sociation will write quizzes at 7

ture of student government on
campus, information on NSA and

on Patterson Lake, 24 miles north-
west of Ann Arbor, underprivi-
leged boys with behavioral prob-
lems have received unforgettable
summer experiences along with
expert therapeutic treatment
every summer since 1921.
The generosity of University
faculty, alumni, students and
friends have made their vaca-

This year a $5,000 goal has been
set up for the Fresh Air Camp Tag
Day collections Wednesday.

THE 230 BOYS who are now
accommodated each summer in
two four-week sessions are select-
ed by social agencies in and
around Detroit.
"We try to get boys with
definite adjustment problems
who are not so far gone on the
road to delinquency that the
short summer program will not
do them any good," Director
Morse said.
At the camp the boys, who are
generally between the ages of
eight and 13, are worked into a
program of activities which in-
clude everything from organized
athletics to craft work and over-
night trips.

menco contended that orthodox
weapons for solving world prob-
lems have apparently failed.
"Perhaps things have come
to such a shape in the world
that we need a revolutionary ap-
proach," Efimenco said.
"As long as we fiddle around
with the UN we can have no gov-
ernment beyond it," Efimenco
said. He felt that there must be
a big jump in the minds of people
from a national loyalty to an in-
ternational one.

"THE ONLY WAY we can ex-
pect people to become aware of
world government is by dramatic
advertising, such as Davis has
done," he declared.

gin a three-day run of "Abe Lin-

At Health Service
Student health in March con-
tinued to be good, according to Dr.
Warren E. Forsythe, director of
the Health Service.
"Despite the highest second se-
mester enrollment in the history
of the University, compared to
other years the total number of
clinic calls was reduced slightly,"
he said.
At no time this year has it been
necessary to provide five hospital
beds per thousand population, a
standard agreed upon by health
authorities, Dr. Forsythe declared.

Prof. William P. Halstead. Jack
Bender, Grad., designed the nu-

Beginning with a rude scene

Paul Makushak shunned for ten
years closed in on him yesterday.
He didn't like it.
While psychiatrists sought to
plumb his mind, Makushak, 33,
pleaded to go back to the dark
filthy cubicle in the wall of a
Brooklyn tenement house where
he says he lived since 1939.

Tuesday night and fell back be-
fore the fetid air of the cubicle
and the strange sight confronting
Out crawled a massive man
wrapped in filthy rags. A great
fringe of curling dark beard
almost covered his face.
He was stooped and barely able
to stand after the ten years in
his three-by-five-foot cave. He
had not bathed in ten years.

THAT WAS the Paul Makushak
whom his tailor father, Peter, had
not seen since he went on an
errand for him ten years ago.
His mother, who fed him and
tended to his needs, guarded the
secret of his existence until she
was forced to go to a hospital
In anybody's book, one of them
is hustling, strapping Charles H.
(Chuck) Percy. Said TIMEl early
this year:
Ever since he was an undergradu~ate
at the University of Chicago, Charles
Ii ercy has been a young business-
man in a hurry. To work his way
through college (his banker father had
gone broke in the depression), Chuck
Percy ran a wholesale business supply-
ing the university's fraternities with
food, coal, furniture and linen. He also
held two other jobs, and captained the
rough, tough water polo team. In th~e
summer vacation of 1937 he took a job
at $12 a week in Chicago's Bell &
Howell Co. (cameras). For the next
IIf% years he was in & out of BelC&
Howell, but was seldom out of the
nind of its president, Joe H. McNabb.
It was McNabb who persuaded
Chuck Percy to work for Bell& Howell
on weekends and vacations, and gave
him a full-time job when he graduated
from Chicago in 94c. He was put in
charge of a nb department to handle
defense contracts. The contracts rolled
in so fast that six months later, when
Percy was 21, he was in charge of the
major part of Bell & Howell's business.
Just before he joined the Navy as a
seaman, McNabb made him assistant
secretary and a company director.
New Theme. Stationed on the West
Coast, Percy spent his spare time
studying West Coast industries and
the causes of strikes. His reports so
impressed McNabb that when Chuck
Percy was discharged (as lieutenant),
he became Bell & Howell's industrial
relations and personnel director.

"If we give in to a limited re-
striction, it won't be long until
holding hands will be considered
immoral," a worried-looking en-
gineer said.
Others feared that the volun-
tary withholding of affection
would become a campus craze.
"Just like goldfish swallowing,"
a freshman explained. However,
Mrs. Leona B. Diekema, social di-
rector of Martha Cook, was highly
pleased with the pledge.
"I hope," she said, "that this ac-,
tion, initiated entirely by the stu-
dents themselves, will be adopted
by all 5,000 women on campus and
that it will eventually include the
15,000 men, also."
