Band To Play Local Citizen's March

Union Board
To Review
Union policy on co-ed use of the
mens club's facilities will get a
general review at the Tuesday
Board of Directors meeting, Union
President Gerald Mehlman, '51,
announced yesterday.
At the Board's session, Mehlman
said, Union Vice-President Wil-
liam Bates will ready a letter from
John Duffey, '51L, proposing that
the Union request a referendum
on the spring election ballot to
test male opinion on co-ed use of
the front door and the cafeteria.
Duffey's letter, parts of which
appeared in Wednesday's Daily,
was originally addressed to the
Student Legislature, Mehlman ex-
However, u p o n consultation
with Duffey and the SL, it was
decided that Bates, Law School
representative on t h e Board,
should first bring the Duffey pro-
posal before the Directors be-
cause, Mehlman pointed o u t,
"Duffey is one of Bates' constitu-
Duffey's suggested questions for
the referendum were these:
1. Should the Union policy of
denying women the use of the
front door be eliminated?
2. Should the Union cafeteria
be open full time to escorted wo-
Union co-ed policy has already'
undergone a major revision this
year on the recommendation of
the Union Liaison Committee with
the approval by the Board. How-
ever these changes, which are on
a trial basis, still limit the hours
during which women can use Un-
ion facilities and leave the front
door rule intact although not rig-
idly enforced.
Union officers will also reveal
the results of an extensive poll
of members' reaction to the ten-
tative revisions.

Schools Will
Hold Festival
The Michigan High School Solo
and Ensemble Festival will be held
here today with approximately
1,500 junior and senior high school
music students from all over the
state participating.
"The purpose of the Festival is
to provide an opportunity for stu-
dents to compare their musical
progress and proficiency with that
of other students of like experi-
ence and training," Prof. William
D. Revelli, chairman of the Fes-
tival, said.
The contests will last from 8
a.m. to 6 p.m. today and will be
held in the League, Union, Bur-

School, University High School

SOME OF the complainants are

A few letters seem to deal
with trivia. One man was irate
because the police department
did not answer phone calls soon
enough. Others -- such as the
one from a person who dis-
covered that he had been pay-

more important.
"We don't get too many letters
from crackpots," Looker said.
"Most are claims against the city
for payment of some sort or re-
quests for city improvements."

AFTER HE checks through the
letters, Looker assigns them to a
spot on the city council's agenda.
Generally they are then assigned
to the proper council committee
or administrative office to be ful-
ly investigated.
To Looker the mail is a never
ending business-he gets about 30
communications for every meeting.
