Band Shows Better
By DONALD HARRIS
"Now friends, the Michigan
Band will begin by playing 'Mem-
ories', a medley of old familiar
"The Band has never seen this
music before. It is in a modern ar-
rangement. A good C Band could
play it, and it would be excellent
of course for any A or B Band. It
is a particularly good piece to play
for audiences who like the old fav-
THIS MAY seem like a curious
way to begin a concert, but this
is not a concert. It is a reading, a
typical event of the Fifth Annual
National Band Conductors Confer-
ence Workshop now being held at
The speaker is Prof. William D.
Revelli, conductor of the Mich-
igan Bands, and those to whom
he is speaking are the many
Band conductors and woodwind
teachers who each year attend
the Workshop to exchange ideas
with their fellow musicians and
to learn the latest In Band tech-
nique and presentation.
Of prime interest to these con-
ductors, who represent every type
of Band from high school to col-
lege, are the relative performance
difficulties of the pieces in Band
literature, especially those pieces
new to its literature, and the aud-
iences to whom these pieces are
* * *.*
THROUGHOUT the nation,
Bands are arranged according to
classes. The class in which a Band
falls is decided by the size of en-
rollment of the school it comes
from. Thus an A Band comes from
a school with a greater enrollment
than a B Band and so on down
The Michigan Band reads
through much music during the
five day session. In addition the
Workshop maintains facilities so
that the visiting Bandmasters
can immediately order the music
and have it sent to their respec-
When the Band conductors re-
turn home, ,they will have heard
a great deal of music which will
better equip them in selecting their
own programs, both from the
standpoint of audience and per-

EAST LANSING-The change
in political administration in
Washington is unlikely to produce
any major changes in American
management-labor relations, said
Prof. William Haber, of the eco-
nomics department, in a talk yes-
terday before the College Person-
nel Directors Association meeting
at Michigan State College.
Any. changes will result instead
from economic developments, long
in the making, he explained. Two
major factors explain the improb-
ability of any substantial change
in the present labor relations pat-
FIRST, the labor shortage has
put unions in an "exceedingly f a-
vorable" bargaining position, and
any decline in defense production
that results from a Korean truce
will not endanger that position.
The second factor is that la-
bor unions are in a strong po-
sition in our basic industries.
Despite "a good number of hys-
terical statements from many
union officials and others about
the effect of the Taft-Hartley
Act upon the position of the
American unions," the facts in-
dicate that unions have not
been weakened, he said.
Prof. Haber said that he fore-
sees no substantial revision in the
Prof. Haber is chairman of the
Division of Social Sciences at the
University and, in addition to his
teaching experience, has partici-
pated in many governmental com-
mittees and organizations having
to do with labor relations and so-
He was a member of Mayor
Frank Murphy's Unemployment
Committee in Detroit in 1930-31,
and when Murphy became Gover-
nor of Michigan, Haber was ap-

bate yesterday and charged that

The New Yorker asserted that
McCarthy "has not even had the
guts to answer to the Senate and'
the American people" in reply to
questions raised about McCarthy's
finances by a Senate subcommittee
MC CARTHY, in turn, told thei
Senate that Lehman was "com-
pletely unimportant in this body."
Lehman angrily retorted: "So
long as I have the strength, I'm
going to fight McCarthyism."
Lehman's blast came after, Mc-
Carthy read the Senate a letter
of sympathy he said Lehman wrote
on Aug. 6, 1948, to Alger Hiss, for-
mer State Department official who
was then under fire for alleged
DECLARING the letter would
give the Senate a "better picture'
of Lehman, McCarthy quoted the
New York senator as having writ-
"Just a line to tell you how
much I sympathize with you. I
want you to know that I have
complete confidence in your loy-
alty. You have been treated very

letter "old stuff." He said it had
been "trotted out' in 1950 during
his campaign for re-election to

FURTHERMORE, Lehman said

Commenting on McCarthy's re-
marks about his letter to Hiss,
Lehman told the Senate:

He said McCarthy does not
dare to answer the "many ques-
tions" raised by a Senate rules
subcommittee report about Mc-
Carthy's financial affairs.
Earlier, McCarthy had charged
that Monroney was active in.
"fighting those who fight com-
munism," and in a new flare-up
of their running feud the two
senators challenged each other to
name a single Communist either
of them had got convicted.
To Be Given
doctors, armed with gamma glob-
ulin and lollipops, start a three day
inoculation program today with
the hope that it will check the
spread of polio among children in
this northern Michigan area.
The program, tagged "operation
lollipop," will give protection
against the crippling effects of
infantile paralysis to 10,000 Mar-
quette County children,
* * *
ABOUT 35 doctors will admin-
ister the shots and give each child
The inoculation program also is
an experiment to see whether such
treatment will decrease the inci-
dence of paralytic polio.
Marquette County was select-
ed for the experiments because
of its high jolio incidence rate.
X'he county has had 19 polio
cases this year--17 of them re-
sulting in paralysis.
The scarce gamma globulin to
be used in the program was ob-
tained from the Office of Defense
Mobilization in Washington and
from The Michigan State Health
Dr. F. S. Leeder, director of the
disease control division of the
State Health Department, said the
program was not a treatment for
polio, but was an experiment in
Results of similar programs in
Sioux City, Iowa, and Huston,
proved gamma globulin effective,
Dr. Leeder said.

A gift of $10,000 to the Univer-

Burr Chamberlain, an alumnus of
the University and a Minneapolis
newspaperman for 50 years, was
announced yesterday by President

Winthrop Burr Chamberlain, who

tively served from reporter to edi-
tor of the Minneapolis Journal.
Mr. Chamberlain's good name will
carry on through the dedicated
journalism students the memorial
fund is established to help."
Mrs. Chamberlain also has given
$1,000 to the University chapter of
Delta Upsilon Fraternity. The gift
will be used to furnish a room in
the house as a memorial to Mr.

of the chasm. But he could not
