'U' HALL RENOVATED:
Sculpturings Removed
From Ancient Building

By DON KOTITE
Plaster cast moldings, half-fin-
ished statues, bronze plaques and
a metal chute all figured yesterday
in completion of a major Univer-
sity task-clearing out remains of
once proud "U" Hall's trappings.
All that's left is carting away
i. to the city dump tons of scry p
that had accumulated in third and
fourth floor sculpture studios, un-
used since 1947.
THAT YEAR marked the de-
parture from campus of Prof.
Avard Fairbanks, a member of the
Arts Chorale
Meets Tonight
Any student who has had prev-
ious experience in choral singing
is eligible for the Michigan Arts
Chorale, which will meet at 7 p.m.
today in Rm. B, Haven Hall.
The choir, under the direction
of Maynard Klein, of the Music
School, will study secular and re-
ligious choral music of three cen-
turies, from 16th century motets
through to modern choral pieces.
Contrary to last year, the Chor-
ale will be open to any student in
the University, including music
students. Rehearsals for a concert
Now. 29 will begin today, Klein
said.
Other concerts and perhaps ra-
dio broadcasts will be discussed at
the meeting, he added.
'U' Choir To Sing
Mozart Requiem
Something unusual in choral
. singing will occur at 3:45 p.m. to-
day at Hill Auditorium, when the
University Choir, Maynard Klein,
conductor, will rehearse Mozart's
Requiem in an open "laboratory
session."
The lab is open to any student
interested in music. Access to Hill
Auditorium will be through the
stage doors:

sculpture department from 1929
on.
He used upper floor rooms
and the auditorium in much the
same way a Greenwich Village
sculptor would line his basement
apartment with artistic oddities.
Answering a teaching call at the
University of Utah, Prof. Fair-
banks packed up everything but
his statues and molds, which until
this summer remained unseen ex-
cept by curious Plant Service
workers.
* * *
PREVIOUSLY, Prof. Fairbanks
had presented several local ex-
hibitions of his sculpture, in con-
junction with the University.
It took laborers' crews all
summer to dismantle the studios,
and with the aid of a three-story-
long chute, the final load of plas-
ter busts and statues of weeping
nudes yesterday sped to oblivion.
The vacated stories will stay
closed mainly because of pre-
vailing fire hazards, supervisor
Paul Bowyer said.
Work on the rest of "U" Hall
will be completed "sometime this
week," Bowyer declared. Definite
plans have been made to move
Survey Research facilities to the
refurbished first and second floors,
in the near future, he said.

He explained that salaries paid
