A Great Team, A Great Band,
And a Flash-Card Section

MICHIGAN FOOTBALL and all things con-
nected with Saturday'afternoon presenta-
tions at Michigan Stadium have long been
equal to any grid production in the United
The team has long been synonymous with
college football power. Since 1898 when the
Wolverines joined the Western Conference, Mi-
chigan has won or shared 18 Conference cham-
pionships while amassing an overall total of 432
victories against only 129 defeats. Marching
Band halftime productions take second place to
no other in the country.
Crowds at Michigan Stadium and the Sta-
dium itself are the largest of a collegiate na-
ture in the United States. During the late 19-
40's crowds of 90,000 plus occurred with regu-
HOWEVER, LAST Saturday it was called to
our attention again that one phase of Michi-
gan's football production is far below first
class. It's even in the "shape up or ship out"
categoroy. We refer to the Wolverine Club-
sponsored Flash Card Section. During half-
time of the Illinois game the section tried to
form a liberty bell, a Block 'M', and unfurling
American flag while the band was playing
Stars and Stripes Forever, and an Indian witU
an "I" formed within it standing for the Illi-
nois Indians, and other pictures.
It is debatable where the blame lies but the
formations failed to impress observers on the
distant sidelines. When signals were given by
the directors on the field the cards went up
but far from simultaneously. Usually a couple
of people managed to read the directions
wrong so a pair of off-color cards could be ob-

served blotching what was intended to be a
solid color field. On two occasions fans could-
n't even discern the intended figure. (The Lib-
erty Bell and the Indian with the I)
Student apathy to the section is partially at
fault. Most aren't interested in putting on a
good performance but rather in the advan-
tages of a seat on or near the 50 yard line.
FLASH CARD sections can be impressive.
Any football fan who has seen UCLA play USC
in their annually televised grid clash will at-
test to this. However, if the section is to con-
tinue at Michigan football games reorganiza-
tion is necessary. In the first place the section
is too small to form any impressive designs
such as those shown on the West Coast.
The 'Block M' section should be doubled in
size. A vigorous campaign would be necessary
to induce enough students to join but if the
campaign was designed to make students proud
to be a part of the group it might be success-
ful. Campaigns emphasizing the value of get-
ting a good seat help to deemphasize the im-
portance of good performance in the section.
It will be argued that collecting that many stu-
dents for a flash card practice session would
be impossible. However, if the section is to be
maintained the timing must be improved to
keep the performance on a level with other
phases of Saturday entertainment at Michigan
Stadium. If students aren't interested in spend-
ing an extra two hours a week to make Block
'M' a credit to the University then it would be
b'etter to reopen the 50 yard line sections for
pure spectator use.

Election Leaves Deep
Party Bitterness

Menus in Men's Quad
Lack Meal Appeal

A TE RECENTLY facing such "meals" as
Meat Salad on Lettuce Leaves, Corned
Beef Hash and Barbecue Beef on a Bun, many
of the residents of South Quad would almost
welcome beef birds.
In all fairness, we must acknowledge the un-
doubted ability of our dieticians to supply us
with well-balanced and nutritionally valuable
meals. However, palatableness should also be
taken into consideration. The height of nutri-
tional efficiency was the development of those
concentrated food pills supplied to our G.I.'s
during war time. In order to avoid serious loss

of morale, however, these pills were not used
except in emergency.
PERHAPS OUR meals emerge in the condi-
tion which they do because of a need for eco-
nomy in their preparation. Better food costs
more money. But is it economical when, to
cite one recent example, a hundred or more
Buns of Barbecue Beef are left uneaten on the
plates of impressionable South Quad diners?
Let's get the menus improved by working
with the dieticians in a friendly, respectful and
cooperative manner, but: let's get the menus
improved! -Ben Wise


