Bomber City' Won't Be Ghost
Town', Prof. Whittemore Says

housing already available in the
Washtenaw-Wayne county areas.
Ford, who owns approximately
$50,000 of property in Superior town-
ship, that in which Cherry Hills is
located, said that a survey had re-
vealed that Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti,
Wayne, and Inkster could with other
small communities absorb the newly
employed workmen.
Federal representative Augur di-
rectly contradicted the Ford survey.
demonstrating that the surrounding
cities were incapable of expanding
present facilities to take care of the
huge influx of workmen.
Other arguments which still raged
last night in what is beginning tc
look like a teapot tempest as the
government continues its plans with-
out hesitating concerned the site and
type of houses to be built, the social
problem involved, and the post-war
Those who had argued the infeas-.
ibility of the site were considerably
quieted by Augur's declaration that a'
water supply would be extended by
Detroit through Dearborn and that
the city would have a satisfactory
sewage disposal system. A responsible
expert on city government who re-
fused to be quoted declared, "The
preparations made by the federa.
government are far superior to those
which antiquated city governments
like Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti can be
depended upon to provide."
The size and quality of the houses
which were criticized in the Wednes-
day protest meeting of the Ann Ar-
bor city council were approved by
Professor Whittemore who said that
despite the lack of basements, the
houses-if they followed the general
housing project pattern-would prove
so satisfactory as to attract non-fac-
tory workers after the war.

costs, Augur declared that the Cherry
Hills homes would be built at about
$600 less than any private contractor
could manage.
The social considerations also came
in for discussion, as the Ypsilanti
shack town was pointed out as an
example of what would happen in
all towns in this area unless the
bomber city' was built. Already in-
vestigations of sub-standard condi-
tions are being carried on.
Principal storm center, however,
was the post-war situation which city
officials declared would bring unde-
'Afrable unemployment and eventual
iesertion to the development. Pro-
fessor Whittemore in scouting this
view declared that a temporary set-
hack would not mean the failure of
the town. If made sufficiently attrac-
tive, he added, Willow Run would
"emain just as populated as during
"he war.
Other observers poiiated out that
inquestionably the present inflated
rent levels in Ann Arbor and Ypsi-
lanti would be somewhat relieved,
and that high lot prices which now
exist will become far less prevalent.
In describing the total operations
of the Federal Public Housing Au-
thority in this area, Augur stressed
that Cherry Hills was not the only
site for new housing. He said that
1,500 houses would be built in Ypsi-
lanti by October, and that another
3,700 in Wayne and Inkster would be
^ompleted by that time. The new
zity is not expected to be ready for
occupancy until spring.
Many of the city officials remained
adamant in their opposition yester-
day. Mayor Leigh J. Young of Ann
Arbor argued that the transportation
problems involved in spreading the
workers through the area were far
outweighed by those raised by the
construction of 'bomber city,' while
Ross K. Bauer, Ypsilanti mayor, also
vigorously opposed any city west of
the Wayne county line.
Protests were many and came from
varying sources, but they were agreed
in their opposition to construction
of Willow Run in Washtenaw county
because as one observer put it, "It
would mean too many Democrats."

Capable Beginners Sought
By Navy For Intensive
Interpreters' Training
Lieut.-Col. Harold Doud of the Sig-
nal Corps, U.S. Army, will interview
students taking the University's in-
tensive beginner's course in the Jap-
anese languago today, it was an-
nounced yesterday by the Department
of Oriental Languages.
The Signal Corps representatives
will be followed by Naval Intelligence
men on May 28, the latter branch
being represented by Lieut.-Comm.
A. E. Hindmarch. The Navy repre-
sentatives are interviewing students
in the few American universities
giving courses in that language. Ap-
plicants accepted will be used as in-
terpreters and translators. or will be
placed in special training courses
with that end in view.
Special Courses Instituted
Both the Army and Navy have in-
stituted special training courses for
students who have already shown be-
ginner's competence in the Japanese
language. In the case of the Navy
an intensive course lasting approxi-
mately one year will begin June 15
at the University of California at
Berkley. Students who are accepted
will be expected to go to class three
hours and to study nine hours each
day. Upon satisfactory completion
of the course they will be given ranks
in accord with their ability and com-
petence. While in training they will
receive a beginner's minimum salary
of $25 per month. An equivalent
training course sponsored by the Sig-
nal Corps outlined yesterday by Col-
onel Doud.uThis course will also last
one year and will probably be given
in Washington, D.C.
The University's own intensive be-
ginners course will be given again
during the summer term, Joseph K.
Yamagiwa of the Department of Lan-
guages, head of the Japanese lan-
guage program here, announced. The
plan of this course is approximately

the same for the course offered dur-
ing the present semester. Students
will receive three hours of directed
classroom work each day, four times
a week. One hour will be devoted
to grammatical explanation, one to
drill work on forms and pronuncia-
tion, and another to study of the
written language. In addition, hours
will be arranged at which students
will listen to recordings of Japanese
pronunciation. The voice of the stu-
dents themselves will be recorded on
an average of once in every two
Advanced courses in the written
language for men who have had a
grounding in the colloquial, and for
those who already show a competence
in both the spoken and written lan-
guages, are also scheduled.

To Be Evaluated
Evaluation of Forestry department
faculty members and courses was be-
gun yesterday, with the distribution
of blanks to the school's 84 students.
Differing from the ordinary evalu-
ation program in that the courses as
well as the men who teach them are
being rated, this plan, as explained
by Dean S. T. Dana, is an attempt
to get student help in eradicating
faults in the teaching set-up and
thereby raising the present level of

such things as the clarity of presen-
tation, willingness of the individual
teachers to assist through consulta-

corded and adjustments made in ac-
cordance with the results.
