the day that loosed the new war upon
the southeast:
"Soldiers of the southeast front:
Since early this morning, the German
people are at war with the Belgrade
governments of intrigue. We shall
lay down arms only when this band of
ruffians has been definitely and
empatically eliminated, and the last
Briton has left this part 'of the Eur-

Then the proclamation went on
to say that those in the Balkans
must "thank Britain'' for their trou-

Will Present
U.S. Folk Airs
Outstanding collector of American
folk music, John Jacob Niles, will
bring a program of native American
songs to the Lydia Mendelssohn The-
atre Tuesday.
Many of the songs Niles will pre-
sent are from the mountains of the
South and have been preserved by
descendants of early English, Scotch,
Welsh and Irish settlers. Because of
the inaccessibility of the region, the
mountaineers' culture has changed
little since the 17th and 18th cen-
turies, and the fundamental spirit
of early English music remains in
their music.
Niles, a tenor, has a trained voice,
and formerly sang with the Cincin-
nati Opera Company, but he soon
turned to folk music. He has recorded
an album of thi music and has con-
tributed articles on it to various mu-
sic publications.
Niles comes here with recommen-
gation of Dean Alice Lloyd, who says
of him, "Mr. Niles' high tenor voice
with Dulcimer accompaniments is
the perfect expression of the haunt-

ing music which he has brought to
Tickets are now selling at the Lydia
Mendelssohn box office for 75 -and

state-wide attention is being attrac-
ted by the contest for superintendent
of public instruction, and for posi-
tions on the State Board of Edu-
The non-partisan contests on the
judicial ticket have attracted less at-
tention, probably due to the fact that
Circuit Judge George W. Sample is

Degree Program For Honors
Is Given From Student's Angle

The Degree Program for Honors
in Liberal Arts gives a new slant
to Michigan education. It means that
education is now being given -from
the student's angle.
Briefly, the honors program is a
sytem whereby a student can work
under a tutor, in a small group or
individually, on a two-year study of
a field of special interest to him.
This system was instituted in the
College of Literature, Science and the
Arts in September, 1939, for a trial
period of five years before it was
adopted, as a permanent part of
the educational opportunities offer-
ed here. There is a provision that
not more than 100 students shall be
enrolled in the program at any one
At present, there are 38 students
both juniors and seniors, working
under this system. These students
Employees Asked
1To Tell Complaints
To Student Senate
Any working student who feels that
he has a just grievance against his
employer has been urged by Robert
Krause. head of the Student Senate's
labor survey, to notify his group,
The Student Senate is conducting
this ,irvey in cooperation with other
leading campus organizations. Most
of the investigation has been com-
pleted and the results will be pub-
lished after vacation.
Krause explained that his group
may be notified by sending a letter
to him at 1108 Hill Street. He stress-
ed the fact that no names of employ-
ers or employes will be publicized.
The purpose of the survey, accord-
ing to those directing it, will be to
determine the facts and then on the
basis of these facts decide on proper
action. The inquiry has the backing
of the Dean of Students' office.

Today, Tomorrow

"We must encourage standardiza-
tion of conisumer goods, so that the
consumer can choose intelligently in
the open market," Dr. Irma H. Gross,
Michigan State College home econ-
omist, told members of the "Consum-
er Problems" round table yesterday.
This discussion, as part of the Thir-
teenth Annual School of Business
Administration Alumni Conference,
was arranged by Mrs. Martha Saw-
yer, of the business administration
school. It marked the first time this
round table, was included in the
Alumni Conference.
Consumers can't see, smell, touch'
or use any of the old methods of
choosing goods, Dr. Gross said, be-
cause of the cellophane wrappers
and because of canned goods and'
boxed goods. While this modern
method assures sanitation, the con-
sumer has no way of telling just
what he's getting.
Experts Certain
In the case of refrigerators, radios
and automobiles, Dr. Gross pointed
out, it takes an expert to be certain
of what he's getting. Even experts
admit that they can't be sure of
what they're getting without labor-
atory tests.
Although under the Food and Drug
Act, manufacturers are required to
list the ingredients, Dr. Gross de-
clared, modern methods of labelling
or grading have not been standard-
ized. A consumer, ignorant of the
grading system used, might ask for
a "choice" piece of meat. Actually,
however, she said, "choice" is a third
rate classification, ,following "super-
prime" nd "prime." The same holds!

true for potatoes; "U.S. 1" is. the
.third grade potato: "fancy" and "ex-
tra" are both better grades.
Dr. Gross listed several Govern-
ment measures which are designed
to aid the consumer and also named
several trade and professional groups
which issue publications for the con-
sumer's benefit. There are also sev-
eral self-designated groups, Dr. Gross
said, which publish regular bulletins
containing descriptions of a com-
modity in general or trade names'
in particular.
Consumer Wants
What the consumer wants more
than anything else, Dr. dross em-
phasized, is acombination of grading
and labelling. This methdd, called
'informative labelling," uses descrip-
tive words which are not superlative
adjectives, but which describe inher-
ent properties of the commodity of-
fered for sale. When this is accom-
plished, she said, the consumer can
make sure he's making his Udollar
