Too many bankers are afraid of
making money, Howard P. Par-
shall, president of the Bank of
Commonwealth of Detroit said
yesterday.
Speaking to the opening session
of the 19th annual study confer-
ence of the Michigan Bankers As-
sociation, he said, "Bank earnings
have been far too low. We appear
to apologize for being in business."
He suggested that banks, in or-
der .to secure a good profit margin,
avoid excessive interest rates on
savings accounts, increase service
charges and supervise government
securities more carefully.
Howard D. Crosse, assistant vice-
president of the Federal Reserve
Bank of New York, told the ap-
proximately 300 Michigan bankers
at the conference, that most banks
have not been successful in getting
highly efficient operations and in
adopting progressive management
policies.
A Connecticut banker, George
H. Stebbins, president of the Sims-
bury Bank and Trust Co., of Sims-
bury, Conn., deplored the present
tendency toward use of "blanket
formulas" to determine how much
capital banks should have to cover
their investment risks.

production of the "Messiah." She
is currently on her sixth nation-
wide tour after having worked
with the New York City Opera this
fall.
She has also worked with the
Boston Symphony Orchestra, the
Chicago Symphony Orchestra and
the New England Opera Company.
Miss Alberts has sung the "Mes-
siah" in Ann Arbor on three pre-
vious occasions. She made her
debut with the Boston Symphony
Orchestra in 1946 and was selected
by Serge Koussevitsky to appear
at his farewell concert in 1949.
Instructor Performs
She has also appeared with the
New York Philharmonic Orchestra
and the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Haugh, who sang "Messiah" per-
formances here long before he
came to the University to serve as
a member of the voice faculty, has
appeared in four Ann Arbor May
Festivals.
Matten makes his first Ann Ar-
bor appearance in this year's
"Messiah" concert. He has been
engaged in concert activities in
the East and is well-known for his.
oratorio roles.

This "Messiah" has been ac-
claimed since its initial perform-
ance in 1742 as the greatest of all
oratorios. Handel is said to have
worked without stopping for 24
days until the composition was
completed.
The tradition goes that Handel
was in the depths of despair when
he received {the work of the libret-
tist, poet Charles Jennens. Ordi-
narily having little respect for the
poet's work, the normally not reli-
gious Handel was deeply inspired
by the librettow
Once the work was completed
London would have no part ofdit,
so Handel traveled to Ireland
where the premiere performance
was held.
Establishes Tradition
The story of the first London
performance is well known. King
George II, overcome with emotion,
rose to his feet at thle beginning
of the "Hallelujah Chorus" and
the remainder of the audience rose
with him. This tradition will be
observed at Hill Auditorium.
The Choral Union presents the
"Messiah" each December, having
begun public performances of this
ambitious work early in its exis-
tence.
