WATCH THAT MATCH:
Hunters May Be Drafted
As Fire Fighters by State

By RAY COURAGE
"Greetings" from the state con-
servation department may be
forthcoming to hunters who fail
to comply with fire precautions,
according to Prof. W. F. Rams-
dell of the forestry and conserva-
tion department.
Although the emergency situa-
tion has been declared over, fol-
lowing heavy rains, anynew dang-
er would make such rules neces-
sary again.

Jaques Cartier
Will Present
Stage Scenes
Dramatizing progress in the
theatre from its birth to the pres-
ent day, Jaques Cartier, "One Man
Theatre," will present the second
Oratorical Association presenta-
tioh of the year at 8:30 p.m. Mon-
day in Hill Auditorium.
Portraying great historical fig-
ures in significant dramatic ex-
cerpts, Cartier will trace the
growth of drama from obscure re-
ligious rites, through classic Greek
plays, medieval mystery dramas,
Italian comedies, Shakespeare,
Moliere, and the Restoration, to
modern stage and screen presen-
tations.
Each scene will be presented in
authentic costume. Cartier will
offer glimpses of historical char-
acters who influenced the theatre:
Sophocles, Louis XIV of France
and Charles II of England.
Such American institutions as
the music hall, vaudeville and even
burlesque will be interpreted for
the audience. Among the actors
portrayed will be John Wilkes
Booth, William. C. Macready, Web-
er and Fields, George Arliss and
the Barrymores.
Tickets for "Theatre Cavalcade"
may be purchased from 10 a.m.
to noon, Saturday, and from 10
a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sunday at the
Hill Auditorium box office.

men to be drafted are often the
hunters, for they are closest, and
are usually suitably dressed for the
job," Prof. Ramsdell said.
Michigan has one of the best
fire fighting organizations in the
country. The fire fighters are un-
der the Field Administration Divi-
sion of the Conservation Depart-
ment and are broken down into
small groups, each assigned to a
definite area.
U.S. Forest Service
Besides the state fire fighters,
there are also units from the Uni-
ted States Forest Service. Cooper-
ation between these two groups
has led to successful minimizing
of fires, Prof. Ramsdell asserted.
Fire fighters in Michigan have
an. added advantage over many
other states because of the com-
parative ease with which they
can get water. The driest part of
Michigan's forest are in the "sand"
lands where the water level is
around fifteen feet below the sur-
face.
Michigan fire crews can get at
this water within a half an hour
or less through ingenious methods
and equipment developed by the
State Forest Fire Experiment Sta-
tion.
Public Aid Needed
"Despite the good fire fighting
equipment," which includes heavy
trucks, tractors, fire plows, high
pressure pumping units, and spec-
ially trained men "it would be im-
possible to prevent fires without
the aid of the public," Prof. Rams-
dell added.
As for natural causes of fires,
Prof. Ramsdell pointed out that
Michigan and the New England
states are seldom the victims of
lightning-caused fires. Instead,
fires are primarily caused by care-
less people who disregard fire pre-
cautions.
Hunters who will be in the forest
danger area, and who plan to pay
little attention to Gov. Sigler's
warning, should remember that if
they smoke carelessly, or fail to
put out their campfires, they will
probably be among the first draft-
ed "volunteers" should a fire break
out, Prof. Ramsdell concluded.

DEBATES-Oxford University debaters who will speak here at
4 p.m. today in the Rackham Lecture Hall, are (left to right)
David Kenneth Harris, the Hon. Anthony Neil Wedgwood Benn,
and Sir Edward Charles Gurney Boyle.
REGIONAL MEETING:
Conference Advises Co-ops
To Think Twice About Politics

