Authors $100 Check For Script
Public officials, architects and
realtors from all parts of the country
will gather here for first Conference
on the Expansion of Industrial Com-
munities with regard to housing and
community planning, to be held here
Nov. 29 and 30.
"The purpose of the conference is
to suggest planning of sound value
for the present and of some perman-
ent value in the future," Dean Wells
Bennett of the architecture college de-
clared in an interview yesterday.
Explaining. how the conference is
based on problems created by the na-
tional defense program, Dean Wells
compared the present situation to
that of 1918. He observed that great
changes in existing industrial com-
munities are bound to result from
the increased manufacture of de-
fense produce, and pointed out that
the extravagance of the last war can
be prevented by efficient planning,
The cornference's first day will be
devoted to the background and as-
pects of the present planning prob-
lem and the second day will deal with
the problems as theyare related to
Michigan. Nationally prominent
speakers will open the various sub-
jects and general discussions will fol-
low each talk.

In return, the Mimes opera com-
mittee presented them Friday with a
$100 check for services rendered.
But Charles Zolla, '42, and Aleck
Block, '40, the collaborating authors
who were informed this summer that
they had won the opera script contest,
have already spent their prize money
'taking numbers'-feminine ones-to
Detroit's more expensive night spots.
Where the usual campus bull-ses-

Debaters Beat 1
In First Match
Michigan's varsity men's debate
squad won the first of the Western1
Conference matches of the season!
from a University of Wisconsin team
at Madison Friday.
William Muehl, '41, and Joe Schro-
eder, '43, took the first debate of the1
season from a Wisconsin team com-J
posed of Howard Runkel and Melvin
Ecke. Judged by Dr. J. H. McBurney
of Northwestern University, the de-1
bate was awarded to the University
squad which upheld the negative of
the resolution, "Resolved: That the
Power of the Federal Government
Should Be Increased."
Accompanied by Mr. Arthur Secord
of the speech department and direc-
tor of the activity, the team also trav-
eled to Chicago yesterday to partici-
pate in the forum sponsored by the,

The second varsity debate will be7
with Purdue University there on Dec.
7, Mr. Secord announced. These two1
debates will comprise the University's
activity in the Western Conference
championship race. The team which1
will represent the University will be
announced early this week. I
"Take A Number" on Dec. 11, 12, 13
and 14 in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre will havethe opportunity to
see the more literary results of the
authors' collaboration. Their script
will be supplemented, of course, with
the contributions of other campus
composers who have provided more
than eight songs, and with the dance
creations of Helen Ellis, the dance
director who is working, desperately,
with 180 pounders for a chorus line.
Block, who is now working in De-
troit, made a special trip in this
weekend to collect his half of the $100
check, and to catch a glimpse of what
Richard Hadley, the director, and the
opera cast is doing to his brainchild.
After reviewing various rehearsals
Block commented, "We didn't think it
would be this good!" Zolla, who is
still on campus, modestly added, "It

The play, if the Mimes committee
approves, will also be entered in the
American Society of Composers And
Producers' contest for college shows
this year. ASCAP offers an annual
prize for the best campus production
of the year. Many of the songs, also,
will be given a chance at national
popularity and commercial success if
the play should be selected. It would
have to compete with the Harvard
