Ann Arborite
Is Candidate
For Congress
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of
a series of articles on the principal
Local candidates of all political parties
in the coming election.
To run against the Republican in-
cumbent Earl C. Michener for repre-
sentative from this district, the
Democrats have picked a young Ann
Arbor lawyer and veteran of World
War II, William R. Kelley.
Claiming that American foreign
policy should be non-partisan, Kelley,
a U. of M. graduate, has come out
strongly for the Byrnes-Truman for-
eign policy stand, adding -that Wal-
lace should have kept quiet under the
circumstances. He does not think,
though, that any part of the labor or
liberal vote has been alienated by the
Wallace resignation.
Wants Labor Tribunals
One of Kelley's main planks calls
for the formation of permanent labor
tribunals appointed by the President
to handle labor-management dis-
putes, which he claims would take the
disputes out of politics and put it in
the judicial branch of the govern-
ment. Kelley, however, was vague on
how he planned to enforce the deci-
sions of the tribunals.
Preferring to be called a liberal
rather than a Democrat, Kelley made
it clear that he would act independ-
ently if elected and would not be
afraid to criticize administration pol-
icy. He said that he was not in fa-
vor of all the New Deal legislation
citing the attempt to pack the Su-
preme Court as an example.
OPA 'Emasculated'
Although Kelley believes in the
gradual relaxation of OPA controls,
he stated that the present law had
emasculated OPA.
Kelley said he believed in the prin-
ciple of FEPC but would not commit
himself on the act itself. He is for
anti-poll tax legislation, but feels
that a constitutional amendment is
needed, claiming that the national
government would be infringing on
states' rights otherwise.
Urging a policy of non-intervention
in Palestine, Kelley said that the
United States "should not pull the
English chestnutsout of the fire."
Opimistic on Chances
Kelley was optimistic about his
election chances, saying that he had
a fair chance because he felt he had
the veteran and labor vote behind
While in the Army, Kelley rose to
the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and
served two and a half years in North
Africa and Italy. He has had 12 years
of law exprience, is married and has
one daughter.

In the past the association has
concerned itself primarily with Negro
discrimination wherever it existed,
but this year, in recognition of the
fact that there are many other groups
on campus besides the Negro who are
subject to racial prejudice and intol-

the ultimate success of this program

"the association asks that all stu-

combating racial and religious disin-
tegration attend the meeting tomor-

During the past year, the activities
of IRA included a survey of racial
discrimination in the restaurants
and stores of Ann Arbor, a campaign
to publicize the Columbia, Tenn. case
and aid the victim of the attempted
lynching there, and a series of lec-
tures on the techniques for eliminat-

Is Implicated
In Draft Case
Jeanne B. Foster, a social science
teacher at Slauson Junior High
School, resigned her position yester-
day after being implicated in the ar-
rest here Friday night of a Pontiac
man sought for five years for failure
to report for induction itno the army.
Robert Guerin, head of the Detroit
office of the Federal Bureau of In-
vestigation, had announced earlier
that Miss Foster faces possible
charges of harboring a draft dodger
as the man, Lloyd I. Chavis, who was
apprehended Friday in Miss Foster's
apartment. pleaded guilty to avoiding
induction at his arraignment in De-
troit yesterday before Federal Judge
Theodore Levin.
Chavis admitted receiving about
$15,000 from Miss Foster and Opal,
his divorced wife, during the last five
years to aid him in avoiding appre-
The school teacher told agents, ac-
cording to Guerin, that "the reason I
didn't turn him in is that he is a
fine and useful person with unusual
capabailities in the fields of litera-
ture, art and music. The world has
enough ditch-diggers and soldiers."

Science in Review

Elmo's Fire
The eerie, greenish-blue phospho-
rescent electrical discharge seen
around barns, steel structures, air-
planes and ships at night, known
commonly at St. Elmo's Fire, also
causes radio static when airplanes
plow through particles of ice, snow,
dust or thunderhead cloud-forma-
Intensive investigations by scien-
tists at the Wold-Chamberlain Air-
port in Minneapolis show that St.
Elmo's Fire, which is often vividly
luminescent on propeller tips, an-
tenna, masts, wing tips, and other
projections,' can be eliminated by
continuous discharging of the static
electricity that produces the phe-
nomenon by means of 12-inch-long
silver-impregnated cotton wicks ex-
posed to the air stream and by em-
ploying a polyethylene plastic insu-
lation on the radio antennas and
their connections. Only about a
dozen wicks are needed per plane to
clarify the static.

German Science
Some of the German technologi-
cal and scientific developments
which occurred firing the last
war include production of adipic
acid esters for lubricating-oil com-
ponents for use in special sub-zero
weather, a method for igniting in-
ternal combustion engines without
using spark plugs, soap substitutes
in the form of cellulose ethers and
improvements in vicose rayon by
addition of fish protein.
The internal combustion engines
were ignited by the so-called "Ring
Process" and were designed to
eliminate spark plug fouling and
ignition difficulties in airplanes at
extreme altitudes. Ignition occurs
by spraying a liquid either into the
combustion chamber simultane-
ously with the compression stroke.
The ether then ignites and sets off
the gasoline, reducing knocking at
the same time. An auxiliary set of
spark plugs is necessary to warm
up the engine in freezing weather,

Fluorescence Used
Ringworm of the scalp is now read-
ily detected by use of fluorescence,
according to Dr. Rhoda W. Behham,
of New York. The scalp is irradiated
with filtered ultraviolet light (artifi-
cial sunlight) and if it is inected
with ringworm, it emits a brilliant
greenish fluorescense.
Alcohol from Coal
An Australian inventor, Paul X.
Spillane, has been granted a U. S.
patent on his process for synthesiz-
ing alcohol from coal. The proce-
dure involves the use of an ultra-
high frequency electrical impulse
in conjunction with the high tem-
peratures and pressures customar-
ily employed in organic syntheses
in the presence of catalysts.
Sugar Refining Note
Ion-exchange resins have been re-

ported to be superior to older meth-
ods of sugar refining, according to
Journal of Chemical Education re-
ports. The present process of sugar
refining involves "screening, filtering,
precipitating some of the impurities
by additions of lime, removing a por-
tion of lime by acidification, fur-
ther filtering, evaporating under
vacuum, crystallizing, dissolving again
in water, recrystallization, and fin-
ally, drying. Many of these steps are
repeated two and three times in or-
der to eke out the maximum quantity
of our familiar white crystals before
continued repetition becomes eco-
nomically unfeasible."
The new process, according 'to the
publication For Instance, promises
to be of great value owing to the in-
creased yield of refined sugar, higher
value for recovered molasses which is
suitable for human consumption as
an edible syrup in place of the pre-
viously-obtained "black-strap," and
savings in cost of processing. In the
new procedure, the -raw sugar-cane
juices are passed sucicessively through
beds of cation- and anion-absorbing
resins. Subsequent concentration by
evaporation and crystallization re-
sults in clean, white table sugar and
delicious molasses syrup:

rockets might be constructed, they

Prof. Bach mann
Honored by Nay
Dr. Werner E. Bachmann of the
chemistry department yesterday re-
ceived a certificate from the United
States Navy in recognition of work
done at the University in cooperation
with the Naval Ordnance Depart-
ment during the war.
A letter from Rear Admiral G. F.
Hussey Jr., Chief of the Bureau of
Ordnance, which accompanied the
certificate, stated the award was pre-
sented for "successful research and
development of improved propellents
and explosives."
