Comedy Will Go,
To Army Camp
George Washington Slept
Here' Will Be Given'
At Request,_Of Soldiers
Plans for taking the dramatic pro-
duction "George Washington Slept
Here" to Camp Custer Feb. 20 and 21
were announced yesterday by Miss
Ethel McCormick, social director of
the League.
Miss McCormick added that the
soldiers have been asking that the
show go out there for a long time,
but it had not been possible until.
The Kaufman-Hart comedy has
had a wide showing in Ann Arbor,
having been presented last summer
by the Michigan Repertory Players
and last month by Play Production
of the Department of Speech to audi-
ences totalling about 5200.
The original crew of 17 will leave
very early Friday to set up the show
in time for a dress rehearsal in the
The cast of 20 will not arrive until
early afternoon. Both will return to
Ann Arbor Friday after the evening
performance and go back to the camp
Saturday afternoon to give a second
performance that night.
The showings will be given in the
USO Theater in Augusta, just outside
of the camp. United Service Organi-
zation committees both in Ann Ar-
bor and Augusta will sponsor the trip
and the performances which will, of
course, be given without admission

Student Assistants Give Advice
To Jordanites On Dating, Study

This statement by Marge Hall, '45,
one of the freshmen living in Jordan
this year, characterizes the senti-
ments of all Jordan freshmen on the
value of student assistants.
According to a definition by Miss
Esther Colton, house director of
Jordan, the student assistants should
represent a "typical cross-section of
the campus" and must embody theI
qualities of leadership, responsibility,
friendliness, good scholarship, fine1
character and well-rounded person-I
Each assistant, who may be either
a sorority or independent woman,
takes approximately 10 freshmen un-
der her wing, attempting to alleviate

Veto Of Time
SChange Asked
LANSING, Feb. 13.-("l)-Letters
and telegrams demanding that Gov-
ernor Van Wagoner veto a bill
adopted by the legislature which
would turn back the time an hour in
Michigan poured into the executive
office today.
Although the measure declares the
time change should be effective
Monday at 2 a.m., the Governor said
he would not sign it into law by that
time, and hinted he might veto it.
He has until February 25 to decide
whether to sign the measure into
immediately effective law, or to veto

Rural Republican members of the'
legislature promptly served notice
they would attempt to override a
veto if one is imposed, but some
doubt existed whether they could
muster enough votes in the Senate.
"We've got the votes to do it,"
Rep. Maurice E. Post, Republican,I
Rockford, declared. He is a leader1
of the "slow time" bloc.
The legislature has power to over-
ride a Governor's veto of its enact-
ments by two-thirds vote of the
House and Senate.
Van Wagoner said he would delay
decision on the bill to give people
of Michigan a chance to express their
views to me and to the legislature."
He said hitherto only those who
wanted the change had been heard,
principally farmers who objected to
having their work schedules upset by
the advent of "war time" last Mon-
The Governor disclosed he was
disturbed during the night by per-
sons telephoning his home to tell him
they felt it would be "unpatriotic"
to take Michigan off war time. One
telegram on his desk suggested that
"perhaps the farmer legislators do
not know Michigan is at war as well
as the other 47 states."
The controversial bill in question
would return Michigan to the Cen-
tral Time Zone. Because of- the Fed-
eral advanced time order, this would
be the same as the time which ex-
isted before clocks were turned ahead
an hour last Monday.
Michigan Delerates
To Attend Meeting
LANSING, Feb. 13. -(IP)- Michi-
gan will send a delegation, headed by
Governor Van Wagoner, to Washing-
ton to attend a conference Sunday
which will explore further the sub-
ject of Federal supplementation of
unemployment compensation benefits.
The Governor said he was making
the trip, accompanied by a group of
legislators, because "tremendous op-
position to any such plan has de-
veloped from many states which are
not so vitally concerned as Michigan
with war transition disemployment."
"The prospects for Federal aid for
Michigan have not brightened in the
last few days," he said, "so it is im-
portant that Michigan should again
present a strong case of our needs in

Student assistants Ann McMillanI
'44, and Helen Mae Kresbach, '44, in
a recent interview, expressed their
opinions of the work they are doing.
Ann: "I've never had so much fun
in all my life. We act as general in-
formation bureaus for all kinds of
questions from "What shall I wear
to the Union tonight?" to "How can
I study Geology II?" It's very good
experience for personnel work. I ma-
jor in psychology and it has helped
me lots. The funny part of the
homesickness problem, though, is
that we have more trouble with
homesick parents than students!"
Helen: "For the first week or two.
it takes quite a bit of time, but not
after that. We handle roommate
troubles, men troubles and even
hand out aspirins for headaches. The
Quads keep our telephone buzzers
busy calling for blind dates, so we
also act as dating bureaus.
Marge Hall clinched the question
by stating: "You couldn't do -without
them, that's a cinch."
Petitions are due at noon today
and interviewing will take place in
the week beginning Monday.

Early Curtailment
Of Civilian Radio
Production Hinted
WASHINGTON, Feb. 13.-(IP)-
Predictions that all production of
civilian radio sets will be halted by
April 22 were heard today after the
War Production Board served an ul-
timatum giving the industry four
months to convert to armament
manufacture or have its equipment
and labor commandeered by the gov-
One spokesman for the Radio
Manufacturers Association promptly
declared that the quick conversion
could be achieved only if the gov-
ernment expedited the granting of
war orders to the industry.
Manufacturers' representatives
received the ultimatum from R. R.
Guthrie, Assistant Chief of the WPB
Bureau of Industry operations, and
were told at the same time that board
orders finally halting civilian output
were being drafted, with April 22
tentatively set as the shutdown dead-
line. Officials said there was some
chance the date might be advanced,
but little possibility that it would be
