Engineer Ev Ellin Works 254Tori' Day

A volume of the encyclopedia

complete list of Ev Ellin's activi-
Ellin, a graduate engineer, has
run the gamut of campus organi-
zations from the Publications
Building to the Engineering Coun-
ci, with a detour to the Union
and Student Government and a
generous sprinkling of honorary

HIS THEORY for keeping track
of his many positions while still
getting school work done is that
the more things you do, the more
time you have.
"When you're busy, you don't
waste time," he says.
Ellin's extra - curricular life
began when he was still a fresh-
man, with work on The Daily
and election to the Engineering
He soon became president of the
Engineering Council, but trans-
ferred his writing abilities to the
'Ensian. As sports editor, he put
out a 56 page sports section in the
1948 issue, commemorating Mich-
igan's greatest athletic year. The
Athletic department is planning
to reprint this section for national
EX-PRESIDENT of Men's Judi-
ciary council, Ellin was one of the
organizers of that group, and Ju-
die's representative on the Student
Affairs Committee, Committee on
Discipline, and the Board of Dir-
ectors of the Union.
A folk song enthusiast, VIlin
needs only a stetson hat and a
guitar to make him happy, but
beer or scotch improve his play-
ing. Musical plus art interests
Local officials who may have a
say in the fight of William
"Shorty" Padgett for freedom
from South Michigan Prison heard
a wire record of his testimony
while under the influence of truth
Police Chief Casper Enkemann,
one of the officials, then an-
nounced yesterday that he would
not oppose a parole or pardon.
Others reserved theirdecisions un-
til receiving word from the State

PADGETT consistently denied,
although under the influence of
the drug, that he had been in
Ann Arbor on the date which he
is supposed to have killed Police
,Officer Clifford Stang. He main-
tained he had never been in Ann
Arbor previous to his extradition
here from California in 1936 to
face first degree murder charges.
He insisted that the proprie-
tors of the store in which the
shooting occurred during an at-
tempted robbery, "made a mis-
take," when they positively iden-
Padgett has presented affidavits
from Pennsylvania to the effect
that he was in Harrisburg, Pa., on
March 19 and 20, and insists he
was in York, Pa., on the day of
the shooting, although there is no
written proof of this assertion.
SLIDE-RULE SENSATION-Ev Ellin, pictured above, might be
checking over a report for Men's Judic, or the Engineering Coun-
cil. or looking over last year's 'Ensiati. for which he was sports
editor. In the background, out of camera ringe, is a victrola play-
ing Burl Ives records, a pair of shiny unused skis, a beer bottle,
and an application blank for a sinmmer Euaropean tour.

Members of the United World

interested in obtaining more in-
formation about world govern-
ment, or in discussing any aspect
of it to attend "gripe sessions"
from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. any day
this week in the Union.
The "gripe sessions" are being
held in connection with nation-
wide observance of World Gov-
ernment Week from March 6-12.
A few UWF members will be on
hand every day to discuss foreign
relations, international affairs,
the UN and world government.
UWF has described this ven-

HE IS PLANNING to go to
Europe this summer, either on a
study scholarship, or on a tour,

Ellin hails from Chicago, where
his favorite pastime is trips to the
art museum. In high school his
activities included work on the
school newspaper and tennis,
which he finds little time for here.
Ellin has spent several summers
in Colorado and Montana, which
probably explains his propensity
for guitar playing.

For the socially minded, Hillel

By July of the present year more
than 200,000 Michigan state vet-
erans may no longer be covered
by provisions of the Michigan Un-
employment Compensation Act.
Governor G. Mennen Williams re-
cently told the Ann Arbor chapter,
American Veterans Committee.
The situation that will face
many vets if the Servicemen's

Governor Williams noted that
without benefits, of the Readjust-
ment Act, many ex-servicemen
will have no protection at all,
other than direct relief.
HE WARNED that "failure to
extend the provisions of the act
will defeat the original intent and
meaning for vets by failing to
provide a cushion against unem-
ployment during the present pe-

According to the Governor,
graduating veterans must face
labor market competition with

MUCA or the SRA, if the latter
is allowed to fold in July.
He then advocated immediate
action to get a bill, extending the
SRA functional period, to the
floor of Congress.
IN LAP OF LUXURY:
Campus Buildings May Spot
Heated Sidewalks at Doors
Now we're going to have elec-
trically heated sidewalks!
According to the current issue
of "Mademoiselle" magazine, the
University has already installed
electrical wiring underneath some
of the campus sidewalks to melt
* * * -
WHEN ASKED about the arti-
cle, Lynn W. Fry, supervising ar-
chitect of the Plant Department,
said no such wiring has been in-
stalled yet, but tentative plans
call for heated sidewalks at the
entrances of several campus build-
He pointed out that the cam-
pus is already criss-crossed with
heating tunnels and that where
they near the surface of the
ground, the snow was melted.
Included in the group of build-
ings whose entrances may be elec-
trically heated are Angell Hall
and its proposed addition; the
General Library and its proposed
addition; and the basement load-
ing entrance to the Library.

ACCORDING to Fry, the cur-
rent expense of keeping the heav-
ily used entrance walks clean and
the damage done to the floors of
these buildings by students track-
ing in salt and water indicates
that the proposed heated side-
walks would be profitable in the
