STREET SCENES AIRED:

On-Spot Reporter Returns
- - - -

By VERNON EMERSON
The man on the street is back.
And the man responsible for his
return-locally at least-is WU-
OM's on-the-spot-reporter, Bill
Hill.
* * *
ALTHOUGH national radio
hook-ups are once more airing
programs designed to bring the
listener the news as it happens,
Hill is the only one to try out such
programs in the Ann Arbor area.
"We believe our listeners
would rather hear the people
who are making the news rath-
er than one of our staffmen
reading it," Hill said.
Whenever anything that ap-
pears to be newsworthy occurs,
Hill shoulders his portable record-
ing outfit and sets out to inter-
view those involved on the spot.
MOST OF his work is a little
more leisurely, however. "Much of
the material I use is for feature
stories, such as interviews with
interesting people and those in
the know about current news," he
said.
Hill has used everyone from
modern furniture experts to
steeplejacks on his weekly news
show. He gets his tips for stor-
ies from local papers, friends
and by just' keeping his eyes
open.
The reporter's biggest job is
getting his interviews in shape for
his 15-minute broadcast over WU-
OM-WPAG at 4 p.m. every Wed-
nesday. Before some interviewees
settle down to a normal conver-
sation on a subject, Hill may have
to record yards of tape.
Then he faces the job of cut-,
ting the talk so that it will
squeeze into its proper spot on
the program.
Hill still regrets that the pro-
gram wasn't in existence before
last spring when Haven Hall
burned down. "That would have
been perfect for an on-the-scene
broadcast," he mourned.
But since then Hill has swung
the program into shape so that
now it keeps him on the jump
from one week to the next.

torium.
Or at least so says Richard
Kraus, manager of the Student
Legislature's Cinema Guild, who
claims that he is staking what
amounts to his life-a goodly por-
tion of the Guild's liquid assets-
on the probability that local audi-
ences will agree with him.

THE IS THE first time the film,
winner of the 1950 Venice Film
Prize, has been shown in this coun-
try outside New York, where it re-
cently completed a long run. "I
really had to mortgage my soul to
get it," he declared, indicating that
he was banking on Cocteau's art
to draw the customers in. He cited
instances of its universal appeal:
For motorcycle enthusiasts,
there are numerous shots of the
classic fates roaring across the
countryside on motorcycles.
For the women, there is Jean
Marais who has previously proved
his male magnetism in Cocteau's{
"Beauty and the Beast."
For mystery lovers, there are
cryptic messages to decode.
For travel lovers, the road to hell
is painstakingly mapped out.
For the men there is Maria
Cesares, lush vamp.

Pwlowskis
Death Loss
To Aviation
Death of Prof. Felix Pawlowski
of the engineering college ended
the career of a "pioneer in avia-
tion and aeronautical engineer-
ing," according to his colleague-
Prof. Wilbur Nelson.
Prof. Pawlowski's death Feb. 17
in Pau, France, was announced by
engineering college officials yes-
terday. He retired in 1946 as pro-
fessor emeritus after 33 years in
the aeronautical engineering de-
partment.
. Prof. Nelson termed Prof. Paw-
lowski "one of the outstanding
members of the college."
"He and the University pioneer-
ed with the first course leading to
a degree in aeronautical engineer-
ing," Prof. Nelson remarked.
"Prof. Pawlowski was one of the
'early birds' a small group of avi-
ators who flew before 1910."
"Prof. Pawlowski was an inter-
nationally recognized authority in
his field and an honored member
of many American and English
scientific societies," Prof. Nelson
said.

TOP FOREIGN FILM-Jean Marais of "Beauty and the Beast"

For saddists and philistines there
is a prolonged sequence of a poet
being run down by a motorcycle
cavalcade.
And above all, Kraus stressed,
for entertainment lovers, there is
one of the most interesting and
controversial movies of the year.
Cocteau, poet and dramatist
turned film producer, uses novel
techniques in photography and

direction which have made him
the center of heated controver-
sies in the past. "The Eternal
Return," a modernization of the
Tristan and Isolde legend stirred
such a debate several years ago
and there have been sharp criti-
cisms mingled with the. general
acclaim accorded his latest sally
into the real mof antique legend
in "Orpheus."

'GREAT DEBATE':
Voting Controversy Continues
'As J-Hop System Changes

Read and Use
Daily Classifieds

_

By CHUCK ELLIOTT
The controversial question of
voting systems cropped up in the
Student Legislature again this
week, as the J-Hop Committee
elections were changed to the
straight nine-X system.
For the past tew elections, the
SL has been rotating systems, in
an effort to determine the best
one. The Hare system, as is used
for choosing Legislature members,
seemed to be most favored in the
J-Hop race as well.
* * *
BY THIS system, a voter places
a number after the name of a can-
didate, in order of preference.
Then, when the votes are counted
tabulation goes according to the
marks on the ballot.
However, at the SL meeting, it
'Magie Flute'
to Play T oday
"The Magic Flute" will be per-
formed again at 8 p.m. today in
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Tickets for today's performance
may be purchased at the theatre
box office, which will be open from
10 a.m. until curtain time. How-
ever, officials announced that all
tickets for tomorrow night have
been sold.
Tickets are still available for the
two performances of the opera on
Monday and Tuesday nights. Spe-
cial student tickets, costing 75
cents, may be purchased for these
last two nights.

was moved that the Hare system
be discarded in favor of a plain
X plan, in which each voter
would mark nine candidates.
A good deal of the debate on the
issue centered on block voting.
Tom Walsh, Grad., longtime SL
member, blasted the proposal on
the grounds that straight X vot-
ing encourages organized groups
pushing certain candidates into of-
fice.
* * *
"VOTE TRADING is made much
simpler; it is almost impossible for
a single candidate to get into of-
fice by campaigning on his own.
He must ally himself with other
candidates in order to effectively
campaign," Walsh explained.
However, Pris Ball, '51, legisla-
tor who supported the change,
minimized the danger of block
voting. Saying that vote trad-
ing can go on just as easily with
the Hare system, Miss Ball re-
marked "I don't believe that
people block vote much anymore
anyway. It's gone out."
Walsh pointed out that the Hare
system makes for a more repre-
sentative committee, because each
voter's ballot goes eventually to a
single candidate. "Therefore, his
vote counts for more."
It was countered that "represen-
tation is not so important on the
J-Hop Committee. The idea is to
elect a group of capable people,
who will do a good job. Just be-
cause you vote the Publicity chair-
man into office doesn't mean that
you are voting for a good J-Hop
committee," Miss Ball said.
