Be Published

Articles of special interest will be
one on aerial mapping, by Edward
Young, professor of geodesy and sur-
veying, and another presented by
Ralph Metcalfe on radiant heating
in the home.
It is also reported that "rampant
humor is on the rampage" in the
form of a joke page, the name of
which has been censored by a mys-
terious character not listed in any
University Directory named Ambrose
McHi ;gin.
The Technic Staff is interested in
the response to its attempt to change
the traditional form of the magazine,
which was, the Staff believed, mainly
of interest to the southeast corner of
the campus, to one of more general
interest.

Organized Drys
Want National
Prohibition Law
Leaders Hold Prijpi
Enactment of Bryson
Bill Essential to War
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13.- (P)-
Organized drys condemned "pay-day
drinking" and "week-end sprees" to-
day as they fired the opening guns in
a congressional drive for national
prohibition.
Leaders of the major anti-liquor
groups told a House judiciary sub-
committee that prompt enactment of
the Bryson Bill to outlaw alcoholic
beverages for the duration is essen-
tial in the interest of a better war
effort.
They had the show virtually to
themselves as the committee held a
one-day public session to hear sup-
porters of the bill written by Repre-
sentative Bryson (Dem., S.C.), who
calls himself a "prohibitionist, ex-
ternally, internally and eternally."
When hearings will be held to hear
opponents was not determined, but
Chairman Hobbs (Dem., Ala.) prom-
ised an opportunity for "everybody
who cares to speak."
Several congressional opponents,
including Representative Feighan
(Dem., O.), didn't wait for commit-
tee hearings to air their views. Feigh-
an made a speech in the House put-
ting "professional prohibitionists in
a class with the saboteur." The
Ohioan is a member of the subcom-
mittee that held today's hearings
and his sentiments, along with the
privately-expressed views of col-
leagues, indicated the Bryson Bill
may be headed for a committee pig-
eonhole.
Feighan's speech in the House
charged that prohibitionists are seek-
ing to "divide the American people
at a time when unity is our greatest
need."
Liquor Statute
To Be Enforced
Because Prosecutor Francis Kam-
man announced that the statute re-
garding liquor registration cards
would be rigidly enforced in Wash-
tenaw County, the question has aris-
en as to just how the law will be en-
forced.
According to city and countylaw
enforcement officials, it is the re-
sponsibility of the proprietors of the
county's taverns to demand the reg-
istration cards of all customers who
wish to drink alcoholic beverages.
The registrees are requested to aid
in the enforcement of the statute by
voluntarily showing their cards upon
entering any establishment that
serves liquor.
People wishing to obtain registra-
tion cards may get them at the office
of the County Clerk, Louella Smith.
Council . .
(continued from Page 1)
of the English department in the
University. The election of officers
for the organization will be held
Jan. 25 at the First Metrodist
Church, State and E. Huron.
Membership Rules Given
Any religious body may be a mem-
ber of the Council, provided it ac-
cepts the constitution and chooses
five representatives to serve on the
directing committee. These mem-
bers must include the pastor, a man
and woman who are members of the
church, a religious education worker
of the church, and a young person-
either a University student, or an
Ann Arbor resident.

The Council of Churches was be-
gun more than a year ago by the
Ann Arbor Ministerial Association.
Among the religious groups repre-
sented last night were the First and
Second Methodist Churches, the
First and Second Baptist Churches,
the Bethlehem Evangelical Church,
the Memorial Christian Church, the
Unitarian Church, the Episcopal
Church and the First Presbyterian
Church.
