Line of March
Over and under-sized pandas,
lambs, Dumbos, cats, dogs and dolls
are challenging the position of the
stuffed rabbits which have tradition-
'ally led the Easter parade.
Designed to stir the imaginations
of children on Easter morning,
stuffed menageries have in the past
few years become the campus rage.
Though on continual demand, it is
at Eastertide that they assume out-
landish proportions and sizes.
The manager of a local artificial
pet shop insisted that the large rab-
bits, giraffes and pigtailed dolls, each
selling for more than a week's room
and board, are acquired mainly for
display purposes; but, he admitted,
"we never yet had one left.'
It is hard to picture a child strug-
gling to play with one of those life-
sized giraffes made of some anony-
mous fur or to drag his favorite
bunny to bed with him when the bun-
ny is larger than lie, or above all,
consenting to wash his hands with a
soap-carved duck known as "Sleepy-
eyed Sammy." Nevertheless, many
such animals have been purchased by
Michigan women have been suc-
cessful in inducing their dates to ex-I
change more than a little loose
change for one of those creatures
destined to make a zoo out of a dor-
mitory room, according to reports.

declared, a sailor bought the largest
panda in the shop and NOT for his

the Filipino veterans who fought not
only as Filipino soldiers, but as sol-
diers of the United States Army. It is
especially for the benefit of Filipino
soldiers who fought on Bataan.
Government Officials Endorse Plan
According to the petition, the plan
which is being endorsed by Michi-
gan students has been proposed by
the Secretary of War, the Adminis-
trator of Veterans Affairs and the
United States High Commissioner to
the Philippines. The plan is to re-
dress a new act which, as it stands
now, discriminates against Filipino
veterans, preventing them from en-
joying the benefits which, according
to the petition, should be accorded to
any veteran who fought under the
The new plan, endorsed by the
members of the Philippine-Michigan
Club, grants the Philippine Army
personnel inducted into the service
of the United States Army most of
the benefits which American law pro-
vides for its veterans. According to
the petition, this plan would grant to
the Filipino veteran full benefits un-
der the GI bill of rights,; including
"automatic gratuitous insurance
against death in line of duty in ac-
tive service between Oct. 9, 1940, and
April .19, 1942, a period including
the whole period of the First Battle
of the Philippines."
It also includes "a pension for
non-service-connected disability in-
curred during term of service; medi-
cal and hospital treatment and domi-
ciliary care of veterans suffering
from injuries or diseases incurred or
aggravated in line of duty, including
funeral and burial expenses; voca-
tional rehabilitatiort' for disabled vet-
erans; civil service preference; the
mustering-out payment law; the six-
month death gratuity to dependents
of personnel who died in line of duty
or similar provision under the Miss-
ing Persons Act."
According to the petition, President
Truman has approved H.R. 5158, the
First Supplemental Surplus Appro-
priation Rescission Act, but took ex-
ception to a legislative rider at-
tached to the transfer of a $200,000,-

the Philippines on the ground that

The Forest Service parachute proj-

in the western national forests to stu-

will be given a month of intensive
