THE MICHIGAN DAILY

FRIDAY, MARCH 2, I

Concert Will
Be Given at
Hil Sunday
Rafael Kubelik, conductor of
the Chicago Symphony Orchestra,
will mount the podium at 8:30 p.-
m. Sunday in Hill Auditorium to
bring Ann Arbor music-goers
works that have not been publi-
cly performed here for 'a long
time.
Dvorak's "Symphony No. 1 in
D major, Op. 60," one of the works
the Chicago group will play, has
not been heard in a Choral Union
Series concert since 1909.
Two other numbers to be
presented will be first perform-
ances in the concert series. They
are "Overture to 'The School for
Scandal'." by Samuel Barber, the
opening number and "Four Tem-
peraments" by Hindemith, con-
temporary German-born compos-
er.
The other number on the pro-
gram will be "Overture to 'Die
Meistersingers.' -
"Overture to 'The School for
Scandal' " by the contemporary
Pennsylvania - born composer,
Samuel Barber, was composed in
1932. Barber won the Pulitzer
Prize for music in 1935 and again
in 1936.
He was also the winner of the
Prix de Rome in 1935. This prize
enabled him to study two years
in Italy.
Tickets for the concert may be
purchased at the University Mu-
sical Society offices in Burton
Tower and at the Hill Auditorium
box-office one hour prior to the
performance.

Good?"
- Those taking part in the panel
discussion will include Prof. Frank
X. Braun, of the German depart-
ment; Prof. Alfred M. Elliott, of
the Zoology department; Prof.
Phillip S. Jones, of the mathema-
tics department; Prof. Wilbert J..
McKeachie, of the psychology de-
partment; and Prof. William B.

UNION TO WELCOME COEDS:
Activity Carnival Slated for Sunday

By ZANDER HOLLANDER
That double-barreled formula-
mixing business with pleasure--
will get a workout in an all-cam-
pus Activities Carnival at 7:30
p.m. Sunday in the Union Ball-
room.
The Carnival, a Union and
League-sponsored affair, will pre-
sent University men and women
with comprehensive information
about 23 leading campus organi-
zations and the opportunities they
offer.
* * *
BUT ALONG with this business-
end of the evening, the Carnival
will feature plenty of pleasure in
the form of dancing in the Ter-
race Room along with several per-
formers from Gulantics and the
Union Opera.
Topping the entertainment
list, will be Gulantics first-prize-
winner Russ Cristopher, '53, a

versatile baritone with profes-
sional polish.
With Cristopher, the evening
will feature the nilarious routines
of Al Jackson, '51, and George
Boucher, '51, comedy team of last
year's opera. Jackson will prob-
ably do a wacky routine which
took second prize in Gulantics
based on a camera's-eye-view of
the wild-blue-yonder men.
The program will also present
excerpts from Union Operas, stag-
ed by director Bill Holbrook. Still
questionable is whether the rou-
tines from this year's "Go West
Madam" will be in good enough
shape for the Carnival.
* * *
THIS YEAR'S Activities Carni-
val marks a change from previous
affairs. It is the first such event
to be coed - both in patronage
and in participating organizations.

Represented in the Carnival for
the first time are the League, Pan
Hell and Assembly.
"In short," Union Councilman
Jim Moran, '52, explained, "we
want women at this Carnival."
The "business" part of this
year's Carnival will follow the pat-
tern set by its predecessors, with
each activity setting up a booth in
the ballroom. Students will cir-
culate from booth to booth where
they will learn about the activi-
ties of all 23 organizations from
The Daily to the Student Legisla-
ture.
Here prospective BMOC's (and
women) will be able to sign up for
the activities in which they ex-
pect to carve their hitch. They
will be aided in their choice by a
pamphlet, put together by the
Union, outlining the work of each
group.

Garg Girl' Aspirant

Violin Recital
Will Be Held
At Rachham
The second in a series of the
recitals presenting the Ten Sona-
tas for Violin and Piano by Bee-
thoven will be given at 8:30 p.m.
today in Rackham Lecture Hall.
These ten sonatas, which repre-
sent Beethoven's entire output in
the area of the sonata, have rarely
been performed in a single series
of concerts.
In Ann Arbor they were pre-
sented last in 1942 by the same
performers who will play them
today, Prof. Gilbert Ross, violinist,
and Prof. Emeritus Mabel Rhead
Field, pianist.
Today's program will include:
"Sonata in A major, Op. 30, No.
1," composed in 1802 and dedi-
cated to Alexander I. Emperor of
Russia; "Sonata in E-flat major,
Op. 12, No. 3," composed in 1800;
"Sonata in A minor, Op. 23," also
composed in 1800; and "Sonata
in G major, Op. 30, No. 3," com-
posed in 1802.
The last concert of the all-Bee-
thoven series will be presented at
8:30 p.m. Tuesday in Rackham
Lecture Hall.

SL Suggests
Early Voting
For J-Hop
A motion to have the members
of the J-Hop Committee elected
in the spring instead of the fall
was formulated at a special Stu-
dent Legislature Organizational
Committee meeting yesterday.
The motion, which will be voted
on at the SL meeting next Wed-
nesday, was made after Don Dow-
nie, chairman of this year's J-Hop
Committee urged that future J-
Hop Committees be chosen dur-
ing the school year preceding the
dance.
IT IS ESSENTIAL that the
Committee have more time to
plan the mid-year affair than it
does under the present set-up, he
said.
Usually formed in November,
the Committee generally has
great difficulty in lining up top-
rate bands on such short notice.
Since all the other aspects of
the dance are dependent on how
much the fees of the bands will
be, the Committee's hands are
tied until the bands are con-
tacted, Downie pointed out.
"For instance, we do not know
how much to spend for favors un-
til we know what the bands will
cost," he asserted.
- * * * .
ANOTHER advantage of having
the Committee formed in the
spring is that the new committee
would meet with the old commit-
tee, which will have just recently
completed its work.
New members could get some
pointers from the experienced
committee members while the
dance planning problems were
still fresh in their minds, Downie
said.
Also prepared at the meeting
was a motion that would change
the system of election of J-Hop
Committees from the Hare sys-
tem to a straight all X-Ballot.
This would mean that the votes
for the nine persons selected on
a ballot would all carry the same
weight.
Under the Hare system of pro-
portional representation the weight
that a vote carries is staggered,
depending on the place given the
vote on the ballot.

