WORKED WITH BIIAVE-Former 'U' Student Pat McMahon
reads article about Indian leader Vinoba Bhave.
Fortmer Student Tells
Of Land-Gift Movement
By JIM DYGERTI
Pat McMahon is like her description of Vinoba Bhave, the man
with whom she toiled for a year and a half in India.
She was with him in spirit more than in person. She rarely
saw or spoke to the man whom she describes as quiet, and sincere
to the point that no one dares be insincere to his face,
But Miss McMahon, now 26 years old, helped carry on his work
in the villages of India, probably in the same quiet and sincere
manner in which she talks about her experiences with the Bhoodan
movement in India.
Having gone to India to study the Hindi language, she learned
of Bhave's land-gift movement, which is now in its third year.
"It seemed too immense," she comments now, "I couldn't under-

By going over the century mark,
the Wolverines established a new
Michigan and field house scoring'
record. The old mak of 100 points
was set against Valpariso in last
year's home opener.
A flurry of baskets in the last
two minutes of play enabled the-
Maize and Blue to reach and pass
the centu~ry mark. Don Eaddy re-
ceived two perfect passes from his
teammates, went in for easy lay-
ups, and with 1:52 remaining in
the contest, Michigan had 95
points. Two fouls by Tom Jorgen-
son and a field goal by the Wol-
verine captain, Paul Groffsky put'
Michigan only one point away
from tying a record.
With the seconds quickly tick-
ing away the roar of the crowd in-
creased in volume. When there
were only 28 seconds left in the
tilt Michigan fulfilled the desires
of its fans. Tom Maentz, a star
for the Maize and Blue on the
gridiron, flipped in a push shot
from' 15 feet out, his only basket
of the night.
Six Wolverine cagers scored in
double figures. Eaddy, a fleet 5-10
guard, was the high scorer of the
game as he whipped in nine field
goals out of 17 attempts and two
fouls, good for 20 points.
Sophomore Jim Shearon lived
up to his advance notices as he
notched 17 points on five field
goals and seven foul throws.

cent of his tries from the field,

Gets World Attention
Curiosity Starts Harpsichord Career
By DAVID KAPLAN
Curiosity and fascination started the career of Detroit harpsi-
chordist Alice Lungerhausen, '26SM.
Appearing in this weekend's performances of Handel's "Messiah,"
Mrs. Lungerhausen was graduated from Michigan as a piano major,
receiving a master's degree in music in 1931.
After a year's work in Vienna, studying piano, she went to
Chicago to study harpsichord with Philip Manuel. "I tried the harp-
sichord out of curiosity and was so fascinated by the instrument
that I pursued it."-
She has performed in solo recitals and concerts in Detroit, Ann
Arbor and Toledo. Previous to her last appearance at the 1950 May
Festival, Mrs. Lungerhausen accompanied a School of Music pres-
entation of Haydn's "Creation."
Bhave's movement received in-
ternational attention soon after it
began; and he was featured on
the cover of Time in May, 1953.
His idea of how to reform India's
economic plight was getting at-
tention in the world, and getting
results in India.
A devoted follower of Mahatma
Gandhi, Bhave walked, and to
this day walks, from village to
village persuading landowners to
give up their land for distribution
to the landless.
There is enough land to sup-
port all of India," Miss McMahon
believes. But it goes to waste in
the hands of a few. Bhave is dem-
onstrating that there is enough
land to go around.
