TOURS WORLD AT 15:
Ann Arbor Youth Makes
Iran Expedition With Dad
Tricks of Cheerleading Trade
TougherThan Throng Thinks
By ROZ VIRSHUP
Half way around the world on
an expedition is a unique exper-
ience for any teen-ager, according
to Tom Cameron who accom-
panied his father, Prof. George
Cameron of the near east studies
department on a trip to Iran.
Tom, who is 15 years old, wil
describe the highspots of the six
month archaelogy expedition on
"Junior Junctioni," a nation-wide
teen-agers program broadcast at
10:30 a.m. today station WHRV:
TOM WAS chosen as the out-
standing young person in Ann Ar-
bor to be interviewed on the vari-
ety show which originates in Chi-
The program will be switched
to Ann Arbor for the interview.
Tom, a sophomore at University
High School had never been much
further than Ann Arbor when his
father was sent by the University
to read an inscription on the
ancient Rosetta Stone in western
Asia last January.
IN AN INTERVIEW with The
Daily Tom told how his father
took a rubber compound impres-
sion of the inscription written by
Darius about 500 B.C.
Written in three languages
the inscription was described by
Tom as a boastful account of
the Persian warrior's victories.
The Iranian government is very
careful to see that the inscription
is guarded against alteration or
damage by making it inaccessible
to the public, according to Tom.
"ALTHOUGH my father was al-
lowed to go up and read it and
make impressions, he was watched
very carefully by government of-
Queried on his own part in
the expedition, he confessed
that he had "helped" his dad.
But his personal ambitions lie
in another direction.

Last Night For
German Fi lm
The German film "Somewhere
In Berlin" with English sub-titles
will conclude a three-night en-
gagement at 8:30 p.m. today at
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The story gives an inside
glimpse of the situation in Ger-
many today through the eyes of
the main character of the film,. a
German veteran. Although de-
spondent at first over the destruc-
tion of his home, he gets back his
old job and gradually finds hope
for a bright future.
Tickets for the film may be
purchased from 2-6 p.m. or at
showtime at the Lydia Mendels-
sohn box office.
The Greeks Had A Word
Aristocracy to the ancient

Flash cards-at least 2,000 of

A MINIMUM of 2,000 cards is

ing to Joe Jender, flash card di-
rector for the club.
These cards, yellow on one
side and blue the other, will
boast metallic lustre finishes as
well as .coiplete shellac coat-
ings, Jender said.
As part "f its extensive publi-
city campaign, the Wolverine
Club has been soliciting aid from

and personal contacts.

SEVERAL contributions have
come in, but because of inter-
ference with the Phoenix Project

dicated they can't afford both,"
A school record album, pat-
terned after the "I Can Hear It

lights from recent world fvents,
will be an important source of
revenue, he expects.
Sponsored by the club, this al-
bum will feature recorded ex-
cerpts from campus shows, pep
rallies and top football games of
the current school year.
A contest has been planned to
find a "catchy" title for the al-
bum, the first record of which

NEARLY 20 universities have
been contacted on the problem-

Jender predicted that "if our

FLASH CARDS TO RETURN:
Wo lveritne Club Starts Fund Drive
By DAVIS CRIPPEN
There's more than meets the
ear behind leading cheers, accord-
ing to Dave Lake, '50E, head of
the University cheerleaders.
"For instance," Lake said yes-
terday, "more noise with less ef-
fort is made by yelling 'rah' in-
stead of 'fight'."
* * *
DISCOVERY of this fact caused
the cheering squad to overhaul
one of their cheers. They changed
the Fight Locomotive Cheer to
the Rah Locomotive.
Prof. Emeritus Thomas C.
Trueblood, inventor of the cheer,
was the one who gave them the
word on the point.
"We tested, and sure enough, it
was true," Lake declared. But it's
not only what the cheerleaders
yell that counts, how they move
while they're doing the yelling is
* * *
THE MOTIONS have to be
jerky, but not short or jerky.
"After all," he explained, "we
have to be seen 90 rows up in the
Then there's the problem of
introducing a new cheer, Lake
continued. "We work, first of
all, through the pep rallies and
with the cards we hold up, but
we have another aid you might
not think of.
"The band," he said. "I don't
want to offend anyone, but they're
our best cheering section. If we
can get the band started on a
cheer, it'll spread from there up
through the stands."
HE WASN'T trying to say that
the band was doing most of the
cheering, though. "The cheering
this year has been good," he said
happily, "especially at the Min-
nesota game. The fans really out-
did themselves then."
There was just one other
cheerleading secret he hadn't
divulged. "All of us on the
squad," he confided, "are not
"We've been fooling the stu-
dents all these years," he said,
but added sadly that their "sin'
had caught up with them.

ably could make the squad haven't

Besides not knowing these
trade secrets, Lake felt that
some students didn't understand
what the cheerleaders were try-
ing to do with the techniques.
"Of course we're there to lead
cheers, but at the same time we're
trying to express the feelings of
the crowd as they would if they
were physically able," he ex-
