'U' Debating Squad Discusses
Vets, Trade, Military Training

Veterans' wants are among the
topics currently under discussion by
the debate team of the university.
In practice debates with Michi-
gan colleges and discussions before
high school students, clubs and
civic groups, the squad, under the
direction of Dr. Charles W. Lomas,
assistant professor of speech, fol-
lows a planned schedule of trips.
"We will continue to emphasize
group work discussion rather than

Dr. W. Rowan
Will Lecture
On Migration
Dr. William Rowan, pioneer experi-
menter in migration, will present a
University lecture on "The Riddle of
Migration" at 4:15 p.m. Friday in
the Rackham Amphitheatre.
He will also speak before Sigma Xi
at 8 p.m. the same day in the Natur-
al Science Auditorium. His topic will
be " The Future of Humanity from a
Biologist's Viewpoint."
The story of Dr. Rowan's life would
seem to provide the key to his inter-
est in migration. Born in Switzerland,
he spent his early life in France and
England. Seeking to escape the omi-
nous prospect of an office career,
Rowan migrated to Southern Alberta
to become a cowpuncher. Returning
to England, he studied at the Uni-
versity of London, then went back to
Alberta to found a zoology depart-
ment at the University of Edmonton.
Dr. Rowan's photographs, models
of wild animals and art works have
been displayed in museums and gal-
leries in Canada, England and the
United States. In addition to his book
"The Riddles of Migration," he has
written several papers and short

Hall Asks World Unity as
Only Way To Keep Peace
WASHINGTON, March 11-()-
Former Secretary of State Cordell
Hull, noting a current "spirit of im-
patience" in the world, appealed to-
day for cooperation among nations
as the only means of preserving the
pea c.
Hlull stressed the importance of re-
lations among the big five nations-
Great Britain, United States, France,
China, Russia-and asserted that
"unspeakable disaster" would result
if those countries failed to recognize
their common interest.
"We who are living now must not
allow the human race to commit sui-

cide through lack of vision or through
selfishness, impatience or provoca-
tion," he said.

United States should endorse a policy
of world-wide iree trade" and "Re-
solved: that every able-bodied male
citizen in the United States should
have one year of full-time military
training before attaining the age of
21 years."
Discussion questions are: "Our
Stake in the Far East;" "Must We
Fight Russia?" "Labor, Manage-
ment and the Public;" "What the
Veterans Want" and "Race Rela-

Forestry Men
Lose Blue Ox
Michigan State Wins
Revived Liars' Contest
Another pre-war tradition has been
revived, but in so doing Michigan
foresters have lost Paul Bunyan's
famed blue ox to Michigan State for
a year.
At the first foresters' banquet since
before the war, held Friday in Lan-
sing, John W. Johnson, representing
the University group, was defeated in
the now annual liars' contest by Car-
ter P. Qualls of Michigan State. The
prize, a small statue of Babe, Paul

ured nine ax handle-lengths between
the eyes, was duly awarded to the
Building Curbed
"drastic" order curbing commercial
construction in favor of houses took
shape today along with a Senate
move to restore the subsidy and other
features of the Housing Bill which
the administration seeks.

cials reported it will hold up thous-
ands of non-essential factories and
business buildings now on blueprints
and will require persons seeking to
erect amusement facilities to show
they are needed.
Wyatt promised a "practical" ap-
plication of the regulation at a lunch-
eon of Construction Management and
