THANKSGIVING DINNER:
Furniture Worker To Eat
First Meal in 26 Years

PITTSBURGH, Sept. '25-(1)-
Mickey Schuster lay in a hospital
bed tonight and concentrated on
drawing up a menu for -his first
honest-to-goodness meal in 26
years.
His throat seared by lye he
Observatory
To Be Open to
PublicTonight
Tle Angell Hall observatory
will be open to the public from 8
to 10 p.m. today for observation of
the moon, the Astronomy depart-
ment announced yesterday.
It is the first of four Visitor's
Nights scheduled for this semester.
On October 10, the University Ob-
servatory at Observatory and Ann
streets will hold open house which
will feature a number of star clus-
ters and nebulae as seen through
the 37 inch telescope..
Visitor's Nights are cancelled

Children will not be admitted
unless accompanied by an adult.

swallowed as an infant, the 29-1
year-old Youngstown, O., furni-
ture worker has had to take all
nourishment through a stomach
tube without tasting or chewing
it. His esophagus, through which
food passes to the stomach, was
tightly closed by scar tissue.
Successful Operation
But now two operations, which
his physician called successful,
have altered Mickey's internal ar-
rangements and detoured the clos-
ed portions of his esophagus. The
doctor raised Mickey's stomach
"high in his chest" and connected
it to the esophagus above the
stricture.
"It's not as good as the correct
position," declared the doctor,
"but he will be able to eat normal-
ly."
First Swallow
The patient today had his first
swallow of water in more than a
quarter of a century, and hung
eagerly on the physician's prom-
ise of solid food "in a few days."
"I hope to be eating my first
steak pretty soon," the lean six-
footer declared. "All my friends
have offered me dinners and I
want to take them up on the in-
vitations."

UNION NOTES

from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. everyday

* * *

Beginning October first, pic-

of the University-owned Edwin S.
George Reserve, a two-square-
mile tract of land near Howell,
will be on exhibit in the rotunda
of the University Museums build-
ing.
Of primary interest in the ex-
hibit will be a number of paint-
ings of birds and mammals by Dr.
George M. Sutton, a curator at
the Museum and one of the coun-
try's foremost artists in his field.
Aerial Map
An aerial map of the Reserve,
photographs of typical views,
small cases exhibiting animals
and several publications written
by members of the Museum staff
will be on display.
The George Reserve has since
1930 been an outdoor laboratory
for experiments with birds and
animals by University personnel.
At that time it was given to the
University by Colonel George, a
Detroit financier and personal
friend of members of the Museums
staff.
Untouched Land
The Reserve is a natural and
untouched piece of gently rolling
land supporting a virgin forest, a
pond and a large pasture area.
Not since 1900 has the land been
farmed, and since its ownership
by the University, a seven-foot
fence surrounding it has kept out

Be Exhibited
Original painting, drawing,
sculpture, graphic arts or crafts by
resident and former residents of
Washtenaw County will be on ex-
hibit in the Rackham Galleries
from Oct. 6 through Oct. 17.
The exhibit, which will not con-
tain commercial or student work,
is sponsored by the Ann Arbor
Art Association.
Prizes will be given for the
works considered best by a jury of
professional artists.
Entries are to be delivered di-
rectly to the Rackham Galleries
on Friday, Oct. 3.

WUOM's device for stormy weath-

turns the cylinder, which in turn
causes the canvas to flap breezily.
The station also boasts a foot-

and telephone apparatus, a tam-
bourine to provide a gypsyish
touch, and a "walk board" for re-
sounding footfalls.

Too many sex offenders escape punishment because parents, fearing
unpleasant publicity, refuse to prosecute. This shocking and tragic fact is
revealed by A NEW REPORT ON SEX CRIME in the October Coronet. A
year ago Coronet published an electrifying article on the sex crime prob-
lem with a plan of action for its solution. It brought immediate nationwide
response from the public and officialdom. This new report tells of slow but
sure progress in the fight against this age-old evil. Don't miss reading iti
