Late Wire
(By The Associated Press)
It's A Steeplechaser For
Peggy Joyce's Fifth}
LONDON, Nov. 10.-A')--Peggy
Joyce, with four husbands behind her,
has chosen Vivian Jackson, 30-year-
old professor of astrophysics at Lon-
don University and gentleman
steeplechaser, as her fifth.
The couple said today they in-
tended to marry as soon as Jackson
obtains a divorce decree from his
present wife-probably next spring.
Divorce proceedings already have
been instituted, he said.
Mutual love of horses was largely
responsible for their attachment,
Jackson revealed, after Peggy sug-
gested demurely that he do the talk-

Plan Of

To Trap Planes
Great Britain

LONDON, Nov. 10.-( P)-A plan to
trap attacking airplanes in huge nets
strung between balloons around Lon-
don was disclosed tonight in the
House of Commons by Sir Thomas
Inskip, minister for defense coordi-
While Inskip did not elaborate on
his "balloon trap" plans, it was un-
derstood that the British Govern-
ment was making extensive research
along that line.
During the latter stages of the
World War similar seines were used
against airplanes outside London,
with a network of wire, strong enough
to crash a plane, stretched between
Gov. Fitzgerald Denies
Any'Senate Appointment
LANSING, Nov. 10.-(IP)-Govern-
or Fitzgerald said today he has not
offered to appoint anyone United
States Senator Vg take the place made
vacanft by the death of Senator James
Couzens, although .it had been sug-
gested Prentiss M. Brown might gain
seniority by an immediate appoint-
The Governor said that if this
proves to be the case, he may ap-
point Brown. Otherwise he will leave
the place vacant until Brown, who
was electedSenator in the November
election, takes office in January.
The Governor said he has made
no investigation to.determine wheth-
er appointment would help Brown.

Sophomore's Squirrel
Makes Ladies Squeal
Strolling across campus with a
squirrel perched on his shoulder, Milt
Frankel, '39E, of Jeffersonville, N. Y.
presents a living lesson of the reward
of patience.
Oscar, the squirrel, was found pros-
trate at the foot of a tree by Frankel
when he came back to Ann Arbor for
school this fall. Hoping that his
prowess for domesticating New York
State squirrels, and he's done it
plenty of times he says, would work
on the Michigan variety of Sciurus
niger rufiventer, Frankel took the
moribund Oscar to his rooming house
at 620 Forrest and began administ-
ering luke warm milk in small quan-
Oscar has recovered remarkably
well according to Frankel, and the
milk and eye dropper technique has
long since been .abandoned. In fact
Oscar is militantly omnivorous, his
maaster complained, and has an an-
noying penchant for pencils and his
latest chef d'ouvre was the better
part of a window sill in Frankel's
rooming house.
Frankel admitted that Oscar does
have his disadvantages as most pets
do, and that it has been hard to for-
give him for the neckties he's eaten.
But his greatest disadvantage, he
said, is the way he makes women
chirp out, "Isn't he kieeeuut!"
Adeiphi Club Hears
Deate On Uiities
At its weekly meeting last night,
Adelphi, campus forensic society,
listened to two members of the varsity
debating team, Eugene Gressman, '38
and Harry. Shniderman, '38, debate
the affirmative and negative aspects
respectively of the question "Re-
Solved: that all electric utilities
should be governmentally owned and
operated." Adelphi members, acting
as judges decided that the affirmative
side was the more persuasive argu-
At the conclusion of the debate a
lively discussion was held in which
the members themselves contributed
their personal beliefs on the subject.'

