"Valuation of Real Estate in Rela-'
tion to Mortgage Lending" will be
the topic of an address by Frederick
M. Babcock, assistant director of the
Federal Housing Administration, be-
fore a convocation of the School of
Business Administration at 4 p.m. to-
day in the Rackham Amphitheatre.
Babcock's address should be of in-
terest to all students and members
of the faculty, as he.will probably ex-
plain the action of the FHA in rela-
tion to real estate valuation as well as
giving valuable information about
general valuation, Prof. R. U. Rat-
cliffe of the School of Business Ad-
niinistration said yesterday.
A case study will be used to illus-
trate the lecture this afternoon by
Babcock, who was in charge of the
development of a system of mortgage
risk rating used in connection with
mortgage insurance. Babcock, who
worked as a research associate in the
Bureau of Business Research of the
University in 1931, is the author of
"Valuation of Real Estate," the lead-
ing textbook on the subject, Profes-
sor Ratcliffe added.

A 28-year-old woman is now sitting
in solitary confinement in a dark and
chilly Detroit cell; 11 other men are
allegedly receiving cruel treatment
in jail and are being held under ex-
treme bail limitations-all of them
arrested under an antiquated law of
These were the charges made in
Ann Arbor yesterday by Milton N.
Kemnitz, secretary of the Michigan
Civil Rights Federation, who claims
that the capture of .these persons
was ordered by the Federal Bureau of
Investigation, and indicates a trend
that perils the personal liberties of
every citizen in the United States.
Federal officers arrested the twelve
persons last week on a charge that
they were recruiting soldiers for a
foreign power-in this case the Loyal-.
ist government of Spain, while she
was still a nominal republic.
According to Kemnitz, the prisoners
were captured in an unusual raid at
five o'clock last Tuesday morning,
with federal agents battering down
doors and ransacking rooms. The
arrested persons were held incom-
municade until the next afternoon;
they were handcuffed and chained
together, and were allowed only a
few minutes in which to consult their
lawyer. One of the victims was a
woman, and she is now living in a
cell "so cold she must wear her coat,"
and is allowed to speak to no one
except her lawyer, Kemnitz said. The
men were sent to the federal prison
at Milan, Mich.
Federal officers based the arrest
on information obtained through the
investigations of the Dies Committee
a year ago. Kemnitz and the Civil
Liberties Union have objected on the
grounds that recruiting for Finland3
is going on today with no police in-
terference and that the law allegedly
violated was passed in 1818 to avoid
impressment of American mariners
by Great Britain.

Double Feature Program
To Open Two-Day Run
As Art Cinema Show
The Art Cinema League opens its
second semester season with its first
double-feature presentation, a two-
day showing. Friday and Saturday,
in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre of
World Picture's "Marseillaise" and
a documentary film, "The City."
Tickets for the program, which
will begin at 8:15 p.m. and run for
almost two hours, will go on sale at
10 a.m. Thursday at the Lydia Men-
Dynamic story of the French Revo-
lution starring the French people,
"Marseillaise," is the first picture
inade il France of the Revolution,
and was financed by popular sub-
scription. In it, attempt has been
made by Jean Renoir, director of the
prize-winning film of 1939, "Grand
Illusion," to get away from the cine-
matic cliches which formerly rep-
resented the French Revolution on
the screen: the guillotine, the terror,
the execution of the King and Queen,
etc. Renoir has rather concerned
himself with the men who fought in
the Revolution to achieve "liberty,
equality and fraternity,"
Hint of his success in this may be
obtained from Johannes Steel's radio
review of the film. Mr. Steel, form-
er editor of the New York Post and
author of "The Second World War,"
pointed out "the tragic analogy (oif
the film) to the recent history of
"There, too," he said, "the peas-
ants, the burghers, the people fought
for freedom against the enemies from
within and without ... The only dif-
ference is, in Spain, a year ago the
people lost. In France a century and
a half ago, the people won. That is
why they have something to defend
"The City," 38 minutes of docu-
mentary film which enjoyed long
success at the New York World's Fair,
has been acclaimed by critics as an
ideal commentary of city and rural
life. Typical of the comment is
Archer Winsten's review in the New
York Post: "It's absolutely magnifi-
cent, a true work of cinematic art in
conception, photography and cut-
ting, as well as uproariously funny.

Federal Income Tax: The Collector
of Internal Revenue, Michigan Dis-
trict, advises that:
1. Deductions made by the Uni-
versity from salaries for the purpose,
of creating old age retirement pen-
sions or annuities are not deductible
by the individual in arriving at tax-;
able net income.
2. Additional contributions by the
University for the purchase of old age
pensions do not affect the individual's
income tax returns until such time as
he retires and begins to receive the
pension. Shirley W. Smith
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 furnished 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 roportionate reduction in the
amount reported may be made.
