Phychiatrist's Child Makes Good

Janet 'Winn Malcolm '55 doesn't
like pizza.
She is not planning to enter
law school in the fall regardless
of the draft defernnt.
. Mrs. Malcolm does not bother
with "copies" when collecting art.
Several originals hang in her
apartment including one drawn
on her kitchen wall by Stu Ross
'55. She is prepared to preserve
the wall should posterity place
its aesthetic O.K. on Ross.
Mrs. Malcolm draws too. "Once
In my youth," she recalls, "I drew
part of a children's book. I had
to stop though, because all I can
draw is people with violins. Even
the animals played violins."
During the past year she has
been the editor of Gargoyle. Her
keen sense of parody has caught
the attention of the campus. Many
people consider the Gargoyle "New
Yorker" parody the finest issue of
a college humor magazine ever
Mrs. Malcolm has also reviewed
movies for The Daily under the
name J. W. Malcolm, and has
achieved some fame as a contrib-
utor to the letter's column.
Confusion between the identities
of J. W. Malcolm and Don Mal-
colm was cleared up by Jan's let-
ter in reference to her husband's
rather controversial review of
"Carmen Jones."
Speaking up for Bizet, she said
"The review of that movie, how-
ever, written as ,it were by my'
roommate Donald Malcolm, struck
me as not only uncharitable, but
in surprisingly, poor for him,;
taste." Signed J. W. Malcolm,,
Born some twenty years ago in,
Prague, Czechoslovakia, she came
to this country when she was five
years old. "One of my biggest
thrills," she remembers, "was get-
ting my handwriting in Life."
"It happened," she explained,{
"when the Life cameraman came
to photograph the Czech school I,
attended in New York. I had just'
finished writing something on the
board-'The cat of my aunt is hav-
ing kittens.' as I remember. The
discriminating photographer used'
my handwriting for his magazine,
but not me," she said. He used my

Urges Meat
Gamma radiation, it was sug-
gested yesterday by University
professor Lloyd E. Brownell, could
be of aid in the packaging of fresh
Prof. Brownell, supervisor of the
University's Fission Products Lab-
oratory, presented the idea to the
1955 conference on nuclear engi-
neering held at the University of
California as part of his new plan
for the wholesaling of fresh meat.
Prepare Cuts Early
This proposed new method con-
sists of preparing standard cuts
of meat at the packing house
rather than at the retail meat
market, Prof. Brownell explained.
The packaged meat would then
be pasteurized at the packing
house by means of a relatively
small dose of gamma radiation
prior to shipping to the retailer, he
The radiation chamber would
be designed to irradiate packaged
meat in cartons on mass scale.
The new plan was designed in
answer to consumer preference for
purchasing weighed and pre-
packaged cuts of meat. Now one
disadvantage of pre-
packaging fresh meat, according to
Prof. Brownell, is the need for
prompt sale of the cut-up meat to
prevent loss by spoilage. The pro-
posed plan would eliminate this
Consumers' Advantages
Advantages to the consumer in
the plan include the fact that pas-
teurized meat has a longer refrig-
erator shelf-life than untreated'
fresh meat, Prof. Brownell said.
This would save the housewife
much shopping time.
Also, pasteurization of pork
would eliminate any danger of
Before the suggested plan can be
put into effect, however, the
wholesomeness of irradiated food
must be established. Sources of
radiation must be made available,
Animal - feeding experiments
conducted here for the past two
years have given Prof. Brownell no
reason to think irradiated foods
are not wholesome.
Besides being the motor capital*
of the world, Detroit is also the
salt center of the United States.
Located in the city .as well, are
some of the country's largest drug
and rubber manufacturing plants.

