Union Banquet to Feature Many
Prominent Speakers From
Faculty, Alumni.
Plans for the annual father and
son banquet, to be held at the Un-
ion on the night of Saturday, May
9, have been tentatively drawn up
by the committee in charge of
Spring Homecoming. An attend-
ance equalling last year's mark of
450 guests is expected by Albert F.
Donohue, president of the Union
,and supervisor of the function.
Last year's banquet included such
speakers as Judge Guy A. Miller, of
the Wayne county circuit court,
John R. Effinger, dean of the liter-
ary college, Harold H. Emmons, for-
mer Detroit police commissioner,
and Prof. John L. Brumm, head of
the journalism department. Dono-
hue will probably speak in behalf
of the sons at this year's banquet,
although no other speakers have
been announced definitely as yet.
The Michigan-Minnesota track
meet on Saturday afternoon will
be another feature of the father
and son program. All parents and
friends of University students will
be admitted free. The event will
begin at 2:30 o'clock at Ferry field,
and will be the only outdoor meet-
ing of the local track schedule this
spring. Swimming, intramural ex-
hibitions, golf on the new Univer-
sity course, and other events will
all be run in conjunction with the
banquet for visiting fathers and
The banquet will be followed by
an address from Prof. Laurence M.
Gould, of the University faculty
and a member of the Byrd antarc-
tic expedition, at Hill auditorium.
The arrangements have been made
so that the total cost of both the
banquet and the address will not
exceed $2.50. Motion pictures never
before shown will probably be in-
cluded in the Gould address.
Tickets for the banquet will be
placed on sale immediately atter
the spring recess, it was stated yes-
terday, while other preparations are
being made at the present time by
the committee in charge to accom-
modate visiting parents during the
three-day Homecoming period.

cooperated with the medical profession in
developing G-E products that safeguard
health. Notable among these are the x-ray

Beyond home and college, the use of Sun-
