'PROJECT X'
Light and Logical' Will Help
'Heifers for Europe' Drive

By ROMA LIPSKY
Half a dozen singers have found
a "light and logical" way to gather
f Ids for "Project X"--the Wes-
leyan Guild's drive to support
Heifers-for-Europe, student schol-
arships, CARE packages for Euro-
peans and other campaigns.
The Wesleyans will present
~Iron Curtai'
Film Receives
Split Opinion
"The Iron Curtain," presently
showing in Ann Arbor, is the cen-
ter of some controversial discus-
sion.
John Schoener, '50L,, president
of the Young Republicans Club,
belieyes that after the several
Left-Wing movies the Commu-
nists have sponsored, it is refresh-
ing to find a picture pointed in
the opposite direction.
He thought that the literature
distributed by the Communists
attacking the film was ineffec-
tive. "The handbills do little more
than clutter up the campus," he
said.
Bill Carter, '50A, president of
the Ralph Neafus Club, believes
that in view of the present anti-
Russian hysteria, "The Iron Cur-
tain" is definitely a warmonger-
ing picture.
"Hollywood' producers are be-
ginning a series of anti-Russian
pictures in order to appease the
Un-American Activities Commit-
tee, who recently exposed the pro-
ducers," he said.
Carter said that even though
several of the events in the pic-
"tre are distorted and exaggerat-
ed, it will not do any harm for
people to see it, but it will be
harmful if they swallow all its
contents. "People, especially .tu -
dents, should do their own inves-
tigating," he said.
One person who gets all the
views and opinions of the day is
the ticket taker at the State
Theatre. Although people are
finding the picture interesting and
entertaining, it is not causing any
great flurry of thought-they are
quite calmly taking it in their
stride, he stated. When asked
about anti-picture literature, he
said, "I know from experience
that picketing and handbills only
heighten interest, and thus boost
our business."

operetta at 8:30 p.m. today and
tomorrow in the Social Hall of
the First Methodist Church.
Connivance
The plot concerns a wealthy old
Duchess conniving to keep her
singing maid in her employment.
To carry out her plan, the
Duchess schemes to arrange a
marriage between the maid and
another employee, Sinon the logi-
cian.
Complications set in, however,
because Laura, the maid is in
love with the lamplighter Phillip.
Phillip proves to be a true hero,
and untwits the plot strands in
a way to bring happiness to every-
one concerned.

Star players in "Light and Log-
ical" are Beatrice Patton as Laura
and Jim Craven as Phillip. Other
members of the cast are: Edward

Jane McCoy, Virginia Blair, Mary

priced at 25 cents and may be
purchased at the door.
A reception for the cast will be
held in the Pine Room of the
church following tomorrow eve-
ning's performance.
Drive for Soap
Bubbles Along
Ann Arbor's own campaign to
collect soap for the children of
war-scarred Europe has brought
in more than 500 bars to date, ac-
cording to Mrs. N. W. Stetson, or-
ganizer of the drive.
But soap - lots of it - is still
needed if the 1000-bar quota is to
be reached before June 1, she said.
Bars or boxes of soap may be
left at Pierce House, 611 Church
Street. Monetary donations may
be sent to Mrs. Stetson, 1809 Char-
leton Street.
The soap drive was sparked by
Mary Ellen Lewis, Ann Arbor High
School teacher, after returning
from a recent trip to Europe
where she had ample opportunity
to observe the effects of depriva-
tion on the children there.

Roger Schwenn, 807 Oakland
Pl., reported to Sheriff's officers

versity avenue.
Two complete parking meters,
valued at $135 were stolen some
time during Tuesday night, ac-
cording to Ann Arbor police offi-
cials.
The Michigan Liquor Control
Commission will padlock Tiny's l
Tavern, 1006 Broadway on June 1
and keep the place closed to Sep-

persons to drink and loiter on the

be served to minors.
Owner William Liefso was given
his choice: $500 in fines or 100
more days of suspension added to
the present 90 days.

The American Anthropological
Association has chosen Dr. James
B. Griffin, director of the Michi-
gan Museum of Anthropology as
president of its Central States
Branch for the 1948-49 term.
Dr. Leslie A. White, chairman of
the department of anthropology
was named to the executive coun-
cil of the Association at the same
meeting of the organization.
The election was held in Mil-
waukee at the Association's an-
nual meeting, May 15.
Dr. Griffin, in his study of
archaeology, is noted for his re-
search on North American culture,
particularly that of the region
east of the Rocky Mountains and
Southern Canada. He has had
many papers published on this
subject and a book entitled "The
Fort Ancient Aspect.
In Mexico in 1944-45, Dr. Grif-
fin studied the relation of Mexi-
can to North American cultural.
Dr. White is a consultant in
ethnology in the Museum of An-
thropology. During a recent leave
of absence he was a visiting pro-
fessor at Yale University, conduct-
ing there a graduate seminar in
ethnological, theory. He will teach
at Columbia University during the
summer term.

leaves may grow 50 feet in length
with a leaf stalk often 12 or 15
feet long,

Thus Ended Their Mission of Mercy

-Ours Has Just Begun!

They set out to heal and save -knowing their peril
They were ambushed -murdered.
Their mission was not accompishd-in spite of all they gave.
We too have a mission of mercy-but without danger.
We are not asked to give our lives-just to give

OUR MISSION is to build and rebuild-
communities, homes, institutions, people.
OUR MISSION is to strengthen and de-
fend-the security of the Jews in Palestine
and the human rights of people every-
where.
OUR MISSION is to provide a home and
a welcome - for the dispossessed who
reached the promised land - for the
stranger newly arrived in our own beloved
America.

In 1948 the United Jewish Appeal asks
$250,000,000 from the people of America.
We in Ann Arbor must provide our shore
of this sum-by giving more than ade-
quately, more than generously--by giving
out of every resource.
Only in this way can our efforts merit
History's verdict-
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
