In the middle of the rehearsal,
the script was changed calling for
a chorus of deckhands to join in
singing an old lake song. Looking
around, the directors found their
unwitting victims and drafted
"deckhands" Bald, Walton and
Wyllie commented that he's not
considering a career in singing,
but added "I'm beginning to think
they have some ulterior motive in
calling me up here." The last time.

Taped and Broadcast
"Soo Adventure" is a series of
13 quarter-hour radio programs
designed for use in the Universi-
ty's "Radio Classroom," which is
taped and broadcast over several
stations in Michigan specifically
for use in schools.
Narrated by Captain M. Z.Toby,
skipper of the "Vencedora," (Mil-
ton Zarkoff, Grad.), the programs
recreate historic incidents in the
development of lake commerce. A
large number of the programs fea-
ture on the spot visits to the locks

Who is Fredrico?
"That's a long , story," said
Clarence Stephenson, dramatic
director of the Gilbert and Sulli-
van Society.
It all started when Robert Q.
Lewis was a student at the Uni-
versity. Lewis was in a group
called the Children's Theater
which presented plays to school
Consult Fredrico
Whenever Robert Q. forgot a
line, he would state emphatically
to his grubby-faced audience, "Ex-
cuse me, I've got to consult Fred-
rico." With that, he would stride
off the stage and ask the prompt-
ers what his next lines were.
Stephenson, a grade school stu-
dent, who also worked with the
group, explained, "I picked up the
phrase and said I'd use it some-
day if the need arose" The oppor-
tunity presented itself-in Detroit
at the Rackham building when the
Society presented the Mikado, in
Pause in 'Mikado'
As the performers were progres-
sing through a dialogue in the
second act, Yum Yum suddenly
stopped talking in the middle of a
sentence and Stephenson glanced
at her to see what the trouble was.
"She just looked at me expect-
antly as if it was my next line. I
looked for help at Ko-Ko standing
on my other side, but there was
no inspiration there."
Ko-Ko was staring out at the
audience with his finger in his
mouthnwhile silence reigned. No
one knew what the next line was.
"Just a minute, I have to consult
Fredirico," uttered Stephenson
desperately as he strode deter-
-minedly off stage. Meanwhile Ko-
Ko asked, "Who's Fredrico?"
Fins Solution
Approaching the promptress,
Stephenson asked where they were
Walton H. Hamilton, Washing-
ton, D.C., attorney, will give the
fifth and final lecture in the Wil-
liam W. Cook series at 4 p.m. to-
day in Rm. 100, Hutchins Hall.
Hamilton, '13Grad., has been the
speaker in this eighth series qf
Cook lectures, dealing with "The
Politics of Industry."
Today's topic will be "Salute
to the Emerging Economy." The
lecture is open to the public.

Tuberculosis hospitalization con-
trol and rehabilitation of tubercu-
losis patients will be discussed to-
morrow morning, and chronic ill-

in the play. Stephenson walked
back on stage with a fixed smile
on his face. He suddenly remem-
bered the title of the next song,
"Here's a Howdy-do." "With a
look of intensity, not unmixed
with desperation, I looked at the
musical director who had been
sitting in the pit placidly watch-
ing all our discomfortune on
stage, and said, 'Here's a Howdy-
do.' "1
A moment of agonized suspense
followed as the conductor leaped
off his stool and madly began
beating time, as the orchestra
came in by twos and threes.
Thus, the operetta choppily pro-
gressed. Fredrico had saved the
"Of course, we would just as
soon keep Fredrico out of the ac-
tual performance," Stephenson
continued. "But with a new show
every semester, anything is likely
to happen-and usually does."
Navy Students
Given Awards
Two Naval ROTC students re-
ceived special honors i$ ceremo-
nies held at North Hall this week.
Kent Lee Pickard, '55, was
awarded the Chicago Tribune gold
award during Tuesday's drill. A
medal accompanied by a citation
complimenting Pickard for his
"military achievement, scholastic
attainment and character" was
presented by Capt. Charles A.
Bond, commanding officer of the
University detachment.
The Tribune's silver award was
presented yesterday to Gilbert
Ridgeway Hitchcock, '56, Capt.
Bond decorated Hitchcock while
Bob Dombrowski, '55, read a cita-
tion honoring the third year
NROTC student.
DAC To Present
Panel Discussion
A panel discussion of the Dra-
matic Arts Center double play-
bill, "A Phoenix Too Frequent" by
Christopher Fry, and "The Boor"
by Anton Chekov, will take place
today after the 8:15 p.m. presen-
Prof. Herbert Barrows of the
English department, Prof. Andrei
Lobanov-Rostovsky of the history
department and Prof Hoover Jor-
dan of the Michigan State Normal
College, English department will
join Joseph Gistirak, DAC direc-
tor, in the discussion.

Furnaces, pieces of molded metal,
blackboards, chairs and various
pieces of machinery will confuse
the novice entering the Engineer-
ing foundry for the first time.
He will learn here that our mo-
dern civilization is built upon
metal. The place of the metallur-
gical engineer in industry is there-
fore of utmost importance. He
finds his major fields of work in
mining, processing metals and al-
loys, and determining uses of
metals and alloys in industry.
Duties of Metallurgist
Developing new metals and al-
loys to replace those that are be-
coming scarce is but one respon-
sibility of the metallurgical engi-
neer. By developing methods of
using low grade mineral deposits,
by inventing new mechanical and
heat treatments to produce better
properties in known metals and by
educating the user to the proper
selection of metallic material that
is economically suitable to his
needs, the engineer helps society
in valuable ways. /
Foundry operations carried on
in the East Engineering Bldg. train
the potential engineer in these
fields of metallurgy. The funda-
mentals of the field are taught
here: working with ferrous and
non-ferrous metals, molding sands
and studying the properties of
various materials are only a few
of the operations.
Study Machine Design
Students also study the design
of the machines with which they
are working. This enables them to

put the knowledge into use when
they leave the University in de-
signing machinery for industry.
Molding processes of different
types are explained in the foundry
and the students get a chance to
see how the operations work. With
the facilities offered by the foun-
dry, the classes carry out these
processes and can observe the me-
thods and end results.
Besides actual instruction, the
foundry is also available for re-
search. Both beginning and ad-
vanced courses are offered. The
casting, heat treating, and welding
of metals and instruction for their
machining to final size are all a
part of foundry procedures to
prepare the engineer for his fu-
ture needs.
Watching the various activities
carried on in the busy foundry
room amplifies the importance of
this knowledge to the engineering
