Advisers Sought for
A limited response to the call for
men orientation advisers has forced
postponement of final ,plans for the
spring semester orientation program,
according to Tom Coulter, '45, chair-
man of general orientation.
To date only 70 per cent of the
men needed have signed up with the
Union orientation staff,according to
Coulter. To insure .a complete pro-
gram and a proper introduction of
the campus to incoming freshmen
and transfer students a full staff is
needed, he stated.

orientation program as advisers are
asked to call from 3 to 6 p.m. today
in the Union Student Offices.
The program will begin on Feb. 3
and last four days. The orientation
period has been shortened in keeping
with the speeded up academic pro-
gram of the University.

Committee (of which Woodruff is a

new tax bill, the Michigan representa-
tive said he would press for this prin-
Woodruff said, however, that he

man's pay and not on any income he
may have from investments and other
If the committee doesn't exempt
servicemen's pay, Woodruff told
newspapermen, he would seek to re-
vise present tax laws so that the wife
of a serviceman wouldn't be held re-
sponsible for any income tax liability
for a deceased husband.

on Proposed Change of Time
'Judge' Seeks Remedy
for Michigan Paradox,
Appeals to President
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13.--()-Al-
though the war is his first interest,'
one of the initial domestic problems
Senator Homer Ferguson (R.-Mich.)
is tackling in Washington pertains
to his own state, particularly to the
The former Detroit jurist, who is
still "Judge" to his friends, and says
that as it makes him feel at home he
doesn't care if it sticks, is finding in
his new job in Congress something
of the atmosphere of the courts. In
fact, he has been named to the Ju-
diciary Committee, customarily made
up of lawyers.
Labor Shortage Complaints
As the result of the discontinuance
of the WPA, a paradoxical develop-
ment has been discovered by the
Senator in Northern Michigan. He
gets scores of letters deploring the
plight of idle WPA workers and other
scores complaining about a labor
Senator Ferguson asks, why can't
local governments and organizations
find jobs for unskilled workers, many
of whom are qualified to do farm
work? He believes that many former.
WPA workers could earn a living
Somewhere in the war effort.
He said he has received appeals
from the Upper Peninsulafor action
to help former WPA workers, and he
has referred the matter to the Presi-
dent. He doubts, however, that the
program would be changed.
Farm Work Possible
"I wonder," the Snator said, "if
it would not be possible for many of
these men to find work on the farms
of Northern Michigan, as I am get-
ting letters from the state 'deploring
the shortage of farm labor. Such. a
result could probably be :brought
about through the various farm or-
ganizations 'in Michigan."=
Ferguson doesn't believe. domestic
questions can be forgotten,. and, he
reasons that most of them- are con-
nected directly with the war.
He recognizes a current -need for
broad governmental powers,' but on
the other hand, he suggests that

In Stage Door'
LANSING, Jan. 13.- (P)- On the
basis of testimony presented to a
joint House-Senate Committee hear-
ing today, the law-makers must de-
cide whether a plan to turn Michigan
clocks backward one hour will harm
munitions production more than it
will aid farm production.
That was the issue presented at a
hearing on the most controversial is-
sue now before the legislature.
Committee Awaits Evidence
The committee recessed until Mon-
day at 4 p.m. to allow Detroit city
officials to present more evidence,
but Councilman Henry S. Sweeney
intimated he could see the law-mak-
ers already had made up their minds
to effect the change.
Peter Revelt, representative of the
regional office of the War Production
Board, asserted a return to slower
time would hamper war production
by dislocating "fine coordination" of
control between the southeastern
Michigan war production "arsenal"
and eastern industrial and govern-
Revelt declared munitions produc-
tion in Detroit, Pontiac and Flint now
is geared so minutely to the orders
of officials in Washington and with
steel production in Pittsburgh,
Youngstown and Canton that any
dislocation will have bad effects on
production. He said it has taken a
year to achieve that coordination.
"The government has asked the De-
troit industrial area to increase its
manufacture of munitions from $7,-
000,000,000 last year to $14,000,000,000
this year-one sixth of, the national
production, and that will require the
utmost of fine cooperation with the
East," Revelt asserted.
He said the WPB appreciated the
dislocations War Time caused on
farms but believed the Michigan in-
dustrial production was so much
greater in proportion to its food pro-
duction that it should be given pri-

Rockford, was chosen to introduce
the measure for Governor Kelly, who
mentioned his desire for creation of
such a position in his message to the
Rep. George N. Higgins, Ferndale
Republican, moved meanwhile to
launch an effort to strip the Dem-
ocratic-controlled State Highway
Department of its constitutional
control of weight and gasoline tax
revenues. He introduced a joint
resolution proposing that by con-
stitutional amendment, the legisla-
ture be placed in control of all but
a fixed portion of highway reve-
nues which would be earmarked for
road maintenance and improve-
ment, and be given authority to
allocate portions of the gas and
weight tax revenues to a sinking
fund to pay a soldiers bonus to men
now in the armed forces.
