'000' For 'Bo Frolic:
Independent Men Will Spionsor
Hobo Hop In Union Ballroom

U.S. Naval Hero

"V" is for Victory but 000 is for
Hobo Hop.
It's a dance sponsored by Con-
gress, Independent Men's Organiza-
tion and-in the words of general
chairman S. Che Tang, '43-it's go-
ing to be "unique."
Everybody (including the patrons)
Will wear his oldest clothes. Anyone
who is too lazy to get his own date-
or for other i'easons-can apply for
a cutie at the Congress date bureau
which has been set up in cooperation
with Assembly, Independent Wom-
en's Organization.
The Hobo Hop-hereafter to be
called 000-will be held Jan. 16 at
the Michigan Union ballroom. Bill
Sawyer and 'his Ragamuffins will
provide the music.

Constitution Changes
LANSING, Jan. 6;.-/P--Te State
Constitutional Revision Study Com-
mission, appointed by Governor Van
Wagoner, organized itself today for
several months of research into the
basic structure of Michigan's gov-
ernment, without indicating whether
it would recommend whole or partial
alteration of the state constitution
to the voters next fall.
Justice George E. Bushnell of the
Supreme Court, chairman of the
wommlission, said the group might
recommend only partial revision, or
might outline a number of possible
changes "and leave it to the judg-
'ment of the voters whether a change
is needed."
The Secretary of State is required
legally to submit to the voters next
November the question as to whe-
ther the constitution shall be re-
vised. If the voters approve revision,
a constitutional convention is elected
the following spring and takes up its
Bushnell asserted "in spite of war
and the problems facing our people
there will appear on the ballot the
revision question whether we will it
or not. Regardless of the vote next
November, we can arouse the people
to a greater appreciation of our gov-
Lawrence Thaw
To Lecture Here
On India Travels
India, land of teeming millions,
will be described by Lawrence Thaw,
noted lecturer and traveler, in the
fifth Oratorical Association Lecture
Jan. 14 in Hill Auditorium.
The lecture, which will be illus-
trated with colored motion pictures,
will deal with the scenic aspects of
the gem of the British colonial em-
pire. Among the views will be the
famed Taj Mahal, the Juggernaut
of Puri and the world-renowned gar-
dens of Shalimar.
Thaw's lecture will be in contrast
with the talk given here last May on
the tense political situation of that
country by T. A. Raman, native In-
dian and London editor of the United
Press of India.
FBI Agent To Talk
To Law Students
A special agent of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, Mr. John S.
Bugas, will speak on the subject of
employment in the Bureau at 3 p.m.
tomorrow in room 150 Hutchins Hall.
The remarks will be addressed par-
ticularly to members of the senior

class of the Law School, but any
who are interested will be welcome.
The opportunity for employment
in the FBI is of interest to those in-
terested in investigational work. It
does not involve the trial of law
suits, but it does include the assem-
bling of evidence for use by Federal
district attorneys. The beginning
salary of the Bureau is reported to
be $3,200 a year.

Refreshments will be served in the
Union cafeteria.
Chairman Che Tang promises that
many "very humorous incidents"
will take place during the 000 but
he declined to specify. Instead, he
turned and ran into the Congress
Offices in the Union.
Meanwhile, a distinguished guest
will be present at the 000. He is
Hickory "Hobo" Squeaks, Michigan's
own Nomad who claims to be the
only full-fledged bum in the country
holding a college degree.
. Mr. Squeaks will fly into town'
from Hollywood in a few. days to
supervise the 000. Congress has
appointed the following men to as-
sist him in his work:
Besides general chairman S. Che
Tang, Bill Buffington, '44E, will serve
as secretary. Other committee mem-
bers are Tony Gentile, '43E, and Bob
Sforzini, '43E, ticket co-chairmen;
Al Wohl, '43, buildings chairman;
Coral DePriester. '44E, date bureau
chairman; Larry Williams, '44, pa-
trons chairman; Ed Merz, '44E, pub-
licity chairman, and Howard Houer,
'44, decorations chairman.

