man's office before an appropriate
prayer was finally found.
But the strange situations which
confront the Broadcasting Service
aren't limited to gathering ma-
terial. Prof. Abbot remarked on
the off-the-record "sound effects"
which sometimes find their way
into a broadcast. The present ra-
dio studios on the fourth floor of
Angell Hall are not entirely
soundproof, so that occasionally
the whistling of a switch engine
on the Ann Arbor Railroad, the
sound of an airplane overhead,
or more recently the noise of the
pneumatic riviters on the Gen-
eral Service Building across the
street make an unwelcome ac-
companiment to "World Master-
pieces" or "Stump the Professors."
"We can't complain too much,
though," Prof. Abbot said. "After
all, they're building our new stu-
dios over there."
Fan Mail
The queer events which seem
to revolve around the Broadcast-
ing Service aren't limited to the
organization either, for letters
have been delivered to the office
addressed to "Dr. Walter Labbit,"
"Waldro Abbott," and even to
"Dr. W., Ann Arbor." In addition
to letters inquiring for informa-
tion or sending for literature
(which average over1,000a week),
Prof. Abbot receives such letters
as one which criticized a state-
ment made on a recent "Stump
the Professor" program to the
effect that the Harvestman (Dad-
dy Tong-legs to the layman) is
an insect. "The Harvestman," as-
serted the writer with solemn in-
dignation, "has eight legs, and as
such is a member of the family
arachnida, and is thus closely re-
lated to spiders."
But, come spiders or switch en-
gines or riveting hammers, Prof.
Abbot remains unperturbed. "Af-
ter all," he maintains modestly,
"it's all part of the job."

Chaplin Movies . .
Four of Charlie Chaplin's old
two-reelers will be included in,
the "Charlie Chaplin Festival,"'

Please Don't Let The Light Go Out

under the whirl



She survived a nightmare of cruelty and terror;
Struggling against cold, starvation and disease, she
was unwanted, hunted, sick and weary almost unto
death. Then your mercy-your generosity-brought
a light of hope into her miserable world. That light
must not go out.
*Thousands upon thousands of her people have
been fed, clothed, and given shelter. Countless wari
ravaged bodies have been mended. Families without
number have been reunited and returned to their
homes. Still others have been helped to find new lives
in Palestine. Many who have found haven in America

have received aid in readjusting themselves: But the
shadow of war and oppression is deep and hard to
erase. The wounds are far greater than anticipated and
much slower to heal:
® Today, because of unforeseen circumstances, the
number of Jewish displaced persons is three times as
great as a year ago. These homeless Jews of Europe
face another crisis in their bitter struggle to survive;
Whether they live or die is squarely up to you: :: and
your conscience. Because the task of mercy is so great;
the United Jewish Appeal this year is asking for more
help than ever before-$170,000,000--a sum that can

be raised only through the utmost 'generosity and
active support on the part of every Anerican;
* In mercy's name, give all you can to the campaign
for the United Jewish Appeal in your community.,
Give more of your time, more of your heart, and more
of your money than you-can afford. No financial offer-
ing you can make, however great, can match the suf-
ferings of those you help:
* Remember, you have given them hope. Now, you
must not take it away. Hope is all they have. You must
not let the light of hope go out.
