GRADS DITCH ROOKS:
Great Outdoors Found

To Be Antid
By JIM JACKOWS$I
Comes a time when even grad
students leave their books on the
shelf.
Every Sunday afternoon an in-
formal group of student "intel-
lectuals" put aside their yearning
for learning and set out to have
fun in the great outdoors. This
group, composed mostly of grad
students with a couple of faculty
members and visiting Boy Scouts
thrown in, calls itself the Grad-
uate Outing Club and sums up
its purpose as "having a good
time."
Weather and Season
Depending on the weather and
Call Last Tune
For Dancers
Under GI Bill
LANSING, May 6-(IP)-Veter-
ans will no longer be able to take
dancing instructions at govern-
ment expense in Michigan.
A spokesman for the State De-
partment of Public Instgruction
said today Superintendent Eu-
gene B. Elliott had ordered eight
Michigan dancing schools to dis-
continue their courses under the
GI Bill of Rights,
Dr. Elliott was reported to have
taken the action with the ap-
proval of the four major veterans'
organizations.
The spokesman for Dr. Elliott
said the dancing instruction had
been permitted under GI bill pay-
ments on the theory that it was an
occupational training program.
The' program, the spokesman said,
has developed into purely ball-
room dancing instruction for so-
cial purposes.

te for Study
the season. club activities take i
hikes, picnics, ski trips, swim-
ming, tobogganing, canoeing and
"almost everything else under the
sun." Members turn out in num-
bers ranging from 10 in the win-
ter to 70 in the spring and let
their inclinations dictate the
day's pursuit.
Members claim the distinguish-
ing characteristics of a "Grad
Outer" is that "he doesn't know
enough to come in out of the
rain." To illustrate this, they
point to last Sunday's canoe trip
which found fifteen members
paddling up the Huron River in
the rain.
On the return part of this ex-
pedition three of the members,
Clark Harper, Rosemary Fowle
and Bob Cohen, tipped over their
canoe and took an unscheduled
swim in the Huron for good
measure.
Cruises
"Outers" have their own unique
alibis for such occurrences,
though. In this case, Miss Fowle,
one of the capsized canoeists, de-
nied that the catastrophe was the
result of an argument she had
started over Shakespeare's "An-
thony and Cleopatra," and added.
"Anyway, I think the University
should offer a course in canoe-
paddling."
At the end of a day's sport,
members cook up a dinner in a
room reserved for their use in
the Rackham Building and follow
it with an evening song-fest. In
the summer months and when
weather permits, they eat their
meals outdoors.
Besides their regular Sunday
outings, club members also spon-
sor a class in square-dancing every
second Wednesday night in the
lounge of the Women's Athletic
Building. These classes are open
to anyone interested ad, under
the direction of caller Scott Col-
burn, have proved a great success.
Officers
Present officers of the Grad-
uate Outing Club are Horace Da-
vidon, president; Hugh Gundel,
vice-president; Ellen Crowley,
secretary; and David Wend,
treasurer.
Decidedly informal in their
make-up and traditions-typical
"Outer" tradition: "Don't use
gates; . always climb fences"-
members of the club believe that
in their Sunday outings they have
found the perfect antidote to a
week of gruelling study.
VA To Survey
Neglected Vets
Hungry veterans who have not
received subsistence checks during
the current enrollment will have
an opportunity to report their
plight to a Veterans Administra-
tion subsistence survey.
Reports will be taken between
8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday in
Rm. 100A of the Rackham Build-
ing. The office will not close dur-
ing the lunch hour.
Veterans having questions con-
cerning the amounts of their
checks can expect to receive an
adjustment in the near future,
according to VA officials.

