Presentation Of Officers,
Outline Of Season Plans
Will FeatureProgram
Opening their third year of activ-
ity, the Pre-Medical Society will hold
a smoker for all pre-medical sudents
at 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Union.
Following the presentation of offi-
cers for the present year, an outline
of the season's plans will be given.
Educational programs are being ar-
ranged, with trips to neighboring
hospitals and clinics supplementing
taks on various aspects of medicine.
For the first time, the club will this
year have a page in the Michigan-
ensian, and plans for the picture will
.e announced. In addition, informa-
tion will he given on the psychologi-
cal tests offered the students by the
Bureau of Human Adjustments. These
examinations will be free of charge to
members .and will give an indication
of each student's aptitude for the
practice of medicine.
During the meeting several prom-
inent members of the pre-medical
and medical faculties will be on hand
for informal discussion, and short
talks will be given by medical stu-
dents, former members of the society
and practicing physicians, to give as
completely as possible a bird's eye
view of' medicine.
.There will also be distribution of
pamphlets prepared by the American
Medical Association, on the "Choice
of a Medical School." It is hoped
that these booklets will aid juniors
and seniors intending to enter medi-
cal schools next year.
This year the Pre-Medical Society
will be led in its activities by four
committees, dealing with educational,
social, publicity and data work. The
data sheet committee will prepare
information on 15 to 20 of the better
known medical schools as to tuition,
entrance requirements and other im-
prtant information.
All pre-nedical students are cor-
dially invited to attend this opening
smoker. Refreshments and cigarettes
will be served.

Here Is Today's News
In Summary
Michigan's gas users may again be
charged on a cubic foot basis, rather
than a heat unit basis, if the gas
company's proposal is accepted by
the Michigan Public Service Commis-
To the consumer, the change will
mean no material difference, al-
though from $400 to $500 may be
saved, in aggregate, by gas users.
Rain and darkness were blamed for
retiring fire chief Charles J. An-
drew's failure to see an approaching
car Monday night. It struck him,
causing serious injury to the*'71 year
old man.
The accident occurred on Huron St.
in front of the fire station. Driver
of the car was John W. Brunnell, 19.
He was released by the police.

City Council members and city
officials were invited to the Ann
Arbor airport Sunday to take an
airplane ride over the city and
Ypsilanti by Dwight Renolds, man-
ager of the airport.
Passing over Renolds' aspersions
on the portliness of certain officials
and his offer of a bucket of "good
solid ,dirt" for those who may want
to keep one foot on the ground, the
Council accepted the invitation at
least to come out and see the field.

Rehearsals of Ann Arbor's Civic
Chorus will begin at 7:30 p.m. tomor-
row in room B-22 in the Ann Arbor
High school.

Dr. Kenneth N. Westerman, head
of the voice science deparmtent of
the Detroit Institute of Art, will di-
rect the Chorus in its second season
in the city.
The City Council had decided to
ask again of the State Highway De-
partment that a traffic control light
bevinstalled at S. Main and Stadium
The request was prompted by a
truck-automobile accident last Sun-
day night in which two persons were
injured. It was pointed out that the
number of accidents on this corner
certainly justifies the Council's re-
quest. Previous requests have been
denied by the Department.

Notice: Attention of all concerned,
and particularly, of those having
offices in Haven Hall, or the western
portion of the Natural Science Build-
ing is directed to the fact that park-
ing or standing cars in the driveway
between these two buildings is pro-
hibited, because it is at all times in-
convenient to other drivers and to
pedestrians on the diagonal and
other walks. If members of your
family call for you, especially at
noon when traffic both on wheels and
on foot is heavy, it is especially urged
that the car wait for you in the
parking space adjacent to the north
door of University Hall. Waiting in
the driveway blocks traffic and in-
volves confusion, inconvenience, and
danger just as much when a person

Promising a program of fine enter-
tainment coupled with vivid scenes
of several phases of the war, the Art
Cinema League will present the new
Soviet musical comedy "Volga-Volga,"
the latest newsreel from the Eastern
Front and an Engiish documentary
showing an RAF bombing of Nazi-
held islands.
The films will be shown at 8:30
p.m. Saturday and Sunday in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
"Volga-Volga" reveals a new facet
of the Russian genius for .film-mak-
ing in the fields of music, dramatic
satire and scenic design.
Perhaps the most astonishing fea-
ture of the film is its use of action-
gags, character-gags and just plain
slapstick with an amazing expertness.
In some of its respects "Volga-
Volga" is strongly reminiscent of the
Will Rogers' film, "Steamboat Around
the Bend," and even more so of W.
C. Fields' "Mississippi."
The "New York Times" said of it,
''. without self-consciousness they
have assembled a spirited potpourri
of song, dance and nonsense that has
more verve than most of its suaver
Hollywood counterparts... . They are
a joyous company to have around.
Their carnival spree is downright
good fun."
