monday night meeting of the League
Council. The chairman of each League committee is present along
with other League officials, and, under the leadership of League
president Jennie Quirk, new ideas are discussed and schedules planned.

Baxter Named
To Botany Post
Prof. Dow V. Baxter, professor
of forest pathology and professor
of botany in the School of Fores-
try and Conservation, has been
selected president of the forest
botany section of the Internation-
al Botanical Congress.
Baxter, the first American so
honored, has left Ann Arbor to at-
tend the Congress meeting in July
in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Congress is the only all in-
clusive congress in the field of
botany, according to Dean Samuel
Dana of the Forestry School.

ductor of the University Bands,

member of an old Bavarian mu-
sical family and the son of a Mu-
nich State Opera concert master.
Hosl came here from Ger -
many with his American wife a
little over a year ago. Since his
arrival he has been composing
and giving private music lessons
to advanced students.
Hosl began his musical training
under his father's direction. He
eventually became a violist with
the Munich String Quartet, and,
from 1922 to 1935 he worked un-
der Bruno Walter in the Munich
State Opera Orchestra. He has
been unaffiliated with any or-
chestra since 1935, and has mainly
devoted his time to composition.

his wife led a semi-secluded life
in Munich. 'The government left
us alone," he said, "and I was free
to continue my work, but because
my wife is an American we were
watched continuously," he said.
Musicians should not have to
be bothered with matters of pol-
itics and government, Hosl feels.
"Musicians are in the world to
make music," he said. "Music is
an art, and we are its servants."
The dedication of the work to
be played tomorrow has a story
behind it, according to Hosl. "Dok-
tor was visiting in my home the
day the manuscript was finished,"
he explained. "Though the ink was
still wet, he picked it up and
played it so magnificently that I
decided I must dedicate the piece
to him," he said.
