Another projected LYL front,
the Karl Marx Society, appears
to have run up a blind alley in
Its attempt to gain University
recognition. Regarding the Karl
Marx group the League's secret

"League education on campus
has been very poor. We should at-
tempt to see established a variety
of study groups to interest a larg-
er section of students-economics,
philosophy, physics, the Negro
question, psychology and Ameri-

ions about the establishment of
a Karl Marx Society as a recog-

BUT LYL efforts to secure a
faculty supervisor for the Marx
group have met with no success.
Though several professors have
been approached, they have re-
fused to sponsor the group.
Several League members are in
the forefront of the projected stu-

Society at its organizational meet-
ing), Stephen Smale, Omar Kid-

Another member is Norman
Klein, who has taken part in
LYL's activities in New York

meetings in both localities. .

AUTHOR OF "BLUE TANGO":
Anderson To Appear at Hill
By CYNTHIA BOYES
Ann Arborites will have an op-
portunity to hear Leroy Anderson,
popular writer of "Blue Tango,"
conduct the University Symphony
band in a group of his own com-
positions at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow
in Hill Auditorium.
According to Billboard Maga-
zine's poll, "Blue Tango" was the
biggset selling record of 1952, yet
its composer "never thought it
would be popular."
* * ii
COMMENTING on the diffi-
culty of writing popular music,
the well-known 'composer noted
that it must be simple and have
a direct appeal to eyerybody. Only
one out of every 36 published
songs ever becomes very popular,
he said, and no composer can
guegs his own popularity.
This being 'the case, Ander-
son must have had many pleas-
ant surprises when such songs
as "Sleighride," "Syncopated
Clock," a Hit Parade tune in
1951, and "Jazz Pizzicato" be-
came national favorites. His
most recent big success,- "Bluie
Tango" was found by Billboard
magazine to be the song most
played by disc jockeys in 1952.
Anderson attended Harvard
University where he received his
master's degree in music. As an
undergraduate he played trom-
bone in the Harvard band and in
his senior year became musical
director of the band. The sym-
phonic arrangements of college
songs he wrote for them are still

ACLU SURVEY SHOWS:
Editors Optimistic About Civil Liberties
By ALICE BOGDONOFF
Newspaper editors apparantly
do not take a "civilization at the
barricades" attitude towards the
status and future for civil lib-
Instead, editors of papers in 19
major cities who participated in a
survey conducted last month by
the American Civil Liberties
Union, were generally calm and
opitimistic about the outlook for
civil liberties, the survey reported.
A majority of the editors expressed
the belief that despite specific
threats to civil liberties, condi-
tions are better than a year ago.
IN THE CITIES reporting, the
editors concluded that:
1. There is continued improve-
ment in race relations, although
as one editor observed, "there
is a long way to go."
2. The widespread post-Korea
practice of requiring loyalty oaths
of many groups apparantly has
abated; suggestions for oaths
were opposed successfully in two
3. Court trials are generally
fair, but the public was reported
To Attend Council
Prof. George G. Cameron, chair-
man of the Department of Near
Eastern Studies, and Prof. Douglas
D. Crary, of the anthropology de-
partment, will attend a meetingof
the Near East Committee of the
Social Science Research Council
in New York City today.
to be little concerned with cases
involving passport refusal.
4. Academic freedom is being
preserved for teachers in most of
the communities responding.
5. Investigations locally of al-
leged disloyal and subversive per-
sons appeared to be declining.
L. S. FANNING, managing edi-
tor of ,the San Francisco Chron-
icle commented that "probably the
greatest single danger to our civil
liberties are the super-patriots."
Cited by an Iowa paper editor
as so called "super partiots"
were the V.F.W., the American
-Legion and Amvets who, the
editorial writer claimed, are
"constantly alerted to protest
the appearance of certain speak-
ers." "But," the writer pointed
out, "these groups no longer
even talk about breaking up a
meeting to which they object."
Brewster P. Campbell, executive
city editor of the Detroit Free
Press and former Managing Edi-
tor of The Daily told the ACLU
that "there is a constant threat to
the free exercise of civil liberties."
IN THE REALM of race rela-
tions, most editors believed that
the citizens in their areas favored
education rather than legislation
for improving race relations. One
who did not hold this view was
James Kerney Jr., editor of the
Trenton Times who wrote that
"New Jersey has a successful
FEPC law and the public attitude
as a result of its success appears
to favor a Federal law."
The Florida St. Petersburg
Times said that school authorities
and the Citizens Advisory Commit-
tee for Schools have stood firm
against pressure by a private
group to "exercise 'patriotic' cen-
sorship of school textbooks."
LEROY ANDERSON, COMPOSER OF "BLUE TANGO," WILL
BE GUEST CONDUCTOR AT HILL AUDITORIUM

choirmaster, he returned to Har-
vard graduate school for four
years, majoring in Scandanavian
languages. With his knowledge of
Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Ger-
man and Icelandic, he entered the
army intelligence in 1942 as a pri-
vate, served with American forces
in Iceland and was discharged a
captain in 1946.
He then returned to his pre-war
job as arranger for the Boston
Pops Orchestra where he was fre-
quently a guest conductor.
According to Anderson, thej
ideas for his songs, 36 of which
have been published, were not
inspired by anything in partic-
ular but came to his mind "as
a result of constantly looking
for them. The more you think
of ideas, the more ideas you
His melodies are never conceiv-
ed by sitting at a piano and pick-
ing them out. He thinks away
from the piano and uses it only
to check on how his ideas sound
or to play accompaniment.
His technique apparently has
given results. Besides the hit songs
to his credit, his orchestra has re-
corded two albums entitled "Le-
roy Anderson Conducts" Vol. I
and II, and a record of "A Christ-
mas Festival." His "Irish Suite"
of six songs will be released in
Following his first rehearsal
with the band on Thursday, An-
derson had only the highest praise
for them. "It is a wonderful
band," he said, "of professional
standard. They are flexible, and
alert, and respond immediately."
