To Be Sought
War Prisoners, Refugees
To Receive Assistance
From Campus Drive
By IRVING JAFFE
With all the nation's youth con-
centrating its energies on strength-
ening the war effort, little thought
has been given lately to the plight of
students and war prisoners in the
battle-scarred lands of Europe and
To aid these students and war
prisoners of all nations, and also to
help refugee students, is the purpose
of the World Student Service Fund,
which will initiate its drive on cam-
pus this month.
Plight Of Chinese Students
The lot of the Chinese students
who have had to move continually
westward in the face of privation and
hardship in order to continue their
education, and whose homes and
families in many cases have been
destroyed by the Japanese invader,
is one of the chief concerns of the
Fund. Although Chinese students re-
ceive money from the Fund for their
expenses as students and for trans-
portation to the transplanted uni-
versities, the biggest single item in-
cludes subsidies and loans for the
bare necessities of living.
Aid is also administered im-
partially to prisoners of war and to
military and civil internees in Ger-
many, England, occupied and unoc-
cupied France, Switzerland and Aus-
tralia. Such aid is also administered
in Canada. Through the European
Student Relief Fund, aid is given in
the camps, either indepnedently or
with the cooperation of the Y.M.C.A.
Refugees Also Helped
Refugees -are helped too. They
are found. mainly in the United
States, unoccupied France, Finland,
Rumania, Hungary, and Switzerland.
Since many other relief organizations
carry on the same work with refu-
gees, the World Student Service Fund
attempts to avoid duplication by
clearance and cooperation with such
groups. A large proportion of refu-
gee relief is carried on in the United
In order to get around the limi-
tations imposed on shipping in war-
time, in most cases money is cabled
to the foreign countries and the sup-
plies bought there, rather than at-
tempting to ship supplies abroad.
Navy To Heave Anchor

The University will join hands with
the U.S. Navy momentarily this week
when 11 Navy men arrive here to-
morrow for a four-day course in ma-
Following the completion, of the
course here, the men will be employed
by the Navy as purchasing agents for

Discussions Are Designed
To Stimulate Studies
Final registration of students who
wish to participate in the Pan-
American extempore-discussion con-
test has been advanced to 5 p.m. to-
All eligible students are permitted
to enter this contest which has been
started by the Office of the Coorr
dinator of Inter-American Affairs in
order to stimulate a widespread study
of Pan-American relations among
all college students. All University
students should register immediately
in the Speech Office, Room 3211 An-
This contest has been divided into
four sections, the intra-school meets,
the district contest, the regional con-
ferences and the final national inter-
collegiate conference. According to
present plans, all six winners of the
finals contest will be awarded a tour
of the South American republics.
The plan of the intra-school con-
test in the University has already
been worked out. All students will be
required to give a short speech deal-
ing with any phase of inter-American
After these addresses have been
given, a forum period patterned after
the plan of the future contests will
be held. Books which may be used
for research have been listed and re-
served in the first floor study hall of
the General Library.
Students may obtain further in-
formation of this contest from the
Speech Office or from Prof. Kenneth
G. Hance of the Speech Department.
To Give Recital
Works To Be Played
Featuring the works of Mendls-
sohn, Vaughan Williams and Claude
Debussy, Prof. Palmer Christian,
University organist and member of
the School of Music faculty will give
another in his current organ recital
series at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow.
In presenting Felix Mendelssohn's
Sonata in C minor, No. 2, Professor
Christian will perform somewhat of a
revival. Mendelssohn's organ music
includes six sonatas, three preludes
and various smaller items, which at
one time were in the repertoire of
most organists, but the past two or
three decades their former popular-
ity has faded.
Vaughan Williams will be repre-
sented by two selections from his
Suite for Viola entitled "Carol" an
"Musette." Claude Debussy's Pre-
lude to "La Demoiselle elui," original-
ly an orchestral and vocal setting to
Gabriel Rosetti's poem, has been
transcribed for organ by Professor
Also to be heard on the program
will be the works of de Heredia,
Clerambault, Couperin, Andriessen,
Sociedad Will Hear
A refutation of the theory connect-
ing the civilization of the pre-con-
quest Indians with that of ancient
Egypt and Mesopotamia will be pre-
sented by Prof. Ralph W. Hammett
of the architecture college in his lec-
ture for La Sociedad Hispanica at
4:15 p.m., Thursday in Room D,
Alumni Memorial Hall.
For year archaeologists have tried
to connect these two civilizations by
claiming that the lost island of At-
lantis was the bridge between them.
A more logical connection, explains
Professor Hammett, could be made
between the civilizations of the pre-
conquest Indians and the ancient
Professor Hammett will try to
prove his theory by showing illustra-
tions of Chinese art found in Mexi-
co. He will also survey the art and
architecture of pre-conquest Mexi-
co, showing colored slides he recently
Along with the lecture, Professor
Hammett will display a personal col-
lection of fetishes and idols. This
collection contains some unique speci-
mens, and has aroused much enthusi-
asm among spectators.

