Francis Danovich Wii Feature
Paul Bunyan Stories In Murals

* * *


Realizing the popular appeal that
Paul Bunyan has for all ages, Fran-
cis Danovich has chosen the story
of this fictitious hero and prophet
of foresters ,as the subject for his
murals in the Childrens' Waiting
Room of the New Dental School.
Throughrthetalent and imagina-
tion of Francis Danovich, former
Detroit Cass Technical High stu-
dent and scholarship student at
Cranbrook, Paul Bunyan's story is
being depicted through the Federal
Art Project of the Works Progress
Ancient Process Used
Danovich revealed that he is put-
ting the story of the Master Inventor,
Orator, Historian, and Logger into
color and shape through the use of
egg tempera, a substance first used
by the ancients. Tempera preceded
oil paint and until Oil painting's
discovery was used exclusively by the
old masters, he explained. He con-
tinued by describing egg gtempera as
a mixture of whole egg and powdered
earth and mineral colors whose qual-
ities of adherence and durability
have been evidenced in works that
remain virtually intact from several
years back, and which in Danovich's
belief "will probably live as long as
the New Dental School."
Danovich has attempted to cap-
ture the essence of the virility and
,importance of the industrycreated
by the great hero whose travels in
Canada and North America have giv-
en birth to many legends and imag-
inary accounts of different geo-
graphical phenomena.
Story Highlights Reflected
Danovich reflects the highlights of
the story in his massive figures and
keynote incidents. The winter of
the strange blue snow will be warmly
recognized by Paul Bunyan readers.

life of the lumberjacks; baskets of

General Sale
Of Senior Ball
Tickets To Start
Tickets for Senior Ball will be put
on general sale from 10 a.m. to noon
today, at the transportation desk in
the Union, in order to give the un-
derclassmen and 'graduates a look at
the last' orgies of the graduating
For the past three days, the sale
has been limited to seniors; about
300 tickets remain for sale, accord-
ing to Bill Elmer, '41, who is in
charge of publicity for the dance.
If, after this morning's ticket sale,
any tickets remain, the sale will re-
open from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. The
number to be sold is limited, so those
expecting, to get tickets should plan
to obtain them early in the day.
Since the committee is planning
to have a large outdoor dance floor
set up behind the Intramural Build-
ing, more couples can be accommo-
dated at this dance than at, last,
year's Senior Ball, or at J-Hop. Also
there will be no booths around the
main dance floor, which will make
more floor space.
Glenn Miller, top-flight band
leader in the estimation of college
students of the nation, will play for
the dance, which will be held from
10 p.m. to 3 a.m., Friday, June 20.
New singing attraction of the band
is Paula Kelley; Ray Eberle, who
has been connected with Miller for
some time, will sing the straight
vocals, while novelty numbers are
carried by "Tex" Beneke.

Ann Arbor will play hostess to one
of the ten best dressed women in
America when Ilka Chase, distin-
guished star of stage, screen and ra-
dio, arrives here May 27 to appear in
"Skylark," a sophisticated comedy.
The daughter of Edna Woolman
Chase, Editor of a popular women's
fashion magazine, Miss Chase has
kept in sonstant touch with the ele-
ments of smartness and now takes her
place- among the nation's foremost
fashion delebrities. As a matter of
fact, she has also written numerous
articles depicting the latest styles
and modes for fashion magazines.
Is Commentator
Miss Chase, whose charming voice
is known to every movie-goer and
radio-listener, is the amusing com-
mcntator for Vyvyan Donner's Tech-
-ilcolor Fashion Forecasts and has
recently made a great hit in radio
as hostess on the 'Luncheon At The
Waldorf," radio program.
During this program before 50 or
60 celebrated luncheon guests, Miss
Chase acts as }mistress of ceremony
and principle speaker for the coast to
coast broadcast. She writes the script,
selects the guests, and conducts the
entire program. While usually in a
light, satirical vein, her talks some-
times become thoughtful and a ser-
ious broadcast results.
Likes Theatre Best
Though she enjoys writing and ap-
pearing in movies, she cares most for
the theatre and has played in a suc-
School Of Education
Will Sponsor Third
Annual Picnic Today
The third in the now well-estab-
lished annual picnic sponsored by
the School of Education will take
place today with both -students and
faculty of the school participating.
June Finkbeiner, '41, chairman of
the Student-Faculty Relations Com-
mittee, emphasizes the fact that
both Education students and Liter-
ary College students who have classes
in the Education School are invited
to attend.
The picnickers will meet at 4:30
p.m. today in front of the Rackham
Building and from there will pro-
ceed to the picnic grounds.
All who plan to attend should
bring their own lunch, Miss Fink-
beiner continues.


to take an active interest in politics.

