Minority Of State Street Stores
Offer Defense Stamp Change

Detroit Stands Guard

After four months of war, after
four months of rationing, curtail-
ment, and war saving, a Daily survey
yesterday showed only a minority of
State Street stores to be participating;
in the "take part of your change in
defense stamps" campaign.
Figures for this survey, taken from
a representative group of merchants
serving the University area, showed
only ten stores carrying defense
stamps compared to nineteen who
"intended to put them in, but never
got around to it."
Of eight restaurants-most fre-
quent outlet of student expenditure-
only four had stamps on hand. One
of these claimed to possess war sav-
ings stamps, but no sign to that ef-
fect was in evidence.
Most of the stores seemed some-
what disinterested in the whole thing,
and also reported little demand for
stamps from their customers. In one
shop, the Daily reporter was told that
he was the second person to have
asked for them since the drive began.
The main reason for absence of
stamps next to local cash registers
was the fact that "nobody ever comes
around to ask us about them." An-
other merchant, somewhat short-
handed because of war curtgilment
in his merchandise, declared that
handling defense stamps with change
involved too much extra labor for his
present staff.
The majority- of stores without
Grad Council Meets
To Discuss Rooms
Reperesentatives from all graduate
groups are asked to attend an im-
portant meeting of the Graduate
Council to be held at 5 p.m. today in
the Rackham Building. The gradu-
ate rooming problem will be discussed
and new committees will be named to
plan future social activities.
A square dance sponsored jointly
by the Graduate Council and Grad-
uate Outing Club will be held from
9 to 12 p.m. Saturday in the Outing
Club rooms in the Rackham Build-
ing. Music will be furnished by rec-

recommending the Post Office as the
nearest source, and apparently were
not aware that some shops were
carrying them.

cent. This body's predecessor-the
Committee on Student Affairs Other
Than Athletics-was formed in 1902
without any students included on its
roll.
"About 15 years ago the commit-i
tee was liberalized to give students
membership," Dean Bursley declared.
The main function of the commit-
tee is that of formulating policy, since
it has the power to initiate legisla-
tion. It sets up rules in such fields
as eligibility for extra-curricular
activities, dances, fraternity and sor-
ority finances and rushing rules.
Any final change in student gov-1
ernment would have to come beforel
this body, although Dean Bursley
declared that "established channels
of student government take first
action on all changes."
Dean Bursley defined the Union,[
the League, Women's"Judiciary, and
Men's Judiciary as recognized organi-
zations to which authority in such a
case would be delegated.
The purpose of this policy, ac-
cording to Dean Bursley, is to pre-
vent three or four different forms of
student government from conflicting
with each other on the University
campus.
This separation of powers does not
date back more than 10 or 12 yearsi
ago, Dean Bursley told The Daily. At
that time there was a council con-
sisting of both men and women, but
it eventually split into various groups.
The student affairs committee has
no regular meeting schedule but con-
venes on an average of once a
month. The Committee on Student
Conduct arnd its sub-committee on
discipline, however, meets much less
frequently.
Blackout I'arty lanied
When the Wesleyan Guild declaredI
the Westminster Guild's dance floor
to be poorly lighted, the latter de-
cided to show the Wesicyans how dark
a dance floor can really be and has
invited them to a blackout party
which will be held from 8:30 to 12
p.m. today in the Social Hall of the
Presbyterian Church.

Post-War Body
Holds Second
Meeting Today
Michigan's newest student organi-
zation-the Post-War Council-will
hold its second formal meeting at
4 p.m. today in Room 210 North Hall.
In stressing the importance of the
meeting and urging every member to
be present, Chairman Cliff Streahley,
'44, said plans are rapidly being
drawn up for the all-campus confer-
ence scheduled for April 17 and 18
and specific decisions must be made
by the Council today.
Straehley also said that. the or-
ganization has established its head-
quarters in Room 210 North Hall.
This is in line with the Council's pol-
icy of becoming a permanent campus
group devoted solely to tbe task of
stimulating discussion of post-war
problems.
The first project of the Council will
be the huge all-campus conference
at which it is planned to have nation-
ally-known leaders in the fields of
business, labor, government, agricul-
ture and education.
Composed of representatives from
major campus organizations, the
Post-war Council boasts one of the
most outstanding faculty advisory
committees ever assembled by any
student group.
The faculty members include Pres-
ident Alexander Ruthven, Prof. Ar-
thur Smithies of the economics de-
partment, Prof. James K. Pollock of
the political science department and
Prof. Harlow J. Heneman, director of
the University War Board.
Campus organizations which are
represented on the Executive Com-
mittee of the Council include The
Daily, the Interfraternity Council,
Congress, Panhellenic, Assembly, the
Student Senate and the Student
League of America. There is also one
independent member.

