MAN OF MANY INTERESTS:
TeachingFirst with Felheim
* * * *
By DIANE DECKER
"I'm here, I teach," the balding,}
bespectacled scholar said with
finality.
"That's the most important
thing."
"Teaching"' may well be the
most important thing to Prof. $
Marvin Felheim of the English '
department, but his interests don't .
stop there.

* * u
EARLY IN HIS University
teaching career, Prof. Felheim
took on another activity as faculty
advisor to the Theatre Guild. The
association proved short-lived, for
during the Felheim administra-
tion, the group produced a "racy"
version of "Volpone" which, "fi-
nally got through the censors after
a series of appeals. But then we
.,ad an unauthorized party for the
cast at someone's apartment-
and went, abruptly, off campus,"
Prof. Felheim explained.
Undismayed by this fiasco,
Prof. Felheim went on to aid in
the creation of two local pro-
jects with which he is still ac-
tive -- "Generation" magazine
and the Arts Theatre Club.
Ater translating a foreign man-
uscript for Inter-Arts Union, Fel-
heim became well-known to that
group. When they created "Gen-
eration," Felheim was the logical
choice for faculty advisor, a job
which he still hold in an advisory
capacity.
However, Prof. Felheim has
found that he has a bull by the
tail. "If I could resign, I would," he
confided, "but we'eve had five edi-
tors in six issues, and someone has
to give it continuity."
* * *
ARTS THEATER was a more
impromptu affair. "About a year
ago, I walked downtown one day
with a friend and had ten dollars
worth of tickets printed up for. an
unspecified production.
"Then we rented a hall and
had a meeting of all the people
who were interested in theater-
in-the-round. There was only
one maj9r issue-how to spell
'theater'- and I won.
"One month later, 'The Respect-
ful Prostitute' opened," he proudly
continued.
"I helped establish both of these
things out of principle and out of
the feeling that Inter-Arts Union
needs an outlet. I'm sort of thrilled
about being in on two things.
which have been so successful. My
philosophy is that this sort of
thing is a part of my job."

BUT LET'S GET back to teach-
Ing, Felheim requested. "The
classroom part of my job is the
most important. Everything I do

Club Plans
TripSouth
For students looking for an in-
teresting way to spend spring va-
cation the Wolverine Club has
planned a special Florida train
trip.
Special cut-rate prices for
transportation, entertainment,
housing and meals have been ar-
ranged to make the trip as inex-
pensive as possible, according to
Bob Golten, '52, Wolverine Club
special trips chairman.
A FIVE - HOUR stop - over in
Washington each way with a spe-
cial tour of government buildings
and other places of interest has
been scheduled.
A week-long program of en-
tertainment will also be provid-
ed in Fort Lauderdale including
deep-sea fishing, Everglades ex-
cursions in glass bottom boats,
dances and parties, Golten said.
Reasonably-priced housing in a
beach-side hotel will be provided,
and arrangements have been
made for reduced meal rates.
THE SUNLAND Special will
leave at 5:30 p.m. April 4 from.
Detroit and will return from Fort
Lauderdale the following Friday.
Students who have made other
transportation arrangements will
be able to meet the group in Fort
Lauderdale and still take advan-
tage of the inexpensive entertain-
ment features, Golten said.
Ticket sales for the trip will be-
gin from 1 to 4:30 p.m. tomorrow
and will continue through March
26 in the Administration Bldg.
Reduced rates on the "Sunland
Special" are $69.50 round-trip in-
cluding tax) which is about a $20
saving, Golten said.

U.S. Aid to Europe
A student panel of the Interna-
tional Relations Club will discuss
the United States' commitments
to Western Europe at 7:30 p.m.
today in Rm. 3-S of the Union.

