Forty-seven happy but tired
fifth and sixth graders from the
University Elementary School re-
turned recently from a week at
Clear Lake Camp near Dowling,
Health had been the topic in
the classroom before the trip and
this topic was carried over to the
pupils' stay at camp.
The students learned in class
about the need for fresh air and
proper foods and then put what
they had learned into practice
while at camp.
Campers' Activities
Hikes, cook-outs, and story tell-
ing around a log fire were some of
the things which the campers did.
"Opportunities for inter-action
among students are the most im-
portant things about the trips,"
Daniel Moore, sixth grade elemen-
tary teacher, said.
The W. K. Kellogg Foundation
has purchased land, erected build-
ings and developed the sites of
several camps in southern Michi-
gan. These camps were built pri-
marily for underprivileged chil-
dren, but in recent years they have
also been used by other groups.
Clear LaketCampat Dowling
was built by the Foundation and
was one of the first school-camps
in the country.
Social Living Experience
The camping experience helps
children gain experience in so-
cial living. It also trains students
to get along with others in differ-
ent living and working situations.
Science and nature studies are
emphasized at the camp. This ex-
perience helps to satisfy children's

need for adventure and activity
which they are unable to satisfy
in cities.
It is an extension of the class-
room where the skills students
have learned in their class stud-
ies may be put to practical use.
During the summer various
workshops for adult groups and
student teachers are held at the
The director of the camp is Dr.
Donald Randall.
St. Marys Lake Camp near Bat-
tle Creek was also built about the
same time by the Kellogg Founda-
tion. It was sold by the Foundation
to the Michigan Educational Asso-
ciation for $1 with the provision
that it would remain self-support-

Violinist Will Appear
At Festival Concert


"America's first young lady of
the fiddle," is the title that Jeanne
Mitchell, violinist who appears in
this year's May Festival, proudly
Music has appealed to Miss
Mitchell since her early childhood.
She started picking out tunes on
the piano when she was only two.
"It seems as though I was always
taking piano lessons, but begging
to play the violin," she commented.
When Miss Mitchell's family
moved to New York after her
eighth birthday, she began formal
violin study. Her first teacher was
Chester La Follet'e, who has re-
mained her instructor throughout
her career.
Miss Mitchell's New York debut
followed her graduation from Co-
lumbia University's Barnard Col-
lege where she studied under the
Joline music scholarship.
While at Barnard Miss Mitchell
would not allow music to inter-
fere with her education. She feels
that a college education is impor-
tant for the development of per-
sonality which is essential to a
musician's artistry.
Miss Mitchell rounds out her
musical career with a variety of
activities. She appreciates "almost
any play" in the live theatre and
all forms of music. Carving and
modeling are her hobbies, while
square dancing, swimming and
modern dancing give her an op-
portunity for physical recreation.
Success has followed her en-
deavors since she began her pro-
fessional career in 1947 with a
Town Hall debut. At that time
critics predicted a brilliant future
for this young artist.
There seems to be an impor-
tant number in Miss Mitchell's
career. She has appeared three
times with the New York Philhar-
monic-Symphony under the di-
rection of Fritz Reiner, Vladimir
Golschmann and Dimitri Mitro-
poulos with great acclaim and also
has given three successful Carne-
gie Hall recitals.
Since her debut, traveling has
appealed to Miss Mitchell. Tours
throughout the world have high-
lighted her budding career. In ad-
dition to appearances throughout
the United States, she has given
concerts in Latin America and Eu-
However, Miss Mitchell also
maintains a room for practicing,
while living in New York with
her family. She spends her sum-
mers in a renovated barn in the
country. In this atmosphere her
only audience is the cows and two
horses in the pasture surrounding
the building.
Miss Mitchell believes that the
Plaque Dedication
The Women's Athletic Asso-
ciation recently dedicated a
plaque to The Board in Con-
trol of Intercollegiate Athletics
for the Board's part in the
building of the Women's Swim-
ming Pool.
With the consent of the Re-
gents and the pool's architect,
the plaque was placed in the
pool building to show the ap-
preciation of all women stu-
dents for the funds appropriat-
ed by the Board in Control in
order that the pool might be

greatest thrill in her musical ca-
reer was when she played Proko-
ffief's "Second Violin Concerto" in
1950 with the New York Philhar-
One of Miss Mitchell's record-
ings, Schubert's Symphony No. 8
in B minor, and her other selec-
tion, Mozart's Concerto No. 5 in A
major, K. 219, for Violin and Or-
chestra, will be heard at 2:30
p.m., Saturday. At this time Miss
Mitchell will appear with the Phil-
adelphia Orchestra under the ba-
ton of Eugene Ormandy in the
University's May Festival.
