Center To HearI
Dr. Hobbs Talk
On Jap Islands
Professor To Discuss
TIruk, Oilher Mandated
South Pacific Bases
Dr. WiMiA H. Hobbs, professor
emeritus of geology, will discuss Truk
and other Japanese mandated islands
in the Southwest Pacific at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday in the International Center.
In 1921 Dr. Hobbs made a trip
to these islands with the purpose
of studying the growth of moun-
tains. He was permitted to use a
United States mine-sweeper for part
of the trip and His Imperial Japan-
ese Majestiy's cruiser "Yodo" was
dispatched to take him to Truk.
During the cruise the ship met a
typhoon and because of certain de-
fects in her construction she was un-
able to run away from it. Writing
later of this Dr. Hobbs said, "To this
faulty construction of the 'Matsu-
yama Maru' I owe one of the most
interesting and thrillingexperiences
of my life, for few craft have gone
through a typhoon and survived."
During the visit Dr. Hobbs had an
opportunity to observe the islands
closely where he took a number of
pictures. He said yesterday that
Truk has the same weakness as
Pearl Harbor: the harbor entrances
are very narrow. He said that he
will show Sunday how Truk is dif-
ferent from any other group of is-
lands.

the Benedictines atop Mount Cassino in Italy which was battered to
destruction by tons of blockbusters heaped on the religious and cultural
landmark by American Flying Fortresses. The Allies were forced to

made it a bristling fortress. -Associated Press Photo

To Lecture on
Mathematics
Prof. Claude Chevalley of Prince-
ton University, here as the Alexan-
der Ziwet Lecturer in mathematics,
will speak on "Local Class Field The-
ory" at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow in Rm.
3011 Angell Hall.
Winner of the Frank Nelson Cole
Prize in the Theory of Numbers,
prize awarded by the American
Mathematical Society every five
years for the most outstanding con-
tribution in the field during the
period, Prof. Chevalley has also pub-
lished several papers in mathemati-
cal journals.
Prof. Chevalley was born indNor-
way and received his higher educa-
tion in France, where he attended
the famed Ecole Normale Superieure.
He wrote his doctoral thesis while
serving in the French army, and was
an active member of the young
French mathematical group which
has had tremendous influence on
the development of modern mathe-
matical thought.
The Institute for Advanced Study
at Princeton invited Chevalley to
come to this country, and in the fall
of 1939 he became assistant professor
at Princeton.
Tomorrow's lecture is the final
lecture in the series of three on field
theory. The second series on "Inter-
section Theory in Algebraic Geome-
try" will be given Monday, Wednes-

special training in religious leader-
ship.
Edward W. Blakeman, counselor in
religious education, pointed out that
junior or senior civilians whio plan
to follow the Degree Program should
consult him in Rm. 215, Angell Hall.
Listed on the Program are 54
courses in seven departments, includ-
ing English, history, psychology, so-
ciology, language and philosophy.
During the past century the Uni-
versity has graduated an average of
five students per year from the Pro-
gram. More than 450 have become
foreign and national missionaries as
well as teachers and YMCA, YWCA
leaders.
At the outbreak of the war there
were 67 University graduates working
in China. Included among this num-
ber were leading educators, three of
whom were Barbour Scholars here.

Editor's note: This is another ad-
venture of Mitchell Bomber, micro-
scopic airplane who is building the
Michibomber carnival, which will take
off Saturday, March 11, in Waterman
Gymnasium. Mitchell, when we last
saw him, was fighting his way out of
a sponge during carnival practice at
the Delta Gamma house.
Mick felt a terrific jar and he shot
out into the open air again. The
sponge had found its mark on the
face of a Delta Gamma, who was
just getting used to having sponges

