Liquor Law
Discussed
At Stockwell,
When minors misrepresent their
ages in order to buy alcoholic
beverages, ,they endanger both
themselves and the livelihood of;
the liquor licensee, Municipal!
Court Judge Francis O'Brien told
a Stockwell audience yesterday.
He outlined state liquor regula-
tions at a compulsory meeting of
all residents. The meeting was
called to "help prevent recurrence
of a situation inthe house earlier
this week," according to a spokes-
man for the woman's dormitory.
THE SPOKESMAN referred to
the use of false identification by
a Stockwell resident in an un-
successful attempt to purchase li-
quor at a local tavern.
The 20-year-old coed pleaded
guilty before Judge O'Brien
Wednesday and was ordered to
pay a total of $51.25 in fines
and costs.
In his talk yesterday, Judge
O'Brien pointed out that persons
under 21 who give false informa-
tion, whether it is verbal or do-
cumentary, subject themselves to
penalties as high as 60 days in
jail and a $100 fine.
EQUALLY GUILTY are persons_
over 21 who buy liquor for mirnors
or furnish them with identifica-
tion knowing it will be used to
misrepresent age, he said.
Judge O'Brien added that li-
quor licensees who sell to min-
ors are subject to severe penal-
ties, "despite circumstances and
despite good faith in the truth-
fulness of the purchaser."
"I don't believe University stu-
dents would misrepresent their
afts if they knew that the person
who ha$ faith in them may be
hurt," Judge O'Brien declared.
THE STOCKWELL coed who was
fined left the tavern when the
manager questioned her about her
identification, police said. Sus-"
picious, the manager kept the ID
and turned it over to police. It
turned out be that of a friend.
In another case, Karolina Hahn,'
owner of a tavern at 112 W. Liber-
ty, has been cited to a hearing'
April 5 before the Liquor Control
Commission in Detroit on charges
of serving a minor.
Grad Gets Award
Nafe Katter, Grad., has received
the first in a series of scholar-
ship awards on the WWJ radio
program, "Leaders of Tomorrow."
The program, heard at 1 p.m.
every Sunday, features students
from the University, University of
Detroit and Wayne University in
a round table discussion of topics
of current interest.

Three rugged University ath-
letes will become bathing beauties
next week.
The three, Dick Kempthorn and
Al Wistert of football fame, and
basketball ace Chuck Murray, will
portray "Miss Toledo," "Miss Buf-
falo" and "Miss Detroit" in "Lace
It Up," the forthcoming Union
Opera.
THESE THREE queens of the
beach 'will be part of the Opera's
big production number, based on
a "Carnival City" theme. The
bathing-beauty-athletes will be
involved in what Opera promo-
tions manager Cliff Rogers, '50
BAd, called a "song and motion"
act.
Strangely enough, the trio of
beauties will represent the same
three cities which the Opera
will visit during its spring va-
cation road trip. Road perform-
ances are scheduled for Apr. 10
in Buffalo, Apr. 11 and 12 in
Detroit and Apr. 13 in Toledo.
Locally, the curtain will rise on
"Lace It Up" at 8:30 p.m. Wednes-
day at the Michigan Theatre.
Succeeding local performances are
scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Thursday
and Friday, with a special matinee
performance at 3:15 p.m. Friday.
* * *
TICKETS FOR the matinee per-
formance are still available, ac-
cording to Rogers. Priced at $1.20
and $1.80, these tickets will be
on sale from 1 to 5 p.m. today and
Monday and from 5 to 8 p.m.
Tuesday at the box office in the
Union lobby.
Matinee ticket sales will con-
tinue from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Wednesday and Thursday and
from noon to 3:15 p.m. Friday
at the Michigan Theatre box
,office.
Tickets for the out-of-town per-
formances are available through
University alumni clubs in the cit-
ies concerned.
"LACE IT UP" takes a laughing
look at labor-management rela-
tions in a lingerie factory, accord-
ing to its authors, Bryce Durant,
'50, and Jack Leonard, '50.
It is being produced under the
direction of Bill Holbrook, veter-
an New York theatrical producer
and director.
Jim Ebersole, '50, is general
manager of this year's Opera, the
second to be presented since the
Opera's postwar revival.
Professor Elected3
Prof. Robley C. Williams of the
physics department has been
elected president of the Electron
Microscope Society of America for,
1950. The Society of 400 members
will meet in Detroit in September.

cooking are needed to turn out the
varied cuisine projected for the
Summer Projects Committee's
"Holiday Jamboree" food bazaar.
The Jamboree, scheduled from
8 to 11 p.m. today at Lane Hall
will combine summer projects in-
formation with dancing and in-
ternational entertainment. Pro-
ceeds from the bazaar will be
contributed to the World Student
Service Fund.
FORIEIGN STUDENTS wishing
to donate food atnd culinary skill
to the bazaar may use the Lane
Hall kitchen early today for pre-
paration, according to Lee Win-
neg, committee chairman.

