Mutual Broadcasting System an-
nounced today that starting Jan. 6
the Saturday night concerts of the
Detroit Symphony Orchestra which
are broadcast over a nation-wide net-
work will be expanded to an hour in

gium and the recent appointments
to the U. S. Department of State.
When Prof. Williams last spoke at'
the Foundation, he discussed the fu-
ture of American labor after this
war, stressing that labor organiza-
tions, due to experience in politics,
gained during the past decade, may
succeed in maintaining conditions
favorable to laborers after the war.
At this time, Prof. Williams brought
attention to the anti-labor campaign
of the N. A. M. and American ad-
vertisers organizations.
Thus far this semester, large
groups of students, faculty, ser-
vicemen and townspeople have
gathered at Fireside Discussions,
held on alternate Fridays, to hear
Prof. Theodore Newcomb of the
sociology department speak on.
"Politics and Propaganda," Prof.
John W. Lederle of the political

'Business As
Retailer I'lep:ot'Lt
Yuletide Purchasers
S Buy Aprons for Men
Hv The Associated Press
NEW YORK, Christmas shopping
reports from retail stores read "busi-
ness as usual--plus!" But a new
item has been added to the selling-
like-hotcakes list:
Aprons for men.
"I can't begin to tell you how
dreadful they are," one department
store buyer said in a most confiden-
tial confidence. "They're long can-
vas things with 'mother's helper'
printed on them. But we can't keep
them in stock.
"That should give you some idea
of the trend of the times," she added
sadly. Many other buyers predict
there will be some queer-or did they
say unusual'?-Christmas presents
this year.
"Pin a ribbon on it and we'll sell
it for Christmas," declared a spokes-
man for Macy's. "People are asking
for what they want and then taking
what they can get."'
One store held a special sale of its
"entire stock" of Canadian cavalry
battle swords and another advertised
a telephone attachment used exten-
sively in offices, as "the perfect gift
for the large family, one-phone home.
Makes the telephone as private as a
telephone booth.",
Sell Well
"They're selling very well, too," a
store representative said, adding
thoughtfully, "I guess people are a
lot more conscious of noise these
Any item that hints of being pre-
war quality hasn't a chance even to
get the feel of the counter. Bloon-
ingdale's recently advertised a sup-
ply of -aluminum roasting pans re-
jected by the army.
"I can't imagine them as Christmas
presents," a buyer said, "but people
lined up for half a block."
'Terrific Run'
Every retailer reports a "terrific
run" on the most expensive of per-
fumes, lingerie, jewelry, and hand-
bags. The luxury tax had had little
or no effect on Christmas sales.
One large department store, how-
ever, refused to push lingerie be-
cause it couldn't get high quality
goods. "Nobody's going to pick up
some sleazy underwear and say 'I
must buy this for my darling,' " the
buyer said. "So we're just trying to
skip it."
She added that apparently the
warnings about less heat for private
homes and apartments had had some
effect because Christmas shoppers
were making an "unexpected de-
mand" on fine woolen housecoats and
luxurious lounging clothes.

Proceeds from International Ball,
to be held from 8:30 p. m. to mid-
night Jan. 5 in the Rainbow Room
of the Union, will be donated to the
Emergency Fund for Foreign Stu-
In past years the Fund has bene-
fitted a number of foreign students
who, cut off from their home country,
find themselves with insufficient
funds to continue their studies. "The
war has increased the need for such
a fund," George Hall, chairman of
the Ball, said, "because the foreign
student is often a refugee from a
war-torn land."
Case histories from tle Fund's
files indicate the extent and type of
emergencies handled.
Case History
A few years ago the International
Center received a call from Health
Service. A foreign student suffering
State Planning
Field Extended
Commission Votes
For Coordinated Plan
LANSING, Dec. 21-{9P)-The State
Planning Commission today agreed
to ask the Legislature to extend its
field of operations to regional and
area planning on the grounds that a
better job of planning can be done
on a coordinated basis.
The Commission was acting speci-
fically on a suggestion from a Detroit'
Metropolitan area planning group
that the Legislature authorize a per-#
manent committee, with an appropri-
ation of $25,000, to carry on a pro-
gram conducted in cooperation with
Wayne, Macomb, Washtenaw and
Oakland county officials.
Governor Kelly, executive chair-
man of the commission, said he be-
lieved the "time has come to en-
courage area planning," and that it
would be advisable to keep legislation

from malnutrition had just been ad-
mitted to the infirmary.
The student had not heard from
his home nor received any funds.
He had borrowed his tuition, was car-
rying a full schedule and had main-
tained a B average.
Investigation revealed that he was
carrying a part-time job, but his
finances were so inadequate that he
could permit himself only 35 cents
per day for all expense-food, school
supplies, recreation and the like.
The Center obtained a summer job
for him and made a loan sufficient
to cover his living expenses for the
remainder of the current semester.
The next semester he received a fel-
lowship and was able to complete his
Aid Given
In another case, a student, here
on a government fellowship found
himself cut off completely from his
home country by a revolution which
had broken out following his depart-
ure. The country failed to send him
funds and he would have been forced
to discontinue his studies had not
the Emergency Fund come to his aid.
A New York Foundation granted
him a fellowship for the next seme-
ster, but that failed to solve the im-
mediate problem of completing the
current semester. The Fund secured
a part-time job for him and he was
able to continue with the remainder
of his expenses paid by a Fund loan.
After being graduated he estab-
lished himself and repaid the loan,
but found almost immediately that
he was again in need. His final
citizenship papers had been withheld
pending investigation. The Center
returned the loan and permitted him
to postpone repayment until he was
able. The loan was repaid in full,
shortly thereafter.
}Kelly Issues
Safety Plea
LANSING, Dec. 21-P)-Governor
Kelly today issued the following
statement urging exercise of safety
precautions over the Christmas holi-
day season:
"It is appropriate that we in Mi-
chigan celebrate our fourth wartime
Christmas with a spirit as cheerful
as circumstances will permit.
"However, for the sake of oum
country and its sons who are fighting
overseas, we must make sure that
Yuletide accidents are not permitted
to delay the hour of final victory
Our losses abroad are an inescap-
able part of the cost that must be
paid for peace and freedom. But we
can not afford to add to those losses
through carelessness here at home.'
