Vatican City
May Cover
Early Tomb
Passageways, tombs and possi-
bly St. Peter's long-sought grave
all buried beneath the Vatican
were described yesterday by John
Ward Perkins, director of the
British School at Rome.
Speaking in Aud. B Angell Hall,
Perkins showed slides of the layers
beneath St. Peter's Cathedral -
from pagan tombs to an elabor-
ate cemetery of the early Chris-
tian era.
* iRemains of the early Church
of Constantine are also found un-
der the present-day church, and
Perkins showed slides of a "mys-
terious shrine, which may have
marked, what was believed to be
the grave of St. Peter."
The shrine is built into the wall
of the Church of Constantine, and
under the monument excavators
found the bones of "a male per-
son of robust stature and ad-
vanced years."
Perkins showed several slides
illustrating the excavations be-
neath St. Peter's Cathedral which
began about 1935..
He noted that these recent find-
ings refute the former theory that
the present basilica was built on
Nero's Circus..
Perkins added that the theory
of the burial of St. Peter beneath
the Vatican is also based on writ-
ings of a second century priest
who gave a close description of
the monument.

Music Award
Gordon Sherwood, Spec., was
named winner of the George
Gershwin Memorial Contest Tues-
The contest, for the best or-
chestral composition by a young
American, carries a prize of $1,000
an~d a trip to New York City to
hear his composition, Introduc-
tion and Allegro, played by the
- ~New York Philharmonic Sympho-
ny under Dimitri Mitropoulos on
May 5 at Carnegie Hall.
Sherwood, an assistant librarian
in the University Music Library,
follows his good friend Reginald
H. Hall as winner. At the tim'e
when each won the award, they
lived at 320S. Division St. Hall,
who won last year, entered the
contest only after being urged to
do so by Sherwood.
The young composer has alter-
nated attendance at Olivet Col-
lege, Western Michigan and the
U~niversity, working between times
as a factory-worker and dish-
The award is not Sherwood's
first. His "Sonata for Violin and
Piano" won a first prize in the an-
nual Young Composers' Contest
sponsored by the National Federa-
tion of Music Clubs in 1955. The
first movement of a symphony, of
which "Introduction and Allegro"
comprised the third and fourth
movements, earned him the Louis-
Ville, Orchestra Award last Year.
He has been composing for about
12 years.

Thurston B. McLeran, called Mac
by his friends, is an engineer with
Southern Bell Telephone and Tele-
graph Company at Decatur, Georgia.
Much of his work is concerned
with the future-planning for tele-
phone service to meet predicted de-
mands a year, or five years ahead.
"My biggest job to date," Mac
says, "has been engineering addi-.
tional communications facilities for
an airbase and adjoining aircraft
factory in our district. This means,
making field studies of the cus-
tomer's requirements and planning
how new telephone facilities can best
meet them. Then I translate this in-

It's a big job, and gives me a lot of
responsibility. It's ehallenging work,
too, for an engineer."
Figuring on his own future con-
cerns Mac also. He graduated from
Georgia Tech in 1952, with a B.S. in
Electrical Engineering. He went with
the telephone company because of
the advancement opportunities it of-
fered. Today, Mac is married and
has one child. He looks forward to
an interesting career in a growing
business where individuals can ad-

take them.
