The body first passed a suggestion
to abandon the use of silk stockings
and to urge others to do so as a means
of curtailing Japan's finances in its
campaign into China. The second
motion pledged the members to write
letters to the United Aircraft Corp.,
of East Hartford, Conn., protesting
the sale of aircraft and other war
material to Japan for use against'
civilians in China. Fulfillment of
the action was left in the hands of
the members themselves.

All in all, a listing of corporation
executives in New York reveals a
multitude of men who left the Michi-
gan campus intent on fighting their
way to the top. An amazing propor-
tion of them were successful. That the
background won in Ann Arbor proved
an aid in other fields-to writers,
lawyers, artists and a host of profes-
sions also will be shown.
