SUB-CIVILIZATION:
University Underground Has
Labyrinths, Mystery,_Kilroy

By KEN LOWE
Bent on viewing the changes in
the underground aspects of the
campus, The Daily recently made
a tour of the network of tunnels
that services nearly every building
on the grounds.
The party entered the tunnels
at a point below the Plant Service
Building and proceeded westward.
The tunnels-approximately four
and one-half miles of them-were
found to be fully equipped with
electric lights and so thoroughly
heated that temperatures of up-
wards of 130 degrees were encoun-
tered immediately.

Radio Depicts
A Dean's Day
Interviews Slated
For Walter's Office
A busy afternoon in the life of
Dean of Students Erich A. Walter
will be broadcast at 2:30 p.m. to-
day over WKAR, as one of the
Broadcasting Service's series, "On
Campus Doorsteps."
Dean Barnard, who's sponsor-
ing student wired radio, Norris
Domangue, of the Independent
Men's Association, Irma Eichhorn
of Assembly, Jean Gringle, who
heads the Student Legislature's
charity drives committee, James
McCobb and Henry L. Meyer, both
of the Inter-fraternity Council,
will be interviewed.
E. G. Burrows, program direc-
tor of Broadcasting Service, will
take Broadcasting Service micro-
phones in Dean Walter's office for
the unrehearsed "closeup."

are created by large steam pipes
which line the tunnels. Steam
flows through the pipes at an ex-
tremely high velocity, requiring
only a fraction of a second to pass
from the power plant to the most
remote building serviced, a dis-
tance of about one mile.
In addition to steam pipes, the
tunnels route water pipes and wir-,
ing for telephones and electric
clocks throughout the campus.
Workers Discovered
A little further on a handful of
workers was discovered installing
a new water line to the laundry.
They were fully clad in heavy
work clothes, apparently immune
to the ultra-tropical heat.
Under the areaway of the
Chemistry Addition a new tunnel
had been routed. In order to in-
crease capacity and service new
buildings, section routes have been
altered in this area and piping has
been increased in the north cam-
pus vicinity between the substa-
tion and the General Service
Building. A spur has been extend-
ed to the Business Administration
Building.
Kilroy Was Here
From time to time other work-
ers were seen and various signs of
civilization were noticed. One such
reassuring sign was a row of boxes
bearing the universal announce-
ment of Kilroy's presence.
The party next passed a point
under Angell Hall which, it is said,
was the scene of a murder in a
mystery story by Kenneth Millar,
former member of the English fac-
ulty.
State and Maynard Streets
passed overhead, bringing the par-
ty to the Student Publications
Building where, somewhat relieved,
it emerged from the subterranean
labyrinth.

Local Chapter
Backs Nationat
ADA Platform,
ADA's campus chapter, voted
full support yesterday to the pro-
gram mapped out by the group's
parent body at its first national
convention in Philadelphia last
weekend.
More than 600 delegates to the
national meeting had supported
the Marshall Plan, the President's
Civil Rights program, UN enforce-
ment of the Palestine decision and
an "effective program to fight in-
flation."
The ADA condemned the Third
Party as a "campaign to defeat
the Marshall Plan . . one which
would serve only to elect an isola-
tionist and reactionary Congress."
The national meeting voted oppo-
sition to Universal Military Train-
ing, called for the abolition of the
House Un - American Activities
Committee, and attacked measures
to outlaw the Communist Party or
any party.
Bernard Goodman, chairman of
the local chapter, said that the
Philadelphia convention, in gain-
ing the support of major labor
leaders, has taken a long step "in
healing the breach in labor and
liberal ranks, which has existed
since the AFL-CIO split of 1935."
(The ADA program had been
endorsed by AFL President Wil-
liam Green, CIO President Philip
Murray, UAW President Walter
Reuther and A. F. Whitney, Presi-
dent of the Railroad Brother-
hoods.)
'U' Dele Crates

Arlynn Rosen, '49, and Sue Sir-
is, '50, members of the NSA Com-
mittee of the Student Legislature,
will represent the University this
weekend at a Midwest Intercol-
legiate Conference on the United
Nations.
The conference, meeting Feb.
27-29 at the International Rela-
tions Center in Chicago, will be
sponsored by the Collegiate Con-
ference for the United Nations.
This is the college affiliate of the
American Association for the Uni-
ted Nations.
Engineers Will
Hold Smoker
As a part of the new program
to stimulate interest and activity
among the students in the College
of Engineering, a Sophomore En-.
gineering Smoker will be held at
7:15 p.m. today at the Union.
The program will include an in-
formal discussion about basket-
ball conducted by Pete Elliott, Bob'
Harrison, Boyd McCaslin, Don
McIntosh, and Mack Suprunowicz,
members of the first-string bas-
ketball team. Refreshments and
smokes will be provided.

O uman Nature
Affects Laws
Says Shartel
The infinite possibilities of hu-
man behavior make it impossible
to make laws so complete and so
certain as to be good in all cases
and at all times, Prof. Burke Shar-
tel, Cooley Law Lecturer said yes-'
terday.
The legal system can consist of
only general statements which
must be interpreted and adapted
to conform with changing condi-
tions, he maintained.
He spoke of the efforts made
during the early part of the 19th
century to codify the law to a
point where every case or situation
would be provided for in advance.
}Their efforts were not successful,
he said.
It is impossible to provide a rul-
ing for every action, Prof. Shartel
declared. In this manner we fall
short of the ideal, as we do with
other legal objectives.
Prof. Shartel spoke also of the
need for the revision of the law to
meet changing needs of our times.
This he offered as a more practi-
cal alternative to complete and
final codification of the law.
The fifth and final lecture in
this series "Interpretation of
Standards" will be given by Prof.
Shartel at 4:15 p.m. today, in Rm.
150, Hutchins Hall.

By GEORGE AUSTIN
What shall we do for gasoline
when present sources run dry?
Latest answer to this critical
question comes from Standard Oil
researchers, who have developed
a method of extracting gasoline
from natural gas, oil, and shale.
Principal new feature of the
process is the use of an iron oxide
catalyst. The catalyst, which
speeds the reaction while remain-
ing itself unchanged, has both
solid and liquid properties.
The "solid liquid" is described
as looking "like a fine white sand.
When air is blown through it, it
behaves almost exactly like a liq-

uid. Toy ships toss and sail on
its surface and it flows like water."
Cost per gallon with the new
process under today's conditions
is estimated at 16 cents, an in-
crease of 5 cents over the present
price.
Drawbacks to previous "syn-
thetic" processes have been low
grade product and high cost. Ger-
man wartime gasoline made from
coal and natural gas, had these
disadvantages.

There's a good reason why
WESTERN ELECTRK is in this
family circle
Western Electric is a member of the Bell System
family circle for exactly the same reason that your
local Bell Telephone company is a member-to assure
the close teamwork that is essential for efficient, eco-
nomical, nation-wide telephone service for you.
As the supply membcr of the family, Western
Electric makes telephone equipment, buys all kinds
of supplies, keeps- these things in stock at 29 distrib-
uting houses for delivery to the telephone companies,
and installs central office equipment.
This unified service of supply results in many
economics to the Bell 'Telephone companies and, in
turn, to you who use the telephone.
Since 1882, Western Electric has i)ecn a member of
the Bell Telephone family-helping to make your
service the worl's best at the lowest possible cost.
