PROF. ABBOTT figures the sta-

miles from Ann Arbor. "But that's
only possible for listeners who have
outside aerials which are quite
high. These are necessary to get
distance," he explained.
"In any event," Prof. Abbott
continued, "the coverage is ade-

LEOPARD DIES AFTER CAPTURE - A large dose of knockout
drops in a horsemeat ;bait, high excitement and -sudden depression
were the causes for the death of the leopard shown above in a
temporary cage after his capture by Lincoln Park Zoo officials
and a Marine reserve unit in Oklahoma City. The leopard had
terrorized the city for more than two days while at large, but
he did no damage.

'U' Students
Plan Help for
Coal miners' families without
food may soon get help if a stu-
dent-sponsored drive for food
funds attractsdenough student in-
The drive is backed by 11 Uni-
versity students who visited coal
towns in Pennsylvania to get a
picture of the miners' situation in
the strike.
Students will contact coopera-
tive housing units, church guilds,
and other campus organizations
for help in the drive. Each unit
will be asked to give enough
money for one case of food
which will cost from $3 to $5.
The American Veterans' Com-
mittee will try to provide a truck
to drive food supplies to the min-
ers' families in Pennsylvania, ac-
cording to John Sloss, chairman.
Any student interested in con-
tributing to the drive should con-
tact Ed Lewinson for details.
Tax Return
Aid Available
Students desiring help in filing
1949 income tax returns before the
March 15 deadline should contact
Student Legislature's Better Busi-
ness Bureau in the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs from 3 to 5 p.m.
daily, according to Irv Stenn, '51,
newly appointed BBB director.
Stenn, who has just completed
a study of student income tax
returns in cooperation with Maur-
ice S. Hahn, lecturer in the School
of Business Administration, said
that the Bureau's new income tax
service will provide assistance for
any student who needs help in
making out returns.

ly than with private owners," Leo
Karpoff, president of the UMW
local at Cokesburg, Pa., told the
Karpoff declared that miners
had no fear of the Washington
trial in which the union was
charged with contempt of court.
If the union had been fined
miners would have felt that the
decision was a means to clean
out the union treasury funds.
But he added that his union
would have insisted that the funds
be replaced by the government or
operators before returning to
REGARDLESS of what circum-
stances befall the miners, they
are determined to stay away from
the pits until a workable contract
has been signed by the opera-
tors or by the {government. "It's a
simple case of no contract - no
work," Karpoff said.
Some miners' families may
find it tough going, however,
because many are in need of
food and clothing. They cannot
turn to the union for funds, for
this would indicate that John L.
Lewis was not sincere when he
ordered the miners back to
work, the union leader declared.
In some cases the CIO Steel-
workers have given aid, but these
instances are rare. A government
agency has also provided surplus
potatoes to needy families. But
the bulk of the mining community
depends on credit fro~m the local
stores or county relief.
"But the storeowners cannot
continue to give out credit with-
out getting paid. And miners
cannot get relief from the county
without signing 'judgments' which
require prior order debt paying,
so most miners with property
avoid them," Karpoff said.
* * *
THE STRIKE has not changed
the miners' opinion of John L.
Lewis. "If any man got up at a
union meeting to condemn Lewis,
he'd be bounced from the meet-
ing," according to Karpoff.
But the miners do believe that
Lewis was sincere in his back to
work order. Miners are acting as
individuals in staying away from
the mines, the union leader said.

Out in California, people do
things in a big way.
One of the biggest projects ever
conceived in that sunny land came
from a student dormitory at the
University of California.
WHEN A national magazine
pointed out that elephants had
dropped in price from $4,000 to
$3,000, university students decid-
ed to buy one-for a house pet.
One student from India said he
could get an elephant for $50
f.o.b. Bombay.
And they thought of all sorts
of clever uses for the monstrous
animal. Arfo, as the animal was
to be named, could provide
around-the-campus transporta-
tion, car washing and automatic
garbage disposal.
The football season would bring
him to his prime. Sent early to
the game, Arfo could save at least
200 seats, students reasoned.

Seven College
Debate Teams
Here Today
Six Michigan schools and one
Ohio school will be represented by
more than sixty college debaters
today in an invitational debate
tournament in Rm. 4001, Angell
Debate teams from the Univer-
sity, Michigan State Normal Col-
lege, University of Detroit, Wayne
University, Western Michigan Col-
lege of Education, Central Michi-
gan College of Education and
Denison University, Granville,

"Resolved, That the United
States Should Nationalize Basic,
Nonagricultural Industries" will

Each school will debate six
times before the University's
regular classes in the speech de-
partment, which is sponsoring
the gathering.
University debaters participat-
ing are David Belin, '51; Russell

account the city of Berkeley. City
officials cast a disapproving eye
on the whole project. Though they
might not prohibit the purchase
of such a pet, they warned, "the
boys better not be running around
the city with an elephant without
city council approval."
California weather had a San
Jose State College meteorology
student so discouraged that he
proposed to legislate better
weather. He drew up a bill aim-
ed to produce normal rainfall
throughout the state.
The proposal suggested that stu-
dents dress for the best summer
weather, wash automobiles and
generally ignore predictions of
rain. Statistical rain averages
would jump with this environ-
mental encouragement, the stu-
dent observed.
