Pack Will Be Speaker
At Washington Dinnes-
Philip C. Pack, editor of the Mich-
igan Athletic News Service, will be
the speaker of the evening at the Ann
Arbor Army and Navy Club's Wash-
ington Birthday Dinner which will be
held at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 22 in the
Michigan Union.
Prof. Joseph R. Hayden, chairman
of the political science department,
president of the local organization,
said that reservations for the dinner
should be made with Stanley G.
Waltz, manager of the Union or with
Lt.-Col. F. C. Rogers, commandingj
officer of the University ROTC unit.

Perlongo entered the Law School
in 1934. He took notes from lectures
in Braille, and did his case work by
having the cases read to him. He
briefed these cases immediately and
typed his examinations. His handi-
cap has not prevented him from en-
gaging in other activities which have
enabled him to lead a life typical of
the normal student. He has become
versatile in several fields which have
aided him in achieving his goal.
At Michigan State College, from
which he was graduated in 1931, he
was an honor student. He is an
accomplished pianist, and played in
an orchestra for several years. He is
also an adept craftsman, being ex-
pert at repairing radios, at carpentry
and at reed and fiber work. His
ability in shoe repairing gives him
rating as an expert cobbler.
A Good Hiteb-Hiker
Also, as a means of getting about,
and possibly to show that even .a
blind student can be collegiate, he
has hitch-hiked alone to nearly every
section of the state, and has made
several trips to his home at Gaastra
in the Upper Peninsula.
As an example that being blind is
no handicap to success, he points to
his friend, common Pleas Judge
Ned Smith of Detroit, the only other
blind person to receive a law degree
from the University.