At Rackham Auditorium
Stanley Quartet (Gilbert Ross, Emil Raab,
violins; Robert Courte, viola; Oliver Edel,
All Beethoven program: Quartet in D, Op.-
18, No. 3; Quartet in E minor, Op. 59, No. 2;
Quartet in F, Op. 135.
T HIS, THE third concert in the Stanley Quar-
tet's Beethoven series, featured the best
playing that has been heard from the Quartet
this season. The players came close to achiev-
ing an excellent blend, the ensemble left little
to be desired, and there was much that was
exciting in the interpretations. For instance,
the Quartet in D which opened the program
flowed along in easy, limpid fashion for the
first and second movements, and took on a
tremendous amount of verve in the third and
The second "Rasumovsky" quartet, Op. 59,
No. 2, received perhaps the finest playing of
the afternoon. There was something exhilar-
ating about the way the performers dug into
the first movement, with its near-percussive
accents alternating with smoothly flowing
melodic lines-and this excitement carried
through the rest of the composition. This work
has for some time been a favorite of mine. It
is a wonderful, unified piece, full of those little
musical "incidents" which cannot be justified
verbally, and must simply be written off as
pure genius. I would cite the trio of the third
movement, with the little Russian folk tune
which was later used by Mussorgsky in "Boris,"
and the main theme of the finale, whose har-
monic twists and turns never lose their fresh-
ness. It was good to hear the work in such a
fine, straightforward performance, in which
there was no tampering with the music, just
the playing of it. This also holds for the play-
ing of the Op. 135 quartet which concluded the
concert. The curious scherzo movement needs
a really good performance to come off-and it
came off. The slow movement was a little less
successful stylistically and ensemble-wise, but
the performance as a whole was worthy of this
most successful concert.

the classification of great music. There is
scarcely a composition in symphonic literature
more deserving of the title "old favorite" than
Tschaikovsky's fifth symphony; this symphony
also ranks as one of the most important and
beautiful in the late nineteenth century.
With this symphony, however, it is even more
Important that each successive performance be
alive. Unlike their German relations, the sym-
phonies of Brahms, the symphonies of Tschai-
kovsky rely upon only one musical factor for
their success. This is melody.
The performance of this symphony on Sun-
day by George Szell and the Cleveland Orches-
tra did not collapse, but it was routine. Only
in the fastest passages did it come to life, and
then too late since it is only in the last move-
ment that a fast tempo predominates. Perhaps
this failure was due to the austerity of Szell's
conducting, perhaps to lack of interest in the
piece by orchestra and conductor both. At any
rate the melodies instead of soaring or singing
gracefully and elegantly never seemed to get
beyond a reading. A quick thought back to
Szell's performance here last year of Schubert's
seventh symphony shows that he is capable of
much more.
Only the performance of Smetana's "Bar-
tered Bride" overture had the true excitement
of performance. The extremely fast tempo with
which Szell conducted the overture provided
the germ from which sprang a performance
both vital and orchestrally brilliant.
Szell has made the Cleveland Orchestra a
precision instrument catering exactly to his
every motion. This guarantees technically su-
perb performances, and such was the case with
Debussy's "La Mer."
It is a rare day when a work by an American
composer is found on a program of the Uni-
versity Musical Society. It is a pity that when
such a day comes it has to be a work by Henry
Cowell. The Hymn and Fuguing Tune No. 3 is
not dislikable music. It has charm and that
Americana flavor which comes from orchestra-
ting tunes derived from folk melodies. How-
ever it should not be confused with the music
of a composer like Copland, who likewise uses
a folk influence but for a much more profound
expression. The Hymn and Fuguing Tune is
related more to works of small scope like the
music of Satie.
But oh how this music is unrepresentative 6f
what is happening among composers in this
country today. Cowell's music has not the as-
pirations of most contemporary American mu-
sic, his significance as a force in American mu-
sic has been negligible, though widely publi-
cized. What about Copland, Piston, Sessions,
these are American greats who rarely make our
orchestral programs and absolutely never in

