Beetles Enjoy
Private Room
In U' Museum
The housing shortage is no worry
to certain inhabitants of the Univer-
sity Museums Building, where a room
known merely as the "Bug Room"
has been set aside for the exclusive
use and pleasure of a colony of beet-
Hundreds of larvae and adults of
lomestic beetles roam the walls, floors
and ceiling of the room. "They are
here for a purpose," Dr. Emmet T.
Hooper, Assistant Curator of Mam-
mals in the Museum of Zoology, said.
"Much of our work here in the lab-
oratories is concerned with examina-
'ion and study of the characteristics
of fish, amphibians, mammals, rep-
iles and birds.' These skeletons mut
'first be cleaned. This was formerly
done by hand, entailing a lot of pains-
taking work and much valuable time,
particularly with such small speci-
mens as birds, bats and shrews," he
"But now," he said, "fresh skele-
tons are merely placed in the 'Bug
Room' for about a week. During this
time the beetles feed upon them, and
when they are removed, they are per-
ectly clean and easily examined."

War Threatens
Over Slide Rule
<CoOtin om pa
the engineers, however, and in 1904
the lawyers' annual Swing Out Pa-
rade was interrupted when they dis-
covered that the enginers had bar-
ricaded the Arch to prevent t hem
from marching through.
The lawyers of that (lay also were
on the receiving end of several bril-
liant engineering feats which con-
sisted mainly of showvering passing
I word-twisters with water and other
more uncomfortable missles from
vantage points above the Arch. Thel
inevitable result was a series of "fun-
fests" in which the engineers and
lawyers organized to mangle each
other as seriously and permanently
as posible.
Traditional Struggle
The traditional struggle took a new
turn in 1929, when a mass of lawyers
tried to beat the stock market and
crash the Slide Rule Ball. A lively
discussion resulted, during which
the more reasonable of the visitors
evaporated through the windows and
the rest were forcibly ejected.
Next year the lawyers, their pride
deeply wounded, resorted to the low
trick of absconding with the Slide
Rule just before the Slide Rule Ball.
For the engineers no greater humil-
iation could be possible. The seethni
and determined engineers combed
their hair, bared their teeth, and
managed to recover the Slide Rule
i in time for the (lance.
But No Slide Rule
Despite the most elaborate precau-
tions the Slide Rule has a habit of
disappearing each year about this
time. Last year the engineers bound
the Slide Rule in several turns of
strong chain and locked it with three
padlocks. Confident that it could not
be highjacked, they returned a few
hours before the dance to find a
chain and three padlocks but no
Slide Rule.
The Lawyers' Crease Ball has come
in for its share of trouble also. One
year someone gained entrance into
the building housing the Crease Ball
revelers by walking through the heat-
ing tunnels located under the cam-
pus. That night the dancing was
postponed for a couple of hours be-
cause some conniving individuals had
strategicaly placed and detonated a
number of nauseating "stink bombs."
The indignant and asphyxiated law-
yers tried to pin the crime on the
engineers but the case was tossed out
of court.

fU' Building Program Attacked

(Continued from page 1)
The entire building program at the,
University of Michigan was designed
to be of assistance to veterans. Hous-
ing units under construction, or au-
thorized, will all be for student vet-
erans. These include 176 family
units, in apartments, and space in
dormitories for a minimum of 1,000
and a maximum of 2,000 veterans. It
is one of the outstanding building
programs in the state, and perhaps
the nation, for veterans.
All housing units are 'built on a
self-liquidating basis and not at tax-
payers' expense. These units have
so far been no burden on the local
building trades since only a few men

in Ann Arbor are engaged in work-
ing on them.
Educational buildings which the
University plans to build, and for
which contracts have been let, will
be used for laboratories and class-
rooms for veterans in large measure.
It would meet only half the problem
if the University provided residential
facilities and none for the veterans
to carry on their educational pro-
gram that brought them to the Uni-
The University has requested the
contractors to erect the buildings as
rapidly as possible to meet the needs
of veterans. The George Fuller
Company is engaged in only the resi-
dential construction phases of the
University's building program.

Idications of friendly relations
between British and Americans are
evident as far back as the early days
of the republic, according to Univer-
sity War Historian F. Clever Bald.
At the time of the British evacua-
tion of Detroit in 1796, England was
already demonstrating courtesy and
cooperation in dealings with Ameri-
cans, he said. An example ws the
lend-leasing by the British of 20,000
pounds of pork for American troops,
on the stipulation that the loan would
be repaid in fresh beef when it was'
Popular History Wrong
Dr. Bald pointed out that British
troops did not destroy public property
before leaving Detroit in 1796. Popu-
lar stories, written in some history
books, such as the tale that the city
was vacated by the British after the
wells had been filled with stones,
windows broken and the gates of the
fort locked, are inaccurate, according
to Dr. Bald.
"The myth has done a great deal
of harm in keeping alive American
animosity towards Great Britain," he
British 'Most Polite'
Not only did the British not destroy
property, but General Wayne, com-
mander of American troops taking
over the fort, reported that it had
been surendered in "the most polite,
friendly and accommodating manner."
He was so pleased by the British atti-
tude that he once ordered a ship's
captain going to Mackinac .to trans-
port British troops on the return trip,
Dr. Bald said.
Referring to the historical lend-
lease incident, Dr. Bald said: "This
early practice of lend-lease, put into
operation informally by an agree-

Blakeman Is Guest
Speaker at Cornell
Dr. Edward W. Blakeman, Coun-
selor in Religious Education, was
guest speaker yesterday at the cele-
bration of the twenty-fifth anniver-
sary of the Board of United Religious
Workers at Cornell University.
Complimenting the religious groups
on a pattern of cooperation which
"challenges every university in Amer-
ica," he said that the demand for an
adequate goal for enduring peace
means that religion is getting "fresh'
consideration in the educational
centers of the world."
