Michi gainensian
W.11 Soon Go
To Engravers
Pictures and Stories
To Give Emphasis to
Campus War Effort
"The entire housing section, pic-
turing all the sororities and fraterni-
ties, of the 1943 Michiganensian has
been sent to the printers, and we
hope to have the whole book ready
for the engravers within two weeks,"
Dorothy Johnson, editor of the cam-
pus yearbook announced yesterday.
This year special emphasis will be
given to the military and to groups
of war volunteer workers. Two pages
will picture the Manpower Corps at
work on farms, stores, and campus.
University women who have been do-
ing their part are shown working as
nurses' aides and rolling bandages.
Informality is the 'keynote to this
Ensian, and candid camera shots-
many of them submitted by amateurs
in the contest held last semester-are
found at the bottom of each senior
panel page.
We feel that the photography and
art are exceptional, and the book is
being planned to take in every phase
of campus life," said Miss Johnson
"The pages this year will have more
color and more design," she added.
Each school of the University, and
all campus organizations will be tied
up to the war effort with stories and
photographs showing what they have
done throughout the year.
As the deadline approaches, try-
outs who are willing to work on the
yearbook are needed even more since
many of the junior and senior editors
have been called into the armed for-
ces, according to Miss Johnson.

Housing at
Willow Run
(Continued from Page 1)
more than 18, furnished all drink-
ing water, he reported. There was
no organized system of garbage dis-
posal, no municipal sewage disposal
facilities, no water supply systems.
Acutal photographs which he had
taken in this area showed children
playing in rubbish and garbage
heaps; others pictured tents, tra-
papered shacks, trailers, and poorly
built houses crowded together-and
ofter with four or five privies dotting
the landscape. Wells, from which
many families received their drink-
ing water, were poorly covered.
Housing plans and developments,
while an improvement, will not be
adequate, Dr. Engelke maintained.
The "Townsite" has dormitories
which will accommodate 3,000 single
people. There are also planned trail-
er partments which will house 960
married couples, temporary dwelling
units for families to hold about 2,000
people, and a trailer coach "park" for
500 trailers.

CLEVELAND, Feb. 27.-(P)-Con-
struction =centracts to relieve the

gan were announced today by the
Federal Public Housing Authority.
The O. W. Burke Co., Detroit, has
contracted to make 'site improve-
ments and installation of utilities for

ers of the Ford Bomber Plant and
other war plants. The improvements

are to be made in the Willow Run
Townsite area outside of Detroit.

Postu'far Debts
Not To Be Patd
I, Gold or Goods
WASHINGTON, Feb. 27.- OP)-
The House Foreign Affairs Commit-
tee, recalling the international debt
problems arising from World War 1,
cautioned the nation today against
expecting repayment in gold or goods
when the time arrives for a post-war
settlement of lend-lease aid:
In a formal report to Congress on
the necessity for continuing the lend-
lease act for another year, the com-
mittee declared that "the method of
settlement by payment in gold or in
goods has in the past proved self-
defeating and destructive."
Moreover, it argued that such a
balancing of accounts among nations
after this war would seriously inter-
fere with the achievement of the
"world economic order on which the
prosperity of this country largely de-j
In glowing phrases, the committee
reviewed the part which this pation's
lend-lease, amounting already to
more than $9,000,000,000, has con-
tributed to the cause of the United
Nations, first in warding off the Axis
thrusts, then in taking the offensive.

IN LINE with the possi-
bility that Michigan may
be one of the colleges to
be used in the new Navy
training plan comes the
news that an inspection of
the facilities of the Uni-
versity was completed this
week by Lieut. D. W. Beste

Ohio State, 75% to 28%2. . .
Michigan took eleven 1sts,
one a tie for first, to

Conference outdoor champ

Wolverine entry finished
one, two, three in the mile,
two mile, 880, and 65 yard

heat. Michigan pulled up-
