Engine Seniors
To Hold Picnic
Af ter Exams
Inter-Departmental Ganes
Will Be Main Events
Wednesday, June 18
Senior engineering students will
close their college social careers with
a class picnic Wednesday, June 19,
on the island.
Taking advantage of the fact that,
final examinations will be behind
them at that time, the men of the en-
gineering college report that the pic-
nic this year will be bigger and better
than ever before.[
Featured at the fun-fest will be in-
ter-departmental baseball games,
picnic chairman Seymour Furbush,
has announced. Only two games
have been scheduled as yet, but addi-
tional arrangements may be made by
calling Furbush.
Fighting against the chemical en-
gneering team under Captain Iob-
ert McCamey will be a group of elec-
trical engineers under co-captains
Steve Gawura and Richard White.
Baseball-minded aeronautical engin-
eers will take on Bill Vollmer and his
mechanical engineering team.
Free to all those who have paid
their class dues in full, the picnic
may also be attended by ticket, which
may be obtained from Furbush or
from Harold Britton. Dues, if not
now paid in full, may be paid up in-
stead of buying a ticket..
Reported ready to draw up their
lineups, team captains request that[
any men in their respective depart-
ments wishing to play turn in their[
names as soon as possible.'
Attending engineers will meet in
front of the East Engineering Build-
ing, at 2:30 p.m. to travel in a body
to the Island, where the baseball
games will get under way at 3 p.m.
Assisting Furbush as chairman of
the picnic committee will be Charles
Tieman. As usual, an ample supply
of refreshments will be provided, it
was announced.
Grain Carrier Is Located
LUJDINGTON, June 7. -(P),- The
stern of the grain carrier Anna C.
Minch, lost in the Armistice Day
storm with all hands, was found by
the government survey ship Peary
Saturday south of Ludington.

Major Airlines
Will Not Use
The Ann Arbor airport will never
be used as a scheduled landing field
stop by the major airlines, at least
in its present condition, Prof. William
S. Housel of the highway engineer-
ing department declared yesterday in
an interview.
Professor Housel, one of the best
informed men in the country in the
field of airport runways, said that
the present field, with its underlying
layers of peat and other soft, poor
quality soil, would not bear the heavy
traffic which commercial service
would impose upon it.
With respect to this statement, it
will be recalled that a few weeks
ago several Army pursuit planes, of
much lighter weight than transport
ships, were prevented from landing
at the field when one of their sister
ships became stuck in the mud after
leaving the runway to avoid another
landing plane.
When asked whether it would be,
preferable to improve the present
field or seek a new one, Professor
Housel declared that a new site would
be the best answer. It would cost
approximately $50,000 more per run-
way to replace the existing runways
with adequate ones than to build
new runways on a field with suitable
The additional cost of replacing
the runways would be greater than
the value of all the buildings at the
present field.,
Lear Calls Army
'G reates t Fi hter
June 7.-(IP)-Lieutenant General Ben
Lear, a soldier 43 years, said today
the new United States soldier has,
the "qualifications necessary to be-
come the world's greatest fighting
man, and given the equipment and the
necessity for action he will be that."
In an interview the Second Army
commander stressed the need for mass
maneuvers such as 55,000 men are
carrying out in central Tennessee
through this month. The field exer-
cises began Monday with the arrival
of the second armored division from
Fort Benning.

Dramatic Star Mildred Natwick
Calls Ann Arbor 'Unacademic'

Claribel Barnett, '93, Honored

Visiting Dramatic Season star, Miss
Mildred Natwick thinks Ann Arbor
town is "unacademic."
Making her first appearance here
this week in "Ladies in Retirement,"
Miss Natwick had this to say about
Ann Arbor, "Spacious, beautiful .
yes . . . but unacademic."
Different from the other theatre
folk in that she skipped the stock
company stage of the game, Miss
Natwick went through the preliminary
trials of a dramatic education at
dramatic clubs and little theatres in
Next she joined the National Jun-
ior Theatre in Washington, D.C., and
later became a member of the Uni-
versity Players' Company of which
Henry Fonda and Ken Smith were
also members at that time.
'"Wind and Rain" marked her first
success after two "horrible flops,"
one in America and one in London,

all evasive on the subject of "flop"
productions as she said it was nearly
always the fault of the play rather
than the director or actors. Further-
more, she continued, - a beginner,
should keep himself in the public's
eyes as much as possible, in order to
accentuate future success.
Climbing up the well-known ladder
to fame on her own ingenuity, Miss
Natwick will always be remembered

Claribel R. Barnett, '93, has been.
honored upon her retirement after 33
years as Director of Libraries of the
United States Department of Agricul-
Concentrating in enlarging the col-
lections of the library and availing
the services of its staff to workers
of the Department, the librarian has
been active in the growth of the li-
brary from a collection of experiment
station publications and statistical
reports to an aggregation of more

than 300,000 books, 5,000 periodicals
and numerous miscellaneous reports.
In addition to this she has devel-
oped a system whereby catalog cards
pertaining to incoming additions are
sent to the libraries of the world.
Miss Barnett holds membership in
many scientific, library and biblio-
graphical societies. Her biography has
been included in the Who's Who sec-
tion of the June 7 Michigan Alum-
nus, now being distributed to sub-

NOTE: For courses having both lectures and quizzes, the Time of
Exercise is the time of the first lecture period of the week; for courses
having quizzes only, the Time of Exercise is the time of the first quiz
Drawing and laboratory work may be continued through the ex-
amination period in amount equal to that normally devoted to such
work during one week.
Certain courses will be examined at special periods as noted be-
low the regular schedule. All cases of conflicts between assigned exam-
ination periods must be reported for adjustment to Professor D. W.
MeCready, Room 3209 East Engineering Building, before June 2. To
avoid misunderstandings and errors, each student should receive noti-

each course during the period June 7 to June 17.
No single course is permitted more than four hours of examin
