Local Organization Keeps
Tabs on Student Credit
Is your credit good-or nil?
Local merchants and profes-
sional men pose this touchy ques-
Uon daily to the Ann Arbor Credit

OFTEN TABBED as the "eco-

Bureau staffers compile statisti-
cal data on students and towns-
people and file them in report
These reports are furnished
city creditors upon request, en-

or not a particular credit appli-
cant is a good investment.

SL PRESIDENT John Ryder
4poke on the acceptance by the
Congress of the "Michigan Plan,"
Which prohibits any new organi-
gation on a campus that has a
discriminatory clause in its con-
SL Member Leon Rechtman
'also spoke on discrimination, to-
ward which the Congress was
generally opposed. The Congress
approved a resolution to provide
for students to study out of en-
vironments where they might
acquire prejudice, and to.pro-
miote fair educational process
laws that would prohibit forms
of institutional discrimination.
Delegate Al Wildman told of the
Congress' support of Federal Aid
to Education. One project was to
provide for a scholarship program,
similar to the G.I. Bill of Rights,
whereby scholarships would be
awarded to a student not only ac-
Cording to his needs, but that he
would have the added advantage

ALL ARE LOCALLY owned to
"standardize and simplify the
local flow of information between
communities," according to local
manager Jay Barrett.
Sole sources of revenue for
operation are the 219 local mem-
bers of the Credit Bureau-Ann
Arbor store owners, small shop-
keepers and businessmen. Bet-
ter than 50 per cent of city
stores extending credit belong
to the Bureau, Barret said.
Staffers have found the job of
keeping up with civic affairs is no
cinch. Every day they must check
records at the Court House, City
Hall and public utilities for infor-
mation on divorces, building per-
mits and whereabouts of migra-
A LARGE VOLUME of credit is
extended to students Barrett re-
ported. Many of them have start-
ed their credit histories in Ann
Arbor, he added.
During 1948, the Bureau fur-
nished merchants complete re-
ports on 21,298 -students and
local citizens, he declared. '
Explaining the office's func-
tions, Barrett emphasized that
"we at no time classify or rate
anyone." The Bureau neither rec-
ommends nor rejects anyone-
store owners form their own opin-
ions of credit applicants on a fac-
tual basis, he noted.
* * *
AND RATHER than oversell to
a buyer whose income is reported
by the Bureau to be in a "low"
bracket, merchants usually decline
the account, he said.
Credit records are handed on
wherever the individual goes. "As
usage expands, a person's credit is
sure to build up," Barrett ex-
Mixer To Be
Held at Union
A Union mixer featuring the
music of Frank House and his or-
chestra will offer something
unique in the way of listening
parties during tomorrow's Mich-
Scheduled to start at game time,
the mixer will be held in the
North Lounge of the Union. Radios
will be scattered around the room
for those who wish to follow the
game between dances.
In addition, a large chalk board
will be placed at one end of the
room and the action of every play
will be graphically, recorded as it
comes over the radio.
No admission will be charged for
the mixer, according to Irv. Barill,

Competition in the field of pub-
lications will become even more
intense on Monday with the pub-
lication of the first issue of

"Harpy," according to its staff,
"is a name decided upon after a

a cross-section of Angell House
residents." This study, added to
the inspiration produced by the
dormitory's name, brought forth
LYNNE STARR, a reporter on
Harpy's staff, is confident that
"Harpy will be more than just an-
other dormitory newspaper; it
will be of interest to the whole

by its advertisements, a nominal

Students will bare arms for in-
fluenza shots next week when
Health Service begins its second
barrage to keep the campus epi-
According to Dr. Thomas Fran-
cis, professor of epidemiology, the
vaccine currently being used gives
protection against flu virus A, B
and A prime. "These three types
cover the range of strains of flu
virus that have been encountered,"
*V * *
DR. FRANCIS, who is recog-
nized as an outstanding authority
on influenza in the country, said
fundamental studies in protection
against influenza have been con-
ducted for the past eight years by
the Commission on Influenza of
the Army Epidemiological Board,
of which he is director.
The vaccine was prepared by
growing the flu virus in fertil-
ized eggs and then concentrat-
ing the virus in the fluids sur-
rounding the embryo.
IN 1943, a study of the effect of
the vaccine in army personnel on
this campus and other universi-
ties proved it capable of includ-
ing protection against flu A. Un-
der similar conditions in 1945, the
vaccine was effective against flu'
However, in 1947, the same
vaccine gave no protection
against flu A prime, according to
Dr. Francis. "Since then," he
said, "the additional strain has
been added to the vaccine."
Dr. Warren Forsythe, Health
Service director, also strongly ad-
vised students to take advantage
of these injections as a precau-
tionary measure against flu.
This year the students will not
have to take their injections in al-
phabetical order, according to Dr.,
