Broadway To Get Local
Shakespeare Production

Ann Arbor's Drama Season ha
gone "Broadway."
"Twelfth Night," prescented
here by last spring's Drama Sea-
son, will open Monday night at
the Empire Theatre in New York,
with seven members of the orig-
inal cast.
production is Prof. Valentine
Windt',, who piloted the show in
Ann Arbor, was given a leave of
absence until Oct. 10 to do the
staging in New York.
The comedy stars Arnold
Moss as Malvolio and Frances
Reid as Viola. Other perform-
ers in the New York cast who
also appeared here are Carl Ben-
ton Reid, Philip Tonge, Harry
Townes, and alumnus Truman

Plans Stalled
Local Carpenters
Ask Wage Boost
The five-day-old strike of AFL
carpenters against the Ann Arbor
Contractors Associationhas seri-
ously curtailed progress on three
University building projects, ac-
cording to Plant Supervisor Wal-
ter Roth and local contractors.
The walkout of carpenters from
18 county and city contractors'
organizations Monday followed a
demand for a 221/2-cent hourly
wage increase. Construction on the
Universities maternity house, golf
service and new coliseums was
hard hit by work stoppages.
* * *
MEANWHILE a tentative agree-
ment calling for a 10 to 1.1/2 cent
wage boost, effective Monday, was
made between the AFL building
trades laborers' union and the
Contractors Association, it was re-
ported yesterday.
Most drastically effected by
the carpenters' walkout is the
maternity house project, which
requires more work than the
other buildings combined, ac-
cording to the Bryant and Det-
wiler Construction Co. which is
handling the job.
"If strike settlement isn't de-
layed too long, work on the new
coliseum should be completed in
time for the University hockey
squad's initial game there Nov. 1,"
a spokesman for the company de-
"MOST OF THE remaining al-
terations do not require carpentry
skills," he added.
Fred Anderson, business agent
,for Carpenters' Lobal 512 told
reporters that about 70 .full-
time carpenters have been put
our of work by the strike,
"We are signing them on jobs
just as fast as possible, at wage
rates the men have requested-
$2.32 1/ hourly," he said.
* * *
"THERE'S NO excuse" for the
contractors' refusal to work, he
noted. As the 18 contractors'
groups employing carpenters con-
trol only five striking contractors,
an agreement should easily be
reached, he added.

Asked about a possible settle-
ment date, Anderson had no
comment "I don't know how
long they want to stall, but they
shouldn't attempt to be a bat-
gaining agency," he declared.
Thirty-two contractors unaf-
filiated with the Contractors' As-
sociation have already signed with
him, Anderson said.
WAYNE T. BELL, Superinten-
dent of the J. C. Hedin Construc-
tion Co. which is working on the
$7,000,000 Veterans Administra-
tion hospital, said the strike will
not necessarily effect that proj-

"JAZZ IS A SERIES of 24 col-
ored paper cutouts, one of the
most recent works of Matisse, the
89 year old French painter. They
are free interpretations of the
moods of American jazz, done in
bold and swirling patterns.
The exhibit was first shown
in America at the Matisse Ret-
rospective Exhibition at the
Philadelphia Museum of Art in
April, 1948.
It attracted quite as much at-
tention as any of the paintings
drawn from various periods of the
artist's long career, according to
Prof. Jean Paul Slusser, director of
the University Museum of Art.

Lecture Bureau Acorn Grew
Into U' Extension Service


University Extension Service,
with its five off-campus centers,
its many activities and its thou-
sands of students began as a small
lecture bureau.
In 1911, President Harry B.
Hutchins asked Dr. William D.
Henderson to spend one half day
each week handling requests for
the University faculty lectures.

IN 1918 the small lecture bureau
had grown to such an extent that
Dr. Henderson was asked to give

In response to' popular de-
mand, other departments and
services were added to extension
service. Within two years after
the extension service was estab-
lished, a class program was set
up in Detroit as a result of a
petition from 1,700 persons.
Dr. Henderson continued as di-
rector until his resignation in 1937
when he was succeeded by Dr.
Charles A. Fisher.

THE .PRESENT director is
Everett J. Soop who was appointed
in June, 1948 shortly after Dr.
Fisher's death.
During the 38 years of, its
existence, many services have
been added to the original lec-

Busy Lines Frustrate Phone Wooers

A cold war has hit Ann Arbor.
The two opposing factions in
this local conflict are the East-
West Quad telephone wooers and
the overworked operators of the
Women's Hall switchboard. At
present an impasse has been

Review Tax
Project To Handle
800 'U' Families
Tax assessment problems on the
proposed Stadium Hills Housing
project were reviewed yesterday
at a meeting of University Vice-
President Robert P. Briggs with
the Ann Arbor Board of Realtors.
Owned by the University, the
project will accomodate 800 fam-
ily units if present plans go
* * *
A RESOLUTION favoring the
admittance of the areas, "provided
the land is placed on the tax rolls
at a fair assessment value at the
time of annexation," was passed
by the Board of Realtors.
Vcie-President Briggs said in
his talk before the Realtors that
"the Regents do not have the
authority to place the property
on the tax rolls. According to
law, land owned by the Univer-
sity is tax exempt and this can-
not be changed."
"But if the Stadium Hills prop-
erty is developed it is the sincere
intention of the Regents to see
that it does go on the tax rolls,"
Briggs said.
IN THIS connection Briggs re-
viewed the agreement made a few
years ago that the regents would
"work out a narrangement with
the city whereby the University
would reimburse the city for the
extra cost of services and utilities
needed in the University area."
Petitions favoring the addi-
tion of Stadium Hills and neigh-
boring Barnard Heights to Ann
Arbor have been circulated but
not filed.
Vice-President Briggs expressed
his belief in the continuation of
a serious housing shortage in his
talk before the real estate board.
"I DOUBT that we will ever see
the day when the enrollment is
less than 20,000.
The "substandard housing con-
ditions of 500 faculty and depart-
mental employees, the threefold
incnease in the gnaduate schools,
and the gnowing crop of students
who will enter the University were
cited by Briggs as factors necessi-
tating increased housing facili-

board operators are developing a
persecution complex.
"It isn't our fault," they ex-
claimed. "We work as fast as we
can, but so many calls come in at
once that we can't handle them
all promptly."
A day at the switchboard, they
claimed, leaves them almost too
tired to clumb off their stools.
"We can't help it if the girls are
so popular," they added.
They also hinted that the Quad
operators weren't so quick to an-
swercalls on their switchboard
*, * *
Investigation revealed that there
are only two lines going directly
from the women's switchboard to
each Quad. Although ten of these
lines will eventually be in opera-
tion, the present arrangement has
resulted in a night-marish clutter-
ing of the wires.
Quaders do not have to use
the direct lines, however, and
might get better service if they
tried a dial phone, the women's
operators suggested.
If relief is not soon forthcom-
ing, University women may have
something to worry about. Accord-
