West Quad Men Begin
Rival Radio Broadcasts

By MARY STEIN
Not to be out-done by the East
Quadders who recently set up a
"radio station," three enterprising
West Quad residents have started
experimental broadcasts from
their own studio iri Michigant
House.
Brad Stone, Fred Renley, and
Bill MacMillan, all lit school
freshmen, are the co-backers of
new station WQMH-the call let-
ters stand for West Quad Mich-
igan House. The Studio, in Room
Prof. Hobbs

On UGlaciers
Prof. Emeritus William H.
Hobbs, of the geology department,
will deliver an illustrated lecture
on "The Ancient Glaciers of
America in the Light of Recent
Studies of an Existing One" at
8:00 p.m. today in the Rackham
Amphitheatre.
The existing glacier is one of
two glaciers of continental dimen-
sions and is located in Greenland.
Prof. Hobbs directed expeditions
to that island for the University in
1926, 1927 and 1928. He has also
made extended cruises to mandat-
ed Pacific Islands and was an ex-
change professor at the Techni-
sche Hoogeschool in Delft, 1921-
22.
Prof. Hobbs has just published a
book whose subject matter is re-
lated to his lecture topic. It is en-
titled "Glacial Studies of the
Pleistocene of North America."
In addition, he has written 12
other books, including "The World
War and its Consequences," with
an introduction by Theodore
Roosevelt; and biographies of
Leonard Wood and Adm. Robert
E. Peary. Prof. Hobbs has also
been associate editor of "The
Journal of Geology" since 1909.
The lecture is being given under
the auspices of Sigma Xi and will
be illustrated with slides. It is
open to the public.

S. I. Hayakawa
To Talk Today
"The Task of the Listener," will
be the subject of a talk to be giv-
en by Dr. S. I. Hayakawa, well-
known semanticist, at 4 p.m. today
in the Rackham Lecture Hall,
sponsored by the Department of
Speech.
Dr. Hayakawa, who is associate
professor of English at Illinois In-
stitute of Technology, received his
bachelor of arts degree from Man-
itoba University and his master's
degree at McGill. He obtained his
doctor's at the University of Wis-
consin and is now a reviewer for
the Chicago Sun. Also the author
of "Language in Action," which
was a Book of the Month Club se-
lection in 1941, Dr. Hayakawa re-
cently became president of the
Chicago Consumers Cooperative,
Incorporated.

the President's military adviser,
Maj. Gen. Harry A. Vaughn, be-
fore we leave- Washington. We're
looking forward to a full explana-
tion of the disappointing state-
ment that was included in Mr.
Truman's message.
pollector's Item
The . Ann Arbor snowballs,
launched from the University of
Michigan's Diagonal last week,
have become quite the collector's
items in these parts. Not an hour
passes that somebody doesn't ask
about the snowballs. The plastic
pellet's message-that we've got
as much chance as a snowball in
hell of living on Government sub-
sistence-seems to be catching on,
too.
All we need now is a new bar-
rage of letters from stdent veter-
ans to their Congressmen urging
subsistence raises.
Three Contractors Bid
To Build Courthouse
Three bids, ranging around $2,-
000,000, for the construction of a
new five-story courthouse for
Washtenaw County have been re-
ceived by the County Board of Su-
pervisors. '
0. W. Burke Co. submitted the
lowest bid, $1,960,000. A. W. Kut-
sche Co. was next with $1,995,000.
W. E. Wood Co. set a price of $2,-
100,000. All three bidders are De-
troit firms.
The question of a new court-
honse to renlace the nresent 70-

211, is equipped with a broadcast-'
ing unit and mike.
Clear-Channel Station
After much switching around,
they've picked out a "clear-chan-
ne" frequency of 550--"at the
bottom of your dial," as Stone1
coined the phrase. WQMH can be
heard within a 250 foot radius
of the dorm, they report. The sta-
tion's broadcasting apparatus was
a Christmas present from Stone's,
father, who's an amateur "ham"
in Detroit.
Disc-Jockeys
Already the broadcasters have
been doing some classical and jazz
disc-jockeying-"no long-winded
commercials between records,1
either." West Quad news programs'
and other live broadcasts are in4
the offing come next semester,
when they plan to broadcast frome
6:45 to 8 p.m. every night. I
The trio went on the air for
the first time Saturday night with,
the bare announcement, "This is,
WQMH, Michigan House." Within
half an hour a score of music en-
thusiasts had found the room and
were piling up record requests.
"We've already got a supply of
records big enough to keep us in
the platter-spinning business for
six months," Remley said.
Down the Hall
Many West-Quadders at first
thought they were hearing a com-
mercial station. One unsuspecting
lad got the thrill of his life at'
hearing a record dedicated to him
-until his elation was shattered
by the discovery that the broad-
cast came just a few rooms down
from his own.
Censorship troubles are already
plaguing the broadcasters. "Some-
one broke a bottle of coke on the
first broadcast and we barely got
the mike switched before the cuss
word came out," Stone remarked.'

putees. "No matter what the Rus-
sian press says, they, as university
students, are fed up with war,"
Mr. Bryan said.
He found the students very curi-
ous about the United States and
eager to visit this country. "There
was a very positive friendly feel-
ing toward American people, more
pronounced than in any other
country."
Concerning the future of the
two nations, Mr. Bryan said an in-
telligent public opinion is needed
in this country to prevent a war
with Russia. He did not think the
press in either country was doing
its part to promote this public
opinion. "The Russian people
doubt their press as we doubt
ours."
He stated that both the Russian
people and the Russian govern-
ment are frightened over the
atomic bomb.
"Everyone in Europe looks to
the United States with great
hope," he said.