Hall lobby will find representa-
tives and pamphlets ranged
bout the floor in booths with
information from Youth Hos-
tels, International Work Camps,

avans, summer seminars, and

Roi Takushi and his Hawaiian
Group, and Olivia loovit singing
lyric Estonian folk songs, plus
dances by foreign students will top
the lighter side of the bill.

By DICK EHRENBERG f
By projecting model size waves
against model harbors, engineers
are able to see how proposed har-
bor improvements will react under
prevailing weather conditions.
The scene of their study is the
lake hydraulic laboratory of the
civil engineering department at
Willow Run. *
THE ENGINEERS first con-
struct a model of the harbor in
perfect scale from specifications
supplied by the U.S. Corps of En-
gineers and the Michigan State
Waterways Commission, Prof. E.
F. Brater, head of the project, ex-
plained.
From a knowledge of wind
conditions, the height of the
prevailing waves and their di-
rections are determined and
waves, cut down in size to scale,
are sent against the existing
harbor.
Then, five or six different ar-
rangements of breakwaters and
channels are planned and con-
structed to scale.
These proposed harbor arrange-

ments are subjected to the same
wind and wave conditions that
exist at the present harbor, Brater
explained.
BY MEASURING the wave
heights with gauges on the pro-
posed harbors, it is found which of
the arrangements will prove most
satisfactory. "The idea is to keep
trying till you get it;" Brater add-
ed. "Once we succeeded in cutting
the wave height to one fourth its
previous size and the cost to
about six times the cost of the
model.
One of the projects recently
completed was the plan for Port
Austin, Michigan. This is one of
many "harbors of refuge" for
pleasure and fishing craft spon-
sored by the State. Brater said
that within a few days a con-
tract is expected to be signed
for work on Hammond Bay,
Michigan. %
The laboratory was originally
built for the Michigan State De-
partment of Conservation to be
used in the study of beach erosion.

Of Courthouse
UrgedLocally
Both the Ann Arbor Chamber
of Commerce and the Junior
Chamber of Commerce yesterday
issued formal statements urging
an affirmative vote on the county
building financing propositions in
the April 3 ballot.
If these financing propositions
are approved, a new county build-
ing will be built on the site of the
present one, at the corner of Main
and Huron in downtown Ann Ar-
bor.
There is a major controversy
between groups in Ann Arbor
which favor the downtown site,
and outlying communities, such
as Ypsilanti and Saline, which fa-
vor a site east of Ann Arbor near
the intersection of Washtenaw
and Stadium Blvd.
The statements issued by the
Ann Arbor Chamber of Commerce
and the Junior Chamber of Com-
merce are in direct opposition to
one issued earlier this week by the
Ypsilanti Chamber of Commerce.
The Ypsilanti group expressed
the opinion that the building
should be located elsewhere than
the present site from the stand-
point of economy and public con-
venience.

TIMBER TROUBLES....
Furor Caused in Past Years
By Mighty Elm, Calico Rock-

By ROBERT VAUGHN
"More than half a century here
stood the class tree of '69 growing
to a mighty elm."
These words are engraved on a
small bronze plaque inserted in
the floor of Rm. 1014 in Angell
Hall marking the original site of
the "mighty elm and Calico Rock."

THE TREE still stands and the
rock lies firmly on campus soil
but not where they were first

planted in May of 1869 by the
senior class.
Both are located today just
north of the front entrance of
Angell Hall. Students pass them,
usually without a glance and
probably without knowing the
story of their tumultous career.
Originally the elm and Calico,
Rock were located in front of an-:
cient University Hall where Angell
Hall stands today.
The seniors of '69 hired two;
teams of horses and transported:
the tree from neighboring woods.
A little later the entire class
trudged. out old Washtenaw road
and brought back the rock.
The elm was carefully tended
and the rock was unmolested un-
til the freshmen of that year tried
to capture and bury the "Calico
Rock." They were repulsed, how-
ever, and a guard was placed
around the senior class memorial
each night.
AN ATTACK was then launched
on the embattled stone by mem-
bers of the sophomore class. Only
the courage of one lone senior, who
stood on the rock with a club and
held them off until help arrived,
prevented the disappearance of
the memorial.j
One freshman, inspired by the
spirited defense wrote:
"How boldly too, almost alone
Night after night around their
stone
They steadfast stand, with
watchful eye,
Lest some vile wretches steal
* their prize."
But the greatest danger came in
1922 when excavation for Angell
Hall construction began. The tree
lay directly in the path of the
steam shovel.
CHARLES F. BRUSH, '69, mus-
tered enough class spirit to take
steps for the tree's survival and
transfer to its present site.
But the "mighty elm" was not
