Student-Faculty Relations
"The student is dept wing him
self of beneficial informal con
tacts with his instiuctois because
he does not want his'actions to be
interpreted as an insincere at
tempt to court Savo'," said Dean
Arthur R Wainock at a recent
meeting of the College Senate
Where in pi eceding student gen
mations, "apple polishing" was a
populai practice and manifested it
self in a vaiiety of ingenious tech
niques, the college student of to
day is almost hypersensitive of
cultivating peisonal iclations with
his instiuctois, according to Dean

II Layman's Idea Of Miller
I Is 'Overnight Success;'
11 Few Know Of Planning
An "overnight success"—that, to
the average swing fan, is the story
of Glenn Miller, whose sensational
"Moonlight Serenade" oi chcstra
will make its !list visit to Penn
State for Junior Prom May 3
Despite his phenomenal, record—
setting rise to fame since he took
up the baton, however, Glenn is
not a new figure in the niiusical
world For many...yea' s he's been
a "behind-the scenes" celebrity, a
"musician's musician," known as
one of the outstanding trombone
virtuosi and one of the grdatest ar
rangers in the business He helped
to organize and set the styles for
ouch bands as Jimmy Dorsey and
Ray Noble
Thought Long of Band
His band, comparatively new in
actuality, has existed in the mind
of the lank, bespectacled young
man for a long time Dining the
many years while he was playing
and arranging for other top-notch
ors, Glenn kept planning his
"dream band," I'm which he tucked
away choice ideas and revolution
ary arrangements When all was
1 cady, Glenn organind his band
with top-notch musicians and shot
straight to fame
Bob Strong, young bandleader,
summed up the feeling of the pro
fession when he said recently,
"Glenn is not only a great musician
and arranger, but one of the
grandest fellows in the business
I m sure I adinire Miller above all
the others in the field today"
(Confmued from page 1)
compensation i epoi I,+ the follow
ing explanation was added as an
amendment to the [imposed plan
"In these major offices, All-
College Pi esident, , Vice-President
and Semoi Class President, a fix
ed compensation is set up as a di
led chaigc against class fund
For the Senior Ball chairman
them is a fixed compensation of
$5O as a charge against the dance
income In the Junior Prom and
Sophomore Hop there are com
pensations of $5O each for the
chairmen and class presidents,
this being the only compensation
ieceived by the Junior and Soph
°mote class presidents For va
i ions committees, fixed compen
sations are granted to committee
members as a charge against the
income of these activities In all
cases the rate of compensation
bears a cluect relation to two fac
tors The actual woik in terms of
hours , involved, and the admin
istration of a financial host
'Graft' Eliminated
"Under this plan of fixed com
pensations all profits from dances
and other activities go into class
funds In short, the 40 or more
students involved in the system
receive no other types of income
horn these activities Therefore,
various types of graft and com
missions cannot exist"
The above plan with amend
ment was explained to the Cab
inet by Neil M Fleming, gradu
ate manager of athletics, and aft
er considerable discussion was ap
proved by a 14-6 ballot Six cab
inet members opposed the plan
Charles E Thompson '4O, Samuel
