Beaven Urges More Speech Teachers
A'"belligerent, scholarly atti-
de" toward folk music is what
>many Americans are falling in-
was the feeling of a small dis-
ssion group of folk music lovers,
>nsored by the Inter-Arts Union.
This attitude is fine, but anyone
.o takes it 'misses the "folksy"
nosphere. The group agreed that
discussers themselves were
lty of this attitude, sitting down

And you don't have to have a
good voice to sing either, the

The panel put spontaneous im-
provized "jazz" in close relation to
folk music, and pointed out the dif-
ference between popular and folk
POPULAR SONGS are ground
out by machines - all an origina-
tor has to do is get a band to put
his song on wax and the records go

Composers who "graft" folk
tunes of their country into their
music are running a risk of los-
ing all originality and being at-
tacked as insincere to boot, ac-
cording to Ross Lee Finney of
the music school, who joined the
panel, mando-cello and all.
On the other hand, "I Wonder
as I wander," in 12 tones, is an
example of insincere borrowing of
a tune and writing another song
from it, Prof. Finney pointed out.
Leave nationalism out of your
music, he warned young compo-
sers. A composer who emakes a
symphony out a folk tune does no
good to the symphony or the folk
tune, the panel learned.

The teaching profession itself
has no idea of the widespread need
for public speaking teachers and
of the number of such courses now
being carried on by industrial and
busines organizations, according
to Winton H. Beaven, chairman of
the department of speech at Union
Beaven declared that industry
is very interested in the poten-
tialities of public speaking in-
struction. Many courses are being
offered to employes both inde-
pendently, and in conjunction
THE PROGRAMS of the YMCA
and adult education societies, as
well as university extension cour-
ses are proving very popular with
the public, he said.
For many, college credits are of-
fered, while some are available on-
ly to persons gainfully employed in
industry. One company even re-
funds a part of the cost of the
course, on the basis of the mark
received, he explained.
The Chicago Symphony Wood-
wind Quintet, a picked group from
the Chicago Symphony Orchestra
will present a concert at 8:30 p.m.
today in Rackham Lecture Hall.
The opening selection will be
"Adagio and Allegro" by Giovanni
Somus arranged by Heipried. Au-
gust Klughart's "Quintet Op. 79"

The concert will close with
"Quintet for Wind Winstruments,"
by Hindemith, and will be open
to the public without charge.
The type of person that attends
such programs can ordinarily be
classified in one of three catagor-
ies, Beaven said. There are the
socially inferior who realize their
inadequacies or want new con-
tacts, and those to whom speech
is the royal road to success, he

terms the 'grammar hungry,' is

The Rotunda Exhibit of the
University Museums is featuring
Fossil Flora of the Michigan Coal
Basin for the months of July and
"Fossil plants can frequently be
found in the coal mines and quar
urries near Jackson, Grand Ledge,
Saginaw, and other places in the
lower peninsula of Michigan.
There are remains of vegetation
that grew during the Carbonifer-
ous period about 250 million years
ago," according to Irving Rei-
mann, prefect of exhibits at the
AT THE TIME of the Carboni-
ferous Period much of southern
Michigan was a large swamp that
was gradually becoming filled with
sand and silt that washed in from
The fossil plants constitute a
mute but positive record of the
kinds of plants that existed in
Michigan during the past. It
showsvthe Carboniferous flora
was very different from, that
of the present, he asserted.
"At the close of the Carboni-
ferous period, most of the earth
became much colder than it had
been, and the swamps disappear-
ed," he said.
The surviving plants were most-
ly those with small, thick leaves,
that grew close to the ground in
protected places, Reimann ex-
"However, we know little about
them because very few of them
ever became fossils," Reimann
