The University Men's Glee Club
toured Europe this summer and
was told by an American informa-
tion officer in Germany that the
Club was doing more valuable
work than the diplomats.
The successful concert tour was
off to a good start when Queen
Tuliana of the Netherlands called
the Glee Club for a command per-
formance at The Hague.
Concerts followed at the Uni-
versity of Leiden, Amsterdam, the
University of Cologne for United
tSates soldiers in Weisbaden, the
University of Heidelberg, the Uni-
ted States Information Agency in
Stuttgart, the University of Mu-
nich, in Eichstatt at the mayor's
'equest, and in Rothenburg.
In Salzburg, the Glee Club ap-
peared at 'the Mozarteum, noted
music academy, and then Zell am
See under municipal sponsorship.
Another highlight of the tour
came on the Fourth of July in
Rome when the Club sang at the
informal reception of the Ameri-
can Embassy in the stadium where
the 1960 Olympics will be :eld.
The tour was concluded with a
concert in Lucerne and two con-
certs in Paris. The first Paris con-
cert was in SHAPE Headquarters.
Glee Club member Tom Lester,
'57Mu, said, "All of us in the Club
left Europe feeling that we had
done much to promote friendly re-
lations for the American college
student with the college students
of Western Europe. Also, we feel
that the University of Michigan
now has many new friends in
Western Europe."

The Literary College Steering
Committee was formed in 1945 by
Professor J. H. Robertson, associ-
ate Dean of the literary college.
The committee was originally
formed of student campus leaders
to keep the faculty in closer con-
tact with student opinion. Its
function was primarily that of a
"sounding board" to which both
student and faculty members
brought questions of an academic
nature.
In 1954, attempts were made to
expand the function from that of
a discussion group to an actual
policy-making organization. The
group planned a series of student-
faculty conferences and sent a
representative to the University
curriculum committee.
Several attempts were made to
change the science requirement.
The group hoped to substitute for
the specialized courses offered
now, a basic general science

course. However this was not suc-
cessful. Joan Bryan, '56, past
chairman of the committee ex-
plained, "The University moves
along in its slow, even way and
student opinion can't change it."
After several similar unsuccess-
ful attempts, the committee re-
turned to its old discussion meth-
od. Miss Bryan said, "We must
not underemphasize the impor-
tance of the committee however,
many of the ideas discussed have
been put into practice." She point-
ed out the present system of fac-
ulty evaluation as a policy which
was favored by the group.
Miss Bryan emphasized that
student interest is very vital to
this committee. She explained that
any interested member of the stu-
dent body is eligible to petition
for a position on the committee.
David Levy, '57, wl head the
committee in the new academic
year.

PROGRESS-The new North Campus is slowly taking form, as
work continues daily and buildings are completed periodically. In
the above hill-top view, the structure on the Teft is the Cooley Me-
morial Laboratory and the other is the newer Phoenix Memorial
Lab.

Art Collection
Rents Prints
Of All. Ages
Approximately 900 University
Art Print Loan prints, ranging
from old masters to modern ar-
tsits, and from realism to abstract
cubism, are made available to stu-
dents each semester at a rental
price of 50 cents.
The collection of prints was be-
gun in 1947 when J. L. Hudson's of
Detroit made a gift of 400 framed
prints to the University for student
use on a rental basis.
Located in the basement of the
Administration Building, the Art
Print Loan Collection traditionally
holds a display at the beginning of
each semester in the Rackham
galleries at which time students
may reserve prints to be picked up
later.
The collection will have perma-
nent offices in the basement of the
planned Student Activities Build-
ing.

GLEE CLUB IN ROME-The Men's Glee Club presented a lourth of July Concert in the Foro Ita-
lico, Rome, as part of the American Embassy's informal reception in honor of the Fourth. The club
spent 31 days on the continent, starting off with a command performance at The Hague for
Queen Juliana of The Netherlands.
