Radio Station
To Be Sought
By Local Men
Chamber Of Commerce
To Seek Contributions
For Proposed Measure
Earl H. Cress, president of the
Chamber of Commerce ,announced
yesterday that a movement to obtain
a radio broadcasting station for Ann
Arbor, preferably financed by local
capital, has been started by the
Chamber of Commerce.
Cress was authorized to appoint
a committee to seek interested local
persons for the establishment of the
station, but said that outside groups
would receive fair consideration from
the chamber.
Several out-of-town groups have
been reported seeking a license from
the Federal Communications Com-
mission for erection of a broadcast-
ing unit in the city.
ThedChamber of Commerce, Cress
pointed out, is primarily interested
in getting the best possible setup for
a station.

New evidence in the coroner's
inquest on the murder and burn-

man whose body was found in a
dump near Manchester, revealed
that four fires were seen on the
dump on four different days after
Miss Briggs disappeared from her
mother's home in Manchester.
The inquest was postponed until
next Tuesday to await the re-
port of Dr. Robert J. Parsons, Uni-
versity Hospital pathologist, who is
making a post mortem examination
of the body.

Thomas 'Talk
Will $e Given
HMere On W1 ar
A former Presbyterian minister in
East Harlem and four times a candi-
date for President, Norman Thomas
will speak here at 8:15 p.m. Wed-
nesday, May 28, in the Rackham
Amphitheatre. In his talk, sponsored
by the Michigan Anti-War Commit-
tee, Thomas will present "A Demo-
cratic Answer to War and Fascism."
The Ann Arbor stop on his present
lecture tour will mark Thomas's sec-
ond appearance here of the current
school year. On October 15, he ad-
dressed the Michigan Forum on"But-
ter and Arms."
Thomas has long been a dominant
figure in liberal circles. An opponent
of America's entrance into World
War I, he became a member of the
American Union against Militarism
in 1918 and Joined the Socialist
Party soon after.
Before his first presidential can-
didacy in 1928, Thomas had become
an associate editor of the Nation in
1921 and the director of the League
for Industrial Democracy.
Heading the Socialist ticket in '32,
'36, and '40, Thomas has been a lead-
er in the current anti-war movement
and the struggle for civil liberties.
In this connection he has led the
fight against Mayor Frank Hague and
was once forcibly ejected from Jer-
sey City for attemptihg an address
in Journal Square.

Thomas graduated from Prince-
ton in 1905, and has written many
books expressing his viewpoint, in-
cluding "As I See It," and "America's
Way Out - A Program for Demo-

Effect On Men In Each College

no longer the depression but the draft,
which hangs over the head of every
male student over 21, and, if the draft
age should be lowered, every one over!
Greatest effect will be in the grad-f
uate schools, where most of the stu-
dents are over the present selective

should be lowered to 18, according

It is anticipated that any decrease
