'U' Broadcasting Unit Will
Be Housed in New Building

"The University Broadcasting Serv-
ice, a unit of the Extension Service,
will be housed on the fifth floor of
the Service Building, construction of
which will be begun early in 1946,"
Prof. Waldo Abbot, director of broad-
casting, announced yesterday.
"Morris Hall is not sound proof nor
is there good acoustic treatment, even
the floors squeak, Prof. Abbot said.
"In addition there is a dearth of space
as Morris Hall lodges the Broadcast-
ing Service plus the University Band
and classes in the Speech Depart-
ment. This preventsadequate re-
hearsal time for programs and limits
the number of programs which can
be presented."
To be Modernistic
In comparison, the fifth floor of
the Service Building will offer suffi-
cient space and facilities. The large
lobby, to be modernistically furnished,
will provide a waiting room for speak-
ers and musicians. At one end of the
lobby will be a window looking di-
rectly into the speakers' studio. From
this studio, talks, round tables, and
debates will be broadcast.
Another studio will be used for
dramas and small musical groups.
Attached will be an audience room so
that visitors can attend the broad-
casts. A larger studio will provide
ample space for small symphny or-
chestras to broadcast. From an ad-
joining studio, Joseph E. Maddy,
Prof. of Radio Music Instruction, will
broadcast instructions to students in
the larger studio on the playing of
musical instruments by radio. Each
studio will have its own elevated con-
trol room.
New Recording Room
A recording room will be con-

Music, the Speech Department, and-
other groups. The music library will
contain all University recordings and
the script library will have on file
University scripts and talks. A sound
equipment room, a work shop and a
director's office will also be con-
All broadcasting equipment will be
of the most advanced type. Broad-
casting studios used by CBS, NBC,
WOR, KYW, and WGY were studied
and suggestions were taken from
them in order that the Michigan
Broadcasting Service might profit
from the latest developments in radio
equipment and studio architecture.
Special attention has been given to
acoustics and there will be indirect
lighting throughout. Anyone inter-
ested in seeing the plans is welcome
to visit Morris Hall where Prof. Abbot
has a detailed plan of the fifth floor,
with photographs of studios, dis-
played on the bulletin board.
Sftagecraft Courses
Are Discontinued
Courses in stagecraft have been
temporarily discontinued, Prof. G. E.
Densmore of the speech department
announced yesterday.
Prof. Herbert Philippi, who former-
ly taught the courses, has accepted a
position as Assistant Professor in
speech at the University of Missouri,
Prof. Densmore said. No one has
yet been appointed to take his place.
Prof. Philippi, who designed and
supervised the construction of scen-
ery for Play Production, was an in-
structor in stagecraft here for two
years. He is a graduate of Cornell

U' Enrollment
Tops Estimates
Registration for Fall
Semester Is 11,319
Final enrollment figures for this se-
mester exceed all pre-term estimates.
The grand total of 11,319 students
registered at the close of the ninth
day of classes constitute an overall
gain of 22 per cent over last year's to-
tal, the Registrar's Office announced
Men account for 5,967 of this num-
ber, as compared to the 4,549 male
student enrollment of last fall.
2,000 Vets
Veteran enrollment, which will re-
main open until Nov. 15, now totals
2,033, including 37 women. This fig-
ure represents an increase of 505 per
cent over last year's enrollment total
of 336 veterans.
Approximately 700 ex-servicemen
have enrolled in the College of Liter-
ature, Science and the Arts, and 508
have registered for the School of En-
gineering. Law school with 163 veter-
ans enrolled, the School of Business
Administration with 173, and the
School of Graduate Studies with 202
reveal record veteran enrollments.
Decrease in Military
The only sizeable decrease in num-
bers occurs in enrollment of members
of the armed forces. Army personnel
has decreased 45 per cent in com-
parison with the total of 1,050 re-
cotrded for Nov. 11, 1944. Navy and
Marine enrollment reveals a 17 per
cent drop.
Final data on freshman enrollment
show a total of 1,526, a jump of 21
per cent over the number enrolled in
1944. More than 1,000 freshman
women and 465 men are enrolled.

I recall reading in the Daily re-
cently about how a couple reporters
interviewed a lot of freshmen to see
what they thought of the U of M
campus. Unfortunately, the reporters
got away before I could catch them,
and so to save them the trouble of
writing another story just for me,
I've decided to do the job myself.
Strictly speaking, I'm not exactly
new here. I mean I enrolled last
fall and I've put in two semesters
already, but due to the lack of fore-
sight on the part of those who give
grades in freshman English and
the D- I got from Prof. Slosson in
History 12, I'm still a freshman.
This malady I daresay will be cor-
rected before many weeks, because
I'm getting mighty tired of sitting in
the end zone at football games. I'm
told sophomores get seats near the

be selected by the engineering college,
two by the combined schools and five
by the literary college. The chair-
man of the committee will be from
the engineering college and will be
selected by the Men's Judiciary Coun-
For all of these elections, the candi-
date must remain on campus for two
terms or he cannot be eligible. This
will reduce the necessity for mid-se-
mester special elections. Candidates
for posts must obtain eligibility cards.
Voting for the senior officers of the
engineering college and of the literary
college will be by preferential ballot.
Members of the Men's Judiciary
Council, the campus organization in
charge of elections, are Charles Wal-
ton, president; Richard Mixer, secre-
tary; Sanford Perlis, president of the
Union; Dogan Arthur, president of
the Interfraternity Council and Ray
Dixon, managing editor of The Daily.
It May Be So, We

