Coeds Prefer
Poll Reveals
Michigan girls still prefer the
soldier boys to the sailors!
Or so a recent campus survey re-
vealed,.in which 100 coeds were asked
the question: "Which do you think
are the handsomest in their uni-
forms, the NROTC or ROTC stu-
dents, and which would you rather
Of the hundred questioned, 58
stated preference for the boys in
brown, though all 58 stated that they
liked best the "fellows in the advance
course, not the frosh and sophomores,
who look too much like boy scouts."
Incidentally, all the NROTC stu-
dents are freshmen, since the unit is
new to the campus this year.
Main complaint regarding the
sailor suits was "that they look too
much like policemen." One girl, who
will remain anonymous for obvious
reasons) put it this way: "Why, they
look just like any cop, and you can
see -a cop on State Street any day."
The NROTC students have their
staunchest supporters in the ranks of
freshman women. Said one young
thing: "I've always heard a lot about
sailors and the way they act, but I
never thought I'd see any on the

Michigan campus. And they are just
wonderful, too."
Another put it this way: "The
ROTC uniforms look too much like
boy scout suits, and besides most of
the soldiers are already taken."
Several girls stated preference for
the navy because blue was their fav-
orite color, and one was true to the
fleet because "it's new on campus,
and we've been seeing those drab old
brown uniforms every year."
The decision was quite close,
though. Fifty-eight selected the
ROTC, 42 the NROTC. One girl-
the one hundred and first one ques-
tioned-was a little cynical. Said
she: "I don't prefer either one of
them. In fact, I don't prefer any
Michigan men. When I want a date,
I go up to State-where the men are
really men!"

Declaring that with adequate finan-
cial support by the American people
infantile paralysis will be conquered'
if it is humanly possible, Dr. Max
Peet, Professor of Surgery at the Un-
iversity's Medical School broadcast
an appeal for continued support over
station WJR yesterday at 1:30.
Dr. Peet outlined the fight against
the disease from its start, and ex-
plained how difficult it was to make
any important discoveries without
funds for research. But now, with
the public contributing money, much
progress has been made.
Of the funds collected, one-half
goes to the National Foundation for
Infantile Paralysis and the other
half stays in the community for local
needs, Dr. Peet pointed out.
The national organization uses the
money collected to purchase sup-
plies and send them where and when
they are needed. Splints and iron
lungs, expensive equipment for indi-
vidual communities are kept in re-
serve by the Foundation for the oc-
casions when they will be needed.
Besides fighting the disease itself,
the Foundation uses part of its funds
to sponsor scholarships and research
laboratories for the prevention of
Infantile Paralysis. The University

of Michigan, for instance, has been
granted $30,000 for a virus research
Dr. Peet stressed that it is not
so much the seriousness of an epidem-
ic that is to be feared, but its contin-
ual recurrance. And its effects on
those afflicted are maiming and per-
manent. "Other diseases have a much
higher death rats," he said, "but those
who recover from them ate completely
well, while those surviving infantile
paralysis are so often permanently
The local drive for funds is being
conducted by Bill Combs, '41, and
Hervie Haufler, '41, working with
the Ann Arbor comittee to have all
student organizations contribute to
the campaign. The local quota is
"You and Your Doctor," a skit by

ed since that year.I
Mitropoulos has gained consider-
able attention throughout the coun-
try because of his activities as guest
conductor with the New York Phil-
harmonic. Besides "rave notices" from
the music critics, Mitropoulos con-
certs drew the largest concert crowds
that New York has witnessed in the
past ten years. He was first offered
the post as Minneapolis conductor,,
as a matter of fact, after his debut!
in this country in 1936 with the Bos-
ton Symphony Orchestra. Since then
he has been asked to return often,
as guest conductor for the major
Ann Arbor audiences Tuesday will
notice that the Greek conductor leads
his orchestra without a baton and
from memory. In his own words Mi-
tropoulos does not affect these unique
accomplishments-they are matters
"of deep significance and inner com-
pulsion." He believes that a leader
