By CAL SAMRA
Loyalty oaths, charges of Com-
munism, and student puns on the
present war situation highlighted
the news from the nation's cam-
puses last week.
- * *s
AT THE University of Colorado
the board of regents ruled that all
faculty members would be re-
quired to take the state teachers
oath, indorsed the investigation
of one professor, and appointed a
"qualified individual to investi-
gate reports of subversive indi-
viduals on campus."
President of the university,
_Robert L. Stearns, attempted to
placate the faculty with the
following announcement: "I am
Instructed by the Regents to say
that they have all confidence in
the loyalty and integrity of the
University faculty and are con-
cerned only with possible excep-
tions. .
No outburst arose, as had mark-
ed the University of California
faculty-regent fracas, but the next
day a vast majority of the staff
had quietly acquiesced and signed
the oath. -
* * *
MEANWHILE, two large mid-
west universities-Minnesota and
Northwestern-were charged by
state politicians with providing a
haven for Communists.
One columnist for the Daily
'U' Hostel Club
To HoldRally
The University Hostel Club, in co-
operation with the Ann Arbor City
Council, will hold a rally and dis-
play at 7:30 p.m. today in Lane
Mall.
There will be talks by local hos-
telers, slides of hostel trips and
hostel equipment on display. Those
attending will also be able to ob-
tain the latest information about
summer trips, according to Dave
Smith, '51, president of the Club.
"Hosteling is not only for ex-
perts, but for all outdoor enthusi-
asts," Smith said in urging any-
one interested in hiking, skiing or
biking to attend the rally.
Hopwood Winner
To Open Thursday
"Hanlon Won't Go," Hopwood
Prize winning play, will be pre-
sented by the Student Players at
8 p.m., Feb. 22, 23 and 24, in the
Lydia Mendelssol Theatre.
Tickets may be purchased begin-
Wing tomorrow at the Lydia Men-
delssonn box-office for 75 cents
and cre dollar.
The play deals with the spiritual
regencratwn of a young alcohiic>,
who is aided by the sympathy and
understanding of a barmaid.

Northwestern, campus paper,
was plainly amused and shot
back, "Really, gentlemen, you
aren't serious? Oh, there may
be a Communist on campus.
I've never heard of one.
"There may be one in the ad-
ministration. But I suspect he's
as rare as a Republican who rel-
ishes singing the 'Missouri Waltz'
at a chamber of commerce ban-
quet."
AT THE University of Minne-
sota, the Minnesota Daily dug up
an interesting news article date-
lined April 7, 1917. The article
led off:
"Undergraduates were urged
today to continue their studies
at the University, in spite of the
fact that the United States has
formally declared war on Ger-
many." A regent had made this
plea.
And college officials continued
to echo similar quieting pleas last
week, as student morale contin-
ued to sag. In fact, a New York
Times survey indicated that fac-
ulty morale had also reached a
low ebb.
One editorialist in a West Coast
campus paper epitomized his feel-
ings with: "Yes, democracy is still
worth dying for, but it is worth
infinitely more living for."
* * *
ON THE LIGHTER side, Har-
vard University was also having
trouble with a suspected pyro-
maniac, who had supposedly set
a series of mysterious blazes on
the campus square. At Washing-
ton University five men and a
dog were vying in an "Ugly Man
on Campus" contest. Competent
sources claimed that the dog did-
n't have a chance.
AteNorthwestern, students were
invited to attend a puppet per-
formance of Goethe's "Faust."
The Daily Northwestern carried
the following announcement on
the performance: "For 50 cents
you can watch Faustus go to
hell " .
What's Up
In the Dorms
(Any Items of interest from any
dormitory, cooperative or other hous-
ing group should be submitted to
Judy Lager at The Daily, 2-3241, or at
3-0715.)
Beginning today, 500 Stockwell
Hall women will have the oppor-
tunity to enjoy music, sports re-
views, and late news releases
broadcast from the East Quad-
rangle radio station, WEQN, Sun-
day through Friday from noon to
midnight.
Having previously broadcast
only to men in the East Quad-
rangle, the dormitory-controlled
radio station hopes eventually to
extend its services to all dormi-
tory and housing groups. The in-
stallation of a radio transmitter
in the basement of Stockwell Hall
is the first step in this direction.
In order to familiarize the wom-
en with the radio station, an open
house will be held for Stockwell
Hall at the East Quadrangle to-
day.

By DAVIS CRIPPEN
Being the house man in a fra-
ternity during the afternoon and
an actor in the evening would
probably be a tall order for most
people, but Al "Wildcat" Wall,
who's going to do just that for
two weeks, thinks he'll be able
to take it all in his stride.
For the past five years, ever
since their house opened after
the war, Wall has been the por-
ter and the unofficial valet for
the brothers of Phi Gamma Delta.
On February 27 he'll make his
professional acting debut playing
one of the main parts in the Arts
Theatre Club's production of Jean
Paul Sartre's "The Retpectable
Prostitute."
, * ,
T H E CONFIDENCE of the
stubby, middle-aged Wall seems
well-founded for he seems to have
run the gamut in jobs. Born in
Oberlin, Ohio he left after one
year in Oberlin College to get
married.
At the same time he started his
varied working career rather pro-
saically by taking a job in a post
office. But this was only the be-
ginning.
For a while he was a profes-
sional boxer, a featherweight,
and he admitted, he "did all
right. I won most of my bouts,
had a couple of draws." It was
during his days in the ring that
Wall gained his nickname of
"Wildcat." His fighting days
came to a premature end when
his wife made him quit.
For fifteen years he was an un-
dertaker's assistant. Then came
a period when he ran a tavern.
And during the war he worked
in a bomber plant.
All the time Wall also enter-
tained with songs and patter at
various affairs, and devoted a
good deal of his time to perfecting
his routines.
* * *
When the chance came to get
the job at the Phi Gams, he
,grabbed it with no hesitation. He

was living alone at the time-his
wife was dead and his two chil-
dren grown.
With all the books around
the house, he thought the posi-
tion would give him a chance
to further his self-education,
an objective he'd been pursu-
ing through reading and "ex-;
perience", since he left school
at Oberlin.
In his five years here Wall has
not buried his entertaining tal-
ents under the books. He's man-
aged, he estimated, to get around
to parties at most of the campus

fraternity and sorority houses.
"And I'm still available," Wall
added quickly.
AMONG THE MANY students,

"And," laughed Wall, "he did."

Thor Johnson
To Conduct
Here Tuesday
The Cincinnati Symphony Or-
chestra, under the baton of former
University professor Thor Johnson,
will give the last concert in the'
Extra Series at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday
in Hill Auditorium.
Among the works to be played
are Henry Hadley's "Overture, 'In
Bohemia' " and Enesco's "Rou-
manian Rhapsody No. 2."
Johnson's association with the
University began in the fall of
1934 when he enrolled in the
Graduate School of Music. After
a year of study here he was,
awarded the Beebe Foundation
scholarship which afforded him
two years of study in Europe.
There he studied under Felix
Weingartner, Bruno Walter and
Nicolai Malko. Johnson returned
to the United States in 1938 and
accepted a professorship in the
University music school. Here he
conducted the University Sym-
phony-and Little Symphony.
In 1939 he was appointed di-
rector of the Grand Rapids
Symphony and musical director
of the May Festival and Choral
Union at the University,
Johnson began an Army career
in 1942 which included the found-
ing of the first soldier symphony'
orchestra.
After his discharge in 1946,
Johnson accepted the post of con-
ductor of the Juilliard School of
Music Orchestra and later that
year was appointed conductor of
the Cincinnati Symphony Or-
chestra.
