By BOB LENSKI and
BOB DILWORTH
Still more of a pamipas than a
campus, Willow Run has at least
one bright spot for the married
students living there-the Uni-
versity Community Center.
An oasis of activity for wives
who are sweating out their hus-
bands' terms at the drab expanse
of Willow Run, the Community
Center offers social life, fun and
education.
Something Doing Every Night
Almost any night in the week,
lights go on at 8 p.m. like beacons
to guide the wives through the
village smog to some activity in-
side.
Leaving their hubbies at home

to their studies, kids, and pets, the
spouses gather to play bridge,
hear lectures, sew, make things,
or just swap gossip and get ac-
quainted with their many neigh-
bors.
Established Two Years Ago
The Community Center was
opened almost two years ago by
the University as a part of the
program for veterans. It has since
become the/haven for many en-
thusiastic groups. The building
and furnishings, located just off
Midway Boulevard within earshot
of the bowling alley, is provided
by the F.P.H.A.
The steadily turning wheels of
activity are kept running smooth-
ly through the efforts of social

director Anna R. Harris and her
assistant, Mrs. Carolyn Leithaus-
er. Both are employed full-time
by the University.
Theory Behind the Center
"The Community Center helps
to break up a vicious circle," ex-
plains Miss Harris. "A discontent-
ed wife makes for an unhappy
home, an unhappy home makes
for an unhappy husband-and
an unhappy husband is liable to
be a poor student. We don't want
that," she said.
All activities start late enough
so that wives have had a chance
to feed their husbands, wash
dishes, and put their children in
bed. They are then ready for a
"night out with the girls."
Lawyers Hold
Founders Day
The University Lawyers' Club
will hold its annual Founder's
Day dinner at 6 p.m. today in the
Lawyers' Club with Howard L.
Barkdull of Cleveland as speaker.
Barkdull, who will speak on
"World Peace and the Lawyer" is
a graduate of the University and
also holder of an honorary degree
of master of laws. He is a trustee
of the University Alumni Fund
and past president of the Union.
A member of the bar in both
Michigan and Ohio, Barkdull is ac-
tive in the American Bar Associ-
ation and has been vice president
of the National Conference of
Commissioners on Uniform State
Laws since 1943.

British Offer
Summer Jobs
American students will be able
to work in England, on farms near
London, this summer under a pro-
gram sponsored by the National
Students Association in co-opera-
tion with the British National Un-
ion of Students.
The program will include one
hundred American students, men
and women, and will be divided
into two one-month periods. The
first group of fifty will work from
June 19 to July 17, and the sec-
ond group from July 17 to Aug.
14.

Three new exhibits are on dis-
play until April 25 at the Uni-
versity of Michigan Museum of
Archaeology.
The early American coins ex-
hibit includes Pine Tree Shillings
from the Boston mint of 1652, the
first coins minted by the colonies
samples used by other colonies
and examples of the first coins
issued by the United States, as
well as tokens used in the Panic
of 1837 and the Civil War tokens
of 1863.
American rifles and pistols used
in every major war involving the
United States from the Revolu-
tion to World War I comprise the

second exhibit. Nno-military rifles
and pistols which have had in-
fluence on the nation's history
also will be displayed.
A third display consists of 19
pictorial maps of Italy showing
landmarks left by Italy's long and
colorful history and by modern
industries and activities. Photo-
graphs, coins and pottery from
the Museum's collection will sup-
plement the maps._
The modern word "cannibal"
comes from the name of a West
Indian tribe, the Caribs, according
to the World Book Encyclopedia.
