This Associated Press map shows the course of Russia's invasion of
Finland-an invasion by land, sea, and air. Soviet planes bombed Hel-
sinki, the Finnish capital and a portion of the city was reported in
flames. The port of Viipuri (Viborg), about 65 miles from the Soviet
frontier, was also bombed. As Russian artillery pounded Terijoki, Soviet
troops crossed the border north of Leningrad. Suojaervi, strategic Finn
defense area, and the "fishermen's peninsula" were cut off.

Student builds Auto Estimated
To Travel At 110-120 M.P.H.

By PAUL CHANDLER
A University student who began
to tinker with automobiles while he
was in grade school was riding
around in Ann Arbor this week in
a $100 homemade car that has so
much power that he is still afraid
to try it out at full throttle.
The college lad is 23-year-old Dan
Boehm, '41E, who built the auto-
mobile during his spare time last
summer. It is modern in design,
super streamlined, and the engine
mounted in the middle. So far there
is only the chassis and motor to ex-
hibit, but the body will be mounted
during the next few months.
Constructed Car Here
Boehm constructed the car in the
automobile laboratory of the Uni-
versity engineering college. It has
a special cooling system, with the
radiator in the front, a remote con-
trol gear shift, and a vacuum clutch'
which works off the intake man-
fold. The body, which will be built
of special wood and fabric construc-

tion, will stand about 45 inches from
the ground, compared to 65 inches
on the average standard passenger
automobile.
The 85 horsepower engine will
move the low-slung car at a speed
of 110-120 miles per hour, the builder
estimates, but he is afraid to drive
it that fast. "The steering is not so
good when I am going fast," he ex-
plains, "so I'm going to wait until
I tighten her up a bit, before she
gets any more trials."
Car Building is Hobby
Designing and building automo-
biles has been a hobby of Boehm's
for many years. He and his younger
brother, Frank, put together a couple
of homemade miniature autos, com-
plete with gasoline engines, while'
Dan was still in hfgh school. Dur-
in' the past two years they have de-
signedthree "soap-box" racers so
that Frank could compete in the
annual Ann Arbor derbies.
The $100 was spent for old auto-
mobile parts. The radiator, chassis,
motor, and seats are all taken from
different cast-off cars. Besides the
cash, the 23-year-old student claims
that he has contributed "a million
dollars worth of work."
The car has a wheel base of 123
inches, and is equipped with large
wheels and oversize balloon tires. It
weighs 2,350 pounds. The motor
drives the rear wheels by means of
a short Hotchkiss drive. Designed
primarily as a streamlined speedster,
it has seats for only two persons.
CallanNamed
Company Head
BeCoiues Vice - President
Of Borden Firm
Climaxing a long business career,
William Callan, '01, was last week
elected vice-president of the Borden
Company of New York City.
Born in Philadelphia in 1878, Mr.
Callan was schooled in Detroit and
entered the chemical field after re-
ceiving his A.B. degree from the
University.
After serving with several chemi-
.-al firms, Mr. Callan secured a posi-
tion with the Borden Company in
1927 and later became president of
two units of the firm-the Casein
Company of America and the Na-
tional Milk Sugar Manufacturing
Co.
Mr. Callan was president for two
terms, in 1937 and 1938, of the
Chemists' Club, and is a member
of the Finance Committee of the
American Chemical Society.

Zion Lutheran Church: Services at
10:30 a.m. Rev. E. Stellhorn will de-
liver the sermon.

Tenor To Sing
.before Packed
House Monday
A capacity crowd will greet Jussi
Bjoerling, Swedish tenor, in the
fifth concert of the Choral Union
Series at 8:30 p.m. Monday, Dr.
Charles A. Sink, president of the
University Musical1Society predicted
yesterday.
Some tickets are still available,
however, at the School of Music,
he added.
Bjoerling'sprogram which was re-
leased yesterday includes only one
operatic aria-"O Paradiso" from
Meyerbeer's "L'Africane"-although
the tenor has an operatic repertoire
of 54 roles. The rest of the program
includes songs by Beethoven, Schu-
bert, Richard Strauss, Emil Sjorgran,
Sibelius, Frederic Clay, Stephen
Foster and Frank LaForge.
Since his Metropoiltan Opera de-
but as Rudolpho in Puccini's "La
Boheme," Nov. 24, 1938, Bjoerling
has gained nation-wide fame. "Peer-
less in his sphere" . . . "Fine
phrasing" . . . "magnificent high
C's have been some of the phrases
used by enthusiastic music critics."
Although only 27 years old, he is
a veteran singer. He made his
operatic debut at the age of 19 in
the Royal Opera House in Stock-
holm, and has been singing the tenor
roles in Prague Vienna, Dresden and
the United States ever since.
Rabbi Heller To Speak
At Hillel Reform Service

A reception for Dr. Heller will be
held at 3 p.m. in the Foundation and
a dinner will be held for him in the
