"U' To Host

Moliere lI
A television portrait of Moliere
and his work, to be broadcast
10:30 a.m., April 28, over Univer-
sity Television, will mark the third
program in the series "France:
The Profile of a Nation."
The seven half hour shows rep-
resent the combined attempt of
the Romance Languages depart-
ment and the University Televi-
sion Service to serve up "a recipe
for a nation" with the aid of elec-
tronic devices. Alfred Slote is pro-
ducer-writer of the series while
Hazen Schumacher directed it.
"We used no definite format,"
Garnet Garrison, executive produ-
cer declared. "Rather the subject
matter, determined the approach
for each show."
The only link between each
show is the host Jean Carduner,
of the French department, who is
a native Frenchman.
z Features Denkinger
For example, the coming pro-
gram on Moliere will feature Pro-
fessor Marc Denkinger of the
French department discussing
Moliere, Prof. Denkinger's talk
will be interspersed with scenes
from the playwright's comedies,
acted out by both students and
members of the Ann Arbor Civic
A similar vignette technique
will be used in the following,pro-
gram on Victor Hugo, in which
the scenes from the life of Hugo
will be portrayed, Prof. Robert J.
Neiss, of the French department,
will recite Hugo's poetry in French
and English as pictures of Hugo's
friends and contemporaries are
In contrast to the lecture-vign-
ette format of the French litera-
ture presentations, is the docu-
mentary set-up of the two intro-
ductory programs, already given,
Garrison pointed out.
"By using a dramatic documen-
tary and stills on the land and
people, narrated by Carduner,
along with filmed interviews with
French people in New York, we
came up with a 'TV Documentary
Essay' rather than a travelogue,"
Garrison explained.
The interviews in New York be-
twen C a r d u n e r and various
Frenchmen and Frenchwomen on
their country were arranged
through the French Embassy.
Embassy Helpful
Garrison pointed out that the
Embassy was also helpful in send-
ing the French-made movies and
stills, and generally as taking a
great interest in the television
project. A special message from
M. Rusis, the mayor of Paris, was
recorded for the second program
on Paris.
The program on "Concepts of
Liberty" will feature both docu-
mentary and lecture techniques.
The talks of Prof. Paul M. Spur-
lin of the French department and
Prof. Roy Pierce of the Political
Science department will be
bridged with pictures and other
graphic material.

cast over University Television, the series deals with diverse aspects
of French life and culture.

television really proves invaluable
as a teaching device," Garrison
declared enthusiastically.
Art Discussed
For example, while Marvin Eis-
enberg of the Fine Arts depart-
ment is discussing "the two faces
of French art, reason and emo-
tion," two enlarged pictures, dem-
onstrating each of these qualities
can be flashed side by side for
Rubin Elected
FBA Leader
Chuck Rubin, '58E, was elected
Steward's Council president of
Fraternity Buyer's Association
Wednesday night.
Elected to the board of directors
were Dick Curry, '59, Jim Fitzsim-
mons, '59E, Frank Flint, '58. Mike
McGrath, '58E, Noel McIntosh,
'59E, and Alan Rosenbluth, '59.
Ray Conger was elected as alumni
member of the board of directors.
Existence of a new waiter serv-
ice of FBA was announced at the
Stewards were asked to consider
FBA expansion into laundry serv-
ice and sale of freezers to inter-
ested houses. It was pointe:j out
that OSU's Fraternity Managers'
Association has discovered savings
of 35 per cent in laundry costs by
expansion into that area.

The format of the seventh pro-
gram, entitled "Aftermath," will
revert to documentary style to
point up the current problems in
France caused by World War II.
As in the introductory shows,
Carduner narrates a film docu-
mentary, and is shown interview-
ing Frenchmen on current nation-
al issues.
Garrison explained that the
series is currently being broadcast
Sunday mornings over ten differ-
ent stations throughout Michigan,
including Detroit and Lansing as
well as Ann Arbor.
"Because it is on film," Garri-
son declared, "it can be shown
and is slated for showings to high
school and college French classes."
Garrison pointed out that this
was the first time one country was
used exclusively in a series and
that similar one-nation projects
would continue.
The series is another landmark
in the University Television's pol-
icy to further educational tele-
vision by exploring various areas
by working through the various
Dean Predicts
Lainv Increase3
Dean E. Blythe Stason of the
Law school predicted that law
to 2,000 by 1970 in a recent law
alumni publication.
Present enrollment is 900 and
increasing between six and eight
per cent annually. Total appli-
cations for admission have been
growing at the rate of better than
13 per cent annually over the
past four years.
The school still can accommo-
date all qualified applicants des-
pite the increased pressure for
admissions. It will be several years
before the limitation of physical
facilities will restrict admissions
the dean stated.

