AUTUMN NOCTURNE:
Novelaires To Perform
At SL Dance Saturday

By CATHY ZEISLER
Half-time ceremonies featuring
the Novelaires will entertain
couples at "Autumn Nocturne,"
all-campus dance to be sponsored
by the Student Legislature from
9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday at the
Intramural Building.
The Novelaires, composed of
four members of the Men's Glee
Club, are known on campus for
their arrangements of "We.Three,"
"Do I Worry," and "It's a Blue
World."
* * *
TOMMY DORSEY and his or-
chestra will provide music for the
dance. With him will be Sam Don-
ahue, on the tenor saxophone.
Donahue formerly had a band in
this area and brought it to Ann
Arbor several times to play for
campus events.
"The Sentimental Gentle-
m a n," as the bandleader is
known, was the first musician
to use the trombone as a solo
instrument. Before he featured
the trombone, it was used ex-
clusively as a background rhy-
thm instrument.
Now in his fifteenth year in the
music business, Dorsey started
with his brother, Jimmy, and one
of their first bands included such

SAM DONAHUE
... former local bandleader
* * *
men as Bob Crosby, Ray McKinley
and Glen Miller.

TICKETS FOR the informal
dance are on sale on the Diagonal,
in Angell Hall and the Adminis-
tration Building, and will also be
available at the door, priced at
$3.60.

First Asian
ConfabHeld'
Last Night
The newly-formed All-Asian As-
sociation held its organizational
meeting and presented an Asian
cultural program to an audience
of over one hundred students last
night at the International Center.
After a dispute over the draft
of the constitution, a motion was
passed stating that the lresidents
of all the organized Asian groups
on campus will choose a member
from each of their clubs to write
a new draft for a constitution. The
new draft will be presented to the
Association at its next meeting,
AFTER THIS decision, the cul-
tural part of the program began
with a dance performed by four
students from Thailand. Two of
the Thai dancers, both women,
appeared in the colorful gold and
orange costumes of their native
land.
The dances were followed by
a Pakistan student playing mel-
odies popular in his country on
a mouth organ, and several cur-
rent Hawaiian favorites were
performed on the ukelele by a
student from that country.
B. V. Govindaraj, convener of
the association, then introduced
James Chang, who performed on
the Chinese viola, a small bamboo
string instrument and Dr. Kumar
who played semi-classical and de-
votional songs on an Indian bam-
boo flute, one of the most ancient
instruments known to man.
The program concluded with a
Japanese dance performed by a
petite Chinese student dressed in
her native brocaded costume.
Kugel To Address

from University Hospital, will*

students are invited by the Society

versity in South Bend, Ind.

By MARK READER
While the Gallops, Crosleys and
Ropers blare out the results of
their latest predictions on the out-
come of the '52 elections to a pant-
ing public, the only group in the
country to correctly anticipate the
last presidential race has thrown
a veil of secrecy around its partial
findings.
Besieged by eager newsmen for
information, frustrated student
politicos, and nervous voters, the
Survey Research Center stolidly
continues tabulating its results,
totally oblivious to the pleas of a
politically hysterical nation.
* * * .
BEHIND the Center's hesitancy
to publish its tentative findings is
the fact that it just does not care
whether the Democrats or Repub-
licans "sweep" the country next
Tuesday.
It is more interested in find-
ing out why people vote as they
do and, if they happen to stum-
ble on to the victor, it is a com-
pletely secondary consideration.
Meanwhile, rampant rumors
continue to circulate that the
Center knows who will win. The
only trouble with these rumors is
that they are completely contra-

dictory in their selection of the
victorious candidate.
* * *
PROF. ANGUS Campbell, Direc-
tor ,of the Social Research Center
has reiterated that the results of
the poll are unknown, and will not
be known until well after the elec-
tion - possibly not before next
Spring..
He pointed out that there are
four major reasons why people
vote as they do and that the pres-
ent survey is an attempt to inves-
tigate them. Party loyalty, charac-
teristics of the candidate, issues,
and specific personal pressures
play the major role in determining
the national vote.
"In this campaign more than
most we have a well known and
highly respected national hero op-
posing a relatively unknown can-
didate," Prof. Campbell continued.
"This is a unique situation.
Whether this hold on the voters
is shaken is the question of the
moment."
The survey's samples of voter
opinion are taken from 66 coun-
ties representing the U.S. in gen-
eral and 2,000 people are inter-
viewed in the course of the study.
"I don't think Gallop knows who
will win," Prof. Campbell conclud-
ed, "and neither do I."

Help Week
Endorsement
I very heartily endorse the
IFC pledge work program at
the Fresh Air Camp. This is
an extension of the sort of pro-
gram which various of our fra-
ternities have undertaken on
behalf of their own pledges at
various times in the past three
or four years. It should do much
to place our pledge training on
a constructive basis. The ben-
efits which will accrue to our
Fresh Air Camp and to the
University community in terms
of the Camp are obvious.
-Erich Walter
Dean of Students
will wirebrush the ten frame cab-
ins which house the Camp's child-
ren during the summer.
Materials for the junior IFC's
first project come from a variety
of sources. IFC is providing the
wire brushes while the Univer-
sity is supplying the paint. Lad-
ders and paint brushes have
been borrowed from each frater-
nity and, carefully marked to in-
sure their being returned to the
proper houses.
Panhel pledges will also get into
the act. A total of about 50 women
will take part in the painting and
will help prepare Saturday morn-
ing's breakfast. Panhel president
Diane Harris, '53, said that plans
were also being formulated for a
sorority pledge spring work pro-
ject at the camp.

THE FRESH Air Camp is lo-
cated 24 miles northwest of Ann
Arbor on Patterson Lake. Original-
ly set up as a vacation opportun-
ity for underprivileged boys from
southeastern Michigan, the camp
took on sociological functions in
1946 when it was placed in the
University's Institute for Human
Adjustment.
The 31-year-old camp's aca-
demic, administrative and main-
tenance costs are provided for by
the Institute and the University
Summer Session. Remaining costs
are paid by University students'
donation drives, by social agencies
which send the boys to camp and
by alumni contributions.

ACCORDING to results of other
poll queries, more Stevenson back-
ers than Ike supporters have
changed their preferences since
the Labor Day kick-off of the
campaign.
Statistics show that 36 per
cent of present Stevenson voters
"switched horses in the middle
of the stream" while only seven
per cent of Ike's votes result
from mid-campaign change of
heart.
Vice-presidentitnl candidates of
both parties took a beating in the
poll. In answer to the question,
"Do you wholeheartedly approve
of your candidate's running mate?"
55 per cent of Adlai's supporters
checked a "no" up against Sen.
John Sparkman.
Thirty-four per cent of Ike's
backers refused to give Sen. Rich-
ard Nixon their unqualified sup-
port.
However, many faculty mem-
bers objected to this question
on the grounds that it was "poor-
ly phrased" and that "one can-
not approve of anything whole-
heartedly."
ty's choice and I would hardly
The much-prized independent
vote was almost equally divided
between the contested parties.
Twenty-one per cent of the Ike
camp indicated customary inde-
pendence and of. Adlai's fans, 27
per cent divorced themselves from
specific party allegiance.
