City's Record Clean as U.S.
Fire Prevention Week Opens

Uiversity students and Ann
Arbor residents may pride them-
selves on the fact that no lives
have been lost here through fire
in the past year, Fire Chief Ben
Zahn said yesterday, commenting
on national Fire Prevention Week,
which begins today.
But throughout the nation, he
continued, statistics reveal that
30 persons are burned to death
per day, and $1,387 damage is
done per minute by fire. Nine out
of ten of all fires can be pre-
vented, he added.
During Fire Prevention Week,
which was proclaimed by Presi-
dent Truman, every person can
acquire habits which will help
prevent fires, Zahn explained.
Students can help eliminate the
worst fire hazard-careless use of
cigarettes and matches, he con-I
tinued. "Crowded traffic and
parking conditions, hindrances to'

firemen speeding to fires, can be
lessened if drivers, including stu-
dents, keep out of the way."
Zahn declared that crowded liv-
ing conditions may be obviated as
a source of fire danger if students
and residents of Ann Arbor ob-
serve the following injunctions:
Don't smoke in bed;
Don't use explosive cleaning
Make sure heating plants are
regularly cleaned;
Avoid allowing old papers and
rags to accumulate in closets or
Don't use defective electrical
appliances or faulty wiring sys-
Emphasizing the fact that fires
can be prevented, Zahn added
that fire losses this year will total
25 per cent higher than in 1946.

The Union will continue its tra-
ditional policy of sponsoring a
series of faculty-student coffee
hours this semester, according to
a Union spokesman.
The initial coffee hour of the
semester will be held from 4 to 5
p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 15 in the
Terrace Room of the Union. Sim-
ilar faculty-student coffee hours
will be given every Wednesday
In the past, these occasions
have afforded students an excel-
lent opportunity to become better
acquainted with members of the
faculty. Each week a different
faculty department will be pres-
ent as guest of honor.
The first department to be hon-
ored will be announced later.
Bob Olshefsky, chairman of the
Union's campus affairs committee
will supervise preparations for
these coffee hours.
As in the past, the Union will
also conduct a tutorial service this
semester. In this regard, the Union
will merely act as a clearing house
to bring together students and

who are interested in taking ad-
vantage of this service should call
at the Union student offices from
3 to 5 p.m. any afternoon.
Persons desiring to act as tu-
tors must have an "A" in the
subject to be taught or a "B" if
