Yae Linguist
Urges Early.
"F o r e i g n language teaching
should begin in kindergarten,"
Prof. Theodore Andersson of Yale
University said yesterday, outlin-
ing a future program of modern
language teaching.
a Speaking at a Modern Language
Conference of thIie Michigan
Schoolmasters Club, Prof. Anders-
son proposed acclimating the ear
of primary grade children to a
foreign language through speak-
ing and listening.
Teach Language in Grades
He suggested teaching reading
and writing to grades four through
six, adding "descriptive" grammar
to grades seven through 10, and
giving literary and cultural study
to grades 10 through 12.
This program, the Yale profes-
sor continued, would permit col-
lege instruction in the second lan-
guage to proceed at the same level
as English.
Prof. Andersson pointed out that
inasmuch as there is no correla-
tion between language aptitude
and IQ, the second language, in
elementary school, uplifts the
"slow learner with confidence and
increases his interest in learning."
'Pioneers' Face Obstacles
Since the continual progressive
language program is, for the most
part in an embryonic stage, Prof.
Andersson pointed out obstacles
"pioneers" of the idea are facing.
"It is first necessary," the Yale
professor added, "for communities
to support such a program before
rushing into it."
"Second," he continued, "it is
necessary to obtain and prepare
competent teachers for elementary
school level instruction."
Develop Language Skill
According to Prof. Andersson,
educators have sorely ignored the
fact that more than 20 million
Americans are exposed to a second
language in the home.
"This resource can definitely be
used to advantage," the Yale pro-
fessor continued, "by the coopr-
ation of social workers, cultural
anthropologists, and psychologists
with language teachers to help
more Americans point with pride,
rather than fear to their second
language skill."
Student Receives
Honor for Opera
Roland Trogan, Grad., has re-
ceived a $1,500 award for his
comic opera, "The Hat Man."
Trogan, a music composition
student, received the amount as
second prize in the National Stu-
dent Composers' Radio Awards.
The work, which Trogan wrote
in his junior year is a comic opera
dealing with the fortunes of a hat

Fennelly Says TV Wiping Out Radio


"It's the easiest money for the
least work" is the way Parker Fen-j
nelly feels about radio.
Fennelly, who is now appearing
in "The Southwest Corner" at Ly-
dia Mendelssohn Theatre, is prob-
ably best known for his portrayal
of Titus Moody on Fred Allen's
radio program, "Allen's Alley."
"TV is wiping out radio," Fen-
nelly said. "In fact, all that's left
are disk jockeys in the afternoon:
and quiz shows in the evening. But
I guess newscasts will last for a
long while."
Shakespearean Work
A quiet and unassuming man
who wears his long, grey hair
combed away from his forehead,
Fennelly has switched from radio!
to TV and the stage within the
past few years. Of course, he has
done considerable stage work be-
fore, Shakespearean repertory and
many summers of stock work.
Most of Fennelly's work has<
been in portraying New England4
character roles. Last fall, director
Alfred Hitchcock asked him to ap-
pear in the upcoming mystery-t
comedy film, "The Trouble withr
"After playing strictly rural5
parts," Fennelly said, "I was sur-
prised to discover that I was toe
play a millionaire, but a self-madev
Character Roles
Fennelly.does not resent playingr
character roles. "So many other
people can do the other things
much better," he said.
Of his part as Orville Green-
stead, the slow-moving, slow-talk-
About 400 students from 19 Mi-
chigan high schools will gather
for the Michigan School Vocal As-
sociation class B festival chorus
at 3 p.m. today in Hill Auditorium.
Prof. Maynard Klein, director of
the University Choirs will conduct
the chorus in selections by Bach,
De Lassus and Brahms. He will
also conduct the Michigan Singers
in selections by Vittoria, Schu-
bert and Brahms.
Co-chairmen for the event are
Prof. Geneva C. Nelson, and Don-
ald C. Robinson, both of the mu-
sic school. The program is open
to the public free of charge.

The 25th Alumni Conference
sponsored by the School of Busi-
ness Administration will be held
today in the business administra-
tion building.
George W. Romney, president of
the American Motors Corporation,
will talk on "The American Motors
Merger" at 10 a.m. in Auditorium
A, Angell Hall. A. D. H. Kaplan
of the Brookings Institution will
speak on "Economic and Social As-
pects of the Merger Movement."

who used to pay $1.50 to sit in the
balcony are staying home now,"
he said,
Fennelly, who thinks a show
should establish. a reputation at
reduced rates, believes that the-
ater prices are much too high.
"You have to get people into
the theater," he explained. "They
won't pay the same amount of
money for a play with seven peo-
ple when they can see 50 dancing
girls for the same price."
Fennelly explained his choice of
careers with the simple statement,
"I was always stage struck." He
attended Leyland Howard School
in Boston where he received dra-
matic training. '
Afterwards, he did Shakespeare
and some summer stock. A friend
told him about a rural part in a
radio show. Fennelly auditioned
for the part and from then on be,-
gan a steady climb to prominence
in the radio field.
Commenting on Ann Arbor au-
diences, Fennelly said they were
"very responsive." He was much
impressed with the reception ac-
corded the show during'the Dra-
ma Season run.
Future plans include a summer
television series which will be
filmed. A top TV comic is beir
considered for the leading role,
but Fennelly hesitated to make any
statement until the series is defin-
itely set.

ing farmer in "The Southwest
Corner,' Fennelly said, "If I had
written the play myself, I would-
n't have changed a thing."
Fennelly said the reason he
thinks the show had such a short
run was that the prices were too
high. "Three out of seven New
York critics liked the show," he
explained. "But we had lost mon-
ey in the Philadelphia, pre-Broad-
