Council Picks
Dunham, Brown
As Managers
Men To Serve as Senior
Baseball, Swim Heads
Miller Appoints 3 Juniors
For Swimming; Grant’s
Resignation Regretted
Tom Dunham, senior in biology,
will take the place of Paul Grant
this spring as senior manager of
baseball, following Grant’s resig
nation on account of the pressure
, of other work, it was announced
last night by George Cherry, pres
ident of the associated students.
Dunham’s appointment was ap
proved by the executive council,
upon the recommendation of the
athletics committee.
The council also chose Roy J.
Brown, junior in geology, as sen
ior manager of swimming for the
1932 season.
At the same time, Robert E.
"Hack” Miller, senior manager of
athletics, appointed three junior
managers of swimming for next
year, and two alternates. They
are: Edwin Cruickshank, Willard
Boring, and Robert Goodrich, jun
ior managers: and Carl Gross and
Paul Biggs, alternates.
Dunham and Brown each have
had two years’ experience, as soph
omore and junior managers, in
their respective sports. In making
known the change in personnel for
baseball this season, Cherry said
“It ' is with regret that Paul
Grant’s resignation was accepted
by the council, in view of his ef
fective work last season. Tom
Dunham the new manager, steps
into the work with two years of
service to the A. S. U. O. mana
gerial system already to his credit,
so baseball will continue to have
the best in efficient management.”

Students Slowt
It Fee Paymen >
STATISTICS show that more
students will be waiting in
line the last few days to pay
fees this term than last. Dur
ing the first two days of the
period allotted to pay fees this
• term only 480 have been paid
while 562 were paid the first two
days of last term. This makes a
difference of 82 students which
means that a greater proportion
will have to pay later. Cashier
E. P. Lyon urges that the stu
dents pay these fees as soon as
they can so as to prevent con
gestion of the last three days.

in length, extemporaneous and en

regular style of after-dinner
speeches. The speakers will not
be allowed to use notes and can

Shumaker Teaches English A
Eight Years - But He Likes It
L. K. Shumaker, professor in the
English department, likes gram
mar. That’s why he has taught the
English A course in the University
for the past eight years. Each
term the entrance English course
comes up for consideration, and
each term Mr. Shumaker takes the
job that other professors shun. But
he likes it.
“I am very fond of grammar,
and since very few of the other
professors care to teach it I get
the English A job from year to
year,” Mr. Shumaker said yester
“Eight years ago I did a very
bad job of teaching, but I believe
I now have it down to the point
i where I want it.”
Just eight years ago Mr, Shu
maker was asked to make a re
search of work that could be done
in teaching the English A course,
for five years he worked on the
problem, and then made up an ex
amination which he is still using
and finds very satisfactory for his
purpose. For the last three years
he has put the exam to practical
call it an aptitude test, which
determines one’s background and
general habits rather than testing
his knowledge of grammar, for I
can hardly hold it against a per
son who cannot speak proper Eng
lish, anymore than one who can
not play the pipe organ,1’ said Mr.
Shumaker. "I try to put the rules
! of grammar into some practical
[ use.”

Each Organization Outdoes
Previous Performances;
A.S.U.O. Series Close
The University symphony or
chestra and the University glefe
clubs appeared in a joint concert
at McArthur court last evening;
and are open to joint congratula
tions today, for each organization
outdid its previous performances
of the year to bring the associated
students’ concert series to an im
pressive close.
We need not comment on the
direction of Rex Underwood and
John Stark Evans; they set their
usual high standard. But the tra
ditional bouquets should go to
Howard Halbert, who was the so
loist for Saint-Saens’ concerto in
B-minor for violin and orchestra,
and to Loren Davidson, who sang
the solo, “Onaway, Awake, Be
loved” in the cantata "Hiawatha's
Wedding Feast.”
Each of these students showed
to what extent a student soloist
can grace a students’ concert;
each showed the result of sound
training in professional assurance
of performance; each went through
a difficult musical work with the
ease and the suppleness of a con
cert veteran.
Hors d’oeuvres to the bulk of
the program were offered in two
groups of three songs by the wom
en’s and men’s glee clubs. The
women’s group was topped by Ed

