Artists' Lives

and European art by Carl D. Shep-
pard, .Jr., instructor in Fine Arts
at the University, will be presented
by the University Broadcasting
Service at 2:30 p.m. today over

The programs will deal with
both the life and work of one par-
ticular artist on each broadcast.
Each artist's place among contem-

tribution to modern art. Shep-
pard will also define Surrealism,

the reasons for their appearance.

art on modern architecture, in-

will be explained.
The first program in the series
is designed as an introduction to
the entire subject. On succeeding
Wednesdays, Sheppard will discuss
the other artists and their works.

operating in Ann Arbor, and these
are operated by 315 licensed cab
drivers.There has been no in-
crease in cab permits in over a
"It seems to me that 62 cabs
are enough for Ann Arbor if they
are kept in steady operation," the
Chief asserted. He also said that
he felt that mostly part time driv-
ers, not regulars, were responsible
for failing to obey the taxi laws.
The Daily was able to obtain
statements from only two of the
city's cab companies.
John Stauch, president of Vet-
erans Cab said: "I had a talk with
the Chief two or three weeks ago
and he told me then he had had
no specific complaints against
Veterans Cab Company. We will
work harder, however, to improve
our service."
Miss M. Hillis, spokesman for
the Radio Cab Company, said that
slhe believed that the police de-
partment was being fair with the
cab companies. "We understand
there are such cab drivers in Ann
Arbor," she said, "and we try our
best to weed them out of our com-
pany. We will cooperate in every
way with the police."

original one was stolen three years

The "duck," technically known
as a "Truck Amphibian 21/2 Ton

truck with auxiliary marine at-
tachments. It is 31 feet long and

LANSING, April 1-A)--The
Senate Finance Committee today
was considering asking the Post-
war Victory Building Board to re-
allocate funds for the continua-
tion of at least seven construction
projects at state hospital arnd
health institutions rather than
wait for legislative action.

Under the title, Barnaby Club,"
a group of students meet every day
for a meal time discussion at Lane
Cuirent topics are discussed by
the group, which meets regularly
for dinner and sometimes for
lunch. A five or ten minute intro-
duction on the topic to be discussed
is given by one of the students or
a member of the faculty who has
been invited to participate.
Edward Davis, who heads the
group, said the name "Barnaby"
was chosen because of the car-
toon which is printed regularly in
The Daily. However the name has
no connection with the activities
of the club and was selected part-
ly "'as 'a joke," he said.
