New Liquor Law
To Be Enforced
Identification Cards
Must Be Presented
The new state law requiring all

25 to present identification cards for
the purchase of liquor will be strictly
enforced in Washtenaw County, ac-
cording to Prosecuting Attorney
Francis W. Kamman.
Although the new law provides no
penalty for violation, failure to pro-
duce a purchaser's identification card
is classed as a misdemeanor under
state law. Violation of the law,
therefore, w ould make the consumer
liable to a possible fine of $100, up to
90 days in jail or both.
Purchaser's identification cards
may be obtained from County Clerk
Luella M. Smith at the City Hall for
the price of $1. Applicants must pro-

Five American missionaries of the New Tribes Mission have been lost for more than two months in
the Bolivian Jungles. Here is the group and two other men before they started their expedition with
their equipment. Left to right: Robert Dye, Saginaw, Mich.; George Hosbach, West Branch, Mich.;

Exhibit in Arehiteeire SlI ncludes
Model (Iof World's Fair Futuraina Building

A popular conception of buildings
of the future is given in an architec-
tural exhibit of four models, designed
by Norman Bel Geddes, including a
model of the famous Futurama build-
ing, of the 1939-40 World's Fair, and
now on display in the foyer of the
architecure school.
Professor Brigham, teacher of ar-
chitectural design and in charge of
the exhibit, commented, "I think ev-
erything here is very practical for
the future. It is idealistic but per-
fectly possible. I think the Ukrain-
ian Theatre model is a magnificent
conception."
"Congestion of traffic in cities,"
he continued, "could be relieved by
separating pedestrian and vehicles
on different levels-as has been
worked out in Mr. Gedde's Futur-
ama."
Oh r1 dima y ;s0 e Ii ' o a a
which Mr. Geddes designed for the
Soviet government in 1931 when de-
signers from all over the world were
invited to enter the competition for
the Ukrainian State Theatre to be
built at Karkov. Mr. Gedde's design
combines three complete theatres, the
Indoor Theatre, an Open-Air Thea-
tre on the roof, and the Outdoor Mass
Theatre.
One of the outstanding features of'
the design of the Indoor Theatre is
the means by which crowds, when
entering or leaving, could be handled.
Facilities have been designed for un-
loading 50 automobiles per minute,
and 400 persons a minute can enter
the building and walk directly to their
seats without crossing each other's
paths.
The indoor auditorium accomo-
dates 4,000 persons, and the seats

Naval Architecture Group, V-12 med-
ical and dental students, and all
naval and marine officers and en-
listed personnel stationed on campus
have been invited to join in the cele-
bration by the sailors and marines.
Playing for the dance will be Bob

announced that additional entertain-
ment has been scheduled for the in-
termission.

are arranged in three tiers with no
balcony. It would he possible to
join the stage with any part of the
audience, so that actor and audi-
ence could walk directly onto the
stage from any part of the auditor-
mm.
On the roof of the building is an
Open-Air Theatre which could seat
2,000 persons, and which could be
reached directly from the street by
escalators on either side of the build-
ing. On either side of the open-air
theatre are two large enclosed foyers
for use in case of rain.
The Outdoor Mass Theatre ac-
comodates 60,000 persons, and the.
entire facade of the building is de-
signed as a tremendous stage. Five

BondCa mpaign
Six days before the Fourth War
Loan Drive begins officially, Com-
pany C of the 3651st Service Unit
has already collected $450 in cash.
which is a face value of $600 in
bonds.
Company CT is striving to surpass
all other companies of the Service
Unit in this War Loan Drive. During
the Third War Loan Drive, the com-
pany was in the upper half of all
the companies, but hopes to outdo
their previous record.
Each member of the company is
urged to purchase at least one $25
bond during the drive. If a member
finds he is unable to purchase a
bond, he is asked to purchase as
many war stamps as possible.
The bonds and stamps may be
purchased in the orderly room
through Lt. Samuel Reizman, com-
pany commander.

These days, "Wintry Blast" is at
his worst, so take care! His chilly
salute brings discomfort to sensi-
tive lips . . and makes them so
unsightly.
Be ready for him. Keep a handy
tube of Roger & Gallet original
Lip Pomade in your pocket. And
whenever you step out-of-doors
smooth its invisible, healing film
over lip membranes
For both men and women, Roger
& Gallet Lip Pomade has long
been the accepted relief for chap-

perform on it and be clearly visible
to the audience.
The Water Pageant Theatre model,
originally planned for the. Chicago
lake front, was designed as a series
of anchored barges in a lagoon or
lake, and theaucitortum alone could
seat 2,000 persons.
Separating this section from the
stage is a canal, permitting water-
craft to take part in the pageants.
A portion of the canal could be
roped off for 404 canoes permitting
the occupants to watch the per-
formance without landing. At
either side of the canal are traffic
towers to control the movements
of the canoes.
Also on display with the models
are books by and about Mr. Geddes,
who in Horizons comments, "We shall
awake to the fact that our present
polikaco isysemi is more medieval and
out-moded than anything else we
have. Municipal organizations of the
future are going to govern for the
benefit of the municipality, its living
and its business."
Mr. Lahti and Prof. Brigham, both
of the College of Architecture, col-
laborated in putting up the exhibit.
Women To Donate Blood
Today and Tomorrow
Women's Blood Bank will be held
from 12:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. today
and tomorrow at the WAB.
Appointments have been made by
220 women which completely fills
the quota.