The Reserve Officers' Training
Corps invites the faculty and stu-
dents of the University to celebrate
the advent of spring at a war on
Saturday, March 21, at 1:30 p.m. in

Tomorrow afternoon a provisional
rifle company reinforced by a ma-
chine gun and aircraft will perform
a tactical exercise involving the rifle
squad for the benefit of any who
may care to be present.'
This maneuver is the culmination
of two weeks' instruction and prep-
aration. The use of aerial bombard-
ment and communications will be
introduced to the local unit for the
first time in actual practice. A panel
squad from the Signal Corps will op-
erate this means of ground-air com-
munication.

Priority claims made on rubber
are no greater than claims made on
radio technicians--cause of the big-
gest headache in producing campus
broadcasts, according to Prof. Waldo
Abbot, director of radio.
As far back as 1925 when the pio-
neers of University broadcasting were
struggling to put on their ten radio
programs a year in the tiny room on
the fourth floor of University Hall,
i there have been technician troubles,
Professor Abbot claims.
At that time technical assisting
was dlone by a telephone man from
Detroit, who staggered up the four
flights each broadcasting Saturday,
lug ing "hundreds of pounds of
eqtuipmient," which included amnpli-
fiers, heavy storage batteries, wires
and miscellaneous apparatus.
"When the studio moved to Morris
Hall in 1926, we continued for a time
to use telephone lines, and the tele-
phone company supplied two oper-
ators," Professor Abbot explained. "It
wasn't nces-sary to have a technician
around much, for our programs were'
practically all faculty talks, which
eliminated rehearsals and auditions."
In 1933, with the addition of more

i1

student programs, a University boy,
Turrel Uleman, was employed as
technician. He stayed with Morris
Hall for awhile, married a student in
one of the broadcasting classes, and
was enticed to Pittsburgh's Mellon
Institute with a research fellowship.
"When he left, we hired another
student, Jerome Wiesner," Professor
Abbot revealed. "But he followed his!
predecessor-married a student and
went off to another job, as chief of
the recording project in the Library
of Congress. He still holds this posi-
tion."
Before Wiesner left, he trained
Charles Moore, who remained as
Morris Hall technician for two years
-until the national emergency
caught up with him. He was called
this fall to do defense research in
Massachusetts Institute of Technol-
ogy.
Frantically Morris1 Ha0l instructors
searched for another technician, and
they found him in Fra+nk Nader, who
had gained his radclio experience at
Interlochen.
Nader was a success-for "slightly
over two months." He left for Fort
Monmouth, N. J., to do research work
in the laboratory of the Signal Corps.
So the broadcasting studio en-
gaged their third technical assistant
in three months - David Norton,
also of Interlochen, who incidentally
"'doubles in magic." And newcomer
Norton is being handled with the pro-
vcrbil "'kid gloves," to insure his
reaining1([ at Morris Hall.
F'or boys left Morris iHall for
better jobs," said Professor Abbot
sa "of course it's fine that they
received those offers, but it certainly
creates broadcasting difficulties."
"I'm waiting for the engineering
school to train women technicians
for Morris Hall," Professor Abbot
('oolluded.

MILITARY MEN
By The Gunner
Chief Firecontrolman A. P. Thomas,
recruiter in charge of the Navy's
Jackson recruiting substation,advises
all men of the Jackson area, which
includes the counties of Jackson,
Hillesdale, Washtenaw and Lenawee,
given selective service order numbers
in the lottery Tuesday, to look into
I opportunities offered them by the
Navy and Naval Reserve.
"We feel that many of the selec-
tees who have just received order
numbers can qualify as petty officers
in the Navy at a high rate of pay,"
said Thomas. He pointed out that
these positions pay up to $99 per
month, plus subsistence allowance.
More detailed information may be
obtained at the Navy Recruiting Sta-
tion, New Post Office Building, Jack-
son.
From the Enlisted Replacement
Training Center at Edgewood Ar-
senal, Md., comes the information
that Liuet. Philip W. Hleuman, of
Ann Arbor, has been promoted from
second lieutenant to first lieutenant
in the Chemical Warfare Service.
Back in the Navy, two University
graduates received their appoint-
ments as aviation cadets at Jackson-
ville, Fla., this week.
The two are Arthur W. Brewer,
'39A, and Richard S. Wagner, '40.
While at the University Brewer re-
ceived an architectural scholarship
that enabled him to travel in South
America.
