'U' Glee Club Prepares for Tour

Groups' Efforts
Result in Journey
To Six Countries
Among the University students
who plan to tour Europe this sum-
mer will be the 40 member Men's
Glee Club.
- A year of sponsorship of campus
events has finally paid off in the
first visit to Europe for the Glee
Club during its 96 year existence.
Included in the group's efforts
to earn their history-making trip
has been the sponsorship of Nor-
man Granz' "Jazz at the Philhar-
monic," Fred Waring's Pennsyl-
vanians, Gulantics and the com-
bined concert with Ohio State.
Alumni Gifts
Welcome gifts from alumni and
friends have supplemented the
fund to enable the Club to make
the trip.
At present obtaining passports,
getting shots at Health Service
and consulting travel literature is
filling any spare minutes the men
may have.
The organization will give a to-
tal of 16 concerts for European
audiences in six countries during
June and July.
Six Countries
Included in the tour will be the
Netherlands, Germany, Austria,
Italy, Switzerland and France.
The Glee Club will finish their
last finals, attempt to condense
their belongings into one small
bag and hurry to Quebec to be
ready to sail on June 6.
Philip A. Duey, director of the
Glee Club plans to present Ameri-
can music to the European audi-
ences. Folk songs, hits f r o m
Broadway shows and college songs
will compose the program.

INOCULATION SHOTS-Now that it is official that the Men's
Glee Club will tour six European countries during June and July,
Glee Club members Tom Schill and Bob Fritts are getting ready
to have Miss Stegeman, clinic nurse, give them shots, one of the
many final preparations before departure.

Joseph Savarino, accompanist
of the Club will also make the trip.
Savarino is a graduate student in
the School of Music.
Rotterdam concert goers will be
the first to hear the group on June
15. This concert will be followed
by others at Leyden, Holland on
June 16, Utrecht June 17 and Am-
sterdam June 18.
The group will then travel to
Germany where they will make
four appearances. Cologne will be
the scene of the first German per-
formance on June 19, followed by

Panhel Appoints Chairman;
Hears Housing Suggestions

New chairman of the Panhellen-
ic American Friend committee, An-
drea Snyder of Kappa Kappa
Gamma, was announced at yes-
terday's Panhel meeting.
Acting in conjunction with the
League on its program, the com-
mittee will also work on World
University Service projects. Trish
Dow of Kappa Alpha Theta and
Lynn Travis of Collegiate Sorosis
will assist Miss Snyder.
In a housing committee report,
Dorothy Clarkson presented a rec-
ommendation which will be sub-
mitted to the Dean's office.
Under the proposed policy,
pledges would have one year, in-
cluding two semesters and one

summer school session, in which
to make their grades to be eligi-
ble for initiation.
Two Housing Lists
It was suggested that pledges
who did not have the required
scholastic average in June be
placed on both the dormitory and
the sorority housing list.
Under this plan, if a coed made
her grades in summer school she
would live in the house. If not she
could live in the dormitory without
being placed at the bottom of its
housing list.
The policy on serenades submit-
ted to the Dean of Women after
last week's meeting has been ap-
New Serenade Policy
According to a new program, the
girl who is being serenaded may
leave the group to go out on the
porch or lawn at that point in the
serenade when she is part of the
ceremony for a reasonable time
of around five minutes.
For no more than five serenades
each semester, sorority sisters liv-
ing in an annex may come to the
house for the duration of the ser-
If the girl being serenaded lives
in non-sorority housing, she, and
only she, may come to the house.
She will then return home by
taxi and may be escorted by the
man to whom she is pinned.
The dates for rushing were es-
tablished as Saturday, Sept. 24 to
Sunday, Oct. 9. Registration will be
before Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Heidelberg on June 20, Rotten-
burg on June 21 and Munich on
June 22.
To Visit Austria
Austria, traditionally the home
of the waltz, will be the next stop.
There the group will present con-
certs in historic Vienna on June
25 and Zell am See on June 26.
The members of the Club are
particularly hoping to be in Vienna
at the time of the proposed Big
Four Conference on the chance
that they may glimpse some of the
dignitaries that will be present.
Trip To Include Sightseeing
During their stay in Europe, the
men in the group intend to do a
little sightseeing. Italy with its
many historic features seems to be
one of the most popular attrac-
The Glee Club will spend from
June 27 to July 9 in Italy and will
present five concerts during that
time. The city of the canals, Ven-
Ice, will be visited first on June
28. Then concerts in Florence on
July 1, Perugia on July 2 and
Rome on July 5 will follow.
The group will close its Italian
visit on July 8 with a concert in
Milan, the home of the La Scala
Swiss Performance
The Glee Club's journey to Lu-
cerne, Switzerland for a perform-
ance on July will be the next stop
on the trip itinerary.
The organization will then go to
Paris where they will close their
concert schedule on July 13. The
prime attraction here seems to be
the Follies Bergiere.
They will then sail from Le
Havre on July 16 and arrive in
New York City on July 25. Home
will be the next stop on the agen-
da for most of the members, where
friends, relatives and parents will
get the "scoop" on the complete
European tour.
Next year's roommates will also
get the full effect of the thrilling
experience of representing the Uni-
versity in some of the foremost
cities of the world.
Interviewing for the Ameri-
can Friends program will be
held from 3 to 5 p.m. today
and tomorrow in the League
Undergraduate Office.

Junior physical education ma-
jors will be hosts to the graduating
seniors at a breakfast at 9 a.m. to-
morrow in the Women's Athletic
To whet the appetites of the sen-
iors, a competitive track meet will
be held prior to the breakfast. Fifty
girls are expected to participate in
the meet.
Juniors and seniors will take
charge of the meet in which all
four classes will compete against
each other.
Track Events
Included in the forty minute
event will be hurdles, high jump,
broad jump, javelin, discus, base-
ball throw and relay races.
Following the track meet, the
women will meet in the WAB
kitchen where the juniors will pre-
pare and serve breakfast. During
breakfast, the juniors will pre-

of the senior class.

first place titles.

ter," Mrs. Hoxie also teaches ten-
nis to elementary school students.
"Quite A Sight"
"When all those little tots start
hitting tennis balls against a back-
board," Judy Roxey, a student at
the University and friend of Mrs.
Hoxie, remarked, "it's really quite
a sight."
Coaching abroad every year has
been a future ambition come true
for Mrs. Hoxie. She has coached
tennis enthusiasts in Africa, Spain
and several other European coun-
tries, even advising royalty about
their tennis strokes.
Miss Farrell, advisor of the ten-
nis club which is sponsoring the
event, mentioned that all students
interested in tennis may come and
bring their rackets for instruc-
