SL Nets $1,250 Profit
At Homecoming Dance
A last-minute flurry of ticket sales at the door of the I-M Build-
ing Saturday night saved an uneasy Student Legislature from a disas-
trous loss on the Homecoming Dance.
As the final figures roll in, it appears that the profit from the
dance will approximate $1,250. In the SL budget, an income of $1;500
was contemplated.
However, until sales at the door began, SL was $500 away from
covering expenses-and unless a substantial profit was made on the
dance, which is now the chief source of income for the Legislature, a
wholseale butchering of the bud-

Orchestras To
Appear on TV
Music lovers have a treat in
store for them this weekend when
the Boston Symphony Orchestra
and NBC Symphony Orchestra
present televised concerts tomor-
row and Saturday nights.
Directed by Charles Munch, the
Boston Symphony Orchestra will
appear at 8:00 p.m. tomorrow over
NBC-TV. This will be the first tele-
vised concert of the orchestra from
Boston at the Boston Opera House.
Saturday night the NBC Sym-
phony Orchestra, under the direc-
tion of Maestro Arturo Toscanini,
will present a televised concert
from Carnegie Hall at 6:30 p.m.
over station WWJ-TV. The group
will include in their selections

Brahms, and the "Euranthe Over-
ture" by Weber.

get would have been necessary.
BUT 600 CASH customers stream-
ed to the I-M ticket booth, putting
SL within calling distance of the
budgeted profit.
The $250 which separated the
net take from the budgeted fig-
ure will probably be compensat-
ed for by unexpected success in
other smaller-scale money-mak-
ing ventures, SL Treasurer Bob
Baker reported. Last year's Cin-
ema Guild operations are wind-
ing up $150 more than the ori-
ginal estimate, and it appears that
Soph Satire may realize a $100
However, the $1,250 Homecoming
profit is peanuts compared to last
year's haul of $2,700. Six hundred
less people and a more expensive
band account for the smaller fig-
ure. The decline in attendance,
though, jibes almost exactly to the
decline in enrollment.
IT WAS LAST year's Homecom-
ing Dance that pulled SL out of a
scandalous hole. The profit al-
lowed SL to repay a two-year old
debt to the University of the Phil-
ippines. Over $1,000 had been col-
lected on campus for the war-ra-'
vished Philippine University, and
then spent for other purposes.
At that time, a financial over-
hauling of SL was undertaken,
Since then, the organization has
been on a comfortable footing
At present, the three significant
sources of SL funds are the Uni-
versity, the Homecoming Dance
and the Cinema Guild. From the
administration comes an annual
appropriation of $1,200 (recently
raised from $1,000). The Cinema
Guild last year netted $650.
* *
THIS YEAR'S budget breaks
down roughly into $1,000 for pub-
lic relations, $1,000 for capital im-
provements, $500 for the building,
$500 for the National Student As-
sociation, and $400 for committees
and cabinet.
Most of the public relations
money is spent on issuing the
"Your S t u d e n t Legislature"
pamphlet to new students and
for similar publication.
Student legislators by and large
feel that the present sources of in-
come are inadequate. A chronic
suggestion is that some sort of tax
on the students be devised, such as
the sum the Union receives out of
the tuition fees.
It has also been suggested at
times that the University appro-
priation be increased. However,
the University grant is larger than
the face value of the appropria-
tion. The SL Building at 122 S.
Forest is University property, and
some maintenance costs are car-
ried by the administration.

Four Gedeon
Four Elmer Gedeon scholarships
of up to $1,000 a piece were award-
ed yesterday by the University
Scholarship Committee.
To date, twenty-three such
scholarships have been given, all
to men going out for one of the
University's athletic teams.
These scholarships are given
every semester to students showing
high scholastic ability, potential
leadership qualities and athletic
This year's recipients are Lee
Miles, '55, Richard Henczer, '55,
Douglas Peck, '55, and Fred Mar-
shall, '55E.
These scholarships were estab-
lished in May, 1950, in honor of
Elmer Gedeon, who was one of the
University's first war dead. An!
outstanding athlete, Gedeon played
end on the football team, first
base on the baseball team and was
an outstanding hurdler.

year are appropriated by the

iate Athletics to be divided as

find themselves working long
hours at the library analyzing
comic strips, as diligently as a
music student would study a Bach
prelude. Included in the required
readings are the daily and Sun-
day papers, special industrial fun-
nies, critiques and histories of
these funnies.
In the analysis of these news-
paper forms the students care-
fully study writing techniques,
use of suspense and climax, and
art work. In addition, they hear
lectures by funnies experts Mil-
ton Caniff, Al Capp and other
notables in the field.
By the end of the course the
students are able to distinguish a

poor comic strip from a good one,
and to understand its appeal to a
vast audience.
After learning the various tech-
niques used in popular comics, stu-
dents are then ready to try their
own luck at this medium of ex-
pression. Coordinating their talents
into a three-way unity artist, writ-
er, and researcher, the analyzers
use their own educational resour-
ces to form a story, which is then
transformed into a comic strip.
By utilizing this course histor-
ians, musicians, and other special-
ized fields can use the funnies to
give further insight into their sub-
ject matter, while still departing
from the conventional "dry lec-
ture" method.
