City Well Organized
For Civilian Defense

Staff of 1000 KING OF THE KITCHEN:

Ann Arbor has not been tardy
in organizing for the first nation-
al civilian defense to be set up in
peacetime, Prof. Arthur Bromage,
local civil defense director, said
During the summer, a civil de-
fense staff was appointed for Ann
Arbor as a first step in creating a
coherent and inclusive system of
disaster prevention in case of at-
Signals and procedures have
been set up for everyone to follpw
in the event of an attack, Prof.
Bromage said. It is very important
that all persons living in Ann Ar-
bor, students included, be aware
of these signals and procedures, he
The air raid warning signals,
which will be standard throughout"
the state, will be sounded simul-
taneously on the steam sirens lo-
cated at the University power
house and the King-Seeley Corp.
plant, and the mechanical sirens
in the tower of the An'n Arbor Fire
A "red alert" will be sounded if
an attack is imminent. This will
consist of a continuous three min-
ute blast on all the sirens and will

indicate that "hostile aircraft have
been identified and are within our
Air Defense sector or within ad-
jacent sectors with a high prob-
ability of entering our sector."
The second signal will be known
as a "white signal" and will mean
that the danger is past. It will be
indicated by three one-minute
blasts each separated by two min-
utes of silence.
Instructions to be closely fol-
lowed by everyone in case of an
air attack were also given by Prof.
Bromage. If a red alert sounds, try
not to get panicky, he advised.
Don't run out into the street to
see what is happening, and if you
are at home, in class, or at work,
the smart thing to do is to stay
there, he further counseled.
If out on the street, take cover
in the nearest building, and if you
are driving a car, park it at once
and seek shelter. Be sure the car
is left out of the traffic lanes and
away from fire plugs, hospital en-
trances, and anything else that
may be important, Prof. Bromage
The best thing to do, if you are
in a building, is to seek shelter in
the basement away from doors and
windows, he advised.
Finally, Prof. Bromage said,
don't use the telephone unless it
is an extreme emergency.
Since its organization the civil
defense staff has been working to-
ward coordinating the .civil de-
fense efforts of other cities, towns,
and villages in this area. Fire
Chief Ben Zahn has completed a
mutual-aid agreement with the
Chelsea Fire department and it is
expected that other agreements
will be forthcoming.
Union Cards
Union membership cards may be
picked up from 3 to 5 p.m. Monday
through Friday at the Union stu-
dent offices according to Fred
Eittmer, '52, Union councilman.

Will ConductI
India Survey
With an ultimate view toward
aiding human welfare, The India
National Sample Survey will get
underway this month Prof. P. C.
Mahalanobis, director of the In-
dia Statistical Institute, said yes-
Prof. Mahalanobis, sponsored by
the Department of Mathematics
and the Survey Research Institute,
said that the initial aim of the sur-
vey is to collect information re-
lating to India's national income,
beginning with a comprehensive
survey of economic conditions in
rural areas.
The staff of 1,000 investigators
hopes to be able to extend its work
to urban areas as soon as possible.
The staff members will try to
collect information in terms of
quantities, commodities and 'ser-
vice rather than merely in terms
of money, Prof. Mahalanobis stat-
ed. The National Income Commit-
tee needs statistics to establish a
sound economic policy, and when
we know what the people are eat-
ing, we will have a good basis of
information as our guide, he said.
The survey will be conducted in
1800 villages located all over In-
dia. There will be six independent
surveys of 300 villages each, cover-
ing a rural population of about 300
Fifteen to twenty languages will
have to be used by the staff mem-
bers because of the number of dia-
lects spoken in the rural areas,
Prof. Mahalanobis stated. A stan-
dard of investigation will also have
to be set up to minimize the in-
vestigators' bias.
Prof. Mahalanobis is advisor on
statistics to the Indian govern-
ment, and is also the present
chairman of the United Nations
subcommission on s t a tis tical
sampling. He was one of the
founders of The Indian Statistical
Institute, which is located in Cal-
cutta. The survey will provide a
continuous flow of information for
the Planning Commission of India,
to help it formulate national so-
cial, economic and agricultural
programs. The main advantage of
the survey is that it will be con-
ducted on a country-wide basis,
and will pi-ovide an overall view of
the economic situation through in-
dependent reports.



