Danish Film
'Day of Wrath'
To Be Shown
Midwest Premier
Will Be Held at Hill
Another first for Ann Arbor
will be the presentation of "Day of
Wrath," a Danish film, scheduled
to have its midwestern premiere
at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow and Satur-
day at Hill Auditorium.
"Day of Wrath" was first shown
in New York where is was brought
to the attention of the public by
a controversy between movie crit-
ics over its merits. The pro-"Day
of Wrath" critics won and since
then this film has enjoyed suc-
cessful showings.
THE STORY of the movie is set
in 17th century Denmark, in a
land and a time when people be-
lieved in witches and the rightness
of killing them.
The plot deals with a young
girl who is forced to live an as-
cetic life both because of the
time in which she lives and her
niarriage to a pastor.
Moral conflicts arise within her
as she becomes more and more re-
bellious against her environment.
According to Life magazine,
"Day of Wrath" is a "profoundly
moving emotional experience."

the evolution of the traditional
show from the earliest "home-
made" productions through its
more finished successors.
* * *
"MICHIGENDA," presented in
1908, was a slapstick comedy, local
in scene, which capitalized on the
antics of the "girls" and the por-
trayal of campus characters.
A broadening of geographic
scope and an attempt to get
away from overworked campus
humor characterized the pro-
ductions of the following years
as they became more and more
professional.
In 1918, "Fools Paradise" made
an extended tour to Toledo, Grand
Rapids, Battle Creek and Chicago.
"Let's Go," presented the follow-
ing year, broke with tradition as
coeds appeared in principal and
chorus parts.
* * *
AMONG THE songs written for
the early productions are several
old favorites: "When Night Falls,"
"Bum Army," and the "Friars
Song."
The stage for the early produc-
tions was provided by the old
Majestic Theatre on Maynard St.

Appeal for
Action Made
By Williams
LANSING-(P)-Governor Wil-
liams made a personal appeal to
leaders of both parties in the
House and Senate yesterday in an
effort to get some action on his
legislative program.
The Governor called the party
whips into his office to say he
stood willing to offer them any
assistance and tobring in any ex-
perts they needed on any question.
* * *
WITH THE exception of bills on
education, housing and highway
improvements, Williams said he
had placed before the low-makers
"the program I went to the people
with and the one I believe they
want."
He noted that the Legislature
had taken some action on in-
creased grants to old age as-
sistance, repeal of the old age
assistance recovery act, in-
creased grants to dependent
children and the blind and
stream pollution.
"I note that the Democratic and
Republican conventions both sup-
ported a civil rights law." Williams
said. "Because of this joint inter-
est, I see no reason why we should
not get immediate bi-partisan
action on a civil rights act."
SPEAKER Victor A. Knox (Rep.,
Sault Ste. Marie) remanded the
Governor that a Republican legis-
lative committee was considering
a fair employement practice law.
Knox said he doubted whether
there would be any action on any
appropriations bills until mid-
April or later.
Senator Harold M. Tripp
(Rep., Allegan) the Republican
president pro tem of the Senate,
said he believed the Senate La-
bor Committee would soon re-
port out a labor bill "satisfac-
tary to you, to labor and to man-
agement." Another committee
is close to agreement on a new
corrections law, Tripp said.
Tour Application
Deadline Extended
Deadline for applications for
NSA sponsored tours has been ex-
tended to March 21.
Information about these Euro-
pean trips will be available from
4 to 4:45 p.m. today in the Office
of Student Affairs.

i we all pull together!

* Let's compare yesterday with today.. .
that will give us an idea of what tomor-
row can be!
Machine Power: Since 1910 we have increased our
supply of machine power 4% times.
Production: Since 1910 we have more than doubled
the output each of us produces for every hour we work.

Income: Since 1910 we have increased our annual in-
come from less than $2400 per household to about
$4000 (in dollars of the same purchasing power).
Work Hours: Yet, since 1910 we have cut 18 hours
from our average workweek-equivalent to two pres-
ent average workdays.
HOW have we achieved all this? Through the
American kind of teamwork! And what is teamwork?

American teamwork is management that pays
reasonable wages and takes fair profits-that pro-
vides the best machines, tools, materials and
working conditions it possibly can-that seeks
new methods, new markets, new ideas; that bar-
gains freely and fairly with its employees.
Our teamwork is labor that produces as effi-
ciently and as much as it can-that realizes its
standard of living ultimately dependsupon}how
much America produces-that expects better wages
as it helps increase that production.
