Drive Against
Accidents Will
Be Launched
Police Chief Requiess
Owners To Maitain
Cars in Good Condition
Alarmed at a threatened state-
wide increase in traffic accidents,
Police Chief Sherman H. Mortenson
issued a warning to motorists yester-
day that both State and local police
are launching a vigorous campaign
in May against motorists guilty of
driving with faulty brakes or other
defective equipment.
In urging drivers to have their cars
placed in safe driving condition im-
mediately,' Chief Mortenson pointed
out that cars are beginning to wear
out more rapidly now and should be
regularly and frequently checked by
a competent garage ,or service station
Chief Mortenson said that a recent
spot check conducted by State Police
revealed that approximately 86,000
Michigan passenger cars are in poor
mechanical condition.
The standard brake test to be used
by law enforcement officers will be
a pedal travel test. Brakes that can
be pushed to within one inch of the
floorboard without proper braking
power being applied will be consid-
ered unsafe. It should be empha-
sized, stated Chief Mortenson, that
cars that pass this test are not neces-
sarily safe as they may have many
other things wrong with them such
as worn-out linings or hydraulic dif-
Officers will hand a pamphlet cap-
tioned, "You're Only a Foot from
Trouble," to every motorist stopped
for a traffic law violation.
In addition, posters carrying the
same warning theme and urging mo-
torists to have their brakes checked,
will be displayed by garages, service
stations and parts dealers through-
out the state.
Alumni Officers
To Meet in Detroit
The Class Officer's Council, a bu-
reau of the Alumni Association, will

tomorrow at the University Club in
At the meeting new members to the
Executive Committee of the Council
will be elected and a director of the
Alumni Association for the coming
three years will be chosen.
The outstanding topic for discus-
sion will be the victory reunion plan-
ned for after the war.

Handbook Describes Religious
Counsel f or Uniformed Men

The University's role in providing
religious counsel for students in uni-
form has been described in a re-
cently published YWCA book, "A
Handbook for the Wartime Campus,"
by Benjamin Schmoker.
The University's work in providing
civilian chaplains for Army and Navy
trainees wasdbrought out in this
book. Dr. Edward W. Blakeman,
counselor of religious education,
names the ministers who will serve
with each military unit. Assisting
them are special unit committees who
meet with the chaplains to discuss
the religious needs of the group and
of individual men.
Chaplain's Duties Outlined
The major responsibilities and du-
ties of the chaplain listed in the book
include arrangements for worship
services, acting as spiritual advisor
and as a liaison person between civil-,
ians and military personnel.
As a guide to the personal religious
needs of the trainees, theubook men-
tioned a question, "If you could get
but one religious and personal issue
answered, what would it be?," that
was asked of students in a premeteor-
ological unit.
GI Questions Answered'
The two most ferquent question
were, "If God is good and also power-
ful, why this war?" and "What is the
relation of a man's belief to his tem-
per, to sex, to hatred and to Army
Other answers given show concern
with the problems of war marriages,

Speech Camp
Is Planed
E~igh I L-eek SessiOn
Will Iegi Junie 28
The 13th annual session of "Shady
Trails," national speech improvement
camp, will open June 28 for an eight-
week period, John N. Clancy, director,
announced yesterday.
Devoted exclusivelyrto the correc-
tion of speech disorders in boys from
8 to 21 years old, the camp has gained
a nation-wide reputation among ed-
ucators for its success in speech re-
habilitation. Since its establishment
in 1932, its enrollment has increased
from 4 to 60 boys. Fifty-five boys
from 21 states have already been
accepted for this summer.
Camp Is Unique
The camp, the only one of its kind
in the country, is located on an 80-
acre tract with nearly a mile of beach
on Grand Traverse Bay near North-
port. Mr. Clancy, founder and speech
clinic staff member, describes it as
"a school and clinic rather than a
recreational camp."
Boys, grouped according to age, are
in class from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
and from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.,
receiving formal training in speech
control. Out-of-class programs are
devised to combine recreation and
applied speech activities, with eve-
nings devoted to dramatics, open
forum discussions, stunt nights, af-
ter-dinner speaking and other activi-
ties involving speech.
Visits Are Discouraged
As speech difficulties are frequent-
ly coupled with nervous disorders,
one of the principal advantages of a
clinic camp is the completely new
environment the boy finds there.
Visits from parents are therefore
discouraged, with no more than one
permitted during the camp season.
Mr. Clancy maintains that the camp
has never had a serious case of home-

Post=War Architectufe To Be
Based on MobilAePopiltiiou

Prof. G. B. Brigham. of the School
of Architecture, said yesterday that
modern architecture in the post-war
period would not be an "attempt to
be different" but would be based on
the social and economic needs of a
new mobile population.
"The war has stimulated a tre-
mendous development in new build-
ing techniques for pre-fabricated
military buildings to be sent abroad,"
he continued.
"These military buildings will not
be used later for civilians, but the
principles that have been discovered
in building these defenses will prob-
ably affect civilian building after the
war," he explained.
"One phase of modern architecture
for present and post-war reconstruc-
tion is movable and mobile houses,"
he said. "A few generations ago peo-
ple were more or less anchored to the
soil but at the present the tendency
is away from this."
Mobility Demanded
"And with this tendency toward a
greater mobility of people comes a
demand for mobility of houses. Thus
social and economic needs influence
modern architecture."
"Some type of house which is cap-
able of being moved readily from
place to place is going to be in
demand in the post-war reconstruc-
tion period," he asserted.
Prof. Brigham explained that the
first type will probably be a "super-
trailer" called by some a "land-
cruiser" in which two to seven people
can live.
A second type of house, which is
iot self-propelled, would probably be
built in sections which could be
transported by truck and assembled

at the site by bolting together the
sections. The house would consist of
complete sections, as large as could
be transported on the roads, probably
eight feet by fifteen to twenty feet
in size.
Another type will be one composed
of smaller demountable sections, con-
sisting of panels and framing mem-
bers which could be packed flat and
assembled and erected at the site.
Decentralization Is Trend
"The skyscraper resulted from a
terrific concentration of people and
high land values," Prof. Brigham
remarked, "But now the tendency is
away from this toward decentraliza-
"The idea of city planning is rap-
idly gaining ground." He explained
that there will not be such a hetero-
genous growth of houses scattered at
will in the future. Sections of the
city will be blocked off for housing
expansions, schools will be systemat-
ically located, and there will be con-
trolled development.
Vroma n Appoited
President of Group
Dr. Clyde Vroman of the School of
Music, was recently appointed presi-
dent of the Southeastern Michigan
Band and Orchestra Association at
the annual business meeting held in
Birmingham, Mich.
He was formerly traesurer of the
association, which normally carries
on an active program of solo and
ensemble festivals, also band and or-
chestra festivals throughout the state.

City Engineer's office reported yes-
terday that nine No Parking signs

the city-wide campaign to recover
stolen signs.
Many more are still missing, how-
ever, and the City Engineer is again
asking all students and townspeople
who have the signs to return them.
