American Youth Act
To Oe Championed
By ASU's Lecturer
"Aid for the Youth of America by
Means of the American Youth Act,"
will be the topic of a lecture by Rich-I
ard Heikkinen, chairman of the State
Committee for the Passage of the
American Youth Act at 7:30 p.m. to-
morrow in the Union sponsored by
the American Student Union.
Proposed by Senator James E.
Murray of Montana, the Act is the
first proposal in 25 years which at-
tempts to solve the problem of the
unemployed youth between the ages
of 16 and 25 whose numbers are now
4,000,000, according to Yale Fore-
man, '42, chairman of the American
Youth Act Committee of the ASU.
Mr. Heikkinen, who is also a mem-
ber of the executive committee of
the United Automobile Workers, is
well qualified to present the youth
problem to the campus, Foreman
stated. At no time has the youth
situation been in such a deplorable
state, Foreman asserted, and it is of
special significance and interest to
students on this campus to hear Mr.
Heikkinen's talk. An informal dis-
cussion period will follow the speech.

Lyman Wins
Brewer And Roys Given
Second, Third Place
William W. Lyman, '39A, was an-
nounced as the winner of the George
G. Booth Fellowship yesterday by
Wells I. Bennett, Dean of the Col-
lege of Architecture and Design.
Entries submitted by the 11 com-
petitors in the contest are now on
exhibit in the third floor exhibition
room of the Architecture Building,
and can be seen daily from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m. until Saturday. The travel-
ing fellowship was donated by Booth
'to seniors or graduates of the archi-
tecture college, and previous to the
war the prize winner studied abroad.
Plans for a tour on this continent for
this year's winner are now being for-
Arthur Brewer was awarded sec-
ond place and Rufus H. Roys, '40A,
was given third place in the com-
petition. The problem of the con-
test* was the designing of a youth
hostel to be built in northern Michi-
gan. Dean Bennett commented, "Ly-
man's solution was a modern design
carried out in wood and stone, which
are the native materials of the region
where the hostel is to be located."
Jewish Relief Drive
Begins Tomorrow
Plans for the local United Jewish
Appeal, tomorrow to May 7, were for-
mulated Sunday at a meeting of the
Ann Arbor Jewish Committee. This
year's national quota of $23,000,000,
five millions larger than last year's,.
places a proportionately greater
burden on the local committee which
last year raised $4,000.
Money raised is divided among
the National Refugee Service, the
Joint Distribution Committee and
the United Palestine Appeal. Dr.
Isaac Rabinowitz heads the local
drive and has on his committee
Betty Steinhart, '40, heading the in-
dependent women; Jerome W. Meck-.
lenburger, '41E, and Irving Zeiger,
'41, representing independent men;
Robert L. Kann, '40, in charge of
fraternal organizations; Samuel
Grant, '40; Dr. Jacob Sacks; Mr.
Osias Zwerdling, and Prof. Kasmir
Fajans, advisor.

The three round tables held dur-
ing the afternoon composed one of
the most important parts of the Con-
ference, bringing graduates together
for presentation and discussion of
business problems of specific and im-
mediate importance, Dean Griffin
The session on marketing, empha-I
sizing new product development, he
explained, brought to light a striking
and encouraging harmony of opin-
ion. The idea was expressed that
American business, contrary to the
pessimistic view commonly held, isj
entering a new era of progress andI
Development Of New Products
While our geographical frontiers
have been expanded to what will
doubtless be their ultimate size, the
alumni emphasized the fact that
through the development of new pro-
ducts and new uses for old ones busi-
ness and employment should con-
tinue to grow. This, Dean Griffin
said, is a matter of importance to
everyone, from college student to
business man.
The general purpose of the Confer-
ences is to bring back to the School
men with practical experience for
the purpose of discussing questions
of policy and problems of business,
he continued, adding that the Con-
ference is never a reunion of class-
mates but a serious consideration
of business matters.
Through the annual Conference
with alumni, the professors of the
School are able to obtain realistic
contacts with conditions in the busi-
ness world, he pointed out, adding
that many professors are able to ob-
tain practical materials for teach-
