YOUTH FESTIVAL:
Students from 40 Countries
To Attend Prague Conference

Student and youth delegations
from more than 40 countries will
attend the first World Youth Fes-
tival to be held this summer at
Prague, Czechoslavakia.
Sponsored by the World Feder-
ation of Democratic Youth and
the International Union of Stu-
dents, which was formed at Prague
last summer, the Festival has been
cited as a "further expression of
the desire of college students ev-
erywhere to participate in the in-
ternational student community."
Variety of Plans
Plans for the festival range
from lectures and discussions by
student leaders on science, stu-
dent publications, student organ-
izations and youth activities to
cultural, sports and recreational
activities such as films, theatre,
ballet, international competitions,
hikes and tours.
The delegations will participate
in other activities to be held at
Prague this summer including the
International Drama and Film
Festival sponsored by the Czech-
oslovak Government.
Construotian Brigades
Groups of delegates will form
brigades to help in reconstruction
work, forestry and harvesting. A
trip is planned to Lidice to help
rebuild the village which was
completely razed by the Nazis dur-
ing the war.
The United States has a quota
of 500 students and young peo-
ple to form the official Ameri-
can delegation. All young peo-
ple who represent some phase of
American life are eligible to ap-
ply. Student delegates should be
representatives of entire student

bodies and should be prepared to
take part actively in the Festival
activities.
Submit Applications
Persons desiring to attend the
Festival must submit applications
to the United States Committee'
for the World Youth Festival, 144
Bleeker St., New York City, before
June 1. No one may attend the
Festival unless he is a member
of the official delegation. Appli-
cation blanks may be obtained
from the Committee.
Two troop transport ships have
been made available by the gov-
ernment through the Maritime
Commission and the Office of In-
ternational Cooperation of the
State Departm nt to provide
transportation for student and
youth travel to Europe.
Leave in July
The American delegation will
leave the United States sometime
during the first week of July and
will return early in September.
During the six weeks to be spent
in Europe, the delegation will tra-
vel under the auspices of the Com-
mittee.
Fees for transportation and ac-
commodation charges must be
turned in to the Committee Office
by June 15. Registration fees are
due with applications June 1.
Interested persons may obtain
further information by writing to
the Committee's New York offices.
Because of a continuing short-
age of goods, England's clothing
industry has been unable to fol-
low the lead of American and
French fashion designers in
lengthening skirts several inches.

Vet Transfer
Rules Revealed
By Waldrop
Students Must Get
Eligibility Certificates
Robert S. Waldrop, director of
the Veterans Service Bureau. has
announced the procedure to be
followed by University veterans
planning to transfer to another
training institution and continue
receiving G. I. Bill benefits.
In order to avoid delay and un-
necessary hardship at the time of
transfer, veterans transfering
from the University must secure
a supplemental Certificate of Eli-
gibility, to be presented to the
new institution ,from the Veter-
a n s Administration Guidance
Center, Rm. 100, Rackham Bild-
ing; or by writing to the Regional
Office, Chief, Registration Sec-
tion, Veterans Administration, De-
troit.
Requests for supplemental cer-
tificates should include the veter-
an's C-number, address, the name
of the school previously attended
under the G. I. Bill and the date
at which schooling there was
terminated, the course being pur-
sued, the name of the school to
which transfer is being made, the
date of registration there, the
course to be taken and reasons
for transfer.
Failure to secure the supple-
mental certificate prior to the new
registration will mean a lapse in
subsistence and school expense
payments by the government.
Certificates will be issued only
when transfer does not involve
a change of course. Veterans
planning a change of course after
transfer should report to Rm. 100,
Rackham Building.

Ronald Johnson, owner of
Percy, the Elevator dog, is having
dog trouble again.
Percy recently had pups, much
to Johnson's surprise and embar-
rassment, and although they
were all given away, one of the
little rascals proved to be too much
for its owners. Now Johnson has
to find a new owner.
He's really not a bad looking
little fellow," Johnson said "He's
got white feet, a white-tipped tail
and a white face."
He's a clever mutt, too, accord-
ing to Johnson. "He rides the ele-
vator basket just as confidently as
his mother-we didn't even have
to teach him."
The puppy has no name as yet.
Johnson has tried "Buffy,' be-
cause of his color, and "Trippy,"
because "he falls all over him-
self."
Until Johnson finds an owner,
the puppy is in the clutches of the
Humane Society.
Johnson's landlord, W. E. Arm-

strong, who thought the Percy's
presence disturbed his customers
in his restaurant below Johnson's
apartment, has made no comment
on the puppies, according to John-'
son.
Anyone who would like to take
the homeless "Buffy" or "Trippy"
may call Johnson at 2-1371.

ter McCoy and Prof. Marguerite

In case of rain, the Sing will

cording to Henry Meyer, president
of the IFC.
