EIGHT WATT MUSICALE:
West Quad Radio Station
Boasts No Commercials

By BOB KEITH
Beaming its powerful eight watts
out to half the West Quadrangle,
station WQAR lays claim to the
title of Ann Arbor's smallest broad-
casting station.'
Located on the third floor of
Allen-Rumsey House, WQAR has
been operating since early 1948,
piping soft music, hot jazz and
news of pertinent events into the
rooms of West Quad men.
WQAR IS THE achievement of
Fred Kerr, '51E, who built most of
the equipment himself, marshall-
ing together bargains and spare
parts so that today the station
boasts of sending and receiving
apparatus, microphones, loud
speakers, a wire recorder and re-
cord-playing tables.
With a staff of nine men help-
Sa s America
Should Abolish
Power Politics
America should take the lead in
approaching an end to power pol-
itics, said William R. Huntington
in a Sunday morning discussion
meeting at Lane Hall.
Huntington, secretary of the
American Russian Relations Com-
mittee of the American Friends
Service Committee, presented his
views on the report of the AFSC
on Soviet American Relations.
HE WAS THE featured speaker
in a weekend institute on "The
United States-Her World Respon-
sibilities" sponsored by the Young
Friends Fellowship.
The AFSC report develops the
thesis that common sense and
Christianity demand we learn
how to live with Russia peace-
fully, Huntington explained.
"Thus far the official attitude
has set up the premise that we
have to fight Russia."
WE SHOULD GO out of our way
to find issues on which we can
agree with her instead of harping
on discordant points just to gain
a victory, he declared.
The United States must not
forget that Russia is just as
suspicious of our using the Unit-
ed Nations for our own pur-
poses as we are of her, he com-
mented.
Huntington said the UN was a
better instrument for dealing with
Russia than direct negotiation, be-
cause "it puts Russia in the posi-
tion where she has to take action
before the whole world."
* * *
WE CAN STRENGTHEN the
UN by trying with other nations
to make it more governmental, he
urged. "If the Security Council
can not agree, it should submit
the matter to the General Assem-
bly rather than let it die by a
veto."

ing him, Kerr looks forward to
a considerable expansion of
WQAR's coverage within a few
weeks, when an attempt will be
made to interchange programs
with a similar station now being
set up in the East Quadrangle.
Also on the fire are plans for
sending programs to several wom-!
en's dorms, in line with an iden-
tical project which worked out
well last year.
"BUT WQAR's primary purpose
is to provide West Quad men with
decent uninterrupted music and
programs without commercials,"
Kerr declared.
On the air from 7 to 12 p.m.
Monday through Friday, WQAR
broadcasts classical music until
ten, and then switches to popu-
lar tunes. On Sundays the New
York Philharmonic is relayed to
Quad men.,
"Our music comesfrom Ann
Arbor's FM and AM stations or
from our own records," Kerr said.
"And we can also pick up and
retransmit short-wave broadcasts,"
he added.
KERR CALLED his station "car-
rier-frequency radio," whereby
programs are transmitted through
one of the Quadrangle's electric
power lines.
All residents need do is plug
their radios into the wall and
turn to 610son their dial to pick
us up," Kerr said.
Every house in the West Quad
can't receive WQAR because some
are on different power lines. But
Kerr expects to bridge these lines
shortly and reach all parts of the
Quad.
"This can have its difficulties
too," Kerr mused. "One time
when we tried this last year they
picked us up over in Ypsilanti."

"CRITICS OF THE 20th century
have been busy tearing down the
doctrine that increased technical
knowledge means aesthetic prog-
ress."
But Renaissance faith in ar-
tistic improvement, whether
well-grounded or not, was re-
sponsible for the "greatest revo-
lution in art" according to Prof.
Gombrich, an authority on the
art of the period.
Painters and sculptors had long
been ranked with manual labor-
ers, he said. "But Renaissance
men held that painting was no
more of a menial pursuit than was
poetry"-that its true value lay
not in manual skill but in the
"divine frenzy" of the artist.
"AND WITH THE idea of prog-
ress, the artist had not only to
think of his commission, but of
his mission--the glory of art it-
self."

Fish Lights Up Ocean
The curious lantern fish creates
its own light as it swims about
the dark depth of the ocean where
it lives by means of organs or
glands that give off light. The
organs look like little pearls. Lan-
tern fishes have little commercial
value, but zoologists find them
very interesting.
