To Substitute
Rise Stevens, Metropolitan Opera
star, will replace Lily Pons in the
opening concert of the Choral
Union series at 8:30 p.m. Thurs-
day.
Miss Pons, who is ill with the
grippe, was advised by her doctor
not to sing at the concert.
* Miss Stevens, often called the
"First Lady of Opera," appeared
at the University during the May
festival last year.
She -is. the first Metropolitan
Opera singer to be able- to cover
a voice range for three repertoires.
She sings mezzo-soprano, soprano
and contralto parts:
When offered her first contract
.from the Metropolitan Opera
Company, Miss Stevens declined,
sayinig she felt she needed more
experience and training.
She studied in Europe and
made her debilt at the Prague
Opera House.
During the following winter she
accepted the offer of the Metro-
politan.
Miss Stevens became the first
American-born star to premiere
an Italian opera in Italy.
She has also started in two mo-
tion pictures, "The Chocolate Sol-
dier," and "Going My Way." She
is well-known for her appearances
on the "Voice of Firestone" tele-
vision 'program.

Under grads
Earn 2.57
Grade Level
Undergraduate- students at the
University maintained a grade
point average of 2.57 during the
last- academic year.
Edward G. droesbeck, director
of the Office of Registration and
Records, in announcing the grade
points yesterday, pointed out that
this figure is .01 of a point less
than the average of the previous
year.
Retaining an average of 2.69,
which they established last year,
the women again came out ahead
of the men. The men's average
was 2.49, which was .03 of a point
less than last year.
The freshmen set their best' av-
e age since 1949-50 by darning a
2.41.,
A new record was set by the in-
dependent women by achieving an
average of 2.70. Their best aver-
age since 1947-48 was set by the
women living in residence halls
by getting ,an average of 2.66.
Men's residence halls averaged
2.46, sororities, 2.68 and fraterni-
ties, 2.48.
Sigma Delta Tau placed first
among the sororities with an av-
erage of 2.85 and the first place
winner of the fraternities was Phi
Epsilon Pi with an average of 2.80.
No Monument
To Originator
Of Tine Zone
WASHINGTON tP) - The na-
tion's capital seems to be infested
with statues.
Everywhere you look there's a
monument to somebody: to gen-
erals who took part in battles now
forgoten, to statesmen whose ac-
complishments have been worn
away by the pressure of new prob-
lems. .
'Yet where is the monument to
William Willett? Who today even
thinks of the man 'whose achieve-
ment is no further away than this
morning's alarm clock?
For William Willett did the most
to sell the idea of daylight saving
time.
Today some persons who have
been on daylight time went back
to work on standard time, and
some who have been on daylight
time will stay there for another
month, and all this tampering
with time is because of Willett.
Willett's idea was that clocks
should be set ahead for 20 minutes.
This would be, done in four stages
as summer advances, so that final-
ly the clocks would be 80 minutes
ahead of standard time.
Although he spent a lot of time
and money pushing his idea, Wil-
lett never got anywhere much in
his lifetime. He died in 1915, short-
ly before World War I made day-
light saving time a reality.

Union Finances Sound; Fees
Used To Retire Bond Issues,

WASHINGTON (J)-A moderate
autumn increase in employment is
expected by employers in most of
the natioi's principal labor mar-
kets, the Labor Department said
yesterday.
The department said the most
recent surveys of employment con-
ditions and employer hiring plans
in 149 major areas pointed to job
gains in both manufacturing and
non-manufacturing activities in
three-fifths of the centers.
The department's Bureau of
Employment Security, which con-
Employment Security, which con-
ducted the surveys in cooperation
witsh state employment security
agencies, said employers expected
the bulk of the expansion to be in
non-factory activities.
While most areas looked for
slight to moderate job gains in
manufacturing industries, the bu-
reau said employers did not expect

As "stockholders" in the Michi-
gan Union, University men have
nothing to worry about.
The Michigan Union's tinancial
position is good. In fact, all of
the money ($12 per year per full
time male student) received from
the Regents yearly by the Union
is used to retire the $2,000,000 of
bonds still outstandig on the lat-
est.Union addition.
The bonds are being tetired at
the rate of $105,000 yearly. This
rate should enable the bonds to be
completely retired in 27 years,
sooner if enrollment, sand result-
ing fees, continue to climb, ac-
cording to F. C. Kuenzel, Union
manager.
Build Addition
Previously, $1,000,000 of the,
$3,000,000 needed to build the new
addition came from operations
and allocations surpluses the Un-
ion had built up during the pre-
ceding years.
Indeed, this was,after the Union
had finished paying for its ori-
M ed 'Students
View Future
Medical students throughout the
country have indicated that they
expect to have a net income of
over $15,000 within ten years of
graduation.
A survey of 1,086 students, re-
ported in the Journal, of Bedical
Education, also revealed that
these students expect to hit an
earning peak of $22,000 at some
tinte during their careers.
"Helping others" was the rea-
son given by most of the students
for their having entered medicine.
Only one per cent said that they
could think of other careers which
could be more satisfying.

ginal building and two additions.
Understanding the Union's ac-
counting procedures, which are
probably a thing of beauty to an
accounting maor, is no joy what-
soever to the average student de-
siring to know how the Union
works.
D~irects Union
Ultimate responsibility for iu's
finances lie with the. seven man
finance committee. This commiit-
tee is composed of members of the
Union Board of Directors.
Following' policies: set down by
the Board, the finance committee
is able to borrow money and okay'
expenditures.
Among its more infrequent du-
ties, it appoints the Union Man-
ager. Kuenzel has been serving as
manager for the past 16 years. He
is in charge of the day-to-day
operation of the Union, ordering
the supplies, hiring employees, and
seeing that everything goes
smoothly.
The Union's services are quite
numerous and increasingly ex-
pensive. For example, even the
checking service costs the Union
$9,000 yearly.
Separating Ahe direct depart-,
mental costs (guestroom, cafe-
teria and dining room operation,
etc.) from the general accounting,
Union operating expenses came
to approximately '$200,000 last
year.,
The 183 guest' rooms operated
by the Union pay for approxi-
mately 75 per cent of the operat-
ing -cost.
