UESDAY, JANUARY 8, 1940

Grad's Desigi
Will's $1,000 in
Tribune Contest
Peterson Named Joint
Winier for Home PlaI
Ensign Ralph DeLos Peterson, '40A,
was named joint winner of a $1,000
award in the Chicago Tribune's $24,-
000 Chicagoland competition for the
best small home designs, it was an-
nounced yesterday.
Peterson's design, submitted jointly
with Lt. Curtis S. Woolford, is for a
home utilizing less than 1,100 square
feet of floor area, suitable for a 30
by 150 site, to accommodate a family
of father, mother, and son aged 6.
The prize plan was one of 24 selected
by a jury of nine Chicago architects
and builders from 938 submitted. It
will be published in the Tribune and
exhibited in the Chicago area.
Peterson helped organize the first
student branch ofthe American Insti-
tute of Architects while at the Uni-
versity; he won a scholarship to Har-
vard's Graduate School of Design in
1941. Both he and Woolford are at-
tached to the Brooklyn Navy Yard at
present.
Puppet.. .
(Continued from Page 1)
June. 1944, he went to Boguio, a city
150 miles from Manila to which the
Philippine puppet government was
moved in Dec., 1944.
"The saturation bombing began on
March 15," Narcisco remarked, "and
we left the next day. After walking
over narrow mountain trails three
days and nights to reach a liberated
town, he said, on March 28, 1945, we
saw our first glorious sign of libera-
tion-a jeep!"
Listing the vital problems fac-
ing the people of the Philippines
today, Capt. Delfin Sian stressed
the need for cooperation. "This is
important because it affects the
Philippines in the eyes of the
world," he said. Other problems
facing the Filipino people today
are the question of independence,
the restoration of peace and order,
rehabilitation, and moral depres-
sion.

By BILL GOLDSTEIN
"Well," they asked, "what did you
do with that three thousand feet of
scenery?"
"Who, me?" I answered, "I'm from
the 'Daily." I came to do a feature on
the Navy's musical comedy, "Anchors
Away."
"Why didn't you say so," Carl Hem-
mer, director of the show, said as he
reached into his pocket for a cigar.
"Here,-have one, have two. No, on
second thought, here's a complimen-
tary pass to the show Wednesday
night. Yes sir, your fifty-cent piece
and our compliments.
"Why don't you sit here in this
plush chair and soak up a little at-
mosphere. (At this point he pro-
duced a blotter with an "Anchors
Away" advertisement on the front.)
I'm pretty busy, but if you want me
just whistle." He dug again and came
up with a bosun's pipe which was
cleverly attachedy means of a four-
foot length of anchor chain to a pic-
ture of Lauren Bacall. On the back
of the picture was another adver-
tisement for the show.
I seated myself and casually
looked around. I was startled to
notice that the organ pipes were
nowhere to be seen. "Hey," I
shouted to Russel Duff, production
manager who was sitting next to
me, "This is Hill Auditorium, isn't
it? What hap ned to the organ
pipes? Doctor Christian is going to
be awfully excited when he finds
out you took out the organ pipes."
"They're not out," Duff assured me
me. "In this scene we use the 3,000
square feet backdrop. Excuse me for
a moment," he said, "I've got to see
where they put thatrailroad car."
"Railroad car? In here? You mean
the New York Central is going to run
a track through the auditorium?"
"No," Duff answered. "We just
borrowed a pullman for the evening.
There's the porter now. We had to
take him with the car."
"How'd you get it in here?" I asked.
"We did have a little trouble

there," he admitted. "They wanted
to bring it in sideways, but of
course that meant we would have
had to rip out the side wall. If you
want me just whistle." He started
to hand me another whistle, but I
told him that I already had one."
I moved over to where Commander
Fitch was standing. "How are things
coming?" I asked.
"Excellently," he smiled, "I just
came over to help out a bit. I can't
tell you how pleasantly surprised I
am to find that the show is running
along smoothly. It's a rather large
undertaking. As far as I know, this
is the first show of its kind ever to
be held on the campus. My position
is merely to help things run smoothly.
Lt. Bowman is the show's advisor.

He can probably answer some of your
questions about the cast."
Lt. Bowman is the show's guiding
hand. "We've got professional talent
as well as local. Our dancing team
will be talked about for quite awhile,"
he assured me. "They are doing a
specialty along the lines of the De-
Marcos. It's said that the DeMarcos
have .heard of Bill and Nancy (the
dancing team) and I don't know if
they're worried yet, but they're prob-
ably anxious."
As I left the auditorium, I care-
fully tucked away my presents.
The only thing that bothers me is
how to blow the whistle. I won-
der if it's one of those wooden ones
that won't.
