'REVIEWS OF PROGRESS:
Union Open House to Feature
Wonders of Modern ScienceI
By GEORGE WALKER
Looking through a long list of
adjectives with which to describe
the Union Open House, to be held
March 6, the men behind the af-
fair have come up with a new one
The 1948 version of the annual
event, which Union officers de-
scribe as "the biggest in Union
history," will feature two pres-
entations of the General Motors
show "Previews of Progress."
Briefly, the show is a demon-
stration of the more outstanding
"wonders of modern science." But
WHRV To Present
A murder mystery will be pre-
sented at 10:45 p.m. today over
WHRV as the second of the all-
student Michigan Radio Work-
First in a series of "Plays for
You," the drama "Today," is the
story of an almost-perfect mur-
der. Iit was written by Traverse
DuVall. The cast consists of John
CarrollanddJim Lynch, with Jim
Hold Those Bonds !
some of the scientific develop-
ments which the show covers
might better be called "miracles."
For instance, frying an egg
without heat sounds just a little
unbelievable. But the demonstra-
tors can prove that such a feat
is possible .by placing a telephone
book between the stove and the
frying pan, and removing the
book unharmed, after the egg has
been thoroughly fried.
Atomic Energy Too
Or, for spectators less intrigued
by the newest in culinary meth-
ods, there will be a demonstra-
tion of atomic energy, on a small
scale of course. This will be shown
in the form of a small, natural
"atomic bomb," composed par-
tially of uranium and is entirely
harmless. Tiny explosions will be
picked up by a Gieger counter
and amplified till they become
audible to the audience.
But that's not all. The show
will include exhibitions of the
manufacture of butyl rubber, jet
propulsion, infra-red rays, and
many other recent discoveries and
refinements from research lab-
Among other features of the
Open House, there will be a pool
and ping pong exhibition by cam-
pus experts, an aquatic show, and
afternoon and evening dancing.
To 19 Union
Silver keys were awarded 19
Union staff members at an
Awards banquet yesterday in rec-
ognition of outstanding work on
student committees and various
Dean Emeritus Joseph A. Bur-
sley in a brief address, told how
the Union had outgrown the
single house in which it was quar-
tered in 1904 and expanded stead-j
ily until it required the facilities
of its present two million dollar
building to carry out its many
Awards, presented by Allan

Puerto Rico Poets
Topic of Lecture

executive council. The new offi-
cers are: Carmen Navas of Puerto
Rico, president; Roberto Gordillo

"To the glory that was Greece
And the grandeur that was
Add the isolated Peace
Of a Willow Village Home.
Gene Volinsky, house director
l of Dorm one, doesn't care when
urchins use the gym and other
facilities, but now comes the
Drawing of the Line. With thef
first hot water in three days,
Gene paraded in for a bath, found
a grimy 10 year old had beaten
him, and was gleefully soaping
and singing just like he belonged.

Without enough stairs to climb
in village homes to keep the wives
trim, a Play and Games Group
(gymnastics) meets each Wednes-
day night to do something about
it. Wives feel that the girls at
Dorm 2 could add the Zip of
Youth to the weekly sessions in
the University Community Center
They are still talking about the
mysterious fire in Dorm 10 sev-
eral days back. Captain George
Cowell of the Village fire de-
partment said students Dean
Scott and James'Perkins had
beaten down the door and were
making headway on the fire when
help arrived. Only one catch-no
one was living in room 58!

For Villagers who think every
street and court looks like every

be featured in the new Residents

book will go out to all residents
