Daily Ad Brings Flood
Of Feminine Phone Calls
It all began when one of Sam's friends moaned once too often
about the scarcity of available women in Ann Arbor.
Although Sam is a teaching fellow in the history department and
a staff assistant at West Quad, he just couldn't resist that old under-
grad trick, the phony letter. His roommate, who lives in Detroit, had
met a lovely but somewhat aloof young lady from that city. It was
her name the two schemers signed to the warm note sent to the moan-
ing friend.

U' Announces
-Medical Plan
Proposal To Relieve
hliortage of Doctors
Intensified training of general
practicioners will begin this July
as part of a new postgraduate ed-
ucational plan, University medical
school authorities announced yes-
Under the new training pro-
gram, designed to end the scarcity
of doctors 'in small towns and
rurgl areas of Michigan, interns
will train for two years in Uni-
versiy Hospital, medical school,
and ip various affiliated hospitals
throughout the area.
The first two affiliated hos-
pitals will be James Decker Mun-
son in Traverse City and Beyer
Memorial in Ypsilanti, each of
which will train four doctors year-
ly after the two-year program
gets under way.
Interns will spend the first six
months at University Hospital
studying specialized subjects, a
year in the medical and surgical
departments of the affiliated hos-
pitals, and then return to Uni-
verity Hospital for their final six
months of instruction.
The wider background of med-
ical experience provided should
encourage more physicians to turn
to the field of general practice,
Dean Albert C. Furstenberg of the
medical school indicated.

work out exactly as planned, how-
ever, because the friend succeeded1
in making a date wtih the appar-
ently not-so-aloof-after-all young,
lady. In the course of his corre-
spondence with her, he also dis-
covered the hoax.
"I'll get even with you!" was his
dire threat to Sam.
And he did,
Tuesday morning an ad ap-
peared in the Classified Column of
The Daily. It read something like
"Interested in meeting young,:
attractive, unattached young
woman who is interested in history
(preferably modern near-east).
Call Sam." Then followed Sam's
address and phone number. -
Sam Puzzled
Until Sam finally saw the paper
in the afternoon, he was very puz-
zled by the number of people who
asked him if he was "that desper-
In one hour he received six
phone calls from various young
women who thought they fit the
qualifications. Some of the girls
thought the ad was legitimate, but
most of them were just "going
along with a gag."
Frigid Pedagog
One considerate young man
called to arrange a date for his
sister, who, he claimed, is a junior
at the University of Chicago. He
said that she is the pedagogical
type, but that she needs "unloos-
ening." He suggested that Sam
abandon the history line and do a
"defrosting job" on his sister.
All in all Sam sums it up as an
interesting experience. And he has
acquired several new phone num-
bers that he says will be looked
into shortly.
It pays to advertise in The
Daily !

Revelli Seeks Man To Share
In New-Found Jazz Concerto
Man wit liout music is pretty low in the evolutionary scale - -
thropologists tell us, but music without man can cause its share of the
blues too.
Prof. William D. Revelli, conductor of the University Bands, has
the "blues" but not the man to play them. He is proud possessor of a
musical manuscript, "Concerto in Jazz," a new work which he hopes
to preview before an American audience.
Uncovered in England

The concerto was discovered in England by an
publisher, Jack Mills. When Mills

American music

heard it performed by the London
Philharmonic, he said to himself,
"This is even more American than
American music. He obtained the
publishing rights from its English
composer, Donald Philips, and
brought it to America where Philip
Lang, noted arranger has arranged
it for band.
The composition employs up-to-
the-minute rhythms with move-
ments of boogie, swing, and shades
of "St. Louis Blues."
Unveil in May
Prof. Revelli plans to introduce
the number in a May concert here
as a piano solo with band accom-
If you are an advanced pianist,
with considerable experience in
music of the modern idiom and in-
terested in introducing a contem-
porary work, Prof. Revelli invites
you to drop in at Harris Hall or

Records of graduates of the
University's Institute of Public
Administration have proved be-
yond a doubt that all levels of
government can benefit from the
use of administrators trained in
the principles of management.
The Institute of Public Admin-
istration, a part of the Graduate
School, has effectively combined
academic study with practical in-
ternship in government work to
serve as a springboard for careers
in federal, state and local gov-
Close relationship with agencies
such as the Michigan Municipal
Leaguesand the State Revenue De-
partment has given students in
the Institute an opportunity to
gain invaluable experience under
actual working conditions.

The first graduate to receive his
Masters Degree in Public Admin-
istration under the new program
was John Huss, '37, who currently
holds the position of director of
the Michigan Municipal League.
Among recent graduates who
have already stepped into impor-
tant administrative positions are
James Magdanz and Homer Skar-
in of the February class. Magdanz,
who served his internship as as-
sistant to the director of the
Michigan Municipal League, has
been appointed administrative aid
to Governor Sigler.
Skarin is in Washington, D.C.
as a special assistant on the re-
search staff of the House Military
Subcommittee of the Appropria-
tions Committee.

If you don't find a book you want in the library, ask for it!
Suggestions from students and faculty are of great aid in select-

books in the General Library.
Although the library directors do not feel obliged to buy every
best-seller published, they try to choose current novels of distinction
for a varied book list, Prof. Warner G. Rice, library director, asserted.

Another herculean task dis-

The recent steel price boost is
"an exhibition of poor economic
statesmanship and timing," Prof.
William B. Palmer, of the econom-
ics department, said yesterday.
Contrary to popular opinion, the
price rise affects only steel ingots
sold by large steel producers to in-
dependent firms for rolling and
finishing, or less than 10 per cent
of total ingot production, Prof.
Palmer asserted.
He added that 80 to 90 per cent

cause it will be interpreted by la-
bor as a signal for greater wage
demands than presently planned,
which could result in a renewal
of the inflationary spiral because
of the key position of steel in the
national economy.
