ssions" will feature the second en-
neering student-faculty smoker
onsored by the Engineering Coun-
I at 7:30 p.m. today in the Union.

?main by Charles Forbes, '40E, past
raster of the art of prestidigitation,

:id New England resort centers. Sim-
ir performances were given by
>rbes at the Engineering Smnoker
st year and at the benefit presen-
tion of the Interfraternity Coun-
1 Christmas party.
The purpose of the smoker, accord-
g to James E. Brown, '40E, presi-
nt of the Engineering Council, is
foster closer social contacts between
.e faculty and student body of the
gineering school and to bring stu-
nts and faculty together toward
i ultimate better understanding of
utual problems.

Union Opera
Reunites Son
WithFather
(Continued from Page 1)
had found Roy Rectors before. In
every town he had visited during the
last few years he had thumbed
through the "R" section of the tele-
phone directory.
Positive proot came when he called
the enrollment department here and
found Roy's middle name to be Tru-
man. "There is only one moment in
my life that surpassed that," the
father said, "and that was when I
actually met Roy."
But at the moment when the father
knew that his long search was over,
his son was rehearsing for a.leading
role in the Opera. Not wishing to
upset Roy on the eve of his premiere
performance, the elder Rector chose
to keep the discovery a secret.
On Friday night he and Harold
Journeyed to Ann Arbor to see Roy's
performance in the musical comedy.
They watched proudly as Roy won
the plaudits of the audience with his
portrayal of "Hedy La Tour," exotic
sultry movie queen. After the show,
the father returned to Detroit with-
out letting his son know of his pres-
ence.
Brother Harold, however, could not
keep the secret. He had waited long
enough to meet his older brother, of
whom he had no recollection what-
soever. He went backstage, broke the
news to Roy, told him the whole story.
On Saturday, after the matinee, Roy
met his father.
The stories that each had to tell re-
vealed by how narrow a margin they
failed to meet on many occasions.
Harold worked as a salesman in Ann
Arbor while Roy was a student at the
University. Both lived in South Bend,
Ind., at the same time. Roy even
ran want ads in the Detroit papers,
broadcast on a missing persons pro-
gram over WJR, simply as a stab in
the dark, and in spite of the fact
that the father was then working in
Detroit, he heard nothing.
Roy has supported himself since
his mother's death in 1930. By teach-
ing during the winter months in Bay
County and attending the University'
summer sessions, he has been able to
gain three years of college instruction.
He will be given his degree in August.

Until March 15. students had bet-
ter not tread on the toes of any of
the 3,221 faculty members and em-
ployes of the University who are en-
gaged at present in filling out income
tax reports for the first time as state
employes.'
Of these, 3,221, the number receiv-
ing $5,000 or more is 187, according
to the University reports. Many of
those included will be required to pay
no income tax whatsoever because of
various exemptions.

Local firemen and policemen
are on the lookout for a small
girl with a perverted sense of
humor.
Last Thursday night, her voice
summoned an ambulance to pick
,up a sick person at 1936 Wall
Street. The ambulance arrived
to find all occupants well and
kicking.
Again Sunday night the phone
rang in the fire station and the
childlike voice reported a fire at
the same address. Firemen found
the house intact.
Police and firemen got together
and decided the same person was
responsible in each case, the only
puzzle being who it was and why.

Phoney Couple'
Awarded Free
Meals AtCo-op
The Wolverine, cooperative restaur-
ant, did not really believe that some
romantic couple would mistake them
for Dan Cupid.
Last week, as part of the fun-mak-
ing planned for their "Leap Year's
Leap," the Wolverine announced that
any woman who could actually snare
an engagement ring and present it
and the man at the party would be
rewarded with on9 full week's board.
Until Sunday night there were no
applicents. Then when the party
was at its peak, in strolled a beaute-
ous blonde leading a bewildered male.
She marched up to Michael Massa,
'41, master of ceremonies, and claimed
the meal ticket.
The girl gave her name as Jean
Cortwright of Fair Oaks, Pa., and
her catch as Tom Aye, '40, of Am-
bridge, Pa.
Then after several hours of gaiety,
the "girl" suddenly removed her
blond curls and revealed the hoax.
"Jean" was actually Jack C. Hoover,,
one of the members of the Coopera-
tive. The wig was one of the proper-
ties of the Union Opera.
Dimand To Speak
On Nishapur Ruins
Dr. M. S. Dimand, curator of Near
Eastern Art at the Metropolitan Mus-
eum in New York, will lecture at 4:15
p.m. Thursday in the amphitheatre
of the Rackham Building on his ex-
peditions to the ruins of Nishapur in
Persia.N
The talk, an illustrated University
lecture, is sponsored by the Institute
of Fine Arts.
To archaeologists and those inter-
ested in the art of Persia in about the
tenth century, the ruins at Nishapur
are not only interesting but highly
significant in revealing the civiliza-
tion of that age.
To the historian, moreover, and to
those interested in literature, Nisha-
pur takes on added significance, for
it is there that Omar Khayam is
buried.
