FREDRICO THE GREAT:
G&S Operetta To Include'
Its Phantom Character

By JON SOBELOFF
Fredrico isn't real.
But he'll be on the program
when the Gilbert & Sullivan So-
ciety's production of "Yeomen of
the Guard" opens Wednesday at
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
FREDRICO, who has become a
G&S institution, was born a few
years ago when "Yum-Yum" the
feminine lead in "The Mikado,"
forgot a line. The missing line, a
vital cue, threw the other two
leads off, and hn embarrassing si-
lence settled on the thespians.
The quick thinking masculine
line; "Nanki Poo," saved the
day, however, by shouting "Oh,
I must see Fredrico," and stamp-
Dorn Plan
Brings SL
Near Coeds
Close personal contact between
Student Legislature and the inde-
pendent woman is the keynote of
SL's newly instituted Dorm Chair-
man plan.
Tried last year on an experi-
mental basis in a few women's
dormitories, the plan received an
enthusiastic response. It has been
established in every independent
women's residence on campus.
,
ONE CHAIRMAN has been
elected from eachhouse to serve
as a liaison between SL and the
residents. At weekly Friday meet-
ings, held in the SL Bldg, they
reivew the Legislature's activities,
then take the information back to
their groups. They also register
comlaints which the residents
have voiced against SL.
A still more complex method
of keeping students informed is
used in the larger dormitories.
Begun in- Stockwell Hall and
known as the Stockwell Plan, the
system provides for a represen-
tative from each corridor of the
dormitory. These representatives
form a committee which is head-
ed by the dorm chairman.
Legislature officials believe that
the new plan was instrumental in
getting a larger percentage of the
independent women to vote last
semester. The chairman are aim-
ing at a one hundred per cent
turnout in each house in the com-
ing election.
The dorm chairman committee
is headed by Midge Wilkins, '55, of
Cheever. Other house representa-
tives are Mary Helen Piquet,
* Mosher; Carolyn Cass, '55N, Cou-
sins; Jo Collens, '54, Hinsdale;
Carol Foote, '55, Newberry; Ber-
nice Ozga, '53, Victor Vaughn;
Joan Cooper, '54, Stockwell; Cyn-
thia Shapiro, '53, Henderson; El-
len Brown, '55, Jordan, Shirley
Baylise, '55, Betsy Barbour; Con-
nie Brizman, '53, Martha Cook;
Grace Ritou, '56, Kleinstueck;
Elinor Cutler, '55, Angell and Led-
ra Hirsch, '54Ed, Palmer.
Former 'U' Star
Hurt in Mishap
LINCOLN, Neb. - () - Henry
A. "Ernie" Vick, All-American cen-
ter onthe 1921 Michigan football
team, was injured in an automo-
bile accident en route here Friday.
He was to have officiated at yes-
terday's Nebraska-Minnesota foot-
ball game.

Word of Vick's injury reached
Nebraska Athletic Director George
"Potsy" Clark Friday night. The
former star suffered some frac-
tured ribs, but was not seriously
hurt, it was reported. He was hos-
pitalized at Three Rivers, Mich.
Art Discussion
The Ann Arbor Art Association
will show slides and hold a panel
discussion on the theme, "Design
Tomorrow" at 8 p.m. Tuesday in
the Rackham Amphitheatre.

ing offstage to the waiting
prompter.
He returned to the stage, faced
the orchestra's conductor with de-.
termination, and statedfirmly
"That's a fne how do you do"
After a moment's hesitation, the
conductor raised his baton, and
plunged into the next song, "A
fine how do you do."
In commemoration of this inci-
dent, the G&S programs now car-
ry the name of Fredrico as a cast
member in every show.
* * *
"YEOMEN of the Guard," writ-
ten as a satire on the self-satisfied
members of the guard of tower of
London, includes the usual G&S
humor and patter songs. "Musi-
cally, this is one of Gilbert and
Sullivan's best shows," commented
David Murray, the operetta's dir-
ector. "It's characters are more
real, and its dramatization more
challenging than most G&S," he
added.,
Tickets for the production which
will run four nights ending Sat-
urday, go on sale tomorrow at the
Lydia Mendelssohn box office.
Prices are $1.20 and 90 cents.
Aides Arrange
For HST-Ike
Talk Tuesday
WASHINGTON - (P) - Presi-
dent-elect Eisenhower's advance
scouts, sifting secrets and shun-
ning publicity, quietly cleared thej
way yesterday for, his conference
Tuesday with President Truman.
Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., and
Detroit banker Joseph M. Dodge,
had no report on their progress.
Lodge is Eisenhower's liaison with.
almost all Government agencies
but the Budget Bureau; Dodge
takes over there.
Lodge made it clear that he was
asking questions, not answering
them. Working in his Senate of-
fice, he said only that he is gath-
ering "top secret" information
from the Truman Administration.
Practically nothing has been
heard from Dodge since he arrived
in Washington last Wednesday.
He announced he was going to
watch-but not to criticize or ad-
vise-while budget officials put
the finishing touches to the last
Federal budget of the Truman Ad-
ministration, which goes to Con-
gress in January.
Dodge and other Eisenhower
aides have emphasized that the
General will not accept respon-
sibility for anything in the Tru-
man budget.
Deer Season
Kills Three
By The Associated Press
Three hunters died yesterday in
the opening -hours of Michigan's
16-day deer hunting season.
One was killed by gunfire and
the other two died of heart at-
tacks.
An estimated 300,000 to 400,000
took to the woods in quest of a
bag which the State Conservation
Commission estimates will total
around 250,000 deer.
It was the largest outpouring of
hunters in Michigan history. But
most found conditions far from
ideal. Over much of the state it
was dry. There was little snow for
tracking anywhere. It was warm
and drizzling in Sault Ste. Marie.
Stevens To Talk

