Street Closing
For Building
Asked by U'
City ("illci Petition
Requests Vacancy for
Post-War. Construction
A petition has been presented to
the city council by the University
requesting that a part of Jefferson
Street be vacated for the post-war
construction of a new University gen-
eral service building.
The proposed new building, which
is planned to house the general ad-
ministrative offices and public serv-
ice units of the University, would be
erected on State Street across from
Angell Hall. The plan would neces-
sitate tearing down Morris Hall, the
Colonade, the Knit Shop and the
Staebler-Kempf filling station on the
corner of State and Jefferson.
According to John C. Christensen,
a member of the University planning
board, no appropriations have as yet
been made by the state legislature.
The proposed general service build-
ing is part of a building program re-
quest which will be carried out im-
mnediately after the war, subject to
legislative approval.
The plan provides that Jefferson
Street be closed between Maynard
and State and that Maynard be ex-
tended south, ending at the rear
of the Union.
This building would to a large ex-
tent replace University Hall which
is described in the University report'
as a fire hazard. It would also serve
to bring together administrative and
business. offices which are now scat-
tered over the campus.
General architecture of the build-
ing would be a brick and stone ex-
terior with concrete frame.
Church Holds
Prayer Day
Responsive readings, music and a
short talk wilt be included in the
program for the annual World Day of
Prayer to be held at 8 p.m. Sunday
in the First Congregational Church.
The service, which is sponsored by
Inter-Guild, will bring together stu-
dents, servicemen and townspeople
who believe that there is a benefit
to be derived from united prayer.
Services, similar to this one, will be
held all over the world under the
sponsorship of the World Student
Christian Federation.
"Prayer and the Real World" will be
the talk given by E. William Muehl,
acting director of the Student Relig-
ious Association. Harriet Porter will
sing "The Lord's Prayer" and Robert
Dierks and Robert Waltz will pre-
sent "Forever with the Lord."

After Four Years of Nazi Oppression

Violinist Says
I Artists IHIaVe
Fair Hearing
"The present attitude of American
artists and composers in maintain-
ing that they are not getting a fair
hearing in the concert halls of the
nation is not only unfounded but
may lead to a chauvinistic attitude
in music, Mischa Elman, interna-
tionally famed violinist, said in an
interview before his concert yester-
"I think we have among us some
very fine composers," he continued,
"and I believe very much in encour-
aging them; however, their constant
complaining has become almost a
habit and they failed to realize how
much their works are actually being
performed by leading conductors.
We are too big and broadminded a
nation to permit a petty nationalis-
tic attitude to enter the arts," Elman
The names of Aaron Copland, Roy
Harris and William Schumann were
among those native composers, men-
tioned by the great violinist, whose
music was being heard again and
again by concert audiences. "While
far from all of it is good," Elman
remarked, "it is obvious that the
American composer is getting a fair
The music of Arnold Schoenberg,
whose Piaho Concerto was per-
formed for the first time Sunday,
was viewed by Elman as typical of
the revolutionary trend in modern
music. "It is highly unfair," he
declared, "to consider these compo-
sitions by the standards of the past,
but instead we must judge them on
their own merits."

Yanks Howl as French Stars
Fling Slang in African Show

By The Assiiat ed Press
ALGIERS-A French theatrical
group of some 40-odd souls has been
stranded here ever since the 1942 in-
vasion, laughing their heads off.
It is headed by a pale-eyed man
named Yvon Cazes who describes
himself as the Director General of
the Grand Spectacle of North Africa
at the Casino Music Hall.t
It is a theater with large mirrors
on each side of the stage, placedf
there presumably during the leanf
days before the war for customersl
who enjoyed looking at themselves
in the mirror when they became bor-
ed with the show.
Nothing of the sort happens to-
day. There are 25 young women in
the show, and the GI's who com-
pose the armies in this part of the
world behieve that nothing so
brightens a war as having a few
chic poules around.
Consequently, every show is a sell-
out. The military police station
themselves at the box office night
after night to keep the more impuls-
ive entertainment seekers from in-
juring themselves.
Since most of the soldiers can't
understand a word of French, it
really doesn't matter what the bill
contains just as long as the 25
juene filles spend a reasonable

Should paid memberships be re-
quired? What should the community
expect of a center?
The evening meetings will begin
with a general assembly at 7:15 p.m.
in the amphitheatre when R. C. Mc-
Laughlin, Assistant Chief, Division
of Education, Department of Con-
servation, will discuss "The Recrea-
tion Program for Southeastern Mich-
igan of the Department -of Conser-
vation." Charles E. Hendry, of the
Boy Scouts of America, follows with
"The Recreation Consumer."

lights singing risque songs and
flinging slangyTAmerican taunts
at the crowd. The girls are very1
good at the use of Yankee epithets,
and when one is used with1
French accent the house never
fails to roar.
The star of the show, in the eyes of
the GI's in any case, is Sylvia Claire,
a petite brunette whd sneaks away
from the Casino once or twice each
month and is heard in recitals at the
local opera house.

"If there is anyone who still won-
ders why this war is being fought,
let him look to Norway.
"If there is anyone who has any
delusions that this war could have
been averted, let him look to Nor-
"And if there is anyone who
doubts of the democratic will to
win, again I'say, let him look to
"He will find in Norway, at once
conquered and unconquerable, the
answer to his questioning."
So spoke President Roosevelt of a
country which in April will have
been occupied for four years. For it
was on April 9, 1940 that Germany
attacked Norway. The people fought
for 62 days, then became another
country occupied by the Germans.
Norway Fights On
But Norway has continued to fight
since that occupation. The Norwe-
gian Relief, Inc. writes "During 1940-
41, the year of Englandl's great peril,
it was Norwegian ships that brought
to that embattled island nearly half
of her much-needed oil and gasoline
supply, one-third of her foodstuffs."
The report continues, stating that
a new Norwegian Navy has been
built up which is four times the size
of the force the Qermans destroyed
in 1940, that the Norwegian Air
Force has been incorporated into the

RAF, that the Norwegian Army has
been entirely re-equipped and re-
trained since the Germans overran
Norwegians Suffer from Hunger
Examples of what the Norwegians
are suffering are given in this report.
For instance:
"All farm produce is under strict
Nazi control; no eggs, meat, etc., for
Norwegians; farmers are not even
allowed adequate feed for livestock
and poultry ... Norway is normally
Europe's greatest fish - producing
country . . . Ninety per cent of the
annual catch now goes to Germany.
Even in 1941 Reichskommissar
Joseph Terboven said, "It is a
matter of indifference to Germany
if some thousands or perhaps tens
of thousands of Norwegian men,
women and children starve and
freeze to death during this war."
Dr. C. J. Hambro, former presi-
dent of the Norwegian Parliament
and of the League of Nations, said
in a speech on Nov. 11, 1943 in De-
troit, "In Norway, today, you must
take your choice between a preferred
position, with plenty. of food, under
the Nazi regime, or the concentra-
tion camp, the firing squad and the
torture chamber.
"Despite this, the vast majority
of the people choose the cause of
freedom with all the suffering this
choice entails."
