Club. An instrumental group re-
mained along with the singers
and often gave a concert during
the early part of the program.
After the concert the musicians
remained to play for a dance to
round out the evening's enter-
tainment.
However, when the club plan-
ned to compete in the annual con-
test of the Intercollegiate Glee
Clubs they decided it was best to
separate from the instrumental
group. This was the final step in
the development of the Men's Glee
Club.
THE CLUB has sung coast to
coast, from New York City to Port-
land, Oregon, under the sponsor-
ship of alumni clubs, concert or-
ganizations, civic and service
groups and school music depart-
ments.
Appearing on television on the
Ed Sullivan Show and singing in
New York City's Town Hall, the
group has also been featured
in a movie short and has record-
ed a group of college songs for a
well-known firm.
For the last three years, the
Men's Glee Club has been stag-!
ing dual concerts with other groups .
on football weekends. In 1951 and
1952, the concerts were with Cor-
nell University, and in 1953 the:
Ohio State group came to Ann
Arbor for a joint concert after the
football game.
Along with their radio and tele-
vision shows, movie shorts and
tours, the Michigan Glee Club has
been seen or heard all over the
world.j

Lois Marshall, Canadian ora-
torio soprano and the pride of
Toronto, will make her Ann Arbor
debut at Hill Auditorium as solo-
ist in the second of the May Fes-
tival concerts at 8:30 p.m. tomor-
row.
Miss Marshall, one of the most
talked-of discoveries of the 1952-
53 season, who was stricken with
polio at the age of two, is a so-
prano "who has everything," ac-
cording to several New York pap-
ers and critics. Although she has
prepared for it many years in her
native Toronto, her success as a
singer seems a veritable overnight
affair to many.
WINNING the Naumburg Award
in May, 1952, Miss Marshall went
to New York to give her "prize-
winning" Town Hall recital in De-
cember of that year.
After making her radio debut
on Christmas Eve with her ren-
dition of "Silent Night," she was
engaged by Arturo Toscanini to
sing in his final presentation of
Beethoven's "Missa Solemnis" at
Carnegie Hall in March, 1953.
Miss Marshall was the Canadian
representative for the Sesquicen-
tennial celebration in Washington,
D.C., when she sang with the Na-
tional Symphony.
SIR ERNEST MacMillian, con-
ductor of the Toronto Symphony,
has chosen Miss Marshall as so-
prano soloist for the past seven
years for his annual performance
of Bach's "St. Matthew Passion,"
and she has also been selected re-
peatedly for his presentation of

Formal rules of parliamentary
procedure are important only as
long as they clarify or expand an
organization's constitution and
traditions, Prof. Edd Miller, of
the speech department stated dur-,
ing a lecture and discussion on
parliamentary procedure.
Planned to aid leaders of cam-
pus groups solve their procedural
problems, the semi-annual course
was held Tuesday evening in the
Union.
After defining the plan as "a
way of conducting business pri-
marily in large groups," Prof.
Miller divided his program into
three parts.
To begin, he dealt with the basic
principles of parliamentary pro-
cedure.
Of special interest was Prof.
Miller's observation that the most
important source of procedure to
follow was not a rulebook, but a
group's constitution and bylaws,
plus traditions.

JNCLUDED IN the evening's
agenda will be a film taken while
the show company was on tour
through Europe. Filmed by the
United States Information Service
in Vienna, the movie was produced
for showing in centers in German-
speaking lands.
Included in the picture is the
arrival of the company in Vien-
na, sightseeing, the official re-
ceptions, part of the show itself
and finally, part of a farewell
party given by the City of Vien-
na.
The film is accompanied

Stressing the vital part that tra-
dition plays in an organization, he
warned against being a 'pedantic
scholar on parliamentary rules.'
Rather, he pointed out, should the
books act as arbitrators
Dealing with the most fre-
quently used measures, Mr. Mil-
ler gave examples to explain
technicalities. He also discussed
common misuses of parliamen-
tary procedure, citing especially
the motion to 'lay on table.' This
action is an attempt to kill or
try the strength of a motion,
despite the common notion that
it merely postpones decision.
The second section of the pro-
gram was devoted to specific ques-

tions addressed to Prof. Miller by
the audience,
Difficulties which Miller cleared
up included the fact that the per-
son who makes a motion is given
the first opportunity to talk on
that motion. Also he pointed out
that the chairman may vote either
to create or break a tie
Electing John Winslow of Alpha
Delta Phi as president, the group
held a mock session for the re-
mainder of the evening. Dealing
with the hypothetical situation of
making the course a weekly af-
fair, arguments were advanced pro
and con with students actually
putting into practice the proced-
ures previously discussed.

ion Jaroom is s i , seai ng ar-
rangements for the program will
be on a first come, first served
basis, according to chairman Mark
Gallon.
Tonight's program has been
planned as a preview of the ap-
proaching student trip to see
the show. Scheduled for next
Wednesday, the trip is sponsor-
ed by the Union and open to all
students.
Reservations for the trip are
now being accepted from 3 to 5
p.m. today and tomorrow in the
Student Offices of the Union. The
price includes transportation to
Detroit and orchestra seats in the
theater.
Women making the trip have
been granted late permission, pro-
vided they get prior consent from
their housemothers.
