Ambition, Drive Labels Lunn

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The more flamboy-
ant sections of this account were
gathered in off-guard moments which
we are beginning to regret. IHL.)
"Harry Lunn speaking."
So goes the deep-voiced tele-
phone greeting of Harry Hyatt
Lunn, Jr., retiring managing edi-
tor of The Daily.
Art Connoisseur and honors
student in economics, the one-
time high school thespian has in
four years dabbled in almost every
campus activity outside athletics.
To The Top
In some, his talents have carried
him to the top.
Journalist Lunn provided his
own answer when he asked a fel-
low Young Republican as a fresh-
man, "What about this Daily, is it
hard to get to the top?"
Joining the staff as a sophomore,
the fair-haired Detroiter moved in
quick, successive steps from night
desk to the northwest corner of
the senior edit office.
As a writer he is said to have a
clear, decisive writing style and
an editor's ability to see the core
of a problem and dig away at it
for a story.
A persistent doodler Lunn satis-
fies his artistic whim in the art
galleries of Ann Arbor and De-
troit. Two water-colors, one by
Richard Wilt, the other by the
late Prof. Carlos Lopez, are among
the best acquisitions in his budding
An Odd Collection
His acquisitive instinct have al-
so brought a dozen odd snuffboxes
into his possession with a sizeable
addition to his collection on its
way from Ireland with a friend,
Bill McIntyre, '52.
Music lover Lunn prefers Pou-
lenc and Hindemith while his lit-
erary side leans toward Carson
McCullers Tennessee Williams,
Arthur Miller, William Faulkner
and tie modern school of writing
in general.
Born and raised in Detroit, the
21-year-old economics major, came
to the University with a good aca-
demic record, background in high
school activities and tinged with
the desire to work on The Daily.
His interest in campus affairs
was immediate and diverse. On
the one hand he joined the Young
Republicans and although describ-
ed during the '52 political cam-
paign as the 'Neanderthal-type'
party liner, friends say that four
years and The Daily have mel-
lowed him along more liberal lines.
Sometimes accused of being a
joiner Lunn is a member of Acacia
fraternity; Sigma Delta Chi, pro-
fessional journalism fraternity;
Scabbard and Blade; Sphinx and
Named Long Tongue Lunn by
the Tribe, one of his colleagues
says he is able to reverse his stand
on an issue in the middle of a
sentence without anyone knowing
As a military man Cadet Cap-
tain Lunn was once named an
outstanding cadet for his ROTC
activities. A second lieutenancy in
the Army awaits him sometime
after graduation.
Student Recital
Dorine Reifler, '54SM, pianist,
will give a recital at 8:30 p.m. to-
day in Auditorium A, Angell.Hali.
Her program will include works
by Bach, Chopin, Hindemith and

To List Data'
On Findings
A complete encyclopedia con-,
taining listings and descriptions of
scientific apparatus for the pro-
tection of factory workers will be
the ultimate outcome of the Sym-
posium on Instrumentation for In-
dustrial Hygiene.
Under the auspices of the Uni-
versity's Institute of Industrial
Health, the symposium ending to-
morrow includes participants from
over 200 industrial firms and has
over 300 individual registrants.
Phillip Drinker of Harvard Uni-
versity, inventor of the iron lung
for polio patients, will speak dur-
ing the conference banquet at 6:30
p.m. today at the Union.

dents subpoenaed before the Clar-
dy committee as particularly en-
couraging examples.
Commenting on the importance
of preserving the ability to dissent
and occasionally preach heresy as
vital to the best interests of the
