HOPWOODS TO CONCERTS:
Success Story of 'M' Student Told
From philosophy to English to
a career as a concert pianist
seems to summarize the success
story of Miss Celia Chao, a form-
er University student from Shang-
After graduating with an all A
average from high school in
Shanghai, Miss Chao entered Gin-
ling College, Nanking, to special-
ize in mathematics and physics.
Instead, she was persuaded to de-
vote her Aime to music and the
piano by her piano teacher.
* * *
IN 1937 SHE was enrolled as a
guest student at the National
Conservatory of Music in Shang-
hai, and studied piano there until
she transferred to the University
of Michigan the following year.
While at Michigan, Miss Chao
received a major Hopwood
award in English Essay--an out-
standing feat for one not born
or brought up in America.
The University Hospital has put
out a call for volunteers for their
Volunteer Service, designed to
bring patients added benefits
above routine care, to make them
feel more at home during their
stay 'and to bring little luxuries
An escort service, set up to take
patients from the 'reception desk
to the proper department or from
one department to another is one
need which the Volunteer Service
hopes to fill.
People can work anytime dur-
ing the morning and u7 until 4
p.m. any afternoon.
There is a need of people to
assist the chaplain in his duties.
It is preferred that persons inter-
ested in this service be able to
work at least two hours each af-
The book cart, used in wards
and private rooms as well, is in
need of people to take it around
and help patients select reading
material. There is no amount of
time specified for this.
People interested in working
with children are urged to volun-
teer for work on the children's
floor in the recreation plan. At
least four hours' work per week
These are excellent opportuni-
ties for women and men, too, who
are interested in social work,
teaching and nursing.
For further information and
appointments call Mrs. Elizabeth
McCoy, head of the Volunteer
Service, at the University Hospi-
tal, extension 289 or 270.
