University students who wish to
get away from Michigan's un-

LURED BY the appeal of a tro-
pical vacation plus college credits,
many students from the States
went to Hawaii for summer school
at the University there last year.
These men and women car-
ried as little as two and as many
as eight hours of credit session.
During, their off-campus hours
they received an informal edu-
cation in island customs, scen-
ery and economy.
Three years ago J. D. Howard
arranged a summer tour of the is-
lands for college students and the
idea of studying in the tropical
setting has become so popular
thathe brings large groupsof
students to Honolulu every sum-

the summer session there.

Marion Charles, president of the
University of Michigan Women's
Glee Club, which just completed
a three day tour during the mid-
semester vacation, reported that
"the trip to Adrian, Owosso and
Sturgis was wonderful."
She went on to say that the
group will be looking forward to
the spring tour which will include
a concert at Rackham Hall in De-
troit in connection with the Men's
Glee Club.
THE TOUR which took/ place
between semesters, included four
performances, two of which were
given in Adrian.
Leaving Ann Arbor on Sat-
urday, Jan. 27, the group travel-
ed by bus to Adrian, where they
sang that evening in the First
Baptist Church. Afterwards an
informal gathering was held
with the Masonic Lodge provid-
ing coffee and donuts.
The next morning the club sang
the 6omplete morning service in
the Episcopal Church and then
finished out the afternoon by hav-
ing dinner with the congregation
and choir.
s .
THAT EVENING the Episcopal
Church in Owosso sponsored the
group for a performance in the
high school.
The final stop on the tour was
the First Presbyterian Church
in Sturgis on Monday afternoon.
Because of transportation lim-
itations, only three quarters of the
group's 75 members participated
in the tour. All of the coeds stay-
ed in private homes and frequent-
ly were guests of Michigan alumni.

A VARIEJ program was pre-
sented including selections from
the clasical works of Pretorious
to several by Gershwin and Elgar.
The concert featured Leslie
Bennett, a tenor from the school
of music, and Edward Banghart,
a specialist in folk songs, who
gave a running commentary to
explain the stories behind the
The Vaughan Shadows, a trio
deriving their name from the fact
that one of the coeds is a sister
of a member of the now non-
existent Vaughan House trio of
previous years, were featured se-
parately doing several noveltyj

THE PROGRAM concluded
when Mr. Maynard Kline, the di-
rector, turned the baton over to
the student conductor, Jan Leis-
enring, who led the group in tra-
ditional Michigan songs.

The Women's Glee Club which
was first organized in 1885, has
developed from a formal con-
cert group to the informal group
it is at the present time.
Existing as a separate organiza-
tion complete in itself, the club
has many activities including an-
nual Christmas and Spring con-
certs, radio programs, a tour
through the state and an annual
Spring banquet.
* * *
THIS YEAR for the first time
the club has combined with Arts
Chorale to form a larger mixed
singing group under the direction
of Maynard Kline.
Separate and joint rehearsals
and programs are sponsored by
the two groups.
Arts Chorale rehearses at 7 p.m.
on Thursday evenings at Lane
Hall while the Women's Glee Club
practices at 4 p.m. on Tuesdays in
Auditorium D of Angell Hall.
All men and women who are in-
terested in participating in these
musical activities are invited to
attend the rehearsals which will
be held at the regular times this


Shall we, or shall we not, form
an Organization to he known as
The sole purpose of THE MONITOR CLUB would be the
recovery and preservation of the Monitor-the most famous war-
ship of the 19th Century. It would be dedicated to the belief
that it should be raised, restored as nearly as possible to its original
condition and made available for inspection by the patriotic Ameri-
cans of our day.
Let's briefly survey the facts as found in our History books
and you will readily see why historians and military men the world
over agree that THIS was the craft which finally spelled ".finis"
to the wooden battleship.
In March, 1862 an important unit of the Federal Navy was
stationed at Hampton Roads, Va. The Confederate iron-chd
Merrimac had already destroyed several of them and on March 8th
had rammed and sunk the Cumberland and set fire to the Congress.
The next day it planned to finish off the remaining units in the
Union Navy. But the next morning tthe Monitor-which was
derisively called a "cheese-box mounted on a raft-steamed into
Hampton Roads and the most decisive Naval engagement of the
Civil War took place. For nearly four hours the duel continued.
The Merrimac mounted ten heavy guns while the Monitor had
only two. But the peculiar construction and greater maneuver-
ability of the Monitor prevailed. Its flat, iron-plated deck was
only two or three feet above the water and its small revolving
turret containing two eleven-inch guns presented a small target.
The Monitor could use both guns while the Merrimac could use
only half of hers and that reduced the enemy gun superiority
100%. The Merrimac was badly damaged and, admitting defeat,
steamed away to Norfolk.
In December of the same year the Monitor, while enroute to a
port in South Carolina, was overtaken by an unusually severe
storm and sent to the bottom. It was believed to be carrying im-
portant papers and it is also thought that most of the crew went
down with it.t
Not long ago the Press reported that the Navy Dept. had
located it a few miles off the coast of North Carolina in water of
medium depth. The report also stated that a group of students at
some University were very indignant because the Navy Dept.
made no mention of any desire to raise it.
This, in a nutshell, is the story of the Monitor's importance
in American history.
Which brings us back to the action proposed at the top of
this announcement.
If the objective proposed is to be realized it must be done
through collective action and the purpose of this article is to
ascertain just how much of that "collective action" may now be