being given in the WPA correspond-
ence courses are achieving success, a
member of the correspondence de-1
partment said yesterday.
A second objective is the provision
of educational facilities for people
who would ordinarily be denied such
service, it was announced.
Conducted in conjunction with the
University Extension Division the
supervised correspondence "eurses
reach more than 900 students
throughout the state, it was revealed.
Centers have been organized in 29
cities and in 41 CCC camps. Each
study center has a WPA paid sup-
ervisor who meets a group of stu-
dents to assist them in their work, a
representative of the department ex-
The department employs 97 people
most of whom hold college degrees.
The professional training of 16 is not
available, it was indicated, but of the
remaining 81, four hold Ph.D's, there
are 26 with master's degrees, 37 have
A.B.'s, two hold L.L.B.'s, and five are
bachelors of science. Of the re-
maining seven who hold no degrees
five are office workers.
"Some of them were without work
of any kind; others were working at
manual labor; a few were back in
school, attempting to get higher de-
grees. living, in some cases, on bor-
rowed funds," it was said concerning
the teaching staff.
In Ann Arbor the courses are con-
ducted by a supervisor at the evening
school of the Ann Arbor high school.
The WPA financed plan was begun
by the University Extension Division
in Jan., 1936. Since then it has in-
creased its enrollment tremendously,
it was revealed.
Students receive credit for courses
by taking a validating examination
at the end of the semester in June
and February. Such credif will en-
able a student to enter a college or
university, the department explained.
Tryouts Called For
'Yeomen Of The Guard'
All students desiring to tryout for
the operetta "Yeomen of the Guard"
to be presented in January instead of
the latter part of November as re-
ported in yesterday's Daily, have
been requested by Valentine B. Windt,
director of flay Production, to report
at 2 p.m. at the Laboratory Theatre,
for an initial meeting or see or call
Mr. Windt any time during the after-
. Mr. Windt explained that there will
be vacancies for students not en-
rolled in the course so' that any stu-
dent on the campus may tryout for
a part in the Gilbert and Sullivan
operetta which is being produced
jointly by Play Production and the
School of Music.

Tells Of Discovery of New
Stars, Department Work,
University Observatories
According to Dr. Heber D. Curtis
of the astronomy department, the
life and experience ofathe astronomer
is not always as romantic or what it
is "cracked up to be."
Speaking over the University radio
hour on the program known as the
'Actuality Broadcasts,' Dr. Curtis re-
counted yesterday various happenings
in Michigan's astronomy work to his
interrogator, Turrell Uleman, chief
technician of the University, who
brought the broadcasting equipment
right into the Observatory.
As a challenge to those who might
find it hard to believe that astrono-
mers are something besides mathe-

dome would hamper the vision of the
"Yet this is the kind of work the
astronomy staff does every night ex-
cept Sunday-as long as it isn't
cloudy, and these are the things that
they have to contend with on their
nightly vigils," he said. It seems that
the main method of escaping the
cold lies only in wearing discarded
army or navy aviation uniforms lined
with fur.
Astronomy Interesting
Although astronomy may not be
romantic, it is, however,. very inter-
esting, according to Dr. Curtis. At
least the University doesn't lack f a-
cilities that make it so, he stated,
as he told of the many observatories
owned by Michigan. "Besides the
two instructive telescopes on Angell
Hall," 'e said, "the University also

The Social Security Act's payroll
tax for unemployment insurance and
old-age pensions will not greatly in-
crease the accounting burden of the
larger industrial corporations. Prof.
Herbert F. Taggart of the department
of accounting declared yesterday.
"Most of the larger firms already
have on file the records of their em-
ployes which the Social Security'
Board will use," he said, "but small-
er companies will have to establish a
system to keep such records."
Deducting money from employee's
pay checks .won't be a new task to
the many employers who take out
certain percentages weekly for in-
surance and welfare funds, Professor
Taggart asserted. No new means of
accounting will be necessary becausej
the tax itself is brief.
The government, on the other hand,
will experience more difficulty in ad-
ministering the taxes, Professor Tag-
gart believes, because keeping 26,000-
000 separate accounts with the na-
tion's workers and collecting month-
ly payments from employers will
necessitate a tremendous clerical
Although the Post Office Depart-
ment will distribute the initial in-
formation, Professor Taggart ex-
pects the Bureau of Internal Reve-
nue to collect the taxes in the fu-

the motions and changes of celestial
bodies. The recent spectacular mo-
tion pictures of the great prominences
on the sun, secured by Mr. McMath
with the new solar tower of that ob-
servatory, have aroused great excite-
ment in the astronomical world, and
opened up many new fields of val-
uable research, according to Dr. Cur-
Reflector Accurate
The broadcast also revealed how
the huge reflector, the moving parts
of which weigh 'about fifteen tons, is

lations are involved in a subject of