"Culinary art is a dying science,"
according to an expert Chef Nar-
cisco Apraiz of the Union dining
The Chef, who runs the kitchen
with an old-fashioned gallantry
based on a strict hierarchy of wait-
er, cook and chef, claimed that
no young men were willing to serve
the strenuous apprenticeship which
would fit them for top jobs in so-
ciety clubs and hotels.
He, himself, served his appren-
ticeship in the Basque country of
Southern France. He rose at 3
a.m. to start fires in the enormous
ranges which were then in use,
and stayed on his feet doing kit-
chen chores until 8 or 10 p.m.
While he labored he was able
to watch the master chefs pre-
paring delicacies for the French
vacationists who flocked to the
Biarritz area to escape Parisian
At the Union he has not had
much chance to utilize his talents
at creating ladies' slippers froin
tongues, or lamb chop crowns, but
he rules the football team's sto-
machs from his oven-lined do-
Asked why the team didn't live
up to expectations last' Saturday,
he blasted, "No more soft rolls,
that team needs hard ones."
But the Union doesn't offer
enough facilities for a chef who
has served at the Waldorf-Astoria,
the Edgewater Beach, Antoine's in
New Orleans, and the Detroit Golf
Club, he said.
"My profession is for exclusive
clubs, where I can fix my own bud-
get. There the people are used to
and will pay for delicacies."
Apraiz has served at the Union
twice, the first time from 1925
to 1935 and the second when he

CHEF'S DELIGHT-Union Chef Narciso Apraiz demonstrates

the stove area of the .Union kitchen. Apraiz has been in Ann Ar-
bor since 1944.

returned to Ann Arbor in 1944.
"I guess I just like Ann Arbor,"
was the only reason he could give
for his return.
Under his domination, new wait-
ers at the Union are impressed by
the strict formality which charac-
terizes the kitchen. To build
friendly spirit in the staff Apraiz
demands that each waiter say

"Good evening" before ordering
his meals. If he hasn't, he cannot
receive an order.
New waiters are all boiler-mak-
ers," he claimed. This term has
mysterious origins, which Apariz
did not reveal, but packs a tre-
mendous wallop when muttered
by the Chef in the complete siience
that occurs after a tray of dishes
has fallen and broken.
After six years of boiler-makers
the Chef is seriously considering
retiring-to write books on the cul-
nary art.
"All the great chefs I've worked
with have written books, and I
challenge any dietician or recently
trained cook to tell me something
I don't know."
"The main problem for the
modern cook is cleanlineos 'and
sanitation. If chefs fed the people
right," he claimed, "we wouldn't

tuted for her mother in the choir
of the local church.
Her first engagement outside her
home town came when she went
on a six weeks tour with the St.
Louis SymplTony in 1925. Offered
a Metropolitan audition the fol-
lowing year, after her first New
York appearance, she turned it
down claiming that she was not
yet ready for the big time.
Not until 1939 did she at last
feel secure enough to give a con-
cert in New York's Tawn, Hall.
By March of the next year the
critics were voicing her claim as
the first lady of the Metropolitan
and one of the greatest Wagnerian
sopranos of all time.

BERLIN - (/) - A touring

told how he came back from a
dangerous trip into the forbidden
Russian Army area and got a
peek at secret new Soviet wea-
Rep. Thurmond Chatham (D-
NC said a Soviet officer eager to
pay off an old debt of friendship
took him on the 50-mile jeep ride
which included such points of in-
terest as a newly completed air-
field and an armored infantry
Asked if he realized what might
have happened had he been

"I've spent most of my life get-

cer in civilian clothing in a West
Berlin night club. The Russian
was so pleased he threw his arms
around him, and after a chat of-
fered a trip into occupied East
The Russian changed into the
uniform of a senior army officer
for the ride.
At an airfield completed but

six weeks ago, Chatham said, he
saw the swept-back-wing jets
which appeared as fast as the
latest American types.
At the armored compound he
saw about 20 of the new type
tanks lined up. He said they were
only about three feet high and
looked to be low enough to scut-
tle beneath the normal trajectory
of an anti-tank gun. But they
were heavy enough to pack long-
muzzled guns, probably of about
90 millimeters.
U.S. Intelligence sources said
they knew about the fast jets in
Germany, but not about the new
type tanks.
Chatham said he would turn all
photographs he had taken behind
the Iron Curtain over to the
