The Michigan State Men's Glee
Club has been a source of enter-
tainment for Michigan people since
1880. It is directed by Edward L.
Richmond, a graduate of the Chi-
cago Conservatory, who came to
Michigan State in 1952.
The repertoire of the Glee Club
can almost be said to be boundless
because if the director or a mem-
ber of the Club hears a new song
that appeals to him, they get the
music and learn it. Final arrange-
ments come later.
Among the favorite numbers they
perform are the "Lord's Prayer,"
and Clow Edwards' "Into the
Night." Besides being heard on
concert stages, the club has been
active on radio and as recording
artists. In 1953 the Glee Club with
the band and acapella choir com-
pleted a record album of M.S.C.
Tickets for the joint concert are
still on sale in the lobby of the Ad-
ministration Building.

When asked about his role of
"alarm clock" for the Dekes,
"Moose" replied, "Well, I just ask
'em if they want to come easy, or
come out in the rough." He seldom
uses the "water technique" on the
men, who have a "dorm" sleeping
system, but sometimes bribes them
with the news of hot bacon, eggs
and sweet rolls for breakfast.
"Some of 'em are really hard to
get up," he said.
As chef for DKE parties, don-
ned in a white coat and chef's hat,
and as porter on weekends, Muir-
head has become well acquainted
with many University students and
knows most of the Deke alumni.

It's definitely the top of the class!
