Koizumi served as an interpreter ism Booth while he was in Japan oca an educational mission there aft er World War n. Dr. Earle O.

It's none other than Joe Fields, a senior in the music de partment who lives with his wife and family at 115 Jackson Circle, Victory Village. Joe has been playing the chimes since August of last year, and if he continues on through August of 1953 as he has planned, he will have played the Carolina chimes longer than any other per son. In order to play the chimes or carillons a person has to be a junior or senior in the music department, and must act as an assistant to the master carilloneur until the latter graduates. Joe's assistant is Fred Rierson, a Phi Karma Sigma who is attending sunW school and plays the chimes on Wednesdays. The bell tower, which was com pleted in 1931, was built on the. European system of manual con trol. There are twelve handles, like plw handles, according to joe which are attached to the clappers of the twelve bells in the tower. The bell itself does not STUDENT-FACULTY Students and teachers of the School of Business Administra tion will be ihe special guests of the sruent faculty hour this week.

Carolina Summer Session Chorus The Carolina Summer Session Chorus will present a concert on Thursday night, July 10, in Hill Hall. The Chorus will be under the direction of William Whitesides wC-a Almonte Howell assisting at jjlerso and harpsichord. UtalXfc feature of the program tflS b& the Bach Cantata No. 106, "OcO'tTime Is the Best." The rest cf the program will consist of the three madrigals by Palestrina, Gibbons and Morley, and two American works, "Be Glad Then America" by William Billings, America's earliest native-born composer, and "Alleluia" by the contemporary, Randall Thomp son. During the Bach Cantata the chorus will be joined by three soloists, John Park, Greenville, S. C, tenor; George Muns, Chapel Hill, bass, and Maurine Synan, Memphis, Tenn., alto, and will be assisted by a small orchestra of flutes and strings. Ga r i I Ion eu r Bell Tower move only tne clapper, witn only these twelve notes, ranging from C to E, it is possible to play in only three different keys. Therefore Joe must spend some time on re-arranging songs to suit the chimes. . . Joe starts his concerts on the chimes at 6:00 every evening with hymns and ends up around 6:30 with "Hark the Sound." His fa vorite on the bells is "Where Ere You Walk," and he also plays a lot "End of a Perfect Day" and Ring Out Wild Bells.' During the football season last fall Joe played the favorite songs of visiting teams all over the South, along with the traditional Carolina fa vorites. There is a practice board of cow bells in the tower where begin ning assistants used to practice be fore they tried their hand at the real chimes. For the past five years, however, the board has been out of use so now the as sistants have to practice on the bells themselves. "They usually start on some thing real easy,' Joe explained, and then work up to the harder pieces." The bells range in weight from around 3,500 to 300 pounds. The sound of each bell is determined by this weight, and the alloy de termines the quality of tone. Of the range from C to E, there are only two accidentals, or black notes as they would be on a pU ano. When Joe wants to play a real fast piece in one key, he fas tens the handles he won't be us ing and goes to town on the rest. A native of Durham who has been living in Victory Village since his freshman year at Duke, Joe is also band director at Chapel Hill High School, te Can emoirs College seniors within 120 days of graduation may now apply for acceptance by the Naval Officer Candidate School, Newport, R. I., for training leading to appoint ment 'in the grades of Ensign and Lieutenant (junor grade) in the U. S. Naval Reserve. To be accepted for the pro gram applicants must meet the necessary physical, military and educational (or professional) re quirements. The . processing in voles an Officer Qualification test, physical examination and interviews to establish . mental, moral, and professional fitness and aptitude. Most college applicants are ac cepted for Unrestricted Line Du ty with a training program of 120 days. Those appointed to a com missioned grade under the pro gram agree toserve on active duty for a period of three years, if re quired; and further to maintain their commissioned status in the Naval Reserve for eight years following appointment (this in cludes the period of active duty.) The applicant must be a grad uate of an accredited college or university, or within 120 days of graduation. Graduate students having t educational deferments may apply within a 120 day period prior to the date -of grad uation or on termination of such deferment, whichever is earlier. Receipt of a Selective Service Induction notice renders an in dividual ineligble to make appli cation, however, a cancellation of the notice makes one eligible again. A member of the Naval Reserve may apply regardless of receipt of Active Duty, Orders provided application is made in enough time to complete his ap pointment prior to date of re porting for duty. If enlisted in a reserve compo nent of the Armed Forces other than the Naval Reserve (inclu ding National Guard) and not on active duty or under- orders to active duty, application may be made upon receipt of a signed statement from the candidates service that he will be dischar ged if appointed to commissioned grade in the Naval Reserve or en listed in the Naval reserve for enrollment in the Officer Cand idate School.

A new miniature course has . recently been opened up at the Ranch House on the airport road, by B. C, Hedgepeth and Hugh Ross, both sophomores here. It will be open from 3 p.m. until midnight every day. Prices for playing are 25 cents until 8 o'clock and 35 cents thereafter. ' ' - What happens when quite un expectedly the ghost of one's first wife is conjured up from "The t Other Side"? This sort of situation can mean trouble, especially if one is very much married to a second wfe, and if the ghost of the first wife shows signs that seven years of being "over there," as she calls it, haven't apparently changed her manners as a capricious vixen so much as a shade. That, in a couple of sentences, is the plot of Noel Coward's "Blithe Spirit," to be presented as the first Summer Session pro duction of the Carolina Playma kers on July 10, 11, and 12. Many critics consider "Blithe Spirit" the gayest English v com edy since Wilde gave us 'The Importance of Being Earnest" more than half a century ago. Probably the role most vied for by actresses whenever this play' is given is that of Madame Arcati. It is the sort of role that could make an actress famous: in fact, it did bring fame to Mildred Nat wick who played the part on Broadway. "Blithe Spirit" was written just before World War II, pre miere being held in London in 1941. The overwhelming success of the first night assured the cast of a long run. For months "Blithe Spirit" proved the most enjoyable antidote to the terrors of bomb-stricken London. The comedy was given by the Playmakers here in 1946, but John W. Parker, director of the present company explains that there is a "sufficient turnover in Playmaker audiences after six years to merit production of the play again. Besides," Parker said, "we have to find a play that is funny enough to hold attention of an audience despite the summer heat. . . .and among those plays we have to choose from, Blithe Spirit'- is one of the best." The title of the play comes from the first line of Shelley's poem, "To a Skylark," but so far as the play is concerned the title refers to the character of Elvira who is conjured up "From the Other Side" after departing this life seven years before. Other than the title, Coward's play has nothing whatever in common with either Shelley or Skylark The leads in the play are -les Condomine and his vm- Ruth and Elvira Ruth beWl r second Mrs. Condomine and very much alive while Elvira is the first Mrs. Condomine and the wittiest ghost ever, to tread the boards. y Ross and Hedgepeth went to work on the course two months ago at the suggestion of . Teddy Danziger. They spent most of their free hours working on it. According to Ross the pair have "tried to avoid a commercial at mosphere." They think they have an ideal location, a nice place, to us Golf