Eisler Wants
To Pay Debt'
To Ann Arbor
Letter Expresses
Desire To Return
"I still owe Ann Arbor a lecture;
I shall pay this debt whenever it
will be."
Gerhart Eisler, German Com-
munist, included this statement in
a letter (written during his im-
prisonment on Ellis Island) to
Lee Marsh, intercollegiate direc-
tor of AYD. The letter was a
query as to whether or, not the
"meeting-preventing Dean of the
University of Michigan would re-
vise his attitude and give the stu-
dents the opportunity to listen to
me as well as give me a chance to
tell my side of the story."
The letter appeared in the April
edition of The New Student AYD
publication put out on the Har-
vard University campus, and was
accompanied by editorial notes
explaining that the letter is re-
printed in order that Eisler may
''speak for himself.''
Beside the comment that "snow
and ice-ball throwing, in itself
a very nice and likable sport and
generally healthy for all con-
cerned, cannot be a substitute for
articulate thought," Eisler at-
tacked the American press as a
whole with:
"If you (young progressive
Americans) want information,
facts, the truth in news, you must
get it in spite of your newspapers,
radios and sources of the makers
of public opinion. . . . Difficulties
will make you hard ... against the
enemies of the people and against
manufactured prejudices."

SIGN OF THE TIMES:
Local Sign painters Sometimes
Slip Up in Their P's' and Q's'

Ann Arborites are a very critical
crowd.
Local sign contractor Art Gil-
lespie claims that the town has
highly discriminating taste in
signs, with the University ranking
among the most particular cus-
tomers. However, Gillespie re-
ports, glaring errors do get by.
One sign he painted stood in
front of a local church for three
years, telling people to come to
church on "Sundy." No one no-
ticed the mistake until the sign
was brought back to Gillespie for
repainting.
Repainting
Repainting also brought to
light a similar error on the sign
of a State Street church which
announced services on "holli-
days."
John Botchen, another local
painter, claims that make-shift
work is impossible on the Ann
Arbor sign market. "It's not like
other towns. The jobs are on a
smaller scale, and the names we
print are usually familiar to us."
How Do You Spell It?
Sometimes the customers aren't
familiar with the names, though.
Gillespie recalled a sign he did
for a restaurant-owner who has
been in business for twenty years.
Gillespie had just finished the

Political ...

(Continued from Page 1)

work and brought the owner out-
side to look at it.
The customer stood aghast,
saying, "Why, you don't spell it
r-e-s-t-a-u-r-a-n-t!" Gillespie
had to haul out a dictionary be-
fore the man okayed the sign."
"When a painter makes a mis-
take, it's usually because.his mind
is on other things," Gillespie said.
"I spelled 'Washington' without
the 't' last week, and it was two
days before I saw what I'd done
even though I've known how to
spell it since I was a kid."
Rewriting
Painters say that half their
time on a job is spent rewriting
sign layouts the customer has
given them. Some patrons even let
the painter have free reign as
to what goes on the sign.
"It's a lot easier to watch what
you're doing the first time than
to fix up a mistake after it's
made," one painter said. "When a
word does get misspelled, it's of-
ten because the painter has a
liquid other than paint on the
job with him."
Old Army Carl)
Asked by IZFA
GI garments are being called
back to active duty this week by
the International Zionist Federa-
tion of America.
IZFA is asking contributions of
old battle garb to equip the Ha-
gana army in Palestine. Khakis,
fatigues and other serviceable ap-
parel was requested by Eddie Yel-
lin, drive chairman. Clothes may
be left at Hillel Foundation or a
call to 2-6585 will bring pickup
service, he said.
Contest Representative
Debora Rabinowitz '49 lit. will
represent the University in the
annual contest of the Northern
Oratorical League today in Madi-
son, Wis.