Float Petitions
The deadline for entry of
Michigras float petitions is 5
p.m. today.
All petitions should be turned
in to Jack Ehlers, '53, at the
Union Student Offices, accord-'
Lig to Gretchen Meier, '54,
parade co-chairman.
The parade will be on the
theme of progress in the last
50 years, in honor of Michigras'
fiftieth anniversary, Miss Meier'
said. Each float should present
only one phase of progress in
the past half century, she ex-
plained.
CLC Passes.
Amendment
A five-paragraph amendment
to the Civil Liberties Committee
constitution barring any supporter
of a totalitarian organization
from membership was strength-
ened at this week's meeting of the
CLC.
The amendment was revised to
censure a member for overt action
inconsistent with the principles of
the group. The clause adds: "The
above article shall not be miscon-
strued to set up a loyalty board or
screening apparatus within the
organzation."
Lang To Speak
The University School of Music
Lecture Series will feature Prof.
Paul Henry Lang of Columbia
University as its speaker at 4:15
p.m. today in Rackham Amphi-
theatre.
Prof. Lang will speak on "The
Aesthetics of Opera."

CLEAN ERS
1213 So. University

The versatile atom is now being
used to discover just .how clean
washing machines and household
soaps actually make clothes and
dishes, according to Prof. Gerald
M. Ridenour of the University's
School of Public Health.
After three years of research
Prof. Ridenour and the staff of
the National Sanitation founda-
tion believe they have found the
answer to the question asked by
scientists, manufacturers a n d
housewives alike, "Is it as clean
as it looks?"
Utilizing the radioactive prod-
ucts of atomic fission they are

now able to ferret out and ex-
pose the hidden bacteria and
dirt on any material and sr-
face, Prof. Ridenour said.
The new development, which is
regarded as a major advance in
the measurement of sanitation,
involves soiling household objects
with specific amounts of dirt and
bacteria that have been made
radioactive.
The items are then washed
and exposed to an X-ray film
where the remaining dirt and
bacteria leave their "atomic au-
tograph" and reveal to the sci-

entists the quantity and distri-
bution of residual material.
While the method is now being
used mainly for research on san-
itation, Prof. Ridenour believes
the results may lead to increased
efficiency in the dirt-removing
qualities of detergents, laundry
machines and restaurant dish
washing machines.

PROF. MARVIN FELHEIM -
"I'm here, I teach."

* * *
is an extension of that particular
function. I want to teach every-
thing in English-there's nothing
I don't want to teach in litera-
ture."
Finding freshmen every bit as
stimulating as upperclassmen,
he enjoys teaching here because
"I can teach a variety of things
to a lot of people, and I don't
merely get pushed into a 'spe-
ciality. The only thing I don't
like is teaching Saturday clas-
ses.
Grinning impishly, he added, "I
have a feeling that I'm considered
a harder teacher than some of the
others, and it's too bad to doubly
penalize my students by making
them get up on Saturday morn-
ings."
HOWEVER, PRQF. Felheim
doesn't spend all of his time near
the classroom, nor even with its
related activities. He is a promi-
nent member of a weekly book
review program, "About Books"
which is heard at 4:30 p.m. every
Wednesday over WHRV. He also
is the director of a weekly poetry
program over WUOM.
"Between the two shows, I
have to read at least two books
a week," he exclaimed gleefully.
The versatile teacher is one of
the authors of "Modern Short
Stories," a text book for English

31. "I just got my first royalty
statement," he announced proudly.
"We're only in debt for a little
over $1,000 to the publishers."
An inveterate movie-goer, Fel-
heim rationalizes "I want to teach
a course on the history of the
movies.
"But I don't believe in ath-
letics. When I feel like exercis-
ing, I adhere to the George Ber-
nard Shaw proverb, and just lie
down until it goes away. I don't
collect records or take pictures
either; I guess in that sense I'm
pretty dull," he adds.
Plans for the future? Prof. Fel-
heim is full of them. I'd like to
stay here, I'm very ambitious, I
want to get ahead. I want to be
a full professor. I want to write
more books. I want to teach all
the courses in the catalogue."
He does, too.
AIM To Resume

The Association of Independent
Men will resume sales of sports
equipment at discount rates from
3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. beginning

Braun, '54.
