C. C. Williams
To Talk Here
Social-Religion Is Subject
Of Address Tomorrow
Head of the Institute of Applied
Religion, The Rev. Claude C. Wil-
liams will discuss "The Social As-
pects of Religion" at 11 a.m. tomor-
row at the Unitarian Church.
Formerly a Presbyterian minister
in Arkansas, Mr. Williams became

convinced that a social-religion
should form a greater part of church
programs. Since that time he has
been training ministers and laymen
on the techniques of the new idea.
Through the Institute of Applied
Religion, Mr. Williams conducted a
training program in Detroit and
Cleveland during the last week and
will continue this work in other cities.
A featured speaker in Ann Arbor
two. years ago, Mr. 'Williams pre-
sented a 'talk on -his ideas at Lane
Hall. Since that time local people
have been actively working at spread-
ing his ideas by the display of charts
and study of accounts of his work
in the South.
First attempting the use of differ-
ent church programs in the South,
Mr. Williams' techniques soon werej
used by other groups. The Institute
of Applied Religion aids in the ex-
tension of the social-religion pro-
gram in the nation.

100 To Arm Democracy:
New ESMDT Training Group
WillBegin Classes Monday
4 - -

Although still working on the first
contingent, the University will feed
a second batch of nearly 100 train-
ees into its training production line
at 8 a.m. Monday when the new
group will attend their first class of
the Engineering, Science and Man-
agement Defense Training course in
Ordnance Materials Inspection.
Designed to fill a growing need for
technically-trained men to be used
as inspectors in war industries under
the jurisdiction of the Detroit Ord-
nance District, the course was in-
augurated in mid-January; when the
first group of trainees started the
three-month instruction period.
Unlike other ESMDT courses now,
being concluded in seven industrialI
cities in this vicinity, the ordnance
inspection course is a full-time prop-

There is no place like a radio sta-
tion for unpredicted performances,
Morris Hall frequenters will tell yout
-and impromptu acts behind the
mikes are more exhilarating thanz
those with which the radio audience
is familiar.!
Walking into the broadcasting of-l
fice to interview David Owen, in-
structor of radio, new this year to
Morris Hall, we discovered him
clutching a part of the public ad-
dress system in his hand. He was
broadcasting to his assistant up-.
stairs, "Calling all 'cars! Calling alls
cars! Report at once to main office,
Miss Johnson. That is all!"
Man Of Many Parts
"Pardon me," we asked, "but are
you the man who produced and di-
rected the 'First Nighter,' 'Jack Arm-
strong,' 'Skippy,' 'Rin Tin Tin,' and:
'Scattergood' serials? Did you just
come from Chicago's Blackett-Sam-
ple-Hummert station. Are you the
person who teaches broadcasting and
directs campus programs?"
He was.
Back in the control room, ace Dar
vid Norton sat tinkering with dials
and earphones. An import from ra-
dio technicalities of Interlochen and
Flint, he replaces Morris Hall tech-
nicians Frank Nader and Charlie
Moore, called by the national emer-
Norton Is Magician
Radio technique is only one of
Norton's accomplishments-he is al-
so a magician. It has been rumored
that pigeons and white rabbits have
been seen scampering around the
floor of the control room.
And -witnesses who saw Norton
defend the Morris Hall slogan, "The
show must go on!" swear that he is
Al magician.
One day the 'broadcasting ma-
chinery went on the blink. The di-
rector and the case of the serial, "Of
Legal History," scheduled to go on
the air in an hour, rushed about
helplessly. What could they do?
Norton Tb The Rescue
David Norton raced down to the
basement, salvaged an amateur ra-
dio set amplifier, forced it to coop-
erate with apparatus already in the
studio. Then a frenzied few minutes
of splicing wires, patching-and the
equipment was ready to be tested.
It was time to go on the air. The
participants gathered around. Would
it work?

osition, classes being helteight hours
a day, five days a week, for the 12
weeks of instruction.
$125 Per Month Salary
During this period the trainees will
receive $125 a month, whereas the
other courses, meeting at night for'
four hours a week over an eight-week
period, are unsalaried.
Admission requirements stipulate
that the enrollee be credited with a
minimum of one year at an engi-
neering college or at least two years
in a literary college, and that he meet
credit requirements'in mathematics,
physics and chemistry.
Anyone enrolling for the course
must also agree to serve as an ord-
nance inspector for a specified length
of time following the completion of
the course.
Comprehensive Course
Included in the course will be in-
struction in mathematics, blue-print
reading, industrial methods, proced-
ure manufacture, machine tool oper-
ation, visits to industry, inspection
practice and laboratory inspection.
Sponsored by the U. S. Office of
Education, working through the Uni-
versity Extension Service, the inspec-
tion course will be administered by
Col. H. W. Miller of the engineering
drawing department, while Dean
Ivan C. Crawford of the engineering
college is the University's representa-
tive to the education office.
Original plans called for the begin-
ning of this second period of in-
struction in mid-February, but the
program has been delayed until the
present. It was also planned to start
a third contingent of 100 later in
March, thus filling a quota of 300
men in training here at one time.
The more than 30 other ESMDT
courses now in progress will be com-
pleted within a few weeks, and plans
are being laid for another series to
start in April. Prof. R. H. Sherlock
of the civil engineering department
is coordinating these courses.

Coke Prices Are Up
- Two Straws, Please
Some students finally felt the seri-
ousness of living in a country at war
in the past few days when they sat
amazed in local sweet shops and were
told that the price of flavored cokes
has jumped two cents.
Since cherry and other flavored
syrups cannot be obtained due to the
