Braces Like Dressmaker
By BECKY CONRAD
Although he fits a brace like
dressmakers fashion dresses, the
bracemaker at the University Hos-
pital Orthopedic Appliance Shop
follows a doctor's prescription in-
stead of a Vogue pattern.
From leather, sheet and bar
metal, standard metal forms, foam
rubber fabrics and springs Hospi-
tal artisans fashion appliances to
aid patients of the huge institu-
AMONG THESE appliances are
corsets used by polio patients to
support damaged chest muscles.
Forester collars, another of their
products, are leather-covered
stainless steel or aluminum forms
which straighten the heads of
Fastening at the bottom of a
leg brace, stirrups keep the ap-
pliance from sliding.
The shop's shoe department
builds up shoes with extra-thick
the patients' measurements. Er-
rors in measuring are adjusted at
the final fitting.
From a diagram drawn by the
bracemaker,hmetal pieces are
shaped to the measurements,
fastened together, covered with
leather and pads. The doctor
who placed the request and the
patient himself check the fin -
ished product for comfort and
Each worker in the shop takes
pride in making not only func-
tional but artistic braces. Doc-
tors believe braces and other or-
thopedic appliances shorten the

walking, and are a major part of
The Stryker truning frame,
another such appliance provides
an ingenious way of turning
bed-ridden patients who are re-
stricted to a minimum of activ-
ity. It was developed at the Uni-
versity by Dr. Homer Stryker,
The bottom of the metal frame
on which the patient lies is cov-
ered with a foam rubber mattress.
To turn the patient, a second well-
padded steel frame is strapped
over the invalid to the lower one.
The two-part frame can then be
revolved laterally at prescribed in-
tervals without disturbing the pa-
The method is used with spinal
conditions and severe burn cases
which must be kept still. A shop
worker called the process a "must"
for broken neck patients.

Klein Finds High Level
Of Musical Talent Here
By CYNTHIA BOYES
They call him "Uncle Maynard"
and every student in the music
school agrees that he's a "wonder-
Prof. Maynard Klein returns the
compliment, for he thinks the
"level of talent and enthusiasm
for singing on this campus is the
greatest I've found anywhere I've
HIS EXTENSIVE musical train-
ing and background have given
the conductor of University choirs
an impressive basis for judgment
of his groups. From the time he
took 22 piano lessons at the age of
eight and quit to take up trom-
bone, he has made music a con-
His work at the University re-
flects this love of music. Since
coning here five years ago to
conduct the University Choir,
Prof. Klein has organized and
directed singing groups of var-
ious sizes and types ranging
from the large extra-curricular
Arts Chorale to the recently or-
ganized Air Force Choir, consist-
ing of forty men's voices.
At least once a week he makes
a trip to Detroit to conduct re-
hearsals of the Rackham Sym-
phony Choir and Rackham Sing-
ers, both Extension Service groups
which Klein organized four years

"The Contrite Spirit," a one-act
Christmas play, will be presented
on Michigan Report, a University
Television show, at 6 p.m. Satur-
day over WWJ-TV.
The story concerns the innkeep-
er's family on the night Christ
was born. It was adapted for tele-
vision by Martha DeLano, who
also will be associate director of

tha R. Beck, James E. Lynch, G.

* A *
this energy on organizing choirs
stems from belief that "choral mu-
sic can be a great cultural force in
the several communities to which
our students are going."
His idea of the prerequisites
for a good choral singer are
"less than those in almost any
other performance idiom." He
believes a person "needs but a
fair voice, the will to sing, and
a love for fine music and he
f may become an important part
in the making of important mu-
Important music from the realm
of choral literature is the kind
Prof. Klein likes best to perform.
He is interested also in trying un-
usual music with the choirs and
presenting new works. Under his
direction, new compositions by
Prof. Ross Lee Finney and Prof.
Leslie Bassett of the School of
Music have been introduced.
However, Prof. Klein believes his
most gratifying experience at the
University was last year's presen-
tation of Bach's "St. Matthew
Passion" with 1,600 high school
students imported to sing with
faculty soloists, the University Or-
chestra and chorus. The perform-
ance will be repeated this year.
Prof. Klein received hisnmasters
degree in music education at the
University, specializing in vocal
and instrumental music. After
graduation, he became conductor
of orchestra and choral work at
Tulane University where he re-
mained until 1948 when he 're-
turned to Ann Arbor.
Throughout his life, Klein has
been surrounded with music. His
wife and son play the violin and
his daughter plays flute. Besides
his regular teaching and conduct-
ing work, he has for the last ele-
ven years been director of choirs