ESTEVAN, Sask., Nov. 12 -(/P)-
Two hunters, P. C. Brown and Ar-
chie Holley, sighted some ducks from
the edge of McDonald lake near here.
Brown fired. The wadding from the
shell fell into a hole in the ice. A
big jack fish jumped for the wad-
ding, landed on the ice. Holley's dog
retrieved the fish. The ducks got

10 yard line, and that's my ambitionr
for the Ohio State game. Also I'vel
been carrying that brown envelope
around so much, that two sophomores1
have already tried to sell me reserva-1
tions under the fifth bush on the left
as you go into the Arboretum.
Personally, I don't feel that Ann
Arbor is quite the gay place it was
last year. I'll never forget Novem-
ber, 1944. How proud my family was
of me. "Son," my mother said, wiping
a tear from her pince-nez, "you done
well in high school. Now, . . " Here
her voice broke and she silently
handed me the address of a cheap
tutor for Zoology 1.
And Dad, dear old Dad, sighed
heavily (he's troubled with asthma
and bronchial catarrh) and spat.
"Harumph," he said, chucking me
under the chin. "when I was a cor-
poral in France. . . " But there was
the taxi waiting to take me to the
depot, and I climbed in hastily, lest
they should see that I too might still
be a baby.
I was lonely when I reached Ann
Arbor, but as I stepped from the
train, I tilted my hat at a more
collegiate angle, smiled conde-
scendingly at the quaint little sta-
tion, took new courage from the
hills about me (this was before I
realized that all the hills in Ann
Arbor go up, none of them go
down) and surged forth to hail a
passing motor-lorry.
And what a gay round of parties
during orientation week! My orienta-
tion guide, she a senior in psychology
who refused to nibble Cheezits with
me on the library steps, took us all
over campus, even letting us ride the
elevator in the Rackham building.
And then, when I had my first coke

Logan Denied Right to Happiness

date with Marjorie, it was heaven.
Marjorie and I broke up later when
she got nasty about paying her coke
bill in the League, but little did I
know in November what kind of girl
she'd turn out to be.
Ann Arbor was idyllic then,.but not
so this semester-and all because of
a woman. I met this designing
woman, Shirley by name, at the Grid
Shuffle last week, Such a sweet girl,
she looked. My roommate and I were
standing by the dark room waiting
for things to develop when suddenly
I looked up and there she was. A
vision. Blonde and beautiful.
I rasped to my roommate, an
anemic boy from Belding, "Come
on, Wilbur, let's operate." (I pick
up this college terminology fast.) I
sidled over and in my best collegi-
ate. manner I whispered, "How ya
fixed for tonight, babe?" It worked
like magic, and after a little pre-
liminary sparring, we set a date for
the Purdue game this weekend,
with other recreation to follow.
I was in. I wrote a poem in her
honor. I asked my father to send me
$10. I even wrote to Hollywood and
Briggs Stadium for autographs of all
the big celebrities so I could make
her a present of them. Then last
night she called me on the telephone.
"Peter," she giggled. "Perry," I cor-
rected sternly. "What is it you wish?"
I asked, thinking to put her at ease.
"Uh-Jerry," she said, "uh-you know
our date for next Saturday?" "Oh,
my dear, my darling, my only love,"
I cried, giving my eavesdropping
landlady a certain uneasiness about
my purity, "how could I forget?"
"Well," she said, "you'd beter,
because I forgot to tell you that I'm
going steady with an NOR I met
Sunday, and so I guess our date is
'Off." "It's NRO," I gulped mo-
rosely, feeling that nothing mat-
tered anymore. For all I cared, it
could have been a third-term law
studeft, but I masked my broken
heart. "Well, no more toujours
l'amour," I coraled gaily. "That's a
song, you know," I added to let
her know there were no hard feel-
The birds aren't singing in Ann
Arbor anymore. The squirrels; no
longer frisk gaily through the trees.
And the Union date bureau hasn't
opened yet. I'm said and I'm lonely.
But all is not lost. I find that a
brochure has just been distributed by
the Ann Arbor High School to the ef-
fect that they're holding open house
with free cocoa and cookies for all the
high school freshmen Friday night.
If you see a spaniel-eyed guy
with pressed trousers and pink
toothbrush hanging around out-
side the party Friday waiting for
the ninth-grade girls to come out,
that'll be me. I was murder in"
high school.
