War Housing
Situation in
Detroit Eased
LANSING, Dec. 16.- (P)-

Michigan Council of Defense, holding
its final 1942 meeting here today, was
informed that the housing situation
in war-busy metropolitan Detroit
would not be as serious as expected
this winter.
Raymond M. Foley, state housing
administrator and council member,
reported that the rate of migrant
munition workers had fallen below
expectation in the Detroit and Willow
Run areas.
Foley estimated that 28,000 living
units, privately built, have been made
available or are under construction inf
the Detroit and Willow Run areas and
that 8,000 additional units are allow-
able there. He said construction of


English Idea
for Post-War
Planning Given
World Union Analyzed
by Kathleen Courtney
"A worldwide organization of na-
tions united as the countries desire
rather than through compulsion is
the most popular idea for post-war
planning in England at the present
time," Miss Kathleen Courtney,
prominent English lecturer, said yes-
"The organization must be formed
with two objectives in mind," she
said. "First, it must be such as to
protect the world from future ag-
gression;tand second, it must pre-
vent an economic chaos such as
followed in the wake of World War I"
She emphasized the fact that this
security may be assured only if every
citizen is convinced that international
law must be maintained. "An inter-
national police force itself will not
be necessary if everyone recognizes
its aim," she said.
"England believes that this is a
generation of the common man," she
added," and it is the duty and privi-
lege of the United Nations to see that
the rights of the common man are
upheld in the post-war world."
Miss Courtney pointed out that
this will be possible only through very
close cooperation of all the Allies.
Charles Knutson and Robert
Krause were named co-chairmen of
next year's graduate business admin-
istration class. Harry Schagrin was
chosen secretary-treasurer.

Hitchhikers Face New Trials
Sin Four-Gallon-a-Week' Era


Hundreds of hitch-hiking students,
polishing up their pet thumbs, fear
that this year their mooched journeys
aren't going to be so easy to get.
The men of the road with long rides
ahead seem to be facing an impos-
sible task.
On the other hand, the consensus
of opinion seems to be that if the
goal isn't too far, they will get there
more quickly by means of the thumb
than the trains and buses.
Doug Aldrich, '45E, who went via
this method to and from Detroit Sat-
urday, said that he spent a total of
only 15 minutes waiting forarides, al-
though as was to be expected there
were few cars on the road. "Drivers
seem to realize the difficulty, and
they're much more willing to pick
up hitch-hikers," he said.
Going so far as to say that thumb-
ing is even easier than before, Al Rus-
kin, '45, said that he spent only five
minutes beside the road during his
trip to Detroit last week-end. Herman
J. Hudson, '44, echoed the statement,
saying that he has had "not much

concerned, Louis Zeitz, '44E, thinks
it doesn't pay. He spent 36 hours on

in effect in the east, although before
it had started here. The trip formerly
took about 24 hours. He explains that
in his case it's the long rides that
count, and drivers aren't going far on
four gallons a week.
A sentiment common on campus
was expressed by Bob Steele, '45E,
who said that he had taken it for
granted that thumbing had become
futile. Most of the fellows he knows,
he said, had "given up without try-

P-Bell to Reopen

If Santa Claus can prove he is 21,

zel Bell, will serve him the first stein

Commission announced yesterday

sion. will be lifted on Dec. 24-the