WASHINGTON. - Millions of TV
viewers saw what went on in Re-
publican and Democratic headquar-
ters on election night-as far as
the formal statements and outside
congratulations were concerned.
But not many saw the suspense,
the headaches and the heartaches
inside both party headquarters as
the up-and-down returns rolled in.
What happened there gives in-
sight regarding the depth of party
bitterness and the problems of the
So here is a quick look-see at
some of the backstage events the
television cameras missed:
Democratic Headquarters - Real
Democratic inner sanctum was not
Steve Mitchell's elaborate suite on
election night but the small single-
room hideaway of ex-Senate secy.
Les Biffle ... Here a select inner
circle of top Demos were saying
what they really thought as each
bit of news flowed across Biffle's
desk ... There was a tiny radio
tuned into NBC where the news
slant was definitely pro-GOP. Two
telephones rang intermittently, and
those in the room strained their
ears to catch Les Biffle's soft, un-
emotional voice ... Around him
sat John Horne, Sam Brightman,
Ken Kirkhead, Joseph Keenan, for-
mer Justice Department official
who prosected the Japanese war
criminals. Steve Mitchell, between
handshaking and radio-TV appear-
ances, joined the group ... The
zero hour was between 3 and 4
a.m. Senator Clements called from
Kentucky. "We're in the closest
race since 1916," he said. (That
was the year Charles Evans
Hughes went to bed thinking he
was president, only to wake up
next morning to find Woodrow Wil-
son elected.) ... Someone put a
slip of paper in Biffle's hand.
Carroll had conceded in Colorado.
The Democrats had counted him
a sure winner. Gillette was licked
in Iowa ... A CBS television com-
mentator had erroneously reported
Senator Murray 2,000 behind with
almost all the votes counted in
Montana ... Biffle picked up the
phone. Charlie Murray, son of the
Senator, on theline from Butte,
reported all's well in Montana.
The TV report had been wrong-
Murray ahead by 2,000 votes.
Cracks Steve Mitchell: "We win
by a landslide in Montana."
New Jersey Slips - Someone
from Wyoming called: "O'Mahoney
ahead by more than a thousand-
we're in." ... "Another landslide
for us," commented the caustic
Biffle. He put the receiver down
... Reported the NBC commenta-
tor: "Saltonstall takes the lead
from Furcolo in Massachusetts."
It's nearly 4 o'clock . .. "Get Mrs.
Furcolo at the State House," says
Biffle to his secretary, Betty Dar-
ling. Mrs. Furcolo says there is
still a chance if they don't steal
it ... Mrs. Stanley Woodward,
wife of the former ambassador,
sticks her head in the door. "Steve,
what's going on-I can't figure it
out." . .. "Under-statement of the
evening," someone quips ... Re-
ports from New Jersey are coming
in at a terrifying pace. Howell,
with a 97,000 lead with nearly 90
per cent of the voting districts in,
was counted a sure winner. "I
called Governor Meyner," says
Steve Mitchell, "and told him to
get the state police to lock up the
boxes. They're pulling a fast one
or. us in Jersey. With strange, un-
natural regularity, every box is
being reported 400 votes against
George Bender of the GOP takes
a substantial lead in Ohio. Joe
Keenan, who lived in Cleveland,
can't understand why Cuyahoga
County is holding back. "Maybe
they want to see what Hamilton

