Student Develops New Plan'
To Beat Shortage of Women
By J;O ANNE MISNER
A new technique for combating
the lop-sided ratio of men to
women here is getting results.
But the man behid the plan is
unaware of its success.
Hackett To Be
In Song Recital
Le Cercle Francais
To Present Program
Prof. Arthur Hackett, of the
University music school, will pre-
sent % recital of 1 ench songs as
part of Le Cercle 'ancais' series
of lectures in French culture, at
4:10 p.m., Tuesday, in the Assem-
bly Room of the Rackham Bldg.
The recital will consist of works
by Debussy, Ravel, Faure, Szulc,
Hahn, Letorey, and Franc, and
will be sung entirely in French.
Prof. Hackett had appeared
professionally many times before
becoming associated with the Uni-
versity. He has given concerts in
both, America and Europe with
most of the major symphony or-
chestras and with the Lamoureux
Orchestra in Paris. He also sang
with the Paris Grand Opera.
Tiekets for the program may be
obtained from the secretary's of-
fice, in the Romance Language
Bdg. Members of the French Club
will be admitted to the program
free upon showing their member-
It seems that one of our male
students became interested in a
popular young Martha Cook-er,
but his anonymous phone call
asking for a date was given the
However, the campus Romeo
had persistence and ingenuity. He
began a barrage of "love-letters"
- one of the strangest on record.
The coed in question is being
beseiged with fan mail, ranging
all the way from a circular ad-
vertising personalized toilet soap
to a complete salesman's kit, urg-
ing her to start NOW to sell her
friends beautiful, stylish dresses
at $6.98 each.
Yesterday she received a bulky
set of records and detailed dia-
grams for exercises explaining
how to reduce to music. The set
would be hers for a mere seven-
teen dollars in easy payments.
In addition, she received a bot-
tle of gray hair tint. She says she
is beginning to need it.
By now, the bewildered girl
would even be willing to accept a
date with him, if only to relieve
the over-burdened mailman. But
since the bashful Romeo refuses
to reveal his identity, she guesses
the barrage will continue.

went into service the week be-'
fore the holiday recess. The East
Engineering addition is largely
occupied now with remaining sec-
tions slated for use by March 1.
Between semesters equipment will
be moved into the engineering ad-
dition and elevators are now be-
ing installed in the unit.
Work has proceeded slowly on
the Chemistry addition because of
the difficulties involved in install-
ing technical equipment and
scarce plumbing. First and sec-
ond floor partitions are in with
work going ahead on third floor
partitions, heating equipment and
elevators. Best estimates place
next fall as the Chemistry build-
ing occupancy date.
Full Speed Ahead
Construction work at the Bus-
iness Administration building has
swung into high gear during the
last few weeks in an effort to
meet a partial occupancy date set
for Feb. 1. The South Wing, con-
taining classrooms, is slated for
occupancy by that date to handle
overloadedwbusiness school en-
rollment. Work is now being ad-
vanced on the most essential sec-
tions of the building with no oc-
cupancy date set for the tower,
auditorium, library and other
parts of the unit.
Some portions of the Food
Service unit have already gone
into operation but no date has
been set for completion of the
building. The new unit will great-
ly enlarge overtaxed food storage
facilities at the University. Cur-
rently food served in the Univer-
sity dining halls is stored at the
The Imposing General Service
Building, now at the 60 per cent
mark, is slated for use by late
summer or fall. Currently windows
are being installed in the unit.
Farthest behind schedule is the
new women's dormitory which got
a late start. Completion date for
the unit is hazy yith estimates
ranging from eight to 12 months.
University administrators point-
ed out that the supplementary ap-
propriation, to be requested at
the March legislative session, will
be used to pay construction costs
on the four education units and
the food storage building.
Dormitories are built on a self-
liquidating basis from private
loans. Rents from all University
dorms are pooled to pay operat-
ing expenses plus interest and
principal on the loans.

Veterans attending the Univer-
sity under Public Law 16 must
file reports of absence for the fall
semester the first day of the final
exam period, Jan. 19, Veterans
Service Bureau announced yester-
Absence reporttcards may be
mailed or submitted to the Vet -i
erans Service Bureau, Rm. 1514,
Unless veterans file reports,
their records will be considered in-
complete and leave will not be
approved until they obtain state-
ments from the University certi-
fying the number of absences
charged to them.
Veterans Administration urges
student veterans to include a
claim or insurance number when
communicating with the VA.
If veterans are uncertain of
these numbers, sufficient identifi-
cation including service serial
number, date of birth, full name
and address, service rank and
organization and date of dis-
charge, should be given.
VA pointed out that failure of
veterans to properly identify
themselves, makes it difficult for
the Veterans Administration to
give prompt attention to letters.
Deadline for the reinstatement
of lapsed GI insurance has been
postponed to July 31, 1948.
To reinstate prior to that date,
veterans are required to ceritfy
that their health is as good as on
the date the policy lapsed, and to
pay two monthly premiums.
