Small brothers and sisters may seem to be pests to coeds, but with a
little ingenuity, and the assistance of the Child Care Program, they may be
able to turn their little liabilities into assets.
The manner of this transformation is in the Proxy Parents. This is
a service, sponsored by the Child Care Committee, in which coeds may
care for Ann Arbor children. The coed stays at the home of the child
for an evening or an afternoon, watching the child, and perhaps doing her

future to explain the duties of the
coeds. All women, including enter-
taining freshmen, are eligible for
these activities.

County ..Office
For Veterans Is
LANSING, NOV. 8t-(I)-An At-
torney General's opinion declared to-
day that county boards of supervis-
ors are without authority to create
a county office of veterans' affairs if
a full time director is to be paid at
county expense.
The opinion, addressed to Bar-
nard H. Davison, Prosecuting Attor-
ney at Negaunee, said no statute
confers authority to create such an
office, and it can not be implied
from the general powers given boards
of supervisors.
It cited an opinion holding that a
county board of supervisors is with-
out authority to make an appropri-
ation to the county defense council
to establish a rehabilitation fund for
returning members of the armed for-
ces. The opinion said establishment
of a county office of veterans' affairs
would be for a similar purpose.

Ruthven, Nelson Honored at
International Center Reception


< > -

Highlighted by the presentation of
the honorary Doctor's degree of the
Catholic University of Chile to Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven and the
presentation of a plaque honoring
the services of Prof. Emeritu J. Ral-
eigh Nelson, the International Cen-
ter held its annual reception for new
foreign students at 7:30 p. m. yes-
terday in the Rackham Amphithea-'
Prof. Irving A. Leonard of the Ro-
mance Language department gave a
brief sketch of the great intellectual
and cultural contributions which
Chile has made before introducing
Prof. Augusto Munoz, a graduate of
the University engineering school
who has recently been appointed to
the faculty of the Catholic Univer-
sity of Chile.
In presenting the degree of "doc-
tor honoris causa" to President Ruth-
ven, Prof. Munoz expressed his uni-
versity's appreciation for the oppor-
tunities which the University techni-
cal staff has extended to students
froim Chile. President Ruthven, in
accepting the honorary degree said,
"I am touched by this recognition
that. the University must maintain
the international spirit which has
characterized her so long and feel
that much of the future of interna-
tional work depends on the stand
taken by colleges and universities."
The second part of the program
consisted of President' Ruthven's
presentation of a plaque commemor-
ating the services of Prof. Emeritus
J. Raleigh Nelson to the Dr. E. M.
Gale, present director of Center.
Prof. Emeritus Nelson acknowledged
the plaque as a memorial to the

'riends he had made in 35 years of
service as the first counselor and di-
:ector of the Center.
On the plaque are a profile view
of Prof. Nelson and the following
quotation from the Scriptures, "But
the stranger that dwelleth with you
shall be unto you as one born among
you, and thou shalt love him as thy-

that, as had been predicted, the mili-

Fry conceded the reelection of
Kelly, the first Michigan governor to
win two terms in a row since the
1928 reelection of the late Governor
Fred W. Green. He commended Kel-
ly for a "clean campaign" (Kelly nev-
er once mentioned him in a campaign
speech) and promised any coopera-
tion Kelly might request of him.
Kelly responded with a telegram to
Fry: "Please accept my sincere
thanks for your congratulatory tele-
gram and for your good wishes."
This was one of Michigan's strange
elections. Wayne County cast a rec-
ord of about 835,000 votes, 100,000
more than in 1940. Volume of vot-
ing outstate was heavy, but missed
record proportions in some sections,
but the total apparently about came
even with the 1940 record of 2,085,-
000 in the State.
The tabulation indicated the adop-
tion of one of four proposed Consti-
tutional amendments. This was one
allowing municipal governments to
share increased portions of their
water supplies with suburban areas
for sanitation and fire prevention
