. UNION COED SHOW:
'Brigadoon' Star Enjoys Acting

The people in the Union Fall-
room were obviously marking time.
Many just sat around and talked.
The pianist sat patiently - idly
playing chords. A girl was copying
a dance schedule.
It was ten minutes before an all-
cast rehearsal of "Brigadoon," this
year's "Michigan Union Show Ko-
Eds Too."
To one side sat blond-haired
Marian Mercer, a senior in the
School of Music, who is one of the
two female leads. She plays Meg
Conference
For Leaders
Scheduled
A Leadership Training Confer-
ence, sponsored by the Union and
League, will be held at 7:30 p.m.
tonight in the Union Ballroom.
Tnhedconference will be divided
into discussion groups and will
analyze the various problems of
leadership.
Some of the problems to be dis-
cussed are: how to get a group or
members of a group to accept
more responsibility and how to
take care of the dominant or the
weak member in the group.
Campus issues will be used as
the basis for all discussion.
A summary of the proposed
control of such problems of lead-
ership will be presented to the
entire conference. Afterwards an
informal discussion, on any topic,
will be held.
Prof. Allen Menlo of~ the De-
partment of Educational Psycho-
logy and Research Assistant in
Community and Adult Education
at the University will handle the
conference.
Assisting the professor from the
Women's League and the Men's
Union will be Carol Sparkie and
Duane La Moreaux respectively.
The Leadership Training Con-
ference is open to the public.

Brockie, a flirtatious outspoken
girl-no mere slip of a lass.
"I've seen 'Brigadoon' four
times," Miss Mercer said, "and the
thing I like best about it is the
wonderful color it has. It's one of
my favorite shows."
Plays in Other Shows
And Miss Mercer is acquainted
with quite a few shows. She's been
in the last four Gilbert and Sulli-
van productions. For the last two
years she has played summer stock
in, an old mill at Saline, Mich.
"Summer stock was fun but hec-
tic,"said Miss Mercer. "In one pro-
duction, 'Blithe Spirit,' we had
three different leading men in the
space of five days. We finally
settled on one only two days be-
fore opening night."
She has also acted in many Dra-
matic Art Center productions in-
cluding the show's "Pygmalion"
and Checkhov's "The Seagull."
Miss Mercer appeared with Bil-
lie Burke in Miss Burke's most suc-
cessful vehicle, "The Solid Gold
Cadillac."
Drama As A Career
After graduation, Miss Mercer
intends to spend a year in dra-
matic school and then devote her
time to serious acting.

Right now, however, she is in-
terested in making "Brigadoon"
a success. "I think the MUSKET
show can develop into a campus
institution," Miss Mercer said
proudly, "The enthusiasm of ev-
eryone connected with the show
is wonderful."

Appeal to U.S. Women
Christian Dior Says
By DOROTHY ROE
Associated Press Women's Editor
If any American woman today
is not well dressed no matter what
her budget it's nobody's fault but
her own, says the world's most fa-
mous dressmaker.
Mild, balding, conservatively
dressed Christian Dior smiled dif-
fidently as he took a few minutes
out of his crowded schedule to
discuss the state of the nation's
fashion.
Tilting back in an office chair
in his plush New York salon, this
dictator of world fashion said:
"Only in America is it possible
for, every woman to be smartly
dressed in inexpensive readymade
clothes.
In Europe and other countries
the fashionably dressed woman
must have her clothes custom-
made, and she must be wealthy.
Here smart clothes in good taste
are available to everybody.
In the ten years since the then
unknown Dior of Paris burst the
bombshell of the "New Look" up-
on the world of fashion, this mod-
est and unassuming man has built
up a fantastic business empire
reaching practically every corner
of the earth and influencing the
way women look each season all
over the world.

'llini Men's Glee Club
Will Sing at Concert

By NANCY STAMM
This is the story of men,
the music they sing.

and

The University of Illinois Men's
Glee Club, started in 1887, has a
tradition which goes deep into its
history. It was first known as the
Men's Glee Club and Mandolin
Club, and was sponsored by the
University of Illinois Athletic As-
sociation.
The men who sing in the Glee
Club are anything but profession-
al musicians. There are only fif-
teen out of the one hundred mem-
bers who are enrolled in the
School of Music. The majority of
the men sing in the Glee Club only
as a hobby.
Use Musical Scores
The Club sings from musical
scores rather than from memory.
This, they believe, is the key to
their excellent performances.
Their repertoire satisfies every
possible taste in music. Selections
range from sacred and classical
works, through opera and oper-

etta, folk songs, spirituals and
contemporary choral compositions.
On the Illini campus the Glee
Club gives regular concerts each
spring and fall including a Home--
coming 'Pops' concert. The Men's
Glee Club, one of a half dozen
campus choral groups, is occasion-
ally called upon to perform for
special campus events and before
community organizations.
Tours The East
In 1955, with, faculty soloists,
the Club appeared on Ed Sulli-
van's television program, 'Toast
of the Town', in connection with
their between-semester concert
tour of the East.
The touring Illini, consisting of
70 members, is under the new di-
rection of Prof. Lloyd Pfautsch
of the University's School of Mu-
sic. The professor is a graduate of
Elmherst College in Ill.
The Illinois Men's Glee Club will
give a combined concert with the
University of Michigan Glee Club
at 8:30 p.m. Saturday in Hill Audi-
torium.

WHAT'S THE LATEST thing in college
clothes? Packs of Luckies, naturally. So if
you've got a pack in your pocket, you're
right in style. That explains the answer to
the Stickler-it's Dapper Wrapper! Luckies
are always in good taste because they're
nade of fine tobacco-light, naturally
good-tasting tobacco that's TOASTED
to taste even better. Got a pocket? Stock it
-with Luckies! You'll say they're the best-
tasting cigarette you ever smoked!
