Playful Choir BOys
Keep Master Occupied

You have to be more than a
musician' if you are going to be
a successful choirmaster for the
20 Vienna Choir Boys.
Watching them in rehearsal
yesterday, we saw that Kapell-
meister Harald Hedding kept a
strict hand over the 10 to 13 year
old boys while they went through
their program for that night's
STILL, while the Kapellmeister
wasn't looking, two of the boys
managed to come on stage with

switches garnered from the bushes
out behind Hill Auditorium, and
another boy, Peter Eberhart, kept
jumping down from the edge of
the stage on which he was sitting
into the empty orchestra-and
back up again. Others sprawled
out in their chairs, and tested the
spring in the second row boards
set up for them. (It was rather
Even within sight of Hedding,
Hans Windisch, one of the old-
est boys, took Hedding's ciga-
rette lighter and proceeded to
test it by seeing if it would make
his switch burn. However, the
wood had not yet ignited when
the flame caught the Kapell-
meister's eye and the lighter
was retrieved.
Hedding's method for keeping
the boys from getting lost in their
trek across the continent is very
simple. "All the boys stay together
all the time," he said. "If one boy
goes for a drink, all the boys go
for a drink," he remarked.
"ANOTHER thing you have to
be firm about is ice-cream," he
remarked. "If the boys could have
their way, they would have break-
fast, lunch and 'dinner of ice-
cream. I had to make a rule: 'ice-
cream-only one time a day',"
Hedding stated.
Be Available
For Elections"
Petitions for hopefuls in the
student elections in November are
available from 3 to 5 p.m. tomor-
row through Oct. 26 at the stu-
dent window of the Administra-
tion Building, according to SL
elections chairman Bill Clark.
Petitions are needed by candi-
dates for 25 Student Legislature
seats, nine J-Hop Committee posi-
tions and three places on the
Board in Control of Student Pub-
lication, Clark said. Deadline for
petitioners is Oct. 26.
CLARK urged that petitioners
acquaint themselves with qualifi-
cations for office and the correct
way to fill petitions.
Last year 52 out of 107 peti-
tions were thrown out by Men's
Judiciary Council because of
discrepancies in petition signa-
tures. Among such discrepancies
were illegal and dunlicated

DP Measure
By Senate
Bill Returned to
ju diciaryGroup
ate voted tonight to shelve the
displaced persons bill for this sea-
The vote was 36 to 30.
Adopting a motion by Senators
Cain (R-Wash.) and Eastland (D-
Miss.), the Senate sent the hotly-
disputed measure back to its ju-
diciary committee with instrue-
tibns that it be returned for action
by next January 25.

THE BILL, passed by the House
and a prime feature of President
Truman's program, would increase
by 134,000 the number of displaced
persons to be admitted to the
U.S. and change the rules.
Tonight's vote removed one of
the stumbling blocks in the way
of proposed adjournment of Con-
gress next week.
It marked a bitter defeat for
Senator Lucas of Illinois and oth-
er administration leaders who had
demanded action on this session
on revising the present law. Presi-
dent Truman has attacked that
law as "anti-Catholic and anti-

THE SENATE'S action added up
to a personal viotory for Chairman
McCarran (D-Nev.) of the Judi-
ciary Committee who hid fought
to delay consideration of the mea-
sure untilnext year.
However, Senator Myers of
Pennsylvania, the assistant
Democratic leader, told report-
ers tonight's vote did not repre-
sent Senate sentiment on the
bill itself.
Predicting overwhelming pas-
sage of the measure in January,
Myers said many Senators who fa-
vor it were willing to put off a
showdown until then to prevent a
delay in adjournment of Congress.

