new post to help solve housing short-

Hull, of Grand Rapids, to the State

The governor sanctioned the re-
assignment of B. M. Davey, Liquor

Commission said it desired to split his
job in two, one part being that of a
clerical secretary and the other that
of a business manager.
He announced the appointment of
Emanuel N. Karay; Detroit, Assistant
Attorney General, to be manager of
the Detroit area of the Iquor Com-

Housing Division of the State Defense
Council. He will be paid $5,000 a year.

When an institution of higher
learning enters into the processing of
airplane parts, you may be sure that
this is a war in which everybody ev-
erywhere has a job to do.
It was disclosed yesterday by E. C.
Pardon, head of the Buildings and
Grounds Department that the Uni-
versity workshop has been process-
ing airplane engine parts for the Wil-
low Run Bomber Plant for the past
ten days.
Castings of carburetor intake
valves used in the 'engines of ) B-24
flying boats are arriving daily at the
shop to be worked on.
The University has been granted a
sub-contract to do this work from a
local defense plant which works with
the Bomber Plant at Willow Run.
Upwards of 75 castings are trucked
in every three days and an equal
number of University - worked - on
valves are shipped out.
The exact size and nature of these
intake valves cannot be disclosed, but
it can be said that they are a light
alloy casting designed to increase the
gasoline intake of a B-24 bomber.
Said Pardon when reviewing the
work, "The only satisfaction received
from doing this type of job is that
every time a big bomber flys over-
head, we have a feeling that maybe
one of our parts is riding up there.
Men of the Buildings and Grounds
department are putting in as much
time as they have available from their
regular University duties to process

these valves. To date, Pardon reports
more than 100 such parts have al-
ready passed through the University.
Chipping, polishing, and finishing
operations are performed on the
valves after which they are prepared.
for shipment.
The main reason, Pardon stated,
that we are being allowed to do this
work is that we had these machines
available which weren't being used.
"Although time is consumed in ship-
ping, much more time is saved by,
our doing what we can than for the-
prime contractors to wait to get the
vital machines."
To facilitate operations, a survey
was taken of all equipment in the
engineering shops. One flex grinding
machine was discovered which hasn't-
been used in six months, Pardon said,
and we took it down to the shop
where it is doing its part in the war
This is the first announcement of
the University taking part in actual
war production, but a Manpower
Corps announcement last week seems
to indicate more work on the way in
which students might participate.
The Buildings and Grounds depart-
ment has some machines available,
and if the right Jobs are found, op,
erations may be expanded.
"This is the kind of thing where
we all have to dig in and work," Par-
don said in an interview, "and the
more we work, the better things will

Judge Payne ains Nomination
For Republican Municipal Post


of the
and the

Justice of the Peace Jay H. Payne
won the three-cornered primary race
last night for the Republican nom-
ination to Ann Arbor's newly created
post of Municipal Judge.
Judge Payne, a graduate of the
Michigan. Law School, polled 1,614
votes to defeat City Attorney William
M. Laird, who polled 1,152. Albert W.
Hooper, present circuit court com-
missioner, was third with 530 votes.
Since Judge Payne will have no
Democratic opposition in the April
election, city officials considered his
primary victory tantamount to win-
ning the office.
The light Ann Arbor vote fell under
the pre-election estimate of City
Clerk Fred C. Perry who anticipated
4,000 going to the polls.

One-Third of
Army Doctors-
Won 't Return
CHICAGO, FEB. 15.-()-Rear
Admiral Ross I. McIntire, surgeon
general of the U.S. Navy, predicted
today that one-third of the nation's
physicians who go into the armed
services will not return to civilian
practice after the war.
In speaking on medicine and the
war at a Council of Medical Educa-
tion and Hospitals, sponsored by
the American Medical Association,
McIntire said, "We might say that
when this war is over a great number
of doctors will return from the service.
That is true, but not nearly as many
as you might think, for certainly we
will not be able to reduce the Army
and Navy below a certain point, and
my own opinion is that if we are
able to return two-thirds of those we
take we will do well."
McIntire elaborated this at a press
conference when he declared,"we, for
our own protection, will have to send
our doctors ,and our health officials
into foreign areas which are the
sources for many of the epidemics af-
fecting the whole world."
