Hit Predicted
For Students'
New Coniedy
The promoters of "Froggy Bot-
tom" think they have found an-
other hit.
This time it's "Boy Meets Girl,"
the comedy being presented by
the University Student Players,
Friday, May 13 and Sunday, May
15 at the Masonic Temple.
Bill Zerman, who was publicity
director for the first post-war Un-
ion opera, has picked ten of the
top promotion men for "Froggy
Bottom" to help him publicize
"Boy Meets Girl."
SOME OF THE TOP talent on
campus has been tapped to bring
the former Broadway success to
Ann'Arbor,according to Zerman.
Bunny Bromwell, who played a
leading role last year in the
Student Players' production of
"The Voice of the Turtle" acts
the part of an insipid blonde
waitress.
'Red' Corbett and Aram Nahob-
edian, who played the roles of
Nick and the drunk in "Time of
Your Life," portrays two zany
Hollywood writers who build' a
movie around 'Happy,' the wait-
ress' illegitimate baby.
* * *
DAN DWORSKY, who plays a
romantic lead, is proving himself
as adept in a torrid love scene as
he is with a football, says Zer-
man.
Most experienced member of
the cast is Jan Bout, who ap-
peared with some of the leading
actors in Holland before he
came to the University.
Proceeds of the play will go to
the University Fresh Air Camp.
Steere Elected
Norm Steere, '50E, was elected
president of Sigma Rho Tau, en-
gineering speech society, for the

dents, Bob Skulstad, '49E, Carl

Pfaffman, '51E; secretaries, Jim
Nyberg, '52E, Howard Luckey,

sador, Tom Ramage, '50SpecE.

Local Lady
Campaigns
For Center
Consults Lansing
Representatives
The battle to save the Veterans'
Readjustment Center from, a fi-
nancial death July 1 has stimu-
lated a local citizen to campaign
personally on the patients' be-
half.
Mrs. Oscar Agre of Ann Arbor,
has spent most of the last two
days speaking with Lansing rep-
resentatives as "an interested ob-
server of the Center's fight," she
explained.
* m *
"I FEEL IT IS A pity that the
patients are compelled to fight
their own battle. As an individual
I think I have a voice and a re-
sponsibility in the matter," she
said.
A religious and social welfare
worker for many years, Mrs.
Agre noted she was "encouraged
by my reception at Lansing."
"The general impression I re-
ceived was that sentiment there
highly favors continued clinic op-
erations. Legislators agreed a pro-
gram should be put in effect, but
they were divided in answer to the
question of who should administer
the Center."
* * *
SHE REPORTED most repre-
sentatives feel the Veterans Trust
Fund, instead of the state, should
maintain the clinic.
From her own observations she
declared, "Anything in the realm
of mental health involves high
costs. The Center is necessary as
part of the current national re-
habilitation program."
Meanwhile the Ann Arbor Vet-
eran's Council, the local American
Legion Post, townspeople and pa-
tients at the Center have pledged
to do everything possible to con-
tinue operation of the Center.
Of Birds and Boys

their parents.

Ford Strike Still Threatens
As Recess Halts Aritration

DETROIT - :+&Pb-Final peace
talks aimed at lieading off a
strike of 65,000 Ford workers were
recessed late today.
Ford and CIO-United Auto
Workers leaders agreed after a
three-hour conference to meet
again at 8 p.m. (CDT).
A strike which would idle all
106,000 production workers was
only 16 hours away from the
scheduled resumption of negotia-
tions.
A ROUGE PLANT strike would
directly affect 65.000 workers but
since it manufactures many parts
vital to operations in 48 other
plantstacross the nation, the com-
pany said its other factories
would be forced to close in two
weeks or less.
John S. Bugas, Ford vice pres-
ident in charge of industrial re-
lations, headed the company ne-
gotiators at the eleventh-hour
conference. Secretary-treasurer
Emil Mazey led the uyion dele-
gation.
UAW President Walter Reuther
did not attend despite Bugas' in-
vitation.

