Refugee elief
Head To Talk
Quaker Charity Leader
Will Tell Problems
Prof. Albert Martin, formerly in
the German department at Brown
University, will speak on the "Prob-
lems of German Refugees".here at
4:15 p.m. Monday, March 20.
Professor Martin is sponsored by
SRA and by the Ann Arbor Society
of Friends, a Quaker charitable or-
ganization. He spent two years in
Germany directing the relief work
of the national Friends Service Com-
mittee, and returned last fall to re-
port his intimate knowledge of refugee
problems as they have existed during
the Hitler regime.
The Friends Service Committee has
been especially active in charitable
work during the World War, and in
Spain as well as in Germany. The
organization set up by the Friends
in Spain was so efficient that the
Red Cross, arriving later, used it as
a channel for their own funds.

Publication in the Bulletin is constructive notice to all members of the University.
Copy received at the office of the. Assistant to the President until 3:30 P.M.;
11:00 A.M. on Saturday.

Hillel Players' major production
this year, "Hospital Hill," to be given
Friday and Saturday nights in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, offers
many unusual features.
Holders of advance-sale tickets for
Hillel Players' production "Hospital
Hill," must exchange their tickets for
seat reservations at the box-office of
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre,
which opens today. First choice of
reserved seats will be given to these
The plot itself is almost comically
timely. All action takes place in a
hospital in a South American coun-
try on the eve of a revolution. The
hospital is government financed but
American operated, and the reactions
of the various American characters to
the possibility of a revolution in their
midst constitute much of the play's
These reactions also offer excellent
opportunities for character studies,
and these are worked out in some de-
tail, featuring a growth in some char-
acters and a degeneration in others.

college, will be directed back to their
days at Michigan.
In this feature of the world-wide
broadcast which will celebrate the
Michigan Birthday Party, political
rivalry between the two men will be
forgotten, and only their well-known
individual achievements since leav-
ing the Ann Arbor campus will be
noted. .They will broadcast during
the program from a birthday lun-
cheon meeting of the University of
Michigan Club of Washington at
Hotel Lafayette.
Another feature of the broadcast
will come from New York where
the local alumni and alumnae groups
are giving. a joint tea in Hotel Taft.
Here ,Lyman Bryson, '10, master of
ceremonies at the weekly American
Town Meeting of the Air broadcast,
will preside. Bryson, a former mem-
ber of the Michigan faculty, will in-
troduce various New York alumni,
chief of whom will be Bennie Fried-
man, former Michigan football star
and now grid coach at College of the
City of New York.
Bennie's task on the program will
be to execute a verbal "pass" over
the air. waves, accurate enough to en-
able Bennie Oosterbaan, waiting in
Ann Arbor, to snare it as of old; If
the skill of either Bennie fails, the
program will then be switched back
to Ann Arbor to be carried on from

Comedy and pathos are mingled in
this plot which traces this interesting
incident in the lives of the hospital
doctors, their wives and their sweet-
In line with the idea of impartial
character study, there is no dominant
lead in the play. Action is almost'
evenly divided between at least six
persons. The entire cast, moreover,
is essential to the plot.
Another unusual feature of "Hos-
pital Hill" is that it has been pro-
duced and acted entirely by students.
Harold Gast, '39, wrote the play, and
is also its director. In charge of pro-
duction is Madeline B. Meyers, '39.
A Hillel Players major production
has been an annual campus feature
for the last 10 years. In the last two
years, the plays have been written by
a Michigan student.
E.S.P. Proof
Ex,* pert
Experiments so far have failed to
prove the existence of any sort of
clairvoyance, mental telepathy, or
other form of extra sensory percep-
tion, Prof. Clarence Leuba, psychology
expert from Antioch College, declared
in a published statement this month.
Professor Leuba's claims support
the stand taken by University psychol-
ogists, who consistently have refused
to admit that present evidence has
proved that human beings are able
to experience external thoughts or
events without the use of their senses.
Duke Conducts Tests
No scientists in the University lab-
oratories have conducted complete
experiments on the subject, but they
are practically unanimous in rejecting
other work done in the United States
as "inconclusive."
The principle arguments advanced
to prove the existence of such things
as clairvoyance were brought forth by
psychologists of Duke University, who
conducted a series of experiments
with results they claimed were "as-
Professor Leuba's recent statement,
published in the "Journal of Applied
Psychology," a magazine for psychol-
ogists, attacks the evidence which was
allegedly gathered in the Duke labor-
Cards Used In Experiments
The Duke University investigators
devised the now famous extra-sen-
sory perception cards. Each card was
marked with one of five symbols, and
each subject was confronted with
these cards placed face down.
The test consisted in the subject's
attempting to name the results signi-
ficantly before the cards were over-
The conclusions of the investiga-
tion were widely published in two
books, and were heralded as "out-
standing." In ,many instances, the
Duke men claimed, the calling of the
cards was much more accurate than
could have resulted from a purely
"chance basis."