Another Michigan "first" will'
go on the records at 4 p.m., MayK
16 when the first production oft
an original television show from{
a college campus is given by the
University speech department{
over WWJ-TV.
The script "Mr. Plummerton
Finds the Truth," by Bob Hauke
is one of two chosen in a contest1
for original television drama
sponsored by the speech depart-
ment. The other "Blood on thea
Land," by Pat Merrit and Vance
Simonds will be produced later
in the term.
First Step
These programs are the first
step in plans for teaching tele-
vision writing, acting and direct-
ing at the University, according
to Dr. Hugh Norton, of the speech
department.
Eventually a regular series of
campus televised shows will serve
as a laboratory for students in the
same way that radio broadcasts
are produced by radio classes.
Some of the problems which
will be met by students working
in this new medium have already
been faced by the writers and
actors working on the scheduled
programs.
One of the hardest things for
writers who have worked in radio
to remember is that there must
be action as well as words, ac-
cording to Hauke.
Television Script
He explained that a television
script is divided into audio, what
is heard, and video, what is seen.
Zoologist Will
Lecture Today'
"Post-war Biological Research
in Europe" will be the subject of
a lecture by Jean G. Baer, profes-
sor of zoology at the University of
Neuchatel, Switzerland, at 8 p.m.
today in Kellogg Auditorium.
Prof. Baer, in the United States
to attend the Congress on Tropi-
cal Medicine in Washington next
week, has recently visited Italy
and other European countries.
He will present a first-hand ac-
count of biological research in Eu-
rope since the last world war.
A parasitologist and zoologist of
international reputation, Prof.
Baer is noted for his research on
parasite relations and their value
in studies of the evolutin of
hosts and parasites.
The lecture is sponsored by the
Department of Zoology.
New Officers
Martha Cook Building recently
elected its officers for the coming
year.
Georgiana Benesh was named
president; Ruth Briegel, vice-
president; Ann Mosher, secretary,
Mary Ellen Lavely, treasurer;
Janet Gildersleeve, senior repre-
sentative; and Patricia Reed, jun-
ior representative.

"You are supposed to write both
sides of the script at the same
time but sometimes you forget
and end up with all words and no
action," he said.
Radio actors working in tele-
vision for the first time have the
same trouble according to Dr.
Norton, who is directing "Mr.
Plummerton."
"At the first rehearsals the cast
got expression in their voices but
neglected gestures and facial ex-
pression," he said.
New Law Lifts
Wage Ceilings
For Veterans
A student veteran holding an
outside job can now earn from
$35 to $90 more a month without
having his subsistence reduced,
under a law signed recently by
President Truman.
The new law (a combination of
the so-called Morse and Kearney
Bills) does these things:
1. It raises the monthly ceilings
on wages and subsistence allow-
ance for veterans with no depen-
dents from. $175 to $200; for those
with one dependent $200 to $270;
and for veterans with more than
one dependent from $200 to $290.
(This means that as soon as a
veteran's wages plus his subsist-
ence allowance exceed these
amounts, his allowance will be
cut proportionately.)
2. In computing wages, the law
ignores overtime payments. Only
wages based on the "standard
work week" are counted in estab-
lishing the amount to be paid.
The increased subsistence
checks for those who will benefit
from the new law will be delayed
until July or August, according
to a Veterans Administration of-
ficial as reported by the Asso-
ciated Press.
The enabling legislation just
signed by the President is too
complicated to allow swift adjust-
ment of subsistence checks, he
explained.
Book Drive of
AVC To End
Today is the last day of AVC's
campus drive to collect books for
the library of Ann Arbor's new
Veterans' Readjustment Center.
The committee in charge of the
campaign announced that al-
though a number of books have
been donated during the past two
days, many more are still needed
to assure the Center an adequate-
ly-stocked library.
Book receptacles are located on
the Diagonal, in the Union and
the League, and in several resi-
dence halls.
Students are urged by the com-
mittee to contribute any type of
volume, including textbooks and
paper bound editions.

bers have devoted their recent ac-
tivities to circulating petitions to
put the Communist Party on the
Michigan ballot. In this effort
they failed.
Neafus member Ernest Ellis is
also the chairman of the state
Student Commission on Commu-
nism. The Communists are sup-
porting Wallace for President "so
that America may maintain a
level of living and political free-
dom to minimize the effects of a
future depression," which Neafus
chairman Bill Carter, believes is
inevitable.
"The American people should
gradually become educated to so-
cialism," Carter says, "and if their
present political freedom is main-
tained the nation can change to
socialism democratically."
Carter further declared that so-
cialism is compatible with democ-
racy, and that from socialism,
Communism will eventually
evolve. "We do not advocate vio-
lence in the conversion to Com-
munism, but the American people
must be prepared for conflict if
the standing government tries to
counter the change by using
force," Carter said.