Mail orders for tickets to any,
of the three Union Opera per-
formances of "Go West-Madam"
on March 28, 29, or 30 are now'
being accepted.
Checks and mail orders should.
specify the date desired and
should be addressed to: Michigan
Union Opera, Michigan Union. }
Ticket prices are $2.40; $1.80 and
$1.20. Orders will be recorded ac-,
cording to date received.
Because of the heavy alumni
demands for the tickets, students-
were urged by Opera officials to
place their orders immediately toy
assure themselves of good seats.
Dormitory groups ' desiring a
block of seats together may ob- *
tain them by ordering now.
School Initiates,
County Home
A ccident _tudy
A study of the number, kind and
causes of home accidents in
Washtenaw County will be under-
taken by the School of Public
Health, Dean Henry F. Vaughan,
announced yesterday.
The study, sponsored by a $29,-..
160 grant from the United States
Public Health Service, will be di-
rected by Prof. Clarence J. Velz,Y
chairman of the department. of
public health statistics.
An interview program. which
will reach approximately 3,000
county residents is slated to begini
about March 12, Prof. Velz said.
The Survey Research Center has
aided the School of Public Health-
in setting up the interview proce-.
dure.,
Home accidents in the United
States are increasing as a cause
of death and severe disability, but4
adequate information to measure
the extent of disaster is not pre-,
sently available, Prof. Velz ex-
plained.
"Comprehensive home accident
statistics just don't exist," he said.
Dr. Otto K. Engelke, county,
health commission pointed out
that "before any preventive mea-
sures can be taken to reduce the.
incidence and severity of home
accidents, public health officials
need the type of information that
the forthcoming study will pro-
vide."

SL Issues SOS for People
To Staff Secretariat Off ice

-Daily-Ed Kozma
SHOULD I ENTER?-A doubtful coed wonders what her chances
of capturing the title of "Garg Girl" are as she gazes thoughtfully
into the mirror and compares her qualifications with those of
past "Garg Girls."
This is the last day for women and men tosend photos nomi-
nating coeds for the title. Bob Uchitelle, elditor, says that although
many beauties have already been entered, the staff is anxious to
have a large sample from which to choose their "Girl."

HOT JOURNALISM:
Fast-Burning Daily Hits Top
In Paper Combustibility Test

"The mail must go through,"
the Student Legislature's Corres-
ponding Secretary Phil Berry, as-
serted.
"But it won't unless we get more
student secretaries to work for
our Secretariat," Berry lamentful-
ly added.
IT HAS BEEN the policy of the
Secretariat to answer all of the
hundreds of pieces of correspon-
dence that the SL receives during
a semester,, but it is currently be-
ing tied up by a shortage of se-
cretaries, Berry said.
Berry finds this very difficult
to understand. "There is no bet-
ter opportunity on campus for
women who want to participate
in an extra-curricular activity
than by becoming an SL secre-
tary," he said. "Our secretaries
work whenever they can, and
they find the work educational
and revealing."
For instance, secretaries are
able to see the varied and inter-
esting assortment of mail which
SL receives daily from points all
over the country.
The Secretariat is now working
on a request from a Wyoming high
school which has requested a live
wolverine.
ANOTHER ODD request was

recently received from a Univer-
sity of Oklahoma student song
writer who wants SL to help put
his new song on the hit parade.
The Secretariat does not limit
itself to mail, however. One of
its most recent projects is a 43
page brief on the history and
background of the SL motion
which set a time limit for the
removal of fraternity bias
clauses. Services like this will
have to be limited, however, Ber-
ry explained, unless the Secre-
tariat gets more help.
Students interested in becom-
ing secretaries should come over
to the SL Building, 122 S. Forest
any afternoon, he said.

Read Daily

Classifieds

By CAL SAMRA
If the results of a recent burn-
ing spree are valid, The Daily
would be a boon to freezing Lon-
don householders.
Applying matches yesterday to
various American newspapers,
Daily staff members found that
The Daily stands among the fast-
est burning papers in the country.
It burns in 36 seconds, a mark
much lower than those of other
newspapers tested.

That's cycling with a RALEIGH 3-speed lightweight-the bicycle
designed to make this grand outdoor sport more fun than ever
before!

Several sympathizers with the
paperdisagreed and kindled a
controversy whichi continues to
rage in the Letters to the Editors
columns.
* * *
ACCORDING to The Daily staff
members who carried out yester-
day's test, the burning of other
newspapers-in seconds-were:
Christian Science Monitor,
91; New York Times, 71; St.
Louis Post-Dispatch, 58; Detroit
Free Press, 58; Chicago Daily
Tribune, 57; and New York Her-
ald Tribune, 47.
Prior to The Daily test, The New
York Times had conducted a test
of its own and discovered that
The London Times burned as rap-
idly as The Times itself. Accord-
ing to The Daily test, this means
a poor .time of 71 seconds.
