TO Give Plays
April 16, 17
Tickets for the two one-act Span-
ish plays, "Rosina es Fragl" and "Las
Cordortuices," will go on sale at 2 p.m.
Monday in the box office of the Lydia
The plays, to be presented April 16
and 17 in the theater, will star Anne
Sugar '48, Ann Lewin '48, Dick De-
fendin, teaching fellow in the Ro-
mance language department and
Carlos Soares '47.
"Las Codornices" involves a caseof
mistaken identity. A suspicious aunt
and a hen-pecked uncle cause a mis-
erable day for a newly-married cou-
ple. The theme of "Rosina es Fragil"
is based upon Rosina's inability to
say,"no" to a suitor.
Music for the productions will be
played by Helen Sloan.
The committee for the plays are as
follows: Publicity: Lynn Shapiro,
chairman, Sally Anne Cartnell, Irene
Clutter; Decorations: Prof. Vincent

partment devoted its facilities almost
entirely to research for the Army and
Navy. Its most important wartime
contribution was the sensational VT
Expenditures for projects during
the war years amounted to over a
million dollars annually.
T'oday tIhe department is engaged in
more than a hundred projects---rang-
ing from the use of steel in modern
house construction to electronic re-
search-which will eventually result
in a higher standard of living.
The department's relations with in-
dustry and government pays divid-
dends, its directors believe, by aiding
members of the engineering faculty
in keeping up to date on develop-
ments in their particular fields, pro-
viding paying jobs for engineering
students and helping students to
choose a line of engineering endeavor.
The project which Engineering Re-
search undertakes are carried on in
the following departments of the
College of Engineering:
Chemical and Metallurgical Engi-
neering, Aeronautical Engineering,
Metal Processing, Civil Engineering,
Engineering Mechanics, Mechanical
Engineering, Electrical Engineering
and Marine Engineering.
Also included in the Engineering
Research program and the depart-
ments of chemistry and physics in the
literary college, the School of For-
estry and Conservation and the Col-
lege of Architecture and Design.

WASHINGTON, April 9-(A)-The
Administration won a major round
in the housing battle late today when
the Senate voted, 53 to 20, to restore
a $600,000,000 subsidy fund to the
bill designed to provide 2,700,000
homes in the next two years.
The house had knocked the sub-
sidy out of the measure. Intended to
encourage production of scarce build-
ing materials, the provision is viewed
by President Truman as the heart
of the bill.
