SHYLOCKS BEWARE:
Tenants Should Report
Crooked Rent Practices

Crooked landlord practices and
illegally high rents should be re-
ported to the local rent control
office, William W. Hamilton, rent
representative for this area, said
yesterday.
Students particularly should be
"on the watch for gypping," Mr.
Hamilton said. Tenants are pro-
tected by law, until March, from
eviction for reporting, and be-
cause of reduced local personnel
SZell To Lead
Extra Concert
Sunday at Hill
The Cleveland Orchestra, under
the direction of George Szell, will
present the second in the annual
Extra Concert Series at 7 p.m.
Sunday in Hill Auditorium.
The fourth conductor to lead
the Cleveland in its 29 year his-
tory, Szell succeeds Erich Leins-
dorff who held the post from 1943
to 1946. The two other conduc-
tors were Artur Rodzinski, now
with the Chicago Symphony, and
Nikolai Sokoloff, who was with
the Orchestra through its first
fifteen years.
Born in Budapest, Szell was an'
infant prodigy, giving his first
public concert at the age of 11.
In 1929, he became General
Musical Director of the German
Opera House at Prague. At this
time, he began to make appear-
ances as guest conductor, leading
most of the large European or-
chestras.
Since his New York debut in
1941 as guest conductor with the
NBC Symphony Orchestra, Szell
has appeared with the orchestras
in a number of American cities,
including {Boston, Chicago, and
Detroit.
The program Sunday will con-
sist of Symphony No. 4 in D minor,
Op. 120, Schumann; Dance of the
Bells ,from Salome, Strauss; and
Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op.
92, Beethoven.

it is up to the victims to report
crooked landlords, he pointed out.
Swindle Methods
There are several methods used
in Ann Arbor to swindle tenants,
Mr. Hamilton continued. These in-
clude side payments, insistence
on purchase of worthless articles
as a condition of tenancy, and
large advance payments.
It is illegal for landlords to re-'
quest advance payment for more
than one rent period-whether the
rent is paid weekly or monthly.
The tenant may offer to pay in
advance for another similar pe-
riod, but payment for more than
that is clearly illegal, Mr. Hamil-
ton explained.
Few Crooked Landlords
"Of course," he continued, "few
landlords are actually crooks. We
have 17,000 registered rented
dwelling units in Ann Arbor and
Ypsilanti, and there are many
more which are legally exempt
from controls. Most landlords will
take the legitimate method of rais-
ing the rent, which they are forced
to do by increased costs, and we
make many such adjustments."
If rent controls go off in March,
the housing shortage in Ann Ar-t
bor will really hurt, Mr. Hamiltonj
said. The city is considered a no-
torious housing hot spot, he added.
Students Will
Tour Chicago
Today is the deadline for in-
terested foreign and American stu-
dents to make reservations for a
weekend trip to Chicago which
will be conducted by the Interna-
tional Center, Nov. 14 to 16.
The trip will include visits' to
important points of interest in
and around the city, in line with
the Center's program of acquaint-
ing foreign students with all
phases of American life. Students
will travel by chartered bus.
Reservations or further infor-
mation may be obtained by con-
tacting Homer Underwood at the
Center.

Warrant officers, flight officers
and enlisted personnel of the first
three grades who served honorably
for at least six months on active
service in the United States Army
or one of its components between
Dec. 7, 1941 and June 30, 1947 may
apply for a commission in the Of-
ficers Reserve Corps.
War Department regulations re-
quire applicants to be at least 21
years of age and not more than
28 years of age at the time of their
appointment in the Reserve.

The Veterans Administration is
now the custodian of more than
53 million Army chest x-rays of
World War II veterans which it
will use in a long-range campaign
against tuberculosis.
The films, which comprise the
largest single group of x-ray films
in the world, will assist the VA
in its study of tuberculosis among
veterans and will also be available
for determining the eligibility of
veterans for compensation.
In addition to the Army chest
x-rays films, the VA has on file
x-rays of all its patients and many
of its employes.
*" * *
A series of studies compiled by
the VA and published by dental
schools recently reveal methods of
forecasting success in dentistry
training.
Results of the survey indicate
that veterans attending dental
schools stand a better-than-aver-
age chance of completing their
training if:
1. They made high grades in
their pre-dental college courses,
particularly in biology and natural
sciences;
2. They score well in mental
ability tests. These tests are cn-
sidered most reliable in predict-
ing success in dental theory
courses.
3. They achieve high scores in
mechanical aptitude and dexterity
tests because better than half of
their dental training consists of
courses requiring manual dexter-
ity.
4. They reveal an aptitude for
dentistry in interest tests.
Enrollment in
U.S. Colleges
Sets New High
The University record enroll-
ment this fall has been repeated
throughout the nation to estab-
lish an all-time high of almost
2,300,000 resident students, ac-
cording to the U.S. Office of Ed-
ucation.
Reporting on the annual sur-
vey of college-university enroll-
ment, the Education Office in
the Federal Security Agency re-
vealed that national enrollment
is up 11 per cent over 1946, with
all groups of institutions show-
ing substantial increases. The
greatest hike was registered by
Negro schools which reported a 26
per cent increase.
Among individual schools, New
York University topped the list
with an amazing 46,312 students.
The University of California was
second with 43,000. Four other
mid-western universities reported
enrollments above 20,000.
In announcing results of the
survey, Dr. John W. Studebaker,
U.S. Commissioner of Education,
commented, "The continual in-

crease in higher education enroll-
ments means that our colleges
and universities are going a long
way toward making up the na-
tional deficit in trained man-
power caused by the drawing off
of college-age youth during the
war."

culation, Garg himself has chosen
to clip the latest in humor from
his extensive files of exchange

MEDICAL TALK:
Harvard Embryolo gist to Give
Lecture on Recent Researchr

I

Dr. Arthur T. Hertig, associate
obstetrician and assistant profes-
sor of pathology at Harvard Med-
ical School, will present the re-
sults of some of his outstanding
research on human embryos un-
der two weeks of age in an illus-
trated lecture at 4:15 p.m. tomor-
row in the Natural Science Audi-
torium.
The lecture, which is open to the
public, is under the sponsorship of
the Department of Anatomy and
the Medical School.
Early Stage Research
Dr. Hertig, seeing the great sci-
entific interest attached to se-
curing young human embryos, has
been searching for early stages of
human development for about 12
years in conjunction with Dr.
John Rock, gynecological surgeon
at the Brookline Free Hospital for
Women.
Previous to the work of Dr. Her-
tig, the earliest known human em-
bryo was the "Miller Embryo,"
which was assumed to have a fer-
tilization age of about 12 days. The
nature of the processes in the
phases of human development ear-
Tier than this had to be inferred
from the study of animals, accord-
ing to Dr Bradley M. Patten,
chairman of the anatomy depart-
ment of the Medical School.
Youngest Embryo
The youngest human embryo
which has yet been described in
medical literature is of about seven
and one-half day fertilization age
and is known to embryologists as
the "Hertig-Rock Embryo" after
the two investigators responsible
for securing it for study.
Doctors Hertig and Rock are

still actively at work in this field
and are now studying specimens
younger than any as yet described.
