Coast Guardescues Two, Saves One

All-City Bond
Buying Drive
4:aiuis Employes Asked
To Join Systematic
When the city-wide bond buying
drive closes tonight, every University
employe will have been asked to par-
ticipate in a voluntary systematic
savings plan which the University is
High school seniors in their can-
vass of the city, while asking all citi-
zens to pledge a portion of their in-
come for buying bonds, will call at
homes of University employes to tell
of the payroll savings plan.
An adaptation from the highly suc-
cessful industrial savings plans, ev-
ery employe may participate in it.
The plan is completely voluntary and
even after joining participants may
revoke their pledges at any time.
By making deductions in payrolls
in multiples of $3.75 each month,
funds are obtained for the purchase
of Series 'E' war bonds. The plan
is designed to facilitate the purchase
of thesebonds without affecting pri-
vate savings accounts. Each person
designates the denomination of the
bond which he wishes to purchase
and when sufficient funds have ac-
cumulated through the monthly de-
ductions, the bonds are purchased
and distributed to the owners.
Series 'E' war bonds come in de-
nominations of $25, $50, $100, $500
and $1,000 and are not transferable.
If any University employe is missed
by the drive or wishes further infor-
mation concerning the plan this may
be obtained in the South Wing. In-
formation has been mailed to most
employes with pledge cards.
The savings plan was inaugurated
earlier in the year and the present
drive is to obtain the full participa-
tion of the University.

Professor Percival Price Plays
Dinner Mu sic On Carillon Bells

Perched in the Carillon Tower ten'
stories high, shirt -sleeved Percival
Price, the University of Michigan's
world-famous carilloneur, plays din-
ner music for Ann Arborites every,
Thursday and Sunday night on 63
tons of bells.
In the small tower room-bare ex-
cept for an electric clock and phone-
stands the carillon keyboard which
makes 53 bells boom out the tunes
Professor Price has chosen to play
for his spring season recital series.
And that's just what the distin-
guished musician does to the key-
board of the carillon . . . he booms out
on little wooden levers with half-
closed fists, using his feet to tramp
down on foot pedals for the low,!
deep sounds.
Keyboard Of Levers
The keyboard resembles a spinningj
machine. There are two rows of!
wooden levers which are connected
to small-diameter rods reaching to
the ceiling. When the wooden levers
go down, so do the rods . . . then the
bells get going and there's music.
Professor Price sits on a high bench
big enough for three people, and slides
all over it to tramp down on the right
foot pedals. When he's not using his
and the smallest could only serve as
a coffeepot.
At every quarter hour, the bells
sound the time out over the city
through a special clock-and-chiming
mechanism installed by a New York
Teaches Composition Also
Professor Price teaches composi-
tion in the music school. Behind him
is an amazing record. He received
his musical training in Canada and
Europe and his degree from the Uni-
versity of Toronto in 1928. In 1934
he was given the Pulitzer Prize in
music by Columbia University.
Since 1939 he has been Univer-
sity carilloneur here and has given
guest recitals all over Europe and the

Two seamen adrift on a raft for 12 "days stand up and wave as a
Coast Guard plane from which this Picture was made draws near
them to make a rescue. The men, Terrence J. Bradley, 22, and
Joseph Dieltiens, 43, were members of a crew of a Panamanian
ship torpedoed April 20. Dieltiens died in a Norfolk, Va., hospital.

United States. He knows the carillon
so well that he has written a book on
Right now Professor Price is in the
middle of his spring recital series. He
will continue to play at 7:15 p.m.
promptly every Thursday and Sun-
day night until May 31. At three of
the recitals he is assisted by a guest
artist, Mr. Hugh Glauser of Cleve-
land, O.
Sometimes his fingers grasp the
wooden levers and press down but
most of the time he uses his fists-
with the little finger of each hand
protected by finger stalls. When he
hits the upper part of the keyboard,
the bells tinkle. He mixes up his
movements to get a combined rhythm
out of the carillon.
Ringing Fills Room
An audience standing outside of the
Carillon Tower hears a lot of bells
I making music, but a person sitting in
the tower room with Professor Price
hears nothing but the clack of wood-
en pegs and somewhere above bells
ringing, filling the room with sound.
The 53 bells which make up the
Charles Baird Carillon cover a range
of four and one-half octaves.

CLEVELAND, May 11. -(/)-The
Army's recent raid on Tokyo showed
that Japan apparently had "no in-
ternal defense against psychological
warfare, no linking of national ef-
fort to combat panic," Col. R. Ernest
Dupuy of the War Department's Bu-
reau of Public Relations declared to-
"Some day we are going to get a
token air raid," Colonel Dupuy added.
"Its objective will be the production
of fear, panic and uncertainty in the
minds of our people. Are we going to
play it like soldiers, or are we going
to cackle and squawk on the air like
barnyard hens when a hawk flies
Addressing the National Associa-
tion of Broadcasters, Colonel Dupuy
recounted details of the Tokyo raid:
Bombed In Broad Daylight
"The bombers who performed that
task winged their way in broad day-
light, riding the radio beam of a
Japanese station which at that time
was broadcasting a little rhapsody on
the scenic beauties of Japan, nestling
peacefully in the assurance that it
could never be bombed. Suddenly he
went off the air. The radio monitor
in the bomber formation heard the
Jap announcer scream 'Enemy bomb-
ers coming! Coming fast! Many
"As the bomb sticks whirled down,
this Nip announcer kept on the job.
Screaming in high-pitched panic, he
called our shots in a play-by-play
description, noted the fires caused,
shouted casualty bulletins. Our ships
received the fullest information that
anyone could want, on their accom-
Tone Began To Change
"It was not until 24. hours later
that the tone began to change, that
casualties and damage were played
down. In the meantime we had re-
ceived from the enemy precious con-
firmation of our successes. Why? Be-
cause it was a complete surprise, be-
cause there apparently existed at that
time in Japan no internal defense
against psychological warfare, no
linking of national effort to combat
Byron Price, Censorship Director,
told the broadcasters:
"You are in actual contact with the

Japanese Psychological Defense
Shown Uready By Tokyo Raid;

enemy, whose submarines are listen-
ing near our shores." Nevertheless
the people must have comprehensive
news about the war, Price said, ap-
pealing for application of "the rule
of reason" to newscasts.
Archibald MacLeish, Director of
the Office of Facts and Figures, ob-
"We will tell you of the informa-
tion the government wants delivered
to the people. But we will leave it
to you to devise the effective means
by which the job can be done.
"It is not your antennae or your
electrical installations or your con-
trol rooms that we want. It is you-
your brains and your hearts-your
experience and your ingenuity. If it
were relying only on facilities, the
government would do far better to
pi'ovide its own facilities."