Quiz Programs Lower
Integrity--Radio Expert

The big network give-away and,
quiz programs are the best pos-
sible sources of listener appeal.
and radio prestige, but for integri-
ty of radio, they are a cheap at-
tempt to "buy" an audience,
which is a big risk in case they
aren't successful.
This is the opinion of Sy Siegel,
New York City municipal radio di-
rector, in a Daily interview at a
clinic of 95 educational radio di-
rectors yesterday.

the -afternoon, Siegel declared that
CBS started out great guns with a
quiz show with a $50,000 budget,
but lost half of it after the first
airing, mainly because the ques-
tions asked were too easy, and
the audience cleaned up.
"So to keep operating on a
badly bent budget, the program
thought up impossible questions
such as 'Who was the speaker of
the House in 1921?'. and kept
listeners away in droves," he
The attempt by the Federal
Communications commission to
outlaw such give-aways will go
to the courts and eventually to
the Supreme Court, Siegel de-
* *
BUT IT WILL take two years
to do this, and meanwhile the
shows will further enjoy their
radio boom, he added.
"FCC's first mistake in deal-
ing with the programs was that
they didn't crack down for two
years, which gave the shows a
chance to dig in for a hard
fight," he said.
Another big complaint against
radio is the commercials that keep
beating the ears of listeners,
Siegel added.
A University of Denver survey
showed that one-third of all
United States listeners had a vio-
lent distaste for American radio,
Siegel said. "And one of the major
reasons given was the irritation of
radio commercials."
Siegel agreed that irritation was
good for some purposes. On
WNYC, the only municipally-
operated and financed station in*
the country, irritation is used to
great advantage during election
week when a blaring spot telling
people to vote is broken into a
symphony program.
"Nothing makes a listener mad-
der than something like this, but
it makes him aware that he
should vote," he said.

Aerial Attack
Burson Sparks
(Sports Co-Editor)
A spirited Northwestern eleven
handed Michigan its second de-
feat in as many starts yesterday
when the Wildcats edged the Wol-
verines 21-20 at Dyche Stadium.
The victory brought back vivid
memories of the 1946 season when
Army defeated Michigan 20-13,
and then the following week
Northwestern played Michigan to
a 14-14 tie.
* * *
THE same letdown that the
Wolverines suffered three seasons
Igo seemed to plague them again
yesterday. They played on even
terms with the Wildcats in the
irst half, but in the second
session Northwestern possessed
the spirit and drive which brought
them their first victory over Mich-
igan since 1937.
55,000 fans screamed and
cheered as Northwestern held
the ball for the last minute and
a half with quarterback Don
Burson taking a direct pass
from center and plowing into
the line.
Michigan had scored their third
touchdown to come within one
point of NU with just ninety se-
onds left in the game, but couldn't
get their hands on the ball with
Burson making sure by using the
time tested stalling maneuver.
THE GAME was virtually de-
cided after Michigan's sec n,
touchdown late in the third quar-
ter when Harry Allis' attempted
conversion went wide of the goal
Michigan exhibited the great-
er drive and power on the
ground, but couldn't click con-
sistently enough to score when
necessary. Northwestern never
ran a play from inside the Wol-
verines ten yard line, making all
three of their scores from out
beyond the last two yardmark-
Their shortest touchdown play
was a 17 yard pass from Don Bur-
son to Don Stonesifer, who was
hit on' the two but his motion
carried him into the end zone. The
Wildcats other two scores were
strictly spectator plays.
w * * *
WITH LESS than three min-
utes left to play in the first half
Burson, standing on his own 34,
tossed the ball to Ed Tunnicliff on
Michigan's forty and he went ail
the way for Northwestern's first
score of the day. The last touch-
down which came early in the
fourth quarter, was a 55 yard run
back of Leo Koceski's punt by
Tom Worthington.
Michigan never seemed to be
able to shake anyone loose, and
were forced to grind and drive
for every marker.
Both teams looked slow in the
first half. It looked as if they
were feeling each other out, each
one afraid to make a move for
fear the other would capitalize on
a miscue, if it should happen,
and it did.

first time Michigan had the ball,
