Defends overtime

Speaking earnestly to the House
Naval Committee in Washington,
Secretary of Labor Frances Perk-
ins (above) declared that suspen-
sion of the 40-hour work week
would only reduce workers' pay en-

extra cost of living."

t1t The Gunner
Among the 27 Wolverines now un-
dergoing the basic stage of their 35-
week training period at Randolph
Field, Tex"., are thee former 'ni
versity men.
At the oldest and biggest basic
school of the Gulf Coast Air Corps
Training Center are Aviation Ca-
dets William L. Schnorbach, James
W. Oakes and Norman P. Payea.
After 10 weeks at Randolph Field
Michigan's potential flying officers
will enter an advanced school and,
upon graduation, will be commis-
sioned second lieutenants in the Army
Air Corps.

"And I wonder where that - - - -
brother of mine, E.J. is located now?"
Sergt. Francis W. Fitsharris, a
member of the 10th Materiel Squad-
ron at Scott Field, Ill., who read the
above lament in a letter from his
brother Bill, stationed at Fort Sill,
Okla., started to worry about it too.
But Sergeant Fitzharris is only the
youngest of five brothers, sons of John
Fitzharris of Manistique, who are
srigin the Army.
There's Bill, who was a freshman
at the University, E. J., formerly a
worker at an aircraft plant in Los
Angeles, Jack, who resided in Mil-
waukee, and Burleson, who was doing
graduate work at the University.
SLike Mother Carey and her chick-
ens, Sergeant Fitzharris has his trou-
bles in keeping the family knots from
unraveling. Jack, hedknew,was at
C amp Polk, La., and "Burley" at
Camp Wolters, Tex.
He put aside the letter from Bill
at Fort Sill and started to sort the
'second mail as part of his duties in
the Special Services office at Scott
Field. Another letter from Fort Sill
popped out and Sergeant took only
one look before he wrathfully bound-
ed over to the telegraph office to wire
the troublesome Bill.
"Look around you, you lug," he
commanded. "E.J. happens to be at
the same camp as you are. I just got
a letter from him,"

More than in any past year, Play

program with a variety that has sat-

The first production this year was
enough in itself to arouse a good deal
of comment. William Saroyan, only
playwright ever to receive both the
Nobel Prize and the New York Critics'l
Award for a play, presented his novel
"Jim Dandy" to over 50 members of
the National Theatre Conference for
production. The local drama group

Sulfite IProcesses
Ii Detroit Factory
A plant trip through the Detroit
Sulfite and Paper Company, and the
Michigan Alkali Company at Wyan-
dotte is being planned by the campus
American Institute of Chemical En-
gineers branch for Saturday, April 4.
As this is probably one of the last
plant trips to be allowed during war
time, the AIChE has secured special
permission for a limited group of 35
students to make the tour. The ce-
ment and dry ice plants will be vis-
ited at Wyandotte, while the entire
sulfite process in Detroit will be seen.
As the list of students is nearly
complete, Bill Collamore, '42E, pres-

Hart, was the next on the program.
Revived from the summer season to
take the place of Elmer Rice's "Flight
to the West" which lost significance
when the war broke out, "George
Washington Slept Here" served to
satisfy those who prefer comedy.
The musical angle was not ignored,
as Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana"
and Mozart's "The Impresario" were
offered under the joint auspices of
the Department of Speech and the
School of Music.
And lastly, an old-style melodrama
of the helpless-heroine brave-hero
category, will complete this varied
program when "Under the Gaslight"
comes to the boards of the Mendels-
sohn Theatre next Wednesday.
Tickets for this last production of
the winter group will go on sale at
the box office at 10 a.m. Monday.

RAF Planes
Widen Attacks
On Axis Points
LONDON, March 26.-)(A")- The
RAF at dusk tonight completed 36
hours of the heaviest and most suc-
cessful fighting it has ever had out-
side England, spreading its work in
attack and defense from western
Germany to the British Mediterran-
ean stronghold of Malta.
Taking quick advantage of a sud-
den improvement in the weather,
hundreds of British bombers blasted
the industrial Ruhr Valley last night
in one of the heaviest attacks yet
made on Germany, and they flew also
over France and scouted Italy.
Yesterday in a battle ranking at
the top of all the many engagements
fought over long-besieged Malta, the
RAF in defense destroyed or dam-
aged 30 German dive-bombers-at
least half of the attacking force.
Then this afternoon without let-
up the fliers of the bomber com-
mand, escorted by fighters, attacked
enemy shipping at the German-held
French port of Le Havre.
Eight German fighters were re-
ported shot down in the Le Havre
sweep, with two British losses.
