own previous concert record by ap-

she sailed on her first visit to Ha-
waii for a series of recitals, and re-
turned to the United States in time.

the East, such as New York's Lewis-
ohn Stadium and Philadelphia's

spectacular tour, than the following

city, Philadelphia, confer upon her
the $10,000 Bok Award. Not long af-

Of the cadets interviewed by the ex-
amining board, all but eight were
eliminated. From the eight cadets,
four were selected for commissions

Charter, which, Dr. Schuman de-

DETROIT, May 3.-Detroit's first
practice blackout Sunday night, from
where this reporter viewed it, was a
con'Dlete success, although the savoir
faire was missing because street
lights were not put out.
Sitting in a bus on Michigan Ave-
nue outside of Dearborn in darkness
-a lone street light the only excep-
tion-reactions of .the passengers
ran through a maze of emotions.
Bus Is Flagged
It all started dramatically enough.
The bus was flagged immediately
after the sirens sounded by a police
officer waving a flashlight. Thebus
pulled over to the side of the road
and the lights were switched off.
For fifteen minutes we sat watch-
ing the police and air raid wardens
halting cars and trucks. The eeriest
sensation was provided by the police
cars which cruised with lights out up
and down the road looking for signs
of illumination.
Civilians Are Quiet
On the bus, some of the people sat
quietly, looking at the darkened
houses. Others simply giggled and
stage-whispered their intense an-
noyance at being held up. A few
people lit cigarettes, and mutterings
of "he ought to be fined" ran through
the bus.
Some of the people-against regu-
lations-got out and walked around,
but the air raid wardens were too
busy spotting cars to bother with
them. But over all the laughing and
talking there was a tense and nervous

clear signal at 10:15 sounded 'like a
five-alarm fire. The immediate re-
sponse was a tremendous burst of
light up and down the road. At least
a hundred cars appeared as if they
had been dropped from the air with
the all-clear, and the gas station on
our right was a complete surprise.
The bus driver climbed in and
turned on his lights, shifted into
first, and we started moving. The
odd sensations wore off when we
reached Wayne and saw the houses
with lights burning in all the win-

Prof. A. H. White, of the Chemical

the urgent need for trained engineers
at a regional meeting of 'the Society

Professor White, as national chair-

Michigan seems to have little reason
at this time to fear a shortage of
