BEHIND THE 8-BALL:
Ex-World Billiard Champion
Will Present Exhibition Here

By GEORGE WALKER
Most people have trouble sink-
ing one billiard ball, but with one
stroke, Jimmy Caras, former
world's pocket billiard champion,
can pocket fifteen.
Caras, who won the world's
pocket billiard titles in 1936 and
1938, will appear in three exhibi-
tions tomorrow in the Union: the
first at 12:30 p.m. in the Univer-
sity Club; from 3-5 p.m. in the
Billiard Room; and again at 8
p.m. in the Billiard Room.
Trick Shots
Union officials claim Caras is
probably the best of the world's
pocket trick shot players. Besides
his ability to sink fifteen balls
with one stroke, he can make
shots utilizing two cues, rapid fire
shots, and time shots with "amaz-
ing accuracy."
In a match game in 1946, Caras.
scored 127 consecutive points in
one inning, which tied the record
for that particular variation of the
game. In the same match he

Caras, whose trip to Michigan
is sponsored by the Association of
:'ollege Unions and the Billiard
Association of America, has played
competitive billiards since he was
17. Last spring he was head ref-

Besides demonstrating the fun-

sible, Union officials said.

Ann Arbor and Detroit will
probably be operating on different.
time schedules stating Aptil 25.
The ordinance which keeps Ann
Arbor on Eastern Standard Time
is being amended, but the time
change cannot go into effect un-
til May 3, Mayor William E.
Brown said yesterday. Detroit will
shift to daylight savings time on
April 25.
One Vote Margin
At the last city council meeting,
a resolution to keep Ann Arbor on
E.S.T. in spite of the Detroit shift
was defeated by a narrow one vote
margin.
Mayor Brown said that he and
most people in the city favored
the time change and that op-
ponents of the measure were only
objecting to following Detroit's
lead. He noted that Ann Arbor is
tied to Detroit commercially.
"Nothing but confusion would
result in train, bus and airline
schedules and among business
men," Mayor Brown said. "There
is no point in cutting off your
nose to spite your face."
Farmers Are Opposed
City Attorney William M. Laird
said that the Council could speed
action on the time change resolu-
tion by calling a special meeting
sometime after the next scheduled
meeting next Monday. He termed
this action doubtful since Council
president Creal is out of town and
the council was not enthusiastic
over the time change.
Chamber of Commerce officials
sent a letter to the council saying
that the retail merchant and the

manufacturing divisions were in
favor of changing the time to con-
form with Detroit. Officials re-
ported that groups which traded
with farmers were opposed to the
time change.
Heavy Dew
Arthur G. Beden, local business
man, said that farmers would lose
a half day's work if the time
change went into effect. Dew
would prevent the farmer from
working until around 11 a.m. Be-
den said.
He added that Ann Arbor is es-
sentially a farmer's town and its
time should be geared to that of
the farm community.
University authorities said that
they did not contemplate any ac-
tion on time change at present.

A fifteen minute talk on the
hunger of European children, by
George Burke, local attorney,
brought action in two minutes
from the Washtenaw County
Board of Supervisors, yesterday.
The Board unanimously passed
a resolution commending and
supporting the UN Appeal for
Children afterBurke, who served
as a War Crimes Tribunal Judge
in Nuremberg, Germany, told of
children from six to ten years old
poking into garbage cans outside
a DP camp in Germany, hoping
to find scraps of food.
The supervisors regretted that
they did not have the constitu-
tional power to devote funds to
the local drive.
"500,000 European children un-
der 15 years of age now have T.B.
"Disease and hunger go hand in
hand," Burke said. "Regardless of
what led up to the war and its
devastation, the children who suf-
fer now were not to blame."
The goal for the UN Appeal in
the United States has been set at
$60 million. Congress has voted
an added $90 million for the ef-
fort which is being carried
through in 46 nations.
