A Tense Moment From


Washington Slept Here'



This is a scene from the Kaufman-Hart comedy, "George Washington Slept Here," appearing at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre through tomorrow. The play is a revival of the production given by the Michi-
gan Repertory Players last summer when the above p hotograph was taken. The set now being used is vir-
tually the same as the one pictured, but the lack of work in building the sets is well balanced by the many
tasks which the stage crew must perform under the d irection of Robert Mellencamp, art director.

Speech Society
Picks National
Committee Seeks Better
Way Of Draft Selection
For Speech Defectives
Because draft boards have been
given no clear standard by which to1
measure the status of men with
speech defects, there is a great in-
consistency among the boards in this
country as to which classification
these men should be put in.
There have been instances in
which men who were severe stut-
terers were accused of malingering
and inducted even though unfit for
military duty. Others whose. speech
defects were relatively mild, were ,de-
ferred even though their speechI
would have been adequate for serv-
ice. -
After/ reaching this conclusion,
the American Speech Correction As-
sociation is now seeking a means of
evaluating speech defects more sat-
isfactorily, so that draft boards may
have better standards for selection.
An emergency \committee was ap-
pointed recently to deal with7 this
problem. The members of the com-
mittee are Dr. H. Harlan Bloomer'.
head of the University Speech Clinic;
Dr. Mack Steer, Purdue Jniversity;
Dr. Charles Strother, Iowa Univer-
sity, and Dr. Paul Moore, North-
A portion of this work has been
assigned to the University Speech
Clinic. The members of the Clinic
have been given the task of finding
the present status of individuals of
draft age who have had speech de-
fects and who have been registered
in some clinic. They will also study
the situation of men enrolled in the
Univeresity and will contact other
speech organizations throughout the
country for further information.
The results of this survey will aid
in finding a place for men in various
phases of defense work. It will also
provide valuable information regard-
ing persons whose speech defects
have persisted intoadulthood.

Church Group
To Celebrate
In 1867 the nation was agitated by
post-war politics and reconstruction,
and on Jan. 21 in Ann Arbor, 22 men
and women were entering the newly
completed Unitarian church. Now, in
the midst of another period of war-
time unrest, the present church
members are celebrating its 75th an-
Prior to the construction, a group
in 1865 "desirous of securing to our-
selves and our families the advan-
tage of religious instruction and fel-
lowship" signed the Articles of As-
sociation, the oldest churc docu-
ment, and held services in the Court
House. Two University buildings
bear the names of early Unitarians.
Victor Vaughan, who was Dean of
the Medical School, and Charles E.
Greene, first Dean of the School of
Pre-Unitarian religious efforts be-
gan in 1835 with a group of uniden-
tified liberals who felt that they were
able to support "sustained preach-
ing" and wrote to Nathaniel Stacy,
an itinerant preacher of the Univer-
salist church, inviting him to Ann
Arbor. Past fifty, he was then in
the "wild and trackless country"
south of Lake Erie, and on arrival
promptly plunged into column writ-
ing in the Weekly Argus and the
State Journal.
Dr. Frederick Elpt of Boston and
president of the American Unitarian
Association, will open the Anniver-
sary week by speaking at 11 a.m.
Sunday in the church. Former stu-
dents of the University will return
to lead the student meeting at 7:30
p.m. on the general question of "The
Place of the Unitarian Church in
Student Affairs."
War Production
Will Be Featured
By New 'Technic'
War production will be given spe-
cial attention in the January issue of
The Michigan Technic, engineering
college publication, which will go on
sale Wednesday, Jan. 21, as the first
issue of 1942.
Featured in this issue will be an
article on the "World's Largest
Bomber Plant," by Keith L. Smith,
'43E, describing the Willow Run
bomber plant in Ypsilanti. As head
of The Technic's article department,
Smith made a recent inspection trip
through the plant to gather infor-
Equally important in the magazine
this month will be an article by Prof.
Henry W. Miller of the engineering
drawing department on "Revolution
in Artillery," while "Miracle in Con-
crete," an article on Grand Coulee
Dam, by William O. Jacobs, '44E, will
complete the list of banner features
for this month.

Autos Affected
By Rubber Ran
University Trucks Will Be
Retreaded In Future
The tire ban doesn't affect the
students, but the University found
itself with 55 vehicles and a low pri-
ority rating.
The tires on these cars and trucks
which are assigned to various de-
partments and schools face a future
of "re "-recapping, retreading and,
finally, retirement for the duration.
By virtue of the University's A-9
priority rating, its chances of ob-
taining any new tires are about equal
to those of the average citizen who
doesn't enjoy the title of doctor,
surgeon or visiting nurse,
But one department; at least, is
doing what it can to postpone the
day sometime in the future when
its trucks will rattle down the streets
on rims. Charles E. Pardon, super-
intendent of the Buildings and
Grounds Department, has ordered
two of the department's vehicles to
be put into storage so that they may
be saved for future use.
Pardon, in collaboration with 0. E.
Roszel, superintendent of the ware-
house, has also initiated a sticker
campaign for tire conservation which
he expects to be adopted by all Uni-
versity departments operating trucks
and cars. He has distributed to each
truck a red and white sticker printed
with a series of "don'ts"-don't skid,
spin the wheels, jump curbs or speed.
And the last line says significantly,
"Your job depends on the life of
these tires."
