'Free Man' Society's

Tank A ids Strays


* '

"The goal of society is to attain
the free life of man," Prof. Robert
M. MacIver declared in his com-
parison of democracy and socializ-
ed economy.
In his fourth lecture in the Cook
series, Prof. MacIver asserted that
contrary to many beliefs socialism
and capitalism are merely means
to attain that goal. He spoke in
Rackham Lecture Hall yesterday.

cratic a n d socialistic systems,
Prof. MacIver noted that the
democratic process of first at-
taining authority from the con-
sensus of the people and from that
authority gaining power, is revers-
ed in a socialist state. In that type
of state the government first as-
sumes power, derives, its author-

Exotic Dance Steps To Have
Premiere Here in 'Gondoliers'

Three Venetian-inspired dance
steps, the cachuca, fandango and
bolero will receive their Ann Ar-
bor premiere when the Gilbert and
Sullivan Society's production of
"Gondoliers" opens Dec. 13.
The cachuca, originally a Vene-
tian folk-dance, was resurrected
by Gilbert when writin- the li-
bretto for the twin-mixup plot laid
in Venice. On stage at Pattengill

erwise, from the people.
Modern socialism bases its
case upon two major pleas, he
First, that gross inequality of
opportunity, wealth and power
exists in democracy, because that
power is concentrated in a small
elite group, and that modern ca-
pitalistic society is unable to meet
the demands of modern existence.
"Total equality cannot exist,"
MacIver conceded, "but the duty
of democracy is to extend equity
as much as possible."
HE EXPLAINED that in a soc-
ialistic planned economy, equality
of opportunity is impossible be-
cause all power is concentrated at
one source, the government.
There is a definite distinction
between the so-called welfare state
and a socialistic state, he pointed
"It is proper for the govern-
ment to protect the health and
welfare of the people, but not
to take over everything," he as-
serted. "There is a great differ-
ence between regulating and tak-
ing control."
"In contrast to p l a n n e d
economy," MacIver declared that
"Democracy is always aspiring and
never quite attaining--and that is
the way of all life."
Prof. Mac Iver will conclude the
series with a lecture titled "Con-

chorus will put in the Venetian
atmosphere with a double-suffle
hip twist.
This particular maneuver re-
quired hours of practice to per-
fect, since neither the modern
rhumba nor tango provided the
proper background for learning
the twist Instead of simply
leaning on one hip, dancers had
to take a step at the same time.
Catastrophes during the learn-
ing processwere frequent because
many of the dancers could not
twist and step at the same time
without landing in undignified
postures on the floor.
cacies of the cachuca, the group
tackled the fandango. This was
the antecedent of the rhumba, so
the participants considered it
would be a snap. ,
They had not realized that
coreographer Jimmie Lopaugh,
'51 SM, decided that some new
angles should be added. The fan-
dango, as he planned it will be
executed by the dancing chorus
rhumbaing in a straight line
backed up by the 50-man regu-
lar chorus.
It will break naturally into the
bolero, which will be a combina-
tion of the two steps. The hip-
twist will be used as the indivi-
dual dancers circle their partners
in traditional rhumba fashion.
This will all be according to pre-
vious Gilbert and Sullivan tradi-
tion which demands that the en--
tire stage be filled with cavorting
couples during the finale of the

night run Dec. 13 in the Patten-

THE SERVICE, which began}
last year, got off to a fast start
this semester with the task of'
providing rides for Thanksgiving'
vacation and the Columbus
weekend. Over 100 students were{
fixed up with transportation to all
parts of the East and Midwest.
"The biggest need," according
to co-director Jack Ehlers '53,
"is for drivers to Pasadena.t
Would - be drivers or riders
should fill out cards in the Un-
ion lobby and drop them in the
boxes beneath the map of their
geographic goal."
Prospective drivers are so much
in demand, Ehlers added, that if
they can't get over to the Union
they may call 2-4431 and their
names will be listed anyway.
GOING ON past experience, co-
director Mervyn Manning, said
said that drivers to New York, Chi-
cago, and Cleveland would prob-
ably be in short supply.
"It's a good deal," they decid-
ed. "There's no cost to riders ex-
cept their share of driving ex-
penses. And the drivers get
chance to cut their traveling
costs and have some company to

Chorale is a non-credit choir com-
posed of students from ten -col-

great choral music. Only through
such groups, according to Prof.
Klein, can the great amount'of
vocal talent on campus be some-
what satisfied.
The selection of music for Arts
Chorale is based on the same pat-
tern used by the University Choir.

concert is the first Ann Arbor per-
formance of Benjamin Britten's
"Hymn to St. Celilia" and an ex-

Chalmers asserted that the basic
issue between Soviet Communism
and the free peoples of the world
rests on these two values.
* * *
"THE REAL ISSUE between the
United States and Russia is a
moral one-that of the concept
of the individual," President Chal-
mers declared.
The Communist regards the
individual as a "means" to be
controlled by the government,
which is the "end." On the oth-
er hand, here in the United
States the dignity of the indivi-
dual is the chief object of the
government, Chalmers added.
"In thisbcountry, majority rule,
tempered by justice, is the aim of
our government," the college pres-
ident said.
"The only means we have of un-
derstanding other peoples is to
gain an understanding ofhtheir
language and the best that has
been said in it," he added.
This of course entails a study
of their literature, which should
go as deep as their best poet, phi-
losopher or saint has gone.
What is important in our
schools is that we teach students
how to think, not what to think,
Chalmers concluded.