After a week of busy prepara

at 8 o’clock in Gerlinger hall. Any
one interested in the dance is in
vited to attend. There is no ad
mission charge and seating space
for a moderate crowd will be pro
Dancing is probably as old as
the human race,” Miss Marjorie
Forchemer, director of the recital,
said yesterday. ‘‘For many cen
turies because of religious preju
dice the dance as an art deteriorat
ed until the only form left was the
formalized ballet. During a score
of years interest in the dance as a
creative art has progressed rap
idly, and today is based on the
same general principles of com
position as music, painting, sculp
tory and other arts. The dance to
day is young, but is gaining in
strength and leads us to believe
that in the future it has vast pos
sibilities which at present we can
not foresee.”

consists of the following group and

cure places in which to practice,”
Barney Miller, co-director of skits
and acts, stated last night. “Un

use of Gerlinger hall.”
I A bulletin board for the use of

Eligibility Requirement
For Senior Manager
A complete revision of the ath
letic managerial system of the A.
S. U. O., including several impor
tant changes, was passed upon by
the executive council at its last
meeting, George Cherry, president
of the associated students, re
vealed yesterday. The council in
corporated the revised system into
a permanent resolution, to become
effective next year.
The following changes have
been made:
1. There will be a single senior
manager for both tennis and golf,
instead of one for each as before.
Two Years’ Work Needed
2. The senior manager for each
sport will be chosen only from
those who have had not less than
two years’ experience in manage
rial work in that sport.
3. No student may hold the po
sition of junior manager of a sport
for more than one year, and no
student may try out more than
once for senior manager of any
4. “The entire athletic manage
rial system shall be headed by a
so-called head sports manager,”
corresponding to the present sen
ior manager of athletics.
5. "The alternates for each
managerial position shall be pro
vided at the time of the appoint
ment to the regular positions."
6. “All awards (for managerial
work) shall be given immediately
preceding the respective sport sea
sons, but do not become the prop
erty of the manager until his sea
son is completed.”
Council Adopts Plan
The resolution was adopted by
the executive council upon the rec
ommendation of the athletics com
mittee. It was the report of the
athletic revision committee, a
group delegated by the athletics
committee for the purpose of look
ing into the managerial situation.
The members of the investigating
group are Robert E. “Hack” Mil
ler, Kenneth Moore, and Thomas
N. Stoddard.
In releasing the resolution for
publication yesterday, Cherry com
mented on some of the changes
in the system as follows:
“An alternate is to take the
place of any senior manager posi
tion left vacant, instead of the
head sports manager as in the
past. The head sports manager
needs to spend his time on the
managerial organization on the
campus so should not leave for
long trips with the teams.
Golf, Tennis Combined
“The combining of golf and ten
nis managership will give the nor
mal duties of one senior manager
in another sport.

Drunkard’s Reformation
Ends "Ten Nights” Revival
Complete even to the promised
reformation of tho drunkards in
the audience, “Ten Nights in a
Bar Room’’ opened for a three-day
j run at 528 East Thirteenth avenue
last night. Carrying a strong mor
:al implication throughout, the play,
presented by the Very Little Thea
tre Group, led to a dramatic cli
| max when the close-packed house
cheered the dictum, "Let the
liquor traffic cease!’’
The scene was laid in Cedarville,
year 1858, and portrayed the evil
influence of the saloon Sickle and
Sheaf on the peaceful village. Ex
perience and tragic death taught
the villagers - the frightful price
exacted by the demon rum.
i Especially good were Henry
Korn as Sample Switchel, Reginald
Coggeshall as Joe Morgan, the
drunkard who reformed, and Ed
gar Buchanan as Simon Slade.
William Tugman, the philosopher;
Emory Hyde, the gambler; Harvey
Green, Alphonse Korn; John Al
len, Frank Slade, the innkeeper’s
son; Mrs. William Tugman, lArs.
Slade; Mrs. Parker, the village
belle; Mrs. Florence Couch Shu
maker, the drunkard’s daughter,
and Mrs. E. W. Allen, the drunk
ard’s wife—other members of the
cast—dramatically portrayed the
characters and painted a fearful
picture of the liquor curse.
