Classes Hear
Song Festival
By JANET SHEW
A music class by radio!
For the past four years many
students have been learning folk
music by radio, broadcast direct to
their music classrooms.
Originally designed to teach folk
songs to children of Michigan's
rural schools, "Festival of Song"
now includes not only rural, but
many consolidated and city schools
as well. Now in its fifth successful
year, it reaches over 35,000 stu-
dents weekly, in the first through
eighth grades.
Students who participate in this
music-instruction program have
special books of folk songs of for-
eign countries and the United
States.
Participation in the festivals,
held each spring, is the reward of
hard work and practice during the
year.
"Festival of Song" is originated
by station WUOM in Ann Arbor
and is broadcasted as a public
service by radio stations through-
out the state at 2 p.m. every Tues-
day and Thursday.
Taking part in the actual broad-
casts are Miss Edythe Albert, an
Instructor in music education; and
the University Quartet, composed
of Les Bennett, Eugenia McGaw,
Ida Nyberg and Mary Ellen Roosa,
students of music school.

By DEDE ROBERTSON
Hoosier born Prof. Philip A.
Duey, director of the Men's Glee
Club and Prof. of Voice, spends
his spare time working in his back
lot at his favorite hobby, organic
gardening.
He has turned the lot into a
fruit and vegetable garden. One
of his special beliefs in cultivating
a garden is that ."one should use
natural compost and leaves rather
than chemicals as fertilizers."
Prof. Duey declared "I am very
skeptical of the heavy use of fer-
tilizers and of the results of their
use on food." This type of garden-
ing is called organic gardening.
Autographed Bill
A dollar bill signed by Babe Ruth
is framed and mounted on the wall
of Prof. Duey's Music School of-
fice. He remarked that it was a
souvenir of a golf match between
Babe Ruth and himself in which he

program interest. For instance in
"Clementine," Prof. Duey has in-
serted a bit of French dialogue,
and,at an appropriate moment one
Glee Club member sobs realistic-
ally.
Now in his seventh year with the
University Men's Glee Club, Prof.
Duey has the knack of arranging
music to give variety to even time-
honored quartet numbers.
Professional Experience
He turned to teaching and glee
club work after many years of
professional experience. He is a
veteran of some 5,000 radio broad-
casts. Among them are appear-
ances on the first broadcasts of
six coast-to-coast programs.
Back in 1927, Prof. Duey was a
member of the original New York
cast of the musical comedy "Good
News." He made his opera debut
in Central City, Colo., in 1940 dur-
ing the summer Opera Festival
there.
Before joining the University of
Michigan faculty in 1947, Prof. Du-
ey was director of the music de-
partment at Butler University in
Indianapolis and choral director
at the Arthur Jordan Conservatory.
The Men's Glee Club will per-
form under Prof. Duey's direction
along with the Michigan State Col-
lege Glee Club, under the direc-
tion of Edward L. Richmond, at
8:30 p.m. Saturday in Hill Auditor-
ium.

Named after the Norwegian God
of the North Wind, the Ullr Ski
Club has been in activity since the
mid 30's.
The purpose of this organization
is to bring students together who
are interested in skiing. Trips are
planned during Christmas and East-
er vacations. At this time, students
with automobiles drive club mem-
bers to different ski resorts, such
as the favorite Boyne Mountain.
The group had a membership
of 125 members last year and
hopes to attain an equally large
number of men and women this
semester. Membership dues are
$2 a year.
Trips West
During the ski season, which
lasts up to spring vacation, the
club members go to Aspen, Col.
or as far as Alta, Utah. "Equip-
ment is not needed," said Pres.

club championship.
When he can find the time, Prof.
Duey said that he loves to fish,
.'strictly as an amateur." Collect-
ing limited modern editions of
classic books is another of his var-
ied hobbies.
Prof. Duey has performed in
"St. Matthew's Passion" as Jesus
and in Handel's "Messiah" per-
formances as Elijah. He has also
sung with Methodist and Congre-
gational church choirs.
Musical Meanings
In directing the University of
Michigan Glee Club, Prof. Duey
stresses "word meanings" first.
After Glee Club members have
learned the music and words, he
"trys to make the mfsic come to
life and to put across the musical
meaning." He said that he does not
have any fads or tricks for direct-
ing.
Given the "Duey treatment,"
even "Clementine" and "Casey
Jones," which ave been included
in Glee Club programs across the
nation for years, come out with a
freshness and sparkle that add to
