Struggle For Dominance
Is Named As-Fact o r
ResponsibleFor Change
The seemingly endless struggle for
dominance among manufacturers,
wholesalers and retailers has caused
several recent changes inthe work-
,ings, of the economy of this nation,
Dr. Nathaniel H. .iEngle, assistant di-
rector of the Bureau of Foreign and
Domestic Commerce, said in an ad-.
dress on "Changing Channels of
Distribution" yesterday in the Rack-
1 ham Amphitheatre.
..Manufacturers have experienced
an increase in the size and strength
of their concerns, Doctor Engle ex-
plained, tending toward direct dis-
tribution of their products to retail-
iAag agencies,. This direct distribu-
tion policy, he said, has caused the
wholesalers, alone of the three
groups, to lose ground. They still
have enough :business to continue,
though, he pointed out, and it ap-
pears that their place will be main-
tained for some time.
J. Knox Is Chosen
Forestry President
Final outcome of the long contest-
ed senior forestry election was an-
nounced last night by Carl Wheeler,
'40E, with James Knox of Green
Bay, Wis., being selected president
of the class, The tie between Knox
and Oscar Traczewitz, for the presi-
dential position existed as a result of
their mutual;non consent to a chance
selection after they had been tied
.up in the first election.
. Knox polled 22 votes in yester-
day's election held in the Natural
Science Building, while Traczewitz
received 15. The election was under
the charge of Peter Brown ,'41E, of
the Union executive staff. Elec-
tions were under the supervision of
the Men's,. Committee, of which
,Wheeler is the head.

er's Party, will speak at 8 p.m. today

the Young Socialist League, Larry
Tenenberg, '42, secretary, announced

berg said. Everyone interested is

Modern Typesetter
AddedTo oDaily Shop
Gone from The Daily's composing
room is the glamour of the old-style
hand-set headline-in its place a
sleek, efficient Ludlow type casting
machine, the latest addition to The
Daily's expanding print shop, is per-,
forming the tedious task of setting
the larger news headlines and ad-
vertising display lines.
An engineer's dream and a de-
signer's nightmare, the new contrap-
tion is being used for the first time
in this issue.of The Daily.
Chief application of the machine
will be in casting the larger head-
lines which are. not available on
the linotype machines. Advantages
gained are the unlimited type sup-
ply made available, the greater ease
of handling and composition and the
added feature .that each issue will
contain new type faces.
Cadets Sought
By Air Corps
Flying Board To Convene
Here For Five Days.
As part of an extensive program
to strengthen the national peace-
time defense mechanism of the
United States, a Flying Cadet Board
will convene at the.University to-
morrow through Dec. 5 to accept
applications from and examine for
fitness eligible students who wish
to enter the Army Air Corps.
Although no definite announce-
ment has as yet been made as to the
time and place of the Board's meet-
ings according to the ROTC offices
it is probable that the Board will'
meet at the ROTC Building from 9
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.
Applicants must be unmarried
male citizens of the United States
and in good physical condition.
While minimum educational re-
quirements for selection as a flying
cadet call for only two years of col-
lege, the Board recommends that
only senior students apply for exam-
ination. Capt. A. R. Springer of
Selfridge Field who released the an-
nouncement of the Board's visit some
time ago indicated that this recom-
mendation is intended to discourage
those students who might leave
school for the sole purpose of join-
ing the air force.
Hillel Will Discuss Plans
The Hillel Players will hold a
meeting at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at the

,nounced, will be given.

organization's designer.
First of all, she explained, action
in the play takes place at times rang-
ing from 1750 to the present. That
fact creates the problem of costum-
ing by period, she said.
Secondly, 83 actors will actually
play 186 roles, she observed. Each
actor takes at least two parts, and
some even seven or eight, she ex-
plained. (For example, the man who

News reporters, bowery bums and
little children, among many others,
must be costumed, she explained.
When we consult style books of any
period, she commented, we see
fashion plates, the latest style. The
chief costuming problem, therefore,
lies in translating these "up-to-the-
minute" fashions into clothes which
would naturally be worn by those liv-
ing in tenements, she concluded.

the pamphlets and reports that net-

licity of all types, scripts, of sustain-

Prof. Dow
Prof. William G. Dow of the elec-q
trical engineering department took a
bus driver's holiday this summer
when he accepted a position with the
Bell Telephone Laboratories, Incor-
porated, of New York City, to work
with dial switching -apparatus.
In the employment of the Labora-
tories the professor reported 50
Michigan men, including a number
in responsible executive positions. A.
B. Clark, '11, is director of transmis-
sion development, which is one of the
four major divisions of the Labora-.
tories. H. S. Sheppard, formerly of'
the electrical factory here, has charge
of public relations work, which in-
volves cooperation with the Federal,.
Communications Commission on rates,
and contracts. R. D. Parker, also at
former electrical faculty member, is.
in charge of development of tele-
graph facilities. Lyman Morehouse,
BSEE, in 1897, AM in 1904, and,
awarded an honorary degree-in 1934,,
has for the past several years been,
representing interests of the Bell
Company in London.
Professor Dow feels that associa-
tions :such as the one he had with
the Laboratories aid materially in
the maintenance of proper coopera-
tion between industry and engineer-
ing education.

As'an aid primarily to the small
business man, the Department of
Commerce is canvassing the com-
merce and business administration
schools of the nation on the subject
of a national business research serv-
ice, Dr. Nathaniel H. Engle, assistant
director Of the' Bureau of Foreign
and Domestic Commerce, said yes-
The service, as now planned, he
continued, will serve as a clearing
ho.use for information and .projects
having to do with business re-
search. Such a bureau, Doctor
angle explained, would work in close
cooperation with university business
research, departments, schools of
business ad'ministration and econom-
*e s departments.
Elimination of duplication and
waste effort, resulting in more effi-
cient research and handling of its
results, will be encouraged by the
work of a national bureau, Doctor
Engle pointed out. The bureau will
probably issue a regular publication,
summarizing the results of research
projects and telling where copies of
these results may be obtained, he
.ontinued. Such publications, he

I26 slATES

said, will be of great service to busi-
ness men, research workers and stu-
dents of business administration.
Another reason for the establish-
ment of a national clearing house for
information dealing with business
problems, Doctor Engle emphasized,,
is the dose relationship it will fos-'
ter between the Department of Com-"
merce and state agencies for re-
.search. It is assumed, he continued,
that university and college research
workers will be able to get the most
complete and accurate information
possible about local conditions be-
cause of their close relationship with
local business men.
Some kind of stimulus to business
and business methods is vitally nec-
essary in America today, he pointed
out, as the annual per capita income
of the country is declining. The
bureau planned by the Department
of Commerce should be such a stim-
ulus, tAking advantage of our per-
fected methods of business research
and presenting information in a way
likely to benefit small business, a
field which is now losing the best
men to big business which can afford
to pay greater wages, Doctor Engle
