Gas, Company
Seeks Permit
To Build Lines
Permission to construct a natural
gas pipeline to Ann Arbor was asked
by the Washtenaw Gas Co. in peti-
tion filed Thursday with the Michi-
gan Public Utilities Commission.
The Panhandle Eastern pipeline,
which serves Detroit, and passes with-
in. 22 miles of Ann Arbor, will also
serve Ann Arbor. The pipeline which
the Washtenaw Gas Co. proposes to
build would branch from the Pan-
handle Eastern pipeline near Milan
and connect with Ann Arbor on
Washtenaw Ave.
Charles R. Henderson, president
and general manager of 'the Wasn-
tenaw Gas Co., and Frank B. DeVine,
company attorney, presented the pe-
tition, which will be heard early in
June, to the commission.
Henderson said yesterday that ne-
gotiations for necessary rights of way
for the construction of the pipeline
are under way and that the detailed
work will be continued in preparation
for the start of actual construction
when the permission is granted.

Poetic Drama Return Predicted

pression of emotion, as distinguished
from communication, is a more prim-
itive language than prose and pre-
ceded prose, he said. In that light
it is perhaps easier to understand
why poetic drama is so much more
intense than prose.
Proletarian Trend Seen
The development of a proletarian
drama is the second trend visiblef
in American drama today, Professor
Rowe indicated. Springing up a l
over the country it appears to be a
folk movement, the first expression of
our industrial life. A factory as well
as the soil can eventually create a
unified culture, he said.
"Its purpose is not entertainment,"
said Professor Rowe. "The audience
that came to be diverted by the old,
old tricks found its nerves wracked by

who form 10 per cent of the total
population, pay 56 per cent of the
taxes, he said.
"One third of Poland's 3,000,000
Jews live at a subsistence level, andl
they would starve if it were not for
financial aid from abroad, primarily
from American Jews," Dr. Heller said.
The government, Dr. Heller point-
ed out, is entering into competition
wih some private industries, par-
ticularly those in which Jews are em-
ployed. However, when the Jews,
forced out of their own businesses,
go by the government monopoly they
are refused employment, he declared.
One out of every five people in
Poland is in the government employ,
yet in the city of Bialstock, where
out of the 100,000 population, 60,000
is Jewish, there are few if any Jews
working as municipal employes,
the country, he said. These have na-
turally tended to become proletarian
in tone.
"Certainly our time is a stimulat-
ing one for a dramatist," he stated.

sizes) the importance of good lighting, for easier and more com-
fortable seeing. It enables you to accomplish more in work,, play
or study. You need adequate light, not only for easy.seeing now,
but as a protection against abuse of the eyes. Prolonged use of
the eyes under poor lighting results in eyestrain and fatigue. Con-
sidering what your eyes do. for you, they deserve good light!

sight specialist regularly. And don't guess about your lighting,
either: Have it checked with the Sight Meter. Your eye is a mar-

tions. Your eyes will try to see in light that is far too dim for
easy and safe seeing. Under continued abuse of this sort, they
may be permanently injured. The Sight Meter can check your
lighting accurately. There is no charge for this service. Call