AS THE TALKS opened the
UAW held fast to Reuther's
charges of company -"double deal-
ing, bad faith and speed-up in
violation of contract."
Bugas, denying any quicken-
ing of the assembly line pace,
said he was not accusing Reu-
ther of bad faith.
But he said he was concluding
from "intemperate, irresponsible,
baseless" union charges that it
was "determined to call a strike
without reference to the facts."
ALMOST LOST by the unex-
pected and bigger Rouge plant de-
velopments was a scheduled walk-
out of 3,500 workers at Ford's Lin-
coln-Mercury plant here. That
also is set for tomorrow noon and
stems from a similar speed-up dis-
pute.
Misnomer
JACKSONVILLE - Zoologists
point out that the "walking stick"
is not a stick at all, but an in-
sect that hides in the bushes dur-
ing the day and creeps around at
night nibbling leaves.

DAPHNEPHORIC?
Two-Step Endangered
By Revived Gree~ Dance

Against Plato
NEW YORK-Babies come into
the world without ideas of right
or wrong. They acquire their so-
cial behavior patterns from their
home and school environments.

Modern dancing's two-step clutch
may soon give way to a revival
of the Daphnephoric Bound.
Once the craze of all Classic
Greece, this ancient step will re-
ceive its initial Ann Arbor per-
formance in the Gilbert and Sul-
livan Society's production of "Pa-
tience," May 12, 13 and 14 at Pat-
tengill Auditorium.

State Needs'
Teachers for
Grad Schools
Upwards of 2,500 elementary
school teachers will be needed in
Michigan this year, but the prob-
able number who will want to
teach in the primary schools is
only 700.
These statistics are part of the
Annual Study of Teacher Supply,
Demand and Placement sponsored
by the University Bureau of Ap-
pointments in cooperation with
all other Teacher Placement Bu-
reaus and Public School Adminis-
trators in Michigan.
ACCORDING to the study, fields
n which teacher supply and de-
mand approach a balance are spe-
cial education, English, Latin,
nathematics, industrial arts and
nusic.
Besides elementary education,
there is an under-supply of
teachers in general science, agri-
culture, home economics, com-
mercial studies and library sci-
ence, the study continues.
Statistics show that prospective
ocial science speech, journalism,
Romance languages, art and physi-
cal education teachers will find
heir fields oversupplied with in-
tructors.
MANY STATE Board Special
Certificates are offered in Michi-
gan to individuals who do not
meet teaching requirements but
re needed to fill positions.
Salaries offered to beginning
eachers range from $2,400 to $3,-
00 per year.

peak of aesthetic achievement-
the lawmaker himself was said to
have been desperately in love with
a Daphnophoric Bounder--will be
performed by 20 rapturous maid-
ens at the operetta's presentation.
Accompanying themselves on
archaic lutes, pipes and cym-
bals, the maidens will attempt
to demonstrate the intricacies
of classic dancing.
Too rapid spread of the Bound
has been warned against by
Jimmie Lorbaugh, star of the Un-
ion Opera and choreographer of
the operetta, who points out that
the step is part of a symbolic
love dance, the potency of which
may have weird effects upon mod-
ern civilization.

TICKETS for "Patience" may be
purchased Monday through Fri-
day from 9 a.m. to noon and from
1 to 5 p.m. at the Administra-
tion Building.
Aid Asked by
Chinese Here
One hundred Chinese students
at the University have applied for
aid from the State Department
under the terms of a $500,000
Economic Cooperation Adminis-
tration allottment, according to
Esson M. Gale, foreign student
counselor.
The grant is designed to help
students in scientific and techno-
logical fields who are unable to
obtain funds from China. ECA
has diverted the sum from its
original purpose which was phys-
ical rehabilitation of China.
Chinese students in non-tech-
nological fields are currently re-
ceiving aid from private dona-
tions. Dr. Gale said that the In-
ternational Center is the clearing-
house for all contributions.
Chairman Named
Miss Agnes E. Well, acting dean
of women from December, 1917
through June, 1918, has been
named chairman of the National
Women's Party.
The Women's Party is currently
campaigning for passage of the
"equal rights for women" amend-
ment to the U.S. Constitution.