On Economics
Speaking on Britain and the
world economy, Robert Stevens
will address, an open meeting of
the Economics Club at 8 p.m. to-
morrow in the west conference
room of the Rackham Bldg.
Staff members and students in
economics and business adminis-
tration have been especially in-
vited by the club to hear Stevens,
who has recently returned from
service with the Mutual Security
administration in London.

SL Voting Record
By HARRY LUNN
As a review of the positions taken by StudEt Legislature
members on various issues, The Daily has prepared a summary
voting record of present SL members on key issues which have
been voted on recently.
Two chief issues have faced the Legislature this semester.
One of these, the Lecture Committee problem, was first voted on
last May. The other is the discriminatory scholarship question
which was voted on last week.
* * * *
LEGISLATORS votes on these topics are recorded under
the following headings:
1) Motion of May 21 on the Lecture Committee which is
substantially the same plan as that passed by hand vote several
meetings ago. The proposal calls for postjudgment rather than
prejudgment of speeches with more responsibility centered on
the sponsoring group.
2) Motion on discriminatory scholarships passed Nov. 12
which recommends that the University hereafter refuse schol-
arship grants based on racial or religious qualifications.
A "yes" vote is shown, as "Y" and a "no" vote as "N."
If the member abstained, this is indicated by "A," and if he was
absent it is shown as "Ab." Since several members were not on
the Legislature in May, a blank space is left opposite their name
under number one.
Candidates running for re-election will be designated with
an asterick in front of their name.

The Wolverines fought their way one step
nearer to the Tournament of Roses yesterday.
It was a near-perfect game. Precision, flash,
drama and heads-up football were all there in
generous amounts. King Football's finale in

Ann Arbor was a grand and glorious affair to
almost all concerned - the exceptions beig
Purdue rooters who saw chances for their first
crack at the coast classic go a-glimnmering. At
any rate, all enjoyed the pleasant afternoon.

COLLEGE ROUNDUP:
Ohio State Women Turn Late
Minutes into Activity Funds

By DOROTHY MYERS
A new twist on lengthening wo-
men's hours, a solution to a cam-
pus parking problem and a pro-
fessor's research on the childhood
experiences of prominent movie
stars dominated this week's news
from colleges and universities
across the country.
The Women's Self Government
Association on the Ohio State cam-
pus sponsored a "Penny a Min-
ute" night- to collect money for
their organization's activities. The
Ohio coeds were permitted to stay
out 30 minutes past the usual 1
a.m. Saturday deadline provided
that either they or their dates
paid a penny for each minute ov-
ertime.
About $180 was collected by the
association as the women stayed
out for a combined total of 300
hours.
HOOD COLLEGE'S student gov-
ernment has opened its legislative
sessions, to the public for the first
Boston Theologist
Will Give Lecture
Prof. Allan Knight Chalmers, of
the Boston University School of
Theology, will give the second
Henry Martin Loud lecture for
1952-53 at 7 p.m. today in the
Wesley Lounge of the First Metho-
dist Church.
His topic will be "The World
We Want."
Prof. Chalmers will also deliver
a -sermon at the worship service,
to be held at 10:45 a.m. in the
church. He will speak on "This Is
My Signature."

time in its history. Members of
the governing body also voted to
open their judicial sessions to the
public if the person involved in
the particular case consented.
The steps were taken in an at-
tempt to halt resentment result-
ing from having closed meetings,
when the general student body
knew nothing of how their repre-
sentatives voted.
A professor at Ohio State Col-'
lege has been delving into the
early lives of American movie
stars.
According to the Ohio State
Lantern, he had difficulty in un-
covering anything about Gypsy
Rose Lee's childhood, but found
that Tallulah Bankhead was tem-
porarily cured of her temper tan-
trums by having buckets of water
poured over her at the age of four.

A MEMBER of Cornell's Stu-
dent Council proposed withdraw-
ing from the National Student As-
sociation on the grounds that the
Cornell organization was not get-
ting its money's worth from the
$400 which the Student Council
must pay to NSA.

Prof. G. O. Sayles, of the his-
tory department of Queen's Uni-
versity, Belfast, Northern Ireland,

theatre.
The lecture will be presented
