At the State ...
Terse, exciting drama, handled
with a realism that makes it one of
the most talked of of the year, "Jour-
ney into Fear," opening at the State
today, is a fast moving story of in-,
trigue, espionage, and terror along
the fringes of war-torn Europe.
Co-starring Dolores del Rio and
Joseph Cotten the chiller is a distinct
departure from anything Orson
Welles has previously produced. In
it, Cotten plays an American Naval
Gunnery engineer, fleeing from Nazi
agents, while Miss del Rio is seen as
a worldly-wise adagio dancer appear-
ing with her partner Jack Durant in
second-rate seaport cafes.

ics throughout as the successor to
"Mrs. Miniver," acclaimed during its
record breaking run at the Radio City
Music Hall is now in the second halt
of its week long run at the Michigan.
Starring Greer Garson as a dance
hall performer, and Ronald ComaU

ish industrialist, the plot deals with
'Ranier's fight to recapture the lost
period in his life during which he

Owen are featured in a fine support
ing cast.

Ann Arbor Windbreaker Group
Qbserves Second Anniversary



A cablegram of appreciation from
the English Speaking Union in Lon-
don- wasreceived recently by theAnn
Arbor Windbreaker Group, which
yesterday celebrated the second anni-
versary of its founding.
The 'occasion, which marked the
completion of nearly 1,000 wind-
breaker 'jackets* by the group, was
celebrated by about 25 members with
a birthday cake and a patriotic pro-
granq after the regular meeting.
The' cablegram received by Mrs.
Charles'E. Koella, chairman of the
group, said: "Good wishes. Warmest
thanks from Britain for grand
achievement to - Ann Arbor Wind-
breaker Group on second birthday."
V.1.. merit badges were awarded
to Mrs. Carl. Dahlstrom, who has
completed '300 jackets, Mrs. Walter
B. Pillsbury with7 200 to her credit,
and others. .
- The latest jackets by the two wo-
men and 'two more, made by Mrs.
Orover,' C. GrIssmore and Mrs. Heb-
rard, are ,on display today at the
League. ,Mrs. Hebrard's windbreaker
was made, for Sgt. Joseph A. Groes-
beck, '39, L.S., from leather donated
by the University Library.
Each windbreaker is usually made
of thiee pounds of leather remnants

from automobile upholstery. A De-
troit motor company has given 21
tons of leather, which formerly was
sold to Japan. Mr. William Hollands,
superintendent emeritus of printing
and binding of the University Library,
saved 80 pounds of scraps from book-
binding for 10 years and is responsible
for the University donation. Several
jackets of library leather were given
to the University's hospital unit in
the Army, now overseas.
Letters of appreciation from gun-
ners, instructors at air stations, am-
bulance drivers, pilots, and men or
minesweepers, submarines, and other
ships have been mounted and bound
by Mrs. Hollands and displayed at the
mIeeting yesterday afternoon.
Showing the gratitude typical of
the recipients is part of a letter re-
ceived by Mrs. Herman Haas, maker
of the writer's jacket:
"In this time of world-wide need
for closer cooperation between the
civilized people, I feel that such a
letter (sent to him in the pocket of
the windbreaker) helps to make one
realize that' our valuable friends, thE
Americas, are not just a fallacy of
the newspapers."


Houses that will be special
guests at the surgical dressing
unit between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.
today in the League are Stockwell
Hall, Alpha Omicron Pi, and Chi
A WAA Physical Fitness meet-
ing for all athletic managers and
