Giant Slipstick
May Be Priize
At Crease Ball
The rumor that ruthless law stu-
dents-kidnappers of the eight-foot
Slide Rule Ball slide rule on Friday-
intend to raffle it off at their own
Crease Ball on May 1 yesterday fan-
ned the flame of a fast growing engi-
neer-lawyer feud as revenge-hungry
engineering vigilantes roamed the
campus in futile search of their em-
Speaking for the engineers, Ball
chairman Burr J. French, 142E, de-
clared thatu"Ifrthe slide rule isn't re-
turned before May 1, there just won't
be any Crease Ball this year!"
That prediction took on a dditional
ominous significance with the an-
nouncement by engineering senior
class president, Ted Kennedy, that
the engineers' annual senior class
picnic would be held May 1.
Still organized only informally, the
vigilantes yesterday searched a law
quad kitchen in response to a report!
that the rule was hidden there, and
then combed two law fraternity
houses, but without success.
In spite of all precautions taken to
avoid a recurrence of the thefts of
past years, marauding lawyers broke
into the Union Ballroom shortly after
6 p.m. Friday, lowered the slide rule
through a Ballroom window and
made off to the law quad with their

ish barristers then sent a special mes-
senger to the Slide Rule Ball carrying
the slide off the rule and a telegram
saying "Deepest sympathy in your
great loss; if there is anything we can
do don't hesitate to call on us. Signed,
The Lawyers."
It was not a slide rule-less Slide
Rule Ball, however. Quick-thinking
engineers borrowed a smaller six-foot
rule from Col. H. W. Miller of the
engineering drawing department for
use at the dance.
The lawyer who purloined the rule
was hanged in effigy at the Ball as
an example of what might happen
to any of the culprits who are appre-
Avukah Seminar
To Be Held Today

lems and conflicts of the Jews, "Jew-
ish Realities," will be the topic of a
seminar sponsored by Avukah, stu-
dent Zionist organization, at 2:30
p.m. today at Hillel Foundation.
The foundation of a Jewish army
in Palestine will be advocated by
Philip Slomowitz, editor of the De-
troit Jewish News. This question has
been discussed by the British govern-
ment and Zionists since the begin-
ning of the war when Jewish citizens
of Palestine announced their eager-
ness to begin such a venture.
Power politics of the Near East will
be analyzed by Prof. Preston W. Slos-
son of the history department, in a
second speech.+

Brazil Arrests
Disguised Jap
RIO DE JANEIRO, March 28.-0P)
-Two Japanese naval officers posing
as agriculturists were arrested at the
port city of Belem and large caches
of Japanese arms uncovered today in
the interior state of Sao Paulo, hot-
bed of fifth columnists, by Brazilian
authorities pressing a nationwide
drive against Axis subversive activi-
The Japanese, identified as Iossio
Yamata and Krota Ushi, were found
in possession of their officers' uni-
forms, photographs of ships and stra-
tegic Brazilian developments, maps
and spy reports. Arresting officers
said they long have been carrying on
espionage around Belem, strategic
coastal city at the mouth of the
Amazon River.
The hidden arms and a large quan-
tity of propaganda were seized in
Sao Paulo just a week after disclosure
of Japanese fifth columnist plans for
conquest, first of that rich state and
finally all Brazil.
This haul was made in a raid of
a huge Japanese farm, described by
authorities as the nerve center of the
Japanese nucleus in that inland re-
Even before today's raid the re-
moval of Japanese from strategic Sao
Paulo areas was under way. The first
were cleared away from the vicinity
of the explosives plant of the Nitro-
chemical Company, biggest munitions
factory in South America which now
is turning out supplies exclusively for
the Brazilian Army.

Anold-fashioned hair-raising mel-
odrama will be the next and final
feature of Play Production's winter
bill as the drama group presents
Augustin Daly's "Under the Gas-
light" Wednesday through Saturday
in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The play is similar to the old-style
dramas in which the helpless heroine
is thrown in rivers to drown or tied
in a stationhouse while her brave
hero is tied to the railroad tracks on
which a train is approaching.
However, the melodrama is super-
ior to many of these old-time stories,

for Daly had a flare for comedy such
as is used on the legitimate comedy
stage today., h

Play Production, is in charge of the
presentation. Robert Mellencamp is
