Radio Guild Offers* Expert Training

"Be natural."
"You don't have to play Shake-
speare. Play what you are suited
for, but play it well."
This is the advice that Frank
Bouwsma, Grad., gives to neophyte
members of the WUOM Radio
Guild. The Guild offers instruction
to its members in broadcasting
techniques and radio acting, with
the more advanced members form-
ing a reserve of talent for WUOM
* * *
INITIATED two years ago as
the result of an idea of WUOM
staff member Shirley Shepard,
the Guild has advanced from a
small group into a major activi-
ty which has won two prizes for
its excellence and has served as
the model for many similar groups.
It has become so popular that au-
ditions are now necessary to keep
its membership small.
Headed by Bouwsma and Jim
Bob Stephenson, Grad., the
Guild is.divided into beginning
and advanced groups, each meet-
ing one afternoon a week. The
only qualification for member-
ship is a willingness to learn.
Each Guild member undergoes a
rigid training in the fundamentals
of radio acting for one semester.
As soon as he becomes proficient,
he is used in regular WUOM pro-
THE GUILD, Bouwsma empha-
sized, is not run as a class, but is
done on a workshop basis. Sec-
tions are limited to around 50, so
that every person can get indi-
vidual attention. " Members are
there for training, he pointed out,
as well as for fun.
Giving scripts and assigned
parts at each meeting, the mem-
bers rehearse and work togeth-
er in small groups, -presenting
the finished product to the whole
group for criticism. The more
advanced students act as direc-
tors, and members also work the

The 1200 seat flashcard section
presently being organized by the
Wolverine Club for the coming
football season will not be com-
prised of former senior seats, Don
Weir, of the athletic department
said yesterday.
According to Stan Bohrer,. '55,
of the Wolverine Club, the "Block
M" section, located between the
20 and 35 yard lines, will in no way
deprive next year's seniors of
choice seats.
Movies of last year's flashcard
display will be shown in conjunc-

tion with Cinema Guild at the
Architecture Auditorium from 7 to
9 p.m. today and tomorrow, and at
8 p.m. Sunday, the club spokes-
man said.
Due to a lack of financial sup-
port, Bohrer explained that the
club has found it necessary to
charge next year's participants a
25 cent membership fee.
The club has scheduled registra-
tion for next 'fall's card section
from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday in Bar-
bour Gymnasium.

sound effects.
Experience gained in the Guild
has enabled its members to get
top roles in speech department ra-
dio shows, and in various student
theater productions. Learning to
act, Bouwsma explained, helps a
person to learn to stand, on his own
two feet.

Although the Guild has not done
any regular radio broadcasts this
year, a series of 30 minute labora-
tory productions were taped ex-
perimentally in the Fall.
The Guild's only problem seems
to be that it.has been so success-
ful that it is in danger of becom-
ing too big to handle.
