Lieut. Enkemann Directs Local
Eagle-Eye Sharpshooting Squad

Polish Ballet Star To Appear Here

Lieut. Casper Enkemann of the
Ann Arbor police force doesn't look
the part of a deadly marksman-he's
modest (gives his first name as C.
not Casper) and wears spectacles-
but he holds a national expert's rank-
ing in pistol-shooting and his "hobby"
is to build a local police force of
eagle-eye sharpshooters.
Lieutenant Enkemann is in charge
of the police department shooting
squad which was recently nosed out
byLincoln Park in a shooting match
held annually at the State Police
Barrackd in East Lansing. Out of a
possible 1200 points, the local shoot-
ing squad compiled a total of 1090
points-only to see their record
passed by the Lincoln Park squad
which rang up 1100.
Under Enkemann's direction, the
police squad of Walter Schmid,
George Stauch, Alfred Toney and
Noted Botanist
To Talk Here
Dr. William H. Weston, Jr., pro-
essor of cryptogamic botany at Har-
yard University, will speak at 4:15
p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 18, in the Nat-
ural Science Auditorium on the sub-
ject "Fungi and Fellow Men" under
the auspices of the Department of
Awesome as Dr. Weston's title and
lecture topic may sound, it was poin-
ted out that his lecture will be pre-
sented in popular form-non-tech-
nical language. In other words, Dr.
Weston's address is truly a Univer-
sity lecture, and not directed towards
any single group of students.
Dr. Weston has had considerable
experience in the tropics and Pacific
regions, having been pathologist in
charge of diseases of sugar cane in
the Philippines from 1918 to 1920.
He also made a survey of plant dis-
eases in Guam in 1920, and later
served as a special investigator in
suger cane diseases for the U. S. De-
partment of Agriculture and for the
Tropical Plant Research Foundation
in Cuba.
Going down to the Panama Canal,
Dr. Weston made a study of the trop-
ical fungi of Barro Colorado Island
in Gatum Lake.
A well known and extremely popu-
lar lecturer, Dr. Weston has a repu-
tation at Harvard for being a stim-
ulating, inspiring and well-liked
teacher. Many of his graduate stu-
dents have contributed a great deal
to the knowledge of fungi, particu-
larly those found in water.
In addition to being the first presi-
dent of the Mycological Society of
America, and a visiting professor at
Johns Hopkins, Dr. Weston is the
author of numerous papers on fungi,
dealing particularly with those which
attack sugar cane, corn, and other
members of the grass family.
cU' Faculty Men
WillGive Talk
To Address Dental Group
On ResearchFindings
Five faculty members of the School
of Dentistry will present papers on
their latest findings in dental re-
search at the 78th annual midwinter
meeting of the Chicago Dental So-
ciety, to be held Feb. 23 to 26 in

Prof. Kenneth Eastlick of the de-
partment of public health dentistry,
will speak on "Management of Pulp
Exposures in the Mixed Dentition."
will be answered by Prof. George R.
Moore of the orthodontics depart-
"The Place of the Fixed Bridge in
Restorative Dentistry" will be the
subject of a paper by Prof. Francis
B. Vedder of the department of crown
and bridge prosthesis.
Prof. Reed 0. Dingham of the oral
surgery department will read a paper
on "oral Surgery in General Prac-
tice," and Prof. Floyd A. Peyton of
the department of dental materials
will speak on "Acrylic and Acrylic-
Styrene Resins."
Professors Dingham, Eastlick and
Vedder will also lecture at various
clinics at the conference, which more
than 7,000 dentists from all parts
of the Western Hemisphere are ex-
pected to attend.
Stevenson Selected
As Study Adviser
Dr. Fred G. Stevenson, director of
the University's correspondence study
department, has been selected as an
adviser in the revision of courses to
be used in the National Citizenship
Education Program, and will spend

Harrison Schlupe-all officers and
all marksmen in national rankings-
are developing into sure shots in
slow fire, time fire and rapid fire
The police department has its own
special silhouette target located on
the Huron River Drive. Twenty inch-
es wide and two feet high, the target
takes a beating once every week when
the sharpshooter squad aims at the
three-inch white strip through the
middle from 150 feet out.
Besides direscting the shooting
squad to "knock the bull out of any
target," Lieutenant Enkemann is tak-
ing personal charge of making the
entire police department of 35 offi-
cers raise their shooting efficiency.
In two years the police force shooting
avergae has jumped from 61.20 out
of a possible perfect 100 to 70.12
through his insistence of concentrat-
ing on individual weaknesses and
seeing that "the boys get out once a
month to unlimber their pistols."
This year plaques are being given
to add a competitive note to the in-
tra-squad shooting practice. The in-
dividual making the greatest im-
provement over last year's record
will also get a pen-and-pencil set.
Lieutenant Enkemann revealed
that the "embarrassing secret" of the
police department is an added in-
ducement "to keep the boys on their
toes with a pistol." She is Miss Van-
derpool, police clerk, whose amaz-
ing ability with a short gun ranks her
ahead of many of her masculine as-
sociates. To date she is placing well-
up in the shooting scores with a rec-
ord of 84.5 out of a possible 100
An interesting sidelight of the pol-
ice department is their economical
practice of making bullets. Lieuten-
ant Enkemann stated that factory
loads come at $20 a thousand but the
police department can load its own
for only $5. "All we have to do is
buy the lead."
Prof. Revelli
Needs New
Band, Talent
Professor Revelli needs YOTJ!
That is, he needs you if you have at
least a vague idea of how to play a
band instrument, for the University
Bands are looking for new members
-both men and women.
"It doesn't mean that we are low-
ering our standards," Professor Rev-
elli, conductor of the bands, pointed
out. "It means merely that we would
like to see those students who used
to play an instrument in high school
and who have not yet tried out for
a University Band."
First meeting of the new semester
for the Pops Band will be held at 4:30
p.m. today in Morris Hall, and Pro-
fessor Revelli was quick to urge all
students interested to turn out.
Estimating that there are at least
200 musically-minded students in the
University who have never taken an
interest in band work, he declared
that these students are making a big
mistake in abandoning their music
Although it will act as a feeder for
the Concert Band as before, the Pops
Band will also present a series of
outdoor concerts this spring in its
own right, and will appear at basket-
ball games and other athletic events.
A boon to those students who are
pressed for time, the Pops Band
meets only twice a week, now re-
hearsing from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. Wed-
nesdays and Fridays, though .changes
may have to be made to avoid con-

