Milanov Charms Hill
Concert A udience
IT WAS entirely fitting that the human voice, the most glorious of
all musical instruments, should have been dhosen to sing open the
seventy-seventh year of Choral Union concerts, and that selected for
the honor should have been the superb voice which is Zinka Milanov's.
The songs Miss Milanov sang last evening were mainlyfrom Ger-
man and Slovakian repertory. Of German composers Beethoven and
Richard Strauss were represented, the former by his Scena and
Aria, "Ah, Perfido," and the latter by a group of three art songs,
"Allerseelen," "Traum durch die Daemmerung," and "Zueignung."
Miss Milanov's treatment of Beethoven should put to rest that

Nixon Power Try Spiked

IT'S ONLY the latest in a long tradition of
little animosities, but an Ann Arbor resident'
has now offered the opinion that the University
should teach its students courtesy.
She bases her argument on the traffic situa-
tion: "Students ignore all signs and walk as
they please, where they please and when they
please . . they deliberately stop traffic by
stopping to light cigarets in the middle of the
"Can't the University teach them to be
The author of this opinion, writing a letter
to the Ann Arbor News, concludes: "Ann Arbor
is proud of the University's football team, why
can't they be proud of its students. The foot-
ball team creates a good impression for visitors;
the students create ill-will to both the residents
of and the visitors to Ann Arbor by their irre-
sponsible attitude to motorists and disregard
of their own lives."
THIS, of course, is certainly not the harshest
criticism 'U' students have encountered, es-
pecially in comparison to panty raid adventures.
And we can imagine that the critic has just
had a hard day, and has almost splattered two
or three students on the way home.
Still, it points up what is an unfortunate
continuing attitude of criticism from residents
toward the students. Students "hiss and boo"
in the movies so you can't hear the picture,

students make too much noise late at night,
and so on.
Being students, of course, we can understand
this problem a little more, but don't excuse it.
There's no particular pride, and no particular
shame attached to it.
But look where the criticism is coming from!
If there is a certain code of ethics for the
student body, it should in some part be recip-
rocal for the residents.
EACH year, especially during this housing
shortage, residents of Ann Arbor are forcing
students to pay more money for less than
almost anywhere in this country. A govergment
survey last year placed Ann Arbor right near
the top in cost of living.
Houses, some should be called shacks, rem-
nants of another age in home living, are being
rented to desperate students for prices which
border on the ridiculous-certainly within no
bounds of a code of ethics.
But this is good business, and there are few
cities to challenge the good businessmanship of
Ann Arborites.
And if we're going to speak about traffic
courtesy, there is no end to the number of
students who recall the hair-breadth escape
from the shiny fender of a driver smashing his
way through the mob crossing in front of the
Union. It's not usually a student driver-he
has some respect for his own kind.
REGRETABLY this bickering continues be-
tween student and resident. The above is
offered not as an attack but as a defense-
we're both to blame.
Concerning traffic, the size and situation of
the campus is also to blame. State Street has
no right being where it is and what it is.
But the University student is tired of hearing
about his trespasses on the resident, while the
resident is sharing so handsomely the profit
from the student's existance.
Actually, there is much to be gained through
understanding on both ends. The student,
working often for local charities, politics,
children's groups, and such, would welcome
further attempts for understanding.
Will the resident shake on it?

A PLAY for power always takes I
place around the person of an
ailing president or monarch. Some
of the most disastrous intrigue in
our history took place during the
illness of Woodrow Wilson, when
Secretary of State Lansing, uncle
of John Foster Dulles, was forced
to resign because he tried to take
over some of the powers of the

THE FOUNDING Fathers made
no clear provision that the Vice
President should take over the
powers of the President in case
of illness, and practice has kept
the two offices largely separate.
Charles G. Dawes, for instance,

missed a tie vote in the Senate
under Calvin Coolidge because he
said his alarm clock didn't go
off and he overslept. But it was
reliably reported that Dawes' late
arrival was deliberate. The two
men didn't get along.
Vice President Jack Garner like-
wise was completely out of sym-
pathy with much of the Roose-
velt program. Vice President
Charles Curtis was never close
to Herbert Hoover, and Vice Pres-
ident Henry Wallace, though in
sympathy with Roosevelt and giv-
en charge of the Board of Eco-
nomic Warfare, was in a constant
battle with Jesse Jones and Cor-
dell Hull.
Nixon, long before Eisenhower
became ili, had staged an adroit
and partially successful drive to

branch of government. He even

A TELEVISION quiz show called
"The $64,000 Question" has
gleaned more front page space in
the past year than the Geneva
conference. Last night's offering
gave no indication why.
To the dismay of the live audi-
ence, whose moans were horribly
apparent, only one contestant was
allowed to give it a try. As emcee
Hal March groveaed, "We ran out
of time folks." This happened as
he was about to put the $32,00
stingeroo on a dour gentleman who
has made himself the nation's fav-
orite baseball fan by answering
previous sports toughies.
The one contestant who got his
place in the sun was Reverend
Alvin Keshaw of Oxford, Ohio,
whose category was jazz. After
swapping reminiscences with the
charming Mr. March, the contest-
ant launched into a little sermon
about the relationship between jazz
and religion, which, interesting as
it was, took a great deal of time

from the two other victims who
were to have had their fling at
the big loot.
Kershaw were amazingly simple
and he got them all to the great
delight of Mr. March. Example:
March informed him of a young
musician who leads a famous quar-
tet and whose picture was on
TIME's cover. He then fumbled
with a record, finally forced it
onto the turntable, and played it.
Was he amazed when the good
Reverend guessed Dave Brubeck!

swer," he said and both men pro-
ceeded to mop their brows while
