Students Should Check
Eligibility To Vote Locally

Students intending to vote in
the elections this fall had better
look to their eligibility.
Aside from the usual age re-
quirement, only students who can
establish their Ann Arbor resi-
dence satisfactorily may register to
vote here, Fred J. Looker, Ann
Arbor City Clerk, said yesterday.
* * *
THIS MEANS that unless a stu-
dent is willing to swear that he
has no other home but Ann Ar-
bor, or if he has always lived here,
he can neither register nor vote
here. Students who have lived
here Just "while attending school
are out of luck.
However, married students
Prof. Perkins
Praised By
'U' Provost
University provost James P.
Adams yesterday praised Prof.
John A. Perkins who has been
named president of the University
of Delaware by saying that he "will
bring a fruitful experience" to his
new post.
Prof. Perkins, assistant provost
and member of the political sci-
ence department, was appointed
chief administrative officer at the
eastern institute Saturday.
Provost Adams made the follow-
ing statement yesterday concern-
Ing Prof Perkins' departure:
"We are very, sorry to see Prof.
Perkins leave the University. Our
very best wishes go with him in
the' important work which he is
about to undertake.
"To his new post he will bring
a fruitful experience in adminis-
tration-both in government and
in education-and an understand-
ing approach to the problems of
higher education.
"His abundant faith in the pro-
cesses of education in our Ameri-
can democracy will help him to
provide effective leadership in a
fellowshilp of teachers and schol-
Prof. Perkins has held the po-
sition of assistant provost since
1948. Formerly he was a state bud-

for Michigan.

British Expert
On Banking
To Tallh Today
Wilfred T. C. King, editor of The
Banker, a leading British banking
and financial monthly, will speak
at 4:15 p.m. today in the Archi-
tecture Auditorium on "Britain's
Economy Since the War."
King, who is also Assistant Edi-
tor of The Economist, standard
weekly publication on economics,
will lecture again tomorrow at 4:15
p.m. in Rm. 101 Economics Build-
ing on "Freedom and Controls of
British Banking."
King gained his first experience
In journalism as Money Market
Editor to the old Financial News
and later for a time in the city
office of the Daily Telegraph. In
1935 he returned to the Financial
News and published his "History
of the London Discount Market,"
a financial classic, the following

He was financial adviser to the
Ministry of Supply from 1940 until
V-E Day. In 1945 he joined The
Economist ,becoming an Assistant
Editor shortly after, and took over
the editorship of The Banker a
year later.

who have been living in Ann
Arbor, even though they are not
originally from this city are be-
ing registered, Looker said.
If a student living elsewhere in
Michigan wishes to vote, he may
write ~ his city clerk asking for
an application for an absentee
ballot. Students from Ohio must
write to their county election for
this application.
* * *
As for New Yorkers who wish
to vote in absentia: they must al-
ready have obtained their absen-
tee ballots before leaving the state.
Looker pointed out that students
in Ann Arbor are somewhat bet-
ter off than those in East Lans-
ing. The City Clerk there will not
register any students except those
whose home has always been in
East Lansing.
The reason for not registering
everyone, Looker said, is that files
become hopelessly cluttered up
with obsolete records after the
students leave town upon gradua-
tion. He estimated that of 2500 or
3000 obsolete records now in the
file, over eighty per cent of them
are students.
Student Draft
Looked Over
(Continued from page 1)
year grades would have to rank in
the top half of the class.
* * *
FULL TIME graduate and pro-
fessional students hoping for de-
ferment would have to be certified
by their colleges as "making satis-
factory progress and likely to com-
plete all degree requirements."
Anyone classified as 2-A could
avoid getting drafted during
summer vacation by presenting
evidence that 1) he plans to re-
turn in the fall and 2) he will
utilize the interval between aca-
demic years to somehow forward
his training program.
Once students get out of school
they might still be able to fall
under the 2-A classification. De-
ferred status would be granted to
students "fully engaged in the
professional pursuit for which
they trained, provided the activity
was essential to the national
health, safety or interest."
Special advisory committees
would be set up within selective
service to determine which activi-
ties were essential.
* . *.
THE WHOLE broad program is
predicated on the belief that mod-
ern nations, in order to survive,
must have adequate trained per-
sonnel in both civilian and mili-
tary pursuits. To this end the
plan strives to continue the flow of
persons to higher levels of learn-
ing and skill.
The plan-provides for flexibil-
ity in case of changing military
needs. By boosting or lowering
the program's academic require-
ments, the number of deferred
students could be handily regu-
Prof. E. Lowell Kelly, of the
psychology department, served on
the committee which devised the
projected system. He considered
as especially significant the pro-
posed classification of students
without regard to whether their
selected field was "essential."
To prepare a list of "essential"
fields "calls for an omniscience
which sane men hesitate to claim,"

the committee asserted. It is im-
possible to predict which types of
knowledge will be essential in any
particular future emergency, the
group claimed.

Blood Test
To Be Made
Dog tags for civilians will play
an important part in the State
of Michigan's new civilian de-
fense program.
The tags will carry the blood
type of each holder after he has
been tested. A pilot operation is
under way at Jackson for the mass
typing of the blood of all residents
from the youngest baby to the
oldest resident.
* * *
THE STATE Defense Council
named Jackson as the test spot.
The Council has an appropriation
of $500,000 from the State Legisla-
ture to start typing the blood of
3,000,000 persons. These plans re-
present the start of a "living
blood bank" which would be used
in case of atomic attack.
The immediate plan calls for
the typing of 60,000 people in
the Jackson area. The experi-
ence and results of this program
will be passed on to the State
Civil Defense Advisory Council.
The typing which began Mon-
day was directed at first toward
the members of the high school
and factory workers. The progress
will be regulated by the amount of
work technicians can do in lab-
oratories typing the blood.
The information compiled from
the tests will be filed on cards list-
ing names, sex, religion, birth date,
address and type of blood of each
person. Copies will go to state and
local authorities, the individual
typed and the dog tag manufac-
The ,operation which has been
estimated to take from three to
four weeks will also be carried on
at night in the high school.
Army Game
Still Re main
A limited number of reservations
for the Army-Michigan football
game are available until 5 p.m.
today in the lobby of the Adminis-
tration building, according to
George Benisek, Wolverine Club
publicity chairman.
"Since a few students have can-
celled their plane reservations at
the last minute, we have a few re-
servations left," he said. "The fare
by plane is $37 round trip, while
the train fare is $30."
In addition to transportation ar-
rangements, reservations can be
made for tickets, hotel rooms, and

Opera Star Helen Traubel
Buys Share in St. Louis Cu

NEW YORK-(R)--Helen Trau-
bel, blonde Metropolitan Opera
star who sang in Ann Arbor last
week, said yesterday she has
bought a part interest in the St.
Louis Browns baseball club "most-
ly to satisfy a sentimental urge."
She wouldn't reveal the size of
her investment but said "It is a
nice chunk."
"I've always been sentimental
about the Browns because they are

my first recollections of baseball."
the St. Louis-born singer said.
"The first loves of my life were
George Sisler, Babydoll Jacobson
and Urban Shocker.
"I've been a Browns fan all my
life. The Cards are second," Miss
Traubel said.
Bill Dewitt, president of the
Browns, confirmed the purchase.
He said he planned to have ,the'
opera star sing the national an-
