Tiny Twirler
To Lead Band
Today's game will mark the
second appearance of the March-
ing Band's new Drum Minor.
Five year. old Eugene Waxman,
who surprised and delighted foot-
ball fans at last week's contest
with Indiana by leading the band
down the field in its pre-game
march, will again strut around
the stadium before the kick-off
this afternoon.
THIS MINIATURE baton twirl-
er, a pupil at Tappan kindergar-
ten, was recently discovered by
Prof. William D. Revelli and the
band members, who noticed his
ability at mimicking their maneu-
vers during practice at Ferry
They decided that a Drum
Minor was just the thing the
band had always needed, and
approached Mrs. Waxman for
her permission.
Eugene has been marking time
to music since he was two and
a half, Mrs. Waxman revealed.
By the time he was three he could
sing "Varsity" and "The Victors,"
she added.

"SINCE HIS sudden rise to
fame, we have heard nothing but
'The Victor's March' playing all
day on the Victrola."
The band bought Eugene a
ticket to the Purdue game so
he could witness a performance
given in full array. Eugene

Slide Rule Abductors

-Daily-Herb Harrington
CASE OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY-Five law students carry the giant slide rule they kidnapped
from the office of the Technic into the Governor's chamber at East Lansing. Because Governor
Williams was attending a convention in Tennessee at the time, the "slip-stick" was presented to
his secretary as a "gift to the people of Michigan." The laywers learned later to their distress
that they had taken the wrong slide rule. And so ended yet another chapter in the 50-year-old
feud between engineers and lawyers, with the victory in this case going to the ingenious engineers.

Engieer SliOe Over on Lawyers

Following a series of confusing
and mysterious events, beginning
in the office of the Michigan
Technic and ending in the Gov-
ernor's mansion at East Lansing,
engineers won a major victory in
their 50-year-old feud with the
A band of 30 lawyers entered
the Technic office Friday night
and absconded with what they be-
lieved to be the historical and sym-
bolic giant slide rule.
SHOULDERING the huge "slip-
stick," they charged back to the
Law Club and hid it in one of the
sub-cellars of the building.
But unknown to the prema-
turely jubilant lawyers, the slide
rule they had taken was a

phoney, planted there by enter-
prising engineers.
Engineers had anticipated for
several weeks that the lawyers
would attempt the theft of the
slide rule, symbol of tonight's Slide
Rule Ball, and had prepared a
dummy of the genuine slide rule.
* * *
YESTERDAY morning, the law-
yers who had taken the replica
of the slide rule discovered to their
chagrin, that it had disappeared
from the basement hiding place.
A hasty search was made and
the dummy slide rule was redis-
covered in an adjoining cellar of
the Law Club where another
group of lawyers had taken it
for use in a forthcoming lawyer's

Tossy Spivakovsky To Give
Third Extra Series Concert

Tossy Spivakovsky, hailed by
music critics as one of the most
important new violinists of our
time, will make his first Ann Ar-
bor appearance at 8:30 p.m. Tues-
day at Hill Auditorium.
Spivakovsky, who will be giving
the third Extra Series concert,
caused a sensation in San Fran-
cisco last year when he appeared
with the Symphony and played
the Bela Bartok Concerto.
AS REPORTED in Time, it was
the greatest ovation on the West
Coast that anyone could remem-
ber, and moved the Orchestra's
manager to exclaim, "This is the
most exciting thing that's hap-
pened since the opera house was
built! "
CED Decides
To Continue
Full Progran
The Committee to End Discrim-
ination voted yesterday to con-
tinue all parts of its program to
eliminate questions which might
be used for discriminatory pur-
poses from application blanks.
This decision followed an an-
nouncement by Jim Jans that the
Student Legislature plans to ask
deans of all the colleges for rea-
sons why discriminatory clauses
should not be removed from ad-
mission applications.
The Committee also reported
that its anti-discrimination peti-
tion drive to garner student sup-
port is continuing in the residence
halls. Plans were made for similar
drives among the faculty, in fra-
ternities, sororities, and league
houses, and at Willow Run Id
University Terrace.

