Plans Are Told
By Prf. Abbot
At the recent meeting of Frequency
Modulation Broadcasters, Inc. in
New York City, attended by repre-
tatives from 14 eities in Michigan,
plans for an educational network for
the east coast states and Tennessee,
Kentucky, Michigan and Wisconsin
were discussed, according to Prof.
Waldo Abbot of the speech and radio
departments, who represented the
Commissioner Fly of the Federal
Communications Commission an-
nounced that five million FM receiv-
ers would be ready by the end of the
first year of post-war production;
the following year, 20 million addi-
tional receivers will be manufactured
and sold. Practically all radio receiv-
ing sets built after the war will in-
The meeting was attended by ap-
proximately 800 people, most of
whom were either operators of FM
radio stations or persons contem-
plating such activities. Other speak-
ers were representatives of the United
States Office of Education, manu-
facturers of radio equipment, radio
engineers and persons interested in
the commercial side of broadcasting.

Paint-daubed, hamimer v.ielding
coeds, working under the direction of
Herbert Philippi, have completed the
stage sets for Shakespeare's "The
Comedy of Errors" which will be
given by Play Production of the
speech department at 8:30 p.m. Wed-
nesday through Saturday in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Greek Pattern Used
Not only will the costumes for the
comedy be Greek in nature, but the
entire stage setting will follow a
stylized Greek pattern. In comment-
ing on the Greek motif in contrast
with the Elizabelhan which is tradi-
tionally used, Philippi said, "There is
great opportunity in working with
the Greek motif, for the Elizabethan
has been pretty well exploited by
now, and this comedy lends itself
readily to Greek settings."
The entire scheme was organized
with the idea in mind of maneuver-
ability and fast shifts as the entire
stage crew consists of coeds and the
play itself runs continuously without
an intermission, as Shakespeare
wrote it to be played. Borrowing an-
other idea from the Greeks, three
turntables are used for operating a
false proscenium so that the sets may
be easily and rapidly changed.
Painting Decorates Sets
The sets to be used exhibit a great
deal of intricate painting, most of
which was done by the stage crew
members with a final touching up by
Mr. Philippi. A general color scheme
of gold, grey, pink and blue grey was
employed and this too is reminiscent
of the Greeks, for they often painted
In discussing the procedure fol-
lowed in developing the stage sets,
Mr. Philippi said that after reading
the play the next step is to decide on
the general theme and then delve
into research before the actual work
on the sets begins. He commended
the girls on the stage crew and said,
"We have found that the girls who
have been given responsible positions
this year have been very efficient."
Mr. Philippi came to Michigan last
summer from McMurray College and
before that he was at Cornell.
Stage manager for "The Comedy
of Errors" is Jean Christian and on
the electrical crew are Marie Arons-
son, Martha Elliott and Doris Lesser.
Working on the stage crew are Th-el-
ma Davis, Jacqueline Kramer, Doro-
thy Langel and Barbara Lurie; prop- formiance of the comedy at 2:30 p.m.
erties are being handled by Margaret Saturday. Tickets may be purchased
Hamilton. starting tomorrow in the Lydia Men-
There will also be a matinee per- delssohn box office.

At our Cosmetic
Penicillin, initiated into the Uni-
versity Hospital less than a year ago,
is now being used experimentally in
the departments of medicine and
surgery, Mr. Harvey Miller, chief
pharmacist of the institution, said
Derived from a common mold, pen-
icillin notatum, penicillin's existence
was first discovered by Professor
Alexander Fleming at St. Mary's Hos-
pital, London, in 1929. However, its
discovery did not cause much interest
and consequently its many possibili-
ties were not appreciated, Mr. Miller
With the publication of certain
papers in England announcing the
results of Fleming's findings, inter-
est in the clinical possibilities of
penicillin was greatly stimulated, a
pamphlet on penicillin, published
by Merck and Company, stated. In
the fall of 1941, arrangements were
made for the production of pen-
icillin in the United States. Ameri-
ca's entry into the war shortly aft-
er, introduced the element of urg-
ency to the already aroused scien-
tific interest in the therapeutic pos-
sioilities of penicillin.
Fronm study of its, clinical reports,
it is apparent that the discovery of
penicillin is a forward step in chemo-
therapy. Penicillin has now reached
the stage at which its efficacy in a
wide variety of diseases has been
established, although its full clinical
potentialities are yet to be realized,
the pamphlet said.
The final form of this drug is a
fine yellowish powder. It is very sol-
uble in water, and is stable to light.
Penicillin has proved to be remark-
ably effective in the treatment of in-
fections produced by the staphylo-
coccus aureus, pneumococcus, hemo-
lytic streptococcus, and the gonococ-
cus. Under the guidance of the Com-
mittee on Chemotherapeutic, 500
cases of various infections were treat-
ed with penicillin by 22 groups of in-
The, pamphlet stated that peni-
cillin has proved to be highly ef-
fective in the treatment of pneu-
mococcic pneumonia. The results
obtained in the treatment of gonor-
rhea with penicillin are also spec-
Most of the supply of penicillin to-
day is devoted to military uses, only
about 15 per cent being provided for
civilian uses. It is distributed to civ-
ilian hospitals under the jurisdiction
of Dr. Chester W. Keefer of Evans
Memorial Hospital in Boston.
"However, in a few months, a great-
er supply of penicillin will be avail-
able both for military and civilian
purposes," Mr. Miller said.
