(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is an interpretation of a child's im-
pression of the new University Hospital's Pediatrics Clinic on his first visit
Momn was right when she said visiting this Pediatrics Clinic place
would be fun. I like the toys.
'Course it'll probably be different when I have to see the doctor-
that won't be so much fun and . . .
I wish that girl over there would get off that horse so I could
ride it. There are enough other things around here for her to play
with. Why doesn't she read a book or something? I think I'll bring
her one, and then maybe she'll let me have the horse.
It's awful funny that Mom is sitting in that corner with all those
other ladies. I wonder why she doesn't have fun too. Only all the
chairs and tables and things are too small and she'd probably break
them if SHE used them.
It's too bad the ones we have at home-and the television set,
too-aren't all these colors. It's much nicer than all brown stuff.
Oh-oh, that lady, "nurse" I think she's called, just said our name.
Now the fun's over, I betcha.
* * * *
THIS MUST BE the doctor's room, and that lady must be the
"volunteer" I heard about.
Hey, there's a red chair for me, so I'll sit down and let them
talk. They're talking about me anyhow.
. Whoops, here comes the doctor now. Doesn't really look so bad,
but you never can tell.

Well, he was nice-and not even a little tiny bit scary. I like

Piano Sonata Recital
Scheduled for Tonight
A piano recital probing the mu-
sic of three well-known composers
will be presented by Prof. John
Kollen of the music school at 8:30
p.m. today in Rackham Lecture
Prof. Kollen's program includes
Mozart's Sonata in C major, K.
330, Brahms' Sonata in C major,
Op. 5 and Beethoven's Sonata in
E-flat major, Op. 31, No. 3. Ad-
mission is open to the public with-
COMING to the University in
1934, Prof. Kollen had previously
spent many years in Europe both
as student and recitalist. His
teachers while abroad included
Edwin Fischer and Carl Friedberg.
In this country he has also been
a pupil of Arthur Schnabel.
Although his concertizing is
now limited primarily to Ann
Arbor, since he teaches here,
Prof. Kollen has given recitals
throughout Germany and in
Paris and New York.
While in Paris he studied with
Nadia Boulanger, the teacher of
such composers as Roy Harris,
Aaron Copland and the Prof. Ross
Lee Finney of the music school.

COMMENTING on the reason
a pianist would study composition,
Prof. Kollen said that "it is nec-
essary for all performing artists to
study how music is made in order
to project its meaning intelligent-
Prof. Kollen was also very en-
thusiastic over the freedom a
university community affords in
selecting programs. On the pro-
fessional circuit the concert
manager usually keeps serious
"Stability of Fluid Systems and
Conditions for the Existence of
Turbulence" will be discussed by
Prof. G. K. Batchelor of Cambridge+
University, England, at 2 p.m. to-
day in 1400 Chemistry Bldg.

on Astrophysics, Prof. E. E. Salpe-
ter of Cornell University will speak

actions" at,3:30 p.m.

will be ample room for lighter
"But in Ann Arbor we can play
whatever we like," he explained.
"There is no manager's dictating.
In a little known spot on campus
there are musical treasures both
classic and popular to be found,
which students have the oppor-
tunity to enjoy when they *sud-
denly discover its presence.
One-hundred thirty-five albums
of 12-inch records from Gilbert
and Sullivan's "Mikado" to mod-
ern Prokovieff symphonies are
available for home circulation
from the basement study hall of
the General Library. Also includ-
ed in the collection are 12 long-
playing albums with excerpts from
"Guys and Dolls" and Rachmani-
noff's Piano Concerto.

THE INITIAL collection of rec-
ords was given to the library for
student use by Dr. Reed M. Nes-
bitt, professor of surgery in medi-
cal school in February, 1950. Selec-
tions of classical and semi-classi-
cal works were included in the
The records circulate in the
same manner as books, for a one
week period. Fines paid for over-
due albums and broken records
'are put into a fund for the pur-
chase of new records.
Since the opening of the record
library, heavy losses in scratched
and broken records have been suf-
fered, and many albums are now
incomplete. According to Fred L.
Dimock, chief circulation librar-
ian, there is no systematic addi-
tion to the collection, although oc-
casionally a donation in the mem-
ory of someone connected with the
University has been made.

THE LIBRARY collection is the
only record library circulating
records for home use. The League
and Rackham records are restrict-
ed to use within the respective
Dimock reported that future
purchases will be of long-playing
records, to avoid further damage
to the collection.

the audience is receptive to all

Important shortcomings in high
school students' education are
characterized by a lack of spelling
ability, insufficient vocabulary and
ignorance of the order of the al-
phabet, Clarence Barnhart, editor
of the American College Diction-
ary, asserted yesterday.
In an illustrated lecture before
the Conference of English Teach-
ers, Barnhart lamented the fact
that a student's language trouble
stems partly from negligence in
teaching dictionary skills. Because
two thirds of high school students
do not attend college, it is neces-
sary for them to learn these skills
in high schools, he said.

BARNHART suggested that a
dozen lessons in dictionary usage,
15 minutes long, should be given
Regarding the mechanics of
the dictionary itself, Barnhart as
a professional dictionary-mak-
er went into great detail. He said
there are two uses for diction-
aries: as a text and as a refer-
Each should be easy to under-
stand as far as clearness of deflni-
tion is concerned and accuracy of
detail, he declared. However, the
dictionary-maker must choose be-
tween a great quantity of words
and little detail, and a few, better-