Wheeeee goes the whistle every
Saturday noon sounding a finis note
to the week's activitis on the campus.
For students it's the signal to whiz
out of class and rush to the dining
This siren, which startles fresh-
men into thinking the men from
Mars have arrived, officially means
that the University is clbsed for thes
week. It has an added purpose in
that it is a practice session insuring
that the whistle is in good condition
should we need it for a fire alarm,
said I. W. Treuttner, maintenance
inspector for the Building and
Grounds Department.
Powerhouse Is Location
Located in the University Power
House on Huron and Washington
streets, this whistle has never been
found to be out of order, Treuttner
observed, since it was installed 12,
years ago.
The siren, which has a musical
lilt to it, is able to be heard three or
four miles from the campus if the
weather is favorable, Treuttner
pointed out.
"Whenever there is a large fire
on University property on the cam-
pus or on outlying land, the siren is
blown. There is a code used in the
blowing of the whistle to denote
where the blaze is," he continued.
For fire purposes, the whistle noti-
fies the B&G crew that they are
needed,and they knowtfrom 'the code
on what part of campus the trouble
is, he emphasized. The campus has
its own fire equipment to serve the
Fire Department Notified
The Ann Arbor city fire depart-
nent is notified before the fire whis-
tle is blown so that they may send
their assistance, also. Mr. Treuttner
said the siren is blown only in cases
of serious fires and that the last
time it shrilled for help was for the
blaze in the Lawyers Club basement
Feb. 24.+
This expert on the University fire

whistle explained that one short
blast of the siren indicates that
there is a blaze on the north side of
campus while two short blasts, close
together, means trouble on the east
side. That aid 'is needed on the
south and west sides of campus is
signified by three and four short
blasts, respectively.
Blasts Mean Blazes '
The separation of two short blastsI
points out a° fire in the center of
campus and three separated short
blows means a blaze in North Hall
or the Store House. Four short sep-
arated blasts sends the B&G crews
to the University Hospital.
One long shrill on Saturday noon?
Why, that means we're through for
the week and we close the books.
Weekend Of Parties
Planned For'Mothers
Mother isn't going to get just a
half-dozen roses and a pound box
of peanut brittle, come Mothers' Day
this year; this year the Michigan stu-
dents are bringing Mother to the
campus for a real weekend dedicated
to enjoyment.
Dormitories, sororities, fraternities,
and league houses are all entering in
the spirit of the weekend's dedication
to Maw, and Maw, if she has any-
thing to say about it, will be whisked
from May Festival to dinner to break-
fast to tea.
Alpha Gamma Delta, Chi Omega,
and Phi Sigma Sigma have invited
parents for the Mother's Day week-
end including both mothers and fa-
thers in the invitation.
Tomorrow, Mother's Day dinner
will, be held by Alpha Tau Omega
and by Alpha Epsilon Phi at their
Chapter Houses, and byeDelta Tau
Delaat< the Allenel Hotel.
Beta Theta Pi, Chi Phi, Sigma
Phi Epsilon ,and Theta Delta Chi
have dedicated the weekend to Moth-
er's Day, celebrating with everything
from picnics to formal banquets.

Whistle Marking End Of Week'
Also Serves Duty As Fire Siren,

with playsuits for action,

It started

spread to formals for glamor, and
now is taking over the lounging field;
the bare midriff outfit will provide
cool leisure hours on hot summer
This gay model, given a tropical
aspect by its brilliant splashy print,
acquires its smartness and coolness
both with its thin silk material and
bare midriff mode. The trousers are
tailored neatly around the waist and
hips to form a smooth line to the
leg, where they flare out to give
ample room for free action, and soft
folds for more attraction.
The short blouse is in opposition to'
the decollete midriff, as puritanical
sleeves and a high back give a deceiv-
ing cover-up effect.
Easy to pack for vacation trips, the
light silk will fold up into "no space
at all" to make traveling easier.
Although the outfit is designed pri-
marily for summer lounging, it can
serve double duty by acting as com-
fortable study attire during exams.
