Artists Render / Excellent Performances Coolidge String Group Play Brahms Concert in Bovard Auditorium Seniors Awarded Alumni Privileges “Graduating seniors of 1941 will be the first members of a senior class in university history to be welcomed into active membership in the SC Alumni association without the payment of any fees,” declared Lewis Gough, executive director of the General Alumni association. Announcing the plans of the as- By Vitginia McCollister One might not expect the voices of the clarinet and piano to blend well, and possibly they wouldn't with lesser artists performing, but they were like velvet and silver when Rudolph Schmitt and Gunnar Johansen played Brahms’ Clarinet Sonata, Op. 120, No. 2. in the fifth Coolidge concert last night in Bovard auditortum. In this sonata the clarinet sings a rhapsody while the piano behind it is a whole orchestra. The small number of instruments in these B-ahms chamber works in no way limits the size of the ideas. A conductor who was associated with Brahms when the latter was writing the A-minor Trio for Clarinet, Cello, and Piano wrote that Brahms originally considered using its opening theme for that of a fifth symphony. The B-flat quartet, which the Coolidge quartet played, sounds in many places even more like a symphony. Like each of the quartets, it comes as a surprise, because it is so entirely individual and different from the others. In the opening vivace a theme of wildness and mystery is bounded by a tune that might be a Bohemian dance. The Coolidge quartet, the Brosa-Evans-Johansen trio, and Thomas Petre will play the F-major Quintet, Op. 88; A-major Quartet, Op. son on Sunday afternoon, bacca- an^ String Sextet in G-major, Baccalaureate Rites Prepared Dr. Daniel L. Marsh, president of Boston university, will be the speaker for the 58th annual baccalaureate service on Sunday afternoon, June 1, according to an announcement released by Dr. Rufus B. von KieinSmid yesterday. Opening the commencement sea- sociation, Gough explained: “The university and alumni administrations have within the pasf year completely revised the Alumni association program, coordinating all dues appeals into a single plan. “In accordance with this, seniors will be active members for their first year out of college and will not be requested to make their contributions to the Alumni foundation until they have been out of school one year.” One of the benefits of the new plan is that “it will provide membership for all seniors in their professional and geographical alumni groups as well as In the General Alumni association without individual payments to the different group organizations.” “As such,'’ Gough stated, “they will be considered honor alumni and will receive the monthly Aiumni Review, monthly alumni football-ticket- priority and privileges, and Invitations to all alumni activities. “After the first year members will continue their hcnor-alumnus status and will receive the all-inclusive membership privileges upon their making a gift to the Alumni foundation of any amount in response to the annual appeal.” trar's e Notice dents should keep and orderly files of ent grade reports ey receive so that y be available for reference and for y faculty advisers registration period, ts may secure re-the present session n g self-addressed envelopes in the the door of the s office, 157 Ad-Jon building, on or last day of the le comer card of ’ope should show the student is in University :s or University s and in which Theron Clark, Registrar.

Commissioner Explains Defense Cooperation Professor Hill to Talk at Aviators’ Meeting Prof. Earl W. Hill, lecturer in commercial aviation, will tell members of Alpha Eta Rho. aviation honorary, of his recent trip to Washington, D. C-, at the group's last meeting at 12 m. today in Elisabeth von KieinSmid halL In a letter released yesterday by the administration, John W. Studebaker, commissioner of the United States office of education, wrote to Dr. Rufus B. von KieinSmid. advising him of the ways in which colleges, faculty members, and students can best cooperate in national defense. Part of the letter is reproduced in tex*: “I wish to say an additional word to youi students. This has to do with the tendency of students to enroll in short defense training courses instead of completing ’heir regular coll?ge curricula. The defense training program operates under the jurisdiction of this office. I, therefore, have a keen interest in the effectiveness of the program. “It should be said, however, that the demand of industry for fully trained professional personnel in all the fields related to national defense is already greater than the supply, and the need for these fully trained men is going to be greater with the passing years. “It* would be a mistake, therefore, for a student who is eom-p?tent ‘o complete a full college course, which is related closely to defense, to drop out of that course and complete some short courses in order to engage in industrial employment at less than a full professional level. ‘The first obligation of college students is to fit themselves for the highest type of service; they should not give up the chance to prepare for their unique service in order to render a service on a level which can be rendered by a much larger number of men and women. “Very cordially yours, “JOHN W. STUDEBAKER, • Commissioner.’* Wampus Plans for Laugh Hit “The last issue of the Wampus wants to send students away laughing,’’ Editor Dick Mulcahy said yesterday as he sent the last proof to the printer's shop. Jokes, “Yowlings,” and the “Juke Box Jump” will further this desire when the magazine appears for sale at 9:50 a.m. tomorrow morning. As a parting gesture, the staff compiled a fake newspaper, The Daily Braack, similar to the Vulture and up to date. “And the Meek,” a short story by Howard Klenfield, and “The Glass House,” gossip column, will appear this month. An article, “It Was Worth It,” deals with the recent all-U show, the title offering some idea as to its content. A center spread contains pictures of campus activities during the past month. Entitled “Last Shots,” they convey a note of farewell, the editor said. As before, the “Girl of the Month” will celebrate a campus coed whose identity will remain a secret until the publication appears for sale. Assistant Editor Guy Halferty added that Walter Winchell and Eleanor Roosevelt have submitted guest columns for the issue. Militarism is the general theme .of this month’s Wampus. A cover shot reveals two uniformed troopers in full regalia. As a follow-up to the theme, part of the magazine will appear as if it had been edited at Fort Ord by a staff of conscriptees.