Aspen Music Festival
Offers Study,_Vacation

-Daily-Fred Day
Sunbathing Flourishes
As Temperature Soars

Why go all the way to Europe
when you can attend one of the
most unique music festivals here
in the United States?
The annual Music Festival in
Aspen, Colo. is the answer. You
can attend school for nine weeks,
get college credit for your work,
and have a vacation at the same
Located at an altitude of 7,900
feet in the middle of the Rocky
Mountains, Aspen has more than
scenery and climate to offer to
the student.
Study Under Notables
Young music hopefuls get a
chance to study under the guid-
ance of some of the greatest names
in the music field such as Tipton,
Primrose, Kell and Harrell.
Besides study, students have
such recreational activities as pic-
nics, horse-back riding, swimming,
fishing, hiking and mountain-
Ability, Experience Needed
Entrance requirements for As-
pen's curriculum are based on
proven ability and previous train-
ing. Tuition for the course, in-
cluding private tuition, all gen-
eral classes, concerts, lectures and
full room and aboard is $500.
This summer, Aspen is introduc-
ing for the first time a music
workshop for those who want to
perform for pleasure, rather than
for profit. There is, also a new
course for teachers 'offering new
methods and uses of materials and

repertories in piano, voice and the
string fields.

Music Festival may contact Ras-

Cats and Czechs
Gargoyle Art Editor Laurence
Scott '55 comments "Mrs. Mal-
colm is Czech and therefore very
dear to me." Stroking her Siamese
cats Clovis and Schroeder, she
curtly replied "Mr. Scott is not
at all Czech."
On the culinary side she also
has a favorite: Brains and scramb-
led eggs, with coffee ice cream for
dessert. Her father isa psychia-
trist. His pen name is Alcantara
y cajal.
Musically, she likes the Baroque
composers and Dvorak. "He's a
Czech," she explains. "Eddie Fish-
er sends me," she adds.
English Dishonors
Mrs. Malcolm describes herself
as an "English dishonors major."
Her professors disagree. Austin
Warren of the English department
commented "Mrs. Malcolm has
made of Gargoyle a witty and bril-
liant magazine, not the old fash-
ioned college comic, which match-
ed the old fashioned college lit-
erary magazine, but something-
so far as I know-unique."
He adds that "Both as a writer
and as an editor, Mrs. Malcolm
has a clear, firm hard tone; she
is a true harpsichordist."
Her literary taste is varied.
However, she declined to name

"my favorite author." She does
think though, that Louisa May Al-
cott is "underrated," Franz Kafka
over." James Joyce is another fav-
orite because "Finnegan's Wake"
in the Czech translation is "Fin-
negan's Budik" which means
"Finnegan's Alarm Clock." Mrs.
Malcolm thinks that this is "in-
teresting if not telling."
Great Czech Novel
She remembers that when she
was a child she wanted to be some-
thing mundane like the President
of the United States or a witch-
"just like other little girls. Now
all I want to do is write the great
Czech novel."
After graduation the Malcolms
plan to go to New York where she
hopes to write for Wierd Terror
Comics. She plans to attend cock-
tail parties wearing a shroud. Mal-
colm will wear tweeds. If some-
body should churlishly ask why,
they will explain that Janet works
on horror stories and Don writes
for Classic Comics.
Editress, savant and wit, Mrs.
Malcolm summed up the Univer-
sity. "Czech, but not very," she

Real springtime in Ann Arbor
puts the fashion trends a jump
ahead of the year-long Bermuda
short controversy.

point where knee-length legwear
is comfortable, coeds turn to bath-
ing suits and pursuit of the peren-
nially favored spring afternoon ac-
Their female yanity hurt by the
bronzed skins of coeds who've been

here have adopted the sport with

Tired of Being Pale
'Tm tired of being white and
sickly-looking," was the complaint
of Mary Sue Curry, '57. "If I'm not
at least partly brown by vacation'
it won't be the fault of my sun-
Miss Curry is one of several
coeds who make sunbathing a rou-
tine post-lunch activity. "Even if
you've got a one o'clock," accord-
ing to Margaret Brandt, '57Ph.,
"you can still get some vitamin D
--and some color."
These two coeds and their sun-
bathing colleagues are adorning

Stockwell Halls to Martha Cook,

Barbour and Helen Newberry are
making full use of sun-porches to
improve their tans while studying.