Casting for feminine roles in Co.
C's musical comedy, "Bidin' Our
Time," will take place at 1 p.m.
Saturday in the ballroom of the
USO.
"University coeds cannot be con-
sidered for the show since rehearsals
and performances will conflict with
final examinations," Cpl. Hy Wol-
otsky, production manager, said yes-
terday.
"Girls from Ann Arbor are invited
to try out for the six female roles,
two of which are leading ingenues.
Of these one must be a soprano, the
other an alto," he said.
The other four feminine roles arc
brief speaking parts and will form
sections of the dance chorus and
choir. Most of the male roles have
been cast, but there are still several
small parts as yet unassigned. These
roles are open only to men of Co.
C and will also be cast Saturday af-
ternoon.
Casting will be under the direction
of Cpl. Troy R. Bartlett, composer
and arranger of the show's music.
Pfc. Chester H. Sargent will be in
charge of vocal direction. Cpl. Wol-
otsky is revising the script for the
approval of the Committee of Thea-
tre Policy and Practice.
The play will enter actual rehear-
sal sometime next week and will con-
tinue until the show is ready for pre-
sentation on the nights of Feb. 25
and 26.
WAA To Hold.
Rec-Rall i n,
Barbour Gym
In answer to demands for more
Rec-Rallies, WAA will hold the first
function of this kind in 1944 from
8 to 11:30 p.m. Saturday at Bar-
bour Gym, according to Blarbara
Fairman, '46, chairman of the fun
fest.
Rec-Rally first appeared last year
when men and women asked for a
place in which they could partici-
pate in such sports. and games as
badminton, ping pong, deck tennis
volley ball, shuffleboard, darts, and
bowling, in addition to square and
social dancing.
As a result, the WAA Board has
made arrangements to open Barbour
and Waterman Gyms for games from
8 to 11:30 p.m., with dancing from
10 to 11:30 p.m. Mr. Howard Leibee
of the Physical Education Depart-
ment for Men will sound out th
calls and a; three piece grange or-
chestra will' play for the dancing.
All servicemen, civilian men and
coeds are invited to attend, singly or
with dates providing they pay th
small admission fee. Tennis shoes
must be worn for volley ball and
badminton, although street shoes ar
acceptable for the dancing.

Contest Entries
To Be ITued
In by Jan. 15
Students, servicemen and laymen
who plan to write letters on the ques-
tion of "Religion in Our Colleges"
must have their entries in to the Con-
test Editor of The Church Society for
College Work by Jan. 15.
Two prizes of $100 war bonds will
be given to the best replies. The let-
ters are to be answers either agreeing
disagreeing with an article by Wil-
liam B. Stout, a pioneer in the latest
developments of the helicopter and
head of the Stout Research Division
of Consolidated Aircraft Corporation.
Emotional Religion Losing Ground
Aiming at what he believes to be
the obscurantism of the Church it-
self, Mr. Stout maintains that religion
which has been taught to youth is
something they are too smart to
swallow.
"The day of emotional medicine
men has passed-and the day of emo-
tional religion is almost out," he
writes. This war which is being
fought on the basis of facts versus
beliefs and opinions, is turning out
men whose greatest safety is not in
accepting man-made laws and rules
set down by some Church or another,
but in knowing facts and initiative
and responsibility, and the ethics and
morals which science enforces, he
maintains.
"If the Church expects to carry
on with what they were handing out
to youth when the war started, they
will get in return a group of emotion-
alists, a worship of tradition, and a
holding back of progress.
Youth Needs Religion
Concluding his letter, he maintains
f "The Wright brothers and their fol-
lowers, considered as a sect, have
changed the world for the better
s more than all the man-made reli-
r gions of the world to date. Youth
2 must have something or the church
z as we now see it will die. Let's no
feed men sawdust when they want
- bread!"
e Manuscripts, typed, double spaced
- are to be less than 1200 words and
sent to the contest editor of th
I Society, Bloomfield Hills. All entrie
r will become the property of the pub
e lishers, and none will be returned.

aecomhniii this job by organizing a
choral groip to give concerts, in
addition to sponsoring recitals by
local and out of town musicians.
From the first chorus, composed of
40 singers from Ann Arbor church
choruses, has grown the present Uni-
versity Choral Union of over 310
voices.
Among the artists to appear here
early in the history of the University
Musical Society was the renowned
Victor Herbert who gave a cello re-
cital in 1893.
Concerts Increased
The annual custom of ending each
series of programs with an orchestra
concert was extended in 1894 when
the Boston Festival Orchestra was
invited to give a series of three con-
certs instead of the usual one. This
was the first May Festival program
to be presented.
The other organizations who have
performed at subsequent May Festi
vals are the Chicago Symphony, from
1905 to 1935, and for the past seven
years the Philadelphia Orchestra.
