For Ann Arbor
Traffic Violators Will Be
Sent Courteous Letter
Drive For 200 Members
Begun; Will Resemble
Squad In Detroit
The Ann Arbor branch of the Auto-
mobile Club of Michigan announced
yesterday the organization of a Cit-
izens' Traffic Squad in an effort to cut
down traffic tolls in this locality. The
squad will be modeled after a similar
squad in Detroit.
No police authority will be given
the members, but a courteous letter
will be sent to all traffic violators who
are reported to the secretary of the
squad. In the event of an accident,
names of drivers and witnesses, in
addition to the license numbers of
the cars, will be sent to the secretary.
Reports of the latter class will be
made available to the police.
According to William Strickland,
manager of the local branch of the
club, the reasonable man who has
violated a traffic rule through ignor-
ance or indifference will appreciate
an appeal to his good sense. This
will make it necessary for the police
to handle only those who disregard
or resent traffic restrictions.
A drive for 100 to 200 members
has begun. These members will be
restricted by the safety committee to
those who have an interest in bene-
fitting the community and to those
who are qualified to make out im-
Prominent among the safety com-
mittee are Prof. John S. Worley, kho
is directing the traffic survey in De-
troit, Prof. Roger L. Morrison, chair-
man of this committee and chairman
of the traffic committee of the Com-
mon Council, Mayor Robert A. Camp-
bell, Sheriff Jacob B. Andres and
Chief of Police Lewis W. Fohey.

on the eve of the elections several
Labor leaders resigned their positions
in the party."
Professor Scott was inclined to
minimize the importance of the elec-
tion, saying that a Labor Party vic-
tory would not have resulted in a
much different attitude toward the
However, he said, the peace nego-
tiations at the conclusion of the
present war may be considerably af-
fected .by the fact that Britain will be
represented by a Conservative rather
than a Socialistic government.
Professor Scott also explained that
the Conservative victory might not
necessarily reflect the will of the ma-
jority of Englishmen, since the pop-
ular vote does not necessarily cor-
respond to the number of seats won
Illustrating this possibility, he cit-
ed the election in Canada last month
in which a minority of voters re-
turned a large majority of Liberal
candidates to office.
The defeat of former prime-minis-
ter Ramsay MacDonald was char-
acterized by Professor Scott as "not
surprising," because he chose to run
in a mining constituency favorable to
the Labor Party, which has recently
branded its former leader as a trait-
Professor Scott suggested, though,
that MacDonald may be elevated to
the peerage so that he may retain
his cabinet position.
An interesting sidelight of the elec-
tion pointed out by Professor Scott,
shedding light on the status of fas-
cist doctrines in Great Britain at the
present time, was the failure of Sir
Oswald Mosley's fascist party to en-
ter candidates in the election.
RAIN VS. RITES
AMSTERDAM, Nov. 15. - Rain in-
stead of rifles is the latest offer to a
Dutchman to the Ethiopians. "Rain-
maker" Veraats, who recently carried
out successful rain making tests at
Haarlem under official control, de-
clares that weather conditions in
West Europe resemble those of East
Africa. He asserts a most effective
sanctions measure would be to use
his method to prolong the Ethiopian
Old Stuff To This
By HARRY E. FARNHAM
WATERVILLE, Me., Nov. 15.-P)
- Thirteen or 14 years hence, when
boys of his age slip furtively around
the barn to light a forbidden cig-
arette, Carl Therriault may be par-
doned for indulging in a superior
By that time, however, he may
have retired on his laurels as an
undefeated stogie smoker for his size
and age. His parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Peter Therriault, hope so.
About the time Carl reached the
age of 18 months, he introduced him-
self to a stogie. Neither threats nor
cajolery could turn him aside from
the apparent enjoyment it gave him.
Brother Smoked Too
So Carlphasnbeen smoking ever
since. At present, a package of cig-
arettes and all the cigars that come
within reach during each day is Carl's
"We'd like to break him of the
habit," his parents declare, "but we
haven't had much success."'
Not knowing just what to do about
it, they permit Carl to smoke about
the house, hopeful that when he
reaches his fifth birthday he will re-
linquish the habit of his own accord.
An elder brother of Carl, now six,
also smoked when he was two, but
renounced the practice at the age of
five. Two other Therriault children
have shown no desire to smoke.
Around the modest Therriault
home, Carl follows the life of any
normal child but for his smoking.
He Chews The Ends
Carl likes strong cigars. He chews
the ends like a veteran smoker. In
the early stages of his habit, his par-
ents tried to cure him by presenting
the strongest cigar on the market.
The experiment boomeranged. Carl
liked it and employed full lung power
to demand more.
During the summer he had his
taste of fame. Strolling on nearby
beaches with a cigar in his mouth,
a straw hat atop his head and a cane
in his fist, Carl made conquests, but
bore his plaudits with the reserve of
a veteran man-about-town.
Prof. Thomas S. Lovering of the
geology department was recently ap-
pointed chairman of a nation-wide
committee which will conduct a re-
search project to investigate the solu-
bility of two component gas systems
in contact with melted silicates at
The other members of the commit-
tee are Dr. Arthur L. Day, director
of the Geophysical Laboratory in
Washington, Dr. G. W. Morey, cer-
amic chemist at the Laboratory and
Dr. C. H. Behre, Jr., chairman of the
department of geclogy at Northwest-
The committee received $3,500 from
the Geological Society of America.
Part of the money will be used to pay
the salary of a chemist to be hired in
the near future who will perform
the actual work on the experiment in
the Geophysical Laboratory. The
tests will be carried out at high tem-
peratures ranging around 2,000 de-
grees Farenheit and at pressures of
several thousand pounds per square
