To Hold Danc
'Log Drive' To Be Tomorrow
At Barton Hills Country Club
The Log Drive, annual informal
dance sponsored by the Forestry Club
for students of the School of For-
estry and Conservation, will be giv-
en from 9 p.m. to midnight tomor-
row at the Barton Hills Country
Club, Jim Snodgrass, '43F&C, pub-
licity chairman has announced.
General chairman for the affair is
Chet Ewing, '42F&C, Sam Bellanca,
'42F&C, is finance and ticket chair-
man, Bob Hauser, '42F&C, will take
care of transportation and programs
are under the direction of Al Yor-
man, '42F&C, and La Mont Engle,
Phil Bushe and his orchestra have
been engaged by Dick Kennedy,
'42F&C, and his committee to furnish
the music.
Because the dance is given for the
entertainment of forestry students

gross expense, rather than proceeds,
will be contributed by the club toward
the Bomber Scholarship Fund.
Tickets are on sale to forestry stu-
dents only, at the Forestry School.

Favorite For Biking

Senior Ball Car
Returned; Tires
Remain Missin
The return of the Senior Ball's
grand lottery prize, the battle-scarred
"automobile" in which the winning
couple will attend the Ball, yesterday
brought to a head the anti-Ball
movement on campus, though word
was received saying that the tires
were being held for ransom.
"We have your tires safe," the ran-
som note read. "If all plans for the
Senior Ball of 1942 are immediately
abandoned, they will be returned to
you unharmed. Otherwise they will
meet with a horrible fate."
Returned to a parking place be-
hind the Chi Psi house as mysteri-
ously as it disappeared from behind
University Hall early Tuesday, the
car was first discovered by its owner,
Bob Sumierhays, '42E, early yes-
terday morning.
Admitting that it may have been
returned earlier, Summerhays report-
ed that he had looked out previously
and seen a pile of junk, but that he
might have actually seen the car in-
stead, and thought it was a junk pile
in the excitement.
Even as Senior Ball committeemen,
led by chairman Tom Williams, '42E,
prepared to trace the ransom note,
official spokesmen for the College of
Engineering intimated that the law-
yers were behind the abduction.
"It is known that the lawyers are
bitter over our recovery of our patron
Slide Rule," their report stated, "and
it is conceivable 4hat they gave vent
to their predatory tendencies by
stealing the car."
Although still refusing to divulge
any information which might be of
value to the culprit or culprits, Wil-
liams did admit that 5,379 suspects
are being watched constantly, and
seemed confident that the case would
be broken within the next few days,
maybe even before the grand lottery
drawing at 6 p.m. Saturday.
A close check-up of the car proved
that everything but the tires are in-
tact, Summerhays reported, although
the starting rope (the car is equipped
with an outboard motor) was broken
and would have to be replaced before
the Ball night.
PORTLAND, Ore.-(AP)-"When you
get along toward middle age a check-
up is a good idea," said Mrs. Kate
Gage, 110, as she went to a hospital
today. Attendants pronounced her fit
as a fiddle.

Government Proposes Methods
Of Improving vilian Economy

Patriotic students are going to have
to spread their butter a little thinner
and shop a little harder for practical
wardrobe purchases, according to the
latest bulletins from the United
States Government.
Some of the changes which have
been enumerated should be a defin-
ite help to the health and pocket-
book of the student who heretofore
has felt the need of a chocolate bar
every whipstitch and who has thrown
away stockings at the first sign of
a hole or run.
Substitutes Suggested
For instance, the government sug-
gests substituting dried fruits for
candy, since they contain all the
necessary sugars and a good supply
of vitamins that refined sugar and
chocolate cannot give, as well as
insuring plenty of needed roughage
needed to supplement our universal-
ly bland diet.
In clothes it will be a good idea to
mend runs and worn spots as well as
investing in a pair of cotton stock-
Education Roundtable
Will Be Tomorrow
Dean J. B. Edmonson of the School
of Education will speak on the topic
"Federal Aid to the Youth Program"
at the annual Edwin L. Miller Round-
table, tomorrow in the New Rackhiam
Memorial Building. Detroit.
The roundtable, which is held in
the spring and fall by principles of
southeastern Michigan high schools
and professors of secondary educa-
tion, will take place at a luncheon
meeting. Other Michigan men who
will attend include Dr. George E.
Carrothers, professor in the educa-
tion school and chairman of the
Bureau of Cooperation with Educa-
tional Institutions; Ira M. Smith,
registrar of the University, and Prof.
Raleigh Schorling, of the education
SEATTLE.-(P)-Chief storekeeper
W. F. Burnett is the public relations
officer for the Navy recruiting sta-
tion, where rivalry with the other
services is friendly but nonetheless
That's why Burnett was an un-
happy man when he saw a picture of
two boys and a pretty University of
Washington coed displaying an Army
Air Corps recruiting poster.
The girl was Burnett's daughter,

ings. They're good for wear at home
if your vanity outweighs your patrio-
tism, and the time will probably
come when silk will be worn Sun-
days only, if then.
Other private economy measures
are to unravel old sweaters and skirts
and save the wool to knit into some-
thing else, watch the moths in your
closet and put all your old clothes
into condition. Those old shoes that
are gathering dust in a corner can
be repaired or given away to someone
who needs them.
Save -Electricity
Saving electricity is a real problem
in dormitories and houses where hall-
way lights and corner lamps have to
be on all the time; not to mention
irons being constantly heated and
left on and radios blaring hours on
end. When you're not listening to
the radio, turn it off. Try to do your
pressing all at once to eliminate the'
terrific waste that is entailed in heat-
ing and reheating.
Last but not at all the least, may
it be suggested that you try to get
out of debt to the obliging merchant
who is carrying the cost of that ir-
resistible little suit you bought and
put on your charge account. Try
to keep ahead of your pocketbook.
These are emergency times, and a
nation of people who are always using
up their reserves cannot put out the
extra effort'that crises require.

German Club Votes
To Donate To Fund
The Gernhn Club, holding its final
meeting of the term last Friday,
voted to donate 10 dollars to the
Bomber Scholarship Fund.
The club, which met as an infor-
mal picnic group in the Arboretum,
decided to suspend election of offi-
cers until it could be determined
whether or not its activities would
be continued through the summer
Similar to those of other campus
foreign language groups, the activi-
ties of the German Club include var-
ious social and cultural functions.

Governmental priorities and the
advent of spring weather have made
bicycling increasingly important this
year. Just the thing for riding to
work or to class; or for wearing on
a "bike hike" or on a picnic are these
gabardine culottes which are avail-
able in all of the newest colors.
Those in pastel are suitable for class-
room wear and the darker shades of-
fer the added advantage of not show-
ing the dirt. With their narrow lea-
ther belts and careful tailoring, these
culottes present as pleasing an ap-
narance as the best of skirts.
