SELECT GENERATION COVER-John Goodyear, '52A, Genera-
tion Art director, confers with Carol Kritchman, '52A, (center)
and Ernie Winston, '53A, in examining entries for the Generation
cover contest. The contest, which closes Friday, is sponsored by
the student art magazine to select a cover design for the winter
issue. According to Managing Editor Don Hope, '52, the design
should be in keeping with the general contents of the book, "un-
pretentious, un-'arty' and not keyed to the intelligentsia."

THE
CITY BEAT
Fifty-seven acres of land next
to the Huron Hills Municipal Golf'
Course will be purchased by the
city at a $17,000 option price.
The property will probably not
be converted into a golf course,,
according to City Council mem-
bers.
Mayor William E. Brown, Jr.,
said the adjacent 18-hole course
may be taken away from the city
by the corporation leasing it. The
University also has a "defiiite in-
terest" in the golf course, Mayor
Brown said, but "I don't believe it
will take the land from the leasing
firm although it has the right to."
The Mayor said the property to
be bought by Ann Arbor would be
worthless if the University or the
corporation took over the course.
He added that the Council intend-
ed to stage a bitter fight if such
action came about.
A new city fire station will be
built on East Stadium Blvd., it
became known yesterday.
Purchase options of $7,000 for
the four-lot site east of Pack-
ard St. were signed yesterday,
according to Roland Schmid,
chairman of the Ann Arbor Fire
Commission.

"I CAN'T SEE spending the tax-
payers' money just to go along and
be a good fellow," Alderman Wil-
liam J. Saunders said at Monday
night's City Council meeting.
Nevertheless, the Council went
ahead and voted to renew Ann
Arbor's membership in the Michi-
gan Municipal'League. Ald. Saun-
ders, who voted against Ald. John
S. Dobson's motion for continu-
ing membership, said that League
services would require more money
than the annual $929 membership
fee. But other councilmen replied
that only city-requested services
required spending extra funds.
The proposal for the fee pay-
ment will come up at a later Coun-
cil meeting. Ald. Dobson's motion
included only the membership re-
newal.
The Council's action had been
defeated by two previous votes
when money to pay the League
dues couldn't be mustered up.

Germ Warfare
WASHINGTON - (P) - The
army's top man in biological war-
fare research said last night that
it would be possible for an enemy
to envelop a whole city in a dense
smog of disease germs loosed from
special bombs or shells.
It seems likely, he added, that
the percentage of the city's popu-
lation which would fall victim to
the chosen disease would be high.
The speaker, Brig. Gen. Wil-
liam M. Creasy, said "The poss-
bilities are great" for a damaging
biological attack on this country
by that or other means.
But despite his grim outline of
what might happen he declared
that the possibilities "are fright-
ening only if we give way to panic
or if we fail to insure that we are
ahead of any other nation in
knowledge and preparedness in
this field."

By GAYLE GREENE
Three pots, a stoic Egyptian na-
tive and a University professor are
the prominent figures in the story
of a small, green fluted decanter
now in Museum of Archaeology.
It all happened during a Uni-
versity excavation of the Third
Century Egyptian town of Karan-
is. Headed by Prof. Enoch Peter-
son of the archaeology department,
the expedition was engaged in un-
covering the ruins of the ancient
town when the decanter was un-
earthed through the efforts of a
75-year-old native.
EACH COMPANY of workers
Generation Staff
Positions Named
The following people have been
appointed to senior and junior
staff positions on Generation.
Those appointed include Don
Hope, '52, managing editor; Nedra
May, '53, associate editor; John
Goodyear, '52A, art director; Bob:
Rose, '53, business manager. -
Also appointed were Barbara
Hoefeld, '53, junior staff co-ordi-
nator; Fred Levitt, '53, fiction edi-
tor; Mel Zerman, '52, drama edi-
tor; Robert Golten, '54, circulation
director; and Oscar Dodek, '53, ad-
vertising- manager.

had been assigned to dig in a spe-
cified area and this native, Mo-
hammed Abd-El-Kareem, h a d
been assigned to head one division.
When he complained, however,
that he had no luck the Uni-
versity Archaeologist moved him
to the courtyard where the
Egyptian dug up a large covered
pot.
Since the workers themselves
are, not allowed to open objects
they find, Prof. Peterson was call-
ed.
When asked what he had found
the native's only reply was "Min
arif," 'which means in English,
"who knows?" Prof. Peterson lift-
ed the stone off the mouth of the
pot, but found nothing inside.
A FEW DAYS LATER, another
pot was unearthed by the native
and the same conversation ensued
with the same stoical shrug of the
shoulders accompanied by the
worker's "min arif."
A few hours later the professor
was summoned a third time, to op-
en a muchsmaller pot which had
been unearthed.
This time, however, when Prof.
Peterson removed the slab of
stone he found what was later
discovered to be the only known
piece of fluted glassware of that
period as well as 18 other pieces
of Egyptian glass.
The green fluted decanter, an
engraved pitcher and all but one
of the pieces are now in the Uni-
versity Museum of Archaeology.
About four inches high, the jar
was undoubtedly used by the Egyp-
tians as a cosmetic container. In
it were found a rag and two pins
with a dark green powder on their
tips.
In olden days the powder was
made from crushed stone and ap-
plied to the eyelashes and often
to the eyelids also as a means of
protection against the rays of the
sun, Prof. Peterson explained.
