Dog Saves Life of Boy Trapped in Cave


Mickey, a black and white mongrel, who is credited with saving the
life of a 15-year-old boy trapped in a collapsed cave, is proudly exhibited
by his owner, Robert Harris (right). Mickey drew attention to the
plight of Fred Michaelis, 15 (center), who was covered with thousands
of pounds of dirt. The dog caused Robert and Charles Harris (left)
to investigate near their Jacksonville, Fla., home and with the aid of
neighbors, succeeded in extricating young Michaelis.
Turkish Students Find U.S.

"We are very much at home here,
for our country looks very much like
this," Ozcan Draman and Peridun
Dogu, the two students who arrived
in Ann Arbor last month from Istan-
bul, said recently in an interview at
the International Center,
They said, however, that the blind
date was something quite new to
them. "I had never heard of this,"
Draman said, "but it worked out very
well for me."
He said he was also surprised when
a man gave him a booklet containing

FM Application
The administration yesterday au-
thorized the University Radio Sta-
tion to increase the power asked in
its application now pending with the
Federal Communications Commis-
sion for a FM license from 1,00,1
watts to 50,000 watts.
The University was among the first
educational institutions in the state
to support a proposed -plan that
would create a chain of educational
FM broadcasting stations through-
out Michigan.
The change in the application ask-
ing greater power came as a result of
supplemental information obtained
at a recent meeting of FM Broad-
casters Inc. in New York by Profes-
sors Joseph Maddy and Waldo Abbot.
A meeting is scheduled in Lansing
today, called by Superintendent of
Public Instruction Eugene B. Elliot
to bring together education leaders
interested in the new program.

The trip from Egypt to Baltimore
took only 32 days. But they had
waited three months in Cairo before
they could get passage on a ship.
That three months was very difficult,
they said. "For instance," Dogu con-

his chance to come because he had
gone out for a cup of coffee when
they called him."
Before coming here they attended
Roberts College in Istanbul where
they received B.S. degrees. They are
now taking graduate work in me-

Of Gas StationI
He I he oii Monday
Residents in the neighborhood of
South University and Washtenaw
will oppose the construction of a newJ
filling station on the northwest cor-
ner of the intersecting avenues at ar
public hearing Monday and a historyN
of the lot will be presented.1
The history has been composed by
Morse D. Campbell, a resident of the1
neighborhood who is interested in1
preventing the construction of the
new station.1
The area is now a residential dis-
trict by city zoning laws and includes
the Kappa Alpha Theta, Sorosis, Chi-
Omega and Phi Delta Theta houses.
A dispute arose when A. W. Gallup,
owner of the corner lot, requested
the city council to re-zone the loca-
tion to permit construction of the
filling station.
Campbell's history of the lot re-
veals that construction of a filling
station, begun in 1928, was stopped
by the city engineer in accordance
with a setback line and driveway
agreement made in 1923, which
guaranteed that the property was
not in a class for business use. The
present zoning arrangement was
then established by the city council,
upheld in its ruling by the circuit
Petitions from persons holding
property in the area urging that the
neighborhood remain a residential
one will be presented at the hearing
Monday night.
Competition Is
Effective, Ec'
Goes to Dogs
When Professor Palmer of the
Economics Department spoke of "ef-
fective competition," he thought he
was speaking in abstractions.
But some ASTP students, over-
anxious to get to their three-o'clock
class yesterday, decided to make Ec.
52 more practical, so they, gathered
in the hallway, at 2:50 started open-
ing the door of the lecture room at
regular intervals. Prof. Palmer went
on with his lecture.
The soldiers sent a dog into the
room. Prof. Palmer tried to act un-
concerned. Even when they pushed
a second canine through the door,
Prof. Palmer retained his composure,
and was determined to finish his lec-
He finally gave up when the ani-
mals began barking, but the worst
was yet to come. As Prof. Palmer
stalked from the room with his
hands in the air, a member of the
ASTP pushed in with the remark
that he "always knew the Ec depart-
ment was going to the dogs!"
