French Club
Lectures Will
Start Today
Prof. Dunham To Talk
On French Post-War
Economic Problems
Prof. Arthur L. Dunham of the
Department of History will give the
first in the series of lectures spon-
sored by the French Club at 8 p. m.
today in the Assembly Room of the
Rackham Building.
The subject of Prof. Dunham's
lecture will be, "Some Economic
Problems of Post-War France."
He will discuss first the problem
of French agriculture, the French
food supply and to what extent
France can feed herself.
He will explain how the decrease
in the population of France may
cause a greater settlement of for-
eigners in the country than France
would want.
"France," says Prof. Dunham, "has
the biggest supply or iron ore in Eur-
ope but not enough of the right kind
of coal to use it to advantage. The
best coal is in the Ruhr and nature
has intended that the French ore go
to the German coal. Thus there is a
problem of transportation." He will
discuss' this question in his lecture
today and also the problem of finding
some way of preventing Germany
from building up another iron indus-
try for armament purposes.
Tickets for the lecture may be se-
cured from the Secretary of the Ro-
mance Language Department or at
the door at the time of the lecture.
Storehouse Has
Few Supplies
Extinguishers, Paints,
Tools Not Available
"With many materials covered by
priorities or off the market entirely,
the Storehouse is finding it difficult
to keep supplies on hand," stated
O. E. Roszel, storekeeeper and buyer.
Equipment using such war mater-
ials as rubber, copper, and steel in
wiring and other electrical and build-
ing hardware has priority ratings. He
explained that the University has
been able to obtain some of this
equipment for essential maintenance
and repairs on the campus.
High priority and requests for con-
struction is necessary for any build-
ing during war time. The plans for
the additions to the automotive lab
and ROTC building had to be re-
Ylewed by the OPA before work could
While plastic is being substituted

ranging in size from pins and light

Police oubt
Wilbert's Alibi
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Dec. 8.-
(P)-Police Chief Frank J. O'Malley
said today he was prepared to dis-
prove the alibi which red-headed
John Frederick Wilbert, charged
with killing his father and grand-
mother, claimed at Memphis would
show he was not in Michigan when
the shooting occurred.
Witnesses here, O'Malley said,
were ready to testify they saw the
20-year-old Wilbert in Grand Rapids
at 2:30 p.m. of the day that Fred C.
Wilbert, 52, his father, and Mrs.
Minnie Wilbert, 77, were slain.
At Memphis, where he is held for
return to Grand Rapids, Wilbert said
in an interview that "I was in Ko-
komo, Ind., and I have friends to
prove it."
O'Malley said here that any state-
ment Wilbert might make, even a
complete confession, could not be
entertained under the law because
the youth is an escaped inmate of a
mental institution.
