Ten official delegates and several
observers will represent the Univer-
sity at the Fourth Annual Conven-
tion of the American Student Union
to be held Dec. 26 to 30 on the campus
of City College in New York.
In treating the general theme
* Keep DemocracyhWorking by Keep-
ing It Moving Forward," questions of
education, national politics and in-
ternational affairs will be discussed
by delegates from the 200 ASU chap-
ters throughout the country. Among
the nationally known figures who will
address the convention are Jay Allen,
of the Chicago Tribune staff, Roger
Baldwin, director of the American
Civil Liberties Union, Leo Huberman
of New College, author of "We the
People," Prof. Max Lerner of Wil-
liams College, former editor of "The
Nation" and Dr. Clark Eichelberger,
director of the League of Nations As-
Following the discussKorns touching
on the ASU five-point program of
peace, security, civil liberties, aca-
demic freedom and racial and social
security, the national policy of the
organization will be established for
the ensuing year. National officers
will also be elected at this time.
At last year's convention held at
Vassar Codlege, more than 500 voting
delegates were present. Messages of
greeting were sent by many prom-
inent personages including President
Three main topics, "The University
We Want to Study In," "The America,
We Want To Live In" and "The World
That Will Give Us Peace," will be

treated in sectional meetings and
general sessions. Among the sub-
topics to be discussed are student
self government, cooperatives, stu-
dnt workers and the NYA, N'egro
problems, civil liberties, neutrality
legislation, the Spanish and Chinese
situations, national defense and the
refugee problem.
In an effort to secure as broad a
representation as possible at the con-
vention, the ASU has extended an in-
vitation to all student organizations,
faculty groups and university and
school administrations to attend and
participate in the deliberations.

For Radio Skihp
Deadline For Scripts Set1
At Jan. 20; Broadcast
To Be GivenNationally
The best radio program of the
Anniversary Celebration of the
University to be broadcast nation-
wide from Ann Arbor March 18, 1939,
will receive an award of $25, donated
by a prominent alumnus.
The deadline for all skits is Jan.
20, 1939, and the committee in charge
of ther celebration reserves the right
to adopt portions of all scripts that
may be submitted, although the prize
will be awarded for the best pro-
gram turned in.
In the building of such a program
students should bear in mind that the
finished production should be large-
ly musical, held together by drama-'
tization, Prof. Waldo M. Abbot, di-
rector of the University Broadcasting
Service, said. It must appeal not only
to Michigan Alumni but also to the
general public as well. It will feature
the University Band, University Glee
Club and the Carillon.
The program may be either unified
or in the form of skits introducing
the most popular of typical Michigan
songs and selections, he said. Drama-
tic incidents in the development of
the history of the University may be
used for these skits, although the
historical aspect of the program need
not necessarily be maintained.
Students who are not familiar with
the form to use in the preparation of
radio skits may refer to manuscripts
of plays and variety shows to be
found in the Broadcasting Library of
Morris Hall. A bibliography of all
literature on the history of the
University has been posted on the
bulletin board In Morris Hall. Further
information may be obtained from
Professor Abbot.

Before this fall, no definite evi-
dence had ever been produced to
prove that there were/human inhabi-
ants of this area at such an early
date. Searching for early Indian
data this summer on Great Cloche
Island, just north of Manitoulin
Island in the Georgian Bay region,
Dr. E, F. Greenman, of the museum
of anthropology, discovered the re-
nains of an ancient Indian feast.
Find Evidence
Later this fall, Dr. Greenman re-
turned to the island with Prof. George
M. Stanley of the geology department -
to determine the age of the find.
Evidence that Indians held such a --
feast on the beach on Great Cloche
[sland consists of the discolored sand
and stones on which their fire was
built, scraps of foreign flint and
quartz and bones of fish and animals
which made up their meal. Evidently
the meal -consisted of moose, deer,
beaver, sturgeon and another uniden-
ified type of fish.
The beach on which the Indians ate
heir meal, now 28 feet above the wa-.4
er of Lake Huron, according to Pro-
essor Stanley, was on the water level
vhen the redmen visited the island
hundreds of years ago. Two feet of
sand and gravel on top of their camp-
;ide, he says, indicates the former
high level of the water, which in,.
turn makes possible the dating of the