"Our 'Bulldozer' will have the
'Garg' beaten nine ways to one."
So laid John Auferoth. '42E, edi-
torial staff member of the American
Society of Civil Engineers new offi-
cial publication-the "Bulldozer."
The bi-monthly Bulldozer is the
first publication of its kind in the
engineering college and is rigorously
defended against outside criticism
by its editorial staff. The ASCE pub-
lications committee includes Aufer-
oth, Paul Palmgren. '43E, John Hil-
dinger, '43E, Roger Goodwin, '43E,
Bob Herbst. '44E, Paul Erikson, '43E,
and Bud Fisher, '43E.
Yesterday's first edition of the
paper carried a resume of the high-
way conference, an announcement of
the coming ASCE meeting, a charac-
ter sketch of Dean Ivan C. Crawford
of the engineering college and num-
erous additional features.
Calling for suggestions and criti-
cisms, Paul Palmgren, '43E. of the
"Bulldozer" editorial staff, said in an
introduction to the first issue that
the purpose of the paper will be mere-
ly to present the news of the civil

ant ASCE announcements.
Confer In Union,
More than 50 librarians and library
trustees from three southern Michi-
gan counties met at the Michigan
Union yesterday to discuss the prob-
lems confronting those connected
with library service in smalltowns.
The meeting was highlighted by the
address of Prof. Howard Y. McClusky
of the School of Education who spoke
on "The Challenge of Public Serv-

Blackouts ShouldBe 'Blitzed 'A Little,
Is Firm Contention Of Professor Alt
Recently returned from the Aerial
Bombardment Protection Conference
in New York City, Prof. Glenn L. Alt
of the civil engineering department
declared yesterday that blackouts are
now being used more than necessary
and should be avoided when possible.
Blackouts often do more harm
than good, he declared and pointed
to England for proof. About 90 per-
cent of the civilian casualties there
have resulted from blackout traffic
acidents-not from Nazi bombings.
"Plane crews traveling 300 m.p.h.
at an altitude of 1000 feet must sight
their target and take aim almost two
miles before they are actually over-
head of the designated target," Pro-
fessor Alt stated.
"At this rate, blackouts can neither
help nor hinder a pilot's aim."
On the other hand, he pointed out,
the use of blackouts cannot be aban-
doned completely because they are
extremely useful in cases of actual
raids when planes are circling low
over a bombing area.
"Effective blackouts are very diffi-
cult to fachieve anyway," Professor
Alt said. "A small bit of a candle is
visible from an overhead plane and a
lighted cigaret is an easy target."
Professor Alt explained a recent
change in views on bombardment
protection when he said, "above-the-
Motorists were given an additional
two days of "free wheeling" by Chief
of Police Sherman H. Mortenson but
after midnight yesterday all cars
caught out of driveways with 1941
license plates will be "ticketed" as
violators in the eyes of the law.
Chief Mortenson previously an-
nounced that Saturday midnight was
the deadline for old plates and warned
that tickets would be issued if motor-
ists didn't attach 1942 license plates
after that date.
But the local license bureau crossed
the chief up and closed at 5 p.m. Sat-
urday instead of three hours later as
per orders from Lansing.
Philip Schumacher, manager of the
license bureau, led all license appli-
cants inside the building late Satur-
day afternoon and ordered the out-
side door barred to the public. Ex-
plained Mr. Schumacher: "My staff
and I are all tired out."
After supper Saturday night, a
number of license aspirants turned
up at police headquarters to wonder
why the bureau didn't give them their
chance to buy. Telephone calls won-
dered the same thing.
That's the reason the chief was
forced to compromise. Violation-of-
the-law tickets are official now and

Cook Files Suit
To Oust Regent
Asserts Burhans Illegally
Elected To Position
LANSING, March 2.-( P)-Frank-
lin M. Cook, Hillsdale Democrat, filed
suit in the Supreme Court today for
a writ of mandamus to compel At-
torney General Herbert J. Rushton to
institute quo warranto proceedings to
oust Senator Earl L. Burhans, Paw
Paw Republican, from the office of
Regent of the University of Michigan.
He contended Burhans was illeg-
ally elected to the post and that he,
as the next high candidate, should
be declared elected. His petition as-
serted Burhans can not legally hold
the two elective offices of Senator and
Regent, and that therefore all votes
cast for him for the latter post in the
April, 1941, election are null and void.
Cook's petition asserted Rushton
declined to bring the suit, and that,
as Attorney General, he had no right
To Conduct Forest
Products Cour se
Prof. Robert Craig, Jr., of the
School of Forestry and Conservation
will leave today for the U. S. Forest
Products Laboratory at Madison,
Wis., where he will build up and
conduct courses in the construction
and inspection of wooden containers
for all types of war equipment.
These laboratories, which are op-
erated in cooperation with the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin, are a federal
organization under the U. S. Forest
Service. In them all research in for-
est utilization is . concentrated.
Professor Craig's appointment is
for three months, after which he will
return here to get ready for the reg-
ular summer session of the forestry
school at Camp Filbert Roth of which
he is director. He was one of seven
professors granted leaves of absence
by the Board of Regents.

Professor Alt cited New York City
as an example of excellent war ad-
justment and summarized the ideal
civilian attitude in war-time in six

Nervous panic is the surest road to
defeat, he warned.
Professor Alt believes that the Of-
fice of Civilian Defense must be the
voice of the nation in this emergency.
And the best policy for the ordinary
civilian is to do exactly as he is told
by this government agency.-
"Individual effort is generally fu-!
tile," he said, "but effort organized at
the top and carried through by civil-
ian cooperation can do wonders."
Professor Alt plans to open a de-
fense course in "Aerial Bombardment
Protection" in Detroit and a similar
course is planned for Ann Arbor
