Another discussion group will pro-

singing around campus for talent
Singer composed half of the
music for two Union Operas, "Lace
It Up" in 1950 and "Go West,
Madam" in 1951. The orchestra
will play several numbers from
these operas. They will also fea-
ture a special arrangement of
"Michigan," which Singer wrote

Members of the Hal Singer or-
chestra include Jim Phelps on gui-
tar; Dick Potter, string bass;
Royce Armstrong and Kay Meisen
on trombone, with Arnold Halley

The group will present a vocal

To be eligible for membership in
Mortar Board, in addition to thet
recommendation, a coed must have
a grade average at least three-
tenths of a point above the over-
all campus women's average. ThisI
average is figured through the fall
semester preceding tapping.
As long as the average meets the}
requirements, however, no furtherz

the members hope to get a bet-
