Third Sister from Korea
Is ScholarshipStudent Here

When Dr. Nan Kyung Koh en-
rolled last fall she became the
third in a trio of prominent sisters
from Korea to enter the Univer-
One of her sisters, Evelyn
Whang-Kyung Koh, earned an
M.A. degree in 1933 and a Ph.D.
in 1937 at the University. She is
now chief of the Women's Bureau
in Seoul, Korea.
The other sister, Gladys, studied
in the University School of Music

and is now director of the
tional Red Cross in Korea.
Youngest of Three
Dr. Nan Koh, youngest of


three sisters, is a Barbour Schol-
arship student. She is enrolled in
the School of Public Health and
is working toward a master's de-
gree in public health.
Prior to coming to the United
States, Dr. Koh had earned an
M.D. degree at the Tokyo Wom-
en's Medical College and subse-
quently practiced gynecology in
the American Military Govern-
ment's Bureau of Preventive Med-
icine in Seoul.
Preventive Aspects
Dr. Koh will complete her
studies at the University in Feb-
ruary. She is specializing in the
preventive aspects of maternal
and child health.
Her plans call for an eventual
return to Seoul and work in the
field of preventive medicine.
Dr. Koh is not likely to forget
her University days when she re-
turns to Seoul because, she says,
"there are about 20 former Mich-
igan students there."

Petitions for the top adminis-

on the 1948 Union Opera will con-
tinue to be received from 3 to 5
p.m. today through Friday in the
Student Offices of the Union.
According to Dave Leyshon,
chairman, the Executive Council
needs a permanent production
ohairman, promotion chairman,
and finance chairman.' Commit-
tee heads are also needed for cos-
tumes and make-up, properties,
settings, publicity, photography,
personnel and all other production
We also need men interested in
working as corresponding secre-
tary, recording secretary, budget
work, accounting and requisition
control," he said.
Emphasizing that all appoint-
ments would be made on a perm-
onent basis, Leyshon asked that
all petitions include school status

school as well as previous expe-
rience and other pertinent infor-
Petitions must be delivered in

here, a gesture there - James
Lynch, who has the title role, even
got his hair parted in the middle.
He also got his portrait painted in
television grays by WWJ-TV's

The portrait is among the
props which the station is build-
ing especially for the production.
"Especially for TV" has meant
plenty of experimental work for
both the writer, Robert Hawke,
'48, and the cast.
The comedy had to be written
with camera angles in mind, and
action had to be pared to fit video
requirements. The cast memo-
rized every line and gesture-no

sion. "It's like putting on a one-
act play-but with lots of new

U' Studeiit Fhied When End
Drops Off 1915 Model Car

Sunday was just one bad day
for Jerry Fauth, '50E - it rained
all day, he smashed up his 1915
Chevrolet and the University fined
him $10 for driving illegally.
It all began when he and his
date set out in the "Baby Grand"
1915 dust-raiser for a Sunday
jaunt. But turning from Packard
on to E. University was too much
for the ancient auto.
Off came the left rear-wheel:
the car did a dip and his date
squealed. Then the extra burden
on the right rear-wheel became
overwhelming and it splintered
into a thousand rotten and senile
slivers. Fauth, lady-friend and
.car :xle droppect two feet.
A Shiny Dodge
Ironically, they ended the Sun-
day drive by running back to
Fauth's fraternity house and bor-
rowing a shiny new 1948 Dodge.
Today Fauth is looking for
someone with two wheels for a
1915 Chevie (and a round pool
table) and conjecturing how next
to provide himself with locomno-
tion. But as some people collect
stamps, and others stack match-
folders, his hobby is saving old
'I m down to the 1913 Buick,'
he commented. Besides these two.
he has, or had at one time: a 1918
Buick, a 1922 Buick, a 1913 Pat-
terson (purchased last year from

a farmer who broke his arm
cranking it back in 1913, and had
not used it since) plus several
Model T's.
He Collects Them
"I suppose I've collected more
than 10 jalopies," said Fauth. who
has entered many of his vehicles
in the Veteran Motor Car Club
and has gotten permanent VMC
licenses for some of them.
But while he digs around for
other transportation, the 1915
Chevie, with more than 200,000
miles of happy driving behind it.
squats miserably on its rear
haunches by the fraternity house
wondering if it is headed back to
the scrap-heap from whence it
came. Fauth rescued the derelict
from a wartime Victory-Screp
Drive for $45,
Accidents Kill One,
Injure Nine Others
Four weekend traffic accidents
in Washtenaw County brought
death to Mrs. Alice L. Sterner,
26, of 1750 Fifth St., Dexter and
injuries to nine persons.
Three Ann Arborites received
injuries in the accidents. They
are: Jimmy Lillard, 5, and Nancy
Lillard, 6, 601 Mary Ct., and Mal-
colm Thomas, 29, of 2516 S. Main
St. They were treated at St. Jo-
seph's Hospital.
