Special Grant Aids Fire Hazard Attack

" ?

* * * *

Although it may sound like it
t times these days, employees of
lant Service are not razing the
oof of West Engine; instead they
re raising walls-in which to
lace fire doors.
This project is one of a series
f fire precaution measures finan-
ed by a special appropriation of
he State Legislature in 1947 to
liminate critical danger spots in
hie University's fire protection
BESIDES installing fire doors,
ome $20,000 worth of fire alarm
ystems have been put in 19 "in-
lamimable" buildings. Among the
roup are East Hall, Romance
anguage and the Economic and
harmacy Building.
Plant Superintendent Walter
Roth hopes to have fire alarm
systems soon in all educational
buildings of the University.
Thirty-three of them, ones like
.ngell Hall, Architecture & De-
gn, Mosher-Jordan and Marthal
ook are being considered for in-
With the furnishing of systems,
or the two women's dorms, there
'ill no longer be a University
esidence hall sans these safety
More fire escapes are also con-
emplated. Building of them on
oth Mason Hall and South Wing,
ccording to Roth, is "imminent."
But even though the entire ap-
ropriation has not been spent
et, it has more than paid its way

Last summer, it was the alarm
system installed in the General
Library - with the appropriated
funds - which gave the first ink-
ling of a blaze in a remote section
of the library stacks.
Officials prefer not to think

about what would have happen-
ed if the system hadn't been in
But Roth did say, "Installation
of the alarm setup at that time
saved an amount far superior to
the entire sum of the appropria-

SL Sets Up
Photo Talk
For Friday
Student Legislature's varsity
committee will sponsor an open
meeting between Ann Arbor and
student photographers at 4:30
p.m. Friday in the Union.
The meeting is designed to en-
able photographers to work out a
plan for awarding picture-taking
contracts at all-campus dances
held at the IM Building, accord-
ing to varsity committee chair-
man, Bob Vogt, '51.
POINTING OUT that the pre-
sent system of having student
dance committees award the con-
tracts has resulted in "confusion"
and charges of "favoritism," Vogt
said the meeting "should bring
about a closer understanding
among the photographers and re-
sult in the adoption of a sound
contract policy in the future."
The contract controversy flar-
ed into verbal warfare between
Ann Arbor and student photog-
raphers earlier this year with
both groups charging each other
with attempting to wrangle con-
tracts from student dance com-
At that time, Bob Gach, owner
of a local camera shop, charged
that the present setup has led to
exorbitant profits by photogra-
phers,, duplication of contracts
and alleged fraud because of the
inexperience of dance commit-
adopt a plan which "would put
control of the picture-taking more
directly in the hands of the Uni-
Under his plan, lensmen would
be paid by the dance commit-
tee and students would receive
from the photographer nega-
tives which could be printed by
any photo-finisher.
In addition, the dance commit-
tee would charge students a small
fee for the photographer's serv-
Although Gach's plan met with
some opposition from other pho-
tographers, it was favorably greet-
ed by members of the varsity com-
mittee last semester.

Calendar Not
Union student staffers appar-

gan when they published a campus
events calendar designed to keep
students "up-to-date."
For the staff fell behind the
times itself regarding several of
the listings in the free four-page
GULANTICS, FOR example, was
listed as taking place in April,

off Feb.25. Union Opera was
spread over five nights when it
should have been three, March 29,

Other corrections place Hil-