Shook Relates
Sailor's Life
Enlisted Men's Training
Described In Talk
The training and life of the navy's
enlisted personnel were described
last night by Lieut. K. S. Shook,
U. S. N., as part of a series of lec-
tures by the department of Naval
Science and Tactics for prospective
naval officers.
Telling of his recent experiences
at the Great Lakes Naval Training
Station, where he aided in the train-
ing of new recruits during the
Christmas recess, Lieut. Shook de-
scribed the impatience of the ap-
prentice seamen who chafed at the
three-week training period required
of them "before they got a crack at
the Japs."
He emphasized the fact that en-
listed men in the navy learn by gctu-
ally doing their work, and not by
studying their duties from books.
After their three-week acclimating
period, newly enlisted men are sent
directly to either a service school or
a ship. At the service schools they'
are taught every type of trade, fit-
ting them not only for naval service
but also giving them training invalu-
able in civilian life.

The air arms of both services were
apparently the most active in the
training and commissioning of Uni-
versity alumni and former students
at the turn of the year.
The Army Advanced Flying School
at Barksdale Field, La., announces
the graduation of Alexander D. Mc-
Connell, '39, and Robert B. Lyons,
'41, Jan. 2. McConnell received the
customary commission as second
lieutentant in the Air Corps Reserve
in addition to his wings, while Lyons
retained at his request his status as
second lieutenant in the Infantry Re-
serve, which he received after com-
pleting the ROTC course in college.
These two were members of the
last class to be graduated from the
southern air base before its change to
a pursuit base.

ing air center of World War fame.

one plane and damaging others.
Although sustaining a direct hit,
the Heron reached a port safely.

Also in training at Corpus Christi
are Lester W. Linez, '39, Robert C.

ing school is the only one where the
cadet may pursue his complete course
in flying, primary, intermediate and
advanced under one command.

A letter has been received from the
Teachers Insurance and Annuity
Association summarizing certain
modifications which have been adop-
ted with respect to the retirement
annuity contracts and life insurance
1. When the holder of a premium-
paying retirement annuity contract
enters a military, naval, or air force
of the United States, Canada, or New-
foundland, he may cease premium
payments on the contract with the
assurance that he may restore the
contract by simply resuming premi-
um payments (without payment of
the "omitted" premiums) if he does
so at the close of such service or
within six months thereafter. At that
time he will be expected to sign an
appropriate agreement as to reduc-

tion of the contractual benefits cor-
responding to the omitted premiums,
and the premium resumed will be
on the same actuarial basis as it
would have been if premiums had
been paid continuously.
2. All new life insurance policies
applied for after December 9, 1941,
will contain a provisionexcluding the
risk of death resulting either (a
from service outside the continental
limits of the United States, Canada,
and Newfoundland in a military,
naval, or air force of a country at
war, or (b) from operating or riding
in any kind of aircraft, except as a
fare-paying passenger on scheduled
airline flights. In event of death
under such excluded circumstances,
the reserve under the policy, less any
indebtedness, will be payable to the
beneficiary. This procedure applies
to all kinds of newly-written life in-
surance policies, including collective
insurance, but of course not to life
insurance policies previously written
without any such clause or to any
annuity contract. Among some
groups of applicants particularly
likely to enter the forces, the total
amount of insurance the Association
will write on an individual is re-

Ordnance Inspection Course: On
page six of Tuesday's Michigan Daily
there appeared an article with the
following clause: "but it is expected
that Selective Service headquarters
will take steps to defer the men who
enroll for the program." This is in-
correct. There is no basis for such
'an expectation. Each case will con-
tinue to be handled by its local
Selective Service board, and requests
for recommendations in the matter
will be treated individually by the
Ordnance Department on the basis
of whether or not the individual is in
fact indispensable on the work.

Invades University
The enemy struck a sharp blow at
the Michigan campus as German
measles laid low 16 students by yes-
terday according to a Health Serv-
ice report.
In addition two students had con-
tracted red measles, a more severe
form of the disease. German measles'
is one of the most highly contagious
diseases there are, and the campus
is warned to be on the lookout for
the first symptoms-sore throat, cold,
slight soreness in the glands behind
the ears, rash on the face and chest,
and possible temperature.
Patients have been shifted from
Health Service to the University Hos-
pital's Contagious. Ward to prevent;
spreading of the germ. Although it
takes from 14 to 21 days for the ill-
ness to develop after exposure to in-'
fection, the period of active illness
usually is only three days for German
