WASHINGTON, Jan. 13-As the
war moves closer to Tokyo, fighter es-
corts for B-29 Superforts may be
Because of its tremendous range,
the B-29 was designed to protect
itself-and does-but help is welcom-
ed by any bomber crew.
Additional range may be added to
the Army's top fighter planes. Com-
bined with advanced fighter bases,
this would make escorting of the
Superforts to Japan as feasible as
sending fighters to Berlin alongside
the B-17s and B-24s.
Surprise, surprise! : Here's one
bright spot in the income tax pic-
ture for a lot of folks. Statisti-
eians in the Bureau of Internal
Revenue estimate that some 20,000,-
000 persons will get refunds from
tax payments on 1944 income.
Main reason is over-withholding
of taxes under the table system used
by many employers. To simplify the
job for employers, the government
provided tables with wide wage
brackets. Result was that the same
amount was taken from a $40 wage
as from a $49 wage, and so on.

Activities for the remainder rof
this semester, as well as projects to
be undertaken next semester were
decided upon Tuesday at a meet-
ing of Inter-Racial Association.
IRA decided to participate in the
formation of a Race Clinic, to be
supported by at least four church
groups, community groups (includ-
ing IRA) and business men. It will
consist of a series of community
clinics on race relations organized
in strategic places in Ann Arbor, and
its purpose will be to ascertain exact-
ly what the inter-racial problems are
and to work on their alleviation.
Representing the University, IRA
will work on unemployment prob-
lems in conjunction with the pro-
posed Clinic. The group is also
considering working on housing and
health problems, leisure activities
and community resources.
A new committee was set up in
IRA to participate in Negro History
Week, the second week of Febru-
ary. This group is investigating the
possibility of holding lectures dur-
ing that week, as well as setting up
a display in the Rackham building.
Other activities decided upon were

WASHINGTON, Jan. 18 - The
White House today stamped the
high-priority travels of Elliott Roo-
sevelt's bull mastiff as a "regrettable
combination of errors"-but indicat-
ed no one will be put in the doghouse.
Stephen Early, Presidential Press
Secretary, said nobody in the execu-
tive offices had anything to do with
giving the huge pet a rating high
enough to get three servicemen
bumped off an army transport plane
in Memphis Jan. 11.
The President's second son, an
Air Forces colonel, said in London
he had nothing to do with air trans-
portation priority for the dog "Blaze"
which was sent to his bride, actress
Faye Emerson, in Hollywood.

the line somebody has made a mis-
take," vas the comment of Secre-
tary of War Stimson when he was
asked about the matter at his news
Maj. Gen. Harold L. George, com-
mander of the Army Air Transport
Command, said after a preliminary
investigation that there had been
"an error of judgment," and that
procedure would be changed so that
there will be no more such mistakes.

Early answered in the negative.
No Punishment Contemplated
He added that certainly nothing of
that sort is contemplated for Sea-
man Leon Leroy, who first disclosed
at his home in Antioch, Calif., yes-
terday, that he and two others had
had to get off the plane to make way
for high priority freight while the
dog stayed aboard.
Leroy's mother, saying that the
matter "sort of frightens us," had
expressed concern lest it affect her
son's status in the Navy.

The new Union-League Acquaint-
ance Bureau in an attempt to pro-
vide new acquaintances for every-
one on campus opens this week.
The new Bureau is not to be con-
fused with the former organization
of the same name which flourished
in years past.
This year the purpose is different;
the organization is different-in fact
everything about it is different. The
rejuvenated bureau will maintain
registration desks at the League and
at the Union. Later on, desks may
be set up at the quads and at Stock-
well Hall. ..It will also be possible
for women to register with their
house social chairman.
Operations this year are aimed at
all students, both Grads and under-
grads. It is the hope of the com-
mittee in charge to provide at least
one new acquaintance for every stu-
dent on campus. Perhaps the pur-
pose of the Bureau can be best ex-
plained by stating what it is not.
It is not a Bureau to provide "dates"
for persons who can't find one for
themselves. It will attempt to wid-
en the social scope of each student
by helping him to meet as many
other students as possible. What
