Versatility Key To Daincer'7s Career
A * * * *

Ex-Chaplain of Scottish
University Visiting City

"To be a dancer in America, you
have to do everything nowadays,"
says Jeanne Parsons, Grad., at-
tractive veteran of musical comedy
and ballet who is finishing her
Master's degree in speech at the
University this summer.
"You can't just specialize in any
kind of dance. When you audition
you have to be a technical ballet
dancer, free modern dancer, and,
have a style of your own. You never
know what you will be asked to do,
but have to be able to do it when
you are."
* * *
THESE WORDS from the lips
of a trouper, who has danced vir-
tually every role in "Oklahoma"
and who will be dancing in the
Speech Department's forthcoming
production of "Tales of Hoffman,"
serve to dispel all thoughts that
there are still barriers between
show dance, modern dance, and
Miss Parsons, who has studied
under such - greats as Anthony
Tudor, Margaret Craske, Hanya
Holm, and Louis Horst, is a liv-
Finish Battle
On Color TV
NEW YORK-- (P) -The long
fight over color television was for-
mally ended yesterday as the Col-
umbia Broadcasting System said
it would go along with the pro-
posed new compatible system.
CBS said it would start sending
out some color programs to af-
filiated stations on an experimen-
tal basis Sept. 15.
Regular color telecasts for the
public must await Federal Com-
munications Commission action on
the new system.
In effect CBS joined hands with
its arch rival in color TV, Radio
Corporation of America, which pe-
titioned the FCC a.month ago to
approve the compatible standards
developed by the National Televi-
sion System Committee, an indus-
try wide group.
Indians To Hear
Calcutta Teacher
Prof. Amiya Chakravarty of the
English department at Calcutta
University will speak to the India
Students' Association at 7:30 p.m.
today in Rm. 3G of the Union.
The subject of his talk will be
"Tagore-The Poet- of India, with
Readings from his Poetry."

Parachuting with the British
Air Force, contact with the French
underground during World War
II, and five years of work with stu-
dents at the University of Glas-
gow are ajl included in the varied
background of the Rev. J. Frazer
McLuskey, a Scottish Minister,
who is visiting Ann Arbor this
Rev. McLuskey is one of ten Bri-
tish Ministers who are in the Uni-
ted States for eight weeks as part
of an exchange program between
the National Council of Churches
and the British Council of

ing daily and Sunday interde-
nominational services in the
university chapel, were all in-
cluded in the Chaplain's duties.
In comparing American and
Scottish University life Rev. Mc-
Luskey said one of the things
which impressed him was the scale
on which our activities are car-
ried out. The University of Glas-
gow Union, for example, is the

ing example of all the rigor and
discipline that goes into the
making of a dancer.
In addition to the tremendous
amount of training required, and
the arduous life caused by con-
tinuous touring, she says that "you.
also have to be able to step into
any role at any time."
"ONE NIGHT in Boston when I
was playing "Oklahoma," I was
scheduled to do the 'can-can'
dance in the dream sequence. But
ten minutes before I was to go
on, I had to change costume and
do the role of the 'child with pig-
tails.' I had to understudy three
roles besides my own in that show."
The high point of her career
was last year. When the State
Department invited "Oklahoma"
along with the Jullard String
Quartet and Judith Anderson to
represent this country in the
Berlin Arts Festival.
Miss Parsons recalled that the
Russians "gave us a scathing re-
view. They said 'if this is an exam-
ple of theatre in America, it is
dead.' But we were all very happy
that they had reviewed us at all
as they didn't bother to review
any of the other American shows."
"THE GERMANS. loved us
though," she continued. "Their
shows are usually dark and gloomy,
and they were impressed with the
bright colors of "Oklahoma." One

critic said that it was like a 'Sun-
kist lemon advertisement.' "
In August when she receives her
degree, Miss Parsons is going to
Europe to resume her dancing ca-
reer. Although she doesn't mind
touring, "you get to be Sort of a
gypsy and get used to it," she wouldI
like to join a residence ballet com-
panyso she would be able to stay
in one place and work on her own1
Hawaiian Club
Student Asks
For Statehood
"Hawaii pays more taxes than
ten separate states, has three times
the national Korean casualty rate
and yet has no voting voice in the
federal government," reported Paul
Ng in an informal speech at Alice
Lloyd Hall yesterday.
Representing the campus Ha-
waii Club which handed out or-
chids to anyone who asked a ques-
tion on Hawaiian statehood, Ng
discussed these questions with ref-
erence to Hawaiian history as well
as the present political situation.
"We have found," he said," that
the northern and eastern states
generally favor Hawaiian state-
hood and the opposition is from
the southern states. Also at pres-
ent Hawaiian statehood is being
introduced to the Senate in the
same bill as the Alaskan statehood
which is not fair to either terri-
Ng praised the educational sys-
tem in Hawaii as well as the fi-
nancial situation of the territory.
He also mentioned that the Ha-
waiians voted over two to one in a
national plebiscite to be admitted
to the Union."

Attention Plus:
Five Teachers
Per Student
A university with a staff five
times as large as its student body
may sound like an unusual phe-
nomenon to American students but
just such a situation does exist at
the Australian National University
in Canberra Australia.
Essentially a research institution
the National University has a staff
of about 200 and less than 40 stu-
The cause, of this situation is
that the University is set up to pro-
vide facilities for star graduates
from other Australian schools to
do their post graduate work in
Australia instead of going abroad.
