THE MICHIGAN D)ATYZ
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1938'
Called On Train
Chamber Of Commerce Is
Sponsor Of Protest To
The transportation committee of
the Ann Arbor Chamber of Commerce
will hold a public meeting today to
discuss the possibility of persuading
the Michigan Central Railroad to
continue its commuting gasoline
coach on the Ann Arbor-Detroit run.
The railroad company recently an-
nounced its intention of discontinu-
ing the service Dec. 14.
Many residents who have their
business offices in Detroit and several
University faculty members use the
special coach constantly, Chamber of-
ficials stated, and it is to the advan-
tage of the community to see that
this service is continued, they said.
The service was obtained more than
a year ago. It was estimated that
an average of eight or nine persons
use it daily, and at times the number
It was contended by the Michigan
Central office that fewer people use
the train, and that the limited pat-
ronage forces them to run it at a loss.
The coach leaves Ann Arbor every
moning at 7:45 and 11:15.
Raymond Spokes, chairman of the
tansportation committee, has con-
ferred with executives of the New
York Central Railroad, of which the
Michigan Central is a subsidy, while
in New York on business. It is ex-
pected that he will return in time to
speak at the meeting.

by that organization. The squad,
which now numbers 36 members, will
begin its activities next week.

used as a model for the squad, which

no police powers, but in the event of
a serious accident, a report will be
made to the police department at the
discretion of the secretary, W. M.
Strickland. An effort will be made
to secure additional members through
presenting the plan to various Ann
Arbor service clubs and through re-
cruiting by present members.
New members will be accepted only
if they are "responsible, capable and
have the best interests of the organi-
zation at heart," Mr. Strickland said.
He urged the cooperation of all in
the new program.
Africa and Ann Arbor, though geo-
graphically estranged, have been very
close to each other through radio
communication during the past year.
The local participant in this rela-
tionship is Dr. John D. Kraus, 30, an
amateur radio operator and the son
of Dean Edward H. Kraus of the lit-
erary college. The story of this un-
usual relationship is contained in the
latest Michigan Alumnus.
The operator in Africa with whom
Kraus has been communicating is a
Presbyterian missionary from Chat-
tanooga, Tenn., who until lately has
been unable to reach any other sta-
tion in the United States besides
Kraus. Since the first chance hook-
up with Kraus, this relationship has
proved most fortunate to the mis-
sionary, for mail service in and out
of the Congo is painfully slow. Sevenj
weeks are required for a letter to
reach the Congo from the Tennessee

"All Quiet on the Western Front,"
the war picture whose showing caused
such a furor in Europe and the United
States two years ago, will be shown at
8 p.m. Monday in Room 316, Michigan
Union, by Dr. Francis Onderdonk,
peace lecturer. The showing is free
to the general public, and is sponsored
by the League of Nations Association.
The 11-reel film is, according to Dr.
Onderdonk, apparently more com-
plete than the version first shown at
most theatres. It is a silent film pro-
duced by Universal, with titles in-
serted. Dr. Onderdonk will give a
running comment and explanatory
remarks during the showing.
"This film is probably the mos''
fought-over of all films made," Dr.
Onderdonk stated yesterday. "In
Germany the Nazis staged riots when
it was shown during the days of the
Weimar republic, letting loose mice,
snakes and malodorous bombs in the
elegant Berlin theatres where it was
shown, with Dr. Goebbels delivering
inflammatory speeches to the crowd
outside the theatre.
"In Vienna likewise, riots occurred,
and only after the intervention of the
American minister did the police as-
sure undisturbed performances," Dr.
