For War Vital Industry
Nearly 18,000 university, college
and high school students were helped
to earn thier way through school by
the National Youth Administration
in Michigan during the past school
year, it was announced by Orin W.
Kaye, state administrator.
On the university level, 5,700
young men and women participated
in NYA jobs. The average earnings
of these college students was $12.79
per month. NYA funds for college
students in Michigan totalled $367,-
000. Forty-three colleges and uni-
versities benefited from these allot-
Experience in NYA production cen-
ters has provided America's "pro-
duction front" with a steady stream
of young machinists, welders and
other trained personnel for the
state's important war industries.
Nearly every major industrial firm
in the state-which has become a
major cog in the production of war
essentials-has reaped benefits from
the NYA program, according to re-
ports from industrialists submitted
Long before the Pearl Harbor at-
tack, the NYA was engaged in pre-
paring youth for jobs in vital indus-
tries, but, with the outbreak of war,
the training program was shifted
quickly into high gear with produc-.
tion shops being placed on three and
four shifts daily to keep pace with
the increased demand for war
Club To Hear
Talk By White
The organization meeting of the
newly-organized Race Relations Com-
mittee at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in
the Union will be highlighted by a
talk by Prof. Leslie A. White, of
the anthropology department.
The Committee, the first of its
kind to be recognized by the Univer-
sity, has as its purpose the bettering
of inter-racial relations-especially
in this time of a wdiid-wide struggle
for equality and freedom.
The problems of housing, the Ne-
gro's place in the war effort, pro-
moting anti-lynching legislation and
furthering a mixed white and colored
regiment in the Army are among the
questions to be dealt with by the
group at future meetings.
A parley will probably be held
some time in the future to discuss
general problems of race relations.
In order to promote better rela-
tions, the scientific, social and eco-
nomic bases of the race problem will
be studied, with a view towards tak-
ing action wherever it seems possible
Tien To Open
Professor Price At Carillon Keyboard
* * * *
Shirt-sleeved Percival Price, the
man who perches in the 10-story
high Carillon Tower and makes mus-
ic come out of 63 tons of bells, will
ring them out again this summer
when he begins his regular warm-j
weather concerts at 7:15 p.m. Thurs-
day and Sunday.
Professor Price-he teaches com-
position in the music school-is thea
University of Michigan's world-fam-
In the small tower room 'way up,
in the sky stands the carillon key-'
board which is responsible for mak-
ing the music boom out over Ann
Arbor. The, room might be part of
the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris1
if it weren't for two this-is-the-Unit-
ed-States gadgets-a hook telephone
on the wall and an electric clock with
a red second-hand.l
Visitors to distract the distin-t
guished musician? No, strictly priv-
ate. If you want to hear the music,
stand outside and listen, please.
Professor Price bounces all over
the keyboard . . . he bounces downi
on little wooden levers with half-t
closed fists, using his feet to trampt
down on foot pedals for the low,
The keyboard is something like a
spinning machine. Two rows oft
wooden levers are connected to small-
diameter rods reaching to the ceil-1
ing. The levers push the rods downf
and the rods make the bells clang.
Professor Price sits on an elevated1
bench big enough for three people
with no crowding, and he slides all
over it to tramp down on the right
foot pedals. When he's not using
his feet, he hooks his heels on a
At every quarter hour, the bells
sound out the time over the city by
virtue of a special clock-and-chim-
ing mechanism installed by a New
The carillonneur has an amazing
record behind him. He got his musi-
cal background in Canada and Eur-
ope, and his degree from the Univer-
sity of Toronto in 1928. Columbia
University gave him the Pulitzer
Prize in music six years later.
Since 1939 he has been University
carillonneur here and has been in-
vited to perform in Europe and many
parts of the United States. He knows
the carillon like a book-and has
written one on it.
An audience standing outside the
Carillon Tower hears a lot of bell-
music while Professor Price is on the
instrument, but the lucky person sit-
ting in the tower room can only hear
the clac of wooden pegs. Overhead,
bells ring and fill the whole room
Occasionally the professor grips
the wooden levers and presses them
down but most of the time he uses
his fists-with the little finger of
each hand protected by finger stalls.
When he hits the upper part of the
keyboard, the bells tinkle.
HSING CHIH TIEN
* * ,
An intensive course in beginning
Chinese, designed to prepare students
for war work and to provide a back-
ground for future study, will be given
in the Summer Session by Hsing
Former student and instructor at!
Yen Ching University, Peking, where
he got his master's degree in 1934,
Tien has prepared a course in con-
versation and writing which will
"provide enough training for stu-
dents to do elementary translating."
The practical aspects of the lan-
guage will be emphasized at the con-
versation sessions scheduled for 8
a.m. and the writing classes to be
held at 1 p.m., Monday, Tuesday,
Thursday and Friday in Room 2019.
Literature Course Given
Tien will also teach a course in
translations from the Chinese to ac-
quaint students with the historical
backgrounds of Chinese traditions
Four credit hours will be given
for the language course and two for
the literature class.
In the translation course, English
versions of such authors as the
famous poets Lee Po, Tu Fu and Chu
Yan will be studied.
. Although Chinese has been taught
at the University previously, this new
course marks the first real attempt
to permanently include the study of
that language in the regular curricu-
