KLFUBLlO S-A Tttt ArtWna RefmblfC SO Sunday, Feb. », 1970 White LDS choir gets touch of color SALT. LAKE CITY (AP)- TherY ate two new faces- black faces in a sea of white ones—in the famed 375-voice Mormon Tabernacle Choir. For the first time in more than 50 years the 122-year-old choir has two Negro members. Both are converts to the Mormon Church. One, Mrs. Wynetta Martin, sang with the choir for the first time Jan. 22 at funeral services for the church's {Hi- year-old president, David 0. McKay. The second. Marilyn Yuille, auditioned for choir director Richard P. Condie in December and sang at her first performance two days later. The Mormon Church has been coming under increasing attack for its policy of denying the priesthood to Negro members. Women don't hold the priesthood. Exact records haven't been kept, bat one choice spokesman indicated there have been no Negroes in the choir for at least 50 years. Miss Yuille is a graduate student in music at the University of Utah and has a music teaching certificate. Mrs. Martin, mother of two daughters, has been employed as a clerk-typist. Yale coeds seefc improved women-men ratio New York Times Service NEW HAVEN, Conn.- About 40 of Yale University's new coeds invaded a quiet Alumni Day luncheon in Freshman Commons yesterday and, with clenched fists and placards, protested the ratio of women to men in the student body. One coed strode to the dias, seized a microphone and lectured the 1,000 stunned guests for three minutes on the plight of women at Yale- contending that coeds were overcrowded and outnumbered and that coeducation at Yale was a "myth." As she spoke, other coeds in the obviously well-planned demonstration marched among the tables of alumni diners carrying signs reading, "End Women's Oppression," and "Women Up Worn Under." THc alumni and their wives, clad in business suits and cocktail dresses for the quiet formality" of the- occasion, gaped in amazement at the protesters, most of whom wore blue jeans, sweaters and jackets. "That's apparently the way young ladies do things today, •' the wife of one alumnus commented. DIPLOMAT TO SPEAK . David G Nes, retired foreign diplomat in the Middle East, will speak at the Arizona Friends of the Middle East dinner at 7 p.m. March 7 at the Smokehouse Restaurant, 4701 N. 16th St. The school admitted women for the first time last fall — 250 as freshmen in a class of 1,200 and 300 upper- class coeds in the 4,000-member student body. Plans call for adding 250 women to a freshman enrollment of 1,250 next fall, as'an experiment before finally establishing a coeducational format. The proteslnrs, all white girls, identified themselves as members of an organization called "Women for a Better Yale." Brandeis president seeks Senate seat NEW YORK (AP) - Morris B.
