Reports from Tel Aviv said troops
of the Sixth Airborne Division fired
at the legs of demonstrators after
giving orders to "disperse immediately
or we open fire."
Policemen Hurt
A surging crowd of youths set fire
to the British District Office, break-
ing windows to hurl torches inside,
the report said, and also attacked the
income tax office. Two Jewish police
officers were reported hurt by flying
The troops were said to have erect-
ed huge posters, in the English, Ara-
bic and Hebrew languages, ordering
demonstrators to go home or be shot.
Searchlights were directed on the
posters, and the crowds dispersed by

With something of the pioneer
spirit, the serviceman contemplating
a postwar job in Alaska will find am-
ple opportunities, Prof. Dow V. Bax-
ter of the School of Forestry and,
Conservation stated in a Daily inter-
"The number of inquiries that
come to my attention, together with
letters from servicemen who have
been in Alaska," Prof. Baxter said.
"indicate that there is an increasing
awareness of Alaska's potentialities,
for living in the territory and for its
recreational features for visitors. The
outlook for profitable operation of re-
sorts is good not only because of the
superb mountains, glaciers, and
streams but also because Alaska has
become a crossroads for world trav-
Recreation an Important Industry
"Recreation," he continued, "is
certain to be an important industry
in Alaska, and the job of taking care
of visitors a big one; however, it will
be mostly seasonal and not a year-
round affair. One of my friends, for
example, operates a fishing lodge dur-
ing the summer and teaches school
during the winter. Combinations of
many different sorts will be made by
the most successful resort owners."
Transportional and recreational
facilities mustbesdeleloped wisely in
order not to destroy the game, fish,
and natural resources that are
Alaska's main attraction, Prof. Bax-
ter warned. It is all too easy, he said,
to develop an area to such anhextent
that its attractions are developed out
of existence.
Work for United States
"The majority of my Alaskan
friends earn their living by working
for the United States government or
by fishing, fish-canning or mining.
Most Federal jobs of a permanent
nature will be civil service. Although
there is gold in Alaska, prospecting is
a decided gamble," he pointed out,
"and the main possibilities in this
field lie in working for a good min-
ing company."
There is no doubt, he said, but that
agriculture can furnish a means of
Students Collect
Unsold books held by the Student
Book Exchange will be distributed
from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays until
next Wednesday and from 10 a.m. to
noon this Saturday at Lane Hall.
Checks for the books sold at the
Exchange sales room in the League
have been mailed together with no-
tices explaining the return of unsold
books. Persons calling for their books
are asked to bring their receiptsin

livelihood for a few settlers. There
are many areas, such as the Mata-
nuska Valley, where immense cab-
bages, turnips, and other vegetables
can be grown successfully. The mar-
keting problem isapt to be a serious
one however, at least after the size
of the armed forces now stationed
there is reduced.
"I feel that one of the potentialities
not yet developed," Prof. Baxter
added, "is the paper industry. The
U. S. Forest Service is anxious to de-
velop such an activity, which will
offer permanent work for so many."
Optimistic about Future
"I am optimistic about Alaska's
future," Prof. Baxter concluded "but
the veteran thinking of going there
should understand that although
wages are high, the cost of living is
also high, and he should fully under-
stand the situation he will face.
Education Club
To Plan Work
A meeting to consider the future
of the Undergraduate Education Club
will be held at 4 p. m. today in the
University High School Auditorium.
The club was organized last year
to meet the needs of the undergradu-
ate education students. A primary
aim of the organization is to be of
service to the University and the
community. Last year the club spon-
sored a student newspaper, a choir,
and worked with the children in the
University Hospital. Similar projects
are expected to continue this year.
Other aims of the club are to ac-
quaint students with mutual interests,
and to develop a professional attitude.
The Undergraduate Committee
hopes there will be sufficient interest
shown by education students to war-
rant continuing the club.

Alaska wants people who hope to be
permanent settlers, and if the veteran
goes there to live, he should go with
the expectation of remaining."
Prof. Baxter has made several ex-
peditions in Alaska, the last one in
1941. In addition to several technical
papers on Alaska such as "Forest and
Fungus Succession in the Lower Yu-
kon," he has written a number of ar-
ticles including "Photographic For-
ay," "Modern Frontier," and "I'll
Take the Byway."
Harfs-t Speaks
On .Proposed
"Great benefits for Ann Arbor can
be expected from the proposed Chi-
cago-Detroit express highway," said
Richard Harfst, general manager of
the Automobile Club of Michigan.
Speaking to a Rotary Club audi-
ence yesterday, Harfst claimed that
football fans could leave Chicago as
late as midmorning and still arrive
in adequate time for a 2 p. m. kickoff.
Addressing the same audience,
Samuel C. Hadden, 'consulting engi-
neer for the proposed highway, stated
that the expressway was almost cer-
tain to run within a mile or two of
Ann Arbor in linking up with the Wil-
low Run expressway. The highway
has been given top priority by the
government to receive federal aid
under the Federal Aid Highway Act.
Newcomb To Address
Sociologist Convention
Prof. Theodore Newcomb of the
sociology department will address a
convention of sociologists at the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin tomorrow.

"Russia's Economy and Postwar
Reconstruction" will be discussed by;
Vladipir D. Kazakevich, of the Na-
tional Council of American-Soviet
Friendship, at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow in
the Rackham Amphitheatre.

mittee on Education, he has taught
economics and finance at Columbia
University and in the American In-

burg. He was educated in a Russian
school at Harbin, Manchuria, where
his father worked as engineer and
general manager of a railroad.
After attending the University of
California and Columbia University,
he was employed by the New York
Herald Tribune as a reviewer of eco-
nomic books. He has also been em-
ployed by the National Bureau of
Economic Research, the Twentieth

Club Reports
Big Enrollment
New life has been given to the
University Forestry Club by the en-
rollment of 74 undergraduates and
six graduate students tin the School
of Forestry and Conservation.
At the first meeting plans were
made for the rebirth of the tradi-
tional bonfire, one of the wartime
casualties of the club. Michigan for-
esters will revive the tradition begun
in the fall of 1907 when they gather
tomorrow for an evening of songs
and food around a campfire in the
heart of the Saginaw Forest.
Trucks will leave the Natural Sci-
ence Building at 5:30 p. m. Friday.
