SATURDAY, FEB. 17, 1944
VOL. L. No. 97
To Federal Income Tax Payers: The
Federal Commissioner of Internal
Revenue has now ruled that lodging
and meals furnished are "compensa-
tion" or "salary" within the meaning
of the Revenue Act and must be in-
cluded by individuals who make re-
turns, if such form of compensation
is furinished them by the University.
While there is no express statement,
we are advised that it will ordinar-
ily be satisfactory if room allowance
is reported at $144'per year and board
at $216 per year, or an average total
of $30 per month. Where less than
three meals per day are furnished
a proportionate reduction in the
amount reported may be made.

Apinaratus Exchange: The Regents
at their meeting in March, 1927, au-
thorized an arrangement for the sale
of scientific apparatus by one de-
arbment to another, the prOceeds
of the sale to be credited to the
budget account of the department
from which the apparatus is trans-
Departmnents having apparatus
wich is not In active use are advised
to send description thereof to the
University Chemistry Store, of which
Prof. R. J. Carney is director. The
Chemistry store headquarters are in
Room 223 Chemistry Building. An
effort will be made to sell the appara-
tus to other departments which are
likely to be able to use it. In some,
instances the apparatus may be sent
to the University Chemistry store on
consignment and if it is not sold
within a reasonable time, it will be
returned to the department from

which it was received. The object
of this arrangemenrt is to. promote
economy by reducing the amount of
unused apparatus._ It is hoped that
departments having such apparatus
will realize the advantage to them-
selves and to the University in avail-
ing themselves, of this opportunity.
Shirley W. Smith.

Topic Of Red
Cross Meeting
"The things that need to be done in
a disaster a7.e the things that are
done and must be done in normal
times," Albert Evans, one of the lead-
ers of the Northwest District of the
Red Cross, stressed yesterday before
a special one-day conference of the
local Washtenaw County chapter of
the organization.
The theme of the conference, held
at the Union and attracting commit-
tee heads from all over the County,
wvas "Disaster Preparedness and Re-
Mr. Evans emphasized that during
a disaster all the resources of the
community must be focused on one
end, "the quick relief of human suf-
fering and the return to normalcy."
He pointed out that it was the duty
of the heads of the local Red Cross
"to 'call the plays' and see that the
job is done, quickly and well."
"That job, however," he said, "can
only be accomplished by people famil-
iar with the resources of the com-
munity and it is, therefore ,the duty
of the local leaders of the Red Cross
to familiarize themselves with the re-
sources of their community."
Each of the local committees on
disaster preparedness and relief, then
listed their functions and prepara-
tions during an emergency.
The committee on transportation
and communication outlined the pro-
jected emergency 'tie-up' with ama-
teur radio operators and plans for a
central meeting place for the relay-
ing of information, such a meeting
place to be established Immediately
in an emergency.

If a group of high school students
are any criterion, the dancing couples
on campus are going to like "Doin'
the Diag."
The dance is one of the numbers
planned by Director Roy Hoyer and
his assistant, Bill Collins, for the
Union Opera, "Four out of Five."
During a rehearsal of the "pony
chorus" of the Opera some high school
students in one of Director Hoyer's
dancing classes saw the dance, liked
it and learned the steps.
Latest reports are that the Diag is
sweeping the social circles of the local
schools. Several couples have re-
registered in Mr. Hoyer's classes sim-
ply in order to learn the dance.
Members of the Opera chorus who
have taught the steps to their dates
report that it has attracted the in-
terest of other couples at the dances
in the League and Union. Another
"Big Apple" may be on the way.
If sufficient interest is manifested
in the dance, it will be demonstrated
at the weekend dances at the Union,
according to Robert Mix, '40, general
chairman of the Opera.
Doers of the Diag, Director Hoyer
explained, form a circle, as in La
Conga. The girl stands in front of
the boy, with both facing the same
direction. Both do exactly the same
steps, simplifying the instruction of
the dance. One of the most popular

satire of the "Eleanor Hop," which'
was popular when America first be-
came amazed at the First Lady's
varied activities. In the Opera, Jack
Silcott, Grad., as Mrs. Roosevelt, and
James Neilson, '40A, as a college stu-
dent, perform the dance.