Chairman Hall concedes victory
for the Democrats in the House
... A slip of paper is handed
Biffle. He passes it around. Batista
wins his election in Cuba by 87
per cent of the vote. "Let's charter
a plane and go to Havana," says
the nervous Mitchell.
Charles Murray, son of the sena-
tor, calls back. He had just talked
to O'Mahoney, and Joe thinks he's
in in Wyoming ... Neuberger in
Oregon was whittling down
Cordon's lead of 4,000 ... Joe
Keenan says Cuyahoga County and
Wayne County should determine
the Ohio and Michigan elections.
If the Democrats win either one
they will organize the Senate ...
Ken Harding of the Democratic
House Election Campaign Commit-
tee comes in. "We're 35 votes
ahead in the third district in Ore-
gon. Mrs. Edith Green will be the
first Democratic congresswoman
ever elected from Oregon....
And McCarthy's double in the
House, Congressman Kersten, has
been sunk by Henry Reuss in Mil-
waukee ... The Democrats began
to feel better.
Democratic Bitterness - At 5
a.m. Steve Mitchell quips: "Any-
thing over a one-vote lead any-
where is a Democratic landslide."
... General opinion: Joe Kennedy
Sr., licked Furcolo in Massachu-
setts. When his son Jack Kennedy
uns for re~election, the Massachu-
setts Italians will remember ---
The church issue licked Carroll in
Colorado . . . Harriman is worried
that Dewey will try to steal New
York on a recount ... Governor
Meyner was blamed by Mitchell
for what happened in New Jersey
'"Carelessness-not intentional"
was his description . . . Biffle was
bearish all evening - Mitchell
modestly bullish. Both were friend-
ly ... Biffle acted like a man
ready to continue where Mitchell
left off-when he steps down as
national chairman.
At 6 o'clock the meeting ad-
journed with this consensus: "If
Vice President 'McNixon' hadn't
pulled his Reichstag Fire tactics,
the Democrats would have done far
better. If these tactics continue,
American politics has something to
worry about."
GOP Headquarters-It was about
4:15 a.m. Bald, roly-poly Chairman
Len Hall was sitting in front of his
TV set. Some of the evening's
earlier gloom had evaporated. He
was feeling much better, figured
there was a good chance for the
Republicans to carry the Senate,
even retrieve some of those gover-
norships that seemed to be slipping
. . . Suddenly Steve Mitchell,
appeared on the TV screen. Hall
listened . .. Boiling over with re-
sentment at "McNixon" tactics,
Mitchell read a statement remind-
ing the electorate. that the Demo-
crats had waged a clean campaign,
had not induldged in below-the-belt
tactics ... The more Mitchell
talked, the redder Hall's face got.
Finally he exploded ... "Nuts!"
he said ... Then he went into a
private huddle with press advisers
to figure out an answer to Mitchell.
Three press agents, talking almost
at once, urged him to hold off ...
"Who's listening at 5 a.m.?" they
pleaded. "Tell them you'll give
your answer at 11 a.m. Wait until
people get out of bed in the morn-
ing." ... Finally Hall agreed. That
was why apress spokesman went
out front, told the press: "The
chairman believes this is not quite
the proper time to give his answer.
We won't know the full story until
Ike's Problem-This bitterness
points to Ike's greatest problem
during the next two years ...
Democrats like speaker Sam Ray-
burn who have been in Congress
for almost half a century are

What's the Fuss? ...
To the Editor:
W E the residents of the other
two dorms on the hill (Mosh-
er-Jordan) like beef birds and.
can't understand the fuss that oc-
curred at Lloyd. What's wrong
with good beef and stuffing? Since
the strikers didn't eat them, how
can they know what they taste
lake? They should try them. They
will probably find that they like
them, as we did. By the way, we
think the dietitians here are
great and are doing a good job.

Election Turnabout . .
To the Editor:
JN THE EARLY hours of the
morning of November 3, Sen-
ator Paul H. Douglas of Illinois
made a ranting charge that, be-
cause the downstate returns were
slow in being reported that Re-
publicans were fixing the results
to their own advantage. The Sen-
ator said that he had called in FBI
agents to check up on this. As ev-
eryone knows we had a similar
delay here in Michigan in Wayne
County, but no one got particu-
larly excited over it.
Mr. Douglas' action was very
childlike and naive considering
that most people know that the
voting in many areas of Cook
County is obviously corrupt with
all types of irregularities. Last
week this situation was under the
consideration of certain authori-
ties in Chicago and late Tuesday a
Federal Grand Jury subpoenaed
20 election officials and the rec-
ords of 14 Chicago precincts for
examination. I wonder if Mr.
Douglas and any of his supporters
realize that these districts are un-
der controlb of hacks from Mr.
Douglas' own party. Elsewhere
around the country many people
are also wondering how much Mr.
Harriman's victory by less than
10,000 votes in New York state is
due to similar irregulariites in the
Metropolitan area of New York
