Student Group
Plans Cicago
Sociology Trip
Itinerary To Include Visits
To Hull House, 'Ghetto'
And Juvenile Courts
Announcing the third in the series
of Student Christian Association so-
ciologica field trips, William Wil-
snack, '37, president of the organiza-
t...... ion, said yesterday that the group
going to Chicago on May 1-3 would
be definitely limited to 40 persons.
Arranged with the cooperation of
the University of Chicago, the trip
includes in a tentative itinerary visits
to Hull House, to juvenile courts, to
the Chinese Chamber of Commerce
and the "Ghetto," notorious tene-
ment section of the "windy city."
To Visit 'Hobo College''
The student group, leaving Ann Ar-
bor by train Friday afternoon and re-
turning late Sunday, will also visit
the Plebian Forum, which is a "hobo
college" where professors and stu-
dents from the Chicago universities
and colleges give talks to groups of
tramps and hoboes. Following the
speeches the ragged listeners ask
questions, turning the session into a
sort of unique forum.
Wilsnack said that he expected to
get very low round-trip rates for the
railway trip, keeping the costs of the
tour to a minimum. The group will
stay Friday and Saturday nights in
dormitories of George Williams Col-
lege, according to Evelyn Maloy, '36,
in charge of the trip.
Chicago Professors Aid
Professors Earl S. Johnson and
Samuel Kincheloe, of the University
of Chicago sociological department,
helped in planning the itinerary.
This is the third sociological trip
sponsored by the Student Christian
Association this semester, groups
having made visits to Toledo and De-
troit during the past few weeks. In
Toledo 'the students numbering 30,
met with labor leaders and Y..C.A.
leaders, visited slum clearance pro-
jects, toured through the Negro dis-
tricts and shanty districts of the. city'
and. went through the art museum.
In Detroit last week, 20 students com-
prised the group that visited the
Museum of Art, police headquarters,
soup lines, rehousingCproject areas
and the Negro Y.M.C.A. on Eliza-
beth St.
Harvard Plans
New Course In
Tbeaching Work
A new joint program leading to
a degree of master of arts in teach-
ing has been established at Harvard
University and Radcliffe College, it
was announced yesterday by Dean
Edward Krauss, and is open to stu-
dents who wish to prepare for teach-
ing in secondary schools.
The new program includes nine
specialized fields of teaching, the
classics, English, fine arts, French,
German, mathematics, music, the na-
tural sciences and the social sciences.
The new degree has been made pos-
sible, Dean Krauss said, by combina-
tion of certain courses offered by the
faculties of Arts and Sciences and
Education, and will be awarded on
achievement evidenced by examina-
tions in the subject to be taught, in
education and on an apprenticeship
in teaching. The degree will be
awarded to women through Radcliffe

Students wishing information con-
cerning the new program should call

uate School of Education, Harvard

Of Radio's Squawk
William Shakespeare, fouihun-
dred years ahead of his time, re-
veals his opinion of the modern ra-
dio, in "As You Like It," saying "It
matters not if it be in tune so itJ
makes noise enough."
He might well have written for the
radio, as an analysis of his plays
reveals he used radio jargon, ac-
cording to the University Broadcast-
ing Service.
In "All's Well That Ends Well," the
world's greatest dramatist states,
"Then my dial goes true." In "Corio-
lanus," "Take up some other station,"
and in the "Taming of the Shrew,"
"The lecture will be done ere you
are tuned" are to be found.
Glendower, in "Henry IV," Part I,
says, "And those musicians that shall
play to you stand in the air a thou-
sand leagues from hence." "I think
the dial points to five," a quotation
from the "Comedy of Errors," and
"Ah, stand by," from "Anthony and
Cleopatra," reveal Shakespeare's use
of modern terminology, although not
in their modern meanings.
Cercle To Present
French Comic Play
"Chotard and Cie," by M. Roger-
Ferdinand, is to be given April 28 at
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
as the annual play of the Cercle
Francais, it was announced yesterday.
"Chotard et Cie" is a comedy in
three acts, and was first presented at
the Odeon Theatre in Paris on Oct.
19, 1928. The plot relates to the
eternal struggle between art and
money. The plays of the Cercle
Francais have been given continuous-
ly since 1907.

All persons having extra rooms
which will be available for Ann Ar-
bor guests attending the May Fes-
tival, May 13, 14, 15 and 16, are
urged to call the student offices of
the Union and register such accomo-
dations there.
Union officials stated that an efforta
was being made to enable all those.
in Ann Arbor during the Festival
season to find suitable rooms for their
stay in the city. The Union, League
and hotel facilities will be filled very
'arlv, officials pointed out, and by
having a register of available acco-
modations guests will be able to get;
.ettled easier and sooner.
The rooms will not be vacated forc
the entire Festival, officials said, and'
even those having rooms open forI
one or two nights of the week'
were urged to call and have themI
Later a committee from the Union'
council will inspect the rooms regis-
tered, and they will be graded ac-
cording to quality and price. How- f
ever, it was emphasized that all'
registrations should be made at the
earliest convenience of the personsz
having such rooms, so the classifica-.
tion and compilation could be made!

Three floors below the main floor
of University Hospital is an under-
ground city which is little heard of
but whose activity is of vital import-
ance to at least one-fourth of the
student body.
This city is composed of the of-
fices and labyrinthine storerooms of
the Hospital Stores, which supply
food for Mosher-Jordan, Betsy Bar-
hour, Helen Newberry, Adelia Cheev-
er and alumnae residence dormitories
and the League. They also furnish
food and equipment for the various
departments of the hospital itself.
Staggering amounts of food are
handled in the underground store-
rooms, for everything-meat, vege-
tables, staples, fruits and milk is first
shipped there, and then delivered inI
University trucks to the different
dormitories and the League. In one
day 900 to 1000 gallons of milk and
cream and two tons of meat are
checked through. In one year four
train carloads of sugar are sent out.
Ilospital Important Customer
After the main unit of the hospit-
al, Mosher-Jordan and the League
are the most important customers of
the Hospital Stores. On the food
order blanks sent from the dormitory,
which list the needs for a week's
menus, appear such items as eight
bushels of spinach and two hundred
fifty pounds of pot roast for one

meal. The League's requisition for
one day sometimes calls for 320 half
pints of milk and 340 heads of let-
Most of the fruit and vegetables
in the Stores are purchased in De-
troit and sent to Ann Arbor by truck
twice a week. Meat is contracted
for periods of thirty days from va-
rious packing houses and must con-
form to all government specifications.
Only parts of animals, such as shoul-
ders or ribs, are bought, for whole
carcasses contain too much rough
meat to be economical purchases.
'Spuds' Occupy Cellar
Almost every size and sort of room
is found in the subterranean maze
of storage rooms. Meat is suspended
from hooks in sixteen-foot refrigera-
tors, while sugar is kept in dry heated
chambers which are twelve feet high.
Although the stock of 5,000 bushels
of potatoes which was delivered in
the fall has been considerably de-
pleted by now, "spuds" still occupy
most of the long wood-partitioned
root cellar.
