not in Michigan where the back-
ground was laid, but in San -Fran-
cisco and Toronto, Canada.

MARCH4 Of TIME
"CANADA AT WAR"
Matinees 25c Nights 35c
"One of the most unusual speakers
we've ever had here" Prof. Waldo
Abbot says about Prof. Preston W.
Slosson, of the history department.
When Professor Slosson deivered his
scheduled radio talk on current world
affairs last Sunday, he spoke as usual
without words or outline or any sort
of script. His broadcast was to be
recorded, however, with fifteen min-
utes for each side of the disc. In
order to transcribe the whole half
hour, a pause must come in the mid-
dle when the record is turned. Thus
a sentence or so from the discussion
probably would be lost. But Profes-
sor Slosson saw no reason why it
should be, and at the end of the first
fifteen minutes, finished the Finnish
War to the syllable and second. The
recording was turned, and discussion
of the Eastern European situation
started as Professor Slosson's talk
continued. The conclusion came "on
the nose" exactly, and history was
made as well as discussed. Never
before had a program been quite so
completely rounded and smooth-as
well as extemporaneous.,
On the air today will be "Working
Their Way," over WMBC. Frances
Mendelson, '41, and Ward Quall, '41,
from Jerry Wiesner's class will inter-
view Eugenia Paprin, Grad., Vahan
kalajan, '41, Lee Delevin, '40, and
John Emery, '40. George Shepard,
'41, announces the program at 2:45
Then the "Student Forum" holds
sway over WJR at 3:30 p.m. Students
from the economics classes of Prof.
Leonard L. Watkins will participate,
Fritz De Fries, '40, announces.
Civic Series Planned
Officials of small municipalities
of Michigan will "go to school" be-
ginning Thursday. For the University
Extension Service, in collaboration
with the Michigan Municipal League,
is sponsoring a series of courses and
conferences for civic officials, at
Milan, to be conducted weekly.
PROF. TEQUIZ says:
QUESTION: What is a "Station-to-Station"
long distance telephone call?
ANSWER: A Station-to-Station call is one on
which the operator is asked merely to es-
tablish connection with a given telephone
number. Station-to-Station calls may be
placed by name and address if -the called
number is not known.
STATION-TO-STATION CALLS are quickly made and are
the cheapest. Use Station-to Station service if you are
prepared to talk with anyone present at the called
telephone as charging begins as soon as an answer is
received at the called telephone. For additional typical
Station-to-Station rates not shown below, see page 5 of
the telephone directory or ask "Long Distance" (dial 0).
