Village FEPC
Goal Will Be
The goal of 1,000 signatures on pe-
titions being circulated at Willow
Village for a state Fair Employment
Practices Commission will be
he reached if the present trend con-
tinues, Ollie Lyon, chairman of the
Village FEPC campaign, predicted
Lyon said that one solicitor had ob-
tained 40 signatures out of 51 regis-
tered voters he contacted. If all so-
licitors do as well, Lyon said that the
goal of 1,000 would be reached, as
every one of the Village's 1,700 regis-
tered voters will be asked to sign.
The house-to-house canvas at the
Village is being undertaken jointly
by the Willow Village AVC chapter
and the Willow Run Citizens Com-
mittee. The chief problem that so-
licitors are up against is that many
people do not realize what the Fair
Employment Practices Commission is
or how it would operate, Lyon said.

Prof. Bromage
Cites Need for
State Reform .
A state must first improve its own
legislative and administrative proc-
esses if it wishes to 'arrest the march
to federal centralization," accord-
ing to Prof. Arthur W. Bromage, of
the political science department.
Prof. Bromage spoke in Philadel-
phia at a meeting of the State Gov-
ernment Clinic of the National Mu-
nicipal League.
He listed as the basic problems of
state reorganization those of ad-
ministrative reform. In Michigan he
believes this should be achieved
through constitutional amendment.
Measures which must be included
in such an amendment are: (1) the
short ballot; (2) four-year term for
governor; (3) consolidation of state
agencies into approximately 20 de-
partments responsible to the gov-
ernor, and (4) authorization to the
governor to accomplish further re-
organization by executive orders,
subject to review by the legislature,
Prof. Bromage said.
Teacher Urgres
Music Interest
For Chld Ireni
Any child, with or without talent,
can learn to like and appreciate
good music, Marjorie Truelove Mac-
kown, of the Eastman School of Mu-
sic faculty, said yesterday in an ad-
dress before the last session of the
Michigan Music Teachers Associa-
tion's annual convention.
Speaking on "Creative Theory for
Children," Miss Mackown said that
the talented child needs to be trained
in writing down his compositions,
whereas untalented children may be
taught; to hear pitch relatively well,
thereby gaining appreciation of mu-
By experimentation, Miss Mackown
has found that feeling for rhythm and
intellect can be combined to teach
"unmusical" children to understand
and like music.
At a business meeting before the
lecture, Prof. John Lowell of the
music school was elected correspond-
ing secretary for the Association.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of
series of three articles on the metal
processing department laboratories.
The metal processing department
of the engineering college received a
definite boost recently with the addi-
tion of a great quantity of valuable
equipment, including machine tools,
cutters and inspection equipment.
The value of the instructional
equipment, received during the
past summer and fall from the
U. S. Army Ordnance Department
without cost, has been placed at
several hundred thousand dollars.
The donations were authorized un-
der a law permitting the Ordnance
Department, upon termination of
war contracts, to present equipment
to educational institutions tohbe used
for pre-induction training. The do-
nations were made with the approval
of the state superintendent of public
instruction and the training officer
of the Army Service Command Dis-
Much of the new equipment has
now been installed in the metal
processing laboratories in the south
wing of the East Engineering build-
Some fifty machine tools of mod-
ern design, having a total value of
about a quarter of a million dol-
lars were received by the depart-
ment, according to Prof. Orlan W.
Boston, head of the department,
who spent two months negotiating
in Detroit for the equipment. Most
of them, he emphasized, had been
used less than two years and are
in excellent condition. Some were
practically new with little use in
industry and few show the hard
physical wear and tear of mass
The department also received a
great number and variety of cutting
tools worth much more than the de-
partment's previous total inventory.
These cutting tools will be used to
set up the new machine tools for
routine' instruction and in demon-
strating manufacturing methods.
Although the new equipment was
obtained without cost from the Ord-
nance Department, the metal process-
ing department has encountered
numerous headaches as a result of
the gift.
It was necessary to clean all pieces
of equipment thoroughly as they had
been coated with a thick grease for
protection during shipping and
Mines Found off Albania
LONDON, Nov. 13-(JP)-The ad-
miralty reported tonight that the
Royal Navy swept up 22 moored mines
today in the Corfu Channel off the
Albanian Coast, where two British de-
stroyers recently struck mines with a
loss of more than 40 lives.

Engineering College Receives
Valuable Machine Equipment

Several of the machines weigh
more than 17,000 pounds. In some
cases workers were forced to dear
down part of the laboratory walls
in order to get the new machines
into place.
Shipping costs of all the equip-
ment were paid by the department.
The greatest expense involved in the
installation of the new equipment
involved' the electric power supply.
