TILE MICHIGAN DAILY
Will Be Given
By Dr. Snyder
Nationally Famous Scholar
Noted For Contributions
In Studies Of Genetics
One of the leading students of hu-
man genetics-Dr. Laurence H. Sny-
der of the Ohio State University
College of Medicine-will lecture on
"Heredity and Modern Life" at 8
p.m. Tuesday in Rackham Amphi-.
Although Dr. Snyder may be ex-
pected to make reference to the ap-
plications of genetical knowledge in
medical affairs, the talk is intended
primarily for the general public. He
will clarify various of his points by
the use of lantern slides.-
The eminent scholar's chief con-
tributions to science have been large-
ly concerned with the inheritance of
human blood types and methods for
the analysis of human genetical data.
At present professor of zoology and
medical genetics at Ohio State, Dr.
Snyder recently delivered a series of
lectures to the three medical schools
in North Carolina. Since 1934 he
has served as chairman of the Com-
mittee on Human Heredity of the
National Research Council.
Dr. Snyder is the author of several
books, including "The Principles of
Heredity," and "Blood Grouping in
Relation to Legal and Clinical Medi-
The series of lectures which he de-
livered at the North Carolina schools
have also recently been compiled in
book form. Numerous of his articles
have been published in scientific

(Special to The Daily)
By ROBERT MANTHO
PLATT, Feb. 21.-Located strategi-
cally on Packard Road halfway be-
tween Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, this
little city is a hang-over from prohi-
bition and until recently was the den
for "businessmen" with a shady past
behind them-but it has sprouted
from a tluiet population of 200 to one
that promises to reach a peak of 20001
in a few months as out-of-state lab-
orers seeking work in the huge bomb-
er plant at Willow Run move in to
take up homesteads.
Shacks Spring Up
The shacks have begun to go up.
Workers are paying $45 and $50 down
for mouse-trap lots and are busy
putting a roof over their heads as
fast as they can.
Today a trip through this section
of Platt is like walking through one
of the pre-Roosevelt "Hoover Cities."
In the little city-which was not even
listed as a corporated town in the last
census-can be seen tiny store-box
shacks with tar paper nailed on the
outside and a hole punched through
the roof. Glass has been slapped on
to serve for windows and the doorway
is so low you have to stoop to enter.
Pollution Is Prevalent
Septic tanks have been put in the
front and 25-foot wells have been dug
in the back. These feed on ground
water which is saturated with the
pollution from the septic tanks and
Robert Cameron, county sanitation
engineer, estimates that 25 percent
of the wells are already unsanitary.
(The water table in the region
around Platt is high and wells do not
have to be dug very deep to strike
Dr. Otto K. Engelke, director of the
county health department, and his
staff of hard-pressed assistants are
frankly worried about the sanitation
problem developing here.
The Ann Arbor Sewage Disposal
Plant stands just across the Huron
River from Platt. What is needed is
the extension of a collecting line on
the Ann' Arbor side of the river to
run into a main line on the Platt
side. This would take care of the
sewage disposal and at the same time
eliminate use of the septic tanks
which are potentially dangerous.
Platt has two primary schools with-
in two miles of each other-Platt
School and the Stone School. Over
150 grade-school-age children are be-
ing herded into the former, which is
a one-room country school. The
Stone School is somewhat larger and
has utilized a framework building
nearby as an extension but it is still
unable to meet the needs of the 150
children attending classes there.
Schools Are Crowded
In Ypsilanti there are two schools,
Spencer and Rawsonville-both about
a mile from the bomber plant-which
are so over-crowded now that the
teachers can't be paid. The influx of
migrants has made it necessary for
these schools to hire additional teach-
ers and there are no funds with
which to pay their services.
(The laborers who are sending
their children to school are out-of-
state and have not established resi-
dence in the state. Thus, they cannot
be taxed for the schooling their chil-
dren are getting at the expense of
the state of Michigan.)

Funds Are Needed
If no community is planned to in-
clude Platt, the solution seems to be
that of building a centralized town-
ship school. To do this, funds are all-
important. But the Washtenaw
County Board of Supervisors thinks
that the Willow Run project is
strictly a matter for the townships
in the eastern part of Michigan to

agencies realize they have left every-

make the best of a bad situation.

board only need exercise the power
at hand. But it is sitting tight, wait-
ing for further developments.

to flight trainingwhen needed after
completing two years' academic work.
The remaining 45,000 men per year
will be allowed to finish two years of
college before going on active duty at

pletion of this work will mean assign-
