Fowler's station, ZL253, is a three

distant signals even more difficult.
Because his is only a report station,
and he is consequently unable to

Professor Bennett Describes
Federal Housing Act ProvisionsI
As a supplement of his review of
the Federal Slum Clearance Act which
appeared in a recent issue of The
Daily, Prof. Wells Bennett of the
College of' Architecture explained in
an interview the Federal Housing
Act passed by the last session of Con-
"The purpose of the Housing Act
is to encourage building and provide
employment for those identified with
this type of work by getting banks
to extend more credit. This act dif-
fers from the Slum Clearance Act
in that it in no way attempts to pro-
vide housing for the poor. Certain
interests opposed the Slum Clearance
Act and this legislation is an at-
tempt to answer these interests by
promoting building through more us-
"The Housing Act consists of two
divisions. The first, the only one
which at present is in effect. is an
the risk. At present an extensive
publicity campaign is being carried
on to persuade the public to take
advantage of this opportunity.
"Under the second division of the
Act, the government will make loans
up to $16,000 for the building of new
homes. These loans will also be made
to cities up to the amount of $10,000,-
000 for carrying out large-scale low-
rent-housing building plans. Al-
though this legislation for new home
construction has also been passed by
Congress and can be put into effect
at any time, at present nothing is
being done along this line until the
degree of success of the house im-
provement plan has been determined."

In all three types, the child as a
member of the audience is forgotten
and it is this reason that convinced
Mr. McCracken and Miss McCormickE
that a new type of play had to be
written. There is no "Broadway" of
the Children's Theatre which dictates
the moves of the smaller theatres over
the country. Thus the founders of
this group feeling the way they do
about developing an audience-con-
sciousness for children, can and have
developed a theatre which is entirely
local, from cast to script.
The third play of the group this
year will be the presentation of a
modern interpretation of "Cinder-
ella." A local playwright is working
now on this play which will be pre-
sented the first week in March.

THERE'S a delightful luxuriousness about
reading in bed. But some sense of guilt,
too, for most of us suspect that it's hard on
the eyes. You can read to your heart's con-
tent if you'll just give care to two things-
your posture, and the light you read by.
Posture's easy! Just be propped up enough
instead of slumped on the small of your
back. Lighting's easy, too, if you'll provide
yourself with the right lamp. A floor lamp,
placed slightly behind you, is excellent.
