FOR CAMERA-SHY SENIORS:
'Ensian Extends Picture
Appointment Sign-up Date,

+ 'Einsian staffers, speculating on
the evident reluctance of some
of the seniors to sign up for their
'49 Michiganensian pictures, think
some of the seniors must have
photo-phobia.
This Freudian faction claims
that after four years, experience
with ID cards, many seniors have
become negatively conditioned to
cameras. The click of a shutter
shiakes these poor victims dash
madly off in the opposite direc-
tion.
** *
THE ENSIAN, sympathizing
with these now camera-shy sen-
iors, has extended the time
through which the photographers
will take pictures to Saturday, Oc-
tober 30.
Those seniors who have not
signed up as yet for pictures
may still do so this week at the
Ensian office from 2 p.m.-5 p.m.
And for the seniors who none-
the-less can't find it in themselves
to come so near the photographers

in the Student Publications Build- Y :r":
ing, the Ensian inaugurates a spe-
cial service. All day tomorrow f \
(Wed.) the Ensian staffers will be
on campus to make appointments'
for pictures, and take subscrip-
tions for the '49 Ensian.
** *
SENIORS WHO want to make
appointments, and students who }
would like to sign up for their En-
sians at the current lowest rate,.
will find solicitous Ensian men
waiting for them.
They'll be at the Union,
League, Engine Arch, Diagonal,
and Willow Run bus stop. "a

SENIORS are guaranteed not toj
look regressed, repressed, or even
slightly hysterical. Nor shall they
bear any resemblance to Johnny-

Psych 31 film of the same name. ..::..
'Ensianites say that "you will look
like you, that's all we can do."

'U' Courses
NotA ffected
BDecision
Courts might prohibit religious
teaching at the University if in-
structors insert sectarian empha-
sis in their courses, according to
Edward W. Blakeman, Research1
Consultant in Religious Educa-
tion.
Blakeman, is working to im-
prove religious facilities at the
University.
** *
HE SAID the Supreme Court's
decision in March prohibiting "re-
leased time" in public schools for
religious instruction is not likely
to affect the teaching of religion
at the University.
As long as the instructors
avoid any sectarian emphasis,
Blakeman believes the teaching
would not be interpreted as un-
stitutional.
But if they do place such em-
phasis, he warned, the courts
would be justified in prohibiting
such teachings, on the grounds
that no state is allowed to provide
state institutions of learning with
funds to propagate a definite sect.
Alumni Show

ALAMEDA, Calif.-(A)-Happily
carying an old tin can with 12
pounds of dirty-looking silver in
it, Gerald T. Grace headed out
of the Naval Air Station here for
the United States mint.
The mint would refine the silver,
he explained, and the American
taxpayer would be saved (with
silver at 72 cents an ounce) around
$145.00. What makes Grace feel
good is that the silver was taken
off old airplane engine bearings
which otherwise would have been
sold for surplus.
* * * .
GRACE is civilian supervisor of
salvage and disposal at the Ala-
meda Naval Air Station, where it
also has been discovered that
there's gold in the hills of junk
airplanes and other surplus ma-
terial left over from the unpleas-
antness in the Pacific.
Gold is found as the plating
of certain radar parts, now ob-
solete, and what pleases Grace
is that they are getting $3.50
worth of gold off one type of old
radar conduit housing which at

one time was being sold as sur-
plus to junkmen for 15 cents.
"Never ridicule a junk dealer,"
Grace advises. "He gets fat on the
stuff the rest of us throw away if
we don't watch ourselves."
- * * *
"THERE'S GOT to be platinum
somewhere," he insists. "They used
gobs of it during the war." ,
"Keep looking," Grace replied.
Reclaiming precious metal
plating is a simple operation
known to any electroplater. You
just reverse the polarity of the
electroplating process, and the
metal comes off looking like or-
dinary mud.
The Navy has been doing it
here for three years, deplating
worn parts, but only recently has
begun taking gold and silver off
surplus parts.
* * *
RECLAIMING precious metal,
however, is only a tiny part of the
vast salvage operation carried on
here, partly under warehouse roofs
and pA tJ yout .in the open where

GOLD IN THAT THAR' JUNK:
Salvagers Rescue Surplus Metal

junk is piled high over acres of
concrete aprons.
"Screening and selection is the
secret," says Grace. First the
stuff is sorted for anything still
usable or salvageable by the
Navy. What is left is sold as
surplus.
Officials estimate that the whole
operation at this base alone is
saving the government $100,000,-
000 a year.
ONE OF THE sights Grace al-
ways takes visitors around to see
is an aluminum furnace where old
airplane wings are melted down
into aluminum "pigs" at a cost,
he says, of two and a half cents
a pound.
"With aluminum at 17 cents a
pound on the market this is not
peanuts," he says proudly, "espe-
cially when we are melting down
around 12,000 pounds a day. We
even sell the dross. There's a fellow
who thinks he can make aluminum
paint out of it. He comes and hauls
it away and pays us a penny a
pound."
