Tennis Skill
Improved by
Special Class
Slam, Lob, Drop Shot
Are Code Expressions
For Strokes Learned
By PAT NORTON
Among the many students play-
ing tennis these warm afternoons
are the coeds who are taking ad-
vanced tennis.
This class is comparable to the
advanced golf class in that its aim
is to smooth out the many imper-
fections which coeds might have.
Women in this class are highly
skilled in the game, many of them
having played in various tennis
tournaments. This program gives
students a chance to play against
others who are as equally skilled.
Knowledge of forehand, back-
hand and volley are the qualifi-
cations for admission in addition
to speed and good form.
Students are learning the smash,
lob, and the drop shots. They are
also working on the tactics which
are behind a game of singles or
doubles.
A tournament is planned among
the coeds in this class. Many of
the women are also taking part in
the regular tennis tournament on
the women's tennis courts.
Important. to the game of ten-
nis is the care which the player
gives to her racket.
Tennis rackets should be kept
in a cover and press when not in
use. Balls should be new, for old
balls have a different spin and
bounce to them.
Students should never play on
wet courts, or let the strings of
their racket become wet.
Proper attire for women when
playing tennis is all white, so that
players will not be distracted by
color.
"Tennis shoes are the only type
of shoes which are to be worn on
the courts," said Joan Farrel,
women's physical education in-
structor.

RISE

Singer Discovered in N.Y. Show

. .

By JAN JAGUSCH
Wide acclaim and unusual
achievements herald the appear-
ance of Rise Stevens, mezzo-so-
prano star of the Metropolitan
Opera, in the University's May
Festival.
Unlikesmany of the world's
great artists, neither Miss Stevens
nor her parents hadrany childhood
aspirations for her musical career.
Instead of concentrated musical
study she attended public school
where her fine voice was discov-
ered by the school's superintend-
ent.
Her next step in her career came
when she began to sing at wed-
dings, funerals, parties and in
clubs soon after her "discovery."
Child Prima Donna
The scene of her professional
debut as a child prima donna oc-
curred on a local radio station.
Miss Steven's next milestone was
passed in storybook fashion when
a vocal teacher at Julliard Schiol
of Music heard her singing the
lead in "The Chocolate Soldier" at
the Heckscher Theatre in Brook-
lyn.
The teacher was so impressed by
Miss Stevens' possibilities that she
procurred a scholarship for her at
Julliard.
Strangely enough her first con-
tact with the Metropolitan Opera
proved to be a losing one as mezzo
Anna Kaskas bested her in the
Metropolitan Auditions of the Air.
A year later another audition net-
ted her a small contract, which she

refused in order to go to Europe
for further operatic training.
Landed Leading Roles
When she arrived in Europe, she
found all contracts already signed.
She then gambled and used the
money for her passage home, to
go to Prague, Czechoslovakia
where here luck changed and she
landed leading roles.
It was at the Prague Opera that
Edward Johnston, the Met's gen-
eral manager, heard her and of-
fered a contract which she ac-
cepted.
Her Metropolitan debut in
"Mignon" in 1938 met with wide
acclaim. Records now show a last-
ing popularity which ranks her as
the biggest operatic attraction
both in New York and on the an-
nual spring tour.
Beside the praise she has re-
ceived on this side of the Atlantic,
Miss Stevens hasagained the title
of "the perfect actress with the

brilliant voice" h'om the Italian
public and press.
Leads Record Sales
Miss Stevens also stands as one
of the all-time leaders in record
sales in the classical field.
She is probably best loved by
critics and audieices for her out-
standing portrayal of "Carmen."
Her "Carmen" also made history
when it became the first opera ever
to be televised.
Visitors to the May Festival will
have the opportunity to hear her
interpretation of "Habanera" and
"Sequidilla" from Bizet's great op-
era.
Bluck's "Gods of Eternal Night"
from "Alceste," Tschaikowsky's
"Adieu," forets from "Jeanne d'
Arc" and Saint-Saens' "Mon
Coeur" from "Samson et Delila"
will also be included in Miss Ste-
vens' repertoire at her 8:30 p.m.,
Sunday, May 8 concert.

STEVENS-'A

REAL FIND':

Law School classes where he will give notice to students that they

Union.

Mothers are causing the big rush
this weekend along with the an-
nual spring formals, record dances,
and picnics.
Beware all Tau Kappa Epsilon
sweethearts! The fraternity is ini-
tiating its first annual "Tiger
Hunt" tomorrow night. One broth-
er will be masquerading in an au-
thentic tiger suit while his black-
faced pledge brothers will "beat
out the bushes" hunting for him.
They will be armed with realis-
tic, terrifying squirt guns. Who-
ever gets hit is automatically
dead, and there's no cheating per-
mitted!
When one survivor is left after
this gruelling duel, the guests,
including members of visiting
chapters, will go on a safari and
camp at the "Island."
Haven For Renegades
The Phi Kappa Tau house will
turn into a haven for renegades
at their Apache party tonight. To-
morrow afternoon the fraternity
will play host to Alpha Chi Ome-
ga's at an exchange picnic.
Spring formals will also be an
important part of this weekend.
Black and White Ball is being

planned by the Sigma Alpha Ep-
silon's for tomorrow night.
Starting out with dinner at the
Union, an eight-piece band and
singer will take over and perform
amidst the black and white dec-
orations and dress.
A full weekend is being planned
by the Sigma Alpha Mu's. Tonight
a party is being given by the sen-
iors for the pledges with original
skits being, presented.
Holds Pledge Formal
Tomorrow night, the Sammy's
are holding their semi-annual
pledge formal at the Washtenaw
Country Club. Sunday will be the
traditional "Parent's Day" with a
.special program planned to enter-
tain the visiting mothers and fa-
thers.

It's also spring formal time at
the Phi Alpha Kappa house to-
morrow night.
Acacia follows suit with their
pledge formal tomorrow, which
will feature a dinner and dance
at the house.
The last of the grad mixers will
be held from 9 p.m. to midnight
tomorrow, in the third-floor ball-
room of the Rackham Building.
The mixer will feature Paul Mc-
Donough and his five-piece orches-
tra. This will be McDonough's last
appearance on campus.
