Speaking at a conference on de-

here yesterday, Harvard's Deai
Emeritus Joseph Hudnut, of. the
graduate School of Design, ex-
plained his position,
"The aesthetic standards of the
American people are dismally low,"
he continued, and something
should be done about it.
Three Futile Theories
Dean Hudnut gave three the-
ories that have been advanced to
such improvement, noting in each
case the shortcomings.
The first, a faith in imitating,
he called "missionary work" such
as restorations in Williamsburg or'
in museums. He also noted that
"the common man is more influ-
enced in his preference by the
movies where he merely finds his
own preference confirmed."
Dean Hudnut classified exposi-
tion and persuasion as the second
useless theory, for people cannot
be made to accept artistic excel-

PERFORMER GETS READY FOR 'OPERA' ROLE
Union Opera, Hail to Victor'
To Complete Local Run Today
ttaburgh 13, P..
A Union Opera is born of work,
thought, devotion and a generous
dash of tradition.
This year's production, "Hail to
Victor!" is no exception.
From its birth last spring with
the naming of a central commit-
tee, until the opening performance
here Wednesday night, the goal of
both cast and committee members
has been a successful production.
The work of a Union Opera
comes in long hours of practice
of song and dance routines as well
as constant attention to the com-
panion tasks of staging a musical
comedy such as this.
Costumes must be designed and
fitted, publicity planned and exe-
cuted and countless other related
chores performed by a staff of
volunteer, behind-the-scenes work-
"Hail to Victor!", written by
Murry Frymer, '56, was chosen by
a student-faculty selection com-
mittee. The story, set in Ann Arbor
3t the turn of the century, tells
how coeds first came to the Uni-
Hero of the all-male production
is Victor Valient, played by Gor-
don Epding, '55. Women win an
agreement from President Harlan
Diagonal that if they can change
Victor's shy, retiring personality
by J-Hop time, they'll be allowed
to attend classes here at the Uni-
First Opera Called "Michigenda"
It was only shortly after the
turn of the century that the first
Opera was produced. Titled "Mi-
chigenda," it was put on by stu-
dents both for enjoyment and to
raise funds for the nascent Michi-
Since that first performance in
1908, 35 Operas have been staged
by University men. The all-male
tradition has been maintained
since then, with the exception of
the World War I period, when a
dearth of male talent forced the
drafting of women into the show.
Tonight's performance will end
the Ann Arbor run for "Hail to
Victor!" A Lansing performance
tomorrow in Sexton High School
is planned, along with a five-stop
Christmas roadshow tour.
An appraisal of labor-manage-
ment arbitration will be the key-
note address today at the opening
session of a two-day conference
on arbitration for lawyers.
Sponsored by the Law School,
the meeting will continue with an
address by Ralph T. Seward of
Washington, D.C. He is an arbi-
tration umpire for a large steel
company and its union.
About 30 lawyers and manage-
ment and union representatives
are expected to attend the con-
ference, which will be held in

W. D. Garland, E.E. '52, Univ. of
California, is working for the Pacific
Telephone Company. We thought
you'd be interested in what Don
told us about his first assignment.
'(Reading time: 45 seconds)
Maybe once in a car-buying lifetime, you
come across something that breaks all the
old patterns and establishes new ones. This
is that kind of car. This is the true story of
how Chevrolet and General Motors shaped
a new idea in steel.
Like most good ideas, this one is pretty simple. Chevrolet and
General Motors'set out to build the first low-priced car that
" bring you the very freshest and finest styling to be had.,
" bring you the most advanced engine design and engineering features:
" bring you the kind of performance and the kind of ride that have
never been available before in a low-priced car:
" bring you the highest quality of manufacture and materials;:
All this in Chevrolet's price field? That did take some doing!
And isn't it logical that only Chevrolet and General Motors
have the people, skills, resources and facilities, to carry out this
Power Beyond Compare!

And it's more fun traveling by

swell dining car meals en route.
Save 25% or More
And this Is gravy l Travel home
and back with two or more friends

trips of 100 miles or more, you
each save 25% of usual round-trip

more to travel long-distance to-

exciting new idea? Here is how
this new Chevrolet changes all
your ideas about cars!
You also feel the new idea'
quickly. ::; quick power like
a panther's paw with the new
"Turbo-Fire V8" (162 h.p.)
and two new"Blue-Flame" 6's. -

ance is a 12-volt electrical
system giving you better igni-
tion, faster starting, greater electrical reserve for any of the
power assists you might desire. You have a, transmission

Even Air Conditioning!
And if you desire the convenience of power assists (optional
at extra cost) :: ; you'll find new power-steering and improved
power brakes on all models. Power-controlled windows and
powershift seat are available on the Bel Air and "Two-Ten"
models, while air conditioning may be added on V8 models:
Won't You Try It?
Here, we can only tell you how successfully the Motoramic Chevrolet
expresses the new idea behind it. But the car itself can quickly show you.
Come in for a demonstration drive, won't you, first chance you get.
MORE THAN A 'NEW CAR,
A NEW CONCEPT OF LOW-COST MOTORING
Everything's new in the
Real Show-Car Styling!
Your eye tells you the Motoramic
Chevrolet is no styling "patch-up"
~ job. A rakish, low profile : soft
swiftness from its sleek rear fenders
to its wide-eyed Sweep-Sight windshield.: : a new outlook for motoring.
And that outlook doesn't change when you slip inside exciting fabrics
and trim are harmonized with the whole car.
Here Don Garland makes noise distribution measurentents
with a Level Distribution Recorder
A Sensational Ride!
My job is to help solve problems,
of noise and other interference on tele-
phone lines due to power interference.
Inductive co-ordination is the technical
term for the work.
"First thing the Chief Engineer ex-
plained to me was that 'all the answers
aren't in the book.' He was right. Most
of the problems have required a com-
bination of electrical engineering, a
"In addition to this on-the-job ex-
perience, I have attended several spe-
cial training courses conducted by the
company. Now I'm breaking in a new
man, just like when I started."
Don Garland's work is typical of many
engineering assignments in the Bell
Telephone Companies. There are simi-
lar opportunities for college graduates
You live the new idea instantly
: :: you glide::; actually glide
because spherical joints "roll with
--=-- - =- - the punch" of the road in Chev-
rolet's new Glide-Ride front sus-
pension. And outrigger rear springs mean new balance in
turns. .:turns made so effortless by new ball-race steering.
And when you stop suddenly, new Anti-Dive braking control
checks that nosing down in front; :; you get "heads up" stop-
ping. Tubeless tires mean much greater protection against
blowouts. And with new high-level ventilation there's fresher air.
