Union Opera Refuses Joe E. Brown

Speakers Discuss Difficulties
In Treating Delinquency Cases

Joe E. Brown tried out for the
1954 Union Opera yesterday but
he couldn't make it.
First off, he wasn't a student at
the University. ("He was a natural
for this year's production," saidf
Jay Grant, '55, general chairman.
"But-he's not a University stu-
Tryouts Start Tomorrow
Secondly, he was a little too
early. ("Cast tryouts for the Un-
ion Opera will be held from 3 to 5
p.m. beginning tomorrow and last-
ing through Wednesday in Rm.
3G of the Union," said Guy Moul-
throp, '56, promotions chairman.)
Finally, on December 8, 9 and 10
he won't be in Ann Arbor for the
local performances of the Opera.
(Bob Gillow, '56, roadshow chair-
man, said "There will also be six
performances from Buffalo to Chi-
cago during the annual Christmas
vacation roadshow swing through
the Midwest.")
Rootin' for Michigan
Joe flashed his famous smile in
an interview before the game yes-
terday and said he was "rootin''
for Michigan, but he wasn't "bet-
From here Joe will head for To-
ledo and a two-week run with
"Show Office," his current musi-
cal. His home in Los Angeles, Cal.,
will be the next destination.
Script Approved
This year's script, approved last
week by the Union Executive
Board, was written by Murry Fry-
mer, '56. It presents an explana-
tion in song, dance and story of
how women students were first
accepted at the University.
All parts for the Opera will be
filled from the competitive tryout
sessions to be held this week.
Adds Members
The new four-year program of
the School of Nursing has 534 stu-
dents currently enrolled.
Qualifying the students as
teachers, the present program
makes it possible to recruit and
train more nurses aides, techni-
cians and practical nurses, ac-
cording to Miss Rhoda Reddig,
school director.

Psychologist I
More Efficieu
FT. BENNING, Ga. (N)- - Dr.
Francis E. Jones wants to make
a more efficient killer out of the
American soldier.
In his opinion, a doughfoot who
uses two bullets to kill one man
is 50 per cent off.
A psychologist on loan from
George Washington University to
the Army, Jones is evolving and
testing methods to make more
competent killers.
"We called in 100 experts," said
Jones. "They were skilled com-
bat veterans of Korea, Europe and
the south Pacific. We asked them
what sort of targets a man could
expect to encounter in battle.
Targets Classified
"After interviewing them, we
broke down targets into two types,
detectable and nondetectable. We
found that of the detectable variety
25 per cent were stationary and
appeared at 250 to 500 yards. An-
other 25 per cent were moving
targets at ranges of 50 to 300 yards,
and 50 per cent were targets
which just popped up anywhere
from 50 to 250 yards.
"Then we found," Jones con-
tinued, "that combat involved a
large number of targets that can
be located, or deduced, from the
lay of the land or a puff of smoke
or dust."
On the basis of his interviews,
Jones now is trying to set up a
training course to teach men to
locate and destroy both types of
targets, whether it is daylight or

it War Killers
Jones believes that teaching a
man to locate a target-say a hid-
den machine gun-is a valuable
morale factor too.
"If a soldier is unable to pick
up targetsquickly, he becomes dis-
couraged and retires to his hole.
Exposure without results would
make any sensible man get down.
"Fear is an important factor in
combat. If a man is in his hole
doing nothing but getting the
shakes, he isn't very useful. We
believe a man should be doing
something. If you can keep him
busy scanning for targets, it will
take his mind off his fear.
"The man who keeps .busy is the
man who will fight. In any combat
outfit you'll notice there are some
men who will keep busy no mat-
ter what the situation.
Keep Men Busy
"When they aren't fighting, they
write letters, trying to clean them-
selves up, clean their gear or just
go about improving their holes or
trenches. The men who do nothing
are the ones who tend to brood.
These are the ones who crack up.
"I made the invasion at Tarawa
with the Marines in World War II.
When we were going into the beach
I noticed that the troops crouched
in the boat were scared. The only
man who was really calm was the
Navy coxswain. He was the only
man who had something to do and
yet he was the man most exposed.
As soon as the troops hit the beachI
and had a job to do, they were
all right."

During its week-end conference,
the University Press Club was told
by two University experts on juve-
nile delinquency that, contrary to
popular belief, there is no single
answer to the problem of delin-
Prof. Willard J. Hendrickson of
the medical school said that the
problem must be treated on an in-
dividual and "whole personality"
In past study of delinquency,
Prof. William C. Morse, education-
al director of the Fresh AirCamp,
said that first parents, then the
school, then comic books were
blamed for delinquency.
"Now we are searching for a
single remedy for this problem,"
he commented. "We cannot expect
to pour money into one aspect of
the problem and turn out a com-

munity free of juvenile delinquen-
cy," he added.
In another phase of Ann Arbor

League president Mrs. Clyde H.
Coombs said the group has pre-
pared 20,000 copies of a flier asking
support for a proposition on the
Nov. 2 ballot which would authorize
a county expenditure of $110,000 for
a new detention home.
Built as a one-story construction,
the cottage-type building on the
County Infirmary grounds would
be used for the temporary deten-
tion of juveniles while their cases
were being handled by juvenile di-
vision of the probate court.
