Co. D To Give
May Musical
'Rumor Has It'
Coed Participation
Planned; Cast of 80
Required by Comedy
For the first time in six years coeds
will have an opportunity to take part
in an original campus musical com-
edy when Co. D presents "Rumor Has
It," scheduled for production in May.
There will be a meeting of all girls
interested at 2 p.m. Saturday' in the
USO ballroom.
Dean Alice Lloyd has given coeds
permission to participate, this being
the first time that a service show
has included University students. The
script is almost completed and will
be presented to Dean Joseph Bursley
in the near future for approval.
Monday Try-Outs
Try-outs for feminine roles will
begin Monday and all details as to
time, place and requirements will be
announced at Saturday's meeting.
The cast will include about 4 coeds
and an equal number of men, the
latter to be selected from Co. D.
Pfc. Arty Fischer of Co. D, who has
written the script for the show and
will be the director, has asked that
any girl who can act, sing or dance
try out for a part.
Experience Unnecessary
"Experience is not necessary," he
said. "We want as many persons to
try out as we can get and we'll guar-
antee to find something for anyone
Coeds who have any knowledge of
backstage work are also needed. Pfc.
Fischer added that they are particu-
larly interested in obtaining people
who are interested in make-up, ward-
robe, lighting and set designing and
construction work.
The show will not be a typical
Army show. Instead it has been
planned as a true-to-life take-off on
a college campus.
Flys Thro ugh
Puts Fellow Civil -Air'
Patrol Pilots to Shame
Whether there's a haze, a storm,
or six planes lost in her formation
of seven, Mrs. Carl Rufus, known' as
the "flying grandma" of Ann Arbor,.
always manages to 'end up 'at her
destination at the time expected.
Returning Monday from a ross-
country flight to Miami; Fla., MIs.
Rufus declared that yen though
the other six planes in the flight
mission were forced to. land because
they lost their " course - her "little
red cub coupe 65" came through as
The flight mission, whiih was un-
derstaken by 13 members of the Civ-
ilian Aeronautics- Patrol of Eaton
Rapids, had as its chief purpose the
training of pilots in cross-country
flying. The group, under Cmdr.
George Miller of Eaton Rapids, left
two weeks ago Saturday for Cannon
Field, Orlando, Fla. There they were
joined by Mrs. Rufus, who had left
earlier for Miami.
Most of the 13 pilots have just
receeived their private licenses, and
through this flight they gained val-
uable experience in navigating and
piloting across country, Mrs. Rufus
"When we came over the mount-
ains near Catanooga, Tenn., the lead
navigator made a mistake of a few
degrees in direction, thereby putting
us a5 miles northeast from our
course. After finding the name of
the town on the water tower, we re-

plotted our course and finally ended
up at our first stop, Cookesville,
Tenn.," Mrs. Rufus said.-
"Shortly after we took off again
I lost sight of the six planes flying
ahead of me. The air became hazy
but I kept right on. In Lexington I
tried to locate the lost planes by
telephone, but had no luck.
"The only thing that happened to
me was a forced landing about six
miles from the Fort Wayne Army
field after it became hazy and rainy.
It wasn't until I reached Eaton
Rapids that I found out the six lost
planes had landed near Cookesville
in a farmer's field. In fact, two of
the boys spent the night in a hay
stack," Mrs. Rufus said.

FCC Attacked

Rep. Miller, (Rep., Mo.), saying that

with sale of a radio station, accused
the administration today of shutting

to reveal even a small fraction of the
corruption which must exist after 12
years," he told the House, "they -will

"That Germany has not weakened
more under heavy Allied bombing
may be partially due to the fact that'
they have carried out camouflaging
of their main industrial plants on a
large scale and that they developed
this technique even before the start
of this war," Prof. Harlow . Whitte-
more, head of the Landscape Archi-
tecture Department, commented yes-

Benedicto To
Speak Tonight
On Puerto Rico
In an interview yesterday, Prof.
Raul Benedicto of the Spanish De-
partment, who will deliver an ad-
dress on "Puerto Rico and Its Poli-
tics" to La Sociedad Hispanica" to-
night at 8 o'clock in the Rackham
Amphitheatre, declared that "If Tug-
well and MunocoMarian are allow-
ed to run Puerto Rico the way they
are running it now, the country will
fall in ruins."
A graduate of the University Lay
School and an attorney in Puerto
Rico for 42 years before coming to
this country, Prof. Benedicto spoke
scathingly of Governor Rex Tugwell
and Popular Party Leader Munoco-
Condemning their policies, he ad-
ded, "They want the government to
control everything, and also want
only two classes of people-the poor
and the workers. According to their
principles there would be no weal-
Continuing in the same vein, Prof.
Benedicto suggested Tugwell's dis-
missal and immediate reversal of the
government sugar policy. "Tugwell
and MunocoMarian wish to give the
masses more land. They want to
give these people part of the sugar
lands. That is very silly. Life in
Puerto Rico centers around the sugar
plantations. If the sugar industry
disappears the livelihood of the Puer-
to Ricans will also disappear."
Prof. Benedicto commented upon
the draft situation in Puerto Rico
by a simple reference to the fact that
all possible quotas had already been
filled by voluntary enlistments.
Four Veterans Are
Appointed by Kelly
LANSING, March 7.-(IP)-Gover-
nor Kelly today appointed four vet-
erans of prior wars to membership
on the newly created Veterans State
Advisory Committee, and announced
they would meet with him March 14
concerning selection of the other four
members, who must be men of World
War II.
He appointed Leslie F. Kefgen of
Bay City to represent the American
Legion on the committee; Denis F.
Mulvahill, Detroit, to represent the
Veterans of Foreign Wars, and Vin-
cent E. Schomof, Grosse Pointe
Farms, to represent the disabled Am-
erican veterans, each to serve for
three years, and Gen. John A.
Schouten of Grand Rapids to repre-
sent the United Spanish War veter-
ans for a two-year term.

bergh, after studying German air-
craft production, reported the Ger-
mans had decentralized and dispersed
their industries into smaller buildings
located in pine forests and under-
"In our course of camouflaging in
the Architecture School, we want to
give the servicemen, who comprise
the majority of the class, some gen-
eral information which they can use,"
he observed.
"All the Army and Navy and Ma-
rine forces are supposed to have
camouflage experts with each regi-
ment whose business it is to instruct
and protect his group, but those spe-
cialized schools for training men are
very few. Since every commanding
officer is responsible for the camou-
flage of his group, it is important
that he at least have a general know-
ledge of camouflage."
When asked about the importance
of military and civilian camouflage,
Prof. Whittemore noted that "Pro-
tection of industrial plants in an all-
out war like this is, of course, just
as important as the protection of our
fighting forces, but since in this
country we are not so concerned with
the long-range bombing of our in-
dustries, more attention has been
given to military cainouflage."
He remarked that large new indus-
trial plants-have been 'built in Eur-
ope, in wooded and remote rural
areas, not as a compact mass of buil-
dings, but decentralized in numerous
smaller factories. A dozen buildings
a quarter of a mile apart each are
hard to bomb. Roads follow the
natural contours of the landscape
and buildings are so designed that
their shadows blend with the natural
shadows of the landscape.
During the semester lectures are
given to students in the course of
landscape architecture 61 by profes-
sors from other departments on
different phases of camouflage, such
as civilian protection from bombing,
adaptive coloration of animals, or-
ganization of industrial plants, air-
craft mssions for bombing attacks,
and light, shade and color factors in
