ROTC Graduation Will Be Held Today

This unsolicited popularity
Rosemary took with good humor,
although she had not put the ad
in the paper. A friend of hers had
let his sense of humor run away
with him. As a result, Rosemary's
"sense of humor muscles" were
getting a good workout.
Free Enterprise
During the evening, 41 fellows
with a dozen different "lines"
called for "Rosemary." The West
Quad was well represented by a
caller who used an "Amos 'n'
Andy dialect. He informed the
girl on phone-duty that "there ah
fo'teen other guys ovah hyar, just
itchin' to date Rosemary."
Naturally, seve ral gagsters
called just for the "heck of it."
Four were honest enough to ad-
mit they were just curious, one
confidently stating that "he
hadn't come to that yet." One
"Herman Scmaltz" called, another
said he was "Al Mich."I
Several said they would call
back, and one did-four times in
the next three days.
A Helping Hand
One "good hearted" fellow called
to remind "Rosemary" of another
ad in the Personal column put in
by a "disillusioned student." This
altruistic chap said he didn't want
a date himself, but was just try-
ing to be helpful.
The affair was soundly enjoyed
by the rest of the girls in the
house, with most of the twenty-
nine of them serving as an audi-
ence for the one-every-five-min-
ute phone calls.
Each took turns at answering
the phone. One kept a box score
of the callers, listing them under.
"serious" (6), "gag" (5), "semi-
serious" (6), "call-back" (12),and
"called twice" (3). Three left their
phone numbers and wanted Rose-
mary to call them!
Just Like 'Kilroy'
However, the evening was
topped off when Rosemary came
home (she had made an escape
to the study halls in Rackham) to
find the whole house waiting up
for her. They were well rewarded
when she told them-still smil-
ing doggedly-that another friend
had seen the ad and he promptly
went into action.
When Rosemary went to the
League cafeteria for a coke that
night she glanced at the menu for
the next day's breakfast. "Cereal,
orange juice, some rhubarb, and
then underneath-'Rosemary was

UWF To Hold
Meeting Today
A public meeting to explain the
purposes and policies of the Unit-
ed World Federalists will be held
at 8 p.m. today in the AB room
of the League.
Ann Arbor citizens, including
business men, lawyers, faculty
members, and representatives of
Women's clubs will be present.
The purpose of the meeting, as
outlined by Deborah Rabinowitz,
of the UWF executive council, is
"to give the Ann Arbor townspeo-
ple an opportunity to compare
ideas on the subject of world fed-
eration, and perhaps to collabo-
rate with our group.
"We are holding this meeting
at the request of many interested
townspeople who agree with us
that world federation, if it is to
be achieved, must be more than, a
student project," she said.
Gillis Corcos, member of the Na-
tional Executive Council UWF will
speak and lead a discussion from
the floor.
Chinese Quartet
Wins Bridge Meet
A four-man Chinese quartet
swept to a decisive victory over a
field of 30 predominantly Amer-
ican teams in the finals of the
International Center all-campus
duplicate bridge tournament Sun-
day night.
Members of the winning team
were: K. K. Chan, J. T. Cheng, C.
M. Chu and S. J. Cheng.



Manuscripts, photographs,t
paintings and books pertaining tor
drama currently on exhibit at the
General Library are but a fraction
of six cases of material recently
donated by producer Mauricet
Browne and his wife, Ellen Van
Volkenburg, Michigan graduates.
The quantities of theatrical
material on exhibit are of signifi-
cance in the history of recent and
contemporary English and Ameri-
can drama.
Little Theatres2
Maurice Browne and Ellen Vant
Volkenburg, class of '04, are well
known as principal founders of
the "little theatre" movement in
this country. The two established'
the Chicago Little Theatre in 1912
and from its beginning there, car-
ried the movement across thea
"This movement, more than
anything else helped to carry the
modern drama of that period to
the people of the lesser cities of
the country," Dr. Warner G. Rice,
library director, said yesterday.
"Besides his work as a producer
of plays, Browne is also an actor,
poet and playwright," Dr. Rice
added. "His place as one of the
founders of the American theatre
has put him in contact with the
peolle who gave him originally the
materials now on display and
many more which are being added
to the University's collection."
Signed Letters
Letters signed by John Mase-
field, George Bernard Shaw, Greer

Garson, Paul Robeson and John
Galsworthy are but a few of the
many manuscripts included in the
Robeson's letters concern the
original Robeson-Othello before it
was produced by Maurice Browne.
Of outstanding interest, ac-
cording to Dr. Rice, are prompt
books used in two of Maurice
Browne's many productions,
"Journey's End" and "Wings Over
Europe." "The profuse notations
in the margins give some idea of
the amount of work and care tak-
en in the production of a play."
Autographed Editions.
Autographed editions of the
works of many English and Amer-
ican writers are abundant in the
collection. "The library has been
particularly enriched u-he ad-
dition of contemporary works such
as those of Arthur Davison Ficke,
a personal friend of .the donor,"
Dr. Rice said.


The first issue of "Fore 'n Aft,"
the recently revived publication of
the Michigan NROTC Unit, will be
published this afternoon.
Those who were here during
the war, when the local Navy Unit
was going in high gear, will re-
member the publication from
which the present name is taken.
The newspaper, which will be
published once a month next year,
is -piloted by Dick Cook and Bob
Isaacson, Co-editors-in-Chief.
