By SUE RAUNHEIM
Seeking diversion from the te-
dious grind of legal study, a group
of students organized an associa-
tion which is now known as the
Psurfs.
Their first name was the "Ann
Arbor Surf-Board and Mountain
Climbing Society." Due to unfor-
tunate geographic location, the
group could not accomplish its
purpose. Instead they adopted
singing as their main activity.
Today they areucommonly refer-
red to as the Psurfs' the letter P
added in deference to the original
purposes of the society. It stands
for Pseudo.
The group began in the base-
ment of the Phi Delta Phi house
in 1941 when Thomas Tilley, now a
Detroit lawyer, gave birth to the
idea. They still meet there twice a
week for two hours of practising.
The Psurfs are composed entire-
ly of law students at the Univers-
ity. John McDermott is the direc-
tor of this year's Psurfs.
Favorite Numbers
McDermott has also arranged
and adapted the numbers for the
group. One of his favorite open-
ers is "Av Lucka Lucka." He ad-
mits that the members don't know
what the words mean, but this
number usually goes over big with
college audiences. "Ding Dong
Daddy" is another favorite song
The group dresses informally for
their appearances, some wearing
sweaters and ties and some, regu-
lar suits.
Throughout the year the Psurfs
have sung on numerous occasions
in Ann Arbor. Dance intermissions,
fraternity and sorority parties and
serenades have constituted the
majority of their appearances.
Just recently they serenaded Alice
Lloyd Dormitory "just because
they felt like it."
This year they took first prize

in Gulantics, the annual campus
talent show. Shortly after this,
they appeared on local television
programs and recently made a 15
minute film presentation for state-
wide television distribution.
Donate Services
Severalntimes the Psurfs have
donated their services forlocal
charity and hospital shows. At
Christmas they sang in the wards
at University Hospital.
The Psurfs have sung at a local1
restaurant, a tradition they wish
to continue. They sing about thirty
songs during the evening to the
customers there and in payment
for their entertainment are serv-
ed free beer.
Because the group spends so
much time practising to perfect
their numbers, whenever a mem-
ber gets married he usually drops
out for lack of time to devote to
singing.
This year the Psurfs have made
a recording which includes such
songs as "Mood Indigo," "Pen-
nies from Heaven," and "Lullaby
of Broadway."
The Psurfs like to have as much
variety as possible in their selec-
tions. The songs on side one are
generally of traditional origin
while those on side two are reps
resentative of college days.
