NOTED STARS-Anne Baxter, Raymond Massey and Tyrone Power are welcomed by Lecture Series
official Mrs. Lawrence M. Upham as they arrived in Ann Arbor prior to last night's performance
of "John Brown's Body." Also participating in the civil war drama is the Walter Schumann 20 voice

8:30 p.m. today. In addition to performance demands, the stars plan to attend today's homecoming
game as well as pre and post game functions.

While the campus subordinates
Halloween to Homecoming festiv-
ities today and Ann Arbor children
reverse traditions to "beg" for the
American Friends Service Commit-
tee and for the United Nations In-
ternational Children's Emergency
fund rather than for themselves,
Halloween remains an ancient and
William R. Leslie, associate pro-
fessor in the history department,
outlined a few of the "hundred and
one" customs traditional to the
holiday. "Halloween," he explain-
ed, "is derived from three sources.
The first, the professor said, "is
ancient druidism, not the campus
variety, when on this night the
Prince of the Never-Never World
called in all bad souls who had
died within the year for a big cel-
* * *
"THE SECOND," Leslie contin-
ued, "results in the present Brit-
ish tradition of cracking nuts, and
comes from a Roman festival for
Pomona, goddess of fruit. Then the
Christians added their bit by mak-
ing Halloween literally the eve of
the hallowed All Saints' Day on
Leslie also recommended Hal-
loween as an appropriate time to
decide the identity of one's part-
ner in life, and outlined' several
methods. "It's simple," he in-
structed. "Just pare an apple,
keep it all in one piece, whirl it
around your head three times,
and let go. When it falls on the
floor it will take the shape of the
letter of your life companion' s
Another suggestion is applicable
only to women students. "Girls,"
he advised, "should comb their
hair and eat an apple at the same
time, before a mirror. If you're
lucky, you'll see the face of your
future husband very hazily in the
Halloween also has rather mor-
bid origins, Leslie recalled. In an-
cient times everyone in a party
around a bonfire would place a
stone amid the dying embers, and
return, the next day to see which
stones had been disturbed. Any
stones displaced foreshadowed the
death, within, the coming year, of