By JOHN MORRIS
Campus co-ops should be cau-
tious about taking stands on poli-
tical issues.
That was the consensus at a'
co-op conference held in Chicago
last weekend, according to Tania
Turkish Holiday
To Be Celebrated
The twenty-fourth anniversary
of the Turkish Republic will be
celebrated at 8 p.m. today in Rm.
316 of the Union with a program
which is open to all students.
Professors Howard M. Ehrmann,
Andrei A. Lovanov-Rostovsky and
Preston W. Slosson of the history
department and Prof. Lawrence
Preuss of the political science de-
partment will be guest speakers.
The topic for discussion will be
"The Most Important Phases of
the Near Eastern and Balkan Con-
flicts with Emphasis on the Pow-
er of the UN."
Prof. Calhoun To Speak
A second organizational meet-
ing of the newly-formed campus
chapter of American Society of
Heating and Ventilating Engineers
will be held at 7:30 p.m. tomor-
row in the Union.
The program will feature a talk
by Prof. F. N. Calhoun, speaking
on "Radiant Heating."

Pytkovsky, one of Michigan's 25
delegates.
But all were agreed that indivi-
dual co-op members should be
active in promoting co-op prin-
ciples as they affect the commun-
ity, she said.
Called by the Midwest Federa-
tion of Campus Cooperatives, dele-
gates were present at Chicago
from campuses throughout Mich-
igan, Indiana, Ohio, and Illinois.
Political Action
Discussion on the question of
political action was centered on
the co-op principle forbidding
stands on political issues.
Jerry Voorhis secretary of the
U.S. Cooperative League, in a key-
note address to the panel, said
that most members felt that co-
ops should stand for issues that
promise to benefit all the people,
but that idle resolution-making
would lead nowhere.
Co-Educational Dorms
Michigan delegates were intro-
duced to annother innovation in
Chicago when they were housed
in co-educational ;dormitories, Mel-
vin Bondy, another delegate, not-
ed.
Run on the cooperative plan,
these houses provide separate
sleeping floors for men and
women, but all eat together in a
large dining hall, he said. Three
of the five Chicago cooperatives
are co-educational.
Michigan's co-ops, which will
be celebrating their 15th anniver-
sary next month, are the most
highly centralized system repre-
sented at the conference, and are
probably the first organized cam-
pus co-ops in the nation, Bondy
commented.

Machine Use
May Change
RuralLiving
Labor Drop a Result,
Educators Are Told
Rural communities may be hit
hard in the next ten years as ma-
chinery takes over much of the
farmer's work, Prof. Theodore W.
Schultz, chairman of the eco-
nomics department of the Univer-
sity of Chicago said yesterday.
"The rural community is in a
state of flux," Prof. Schultz said
in an address before a rural edu-
cation conference here. "The eco-
nomic structure is changing. It's
simply in the cards that it will
take less and less human effort to
produce the food and feed that
our farms supply."
Education Affected
Education in rural areas will di-
rectly feel the decline in the farm
labor force, Prof. Schultz asserted.
To meet the situation, he de-
clared that consolidation of com-
mtAnities and recombination of
rural churches, health depart-
ments and other services may be
required.
Decrease Evident
Prof. Schultz said that the de-
crease in the number of farm la-
borers is already evident, with ag-
ricultural workers totaling only
15 per cent of American labor, as
compared to 20 per cent in 1940.
"This decline has by no means
run its course," he said. "Half of
American agriculture is still har-
boring four to five million indi-
viduals who are earning very low
incomes. Considerable readjust-
ment of agriculture is required as
machinery becomes available. This
will release these millions."
McCormick
Tells Mind
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 28--(")
-Robert R. McCormick, editor
and publisher of the Chicago
Tribune, said today he would not
support Gen. Dwight D. Eisenbow-
er, Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New
York, and Harold Stassen, for-
mer Minnesota Governor as pos-
sible Presidential candidates be-
cause they "are part of the Wall
Street crowd."
He said that Tribune had not
picked a candidate, but added that
he had no objections to Sen. Rob-
ert Taft of Ohio; Sen. Edward
Martin of Pennsylvania; John
Bricker of Ohio; Gen. Douglas
McArthur, and Speaker Joe Mar-
tin, of Massachusetts. All are Re-
publicans.
