Nation-wide Box Office Slump
Misses Local Movie Theatres
By DON DORRAN'C .
Tlhe much-discussed box-office
slump hasn't hit the Ann Arbor
movie-houses, according to the
managers of the two Campus thea-
jBoth managers, Gerald Haag of
the Michigan Theatre and Larry
Mull of the State, agreed that
business in Ann Arbor is too much
on an up-and-down basis for na-
tional averages to show. The gen-
eral concensus is that since prices
here are low to start with and be-
ing a university town, with little
manufacturing, special conditions
The national slump, according
to Mr. Haog, is probably the result
of weather vagaries as much as
any other factor. He pointed out
that this spring has been unusual
in many respects, and bad weather
always means bad box-office re-
The major problem in Ann Ar-
bor, both said, was getting enough
class A pictures. With a limited
population, they pointed out, two
movie-houses are enough to take
care of the demand. However, the
limited population also means that
in order to provide a varied pro-
gram only exceptional motion pic-
tures can be held for a week. As
a. result, they have trouble getting
enough top-ranking pictures.
Both managers stated that they
were willing to buy anything that,
was any good at all. The only ex-
ceptions were certain pictures such
as henry V and other pictures
with a limited appeal. Both houses,
it was pointed out, have shown
several English pictures, and with
a few exceptions, these did not
draw as well as the average Hol-
The reactions to various pic-
tures fascinates the two managers.
Several pictures, notalbly Good
News, didn't do as well as expect-
ed, while others, such as The Jol-
son Story, did much better than
Dissatisfied with Reviews
Both managers were dissatisfied
with the reviewing facilities in
Ann Arbor. They complained that
the average review was trying
more for wise-cracks than an hon-
Business on football afternoons
is usually normal 75% of the time.
Concerts and other University ac-
tivities doesn't bother business if
there is a good picture showing.
The manager of the State Theatre,
Mr. Mull, said that the audience
here was intelligent and would
come to see good pictures. He re-
peated that the major difficulty
was the pictures.
Both managers said that they
liked movies personally, and saw
'them whenever possible.

500 per cent, will produce 400

Lt. Vincent Fox of the I. D. Bu-
reau said that the only comparable
equipment is that used by large
photographic companies. Even
these are not fullly automatic, and
cost up to $220,000, as compared
with Newton's machine, which will
sell for about $8,000 when it goes
into production sometime next

By GEORGE WALKER
Behind every Union dance or
coffee hour, behind each of the
many Union-sponsored activities,
back of every cup of coffee sold in
the Union cafeteria is an immense
and complex organization.
When the men who ran the Un-
ion back in 1917 voluntarily hand-
ed over to the University the deed
to the newly-acquired property,
thus placing their organization
under the control of the Board of
Regents, they set up the many of-
fices and governing boards which
now plan Union activities and de-
termine its policies. And the Un-
ion has just about every conceiva-
ble species of board, office, and
High men on the organizational
totem pole are the nine students
and nine non-students who com-
prise the Board of Directors. This
year the student members are
Gene Sikorovsky, President of the
Union; Al Farnsworth, secretary;
Paul Harrison, ex officio as Chair-
man of Men's Judiciary Council.
and five vice-presidents elected
from the various schools. These
are Tom Walsh, of the literary
college, Howard DeMallie of the
engineering college; Ross Hume,
Medical School; Bill MacRitchie,
Law School; Robert Laidlaw, Den-
tal School, and Chester Kerner,
who represents the combined
The nine remaining members
represent alumni, faculty, admin-
istration, and the Board of Re-
gents. They are: Erich A. Walter,
ex officio member as Director of
the Office of Student Affairs; Re-
gent Otto Eckert; T. Hawley Tap-
ping, ex officio Alumni Secretary;
Joseph Bursley and John Huss,
alumni; Chester O. Wisler, Finan-
cial Secretary; Carl Brandt, Rob-
ert G. Rodkey, and A. L. Clark,
In answer to the many questions
posed by students concerning Un-
ion profits, the Board of Directors
has issued a financial statement.
Of the $1,252,574 gross income
from sales and services for the last
fiscal year, more than $446,178 was
paid out in wages to 327 student
and 154 non-student employes. In
addition, food cost $459,480, and
$26,011 was paid out for sales
and excise tax.
When the Union was completed
in 1920. architects estimated its
life expectancy at 75 years. This

and suggestions from Union
members concerning service and
means that in 1995, students will
still be taking advantage of its
many facilities. But by that time,
the property will have deteriorated
to the extent that one and a half
million dollars will be needed to
replace the present structure.
Whittling down a six figure
mortgage is a slow but steady
process. However, as of July 1,
1947, amortization of the Union
building was cut to $289,000.
Architects are now working on
preliminary plans for an addi-
tion to the Union. This construc-
tion, to be financed by a new bond
issue, is planned to revamp the
cafeteria and kitchen facilities,
constructed in 1917 and outdated
for at least the past ten years. The
size of the ballroom is to be con-
siderably increased. Music ap-
preciation rooms, more meeting
rooms, and additional space for
the student offices and their ac-
tivities will occupy the second and
third floors of the new wing.
There will be additional lobby,j
kitchen, and dining room space on
the first floor, and additional
lodgings on the fourth floor.
With present high building
costs, final plans for this addition
have not as yet been drawn.

were struck by the rifle butts and

drive them along.
"But," he said, "to te" of
my knowledge, only one shot was
fired, and although I havemade
every effort to trace down the ru-
mors that students were killed, I
have not been able to discover that
more than one boy was shot, his
injury received in the foot."
Smith described the parade as
one to inform the President that
the students of Prague wanted a
retention of the Parliamentary
form of government and that they
wanted information concerning
students who had been arrested
and the charges against them.
Originally it was reported that
"all reactionary elements who do
not have a positive attitude toward
the new government" would be
expelled from the universities and
high schools by the action commit-
tees, Smith said. This was later
amended, he reported, to permit
the same expulsions under the
provisions of a scarcely enforced
law of 1945, "which set forth that
former collaborators would be
barred from the universities."
Smith said that this rule has
been made to apply to any opposi-
tion to the new regime.

Inactive in War
The Druids, founded on this
campus in 1910, were inactive dur-
ing the war. The society was re-
organized last December with
Warren Bovee as president, and
Peter Ostafin, of the sociology de-
partment, as adviser.
Because of the number of ac-
tivities represented in its member-
ship, the Druids serve as a sound-
ing board for student opinion.
New ideas are discussed and then
carried back to the different or-
Before the war, the Druids
worked for freshman week and
kept up interest in college tradi-
tion and ritual. In addition, the
society sponsored lectures on an-
tional and political topics. Among
its many distinguished alumni is
Supreme Court Justice Frank
Murphy, former governor of Mich-
Fresh Air Camp
This year the Druids plan to
aid the Fresh Air Camp at Pat-
terson Lake. Also on the agenda
is a stag weekend to be held some-
time in the spring.
Tapping takes place yearly in
May. Some of the ritual connected
with initiation is held at Druids
Rock in front of Angell Hall. Each
initiate is given the name of a
tree, and the day before initiation
is marked on the forehead.
Soon to be seen on campus are
IDruid hats, which will be worn
by members. They will be the sen-
sation of the campus, according
to Bovee. The society's emblem is
a snake and sickle.