One of the few cultural products
of World War II and already famous
throughout America, the Polish Bal-
let will be presented at 8:15 p.m.
Monday in Hill Auditorium under the
sponsorship of the University Polonia
The Ballet, directed by Felix Sad-
owski, formerly of the Warsaw Grand
Opera, will present a seven-feature
program highlighting Polish and
Hungarian folk tales in its Ann Ar-
bor appearance.
Once supported by the Polish gov-
ernment, the Ballet left Warsaw two
years ago for' performances at the
New York World's Fair. The outbreak
of war stranded the company in
America with no means of support
other than dancing.
At this point Sadowski formed the
present Polish Ballet and made ar-
rangements to tour the American
continent. They have continued to
present the Polish national dances in
successful engagements in New York,
Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland and
other American cities.
The Polish ballet is also unique in
its prima-ballerina, American-born
Local.. .
*Doctor's Dilemma
* Thorough Fumigation
Joseph G. Smith, an instructor in
Ophthalmalogy at the University
Hospital, had good intentions but the
police didn't know about them.
On Sunday he was caught driving
with expired California license plates.
Police stopped him and asked why.
It turned out he had a registration
for Michigan plates but had ne-
glected to fasten them on his car.
After he had observed the neces-
sary technicalities required by the
law, he was asked to report to plice
headquarters for a final inspection.
The police were satisfied and
watched Mr. Smith drive his car
* * *
A fumigating job sent ten-year-old
Janet Neffof :310 N. First St., to
the hospital late Saturday.
Mrs. M. Beech, owner of the house,
gave her caretaker special instruc-
tions to have apartment three fumi-
gated. The caretaker ordered the job
done-but the fumigator forgot to
notify the other residents in the
He stopped all the cracks in apart-
ment three and even placed a warn-
ing sign on the outside of the door.
The fumes passed upstairs where
young Janet Neff was alone in her
Her mother found her unconscious
minutes later and rushed her to St.
Joseph's hospital in a taxi. Her con-
dition is satisfactory,

Janina Frost. Miss Frost studied in
this country, and then continued her
training in Poland at the famed Pol-
ish Ballet school. Arriving in New
York just before Germany's attack on
Warsaw, Miss Frost was promptly en-
gaged by the Ballet.
Sadowski, born in Warsaw and a
widely-recognized choreographer in
pre-war Europe, organized the pres-
ent Polish Ballet to acquaint Ameri-
cans with the traditional dances of
Poland. These dances, as integral a
part of Poland as the old imperial
eagle, date back thousands of years.
Another Ballet star well-received
in this country, Miss Nina Juszkie-
wicz, arrived in America after a suc-
cessful London appearance. She was
educated in Paris.
Opening presentation on Monday's
program will be Chopiniana, which
will feature music by Chopin and
choreography by Sadowski. The Bal-
let will present Prelude, Polonaise
Militaire, Waltz, Nocture, Mazurke
No. 42 Op. 67, Mazurka No. 31 Op. 50,
and Mazurka No. 2 Op. 33.
Leading baritone of the Prague
National Opera and now a member
of the Chicago Civic Opera Company,
Milo Luka's guest artist appearance
will be the second presentation of
the evening.
The third performance, entitled
"Country Wedding," is a ballet situ-
ated in a rural village near Cracow.
Typical national dances are woven
into a country wedding atmosphere.
Following intermission, the Ballet
will present "Gypsy Camp," a rep-
resentation of the carefree wander-
ing life of the Hungarian gypsy. Sad-
owski has directed the choreography
of this Brahms work.
After another offering by baritone
Luka, the Ballet will perform "Tatra
Mountaineer." The music for this
light idyll of the Carpathians was
composed by Poland's Felix Paderew-
Final presentation of the Ballet
will be "Umarl Maciek, Umarl"
(Matthew Died, He Died), a char-
acter ballet with a famous Polish
folk-tale as its theme. Miss Frost
and Sadowski take the leading roles
in this musical resurrection.