Winter weather brings harsh
treatment to sensitive lips But
with a tube of Roger & Gallet
original Lip Pomade in your
pocket, you can laugh at "Sloppy
Sleet".
Just smooth on Lip Pomade's
invisible, soothing film and defy
the climate. There's no safer,
sorer protection against painful
chapping and cracking.
Stop at any drug store and ask
for the handy pocket tube

thrown at her in preparation for the
Michibomber.
Sponges were still flying through
the air, so Mick zipped out through
the weather-stripping and headed to-
ward 906 Sylvan, where Dorothy
Tamura, '44, formerly of Pearl City,
Oahu, Hawaii, was practicing a hula
number for the carnival.
As soon as Mick caught sight of
Dottie he went into a tailspin and
nearly crashed, but pulled out of it
in time and landed on a picture wire
to watch the act.
It didn't take Mick long to give
Dottie his most enthusiastic OK, and
he set out toward another \carnival
participant.
Iloss To Give
Concert Tonight
Finney 'Duo' To Be
Highlight of Program
Prof. Gilbert Ross, violinist, ac-
companied by Miss Helen Titus,
pianist, .will appear in a faculty
recital at 8:30 p.m. today in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Featured on the program is Ross
Lee Finney's "Duo for Violin and
Piano," which is being played for
the first time in Ann Arbor. Written
in 1943 and dedicated to Prof. Ross,
the four parts of the composition are
titled "Song," "Dance," "Comment"
and "Conclusion."
Speaking of the composition, Prof.
Ross said, "The music has a strong
rhythmic quality, and a certain
American flavor that contrasts
sharply with the cosmopolitanism of
western European writers. Finney
writes in a fairly advanced idiom, but
his work is quite different from the
style popular in the early 1920's."
Prof. Ross, formerly Finney's co
league at Smith, joined the music
school faculty at the beginning of
this term. He is also director of the
newly organized University String
Orchestra.
Tonight's program, in addition to
the "Duo," includes Tartini's "Con-
certo in D minor;" Caporale's "Ada-
gio;" Scarlatti's "Sonata in E ma-
jor;" Mozart's "Sonata in E minor,
(K. 304); Franck's "Sonata in A
major;" Szymanowski's "La Fontaine
d'Arethuse" and DeFalla's "Ritual
Fire Dance."

. . .don' leave
lights burning wastefully!
It's so easy to turn on a light in an un-
occupied room or a clothes closet or the
attic of your home - then forget it. And
that light burning needlessly may go un-
noticed for hours.
Ordinarily this wouldn't be too impor-
tant ..'. perhaps half-a-cent's worth of
electricity wasted. But that light in the
clothes closet burns COAL. Electricity
requires coal and manpower and trans-
portation and other critical resources for
its manufacture. And today ANY waste
of electricity is serious.
The Government asks everyone to con-
serve electricity, even though it is not
rationed and there is no shortage in this
area. Save VOLUNTARILY, whenever
and wherever you can - in home and
store and office.

Michigan's youngest generation is hard
at its wartime job of learning to be good
and useful citizens. We've allcome to
think of a good education for our chil-
dren as the natural birthright of young
Americans-but building up and admin-
istering a school system as fine as
Michigan's is a gigantic task,
Well over a million students are en-
rolled each year in Michigan's schools
and colleges. There are 8,226 primary
schools, 1,002 secondary schools and 70
colleges and universities. The range of
studies runs from kindergarten games
through the three "R's" to the most
advanced scientific and sociological
research. Thousands of teachers are
devoting their lives to this work - and
to them goes much of the credit for its
success, as well as to the administrators

of each institution, to local and county
school boards, and to the Michigan
Department of Public Instruction.
We of the Greyhound Lines take the
same pride as all others in Michigan
in our State's educational achievements.
We know that our own organization is
aiding the school system both with tax
support and transportation service.
Those of us whose children are benefit-
ing directly from the splendid schooling
afforded them feel doubly proud.
In wartime even more than in peace-
time, the things that draw us all
together, that unify our efforts, that
make us good neighbors in every sense,
are the things that count most heavily,
Both good education and good transpor-
tation have decisive parts to play in
shaping the present as well as the future
of Michigan in the post-war world.
