The courage to triumph over ad-
versity is the keynote of the early
musical career of Lois Marshall,
soloist in this year's May Festi-
The Canadian soprano fought a

she entertained herself by playing

At the age of 12, she enrolled at
the Toronto Conservatory. There
she became the pupil of Weldon

Serious Manner
Miss Marshall's early years of
study were marked by a grimly
serious manner which led Kilborn
to believe that she could never win
an audience.
With her first recital at 15, her
grim manner disappeared, and she
captured the hearts of her listen-
Miss Marshall won Canada's
highest musical prize, the Eaton
Award, and was named the out-

standing graduate of Toronto's
Royal Conservatory. She was giv-
en the Singing Stars of Tomorrow
Award which enabled her to sing
with the Toronto Symphony.

In 1952 Miss Marshall had an
opportunity to present her talent

Since her arrival on the Ameri-

ilcn'44 Catnpu


Many of our friends will soon be graduating. What kind of
gifts should we give them?
Here is no simple question. It is never simple to find gifts for
people who have everything, and college students, as everyone
knows, are the most richly endowed of mortals. They've got
beauty and truth. They've got rhythm. They've got stout hearts,
willing hands, and a clear vision that dispels the miasmas of the
future as the morning sun sears away the last wisps of a cool,
night's fog. They've got heaps and heaps of money, as who would
not who has been receiving such a huge allowance over four
years of schooling?
What can we give them that they don't already have?
One infallible gift for the person who has everything is, of
course, a stethoscope. New models, featuring sequined earpieces
and power steering, are now on display at your local surgical
supply house. Accompanying each stethoscope is a gift card with
this lovely poem:
When you hear your heart beat,
When you hear it pound,
Remember me, your buddy,
William Henry Round.
If,, by some odd chance, your name does not happen to be
William Henry Round (you're laughing, but it's possible), here
is another dandy suggestion for the person who has everything
- a gift certificate from the American Bar Association.
These certificates, good at your local lawyer'. come in three
convenient sizes: small, medium, and large. The small certifieate
covers title searches and writs of estoppel. The medium size
covers torts, claim jumping, and violations of the Smoot-Hawley
Act. The large one covers kidnapping, murder, and barratry.
If, by some odd chance, you don't know what barratry is
(you're laughing, but it's possible), it is arson at sea. This inter-
esting crime is called after Cosmo "Bubbles" Barrat, a captain
in the British navy during the last century, who was addicted to
burning his ships. One man o' war after another fell victim to
his incendiary bent. The Admiralty kept getting crosser and
crosser, but every time they called in Captain Barrat for a
scolding, he would roll his big blue eyes and tug his forelock and
promise faithfully never to do it again. Oh, butter wouldn't
melt in his mouth, that one !
So they would give him another ship, and he would soon reduce
it to a scattering of charred spars. He burned more than 120,000
ships before he was finally discharged as "doubtful officer
After his separation from the navy, he moved to Vienna where
he changed his name to Freud and invented Scrabble.
But I digress. I was listing gifts for the person who has every-
thing, and here is, another one. This gift, in fact, is not only for
persons who have everything, it is also for persons who have
nothing, for persons who have next to nothing, for persons who
have next to everything, and for persons in between. I refer,
of course, to-Philip Morris cigarettes. Here is the cigarette
for everybody-for everybody, that is, who likes a mild relaxing
smoke of fine vintage tobacco in a handsome brown package
that snaps open with the greatest of ease. For those, if such
there be, who like dull, nondescript tobacco in a package that
requires a burglar's kit to open, Philip Morris is definitely the
wrong gift.
Among the newer gifts that warrant your attention is a revolu-
tionary development in the enjoyment of recorded music. This

"It's a lot of fun and certainly
a new experience," Miss Page One
of Detroit's Newspaper Guild de-
clared, speaking of the numerous
activities her new title entails.
Nancy Kovack, a 19-year-old
University senior who hails from
Flint was chosen to reign over the
Page One Ball from a state-wide
list of applicants.
Describing the Ball as the
Guild's annual publicity stunt,
Miss Kovack laughed as she re-
called her early part in the con-
test. "I didn't even know I was
entered," she exclaimed."My aunt
sent in my picture and I first
heard about it when she -called
to tell me I was one of 20 chosen
to appear before the judges!"
TV and Mgdeling Career
The tall, vivacious coed who
plans a career in television and
modeling, explained that all Mich-
igan women between the ages of
18 and 24 who had never been
married were eligible candidates.
"We modeled bathing suits, then
formals before four judges from
the Free Press and Times, mem-
bers of the Guild, who represent-
ed fields of reporting, advertising
and photography," Miss Kovak
continued. "After the group had
been narrowed to 10, we modeled
The new Queen's duties include
appearances on television shows,
something at which she is far
from a novice.
Speech Major
A speech major, Miss Kovak
takes part in a program over
WPAG-TV, Monday, Wednesday
and Friday evenings in connec-
tion with her courses atstheUni-
versity. "I do mainly Master of
Ceremonies work and interview
community people," she said.
News reports, children's narra-
tions and directing are also on the
agenda of this versatile coed.
Miss Kovack had her own disc
jockey show on radio at one time,
but she prefers the television med-
Waltz With the Governor
Her big assignment as Miss Page
One is to reign over the Ball,
which will be held Saturday at
Detroit's Statler Hotel. There se
will be officially crowned by Mayor
Albert E. Cobo.
"Gov. Williams will be a guest,"
the speech major commented,
"and he and I will open the dance
with a waltz."
Miss Kovack remarked that the
formal affair is open to the pub-
lic, and tickets may be purchased
at the door.
Luncheon Queen
The tall shapely model who

lives at Martha Cook, reigned over
the Page One Ball Award Lunch-
eon yesterday in connection with
the Guild's publicity campaign.
She was also interviewed on the
Mary Morgan Television show last
week and modeled an oriental cos-
tume advertising a coming movie.
More television appearances are
in store for the Queen before she
winds up her royal career at the

it," Miss Kovack declared, "is that
