Debaters To End Season
ARainst Northwe ste ' n
Michigan varsity debaters will fin-
ish their home season when they
meet a Northwestern University
squad in a non-decision contest at
8 p.m. Thursday in the North Lounge
of the Union.
The discussion will be on railroad
ownership, Arthur Secord, coach of
men debaters, announced yesterday.
Members of the Michigan squadj
who will speak on the affirmative'
side in this debate have not been
chosen as yet. An open forum dis-
cussion will follow the debate.
Karl Olson, '40, and R. Erwin Bow-
ers, '42, met Illinois in a non-deci-
sion contest here last Thursday.
Previously, Arthur Biggins, ''42, and
William Muehl, '41, met Illinois and

Halstead Cites
Hos ig Play's
LocalAngles
Despite the fact that Arthur Arent
wrote ". . one third of a nation
." to portray the housing prob-
lem in large cities, a specific Ann
Arbor angle has been added in cer-
tain places for Play Production's
forthcoming presentation, Prof. Wil-
am P. Halstead of the speech de-
partment; director of the play, an-
nounced yesterday.
(". . . one tnird of a nation
will be given Wednesday through
Saturday in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre. The theatre box office
opens at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow.)
Thp dramatization of this serious
housing problem is the primary ir-
terest of the play, Professor Hal-
stead, added. Whatever dramatic
plot thereis, he explained, ,merely
constitutes the means of putting the
problem across. No 'conscious ,at
tempt is made to actually tell a story,
he commented.
One of the principal reasons Play'
Production chose this play, Profes-
sor Halstead observed, is that stu-
dents are so interested in the problem
it presents. This modern problem,
presented with so much modern ap-
peal, proved popular for a long time
even with blase Brodway audiences,
he added.
Humor and fact are stressed
througliout ". . . one third of a na-
tion ...". Professor Halstead said.
The humor is, for the most part, izdii-
ic, he explained, and is derived fornm
a very scrious problem withotlosing
sight of that problem.

Dr Charles "A. Fisher, director of
the University Extension Service,
said yesterday that 'it is "still too
early" to predict how much the work
of the organization will expand in
Detroit as the result of the new facil-
ities which will be offered by the
$1,500,000 Horace H. Rackham'Me-
morial Building.
"It will probably mean an increase
in the'number of students taking
work, and will offer more courses
for study accordingly,"' Dr. Fisher
said, "but we have made no plans
yet."
Established in 1914, the Detroit
branch of the Extension Service now
gives instruction to about 3,300 stu-
dents annually. Members of the
University faculty conduct 55 courses
each semester.
