Men's Glee Club Crashes Hollywood

. . .

. . #

* *

Being in a Hollywood produc-
tion is not as easy as it seems-
at least the Men's Glee Club
thinks so after posing four hours
under a hot sun yesterday for a
Hollywood studio.
Standing on the steps of Clem-
ents Library, and watched by cur-
ious throngs of students while po-
licegen kept order, the Glee Club
sang a series of college songs while
the cameras took both closeups
and back views.
* * V.
THE END RESULT will be a
movie short entitled "Songs of the
Colleges," and will feature the
Glee Club as musical background
with scenes from various colleges
flashed as the appropriate songs
are sung.
The Glee Club has been pre-
paring for the movie for about
two weeks. Each member of the
organization had to learn the
technique of mouthing the
words to a recording, as the
action and the music wil be
done separately, and then syn-
During the day, unexpected
mishaps delayed the shooting.
Some members wearing glasses
-i during one part of the picture
would inadvertently take them off
during another portion. Several
times the Club failed to begin
singing at the correct time, or the
conductor forgot to signal at the
correct beat.
The crooners took a break every
half hour, and amused themselves
between scenes singing to the
spectators who watched from a
roped-off area.
Club members are excited about
Shaw Play
The two final performances of
George Bernard Shaw's "Captain
Brassbound's Conversion" will be

The story centers around a Cleo-

pedition into dark Morocco. It is
the first play of this year's Ann
Arbor Drama Season.
Tickets can still be obtained at
the Lydia Mendelssohn box office.

WHITE BUCK CROONERS-Members of the Men's Glee Club posed and sang before movie cam-
eras yesterday in front of the Clements Memorial Library. The movie short, to be called "Songs
of the Colleges" will be distributed nationally and will feature singing of men's glee clubs from
colleges all over the country. The fiming drew such a crowd of mid-afternoon spectators that po-
lice had to rope off the area.

Teachers' Group Serves as Forum

Grain Plea
Needs More
Failure of the Wheat-for-India
petitions could become a grim
reality if students continue to be-
lieve that their names are no
longer needed on the blanks, Ann
Cotton, '52, Student Religious As-
sociation member, said yesterday.
"The first few days the en-
thusiastic response shown towards
the petition was very encouraging.
But because the Senate recently
passed the wheat bill, students
seem to think that our campus
petition is no longer important.
This is a serious misconception,"
Miss Cotton continued.

primarily designed to combat the
expected opposition in the House,
rather than the Senate, according
to Miss Cotton. The bill is slated to
appear before the House next
"But the students' names are
needed now more than ever. We
don't have much time and the
petitions have to be in the hands
of Speaker Rayburn before Tues-
day," Miss Cotton asserted.
ThedWheat-for-India petition
was drawn up by the Student
Legislature, the Student Religious
Association and the local UNESCO
chapter as a result of a recent trek
to Washington made by SRA mem-
"The number of petitions that
have been turned in since the Sen-
ate approval of the bill has been
practically nil. We urge all stu-
dents who haven't done so, to sign
the petitions and turn them in be-
fore 3 p.m. Monday," Miss Cotton

For 15 years, Local 284 of the
American Federation of Teachers,
an AFL union, has been unob-
trusively functioning on campus.
A handful of well-known faculty
members and Ann Arbor school
teachers have formed the cadre for
the organization. Membership
reached a high of about 50 in 1948,
but has since shrunk.
* * *
BECAUSE of its size, the union
has always served in Ann Arbor
merely as a forum for discussion
of teaching problems and methods.
Occasionally, the group acts as an
informal pressure group for bet-
tering teaching conditions, but it
does this chiefly through other
faculty organizations.
The Board of Regents has
never been obliged to take a

stand one way or the other on
the existence of the union. How-
ever, the union has at times un-
officially represented the faculty
to the Administration, and has.
always been received graciously,
according to Prof. Albert K.
Stevens of the English depart-
ment, secretary of the Ann Arbor
The union does not intend to act
as a collective bargaining agent,
Prof. Stevens explained. The Board
of Regents is forbidden by the
Hutchison Act and other laws to
enter into contracts wth unions.
"WE ARE NOW a sort of philo-
sophical club, a generating plant
for ideas which other, more power-
ful groups can take up and put
into effect," Prof. Stevens asserted.
The group officially arrived on

Brings Enthusiastic Response

campus during the 1935-36
academic year, after about a
year of quietly organizing. It
grew to a peak of strength in
1940, then was inactive during
the war years.
In 1946, the group again flow-
ered forth with renewed vigor, en-
listing 50 members by 1948. But
then the tide turned-the national
charter lapsed in 1949.
After two bleak years as an un-
affiliated local, the charter was
again renewed last fall.
Prominent among the members
are Prof. Shirley Allen of the
School of Natural Resources, Prof.
Wesley Maurer of the journalism
department, Prof. Preston Slosson
of the history department, Prof.
John P. Dawson of the Law School,
Prof. Claude Eggertsen of the edu-
cation school and Prof. Emeritus
John Shepherd, formerly of the
psychology department. President
of the local is Prof. John Arthos
of the English department.
The national organization,
AFT, was organized in 1916. The
teachers decided to associate
with the labor movement because
labor had always been the
strongest and most militant sup-
porter of teachers in their strug--
gle for better condifions, Prof.
Stevens said.
"The affiliation with AFL was
an accident of history," he said.
"AFL was the only union existing
when we affiliated, although CIO
has also been friendly to us and
supported us in the showdowns,"
he commented. -
Use of the strike and the other
usual labor weapons dre frowned
upon by the national organization.
Teachers' strikes, such as the one
in Buffalo several years ago, are
not endorsed or supported by the
The union is strong at colleges
like Harvard and Chicago, Prof.
Stevens reported. In Michigan,
other colleges where the union is
organized are Lawrence Tech,
Wayne, Ypsilanti, Michigan State
and junior colleges in Bay City,
Flint, Highland Park, Muskegon
and Dearborn.

Although four out of five coeds
have never met their ideal man,
they can still have a bang up time

In a survey conducted recently

asked to depict their ideal men.
Reactions ranged from puzzled
surprise to downright enthusi-

Surprisingly enough, the ideal

and not excessively handsome.
The women seemed to feel that
an Adonis-like character would
be too attractive to others.
Nine coeds out of the 50 said
they had found their ideal man.
One is engaged to him, one is pin-
ned, four are going steady and
the remaining three are "just
friends." One nearly-engaged co-
ed, bemoaning the fact that her
affiliate had not yet popped the
question, said that she wished fra-