On April 20, the International
Student Conference dispatched its
third international student delega-
tion, this time to South America.
Encouraged by the successes of
such expeditions formerly, the Stu-
dent Government Council here is
planning to send a group of stu-
dents to Southeast Asia in the
Summer of 1958.
The ISC and SGC groups will
visit countries in the respective
continents for three monhts. The
trip will provide opportunities to
study the systems of education and
the problems confronting students
in the various nations in the world.
The two organizations differ in
the manner of choosing delegates.
The ISC has chosen student
leaders in several nations through-
out the world. The SGC plans to
take a cross-section of the Univer-
sity and thereby give a cultural re-
presentation of the university sut-
Religions Represented
The SGC group will contain
from 6-15 delegates, and will have
a minimum of one Negro, Jew,
Catholic and Protestant, according
to Anne Woodard, '57.
Student programs will be pre-
sented next fall to arouse interest
in the program. Later in the year
prospective delegates will petition
for the trip.
Students will be chosen on basis
other than positions of student
organizations, or government. Mu-
sical, dramatic and speaking abili-
ties will all be important factors.
Individuals must be able to ans-
wer questions intelligently and cri-
Present Culture
These are necessary criteria for
a great purpose of the trip is to
present the culture of Amreica to
students of foreign lands.
The ISC group receives partial
support by UNESCO which gives
it a travel grant. SGC will form a
Steering Committee that will draw
up a prospectus and submit it to
a local organization, making the
necessary contacts.
Both the SGC and ISC trips
were given stimulus and encour-
agement by the success of former
ISC expeditions to Central Africa
and South East Asia in 1954.

For the seventeenth consecutive
- year, the Wolverine Girls' State
will be held at the University from
June 18 to 27, under the direction
of the American Legion Auxiliary.
Three hundred sixty high school
girls will meet to learn practical
applications or Americanism and
good citizenship. They will be
formed into 18 cities of 20 citizens
each, and six counties of three
cities each.
Under the direction of 18 coun-
selors and a government director
they will learn how to set up lists
of qualified voters, establish mock
political party organizations, stim-
ulate political campaigning, carry
out general elections, inaugurate
officials, and organize executive
and legislative bodies.
In 1941 the American Legion
Auxiliary, feeling a need to ac-
quaint the young women of Michi-
gan with the various vocations
open to them," worked out this~
program patterned after the al-
ready existing Boys' State pro-
The 18 counselors, college stu-
dents, are the "key" contacts in
the organization because of their
constant association with the
girls. They not only advise, con-
sult and counsel but also attend
all sessions and activities with
their city andnall meetings with
the general counselor and instruc-
Through this training the Legion
hopes to "stimulate the desire to
protect the privileges and responsi-
gilities of the democratic form of
government" and to strengthen
their faith in the democratic way
of life.
After living in Stockwell Hall
for 10 days the girls will choose 2
girls to attend a similar conven-
tion, Girls' Nation, in Washington,

dic theme of the all-campus
dance. Seven foot effigies of two
Norse will guard the door.
Entertaining during intermission
will be the Pershing Rifles drill
team, termed "a real snappy show
drill team composed of college stu-
dents" by Lieutenant Wesley Van
Requests will be taken for "fav-
orite tunes" and current hits.
Dancers may also hear songs by
Patti Brown, the Glee Club and the
Merry Three and entertainment
by "little Eddie Santini."
Ruhl's dance orchestra has
played for homecomings, proms
and big dances, including J-Hops,
at many Michigan universities. He
has entertained at malor hotels
throughout the country during the
past 12 years.

Zeta Phi Eta, National Profes-
sional Speech Arts Fraternity, this
year reestablished its status as
an active 'U' honorary.
For the past three years this
group that coordinates speech de-
partments and schools and facili-
tates exchanging of ideas has been
off campus.
The group helps to build a
professional philyosophy for wom-
en engaged in speech professions,
Nordic Motif



and stimulates and encourages all
worthy speech and dramatic enter-
prises. Alice Carnes, pledge presi-
dent, has helped the local group
to take on various projects.
This year members read to chil-
dren at Ann Arbor hospitals, ush-
ered for the first night perform-
ances of Speech Department plays,
and assisted judges for the state
wide debating contest held every
spring at the University.
"A special treat every year dur-
ing drama season is serving break-
fast to the stars on Sunday morn-
ing," said Barbara Shoenholz,
Zeta Phi Eta vice-president. "It
gives us a chance to meet and
talk with them."
Zeta Phi Eta, the oldest nation-
al group of its kind, was founded
October 10, 1893 by five women
on the Northwestern campus.
Aided by Prof. Robert McLean
Cumnock of the speech depart-
ment, this group laid the founda-
tion for the present 33 chapters

eral speech, speech therapy, radio,
television, theatre and special ed-
Zeta alumni include such well-
known names as Cornelia Otis
Skinner, Lynne Fontaine, Mary
Martin, and Olivia DeHaviland.
Last year Ethel Waters was ini-
tiated into the local chapter as an
honorary member.
The advisor for Zeta this year
in the absence of their regular ad-
visor, Mrs. Claribel Baird, was
Mrs. Richard DeMain.
Officers for the past year were
