Turkey Asks For
U.S. Financial Aid
Near Eastern Political Situation Will
Not Influence Decision, Officials Say
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, April 12-Turkey has applied for an American loan
of about $500,000,000 to finance industrial development, it was learned today.
Government and diplomatic officials confirmed the Turkish applica-
tion but stressed that American consideration at this time has nothing to
do with the political situation in the Near East.
It was learned that Turkey first sounded out the American government
last October and submitted formal application for the credits in February.

Ordered To Rest
DETROIT, April 12-(A)-A com-
plete rest for "a matter of many
days" has been prescribed for Ed-
ward Cardinal Mooney after discov-
ery of a minor heart condition, ac-
cording to his physician.
Cardinal Mooney, who will be 64
next month, is in Providence Hos-
You have been smiling for two fullr
Your facial muscles are weary;
your teeth and gums hurt; you
feel your nicotine-stained lips

a shark; and during that second
there is a resounding CLICK'
The picture to be affixed to your
identification card (good for summer,
fall, and spring teims) has been
snapped. You slink away, noiselessly,
with just the slightest hope remain-
The above event happens to each I
and every University of Michigan
student each and every registration
week. It is the source of countless
jokes. The only thing wrong is that
identification spells nothing back-
wards; it's a pity, but true.
Identification cards serve one main
purpose besides the fact that they
"must be presented . . . at football
games and at the tennis courts..
and will be accepted for admission
to athletic events." This purpose is to
cause a dynamic surge of psycholo-
gical uplift on campus.
How is this accomplished? Simp-
ly through the fact that they al-
ways are issued at about the middle
of the semester, a time when every-
one is in the throes of a slump, a
time when everyone feels a vaca-
tion is about due. Then these little
monstrosities called "ident. cards"
by those in-the-know-and-out-of-
it-are issued. Sure, yours looks aw-
ful; you may resemble a Mongol-
ian idiot-but everyone else's cer-
tainly looks much worse. *
Laughter fills the air, and tiny blue
cards are being hidden in chandeliers
and vacuum cleaners near the scotch.
Everyone feels a little better.
Identification cards, then, like tax-
es, perhaps, are a necessary evil.
Flying Club Will
The Ann Arbor Model Flying Club
will hold a local meet for control-
line models from noon to 5:30 p.m.

Three prizes are to be given in

merchants have contributed $1500

All model builders in the vicinity

tors are invited. Speeds up to 100
m.p.h. are expected.
