There has been considerable

The board's action climaxed 10
months of hearings, arguments,

by the members of state laws con-

Army Needs
Trained Grads
College graduates who have spe-

are critically needed by the Army,
according to Col. Karl Henion,
commanding officer of the Uni-

Positions are open in physics,
chemistry, meteorology, geography,
civil engineering and nuclear phy-
sics for all those interested in an
army career, Col. Henion reported.
Applicants must have a master's
or doctor's degree; or bachelor's

practical experience in their tech-

the armed forces prior to Sept. 2

THE TRIP the average baseball
score takes was revealed by E. D.
Whitesell, manager of the Ann Ar-'
bor Western Union office. "From
the game it goes by direct cable to
Chicago, the nerve-center of the
system, to be sent all over the
country. Then it's relayed to Cleve-
land almost instantaneously, and
from Cleveland it comes to Ann
Arbor and the Union," he said.
The Union doesn't have the
service all year, Leo Kennedy,
manager of the pool room said.
It begins with the world series
and lasts through the football
season. Then it's shut off until