Chronicle critic Arthur Frank-
enstein, rated one of the top
West Coast music critics, heaped
praise on Spivakovsky the next
day in his review, declaring,
"There were only two questions
that people asked each other-
was this the best since the sen-
sational debut of Heifetz 30
years ago, or was this just the
best, period?" and concluded
that "you can answer either
question in the affirmative so
far as this department is con-

Critic Virgil Thomson stated
that "Mr. Spivakovsky's violin
playing in the piece was unforget-
table. Such unfailing nobility of
tone, such evenness of coloration
through the scale and, most ex-
traordinary of all, such impeccable
pitch ... left one a little gasping.
One is not used to this kind of
work from violinists."

SRA To Hold,
Open House
The Student Religious Associa-
tion will hold its third annual
"Rose Bowl" open house at 8:30
p.m. today in Lane Hall.
Anticipating a winning perform-
ance by the Wolverines, SRA has
planned an evening of song and
dance to celebrate Michigan's cap-
ture of the Western Conference

headed for East Lansing, with the
slide rule tucked safely in the back
* * *
THREE OF THE lawyers, placed
the slide rule under their arms and
unmolested, carried it through the
capital and into the Governor's
Unfortunately, or as it later
turned out, fortunately, for the
lawyers, Governor Williams was
in Tennessee, attending a con-
Undaunted, however, the law-
yers presented the slide rule to
the governor's secretary as a
gift to the "people of the state."
"We gave it as a symbol of our
loyalty to the state of Michigan
and a token of our esteem for Gov-
ernor Williams," one of , the law-
yers explained.
THE GENUINE slit'mile is
now under lock and key, its hiding
place a top secret, according to
Lexie Herrin '50E, managing edi-
tor of the 'Technic.
"The hopeless failure of the
lawyers to get the genuine slide
rule should be accepted as an
example of the superiority of sci-
entific planning over 'legal rea-
soning," Herrin added.
The 'scientific planning' of the
engineers last year prevented the
theft of the slide rule, but in 1947
the lawyers were victorious, when
the genuine slide rule was success-
fully kidnapped.
"I never thought engineers were
that smart," a crest-fallen lawyer
commented after being told of the
"I wonder what the governor
will think when he finds out we
palmed off a phony slide rule," he

'U' to Assist

O f Lamprey
Government fish and wild life
iuthorities will conduct a full scale
cientific war on the sea lamprey
at the University next fall.
Paul Thompson, Assistant Chief
of Fishery Biology for the Fish and
Wild Life Service, said Thursday
that University officials have of-
fered space and "excellent library
research facilities" for the battle
against the lamprey.
* * *
THOMPSON told the Associated
Press that the fight against the
"plague" of the Great Lakes will
also be directed from major sub-
stations at:
1. Charlevoix, Mich., through
alteration and expansion of the
lake trout fish hatchery adjoin-
ing the Charlevoix Coast Guard
Base. Six biologists and a boat
are to be based there for inten-
sive work in the Upper Peninsula
2. A Wisconsin or Minnesota
site yet to be selected on Lake
Superior. Both statesdhave sug-
gested locations and both are es-
pecially interested because the
lamprey, having devastated the
fisheries of Lakes Michigan and
Huron, now are moving against
the trout in Lake Superior.
* * *
AN EEL-LIKE water animal,
the sea lamprey attaches itself to
fish, killing them.
"Our especial aim is to find a
weak link in the life history of the
sea lamprey, and to attack him
there," Thompson said.
He pointed out that the agency
is working closely with officials in
Ontario, Canada, where fishermen
are suffering along with the
American fishing industry from
the drop of several million pounds
in the annual yield.
Jacobs Hits
Welfare State
As Dangerous
Americans may be completely
relieved of their political burdens
if the movement toward the wel-
fare state continues, according to
Clyde Jacobs, of the political sci-
ence department.
Participating in a Political Sci-
ence Round Table, he also advo-
cated a "positive policy of laissez-
faire and abandoning the social
security program."

JACOBS TOOK an affirmative
stand on the question "Does the
Trend Toward the Welfare State
Present Any Dangers to the Indi-
vidual and the Nation?"
"Progress through private ini-
tiative means happiness," he
Advocating the trend toward the
welfare state, Mrs. Elspeth Wal-
lace, Grad., said that the govern-
ment should provide "a minimum
of decency with dignity" for the
common man.
