that the true Christmas is a simple, oft-told story
of a tiny babe in a manger; of wise men, and the
star in the East that guided them to the Nativity.
May the wise men that direct our destinies today
be granted the wisdom to fulfill the ancient proph-

This is our Christmas wish

Wayne 'U' Asks
Goi eiior for
Fin anci, I Help
New Lab Facilities,
Class Rooms Needed.
LANSING, Dec. 18-(RP)-Governor
Kelly received from Wayne Univer-
sity officials today a report that they
needed $3,000,000 for a new labora-
tory building and a class room build-
ing if their institution is to continue
its present operations.
Board's View
Kelly said he had made the Uni-
versity no promises, but has asked
Dr. David D. Henry, President, to
secure from the Detroit Board of
Education, which operates the Uni-
versity, a statement of its views on
proposals that the state be given a
voice in its control, or that the state
acquire the school.
Kelly said he would give the legis-
lature the board's opinion, but made
it clear he might have a separate rec-
ommendation. He has said that the
needs of Wayne University should be
considered by the lawmakers in their
special session next month.
Limit Enrollment
The Governor said Henry and Ar-
thur Neef, University Provost, "in-
form me that unless new facilities are
made available shortly it will be nec-
essary to limit enrollment, and that
means denying an education to an
undetermined number of Michigan
citizens who lack the funds to sup-
port themselves while studying in
some other school. Inasmuch as there
is little probability that the city of
Detroit will be able to finance a
building program,it appears obvious
that unless the state gives financial
assistance to Wayne, it will be forced
to curtail its activities."
The officials told Kelly the Uni-
versity now is operating on three
"shifts" between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. in
order to provide instruction for 20,-
000 students a year. They reported
that 60 per cent of the student body
attends classes after 2 p.m. because
they are employed during the re-
mainder of the day.

Professors on Quiz Progrram
Answer All Qiesioiis But Two

When it is a question of unusual
information, University professors
are not easily stymied. On the pro-
gram "Stump the Professor," (the
University's version of 'Information
Please") broadcast at 2 p.m. Dec. 15
over WJR, the professors answered
satisfactorily all questions except
two. The panel included Randolph
Adams, Arthur Hackett, George Kiss,
Amos Morris, and Frank Robbins.
The two questions which forced the
professors to bow their heads in de-
feat were contributed by interested
radio listeners. Mrs. Caroline Bakle
of Mark Centtr, Ohio, succeeded in
"stumping" the professors with the
following three-part question.
(1) Does the U. S. own the Pan-
ama Canal Zone? (No, we have a
perpetual rent agreement.) (2) Can
a new star be added to the United
States flag at any time? (No, only on
July 4.) (3) Where and by whom was
the first labor union formed in Amer-
ica? Union of Journeymen Bakers
in N. Y. in 1741.) The professors
could answer only the first part of
the question.

(Bc u, News Letter, 1704) (2) The
first s hool book in America? (New
England Primer, 1690) (3) The first
public library in American?
(Charleston, S. C. in 1698) The pro-
fessors were able to answer only one
part of this question also.
The remainder of the questions
failed to trouble the panel.
